*Mahasamadhi: a great yogi’s final, conscious exit from the body

Since Paramhamsa Yogananda’s passing on March 7 in 1952, this day has become a sacred occasion for all those whom his life has touched. Millions of people around the world have been touched by the life of Yogananda and inspired by his Autobiography of a Yogi. We will gather tonight to hear stories of his life, chant and meditate, listen to recordings of his voice, and receive his inward blessing. All are welcome to this devotional, beautiful evening.
