Happy Jagadguru Diwas 2014, New Lectures Series & Launch of Instagram

Happy Jagadguru Diwas 2014 to Kripalu Ji Maharaj
Happy Jagadguru Diwas 2014 and Makar Sankranti to Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj

“As a flush to sizzle out the sinful earth
As droplets of water to a thirsty sailor
As a shower to the very desert
As guideline & pathway to hopeless travelers
As a drop of love to harsh hearts 
GURU landed as the angel of lord!
Happy Jagadguru Diwas ” - Poem by Aaprisha Sharma from Nepal

In cities in India and around the world, the celebrations for Jagadguru Diwas 2014 and Makar Sankranti 2014 are huge. On this day, thousands of devotees take a holy dip in the Ganges and other holy streams. People offer thousands of their colorful oblations to the Sun in the form of beautiful kites. The act stands as a metaphor for reaching to their beloved God. In the ashrams of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat, we mark this occasion in a joyous and colorful way; even more-so because it is the day when Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, our Guru, was ordained as "Jagadguru" in 1957. Visit RMD Official Facebook to view pictures.

On Sunday, beautiful kites filled the skyline of Radha Madhav Dham USA and Radha Govind Dham New York and devotees of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj offered their respects to the lotus feet of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj.

In other news, Swami Nikhilanand Ji, senior preacher of Radha Krishna and sanyasi disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj delivered a profound series of lectures on the significance of the life of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj. The 6-part series was delivered to devotees at Radha Madhav Dham. All speeches are available for viewing at Radha Madhav Dham's youtube channel www.youtube.com/RadhaMadhavDham or Swami Ji's blog.
