The photographs wash my mind in the stillness of the Ashram and bring about a state of quiet absorption. I feel composed in the darshan
of the sacred environment of the Ashram.

My heart soars and sings and I beam as I view nature's beauty captured in these magnificent photos from Shree Muktananda Ashram. Thank you to all who share with us God's artistic and wondrous expressions!
Whenever Gurumayi speaks to us, I always delight in the details of nature that she directs our attention toward: the rustle of a tree leaf, a pebble on a path, the sound of silence. How tremendous to receive these details in the form of images that our eyes can feast on!
My heart overflows.
Bravo to all the photographers who have captured the vibration of love in all of nature at Shree Muktananda Ashram! I am having a wonderful inner dialogue with that sweet, angelic baby fox. I cannot get over those eyes and face. That little fox brings me into my heart over and over again.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for sharing the bountiful nature of the Ashram with everyone around the world! Thank you to all the photographers and website sevites for your ongoing seva. It's simply wonderful!

What a blessing to have the darshan of the Siddha Gurus—Bade Baba, Baba, and beloved Gurumayi—through these beautiful images so conducive to contemplation! A really inspiring morning walk through nature.
These exquisite images are bursting with new life and vibrant beginnings—regenerating, rejuvenating, and refreshing.
When I gaze upon each image, it is apparent to me that this is a metaphor for my life right now. Looking at these images gives me clarity and a firm conviction that everything happens in the right time and at the right place. God has a plan for us, and it is unfolding perfectly.
Thank you so much for this very beautiful visual reminder.
Watching the spring slide show transports me into a divinely subtle state of meditation. I feel God looking at me through the eyes of the little fox. An uncanny experience that defies all logical explanation!
Happy Birthday, Baba. Thank you for being born to lead us to freedom from the cycle of birth and death.
When I looked at the Spring Gallery photos, I was really feeling love and respect for nature. I experienced the beauty of nature in my heart itself, so it was a real view for me.
Thank you for posting the Spring Photo Gallery. It was great to see it.
Looking through the beautiful spring photos, I came upon Shiva's foot with sparkling droplets of water. In that moment, my heart felt a droplet of light enter it, and I felt that light rippling out within me as a droplet of water ripples when it enters a large body of water.
I am deeply touched by the themes of nature displayed on the Siddha Yoga path website, this time by the opening leaf buds of early spring, finally sharing a message of renewal after a long and hard winter, and also by the steady universal sounds of water. These inspire me to explore within for my own renewal and deep steady sounds.
Thank you, Gurumayi!
Each time I view the wonderful photos of nature in Shree Muktananda Ashram, I feel as if I have become immersed in meditation.
Today, as I looked at all the different flowering spring buds, I thought about how many people around the world have experienced their own hearts blooming, with the grace of the Chanting Tour!

The photographs of the flower buds that have not yet opened are so vivid and captivating. I love to pause whenever I see these on walks. They remind me that—even during the moments when my heart does not seem entirely open—it is really pulsating subtly with love.
When I viewed the beautiful sparkling water droplets, I thought of Baba and how he radiated his light and love to the whole world!
Thank you to the photographer for evoking Baba through these images of nature!

These photos of springtime in Shree Muktananda Ashram speak volumes to my heart. Each morning, as I look at the photos, I am given the sweet opportunity to bow my head to Bade Baba, to Lord Ganesh, and to the Shiva Nataraj statue as if I were walking around these sacred grounds. For me, each photo is another picture of our beloved Gurumayi in the form of spring flowers, birds, the daytime moon, and the dear, familiar buildings. My heart soars with love. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you for this beautiful reminder of the power nature has to bring stillness to the mind and peace to the heart.

My favorite time to visit Shree Muktananda Ashram via the Siddha Yoga path website is in the morning. I am so grateful for this morning access. It is a real blessing in my life, a real presence. I experience so much joy in that unique ambiance; the feeling of love is so pure.
Viewing these photos reminds me of when I take a walk in nature, especially by myself. I experience a silence as if my spirit is one with the nature I see around me.
Thank you so much for the beautiful photos. I live in central London and I feel that I am in nature whenever I see these pictures. They make me feel very tranquil.

I am so thankful for these beautiful spring images. I find that each photo opens a doorway into profound stillness and quiet that keeps deepening with each succeeding image. By the time I click through the entire gallery, my mind is totally quiet and my heart feels open and happy. Truly an experience of flawless quietude—thank you!
