Welcome to the Krsnatarian way of cooking……..
The Vedas present a nature-centered model of creation where there is a natural interrelationship between humans, animals, birds, insects, trees, rivers, mountains and all the other elements of nature.
Nature has been designed by incorporating an intrinsic utility in all its elements, thereby creating a symbiotic interdependence among them.
You can refer to this chart for clarification of Human diet:
According to the oldest yoga texts, there are three modes of material nature: goodness, passion, and ignorance. Every living being is influenced by these material modes, including all plants and animals.
The types of food that we eat are major factors that result in the dominance of one mode over the other.
Kṛṣṇatarian offers you with vegetarian, vegan way of cooking your food which also doesn’t include onion, garlic or mushrooms to it.
Onions and garlic are also said to increase the mode of passion in a person and they root the consciousness more firmly in the body in a way which is detrimental for meditational or devotional practices as they have a more gross impact.
Garlic and onions are also avoided by spiritual practitioners because they stimulate the central nervous system.
Also in the ancient culinary bhakti-yoga tradition mushrooms are not cooked as they are considered unfit foods to prepare in sacred food offerings due to their fungal nature.
Plant life also exhibits some level of consciousness and consuming them also includes a certain degree of karma.
That is why these vegetarian or vegan foods when prepared as an offering of love to the Supreme being spiritualizes or transcends those karmic reactions.
This Supreme being in the ancient Vedic texts is called by the name Vishnu or Kṛṣṇa which literally means “The Most Attractive”.
That is what it means to be a “Krsnatarian”.
I’ve made this website to facilitate this purpose and if it inspires you then you can one day start preparing your meals as an offering of Love to that Supreme being who is providing us with abundance.
