It is all the Grace & Blessings of Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj & GuruMaharaj Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj.

Devotees' core feelings expressing their Love & Gratitude

 Post Zoom Meet "Reflections"


Intense  sentiments (Bhav) and silent prayers of countless devotees were answered and we had beautiful & memorable Amrut Mahotsav celebration of our Beloved Pujya Swamiji Maharaj through Zoom Meet even in Lockdown of COVID -19. It is all Guru's Grace! 

How Blessed we are to have Pujya Swamiji's Darshan, Satsang & Blessings on this momentous occasion of His 75 th Birth Anniversary celebrations! Devotees felt  Swamiji physical presence !

And How Powerful Pujya Swamiji's message, it was filled with sentiments, brought tears to some! 

Devotees from the USA, UK, Canada, and all over India joined in the celebrations. There was an outpouring of sentiments of deepest gratitude & love by devotees who spoke felicitating their Beloved Swamiji Maharaj. They all shared their unique experiences and bonding with Pujya Swamiji Maharaj. How fortunate & blessed each one of us feels to be a part of this sacred event!

We will cherish the Global Oneness connected with this event forever! It was small but very special and memorable indeed! 

We wished, we had more time for all who wanted to speak and express their sentiments but, Pujya Swamiji had full schedule lined up on this sacred day, never the less, all were happy to be a part of this momentous occasion of Pujya Swamiji's Amrut Mahotsav Celebrations. The meet was scheduled for an hour but it went on overtime and still could have gone on & on. Also, Devotee group has compiled Amrut Mahotsav Souvenir for this occasion but did not get printed in COVID Lockdown, but it will soon. 

 We also know that Pujya Swamiji is on the thoughts & Prayers of countless devotees all over the globe today.

This is just the beginning, this new platform will allow devotees from all over the globe to connect with Pujya Swamiji Maharaj.

We share the " Reflection" & post-event messages from the devotees, herewith. They thanked the host of the Zoom meet to organize this event. In fact, the hosts  feel fortunate to get this blessed opportunity to be a tiny dot (not even) of the whole.         

We Pray for Pujya Swamiji's Good health & long life, So HE could be a guiding light to the spiritual aspirant all over.

We pray for the Peace in the World,

With love, regards & prayers,

At the Holy Feet of God Gurudev,

Dear Minalben and Bharatbhai,

This is unique. Lifelong bliss and memories to be cherished forever.
Thanks a million times. You have given the shape to our dreams.
Congratulations for making Amrutmahotsav of Swamiji Maharaj a great, very great event
Stay blessed
Regards and love,


Dear Minalben and Bharatbhai,
Thanks for your very kind mail.
We all are indeed grateful to you for your very kind initiative in setting up the Zoom Meeting for Felicitations to Revered Swamiji. and making the day so memorable indeed!
It was all so very well coordinated by you!
With Very Warm Regards,
Mukesh (From Amdavad Management Association)


Om Namo Narayanan Dear Minalji and Bharat Sir,

I don't know how to thank you enough for making it possible for all the devotees of our beloved Swamiji to be part of his birthday celebrations. You really came up with thunderous idea of going ZOOM and connecting everyone at one platform and expressing our deepest feelings for Swamiji on his 75th birthday. The lockdown has indeed paralyzed us and we felt so helpless but then there comes an Angel Minal with brightest idea and makes things so simple, easy and beautiful. It was a real joy to see each one speaking ones mind and even getting choked due to emotions. But all was worth it.

Let me once again Express my gratitude to you, and to be so thoughtful and including us in this noble and most successful event that you executed so efficiently.

With heartfelt thanks and regards
from Sheela Darbar (a devotee of Sivananda Ashram, Ahemdabad)

Revered Bharatbhai & Minalben

Pranams. Om Namo Narayana.

First of all, please accept my congratulations for organizing the Zoom meeting. Yes, as you say Pujya Swamiji’s message to us was extremely nice.
I joined the meeting much later but I saw the full recording and heard Pujya Swamiji very clearly and enjoyed.
With respectful regards.
Arvind Mehta (Past President of  DLS Surat branch)


Respected Divya Atman Bharatbhai & Minalben

Hari OM ! you both have facilitated all the devotees of Swamiji for celebration on his birthday yesterday in a unique & memorable way in the unprecedented crisis due to Covid-19. Yesterday’s celebration will be remembered for all time to come. You both deserve compliments as you have performed duties on behalf of local Sivanand ashram. We apologize for the the inconvenience caused due to mismanagement at our end in the ashram on technical aspects as all have to wait for reconnection.
Thank you very much for your all round successful arrangements. I personally & on behalf of all the trustees of the ashram sincerely express sense of gratitude.
With warm regards
Arun Oza (Trustee, Sivananda Ashram, Ahmedabad)


Respected and Revered Minalben , Om Namo Bhagawate Sivanandaya! Om Namo Bhagawate Chidanandaya! Om Namo Bhagawate Adhyatmanandaya! Om Namo Narayanaya! Pranams, Feel blessed to have this lifetime memory of His Holiness Sri Swamiji Maharaj’s Amrut Mahotsav. My Pranams and Vandan
In the Service of Gurudev,

Namo narayan Meenal aunty and Bharat uncle
It was a superb gesture to rope in so many of us to have a beautiful celebration of Swamiji's birthday. We all would be highly indebted to you for this opportunity to see, talk and seek his blessings on this great day. Both of you managed the show very nicely. Looking forward to see you both in person. My husband Sanjay Narang met you at your home in Chicago, if you remember. Please visit us whenever you are in Ahmedabad.
Once again thanks from the bottom of my heart.
Warm regards,
Manju Narang (Yoga Teacher, Ahmedabad) 


Dear Minal ji and Bharat ji

Namo Narayan ! I am really very grateful and thankful to both of you for organizing great idea of wishing Swamiji through Zoom Meet, I can now understand what true love you have for Swamiji by your thinking ability how to make him truly happy!! What else a World's Father require to see his children on his birthday and remember his achievements and accomplishments to all humanity!! I could see his eyes full of tears with love and was so proud about you both to make it happen and the heart shape cake with 75 number during this Covid Crisis is highly appreciative for your love towards him!! Although we all were in different parts of world, I felt we all were with Swamiji in the ashram and wishing him. It was such happiness for all of us and also received powerful message from our Master.

With love, best wishes and heart full of gratitude,

Deepthi Tondupally


Om Namo Narayan.

It was a very nice gesture on the part of Shri Bharatbhai & Smt. Minalben, to have arranged Pujya Swamiji’s darshan & his ashirvachan on his 75th birthday on May 03. Their devotion & commitment to Sivanand panth is exemplary. It was indeed a satsang, which to devotees here in Ahmedabad, gave a glance of Pujya Swamiji’s Divine work & followers outside India. For the devotee like me, who did not have the privilege of either seeing or hearing Swami Sivanandji Maharaj or Swami Chidanandji Maharaj, Pujya  Swami Adhyatmanandji is a 3 in 1  Saint, having all the divinity of his Gurus. Swamiji’s  pleasing personality was in full force on that day.

I thank the Naiks for arranging this program in such a short period and also for allowing my participation in it. Om.

It was a truly memorable experience for all of us. We are very fortunate to be a part of this celebration. It was your great efforts that made it possible to greet Swamiji almost personally and to celebrate his birthday despite the challenging times.

Our memories of Ashram, Swamiji’s talks, wisdom words, advices and joyous moments came out on memory horizon, certainly cherishing memories.

Thank you for making Amrutmahotsav of Swamiji Maharaj a memorable event.
