He had a great, ideal personality with a glowing visage and stately frame and treasured in it transcendental knowledge and wisdom. When Shri Maharaj Ji moved about, it looked as though India's history, India's dharma, India's glorious culture, and the entire tradition of the rishis was coming alive ...
Lila Samvaran - The Disappearance of Jagadguruttam is a humble attempt to present a comprehensive account of the events from 2013. It was a year that started with Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj Ji hospitalised due to ill health, and concluded in tragedy, with his shock ascent to his divine abode on 11 November. The focus is the period from 11 November, when Kripalu Ji Maharaj was noticed sitting in ecstasy outside his house in Bhakti Dham, right through to his divine ashes gracing the holy river Sarayu in Ayodhya, during the morning of 15 March 2014.
11 November is covered in detail giving readers insight into what Kripaluji was doing that fateful morning, as recalled by devotees, leading up to 11.44am. Then there is the devastation of the morning of 18 November, when a huge crowd of mourners stood as his body was taken into the lap of Agnidev.
The book describes all the events held in his honour, including the many wonderful tributes that flowed in from across the country. The 13 days of rituals in Bhakti Dham, the huge charitable events in Vrindavan and Barsana, and detailed reports from all those pilgrimage sites that have become even holier having received his all-conscious ashes.
It is a moving account, and one that will awaken the memories and emotions of every devotee for years to come, while profoundly affecting those who are just coming to know of his glory and greatness.
