Normally I place the quantity of rice (brown rice, organically grown) in a colander and rise it with cold water before boiling it. The correct method at this point os to carefully sift through the rice, removing all the stray husks and pebbles that may have eluded the packaging process. This ensures that you don't accidentally bite into a rock while eating, which helps to keep your teeth from breaking.

Tenzo cooking practices link you to active samadhi in all your daily activities. It could be doing the dishes, changing a tire, or mowing the lawn, it doesn't matter.

I'm off to read the MCTB and might not post too much in the interim -
