Diwakari Devi of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat at Hindu Centre in Grande Prairie Canada

The Canadian Hindu Cultural Centre in Grande Prairie will be welcoming Sushree Diwakari Devi, disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj and vice president of Radha Madhav Dham to daily lectures for a week beginning Sunday, April 6.

Diwakari Devi of Radha Madhav Dham

Sushree Diwakari Devi of Radha Madhav Dham is a sanyasi  disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj who has lectured extensively throughout Canada, America, New Zealand, and Ireland, and she will be the first speaker to ever come to the Canadian Hindu Cultural Centre.

This is a brand new temple and this is the first time we are having a speaker come from out of town, or that matter, from anywhere, said Ratna Roy, a founding member of the Canadian Hindu Cultural Centre.

Roy explained that the temple doesn’t particularly have a priest, which makes the appearance of Sushree Diwakari Devi of Radha Madhav Dham that much more exciting for the temple, which was inaugurated in July of 2013.

Roy also mentioned how important it is because the temple is likely the only one north of Edmonton.

Not only is it important for the community of Grande Prairie, but also for the people around the town like in Dawson Creek and higher up, said Roy.

The lectures will feature beautiful Hindu devotional songs called bhajans, as well as inspirational talks from Diwakari Devi of Radha Madhav Dham.

She sings very good bhajans, revealed by Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj and she’s bringing a harmonium. She’ll sing the devotional songs, and after that there will be a little time for the audience to talk to her and bring up any specialty questions that anybody may have.

Open to all

While the Hindu community will be lifted with pride from the lectures, Roy was very clear that the lectures would be relatable for people of all religions due to the topics being very general and broad.

We’re all kind of in the same boat. We want to know how to deal with stress, how to be a better human being, and how can we make life better, explained Roy.

That’s exactly what she is going to discuss. I think it’s very helpful and important at the same time for all of us.

Sushree Diwakari Devi has studied the deepest aspects of the philosophy of Divine Love, Sanskrit scriptures and devotional music of India under the guidance of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj. Her speeches inspire listeners with devotional love for Radha Krishna, known within Hinduism as the combination of both the feminine as well as the masculine aspects of God.

She doesn’t have any family. She has renounced everything in order to study (the philosophies). She’s got a lot to offer, said Roy.

Aside from Sunday’s lecture which begins at 10 a.m. and concludes at noon, each lecture will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, April 7 to Saturday, April 12.

Sunday’s service will include a lunch, while the weekday services will also include a supper.

The lectures are titled Quest of the Soul, Science of Material Desires, How to Conquer Material Desires, Path of Bhakti, Bliss of the Divine Name, Meditation, and Devotion in Daily Life.

Diwakari Devi is the Vice President of JKP, Radha Madhav Dham, a large temple and ashram complex located on over 200 acres of scenic land in the Hill Country south of Austin, Texas.

Radha Madhav Dham was founded in 1990 under the name Barsana Dham, and sees over 50,000 people visit per year.

The lectures are free of charge, but donations are accepted and greatly appreciated.

Everybody is welcome to come and please bring friends and families because it’s an opportunity for everybody to spend time with such a devoted soul.

Austin, April 2nd 2014 (Vrindavan Times): Austin has patiently waited for the warm, soft rains to come and tantalize the bluebonnets to blanket the meadows again. If you drive out on FM 1826 in the Hill Country, the wildflowers at  Radha Madhav Dham, the US ashram of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj, are out in abundance. Below grey skies a lazy light falls on scattered beds of flowers, making room for the Golden Groundsels and the Giant purple Spiderworts. In the meadows of Radha Madhav Dham they sing: “Jai, Jai, Jai, Jai!” Just as the sun hits Barsana Hill, you can walk down the center path past Radha Kund; just before Prem Sarovar pond and Govardhan Hill, there’s a meadow of Radha Madhav Dham wildflowers that, if you try hard enough, you can hear them singing faintly with the warm breeze. The green is back and colors abound. Radha Madhav Dham was founded by Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj in 1990.

Jagadguru Kripalu Ji Maharaj Mein Kaun Mera Kaun has been released
Main Kaun? Mera Kaun? series of Jagadguru Kripalu Ji Maharaj has been released


Main Kaun? Mera Kaun?

“Every living being in the entire universe is attempting to arrive at the solution for a single question. What is it? ‘Who am I and who is mine?’ That’s all. You will be astonished to hear this question thinking that everyone knows the reply. That is not the case. Very few people know the right answer, maybe one in millions. So this is something we too need to know . . .”

With this opening statement made on 20 October 2009, Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj commenced what was to become an unprecedented expose of the divine science, concluding it on 14 October 2011 after delivering 103 discourses. Scholars, Saints, intellectuals, skeptics and every day people watched with mouths open at the scriptural omniscience and divinity of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj when these discourses were shown on television, and now with the release of the official transcripts, the entire world is about to do the same.

Main Kaun? Mera Kaun? is an incredibly rich and diverse spiritual resource, overflowing with references and analogies from hundreds of the world’s great sacred texts and spiritual teachers. Presented authoritatively in Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj's own inimitable style, the profoundest of subject matter becomes accessible to all! Anyone who is interested in gaining a complete understanding of the answers to all the questions behind the ultimate aim of life, will find tremendous solace and inspiration in the pages of these five beautifully presented volumes.

Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj explanation leaves no stone unturned. He pays the utmost respect to all spiritual paths and faiths, while at the same time upholding the spiritual and cultural heritage of India, before comprehensively dispelling all doubts and confusion once and for all. Using the tool of reconciliation, Shree Maharaj Ji shows the world that there only ever was, is and only ever will be one path to the attainment of God, happiness, bliss, or any other name or word one wishes to ascribe, and that is selfless loving devotion and service to our Beloved Lord.

Each volume contains approximately twenty speech transcripts with full scriptural references included within the text. At the back of each volume, there is a list of all the shlokas pertaining to that volume that is intended to assist readers to find a resource with relative ease.

Main Kaun? Mera Kaun? is a priceless spiritual treasure and one that belongs in the hands of any inquisitive spiritual aspirant.
