Jeeva or Sajeeva Samadhi means "becoming one" with the universal consciousness or merging with God or Divine or Light. It has different terms and is used as different words in different religions. Buddhists call it Nirvana and Christians call it ecstasy or 'merging with the spirit'. Jeeva Samadhi is entirely different from Maha samadhi. In Maha samadhi the body will decay over time and the energy will leave the body upon death. In Jeeva samadhi you cannot say the body dies nor can you say it is still alive, however the energy will remain in and around the body as if it were still alive and the body will not decay over time either (or extremely slowly as in some cases). This is a state where Siddhas enters into the samadhi state at their own will after completion of their mission on earth and their mind completely dissolved into the Divine, They stop the functioning of the body and mind.

Most of the time many do not know what Jeevasamathi is. Sometimes they are just worshiped as temples. But at the same time, in today's world many fake tombs are called as Jeeva Samathi's. I take utmost care to solicit and avoid them in this e-book. This app will be Virtual Darshan for the persons who not yet visited the jeeva samadhi temples and i would like to thank the great souls who allowed to Publish. I am putting more efforts to ensure that any one who wants to visit the jeeva samadhis should have the feel of temple and easy for the new person who plans to visit the jeeva samadhi for the first time.
