Gifts to the World
Rupadhyana , loving remembrance of the Lord, is the science of devotional meditation emphasized by Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj. Loving remembrance has been referred to by the scriptures and historic Saints by many terms such as dhyāna, smaraṇa, sumirana and others. Shri Maharaj Ji clarified and simplified this practical science by first coining the word "Rupadhyana". Rupa means form and dhyana means meditation. The word Rupadhyana indicates directing of one's feelings towards one of the divine forms of God. This focus or remembrance alone is the practice of devotion.

According to the Vedas, there is a personality called “Bhagwan”, also known as “God”, “Khuda”, etc. The Vedas also say that other synonymous terms for God are “anand”, “happiness”, “bliss”. God is an ocean of bliss. We are a part of God. All individual souls are a fraction of God. And it is nature’s law that every fraction has a natural desire for its entirety. Being a fraction of bliss, every individual soul desires bliss. We want unlimited happiness. We want God. We may think that all we are looking for is the happiness that we normally experience in this world but what we are really looking for is that happiness that is of infinite amount and everlasting. In other words, knowingly or unknowingly, we are looking for God. Only by attaining God can we attain that unlimited happiness that we are looking for. Only by attaining that ocean of bliss, the individual soul can become blissful forever. Our belief that we can attain the happiness we are looking for from this world is our main mistake. Being a fraction of God, the individual soul is divine and hence it will become blissful only by attaining divine God. The divine soul can never become completely blissful no matter how much material world we give it. The subject of the soul is God and the subject of the body is the material world.Know More
