(p.157) Chapter Six In the Kitchen
Himalayan Hermitess

Schaeffer Kurtis R.

Oxford University Press

This chapter relates how Orgyan Chokyi worked in the kitchen at Dolpo and went through a period of further mental anguish. There were many religious activities in Dolpo: the building of the temple at Dechen Palri, the construction of the temple at Sandul, the making of paintings of deities at Drikung, and the writing of the twelve volumes of scriptures such as the Lotus Sutra at Kok. There were artisans creating many religious supports for the enlightened body, speech, and mind of the Buddha here, as well as many people requesting teachings. In this bustle Orgyan Chokyi's body and mind suffered. However, her mind suffered of its own accord. Beyond that, in her work, with no leisure day or night, she was saddled with the toil of preparing food and drink.
