Who is Shree Kripalu ji Maharaj in the words of Acharya Shri Raj - TopicsExpress


Who is Shree Kripalu ji Maharaj in the words of Acharya Shri Raj Narayan Shatshastri, Chief Secretary of Kashi Vidvat Parishat. Shri Maharaj Ji’s scriptural omniscience is probably best illustrated by the words of Acharya Shri Raj Narayan Shatshastri, Chief Secretary of Kashi Vidvat Parishat. A leading luminary in the field of scriptural debate, a master in the six systems of philosophy, the universally recognised and foremost philosopher of India and the most learned scholar amongst the 500 that constituted Kashi Vidvat Parishat witnessed Shri Maharaj Ji’s discourses in Kanpur. What he said to the assembly on 19 October 1956 appears below in English and in full for the first time, “It is the greatest fortune for the residents of Kanpur, that the foremost personality of the spiritual sphere, the Crest-Jewel of Saints, Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj, has organised this year’s conference in this city. This was held in Chitrakoot Dham last year. There Shri Maharaj Ji reconciled twelve schools of philosophical thought. In this year, you have the great fortune of witnessing the reconciliation of the paths of materialism and spirituality. The learned scholars of Kashi do not easily accept anyone as a scholar of the entire body of scriptures. We challenge people to scriptural debate first and test him in every possible way before accepting him as a knower of scripture. However, we are seated on this stage before such a vast body of learned scholars and are ready to admit that we recognise the foremost of Saints, Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj and his divine talent and we advise you all to do the same and derive spiritual benefit from him. We had heard about Kripalu Ji Maharaj before coming here. I did not accept that anyone could gain such unique mastery over all the Vedas and other scriptures at such a young age. But we were spellbound after hearing yesterday’s lectures. While referring to all the Philosophical Schools, the unique way in which he established the path of devotion was transcendental, definitely divinely inspired. Such a speech could only be inspired by God Himself. No one can display such talent or knowledge of his own accord. You are extremely fortunate to have in your midst a Saint who can present this level of divine knowledge. Kashi is the centre of spiritual learning for the entire world. We, the residents of Kashi are seated here. Hearing Shri Kripalu Ji’s divine utterances yesterday, we were all compelled to accept humble submission before him. Every action of the Saints is for the welfare of the world. The groups and philosophical schools of thought established by them have the goal of establishing spirituality worldwide and reconciling the various schools of philosophical thought based on the scriptures. A Saint has attained the Ultimate Reality and has nothing to attain for himself. Recently, in MP (India) someone asked him what he could offer him. Kripalu Ji said the fact is that Kripalu has come to give and not to take. Shri Shukla Ji said that the people of Kashi just try to access the depth of the person. A lot of people seated here today must have recognised Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj and support what I say and I am pleased with it. Those people are most fortunate who can understand Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj and place their faith in him. I wanted to take him to Kashi but HE says that all the people of Kashi are naturally endowed with knowledge and he is needed where there is a lack of understanding. Shri Shukla Ji said he desired that people understood and recognise Shri Maharaj Ji and heard his simple and extraordinary and relishable instructions and benefited by adopting them practically in their lives.”
