Guru Maharaj Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj attained Mahasamadhi on August 28, 2008 

 


 

 

Most Worshipful and Revered Guru Bhagwan, Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj has attained Mahasamadhi and merged into the bliss absolute at the age of 94 years on Thursday, 28th August 2008 at 8:12 PM.

Disciple and Successor of H H Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj and President of the world renowned Divine Life Society for the last four decades, Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj was working and serving the Divine Cause of Sri Gurudev's Mission tirelessly and spreading His Divine Life Message all over the world. He was an embodiment of humility, purity and kindness. He lived a life and ideals of a true renunciate. Service to lepers became His ideal and worship to Lord Narayana. He served them with tender love and compassion. He was inspirer of CHIPKO movement. His work for the protection of Himalaya and Ganges will be cherished for ages to come.

Revered Saint, Mother Teresa considered Him a Living Saint Francis of Assisi. For His own Guru, Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj, He was  an incarnation of Buddha.Whereas the entire Europe regarded Him an Uncrowned King. Sri Sri Maa Anandamayi saw in Him Lord Narayana Himself. Most Worshipful and Revered, Sri Pramukh Swamiji Maharaj of BAPíS, has seen in Him His own Guru Pujya Yogiji Maharaj's Holy Presence.

Linguist, perfectionist, full of serenity, divinity, absence of vanity, simplicity, equanimity, non-irritability, humility, integrity and nobility were His laudable virtues that earned Him reverence from the people of all four corners of the world. His service and sympathy to sick and downtrodden, poor and needy, birds and beasts were incomparable. He was oozing love from head to toe to known and unknown.

His mortal coil was brought to Rishikesh at 1:00 AM and was immersed in holy stream of Ganges before sunrise of 29th August, 2008.

In His will, He has expressed the desire not to make any monument in His name, not to be informed anyone of His passing away, not to organize even any feast and festival traditionally performed when a monk cast away the mortal coil.  But in case, if devotees wish, they can feed the poor, sick and street beggars.
 

Though physically, Beloved & Worshipful Holy Master H H Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj may not be with us, but through His Virat Swaroop, He will be inspiring, guiding and protecting His countless devotees and disciples who are busy serving the Mankind and struggling to achieve the realization of the absolute. OM Shanti !
