Last night, while I was cooking dinner, I had a few free minutes. So, inspired by the Valentine’s heart, I read a passage from one of Gurumayi’s books where she explains that true knowledge can only be acquired through the heart. I copied the passage down to take it to heart for myself. The next morning when I stood in front of my puja
, waves of love began pouring through my being. I stood for a long time immersed in light and devotion.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for the incredible way that your words give me the experience I am longing for!
“Take time. Take it easy. It will be all right.” When I clicked on this heart, I felt instantly that it was for me.
At the time, there were many things going on in my mind. I was unable to make a decision and wanted to resolve things quickly. So when I read this, I knew that by applying this teaching I could be positive, take time, and trust that things will go in the right direction.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this insight. It helped me. It reminded me that it’s good to take my time and not always to decide things so quickly. In the process of taking time many things unveil very clearly—understandings which, if rushed, I never would have thought of.
Every year our plum tree comes into bloom on and around my wife's birthday in February. This year, in addition to thinking about the synchronicity of the plum tree blooming on her birthday, I remembered Gurumayi's words: "Have you thanked a tree for its generosity?" I thanked the tree.
Gurumayi continues to guide me to see the divine majesty of what I normally look at day to day. She shows me the inherent divinity in the most routine sights, sounds, and moments.
Thank you, Gurumayi, with all my heart.
Just before bedtime, I visited the Siddha Yoga path website and found Love in Action
. I felt Gurumayi’s joy and presence permeating each teaching. I have had the inner experience that Gurumayi is very much with me every day, every moment.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this precious gift.
I learned about Love in Action
from my brother who lives in the United States. I am absolutely relishing the experience of receiving Gurumayi’s divine teachings while clicking the sweet little hearts.
As soon as I read these teachings, I felt Gurumayi’s love pulsating in my heart, and I bathed in that love.
Then I sat for meditation, and for the first time I experienced a vast ocean in my heart and knew that I was drinking nectar from that ocean of love. This was the clear focus for my meditation practice today.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for everything you give.
When I clicked one of the hearts, it said: jnanam annam,
“Knowledge is Food.” I was reading and contemplating this sutra
just yesterday, and I was practicing the sutra
in my meditation. Seeing it here, I am thrilled with this synchronicity.
WOW! As my husband and I clicked on every heart, we looked at each other in pure delight. Each message is incredibly profound and practical. We both are deeply grateful for this amazing Valentine!

As I absorb myself in the pulsating hearts, I realize my breath is naturally in synch with them. I will be noting each teaching in my journal to savor again and again, and write my insights.
I'm so delighted to be able to access the Siddha Yoga path website throughout the day. It’s my precious secret garden that I visit often!!
Such a sweet, sweet Valentine's Day gift!
Thank you, Gurumayi, for giving us teachings in such perfect ways.

This morning, before leaving home, I opened this Valentine’s Day gift and clicked on the hearts. I was delighted to find that they were translated into French.
This afternoon, I came back to this beautiful gift from Gurumayi and began opening each little heart. I noticed that as one heart closed, and before the next opened, the bigger heart was expanding, and my breath and my own heart expanded with it. Remembering Gurumayi's Message for 2017, I breathed more deeply.
Thank you so much, dear Gurumayi. Happy Valentine's Day!
Last night I had just talked with my cousin whom I love so much. A long time had gone by since we last spoke. Then, I thought of visiting the Siddha Yoga path website to see if I’d be finding something new. And I found Love in Action
from Gurumayi! When I first clicked on the small heart, it opened and said, ”Have you talked to a good friend lately?” Then, this morning, as I was worrying about my future, I found one heart that said, “Take time. Take it easy. It will be all right.”
All these teachings are sweet opportunities for practicing Gurumayi's Message for 2017. Thank you, Gurumayi. Happy Valentine's Day! I love you!
As I began savoring each heart’s message as food for thought for the day, I relished an immediate connection with equanimity and a gentle energy in my surroundings. I closed my eyes for meditation. This all seemed so fitting for a heart-focused celebration of St. Valentine's Day.
I plan to focus on a different heart each day. In this way I can reach out to the one universal Heart that binds us together no matter where on the planet we live.
Each heart carries Gurumayi’s words as if she is directly talking to me. Yesterday I was telling my husband that I experience Gurumayi's darshan
in her teachings. For me, her teachings, her Message are my lifeline. This is the best Valentine's Day gift!
Happy Valentine's Day, Gurumayi! I love you!
I am in awe of this vision of the Great Heart. The thrilling dance of color, scintillating movement, pulsing stillness, and bursts of energy, the infinite possibilities and exquisite beauty expands my experience of my own heart. I come to know the inexhaustible, creative love energy that dwells within me.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this revelation.
I have been coming back to this page throughout the day, clicking on each heart, and soaking in each treasure from Gurumayi. I thought I had seen them all at least once. And then I found a teaching I hadn't seen before: “Take time. Take it easy. It will be all right.”
When I read those words, I felt as though Gurumayi was speaking directly to me—to my mind and to my heart—in answer to a practical question I have been thinking about for a long time.
I am so touched and grateful to receive Gurumayi's love, guidance, and blessings in this way, and to see anew how present she is in my life and how close she is to my heart.
I started today feeling kind of grumpy. Then I went to the Siddha Yoga path website, and the first heart I clicked on said: “Take time. Take it easy. It will be all right.” This confirmed a deep inner feeling, deeper than my previous state.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your ever-embracing guidance!
I am smiling from ear to ear after opening this wonderful Love in Action 2017
gift from Gurumayi. I felt as though each pulsating heart was beckoning me: ”Open me! Open me next!” I could feel my own heart opening to receive each teaching.
When I returned to the beautiful rose, I thought, ”How will I take each one of these teachings to heart and put them into action?” I realized I could choose one teaching to put into practice each day. I'm so excited to start this on Saint Valentine's Day!

Love is in the air today—that is for sure! This morning I woke up in Melbourne, Australia, to the sweetness in the air that the night sky holds as it merges into the light of the day. I visited the Siddha Yoga path website with the thought, ”It's Valentine’s Day—I wonder what I might find...” To my great delight, Gurumayi had created a gorgeous gift, the gift of virtues and qualities to focus on, in service of living in love.
I remember last year, when we received Gurumayi's Love in Action
gift. My daughter and I would click on a heart and focus on its quality for the day. It made such a difference to our day! It was fun to do! It was fun to talk about how we lived that quality during our day! It kept me close to love.
Happy “Day of Love” to you, Gurumayi. Thank you for the love that enters our home every time we remember you. Thank you for the lovely surprises that pop up on the Siddha Yoga website!

As I clicked on each heart, making sure not to miss any of them, a childlike delight welled up inside of me. It brought a smile to my face and a smile to my heart.
After reading each of the heart messages and clicking on the amber heart in the middle, I sat and watched the hearts pulsate for a moment and I noticed how my breath softened and deepened as it aligned to the rhythm of the animated hearts.
Thank you Gurumayi for this wonderful valentine! Thank you for this delightful gift!
My heart feels so expansive as I receive this blessing. I will put into practice these heart-shaped jewels of wisdom during this month of love!
Thank you, Gurumayi, for these wonderful reminders of how to live with heart!
I feel that Gurumayi is showing me my own worthiness through each message in the Love in Action
animation. I love the tender reminders of ways that I can put “love in action.”
A beautiful gift for Valentine’s Day and every day.
