Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan organized a spectacular spiritual event of Shri Ram Katha at Rai Bareilly from 03rd - 09th November, 2015. The Katha was facilitated by DJJS’s Allahabad branch, and commenced with a Mangal Kalash Yatra which was taken out from Ram Leela ground.
The purpose of holding Ram Katha is to impart the knowledge given in Shri Ramcharitmanas, and unravel the hidden meaning contained in the divine text. The Katha Vyas Sadhvi Praveena Bharti Ji, disciple of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, beautifully elaborated the life and deeds of the supreme power –Lord Ram, the incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Sadhvi Ji gave incidences from the life of personalities from Ramcharitmanas, and acquainted the audiences with the gifts of Devotion (Bhakti), Divine Knowledge (Brahm Gyan) and Salvation (mukti). She encapsulated this by reciting a shloka; “bade bhagmanus tan pava, surdurlabh sab granthin gava”- Only humans have been given the principle and power of wisdom, and deed by the lord’s grace. The sole purpose of human life is to do the supreme work- attain Bhakti, Gyan and, Mukti from the cycles of life and death. Sadhvi Ji further went on to explain the need of a Perfect Master in one’s life.
The discourse was accompanied by devotional and soulful bhajans. The audience could be seen completely immersed. Katha also showcased an exhibition showing different projects run by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, such as Antardrishti (welfare program for the visually impaired), Antarkranti (prison reformation program), Manthan (holistic education program for the underprivileged), PEACE workshops, Bodh (drug de-addiction program), and Santulan (women empowerment program).
The Grand Yagya concluded the Katha in which the Katha Vyas and entire team were a part. A large number of people were initiated into Brahm Gyan with the Grace of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji.
The program witnessed enthusiastic participation of people from nearby areas. On the whole, the Katha proved to be a powerful medium of familiarizing the masses with the dire need to transform themselves by attaining Brahm Gyan.
