Dear most beloved Guruji,
Day and night I am with you and my dear sisters and brothers these days. I wish and pray that this will be the last year where I stay abroad while you and our family are at home, at Arunachala. Love greetings from all of us beloved Lord.
Krisnadas

Beloved Madhukarji,
I am happy for each one who receives the present to experience love and peace with you at Arunachala. I am very thankful that I was allowed to experience this myself. Thank you from my heart for including me in this love. I feel secure and protected, there is peace inside of me. I bow in love to Madhukarji, Ramana, Arunachala.

Beloved Master,
More and more I can perceive this sensitive, gracious and healing love and fundamental truth, peace. Especially during our first Pradakshina I could sense this in a very lively way and in pure joy. Thank you from my heart,
Your Johannes

Dear Master,
When we were sitting in silence on the rocks at Arunachala, I could hear the silence for the first time. It was very beautiful. So tender and subtle and very pleasant.
Thank you, Christoph

Dear Madhukarji,
In the moment I first felt your presence, I was reborn again.
From this moment my whole life changed: My work, my students, my friends, my kids, even my partner, they all became somehow more loving. It is like I brought the love I received from you to them and into my whole world.
Thank you so much.
With love, Tatjana

I am very grateful for your grace. Paradise is here now in the beautiful silence where all beings can truly meet.
In love with you, Prema

Dear Madhukarji,

Faithfully yours,

Beloved Madhukarji,
It is so still inside my head! Here it is so easy to melt into silence with the question of all questions: Who am I? To taste this love and to enjoy each moment aware and clear. The Pradakshina floated me with Arunachala Shiva and big happiness. I know you since 10 years and I can say there is nothing better that could have happened to me and my family.
In big gratitude and love,
Heidemarie.

Namaste Beloved Master,
Every time I come back to see that I am not the mind it feels like I have won the 10 billion lifetimes lottery – the whole eternity is here at my disposal, freedom beyond understanding! It would be easy to say that meeting you is the most important thing in my life, but it would be arrogant to compare this with other events. Meeting you is more important than all my lives. What can I say except thank you!
Love,
Niklas

Beloved Guruji,
By your gracious smile
And with your guide
I have found the holy river inside
Taking your advice and turn in
I have discovered the lake of beauty within
You inspired me to look what is
Now I am in the ocean of bliss
No use to search for the wish-fulfilling tree
As you say I am already free.
Dreams can come and go
Blossom and fall
Mere Self shines alone
One and all
Jaia Jaia Hare Om
Amrita.

Dear Madhukar,
I am so happy! I am overflowing with love – for you, the world, the people and for life. Finding you was the best. Your present is the biggest. Thank you.
Love, Mira

Dear Madhukar,
I can see the light, the peace that radiates from you. I taste the sweetness of BEING together.
In deep love,
Navya

Beloved Madhukar,
In Ramana’s cave, deep love, thankfulness, simplicity and perfection came over me. It made my heart melt. It said: “That is why you came here”. Thank you for your guidance. In high tribute, Karlheinz

Beloved Guruji Sri Madhukarji,
Thank you from my heart for your compassion.
Love, Ramani

Thank you beloved Master for allowing me to be here with You, Arunachala and the Sangha. Thank you for Grace.
I love You. Spela

Beloved Master Madhukar,
Since I know you my life became much more precious, much more meaningful. A lot of wonderful joyful things happen – THANK You!!! I also changed myself, became more gentle and loving. You opened my heart that was firmly sealed. Thank you for everything.
Your Karoline.

Dear Sangha,
Even though I hardly spoke to any of you, you are already great friends. Many of you radiate such a good energy that only looking at you brings me back to be more present and more loving.
Love, Filip

***

Beloved Master,
Thank you for the wonderful present to walk the Pradakshina with you and the Sangha. My trust in myself and in you grew, I can relax inside. It is doing me so good to be here.
Thank you, your Nina

Thank you beloved Madhukarji for being in my life.
When I met you the first time I had the feeling that an anchor sinks deeply on the sea bed. And regardless how turbulent the ocean is, nothing can happen to me anymore. Because on the sea bed it is always silent. Love and gratitude, Darshana

Beloved Master Madhukar,
In this retreat I more and more became aware of the mind games. Through you I am allowed to realize again and again when I am on the mind-trip. In this life I am attracted to the absolute. That is why I am here with you. Here is so much silence and peace. It is so precious, so full of beauty, so natural and sweet, light and unique to be in the Self. There are no words how I can thank you.
From heart to heart, Pratima

    Dearest, beloved Madhukarji, I have slowly arrived back home after this most touching, deep, wondrous, loving, moving, mind changing silence retreat in Tiru. Grateful for your wonderful teaching to each one of us in a most amazing way that I have never experienced before, grateful for every loving supporting soul in the Sangha, grateful for my deep feelings towards Arunachala who invited me into its inner secret. Thank you beloved MadhukarJi, thank you dear Sangha, thank you Lord Shiva, Arunachala. You are all in my heart. I am that! One Love!

    Dear beloved Madhukarji,
    One year ago I met you here at Arunachala. I could feel you know me. And so it seems you know everyone’s mind.
    Thank you,
    Joana
