A special and sacred photo

At the Nirvan Divas celebrations this year, the 49th anniversary of Sri Neem Karoli Baba‘s passing, Mataji shared a special and sacred photo with us for the first time in almost 50 years.
It shows the body of her Guru laid out on the deathbed in His ashram in Vrindavan, where His body was also later burned. And Ma aghast, sitting very close to Him.
Mataji said to us, “For Ma, a universe collapsed back then – I realized that I had to detach myself from His physical form if I didn‘t want to lose Him.”

Prasad from Maharajji’s Ashram Kainchi in Northern India

This prasad – a special picture of Sri Neem Karoli Baba – was sent by Vinod Joshi from Baba’s ashram Kainchi in northern India.

Vinod has been a caretaker at Ashram Kainchi for many years and Mataji knows him from the time when she and Vishnu Digambar themselves were sitting at Baba’s feet, he was a young chela of Maharajji at that time and can be seen in many photos with Him.

Vinod gave the picture to a young man from India when he visited Ashram Kainchi and Vinod heard from him that he was living in Germany. Vinod asked him to take the prasad from Kainchi to Sri Neem Karoli Baba Mandir and to convey his pranam to Mataji.
