Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran holds the solution to life’s most pressing problem, that is, the quest for inner peace. For ages, this sacred text has been the beacon of light for true spiritual seekers. To remind the same, DJJS with the kind grace of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji organized a grand and stimulating Shrimad Bhagwat Katha Gyan Yagya at Narela (Delhi) from May 20, 2019, to May 26, 2019. Katha Vyas Sadhvi Padmahasta Bharti Ji, drawing wisdom from Lord Krishna’s exposition on the ideal form of action (karma), eloquently explained the key to living a fulfilling life to the audience.
Sadhvi Ji, re-framing Lord Krishna’s ideas, said that a person can’t sit without doing any action. Even if s/he doesn’t act through body or word, the mind never ceases to work until death. A human can create worlds in one’s imagination. Daydreaming is one action that mind indulges in without any hindrance. Hence, the notion of non-action (akarma) is a false one in Lord Krishna’s opinion. Rather, a human, says Lord Krishna, should strive to consistently be in a state of desire-less action (niskarma). However, performing niskarma doesn’t mean doing action without thinking. It means to act, under all circumstances, without the desire for a particular outcome. Since, it is the desire for a certain result that leads to bondage to the mortal world, and the painful cycle of birth and death. It is, then, imperative for a person to seek a method that leads to liberation from physical, mental and emotional suffering.
The method that Lord Krishna suggests is the ancient Indian science of divine knowledge, that is, Brahm Gyan. For centuries, it is the spiritually enlightened teachers (Guru) who have always been the only one to impart this knowledge to the seekers. A truly enlightened Guru is one who has witnessed the divine within and is constantly connected with the same; a Guru whose very being reflects the purity of divine wisdom. Such a Guru alone can bestow Brahm Gyan on to the seeker. Through Brahm Gyan, the Guru opens the third eye, also known as the inner eye, of the seeker. With this, serene divine light fills the life of the disciple and sets him/her onto the path of ultimate liberation. The disciple then is able to tap into an everlasting pool of inner seraphic wisdom that takes away the occasional loneliness a human feels at being disconnected from the divine. The seeker sees the temporariness of the world and works for the achievement of the true purpose of human life, i.e., being in accordance with the universal consciousness. Sadhvi Ji, thus, urged the audience to seek a true Guru and begin their spiritual journey to the ultimate truth. In this regard, stated Sadhvi Ji, DJJS will always remain a true starting point.
