Sushree Gopeshwari Devi ( Didi Ji )
Her Holiness Sushree Gopeshwari Devi Ji affectionately called Didi Ji comes from Jagadguru Kripalu
Parishat, India.
Her Early Years

Born in Fiji to a very illustrious family well known for its social service and spiritual learning, Didi ji
later moved to New Zealand where she is currently residing. Didi Ji became aware of God‘s existence
at a very early age. With further knowledge of Vedic philosophy from “Prem Ras Sidhant”
(philosophy of Divine Love) written by Bhaktiyog Rasavatar Bhagawadanant Saint 1008 Jagadguru
Swami Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj, came with deep yearning to meet His Divine Grace, who  was so
intimate with God and who could guide her in that direction.
In 1980, Didi Ji went to India as a medical student but after a couple of years, she left medical collage
when she decided that medicine was not her calling. Didi ji holds B.A., LL.B(Hon)  & M.A. (majoring
in English literature and Western Philosophy).
Didi Ji was always interested in knowing about God and would often tell her parents that her goal in
life was to serve God by serving the people of this world and that marriage would be a distraction and
an impediment towards achieving this purpose. She once said, “Since I have given my heart and soul
to my beloved Lord, my body has no choice but to be only in the service of my Beloved Gurudev. This
bliss of my Beloved supersedes every other happiness or sensual pleasure that one gets from this
transient material world.” Major part of Didi Ji is always immersed in the thoughts
of her Beloved Gurudev and Radha Krishna.
In Service

Although Didi Ji has never learned Sanskrit or read the Hindu Scriptures, her audience is always
amazed and baffled to witness such a young dynamic speaker with such vast knowledge and lots of
energy. She has won the hearts of many, young and old with her sincerity and ever giving nature.

Didi Ji has travelled far and wide in the last 25 years to Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada,
Singapore, Malaysia, and the UK.  She is always on the move, enlightening the souls, and bringing joy
and peace to so many people’s lives.    
Meeting Her Spiritual Master

Didi Ji was only seventeen when she met the World’s Greatest Spiritual Teacher, Bhagawadanant
Saint Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj. Didi Ji had been deeply moved and touched by the inspiring
words of wisdom so logically, scientifically, spiritually philosophically and yet simply put in a small
book. “Prem Ras Sidhant”. When she found herself at the lotus feet of her Spiritual Master Shri
Kripalu Maharaj Ji, she felt that she had found an oasis in the desert at last. She realised that Shri
Maharaji, as his name “Kripalu” denotes, is the very personification of Grace itself. Bring near him
gave her a feeling of intimacy with her Beloved Radha Rani.

On completion of her academic studies, Didi Ji was instructed by her Spiritual Master to spread the
Divine message to the yearning hearts and eager ears. Thus in 1985, she took the order of Sanyas and
the entire philosophy of the Vedas was imparted to her by Shri Maharaj Ji grace. It started coming to
her naturally. It is the tremendous grace of her Gurudev, which allows her to be eloquent and well
