JKP at a Glance

Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat (JKP), previously known as Sadhna Bhawan Trust, was established in 1970 by Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj and continues to run today under his divine guidance, with leadership from the three Presidents he appointed.

As a non-profit, charitable, educational and spiritual organisation, dedicated to increasing spiritual awareness, JKP works tirelessly to disseminate the teachings of Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj throughout the world. Following a clearly defined

set of aims and objectives (see below), JKP is also actively involved in a range of charitable projects and activities. JKP’s expansion has been necessary to cater for the growing number of people seeking spiritual guidance and support, in addition to the broader social welfare issues facing people at large. Consequently, JKP is involved in an ever increasing number of charitable activities coinciding with its ongoing spiritual programmes.

JKP’S MISSION

TO TEACH AND SPREAD THE TRUE ETERNAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE VEDAS in the simplest form, and to guide and inspire seekers to attain their true goal of God-realisation.

TO ORGANIZE SPIRITUAL CAMPS AND RETREATS that demonstrate practical devotion to spiritual aspirants.

TO ESTABLISH, OPERATE AND MAINTAIN CHARITABLE PROJECTS for deprived communities in rural villages in both educational and medical fields.

TO CONDUCT VARIOUS PHILANTHROPIC AND HUMANITARIAN ACTIVITIES to meet the immediate needs of the poor and the needy in the society.

Dear Visitor,

Human beings of the current age (time) do not heed to the welfare of their own souls. They are becoming more and more restless since they consider themselves to be the physical body and thus, are running after the material world just in order to obtain transient happiness.

“In such a materialistic world, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj is paving the path to peace by binding everyone with the thread of universal brotherhood, through His message of Divine love to the entire world. At the same time, He has paved the path for both physical and spiritual welfare of the individual souls by establishing a large organisation like Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat.”

The organisation has been rendering social services through various social activities performed at a regular basis. The organisation is endeavouring various praiseworthy works in the fields of medicine, education, and for the welfare of women and upliftment of society at large.

Several constructions are being carried out under the auspices of the organisation; a huge sadhna (meditation) hall in Mangarh, a charitable hospital, as well as another grand sadhna hall in Vrindavan, and Kirti Mandir in Barsana. All the construction work are not only going to be beneficial in the future, but also has been providing employment to thousands of local labourers.

We seek the blessings at the lotus feet of Radha Krishna and our Gurudev Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj to provide their divine guidance in carrying forward the spiritual and humanitarian works of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat.

Yours,
Vishaka, Shyama & Krishna

Devotional Activities

Come and be part of the different devotional activities & events held at JKP every year. Its a wonderful opportunity too boost your sadhana and get fuelled with devotional knowledge that will help you on your path to God.

SADHNA SHIVIR

Sadhna Shivir is a devotional camp in which the devotees disconnect themselves from their regular worldly duties and responsibilities and isolate themselves to practice absorbing their mind in the comtemplation of God, and to perform service to God and Guru. These devotional camps are held twice a year – the annual month long sadhna program during October-November and the two-week long spring sadhna program held in March. Shri Maharaj Ji’s discourses are played multiple times during the day to reinforce spiritual knowledge and the key concepts of devotional practice. Devotional plays are performed by devotees depicting pastimes of Radha Krishna. Hindu festivals such as Divali, Holi, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu Jayanti, Govardhan Pooja, Sharad Poornima are celebrated during the sadhana program. Medical camps and health camps are also organised during the camps.

Public Speeches

PUBLIC SPEECHES

During his divine presence on this earth planet, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj used to deliver series of public speeches, where thousands of people used to gather to listen to His divine teachings. He used to simplify even the most perplexing knowledge from the scriptures with great ease and clarity, and disclosed the guidelines to everyone on how to attain their ultimate goal of human life. The ease with which He used to narrate quotations from the scriptures, along with their chapter and verse numbers, supporting the concepts that he was explaining, was incredible. Recordings of his public speeches are now broadcasted daily on TV.

festivals

FESTIVALS

Shri Maharaj Ji explained that the only purpose of celebrating any social or religious festival is to engage the mind in devotion to God. JKP celebrates all major Hindu festivals with joy and enthusiasm. Even some non-Hindu festivals such as Eid and Christmas are also celebrated at JKP ashrams. Devotional songs related to the festival are sung throughout the day. Video recordings of Shri Maharaj Ji explaining the devotional aspect of the festivals are also shown. On some occasions, pastimes of Shri Radha Krishna related to the festival are depicted in the form of stage play by the devotees.

Selfless Service

SELFLESS SERVICE

In addition to engaging in devotional practice, Shri Maharaj Ji teaches and encourages devotees to perform physical and monetary service. Majority of people who have dedicated their lives to Radha Krishna devotion engage themselves in voluntary service at the JKP ashrams. These include doctors, nurses and other hospital staff who render their services voluntarily at Jagadguru Kripalu Chikitsalaya (JKP Hospitals). Also, many devotees volunteer their time to serve in other ways such as office, cleaning and management.
