Glen Oaks, New York: This September 5th 2015, New York's newest mandir is gearing up for it's second Krishna Janmashtami celebration. The one-of-a-kind event has quickly become a biggest and most anticipated Indian event in the region. Last year's Krishna Janmashtami Block Party attracted a sizable 1300 festival-goers. With the outpouring of excitement on social media the crowd is expected to be much bigger this year.

Radha Govind Dham is the newest mandir on the New York skyline. It is inspired by the great Saints of Vrindavan like Jeev Goswami, Haridas Ji, Hit Harivansh Ji, Vallabhacharya Ji and our beloved Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj. In it's short history Radha Govind Dham has become a thriving center of devotion, spiritual knowledge and peace. It is quickly becoming a hub of the community.

The Janmashtami Block Party is an opportunity for the New York community to learn the real meaning of Krishna's Birthday and say happy Birthday to the Lord, along with

- Experiencing favorite Indian foods
- Delicious drinks like roohafza milkshake and authentic hot chai, 
- Lively and colorful dance performances on the outdoor stage
- Taking part in Dandia / Garba
- Listening to live Janmashtami bhajans by well-known preachers and artists 
- The much anticipated Best Dressed Krishna Contest
- A raffle with cool prizes
- Hearing from pracharaks of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj

The block adjacent to Radha Govind Dham is closed off to traffic especially for the big event. Help put Radha Govind Dham on the map by notifying friends in New York to not miss out on the festivities. What greater gift can we give to friends than inviting them to the Lord's Birthday Party! There is something for everyone.

With just a few days to go, take a moment to make some calls, send some emails, and invite your Facebook friends to RSVP via the official event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1457088884613230/

Kripalu Ji Maharaj has not initiated anyone

Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj
Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj only Graces

Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj only Graces

You will be surprised to hear that Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj, who has unparalleled spiritual knowledge and who is always absorbed in the Divine love of God, has neither initiated anyone nor given a 'mantra' in anyone's ears. He only Graces.

Process of becoming a disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj

Anyone desiring to attain Radha Krishna in this life is qualified to follow the path of bhakti as taught by Shree Kripaluji Maharaj; this includes householders. However, Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj does not formally initiate devotees. He is willing to Grace anyone who accepts him in their heart. It all happens internally: you accept him as your Guru, and start following the path according to his teachings, and he will Grace you and help you to proceed. 

There is no formality required. If you accept him, he has already accepted you, even if you have never physically met him. Now all that is left is to proceed on the path with the faith that he is already Gracing you. When, through the path of bhakti, your heart is fully purified, then he could Grace you with God realization. This is the true or final initiation which takes place once a devotee has become qualified (by completing his heart purification). This is how Kripaluji Maharaj has described the Guru-disciple relationship and the process of initiation.
