Universally, a devotional Bhajan or Prayer is acknowledged as a natural human expression of love and gratitude for the God. Singing and listening bhajans in the praise of the almighty provides respite to the mind and fills the heart with joy, peace, and radiance. It is a perfect antidote to fear, anxiety and alienation. When a devotional song is played or sung, it cleanses the atmosphere and fills the place with positive energy. To invigorate the relevance of our ancient legacy of devotional music to the spiritual devotees, with immense blessings of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, DJJS organized a Devotional Concert ‘Bhaj Govindam’ (Prabhu Charno Mai Saras Samarpan) on June 8th, 2019 at Hoshiarpur, Punjab. A Series of devotional bhajans and thought-provoking renditions presented by Sadhvi Rupeshwari Bharti Ji aroused the innate divinity of the huge throng of spiritual aspirants attending the devotional concert and beautifully conveyed the essence and inner science behind the devotional music.
Sadhvi Ji highlighted the importance of ‘Nada’ (instrument) and stated that, out of the four Vedas, 'Samveda' is Veda of melodies, bhajans and chants. Bhajan and devotional prayers emerged from Nada Brahma which is a primordial sound full of sacredness and bliss. These sounds are considered to be the catalyst in experiencing the ultimate reality of supreme. The level of contentment and serenity derived from singing and listening to devotional bhajans or prayers are unparallel. Not only it impart relaxation and peace of mind but also acts as an antidepressant and able to transform our destructive thoughts and actions to positive ones. As per research, it has been found that listening to bhajans and chants activate our nerve cells. It has an ability to increase awareness of our surroundings and helps in building human qualities.
Sadhvi Ji remarked that bhajans borne of positive thoughts create positive vibrations and vice-versa. Only when inner wisdom dawns, the attitude becomes positive. Bhajan is a spiritual discipline aimed at concentrating the mind on the supreme. Through the divine knowledge of self only, one can merge in the divine being and experience the bliss of one's true self. Love and devotion for God help people tread the path of righteousness. It is a practical way of maintaining harmony in society. Self-realization awakens noble virtues and instills our hearts with happiness, gratitude, forgiveness, and compassion.
The spiritual orator elucidated that for expressing our true devotion to God, one needs to establish a real connection with him. Just like a transmitter which emits sound waves to establish connection with its listener, we too should pray to be blessed with the divine technique of reaching out directly to the God. Once the inner divine link of a devotee is activated, a disciple gets to practically worship God.
Sadhvi Ji concluded that His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji is a munificent master who provides his sacred auspices to the truth seekers by elucidating the divine theory of Brahm Gyan through a real visible experience. Our continual surrender at the lotus feet of a spiritual healer is fundamental to self-transformation. Daily Meditation acts like a catalyst that helps us to surrender and attain peace of mind. This is the only route to World Peace and a real chance to make this world a better place to live in.
