60th Jagadguruttam Diwas Day 5 Highlights

The day started with a Maha-aarti performed by thousands of devotees.

At around 11am almost 10,000 balloons were released by jubilant sadhaks to mark the celebrations of this auspicious day. They then joined JKP Presidents on the steps of Prem Mandir as they sang the divine name and danced with joy! Cultural dances to beating drums were also performed outside Prem Mandir throughout the day.

At 4pm, the cake cutting ceremony took place in the sadhana hall, after which the sadhaks once again went to Prem Mandir to join in the celebrations there.

The grand finale cultural programme included a play which reminded the sadhaks of the fleeting nature of the world and the importance of focusing on a higher goal in life. There was also a magnificent Raas Leela dance and a beautiful Diya dance. At the end of the program, all performers from the last 5 days came together to offer their love and humble prayer to their Guru.

In honour of this auspicious event, JKP Presidents have pledged to build ‘Jagadguru Kripalu Kripa Dham’ to house almost 100 elderly shelterless sadhus in the holy land of Vrindavan.

The eve of 60th Jagadguruttam Diwas was filled with various activities. By the early morning aarti, the hall was already filled to the brim with devotees from all over India and around the world.

At 8am all sadhaks gathered for Shobha Yatra with two raths (chariots), one with our darlings Shyama-Shyam and the other with our beloved Guru, Jagadguruttam Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj. JKP Presidents led the sadhaks towards Shyama Shyam Dham while singing a soul-stirring ‘Hari Bol’ sankirtan. The air was filled with a breeze of continuous joy as the sadhaks walked on the divine soil of Braj, where our eternal beloved Shri Radha-Krishna had also walked 5000 years ago!

Upon reaching Shyama Shyam Dham, aarti was performed to Gurudev both on the rath and also inside the sadhana hall. Thousands joined in the aarti, after which the rath returned back to Prem Mandir. Another aarti was performed in Prem Mandir.

The sadhaks continued to dance outside the mandir for many hours. The bliss experienced cannot be described.

The day continued with the sadhana sessions, a celebration of Lohri, and a very heart touching Leela on Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu during His Divine appearance 500 years ago.

On Day 3, in honour of the 60th Jagadguruttam Diwas celebrations, dignitaries of Braj were invited to a conference at Prem Mandir. Many spoke of the Divinity and glories of Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj and His contributions to mankind. They acknowledged him as the 5th Original Jagadguru of this age.

A special prayer (stuti) to Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj was sung by the JKP preachers.

The evening cultural programme included a devotional Qawali and a heart-wrenching play on Uddhav and his journey to Vrindavan to meet the Gopis. While there, he surrenders to Radha Rani and learns about Bhakti. Through this play, we learn about the importance of Guru to progress on the path of Bhakti.

The day ended with a lecture on ‘Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj: The Past, Present and Future of Human Civilization’ by a JKP Preacher, Swami Yugal Sharan Ji.

Day 2 was another beautiful day filled with many devotional events. In the morning, devotees went to Kusum Sarovar for a special sankirtan session. This was the place that Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj would take His devotees as a way to remind them of Shri Radha Krishna’s leelas. This time, JKP Presidents took the devotees there to remind them of the time they had spent with their Gurudev.

In the evening, the leelas of past Gurus (Shri Guru Gobind Singh, Guru Ram Das Ji etc) provided sadhaks an understanding of faith, surrender and love for Guru. There was also a beautiful peacock dance which mesmerised everyone, bringing love for Hari-Guru in one’s heart.

To end the evening, one of the JKP Preachers, Sushri Braj Chakori Devi gave a very important speech on ‘Kripalu Bhaktiyoga Tatva Darshan’.
