Salutations to Lord Krishna, the Supreme Lord, who incarnated in the human form for the benefit of His devotees and to destroy wickedness and establish righteousness on Planet Earth. We can count the stars and the particles of sand on the seashore but it is not possible to count the marvelous and heroic deeds and glorious actions of Sri Krishna, the Lord of the three worlds.
Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) under the divine mentorship and blessings of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji (Head & Founder – DJJS) held 5 days Shri Krishna Katha in Hansi, Haryana from 24th to 28th May, 2017. Devotees in large numbers assembled at the venue to taste the divine nectar of Shri Krishna Katha. Many dignitaries also marked their presence.
The Katha orator Sadhvi Tripada Bharti Ji, disciple of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji beautifully narrated the entire katha. She stated that Krishna was a man of action. He was a history-maker and challenged wrong doings from all ends. He stood for justice and righteousness. His policy was to defend the oppressed from the oppressor. He was a divine soul and a world-teacher. He was a celestial musician. He was the Lord of Yogis. His immortal teachings to Arjuna and Uddhava on Yoga, Bhakti are unique. Even now they stir the hearts of the readers and stimulate them on the spiritual path and instill peace into their hearts. Lord Krishna was the highest incarnation of Vishnu. He was the unique and crowning incarnation. He was the Purna Avatara, the Perfect Incarnation. He was a noble scion of the illustrious Yadava dynasty. Lord Krishna played various roles during His stay in the world. He drove the chariot of Arjuna. He was an unparalleled statesman. The music of His flute thrilled the hearts of the Gopis and all those who had the good fortune to listen to the same. He was a cowherd in Nandgaon and Gokul. He exhibited miracles even when he was a child and a boy. He killed many Rakshasas. He showed Visvaroopa to His mother. He did Rasalila, the secrets of which can only be understood by devotees like Narada, Radha, the Gopis and Sri Gouranga. He is regarded as an Avatara with sixteen Kalas or powers.
The sacred scriptures like Bhagawata, Mahabharata, and Vishnu Purana proclaim with one voice that there was none to match Sri Krishna in beauty and elegance of form in all the three worlds. Lord Krishna was the greatest Karma Yogin of all times. He held the torch of wisdom. He was an embodiment of selfless action. He combined in his life all that is best, highest, purest and the most beautiful, sublime and grand in heaven and earth. He was the friend and benefactor of the poor and the helpless. He was a versatile genius. He was the spiritual leader and saviour of mankind. He was the greatest of spiritual heroes.
Further, stating the purpose and message of katha, the orator explained, “The soul is the particle of divinity, immortal, conscious, untainted by maya, and blissful in nature. Such a soul has allowed itself to be dominated by maya, caught in its trap like a parrot and a monkey. It's time to break the bars of mortal consciousness. It's time to unlock our true reality. It's time to get liberated. The divine science is the most profound knowledge embedded with the practical realization of the immortal soul. Its enlightening tendency can liberate one from all sorts of delusions. The Divine science or the Divine Knowledge is the key for the liberation of our bonded reality.
To acquire the knowledge of the Soul, the knowledge of the spirit, we need to reach out to a Spiritual Master. Through Brahm Gyan, he makes us realize that we are not this body, mind, or the intellect; instead, we are the Soul, the divine particle, sprouted from the bosom of the Lord Himself. That is the moment when we are integrated with the Self when we experience eternal bliss and what is true liberation.
The Krishna Katha unfolded the secrets and hard-to-understand mysteries of human life as stated in our scriptures. With the auspicious grace of Gurudev Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, the Katha proved to be an absolutely successful platform to deliver the message of Spiritual Awakening and Peace.
