Honoring Shri Dhyanyogiji’s Mahasamadhi

“Each and every aspect of the Mahasamadhi retreat is for your energy and growth and benefit. The greatest force that has brought you here is Guru’s grace. That grace continues to flow and increase. That is why we are here together.”
–Anandi Ma

. . . . . . . .

Join Anandi Ma and Dileepji at the 24th anniversary of Dhyanyogi’s complete and final union with the Divine. Every year, at the anniversary of Guruji’s mahasamadhi, the largest gatherings of his disciples take place in America and in India. Don’t miss this profound opportunity to contemplate the unfathomable impact Dhyanyogi has had and will continue to have on each of us. Immerse yourself in intense spiritual practice, twice-daily meditation, and sacred chanting as we celebrate his life and open our hearts to that continually flowing grace.

He shone like gold…

“Guruji appeared in a beautiful body with a profound smile and such a state as was never seen when He was in the body itself. His body shone like gold, His eyes shone such light that even the deities present there were honoring Guruji.”
–Anandi Ma

In celebration, Ma always plans something extraordinary—one year we built a replica of the hut in which Guruji was raised, another year we created a life-sized clay murti of Guruji. We’ve had a diorama of his mother Sampathidevi receiving a message from Lord Krishna, Guruji driving the Chariot of Dharma, and twice we completed the anusthan of making and offering 125,000 Shiva Lingams. We’ve chanted all night, meditated together, and shared special feasts.

A 2011 Mahasamadhi participant describes, “As the Shakti built over the days, my heart seemed to melt more and more. The example of devotion and love that Anandi Ma and Dileepji showed us was very touching and real. Their wisdom and energy also inspired me at a very deep level. I was given many blessings over what seemed like a timeless span of days during the retreat. Each day felt packed with so much variety and power.”
