Amazing scenes from Bhakti Bhawan, Mangarh and the 90th birthday of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj

So many spiritual seekers under one roof, expressing their love to Radha Krishna through their sadhana. The Bhakti Bhavan will be a treasure for everyone who desires to experience the love of Radha Krishna, for generations to come. The remainder of the yearly, month-long Sadhana Program will take place inside Bhakti Bhavan.

Amazing photos and testimonials have begun to emerge from Mangarh, today, where a monumental new satsang hall was inaugurated amidst the 90th birthday celebration of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj. Bhakti Bhawan, Mangarh, is unique in every possible way and holds 10,000 devotees at once. Mr. Shekhar, a devotee of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj who is presently in Mangarh, described the scene live as it was happening:

Kirtan started from 12 am itself. All badhai bhajans have been sung. Devotees are sitting in the new sadhana hall now. There is a leela to be organized in evening. Instructions have being given to devotees for the operation of the event. It is so warm inside the hall and it's an amazing feeling sitting inside the new hall. Baloons have been given to satsangis which they are holding in their hands. Shree Maharajji came around 2:55 am. He was wearing white kurta and dhoti. Long tilak and chandan on forehand. It can't be imagined how he was looking. Shree Maharajji recited a shloka and the ribbon was cut. He entered by saying "Ladli Laal ki Jai!". All satsangis stood up when Shree Maharajji entered and started waving blue coloured balloons. Aarti was performed on the stage. Then, Nacho gao sab saadhak samuday was sung. The dancing band was wearing purple dress. Then everyone did pranam and received ladoo as prashadi. After this, everyone was asked to go to Bhakti Mandir. Everyone had darshan there. Next Shree Maharajji brought everyone to the canteen. Then devotees went to have breakfast. Shree Maharajji's birthday cake cutting is to be done around 9:30 am.

JKP Official facebook page has shared these precious pictures of the occasion. In my next post, we will take a look at some of the international celebrations of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's birthday, which have been happening in all the major cities around the world.

इतनी भव्य लीला तो एतिहासिक और दिव्य ही हो सकती है -- साल शुरू होता है भक्ति दिवस से फिर श्री महाराजजी का जगद्गुरु दिवस और फिर प्रेम मंदिर का भव्य-दिव्य उद्घाटन और श्री महाराजजी का दिव्य प्रवचन कृष्ण और राधा अष्टमी पर और जब इन सभी दिव्य वातावरण में हम तुच्छ साधक जन अपने आप को संभाल पाते तो यह दिव्य मनगढ़ की साधना और इस विशेष पर्व पर श्री महाराजजी के ९० जन्मदिवस पर आप स्वयं हमे एक ऐसा उपहार आजीवन के लिए दे रहें हैं, जहा की १०,००० सत्संगी एक साथ बैठ कर श्री राधा कृष्ण और साक्षात् राधावतार के दिव्य दर्शन और अपने इस मनुष्य योनि का एकमात्र लक्ष्य नि:संदेह हासिल कर सकते है और श्री महाराजजी के सानिध्य में रहकर गोलोक तक का मार्ग प्रशाश्थ कर सकते हैं.... श्री महाराजजी आपके इस दिव्य जन्मदिवस पर हम सब आपको आश्वासन देते हैं की हम सब जीव आपके द्वारा बताई गयी तन, मन, धन की सेवा से आपको परिप्लुत कर देंगे और आपके कृपालु नाम पर हम को पूरा भरोसा है,........... राधे राधे
