Lalita Maauli lived a life of a
hermit throughout. Many spiritual seekers came to her and sought
spiritual guidance and blessings. Maauli left her mortal coil on
5th February 1997. As per Maauli’s Will, a Private Trust was formed
by seven devotees whose names were suggested by Maauli in the Will.
Soon after, one of the trustees Shri Devdas Nayak, a civil engineer,
undertook the total renovation and restructuring of the Gurukul
with the help of others, and the present structure is a result of
his selfless service, hard work and dedication. He took sanyasa
and lived in the himalayas from 2002. He expired on 14th August
2005 after a prolonged illness.
On 30th April 1998, on Shankar
Jayanti day, the Samadhi Mandir of Maauli was inaugurated at the
hands of Swami Dattananda of Bhiwani , Ganeshpuri. Along with
other rituals, Maha Vishnu Yaag was also performed.

was celebrated on Akshaya Tritiya day, 30th April in 2006 with great spiritual
fervour. There were kirtans and discourses by eminent scholars.
