Participating in this meditation session was a transforming experience for me. During meditation, I sensed gentle ripples from a sea of water reflecting shimmering, golden light. I experienced oneness with that sea, with that golden light.
And now I experience a deep inner peace that goes forth touching everything in my path.

I am so grateful for the beautifully potent and stilling dharana in this meditation session.
My being expanded tangibly in great space and pure stillness. I felt the grace of being more than myself.

The dharana in this meditation was exquisite! It led me into a meditation that was truly satsang—a tangible experience of peace arising from within me.
So often I hold the idea of peace, of joy, of love, keeping them at a distance from which I can talk about them and seemingly see them. Yet this meditation session led me to the vantage point of peace within, from which there was nothing else to see or talk about, where peace is the experience of oneness with all that is!
From this experience I have a new confidence that the blessings of peace I send out to the world have a real and lasting impact.

What a profound experience these sessions have been for me! With each one, I have connected with the depth of Truth within me, supported by the simple, yet revelatory, guidance before meditation. My meditation practice has developed beyond what I could have imagined. I now have an incredible array of tools to lead me to the experience of satsang within—each one different and infused by the grace of the Guru.
I am experiencing a deepening confidence and stability in the awareness that the inner and the outer are one.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for the constant stream of gifts that the Siddha Yoga path website offers to me and so many others.
