Awake with Unconditional Love

A friend of mine invited me to the movies this past Saturday. We went to see Awake: The Life of Yogananda. In the background of my life as a young adult, many years ago, I remember hearing about him.

The movie was interesting in that here was a man who was born in India in the late 18th century, who was called to come to the United States, and had a large following here in the early 19th century. His message? Unconditional love.

His book, Autobiography of a Yogi, had a huge influence on my friend back in the 60s. This was the book that inspired Steve Jobs throughout his life. I have not read it yet, but it will be joining my spiritual book collection soon.

Unconditional Love is my message too. With unconditional love for all of our fellow human beings we can heal the world. The next time you come across someone you are having a hard time with, send them a burst of love and see what happens—I call it a Love Bomb. My guess it would be a miracle.

This is what I had for dinner last night. I love Indian food, so it was only fitting after watching awake to eat Indian. Click on the pictures for the recipes. Below is my take on it, and it was awesomely delicious. I served it with cauliflower rice.

Recipe Notes

I prefer to use bone on chicken thighs, especially in a slow cooker, because they will stay nice and moist.

Garam Masala
Tandoori Masala. She too has a butter chicken recipe on her site.

I found a very simple curry paste in this cookbook. How to Make Good CurriesIt called for anchovy paste, which I did not have, but used extra salt instead.
