Reading this verse set off a depth charge inside me. It took me back to the moment I received Shaktipat and experienced myself as the universe. The feeling—one that I could never forget—was one of unending delight and awe for every magnificent thing surrounding me. This verse invites me to return to that expansiveness of being. The eloquence of the words and the images bring delight to my heart.
 
Last night I recited the Shiva Mahimnah Stotram. As I did so, I felt glad to be walking the Siddha Yoga path, a path that takes me to limitless delight.
 
Thank you, Gurumayi, for showing me the way and for walking by my side.

When I chant Shri Shiva Mahimna Stotram, the beauty of verse 32 always fills me with delight. When I saw this verse on the Siddha Yoga path website under the heading of "Your Greatness is Unfathomable," I took the opportunity to study it.
 
I reflected on the meaning of the verse and chanted the Sanskrit words three times. Then I closed my eyes. I had the sensation that my mind was being stretched out toward infinity, toward the space beyond thought. I felt the vastness of Shiva, the vastness of the Self. Studying this verse is a wonderful way for me to prepare for Mahashivaratri!

Reading these divine words puts me in touch with something vast and eternal in myself. I understood that I don’t have to look anywhere but within my inner Self to reach the divine vision and see it reflected everywhere.
