I felt immersed in a river of deep compassion when I read “Gladness of Spirit.” After practicing it, I wrote down the mantras and committed them to memory. Later on this evening, I found myself looking at the natural world around me and honoring each element where I found it—water in the rainfall, earth in the mountains I live in, fire in the rays of the setting sun, air in the sweet fragrance of mint leaves, and ether in the vast dome of the sky. I feel truly protected and loved when I do this practice, as if the whole universe is my home.
“Gladness of Spirit” is such a magnificent practice and so transformative! With each element, I felt myself being drawn deeper and deeper into the beach scene I envisioned. Nothing else existed and I found myself competely immersed in beauty, profound rest, and the energetic qualities of each of them.
By the time I came to the final element, my whole self was able to experience it in a new way—as well as the totality of them all. I felt so uplifted! My appreciation for each of these elements was profound and joyful.
Practicing “Gladness of Spirit” was a remarkable experience for me. Having just finished it, my being is vibrating sweetly. It is clear to me that by doing this powerful practice, I myself have been blessed and I have also offered my blessings to the world. What good fortune to be able to engage in “Gurumayi’s Guidance”!
