  • People considering visiting and especially brining their children should do a simple google search on this place and why the name was changed in the mid-2000's from Barsana Dham. This temple's first managing guru Saraswami Pranantha (sp.) spent years sexually and emotionally abusing young girls and women who were part of the ashram. In 2007, three young women went to the police and the guru was charged with 20 counts of sexual abuse. He was sentenced to 14 years in prison for each count. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the ashram members closed ranks and supported the guru instead of the victims, posting $1 million bail, which allowed him to flee before sentencing. The guru has since been seen outside New Delhi, India and US authorities are still working to capture him. After the guru fled, the ashram members again put children and women at risk by placing the Indian guru Kripalu (Saraswami's guru) as the manager of Barsana Dham. Kripalu was charged with rape, and accused of numerous rapes of women and young girls in Indian and Thailand. The ashram also changed its name in order to hide from its disgusting past. Although Kripalu died recently, why would anyone want to support or visit an organization that facilitated child abuse and remains unapologetic in their support for two pedophile gurus? Additionally, Kripalu was known for charging followers $200 to spend ten minutes in his presence or $2,500 to eat dinner with him, and this is from a religious organization that supposedly renounces worldly attachments. Please support the brave victims who came forward and do not give this group your money or time.
  • This is a beautiful place, filled with divine vibrations. The main prayer hall has a skydome surrounded by quotations from scriptures like Gita and Ramayana that refer to surrendering oneself to God. Temple walls outside have beautiful carvings of Radha Krishna. There is a shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva. There is also large pond with lotus flowers. There are flowers and trees everywhere on their 200+ acre land, and a very serene atmosphere for meditation. Everyone is welcomed here. I found the volunteers to be very humble and friendly. Food served is simple, healthy, and satvic. They celebrate all Indian festivals. There are week long family camps multiple times a year and other events with programming for both adults and kids of all ages. I feel fortunate to have found this here in the US. Being born in a Sikh family, I grew up learning the importance of surrender and faith in God and Guru. This truly came to life after coming here. The teachings are authentic and represent Sanatan Dharma. Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj is a SatGuru (True Saint). If you are interested in God realization, start by reading Prem Ras Siddhant (available in their Gift shop). Listen to the chantings and mediate on the beautiful moortis of Radha Krishna and it really will purify you inside out and you will experience real joy. Jai Shri Radhey!
