words of wisdom so logically, scientifically, spiritually philosophically and yet simply put in a small
book. “Prem Ras Sidhant”. When she found herself at the lotus feet of her Spiritual Master Shri
Kripalu Maharaj Ji, she felt that she had found an oasis in the desert at last. She realised that Shri
Maharaji, as his name “Kripalu” denotes, is the very personification of Grace itself. Bring near him
gave her a feeling of intimacy with her Beloved Radha Rani.

Divine message to the yearning hearts and eager ears. Thus in 1985, she took the order of Sanyas and
the entire philosophy of the Vedas was imparted to her by Shri Maharaj Ji grace. It started coming to
her naturally. It is the tremendous grace of her Gurudev, which allows her to be eloquent and well
versed. Click for more information about Gopeshwari Didi.
