~ Karma Kitchen, USA : A unique Restaurant where you pay $0 (Zero) bill

One of its kind restaurant  where you get $ 0 bill with a note:  “Your meal was a gift from someone who came before you. To keep the chain of gifts alive, we invite you to pay it forward for those dine after you”. So, technically your bill is already paid by some unknown visitor before and you have to pay for future unknown guest, just out of Generosity!! Also, there is no Price on Menu card, you can order what you want and you get “$0” (zero) dollar bill. Then you can pay what you feel is right value (in terms of money) for your food!  Another interesting thing is that food is prepared and served by volunteers who gives service for FREE (without any salary)! So, imagine unique scene where waiter/staff do not get salary and customer gets zero dollar bill  😀

Viral and Pavi Mehta, American-Indian couple, initiated this idea at Taste of Himalayas Restaurant,  Berkley , California. This Karma concept meal is served on Sunday. As their  website  says ‘it’s a volunteer-driven experiment in generosity’. Initiative is to spread Generosity and Togetherness among people!

What!!! But, how it works? See these clips below:

~ Laws of Karma (Good Deeds/Action): How it works!

This is a beautiful video where a little girl helps a woman unconditionally and cycle of Karma / Good deeds starts rolling…. Her small help to woman triggers many incidences which end up getting that little girl her dues but in different form!

There are many ways to interpret this video; some may call it power of smile, help, love, etc. But actually this is how Laws of Karma works! Karma principle from Bhagavad Gita is one of the basic pillars of Hinduism way of life.  Hinduism believes one’s present is a result of his/her past Karma and one can create good future by doing positive Karma/Things/Deeds/Actions.

One should always focus on doing good deeds/things/ Karma without thinking about any selfish gains/outcomes. You will automatically get your dues in future which may not be exactly what you want (person always has greed about money, power, fame, etc materialistic things) but may be in different forms you never expected.

Only if one has that instinct or sense he/she would be able to understand this whole cycle of Karma! Same thing applies to bad karma or bad things one spreads around. They also say….…as you sow, so shall you reap!!

This nice video shows, if we all start doing good Karma and spread unconditional love, we would make world a happy and better place to live!
