The local people have expressed their gratitude to Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj again and again for his, “Gift to Vrindaban.” The pandits and spiritual heads of Vrindaban’s eminent religious institutions and temples are seen daily during the artitimes. In fact, just six weeks after the temple opening, 10,000 people pass through the counters at the security gates every weekday. On weekends the crowd swells to 25,000, and on Holi 100,000 people visited during the four hours the temple was open. The maximum crowd can be seen at 7:00 p.m. during the lighted musical fountain display when hundreds of people are mesmerized by the patterns made by the colored water twisting, twirling and shooting out from water jets in the massive fountain. The patterns follow the ragas of the blissful kirtan of Radha Krishn being played. A video image of thekirtan sometimes appears on a “screen” of water. The darshan of the stunningly adorned Deities is ever-new, as their shringar (clothing and ornaments) are changed daily before the first arti at 5:30 a.m. Their beauty captures the heart of many of the visitors who feel the actual Divine presence of Radha Krishn in Them. “I feel the Deities are talking and moving around with me,” said one deeply moved visitor. Although the architecture of the temple is unparalleled, it is the Divine vibrations emanating from Prem Mandir that compel many to visit again and again. “I forgot myself and this world when I was in meditation and I felt completely peaceful. I wish to visit very often,” H. Thara of Tamil Nadu wrote in the guest register. “I wish to stay here forever,” wrote another.
Prem Mandir ki Jai! Vrindaban Dham ki Jai! Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj ki Jai!
