My two-and-a-half-year-old daughter, my baby in my belly, and I immersed ourselves in the bliss and sweetness of the Chanting Tour in Melbourne. My daughter had been requesting, "I want Om Namah Shivaya, mummy," and she was thrilled to participate in the chanting satsangs offered in Melbourne. Very soon after the section of the tour that took place in Melbourne concluded, I went into labor. I was feeling completely empowered by the power of the chants. During the labor, I had the chants playing in the background, guiding me deep into a pool of inner strength and courage. The birth of my son was truly blissful, peaceful, and miraculous—the fruits of all the chanting.

Thank you, Gurumayi, for the gift of this Chanting Tour, which has given me the opportunity to reconnect with the power of this sacred practice. My son was born on 4/4/14 and continues to hear the sacred chants at home.

This past weekend, I was caring for my granddaughter. Throughout the day, we sang. We sang her nursery rhymes, and I chanted, as I always do when she is with me. I was chanting Narayana in practice for the evening satsang. My granddaughter started singing "Jaya Jaya" in the way only a three-year-old can—full of joy and enthusiasm, playing with the words, as if tasting them. All of a sudden, she started to sing Jaya Jaya Shiva Shambho loud and clear. She had remembered the words from the chant I had been practicing the week before. She seemed very pleased with herself and sang and sang.

I was filled with love and gratitude as I felt the joy and upliftment coming from within her and moving within me. I have been feeling more and more the blessedness of the wonderful gifts we as humanity are receiving from the Chanting Tour, from the Siddha Yoga teachings, from the grace abounding in our lives.

Thank you, dear Gurumayi.

Last night, a Siddha Yogi who had met Baba many years ago unexpectedly appeared at the Siddha Yoga meditation center. He had not attended the center for twenty years. After we warmly welcomed him, someone asked him, "What has brought you here tonight?"

He answered, "You know, I am not quite sure. But tonight I suddenly felt drawn to come here by a great urge to chant. It came out of the blue. I suddenly wanted to chant."

He said he hadn’t seen the Siddha Yoga path website or heard about the Chanting Tour, but an insistent urge to chant, which had come “out of the blue,” had brought him to the center. Everyone who heard him say this shared in his delight.
