Invocation to Shri Guru
This avahan, or invocation, heralds the celebration of Baba Muktananda’s birthday. Avahans are sung in India at the beginning of celebrations and religious ceremonies to invoke the grace of a chosen deity. On the Siddha Yoga path, we sing this avahan to invoke Shri Guru’s grace. By singing this invocation, and by reading and studying its words, we can reflect on Baba’s divine presence during his birthday month.
