The Life and Legacy of Gurumayi Chidvilasananda

One summer day I was walking through a corridor in Shree Muktananda Ashram when I saw Gurumayi. She was coming from the opposite direction, with a woman walking alongside her.

As we approached one another, I didn't just see Gurumayi; I felt her form expanding and her presence encompassing the whole space, sweeping over me as well. 

I stopped to let Gurumayi pass, and she stopped too, and patted my chest.  For a moment there was silence. Then Gurumayi introduced me to the woman who was with her and told me that it was her birthday. I wished the woman a happy birthday, and Gurumayi and she continued on their way.

As I resumed walking, I felt my heart fly open. I experienced oneness with everything around me.
