Rice + Ayurvedic Diet: White Rice, Brown Rice, Types Of Rice, The Doshas
In Sanskrit there are myriad words for rice describing their many states of being, presentation, and consumption. One common word is अन्न, “anna,” which can translate to mean rice that is ready to eat. This word is also seen dancing through the Vedas relating to the external body, or that which pertains to food. Rice, then, is understood to be the basis of the external self. It is food, it is the body, it is a container for the deeper, more subtle variations of life.
