Kripalu Ji Maharaj has not initiated anyone

Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj
Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj only Graces

Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj only Graces

You will be surprised to hear that Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj, who has unparalleled spiritual knowledge and who is always absorbed in the Divine love of God, has neither initiated anyone nor given a 'mantra' in anyone's ears. He only Graces.

Process of becoming a disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj

Anyone desiring to attain Radha Krishna in this life is qualified to follow the path of bhakti as taught by Shree Kripaluji Maharaj; this includes householders. However, Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj does not formally initiate devotees. He is willing to Grace anyone who accepts him in their heart. It all happens internally: you accept him as your Guru, and start following the path according to his teachings, and he will Grace you and help you to proceed. 

There is no formality required. If you accept him, he has already accepted you, even if you have never physically met him. Now all that is left is to proceed on the path with the faith that he is already Gracing you. When, through the path of bhakti, your heart is fully purified, then he could Grace you with God realization. This is the true or final initiation which takes place once a devotee has become qualified (by completing his heart purification). This is how Kripaluji Maharaj has described the Guru-disciple relationship and the process of initiation.
