This booklet commemorates the 25th anniversary of Nisargadatta Maharaj’s ‘Mahasamadhi,’ which occurred in 1981. It includes the speech given by S. K. Mullarpattan, beloved disciple and longest-serving English interpreter, at the condolence gathering, along with six small black and white photos of Maharaj’s business, apartment and neighborhood.
In moving words, Mullarpattan recounted incidents from the last days of the great Advaita Sage, thanked the family and followers for the loving and attentive care they had given, told of Maharaj’s detached attitude in his final days even as he drew his last breath, and described the indelible impact left upon anyone who came into contact with Maharaj.
Accompanying this Commemorative Booklet are 6 rare Picture Cards which you may place in your altar-shrine. They capture the magnetism of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj in various moods for his loving disciples and followers, the world over.

The Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj Kendra proclaimed that Maharaj’s death was not an occasion for sorrow and sadness, but a time for festivities. After all, the event signifies maha yoga, the ultimate Yoga, in which the individual Self merges with the Absolute. To emphasise the spirit of celebration, the Kendra organized a magnificent procession.
At 12:30 pm, the procession to the burning ghat started from Maharaj’s house at 10th Lane, Khetwadi. His sacred body was placed on a richly decorated truck. The procession was accompanied by a colourful band of musicians. At intervals, fireworks went off. Nearly 300 people, including family members and devotees, escorted the body of Maharaj.
