Gurumayi Siddha Yoga

Gurumayi Chidvilasananda, also known as Guru Mayi, was a Siddha Guru who followed Swami Muktananda's teachings on the yoga path. Before he died in 1982, Swami Muktananda gave Gurumayi the Siddha Yoga lineage's power and authority. She preaches the message of the Siddhas, which is that heavenly consciousness can be experienced in this body. Gurumayi always points us back to our own consciousness, where this state is both possible and possible.

In order to awaken seekers to their inherent enlightenment potential, she bestows shaktipat, which she does as a Siddha Guru. She aids students in their mystical path to God through her lectures and writings, as well as through Siddha Yoga teaching and learning events and study materials. Gurumayi has authored books and songs specifically for children, whom she regards as the future of humanity.

As part of the work of the SYDA Foundation, her lessons are made available to people of all ages and backgrounds around the world. The Siddha Yoga Message for 2003: Gurumayi's vision for all humans is summarized in the following sentence:

A person should never stop appreciating and appreciating the gift of life that has been given to them. Whence comes the value of life? According to Siddha Yoga philosophy, this human life presents us with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We have the ability to shift from a commonplace view of the cosmos to a unique one. It is a sign of an illuminated heart to be on this planet and to see the universe from a spiritual perspective. Humans are obligated to use this vision in the most effective manner imaginable.

Chidvilasananda Final Thoughts

Chidvilasananda wrote about her shaktipat experience:

"So'ham [I am Him] and Aham Brahmasmi [I am of Brahman] were uttered to me by Baba Muktananda at the pattbhisheka, the rite in which he passed on the power of his lineage to me. A tremendous energy surged through my body as I repeated the mantra, causing a whirlwind of change throughout my entire system. I lost all sense of self-consciousness and realized that all divisions, such as inner and outer, were arbitrary and fabricated by my mind's construct. Everything about me and the world around me was the same. I was utterly unable to think. Other than the pulsating consciousness "I am That," there was only enormous happiness and brightness to be found in the experience itself. "What is Baba?" was all I could think as my brain started working properly again. In spite of his outward appearance, how does this person possess the ability to instantly impart such a profound experience? In my heart, I realized that the chant was a reference to God. I'd never felt a force so powerful and yet so calming."
