“Nature is the limb of God. Seeing this vast nature, one should not think it is different from God.
One should understand the fundamental truth that divinity pervades the entire creation.”
– Sri Sathya Sai Baba

When our co-founders – Shivani Sinha Sola and Shaguna Sinha, were on the Amarnath Yatra, they also visited Gagangir – at the heart of Kashmir. This beautiful little resort – Snowber Resorts – was picturesquely located at the foothills of the serene mountains, and a calm valley beside it. The serenity and the solitude of the Himalayas beckoned them to contemplate and meditate. As they did, the River Devas prompted them to call everyone here, and the Nature Devas joined them too. The Devas wanted them to call other like-minded spiritual seekers and share this abode of Divinity with them!
