Shri 1008 Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj Ji
Today, as Shri Maharaj Ji’s Divine glory spreads in the world, let us receive
devotional inspiration by observing his magnificent personality. Jagadguru Shri  
Kripalu Ji Maharaj Ji  resides in millions of devotees’ hearts due to his incomparable
Divine philosophy, charming Divine personality, and very simple and loving nature.
For those thousands of surrendered devotees who have taken a firm vow to follow
the spiritual path to reach the Divine goal, the name of Shri Maharaj Ji  touches the
core of their hearts and creates music of many loving devotional feelings.

He appeared in 1922 at midnight on Sharad Purnima in the lap of the eternally
Divine, most fortunate Shrimati Bhagvati Devi in Mangarh village (near Allahabad,
India). On the same night five thousand years ago, Shri Krishna bestowed the
highest class of Divine love Bliss in the form of Maharas to qualified souls.

During his childhood, like an ordinary human being, Shri Maharaj Ji as if he was
studying, but, at the age of sixteen, he completed his education of Sanskrit literature
and grammar. After this, no one ever saw him studying the Vedas, Puranas or other
scriptures.

There was a sudden extreme change in him after he finished his education. To enjoy
the Bliss of Divine love, he wandered for some time in the forest full of tigers and
lions at Chitrakoot near Sharbhang ashram. After that, he arrived at his soul
beloved place, Vrindavan. Here, his ocean of Divine love began to overflow.

He used to remain unconscious in the ecstasy of Divine love for many days at a time.
This continued for quite some time. But then he couldn't refuse the request by some
sincere devotees to give them his association. Shri Maharaj Ji, who descended for the
welfare of the world, who is causelessly merciful, concealed his Divine Bhav (extacy),
and from here he started his indescribably tireless hard work for the benefit of the
souls.

Through his heart touching kirtan and discourses on spiritual subjects, without any
regard to country, caste, religion, etc., he freely began to distribute Divine love. In
1955, Shri Maharaj Ji organised a large gathering of scholars in Chitrakoot. Before
seventy well known religious speakers from all over India and common people, he
gave a very simple and beautiful reconciliation of the many seemingly contradictory
philosophies in the Vedas, Puranas, Smritis and other scriptures. The next year he
organized the same kind of large gathering of saints in Kanpur.

Shri Rajnarayan Shukla, who was the chief secretary of Kashi Vidvat Parishat, a
scholar of the six schools of philosophy and an expert debater, and other scholars
present bowed in complete admiration after hearing the Divine discourse given by
Shri Maharaj Ji. Before a large crowd, while declaring Shri Maharaj Ji's Divinity,
they requested him to address the Kashi Vidvat Parishat an apex body of 500
eminent vedic scholars .

Maha Mantra ( Hare Ram Hare
Krishna Chanting)
The purpose of spiritual philosophy is move us closer to God. To help us, there is (the
writings or teachings of Saints). These will give us the greatest help in understanding
and developing faith in what is God and His path of realization. The remaining
scriptures apart from these are the proof that substantiates these writings.

We can especially look to the writings of the Jagadgurus. Enlightened Saints in the
Vedic tradition who reveal world-class spiritual teachings are given this title, which
means 'world teacher'. The breadth, depth and Divine insight of a Jagadguru's
teachings are unique, excelling and even revolutionary in their class and quality.
In gist, the topics these Saints reveal in their writings are:
•What is the soul
•What is Maya
•What is the soul's relationship to Maya
•What is God
•What is the soul's relationship to God
•What is Divine bliss
•How does the soul realize Divine bliss and find God

There were four historic Jagadgurus who wrote commentaries on the knowledge
found in three scriptures collectively referred to as "prasthan-treyi" - the
Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita and the Brahm Sutra.

Using scriptural evidence from these writings, they offered their particular views on
the above points. Their philosophies were a version of vedanta. Vedanta means the
knowledge which is the essence of the scriptures.

•Adi Jagadguru Shankaracharya - advaita vedanta (nondualism)
•Jagadguru Nimbarkacharya - dvait-advaita vedanta (dual-nondualism)
•Jagadguru Ramanujacharya - vishishtadvaita vedanta (qualified nondualism)
•Jagadguru Madhvacharya - dvaita vedanta (dualism)

Also contributing to this important body of spiritual philosophy were two more Saints:
•Shri Vallabhacharya - advaita vedanta (pure dualism) and
•Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu -- achintya-bhedabhed vad (simultaneous distinction –
non distinction)

And the Jagadguru for our current age:-
•Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj - a complete reconciler of the above philosophies
Nikhil-darshan-samanvayacharya:- Reconciler of all the Scriptures
Reconciling all the Vedanta Philosophies

In 1957, Jagadguru Shri Kripaluji Maharaj (Shri Maharaj Ji) was invited by the Kashi
Vidvat Parishat, a body of 500 foremost scriptural scholars of Varanasi, India, to
speak for nine consecutive days on scriptural philosophy. During this time, Shri
Maharaj Ji quoted thousands of verses from hundreds of scriptures and spoke in
fluent Sanskrit. He revealed a breadth and depth of Divine understanding that belied
his age at that time of only 34 years.

Shri Maharaj Ji accepted and proved true the existing philosophies of all the previous
Jagadgurus and to the utter amazement of the scholars. He also miraculously
reconciled their seeming contradictions. In addition, he proved the significance,
importance and supremacy of bhakti (devotion) as the essence of all the Hindu path
for this age. To this end, he also explained the practical form of nishkam bhakti, or
selfless devotion, which could be followed by anyone.

Recognising that only the greatest of Divine personalities could have revealed such
knowledge, the scholars of Kashi Vidvat Parishat unanimously bestowed on Shri
Maharaj Ji the title of Jagadguruttam, or Jagadguru of Jagadgurus.

Subsequent to his receiving the title of Jagadguru, and for the last 55 years, Shri
Maharaj Ji has revealed thousands of verses of devotional literature explaining the
form, virtues, names, leelas and abodes of Radha Krishna, and in particular, he has
revealed the supremacy of Shri Radha as the absolute supreme form of the Divine
existence.

importance and supremacy of bhakti (devotion) as the essence of all the Hindu

Why So? "Because, there is NO difference what so ever between God and His very
Own Saintly Devotees!". As explained in the  Sutra below by Narad Ji.



And Lord Krishna also confirms this in Bhagavatam in His conversation to Uddhava







A genuine guru is one who descends on the earth from time to time as a repository
of spiritual force.The divine current of this spirit-force changes its course from time
to time just as a mighty stream of water opens up a new channel.
Eyasya deve para bhaktir yatha deve tatha gurau
tasyaite kathita hyarthah prakshante mahatmanah
- Shvetashvatara Upanishad 6.23
One who has supreme devotion in God and Guru (the Saint) equally (no less!),
attains that ultimate goal.
"tasmins taj-jane bhedabhavat"
(Narad Bhakti Sutra 41)
Acharyam maam vijaaniyaan,naavamanyeta karhichit,
Na martya-bhudhyaasuyeta,sarva-deva-mayo guruh
.
“Know the Guru to be Myself (God).  Never think unfavorably about Him.  
Do not use your material intellect to comprehend the Guru’s divine actions,
for all forms of God dwell within Him
                                                          Srimad Bhagavatam 11.17.27

Shri Maharajji makes no distinction of caste, creed, colour or race. With His infinite
Love and Compassion He gathers all into the purity of His Divine embrace and His
Divine effulgence shines through all He says, all He does and all He is. Every seeker
is amazed to see how approachable He is and enjoys the special privilege of individual
attention from Him. Thus He makes each one feel that He belongs to them. His tall,
stately and regal yet childlike Personality has an indefinable attraction and draws all
young and old, men, women and children to Him. The all-satisfying Love, which
emanates from Him, makes each one feel the Love of a parent, friend and teacher
all in one. It is very easy to become a recipient because there is no other giver like
Shri Maharajji. True to His name 'Kripalu' He is the very 'Ocean of Grace.'
