I visited Sri Badrika Ashram in April, just after a week, the Navratri event was over. It is such a beautiful and quietude place. I stayed there for a week and really enjoyed every day. Meditated, read books, and explored every corner of the ashram, from the temple to the library :-). While the Sri Badrika ashram website clearly states that Swamiji will not be there during non-event days, I had not completely given up and still had some hope of meeting our beloved guru. But Swamiji wasn’t there 🙁

Although I love writing, but this article I wanted to express through pictures, taken at the ashram during my stay. It is said that ‘A picture says a thousand words’, so here is the picturesque article. Hope you enjoy it, as much as I enjoyed my stay at the ashram.

Wasn’t expecting the chess board but wasn’t surprised either. Knowing swamiji’s love for chess, from reading the book ‘the last gambit’

This looked like brahma kamal, with thousands of petals, but not too sure. Any guesses, which flower is this?

River giri ganga, which is 10 mins walk from the ashram. Just sitting at the banks of the river is so much  relaxing

One morning, while we were going to the river, he came running to give us company. He quietly followed to-and-fro the river and gave a wonderful company. Thanks buddy

Time to bid adieu to the ashram, the temple and shri hari. This was my last day at the ashram, but will be back soon
