Pure Love. Pure Peace. There is an immediate surge of love and peace within when I look at the pictures. I feel as if each image has the power to connect me with the still atmosphere of Shree Muktananda Ashram—what a joy!
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your love and your grace, conveyed to us in so many ways every day.
These are more than photos for me. As I go through each one, I am transported immediately to the serenity that exists throughout nature. Through memory, I am able to experience the feeling of renewal evoked by the sunrises over Lake Nityananda and the crisp morning air. I feel immensely blessed and grateful. My heart opens at the sight of each photo, and sings a song of gratitude.
Thank you, Gurumayi; thank you, Baba Muktananda; and thank you, Bhagavan Nityananda, for your divine grace!
Looking at the photographs, especially the ones posted today of the bird and the dandelion, gave rise to such deep stillness within me. As I continued to remain in this space, I began to feel strong, courageous, majestic, and above all, free. I began to float within my own being as love and gratitude slowly engulfed me.
Thank you, my beloved Gurumayi.
As I looked at these photographs, I thought about these lines in Gurumayi’s poem, A Temple Without Form:
“To immerse yourself in Bade Baba’s darshan
through the beauty of Nature is to meditate with the eyes open.”
I feel that in offering us this gallery, Gurumayi is gently showing us how to look—how to perceive Bade Baba in the form of nature all around us.
Looking at these gorgeous photos is certainly a beautiful way to meditate.
I am excited to go outside and observe nature here in my own neighborhood, immersed in Bade Baba’s darshan
Thank you, Gurumayi.
