    Ex-Pat Mama's Note:

    This vegan recipe is a culinary metaphor for Mooladhara Chakra. The four root vegetables (potato, sweet potato, carrot, ginger) symbolize both the number of petals (4) and the literal translation of the name of the chakra - place of the root. The beautiful yellow color of the soup is a nod to the tattwa yantra - a yellow square. The paprika sprinkled on top of the soup represents the color of the petals: deep red. The delicate gingery aroma represents the tanmatra - smell, and the gyanendriya - nose.
