Samadhi Shrine of Sri Yukteswar

Sri Yukteswar's samadhi (tomb) inside of the temple.
Sri Yukteswarji consciously left his physical body in Puri ashram on March 9, 1936, while his dearest disciple, Paramahansa Yogananda was traveling in India.
Heartbroken, Yoganandaji conducted the ancient burial rites for his beloved guru. Sri Yukteswarji's body, still seated in lotus posture, was lowered into the crypt, facing the holy Jagannath Temple.
