Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (“DJJS”) under the valuable guidance of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji (Head & Founder – DJJS) is making continuous endeavours to spread the aroma of our rich Indian heritage and spirituality through various initiatives in the form of spiritual programmes, lectures, workshops, etc.
Recently, DJJS was invited by History Department of Chaudhary Charan Singh University (“CCSU”) (Formerly known as Meerut University) on 3rd August, 2017 to organize a workshop on “Spirituality in History”. CCSU is one of the premier educational institutions of the country encompassing a vast, beautiful and pollution-free campus which sprawls over 222 acres of land with life-size statue of the late Prime Minister Ch. Charan Singh.
Sadhvi Lokesha Bharti Ji (disciple of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji), Chief Guest and Speaker of the Event, was welcomed by Professor Aradhana, the Head of Department, Professor Geeta Srivastava, Dr. Ajay, Dr. Pradeep Chaudhary and Dr. Ashok Kumar with lovely bouquets.
Sadhvi Lokesha Bharti Ji shed light on the significance of Rich Indian Heritage through number of amazing historic examples. She said that “India is a land of 'Sujalam' (Full of sweet water) and 'Sufalam' (Full of sweet fruit and crops), a land that has been endowed with varied heritage. During Vedic times, people were more advanced and qualified than that of today since they were theosophist and blessed with spiritual knowledge. Gravitational force, distance between earth and sun, atomic energy, shape of earth and many such great discoveries were made by none other than Indian rishis and saints. Innumerable Scholars, thinkers, artists, artisans, sages, saints, scientists and historians have contributed to the growth and development of our culture. India is the country from where the ray of culture emerged and great thoughts are propagated. It is the only culture in the world which spreads realization of 'sat' (truth) 'chit' (concentration) and 'anand' (pleasure). It also glorifies one and all, since it visualizes the life with a rare vision and something auspicious. Sadhvi Ji quoted that Americans got amazed when Swami Vivekananda disseminated the great message of Indian heritage and culture in Chicago’s conference with the blessings of his spiritual mentor - Swami Ramakrishna Paramhansa.
Then with the help of a small skit by young and dynamic volunteers of DJJS, Sadhvi Ji explained that how Lord Ganesha is the management guru. All his body parts indicate principles of management which are now taught in world’s renowned institutions.
Further, Sadhvi Ji explained “Nirvikalp Samadhi”- which is an inseparable part of rich Indian Heritage. She proudly highlighted that Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji (Head & Founder – DJJS) is the true “Sanskriti Purush” who is currently in Samadhi and striving to bring back our lost heritage. Due to its rich heritage and culture, Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji addresses India as “Heart of the World”. Nowhere else in the world will you find such profound and deep spirituality that can win over the hearts of people and make them blossom from within. This unique quality of being able to transform life so totally belongs only to Indian spirituality. Our spirituality is not bookish and confined to scriptures alone, it is very practical and scientific, and can be integrated in our daily lives. It has the ability to transform one’s life totally because it is based on the concept of “Self-Realization” through the divine grace of a Perfect Spiritual Mentor.
The soul awakening skit on Vedic India vs. Modern India, was presented by DJJS’ volunteers, which gave goose bumps to the audience and echoed the seminar hall with claps and appreciation. The video of “Divya Shanti Mahotsav” of DJJS was also played to display a perfect live example of Indian heritage to the students present and the entire ambience got filled with eternal divinity and peace.
The event was concluded by Sadhvi Ambika Bharti Ji with a vote of thanks to the faculties and management and important information of the organization. Professor Archana, HOD of History Department highly appreciated the event and specifically praised the level of discipline of the DJJS’ volunteers. She also praised the organization’s exhibition on the theme of “Vishv Mein Shanti, Manav Mein Kranti” indicating all the social initiatives and DJJS’ contribution in bringing back the lost Indian heritage. She honoured both the preachers of DJJS with mementoes. Professor Gita Srivastava, the senior faculty of the department also appreciated the effort of DJJS in reformation of the society and its different approach in contribution in “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan” of our Hon’ble Prime Minister by introducing innovative schemes to get rid of the influence of western culture from our country and incorporating moral values amongst youth.
All the students present were highly overwhelmed by the workshop. Many of them also sought counseling from Sadhvi Ji in terms of spirituality. Thus, the event resolved successfully and succeeded in spreading awareness about our glorious cultural and spiritual heritage.
