On Saturday 14th November sishyas of Mauritius gathered at the Spiritual Park to celebrate Gurudeva's Mahasamadhi. It was a special moment for everyone present. We bring you as few photos of the ceremony.
Tirthadeva conducted the pada puja while a complete silence pervaded the Ganesha Mandapam.
The Holy Tiruvadi which is carefully kept and worshipped inside the private shrine of the Dharmasala, has been brought into the Mandapam for this auspicious event.
Sishyas sitting, quietly immersed in the Guru's Darshan.
The ceremony was conducted at 3.00 PM at a time when the Park is quiet and with not so many visitors around.

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Patanjali's Yoga Sutras - False Knowledge" (June 15, 2014)
Bodhinatha comments on Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Verses 1.5 through 1.12. The restraint of the mental activities of correct knowledge, erroneous knowledge, fantasy, sleep and memory is achieved through practice and detachment. He focuses up the subject of erroneous knowledge and relates Gurudeva's discussion on how to resolve deep seated erroneous conception from Cognizantibility. Hatha yoga balances ida and pingala. Mindfulness and memory relate. Desire is life. Transmute our desire and change our life.
