As we commemorate the Mahasamadhi Day of our beloved Gurudev Baba Hariharananda, on 3 December, we recall a very special feature of this great soul — his humility and love. He could be softer than a flower and sometimes, harder than steel. His speech was lilting and charming. He was like a child with children, a friend to the young, a companion to the old and distressed, and an inspiration to all. But he was always humble. For each of his disciples, he was an example of perfect humility.
Although monasteries are an old system in all religions, an ashram is a quite new concept in the West. The practice of living in an ashram appeared in the West with Swami Vivekananda, then later with our beloved master Paramahamsa Yoganandaji, and today ashrams contain people of many spiritual backgrounds.
