Appaji, we love you and we wish You a very safe journey home. My husband, Shiva Jeremiah and I were very humbled to be in Your Divine Presence and to receive Your Darshan. Appaji, these words we are sure echo the words of several others. Appaji we love You and are happy to be in Your service.

To conclude this post, I share this video from Hanuman Hoffman whom I was privileged to meet, as I thoroughly enjoy the his manner of spreading and sharing Sri Swamiji’s messages, bhajans and teachings. Appaji we love You and to all our Dattatreya family we love you! -Shiva and Rachael! Jai Guru Datta!
