Such a sweet, lilting, mesmerizing poem—it immediately drew me in, created images, made me pause and connect to the present moment, and have a honey-filled moment of satsang.
I have always been drawn to the moon and can gaze at her for hours, feeling her peaceful, cool, and pristine presence wash through me. Often, as a child, I would look for the moon hanging in the sky, sometimes appearing so large that I felt I could reach out and touch it. This year, this month, I shall be looking out for her with a renewed focus and love, drawn into Gurumayi's imagery, into my sadhana, into satsang, and meditation.
Thank you, Gurumayi. I can feel the moon’s rays bathing me, even though it is broad daylight right now.

I am in awe of Gurumayi's generosity in sharing these extraordinarily intimate glimpses into the state of a Siddha. I bow in deepest pranam for all that I have received on this amazing Siddha Yoga path, and for Shri Gurumayi’s infinite blessings, that continue to carve and mold my life. May this Guru-disciple relationship last for all eternity.

When I used to wait in the darshan line to come before the Guru, I always wanted a question answered, or favor granted, or to have the Guru pay some special attention to me, or make me feel significant in some way. But once I actually was in front of Gurumayi, all I wanted to say was, "Thank you." I was always so overcome with such feelings of gratitude that nothing else seemed important or worth saying.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for sharing with us your shaktipat experience of the moon. I have always been awestruck by the full moon. Now I know why. Once again I am awestruck by the revelations of my Guru.

While reading this poem, light, grace, and silence shimmered through my body and heart. The blue color and the radiance of the stars in the background, combined with the sound of the words, guided me gracefully into meditation. There, I was surrounded by gentle moonlight, and I felt a deep silence inside. When I opened my eyes and looked up in the sky, I saw the rising of the tiny new Gurupurnima moon, gently covered in pink clouds. What a precious moment.
Thank you, Gurumayi, from deep in my heart, for this auspicious gift and moment of satsang. Shubh Gurupurnima!

A river of shimmering blue light filled me up inside when I started reading Gurumayi's  beautiful Gurupurnima poem. Word by word, verse by verse, an infinite universe was unfolding inside of me. Rays of blue light, shimmering stars, my Guru's sweet voice were all pulsating through me. I realized that the words in this poem took me on an inner journey to the universe of bliss—unconditional and everlasting love.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this amazing and auspicious satsang with Gurupurnima.

When I was a child, I felt mesmerized by the moon. I felt we had a special relationship that I could not put into words. Now that my city has grown so much, I can hardly see the moon anymore.
This sweet poem has brought back not so much the memory but the actual feeling of that personal connection I felt with the moon.
For this gift, I can't thank you enough, dearest Gurumayi.

Reading this exquisitely beautiful poem by Gurumayi, I feel ushered into living the remaining days of July in true satsang with the moon. From a delicate crescent as she is tonight, until she grows to her fullness on Gurupurnima, so will I, day after day, grow fuller in energy, steadfastness, and trust.
What an incredible Guru we have! As Gurumayi bestows her grace with such glorious artistic expression, my own creativity and sweetness of the heart are evoked and kindled.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your never-ending, generous guidance and inspiration.

I was contemplating why Gurumayi has shown us these particular ways to celebrate the rising of Gurupurnima. I concluded that by following these ways, by taking time out "to sit in silence" observing the phases of the moon, I would be having satsang with the light of the moon residing inside me in the form of the inner Guru. I would be having satsang with my own Self.
I also understood that after receiving shaktipat from one's Guru, one's inner moon shines forth; everything becomes permeated with light and gratitude arises.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this gift! Shubh Gurupurnima!

Gurumayi's words of exquisite beauty and profound power shimmer within me like infinite moonbeams; my eyes overflow with tears of gratitude for her constant presence and love.
With the bright rays of the sun blazing upon me through my window this sunny Sunday afternoon, I read and read again. I am enveloped and nourished by the sheer immensity of Shri Guru's all-encompassing light— far, far greater than the moon, the sun, and all the celestial bodies of the entire firmament.
I offer heartfelt pranam again and again from within the deepest, silent spaces of my being to my peerless Gurumayi. Shubh Gurupurnima!

This morning I was pleased to read Gurumayi's guidance in the beautiful story of her shaktipat experience and her invitation to appreciate the many moons both within and without.
I have always been enraptured by the moon—by its growth from an almost invisible bow of light to its full effulgence and glory. What is that pull that I feel when I observe its beautiful light in the sky? Now I realize it's my Guru. We are connected each day, each night, by the silent, gentle pull of this moon.
Gurumayi is the constant light in my life.

Once again the Guru's grace has bestowed a wonderful gift in the form of this poem. I sat in silence smelling the herbs, watching the moons, and feeling Gurumayi's grace.

While reading this poem, my attention was drawn toward the line, "How will we welcome the rise of Gurupurnima this year?" As I started contemplating, I found my answer in the poem itself:  "This is your satsang with Gurupurnima."
Thank you, Gurumayi ji, for always bestowing grace upon us in the form of your teaching and guiding us in every celebration to be connected with the inner Self through nature.
Shubh Gurupurnima!
