After viewing each of the images and reading Baba's words, my heart swells with emotion. I have longed for years to know Baba better, and these images give me a precious and sacred darshan.  
 
I offer my heartfelt thanks to Gurumayi, and, of course, to Baba for bringing the practices and teachings to my homeland many years ago. I feel so blessed!

When the pictures of Baba with the beautiful quotations came up on the website, I decided to memorize one of the passages each night before bed. I was surprised how easy it was to do this! Just by reading them aloud a few times, I could learn them, and was often able to recall them spontaneously throughout the next day.
 
I know that Baba's love was supporting me in this endeavor. Since I started doing this practice, my heart has been filled with such sweet love. My meditations have been full of peace and bliss. When I look at Baba's picture, I feel his presence smiling back at me. In this way, I have had a direct experience of the teaching that when you take one step toward the Guru, the Guru takes countless steps toward you.
 
Thank you, Baba. Thank you, Gurumayi, for making these wonderful pictures with Baba's words available to us all!

The sweet darshan of Baba's photo gallery stirs a place deep in my heart. It is the essence of Baba. The words are so inspiring and hopeful. I feel as though I have just met Baba for the first time, and simultaneously, as though I have known him forever. Yes, that’s it—it is a timeless recognition.

The first time I experienced Baba's darshan was during an evening satsang at Shree Muktananda Ashram, in 1979. As Baba came into the hall and moved down the aisle, it was as though the sun had entered the room. Even though he walked along so lightly, there was a sense of tremendous power, solidity, and brightness emanating from his being.

Later, when I came up to receive Baba’s darshan, he looked at me with recognition, as though he had always known me. I felt that I had come home. Now, once again, having Baba's darshan in these beautiful photos, I recognize how he has continued to be a bright and ongoing presence in my sadhana.

Thank you, Gurumayi, for this exquisite darshan with Baba, and for your steady and loving presence in my life.

I first met Baba in Oklahoma when I was a graduate student at the university there. Baba held a dancing saptah, and he was full of ecstasy. It was a beautiful time that I will always relish. I remember watching Baba playing the tambourine and chanting God's name. His energy filled the room, and it was transformed into a space full of joy and grace.

These pictures are a reminder to me of that wondrous time. Baba lit up my life and the world during those years, and I continue to experience his darshan in my waking and dream states.
