When I see this artwork, I feel Gurumayi is showering love like sweet mangoes. I have firm trust in her love, and I feel so much love in nature all around me.

As I read the teachings behind each mango, the gratitude I feel is immense.  Choosing and reading the teachings, I become tuned to the present moment. And I find myself blissfully connected to Gurumayi. I feel she is holding my hand and guiding me by showering each moment with precious teachings.

There is so much love here in the month of Birthday Bliss. And after picking many mangoes, I feel my heart opening up so wide it merges with the universal Heart.
 
I wish to live in this love my whole life.

I feel that each image in this garden of mangoes speaks to me personally and gives me a teaching that suits my life circumstances with great care and love. As I experience this, I feel I’m being guided moment by moment. I sense the Guru’s affection for me and complete peace in my heart.

What a delightful surprise to come to the fresh, new June website this morning and find myself in Birthday Bliss in the courtyard of Gurudev Siddha Peeth! Such delight just to survey the courtyard and the lovely, shining, delicious mangoes. Such abundance! 
 
As I clicked on each cluster of mangoes and found the treasure held inside, my heart surged with ever new bliss. So many of my favorite verses from Shri Guru Gita! And the beautiful songs! 
 
This path fills my heart, especially when I'm feeling deprived in any way. When I'm missing the physical form of my Guru, there I am, in the courtyard of Gurudev Siddha Peeth, enjoying the mangoes of love. I receive reminder after reminder of what lives so fully inside of me and everywhere around me. I'm so grateful!
 
I wish you the happiest birthday and the blessings of the universe, beloved Gurumayi.

When I read the meaning of the bhajan "Avadali Gurumayi," it gave me a great feeling of conviction that by repeating God’s name and remembering him always, and with the grace of all the Siddhas, we can “cross over the ocean of worldliness.”
 
Thank you so much, Gurumayi, for this beautiful bhajan, which helps me understand the profound meaning of devotion to the Guru.

After I read the experience described under “Ask the moon your question,” I remembered an incident that took place when I was a child and living in Gurudev Siddha Peeth with my parents. It taught me how Gurumayi always listens to you if you pray from the heart. 
 
As a child, I really loved eating mangoes—and I still do. One night, it was already 9:30 p.m. and I wanted to eat a mango. My mother tried hard to make me understand that this was impossible, but that we could eat mangoes the next day. I cried and cried, and prayed that I wanted to eat mangoes, and wouldn’t sleep.
 
Suddenly, there was a knock on our door! And there stood a sevite with a whole basket full of mangoes for me, saying, “These mangoes are for your daughter from Gurumayi.”
 
I am grateful for this opportunity to “pick a Birthday Bliss mango” as it reminds me of my earlier mango experience and gave me a beautiful way of reconnecting to my heart.

The picture of mangoes is so beautiful and full of joy! When I went to “pick a Birthday Bliss mango,” I immediately clicked on the cluster of mangoes that showed me "Gurumayi loves me so much." My heart was filled with happiness!
 
When I started reading about the Siddha Yogi’s experience of love for their son, I was reminded of how the Guru's unconditional love transforms my life too.

Just this morning, when I reached Gurudev Siddha Peeth as a visiting sevite, I saw that Guru Chowk is really filled with an abundance of mangoes. After the morning svadhyaya, I randomly touched one mango, viewing it as a symbol of blessings from nature.
 
Then, when I opened to this posting on the Siddha Yoga path website, I found the mango that appeared at the same place that I had just touched in real life. And when I clicked on that mango, it contained a teaching which I needed!
 
Happy Birthday Bliss!
