A Buddhist Cosmology in Food

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products

Abstract

Buddhists in Sri Lanka relate to the visible and invisible beings around them by way of food offerings. The recipients include buddhas, gods, animals, hungry ghosts and human beings. In Sri Lanka cooking is still largely the domain of women but the voices of those who prepare the food are rarely heard, their expertise as religious specialists seldom acknowledged. This series of six short documentaries reveals a cosmology that emerges from the kitchens and backyards of Sri Lanka. The project was in part funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
