I love altars. They are a beautiful, physical representation of devotion. They give us a place to kneel before, quiet our minds, and feel grateful. They let us worship before whatever we want. Enjoy these altars from around the city…
Altar in Jivamukti's Krishna room... window looking out over Broadway. Pictures of saints and enlightened beings surround the altar, running all the way up to the ceiling.
Altar in Jivamukti's Goddess room.
Altar outside someone's apartment in my building... they are constantly adding fruit, incense and candies!!
My altar, on my dresser, filled with things I've collected from all over the world.
