Birthday Bliss 2021

Birthday Wish

Birthday Bliss, the month of Gurumayi’s Birthday, has arrived. At Shree Muktananda Ashram, nature is celebrating. Trees are wearing their full cloak of fresh green leaves; flowers adorn shrubs and tiny plants. And, as you will see in the images above, dandelions are sprouting all across the Ashram’s sacred grounds.

It is Gurumayi’s wish that each day of Birthday Bliss, everyone easily experience bliss. So that you may have a sweet entry, a doorway, into this experience, Gurumayi is inviting you to make a wish on these dandelions.

May everyone experience Birthday Bliss!

I’m having a most blissful Birthday Bliss month. My wish is to experience the ubiquitous love of the Self in every moment—to know love, be love, and always act from love.

I am deeply grateful for Gurumayi’s wish for us during Birthday Bliss, and I receive her wish and invitation with great love and humility.

My first wish on Gurumayi’s Birthday is that all the people of India may experience the bliss of healing and recovery from COVID-19 and any other illness. My second wish is that we all may find our way to implement vandanyata in in our professions and vocations, choosing the spirit of contribution over competition. Third, I wish that we may all find the courage, strength, and compassion to see and respect the divinity within those who appear to be different from us and to move beyond the snares of worldly illusion to become better human beings. And finally, I wish that the leaders of the world be so touched by the virtue of vandanyata that the entire world may be transformed into a place where experiencing bliss, peace, compassion, and love becomes a natural matter of fact.

I am very grateful to have had the good fortune of meeting Gurumayi and spending time in her Ashram. I wish that everyone would have access to the Guru’s wisdom, and that they would also value and take care of our beautiful, bountiful planet. I also wish that everyone will use their allotted time on earth positively, creatively, and productively.

As a young girl many years ago, I yearned to know God. Where was God? Who was God? Would I ever experience God? That was my most intimate wish.

I looked in many places. And then one day, Gurumayi came into my life, not in any form I was expecting, but in the most illuminating experience of my heart. There she was, the divine presence who had been within me all those years. Gurumayi is the wish, and the revelation, always.

I wish that I may always stay connected, heart to heart, with my Guru so that my will can be strong and sweet at the same time, and my actions guided by good feelings and the virtues.

When I walk in the world and dwell in my heart, an easeful, warm, radiating bliss of love naturally fills my whole being with delight. My wish is that I may continually return to this inexhaustable font of nectar and share it with all I encounter. Then I become Gurumayi's love in my part of the world!

I am so grateful to Gurumayi for her wish that “everyone easily experience bliss” during this month of Birthday Bliss. As I looked at the photos of dandelions in Shree Muktananda Ashram, I made my intention to experience bliss. I kept repeating to myself: I will experience bliss. I have the strength to choose bliss. I will allow my vision to be expanded with bliss.

As I did so, I visualized the seeds of my wishes being blown by the wind and finding the perfect place to land. I felt my intentions taking root and becoming strong, so that this wish to experience bliss will keep growing in the months and year ahead.

Like the seeds of the dandelion, may the seeds of the Guru's unbounded grace spread abundantly to every part of our world. May those seeds take root, grow, and regenerate—spreading the Guru's grace to all beings and to the earth itself.  
For the great joy it would bring to my heart, may I play a role in that spreading and sowing.

My wish: may the love in our hearts e-x-p-a-n-d!

Having received Gurumayi’s wish that we experience daily bliss during Birthday Bliss month, I have been reading the commentaries on the virtues with that in mind. I saw that each day I can learn about the virtue of that day, and make a wish for that virtue to infuse my thinking. Then, with that wish in mind, I saw that, according to the Upanishadic teaching in the first image, that wish will permeate my will and impel my actions accordingly. This practice is helping me with my overall goal to have my actions come from my center of pure “I” awareness. Then I do experience the bliss of oneness with the Divine.

My wish is to know my own inner Self and to experience the bliss of my inner Self. May I maintain the self-effort and cherish my Guru's grace that will, together, help me attain that goal.

Maryland, United States

My wish is one I am borrowing from Baba—for this world to be filled with saints. I see that for this to come true, it must start with me. So I am committing myself to cultivating the consistent awareness that God, Guru, and the great Self are alive within me. By practicing mantra japa throughout the day, I feel I can nurture my intention and remember that I carry the Guru’s grace with me wherever I go.
May we all experience the blazing light of the Divine within.

I wish to forever experience pure love and express radiant gratitude for my beloved Gurumayi, for the sacred path of Siddha Yoga, for the yearning for liberation, and for each moment of the astonishing miracle of human life on this magnificent planet.

Colorado, United States

My wish is to be ever grateful for the blessing to know the Guru, to be able to access her words on the Siddha Yoga path website, and to feel her protection, grace, and abundant love in my life. I would like my life to reflect the wisdom and instruction I have received from the Guru on how to live a dharmic life and attain liberation.
