Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS), with the profound blessings of its founder and head His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, organized a seven day Shrimad Bhagwat Katha from 18th to 24th March 2018 for the devotees of Samastipur, Bihar. The Katha Vyas Sadhvi Kalindi Bharti Ji’s moving narration along with the devotional songs sung by the dedicated musician-disciples of DJJS garnered a huge audience. Sadhvi Ji said that the text of Shrimad Bhagwat Katha was first narrated by sage Vyas’s son Shuka to King Parikshit, the grandson of Arjuna. It is a text which purposes the view that devotion to Lord Vishnu must be based on inner realization.
Sadhvi Ji said that Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapurana is not just a devotional text but is a tool to understand the Supreme Being in simple yet clear words. The text through the narratives of various devotees of Lord Vishnu tells us that to put an end to worldly sufferings a human must realize the true nature of Lord Vishnu, i.e., Eternal Light. It was with this Light that the devotees of Lord Vishnu, such as Prahlada and Dhruva, were able to hold on to the inner wisdom in testing times. It was due to the adherence to righteousness that Prahlada was able to withstand the onslaught of his father demon Hiranyakashipu. It was because of the knowledge of the divine within, that Dhruva attained spiritual permanence.
However, said Sadhvi Ji, this form of Lord Vishnu can only be achieved through the grace of an enlightened Spiritual Master (Guru). Without the blessings of a genuine Guru, a spiritual seeker can never realize the eternal vibration entirely. It is suggested that a seeker first find a Guru who can show the divine light within and enlighten the seeker in completeness. The realization of the divine within with the aid of a Guru, asserted Sadhvi Ji, enables the seeker to make great strides in one’s journey to the universal whole. Sadhvi Ji, concluding the Katha, said that H H Ashutosh Maharaj Ji is one such true Guru of the present era and every seeker is welcome to attain Divine Knowledge (Brahm Gyan) from him.
