It was through my Guru's grace in 1991 that I truly embraced and experienced God's love through the most exquisite experience of shaktipat
initiation at my first Siddha Yoga satsang
at the local center. My heart cracked open and love poured out like molten lava. For the first time I embraced love in its purest form. I could feel this love flowing out through my body, reaching everyone in the room and beyond. Tears of joy were streaming down my face.
My Guru, Gurumayi, had given me the experience of God! And that experience was indeed that "God is one, and he is of the form of love."

Bade Baba is my guiding light, and with every step I take, I feel his divine love removing all my doubts and insecurities. I am immensely grateful for the teachings and love I am continuously receiving. This divine love spreads through to my surroundings, and I receive it back from trees, flowers, the sky, and all the beauty in nature.
I love Gurumayi with so much gratitude, and I know this will last forever.

Thank you, Gurumayi.

I read this teaching, closed my eyes, and suddenly spontaneous love for all started emerging from my heart. I started remembering the faces of all the dear ones in my life, and I experienced that all of them are filled with God's love. This divine awareness was hidden in my heart until I read this teaching from Bade Baba.

I received shaktipat diksha
not long after my first child was born. I vividly remember sitting on the floor in the room where she was sleeping and going into meditation for the first time. I remember traveling through my thoughts, as if I were a golden pilgrim, watching them while resisting their pull, with a kind of motherly amusement. Without the nourishment of my engagement they stopped, and I entered a new, but deeply familiar terrain.
Here, the very air was love. I came across beautiful beings who were chanting the mantra Om Namah Shivaya
. This sound was so exquisite that I stayed here, listening, in this world of love, allowing the sounds to unfold and further unfold my heart. I knew without question that I was made of this love, as was everything I could possibly perceive.
I still know this. I am grateful beyond words to you, Gurumayi.
a Siddha Yogi from Adelaide, Australia
Twenty-two years ago during my first Shaktipat Intensive with Gurumayi, I had a direct experience of Bade Baba's teaching, “God is One, and he is of the form of Love.” Since then, this essential understanding has unfolded in my daily life and in those times when I can see God as love emanating from all living beings, trees, plants, animals, birds, oceans, and skies.
Thank you, Gurumayi! How blessed I am to have found Bhagavan Nityananda and his teachings!

With Bade Baba's blessings, I experience God’s love as lava flowing—it is sweetly warm and scintillating.

When I received shaktipat diksha,
I had the experience of actually living in God's love; I realized that the universe is made up of love.
I am so happy and grateful to be able to experience the great teachings of Bhagavan Nityananda. Thank you, Gurumayi, for all you do.

After viewing "Bhagavan Nityananda's Teachings," I sat for meditation. I imagined myself as one with Bade Baba, seeing my hands and feet as his. I visualized our oneness shining brightly as the radiant Self, sending out love to all.
Soon, I experienced a scintillating rainbow of light emerging from this image of our oneness, and wrapping itself around me in a blanket of love and joy.

The entire website feels infused with Bade Baba’s beautiful, penetrating, transforming teachings. Each image, each quotation, each note of music embodies his grace and evokes deep longing and gratitude in me.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for sharing this love with us.
