Brindavan canteens
Two canteens are available. The food is plentiful and inexpensive, usually costing between 10 and 40 rupees --less than 1 US dollar. Of course, only vegetarian food (no eggs, also) is served.
There are also two "snack joints", where tea, coffee, etc. can be obtained.
Food offered to God is free from the evil vibrations that injure the individual in subtle ways. Since food has subtle impact on the feelings and thoughts, you have to be ever vigilant.
