Join Us for Babaji's Ārādhanā Live-stream on YouTube

Join us on Tuesday, September 21st, 2021 for our Third Annual Ārādhanā Ceremony to honor our beloved Guru, Sri Baba Hari Dass @ Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple

Puja and Yajna 7:30-10:00 AM PDT

The date of Babaji's passing was Sept. 25th, 2018 which fell during the period called Pitru Paksha in traditional Indian culture. It is an auspicious 16-day period beginning on the Full moon day in late August/September. Babaji passed on the second day of Pitru Paksha, the day after the full moon. In this tradition, Pitru Paksha is an important time for annually honoring ancestors with Tarpanam and Shraddha. If one leaves their body during that period as Babaji did, it is considered particularly auspicious.

It is traditional to honor great Saints and Yogis on their Mahasamadhi date (the lunar date of their passing) with observance of Puja, Yajna, Satsang, Bhoj, etc. This year the date of Babaji’s Mahasamadhi is Tues., Sept. 21st.
