Annual Sadhana Shivirs
Sadhana Shivir is a devotional camp in which the devotees disconnect themselves from their regular worldly duties and responsibilities and isolate themselves to practice absorbing their mind in the comtemplation of God, and to perform service to God and Guru. These devotional camps are held twice a year – the annual month long sadhana program during October-November and the two-week long spring sadhana program held in March. Shri Maharaj Ji’s discourses are played multiple times during the day to reinforce spiritual knowledge and the key concepts of devotional practice. Devotional plays are performed by devotees depicting pastimes of Radha Krishna. Hindu festivals such as Divali, Holi, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu Jayanti, Govardhan Pooja, Sharad Poornima are celebrated during the sadhana program. Medical camps and health camps are also organised during the camps.

In addition to engaging in devotional practice, Shri Maharaj Ji teaches and encourages devotees to perform physical and monetary service. Majority of people who have dedicated their lives to Radha Krishna devotion engage themselves in voluntary service at the JKP ashrams. These include doctors, nurses and other hospital staff who render their services voluntarily at Jagadguru Kripalu Chikitsalaya (JKP Hospitals). Also, many devotees volunteer their time to serve in other ways such as office, cleaning and management.
During his divine presence on this earth planet, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj used to deliver series of public speeches, where thousands of people used to gather to listen to His divine teachings. He used to simplify even the most perplexing knowledge from the scriptures with great ease and clarity, and disclosed the guidelines to everyone on how to attain their ultimate goal of human life. The ease with which He used to narrate quotations from the scriptures, along with their chapter and verse numbers, supporting the concepts that he was explaining, was incredible. Recordings of his public speeches are now broadcasted daily on TV and regularly on facebook.com/Jagadguru.Kripaluji.Maharaj.
