The Dining Experience – Our famous Cuisine
Welcome to the Kwan Yin Dining Hall at Tao Garden! Kwan Yin means “Observing the Sounds of the World.” As the bodhisattva of compassion, she hears the cries of all beings. Kwan Yin is revered by East Asian Buddhists, by Chinese Taoists as an Immortal, and is roughly equivalent to Green Tara in Tibetan Buddhism. Kwan Yin teaches us to live simply and mindfully, taking good care of our bodies, our thoughts and our spirits.
As you walk down the covered bridge to the large attractive open air dining room you notice orchids growing in pots on either side. Water surrounds the hall on three sides. Extending from the hall, wooden bridges take you to the Juice Bar, to Pakua Clinic, or to one of the many covered secluded tables surrounded by water. In one of those quiet spots you might read while enjoying afternoon tea, or dine in the evening with special friends.
Meeting new friends is a delightful part of the dining experience. There are six place settings at each table. Very likely, you may have a stimulating fun-filled dinnertime conversation with a highly international group of people from South Africa, Holland, Switzerland, Egypt and Kuwait. Because you are experiencing something special together at Tao Garden intensively over a week or two, these friends stay with you. You are connected at a heart level.
