Nature Gallery III

On the Siddha Yoga path, we acknowledge the presence of the Divine in all of creation—and this divinity is revealed in myriad forms in the natural world. The beauty and wonder we find in nature can inspire us, as seekers, to recognize the beauty within us and everywhere around us.

The Nature Gallery contains photographs taken in the wondrous environs of Shree Muktananda Ashram, where Gurumayi currently resides. The Ashram is located in upstate New York, surrounded by expansive forests and rolling hills, brimming with wildlife. Take your time as you view the gallery. Allow the images to transport you to the serene stillness of the Guru’s abode, and let nature’s splendor connect you to the splendor of your own great heart.

In this month’s Nature Gallery, what caught my eye was the delightful variety of geometrical patterns in the images: branches framing the moon in an elegant triangle, parallel lines of tree trunks keeping each other company in stark dignity, snow peacefully nestling in the curved hollows of layered rock, and mini-icicles hanging from a branch, almost like teeth on nature’s comb. It’s wonderful to be offered such a rich display of nature’s artwork to enjoy, especially in this chilly season whose special beauty can too easily be overlooked.
