Annual Sadhana Camp will take place on 24 October - 28 November 2012 at Bhakti Dham, Mangarh. Shree Maharajji's 90th Birthday will take place on 29 October 2012.

Mangarh village in Pratapgarh district of Uttar Pradesh, India, is the appearance place of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj. Sadhana program is for one month. It starts from Dashahra which falls in October. A few days after Dashahra, Sharat Poornima comes. It is the most auspicious day for the devotee of Radha Krishna because, on that particular night (about 5,000 years ago), the maharas leela had happened. On that same night Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj has appeared. Every October thousands of devotees travel from throughout India and around the world to Mangarh to participate in the excelling birthday celebrations of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj and the annual sadhana program. This devotional intensive is an exceptional opportunity to experience higher states of Radha Krishna love. During these precious weeks Shree Maharajji constantly Graces the souls with His Divine association, His unparalleled knowledge and His Divinely dynamic chantings of the names of Radha Krishna. Fortunate devotees who have attended these sadhana programs feel the enhanced closeness of Their Beloved Radha Krishna and an increased longing for Their Divine vision and love.

Throughout the sadhana program ecstatic chanting programs are scheduled in the satsang hall from morning to evening and Shree Maharajji tells the leelas of Radha Krishna and expounds the deepest devotional theory and practical aspects of devotion through his Divine discourses. Devotees also have the golden chance to do seva (devotional service) in the ashram during the sadhana program.

Magnificent celebrations are organized for the auspicious occasions of Sharat Poornima, Divali and Govardhan Puja (schedule above). On these festival days huge crowds of thousands of devotees dance and chant, drowned in the love of Shyama Shyam and Shree Maharajji. Generous donations of clothing, utensils and blankets are distributed to the needy villagers with the blessings of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, who is renowned for his kindness and compassion.

Attending the sadhana program in Mangarh is a priceless Divine gift. It is an opportunity to fully immerse oneself in continuous devotion and service. Having Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's satsang for an extended period of time elevates the consciousness of the devotees and establishes their mind in Radha Krishna love. The Mangarh sadhana program leaves an indelible imprint of love and devotion in the heart of the sincere devotees.

This year, the Sadhana Program will take place at Bhakti Bhavan, Mangarh. This extremely beautiful and massive Sadhana Hall (Meditation Hall) has been established by Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat next to the Bhakti Mandir. Bhakti Bhawan is a meditation hall in the form of a huge temple. With an area of 90,000 square feet, it can accommodate 10,000 devotees at a time. The top of Bhakti Bhawan’s form is of a dome with a diameter of 270 feet, with the total height of the hall being 135 feet. The dome is one of the largest domes in the world and the largest in India to be built of concrete.

This meditation hall is unique and rare in every way. This hall has been constructed according to ancient Indian architecture and the pinnacle of the hall may be known as the largest. Ultra modern techniques have been used to construct this meditation hall. Not only has this almost complete Bhakti Bhawan become an attraction zone for the people around its vicinity area, but it has also left eager and curious visitors from faraway astounded. An identical Sadhana Hall is currently being constructed next to Prem Mandir, Vrindavan (click here to watch a news report of the foundation stone ceremony last year).
