Ananda Kanan - Garden of Bliss and Neohumanism College
Ananda Kanan is located in the Ozarks (the abode of the Wizard of Oz) near Willow Springs Missouri - It operates as a retreat and conference center with a capacity up to 300 people.

Thursday, August 18, 2011 Critical Mass at Ananda Kanan "Ananda Kanan as a sustainable community have to reach a critical mass of people living together and sharing to bount of the land."

This is the conclusion reached after a short field walk in company of Prof. Dhanjoo Ghista. It is admirable how Prof. Ghista is challenging not only himself but the whole society to become sustainable. He has choosen Ananda Kanan as the ideal place for a university setting and at the same time a model for sustainability.

To envision a university campus as a sustainable community is a task that requires some practical steps:

1. Ananda Kanan needs and calls for young people and families to reside and constitute a sustainable community. The requisite is to be able to share the same ideals and vision.

2. Ananda Kanan will constitute a cooperative called Ananda Kanan Productions, where residents can join and have a share in the economic development of Ananda Kanan. We can envision a first nucleus of 20 people joining the community to be able to work on the resources and generating revenues from the resources. These works include:

You can spread the cookie batter on a baking sheet, bake it, cool it, then break it into uneven pieces. Great for potlucks.

Loosing the path in the ocean of darkness,
don't forget the polestar of your life.
Don't forget the formless one who keeps on dancing,
encircling darkness from beyond the ocean of staticity.

Keep everfresh flowers on the altar of your mind.
Fill it with a sweet smile bathed in dewdrops,
and see His radiance float in the vast void.

In the ocean of boundless spirituality,
there is neither prayer, nor asking, nor attainment.
Just keep on watching His Majesty
and saturate your heart with His radiance.

 

Enjoyable News from the anandakanan.blogspot.com website:

 
 
Basil Pesto has been prepared at Ananda Kanan some times back and it was a huge success. We used to put Basil Pesto on everthing, from pizza to bread, soups and pasta. Those who had prepared the pesto in the big kitchen used to tell that they where feeling very high. This time it is thanks to Paula and his niece Morgan that we had pesto again at Ananda Kanan. Paula told that she had a good patch of basil planted in her garden and she loved to prepared pesto. At Ananda Kanan we had the rest of the ingredients: sunflower seeds, olive oil, parmesan cheese and lemon juice. So when Pula and Morgan set up the operation in the big kitchen everything worked very well. In the end we had 25 jars ready and we set them in the freezer for better preservation. We will sell them at the Farmer's Market although some of them may not make it as we like Basil Pesto too much. Better you come to visit us at Ananda Kanan and you will taste a pure healthy and tasty recipe good for everybody.
