Reading this exquisite verse from the revered Jnaneshvar Maharaj, I can see how his deep devotion and full faith in his Guru inspired him to write this. It describes very beautifully my own sadhana
with the metaphor of "the moon phases."
As I imbibed each word of the quote, I felt immediately drawn to the core of my being, basking in the nectarean cool rays of the full moon in the illustration.
I recognize that as I engage daily with the Siddha Yoga teachings and practices, the transformative power of Shri Guru's grace, guiding me generously and patiently, will "culminate in the full moon of spiritual realization."
Thank you, beloved Shri Gurumayi, for your loving and constant presence in my life.

Reading this verse of Jnaneshvar, I feel his utter trust in the efficacy of his Guru's grace and teachings. I feel his devotion and the full faith that through engaging with the practices that his Guru has given him, he would make it through the different phases of sadhana
; he would walk the path of spiritual unfoldment and ultimately experience the "full moon of spiritual realization."
This accords fully with my own experience of following the Siddha Yoga path. I know that Gurumayi is leading me too to the "full moon of spiritual realization." The Guru protects and nourishes me; she guides me outwardly as a supreme teacher, and she guides me from within as well.

This verse by Jnaneshvar brought a smile to my face that it is still here as I type this. His analogy between sadhana
and the phases of the moon went straight to my heart. Like Jnaneshvar, I too feel the transformative power of Guru's grace as I make steady efforts on the way to full realization.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for showering us with gift after precious gift! My heart is overflowing with love and gratitude.

Experiencing the stress of several challenges in my life, I opened the Siddha Yoga path website today. I felt pulled into the picture of the full moon and drawn to the verse from Jnaneshvar Maharaj. I noticed my tension easing and my breath deepening.
As I read the verse, I felt a splendid ray of moonlight touch the crown of my head and pour down over my body. The light freed me from my thoughts and tension. In that moment, I felt the Guru's grace reaching me through this beautiful verse and soothing me in love.
Thank you so much, Gurumayi. I am truly blessed to be in your light in all the phases of my sadhana
