Celebration of Mahaprabhuji’s Mahasamadhi, Jadan Ashram
On 29 December 2015, bhaktas from India and abroad gathered at Hindu Dharmsamrat Paramhans Sri Swami Madhavanandaji's Samadhi Temple in Jadan Ashram, Pali, Rajasthan, to celebrate the 52nd anniversary of the Mahasamadhi of Sri Deep Narayan Mahaprabhuji together with their Master, Vishwaguru Mahamandaleshwar Paramhans Sri Swami Maheshwaranandaji.
After Vishwaguruji's satsang and Guru Arati (prayer), bhajans continued all night until dawn, when the Mahasamadhi event was concluded with Shiva Arati. Then after Shiva Arati, under the auspicious constellation of that day, the sannyas initiation of new Swami Shivananda Puri took place.
On this holy occasion another fire ceremony followed - a peace yagya, in which the ashram's respected guest, the Prince of Lichtenstein, also participated. It was an ancient Vedic rite bestowing the blessings of peace, divine protection, happiness, health, prosperity and long life, in the presence of the holy fire.
