Today my good friend, Shleepea, and I took a stroll through Swami's Gardens. It is a beautiful meditation center with amazing lookouts over the ocean located in the heart of Encinitas. I have visited the gardens many times, yet every time I go it never ceases to take my breath away. It was created by Paramahansa Yoganda, who came to America from India in the 1920s. He was one of the first teachers of yoga to bring it to the Western world. The gardens are open daily and it is one of my favorite places to go and breathe deeply and put life into perspective.
