Serenity rules in Puttaparthi. It is a few years since we have visited last and we have found that since Sai Baba’s passing the ashram and the town of Puttaparthi have become very quiet and peaceful. There is still plenty … Continue reading
“Prestige or grandeur is not important at all; faith and devotion are of the utmost importance ” Sri Sakthi Narayani Amma
This pair of photos were taken quite by accident by me at the Satyananda Ashram. In the first photo the leaves are the focus. In the second we discover darling Ganesha…our remover of obstacles.
I have posted before about the wonderful Green Sakthi environmental programme that is occurring at the Sripuram Ashram I stay at each year in India. It is overseen by a gorgeous friend of mine Nathalie Latham.
This wonderful video shows Part 1 of the thoughtful “green” movement that is happening in India. For more information go to Green Sakthi.
This lovely song “Love Melts Fear” by my friend Edo Kahn showcases the beautiful Sripuram Ashram in India that I visit each year. Amma’s love has the power to melt all our fears.
“Sripuram has been created to communicate the universal Divine truths to mankind”…Sri Sakthi Amma
I know, I know…I’m at the Sripuram Ashram visiting lovely Amma…what more do I need? Well…it is hard to resist when you have a real cutie of a jewellery shop right outside the Ashram front gates.
Om Narayana Pearls is just that shop. It is located at No. 1/556-C (outside Main Gate entrance), Sripuram Golden Temple, Thirumalaikodi, Vellore-55, Tamil Nadu, India. This is a shop that definitely should not be missed. It has the most beautiful reasonably priced pearls that will tantalise and delight you. The pearls can be bought in a string or be made into whatever design you desire. I had a special Ganesha pendant attached to a string of pale pink pearls. Each time I have visited the Ashram I have bought lovely jewellery for family and friends.
So when next at the Sripuram Ashram check out Om Narayana Pearls ’cause pearls are a girls best friend…
Amazing curves of dots on an Aboriginal mural at the Satyananda Ashram, Mangrove Mountain in Australia…
I just adore this sign that I saw at the Prashanti Nilayam Ashram in Puttaparthi , India. The sign says SILENCE ~ let’s follow its example and add a little silence into our day…
Yesterday afternoon I went to pick up my mail and was very excited to see my Guru had arrived by post. Well not exactly…but nearly as good. My newest issue of the magazine, Sri Sakthi Gnanadeepam, was waiting in my box.
Each year when I stay at the Sripuram Ashram in India I renew my magazine subscription. Then each month I receive this delightful magazine packed with photos, quotes, news and discourses by Amma. It fills me with happiness each time one arrives. It is as if I have returned to the ashram without even leaving home.
These spiritual magazines are a great way to catch up on what is happening at the ashram while you are not there. They are a fantastic tool to refocus you on your spiritual path. Most importantly they remind me of my goal to be of service to others.
Another spiritual magazine I subscribe to is Yoga. This wonderful magazine is all about Satyananda and comes from the Bihar School of Yoga in Munger, India. It gives some lovely insights into living a more genuine yogic life.
