Making food for the Buddha

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


All over Sri Lanka food offerings for the Buddha are prepared every day. On full-moon holidays special care is taken and the meals are more elaborate. Offerings start before dawn with pre-breakfast offerings (rice gruel) and finish with tea and herbs in the afternoon in accordance with the rules concerning permissible foods laid down in the Buddhist monastic code (Vinaya). The video is part of a set of documentaries that looks at the cosmology that emerges from the kitchens of Sri Lanka.
