March 7 and 9: Mahasamadhi commemorations of Paramahansa Yogananda and Swami Sri Yukteswarji

In the over hundred years since the birth of Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda, this beloved world teacher has come to be recognised as one of the greatest emissaries to the West of India's ancient wisdom. His life and teachings continue to be a source of light and inspiration to people of all races, cultures, and creeds.

On March 7, 1952, the great guru entered mahasamadhi, a God‑illumined master’s conscious exit from the body at the time of physical death. He had just finished giving a short speech at a banquet honouring India’s ambassador to the United States, Dr Binay R. Sen, at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.

The Mahasamadhi anniversaries of Gurudeva Paramahansa Yoganandaji (on March 7) and our paramguru Swami Sri Yukteswarji (on March 9) are commemorated every year through various programmes across YSS ashrams and meditation centres in India.

We invite you to join commemorative meditations and satsangas at Yogdoa Satsanga Math - Dakshineswar and various YSS Dhyana Kendras in Kolkata and other places in West Bengal.

Details about the timings of the programmes will be shared here soon.
