With the benign grace of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, founder and head of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS), a grand Shrimad Bhagwat Katha Gyan Yagya dedicated to the Kamdhenu Project was organized by DJJS from 26th November, 2017 to 2nd December, 2017, at Pitampura, New Delhi. Sadhvi Aastha Bharti Ji as the Katha Vyas along with the team of trained musician disciples of DJJS rendered a magnificent narration of Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran. The Katha received coverage from various media outlets such as, Veer Arjun, Action India, Delhi Up-to-date, Dainik Jagran, Dainik Khabre, Jagat Kranti, AV News, Dastak News, Samachar Line, Meri Delhi, Jeevan Disha, Qaumi Patrika, Just2Minute, Nayak Bharti etc.
Sadhvi Aastha Bharti Ji, preacher disciple of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, pointed out that in today’s time the youth of the entire world is in the vicious grip of physical pleasures. One can look around and see that the human body is being represented in a crass manner. This is having an adverse effect on the minds of the youth for it makes them think that physical pleasures alone bring happiness. This distorted understanding of the world is argued for by citing the case of Lord Krishna’s play with the Gopikas/Gopis (Milk maids) of Vrindavan. It is argued that Lord Krishna’s equation with the Gopis was earthy, and if Lord Krishna being a God also had worldly interests, then there is nothing wrong with people’s desire for worldly pleasures.
However, Sadhvi Ji gently refuted this argument by stating that Lord Krishna was an enlightened being who attained the eternal knowledge from his Guru (spiritual teacher) Shri Sandeepani Muni. Lord Krishna’s play with the Gopis was not an ordinary one, played to delude them but rather a process of imparting divine knowledge. Lord Krishna made the Gopis witness the divine within by imparting them the divine knowledge. This is the reason Lord Krishna’s play is called Rasa Lila in Hindi; rasa meaning divine nectar, and lila meaning divine play. Hence, Gopis were the devotees, and Lord Krishna their spiritual teacher.
Sadhvi Ji said that this narrative proves that the human body is not the end in itself. On the contrary, human body is a means to attain divine knowledge, to witness the divine within, to connect with the divine forever. This is possible only when a true enlightened spiritual teacher imparts the divine knowledge (Brahm Gyan) to the human. It is this knowledge that alone can shatter the illusion of today’s youth and make them attain true happiness; happiness that is not dependent on worldly achievements. Sadhvi Ji concluded the Katha by urging the audience present there to attain Brahm Gyan from a true Guru and asserted that DJJS will always remain an authentic option in their journey to enlightenment.
