Dear reader,

As February approaches, people around the world are preparing to celebrate Chinese New Year, as well as Ganesh Jayanti and Vasant Panchami. On the Siddha Yoga path, too, we are celebrating. This is the year of the golden anniversary of Shri Guru Gita recitation, and we are contemplating and practicing Gurumayi’s Message for 2022.

There is something more on the horizon, as well.

On Saturday, February 5, at 10 a.m. eastern standard time (USA), a Siddha Yoga satsang will be held via live video stream in the Siddha Yoga Universal Hall. The satsang will begin with the arati Jyota se Jyota Jagao, and shortly after that, we will recite Shri Guru Gita.

There are many paths to realization. There are many spiritual practices that people engage in. There are many ways to come to know God. Shri Guru Gita draws our attention to the power of the Guru’s grace in our endeavors to know God, and it emphasizes the importance of adhering to the Guru’s teachings.

Verse 99 of Shri Guru Gita says: “One should purify one’s mind by following the path shown by the Guru.” Relatedly, therefore, the name of the Siddha Yoga satsang on February 5, 2022, is Choose, Respect, Sustain.

Warm regards,


Carlos del Cueto
