Live with delight πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

β€œDivine Mother, teach me to live with delight. May I enjoy my earthly duties and the countless beauties of creation. Help me to train my senses to observe and appreciate Thy wondrous world of Nature. Let me savour with Thy zest all innocent pleasures. Save me from negation and unwarranted kill-joy attitudes.” β€” Paramahansa Yogananda

Am truly blessed that I have two traits of my Gurudeva, Paramahansa Yogananda β€” Love of Nature and travel 😊 Infinite gratitude for this blessing and grace of Divine Mother πŸ™πŸ™

Yesterday, 12th of June, was one such blessed day. Am pleased to share some pics and video clips β€” glorious sunrise and sunset!! How I love monsoon πŸ’–

All pics on my iPhone. Morning pics credit to my son. He gets up late usually but he hadn’t slept yesterday night – was busy watching Rafa – Djokovic semi final! An epic match!! But the dawn was more majestic!!

  1. Ashok, I am so glad to see more of you and your beautiful pictures from ‘Musings from a Wanderer’. You are one of the very first people to welcome me here when I first started my blog on You made me feel not only welcomed, you also made me feel inspired to not give up. I haven’t really drawn any recent pictures, but I have kept writing. Your posts are loud and outspoken and amazingly beautiful as always. Please keep posting more as you travel. I can’t wait to see more from you on your journey. Thank you for you kindness when I was in a moment of need.

  10. I can well imagine Rahul. Have heard of many who were inspired by AOY to come on the spiritual path.

  11. It is such a coincidence that this week we received an inspirational talk on Living Fearlessly from YSS of India. We have been getting one such talk every week and it is amazing how listening to or about a self realised soul can help us so much.

    Do read it Aanchal and also check out Home Study lessons of Paramahansa Yogananda at

    Have a great day ✨

  23. That is great Deb – I didn’t know it was kite season 😊

    Thank you so much!! Pune doesn’t have as much rain as Mumbai but sky and weather are great. Hope you get monsoon soon πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

  24. That’s a divine sunrise and sunset Ashokji. Skies of gold! And the timelapse video was just too good.
    Monsoon is a glorious season. The monsoon in Bangalore is yet to manifest itself properly this year, but I wait for such golden skies.
    In the meanwhile my neighborhood is vibrant with kite flying, and I am spending a lot of time watching those kites soar in the skies.

  25. Thank you so much Arv!! Isn’t nature so divine. That is good one – nature teaching us patience πŸ‘

  26. You couldn’t have found better love(s). Beautiful. I think people who love nature understand the concept of patience very well. Nature teaches us all. Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures.

  27. My princess’s poetry is as divine as the creation of our Creator πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

    Thank you so much princess πŸ’–πŸ€—

  28. Mesmerising layers of dawn
    Unfold and vanish
    In a spacious canvas of divine beauty
    CREATOR creates masterpieces in a blink of an eye
    HE creates and replaces
    And invites us to immerse in colours of divine
    And to fathom the ocean of contrast
    How different is down to night
    White and gray are not alike
    But together these differences make a beautiful picture in the sky
    CREATOR invites us to immerse in HIS wisdom divine❀
