The three major quotations from Brihadaranyaka Upanishad are:
Asato ma Sadgamaya
Tamaso ma jyotirgamaya
Mrutyor ma Amritamgamaya
This is a true prayer and a heartfelt cry for assistance in transcendence from a seeker admitting to the limitations of the senses. From a seeker who has realized the pain and emptiness inherent even in the abundance of everything related to this material world. This prayer is to the Satguru (Perfect Master) who alone can lead a human being from falsehood to truth, from darkness of ignorance to light of knowledge, from death to immortality. Perfect Master are such divine enlightened souls that descend on earth with a sole purpose of awakening each being to the higher consciousness away from this world of illusion which is temporary in nature, to the knowledge of Supreme Soul, through the eternal science of Self Realisation. It is the immediate and direct perception of the Inner Self (Soul/Atman) at the very moment of initiation through the subtle faculty of Third Eye or Divine Eye.
Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan invariably endeavors to demystify the correct recognition of The Perfect Master as depicted in all our scriptures, Vedas and Upanishads. Under the prudent guidance of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, a soul liberating, divine bhajan sandhya was organized with theme “Asato Ma Sadgamaya” on 14 Dec 2019 at Gurdaspur, Punjab. The melodious, soul awakening and divinity emanating lyrics with insightful meaning tuned in hearts of devotees to their inner self and soaked them with high spirits of devotion.
Sadhvi Saumya Bharti Ji rendered a beautiful discourse elucidating everyone with the inherent spiritual secrets hidden in blissful bhajans. She explained that Divine Love is the phenomena that can be experienced only at soul level. And this journey begins by knowing the soul, which is the particle of the Supreme Soul, and therefore an inexhaustible treasure of bliss. This perennial source of love and bliss can be harnessed only upon connecting with Supreme through real art of meditation revealed by the Perfect Master of the time. She further citied many examples of Satguru and disciple sagas of yesteryears and explained that Satguru is the ocean of mercy and pure love, from which even the most withered hearts can satiate their thirst of many births.
The event showcased various social initiatives and spiritual activities carried out by the organization, touching upon all the important issues related to the society. Huge number of selfless youth of Punjab was seen serving their respective roles as volunteers during the program. All connected with only one mantra of life i.e. pursuing the path of Divine Knowledge under the benevolent guidance of His Holiness. Having listened to the beautiful renditions in the form of bhajans and discourse, the devotees realised the importance of spiritual pursuit in life and what to seek from the Lord and Satguru.
