Happy Raksha Bhandhan!
This morning during a discussion with other Siddha Yogis I found myself saying, “I am Gurumayi's servant.” In saying this, I felt such a deep connection with my heart.
Then, on the website, I saw the words of Saint Ravidas : “O Lord, you are the Master and I am your servant.” I was so touched. I realized that truly we are connected.
I pray for such devotion all the time.

Today on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan I woke up feeling very happy. I opened the Siddha Yoga path website and saw this bhajan. I read the words Prabhu jī Tuma Chandana Hama Pānī. ThenI started singing the bhajan and I will sing it the whole day with all my heart and mind.

After reading this bhajan, I took a walk under the moon and contemplated Raidas’s words and images, and my relationship to the Guru. I was happy, and as I walked, I felt my own happiness as the manifestation of the Guru principle. The Guru principle has seemed abstract for me. But tonight, I felt it as elemental to me as the moonlight that provides sustenance for the chakora bird, and as the light that fulfills the wick’s existence in Raidas's bhajan.
When I got home, there was a sense of yearning and devotion in my heart. I had planned to watch a movie, but I was drawn to protect the sacredness of my experience. I spent the rest of my evening in meditation.
Thank you, Gurumayi.

“O Lord, you are the sandalwood and I am the water:
Your fragrance permeates my entire being.
Your fragrance pervades everything.”
This image captures me! I am water, and I am permeated with the fragrance of my Guru. I may look the same as I ever did, yet I am changed in a way that can never be undone. I am forever steeped in the fragrance of grace.
As I move through the activities of my day, I am returning to this image, over and over. It instantly brings me to the Guru’s presence. It attunes me to her divine fragrance, which is, indeed, everywhere.
