Wednesday lunches at the Abode will be a Langar Lunch – free and open to all.
Langar is the provision of free food…in a religious context. Its origin is from Sufism because serving of food to the needy has been a rich tradition among Sufis, especially of the Chishti Order…. Langar, the practice and institution, was first started by Baba Farid… of the Chishti Sufi order. The institution of the langar was already popular in the 12th and 13th century among Sufis of the Indian subcontinent. The practice grew and is documented in the Jawahir al-Faridi compiled in 1623 CE. It was later, both the institution and term, adopted by Sikhs. [x]
Wednesday lunches will be a service oriented gathering and community discussion and a chance for all to share what’s happening on about the campus and beyond.
Let’s kick this off on Wednesday October 30rd, with a discussion about winter, food and rehab projects!
So we have an accurate count, please RSVP to the Abode Front Desk by Tuesday at noon:
