When I came across this amazingly touching bhajan on the Siddha Yoga Path website, the feeling it gave me was one of great love and tenderness—along with a sense of perfection.
Gurumayi always amazes me with the power of her love, and her ability to keep me engaged with the Truth.

This has been a favorite bhajan
of mine since my childhood. It evokes the feeling of longing in me—the longing for the Sadguru.
I’ve contemplated the words many times. Verse 4 is especially meaningful for me: “O Lord, you are the Master and I am your servant.” When I read this verse, I experience the space of humility, studentship, and unconditional love. I experience a great longing for the Guru, who is everywhere.
Thinking of myself as a servant gives me inner strength. I am a school teacher, so seeing myself as a servant of the Guru makes me better able to love and serve my students.
Thank you, Gurumayi, Baba ji, and Bade Baba ji.

Many years ago, in the midst of challenges I was experiencing at work, I used to listen to the tapes of various bhajans
during long drives in my car.
Though I did not know the meaning of the words, I found one particular bhajan
to be captivating. I used to listen to it over and over, and a feeling of love and devotion for the Lord arose in me whenever I heard it. What a wonderful surprise, after so many years, to find a translation of this bhajan
on the Siddha Yoga path website!
Finding the bhajan
here—filled with a student's devotion to his Guru—is like meeting an old friend. As I reflect on that earlier challenging period in my life, I see how Gurumayi's grace supported me and carried me through it.

The amazing poem evokes for me a strong feeling of connection to Gurumayi. May I learn to be the wick in my Guru’s lamp and experience such devotion constantly.
