At the beginning of the next chapter, the author says: Just like when a temple is being built, first the chowks and sittings etc. are proved. And finally the climax is built. That is when the temple is truly complete. Similarly, Sri Swami Charitra Saramrit will not be complete without writing the Kalsaadhyaya of this biographical book.So the writers are narrating this last chapter for the devotees.
With the intention of ending his human incarnation now, Shri Swami achieved his Nirvana by concentrating his mind on the occasion of Shake eighteen hundred Purna, Bahudhanya Samvatsara, Mas Chaitra, Krishna Paksha, Trayodashi on Tuesday and Fourth Prahara. And became personally involved. Piercing the Brahmarandhra, the Atman Jyot passed out from the heart and merged into space.
The attendants who were nearby were greatly distressed. Poet says, I am finding it very difficult to describe the various types of mourning performed by Sevakaris. If that mourning is described in detail, the writing of this book will spread like the sea.
