“A Higher Taste” engages a student and then a professor
Here in Los Angeles, we have a college professor who comes to our temple on Sundays with her family. Her name is Jennifer.
She was first given Srila Prabhupada’s books by devotees at Santa Monica College several years ago. Jennifer got a copy of “A Higher Taste”, and upon reading it, she was convinced of vegetarianism and offering her food to Krishna.
She also suspected that it was not the first time she had been exposed to it. She remembered that during her first intern year of teaching, at Pepperdine University, she had accepted a paper from a student that discussed “the spirituality of eating,” and it had contained pretty much the same information that’s in “Higher Taste.” That student had gotten an A and full credit for the paper from Jennifer. So, later, putting two and two together, she realized that the student had plagiarized the “Higher Taste.”
But this gave Jennifer the opportunity to consider its teachings and started her along the path toward becoming a devotee.
