The passing of Padma Bhushan Swami Satyamitranand Giriji Maharaj is a tremendous loss for India and the world. His love for humanity was not limited in any narrow confines and his vision of the Bharat Mata Mandir in Haridwar reflects his worldview. His services to the tribles and poor will continue to inspire many.
Swami Satyamitranand Giriji Maharaj had met His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj many times, and both shared a profound friendship and a mutual respect for each other as spiritual leaders.
I pay respectful homage and tributes to the pious soul of Param Pujya Swami Satyamitranand Giriji Maharaj.”
