The 9-day event held at Dehradun from 09th Nov to 17th Nov, 2016 provided the healing touch to the wandering minds and served as a calm and quiet resort for the devotees to kindle spirituality in them and each and every molecule of their being was surcharged with divine aura. Some of the people who attended the first day of the Katha with a cursory curiosity made it a point to attend the series of lectures till the final day and their eagerness to grasp the latent meaning of the discourses was evident in their curious, attentive countenances. An awakened soul does not merely light up one’s own inner world, but also enlightens the souls all around. His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, Founder and Head of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, is the awakened Perfect Master and He is instrumental to lit up innumerable souls with his benign grace and to help them achieve their highest spiritual potential.
The Katha was graced by the presence of Harish Rawat Dharchula, Chief Minister - Uttarakhand. Thousands of attendees joined to tune into the Saga of Lord Krishna. Each sermon was like the pot filled with nectar. Such was the content and the method of elucidation by the learned Sadhvi Aastha Bharti Ji, the narrator of the Katha. With great control on the topic she was able to present the shortcomings of the present day materialistic world and how the activities and divine play of Lord Krishna was like the harmonious blending of secular and spiritual, which eventually held out to be for the good of humankind. The different initiatives of the Sansthan needs to be understood in this context, she emphasized, meaning they are all aimed at one supreme goal to attain World Peace.
Sadhvi Ji liberally quoted from our ancient scriptures, though she principally held on to Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapurana, and their practical meaning and relevance to charter a proper course in life for an individual. She commented on the pairs of opposites that linger on in the life of an individual and emphasized how an enlightened soul will be able to transcend all obstacles and ravel in the state of bliss. Such a soul will remain ever in contact with the Supreme Being, and the disparaging conditions around will not bother him a wee-bit. In every difficult and perplexing condition he remains calm and the worst situation will not do him any harm.
The audience was reminded time and again about the importance of remaining ever in contact with the Divine. The spiritual and the secular can move on together, once an individual owns the asset of the practical and direct experience of the divinity. That is possible only with the blessing of Brahm Gyan.
Lord Krishna asserted that God can only be experienced through the opening of the Divine Eye. In this Age, His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji precisely does the same for the benefit of humankind. The melodious bhajans presented on all days of the Katha, reiterated though musical notes the essence and importance of getting blessed with Brahm Gyan and the vital importance of availing this spiritual asset. This is the only way to prevent the society from spiritual disaster and moral doom, she stressed.
Hundreds of self-less volunteers made the event possible with their hard work and intelligent application. Sadhvi Ji recognized the role played by the transformed youngsters who are devoting their precious time for the great cause of His Holiness. Sadhvi Ji reiterated that these youth own the freedom to choose the way of life as per their sweet will but they have preferred the spiritual path, the righteous way, in order to bring about change in the deteriorating world order today. They stand firm to carry out their respective responsibilities and hold on to the positions with the strong determination and guidance of their Satguru, without any motivated desires and selfish interests.
