When I read Gurumayi's beautiful poetry, I agreed intellectually, but I couldn't figure out exactly how
Bhagavan Nityananda could be all-pervading in nature.
These last days, Europe has been plagued with a wave of heat and there had not been a drop of rain. Eventually, yesterday evening we had thunder and flashes of lightning carrying on all evening and all night.
When a flash of thunder lit my room like daylight, I then understood Gurumayi's poem. I had had an argument with my parents and became aware of the essence of our problem and how to sort it out. I felt that Bade Baba, in the form of thunder and lightning, had shown me a previously hidden and crucial element of our relationship.
Thank you, Bade Baba, for watching over me. And thank you, Gurumayi , for showing me the way.

I made my first visit to Shree Muktananda Ashram thirty years ago during the month of August, which I came to think of as Bade Baba’s month. From the first time I stepped into Bade Baba’s Temple, the palpable shakti
took the shape of unconditional love and guided me with its powerful loving force from ordinary existence to the most profound states of consciousness.
During these thirty years, Bhagavan Nityananda and the precious Temple that Gurumayi has tended with her own infinite love and devotion have remained alive in my heart and provided me with an inner space of profound refuge. Indeed, when I go to my heart and “roam,” I find the Bhagavan Nityananda Temple there and a stream of profound experiences that I look forward to when I meditate.
Thank you, Bhagavan Nityananda, for your generous darshan
. Thank you for teaching me how to make my world into a temple.

This beautiful poem confirms for me something that I experienced long ago, watching Gurumayi pranam
before the murti
of Bhagavan Nityananda. She models for me how to worship. And in these beautiful words, she shows me how to see the divine Lord in all beings.
Thank you, Gurumayi.

Reading this sublime poem, I feel contentment and relief when I am reminded that nature endures, as it is not created by humans. I realized that, in the same way, Bade Baba's compassion is constant, beyond the human play, as it is coming from God.
I experience that A Temple Without Form
is a cascade of Gurumayi’s and Bade Baba's blessings for all beings on this earth and for the entire universe.
Thank you, beloved Gurumayi, for the gift of such a beautiful poem.

I am grateful for these wonderful words from Gurumayi that describe Bade Baba’s presence in nature and reveal such beauty and value in everything!
I felt chills run through my body as I read this. I resonated with Bade Baba’s words:
The heart is the hub of all sacred places. Go there and roam.
I understood that nature is a manifestation of this most sacred place. This is what I experience when I look at the natural world through "the eye of the heart."
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your teachings and constant reminders of the Truth. We are blessed indeed by your grace!

Reading this poem, I am so happy. I love that I can experience Gurumayi's darshan
and her smile through this poem. And I experience her smile through the books I read, through the people I meet, and even in my own face in the mirror.

I am so moved by this amazing poem by Gurumayi.
The phrase that always touches my heart is:
"Despite human ignorance, Nature endures."
It touches me at the core of my being, reminding me that humans can connect with nature and with God, and that we can realize who we truly are.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your words, your teachings, and your love.

This morning I read this beautiful poem and then decided to go sit outside and see Bade Baba in nature, as Gurumayi describes. I walked out to my patio, and manifesting before me was a beautiful, full, vibrant rainbow. As I gazed in amazement, I was reminded of what a blessed life I have been given because of the blessings of my Guru.

My heart expands so much when I read the Guru's words! I remember that while I’m in the world, love surrounds me. I remember that while I’m in the world, nature is here for me. I remember that I can have Bhagavan Nityananda's darshan
in the everyday things that surround me. I remember.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for helping me remember.
