Christ Like Life of Lahiri Mahasaya

Mahasamadhi of  Sri Sri Lahiri Mahasaya (26 th september)

At the morning hour of ten, one day after the body of Lahiri Mahasaya has been consigned to the flames, the resurrected master, in a real but transfigured body, appeared before three disciples, each of whom was in a different city.

“So when this corruptible shall have put on in corruption, and this moral shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written:m Death is swallowed up in victory. O death where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” (I Corinthians 15: 54- 55)

A significant feature of Lahiri Mahasaya”s life was his gift of Kriya initiation to those of every faith. Not Hindus only, but Moslems and Christians were among  his foremost disciples. Monists and dualists, those of all faiths or no established faith, were  impartially received and instructed by the universal guru. One of his advanced chelas was Abdul Gufoor Khan, a Mohammedan.

It shows great courage on the part of Lahiri Mahasaya that, although a high- caste Brahmin, he tried his utmost to dissolve the rigid bigotry of his time. Those from every walk of life found shelter under the master’s omnipresent wings. Like all God- inspired prophets, Lahiri Mahasaya gave new hope to the outcastes and down trodden society.

“Always remember that you belong to no one, and no one belong to you. Reflect that some day you will suddenly have to leave everything in this world– so make the acquaintanceship of God now”, the great guru told his dosciples. “prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the baloon of  God- perception.

— Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda
