Jalandhar (Punjab) witnessed the spectacle of spirituality as DJJS organized a seven day Shrimad Bhagwat Katha. The programme started (December 21st – 27th 2015) with the grand Shobha Yatra and Mangal Kalash Yatra followed by the recitation of hymns from Vedas, the most ancient Hindu Scriptures.
Devotees & followers in large number from nearby areas gathered for their active participation on this occasion. People gathered together off stage to make the event a grand success by participating in it for 7 days.
The program was adorned by the presence of eminent personalities including Vijay Sampla (Central Minister), Pawan Kumar Tinu (MLA & Chief Parliament Secretary), K.D. Bhandari (Chief Parliament Secretary), Harcharan Singh Gohalvaria (Mayor-Ludhiana), Anil Vasudev (Mayor- Pathankot), Akshit Jain (Mayor- Moga), Sunil Jyoti (Mayor- Jalandhar), Arun Khosla (Mayor- Phagwara), Sheetal Vij (Editor- Dainik Savera) and Rakesh Rathore (Ex-Mayor & BJP General Secretary, Punjab).
The Bhagavata Purana is considered to be the purest and greatest of all the Puranas since it invokes devotion towards Lord Vishnu and his various incarnations. The Padma Purana categorizes Bhagavata Purana as a Sattva Purana (that represents purity). It primarily focuses on Krishna since he was the complete incarnation of Lord Vishnu, the Lila-Purushottama (the Divine Sportive Form of God).
The Orator Sadhvi Vishwambhara Bharti Ji, disciple of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji flawlessly narrated Katha with innumerable shlokas and explained that, every Leela of Lord Krishna is infused with magnificent and thought provoking secrets. Their underlying meanings were relevant not only in that era but also hold infallible significance in today's age. She also explained the purpose behind the recitation of katha that is Braham Gyan (Divine knowledge). It is an eternal technique through which we can practically experience and realize god. All the people were full of emotions and the beautiful bhajans and background music caught the fancy of all the viewers.
The congregation present there gained insight into how to address problems of personal and social concern through the teachings of the Greatest Management Guru of all times, Lord Krishna.
