“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.” The above excerpt by Saint Rumi entails the entire cosmic plan. Rumi states that the greater plan of the Master does not get revealed to you through this world but also through you to the world. Master shapes such individuals who can do His work throughout the society and enlighten individuals from all creeds and nations. One candle lights the next, which lights the following, and so on and so forth. In this manner, the entire world is enlightened emitting blissful rays of peace and harmony. Such were the lessons imparted throughout the Monthly Spiritual Congregation held at Divya Dham Ashram on Sunday, November 5, 2017. His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji’s grace showered on his devotees once again this month through this event.
A perfect master chisels the deformities in His pupil’s life and brings about a shape that the society can benefit from. Multiple examples of such forms are seen throughout the organization, who is working endlessly yet collectively to bring about change in the mundane norms. These changes start at the individual level when one is initiated into the practice of Brahm Gyan, the eternal self-realization technique.
A true spiritual congregation is rare to find in the current-day façade full society, one that would work on individuals holistically, not just the body or the mind, but also the underlying energy, the spirit within. Such an event is held only to align the wandering minds into the queue of spiritual progress that is necessary to break away from the rat race the world practices. Sermons and the devotional music enthrall within all the individuality as well as the universal brotherhood that is necessary to unite the world.
Although generalized, the sermon speaks to each attendee mending the minds on a personal and an individual level. It serves as a reminder to walk together, faithfully, and with un-shattered determination. Following the commandments of the Master enables one to realize the grand cosmos within and the depth of the existence. Therefore, one realizes that the drop is not merely a part of the ocean but the ocean in its entirety, holding immense practical potential.
