We now have three photos of Swamiji taken at Green Acre under his pine. Sister Gargi poetically describes this photo: “One of these, which was among Isabelle McKindley’s treasures, shows him standing with folded arms, his eyes looking as eyes look when the whole world is seen as permeated by Divinity.” ❊ ❊ ❊ During one of the outdoor meetings, Swamiji in an inspired mood said: I am without form, without limit, beyond space, beyond time; I am in everything, I am the basis of the universe— everywhere am I. I am Existence Absolute. Bliss Absolute. Knowledge Absolute. I am It. I am It. (ND [1984] 2:149-50)
