The monks are enjoying Sadhu Paksha. The normal morning group arati and meditation is replaced with sadhanas performed on one’s own. One such was Gurudeva’s recommendation to “just wander on San Marga as a sadhu with no place to go, sit by a tree and merge with nature.”
For our "Great Departure" we prefer to be at home in a religious, uplifting environment, in a clear minded high state of consciousness, having resolved all differences and fulfilled all obligations. There is nothing to fear: "Death is a blissful, light filled transition." We then get settled in the inner worlds with like-minded people of similar religious beliefs.
