Harpura (Punjab) witnessed transcendental event of Shri Krishna Katha, a five days spiritual program organized from 17th August, 2016 to 21st August, 2016 by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS), a socio-spiritual organization engaged in upliftment of mankind under the divine guidance of revered Gurudev, His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji (Head and Founder – DJJS).
Large number of Devotees gathered to attend this peaceful and spiritual discourse. Several dignitaries also marked their presence at this event.
Krishna is the strongest personality. By His desire alone all the universes are created and destroyed by one portion of a portion of His personal form. He is not attached to anything in this world. The only thing which can bind Him is the loving devotional service of His devotees. One who knows this perfectly well never claims anything as his own but uses everything in the service of the Lord.
The Katha orator – “Sadhvi Saumya Bharti Ji” explained various stages of Lord Krishna’s life. She beautifully narrated the story of birth of Lord Krishna. She said that “the night Krishna was born, the world favored Vasudeva who was carrying his child in the torrential rain that was flooding all over. The river Yamuna shallower itself so that Vasudeva could cross the river. Also the prison doors opened itself, making a way for him to go.
Further, elaborating about the Shri Krishna the Katha orator said that “Lord Krishna made an indelible impression upon mankind's collective consciousness—re-educating the world about devotion and dharma as well as the ultimate reality. His life was a model for people in days past, the modern world and surely for those in ages to come. His glory is unsurpassable. His story is a source of joy and inspiration for people from all walks of life.
Krishna constantly acted as the friend, philosopher and guide to Arjuna in the battlefield. Arjuna was backing down because he had to kill his own brothers and fight against his teachers. At that point Lord Krishna gave him the lesson of Bhakti Yoga which means to detach oneself from the expectation of results. He gave him the lesson in the form of The BHAGWAT GEETA.”
Lord Sri Krishna shows all His devotees how to balance materialism and spirituality. He ruled the country, advised as minister and gave the highest form knowledge to Arjuna and Uddhava. In a very clear and wonderful way the Supreme Lord Krishna describes the science of self-realization and the exact process by which a human being can establish their eternal relationship with God.
The Katha Orator concluded by saying that “The Soul, which is the part and parcel of the Supreme Soul, is an inexhaustible treasure of bliss, however, this perennial source of happiness can be harnessed only upon learning the real art of meditation i.e. “Divine Knowledge” through the Perfect Master of the time. Through this Eternal Technique we can practically experience and realize god.
