A long time ago, during a satsang
with Gurumayi, the chant had just finished and a peaceful silence was descending on our hearts. Then I heard one little bird singing. I saw him. He was all fluffed up, and he was singing at the top of his little lungs. It seemed to me that he appreciated the chant so much that he could not stop chanting.
Yesterday, at one moment during the satsang,
I found myself chanting very beautifully and freely. It felt as if this little bird was in my chest, bursting with joy, and that my voice was reaching the entire universe. I felt very humble, very grateful, and very happy.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Gurumayi, for being in my life!

During the countdown to the live audio stream of the celebration satsang,
the mantra Om Namah Shivaya
began repeating within me. With every mantra repetition, I was spreading my love and blessings to the Siddha Yogis all around the world.
Then, during the satsang
, as we chanted the mantra, I felt deeply connected to Gurumayi and all the Siddha Yogis participating around the world. I was in ecstasy!
I came back home, laughing all the way. And this laughter has been bubbling up in me since the satsang
Thank you, Gurumayi. Shubh
Gurupurnima to all!
a Siddha Yogi from Dombivli, India
I was on the multimedia team receiving the satsang
at the Siddha Yoga Meditation Center here in Gandhinagar. There had been so much rain before Gurupurnima that there were problems with the electricity and the internet connection. In the midst of all these conditions, the shakti
was so powerful. Laughing with Gurumayi, receiving teachings from her, and perceiving Shri Guru's grace
Thank you so much, Gurumayi.

I was dancing in my living room during the last chanting session. I was reminded of what I had read long ago in Jnaneshwar’s Gita
, where the Lord says that he can be found in the midst of those who chant his name with love.
Thank you, Gurumayi!
a Siddha Yogi from Colorado, USA
During Gurumayi's talk in the satsang
, I found myself wondering how I would remember the profound teachings I was receiving. I was actually furrowing my brows and rubbing them. Right then, Gurumayi started to laugh, bringing me back to the present moment. I felt Gurumayi's compassion and love in my heart, reminding me that we are always one in the heart.
Then I noticed a ray of white light emanating from my heart and streaming towards my Guru's heart. It was astonishing! My heart was recognizing its oneness with Gurumayi! As I continued to watch this beautiful phenomenon in utter amazement, Gurumayi was laughing and laughing!
Thank you, Gurumayi, for guiding me to perceive this divine play of Shri Guru's grace!

After participating in the celebration satsang
with Gurumayi, I feel as if the power of Shri Guru's grace has washed over me, my house, and the whole area where I live. Everything feels so sacred and full of light. I enjoyed every second of the satsang
, and I experienced so much bliss. And now, I feel rejuvenated and serene. My heart is full of wonder and deep gratitude.
Thank you, Gurumayi!
a Siddha Yogi from Großkarolinenfeld, Germany
My heart is so full of love and deepest gratitude! I have longed to be in Gurumayi’s physical presence. Today she has taught me that she is always with me and I merely need to remember the pervasive love of my Guru!
Thank you, Gurumayi, forever and always!
a Siddha Yogi from Tennessee, USA
I am still awestruck by the Celebration Satsang
and by Gurumayi’s presence, love, and compassion which I felt so strongly.
During July, I engaged more intensely than usual with the content of the Siddha Yoga path website, reflecting on the Guru principle and also on the mantra and mantra japa
. The Celebration Satsang
felt like a culmination of this time. Nearly every aspect of the satsang
seemed to be an answer or a confirmation of what I was pondering in the days and weeks before the satsang
. It felt as if the satsang
were specially designed for me. How mysterious! How compassionate!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Gurumayi.
a Siddha Yogi from Cologne, Germany
Chanting with Gurumayi was a great celebration. I felt that Gurumayi was actually sitting in front of me. I firmly believe the Guru's grace is always with me, but to receive Shri Guru's grace and teachings in the live audio satsang
was such a blissful experience.
Thank you, Gurumayi.
a Siddha Yogi from Navsari, India
This morning, with the first syllables of the Om Namah Shivaya
chant, I saw three crows fly into the big maple tree in front of me. They seemed to be watching and listening to the great mantra. Grace became tangible. I felt grace filling the fields, grace blowing the wind in the trees, making them sway with delight. I saw the mantra in the blue sky. After the Om Namah Shivaya
chant, one by one the crows flew away, but not until each one flew around and around my house. It was as if they too wanted to thank God for the Guru. Each minute of the program was the sweetest and most precious moment.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for inviting us to the Universal Hall.
a Siddha Yogi from Vermont, USA
A rare painted bunting came to my bird feeder this morning while I was chanting with our beloved Gurumayi. I think he loved the sound of Gurumayi's voice, as he stayed awhile.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this wonderful Gurupurnima satsang
a Siddha Yogi from Texas, USA
What I experienced was this: the satsang
was divine, auspicious, wonderful, global, universal, peaceful, supreme, blissful, and moonlit. We had more than 200 people gathered at the local Siddha Yoga meditation center, and it was quite a celebration. We were celebrating discipleship. It was late at night, and our hall was filled with the joy resounding in the Universal Hall. As we were opening the hall by chanting mantras, a ray of sunlight beamed over the Gurus’ photos. I was so touched that I couldn't even say the mantras. I felt Gurumayi was truly there.

My heart is bursting with smiles and happiness. It is such a joy to hear Gurumayi chanting with us, sharing her ecstasy, her total freedom. It’s as if she has come into my house and revealed her state, filling my home with her blissful shakti
. What a wonderful gift!
a Siddha Yogi from Frome, United Kingdom
I'm floating in the ever-expansive ocean of divine bliss. The echo of Gurumayi’s laughter makes my heart jump with joy!
a Siddha Yogi from New Delhi, India
The Celebration Satsang just concluded, and I am feeling fantastic. Shubh
Gurupurnima! When the satsang
began, I felt the strings of my heart being played like a harp, as waves of love, joy, and gratitude washed over me. Chanting with Gurumayi was profound, her presence so tangible, her love so palpable.
It’s wintertime and cold here, so I lit a fire in the woodstove. At one time during the chanting, as I watched the flames flicker over the wood, I realized that the flames had increased—they burned so brightly that they too seemed to join in the chant. What a great reflection of the fire inside me being kindled by grace to a roaring flame!
Thank you Gurumayi.
a Siddha Yogi from Melbourne, Australia
Today Gurumayi entered my house and my heart, and by doing so her laughter and the divine chants still resonate, clear as day, in both. Thank you for this blessed and transforming opportunity to perceive and be drenched in the Guru's grace.
