Sairam dear all,
Happy Thursday,
In the last post we read about Swami ji's efficient system for Sai Prachar,today the book takes us to the detail of Swami ji's Mahasamadhi. Readers who have missed earlier parts of biography can read by clicking on the links which are given below at the end of post , chapter by chapter.Jai Sai Ram.

Narasimha Swamiji had laid a firm foundation for the Sai movement by 1956. Sai Baba who was confined only to Shirdi was already known all over India. Even in abroad, people were familiar with Sai Baba. The All India Sai Samaj had over four hundred Upasamjams affiliated to it.

Temples for Sai Baba were constructed all over the country and in 1956, as many as eighty Sai temples were in existence and many more were under construction. Every day the number of devotees worshiping Sai Baba were on the increasing trend and in order to continue the movement started by Narasimha Swamiji thousands and thousands of volunteers got ready.As a worthy successor, Radhakrishna Swamiji was busily engaged in spreading the Sai movement in Karnataka since 1952.

On 12th September 1956, 83rd birthday of Narasimha Swamiji as per the birth star was celebrated on a low profile at the All India Sai Samaj and other Upasmajams. Swamiji’s health status was not satisfactory. His physical body had almost worn out.Even by 8th October 1956, he was weak due to fever.He was confined to bed. Even then he directed from his bed various activities like dictation of the editorial for ‘Sai Sudha’, attended to office correspondence and meditated when he was free of duties.
In the next seven days, he developed constipation.His limbs grew benumbed and were not even able to move around.He breathed his last and merged in Sai Baba at 3.45 a.m. on 19th October 1956, the holy Ashwaija poornima day.
When he attained Mahasamadhi, Narasimha Swamiji transferred all his spiritual powers to Radhakrishna Swamiji, whom he had anointed as his worthy successor. At that time, Radhakrishna Swamiji was staying in Bangalore. By the evening of 18th October 1956 Radhakrishna Swamiji learnt that the condition of Narasimha Swamiji was quite serious and therefore spent the entire night in meditation.

By 4 a.m. he came out of his meditation and informed his intimate devotees-
“My Gurudev Narasimha Swamiji has attained Mahasamadhi just now. As a parting gift he has given away all his spiritual prowess to me.”
He instructed them to get ready to catch the morning train to Madras.

Sai Baba had given away his treasure to Narasimha Swamiji on 29th August 1936 and now this was gifted to Radhakrishna Swamiji.

Indeed Radhkrishna Swamiji inherited the three in one treasure-the holy ‘Trinity’ from 19th October 1956 onwards. Along with a band of devotees Radhakrisha Swamiji left for Madras for taking part in the cremation and other final rituals.

Tidings of Narasimha swamiji’s Mahasamadhi spread quickly around and crowds rushed in to pay their respects. Reuter flashed the news over the globe. Telegrams poured in from far and near expressing grief at the heavy loss. Special services were arranged at various temples, headquarters of the All India Sai Samaj and affiliated upasamajams.

Condolence meetings were held by Sai devotees at various places all over the country mourning the sad demise of their mentor who showed them who Sai Baba is.

On the evening of 31st October 1956, a public meeting was held at the All India Sai Samaj. Kaviyogi Shuddhananda Bharathi Swamiji presided over the meeting. At this memorial service, Radhakrishna Swamiji, Rege Maharaj, Das Ganu Maharaj, Sri K.S.Ramaswamy Shastry, Sri. T.M. Krishnaswamy Iyer and other dignitaries paid glowing tributes to the departed Narasimha Swamiji and his services.To be continued...

About Author.

I feel I am like a river, having my own course, stream and flow but the final destiny is to be one with the boundless ocean of my Sathguru Shirdi Sai Baba.

Amidst all the worldly rituals I am performing,I do not dare to loose sight of my Sainath. He is the sole driving force, the guide and the Supreme master.

The strings of my life are in his hand,I am just a puppet at His Holy Feet.
