असतो मा साद गमय, तमसो मा ज्योतिर् गमय, मृत्योर मा अमृतम् गमय
Lead us from ignorance to truth; Lead us from darkness to light; Lead us from death to deathlessness.
This prayer from the Holy Scriptures has been recited in every era. Knowingly or unknowingly, every heart looks for peace and tranquility at the end of day. All the materialistic fixtures of life do not provide the solution to the hollowness that one feels. Though society’s condition is grim today, good news is that solution is available and that too permanent.
To disperse the light of Lord everywhere in spite of ignorance of malicious desires, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) organized an insightful Shiv Katha. With the everlasting grace of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji (convener and head of DJJS), the Katha was organized from April 22nd to April 26th, 2016 in the historic city of Ludhiana, Punjab. Katha orator, Sadhvi Tripada Bharti Ji, gleamed light on the in-depth meanings of Lord Shiva’s holy attire as well as each of HIS divine plays featured in our Holy Scriptures.
Sadhvi Ji further explained that to take away pain and suffering, to rid the humans of vices, and to destroy all evils, Lord Shiva works day and night. He has been termed as ‘Triumbakam’, the one with 3 eyes. He is known to epitomize spiritual meaning of the third eye - the divine eye. According to the scriptures, all humans possess the third eye, scientifically known as the pineal gland. Once the third eye is awakened, an individual experiences the light and the true form of Lord Shiva within.
In addition to learning about Lord’s exterior look, the attendees of the katha also acquired information on how to awaken the third eye and be one with the Lord. His Holiness is continuously imparting Divine Knowledge, the scientific technique of experiencing Lord, Brahm Gyan. It is the ancient method of entrance to the inner realm of everlasting peace, tranquility, and equanimity.
