Just got news late last night that Guruji (Ravanand Saraswati) passed from this world into Maha-samadhi (24-10-2016). His body is now resting in Barsana.
I met my Guruji in January 2006 during a pilgrimage, visiting the shakti-peeths of India. We have traveled all over India together visiting holy sites (Hariwar, Allahabhad, Devprayag, Yamnotri, Gangotri, Jwala-ju, Mahakhal, Ujjain, Nashik, Barsana, Rameshwaram, Madurai, Kanyakumari). We was such a fun person and had a great sense of humour. He hated people crying so there will be few tears.
OM NAMO NARAYANA Guru-ji
I will hold a bandhara (feast) with my students on Remembrance Day – Friday November 11.
Guruji caught a bad cold and it got progressively worse. He loved to smoke chillum and led a very simple sadhu life.
I have been very blessed having him as my Guru. He was an inspirational person.
