He was immensely cherished by the group of highly qualified spiritual scholars in Kashi in 1957. They glorified him with a composition of 7 Sanskrit verses, called padyaprasoonopahar (a gift of poetic flowers), and honored him by conferring the unprecedented title of Jagadguruttam, which means greatest of all Jagadgurus.
Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj reconciled philosophies of all four prior Jagadgurus. Jagadguru Shankaracharya propounded Dwait vad or non-Dualism, Jagadguru Nimbarkacharya propounded Dwaita-Dwait vad dualism and non-dualism. Jagadguru Vallabhacharya propagated Vishuddh Advait vad, or Pure Non-dualism. Jagadguru Madhavacharya propounded Dwait vad, or Dualism. Shri Maharaj Ji established the importance of the philosophies of all Jagadgurus. While reconciling all of them, Shri Maharaj Ji propounded his own philosophy. Shri Maharaj Ji established that even though the philosophies of prior Jagadgurus seem contradictory, yet they are paths of reaching the absolute truth. Therefore, he was pronounced the best of all the past Jagadgurus.
Kashi Vivad Parishat proclaimed him to be "beyond perfection" in all 6 schools of philosophy namely Vyakaran, Mimansa, Nyay, Vaisheshik, Yoga and Sankhya.
Vyakaran was promoted by saint Panini, Poorva Mimansa by Jaimini, Vaisheshik by Saint Kanad, Nyay by Gautam, Sankhya by Kapil and Vedanta by Ved Vyas. All of these personalities are the undisputed masters of their own scriptures. But, Shri Maharaj Ji is the source of all these scriptures and is beyond perfection. This is what the scholars of Kashi proclaimed to the world!
He is a proficient speaker capable of revealing the secrets of all scriptures in a very simple language. He is also skilled at unveiling the utmost depths of devotion and the science of its implementation in daily life. Thus, he put pure devotion in the spotlight. The maidens of Braj are the embodiment of Shri Radha Rani’s ideology of unadulterated selfless love. He is intimately familiar with enigma of that love. All the 8 symptoms of love are often exhibited in his body. Not only that, some of those symptoms can be seen in the bodies of his devotees as well. All over the world, He propagated true devotion to Shri Radha and Krishna.
Son of Mother Bhagavati, Shri Kripalu Mahaprabhu ascended in the village of Mangarh. Since the age of 16 years, Shri Maharaj Ji has strived day and night for the welfare of the public.
