Celebrating Sanyal Mahasaya’s Life
Shrimat Bhupendranath Sanyal Mahasaya was born on January 20, 1877, in the village of Sadhana Para in the holy district of Nadia in West Bengal, India. From his early childhood, Sanyal Mahasaya was spiritually inclined. In 1893, at the tender age of sixteen, Sanyal Mahasaya was initiated into Kriya Yoga by Shri Lahiri Mahasaya. With deep devotion and love, with humility and surrender, he followed each word and instruction of his master. In a short period of time he progressed rapidly in his spiritual life. In 1902, Shri Sanyal Mahasaya reached the state of self-realization and was established in ever blissful state of God consciousness.
He founded, along with Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, the institution at Shantiniketan which later became the famous Viswabharati University. He established Gurudham, an ashram in Puri, to guide and teach sincere seekers into the path of Kriya Yoga. On the 18th of January, 1962, Shri Sanyal Mahasaya entered mahasamadhi. Although he was a householder with six children, he devoted his whole life to spiritual practice and the spreading of Kriya Yoga. He was a silent worker, a great Yogi, a divine guide and Guru, an educator, and a true lover of mankind.
