Evening discourse by Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj and his arrival in Kishangarh


Rain cascaded like celestial rivers and lightening bolted with unyielding ire on Monday night in Rajasthan, but inside Radha Govind Dham's overflowing satsang hall, the faithful were seated in pindrop silence as Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj delivered a powerful and meaningful discourse.

Seated on an asan decorated with flowers and fine cloth of striking colours, Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj's discourse was highly anticipated from the outset. Bejeweled with sanskrit verses and sharp logic, Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj's discourse discussed the eternal question of why we desire happiness and how to find it.

It would be the last night at Radha Govind Dham because next morning, buses filled with devotees travelled to the nearby city of Kishangarh where Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj was greeted with a most unique welcome.

Visably affected and smiling in adoration on the arrival of their beloved Master, devotees at the Kishangarh ashram greeted Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj with hearty welcoming songs. Local devotees took turns to dance for Shree Kripaluji Maharaj in impromptu style, to his sweet amusement as he jestfully beckoned them to dance more and more and more.

The Kishangarh ashram is a beautiful building with large open spaces and decororated white marble flooring and attractive furnishings. Jigsawed with the ashram building is a beautiful covered garden with plants with leaves of various green nuances and charming textures. A delicate breeze of rose flowers of red, pink and white palettes become infused in the nectarean melodies being sung, making the garden a most joyous and serene place to meditate (http://www.jkp.org/devotion/remembrance.html) and have kirtan with Shree Maharajji, which continues throughout the day.
