The State of a Siddha

A Talk by Swami Apoorvananda

In honor of Baba Muktananda’s birthday, I want to speak about the state that Baba attained, the state of a Siddha, a perfected being.

Through the grace of his Guru, Bhagavan Nityananda, and his dedicated practice of meditation, Baba came to know and become one with the Self, the divine consciousness at the core of one’s being. This state, of being established in the awareness of the Self, is the goal of the Siddha Yoga path.

Baba’s state of freedom. With some awe, I acknowledge that this is a state I do know. Each day when I enter meditation, I find a state that is not dependent on any outside factor. It exists within me, and yet it is beyond my body, mind, and senses. At its heart is delight.
 
Thus, as I go about my days, I know that in each moment there lies joy. I need only to pause, to remember, and I can enter there.
 
Thank you, Baba, for guiding us toward the state of freedom that you lived in.
