Paramhansa Yogananda’s Mahasamadhi, or conscious exit from the body, was on 7 March, 1952. This anniversary is an important moment for all of his devotees; together, we will celebrate the life and the mission of the Master and ask him to guide us ever more surely toward the inner light, as he himself merged consciously with the Divine Light on the occasion of his Mahasamadhi.
