This story is so compassionate and profound! It reminds me that whenever I can see everything as God, I just relax. In this way I can live deeply connected to God in my own heart whatever I am doing and wherever I am, no matter what happens.

This story inspires me to be like "baked" Namdev and realize that there is nowhere Shiva's love is not acting. Even in the challenging situations I cannot understand, the Guru's grace is ever-present.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your unfathomable love!

I had read and heard this beautiful story many times before, but this time, reading it out loud, I was moved to tears.
I am forever grateful for this path, this life, for all the saints and sages, and for my Guru.

The more I learn about the poet-saints of Maharashtra—about these amazing beings and their legacy—the more I appreciate how Baba Muktananda and Gurumayi have made their teachings so accessible for Siddha Yogis.
Before, I wouldn't have believed that these kinds of human beings could exist. Now I not only believe that they do, but I see them as my example to follow.

It is so touching to read about the moment when Namdev first realizes that there is nowhere that is not Shiva, and that it is through Vishoba’s instruction that he has been given this knowledge of nonduality. When I
read this text, tears came as I recognized that the same gift has been bestowed on me by Gurumayi.
I feel such gratitude for this gift of the Truth, expressed here through the compassion of my beloved Guru.

As I've read this story through the years, I've experienced many different emotions. Today I felt, “I want that—I want to experience that feeling of devotion in my heart!” I was crying a little, with joy and longing. And then I realized that devotion is already in my heart, expressing itself as this beautiful longing!
Thank you, Gurumayi.
