Ram Navami Celebrations, Part 2
Hundreds of devotees were in Golok Dham, Dwarka today to celebrate Ram Navami. The Presidents of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat were in our ashram there to join everyone in the special Sadhana programme organized by Sushri Dr. Yogeshwari Devi Ji. It was a wonderful event with Shri Ram’s sankirtan sung throughout the day. A special Abhishek and Aarti were performed in honor of Shri Ram Ji!
An honorable guest, who is also a Vedic academic, attended the event. Professor Shivaji Upadhyaya, General Secretary of Kashi Vidvat Parishat, and previous Vice Chancellor of Sampoornanand University gave a moving speech about Jagadguruttam Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj. We will be uploading his full speech, with English subtitles in a few days. Watch out for this very important speech right here and on YouTube.com/jkpindia as well.
Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat wishes everyone a very Happy Ram Navami once again!
