This is the Sacred Forest down the street from my house. It was created by the Hindu monks that own a large amount of acreage of ancient land where it is said the the ancient civilization of Lemuria once existed. They have built the largest Hindu temple over where the lemurian temple once was, as well as a gigantic organic farm/ orchard.
This sacred forest is full of Rudraksha trees which produce the Rudraksha beads that are held sacred in Hinduism like a rosary and are used for japa (repetitive prayer). The berries / beads are also used for the treatment of various diseases in Aryuvedic medicine. There is a shrine of Ganesha at the entrance of the forest always adorned with flowers and gifts from visitors...this sacred forest represents the sacred forest that exists on each of us...it can be visited regularly-full of healing, peace, and connection with source through prayer or meditation...or it can just be visited on occasion as tourist, walked through briefly with no real embrace but maybe a few quick pictures to remember it by. It has a shrine that can be honored an adorned, or can be consciously overlooked...how will you experience your sacred forest?
