You Are Beautiful
An Account of the Christmas Day Celebrations in Shree Muktananda Ashram

Gurumayi has said many times that on the Siddha Yoga path every holiday, every celebration, is a very good reason to remember God, to glorify God, and to offer gratitude to God. Every holiday is a time to take a moment and experience the divinity within. Every celebration is a time to look around and give one’s best—both within and without, to ourselves and to others; and then carry the amazing spirit of the celebration into our daily lives.
In keeping with this intention for celebrations, the Christmas Day festivities in Shree Muktananda Ashram contributed to everyone’s experience of God’s presence scintillating within and without. The Guru’s grace flowed like a river throughout the celebration, refreshing everyone’s spirit.

Every day I have a feeling of great joy, of a joyful meeting. I switch on my computer and a magic door is opened. I see people who are dear to me; they smile at me. I love each of them so much. And I see they love me, too. We have never met, and there are thousands of miles between us. However, I feel a warm loving stream filling up my heart and any illusion of separation disappears, dissolving miles and boundaries.
There is only one boundless Heart: the Heart of the Lord, the Heart of the Sadguru, the Heart of the Sangham, my Heart.
Thank You, O Sadguru, for your love.
Thank you all for your love.
Thanks to 2012 for all the invaluable blessings and gifts.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year 2013.
While reading the Christmas celebration article, I was so absorbed that I felt I was actually going through all the happenings and enjoying each moment. I felt the vibrations while sitting here in my office reading about namasankirtanas
, the Giving Tree, and all the other events. Thank you very much for making all this possible.

Every morning, after my morning practices, I open the website and connect with the global sangham through the Siddha Yoga path website. I just felt like I celebrated Christmas in Shree Muktananda Ashram. I can't wait till tomorrow, the New Year!
Thank you again and again for this wonderful gift. Merry Christmas and Nutan varsha Abhinandan!

I felt like I was there in Atma Nidhi on Christmas Day experiencing the day along with the sevites at Shree Muktananda Ashram. I could not have asked for a more perfect gift for the holiday season.

Every day you are giving us A Sweet Surprise through the Siddha Yoga path website. Before going to sleep at night I visit the website, and the next morning I eagerly wait for a new surprise. Today, in the morning in the office, when I went to the website it was really a great and a big surprise! It was awesome to read about the celebration and having the beautiful gift of your darshan! Really, so happy to see you, Gurumayi!
Also, thank you to the website department and all other sevites for making this possible.
Happy New Year!!!
