On the Siddha Yoga path, the month of October is dedicated to remembering and honoring Baba Muktananda, his remarkable life, and his legacy. It was during this month that Baba’s life culminated with mahasamadhi—the great merging with supreme Consciousness.
From an early age, Baba was moved by a deep yearning to know God. He dedicated himself to sadhana, spiritual practice, seeking to attain union with the divinity that exists in all hearts. Through the purity of his self-effort and the grace of his spiritual Master, Bhagavan Nityananda, Baba became a Siddha Yoga Guru, with the power to awaken others through the gift of shaktipat initiation.
