Thank you a million times for these marvelous images. So much beauty, so much splendor! I watch them many times a day. They’ve given me many wonderful experiences of expansion, transformation, and blossoming. I feel myself profoundly assimilating Baba’s teachings about God within me and each person. I have had beautiful dreams since I’ve been watching them.

Lately, I have been reviewing the Siddha Yoga Home Study Course on meditation and practicing the Siddha Yoga teachings on breathing, posture, and mantra japa. The bliss that has been arising as I do this is immense.
 
I have seen the practices of steady posture, easy breathing, and mantra repetition as an act of bowing to this immense bliss within me—honoring my Self.

For the most part, it came naturally to me to see God in other Siddha Yogis. We share a perspective on what life is all about. We experience so much love for each other when we are uplifted by the shakti. We feel like brothers and sisters. We speak the same language, no matter where we come from.
 
When I began to contemplate seeing God in neighbors, colleagues, and relatives who do not practice Siddha Yoga, I noticed a shift in my perspective. I began to feel similar love for them and to see them as equal partners on the demanding path of leading our lives as best we can. I began to assimilate and implement Baba’s teaching on a deeper level—by going beneath the surface and connecting with others through the heart.
 
Such a beautiful, challenging, and rewarding teaching!

"Welcome each other with great respect and love" is one of my favorite teachings from Baba and Gurumayi. It rings so true for me. When I open my heart and welcome everyone I can possibly welcome with respect and love, I am really the first beneficiary. It makes me feel so good, and that naturally is reflected to the person I am welcoming. It’s really so simple!

After meditation this morning, I visited the Siddha Yoga path website and saw Baba's teaching, "Meditate on your Self." As I held the vision of the Blue Pearl and focused on the words, I felt such deep rest wash over me. I understood that my goal, the purpose of my life, is to know this rest, this tranquility, this place in myself that is permanent, deep, and fulfilled.

Thank you so much, Gurumayi, for this gift of the knowledge of the Self.

Thank you for the Siddha Yoga path website.

This teaching, "See God in each other," came at the perfect time for me. I had just had a difficult and tiring day and was, I have to admit, seeing the worst in everyone. Baba's words, "See God in each other," and the image of the pulsating heart reminded me to take some rest, not overextend myself, and see the grace in every situation. I realized how extra tiring it is to blame other people for my fatigue! And how generous and renewing it is to care for myself and see the best in others.
 
Thank you, Baba.

Thank you for these beautiful Blue Pearls! As I watched the third one, with the heart expanding, I experienced both going deeper inside myself and at the same time expanding. These images are all exquisite.
 
Many thanks to all who helped create them and put them on the website for our benefit. May we all carry the experiences into our daily lives.

I love the way the Blue Pearl shimmers and sparkles. I have seen it in meditation, and it is so lovely. The gift of shaktipat diksha has opened a whole new world, and I am forever grateful.

Thank you, Gurumayi and the Siddha Yoga Gurus, for such an eternal blessing.

I am so grateful for these extraordinary teachings! What a sublime use of the Internet.

As I gaze at the Blue Pearl in the center of the blue heart, I become aware that this is my heart. In the same way that I see the Blue Pearl sparkling within or dancing in front of me, here it is sparkling on my computer screen. I become absorbed, delighted. Then I see the words “God dwells within you.” My mind rests on the word God. From the earliest age, this word names the highest, subtlest, most glorious reality for me. I follow the words on the screen as they unfold—within me. My consciousness expands, my heart throbs with love and with the vastness of this revelation: God is within me.

Thank you, Gurumayi! Thank you, Baba! Your teachings are eternally new. There is no end to their depth and breadth.

While viewing the radiant artwork, I feel as if the Self is radiating love to me, honoring me—a creation of its love.

I continue to be amazed and grateful when I look at the Siddha Yoga path website. Just when I think that I have seen the most beautiful images and messages possible, there is more beauty, more grace! The scintillating blue light and Blue Pearl with Baba's profound messages are divine. To be able to receive these precious gifts is pure grace. I realize more and more that the website is alive and filled with shakti.

I have not been physically in Shree Muktananda Ashram or in the physical presence of the Guru for many years, and I have missed this very much. And yet, when I see and experience the images and words that are clearly alive with shakti on the website, I feel connected in my heart and I know that connection is eternal.

Thank you, Gurumayi, Baba, and Bade Baba for your divine grace. I love you, and I am so grateful to you.

While viewing the video of Baba’s teaching, I felt drawn into a state of meditation. When the radiant triangle transformed into a heart, I felt a jolt of powerful love in my heart, and my whole body began to move in my seat. I realize that meditating on the heart is meditating on the Self.

Thank you, Baba!

As I focused on Baba's teaching and watched the Blue Pearl reveal itself in the triangle of light, I had a vision of another Blue Pearl! It flashed in my line of vision as if it were saying, "Yes, I am here, too." The Self in me recognized the Self in this glorious visual display of Baba’s teaching.

Thank you, Gurumayi, for showing us these sacred teachings again and again.

I have been reflecting on all the exquisite photos of the children with Gurumayi and thinking, “Wow, she is teaching them to honor themselves!” Then, lo and behold, this precious teaching from Baba greeted me this morning.

What a blessing this teaching is! How it began to revolutionize my attitude toward myself way back when I first met Baba! How it opened my heart!

I have had so many conversations with myself and inwardly with Baba over the years, saying, “Baba, this is such a tall order. I don’t know how I can do this.” I finally feel that I can deeply understand what Baba meant when he gave this teaching to us. Though I often feel I’m just scratching the surface, it is my mainstay. I remember it with love and gratitude to remind myself of my priorities and to bring my awareness to my heart.

It does not seem possible to thank Baba adequately for this teaching except through living it to the extent we can. Thank you, Baba.

I did not really begin to honor myself until shaktipat initiation, when the divine light of the Self was revealed to me. Until then, I did not know the value within me.

Thank you, Baba, for all your divine teachings. And thank you, Gurumayi, for the most precious gift of shaktipat initiation.

This morning, when I was preparing to teach a hatha yoga class, the focus for the class was “respect.” However, when I shared the focus with the participants, what came out of my mouth was Baba Muktananda's teaching, “Honor your Self.” Throughout the class, whenever I wanted to say “respect,” “Honor your Self” came out, and I was not able to understand why this was happening.

After the class, one of the Gurukula students asked me, “Did you see the Siddha Yoga path website this morning?” I said, “Not yet. Why?” She said that the same teaching that was the focus of the class this morning was posted on the website. I was so surprised, and again I remembered Gurumayi's words, “We are connected." I became so happy and thankful to Gurumayi.
