Jagadguru Kripalu University
Most young minds never realize their true potential due to a lack of proper guidance. They join a University hoping to acquire the talents required to have a successful future, but merely earning a degree does not equip them with the tools necessary to excel amidst real-life challenges.
In order to bridge this gap, Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj envisioned a University that will not only provides quality education but will also aim at all-round personality development of the students, turning them into leaders in their chosen fields. Students joining Jagadguru Kripalu University will be greeted by a scenic green campus that is alcohol-free, drug-free, smoke-free, and purely vegetarian. The campus ambiance will be similar to a Gurukul, but with state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities. Round-the-clock security and closed-circuit television (CCTV) monitoring of public areas within the campus will protect the University community and property.
The faculty at JKU will be experts in their respective fields, with an intense desire to teach and guide the students to success. Regular interactions with industry leaders and opportunities to be part of various conferences and seminars broaden the students’ horizons. JKU will encourage students to dream big, manifest their latent abilities, and work towards their goals. Various extracurricular and social activities will be conducted to give students an opportunity to showcase their talents and serve the community, ensuring their time at Jagadguru Kripalu University is a memorable one.

Good knowledge has the power to transform lives and emancipate society. It inspires the mind, illumines the intellect, broadens the vision, and uplifts humankind. Hence, Jagadguru Kripalu University has coined its motto as “उद्धरेत् विद्यया आत्मानम् ”, which means, ”elevate yourself through knowledge.”
We firmly believe that the student years are foundational to making one’s future life a successful, happy and fulfilling one. Thus, education must aim to effectively cultivate knowledge, impart skills, boost confidence, and develop the personality.
However, for transforming lives, mere theoretical knowledge is insufficient; students must also hone the ability for its practical application. At JKU, we will equip the youth with both theoretical scholasticism and practical wisdom to unleash the power of knowledge within.
Human life is a rich and multifaceted experience, with its societal, cultural, familial and religious dimensions. Therefore, education must be well-rounded for nurturing all aspects of the personality. The inner dimensions of the personality are the mind and intellect, and quality pedagogy must focus on elevating the mind and broadening the intellect.
A University has a very important role to play in the evolution of one’s personality. It is the final leg in the journey from being a student to a successful employee or an entrepreneur. The training at Jagadguru Kripalu University will be complete in all aspects, so that the students can take their next steps with dexterity and self-confidence.
