Human lives of endless desires is losing out on basic human values, disconnected with inner self or our ancient heritage of spirituality, lurking into material existence searching for happiness. However, Lord Krishna says happiness derived from sense gratification is in the mode of passion, happiness derived from degraded activities is in the mode of ignorance but the happiness which is in relationship with Supreme Lords is transcendental. That happiness can be derived from self-realization which then becomes the mode of goodness and selflessness.
The Bhagwat Purana is one of the oldest Maha Puranic scripture of Hinduism, which focuses on Bhakti to the Ultimate Supreme Power through Divine Knowledge bestowed by Perfect Master. In order to reveal the profound secrets and sublimity inherent in each and every act of Lord Krishna, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS), headed and founded by His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, made a conscientious endeavor by organizing 7- day Shrimad Bhagwat Katha program, from February 24th to March 2nd 2019 at Rajpura, Punjab.
The devotes inaugurated the auspicious Katha program with recitation of Vedic mantras in Sanskrit, aiming to fill the environment with positivity for the masses and help wandering minds to fix into lotus feet of Lord. The devotional renditions amalgamated with various stories about the magnificent pastimes of Lord Krishna kept everyone’s mind engrossed in the bhakti (worship) of the Lord.
Sadhvi Vaishnavi Bharti Ji elevated the devotees to the new altitudes of Spirituality. She explained, Lord Krishna was Lila-Purushottama, the divine sportive form of God. He was the Yogeshwar, and at the same time the embodiment of pure love. The true bhakti begins only after getting connected to Supreme Soul from within, and surrendering to the service of Lord. Just like, Lord Krishna bestowed the Divine eye to Arjuna and initiated him into the Divine knowledge. Arjuna gave up all the attachments and surrendered to the service and commands of his Master. Similarly, each soul starves for the eternal peace till we get the same divine blessing from the Perfect Master of the time. She urged everyone to bracket their lives to the roots of Brahm Gyan, by taking the refuge of Perfect Master and embrace divine peace. Sadhvi Ji further explained those who are engaged in the eternal service of the Supreme Lord defeat the influence of the material nature by their execution of devotional service, and ultimately go to reside in the transcendental abode of the Lord as self-realized souls.
Katha also showcased the social project Kamdhenu, which works towards conservation and propagation of Indian species of cow, that are highly revered in our culture also reflected by Lord Krishna. Program served its purpose of enlightening each and every with the Supreme message of Brahm Gyan from Bhagwat Katha and the inevitable requisite to know the Perfect Master i.e. opening of third eye and direct realization of Supreme Soul. The attendees found themselves immensely fortunate on soaking in the divine inspirations.
