Studies all over the world prove that stress level in youth are staggeringly high and depression is among the leading causes of disability worldwide. More than eighty percent of people feel stressed in their day to day lives. Stress can lead to severe health issues like headaches, insomnia, high blood pressure, weak immune system etc. Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, a socio-spiritual organization working under the guidance of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, was invited to address such serious issue. The lecture was delivered on 31st January 2019 in Institute of Hotel Management, Catering Technology & Applied Nutrition, District Kurukshetra, Haryana.
Sadhvi Prajeeta Bharti Ji revealed that modern psychology’s approach is often based on the concept of a human as a biological and mental being and doesn’t take into account the spiritual dimensions of life. The psychologists’ research and advice are, therefore, helpful only up to a certain limit. Thus they have prescribed certain favourable mental attitudes and drugs to combat anxieties that arise from inevitable human crises. But despite the successes of their techniques, psychologists know little of how to remove the root cause of stress.
She resorted to spiritual texts to provide a solution to this problem and stated Lord Krishna in the transcendental epic Bhagavad-Gita, gives directions to his friend Arjuna, a warrior who is suffering in a situation of extreme stress on the battlefield. Krishna observes that Arjuna has become overwhelmed by fear and ignorance. Krishna, therefore, begins his instructions by informing Arjuna of a Divine Knowledge. After a series of questions and answers when Krishna saw that Arjuna’s anxiety is not settling, Krishna revealed to him the nature of the real self which is beyond the body and mind. The soul, which is our real identity, is not subject to any kind of destruction, Krishna said. The soul is also by nature full of bliss and knowledge, and can be realized by direct perception of god with the grace of a perfect master, Sadhvi Ji profoundly stated. Each of us encounters several battlefields every day, both mentally as well as physically. As we are threatened by inevitable attacks from disease, failures, old age, and ultimately death, ‘Brahm Gyan’ alone is the savior. Through the perfect master of today, Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, one can attain Brahm Gyan and win in the battlefield of everyday life.
