Saturday, September 22 – Sunday, September 23 2018
Neem Karoli Baba’s Mahasamadhi was on September 11, 1973, the day before the full moon in September.
We continue with our tradition of celebrating Maharaj-ji’s Mahasamadhi Bhandara on the closest weekend to the actual astrological date. This year, Anant Chaturdasi, the auspicious day on which Maharaj-ji took Mahasamadhi, falls on a Saturday. This allows us to celebrate on a weekend while also observing the actual auspicious day! Please note this change for the 2018 Mahasamadhi celebration-chanting of Hanuman Chalisa for 24 hours begins on Saturday at 1:08 and continues until Sunday at 1:08 followed by aarti and prasad.
