Nature has manifested God’s infinite creative power since the beginning of time. Just as leaves are an integral part of the tree, so too are humans an integral part of nature. As Gurumayi Chidvilasananda reminds us again and again, contemplating nature’s many forms returns us to our own divine Self. When we pay attention to nature, when we respect and revere nature, we open ourselves to its blessings and teachings. We can witness our own qualities in its scenes: the joy in a vibrant rainbow, the wisdom in an ancient boulder, the strength in a tree’s stance. The miracle of nature is as close as our own heartbeat! Whether we experience nature in a forest, in a rainstorm, or in our mind’s eye, its timeless truths penetrate our being. In this calendar we offer you images of nature from Gurudev Siddha Peeth and Shree Muktananda Ashram, which evoke the truth and wisdom inherent within us. May each scene invite you to uncover and relish the joy of your own divine inner nature.
