1 sheet puff pastry, cut into 4 pieces
3 to 4 ripe peaches or equivalent fruit of your choice
1 tbsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup sugar
4 pats butter
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Peel, then slice fruit into small pieces. Place in a mixing bowl. Add vanilla, cinnamon and sugar; mix well. Let it sit for a few minutes to allow juices to begin to flow out of fruit.
Take the puff pastry and roll it out to make it a bit larger — not too much, just stretch it so that it can hold more fruit. Spoon fruit onto the middle of the pastry, and place the pats of butter on top. Pull the four corners of the pastry together and press to close.

It is not that Rama is caught in delusion, but rather that Rama is deluded about his own delusion. His suffering is not the problem, it’s that he doesn’t see that his suffering is the source of wisdom and the actual path to enlightenment. Rather than treating his anguish as something to be expelled, the king infers, anguish is a recogni”
