Deities And Lotus Flowers At Govinda's Gift Shop

I have been going to Govinda's restaurant next to the Hare Krishna Temple for over thirty years! Fifteen years ago I nursed my newborn daughter in the booths while my mom and I had lunch.  The vegetarian buffet is only $8 for all you can eat. I always make a salad with lettuce, beets, carrots, olives, sunflower seed and sunflower dressing and take a bowl of rice and dal.  Upstairs is a boutique filled with printed and sequin-sparkled silk tunics and gifts like the glass lotus above and the deities below.  I think they make lovely gifts.
