Be a happy vegetarian with Mandarin

Updated: Jul 1, 2020

As a vegetarian, helping vegetarian students to smoothly get the foods using Mandarin is for sure one of what I most want to do.


However I never thought I will get the awesome Indian breakfast from my students wife nor the art crafts from their child, and not even to mention meeting the Maitreya Buddha from India.


Actually the value of family, the respect to teacher, the hospitality towards guests from Indian culture are all just exactly the same as our traditional value. I might also had been an Indian cultivator in one past life, especially I’m such an Indian food lover.


The more you devote, the more you get fulfilled, for both teachers and students, languages and cultures.


How wonderful morning it is as accomplishing the vegetarian task with my excellent students.


Cheers! 乾杯🍻!gān bēi!


這是我當華語老師最想做的事之一,

幫助學生透過中文在台灣順利吃素。

話說是幫助學生,自己卻獲得了更多。

學生的太太熱情地為我們準備了一頓極好吃的印度早餐;學生的孩子在我們離開前,害羞地送給我他自己做的摺紙手作;

我們還驚喜地遇見來自印度的彌勒佛像。


我常覺得印度文化中對於家庭的看重,

對於老師的尊重,還有對待客人的熱情,

其實跟我們的傳統價值,如出一轍。

而我又這麼愛吃印度菜,或許在過去世中,

我真的曾是一個跟著佛陀修行的印度人。
