Listening to this meditation session over and over led me to the realization that Gurumayi’s presence, protection, and guidance are always with me. The teacher’s compassion, gentleness, and clarity made me feel enveloped in love. I now invest time every day to read and put into practice the Guru’s teachings.

This meditation session was marvelous. When I closed my eyes, I saw a big and beautiful purple lotus flower in the crown of my head, and I felt peace and happiness. For me, the Guru's teachings are pure light.

I love this session so much. Since participating in it, at night I am able to see and hear every cell in my body as light ringing out with the sound Om. Even during the day, if I look for it, I again am able to perceive this Consciousness scintillating everywhere.

I have an action plan to support me in sustaining this experience--frequent and loving visits to the Siddha Yoga path website to connect to the nectar of the Guru's grace and teachings.

Following the instructions in this Meditation Session, I felt my physical tensions being dissolved, releasing an incredible sweetness and tenderness within my whole being. My mind was silent, both savoring and witnessing this nectar of softness. I experienced my being as a deep lake of consciousness and peace. It was as if a fine rain of divine love was pouring delicately within me.
 
It was for me a tangible experience of Gurumayi’s Message for this year.
 
Merci de tout mon coeur, Gurumayi – thank you with all my heart!
