The ultimate objective of life is the spiritual uplift of the soul which is a continuous process and not sporadic. Spiritual growth requires earnest effort, dedication and true intention of a devotee. Self-surrender to the divine, absolute and sincere, at all occasions and under all circumstances at the unconscious level is extremely pertinent on the spiritual path. Surrender opens the doorways of spiritual illumination and enlightenment.
With the immense auspicious grace of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, a devotional concert on the theme 'Samarpan' was organized by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan on 29th June, 2019 at Amritsar, Punjab. The discourser of the spiritual event Sadhvi Jayanti Bharti Ji, disciple of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, blissfully articulated the spiritual significance of 'Samarpan'(Surrender) by quoting several examples from our scriptures signifying the true essence of ‘Surrender’ by a disciple in his or her spiritual journey. Melodious devotional bhajans and thought-provoking renditions invigorated the assemblage of spiritual aspirants present during the event.
The Sadhvi orator elucidated that one can submit to the demands of the external world but ‘True Surrender’ is never to a person and always to the higher life force itself. Complete Surrender can be only achieved with an undeterred devotion, whole-hearted prostration and complete reverence and obeisance at the holy feet of the profound master. Complete Surrender is an internal process of letting go of one’s fears, negative emotions, desires and vices by practicing detachment, compassion and meditation.
Sadhvi Ji explicated that a spiritual aspirant should focus on attaining the power of inner self by experiencing the magnificent supra-mental science of Self realization. It is only the ‘Eternal Name’ of the divine Lord that brings us peace, makes us internally strong and vigilant that no tornado of external circumstances or a squall of internal thoughts can distract us from the path of wisdom and truth.
The spiritual orator concluded that spiritual awakening is the prerequisite to ultimate surrender. Those who attain the realization of the Divine Lord within are not pulled by the worldly illusions and complexities of relationships. His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji is a perspicacious master who is spreading the divine vibes of inner science and facilitating the understanding of the spirituality even for a common man through the practical experimentation of ‘Brahm Gyan’. In the realm of true devotion, one should pay attention to one’s inner voice and become aware of God's energy within oneself in order to channelize it for the benefit of humanity. Total surrender to the higher power is the absolute commitment of the disciple to follow the path of wisdom, humanity and service to mankind.
