His Divinity Swami Prakashanand Saraswati, (Shree Swamiji) was born in January, 1929 on saphala ekadashi, in a religious and respectable Brahman family of Ayodhya, India. Since his childhood he longed for Radha Krishn and desired to go to Vrindaban. Keeping his devotional feelings deep in his heart, Shree Swamiji continued his formal studies. At the age of 21, in 1950, he renounced the world and went to Joshimath in the Himalayas and then in 1951 he took the order of sanyas. In 1952, he was offered to be the successor of Jagadguru Shankaracharya of Joshimath, one of the most renowned religious thrones of India. He very politely refused by saying that his final desire is to go to Vrindaban and that he has given his life for the service of Radha Rani, so I cannot live forever in the math.
Following the strict discipline of sanyas, he lived in the Himalayas (Joshimath, Badrinath, Rishikesh, and Haridwar, etc.), the forests of Amarkantak, near the Narbada river, and other holy places. Shree Swamiji decided to go to Vrindaban to fulfill his long awaited desire to be in the abode of Radha Rani. When he entered Vrindaban he felt at home. While staying there Swamiji studied the life history of Chaitanya Mahaprabhuji and learned about his ecstatic revelations of Hari-bol.
After some time, Shree Swamiji desired to go to Barsana, the abode of Radha Rani. There a devotee told him about Shree Kripaluji Maharaj (Shree Maharajji). Immediately Swamiji left to meet Shree Maharajji. He saw everything in Shree Maharajji that he had read about Chaitanya Mahaprabhuji. After about 6 months, with the will of Shree Maharajji, Swamiji came back to Barsana where he stayed for the next 16 years. He also lived in the isolated leela places of Govardhan and Kamban and many other places in Braj. Devotees who met Shree Swamiji at that time, always found him absorbed in the thoughts of Radha Rani.
Later on Swamiji started giving discourses on raganuga bhakti (divine-love-consciousness). He decided to spread the message of raganuga bhakti and formed the organzation, now called Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat.
From 1964 to 1969 he gave discourses in India and in early 1971 he decided to spread the Divine message of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj in an organized way. In 1972 he traveled to Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Fiji, New Zealand and in 1978 he came to U.S.
In 1990, Shree Swamiji began the establishment of Barsana Dham and the Shree Raseshwari Radha Rani Temple. The ashram and temple complex, one of the largest in the U.S., is located on 240 acres of scenic grounds in the Hill Country near Austin, TX. He also established major centers of Hindu worship and religion in Barsana and Vrindaban, India.
Shree Swamiji s state of devotional absorbment is quite evident. He is humble and forgiving. Although he teaches devotion to Radha Krishn, he has regard for all the religions and all the Saints who have shown the true path of devotion to God.
His knowledge about the Divine science of the scriptures is unequalled. He is the first person who has bridged the long-lived gap between religion and modern science, and has scientifically brought them together which is evident in his writings.
His books are unique examples of his exceeding knowledge related to the science of the material and the Divine dimensions. He is so simple that he is the friend of every soul desiring God realization.Review:
It is astonishing to find Shree Swamiji s penetrating perception of the complexities of human nature and the marvellous manner in which he co-relates the teachings of all of our ancient scriptures (the Vedas, the Puranas, the Upnishads, the Brahm Sutra and the Gita). His masterly exposition that the actions of God are beyond human reasoning and what may often appear to be faulty or mistaken are only God s way of showering Grace upon mankind, is unique and enchanting.
His message, though rooted in deep philosophy, is marked by clarity and simplicity and is pragmatic. We need the teachings of Shree Swamiji. --Justice Ram Nandan Prasad New Delhi, India
