The words of this ecstatic bhajan convey to me the essence of Baba, and I feel his presence very palpably this beautiful May morning. May I always have such devotion as Hari Om Sharan, and never waver from the path.
 
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your vision and the grace you bestow, by which I am continuously guided.

Just one of look from Baba filled me with enough love to last an eternity. All I need do is replay a darshan with him in my mind, and he is suddenly right here with me. Then I am filled with a joy that washes away all sorrow, and I am left feeling courageous and supremely blessed.

When I see the picture of Baba, his face dissolves into this beautiful radiant energy that transforms into love. With the feeling comes realization that Muktananda lives inside of me in the form of the shakti that was awakened in me during shaktipat. Thank you, Baba, for being alive in me.

What a wonder that Baba took birth in this world! And how great are the gifts he brought into our lives!

What might my life have been like had God not brought me to Baba? I cannot imagine this. Would I ever be experiencing the fullness of heart that Baba awakened me to? Would I ever have known it was possible for me to experience the bliss that courses through my body, or that God is alive in my being? Would Gurumayi be in my life? And how different the lives of my daughter and her husband and their child—and countless others— might have been had not Baba come into this world!

Oh, Baba, thank you. We are so blessed!

The words of this bhajan describe so well my experience of Baba and what it was like to be with him. No matter what people’s state was when they arrived before him, his bliss would lift them into their own joy and laughter.

I am feeling amazement that such a being came into my life.

After reading this ecstatic bhajan, my heart is filled with love and gratitude for my beloved Gurudev. I thank Shri Hari Om Sharan for creating these beautiful words for our beloved Baba ji.

From the depths of my heart, Happy Birthday Baba.

This lovely bhajan awakens so many memories of Baba. "How shall we sing of his greatness? Our speech is overcome with strong devotion." When I came for Baba's darshan after receiving shaktipat, there were no words that could express my love and gratitude, but I asked him, "How can I serve you?" Baba looked at me for a moment and then told me to love my own Self a lot.
 
I've reflected on Baba's words many times over the years, and his words quoted in this bhajan affirm my understanding. When I see the same Self dwelling in all, and I offer love to that Self in all, I feel I am serving the Guru.

Baba did look at me “for a second,” and that brief glance awakened a blazing light within that I saw reflected everywhere. I had never heard of shaktipat and knew very little about yoga and meditation, but with that glance, the world, myself included, dissolved into shimmering blue light and I experienced divine, unconditional love.
 
And with that glance, Baba changed the course of my life to one that has been filled with meaning, filled with love.
 
Thank you, Baba. And thank you to Hari Om Sharan for expressing the profound love and gratitude so many of us feel.

What a perfect way to celebrate Baba’s birthday! “An Ecstatic Yogi has Arrived” fills me with gratitude, enthusiasm, and amazement—for Baba’s state and for our great good fortune to be heirs of his legacy.
 
Thank you, Hari Om Sharan, for expressing Baba’s majesty, greatness, generosity, and boundless energy so vividly. These words so perfectly capture what a supreme gift it is to have a Sadguru in our lives.
 
Happy Birthday, Baba!
