A Tribute to Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj:

Leaving for his divine abode, the most revered Kripalu Ji Maharaj, has left a void in the spiritual life of this world which cannot be filled. Being such a noble personality and having attained the highest form of jnana and bhakti, the whole world was suffused with the sweet stream of Shri Radha Krishna's divine love. He revealed a tangible form of meditation or dhyana and renamed it rupadhyana, thereby making it clear that the practice of meditation is meaningful only when we choose a visual form of God and focus our mind on that form while meditating.
I feel that as Jagadguruttam the way he liberally showered the sweetness of Shri Radha Krishna's divine love on the people of the world was simply amazing. Receiving God's grace is a great privilege, but even greater than that, is to spread it to each and every individual. Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj revealed with great devotion the gangotri of scriptural knowledge from the land of Vrindavan, which over the course of time, quenched the spiritual thirst of the entire world.
Although today he is not physically present in our midst, he will continue to exist among millions of his devotees across the world with his spiritual effulgence. Today, on the occasion of immersion of the kalash containing his holy ashes, I, on my own behalf and that of the entire Vatsalya Parivar, bow to his all-pervading divinity and pay tribute to him.
Sadhvi Ritambhara Ji
