Babaji's Indian Himalayan Valley of Flowers





Mahavatar Babaji and Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama (Swamini Lakshmi) worked on the following poem, together, yesterday, as often occurs in Swamini’s time spent with Mahavatar. Babaji then requested she place this poem on Facebook, an avenue of sharing Mahavatar often uses to "spread his message of love" in his transmissions to Swamini. A devotee of Sri Swami Vishwananda and a friend of Swamini from Mumbai, India, Laksman, requested that we place this poem on Virtual-Babaji-Vishwananda. Mahavatar added herein a picture of the Valley of Flowers plus a YouTube video. Enjoy !

Have you heard the call to pilgrimage to
Mahavatar Babaji’s Valley of the Flowers 
In the Himalayas of India?
When one walks through that sacred place,
The beauty of the colorful flowers,
The fragrance they emanate and the
Majestic Himalayas towering high into the sky
May literally bring one to the knees in
Humble admiration and holy reverence
Some disciples of Mahavatar Babaji
Have walked through this valley with Babaji.
It’s like heaven on Earth when with Him.
Pilgrimages are stepping stones to the
Inner Self and to God Realization.
In themselves, like walking through the
Valley of Flowers, they can do nothing.

For God Realization one must recognize
That the flowers are God, everything is God
But the human self must find God within the
The soul, the Atma within the Sacred Heart.

Sri Swami Vishwananda teaches us that
Love is the essence of everything.
Where may one find this love?
This love is God within the Soul.

The greatest pilgrimage of all is to
Travel the few inches from mind to heart
Within the human encasement
Of bodily incarnation.
People run all over this world in pilgrimage,
And it is a wondrous experience, especially
When one is with one’s Master such as
Sri Swami Vishwananda and Mahavatar Babaji.

Christ said it simply and beautifully:
“The Kingdom of God is within.”
The human body ensconces a holy and
Magnificent secret to many,
For the human form IS
"The Temple of God.”

And yet . . .
The greatest pilgrimage you will ever take
In physical form is that Short,
But seemingly long,long distance
From mind to Sacred Heart and the
Indwelling Presence of God as Love, therein.
- Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama

Valley of Flowers National Park is an Indian national park, located in West Himalaya, in the state of Uttarakhand and is known for its meadows of endemic alpine flowers and the variety of flora. This richly diverse area is also home to rare and endangered animals, including the Asiatic black bear,[1] snow leopard,[1] musk deer,[1] brown bear, red fox,[1] and blue sheep. Birds found in the park include Himalayan monal pheasant and other high altitude birds.[2] At 3352 to 3658 meters above sea level, the gentle landscape of the Valley of Flowers National Park complements the rugged mountain wilderness of Nanda Devi National Park to the east.[3] Together, they encompass a unique transition zone between the mountain ranges of the Zanskar and Great Himalaya. The park stretches over an expanse of 87.50 km2 and it is about 8 km long and 2 km wide.[2] Both parks are encompassed in theNanda Devi Biosphere Reserve (223,674 ha) which is further surrounded by a buffer zone (5,148.57 km2).[4] This Reserve is in the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves since 2004.
