Star designated in Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's name

A star has been named Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj by the International Star Registry

Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj has always been a star in the eyes of the innumerable acolytes who receive tremendous devotional inspiration and guidance from him but what many people don't know is that there is also a star named in his honor. In a symbolic gesture, star number Orion RA 6h 14m 56s D 9' 32' was designated as "Jagadguru Shri Maharajji Kripalu 1008". The certificate was gifted to Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj via the International Star Registry, one of the oldest and most well-known star naming companies.

The text of the certificate reads

To witness whereof we hereunto set our hands and affix the seal of the International Star Registry this 25th day of December 2000.

Know ye here with that the International Star Registry doth hereby redesignate star number Orion RA 6h 14m 56s D 9' 32' to the name Jagadguru Shri Maharajji Kripalu 1008. Know ye further that this star will henceforth be known by this name. This name is permanently filed in The Registry's vault in Switzerland and recorded in a book which will be registered in the copyright office of the Unites States of America.


Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's distinction and honor as Jagadguru (Spiritual Master of the World) is already so visible in this world through his ministry and philanthropic work - isn't it befitting and symbolic that we can also get a reminder of this whenever we look at the night sky? I don't know anything about astronomy, but apparently if you look at the exact co-ordinates with a telescope, you can see the exact star! It's somewhere up there though, so send it to us if you can locate and photograph it!

Other dignitaries who have had stars named after them include Pope John Paul II, Prince Charles, Princess Diana, Her Majesty The Queen & HRH Prince Philip (of Britain), Queen Mother Elizabeth, Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi.
