“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”
Taking forward the agenda of “World Peace” through the eternal science of
“Self-Realization (Brahm Gyan)” under the divine mentorship of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji (Head & Founder – DJJS), DJJS organised a Devotional Concert – “Jagrati” on 6th May, 2017 in Kurukshetra, Haryana.
Large number of devotees gathered to attend this peaceful and spiritual discourse. Several dignitaries like Dr Pawan Saini (MLA-Ladwa, Dist. Kurukshetra), Sh. Ashok Sukhija (Honorary Secretary at Kurukshetra Development Board), Sh. Dharamveer Mirzapur (Dist. President BJP), Sh. Harish Ranga (Additional IGP Haryana) also marked their presence at this event.
The inspiring lyrics of devotional songs got all the attention from the minds and touched the core of hearts of the people who heard them with rapt attention. Music is a divine art, to be used not only for pleasure but as a path to God-realization. Popular songs are usually inspired through sentiment or passing interests. But a song born out of the depths of true devotion to God which provides boundless joy, is a spiritualized song. Such songs produce the fire of God-awareness whenever they are struck on the foundation stone of devotion.
Sadhvi Sumedha Bharti Ji, Orator (Disciple of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji) explained that true happiness does not depend on what others do. It is a happiness that does not come and go, rather, it is affected by the moods, words or actions of people. Our basic human needs include food, water, shelter and the air we breathe. Beyond that, our needs are spiritual. And those needs can't be met by any human being. Only God can meet them. There is a saying that, “10 percent is what happens to us and 90 percent is how we react with it”.
In today’s world, ignorance and darkness has surrounded our mind, body and soul. This has led to stress, loneliness and depression. The solution to all these problem is “Spiritual Awakening”. Eternal happiness can be attained only after knowing God. This is only possible under the mentorship of a perfect spiritual mentor because he is the only one who has already navigated the path of spirituality and can guide us through the journey of our life and motivate us for not giving up. The divine meditation under the guidance of a spiritual mentor brings wonders in a disciple’s life. Meditation has been shown to have a strong link with well-being because it calms the body, reduces stress and anxiety, and also supports positive thinking.
The devotional concert was aptly named as “Jagrati” as it provided to the people the way for Spiritual Awakening through inner enlightenment.
