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.
I have huge gratitude for this magnificent Siddha Yoga path website and all the wonders it reveals. I also have great appreciation for the exquisite images that show myriad aspects of nature at Shree Muktananda Ashram.
I often view these photographs as part of my morning quiet time, or while I pause for a cup of tea during the day. I love the spontaneous deep breaths that often accompany my viewings. I’m always amazed at how profoundly my state is affected as I look at these photos. They seem to draw me to the awareness of my own inner divinity and help me to feel a sense of oneness, belonging, and deep peace.
