I especially love the pictures of Bhagavan Nityananda in his Temple at Shree Muktananda Ashram. As I gaze at his face, I sense the multifaceted beauty unique to that exquisite place; I feel it wafting into my mind, mingling with my heart, and radiating into my home.

Today, before beginning my morning singing of Jyota Se Jyota Jagao, I opened up my laptop and found the close-up picture of Bade Baba in his beautiful Christmas regalia. As I sang and waved the flame before the picture of Gurumayi on my puja, I found myself turning toward Bhagavan and performing arati for him as well! It felt like such a sacred honor to be in his Temple, offering the light, the chant, my voice, and my heart to him in person!

I feel such a sense of safety, comfort, and unspoken loving admiration when I am in touch with Bhagavan Nityananda. Seeing him in these photo galleries helps me reconnect to this sacred love, which has continually blessed and uplifted my life.

Each time I look at the photos posted on the Siddha Yoga path website, I am in awe! Today, as I was looking through them again, I stopped on the close-up photo of Bade Baba's foot and was drawn straight into my heart. I have had the good fortune to frequently visit the Bhagavan Nityananda Temple at Shree Muktananda Ashram, but have never before noticed Bade Baba's feet in this way. The image was so powerful; I felt myself drawn deeper and deeper into meditation. And as I understood what was happening, I said to myself, "The Siddha Yoga path website is the best seat in the house!"

My heart expands as I browse through the Siddha Yoga path website. I feel so connected with everyone in the sangham. The website is my home, and I visit it every day to keep in touch with my family.

Thank you, Gurumayi.

This morning when I opened the website, I saw the words: "Welcome to the Siddha Yoga path." Although it's not the first time I have seen these words, this morning was special. I felt how perfect my life is because I am on a most perfect path. I felt so fortunate! God's grace is boundless.

Thank you, my beloved Gurumayi, with all my heart.

The sparkle of string lights has always been one of my favorite parts of the holidays. I noticed how in some of these images each light is perfectly in focus, each with a slightly unique sparkle. In other images, they are out of focus and each light looks the same, appearing as though they are blending into one another. I find such beauty in both of these effects, just as I find beauty in both the uniqueness and the unity of each seeker on this path.

I love viewing the crystal sphere hanging from the holiday tree. As I gaze into it, I see the reflection of the room with its sparkling lights. I feel as if I am physically present in Shree Muktananda Ashram and the Ashram is in my heart. I am filled with joy.

As I was contemplating the Happy Holidays Gallery, I started feeling the magic and love that the images radiate. Deep inside, I understood that I am connected to all of that, and I am able to offer it to the world, too.

Thank you so much, dear Gurumayi, for all the constant blessings I receive in so many different ways.

I'm so grateful and honored to be invited into the Guru's house for this joyful celebration! I feel that just as the holiday tree supports all the beautiful decorations sparkling in their different colors and forms, so too does the Guru sustain all her devotees in their sadhana. To me, this is a matter of great celebration.

Thank you, Gurumayi.
