Shradhanjali to Respected Smt Kamla Advaniji
A beautiful green tribute was led and blessed by Pujya Swamiji at Parmarth Niketan RIshikesh today in memory of Late Smt Kamla Advaniji.
Mananiya Shri LK Advaniji and his family arrived to the Dehradun Airport and were received by Pujya Swamiji and Pujya Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji.
Respected Shri LK Advaniji first reached the Har Ki Pauri ghat with Pujya Swamiji and his family to perform the last rites ceremony at this sacred ghat.
Then they arrived to Rishikesh to offer their bhavanjali and pushpanjali on the banks of Mother Ganga at Parmarth Niketan, as was the last wish of Smt Kamla Advaniji. She loved the River Ganga, the divine Ganga Aarti and was deeply connected to Parmarth, as it was her very own Himalayan home and she had visited it frequently with her family.
Pujya Swamiji ensured that her beautiful, divine and loving soul was given a green memorial by the plantation of a sacred Rudraksha sapling at the feet of the iconic Lord Shiva statue in the Parmarth Yoga Garden. Also blessing the memorial plantation and the Ganga Aarti was Pujya Acharya MM Avdheshanand Giriji Maharaj.
Pujya Swamiji shared so many beautiful words to honour the spirit and the essence of Late Smt Kamla Advaniji, especially mentioning how many people she had touched and inspired by her unconditional and bountiful love and affection. He shared that although her physical presence would be greatly missed, she was ever present with us and that ‘she had not actually gone, but she was on, just like Mother Ganga, flowing with compassion and love for all.”
Pujya Acharya MM Avdheshanand Giriji Maharaj also offered his homage comparing her life to the life of a sacred tree, in which all aspects of the tree are truly for the welfare of all. He shared how Smt Kamlaji’s own life was so dedicated and devoted to the welfare of all and supporting her husband in every step of the way in service of the nation.
Mananiya Advaniji expressed his gratitude for the divine shradhanjali ceremony and the blessings offered by all the revered and respected saints. He shared that his trip to Rishikesh had filled him with hope to continue his service to the nation and the courage to deeply miss his beloved wive’s physical presence but living with his shakti, the timeless, ever-present essence of his wife, within him.
Hon’ble Water Resources Ministry for Ganga Rejuvenation, Umashri Bhartiji, also joined for the special Ganga Aarti dedicated to divine soul Smt Kamla Advaniji.
