Nature in Shree Muktananda Ashram 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.

Throughout my life, nature observation has taught me countless lessons.  The photos here of the magnificent, sunlight-reflecting green buds sprouting and flourishing on the Ashram trees inspired me. The silence I could sense around them drew me into a deep inner state of sweet silence.
 
Then the realization dawned on me that no matter what is happening in the rest of the world, nature continues to express herself through all her natural cycles. This made my heart swell with great hope, courage, and enthusiasm to follow nature's example of persistence and resilience.
