For a long time, when we concluded our weekly
at the local Siddha Yoga meditation center with
Gurudeva Hamara Pyara
, we found ourselves filled with bliss and gratitude toward Shri Guru. Now, whenever I see this hymn posted on the SiddhaYoga path website at the end of every month, I sing it with reverence and great joy.
During my journey on the Siddha Yoga path, I have found Shri Guru to be my “life’s support” in both mundane activities and my
. The path shown by the Guru in the form of the Siddha Yoga teachings and practices is truly “our life force, which removes all impurities from our minds,” as verse 1 states. I derive immense benefit from the Siddha Yoga teachings and practices. Also, simply remembering Bade Baba, Baba, and Gurumayi does miracles in cleansing my mind and filling me with happiness.

In the form of the mantra, as in so many other ways, my Guru is there for me, making me strong, free, and independent.
