Babaji’s gradual decline continues. In this last week Babaji is eating less. His vigilant care continues 24/7. May we be joined together by our thoughts and prayers for his peace. 

We want to be certain that everyone who desires to be contacted in the event of Babaji's passing will be. To that end, we are re-publishing a letter previously posted on August 4th, 2017: 

As Babaji’s health continues to decline, many of us are asking about preparations to honor him at the time of his passing. Please know that all will be informed via this website, by email*, and by text via the Hanuman Fellowship Emergency Text** system, in the event that Babaji leaves his body. 

There will be places for us to gather for prayers, ritual observances and supportive satsang including Mount Madonna Center, Pacific Cultural Center, Sri Ram Ashram, Salt Spring Centre and Toronto Satsang. Information will be sent at the appropriate time. Per Babaji’s specific instructions we will observe all vedic rituals.

Your continued prayers for Babaji and our satsang are an honoring as well.

Wishing You Peace,

Babaji’s health has changed little over the past month. His time sleeping continues to very gradually increase. Your ongoing prayers for Babaji's peace and well being are deeply felt and appreciated.

Dear Fellowship and Satsang Friends and Community, 

In this season when Blessings and Love are especially honored, we want to express our gratitude for the selfless compassion and service that Babaji showered on all those who came to him. He guided us through the yogic teachings that he shared in classes, as well as masterfully displayed them in his every day activities. He led us in meditating, doing our work, accomplishing our goals, performing Vedic rituals, singing praise to the Divine Spirit, and playing with youthful enthusiasm and delight. His constant service for the benefit of the world and all beings in it have left us with unforgettable inspiration. 

May we continue to hold both Babaji's teachings and his example in our hearts and minds as we navigate our lives. May our prayers and gifts for his well-being remain steadfast as we honor all that he has given. 

Thank You again and again to the many who have offered support for Babaji through prayers, thoughts, and financial gifts.

Babaji health update
November 21, 2017

Dear Ones,

During this Thanksgiving season we give gratitude for our Fellowship and Satsang. Babaji's example and teachings of love and peace always inspire us, and we especially want to acknowledge it at this time. 

The fall has brought a significant decline to Babaji's physical activity. He is sleeping more, eating less, and needs much rest. In his brief time awake Babaji is alert and his eyes remain kind and responsive. His physicians say this change is normal and to be expected, and they continue to comment on the excellent care that Babaji receives.  

Please continue to send your thoughts and prayers on behalf of Babaji and his well being. Know you are welcome to join in the various Fellowship activities during this Holiday time.

Babaji Update
October 20, 2017

Babaji's health continues to be stable while his "awake and active" time very gradually decreases. His presence continues to feel loving and accepting. 

Thanks to all who send prayers, positive thoughts, and financial support for Babaji's care.

August 2017

Dear Satsang and Babaji's Well Wishers,

Babaji’s presence continues to bless and inspire. The most noticeable difference in his health condition is reduced activity. It was recently decided that his care should be under the supervision of a palliative physician. He is stable, comfortable, alert and loving but his time awake is limited. He continues to enjoy his meals and some moments of playing balloon ball. 

As Babaji’s health continues to decline, many of us are asking about preparations to honor him at the time of his passing. Please know that all will be informed via this website, by email*, and by text via the Hanuman Fellowship Emergency Text** system, in the event that Babaji leaves his body. 

There will be places for us to gather for prayers, ritual observances and supportive satsang including Mount Madonna Center, Pacific Cultural Center, Sri Ram Ashram, Salt Spring Centre, and in Toronto. Information will be sent at the appropriate time. Per Babaji’s specific instructions we will observe all vedic rituals.

Your continued prayers for Babaji and our satsang are an honoring as well,

Babaji Caregiver Group and

Panchayat

Dear Friends,

As we prepare to celebrate Guru Purnima (July 8) it is an auspicious time to honor our beloved teacher with our prayers and well wishes. Please enjoy these photos from past celebrations. 

Babaji's condition is stable, although his age and health combine to greatly limit his activity. While there is a very gradual process of decline, Babaji's presence continues to inspire peace and love. 

May we always remember his teachings of unity of purpose and peace through service, spiritual practice, and the company of fellow seekers.
