Baba Muktananda’s Mahasamadhi
On the full moon night of October 2, 1982, Baba Muktananda took Mahasamadhi—he left his physical body and merged with supreme Consciousness. The lunar anniversary of Baba’s Mahasamadhi is on the full moon of October and is celebrated as one of the eight Siddha Yoga holidays. In 2014, Baba’s Mahasamadhi is October 7.
During the month of October, Siddha Yogis honor Baba’s life and legacy by chanting Baba’s name throughout the month and by participating in a Celebration Satsang.
The highlight of the Mahasamadhi celebration is the Global Siddha Yoga Shaktipat Intensive. In the Siddha Yoga Intensive Gurumayi bestows shaktipat diksha, the sacred initiation that awakens a seeker’s inner spiritual energy, Kundalini Shakti.
