I was so moved by the photo of Gurumayi, gazing upward over the fire in front of the Shiva Nataraj statue. So I then offered prayers along with Gurumayi. And the photo of Gurumayi observing— with such love and smiles—the younger sevites as they cooked made my heart soar.
I feel so blessed to see how the Guru teaches us in such a multitude of ways. How grateful I am to be walking this path! All I have to do is open my heart, open my eyes,and open my mind.

I am grateful to Gurumayi for sharing the beautiful photos in this gallery. As I saw the images, I was profoundly touched and experienced grace in my heart.
There is such a sense of joy, light, love, and abundance in the photos! I smile with gratitude. Seeing the images of people, animals, children, nature, sun, moon, Mahalakshmi, and Gurumayi left me with the sense that experiencing joy is important and that I can access it through spiritual practice.

The Festival of Lights photo gallery is so captivating. Before viewing this gallery, I was experiencing uneasiness. When I took a pause, I knew I wanted to visit the Siddha Yoga path website. Seeing images of light illuminating nature, of devotion and of nourishment, I felt the inner light of joy in my heart and soul! I also experienced a sense of reassurance that the light is forever present. I am filled with gratitude for this path, which has brought so much beauty and grace to my life.

Thank you, Gurumayi, for this kind gift that you sent to all of us around the world.
The photo of Gurumayi looking at the baby girl (#45) makes me really happy. It inspires me to celebrate life in its entirety and to gaze at the world with a wonder-filled attitude.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for teaching me how to be joyful and amazed by the presence of the Divine in every being!
