In the presence of beauty or majesty,
lonely or depressed thoughts depart,
and anxiety and pressure relent.
The emotions that restrain our hearts and the thoughts that pattern our mind
are transformed when
we are surrounded by nature.
Communicating with the world of nature changes consciousness.
Natural beauty warms the heart and enriches the soul,
reminding us that life is worthwhile.
Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche
