My heart leaped with joy at the sight of the photos composed of drops of water. These photos evoke so much beauty, perfection, light, and softness for me! They touch me very deeply, in a place within that I am learning to know, to love, and to seek—a place of delight which I can’t name yet.
I love so much looking again and again at the pictures of Shree Muktananda Ashram in the Nature Galleries. It creates a sweet, soft, and vibrant sensation in my heart, and I feel so good!
I am grateful to be able to view these exquisite particles of this sacred land!
I am thankful for this pictorial winter wonderland tour of Shree Muktananda Ashram. As I looked at the photos, I imagined I was actually standing in the setting of each image, smiling. In this way, I felt that I was taking in the exquisite beauty of a sunset, breathing in the cold air, and feeling the snow as it floated to the earth. I was able to watch as the snowflakes landed in the dancing circles, on the path around Lake Nityananda, and on the rooftops. I felt as though I was right there as the snow gently enrobed the Shiva Nataraj statue. As I went through the photo gallery, my mind became still, my breath deepened, and I connected with my heart.

Gazing at the gorgeous picture of snowy trees by Lake Nityananda made my mind stop. I felt a unique sensation of peace. Everything in the image seemed to be in order—perfectly arranged by Mother Nature to be clean, beautiful, and spacious.
I am very thankful for these inspiring pictures. To me, they are like a work of art. They help me to perceive God in nature.

Upon embracing the views of the sacred land that is Shree Muktananda Ashram, my heart informed me to embrace wherever I stand as sacred, this moment as sacred, and this life as sacred. I am so grateful to have a Sadguru alive on this earth and alive in my heart.

When my eyes first caught sight of the red-orange flag flying high above
the Ashram near the Bhagavan Nityananda Temple, I felt my heart starting to glow with ecstasy.
Just as this flag signifies the Guru’s physical presence in the Ashram, so I could feel the Guru’s presence in my heart.

I am in awe as I gaze at the serene greatness of Bade Baba’s presence, his exquisite attire, his cape and shawl perfectly draped around him, his turban of gold, his big garland, and the gorgeous arrangements of roses surrounding him. He seems so alive, and everything around him seems so alive. I see the freezing landscape outside and the warmth inside the Temple. The golden curtain behind Bade Baba looks to me like a shower of pure shakti

The two photos of the Bhagavan Nityananda Temple at night, with the dark clouds and swirling winds outside, remind me that no matter what the outer circumstances are, my inner Self is so full of light, love, and protection. It’s such a sweet image to hold in my heart.
