I had such a great experience when I was participating in the Love in Action
While chanting with Gurumayi, tears began to stream from my eyes as love overflowed within. As I heard Gurumayi’s voice vibrating inside me, I felt I was one with her.
Koti, koti dhanyavad
, Gurumayi ji. I feel blessed by this gift.
On Saturday, February 13th, I attended this beautiful live audio satsang
at the local Siddha Yoga Meditation Center.
This chant was, for me, a divine gift from Gurumayi to transform me and to bring me to my heart. Now, the words and melody of the namasankirtana
continue to sing within me. I feel changes in my perceptions of others. I’m more connected to my heart, less caught up in my mind. I experience that negative feelings and emotions are getting cleaned up.
Thank you so much, Gurumayi, for your grace, and for all your gifts we receive though the website. No words can express my gratitude. I feel so blessed to walk on the Siddha Yoga path!

I have been practicing putting love into action by choosing to move from troubling perceptions to uplifting ones. Sometimes I make this choice intentionally and sometimes it feels as though I am moved to do so. Today, I was moved.
I stopped in at the grocery for just a few items. “Uh oh. Bad idea,” I thought. Every aisle in the market was jammed with carts, strollers and shoppers. “Okay. Slow down,” I said to myself.
The checkout line stretched to the back of the store, barely moving. While caught up in the thought of that, I suddenly saw the scene with new eyes. “It’s a community gathering. The whole family is here!” In that moment I felt a divine friendliness for everyone in sight. There was nowhere I’d rather be than standing right here, relishing this lovely gathering. “Let me repeat the mantra,” I thought. “So many people will receive the good energy!”
Even now, I remain filled with happiness, remembering this experience of the love that naturally exists between all beings.
As soon as we began to chant, I felt negativities leaving me, replaced by positive feelings generating within.
Thank you so much, Gurumayi, for your blessings and for sharing your love with us. Truly, I can feel Love in Action

Thank you for this Love in Action
audio stream! During the meditation, as I participated at home, I felt as if Gurumayi were holding my head in her hands. In response, my body elongated as I took in my Guru's love. I did not think about being either worthy or unworthy as I often had in the past. Instead, I had the realization that the Guru's love embraces everyone equally and always!
I can hardly believe I could be in my living room with my whole family and be with Gurumayi in this amazing satsang
. Afterwards we found ourselves more focused and compassionate than usual, and a heartfelt gentleness pervades our home. There are no words to describe how much gratitude my heart holds for this incredible gift of hearing Gurumayi’s loving and sweet voice.
We love you, Gurumayi!
The bliss of my Sadguru's laughter never fails to uplift! When my wife and I began listening to the satsang
, our six-year-old daughter was a little reluctant but stayed in the room with us. As the satsang
progressed, she became more and more animated, and at the end she announced that the drawing she was creating was for Gurumayi.
We all relished every moment of this gift of darshan.
What a Valentine's Day gift to us all. Our thank you is truly from the heart.
My husband and I were able to participate in the Love in Action
audio stream together while our little ones played with blocks and trucks. They were chanting while playing and stopped to dance to the chant every once in a while. From home, it was so easeful to be present with every part of the satsang
and with Gurumayi's teachings.
As a part of the baby showers for both of our children as well as those for the children of our closest friends, we chanted Shri Krishna Nila Krishna
. Chanting it in the satsang
, I felt as if I were with my dear friends and their children.
The Universal Hall is truly a great blessing.

The Love in Action
webcast felt like a spectacular explosion of love! During the sweet, delicious Shri Krishna Nila Krishna
chant, I had the thought that Shri Krishna was with me as I chanted to him. I was ecstatic, offering him my love and revelling in his, all the while knowing that there is only one love.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this wonderful Valentine’s Day gift.
Yesterday I participated in the “Love in Action” live stream audio satsang
at my home. I experienced Shri Gurumayi’s teachings entering my heart. Today my daughter came and sat near my chair as I participated again in the satsang.
She was captivated by the sound of the chanting, and she started chanting some words from the chant. The same thing happened again this evening when I participated in the satsang
once more. My daughter also loves the Love in Action Gallery.
My wife and I are very grateful to Gurumayi for the photos and for this satsang
that so inspires my daughter. The ocean of supreme love flows from Shree Muktananda Ashram to our home and our hearts. I experience that today is the day of love and tomorrow is also a day of love. I intend to bathe in divine love by participating in this satsang
again and again.
The teachings I heard in this satsang
have helped me to remain aware of every moment in the office and at home. I have learned that I can touch a peaceful and open feeling even if I have a negative thought. I intend to hold on to that experience throughout this month.
The chanting during Love in Action
coated my heart in sweetness. And Gurumayi's laughter filled me with great joy. What particularly touched me were the teachings about how to implement "love in action" in our own lives.
So many pearls of wisdom and so many blessings in these shared satsangs
in the Universal Hall of love! I am so grateful, and feel so connected through participating in these beautiful events.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for such a beautiful satsang.

I am very grateful for this gift in honor of Valentine's Day! When my five-and-a-half-year-old daughter heard the chant, she suddenly ran off, saying that she needed to dress well to be able to pray! When she came back into the room, she looked shimmering in a long, pearly-blue gown adorned with glittering silvery and golden ornaments, crown and all. It was beautiful to see her dance, and move so steadfastly into her own joy.
Toward the end of the chant, we were both swirling in circles, literally! We joyfully shared this exquisite moment, bathed by soft golden candlelight in our own home—and by the voices and melody of the chant in the Universal Hall, all blessed by the presence of our beloved Shri Gurumayi. Just divine!
Merci, merci, merci! Que viva el amor!
I particularly resonated with Gurumayi's teachings in the satsang
. They helped me see a longstanding difficulty in my sadhana
in a new light, so that I could release my stance—a major breakthrough for me.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this love-filled satsang
I experienced incomparable joy as I participated in Love in Action,
via live audio stream. The combination of the wonderful host, my experience of the love and presence of everyone around the world, the beautiful chanting, and our dear Gurumayi’s laughter and teachings made me feel so blessed.
I have treasured every single audio stream satsang
that Gurumayi has given us. And yet, I still feel in awe at the realization that Gurumayi loves us so much that she wants us all to be part of the uplifting experience of participating with her in these satsangs
originating in Shree Muktananda Ashram.
Later, as I sat drinking tea, I looked out the window and saw a solitary heart-shaped leaf still clinging to a branch and blowing wildly in the very cold New England winter wind. It seemed to embody the feeling that was still with me from the morning satsang
: that I can be loving in all circumstances and even through all kinds of challenges.
For that insight, and for so many other life-changing teachings, I am eternally grateful. Thank you, Gurumayi. I love you.
This was my first experience of participating personally in a satsang
via live audio stream. It felt to me as if Gurumayi ji and all the musicians were chanting through my body, as if the whole satsang
were happening inside me. I felt lots of energy in my head; it seemed to have no limit, and to expand outward completely. The experience made me speechless!
I thank my beloved Gurumayi ji for her great love.
I am deeply moved by the divine power of connecting with each other in the Universal Hall. It feels to me as if every time we unite in this way around the world, we are creating new pathways of love.
After the satsang
concluded, I made myself a cup of coffee. Suddenly, I was overcome by a deep love for myself. I wrapped my arms around myself and said, "I love you!" As tears streamed down my face, I found myself, very naturally, forgiving all the people in my life by whom I have felt hurt or disappointed. I experienced this natural act of forgiveness as a divine partnership between my mind and heart—forgiveness being the pathway to anchoring my heart in supreme love. So simple, profound, and perfect.
I feel extraordinarily blessed by this gift of Gurumayi’s grace and unwavering love.

Before I settled down to participate in the Love in Action
live audio-stream satsang,
I went outside to feed the chickadees. All through the satsang
, I could see them flying back and forth to the bird feeder. Those darling, tiny creatures were so sweet and symbolize for me how we are all connected through love. Today I am especially grateful for their playfulness, joy, and surprising strength—because it's extremely
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this satsang
on "love in action."

While my husband, our one-year-old baby, and I were chanting during the satsang
, a soft drizzle began to fall. It was so beautiful, so perfect: nature making herself present with her own "love in action." It made me feel that our Guru´s grace is present everywhere!
It was also the sweetest reminder that all I need to do in order to connect with love is to take a look at nature and there it is—the reminder that supreme love is everywhere.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for such a beautiful Valentine´s Day gift. Thank you for reminding me of your teachings on how to create and strengthen the pathways that connect me to the Heart.
It was wonderful to be in the Universal Hall. I love how that image joins us all together so tangibly.
Gurumayi's words about "love in action" resonated with me, as does the February emphasis on the word move
from Gurumayi's Message. Gurumayi's teachings about acting with love are an important reminder for me that the Siddha Yoga practices are not just personal or interior ones, but also manifest outwardly when I share my kindness and love.
