Autumn Editorial

Now that the Autumn equinox has passed, we are experiencing the darker afternoons and the late rising of the sun in the northern hemisphere.  Ianthe Pickles has brought us her recent memories of summer with her personal take on Summer Days on the Allotmenta mindful and relaxing observation of the animals, plants and the drama of nature in the raw.

Chico Dall’igna’s latest film, More Than One Life is being released.  Here, the trailer contains cameos of participants in the final film and the beginnings of the search for the rebirth of Akong Tulku Rinpoche.

Maeve O’Sullivan’s latest edition of haiku and senryu, Wasp on a Prayer Flag, takes into account her vivid and most importantly her humane take on the varied aspects of life both in Ireland and abroad.

Lastly, Ron Hirch’s new series of videos, The Practical Buddhist: Coming Home, is available on line.

Subscription to Many Roads for Bodhicharya is FREE.

Wishing everyone peace and happiness over the coming month

“You are what you eat.” 

In this issue there are several articles about food including two recipes from Joys of Nepalese Cooking by Indra Majapuria.  The recipes in her book are authentic, Nepalese fare:  there are sections on soups, rice, pulses, noodles and vegetables.  Multifarious meat and fish dishes are also covered.

Monica Wilde
has a Masters degree in herbal medicine from the University of Central Lancashire.  She also runs foraging courses as well as creating recipes published on her site, including Nettle Cheese, Cooking with Seaweed, Clover Crispbreads and other unusual delicacies.  In this issue we feature Monica’s  Gratitude for Plants, sharing her interest in the spontaneous occurrence of plants … “just when you need them,” following the Cherokee creation belief that “each tree, shrub and herb, down to the grasses… shall appear to help man when he calls upon me in his need.”

Gavin Haines‘ article on the efficacy of honey in the relief of colds and coughs as an alternative to over-the-counter drugs makes for interesting reading.  Many of his articles can be sourced in Positive News, “A magazine for good journalism about the things that are happening.”

Take care and wishing everyone a safe journey through the current times.
