Sweetness, Blissful Rice, Ananda :)

“Sat”-Means Ultimate Being

“Cit”- Means Pure Consciousness

“Ananda”- Means Bliss

This is a powerful chant I invite you to try. There are many beautiful variations such as one from Deval Premal. If you are in class at Yogasphere, I’m sure you have heard it at least once. Give it a try and open to expanded possibilities.

Sometimes we don’t know exactly what we want (vision of our ideals is ALWAYS beautifully evolving as we outgrow some past ideals and generally evolve). At those times, it’s often best to simply get clear on what you know you DON’T want! How ‘bout a quick check-in:

What allows me to feel blissful, alive and giddy? What does not?

Simple, do more that allows bliss! Smile!



Brown Rice Pudding

1 Cup of brown rice

1/2 Cups of clean water

1t of sea salt

1 can of organic coconut milk (or any milk variation you wish to try)

1/3 cup maple syrup

vanilla, cinnamon, cardamon to taste

optional 1-3 T coconut oil

First, add the rice, water, and salt to a pan. Bring it to a bowl over high heat. Cover with lid, reduce heat to low. Simmer rice for an additional 30 minutes, until liquid is absorbed. Next, turn heat to medium and stirring constantly, add all the coconut milk until it has been sufficiently absorbed. Be sure to uncover lid so that steam can cook off the rice. Fold in the vanilla, cinnamon, cardamon, coconut oil and maple syrup. Cover with lid and allow to sit for ten minutes. Serve warm or store in fridge to serve cold. Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon, pistachio, dried fruit and a drizzle of maple on top before serving. Delicious with room for variations. Smile, experiment and share. 🙂
