Divya Jyoti Ved Mandir (DJVM) is working under the aegis of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji to revive and revitalize Vedic Indian Culture by spreading the knowledge of the Vedas and rejuvenating Sanskrit, the mother of all languages. With this aim, DJVM, through its several initiatives, is bringing forth the sacred knowledge of Vedas for scholars, seekers, students, corporates and masses.
In an initiative during the pandemic, DJVM started online Shukl Yajurvediya Rudrashtadhyayi classes worldwide. In these classes, the vedic mantra chanting of Rudrashtadhyayi, popularly known as Rudri-Paath, is being taught.
On the completion of the first batch, a Convocation Ceremony was virtually organised on 10th February 2021,wherein participants received their certificates for successfully completing the classes. The programme was hosted by the teacher of the batch, DJVM Volunteer Nimish Nanda.
The event started with the melodious singing of Guru Ashtakam and proceeded to a quiz that tested how clearly the Ved Paathis can recognize the mantras and chant them. Students then shared their experiences about how during the stressful period of lockdown, these classes helped them get engaged into something productive and connected them to their vedic roots.
Swami Chidananda Ji, Preacher, DJJS, was also present during the ceremony. He congratulated the participants and told them how the Vedas are the basis of our culture and hold a very special place. He added how these classes made everyone nostalgic of their school days, the homework practice, tests and holidays.
A short video depicting the activities undertaken by DJVM in the year 2020 and 2021 was also presented. In the end, Sadhvi Deepa Bhariti Ji, Preacher, DJJS, also congratulated the participants and all the volunteers that were involved for making the classes successful. She also thanked the Admin Team for effectively managing the ceremony.
Further, she added that the ceremony is not a convocation but an inauguration- the inauguration of positivity in our lives and the divinity within. She urged the ved paathis to diligently practice the mantras everyday so as to offer their volunteer services afterwards in DJVM.
