Perform all thy actions with mind focussed on the Divine, renouncing attachment and looking upon success and failure with an equal eye. Spirituality implies equanimity - The Bhagwad Gita
Nowadays, everyone is leading a life of endless desires and losing out on basic human values. Our lives have become so materialistic that we have lost connection with our inner divine self. We have forgotten the ultimate purpose of our being.
This detachment of us, human beings with our real divine self has made us more selfish and self-centred, owing to which we are leading our world towards destruction.
We are exploiting Mother Nature in every possible way and there is so much violence and chaos all over the world. All because humans have ceased to be humans any more.
In some ways we are repeating our past history, where evil started to devour the good and Lord Vishnu had to manifest in human garb to demolish evil & establish righteousness. Humans are God’s best creation but when we forget the reason of our existence, we become evil. God has bestowed us with this precious human life to realise our divine self. Our only goal should be- to worship HIM and know HIM.
With the purpose of imbibing the supreme essence of spirituality, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) - a socio-spiritual and non-profit organization, headed and founded by His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, organized Shrimad Bhagwat Katha from 15 Nov to 21 Nov, 2015 at Limdi, Vadodara.
It was a 7-day programme. Everyday the program commenced with the recitation of Vedic Hymns in Sanskrit by the devotees of our revered Gurudev. The Katha orator, Sadhvi Padamhasta Bharti Ji, disciple of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, described about the avatar of Shri Krishna as the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who was born in Dwapara Yuga and was called the ‘Dark One’. Sadhvi Ji beautifully articulated the Lord’s divine plays and explained how each of them was a movement to address the many social issues of the time.
Sri Krishna made an indelible impression upon mankind's collective consciousness—re-educating the world about devotion and dharma, as well as the ultimate reality.
Throughout his life, Krishna played so many roles, that of a son, a brother, a charioteer, a warrior, a disciple, a guru, a shepherd, a king, a messenger etc., never forgetting that they were just roles, and that His true nature was divine, the ever blissful consciousness. This was perhaps His greatest teaching, to perform all our worldly duties without any attachment and never forgetting our true divine nature.
The Katha Orator further elucidated the importance of spirituality in our lives and how the teachings of the Greatest Management Guru of all times, Lord Krishna, can help us deal with our day-to-day challenges. The 7-day program left the audiences wanting for more.
