Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat to Present 3 Special Programs in New Jersey (Oct/Nov 2011)

Swami Nikhilanand, disciple of Jagadguru Kripaluji MaharajA special opportunity to experience the timeless Divine wisdom of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj in three, one-day lecture series by Swami Nikhilanand, a pracharak of JKP Radha Madhav Dham.

Swami Nikhilanand has studied the philosophy of Divine love with the guidance of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, a renowned and respected Spiritual Master. In his talks, Swami Nikhilanand weaves a colorful tapestry of wisdom and Spiritual insight and carefully guides participants to open their hearts to experience inner joy and happiness. His voice leads participants in chantings that are imbued with vibrations of Divine love. Thousands of people throughout North America have benefited from Swami Nikhilanand's unique presentations and workshops.

1. The 3 Goals of Human Life: Bhukti, Mukti & Bhakti (New Jersey, Oct 30th, 2011)

Bhukti, Mukti and bhakti by Swami Nikhilanand, pracharak of Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj
The program includes Sanskrit shlokas and beautiful bhajans of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj which touch the heart and inspire Divine love which goes deep into the heart of the listeners.

Swami Nikhilanand explains that we should never ever desire for bhukti or mukti (worldly luxuries and liberation from maya). Worldly attainments (including celestial attainments) can never satisfy the soul so they are pointless. Mukti is equally useless because the one who has received mukti can never receive the chance to enjoy the bliss of the Divine leelas and association of Bhagwan.

Swami Nikhilanand concludes that the only desire a true devotee should have is to serve your Divine Beloved Radha Krishn (bhakti), since there is no fourth catagory of desire other than bhukti, mukti or bhakti... Thus bhakti, including the desire for seva, is the only spiritual goal of the soul.

2. The importance of Human Life (New Jersey, Nov 13th, 2011)

Discourse by disciple of Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj
Enlightening discourse and beautiful kirtan with Swami Nikhilanand, pracharak of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj and sanyasi teacher at JKP Radha Madhav Dham.

The purpose of human life is to attain God. Every human desires happiness, and only God is perfect happiness. Every soul naturally desires happiness because he is eternally related to God, Who Himself is perfect happiness. God, Who is omnipresent in His eternal Divine personal form, is all-kind, all-loving, all-Gracious and all-beautiful. Out of His extreme loving kindness to all the souls, He instantly reveals Himself to anyone whenever a person wholeheartedly surrenders to Him in total love and dedication. Thus, this theme of ‘God realization through bhakti’ has been the focusing point of all Bhartiya scriptures.

3. The Science of Desires (New Jersey, Nov 13th, 2011)

Discourse by disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji MaharajEnlightening discourse and beautiful kirtan with Swami Nikhilanand, pracharak of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj and sanyasi teacher at JKP Radha Madhav Dham

If our desire for something is strong enough, we will do a wrong action to get that thing, even though we know it is wrong. If our anger is strong enough, we will do a wrong action, even though we know it is wrong. Due to the effect of kam and krodh, although it is wrong, we don't care and we decide to do it anyway. Kam and krodh are inherent in a material mind. Our mind is made of maya. Maya has three qualities: sattva, raj, and tam (good, selfish and bad). Kam and krodh are natural manifestations of rajogun. Thus, as long you have a material mind (a mind made of mayic energy), those three qualities of maya will remain.

Kam and krodh can only be completely eliminated by eliminating maya, and maya can only be eliminated with God's Grace. So to eliminate kam and krodh, we must do bhakti to receive God's Grace. Bhakti is the only permanent cure for kam and krodh.
