The Art of Dying
Death with Dignity, Conscious Dying and End of Life Issues
Paramahansa Yogananda—"The Last Smile"
A photograph taken an hour before his mahasamadhi (a yogi's
final conscious exit from the body); at a banquet held in honor
of Ambassador Binay R. Sen of India, March 7, 1952, in Los Angeles,
The photographer has here caught a loving smile that appears to be a
farewell benediction for each one of the master's millions of friends,
students, and disciples. The eyes that already were gazing into
Eternity are yet full of human warmth and understanding.
Death had no power of disintegration over this incomparable devotee
of God; his body manifested a phenomenal state of immutability.
