 The branch, with its buds ready for spring, held my gaze for a while this morning. Even as a winter with record-breaking snowfall and below-zero temperatures continues here, spring is coming. I felt as if the branch was reminding me that my sadhana, too, seems to go in cycles. Sometimes it seems to be dormant or quieter, but still so much is happening deep inside, ready to unfold at the right time and flower once again.

What beautiful photos! Every one reminds me of Gurumayi's teachings, through the shapes, the colors, the subjects, the actions. They provide infinite possibilities for studying the teachings in a new, ever-fresh, inspiring way.
 
Thank you, Gurumayi, for always being such a wonderful teacher! Thank you to all the sevites who had the attentiveness and patience to take these photos.

Every time I look at the nature photo galleries, I think that the photographers are becoming more and more skilled, more and more immersed in the depth of what they are doing. Looking at these magical images, I feel touched and guided very deep within, to secret memories of the soul. It is a very beautiful path of experience which we are walking together.

Thank you, Gurumayi, from all my heart. And thank you to the photographer sevites.

Winter has been the season I always wanted to escape from. I would project myself into some other place and time. But this Nature Gallery has made me feel so present with the elements this winter— the air in the form of the stormy wind sweeping over the city of Geneva, the icy water in the waves of Lake Leman, and the swans so elegantly floating through this time.

The divine presence is visible in everything. I experience humility, devotion, innocence, astonishment, and gratitude. I feel these images silently vibrating deep in my heart.

At the moment, I am offering seva in support of the Pilgrimage to the Heart Retreat in Gurudev Siddha Peeth. Yesterday morning, after reciting Shri Guru Gita, I went to Dakshin Kashi to practice Surya Namaskar. The sky was delicately pink in the east, while the moon was still luminously quiet in the west. Slowly, a gorgeous red sun rose above the clouds, giving them a warm pink color. Watching the sun and the full moon facing each other above Dakshin Kashi, I experienced the luminous Self and the sweet light of the Guru united in my being. I felt so blessed, with deep gratitude to the lineage of Siddha Yoga Gurus.

In my country, it is said that February is short and bitter, but I have come to love this month so much as the time we celebrate Mahashivaratri. It has become for me a sweet, long time, vibrating with the sound of mantra.

What a beautiful Mahashivaratri Nature Gallery! Thank you.
