Your Inner Shrine


by Nomi Bachar



Your Inner Shrine


On the 4th of July 2014, Ananda Ashram and Yoga Center dedicated the new shrine to the beloved Guru Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati. As I was sitting there in this beautiful space I was at moments moved to tears by the words and feelings shared. I realized that in the Guru's presence, as well as in our own inner Guru, we find the inner shrine; a place of total peace, acceptance of ourselves and others, love and kindness and an open heart to oneness. The inner shrine is the place we want to take ourselves to every time we meditate or any moment that we can. It reminds us of our true nature which is love and bliss, of which we are in great need of as many reminders as possible.


Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati created a beautifully accepting grounds; a place where east meets west, arts meet meditation and different spiritual traditions live side by side honoring each other and exchanging wisdom. There is a true sense of unity and respect.  For the past 15 years, I have lead two of the most important Jewish holidays, Rosh Hashanah and Passover at Ananda Ashram. What other ashram in the world opens its gates with such deep respect to other spiritual traditions? It is that inner shrine of love and acceptance for all expressions of life that we can create within our hearts and let its' loving warmth permeate our moments.
