Looking at this post and the beautiful image brought back memories of the time when I was a little child and we used to sing this hymn at the culmination of our children's satsangs
. Ever since, I have felt very connected to the lyrics of this hymn. They give me a clear sense of what having a Guru really means, how to serve the Guru, and the grace of a Guru being in my life.
Instantly tears of gratitude arose in me for our beloved Gurus, who have always stood beside us, enlightening our lives, and walking with us through the varied phases of this life.
Thank you for posting this hymn today for Baba's Birthday celebration!

The melody of this hymn, which we have often sung after a Siddha Yoga chant, has always evoked joy in me, a sense of celebration and happiness. Now, seeing the words here on the Siddha Yoga path website, during Baba's month, I can take this opportunity to reflect on their meaning. What does it mean to me that the Guru is my life’s support?
The awakened shakti
within my being, my commitment to the teachings, and my dedication to the practices, all these are
the foundation of my life—they truly are my life’s support. And when I remember this, I do experience that “Gurudeva’s shakti
is limitless.” I see and feel that support reflected back from everywhere—in the people I encounter and the experiences I have in my daily life.
Yes, our Guru is beloved to us!
