Just as the rains have brought great relief to some regions in Australia, this beautiful prayer has brought relief to my aching heart and tears of gratitude to Lord Parjanya, the god of rain, for his generosity and compassion, which is bringing healing and new life to the land that was so parched. Seeds have survived the blaze and life is bursting forth again.
Although I have lived in London for many years, Australia is my homeland, and when I think of all the kind and compassionate people around the world sending their prayers and blessings, and chanting and meditating, holding Australia and its people in their hearts, my own heart melts with gratitude to them.
Thank you, Gurumayi for bringing us all together in this beautiful way.

These verses from the
moved my heart more deeply than I have ever felt before. I am more aware of the power of Mother Nature.
I am refreshed and invigorated by the lightning flashing overhead and the rumbling thunder and soaking rains which have arrived in my region. What was dusty, cracked, and dry has softened and healed. The fires here are out, though we continue to pray for other areas that are still ablaze. Smoke here has been replaced by gentle mist and soft rain through the night.
I feel that Lord Parjanya has visited us in his “water-laden chariot,” drenching the soil and seeds that hid in the earth clinging to life. Fresh green sprouts are bursting up. Dust has turned into a close-cropped grassy carpet. What a miracle!
I am praying that the Lord of Rains reaches the hearts affected and softens and consoles those who have suffered and lost so much. I pray for new hope and life for the communities of those who will build afresh through their love for home, land, and each other.

After several days of heatwave conditions, a tropical storm has marched through Sydney. The pavements are being pounded, the gardens are quivering under the weight of rain drops. The atmosphere is saturated with water, thunder, and lightning. It is hugely energizing. Inside myself I feel quite ecstatic as if I am witness to a conversation between the divine forces. It’s a perfect reflection of this beautiful prayer from the
especially verse 7.
What is the source of this great blessing of rain in our heat-ridden and bushfire-scorched country? The prayers and blessings of so many.
To anyone who has prayed and wished us well at this time, know that we are receiving your love, your blessings, and your goodwill. It is pouring down quite literally. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the multitude of great hearts who are offering love to Australia at this time.
This evening, as the rain fell and the thunder rumbled, I felt your presence, the presence of the prayers and blessings of many. And it was very, very divine.
