“Arise, Awake and manifest the Divinity within”. This was the call that reverberated in Krishna Katha organized by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) - a social and spiritual organization founded and headed by His holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji. In order to awaken the souls, a five day Krishna Katha was held from 03rd to 07th January, 2018 in Amb, Himachal Pradesh. The orator of this pious Katha was Sadhvi Jayanti Bharti Ji, devoted disciple of Gurudev Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji.
The Katha began with prayers at the lotus feet of Lord Krishna. This marked a pious beginning of the five-day Katha. Katha Vyas Sadhvi Jayanti Bharti Ji shared beautiful anecdotes of Lord Krishna’s life, especially from his childhood. Reciting the shlokas from Bhagwat Gita, she created an aura of divinity and positive environment. Sadhvi Ji said that Lord Krishna is an epitome of pure love and devotion. She recited the Rasleela with Gopis, Stealing of makhan (Butter), Raising Govardhan on one finger and many more such instances of “Krishna Leela”. She not only shared these instances but also told the spiritual reason behind each action of Lord Krishna. He was considered the Jagatguru which means the one who is the guru of the whole world, universe. Each and every action of his passed on a significant message to the mankind. Sadhvi Ji told that the selfless love of Gopis towards Lord Krishna depicts the true devotion of a disciple towards their Guru. Even though Gopis used to be busy with their daily tasks, they used to remember their Kanha (Lord Krishna) in each heartbeat of theirs. Gopis have been a true example of devotion of a disciple. Even though our Guru is not present in front of us physically, he is still with us every moment and is never away from us. The only thing is to realize his presence within us. Sadhvi Ji explained that this can only be done through the process of eternal knowledge “Brahm Gyan” i.e, the realization of God within us.
The Katha succeeded in spreading the message of Brahm Gyan to the masses. The audience was mesmerized by the way Sadhvi Ji orated various shlokas. The event was highly appreciated and the number of devotee listeners increased by each passing day. The trained devotee musicians created an aura of divinity with their devotional bhajans. The combination of divine music and Katha attracted the people from nearby places as well. The Katha was a massive success and left people spellbound.
