Today we have the glorification ceremony of HH Sridhara Swami Maharaja one day after his passing away from this material world and going back to serve the lotus feet of His Guru Maharaja Srila Prabhupada and Sri Sri Panca Tattva Bhagavan.

Here are pictures of the Deities in Mayapur and the Samadhi ceremony of HH Sridhara Swami.

Many senior devotees are present in this occasion like Bhakti Caru Swami, Gopal Krsna Goswami, Sivarama Swami, Lokanath Swami, Gunagarahi Swami, Subhaga Swami, BB Govinda Swami, Bhakti Purusottama Swami, the brother of Sridhar Swami and other Srila Prabhupada disciples. Brajahari prabhu came yesterday from Bombay for this occasion. Hari Sauri das prabhu is acting as master of ceremonies for today's program.

The glorification ceremony has the participation of Maharaja's godbrothers and godsisters as well as the disciples of Sridhara Swami who are present in Mayapur. We have also received a few eulogy offerings that were printed and handed to the devotees in charge of this ceremony.
