Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 29, 2008
JKP, Barsana Dham, a non-profit, religious and charitable organization of the Hindu faith, responded today to allegations made by unnamed sources in a story published in the Austin American-Statesman.
Barsana Dham vehemently denies the claims made against its spiritual leaders and expressed disappointment that the American-Statesman published a story based on false and malicious allegations made by a few anonymous people.
"Anyone who has met these two respected spiritual leaders knows that these hurtful allegations are totally false," said Diwakari Devi, president of Barsana Dham. "Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj is 85 years old and Shree Swami Prakashanand Saraswati is almost 80. I encourage people to take advantage of their profound spiritual teachings while they still have the direct opportunity."
Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj is revered around the world. His ashrams, temples, schools and hospitals serve hundreds of thousands of people. His talks are widely watched on Indian, Nepalese and American television. When he speaks in a city, tens of thousands come for the opportunity to be present during his epic discourses.
Shree Swamiji has dedicated his entire life to serving humanity, upholding the tenets of the Hindu faith and guiding people to live a life of devotion to God.
Founded in 1990 by H. D. Swami Prakashanand Saraswati, the Barsana Dham Temple and ashram complex serves as the national center of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat in the United States and is one of the largest Hindu temples in North America. Barsana Dham is active in a number of local and global charitable activities including housing rehabilitation work in Central Texas, flood relief efforts for India, and the ongoing support of charitable hospital in India.
