Photos from the Wisdom Heart Garden (Spring!!!)
These photos were taken last week in the garden at Wisdom Heart home & headquarters. Following the wonderful winter rains which nourished our parched earth, all the plants are joyously opening into the sunshine of Spring.
Planted among the greenery, at WH, are many sacred statues.
These are called murtis in the Sanskrit language. A murti is an image or, more precisely, a form of the Divine. Of course, everything that you are aware of – inside and outside – is a form; an expression of the Divine. All that arises are emanations of the Radiance.
As you cultivate meditative awareness, you discern the Radiance in the form.
You see, smell, hear, taste and touch. Your senses receive the emanations and – at the very same time – you recognize and receive the Radiance that is the essence of the form.
Sacred statuary is one way of supporting this recognition.
These embodiments are reminders; pointers that invite you to open to That which is seeking to blossom and awaken as your life.
Here’s the Buddha that stands by the front door and gazes over the vegetable beds:
This Quan Yin stands at the edge of a shady path leading to the back garden:
This is the Goddess luxuriating in the early Spring blooms:
Here’s the Big Guy at the center of the garden:
And this is Bindu on the path of awakening:
