Images of Nature II

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.

When I long for a touch of exquisiteness, I visit the Images of Nature gallery. This time, after reading the instructions, I decided to focus on “Take your time as you view the gallery.” I decided to allow myself time to fully imbibe each image and see what happened.

One by one, I absorbed the photos. Each one evoked gentle feelings within me. I became immersed in sensations like tenderness, expansiveness, and stillness. An overall feeling of deep, sweet joy seeped into my being.

I gratefully relish this experience in timelessness, focus, and stillness, which leads me to exquisite inner joy.
