Once again the land of Jagraon, Punjab was thrilled when Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan organized a fascinating Shri Krishan Katha from 28th March to 1st April 2018, under the divine guidance of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, founder and head of the organization. The vision of DJJS, a non-profit socio-spiritual organization is to bring about Global Peace, through spiritual awakening. This Krishna Katha was one of the many spiritual events, held across India, to spread this spiritual awareness and lay the foundation of a peaceful society.
The Katha orator Sadhvi Jayanti Bharti Ji, impressively delivered the pearls of spiritual wisdom. She explained that every incarnation of the Lord is to serve a specific purpose, that of awakening humans to realize their real goal, which is to connect to their real-self, their soul and experience salvation. Only a perfect spiritual master of the times has the power to initiate a person into this divine experience, which is the direct perception of God, which is also called ‘Brahm Gyan’. Thereafter, when the initiated person meditates, he gets purified of all the vices. Shri Krishna too was a perfect spiritual master, who is also called ‘Jagat Guru’ for this reason.
The five-day event witnessed a huge gathering, who were left captivated and by the melodious and mesmerizing bhajans presented by the team of selfless volunteers of the organization. Sadhvi Ji very beautifully narrated excerpts from Lord Krishna’s life, which teach us lessons of living a life detached from worldly attractions, despite living in the material world and staying connected to the divinity within.
Devotees experienced the beautiful emotions of love, laughter and affection when Sadhvi Ji narrated the tales of Krishna as a child, stealing butter and irritating the gopis. Though the tales from Lord Krishna’s life are not new to anyone, but the way Sadhvi Ji narrated them, explaining the spiritual significance of Lord’s actions, left the audiences’ glued to their seats all the while. They experienced all the emotions of pain when the tales of gopis yearning for Krishna’s darshan was narrated, which was evident by the tears welling up in their eyes. Sadhvi
Ji also narrated some excerpts from ‘The Mahabharta’, to emphasize the importance of a Spiritual Guru in one’s life, like the incident of Panchali’s ‘cheer-haran’, which testifies that only the Almighty can save us and help us when we are in need. Choosing the Lord over anything will guarantee victory in life. She also emphasized on how ‘Brahm Gyan’, which was bestowed on Arjun, by Lord Krishna, helped him gain clarity of purpose and motivated him to fight for the right.
The Krishan Katha was a humungous success, where thousands of devotees were left wanting for more. People were not only impressed by the way the Katha was narrated, but also by the social causes that the organization is associated with. Many people showed interest in volunteering for these social programs.
