Chidananda Birth Centenary Celebration ( Sept 24, 2015 - Sept 24, 2016)
OM Namo Bhagawate Sivanandaya!
OM Namo Bhagawate Chidanandaya!
OM Namo Narayanaya!
Adoration & Prostrations Holy Master Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj on HIS Birth Anniversary (Sept 8, 2016)
life after Self-realisation, after becoming an enlightened sage
and shining as a great light of the Himalayas, was a saga of
selfless service—service of the poor, service of the suffering,
service of the sick, service of the distressed, service of
spiritual aspirants and seekers, service of all humanity,
service of the whole world. In diverse, numerous ways, his
entire life was one great, continuous stream of selfless
service. He had even forgotten how to think of himself; he could
only think of others. He lived thinking of others: "In what way
can I be of benefit, in what way can I serve?" That was Gurudev
Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj till the very last days."
In the words of Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj ..............
"Celebration of Swami Chidanandaji's Birthday is really worship of God."
"During the celebrations of the Birthdays of great men you hear of their actions, their thoughts and their instructions, and the way in which they led their life. You imbibe several good qualities from their glorious example. You try to emulate them. You put those qualities into practice in your daily life. Frequent Birthday celebrations are necessary.".....
"Practise compassion, service, humility and other virtues. Then shine like our Chidanandaji. This is my fervent prayer ! Chidananda is a Jeevanmukta, a great saint, an ideal Yogi, a Para Bhakta and a great sage. Swami Chidananda is all this and much more".
Sri Swami Adhyatmananda on His Master " How fortunate we are! How blessed are we to be born in the same era! Glories to Gurumaharaj! In Bhagawad Gita Lord Sri Krishna has described the characteristics of "Sthitha Prajna", but it is rare to see & meet the one! but we have lived with the ONE. Hail Hail Chidananda!
Let us imbibe virtues and teachings from the Life Divine of GuruMaharaj and that is the Celebration of Chidananda Birth Centenary, in a True Sense".

The Blessed Lord said: When a man completely casts off,
O Arjuna, all the desires of the mind and is satisfied
in the Self by the Self, then is he said to be one of
The man attains peace, who, abandoning all desires, moves about without longing, without the sense of mine and without egoism.(2:71)
This is the Brahmic seat (eternal state), O son of Pritha! Attaining to this, none is deluded. Being established therein, even at the end of life one attains to oneness with Brahman. (2:72)
At the end of many births the wise man comes to Me, realising that all this is Vasudeva (the innermost Self); such a great soul (Mahatma) is very hard to find. (7:19)
