Happy 90th Birthday Shree Maharajji!

90th Birthday of Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj
Sharat Poornima (शरत्‌ पूर्णिमा) is that Divine night when Radha Krishn revealed the supreme Bliss of maharas to uncountable Gopis in Vrindaban about 5,000 years ago. It is the full moon night which falls in October. This day is very precious in our lives for an additional reason as well: our beloved Shree Maharajji (Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj) appeared on that night in 1922 in Mangarh, India. Read all about Sharat Poornima and Radha Rani Rath Yatra in the following articles: part 1, part 2. Also read Shree Maharajji's Sharat Poornima message in Hindi and Sushree Braj Banchary Devi's message in English.

Early morning at 2am on the day of his birthday, devotees gather outside the room of Shree Maharajji for ecstatic kirtan which continues throughout the morning. Later, Shree Maharajji throws handfuls and handfuls of candy to all the devotees in a celebratory style. Throughout the day, devotees have the joy of Shree Kripaluji Maharaj visiting their rooms, doing charan pooja to him, continuous kirtan, arti... Later in the day, Shree Maharajji cuts a decorated cake which is lovingly prepared by devotees. In the evening, there are dances and entertaining cultural programs to celebrate the occasion.

This year, Shree Maharajji's 90th birthday will be celebrated in Mangarh.

Happy 90th Birthday 2011 to Jagadguru Kripalu Ji Maharaj
