Lama Soup

A shear delight that is said to aid study and acumen, one of the staples from the Dalai Lama’s kitchen himself!

LAMA SOUP

Lama in the Kachung language means teacher. Like Guru in English, it is simply a teacher. This recipe originates from Monasteries where the students study hard and are needing a pick-me-up and motivator when struggling to keep up.

First, you need a large pot.

Seven to twenty-one stones.

A ready supply of water.

…………………………………………………………………………….

Place the pot on the stove and add water.

Place the stones in the pot and bring the water to boil.

Keep boiling and adding water as the soup evaporates.

Keep adding water.

Boil.

After 1 – 10 lifetimes of this procedure, the soup might be ready.

Tip the remaining water down the drain.

Throw away the rocks.

What you have left is emptiness, the essence of Buddhism, the essentials of Buddhism, “Enlightenment!”

Now get rid of the pot …along time between meals and no soup either. Haggle about the price though as the people of Kachung will respect you more.

The soup is said to be an interpretation of how a Lama teaches Buddhism to Westerners!
