On August 19, 2023, Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville will observe the 21st Mahasamadhi Anniversary of Sri Swami Satchidananda. Join us as we honor our Satguru. Our lineage and tradition tells us that after Mahasamadhi, the shakti of the Satguru continues to be ever-present and pervasive. Thus, the Satguru continues to guide devotees from within and to uplift the world. The Mahasamadhi anniversary is an especially favorable time to engage in sadhana as it enhances the power of one’s spiritual practices. (The evening program will be livestreamed from the Ashram. Local IY centers are also holding programs so please check with them for program details.)

Distance has nothing to do between a Guru and a disciple.
It is the nearness of the heart that counts
—Sri Swami Sivananda
