Swamiji left his physical frame twenty-eight 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.
HAVAN (Fire Ceremony):
Swamiji’s Mahasamadhi Havan will begin at 10:30 am at our Culver City Center (10925 Stever St, Culver City, CA 90230) and will last approximately 6 hours. The prashad (food spiritually blessed by the Master), consisting of very tasty vegetarian Kashmiri preparations and sweets will be served afterward.

There is no charge for attending the Mahasamadhi celebration, but donations to help cover the ceremonial expenses are greatly appreciated.
On the four days following the Havan, the Fellowship will hold its bi-annual fall retreat at the Culver City Center.
