Samadhi

There is very nice book by HH Mahanidhi Swami called Gaudiya Vaisnava Samadhis in Vrndavana. Below is little sample which helps us to appreciate the sacredness of Samadhis (tombs) of Vaisnava saints. It speaks on: The Grave Yard, Mrytu Mahal, Darsana Stories, How to Approach the Samadhis— Union in Separation, Prayers at the Samadhis, The Mood of Prayer, Qualification to Receive Benefits, Serve the Dust, Places of Inspiration, Samadhis Reform Japa, Avirbhava Equals Tirobhava, Daily Worship at the Samadhis, Tirobhava Mahotsava (yearly disappearance celebration), How to Observe a Tirobhava.
