A session of Monthly Spiritual Congregation was conducted at Divya Dham Ashram, Delhi on 5th June, 2022 by DJJS, thereby guiding the disciples for their spiritual growth. Thousands of devotees gathered at the venue. Series of devotional divine songs connected each one with the supreme energy within.
The learned preacher disciples of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji (Head and Founder, DJJS) explained that the main reason for the widespread unrest in the present time is the negativity prevailing in the thoughts of human beings. Today, a man is seen losing qualities like tolerance and patience. Even a small thing bothers a person in today’s time to the extent that ultimately it leads to giving up on life and he falls into the abyss of depression.
A man today is running here and there in search of happiness and peace, which he finds in small bits in the material things of the world, but with time, its effect diminishes. The question here is that, is there any everlasting source of happiness to eradicate the deep rooted sadness in human heart? Well, our scriptures and saints have already found this fountain of joy.
Paramahansa Yogananda once said that “Mankind is engaged in an eternal quest for that ‘something else’ he hopes will bring him happiness, complete and unending. But, for those individual souls who have sought and found God, the search is over: HE is that 'Something Else'.” The preacher disciples highlighted that Meditation based on True Spiritual enlightenment by the grace of a Perfect Spiritual Mentor of the time, can alone eradicate this universal common problem like negativity and depression from its roots.
Considering the innumerable benefits of meditation, one should practice it regularly and try to make it an important part of life. Lord Krishna says in Bhagvad Gita: As the blistering fire converts firewood to ashes, O Arjuna, so does the fire of knowledge burn to ashes all reactions to material activities (Ch. 4, Verse 37). The inner light, which is observed during true meditation, is the axe that cuts the roots of the mental vices. The eternal method of meditation taught by the Perfect Spiritual Mentors of the times protects us from all kinds of physical and mental diseases and sufferings. Thus, the fire of Divine Knowledge blazing within, all our karmas are incinerated; the very seeds are burnt before they can fructify to torment our physical and mental self.
Another benefit of the eternal technique of meditation lies in the fact that the ego, which separates us from our true identity, is gradually removed. It must be understood that sooner or later, this body is going to return to dust. Irrespective of how much we try to heal it, it will succumb one day. Before that day comes, make good use of the time by meditating upon soul. If we shift our attention to the Soul, one can harness everlasting happiness and fullness.
By the grace of Gurudev, the program was successfully concluded with group meditation. With the inspiring devotional discourses, devotees were filled with determination and total dedication for Meditation.
