JKP Literature

Jagadguru Kripalu Bhaktiyoga Tattvadarshan - JKP Literature 

The body of literature composed and revealed by Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj is unique and unparalleled. It is an invaluable treasure of the spiritual world. The principles relating to bhakti yoga (devotion) have been written in a very simple, lucid and captivating style. In ancient times when great Spiritual Masters wrote, Sanskrit was the common scholarly language. Nowadays the social situation has changed and fewer people learn Sanskrit. For the convenience of the majority, Shri Maharaj Ji composed all his philosophical and devotional works exclusively in Hindi. Some of his works have already been translated by devotees and published in other languages, including English.

Every living being in the universe desires everlasting happiness or bliss, but most people don't know what the nature of true happiness is, nor how or from where it can be attained. As a result people remain deprived of this bliss due to their unawareness. There have been many pundits and scholars of Hindu religion who, using their empirical knowledge, have written books on these topics, but instead of satisfying the reader, one is left more confused and even skeptical, due to the presence of unresolved contradictions. In comparison, the literature of Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj satisfies both the head and the heart by not only revealing and reconciling these apparent contradictions, but infusing the language with brajarasa.

Shri Maharaj Ji is not aligned with any particular sect and so we find equal regard to every acharya in his writing. The subjects are presented in such a way as to be of benefit to both the common person and the scholar. The subject matter is supported by numerous authoritative statements from the Vedas and other scriptures, further enriched by examples relevant to our own daily life.

Any sincere reader of Shri Maharaj Ji's work becomes overwhelmed with love for Shri Radha Krishna and a strong desire for Their vision dawns in the heart. Frugal in words, but fathomless in meaning, Shri Maharaj Ji's work is a veritable ocean of divine love, capable of changing even the driest of hearts into one overflowing with love.
