“Guru Gobind Dou Khade, Kaake Lagu Paaye, Balihari Guru aapne jin Govind Diyo Milay”
Saint Kabir says: Guru (master) and Govind (God) are standing together whom should I first bow my head or touch feet. Here the poet is suggesting that we have to touch guru's (teacher or master) feet first because it is he who taught us about the God.
From the time a human being is born, he/she is taught by many individuals as Gurus (masters). First one is parents and then teachers at school/university. A human being keeps learning and yearning for more as he climbs the corporate ladder. Teaching and learning happens throughout his life whether it is from peers or seniors or juniors. Amidst all this learning one learning that gets missed out is the purpose of arrival on this Earth. This is the gap that a spiritual master fills in. A true spiritual master is the only one who can direct us towards the ONLY goal of human life – that is communion with the God.
Guru Purnima is one such occasion when the mortal beings get a chance to pay gratitude and pay reverence to their spiritual master. Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) organized an extraordinary divine event on July 27, 2018 in Nurmahal Ashram to celebrate this occasion. The event witnessed remarkable presence of thousands of disciples. It commenced with the soulful prayer at the lotus feet of the perfect master of today’s era, His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji. Many disciples shared their invaluable experience and presented their heartfelt words of devotion from the dais. The team of classical musicians mesmerized the surrounding with soulful music renditions. Soon the entire atmosphere was engulfed in tranquility and divine aura of Gurudev.
Guru Purnima celebration is reflection of Master’s perfection as he flawlessly showers his loving grace in the form of divine knowledge while dismissing aptitude of the receiver. Guru Purnima is also a day for a disciple’s devotion and to demonstrate adherence towards the Guru. The day is special solely for that disciple who has solidified from within by pursuing Guru’s commandments. Connected within through the vivacious techniques of Brahm Gyan and upon realizing His supreme excellence in the human garb, a disciple is able to truly perform Guru Pooja.
A true disciple reflects on the year gone by and stands witness to Guru’s nourishing grace that leads him throughout the entire time. This event further sharpens one’s focus towards the spiritual goals. Furthermore, Guru Purnima gets the disciple ready for any obstacles or hurdles that may come in the upcoming year. Various preachers of the organization led the masses throughout the event with devotion filled sermons and inspirational musical hymns. Praying for the well-being of all, disciples meditated collectively and vowed to contribute fully to Satguru Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji’s grand mission of global peace.
