March 7 & 9: Mahasamadhi Divas of Gurudeva & Swami Sri Yuktewarji

In the hundred years since the birth of Sri Sri Paramahansa Yoganandaji, this beloved world teacher has come to be recognised as one of the greatest emissaries to the West of India's ancient wisdom. His life and teachings continue to be a source of light and inspiration to people of all races, cultures, and creeds.

On March 7, 1952, the great guru entered mahasamadhi, a God‑illumined master’s conscious exit from the body at the time of physical death. He had just finished giving a short speech at a banquet honouring India’s ambassador to the United States, Dr. Binay R. Sen, at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.

The Mahasamadhi anniversary of Gurudeva is commemorated on March 7 every year, through various programmes across YSS ashrams and meditation centres in India.
