The Universal Shaiva Fellowship is happy to announce the Mahasamadhi Celebration of our beloved Gurudev Swami Lakshmanjoo. This grand occasion will take place on Monday the 2nd, of October 2023time and details to be announced as we will broadcast this event from India.

We are taking a group to Kashmir from Oct 1st – 12th to celebrate and broadcast the Mahasamadhi and hold a four-day study retreat from the original birthplace of Kasmir Shaivism.

Swamiji left his physical frame twenty-three years ago in India, on September 27, 1991. Since that time, each year we joyously celebrate his Divine life and remember him by performing a traditional “Havan” or “Fire Ceremony” along with worship and the recitation of sacred hymns.

Kalagni Rudra's OM (trishula with staff)HAVAN (Fire Ceremony):

Swamiji’s Mahasamadhi Havan will begin at 10:30 am and will be held online. The ceremony will last approximately 3 hours.

If you would like to join us via live webcam streaming during the event please update your “interest” on our contact form to receive information closer to the event.

There is no charge for attending the Mahasamadhi celebration, but a donation to help cover the ceremonial expenses is always welcome.


On the four days following Swamiji’s Mahasamadhi Havan, the Fellowship will hold its bi-annual four-day study retreat. For more information about the retreat visit the events page.

It is a blessing for us to share this wonderful and holy day so please join us. Swamiji’s Havan celebration and retreat are always uplifting and memorable events.
