Establishing a Satsang Hall at Prem Mandir, Vrindavan

Aaj Ki Khabar news report about the foundation stone ceremony of the massive new satsang hall being built next to Prem Mandir, and Jagadguru Dham. The new satsang hall, to be inaugurated in 2012 will be one of the two largest halls in the world (the other will be in Mangarh).

The foundation stone of the satsang hall of holy temple Prem Mandir situated at Vrindavan Ramanreti Chetra was laid by Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj on March 1, 2011. Thousands of devotees witnessed this precious moment.

This massive satsang hall will be opened by 2012; and will encourage devotion towards Radha Krishn to spiritual seekers around the world. This is one of two largest satsang halls in the world. The area of this satsang hall is approx 73,000 square feet; and there is no pillar. The satsang hall is circular shaped, and the distance between two walls is about 275 square feet. Approx 25,000 devotees can worship at a time.

The land worship program was started at 9:30 am and ended at 10:25 in the presence of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj. Soon after this, Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj flew on his helicopter for Allahabad at 10:45 am. The main attraction of the program was the grand arti, which was done by Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's eldest son Ghanshyam Tripathiji. Thousands of devotees witnessed the whole program. When the news crew went to ask the devotees for their views about the temple, they all were mesmerized in offering worship.

Jagadguru Dham, established on 55 acres of land on the outskirts of Vrindaban, was completed in 1992. Sushree Shyama Tripathi is the president. Its peaceful atmosphere and beautiful gardens of jasmine and roses is a world away from the bustle of Vrindaban. This ashram is now being developed into a major facility for devotional programs, including this enormous satsang hall, guest accommodations and facilities, a large charitable hospital, kitchen and dining, educational exhibits and theater. It is located next to Prem Mandir Temple, Vrindavan.
