Peace, Strong will, and Strength in Unity were the divine flavours, dissipating throughout the Divya Dham Ashram’s Monthly Congregation, organized by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan on October 4, 2015. The program commenced with a series of devotional bhajans that filled the audiences’ hearts with zeal, compassion and dedication.
Present day real life examples as well as those from history were shared during the discourse by Sadhvi Aastha Bharti Ji, daughter-disciple of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji. Sadhvi Ji spoke about the challenges and hurdles that a devout believer has to go through on the path of devotion. However an ideal devotee watches out and keeps progressing no matter what the situation is. Sadhvi Deepa Bharti Ji proclaimed one must not only overcome all challenging conditions but also be ready to confront any new trials. The Satguru makes his disciples undergo these trials and tribulations to mould them into better, stronger human beings and make them more spiritually evolved.
Slip Thy dewdrop in Thy Pool,
not to lose itself,
but to enlarge itself.
As Yogananda Paramahansa urges in the prayer above, a fully devoted dewdrop will one day enlarge itself by merging into the pool of devotion. Such is the goal a Satguru sets for each disciple that comes in His shelter. Swami Vishalanand Ji, also declared that just as a drop of water struggles to reach its source, so do we, the souls must face and triumph all bewildering situations to reach our ultimate goal – The Supreme Soul.
The event left the audiences rejuvenated and acted like a catalyst in bringing the focus of their wandering minds to the lotus feet of the Master. Everyone present, walked out of the event with a stronger will to work unitedly towards the beautiful vision of World Peace, set by our revered Gurudev.
