Today from the Simhasth Kumbha Mela in Ujjain, the world received a tremendous blessing when many saints, including His Holiness Vishwaguruji Mahamandaleshwar Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda, bathed in the Holy River Kshipra for the first full moon Royal Bath, Purnima Shahi Snaan. This occasion was made even more auspicious by the fact that it was also Hanuman Jayanti (birthday).

When so many saints come together in such a Holy place, and they are joined by millions of sincere devotees seeking oneness with the Divine, this radiates a Supreme vibration of positive energy for the whole planet. And Vishwaguruji explained that the Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga in Ujjain is the center of the Universe, so this great blessing goes out to the whole Universe.
