By Parasuram das

Ireland was known as the “Slaughterhouse of Europe”, due to its meat industry. Is it coincidental that for decades we have lived with war? In the words of George Bernard Shaw:

“We pray on Sundays that we may have light to guide our footsteps on the path we tread. We are sick of war, we don’t want to fight, And yet we gorge ourselves upon the dead”.

So here came an opportunity to attempt to enlighten some poor souls through the distribution of Prasad and the Holy Names. So we filled Tribhuvanath prabhu’s van with devotees and cooking equipment and traveled from London to the Emerald Isle. All the vegetables were donated due to them being “ugly veg”, wrong shape, size or colour. The army came to help with the veg chopping and donated the use of their fridge van - to be honest it was minus 1 outside and 2 degrees warmer in the van, still health and safety rules must be followed.

So we cooked subji, dal with veg, papadum and pickle for 6,000 people, just to make sure we hit the 5,000 target. The Mayor of Dublin came to give a hand, and as always the t.v. and newspapers came out for the action.

Feeding the 5,000 is not a new concept. Back 2,000 years ago Jesus Christ had done it, which reminds me how one person upon seeing our Kirtan party remarked “Oh I am not into foreign religions!” I told him “Was Jesus Irish? Do you know why Jesus didn’t take birth in Ireland? Because he could not find 3 wise men!!!”

We managed to go out on four Hari Namas and as usual we ended up on the “Anti Austerity” demonstration.
