A trip to Vrindavan with Kripaluji Maharaj

See also: Kripaluji Maharaj in Mangarh

JKP Shyama Shyam Dham Ashram Vrindavan, founded by Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji MaharajYesterday, Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, our Shree Maharajji, announced that he would go to Vrindavan for the night. Taxis filled with devotees followed alongside from Barsana Dham to the JKP Shyama Shyam Dham ashram. In the evening time, we had beautiful satsang with Shree Maharajji, to the backdrop of a magnificantly decorated stage ready for Janmashtmi.

Early next morning, Shree Kripaluji Maharaj took us all on a picnic to JKP Jagadguru Dham where we enjoyed lively kirtan followed by a snack of samosas and sweets. After some more kirtan, and after Kripaluji Maharaj made several house visits, we all returned back to Barsana Dham.

With the temples, monuments and leela places of Radha Krishn, Vrindavan is alive with their presence.

Ashram of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji MaharajAbove, JKP Shyama Shyam Dham ashram. Shyama Shyam Dham Samiti was founded by Sushree Vishakha Tripathi under the Divine protectorship of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj in 1978. A nikunj-like garden inspires devotional imaginings of when Radha Krishn walked upon the holy ground of Vrindavan. Shyama Shyam Dham is a beautiful double story building. Clad with black granite, it has two large dormitories on both sides of the spacious satsang hall and rooms for preachers and the devotees. There are also over 100 rooms which have been made for the devotees who come to attend the satsang of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj.

JKP Jagadguru Dham AshramAbove, JKP Jagadguru Dham, Vrindavan lies on 6 acres of of land in the peaceful outskirts of Vrindavan. Morning and evening satsang of kirtan and arti are held in the upstairs Temple area. It has a satsang hall, devotion hall, dormitory and over thirty guest rooms. It is surrounded by a garden of perfumed flowers and beautiful lawns. You feel the holiness of the place as you enter the gate and you observe the Divinity of Shree Maharajji’s Grace as you enter the lobby and have the opportunity to have darshan of Radha Krishn Deities in the devotion hall on the upper floor of the building where you can sit and meditate and feel the presence of Shree Radha Rani and Krishn near you.

Radhe Radhe GuruJi,
How can I forget my last visit to Rangili Mahal, Barsana Dham U.P.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to meet Guruji because he was in Mangardh in January 2011.I want to join the sankirtan first. What is the process,because I live in Chicago, il. I met Dr. Rajkishore who showed us the prayer hall, Garden, satsang hall dining hall etc. It was a beautifull experience. Thanks,
Neeru from Chicago

Radhey Radhey Neeru,

I forwarded your question to Swami Nikhilanand, a pracharak of Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj in Texas and has asked if you have a mailing address to which he can to which he can send you our Daily Sadhana package to get you started?

We don't have a center in Chicago with regular satsang, although occasionally one of Shree Maharajji's pracharaks may visit the area. He said that the best thing for you to do will be to come and spend some time at Barsana Dham ashram (in Austin, TX) and to start doing sadhana on your own at home. That will prepare you to meet Shree Maharajji.

Please give me your email address so I can send you Swami Nikhilanand's email address and phone number so you can speak to him directly about your questions if you want.
