“The fragrance of the flower is never borne against the breeze but the fragrance of the human virtues diffuses itself everywhere.” – is indeed the kernel of the saga of righteousness. Lord Ram, the epitome of Dharma or righteousness exemplified the idealism for the mankind encompassing all the aspects of human life. The time immemorial Ram Katha held at Haldwani, Uttarakhand lend insights on the connectivity with the Supreme Lord the dwells within and secrets of Ram Rajya (the perfect governance). The Katha took place from 24th Dec to 30th Dec under the guidance of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, the founder and Head of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan. The Katha started with the chanting of 'Rudri Paath' which filled the surrounding with beatific vibes.
The Katha Orator Sadhvi Sumedha Bharti Ji, disciple of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, eloquently depicted various events from the Lord Ram’s life that engineer us on how to live in accordance with the dharma and divine principle. The purpose of Lord Ram’s advent on earth was not just to demolish the demons but also to teach the world the principles of ideal kingdom. He established equanimity, peace, serenity and truthfulness during his reign in Ayodhya in the wake of rigorous trials posted by circumstances time and again.
Sadhvi Ji went on to explain that leelas of Shri Ram are the pearls of wisdom, devotion, and humility. True humility empowers us with the infinite grace of God. She eloquently depicted Hanuman as embodiment of devotion of disciple towards his Perfect Master. Hanuman’s unravelled love for his Lord can be seen when he sees Sita mata wearing sindoor once and asks curiously on the reason of doing so. To this this Sita Mata explains that wearing sindoor would make Lord Ram happy and bless him with happy & long life. On hearing this, Hanuman Ji enthusiastically smears his entire body with sindoor. This act also reveals the spiritual secret beneath that only when a person smears oneself into the colour of his perfect master can one attain the sublime bliss in life.
Sadhvi Ji further proclaimed that the teachings of Lord Ram must also be practiced. In adherence to the Santana Dharma, the technique of God realisation- Brahm Gyan is ultimate source of all dharmas in life. In present time His Holiness bestows the seekers with the same Brahm Gyan technique and connects with Sole Supreme Power.
