For Mind, Body, and Spirit


Breathtaking imagery from top nature photographers is matched with inspirational quotations by Paramahansa Yogananda in this Inner Reflections engagement calendar from local bookstores. "Nothing is impossible, unless you think it is..."


Honour the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells,
Honour the place in you which is of Love, of Truth, of Light and of Peace,
When you are in that place in you,
and I am in that place in me, we are One.

OM is the sacred sound of Hinduism. It is the source of reality; the seed sound out of which the entire universe is born, in which it is sustained, and into which it is finally dissolved.
YIN YANG describes two opposing but complimentary forces found in all things in the universe. Yin, the darker element, is often symbolized by water. Yang, the brighter element, by fire.
