The dialogue between Sukhdev Muni and King Parikshit is considered to have spiritual significance. It is believed that the listener to this dialogue attains Moksha or liberation. The seven day Bhagwat Katha program, starting from 5th to 11th September, 2015, was marked by the audience pouring in from all corners of Delhi. The program was further graced by the presence of distinguished guests.
Sadhvi Aastha Bharti Ji, knowledgeable disciple of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, lucidly narrated the stories from Bhagwat Puran of Prahalada and his cruel father Prahalada; liberation of Gajendra the cursed elephant and the tale of churning of seas. All these stories had one underlying theme and that is- the one who surrenders oneself completely unto God, receives the greatest solace and bliss. The composer of Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran Maharishi Ved Vyas, had elaborately written these events which took place in Satyug. Sadhvi Ji explained them in the current context that minds of all human beings are filled with two types of inclinations or vibrations- positive and negative. Success of an individual depends completely on alignment of these vibrations in the positive and negative direction.
Sadhvi Ji emphasized on practical spirituality. She explained just like by pronouncing the word “sugar” several time, the sweet taste of sugar cannot be known, nor can one experience the bitter taste by saying “Bitter” several times, it is not possible for anyone to realize the existence of God just by chanting God’s name. God must be realized practically. God can be seen by human being regardless of one’s ethnicity, religion and abilities. God’s elemental form which is light can be seen even by a blind person. God’s eternal name or primordial vibration is established within us in our breathing. The names which we chant are nothing but external representation of this divine name. Sadhvi Aastha Bharti Ji said with utmost confidence that only a Brahma Yogi (a perfect Master) can initiate an individual into divine Knowledge. Once a person is initiated into divine Knowledge, he/she receives the discretion power to make knowledgeable judgement in all situations in life.
There were all praises for Sadhvi Ji for her eloquence and knowledge and her Guru’s blessing was evident from the feelings of bliss that all present on the occasion could experience.
The Katha program had several counters outside the main area, where products made by various social projects of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan were sold. These counters were led by young volunteers from various spheres of society. They have been all initiated into Brahma Gyan and are very determined and focused individuals who play several different roles in society with equal zeal and grace. When enquired, these volunteers have a cheerful disposition about their love for volunteering, as this gives them an opportunity to serve mankind which they believe is service to God.
