Thank you for sharing the highlights of Gurumayi's Birthday Celebration on June 24 in Shree Muktananda Ashram with all of us through this exquisite slideshow. I really am experiencing the satyam, shivam, sundaram—truth, auspiciousness, and beauty—of the day. It shines on the face of our Guru, the faces of the devotees, and now I feel it inside. And as I look outside at nature, I see it there also.

As I watched every detail of the slideshow, my heart glowed with gratitude, reminding me that the Guru is constantly taking us toward the magnificent goal of perfection. Every slide, like a seed, was sowed deeply in my heart as a superb infusion of grace, encouraging me to perfect the areas in my life that still need to be polished.

Through this slideshow, I felt personally involved with the celebration of Gurumayi's Birthday—a truly joyous occasion. Seeing the love emanating from Gurumayi led me to start thinking of her as the Guru of love.

Over the years, my family and I often visited Shree Muktananda Ashram to offer seva, and always we would experience a wonderful welcome from sevites who were full of love. It was so uplifting and was as much appreciated then as it is now!

As soon as the slideshow began, the Guru's energy washed over me and immersed me in love. When I saw Gurumayi in the Temple, it was as though I was there too. All of my senses awakened. My heart, my entire being was open to darshan. Love and bliss poured over me.

As I watched the slideshow of Gurumayi's Birthday again today, along with the exquisite music accompanying it, I felt I had just been on a very sacred pilgrimage.

Each image exuded divine love and joy. Gurumayi's face in the last image seemed to speak a thousand words to each devotee on the Siddha Yoga path.

Thank you for the prasad!

Thank you for this exquisite slideshow of Gurumayi's Birthday Celebration. Chanting with the video chant gave me the feeling that I was included. I felt Gurumayi’s love through the eyes and smiles of everyone there. Gurumayi’s great love "zinged" my heart!

Thank you for the cleansing tears, chills, and joy from the experience of Birthday Bliss in the slideshow. Every moment from the flag waving in the sky, to Gurumayi's worship of Bade Baba, to her enjoying the fruits of the kitchen, to the heavenly sand rangoli, to the chant, to the birthday song, to the luminous dance, to the glorious cake, to Gurumayi’s time with the children, to her beautiful smile, to the fullness of the moon—every moment was truly the essence of bliss. My heart is filled with love for my Guru and with immense gratitude for being on this path with my Siddha Yoga family.

I am full of gratitude for my Guru's love. I couldn't travel to be with Gurumayi for her birthday, and in her generosity she brought her birthday to me. I wanted to celebrate Gurumayi, and she celebrated me. I yearned for her darshan, and she gave it to me on the website. Gurumayi answered my every prayer and surprised me with even more abundant blessings. 

Thank you, my Guru, with all of my heart.

Thank you for sharing the joy of this blessed day through the slideshow. Gurumayi continuously teaches me to worship life in each moment. It makes me realize how sacred and extraordinary her life and mission are. How lucky we are to be on this path and have her as our Guru, showing us the way.

The radiance of Gurumayi is a pervasive vibration of love. I could feel her shakti through her hugs of the children, the presence of all the participants, and the beautiful presentation of this slideshow. I felt as if I were there.

Watching this slideshow, I was drawn to look at all of Gurumayi’s devotees. You can see so much love in everyone’s face. I felt I could imagine exactly the love that each person was feeling while chanting with Gurumayi or standing in her presence.

I started thinking about all the people who are touched by Gurumayi’s love, and how many people all around the world, including those who’ve never met Gurumayi, were also feeling the love that I saw in the slide show.

As I view the Birthday Bliss slideshow, the glance of the Guru seems to reveal my own innate goodness, my own inner light. I love this path with all my heart and I love this global community.

Thank you for the Birthday slideshow. It is so beautiful. I could feel the shakti moving through my whole body. I still have goose bumps on my arms! I felt I could see all the virtues pouring forth from Gurumayi’s actions, gestures, and her smile. I feel filled with my Guru’s blessings and inspiration for my sadhana.

Thank you so much for the beautiful slideshow -- the chant, the amazing cake, the enchanting sweetness and beauty of all those moments! I was able to experience “the extra glow” that Gurumayi wished for us in her talk at the beginning of June.

Thank you so much for this wonderful slideshow—really, the cherry on an exceptionally wonderful cake, the bliss-filled month of June. Seeing Gurumayi with the children made me feel so warm and loved. I felt enveloped in the glow of her warmth. The children seemed to represent each one of us as we offer our love and wishes to Gurumayi. The experience is so real and tangible.
Yes, we love you, Gurumayi, with all our hearts.
