JKP at a Glance

Consequently, JKP is involved in an ever increasing number of charitable activities coinciding with its ongoing spiritual programmes.
A Message From Our Presidents
Human beings of the current age (time) do not heed to the welfare of their own souls. They are becoming more and more restless since they consider themselves to be the physical body and thus, are running after the material world just in order to obtain transient happiness.
“In such a materialistic world, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj is paving the path to peace by binding everyone with the thread of universal brotherhood, through His message of Divine love to the entire world. At the same time, He has paved the path for both physical and spiritual welfare of the individual souls by establishing a large organisation like Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat.”
The organisation has been rendering social services through various social activities performed at a regular basis. The organisation is endeavouring various praiseworthy works in the fields of medicine, education, and for the welfare of women and upliftment of society at large.
Several constructions are being carried out under the auspices of the organisation; a huge sadhna (meditation) hall in Mangarh, a charitable hospital, as well as another grand sadhna hall in Vrindavan, and Kirti Mandir in Barsana. All the construction work are not only going to be beneficial in the future, but also has been providing employment to thousands of local labourers.
We seek the blessings at the lotus feet of Radha Krishna and our Gurudev Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj to provide their divine guidance in carrying forward the spiritual and humanitarian works of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat.

Free Secular Education
Kunda, situated in district Pratapgarh, Uttar Pradesh, is one of the lowest ranking regions for literacy in India. The majority of families are in an enormous struggle merely to survive. To get a job to have a decent life and hope for a bright future is something beyond their understanding and imagination. Given this economic condition, educating girls is the least of their priorities and hence neglected.
To get a decent job to have a decent life and hope for a brighter future is something far beyond from their understanding and imagination. As a result, complete education for daughters is rarely, if ever considered by most families. Keeping this in mind, Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat (JKP) has established a Charitable Educational Institution for Girls which provides 100% Free Education to all students.
JKP Education’s objective of offering education for free, has resulted in an institution which has become a guiding force for the educational upliftment of not only the underprivileged girls living in this region, but also the surrounding communities. In addition to receiving free education, students receive free transportation, including free distribution of bicycles to those students who travel long distances.Know More
