December 20, 2022
As we celebrate the joys of the season in these culminating days of 2022, I believe I speak for us all when I say that a familiar feeling is arising in our minds and hearts—an ardent wish to receive Gurumayi Chidvilasananda’s Message for the year 2023.
Gurumayi’s Message and the setting in which she imparts it are called Sweet Surprise. And yes—the “sweet surprise” for all of us is that on New Year’s Day, we will be receiving Gurumayi’s Message in the Siddha Yoga Universal Hall.
This year’s Sweet Surprise is unique in that you have the opportunity to participate at whatever time suits you. It will be available on the Siddha Yoga path website beginning at 12:00 a.m. New York (USA) time on January 1, 2023.
The joy of anticipating Gurumayi’s Message and participating in Sweet Surprise brings a delightful feeling of light and excitement to my heart. Already, I can feel Gurumayi’s grace showering down on me. Gurumayi’s unconditional love fills my heart, my spirit, and my soul. I feel like a child eagerly awaiting the gift of Gurumayi’s blessings.

Words cannot express my gratitude to Gurumayi for the blessings of 2022 and the coming blessings of 2023. The Siddha Yoga path is the very holiest part of my life. I am so happy to know that this year we can participate in Sweet Surprise more than once!
