The combination of reading the account of the Celebration Satsang on Makara Sankranti and viewing this photo gallery has been moving for me. I was right there with Gurumayi, Baba, Bade Baba and all the participants! 
 
Thank you so much for this sacred experience!

Oh, what photos! This path is filled with magical surprises. It is really amazing to have satsang with the global Siddha Yoga sangham through the website.

What photos of my beloved Gurumayi! It was hard to move away from one to the next. I wanted to stay with each one. I viewed the slide show with my family, and we experienced darshan of Gurumayi. The image of Gurumayi meditating stays with me, reminding me of her Message, Turn Inward Meditate Easefully.

I feel that I was there with all the seekers in the hall, chanting with Gurumayi. I feel that all these people are my people. I feel so close to each person, as if I know them very well.

Thank you, Gurumayi. I love you!

Today when I awoke, the newly risen sun was shining on my mirror, filling the room with golden light. When I opened the Siddha Yoga path website, there was Gurumayi’s poem. When I read it, my heart leapt in recognition and joy. “Yes!” I thought. “I will also accept this special mandate from my Master.”

Then I saw the photos from the Shubh Makara Sankranti satsang. My heart overflowed with joy to see these glorious pictures—love made manifest as Gurumayi and the students of the Siddha Yoga path celebrated the golden blessings of the sun. The radiance and beauty on every face were a reflection of the presence of divine love.

I have received so much from the website! My entire day has been golden.

Thank you, Gurumayi.

Looking at the pictures today, I could see the beauty and magnificence of the Siddha Yoga path expressed in so many different ways. The pictures portrayed the grace and love of the Siddha Yoga Gurus. They also showed nature's splendor—demonstrating the honor and respect the Siddha Yoga path gives to God’s creation. They portrayed the power of satsang and of coming together to recite sacred scriptures and to meditate.

And, throughout the slideshow, the pictures revealed the effects of engaging in Siddha Yoga sadhana. You only have to look at everyone’s face to see light, love, peace, and happiness.

Thank you, Bade Baba, Baba Muktananda, and Gurumayi, for bringing so many wonderful treasures to my life and to the lives of so many!

Since A Sweet Surprise satsang, I have had a strong wish to see Gurumayi’s photographs. Today, as I opened the website and saw the first photo of Gurumayi in this New Year, I was very happy so see that my wish was fulfilled.

While looking at the gallery, I found myself connecting with each and every photograph. I felt that I was in the Ashram, in satsang with Gurumayi. I felt deep silence, peace, and calmness in my whole being.

Thank you, Gurumayi.

As a daily practice, I visit the Siddha Yoga path website before beginning my work. Today when I saw the photo gallery of the satsang, I felt so connected and blessed by each picture. I felt I was present in the satsang that was taking place in the Ashram.

The connection and shakti were really strong, and it was easy for me to turn within and connect with myself.

Thank you, Gurumayi, for your constant blessings.

I feel so fortunate to be part of the satsang with Gurumayi through the Siddha Yoga path website. In each of these images, I see a beautiful homage to Shri Surya, and a reflection of radiant light and love. By looking at them, my eyes and heart are nourished.
 
The Siddha Yoga path website is so very, very special. Receiving Bade Baba's darshan and participating in satsangs with Gurumayi makes me feel joyful and humble at the same time. My heart is filled with gratitude.

I am amazed and grateful at how alive this celebration is for me—how fully I am able to experience it by viewing the images. I am basking in the joy and fullness of this glorious day. 
 
When I saw Bade Baba's padukas, I pranamed to them and experienced receiving his blessings. It was as if I were right there in the Temple with him. As I viewed the photos of the Siddha Yogis participating in the satsang, their joy was contagious. I delighted in the details of the lovingly arranged pujas and decorations, and of nature's corresponding beauty.
 
And I love seeing Gurumayi!

This morning, after enjoying the glow of the rare winter sunrise outside my window, I asked myself, “What is the most important thing I could tell a young person today?” What arose for me was simply to give thanks again and again for the sweet glory of being alive. With this awareness, my day unfolded so beautifully. And it finished perfectly as I checked the website one last time before bed and was once again astonished at how connected we all are.

Gurumayi's joyous glow was a light as warm as the sun, shimmering within my own heart. I could hear the sounds of the open-hearted chanting that was steeped in love, and I felt we had all been together all day, celebrating the gifts of light, giving thanks for the chance to be here, to know love, and to honor the power that grants us this sweet gift of the amazing glory of being alive.

I am ending my day as it began, with deep gratitude.

The Siddha Yoga path website is so magical. You never know what surprise it may bring to you next. I am filled with love and laughter looking at the pictures of the Shubh Makara Sankranti celebration.

I would like to thank the SYDA Foundation for sharing the satsang pictures with the global Siddha Yoga community.

Shubh Makara Sankranti to all!
