Illustrious Past – A Promising Future
The Kripalu Bagh Ashram on the blessed land next to the holy Ganges, was built in 1932 by the scholarly erudite and God realized Param Pujya Swami Kripalu Dev Ji Maharaj.
Concomitant with this noble struggle, Swami Kripalu Dev Ji along with another great spiritualist Swami Shraddhanand, who was the founder of the pure and chaste Hindus traditions of the “GURUKUL KANGRI”, organized a movement of rejuvenation of pristine Indian ancient traditions and renaissance of its glorious and hoary past whereby the country, its religion and all related aspects, covered by the gathering dust of centuries neglect, were rediscovered and extolled. It was the place where the great patriots like Sh. Rash Bihari Bose had taken shelter during their operations for freedom movements.
