In perpetuation of the spiritual programs conducted by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, Shiv Katha was a valued addition in the land of Tarn Taran, Punjab. The success of the five days program from 13th to 17th June’2017 can be measured by large gathering of devotees getting attracted in to the main auditorium. Sadhvi Sumedha Bharti Ji, dedicated disciple of Satguru Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, was the main speaker on all the four days. Sadhvi Ji spoke very knowledgeably on how Shiv Katha is vital in our lives as it teaches us importance of progression of our virtues and destruction of our vices. Our vices can only be destroyed with true realization through Brahm Gyan. Brahm Gyan, is an eternal technique of opening of the third eye, situated between the two eyebrows. This eye which opens towards the inside can be opened only by approaching a perfect master who has attained the level of Brahma Yogi and has freed Himself from all vices. In all images of lord Shiva, one sees this third eye opened and is believed that Lord Shiva destroys all negativities in the world.
Sadhvi Ji further explains that Lord Shiva’s image is symbolic in all respects. Another name for Lord Shiva is Neel Kanth, the one who has a blue throat. As per Shiv Mahapurana, in the beginning, before life started on earth, the oceans were churned so that land is created for living creatures to propagate. In this process, the first ingredient retrieved was gigantic quantity of poison. This poison had the ability to engulf the entire universe. In order to save the universe, Lord Shiva accepted the poison and drank the whole of it due to which his throat turned blue. Lord Shiva indicates that with the power of Brahm Gyan one can take negativities and convert them to positive traits. Lord Shiva has a snake wrapped across his neck which indicates that one should keep the enemies close to oneself so that such enemies help one to improve. Holy water flowing out from the top of Lord Shiva’s head is symbolic of the amrit or holy water which is the life force present in all humans. This holy water is realized by a meditator at the time when Brahm Gyan is bestowed on him. Lord Shiva is an epitome of sacrifice which only a Brahm Gyani disciple can imbibe with perfection in one’s character.
Sadhvi Ji said that Brahm Gyan is imparted by Satguru Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, to all people who are inquisitive and keen about self-realization. . Sadhvi Ji’s rendition of Shiv Katha was greatly appreciated by the audience and they expressed generous words of praise for all the work which DJJS has been doing on in the field of social uplift. Outside the main auditorium, volunteers remained busy rendering selfless service relating to the socio-spiritual ventures of the Sansthan, and all visitors were highly appreciative of them.
