Sharat Poornima is an auspicious full moon night when maharaas occurred 5,000 years ago. On this night, Radha Krishn revealed maharaas ras on our earth as They performed the maharaas leela. In the maharaas leela uncountable gopis participate and Shree Krishn, multiplying Himself into as many forms as there are gopis, dances with each gopi individually in concentric rings. Radha and Krishn are in the very center and lead the maharaas.
Raas is defined as the accumulated sweetness of all the forms of Divine Blissfullness combined into one leela. And maharaas is the ultimate revelation of raas. Its greatness can be guessed by the fact that even God Shiv and Goddess Lakshmi desired to join and experience it.
It was at midnight of the same Sharad Poornima night in 1922 that Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj appeared in this world. He taught the path of raganuga bhakti and inspired souls to worship Radha Krishn in the same style as the gopis. Those who do bhakti according to his teachings are progressing towards the attainment of that ultimate Bliss of maharaas.
