On the bank of Kshipra river, Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh, during the epic celebration of Kumbh Mahaparv, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan holds a mega event consisting of three kathas, Rudrashtadhyai, Vilakshan Yoga Shivir, Ayurvedic health camp, and much more. In the series of kathas, the primary occasion, Shrimad Bhagwat Katha, was held from April 24th to April 30th, 2016.
Katha orator, Sadhvi Aastha Bharti Ji is a world-renowned narrator and purveyor who does not only theorize the holy katha but also indicates towards the practical aspect of the tale. Sadhvi Ji, the daughter disciple of His Holiness Sarv Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, the head and founder of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, has experienced the same herself practically. She proclaimed that all narration in any holy scripture known to mankind has a practical aspect that can only be perceived with the guidance of a true master.
Amongst some key attendees was respectable Morari Bapu who kindly granted his presence as well as paid reverence to kathavyas Sadhvi Ji. In addition, Sant Sh. Mahesh Guru Ji from Prem Yamuna Sewa Trust, Ujjain, Sh. Rakesh Ji Dagor, BJP-Sambhagiya Sangathan Mantri Sambhag, Ujjain, Sh. Santosh Ji Verma, Atirikt Jiladish Jila Ujjain, Sh. Jagdish Ji Kulmi, Chief Manager – Narmada-Jabuva Gramin Bank, Ujjain all appeared as chief guests at the grand event.
All spiritual manuscripts, religious texts, and divine contents, point towards one eternal law: God can be seen.
Similar is the declaration in Bhagwat Gita where Lord Krishna showed HIS true form to Arjuna amidst the battlefield. Thus Arjuna, a seeker and a devotee of the Lord, realized the practical aspect of all principles imparted by Lord Krishna, thereby epitomizing the principal of ‘Seeing is believing’.
Sadhvi Aastha Bharti Ji enunciated that His Holiness is revealing the same experience today through which she, along with countless beneficiaries, have seen God. Brahm Gyan is the scientific technique of experiencing the light of Lord within; the sole proof is that any seeker of the Lord can experience it as well.
Amongst a current of sadhus, religious ascetics, and yogis, how can one identify a true Guru? Sadhvi Ji explained, citing the Bhagwat Gita, a true Guru such as the Jagad Guru, Lord Krishna, is the one who can enable one to fathom the true form of the God within. A perfect master does not limit the seeker to the boundaries of traditions and rituals but takes him to the abode of Lord Himself.
The Katha enriched the audience from all fronts of life with the true message behind the Holy Scripture instilling the quest to know God beyond the rites and customs set by society.
