While looking at a set of photos of Bade Baba, Baba, and Gurumayi, I felt a deep sense of appreciation for the act of performing puja in my home. I recognized how I am led to a calmer state from which I can view challenging situations in my life more openly. The act of worship allows me to express my gratitude for all that I have received while following the Siddha Yoga path for several years. This beautiful exposition gave me guidance and inspiration.

Each morning for many years, I have performed guru-puja before meditation, using many of the elements Swami ji describes. But reading this exposition has reminded me that the most important element in puja is "the feeling and the awareness with which we perform worship.”

After I read Swami ji’s words, I formed the intention that in the future I would perform puja much more consciously, remembering to offer my outer actions with “devotion, respect, and reverence,” and with an awareness of oneness with the Guru, with the divine. Then, holding this intention, I went to my meditation room and offered puja before the Guru’s picture. As I did this, I experienced the sweetness and power of this practice, feeling the Guru’s shakti and feeling the boundary between worshiper and the one being worshiped dissolve.

I’m so grateful for this very inspiring exposition.
