A nine-day Shrimad Bhagvat Katha was organized by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) at Ajmal Khan Park, Karol Bagh, New Delhi. In keeping with the tradition, the event started with a captivating Kalash Yatra, a peaceful and cultural procession.
The Katha orator Sadhvi Sushri Aastha Bharti Ji, disciple of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, exquisitely explained the mysteries behind divine plays of Lord Krishna who incarnated to eliminate evil forces from the society and free people from the clutches of King Kans’s wrongdoings.
Her discourses presented a perfect fusion of spirituality and social issues, highlighting that spiritual tool or divine knowledge of 'Brahmgyan' serves as a powerful medium in curbing social problems prevailing today. In the course of Katha, she raised social issues like Cow Slaughtering, Gender Equality and many more.
Lord Krishna was a divine power who propagated the divine knowledge of 'Brahmgyan'. His teachings hold the same relevance and significance even in modern times as people are confused and dismayed in present times and a need for spiritual intervention is much more needed now and hence, 'Brahmgyan' is the need of the hour to eradicate such elements.
An eye-catching exhibition on ‘Manthan’, the holistic education program of DJJS, was setup to motivate people to step forward and support this social cause. DJJS runs Sampoorn Vikas Kendras (SVKs) under ‘Manthan’ that aims to provide free education to under-privileged children. Along with providing basic education, ‘Manthan’ aims at cultivating moral ethics values in children, which have been much missing from the society today.
