His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj departed his mortal body on Saturday, August 13, 2016, at the age of 95. Personifying his motto, "In the joy of others, lies our own,” he dedicated his entire life to serve and inspire others for the greater good of mankind. Throughout his life, his selfless compassion and humble prayers uplifted countless people and led thousands on the path of spirituality by inspiring these same principles. Even today, this message resonates with millions of individuals from all walks of life and around the world.
To celebrate Pramukh Swami Maharaj and his life’s work, tribute assemblies were held throughout North America during the month of September. Appropriately themed “Timeless Tributes to the Life & Legacy of HH Pramukh Swami Maharaj”, the program sampled a collection of his video blessings and interactions with countless individuals through short speeches from those he inspired to lead a more fulfilling, spiritually-centric life. Through memorable life experiences shared by these individuals, thousands of attendees across North America were able to reminisce upon Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s compassionate and equipoised nature. The program concluded with inspiring video blessings from Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s successor, His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj.
