Anda #1 - January 14, 2023
Andas are where I share associative blobs of links to what I’ve been exploring, seeing, listening to, and reading. "Anda" means egg in Sanskrit. It's a zone of fertility and creativity.
Was dazzled by Roshan Kumari, renowned Kathak dancer (Jaipur Gharānā) in Satyajit Ray's movie Jalsaghar. The besotted, all-male audience was creepy.
Looked up a bunch of words in my online Sanskrit dictionary of choice.
Started re-reading the Avadhuta Gita.
Read a bunch of stuff about Prince Harry’s new book. 🙄
Rented, but have not yet watched Tukdam: Between Worlds.
Tried out this rice and mung dal dessert recipe for South Indian Sweet Pongal. Yum!!
Whipped up some homemade almond butter with roasted, unpasturized California almonds purchased direct from this farmer. Also made almond milk. Realized yet again that most store-bought nuts are moldy.
Received this mind-opening, aloeswood incense as a gift from a student. What a treat!
Learned to play a beautiful kirtan — Daya Karō Mātā.
