Most people who have listened to my discourses have requested that if they were available in printed form, people at large would be immensely benefited.

Every living being wants to be happy and is seeking happiness in every moment. But what is everlasting happiness and how can it be attained? Without the right answers, the happiness we experience in the world will never last.
Prema Rasa Siddhanta - Philosophy of Divine Love brilliantly reconciles the teachings of Hinduism and India’s great Saints to give the only genuine answer. Though the knowledge contained in scriptures like the Vedas, Puranas and Upanishads is limitless, in this concise book, Jagadguruttam Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj reveals the essence in the simplest possible way, and in the most compelling manner. Authenticated by numerous scriptural and scientific references, Kripalu Ji Maharaj takes readers from the theoretical aspects of spirituality to the practical aspects of devotion and meditation and its application in daily life.
Over fourteen chapters, Kripaluji discusses the pursuit of happiness, the nature of love, the soul and God’s grace. He reconciles materialism and spirituality, details the paths of karm and gyan, describes the potential of bhakti yoga and reveals that God-realisation only happens through the grace of a genuine Saint, and then describes how to identify such a Saint.
