      Om Namo Bhagavate Sivanandaya!

      Namaste!

      Today (Sept. 24) is the 85th birthday anniversary of beloved and
      worshipful Guru Maharaj Sri Swami Chidanandaji. In celebration of Guru
      Maharaj's birthday we have uploaded a short autobiographical sketch by
      Guru Maharaj titled "Beloved Papa And Sri Gurudev In My Life". This
      article was reprinted from Anandashram's monthly magazine, The Vision.
      There are a lot of details here from Guru Maharaj's early days. This
      inspiring article is at:
      http://www.SivanandaDlshq.org/saints/chidapapa.htm

      Attached below is Sri Swami Chinmayanandaji Maharaj's opinion of Guru
      Maharaj.

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,

      Pannir

      -----------------------------------------------------

      Swami Chinmayananda, the illustrious saint-scholar, was giving a series
      of discourses on Gita during his Gita Jnana Yajna at Lucknow in 1977. In
      course of his talk he dealt with the characteristics of a Sthita Prajna,
      the ideal Godman of the holy scripture. At the end of the talk Prof.
      Varma who was, indeed, very much impressed, sought an interview with
      Chinmayanandaji and put the straight question--Is the ideal Godman of
      Gita a mere scriptural representation or a living reality? Is there
      anybody in India today who may fittingly be called a Sthita Prajna? The
      erudite monk who is not given to easy praise paused for a moment and
      then replied with all seriousness and solemnity--Yes. There are such
      great ones. One is Mother Anandamayi and the other is Swami Chidananda.
      One should behold them and get sanctified.
