Will India Ever Have a “Me-Too” Movement? Or Will Sexually Abused Girls and Women Just Have to Continue to Suffer in Silence?


12 years old was Kripalu Maharaji's preferred age to rape girls. (Photo shared for educational purposes.)

My experience with child sex abuse in India is that Indian girls and women tend not to speak out. The main reason I have been told is shame, not only for themselves but also for their families. If a female is shamed in India, it’s highly likely that she will be blamed and no one will marry her.


This is a very sad state of affairs. I wish that India could have a me-too movement like the U.S. did over the past several years. 


However, it’s also not easy in the U.S. for many women and girls to speak out. They are often not believed and called liars, or they are slut shamed making them out to be the ones who causes the sex abuse, or they are called crazy and therefore undependable.


But when women in the U.S. launched a me-too movement, it gave a lot of women more confidence to speak out — and that helped expose many sex abusers and rapists. 


This is not to say that all the women and girls in the U.S. speak out about their abuse. The photo above is of a little girl in the U.S. and her grandmother. The grandmother put her in the position of being sexually abused by Kripalu Maharaji at about 12 years old when he came with his entourage to the U.S. in 2004/2007. During his 2007 trip, the girl was his favorite person in the whole ashram for the duration of his stay.


The Three Greedy Didis stayed in close contact with her throughout the years. Perhaps it was to help keep her quiet about what happened to her, but also to lure her into the organization when she reached 18 years old. However, that girl's life took a different turn. She got a higher education and got married.


Yet, she has never spoken out about her abuse in JKP. If I had to guess I would say it’s also because she is trying to protect her grandmother. Also her mother, who got on the witness stand at the criminal trial for child sex abuse case of Swami Prakashanand Saraswati. She gave a testimony to try and help the guru get off of his crimes. However, she was a useless witness, like all of his so-called witnesses were. For one thing, they all lied by omission or commission.


Regarding the girl, another reason she may not be speaking out about her abuse by Kripalu is based on something I recently was told by a reliable insider. Allegedly, this girl not only had sexual relations with Kripalu, but also with one of his three main grandsons. Apparently, she had a huge crush on the boy, who would have been in his late 20s or early 30s at the time. 


What’s more, allegedly someone took photos of the encounter. If this abuse happened, and if there are photos, is she being threatened? Is she being told that the photos will become public if she ever dares to speak out — or it's perhaps implied? I do not know the answers. But I do know if this girl ever got the nerve to do the right thing and tell about her experiences in this organization, she might be able to expose the whole sham.


However, I wish that more Indian girl victims of Kripalu would speak out. I wish they could gather their inner warrior to tell what really happened to them behind closed doors. I understand why they don’t. But I wish they could rise above the cultural imperative to protect male sex abusers and tell the truth.


They could even do it anonymously. This is something that occurred recently in the U.S. Five females from a cult were sexually abused. All five spoke out anonymously. As a result, the sex abuser was tried and convicted. 


Yes, I know that Kripalu Maharaji is dead now. But his legacy lives on — the organization is fooling people, including young people, into thinking it's a pure spiritual organization, when it’s anything but that. It was and is an abusive organization that ruins people's lives. You will never get spiritual enlightenment in JKP — it's a world of darkness. You'll ruin another one of your lives on earth.


Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat has benefited for too long from the fact that the abused girls and women will not speak out. Isn't it time?

Update on My Book — "Sex, Lies, and Two Hindu Gurus" (The Book JKP Does NOT Want You to Read)

I receive many messages from people asking questions about Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat — but I have already addressed most of their questions in my book: Sex, Lies, and Two Hindu Gurus.


Please, if you really want to know the truth about this organization and its founder, Kripalu Maharaji, read the book. The blog posts on this website are also revealing. But my book has the whole story — from A to Z — including many of the secrets of Kripalu’s 60-year sex cult posing as a “spiritual organization.”


You can purchase the book on Amazon: 


Buy the book in the U.S. and every country but India: click here


Buy the book in India: click here


Also, I have an exciting update on my book, which I’m happy to share. In 2023, my book was optioned by a very prestigious multi-media production company (optioned means they are considering turning the book into a movie or show).


This production company already has movies, documentaries, and television shows on many streaming platforms, like Netflix. They are now considering how to tell a story about the dark side of JKP.


If they do produce a story based on my book, it will be a great opportunity to educate more people about the truth of this organization and help them steer clear — for the well being of themselves and their family members.


You can be sure this will NOT be good news to JKP. After all, they spent millions to try to silence my book. The organization quite literally tried to bomb, bury, and ban my book.


JKP’s first attempt was a cyber-bomb


JKP hired a dark-web cyber-criminal and paid him over a million US dollars to cyber-bomb my blog with a DDoS attack. An insider shared the whole story with me. They made the plan in the guru’s bedroom. Gathered the money. And instructed a devotee to pay the cyber-criminal to bomb my blog. 


They all cheered when it happened — including Kripalu Maharaji, Prakashanand Saraswati, and all the corrupt devotees with them. However, what they didn’t count on was that I would just move my blog — to Blogger, which is owned by Google. I doubt they will try and cyber-bomb Google!


JKP’s second attempt was to bury my book


The next step JKP took to silence my book, was to hire a law firm to write a letter to Amazon to tell them to remove my book from their website.


Amazon wrote back and said: “Take up your issue with the author” and Amazon copied me on the email. So I saw JKP’s whole scheme with my own two eyes. Of course, my book is still on Amazon.

JKP’s third attempt was to ban my book


Finally, JKP has banned all devotees from reading my book. In this way, they are a lot like American Republicans, who are attempting to ban books that tell people the truth on a wide range of topics.

What Doesn't JKP Want You to Know?

If you want to know the secrets about JKP, you should consider reading the book that JKP tried to bomb, bury, and ban — Sex, Lies, and Two Hindu Gurus


Discover exactly what they don’t want you to know!!


Happy New Year in 2024!!


P.S. As part of my long and difficult journey of healing from a wicked cult, I have changed my name to Aya Ray — meaning ray of light. I like to think of it as my freedom name. (Rishika was my nickname that I chose just after escaping the JKP cult.)

Why Do Locations Around the World Operating for Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat Go By So Many Different Names?

Image of the newest JKP temple under construction in Los Angeles, California, USA, apparently. It is apparently going to be called Radha Govinda Dham LA. (Image shared for educational purposes only.)


Typically, when an organization wants to build a name for itself, it consistently uses the same name no matter where it operates around the world. Consider, for example, Transcendental Meditation. The organization has one name. Another example is ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness). No matter where their organization gathers and meets it has one single name.


So why doesn’t Kripalu Maharaji temples and satellite location around the world go by so many different names? I pulled together a list of the ones I could find.


What do the 16 names below have in common? (See my answer after the list.)


Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat (formerly Divine Love Mission)


Radha Madhav Dham and Shree Raseshwari Radha Rani Temple (Austin, TX)

(formerly Barsana Dham Ashram and the International Society for Divine Love)


JKYog (Dallas)


Shree Kripalu Kunj Ashram (Houston)


Yugal Kunj (Atlanta)


Radha Govinda Dham (Los Angeles – under construction)


Sadhana Mandir (Toronto, Canada)


Radha Govind Cultural Society (Edmonton, Canada)


Radha Madhav Society (UK)


Universal Society of Bhakti Meditation (Singapore)


Braj Gopika Seva Mission (Odisha, India)


Prem Mandir (Vrindaban, India)


Bhakti Mandir (formerly Bhakti Dham) (Manghar, India)


Kirti Maiya Mandir (formerly Rangeeli Mahal) (Barsana, India)


Golok Dham (New Delhi, India)


These names have nothing in common. 


And there is a reason why. Can you guess?


The reason is, in my opinion, because of the horrible reputation of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat. By now many people know that Kripalu Maharaji was a lifelong sex abuser and pedophile, including raping every single 12-year-old girl that came anywhere near him — with the support and assistance of their mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunties, three Greedy Didis, many female devotees, and all the female JKP preachers.


Many people regularly contact me to ask me if certain preachers are part of JKP. They are confused because the people are using different names for their organizations. 


I tell them they are using different names to try to confuse people, in my opinion, so they don’t realize that it’s all part of the same evil organization. 


That's right — every name in bold on the list above is in direct affiliation with Jagadguru Kripalu Parshat. Does this look fishy to you?

Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat Latest Money-Making Scheme is a Multi-Million Dollar "Library" - Why?

Alert — another JKP con game underway. Watch your wallet.

If you are involved in Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat in any way, shape, or form, I can guaranteed that, at some point, you'll be asked to make a big donation to "Kripalu's Library" being built in Manghar, India — his birthplace. I've been told it's going to be a high-tech, multi-media facility.

I've also been told that this is a multi-million-dollar project being overseen by one of the Three Greedy Didis favorite male devotees — a youngish, never-married leader in JKP. I know him as a very aggressive money collector. He is good with numbers and has helped the organization collect multiple millions over the years. 

I happened to receive an image of the monstrosity they are calling a "Library." See above.

When I saw that photo, the first thing I thought is that it looks like something out of a Dr. Seuss children's book. Is that where they got their inspiration for the design? See below. 

What in the holy hell is all this nonsense? Aren't saints supposed to be humble teachers of scriptures to help souls return to God? If they need a Library to house his meager collection of books and stuff, why not just make it a quiet, humble facility. Why? Because that wouldn't give them a good enough reason to pick your pockets clean.

Why is Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat hell-bent on non-stop building of everything under the sun. Likely it's to attract more devotees with money, especially wealthy older devotees. Why? Because they want all their money. They want them to buy a place from them to retire. After all, why else are they building apartments and selling them for a whopping $160,000 (US). 

This has been an ongoing project for several years. They probably got the idea when one of the first Western seniors request their own home in the ashram. They gladly obliged and then proceeded to get all of her life savings out of her. When she ran out of money, they kicked her out. 

But now they are letting people live there, if they cough up the bucks. 

I imagine one of the lures is this monstrosity they call a library. It reminds me of how they collected money for Prem Mandir for years, saying it was going to be some spiritual monument in Vrindaban. Now, from all the videos I've seen and first-hand reports, Prem Mandir is little more than a Disneyland or Las Vegas-style attraction. It's noisy, congested with gawking crowds, and lit up like the Vegas strip. Not what I call spiritual at all. 

What is the world is going into this "library"? Kripalu had produced just a few books, including chanting books. Sure there are tons of videos and audios. But you can just watch them on YouTube. After all, they are extremely repetitive. I know. I studied dozens of them while learning Hindi. 

Here's a tip. Kripalu's main message was this: "Worship me, not God."

My advice is to steer clear of JKP and all of their money-making schemes — unless you like the idea of spending the last years of your life in hell on earth. 

I'm guess one of the features of the so-called "Library" will be the declaration that Kripalu was declared "Jagadguru" by Kashi Vidvat Parishat. But that it a lie. It never happened, as I've written about before with proof. Here is more proof. See these two photos. The bottom one is the one JKP uses to say — "See, this is the day that Kripalu was honored with the Jagadguru title." 

But I happen to have a copy of the original photo — which they photoshopped to death. It's just a normal shot of a normal satsang, where a couple of people are doing arti and giving him a garland.

In the new photoshopped image, they took out the standing image of Kripalu and replaced it with a sitting image. Also, all the heads of the men in the new photo is from a photo taken in the Austin Texas ashram. I was there that day. I know whose heads they are. I saw it happen with my own eyes. 

This is just one of uncountable JKP con jobs. If you can't see that JKP is lying to you about everything, then you'll just have to waste this life being a gullible devotee of a con man and child rapist. I can't help you.

From Sex Cult to Three-Ring Circus — Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat is After Youth, But Everything Comes at a Cost


The Three Greedy Didis do everything in their power to lure kids and teenagers into their clutches — and steal their innocence and money. (Shared for educational purposes.)

In 2023, I heard from three young people with first-hand, personal experience about the Three Greedy Didis and the ashrams now. Here is what I heard — basically, Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat is a 24/7 moneymaking scam that no longer wants old people — they want your kids though apparently.

The JKP Three-Ring Circus

The first person told me that the JKP ashrams are more like a circus now than a holy place. There is a big push in Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat to attract youth — both young kids and teenagers. To do that they have put a huge emphasis on “fun” thing that kids like, like playing games and eating delicious food. (I have heard that the U.S. JKP ashram in Texas also has a huge push to attract more youth, too.)

They know kids won’t stick around if they get bored. So they have daily games for kids and sell tasty food in a canteen, like pizza, burgers, fries, and dumplings.

If you’d ever been to the India JKP ashrams in the past, you would know that you are basically starving all the time. The food served three times a day was very bland and there’s not a lot of it. If you didn’t bring your own snacks from home, you would really go hungry. That’s all changed now because they want young people. However, it all comes at a price!

In all that fun, they slip in a little bit of sadhana. I guess to just continue pretending that they are running a spiritual organization. But it was just a sex cult in the past and now it’s a circus with daily fun, games, and parties for the kids.

Youth Beware of the JKP Moneymaking Con Game

The second person I talked to allowed me to ask several questions. Here are my questions and their answers.

1—How often are they trying to get money from devotees?

They try to get money pretty much 24/7 from the devotees from when the day starts to the evening. There are multiple ways that the didis try to get money from the devotees, such as making the devotees pay money for the food or prasad that they give out and paying money to get pictures with them.

2—In what ways to they try to get money?

In the mornings, they have their zoom session where they hand out food, like sandwiches, which you have to pay around 1000 rupees for ($12). Choti didi also makes coffee that you pay around 5000 rupees for ($60). Basically every interaction with them, such as the food that they give out, comes at a price of either 1000, 2000, or 5000 rupees.

You can also pay money to bow to them before the morning sadhna. Doing aarti also comes with a price tag, which is increased on holidays, like Mother's Day. You can do pranam in Kripalu's room, but you have to pay 1000 rupees for it. There is also an opportunity to watch them sit and eat their lunch for the price of 10,000 rupees ($120).

After that they have a gassa, which is where they mix food together and hand it out to the devotees, which you have to pay money for.

They also have 2 picnics during a day — one in the morning and another in the afternoon, where there is a price to get in as well as a price for the food that the didis give out, such as bananas and chocolate sticks.

During the evening they play a ball game where they hit a ball around an area while saying radhey. If you hit one of the pictures of Kripalu or Krishna with the ball, you have to pay a fine of 1000 rupees. And if you get the ball outside of the area, then you pay a fee of 5000 rupees. It's celebrated whenever someone gets it out of the field because apparently the didis are "mahapurush," or god-realized. So anything they touch becomes prasad, which is how they justify the prices.

Paying money for the "prasad" or the food they give out helps you get closer to Golok too, apparently, as said by the seva collectors, who are the people who keep tabs on how much people owe.

The price tag of almost all the activities listed above increases whenever there is a special holiday. They also add new activities, such as paying for a davat during the holidays, too. During Mother's day, they had devotees pay to pour water on some padukas for a price. The didis were also selling the towels used to wipe the padukas for 5000 rupees. The didis also do birthday cake cutting ceremonies, where you have to pay a grand total of 1 lakh rupees ($2000) to cut a cake with the didis and take some photos with them. 

Fun fact: they actually have an entire new app that has the names of all the devotees and their pictures that they use to track the amount of money that devotees owe.

3—How often did you see the 3 didis?

I saw the didis throughout the day kind of often. They pretty much spend most of their time with their assistants who cater to their needs such as bringing them food. The devotees watch the didis eat while they go on zoom where they say radhey radhey to people. Apparently they get mad if people skip or miss out on a session. 

They also appear in the morning satsang to watch a lecture of Kripalu, which plays every morning and evening. Then do aarti before leaving. After that, they appear at the picnics in the morning and afternoon. 

 Every time they spend time with the devotees, there's always a chance at paying money, whether it's for the food that they give out, or items such as clothes and mugs that they give out. 

4—What do they spend their time doing?

In the mornings after they wake up, at around 2:40 am to 3:45 am they basically spend their time on zoom talking to devotees and handing out food.

After that they appear in the satsang hall to watch a video of Kripalu giving a lecture before doing the daily prayer and aarti.

After that they go back to their rooms until around 6:30 am where Bhadi didi (Vishaka) sits in on the satsang.

After that they lead the devotees in some weird yoga thing for like 10 minutes before going to the morning picnic.

After that they sometimes go to the store where they get devotees to buy things such as shirts and cups from them.

After they head to their rooms for a bit before having lunch and then doing their gassa thing.

After that they go back to their rooms and I guess rest or do something else.

In the afternoon they come out for the birthday cake cutting ceremonies and then they go to the afternoon picnic, where they sell stuff there too, such as cups and shawls.

After that they have their dinner before coming out for the ball game with the devotees.

After dinner they usually sit in the satsang hall for around 15 to 30 minutes before leaving to their rooms for the night.

They don't really do much other than that. 

5—Are kripalu’s grandsons there?

Kripalu's grandsons weren't there, but I do know that they (and the didis) request clothes and other things from devotees. They basically get devotees to buy large amounts of clothes and anything else they want. They make them take pictures of it before sending the pictures to them on Whatsapp. Then they'll pick which clothes they like and don't like from there.

I know this because my mom always goes on a huge clothes shopping spree before leaving for the ashrams.

Other than that, the grandsons and the brothers of the didis don't usually come to the ashrams unless it's for a special holiday, like guru poornima or Kripalu's birthday. 

6—What is the main message about Kripalu these days?

The main message about Kripalu is pretty much the same as it's always been, that he's the ultimate jagadguru and that he's the personification of Radha and Krishna. They always play multiple lectures and videos of him a day and the didis always talk about him in front of the devotees. 

7—What is your general impression of everything?

My general impression is that it's pretty much been the same since I was there a few years ago. Not much has changed from my experience in being at the past ashrams. There are definitely a lot of creepy vibes though, and you get the sense that the people there aren't truly happy being there.

During one of my past experiences at the ashram, I overheard one of the seva collectors telling my mom that she took at least one painkiller a day. I also overheard one of the other devotees mention how they barely get enough sleep. 

8—What about photos?

They actually discourage people from taking pictures of the didis.

9—Any other news?

They got the government to officially rename the village of Mangarh, where Kripalu was born, into Kripalu Dham Mangarh for whatever reason. Speaking of mangarh, it apparently now costs 1 crore rupees to get your own room in Mangarh, which is around $160,000 US.

Also, there was a fever going around the ashram where people were getting sick and had to be quarantined in their rooms (probably COVID again).

Despite that however, basically no one in the ashram was wearing a mask, not even the didis themselves.

Tripling their Money Collection

A third person told me that the Three Greedy Didis do not only make money from the people visiting in the ashrams. They also broadcast nearly everything they do over Zoom and make those remote devotees pay too, like in the photo below, taken in the Austin, Texas ashram.

Also, they encourage people from around the world to pay to tune in every day for their talks and meals.

This youth told me: “This is not a good organization. It feels as if money is their main concern. They regularly harassed me to send them more and more money. If they consider their organization to be a real one why isn’t their focus on leading people to God?


"At the time, I didn't even realize that I was slowly going deeper and deeper in JKP.I finally woke up and realized what bad I am doing to myself by being associated with JKP. I got so close that I was giving them money whenever they asked. I was giving them money for so many things:

  • 8000 rupees for what they said was Kripalu last bhajan
  • 5000 rupees for cds in their shop
  • 500 rupees a month for their their app 

Now I know they saw me as a child who's parents will give him money whenever he asks. But that is their hard-earned money. 

I was hypnotized. But then I finally woke up. I realized the harm that I'm doing to myself by being associated with JKP. I finally got out. They harassed me to try and get me back in. But I knew they were all frauds."

Here is a photo from the Austin, Texas JKP ashram where devotees are gathered for a zoom to watch the Three Greedy Didis eat. Everyone present in the room has to pay for the privilege of attending from around the world. (Shared for educational purposes.)
