Life Story of Shri Maharaji in His own words
Apr 19, 2020
The first spiritual conference I organized was in Chitrakoot. No conference of the kind had ever been organized before, and it lasted 16 days. Many arguments took place during it. Eventually I had to speak on the stage. There was a speaker by the name Pathik Ji Maharaj; he challenged me. I had ........

God is ‘Karuna Sagar.’ He is the unlimited ocean of mercy and compassion. Saint Tulsidas writes in Vinay Patrika that Bhagvan Shri Ram is compassionate to one and all. Gaurang Mahaprabhu says – O Krishna! There are only three ways in which You will behave towards me. You will give me a loving em........
Testimonials from Devotees
I attended the Thanksgiving Retreat at Radha Madhav Dham in Austin this weekend, and I throughly enjoyed didi's lectures. She is brilliant with appropriate vocabulary and mind boggling anecdotes from the scriptures to help us understand maya, attachment, sadhana, and spirituality just to name a few concepts. Thank you for the spiritual grace.

I've had the privilege of listening to a lecture by Didi Ji in Trinidad and was amazed by the clarity and sincerity of her voice as well as the calm and soothing atmosphere created there. I'm not really a religious person, but I'd like to believe that I'm a spiritual seeker trying to strike a balance between the material trappings of this illusory world and the inward journey into self knowledge and experience.

I want to extend my thanks and gratitude to you and the volunteer team of Yugal Kunj for a welcoming and peaceful environment at the Family Retreat. Yugal Kunj is a magnificent oasis for new spiritual seekers and a piece of Mangarh for Shri Maharaj Ji's devotees. I can say this because I felt sad leaving and the keertans kept echoing in my head for days after I left just like I always felt leaving Mangarh.

I humbly wish to commend the tremendous service done by the Radha Madhav Society throughout the world and I appreciate the information and kind courtesies extended via your website.

Didi Ji is a gifted and effective speaker and always captures the attention of her audience. However, listening to her recent CDs, I was struck by the quantum jump in clarity, focus, and sharpness of expression as displayed in these CDs compared with her earlier CDs which, by the way, were endearing in their own right. I retired from WSU after 35 years during which time U taught graduate courses and also did administrative duties as the Dean of the College. Self-evaluation and evaluation in general come instinctively to me. If I were to rate her as a teacher and religious preacher, she is a truly a superb teacher. Her ability to tackle complex issues of life and happiness are remarkable. I bow to her humbly and respectfully.

Frequently Asked Questions
Questions and Answers with Didi Ji
It is said that there is no such thing as love in this material world. What is LOVE?
Love is not to be confused with attachment of the mind. In the world, we form attachments wherever we experience, or even suspect fulfillment of self-interest. This attachment is erroneously known as love, and it is selfish by nature. True love is never selfish; it is absolutely selfless. A gopi loves Shri Krishna. As she fans her Lord, tears of happiness stream out of her eyes. Now the gopi must wipe her tears, so she curses her own happiness since it has caused an interruption in serving her beloved. Such is the nature of true love.
How do we move forward from past mistakes?
God and Guru do not look at our past; they only look at our present. So, if you seriously feel remorse for past mistakes and genuinely resolve to no longer committing them you will move forward and ultimately forget about them. Do not allow them to paralyze you so that you are not able to move away from them. It’s not helpful to beat yourself up about them either. You will only feel discouraged. Learn from your mistakes and move on.
How can we realize we are not the body, and dissassociate with bodily pain and pleasure?
We do have a body, and as long as the body remains, we will experience pain and pleasure. The more you realize yourself to be the soul, the more you will disassociate yourself from matters pertaining to the body. However, even an elevated spiritual person experiences physical discomfort and pain, and has to deal with such matters. His attitude towards physical matters, however, changes drastically.
Words of Wisdom
Grace of a Guru
Scriptures state repeatedly that guidance of a divine teacher is necessary for one who wishes to live a purposeful life and who wishes to know God. Such a teacher is known as the Guru. A Guru possesses theoretical knowledge of all the scriptures and a practical experience of God. Although a Guru descends to earth for the sake of everyone, not everyone is attracted towards a Guru. Some are immedia.....
