Siddha Yoga Audio Satsang
in Celebration of Baba Muktananda’s Birthday

May 1 – 31, 2019

April 17, 2019

Dear readers,

Warm greetings from Shree Muktananda Ashram!

This year Siddha Yogis and new seekers are engaging with Gurumayi’s Message for 2019 in so many new and meaningful ways: for example, through multiple participations in Sweet Surprise, weekly lessons from the Workbook on Gurumayi’s Message, and monthly Siddha Yoga Meditation Sessions online. We are so fortunate!

I am happy to inform you of another significant and joyful event that will support you to further your study and experience of Gurumayi’s Message. That is the Siddha Yoga Audio Satsang in Celebration of Baba Muktananda’s Birthday.

The title Gurumayi has given for this audio satsang is

The Mind

This satsang will be an opportunity to build on the knowledge you have gained this year about the mind, a central theme from Gurumayi’s Message talk that she imparted in Sweet Surprise 2019. In this satsang, you will receive and be guided in the contemplation of Baba’s and Gurumayi’s teachings on the true nature of the mind and the importance of right understanding. It will include a recording of a powerful talk Baba gave on the mind. Additionally, participants can delight in a selection of rarely seen images of Baba, preserved by Shakti Punja, the Siddha Yoga archives. You will for sure want to watch the screen during this audio satsang!

In addition to celebrating Baba’s birthday, the satsang will also celebrate the 50th anniversary, the golden anniversary, of Baba Muktananda writing his spiritual autobiography, Play of Consciousness. In this timeless account, Baba invites us to walk with him as he describes in detail the events of his own spiritual journey: the awakening of Kundalini through his Guru’s grace, his profound experiences in meditation, and the nature of his final attainment. Unveiling the most sacred mysteries of meditation and yoga, Play of Consciousness is an invaluable text for all who walk the Siddha Yoga path and historically significant for all seekers of the Truth.

Throughout the entire month of May, the Siddha Yoga Audio Satsang in Celebration of Baba Muktananda’s Birthday will be held in Siddha Yoga Ashrams and meditation centers around the world, as well as via audio webcast on the Siddha Yoga path website. I warmly invite you to register for this joyous event.
