"God's presence is so close; it is just as though somebody is playing hide-and-seek with you in a dark room. Though you do not see the person, you feel that he is there. That is how God is, just behind the darkness of your unseeing eyes. He is talking to us through the wise man. And He is inspiring us through the great ones, such as Christ, Krishna, and the Masters. He is, but where is He? That is what devotion answers: You do not have to see Him in order to become devoted to Him. Devotion means that you know He is omnipresent around you in the dark conundrum of cosmos, playing a divine game of hide-and-seek with you. Behind the leaves, behind the wind, behind the warm rays of the sun—He is hiding, but He is there. He is not far away; that is why it becomes easy to love Him." — Yogananda
This immense portrait of Yogananda is 100x120cm and shows Devotion in the deepest sense: Devotion to the Self. Surrounded by Divine Guidance, guiding us to the Path Within. This is what Self Realisation is, for only in the Temple of your Self you will find what you have been longing for.
