Swami Lakshmanjoo’s Mahasamadhi Celebration 2022

The Universal Shaiva Fellowship is happy to announce the Mahasamadhi Celebration of our beloved Gurudev Swami Lakshmanjoo. This grand occasion will take place on Tuesday the 13th, of September 2022at 10:30 am (PST).

Swamiji left his physical frame twenty-three years ago in India, on September 27, 1991. Since that time, each year we joyously celebrate his Divine life and remember him by performing a traditional “Havan” or “Fire Ceremony” along with worship and the recitation of sacred hymns.

Kalagni Rudra's OM (trishula with staff)HAVAN (Fire Ceremony):

Swamiji’s Mahasamadhi Havan will begin at 10:30 am and will be held online, depending on circumstances also in our new home in Damaskus, Oregon. The ceremony will last approximately 3 hours.
