Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS), under the divine guidance of HIS Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, organized a Shrimad Bhagwat Katha Gyan Yagya in New Delhi from March 28 to April 3, 2015. The programme started with grand Mangal Kalash Yatra followed by the recitation of Vedic Hymns. The recitation of Vedic chants cleansed the environment, made it pure and provided a perfect platform to communicate effectively.
The Bhagwat Purana is one of the oldest Maha Puranic scripture of Hinduism, which focuses on Bhakti to the Ultimate Supreme Power- the Lord Vishnu. In his spiritual discourses, HIS Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji often portrays Krishna as a multi-faceted personality who is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent. Every act of the Lord is infused with magnificent and thought provoking secrets which can’t be fathomed with our minds alone. Their underlying meanings were relevant not only in that era, but also hold infallible significance in today's age.
The various stories narrated by Sadhvi Aastha Bharti Ji, daughter disciple of HIS Holiness Shri Ashutosh Mahahraj ji, carry in them a symbolic meaning and message about how we should live our life and connect with the Supreme Lord. Each of these events in the life of Krishna was HIS divine play to explain a deep routed meaning to the mankind and thereby revealed HIS being absolute and complete whether it is bhakti, knowledge, love, bliss or guiding the path of disciples to reach HIM through Brahm Gyan. The discourse was accompanied by devotional and soulful bhajans.
The occasion also served as a perfect platform to voice the message of animal protection particularly cows which are extremely revered in our Indian culture but are facing large scale slaughter and inhuman treatment. A project Kamdhenu (started by DJJS) works towards conservation and propagation of this holy species.
Katha also showcased an exhibition showing different social projects being executed by DJJS under the divine guidance of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj ji like Antardrishti (welfare program for the visually impaired) , Antarkranti (prison reformation program), Manthan (holistic education programme for the underprivileged), PEACE workshops, BODH (drug de-addiction program), Santulan (women empowerment program) etc. People took deep interests in these projects and showed inclination to be associated with these socio-spiritual programs for the benefit of self and society at large.
The katha concluded with a grand yagya in which the katha orator and her entire team were a part. The purpose of the katha was to spread the message of ‘Brahm Gyan’ among the masses and to encourage them to walk the path of Bhakti and find the True knowledge and bliss. The purpose was fulfilled since the katha was attended by an audience of over a thousand with scores of people being initiated into Brahm Gyan, with the divine grace of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji.
