Natural Awakenings Tucson

Vegetarian Fare Curbside from Govinda’s Natural Foods Buffet

While many are looking to support local food businesses when ordering takeout, Govinda’s Natural Foods Buffet is open for curbside vegetarian fare seven days a week. Takeout service is available from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., with a natural foods luncheon for $7.95. The menu is posted on the website,
Resiliency, courage, dedication and devotion are trustworthy qualities of steadfast leadership. Under the guidance of Sandamini Devi and her husband, Dhiro Datta Prabhu, Govinda’s Natural Foods Buffet has withstood a devastating fire and now, in this confined time, also continues to serve the greater Tucson community with takeout curbside service.
In service to the Hare Krishna philosophy, put forth by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada, the restaurant prevails. Now more than ever, it is essential for people to realize the importance of vegetarian cuisine. The menu is prepared with a mindful mood and conservation in the heart. The cooks at Govinda’s are longtime devotees of Lord Krishna. Tulasi and Manohar, Govinda’s cooks, have quietly stood behind the kitchen doors for over 18 years preparing a plant-based diet. One of the hallmarks of Govinda’s resiliency is its steadfast devotion to the high ideals that keep the devotee community healthy and active.
The Hare Krishna movement is based on chanting the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra. It is also well known that the mantra is a sacred sound capable of producing spiritual transformation. The devotees understand that by upholding certain regulative principles, they will eventually go back to Godhead. That is a standard of the Hare Krishna Movement. Vegetarian cuisine is also holy and will take us back to healthy. The residents of Tucson’s Hare Krishna Temple are remarkable in their determination, and these devotees who live within the temple community keep the restaurant cooking.
