Honoring Baba Muktananda on the 32nd Anniversary of his Mahasamadhi:
A Letter from the Siddha Yoga Swamis

October 1, 2014

Dear Siddha Yogis,


On the Siddha Yoga path, the month of October is dedicated to honoring Gurumayi’s Guru, Baba Muktananda, on the anniversary of his mahasamadhi. On the full moon day of October 1982, Baba left his body, attaining final union with universal Consciousness. In the tradition of the Siddhas, this unique and extraordinary event is known as mahasamadhi, “the great merging.”

Baba was an enlightened being, one who is fully established in his own divinity. He attained realization through the grace of his Guru, Bhagavan Nityananda, and through his own efforts in sadhana.

As I read this beautiful letter and recognized the truth conveyed by it, deep feelings of gratitude filled my being. As I look back at my time of receiving shaktipat, I see that I had no real clue as to what would be the result of this incredible gift in my life. Now I do. Deep transformation has continued to take place, and I am forever filled with love and gratitude to Baba.

Thank you, Baba, for being a true disciple, following your Guru's command, and bringing us all the sacred gift of shaktipat.

When I read Gurumayi's words in the letter from the Siddha Yoga Swamis, tears came to my eyes. I felt the truth of Gurumayi's words burning within me. An expansive choice arose naturally to go for it and let the fire that Baba kindled inside me blaze.

I'm so grateful to Baba and Gurumayi and the amazing grace of this path.

"This divine inner fire is ignited within a seeker through shaktipat diksha." When I read these words in the letter from the Swamis about Baba's mahasamadhi, I felt a pulsation of energy in the crown of my head, reminding me that through the grace of the Guru, the shakti is always alive, always within me.

Thank you, Baba, and thank you, Gurumayi, for this divine and eternal blessing.

When I read, “this descent of grace is an expression of the Lord’s will to reveal the divinity within a human being,” I stopped to take it in. The Lord wants me to recognize the great Self within.

May my individual will be aligned with the Lord’s will. October will be the month to refresh my efforts with the practices, and with the Intensive, which support me in this goal.
