Sriram Janak – Photography

Breathe in…



Breathe in with the deep awareness that you are a 

human being.

Then breathe out and touch the earth,

a non-man element, as your mother.

Visualize the streams of water beneath the Earth’s











See the minerals .See our Mother Earth, the Mother of

us all.

Then bring your arms up and breathe in again, touching the

trees, flowers, fruits, birds, squirrels, air and sky– the







When your head is touching the air, the sun, the moon,

the galaxies, the cosmos–non-man elements that have

come together in order to make man possible–you see

that all of the elements are coming into you to make your

being possible.







Breathing in again, stretch your arms and be aware that you also penetrate other 









Man helps make the other elements possible.

  6. The visuals created with both words and photos is inspirational. Reminds me so much of how the Nez Perce view the Earth and themselves ~ as one, full of mutual respect. A harmonious balance.
