Sriram Janak – Photography



On a cloudy day, the clouds hide the sun,

but the sun is always there in

the sky…

Like the sun, happiness is often hidden by

the clouds of thoughts & worries…





You have to scatter &dissolve the clouds to

experience it…






All you have to do is calm down your mind &

feelings, because when there is a quiet mind

& inner peace, happiness emerges 

from within you…






You don’t have to create happiness, because though

you may not believe it, it is a part of your

essence , but is just hidden…






happiness is there within you.

just calm your mind & stay relaxed...







…what you need to do is strive not to allow

your feelings get upset by

your memories...






Inner peace & happiness are inter connected.

you want more happiness ?

Learn to calm your mind make 

it less restless…






It is an inseparable part of your consciousness,

of your essence, & comes out

where your mind

  is free from disturbing &

constant thinking…







...when the mind gets quiet you experience the

happiness in you…







...the treasure is there , whether you see it

or not. so is happiness.







…it is always here , only hidden by

constant thinking

& worries…






Do not let worries

  5. What a magnificent series of nature images and a great theme,dear Sriram!Contentedness is innate and should be our moral obligation,but as your wise words and your brilliant quotes say,we let trivial worries make it temperate and affect our peace of mind.So beautiful and convincing your post and your masterful photography!

    The lighting of your images says deeply of the inner happiness, also hopefulness. So very often, we let worries hide our happiness. Thank you for the lesson, Dear Sriram. So much wisdom in this post.
