What we're about

We are a volunteer community group who explore the ideas of compassionate living. The central theme of our discussion is that all animals are beings who deserve to be treated with respect, including humans.

We encourage you to demonstrate curiosity. Together we study ideas outside the cultural conditioning in which we were all raised.

We focus our outreach efforts on introducing an improved way of eating. Eating with love, peace, and compassion for all beings. Our goal is to peel back the layers of disconnect and bring acknowledgement to the inner peace we all seek.

We each have consumer power. Collectively, the dollars we spend impact the world we live in. We must tune in and turn on to recognize how our choices affect us and the planet.

Consumer choices are being made every day about food. You will make one soon.
Are you ready to be part of the solution?

Vegan Lunch Indian Buffet at Maharaja Indian Cuisine

Maharaja Indian Cuisine

Hi Veggies! My gf and I were eating at this restaurant recently, and we're pleasantly surprised when the staff said the whole buffet they cook fresh in the morning! I had a meetup here about a year ago and def have to make another one out of it. The owner is super kind and is going to have a huge vegan buffet for us! The vegetables are just so fresh, I think this is one of the best indian buffets I've ever been to! There will only be 2 or 3 non-vegan dishes to the side of our buffet for regular customers. If you are joining our meetup group, we ask you eat vegan with the rest of us. If you don't know how, our whole group is happy to show you :) If you can make it out, please RSVP so we know how many people are coming out! This will help the owner be prepared for our group because even one vegan buffet meetup we hosted got a 90 person turn out! If you RSVP, and later realize you can't make it, please change your RSVP to a "No". Thank you! Hope to see you out!
