What is a Simple Choice?

A simple and wise choice in food offering can make a big difference to our environment, health, community, and world at large.
What do we mean by a simple offering and its choice?
It means offering what you eat at home, what you grow in your garden; and what you can effort as simple as a leaf of spinach and a finger of banana. 
Here is a list of simple but eco-friendly and sustainable feast offering items that you may offer next time when you visit the temple or at your home. 

  1. Cooked rice
  2. Boiled potatoes 
  3. Cooked vegetables
  4. Egg
  5. Dried spinach 
  6. Cooked pumpkin
  7. Boiled maize
  8. Butter
  9. Cooked Mushroom
