Tears of Gratitude

I received shaktipat on my mother's birthday in 1987. After resisting the beauty and the perfection that surrounded me, my heart cracked open. A deep feeling of love, gratitude, and relief surged in my heart, my body, my surroundings, and pervaded everything. I could not stop crying, feeling joy and sorrow at the same time. I felt that I was back home after eons.
That day, I embraced the Siddha Yoga path. Remembering and reconnecting with my shaktipat experience has kept me on the spiritual path.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for being in my life.

I remember my first Shaktipat Intensive. Though at the time I had been meditating for years, I really did not know what to expect. The Intensive turned out to be unlike anything I had ever experienced before in my life.

I was enveloped by great love and bliss, and I experienced a warm energy entering me and arising from within. I had the feeling that I had become very strong—not so much with a temporary, physical kind of strength, but with a divine and eternal strength, rooted in love.

I still feel this energy with me now, as much as when I first experienced it in the Intensive.

I am forever grateful to Gurumayi, Baba, and Bade Baba for this eternal blessing.

Thirty one years ago, I experienced the most auspicious day of my life in a Siddha Yoga Shaktipat Intensive. Time stopped, bliss flowed in waves through me, and I felt my heart expand to embrace all of creation. All that existed was peace, light, love, and oneness. Baba's words, "God dwells within you as you," became a glorious, palpable reality for me. My heart was transformed beyond any of my visions of possibilities.

Throughout all my life up to that divine day, I felt as if there was no place I could really call home. Then, in a divine, sparkling instant of my Guru's grace, I returned to the long-forgotten but familiar sacred home of my heart.

Since that sacred day I live my life in gratitude to Bade Baba, Baba, and Gurumayi.

Thank you for posting this exquisite share. And thank you to the author. I often reflect on how the Siddha Yoga path offers such profound experiences, unlike anything I have ever experienced in any other way.

I can hardly wait for this Intensive. Thank you, Gurumayi.
