A Brief Introduction
Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj, founder of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat, was a God Realised Saint whose entire life was dedicated to inspiring souls on the path of devotion to God. Through enlightening discourses and chanting of the holy name, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj (lovingly called Shri Maharaj Ji by His devotees) made unceasing efforts to reveal the true philosophy from the Vedic scriptures to mankind in the simplest form possible so that they may attain their true goal of God Realisation. Mankind was privileged to have his physical association on this planet earth from 1922 to 2013.
Honoured with titles such as ‘The Supreme Spiritual Master of the World’, ‘Descension of Divine Love and Bliss’, ‘Eminent Propounder of Eternal Vedic Religion’ and ‘Reconciler of all Seemingly Contradictory Philosophical Views of the World’, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj truly was the personified form of divine love. His natural scholarliness inspired trust in even the greatest intellectuals, while his tremendous love, causeless grace and endless compassion melted the hearts and inspired devotional love in all who came near him. His satsang was divinely exhilarating and unbelievably joyous.
His tall, stately and regal, yet childlike personality, had an indefinable attraction that drew all to Him, whether young or old, men or women, and of any country or language. The all-satisfying love that emanated from Him made each person feel the affection of a parent, friend and teacher, all in one.
His divine effulgence shined through all He said, all He did and all He was. Each and every seeker was amazed to see how approachable He was and enjoyed the special privilege of receiving individual attention from Him. Thus, He made each person feel that they belonged to Him. True to His name “Kripalu”, He was the very “Ocean of Grace”.
