Calm mind

“Close your eyes and try to visualise the best scene you have ever seen in your life which calms your mind.” A saint asked the group.
I closed my eyes to concentrate.
“Open your eyes and tell me what do you see?” Two minutes later, he asked me.
“I saw a large channel which I used to cross while going to school in my childhood days. There is a huge harsingar tree (Nyctanthes arbor-tristis) on one of its side near the bridge. During blossom most of its tiny white flowers with orange-red tube fall in the channel and floats with the swift flow of water. I collected those tiny flowers which were not lucky enough to fall in soothing water and fall on hard ground".

If you close your eyes which beautiful scene you imagine that calm mind?
