Images of Nature I

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.

The sunlight sparkling on the snow-covered tree branches, and bouncing off the rushing waters, reminds me that even when my sadhana may seem to have gone into “pause mode” for a while, or into a wintry stillness, the light of God is always present in my life in many more places than I will ever know.

As I take in these captivating scenes of winter in Shree Muktananda Ashram, I recall the wonder of my first winter visit to the Ashram. The snow, ice, and decreasing temperatures could not eclipse the peace, tranquility, and beauty of this sacred abode. If anything, the cold enhanced my experience and seemed to entice my mind to turn inward. How grateful I am to have spent time in this uplifting sanctuary.
