Paramahamsa Hariharananda remained extensively in the West after 1990 and his work continues from headquarters on three continents: Vienna, Austria; Homestead, Florida, USA; and Jagatpur, Orissa, India.
He spent his long life studying, teaching, and fulfilling his mission to share the philosophy and technique of Kriya Yoga with the people of the world until leaving his mortal body in Miami, Florida, USA, on December 3, 2002, at 6.48 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, at the age of 95. Then on the 10th of December, his physical body left the Florida ashram, homeward bound for the distant shores of Mother India to be laid to rest with his forefathers.
The Government of Orissa had decided to accord state honors to Paramahamsa Hariharananda upon the arrival of his remains. With a solemn state honor that had never before bestowed on a monk, Paramahamsa Hariharananda was given bhusamadhi in Hariharananda Gurukulum in Balighai in the presence of thousands of monks and devotees.
Paramahamsa Hariharananda's life and teachings have been an example for his students and his worthy successor, Paramahamsa Prajnanananda, who continues to spread his master's loving message all over the world. The legacy of this great master lives on through the love and lives of his students.
