Anjana's Prayer

As I followed Anjana's journey, I was filled with gratitude for the direction it gives to me and to so many of us as we travel on the Siddha Yoga path.
 
Focusing on the images of nature on the Siddha Yoga path website calms my mind. Then, just as Anjana follows the instructions of Shri Matanga, I can follow Gurumayi’s guidance more fully.
 
I may not journey physically up the mountains as Anjana did, but the sacred images of nature shared on the website have most certainly connected me to nature’s greatness. In this way my heart opens, my mind quiets, and I experience the joy of the Self- sweet satsang moment, indeed.

As I ponder Anjana’s dedication, I understand that I have the capacity to live in paradise, too, the paradise of the Self. I can give myself wholeheartedly to my own breath—the natural and persevering breath—and allow it to take me to my own inner happiness, the Truth within.
 
I pray for my intention to blossom and become as ardent and pure as Anjana’s.

I especially appreciate this story because recently I’ve been practicing simply being with myself by focusing on my breath. As I do this, I’m noticing that my usual preoccupations loosen their hold on me. I feel fulfilled by my breath, and happy with my own good company.

The story shows me the surprising power of the breath to bring happiness and contentment. The learning is paradoxical for me: to see that by merely breathing with awareness, I can naturally let go of attachment and gain deeper pleasure than I had wished for in the first place.
