Most Beloved and Blessed Children of the Divine,
It’s a matter of great joy to inform you all that the Most Worshipful and
Rev. Guru Bhagawan Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj with all His divine presence
graced and blessed Holy Sri Sivananda Ashram, Rishikesh. As it was properly
announced through all possible media, the gathering of devotees was packed to
In spite of His very delicate health and frail body, He walked by himself to the dias, poured His heart pouring divine message to the large gathering of the devotees gathered from all the four corners of India. He said; “Guru has no coming or going, see Him at all time, in all conditions, in all situations. Feel His divine Presence everywhere”. Though the body was so frail but the divine spirit of the inner “CHIDANANDA’ was so strong that it has reached to His devotees all over the world.
At Sivananda Ashram Ahmedabad, we had grand gathering to rejoice and sing the glory of Sri Gurudev on Sunday July13, 2003. From early in the morning we all had Brahma- Muhurta prayer, meditation and listened to the voice of ‘Sivananda’ and ‘Chidananda’ to feel more with them upon this sacred occasion. Sri Gurudev’s Paduka Puja, sharing of Holy Master’s teaching & devotional Bhajans brought their living presence in the hearts of all the devotees. Mahaprasad (Bhandara) was served to about eight hundred devotees.
May Sri Guru Bhagawan and Almighty Lord’s grace be ever upon you all.

There were discourses by Sri Swami Adhyatmanandaji on Uddhav Gita. The
teaching of Lord Sri Krishna, which He imparted to His dear devotee Uddhav just
before departing the body form. The
Essence of Lord’s teaching is that detach the mind from the objects and attach it to the Lord. Nothing exists, nothing belongs to you, and you are
neither mind nor body. Immortal self you are. Work is worship; dedicate it to
the Lord. Remember Saints, remember the Divine Name. Nothing is permanent. Even
this will pass away; so balance your mind in pain and pleasure. Tat Twam Asi-
That thou art, realize this and be free. Take refuge and abide in the supreme.
