Dear All,

Hari Om!

Swami Yogasthananda of Chinmaya Navin Sevashram, Prayagraj, took final refuge at the feet of Pujya Gurudev at approximately 1:00 PM yesterday, 27 January 2021, at age 88.

He had participated in Pujya Gurudev’s camps and facilitated study groups for many years. He attended the Vedanta Course at Sandeepany Sadhanalaya, Mumbai, in 1989-1991, where he studied under Pujya Swami Purushottamananda. In 2011, he received Sannyasa Deeksha from Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda.

Swami Yogasthananda had great commitment towards the activities of Central Chinmaya Vanaprastha Sansthan. He was also very dedicated to the practice and teaching of Yoga for more than 50 years. He taught more than 150 courses on Vanaprastha and Yoga, in over 60 towns and cities in India.

Swami Yogasthananda’s tireless seva will continue to inspire those he came into contact with.

Our respectful homage to Swami Yogasthananda.

At His Feet,

Swami Swaroopananda
