Kabir’s poem filled my heart with astonishment and delight. I was transported to the realm of spring forests and caught a wisp of the “scent of So’ham
.” With each reading, the gentle breeze of grace transported me anew to a world of intoxicating bliss!
Thank you, Gurumayi, for sharing so many doorways to the subtle realms. I am ever grateful for your generosity and grace.

What a beautiful image of hamsa
as swan in the poem by Saint Kabir. As I read the poem, I felt myself to be a swan flying to the nectarean kingdom of Bhagavan Nityananda.

I am feeling so intoxicated after reading through the words again and again. Like the bee intoxicated by the "scent of So’ham
,” I, too, feel intoxicated by the beauty of this song by Kabir!
Today I had many opportunities to visit the Siddha Yoga path website, first participating in the Meditation Session, then reading and contemplating Gurumayi's teachings. As my exploration of the website continued, at one point I was drawn to an exquisite, captivating picture of a crystal swan. Hamsa!
Later, after a long japa
walk during which I practiced the hamsa
I returned to the treasure trove of the website. When the page loaded, I thought surely I'd left the browser open from earlier, as the swan was still there. So I opened a new browser and could barely believe my eyes. The very same post I’d found, Hamsa Kaho
, was now on the home page! The crystal swan glittered softly, as if to say to me, "See? I am always with you!"
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your ever-present, delightful grace in the form of synchronicity! It clearly reminds me that, Yes! You are always here.

For me, reading this poem is like awakening from a challenging dream on a spring morning with the song of birds, the soft morning light, and all of life waiting in great anticipation to express itself fully as the sun rises in the sky. It is like walking through the gardens of Gurudev Siddha Peeth ensconced in the grace-filled atmosphere, while hearing the gentle rise and fall of my breath, the mantra repeating by its own volition.

This poem by Poet-Saint Kabir attunes me to Gurumayi’s Message for 2019.
The line “Rise, rise up this thread, O Swan! This is the Sadguru’s teaching,” wakes me up to study Shri Gurumayi`s Message by participating in Meditation Sessions and all the other means offered on the Siddha Yoga path website.
I feel such blessing and calmness when I listen to the So’ham
mantra in my breath during meditation.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your teachings and loving guidance.
Kabir’s poem is divine, and yet so simple.
In it there is my truth.
This is what my soul longs for, this is all I want: to go back to the source and finally find peace.
What joy, what bliss arose within me reading Kabir's poetic invitation to follow the thread of the Guru's teachings back to the source of So'ham
within my own being! What greater gift is there? My heart is full of thanks.
