  • Shockingly Delicious Vegan Sloppy Joes

    We know, it sounds crazy.  Delicious and vegan don't generally go in the same sentence (or same paragraph, or same conversation, for that matter).  But at a vegan potluck recently, the Drishti team discovered that, contrary to popular belief, veganism can be tasty too.  We love the idea of eating ethically, but flavor helps too.

  • Mantra Monday

    Mantras can be a beautiful tool to center your mind, especially in our fast-moving modern culture.  The ancient tool of bringing awareness to your body and breath is one of the foundational principles of yoga.  One of the ways to achieve this awareness is through the repetition of specific meaningful sounds.  A mantra is a collection of sacred syllables that allow the practitioner to attain a deep level of meditation.  We like to begin every week with a reminder of the divine and of our intrinsic connection to it through the use of these ancient mental instruments.

    "May all beings everywhere be happy and free from suffering"

    This invocation reminds us that the greatest path to contentment is through facilitating the happiness of others.  Because we are all inherently connected,  there can be no true distinction between my freedom and your freedom, our happiness and theirs.  There is only the ubiquitous collective being, and although it is impossible to know every human on the planet, we are all affected in some minuscule way by every action, every smile, every offering of kindness.  Our intention to spread light and love at the beginning of the week will surely rebound before the week's end.

     

    To ensure a wonderful week for yourself, begin with this mantra and focus on ensuring a wonderful week for those around you.
