The weather was stunning for the International Yoga Festival at Kawai Purapura last weekend, Raw Veda and Green Gorilla combined to offer a delicious range of Raw Foods, light and exceptionally tasty, all perfect to munch on between yoga sessions. We had a beautiful Great Gorilla for a backdrop, adapted from the cover of ‘The Eating Gorilla Comes In Peace‘, written by Avatar Adi Da Samraj in 1979, many years before the Raw Diet became trendy. And we gave away small bookmarks to connect people with this Wisdom Teaching about the Raw Diet.
“You can always trust an eating gorilla. Having found his food, he has put aside all effort and concern for survival….He is essentially benign, playful, even lovable. He is simply eating.”
Our food is offered with this in mind. Look out for us at the next festival at Kawai Purapura – Voices of Sacred Earth, March 11-13.
All profits made from the Raw Veda stall at the Voices of Sacred Earth Festival in Albany this weekend will be donated to the Cyclone Relief Fund to rebuild the Northern Fiji Island of Naitauba which was one of the first to receive a King Hit from Cyclone Winston.
Please visit the Raw Veda stall to feast on our delicious array of raw foods for breakfast, lunch and snacks in between.. And here is a link to the stories of the damage and rebuilding process following the cyclone: naitauba.org.
Green Gorilla UK has begun the year in with a bang at the recent Vegfest in Brighton, England on Feb 27/28. Vegfest advocates a strong vegan ethic and participants promote the protection of all non-human life, something that fitting in well with the raw vegan message promoted by Green Gorilla.
“Diet is a principal form of the human connection to the larger world, and it is simply true that the “green domain” of plants is the natural source of food for human beings. The social and political concern about global warming and climate change is connected to matters of diet. The industrialization of the raising of animals in order to kill them for food is a gross violation of the natural laws of responsibility that are incumbent upon human beings. Not only is the animal industry a dreadful abuse of non-humans, but it is also contaminating the atmosphere on the same scale as emissions from the burning of fossil fuels.”

Green Gorilla was undoubtedly the most attractive stall at the festival and many people enjoyed the delicious raw vegan treats on offer. Many contacts were made with vegans, vegetarians and animal rights organisations. We really looked forward to our ongoing relationship with the vegan community in the UK and are already preparing for similar events in coming months.
Hi and welcome to another year in the Green Domain. This blog kicks off a whole new enterprise for Green Gorilla as we bring the message of the Searchless Raw Diet to folks all over the world. Coming up on the West Coast of the United States will be a series of Festival events to which we will be travelling in our own BIG BUS!
- $30,000 to purchase a large vehicle to act as a mobile kitchen, living quarters and raw food venue.
- We will be coming to some of the largest Festivals in the U.S. this year, starting in April on the West Coast of California and Oregon
- We will be holding retreats, courses and seminars about living on the basis of a regenerative and sustainable relationship to food and to the world in general
- If we don’t receive enough funds for a REALLY BIG BUS, we will get the BIGGEST BUS we can get with the funds available.
