Honoring Our Guru’s Lineage

A Letter from a Siddha Yoga Meditation Teacher

August 2, 2015

Dear Siddha Yogis,

This month of August, the global Siddha Yoga sangham commemorates and reflects on two sacred events. On August 8, we will honor the Punyatithi of Bhagavan Nityananda the anniversary of the day in 1961 when he left his physical body to merge with the Absolute. And on August 15 we will celebrate Baba Muktananda’s Divya Diksha, the spiritual initiation he received from his Guru, Bhagavan Nityananda, in 1947.

These celebrations are a special opportunity for us to deepen our study and practice of the Message that our Guru, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda, has given us for 2015.

As I read the letter, the words slowly melted into my heart, creating a soft stillness throughout my body, as if Bade Baba were making his presence known in this way. What a glorious way to start the month and be reminded of the blessings of the Guru!

How sweet it is to celebrate Bhagavan Nityananda in this month of August.
I’ve been honoring Bade Baba for twenty years by practicing abhishek of his murti, both in my home and at the Siddha Yoga meditation center I attend. Every time I have been a part of this powerful ceremony, I have received so many blessings.  
Once, in meditation, I silently asked Bade Baba what is really taking place during the abhishek ceremony. From within, I saw an image of an old bottle being transformed into a clear crystal. I understood that by participating in the abhishek, the grace of the Guru is purifying me on every level of my being.
Great and infinite is the compassion of the Guru! I bow to Bade Baba with all my heart, with love and gratitude forever.

I’m so grateful to Bhagawan Nityananda, to Baba Muktananda, and to Gurumayi for the gift of shaktipat and the gift of meditation.
Prior to receiving shaktipat-diksha from Baba, I had been trying to meditate for many years, longing for the experience I had read about in the writings of the saints. Through Baba’s grace, meditation suddenly came alive for me, as I experienced the kundalini shakti moving through my being, opening the doorway to the inner world.
Since that time, as I’ve practiced Siddha Yoga sadhana with Baba’s and Gurumayi’s guidance, my experience of the divine shakti has become ever more constant and my experience of meditation ever more joyful, bringing its blessings to my outer life as well.
I offer salutations again and again to the Gurus of our lineage, by whose grace my life has become sacred.
