always intoxicates me! What a beautiful way to start the morning—offering the day, the work of the day, the actions of the day, to the Guru and to God.
How wonderful to be reminded to chant the arati
as I sit down to the computer. This helps me get into the spirit of offering all I do to God and Guru. And it frees me from expectations and attachment to the fruit of my actions.

Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful arati
recording with us. The sound of Gurumayi's voice draws me instantly into my heart, and I am there, in Bade Baba's temple, beholding Bade Baba's radiant golden form.

I first sang the evening arati
at the Siddha Yoga Ashram in Miami, before Baba Muktananda's evening program and talk. I opened the Nectar of Chanting
and sang the arati
as if I had been singing it all my life. In that moment, I realized that I was home. Everything I had always been searching for—all of my questions—were being answered. I looked up at the beautiful photo of Bhagavan Nityananda above Baba's chair, and my heart exploded with joy.
Since that time, my connection with Bade Baba has never waned. My favorite practice is singing the evening arati
as I walk around the forest by my home. I feel as if Bade Baba and I are walking together.

I was blessed to be able to sing this arati
today in Gurudev Siddha Peeth. When I opened the website to find this post, I was immediately taken back to the place where I was standing this morning, right in front of the magnificent murti

Now, reading the meaning of the arati
is like opening a new door into an ever-expansive ocean of gratitude.

I sat at my computer and opened the Siddha Yoga path website with great anticipation on Baba Muktananda's Divya Diksha Day. I was very happy to see the audio of the Morning and Evening Arati
. As I listened to the Arati,
I was sitting at my desk near large windows with a view of the rose bushes in front of my house. When we reached the verse honoring Baba, a dazzling, luminescent green-and-blue-winged hummingbird hovered above the roses. He seemed to gaze at me as if he too were enjoying the beautiful voices and music of the Arati
. After a few seconds, he darted away and the Arati
