India is a land of culture and values. In ancient times, spiritually accomplished sages and seers acquired the true knowledge of spirituality and recorded it as Vedas, Upanishads, and Puranas for the future generations to practice and follow. With time, the knowledge and usage of Vedas lost its sheen. Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, DJJS, is working tirelessly in resurrecting this lost sheen through the knowledge of Brahm Gyan provided by the Perfect Master of today, H.H Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji. Gau Katha organized in Nurmahal, Punjab was one such attempt. It was held from 21 September to 25 September 2015 at 7 pm to 10 pm.
Sadhvi Sumedha Bharti Ji, Preacher Disciple of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, explained that millions of Hindus revere and worship cows. Hinduism is a religion that raises the stature of Mother to the level of Goddess. Therefore, the cow is considered a sacred animal as it provides us life sustaining milk. The cow is seen as a maternal figure, a care taker of her people. The cow is a symbol of the divine bounty of earth and hence must be protected and cared for.
As per Rig Veda, the cow is referred as divinity and that’s how Indian society started addressing cow as ‘Gau Mata’. The Churning of the Sea episode brings to light the story of the creation of the cow. Five divine Kamdhenus (wish cows), viz, Nanda, Subhadra, Surabhi, Sushila, Bahula emerged in the churning.
On the last day of Katha, the listeners displayed a great zeal and enthusiasm in recording their feedback. They told media teams that they feel awakened about the true facts of our revered cow and are full of enthusiasm. Around thousands of people actively participated in the Katha out of which many were initiated with ‘Brahm Gyan’. Chief Guests made program special by their presence and were appraised about various social programs organized by DJJS like Antarkranti, Antardrishti, Manthan, Kamdhenu, Bodh etc.
