Memorial Message by Sri Swami Satchidananda

Gurudev Maha Samadhi 2When I leave my body I will continue to guide you.
Remember you will never be without me!
The body may go, but I am always with you. Always!

It is like I’m wearing a robe. Your perception stops at the robe.Gurudev Maha Samadhi 5
Once it is gone those who have the capacity to see,
will see the spiritual body. It is the spiritual body
that is able to go anywhere and everywhere, moving freely.

A soul wants to soar but the body is a fetter.
Gurudev Maha Samadhi 6If I want to go from one place to another, I cannot travel easily.
If I want to pick up something, I am limited
by what is within reach of my hand.
When I am out of this body I can reach anywhere and everywhere.
The whole universe is ours. I can go wherever I want.

The time will come when I will no longer be confinedGurudev Maha Samadhi 3
in the body and can easily reach everybody.
Then you people will see what great things will happen.
Remember, the Guru-disciple relationship never ends.
Gurudev Maha Samadhi 1It’s always there. Whether the Guru leaves the body
or the disciple dies. That relationship is eternal,
and Guru and disciple can never be separated.

Gurudev Maha Samadhi 4
