AUM in Nature III

In the ancient Vedic scriptures, the primordial sound AUM (ॐ) is described as the origin of the universe and the inner essence of mantra. The photographs in the AUM Nature Gallery feature various expressions of this sacred symbol seen on the vibrant grounds of Shree Muktananda Ashram.

Reflecting on the beauty of these images can inspire us to look for hints of AUM in the natural world that surrounds us—and can support us in perceiving divinity around and within us.

This practice of looking for AUM in nature reminds me that I am with God and God is with me everywhere and all the time. It supports me whether I am in a joyful or a more difficult moment.

I love this delightful challenge to find the AUM in the clouds and in beautiful fall-colored trees at Shree Muktananda Ashram. The experience of gazing upon this beauty immediately takes me into the delightful ocean of bliss that resides within…so accessible.
What a profound gift!

These images remind me of how to see the world, to have the understanding that God is everywhere, that AUM is everywhere. They inspire me to look for God and AUM in everything.

Each of these pictures brings me so much love and joy. Looking at each one, I felt I was with Shri Gurumayi, as if we were walking together, immersed in the love God has poured into this creation.

I love to search for the AUM symbol in these nature photos. It is always present and yet can be quite challenging for me to spot at times. The experience reminds me of the Guru's love and presence in my life; no matter how subtle, I know they are ever present within me.
