Gurumayi Chidvilasananda is a Siddha
Guru who walked the path of yoga under the guidance of her
Guru, Swami Muktananda. Gurumayi received the power and
authority of the Siddha Yoga lineage from Swami Muktananda
before he passed away in 1982. Wherever she goes, whatever
she says, Gurumayi conveys the Siddhas' message that the
experience of divine consciousness is attainable in this
human body. She constantly points us back inside ourselves,
where this state is both possible and accessible.
As a Siddha Guru, she carries out
her mission of awakening seekers to their own potential
for enlightenment by bestowing shaktipat. Through her teachings,
her writings, and her meditation Intensives, she guides
students on this mystical journey toward God, helping us
move beyond our own limitations and reach the goal. Gurumayi
also expresses great love and reverence for children as
the holders of our future and has written books and songs
expressly for them.
Through her words and experience,
Gurumayi introduces us to the spiritual practices and the
way of living a yogic life in the world. In embracing her
teachings, we can transform ourselves and perceive the bond
of love that unites each one of us with God.
