Nothing can beat the melodious ancient Indian classical music. Full of devotion and inspiration, tuned well with the lyrics based on scriptures, spiritual music has always opened the hearts and minds of listeners. Someone has beautifully said,
“Devotional Singing must become an unbroken stream of bliss on your tongues and in your hearts; it must confer on you the uninterrupted awareness of the unity, of I and He.”
With such a beautiful essence along with the occasion of Mahashivratri, it just made the program irresistible. The scriptures profoundly describe the importance of music in the life of Lord Shiva, who actually gave birth to various nodes of classical music. We can see the Pellet Drum (Damaru) in one hand of Lord Shiva, depicting his love for eternal music.
In order to let the audience engrossed in the divine rhythm of spirituality and understand the essence of eternal music in life, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) - a non-government, non- profit and a leading spiritual organisation, head and founded by His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, organized a two-days program of devotional concert on the occasion of Mahashivratri on March 5th and 6th, 2016 at Ashram, Tarn Taran, Punjab.
The devotional concert commenced with the holy prayer at the lotus feet of Lord Shiva. The series of devotional bhajans, especially composed with the lyrics full of divine inspirations set into classical and melodious rhythm, just made the program very engrossing and enjoyable. The audience were enlightened with the words of wisdom and attained the supreme peace during the program.
The spiritual discourser of the program, Sadhvi Saumya Bharti Ji, profoundly and proudly claimed the greatness and truthfulness of the spiritual journey, which is the sole purpose of the human life. She explained the profound lyrics of some of the devotional bhajans and explained the supreme essence of each word. She described the importance of supreme knowledge- Brahm Gyan, which is the dire requirement for everyone in today’s time.
The melody and the music reverberated for those two days and filled the air with spirituality. Truly, the program made audience to switch off their minds from all materialistic and mundane thoughts and made them think about the path of truth beyond the limitations of this physical world.
“We rarely hear the inward music, but we are all dancing to it nevertheless!!!” – Rumi
