The midnight of August 15, 1947 is memorable for every Indian on earth, as it is the time, when India gained independence from the stranglehold of the mighty British. The otherwise suppressed tri-colored flag of India was given its due respect, when it was hoisted in the midnight of the Independence Day. Since then, the red-letter day is celebrated with pomp and gaiety, across the length and breadth of India. Cultural programs and flag-hoisting ceremonies are the predominant affairs of the day, while colorful kites fill the skies in the evening, to symbolize freedom. People indulge themselves in remembering the heroes of the freedom struggle reverently and pay homage to them.
But does independence mean only to have the right to do anything on one’s own will, or is it getting prodded by the enslavement of anything at one's intellectual, mental or soul levels? Albert Einstein ones said:
"Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty".
This quote of him depicts a deep truth which our Indian scriptures also raise aloud, that freedom or independence can only and only be achieved when a person realizes himself from within, and after that freedom as attributed, oozes out of one’s personality very naturally. Keeping this main point in focus, this year various programs have been organized at pan India level by the branches of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan under its drug abuse eradication program, Bodh in order to celebrate this year's Independence Day symbolically at a grandeur imbibing the benignly exalting teachings of our honored mentor, His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj ji.
