Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj is the original Jagadguru in the present age. What makes Shri Maharaj Ji uniquely different from all others is that he was honoured with the special title of Jagadguruttam (Supreme amongst Jagadgurus). According to the tradition being followed to date, the title of Jagadguru is bestowed on the invincible contestant in a debate on the sacred scriptures. How and why did this exceptional episode of honouring Shri Maharaj Ji with the title of Jagadguruttam happen? This is a question which naturally arises in the mind. In fact, Shri Maharaj Ji is endowed with qualities never before manifested in any Jagadguru. We need to therefore deliberate on these distinguishing characteristics, inspired by which, the acharyas of Kashi Vidvat Parishat honoured him with the title of Jagadguruttam.
