A special and sacred photo

At the Nirvan Divas celebrations this year, the 49th anniversary of Sri Neem Karoli Baba‘s passing, Ma 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. Ma 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.
