The word ‘guru’ has a relevant meaning in Sanskrit, heavy, one that protects and nurtures. A true guru is one who not only protects but also provides sweet nectars of spiritual freedom. His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji is inspiring innumerable individuals to sail on the path of spirituality. Life in the shelter of a true Master is never smooth sailing. As Swami Vivekananda wisely proclaims, 'In a day, when you don't come across any problems, you can be sure that you are travelling on a wrong path'. Monthly Congregation at Divya Dham Ashram, Delhi held on Sunday, September 3, 2017 works to connect all to the Supreme. As a devotee walks on the path, problems continue to surface but guidance from master also continues to come from within.
A rest from the metropolitan race, an escape from the materialistic mindset, and an abode of everlasting peace, the eternal practice of Brahm Gyan is emphasized repeatedly during the monthly congregation. Disciples of His Holiness, through the inspirational sermon and the mesmerizing devotional series of songs, instill within all the enthusiasm of continuity on the path shown by Guru.
Attendees feel immensely blessed to be part of such a gathering where a true Guru imparts the zeal to each disciple. With the grace of His Holiness, disciples feel honored and grateful to be recipients of such high moral values month after month. Not only do they look forward to the Congregation, they also wish to contribute to the higher cause that Gurudev is pursuing.
Implementing the teachings learnt at the discourse enables the devotees to rise above the situational difficulties and reap the fruits of spirituality such as wisdom, selflessness, devotion, and universal brotherhood. Just as a battery needs recharging, the disciples feel the need of such congregations to steadfast on the path set by Master. Wisdom-filled words heard at the mass stay with each disciple as the torchlight through the dark surroundings. This is what provides the fervor to overcome any difficulties that become hurdles in the journey of the disciple. Thus the disciple is able to distinguish the right from wrong and choose how to live extraordinarily in today’s mundane society.
