Yesterday I noticed that a bush in our backyard had started flowering. I remembered that last year when this bush flowered, it was Mahashivaratri time! As I clipped a few flowers to offer on the puja
for the chanting and meditation group satsang
in our home, the thought arose, "I am offering these flowers to Shiva, to the Great Lord." There was a burst of devotion within me. I felt gratitude to God for creating these perfect flowers, for God who exists as the flowers, for God who is within me, and for God who is everywhere at all times!
Receiving this majestic letter from the Swamis this morning, I am filled with excitement and joy that we will all be celebrating Mahashivaratri and this month of Shiva together

Wow! Last month, the Siddha Yoga path website offered so many treasures for embodying Gurumayi’s Message for 2015. There were clear teachings and wonderful satsangs
, photographic beauties, inspirations, insights, and practical supports. I’ve been meditating for 30 years, and I feel as if in the last 30 days I have learned as much about the meaning, the purpose, and the state of meditation, as I have in all the previous time!
Now we start February with such a rich set of teachings. I feel as though I could unwrap this single letter all year and still have more to find. I am excited about what I will learn and experience, and I am inspired to make this a month of worship, of meditation, of mantra, of Shiva drishti
Thank you, dear Swamis, for helping to set my sadhana
sights for the night of February 17 and the entire month ahead.

Thank you to the Swamis for so fully inviting us into the celebration of Mahashivaratri. I am so grateful for the teachings on the Siddha Yoga path website that are preparing us to open to the blessings of this night. As I finished reading this letter, I was already experiencing the mantra pulsating very strongly in my throat.
