Enchanting Vision is a video of Bhagavan Nityananda in his sacred abode, the Temple, in Shree Muktananda Ashram. The Sanskrit word darshana, and the Hindi word darshan, refer to beholding—having the vision of or being in the presence of—a holy being or anything hallowed and blessed.

Darshan involves reciprocity; inherent in this practice is a cyclical act of giving and receiving. A devotee offers their devotion and the deity, receiving that devotion, in turn grants the devotee blessings. During Siddha Yoga satsangs, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda has spoken about how the mountain-like steadiness of Bhagavan Nityananda in the Temple imparts to a seeker the knowledge and experience of being centered in themselves and in touch with the radiance and resilience of the heart.

Darshan can be an open-eyed meditation. As you watch this video, you may worship Bhagavan Nityananda by chanting his divine name. Nityananda means “everlasting bliss.” Allow this darshan to cleanse your mind and heart of sadness and hopelessness and the tumult they cause. Let this darshan clear the pathways within you that lead to the bliss of the Heart.
