DJJS (Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan), under the supreme divine guidance of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji (Founder & Head, DJJS), organised a Stress Management Workshop at New Public High School, Sunderbani, Rajouri, Jammu & Kashmir on 17th September 2022. Students were motivated and guided through skits, Yoga, insightful activities, and a motivational lecture by DJJS’ representative.
The representative of DJJS, Dr. Sarveshwar Ji stated that stress has become an inevitable part of today’s life amidst cut-throat competition and soaring expectations. Students are also untouched by the same. Too much stress related to exams, competition and peer pressure is taking a toll on mental and physical health. Therefore, it is important that stress be dealt with timely for a healthy and happy life.
It was further said that we see lots of people talking about it and taking help of stress management workshops, counsellors, etc. But it is often witnessed that all these external aids have very short-term effect. With time, the effect fades out. Sometimes a student may go through multiple problems at the same time, which can cause immense stress, impacting his concentration/focus, health, emotions, etc. This results in underperformance in exams and, in few cases, it is seen that when they reach a situation where they cannot handle stress anymore, they take extreme steps like committing suicide.
Dr. Sarveshwar Ji further stated that it is possible not only to manage but eliminate stress from our life. For that, we need to understand the root cause of stress first, which is negative mindset. No outside knowledge or lectures can bring the everlasting change. It is only when we connect deep inside with our Divine Self through regular meditation based on Divine Knowledge (Brahm Gyan), we can eliminate stress from our life. Only a true Spiritual Mentor of the time can bestow this Divine Knowledge upon a human being. It is only through regular meditation and dutifully following the guidance of the Satguru (Spiritual Mentor), that we can have a peaceful mind and a happy life.
The students and teachers liked the logical and scientific representation of facts presented by DJJS’ representative and felt encouraged to seek this eternal bliss by attaining the Divine Knowledge. The school authorities were extremely thankful to DJJS for conducting this much-needed workshop where students and teachers received a deep insight related to the subject of stress.
