I have recently come to this spiritual path, and the love I feel is indescribable. I feel I am being given great strength to overcome every obstacle. Although life can be difficult, my approach towards it is different now and everything is much brighter.

Thank you so much, Gurumayi. I am grateful that you are with me; I feel your presence.

The moment I received the glorious blessing of Gurumayi’s darshan via this picture, I felt white waves of energy moving upwards through my body. And I knew, as Gurumayi says here, that this was “the movement of shakti in the Heart.”

When I feel that Gurumayi is with me, I feel joyful. And when I feel my heart open, I think I am really in a pool of joy!

No rain has fallen here for months, and just as I was opening the Siddha Yoga path website and praying for blessings, I heard the pattering of a few precious raindrops. For me it was a delightful confirmation of my Guru’s presence. And, this photo of Gurumayi with the umbrella popped up at that exact moment! 

With even the most subtle experience of darshan, my heart experiences the sweet satsang of Gurumayi’s presence, and tears wet my face. I know my Guru has not forgotten me, and I am so grateful for her being and love.

Now, as I finish this writing, a downpour begins, showering blessings upon us all!
Thank you, most compassionate Gurumayi, for being here with us, and sharing your delightful play!

I am so grateful for the steady wisdom and love of Gurumayi. As I received Gurumayi’s darshan through this passage, I felt a sense of peace and patience flow through my mind and heart. I began to experience a deeper feeling of my own self-worth. I began to trust that things were going to be OK. These words remind me that the Guru is always ready to share her grace and love.

Two days ago, I took a walk on the grounds of Gurudev Siddha Peeth and then sat on a bench overlooking the beautiful garden. The moment I closed my eyes, I imagined that Gurumayi was coming towards me, inviting me to walk with her. With enthusiasm, I accompanied her in my mind’s eye.
As we walked, I could not stop sharing with her about all the love that she has given me and how happy I am to be in Gurudev Siddha Peeth. I could feel my whole body filled with excitement and, at the same time, I experienced a profound calmness within me.
As we paused, suddenly I felt like I was expressing my love to Gurumayi just like a puppy. I opened my eyes in laughter as I thought, "A puppy!? What a wonderful way of expressing unconditional love!"
Today, I look at the picture of Gurumayi with the dog, [number 12 in this series], and tears of recognition come to my eyes.
Thank you, Gurumayi!

Today my spirit has been uplifted by having Shri Gurumayi's darshan in the form of these pictures and words. Suddenly, I am joyful.
Thank you, Gurumayi, a thousand times for your love. I am so filled with gratitude that my heart is overflowing.

Contemplating these teachings from Gurumayi is an amazing gift, which opens my subtle attention amidst my daily schedule and household routines.
It's so splendid to be touched in my heart in this way, feeling the radiance of the Heart shimmer in me.

My mother taught me to pray when I was a very young child. That is the greatest gift she could have given me. For me, prayer is the most important thing to do in order to create a good day. And now, Gurumayi affirms the power of this gift in her teaching, "Prayer is a magnet that draws the presence of God."
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this reminder of the importance of praying for my family, friends, the world, and myself.
