This should be pretty easy

You can find me at a grocery store,

Or a part of Chinese philosophy,

Either way, you wind up with the same pronunciation

What are the two words?

Hint:

In line one, the item is a dairy product

Could the answer be

cheese and qis?

This could work because

cheese is a dairy product and qi means life force for Chinese philosophy (qis is the plural form).

$\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ So close! Keep the qi and the answer is slightly different $\endgroup$

The answer could be

Harry

You can find me in a romance movie

When Harry Met Sally

Or believe in middle east philosophy

Hare Krishna

$\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I like this answer, but isn't one pronounced HAY-ree and the other HAW-ree? $\endgroup$

Is it:

Dharma?


Dharma & Greg Wiki

Although its technically a romantic comedy show, not a movie

Dharma Wiki

Various meanings in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism.

A first guess would be:

Profit and Prophet; since a romance movie can generate profits, and a prophet believes in philosophy.

I think I'll take another swing if this isn't it.

My guess is:

SEEK - as in the search for true love
SIKH - follower of Sikhism

New guess after edited question:

DOW - Dow Chemical produces packaging for many consumer packaged goods found in grocery stores
DAO or DAOISM (Tao or Taoism) - Chinese philosophy

Second one

Him and hymn

Could be

dao / dow

since

dao/ tao ("the path")

is a principle of Eastern philosophy, and

dow (packaging)

can be found in grocery stores.
