What a joy to watch and listen to Swami ji's talk! As I reflect on the talk, many sweet, sweet memories come back to me of when I met Baba in Oakland in 1979 and my time with Baba over the next few years. What a blessing to recall those times!
I was particularly touched when Swami ji spoke of Baba telling him, “
” and Swamiji’s realization that Baba was teaching him, “The way you hold the Guru, and keep the Guru with you, is through love.” This has been my experience and this talk comes at the perfect time to remind me of this profound truth.

" As I watched the video, I felt myself repeating these words of Baba’s. I feel such a recognition in these words, looking at everything and thinking "This is love," "That is love," and seeing Baba in all I do.

This video is very beautiful and uplifting, and truly vibrant with devotion and love for the Guru. I have never met Baba or Gurumayi in person, but Swami Ishwarananda's words give me a glimpse of what it would be like to know Baba and be in his presence.
I was grateful to hear Swami Ishwaranada sharing his beautiful experience of Baba revealing the secret of keeping the Guru close to us:
, or love. This teaching resonates very deeply with me, because this has been my experience of practicing Siddha Yoga for the past forty years.
Though I never met Baba in person, I have experienced his presence very palpably in my life. Little things would happen, and I would feel the hand of his grace, and say to myself, "O Baba!" When I started having powerful meditation experiences early on and wrote to thank him, his response was, "Very good; continue to meditate with love."
Loving the Guru has always been at the core of my practice of Siddha Yoga. Practicing with love continually opens my heart to experience the Guru's sublime love, which sustains me and gives my life meaning and the greatest joy.
