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.
Everyone had their eyes on the pada puja…
Natchintanaii devoutly sung filled up the atmosphere with a high spiritual vibration.

The keynote multimedia presentation with music, film excerpts, photos, graphics etc… stressed on a few key practical quotes from Gurudeva.
The soul body plus the essence of the soul, Parashakti and Parasiva, together equals the totality of the soul. The essence of the soul is being Siva and the soul body is becoming Siva. The soul body is maturing, growing. We suffer until we learn to control our body, mind and emotions achieving imperturbability even if we find out the world is going to end tomorrow. Calmness is a platform for meditation.
