The Grace of the Master shines in the heart of a devotee as the blissful experience of Radha Krishn love. The following are some experiences from past participants of the akhand namsankirtan:

I remember in one of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's speeches, he said our mind is impure because of our material attachments, and it can be purified through continuous remembrance of Radha Krishn. He said, in the beginning, we have to do some effort to keep the mind engaged in remembrance, and slowly, affinity for the name of Radha Krishn is developed. Through the 12-hour “Hare Ram” sankirtan, these teachings helped me to increase my affinity for Radha Krishn.

After immersing myself in the 12-hour chanting at Radha Madhav Dham, I felt such a devotional upfliftment, my devotional mind had been revitalized. I felt Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj closer to me than ever before and I also felt such a deep sense of happiness. I now truly understand the importance and the immense benefit that can be gained by akhand namsankirtan.
