Pilgrimage to SRF Mother Center

(click on images to enlarge)

Along with other pilgrims, I enter the gates of Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) International Headquarters atop Mt. Washington in Los Angeles, California. It was established in 1925 by Paramahansa Yogananda. He lived and worked here for more than twenty years.

Cool paths leading to quiet meditation spots.
Temple of Leaves
A favorite meditation site is the "Temple of Leaves" where Sri Yogananda often gave classes. 
Guus & Loes
My friends Loes & Guus Scholten
from the Netherlands. 
Many beautiful gardens.
Many places to go deep into meditation.
The sounds of running water.
Walking and Stillness
Opportunities to walk briskly
or to "Be Still." 
Nature surrounds the soul.
Brahmacharini Mirabai 
singing bhajans to God
Bronze deer outside the main building.
Wishing Well
This building houses
the "Wishing Well."
SRF Nuns say good-bye
to the visitors. 
More reluctant farewells.

Forget the past, for it is gone from your domain!
Forget the future, for it is beyond your reach!
Control the present! Live supremely well now!
 It will whitewash the dark past,
and compel the future to be bright!
This is the way of the wise.
Paramahansa Yogananda,
God Talks With Arjuna: The Bhagavad Gita, p.197
