Mahasamadhi Day of

Swami Yogiraj Nanak Ji Maharaj

10 years and Eternally with Us.

March 1st is the Mahasamadhi Day of our Beloved Guruji Swamiji Yogiraj Nanak whose physical presence has not been with us since 2013 but His Grace , Love, and Divine teachings continue to be our inspiration and Guiding Light. 

It is up to our sincerity and innermost calling to experience His presence in our midst simply because in essence the Guru resides within.

On this occasion, we share a Special Guru Stotram: Hymn in Praise of the Guru along with Maluk Das Invocation

recorded at Yogavani Temple 

श्री गुरुस्तोत्रम् Guru Stotram & Maluk Das Invocation

Jai Shri Satguru Maharaj Ki!

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shantih
