The world in which we live is said to be a world of illusion. Out of ignorance and selfishness, we bind ourselves to this world through our desires and our actions, not knowing our true nature and true purpose. It says that people remain chained to the cycle of births and deaths and to the forces of nature.
Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) under the divine guidance of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji (Head & Founder – DJJS) is determined and working in the direction to spread the message of peace and bhakti by enlightening the people all over the world about the importance of Bhakti in life and the art of Spiritual Knowledge. Recently, DJJS organised 5 days Shri Krishan Katha in Ropar, Punjab from 7th to 11th May, 2017. Devotees in large number from far and nearby areas gathered for their active participation in this occasion.
Katha orator “Sadhvi Manswini Bharti Ji”, disciple of “Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji” flawlessly narrated katha with innumerable shlokas. The divinity of the Katha kept the audience captive, and the transcendental bhajans filled the atmosphere with mystical emotions. The orator stated that “Krishna is a Supreme Being, but he is also the ultimate Karma Yogi. In the entire Mahabharata, Krishna is the only character who is devoid of emotion. He is well beyond that, and is therefore way, way more evolved. Lord Krishna is known as “The Destructor of Evil”. He showed the people how to fight injustice and perform their duty. He has an eternal, blissful, spiritual body.”
Krishna constantly acted as the friend, philosopher and guide to Arjuna in the battlefield. Arjuna was backing out because he had to kill his own brothers and fight against his own people. At that point Lord Krishna gave him the lesson of Bhakti Yoga which means to detach oneself from the expectation of results. Lord Krishna narrates to Arjuna how he should do his duty and become a part of the Ultimate Soul. He gave him the lesson in the form of The “BHAGWAT GEETA”. Each and every verse is meaningful and it is related to human life. In the Gita, Krishna asserts full omnipotence as the ultimate deity, and reveals both his human and most divine form.
Sometimes God appears in this world just to show the people His original, eternal form. Sometimes He appears in other forms according to the requirements of His pastimes. Being God, Lord Krishna could have accomplished everything himself single-handedly and taken all the credit. But probably that’s what leadership all about not to hog the limelight yourself but to make everything a participatory task. The divine messenger Lord Krishna stressed on the importance of Dharma (Righteousness) and good Karma (Deeds) as a way to attain Moksha (salvation). According to him joy, sorrow, grief, happiness are all maya (illusion); and only the love between God and the devotee is real.”
The orator voiced that “the aim of life is inquiry into the Truth, and not the desire for enjoyment in heaven. Those who possess the knowledge of the Truth, call the knowledge of non-duality as the Truth. Sadhvi Ji also explained that the main purpose of the katha was to bring back the lost lustre and infuse each life with divinity through the message of “Brahm Gyan” so that every soul is blessed and Peace reigns supreme.
