I often evaluate the effectiveness of my sadhana and my level of spiritual expansion by how patient I am with a certain relative.  Through the years, my progress has been very slow but steady—little by little, step by step. However, I have noticed that since the Chanting Tour began, my baby steps have picked up pace and I can feel my flower of patience opening up,petal by petal!

Thank you, Gurumayi, for the precious gift of the Chanting Tour!

The two Chanting Satsangs at the NIDA Parade Theatre in Sydney were unique events: a beautiful theater setting, an accomplished live music ensemble, Siddha Yoga teachings and explorations on mantra and sound, the resonant Aum of the didgeridoo invoking and offering blessings to the indigenous people of the great southern land, and vivid stories about the history of Siddha Yoga chanting. And when we chanted, we all contributed to creating celestial sounds! All of this was permeated by Gurumayi’s loving presence. Bravo!

Thank you so much, Gurumayi, for inspiring this historical and inspired event.

I was hosting a Chanting Satsang at the Siddha Yoga Ashram in Sydney during the Chanting Tour. We were chanting Jaya Jaya Shiva Shambho as people entered the hall, and as the hall filled up, the chanting increased in intensity. Suddenly I began to feel nervous. I remembered at that moment to invoke grace, but I wasn't quite sure how to do it. Then I started to listen intently to the chant, a practice we had learned about earlier in the week. As I did this, almost immediately, I experienced that Gurumayi wasn't far away; her grace was manifest in the chant and in the chanting, which enveloped me—the sound was all around me and through me. I felt calm and reassured—an experience that lasted as I offered hosting seva throughout the sublime night we had here in Sydney.

Thank you, Gurumayi!

Several days after participating in the Regional Audio Broadcast Enter the Abode of Sound, I was having lunch in a rather busy and noisy restaurant. All of a sudden, I could hear the chant Shri Ram Jay Ram. I kept my focus inward, quietly eating and enjoying my lunch, listening to the strains of Shri Ram Jay Ram. This experience showed me the power of chanting to permeate my everyday life and activities.

Deepest gratitude to you, Gurumayi, for all that you have given and all I have received.

As a result of the Chanting Tour, the world has been bathed in the sweet and pure vibrations of chanting from Siddha Yogis around the globe. Gurumayi has taught us how paradise can be made manifest through the power of sound, and that we can do this on a daily and moment-to-moment basis. We are so blessed!  
Thank you, Gurumayi.
