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.
