Since time immemorial, Lord Krishna has been described as an epitome of unfathomable knowledge, astuteness, righteousness, divine love and devotion. His life is an excellent manifestation of living an ideal life and doing rightful karma to achieve salvation and inner happiness. Shri Krishna Katha describes the underlying meaning of Lord Krishna’s divine acts (Leelas) as described in scriptures including Bhagvad Gita.
Nowadays, when we all are surrounded by so much of negative, unpleasant or unwanted things, a spiritual discourse like Shri Krishna Katha, has the power to enlighten the mind and the soul. Whenever evil prevails in this universe, Lord manifests to destroy it and establish righteousness. These days, we humans have attached ourselves with everything material & perishable and have completely forgotten the purpose of getting this human garb! What we have become is nothing short of a machine devoid of all human values! We try to find happiness (read salvation) or mental peace in material things and God has become secondary for us. Valued terms like ‘Bhakt’ & ‘Bhakti’ are being used to mock each other. In such scenario, the event like Shri Krishna Katha could not only explain the real meaning of ‘Bhakti’ and analyse different types of Bhakti but also teach how to practice Bhakti.
The people of Jalandhar, Punjab experienced the divine grace of Lord Krishna as five days’ mega event of Shri Krishna Katha was organized by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan under the Divine guidance of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, from 28th May’19 to 1st Jun’19. Katha Orator Sadhvi Sumedha Bharti Ji, in her discourse included many stories from the life and pastimes of complete incarnation of Lord Krishna.
The intense and personal Bhakti described during the orations is directed toward Krishna as Vishnu in the human form. It included the most comprehensive collection of stories about the life of Krishna, showing him in all the stages and conditions of human life. Sadhvi Ji further described the Lord Krishna’s teachings and mentioned that he was the Perfect Master of Dwapar Yuga, who blessed his followers with the Divine Knowledge of Brahm Gyan that is actual perception of God within self. The Katha held out the possibility of salvation through devotion (Bhakti) regardless of caste, creed, religion or social status.
She further reiterated that True Bhakti is possible only when a human being surrenders himself/herself in the feet of a perfect master and attains the knowledge of Brahm Gyan. Only then, one can know the goal and target of his/her life. In the Present Era, His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji is the perfect master who is disseminating seeds of Brahm Gyan based meditation in almost every nook and corner of the world. The event was further enriched with chanting of holy hymns & devotional songs and insightful presentations. The melodious bhajans acted as a panacea to divert the minds of masses from materialistic world. DJJS profoundly invited everyone to attain Brahm Gyan and be the part of bandwagon of World Peace.
