Kripaluji Maharaj's 90th birthday hits the headlines and good wishes from Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson

Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj's 90th birthday in Hindustan Times
The Hindustan headlined with Kripaluji is such a unique Saint who understands the mystery of the soul

Due to the increase of number of satsangees, this satsang hall seemed small, but in this hall altogether 15,000 satsangees can sit and do devotion. This is a priceless gift to mankind. This is what Jagadguru Kripaluji said, while he dedicated the newly built satsang hall to all. Under the special care of Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj in Bhakti Dham, Mangarh, there are many grand constructions based on rare art forms, but this new Sadhana hall is different from all. Constructed over 10,000 square meter of land and with 38 crore rupees, this hall can seat 15,000 people. The most interesting thing is that there are no pillars in the middle to hold the dome of the satsang hall. In a hall 130 feet high it has a 20 feet ring which will hold a huge lotus flower in the center. Within the hall in 100 square feet there is stage where the Jagadguru will be seated to give a lecture. The dome very much alike the Vidhan Bhavan dome is centrally air conditioned. This took three years to be completed and on Monday, the day of SharaT Poornima, "Radhey Radhey" kirtan reverberated in the Satsang hall.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson, Prakash Javadeker, gave a speech to the crowd during the Bhakti Bhavan inauguration ceremony and spoke on how Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj is helping people and expressed his amazement at the new 270 foot diameter, 135 foot high dome-shaped hall.

Meanwhile, Mr. Shekhar, a devotee of Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, shared more details of the day of the Bhakti Bhavan inauguration and Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's 90th birthday. He described:

Shree Maharajji came in hall around 10 pm. He was wearing royal attire. Devotees did pranaam and aarti was performed. Abhishek was also done. Kids from Barsana presented a dance in front of Shree Maharajji. A video was made specially for Shree Maharajji's birthday. The video had the happy birthday song in English along with video clips/ pics of Shree Maharajji and Amma. Then Shree Maharajji left to have lunch. Kirtan went for sometime, after which devotees were asked to go and have lunch. Also, many did not sleep the previous night so they could take some sleep at that time. 5 mins after the crowd dissembled, it came to notice that Shree Maharajji is going to come back to the hall. Devotees rushed to get back to the hall. Announcement was made by Parikari Didi that a special guest is going to come and will deliver a lecture. In the meanwhile, bhajan was played- Meri radhey rani, meri thakurani maharani Radhey Rani. After sometime, a couple of spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party came and spoke about Shree Maharajji and how he is helping people. He is regular listener of Shree Maharajji too. Then devotees left to have lunch.
