When I opened the Siddha Yoga path website this morning and saw the image of Bhagawan Nityananda as well as the post of the Nityananda Arati, my heart soared. I lit a candle, clicked on the arati, and sang it right then and there. The act of singing and waving the candle before the image of Bade Baba became a joyful expression of my profound gratitude for Bade Baba and the legacy of the Siddha Yoga path.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for creating an environment in which we are all able to immediately connect with the heart and experience Bade Baba's teaching, "The heart is the hub of all sacred places. Go there and roam."

Hail to our dearest Bade Baba! When I visited the website, I felt I was in Bade Baba's mandir in Ganeshpuri. Then I started singing, “Jaya jaya arati Nityananda,” and the joy was flowing and flowing! And from reading the meaning of the words of this arati, I felt so grateful to Bade Baba.

Thank you, Bade Baba, for coming to this earth for your devotees. Thank you, Gurumayi, for your abundant grace.

When I started singing the Nityananda Arati along with the recording, I felt this energetic sensation at the top of my head, as I have before when thinking about Bade Baba. I often think that is where Bhagawan Nityananda really resides inside of me.

What a blessing to be able to sing the Nityananda Arati in my home. With fresh, fragrant flowers from our garden, arranging the puja just right, and singing along with the musicians, my entire being is vibrating in soft tones. This Nityananda Arati is one of countless gifts Gurumayi gives us. I feel so fortunate, so blessed.

Singing the Nityananda Arati, my heart resonated with the chanting, leaving me full of love, vibrating within.

Thank you, Gurumayi. Thank you to all who bring us this website.

When I saw the image of Bade Baba on the website, I turned within, and I saw the image of the painting within myself. Where Bade Baba’s belly is, I saw the image of AUM. This felt very precious and I heard within, “Everything is made by AUM, all this is created by AUM, and AUM is the soundless sound that vibrates all the time in the universe.”
