By Swami Muktananda
This is my prayer to Sri Gurudev!
May everyone’s life be a paradise.
May the trivial feeling of ‘I and mine’ disappear,
and may the knowledge of Chiti arise in our hearts.
May all beings worship you with love and equanimity,
and may the movement of our breath ever repeat So’ham.
Bless me, that I may worship you with the awareness of you as the Self of all.
May I abandon distinctions of race, religion, and language,
and keep my mind in purity.
May I behold you, Gurunath, in the great and small,
the suffering and poor, the noble and foolish.
Give me simplicity of mind, a humble spirit, and a generous heart.
May I bestow true knowledge.
Grant me this boon, Gurudev, O Self of all!
May I always meditate on you in the temple of my heart
May I always love the all-pervasive light.
May I always be devoted to you, O Guru.
Let my awareness be steadfast in knowledge, yoga, and meditation.
May I ever be a worshiper of Siddha Vidya;
may my mind merge with Chitshakti.
May I always behold in you Rama, Krishna, Shiva, and Shakti.
May I live in Ganeshpuri, where your Siddha Yoga dwells.
Set me free from distinctions of country, language, sect, and race,
and give me equality of vision.
May everyone attain simplicity, truth, courage, valour, discretion and radiance.
May the world be a garden of joy for all,
complete with the wishing tree and the wishing cow.
May Siddha students become masters of their senses
and take delight in Kriya Yoga.
O Gurunath! May I always see you within the temple of the human heart
and feel fulfilled.
Let me fulfill my duties so long as there is life in this body,
and let me remember you constantly.
Let my life be full of my own labor, Gurunath.
May I meditate on you always.
O Gurudev! Grant me this at least: may I always be united with you.
May I behold you always and everywhere, from east to west, from north to south.
You are Parashiva, invisible and pure; you are the very form of Satchidananda.
The universe is in you; you are in the universe;
there is no differentiation in you; you are unsurpassed, unique.
Muktananda Says: Sri Gurunath! May the Siddha Science come to full flower. May our meditation be dynamic. May we find repose in the Blue Pearl.
May I always wander joyfully in the world, and may you abide forever in my heart.
O Gurunath! May our lives be the play of universal Consciousness!
