When the real history of India will be unearthed, it will be proved that, as in matters of religion, so in fine arts, India is the primal Guru of the whole world
- Swami Vivekananda
Republic Day, celebrated on 26th of January every year marks a significant milestone in the history of this country. This day is directly connected to Constitution of India, which is the supreme law of this nation. Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (“DJJS”) organized a motivational event on the occasion of 74th Republic Day on 26th January, 2023 at Divya Dham Ashram, Delhi under the theme “Sankalp Mai Dridhata”. This program reminded the disciples about the spiritual aim of life and filled their hearts with determination so that they can walk on the path of Bhakti with more zeal. While working in the material world for earning the livelihood, it usually happens that we tend to forget the spiritual aim of life. Such motivational spiritual sessions helps the Disciples to re-gain the mental and spiritual strength to dive deeply in their inner ocean by mediating ardently.
The Flag hosting ceremony invoked the feeling of patriotism in the hearts of the people. It reminded everyone about the great freedom fighters who sacrificed their life for their motherland and strengthened the commitment for nation-building. Further, the plays on Sewak Dharma, Hanuman, Baba Farid and Vivekanand by the volunteers and Disciples of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji (Head and Founder, DJJS) reinforced the feeling of responsibility towards Gurudev’s mission and Nation at large amongst disciples.
The motivational discourses by DJJS Representatives (Preacher Disciples of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, Head and Founder, DJJS) encouraged the Disciples to tread on the path of spirituality with full zeal and fervor. They said that spirituality is the soul of India. People from all over the world come to this land of saints in search of truth, happiness and peace. However, it is unfortunate on the part of those who have been blessed to be born on this auspicious land, but still are missing out this greatest tool (Spirituality) to live a perfectly blessed life. It is a common notion that spirituality is out of fashion or for old ones. However, the truth is; spirituality is the foundation for a perfect, blessed, happy and peaceful life. On the top of it, it leads one to the real aim of life.
Not only this, true Spirituality even helps an individual to fulfill all their worldly responsibilities in a much effective way. It teaches the real art of living. The sooner we understand this, the sooner we will be able to take a step forward for this eternal path. The essence of spirituality is the eternal science of Brahm Gyan, which is bestowed upon a Disciple by the Perfect Spiritual Master of the time. Regular practice on this technique establishes peace within and without. Swami Vivekananda once said “The Indian nation cannot be killed. Deathless it stands, and it will stand so long as that spirit shall remain as the background, so long as her people do not give up their spirituality”.
On this pious day filled with patriotic emotions, DJJS representatives concluded that to make India reach to the zenith of excellence in every field, let us connect ourselves to its Atman- Spirituality. For this is the real way of celebrating ‘Republic Day.’
