About the Organization

1983, Birth in Punjab, India:

It was the darkest period in the history of Punjab. The land of five rivers, the land of courageous and vibrant Punjab is, the prosperous and eventful state, was thrown into a blazing fire of violence, terrorism and gruesome homicide by fanatics, religious zealots, and terrorists, supported clandestinely by enemies of humanity from across the border (of India).
Fanaticism, terrorism, and extremism reigned supreme. The naked dance of bestiality could be witnessed all over the state. It was turned into a virtual hell; turmoil of the worst texture could be seen all around.
In such a state of peril, every bigwig ran for life. Even the religious organizations closed their centers and fled away to safer havens. The flames of inferno were so frightening that none really dared to take lead to prove equal to the task.
It was against this backdrop that His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji appeared on the scene in Punjab with the divine weapon of Divine Knowledge (Brahm Gyan).
The traumatized people of Punjab saw a ray of hope when they curiously witnessed the courage of a Man working single-handedly. His selfless mission caught the attention of many and they came forward to join His mission. With innumerable aspirants throwing themselves into the mission, His Holiness decided to give it a formal name – Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (Divine Light Awakening Mission). He formally made Nur Mahal (a village in Punjab, India) as His base to carry out the mission of peace in the troubled state of Punjab.
He knew that the parched land of Punjab needed wafts of coolness and whiffs of fragrance, not of mundane texture, but the one ordained by Divinity. Its misguided youth, who had taken to arms, needed divine medicine. So with His divine weapon of Spiritual Knowledge, he inspired all to the pious way of life. Oral doses of spiritual disquisitions were supplemented with practical nectar of Divine Knowledge. The youth of Punjab, having gone the way of the militants, soon began to realize the gains of the pious way of life driven by Divinity. Self-reformation, restoring normalcy in the state and replacing communal hatred with love and mutual trust became the cornerstone of their thinking pattern.
The increased number of youth forsaking militant ways was accompanied by threats to His Holiness. The youth on witnessing the calmness and equilibrium on the Master’s face amidst threats to His life became convinced more than ever that His is a divine mission and their mentor and guru is no ordinary saint but an incarnate celestial being in the guise of human embodiment.
The might of Divine Knowledge exposed the evil intention of the militants and still greater the divisionary designs of powers sitting across the border. With the youth laying down arms, drinking holy nectar of Divine Knowledge, embracing the pious way of life, carrying out constructive work, the long tradition of communal harmony was restored and peace made Punjab its home again. The peaceful ambience of Punjab today is apparent evidence of triumph of righteousness over evil, using the supreme science of spirituality as a science of experience.

D.J.J.S. went Global:

After restoring normalcy in the state of Punjab, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan and its mission went global. The Master declared “world peace” as the chief aim and objective of DJJS, which is the mission in spirit and an organization in formal sense. New Delhi, India, was formally declared to be its international headquarters, and the organization was formally registered as a socio-spiritual society/non-governmental organization in 1991 under the Societies Registration Act. Henceforth, the mission started disseminating Brahm Gyan (Divine Knowledge), in an organized manner.
Realizing the eternity of knowledge transmitted and imparted by the Master, people from all walks of life, castes, creeds, and religions came forward to get blessed and initiated by Him. Volunteers, realizing and appreciating the nobility of the mission, started pouring in and offered their body and soul to work for the mission selflessly. Thus the number of initiates and preachers started enlarging at a swift momentum. As a consequence, it became imperative to open ashrams/spiritual centres in different parts of the country and abroad to enhance access to Divine Knowledge.
Today, the mission is operating through its hundreds of branches all over the globe. The message of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (Divine Light Awakening Mission) has gained worldwide acceptance because we speak simple & straight and make all realize the True Self (Atman) – the source of eternal peace & bliss.
The devotees of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji are the marching spiritual soldiers to win the world with Love and Sacrifice, as we believe and know “the entire Globe is a Family”.

His Revelations

Believing without seeing is blind following

You must have heard people declaring at the top of their voices: ‘We are Christians’ or ‘We are Hindus’ or ‘We are Jews’, etc. Basically, this is all a matter of their belief. Have you ever tried to ponder over what they actually believe in? Generally, we are compelled to believe and, hence, follow whatever we have been granted by our parents and taught right from our birth. We consider ourselves to be Hindus if we are born in a Hindu family, Muslim if born in a Muslim family believing in Prophet Mohammed, Jews if born in a Jewish family, and Christian if born in a family believing in Jesus Christ. However, whatever family you belong to, you cannot be truly religious unless you achieve the direct experience of God, as exhorted by Swami Vivekananda:

Religion is the realization of God.

The aforementioned maxim elucidates the fact that to be a true Hindu or Jew or Mohammedan or Christian, one needs to achieve the practical experience of God. In other words, without the direct perception of God, you cannot be truly religious. Believing in God without seeing is merely a blind following. Moreover, such a belief can never be staunch and steadfast; for it can easily whither away, swayed by the vicissitudes of our life. One of the eye opening incidents in the life history of Lord Buddha vividly exhibits this fact before us.
Once someone approached Lord Buddha and said, ‘O Buddha! My son is looking for a job. If there is any existence of God, then he must get a job within three days.’ Fortunately and to his amazement, the very second day, his son got a job. Out of joy, he came running to Buddha glorifying God, ‘O Buddha! Your God is really great. See, He is so miraculous and powerful that He granted the job to my son. O Buddha, I am overjoyed today. This fulfillment of my wish has made me believe in your God. From now onwards, I can easily believe in your God.’ Seeing his excited state and sensing his pre-conditioned belief in the existence of God, Buddha gave him a token of advice, ‘Dear son, no doubt, God is there, but if you want to develop an unflinching faith in Him, then stop desiring and imposing conditions on Him.’ However, the ignorant man did not pay any heed to his holy advice. Few days passed and that man again visited Buddha and said, ‘O Buddha! My wife is severely sick. If God is there, then she should recover within three days; otherwise, I shall be an atheist again.’ However, to his utter dismay, his wife passed away the very next day, and he came rushing to Lord Buddha condemning and blaming God in full rage.
Dear readers, similar is the flinching faith exercised by the people today. How can conditional belief be staunch and steadfast? The majority of people today are accustomed to believing without any application of the scientific law of experimentation and research to validate what they believe in. Without any verification, they believe in their personal gods, scriptural injunctions, rituals, and ceremonies. There is no harm in believing, but remember that belief is only the first step. It would stagger and prove futile if it fails to culminate in the flowering faith.
There is a world of difference between the two terms- faith and belief. Faith can be defined as the ripened belief, the well-tested and well-verified belief. Suppose, someone comes to you and says, ‘There is a lion outside the building you are sitting in.’ If, relying blindly on his words, you start trembling out of fear, then such a trust of yours, unaccompanied by any investigation, will be called a mere belief that can even be a blind one. However, if after getting the news of the lion, you don’t simply rely on the words of the news giver, instead you start inquiring and investigating and trust in his words only after verification, then this belief of yours can be said to be true faith. Therefore, faith can be described as an unflinching belief developed only after the practical experience.
Similar is the case with religious faith. It too demands a scientific approach. Faith does not mean a cosy belief to rest by; rather, it is a torch to enlighten the Soul for spiritual realization. In the absence of this torch, the belief of the faithful is identical to the unbelief of the faithless; for then it becomes entirely dogmatic. However, no dogma or creed can appease the hunger of a truly religious heart. It is only the practical realization that can quench the spiritual thirst and satiate the spiritual hunger. True religion is a matter of inner practical experience and not that of belief or dogma. However, dear readers, as is explicated quite frequently, this inner practical experience or the direct perception of Almighty dawns only when a Perfect Preceptor (Spiritual Guru) bestows upon us True Knowledge or Divine Knowledge.

Can commitment to God wait

Consciously or unconsciously, all seem to maintain a list of priorities in life. Priorities differ from person to person. The human psyche tends to play a major role in the determination of priorities. From a pragmatic viewpoint, it is a person’s state of mind that ultimately decides his/her inclination or proclivity for an object. From a religious standpoint, it is the station of life one is in which goes on to decide a person’s priorities in life.
Regardless of these commonly held beliefs, it is an eternally proven fact that realization of God should top the list of priorities in life. The argument advanced in favour of attainment of God being the first priority is two-fold.
Firstly, everything mundane is ephemeral. Nothing ever accompanies one to the life hereafter. Secondly, with God being the source and origin of everyone, we should necessarily strive to attain Him and merge our individual consciousness into His cosmic consciousness. If ignored, the dreadful cycle of birth, death, and rebirth will go on ceaselessly with associated pain and suffering.
Despite the choice being so obvious, the majority tend to believe that until one has reached the point of saturation vis-à-vis the worldly happiness and experiences, one should not make a commitment to God. The proponents of this theory firmly hold the view that in order to fully appreciate the bliss of God, one must first experience the happiness and pleasures of this world to the maximum. With this mindset, they tell themselves and advocate to others that commitment to God can wait until one has enjoyed worldly pleasures to the fullest. To say the least, God is much lower in the list of priorities they have set for themselves.
These exponents, while advocating experiencing of worldly happiness to one’s heart’s content and then making a commitment to God, declare unabashedly that embracing a spiritual lifestyle can be conveniently postponed to the evening of life. This is as if the spiritual way of life is a loathsome job which can be deferred to post-retirement life when nothing really worthwhile needs to be done.
The underlying assumption of this mindset is the philosophy that the primary purpose of life is to work towards satisfying one’s wishes and engaging in activities that match a person’s age and stage in life. Inherent in this view of life is the thought that only after the individual feels that his check list of achievements has been crossed off, he can choose to begin living a life of contemplation, introspection, and meditation. Still another assumption of this mindset is that one can’t fully appreciate what God has to offer until one has absorbed what the world has to offer.
There is no denying the fact that one cannot really devote oneself to spiritual work and evolution until one attains fair amount of certainty in his mind that there is nothing in the world that can match the bliss of God. On the face of it, it appears that there is nothing wrong in nurturing a strong urge to experience the boons of the world in order to fully and finally arrive at a conclusion as to what is better for him.
Despite his intellectual understanding, which tells him that the spiritual way of life is a better option, his restlessness continues until he has experienced the material world to the maximum. In the life of such people, there are times when they were extremely happy, had nothing to complain or grieve about; life favoured them to the maximum and offered them choicest blessings. Let these people recall to themselves these times of extreme merriment. Did the thought of God come to them in those times? Whether the realisation of God, who gave us our life’s desires, crossed our mind? How many can reply in the affirmative to this question? On the contrary, we remained lost in revelry and even the thought of God did not occur to us. We hardly spared a thought to understand the divine purpose of this precious human birth. Moreover, when these moments of happiness start to drift away, we use all possible means to regain them.
To the question why the thought of God does not come in good times, the saints have answered in a way which should serve as a warning to all who give first priority to worldly boons. They say that the Lord does not share his space with the world. The Lord, therefore, will not come to mind when worldly matters have consumed it.
Sufi saint Rabia is said to have experienced God whispering in her ear saying, ‘Be careful, lest you want Me to fulfill your material desires and take away your desire for Me. Material desires and the desire for Me cannot exist within the same heart.’ Similarly, when Lord Krishna asked Kunti, mother of Pandavas, to ask for a boon, she said, ‘Lord, all I desire is grief. Because only in grief, do I remember you; in happiness, you drift away from my thoughts.’
It is thus patently wrong to presume that one takes to the path of God only after he is fully satisfied with his life and his accomplishments. On the contrary, the longing for worldly boons drowns one deeper and deeper into the materialistic world.
Can we deny that the love for material objects conditions and pre-programs our mind to think that we have ample amount of time in the world to worship God but very little time to achieve our worldly desires? But scriptures say that human life is transitory. One never knows the time of his departure from this earth. What is certain about human life is its uncertain nature. Life appears and then vanishes like a mass of fine droplets of water in the atmosphere. The following lines from the Bible are enough to stir anybody’s conscience: ‘What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a while and then vanishes’ (James 4:14). Saint Kabir often uttered this couplet: ‘This is the time, this is the season. Even after spending millions, one cannot regain this precious human life, once it is lost.’
The pursuit of affluence does not lie in hoarding up materialistic affluence but the affluence of self-realization. The Bible says, ‘What shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul.’ That is why, it is said that the wealth of the soul is the only true wealth. It is soul alone that raises us to nobility.
Worldly happiness may attain its zenith or its nadir, but only the happiness gained from God stabilises our restless heart and brings peace to our tormented soul. Pay heed to the scriptural advice- ‘Loving God is the only pleasure. Other delights turn bitter. What hurts the soul is to live without tasting the nectar of its own essence.’ Thus, rise above the idea of procrastinating worship of God and seriously consider reversing your priorities in life.

Purpose of Life

In our life, we should know who we really are and what we are capable of. Only then, we should make a decision about our purpose of life.
Once, there was a young man who grew up in a house where both his mother and father were farmers. His mother’s parents were also farmers as were his father’s parents, and in this way, it went for all their family history. The young man thought that since the occupation of his family was farming, so he should also adopt the same occupation. And with this as the goal, he lived his life- waking up early and going to the field in order to take care of the farm, learning and doing all sorts of farming tasks, and excelling in the same. For years together, this continued to be the pattern of his life, which he enjoyed as well.
One day, the king’s guards appeared at the farm. Upon witnessing their unexpected arrival at his farm, the young farmer asked them the reason for their coming. The guards said that they were looking for the son of the king. ‘King’s son… Here?’- asked the man surprisingly. The guards explained that a long time back, as a baby, the son of the king had been sent to this farm; the reason was to keep him protected from enemies who wanted to seize the king’s throne and, therefore, tried to kill the king’s son too.
So, the young man realised that he was actually the king’s son and was to be the future king. All the goals he had set for his life were decided upon the notion that he was the son of a farmer. However, in reality, he was the son of a king. Hence, all those years spent learning farming methods were useless because now he would be asked to rule over the country, and for this, he had no preparation. All his life, he considered himself to be a lowly man, of no importance. But actually, he was the heir to the throne.
Like that young man, we are also oblivious of our true identity. All holy scriptures, brought down to man from divine inspiration, have confessed that the human form is the form most adored by God. It is deemed as the one and only medium through which God can be felt, heard, and seen. As says Job (19:26)- And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God. Here the man, Job, is referring to the fact that in this flesh (the body, which although is constantly decaying and deteriorating), he sees God.
But have we ever pondered over the goal that we have set for our lives? Did we ever try to understand why our life is so important? Is it because we have the freedom to do whatever we want? Is our life important because we can climb mountains, build huge buildings, or because we are capable of destroying the earth? Many people dedicate their whole lives to a job or to learning about a certain subject. As humans, we are capable of learning many things. However, even if we were to learn everything present in the world, still, we would not have accomplished a great feat. We are very much like that young man who thought he was just a simple farmer but was, in reality, the son of a king and heir to the throne.
Today, we believe we are just common people, and we give ourselves regular goals of materialistic life. But, it is said in the Bible, “There is one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.” It also says, “God made man in His own image.” Truly, our real nature is that of divinity. God is within us, but, because we are not aware of this, we employ all our time in trivial issues of the world, which will not last. Like the farming skills of the man were useless to him as a prince, similarly the skills of this world are of no use to our true self, which is a part and parcel of God. That is why, it is said in the Bible: “The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.”
Therefore, if we use this life for any purpose, then it should be according to what we are capable of. And if we are capable of realising God within ourselves, then we must attend to this higher purpose. Moreover, the Bible clearly says, “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all else will be given to you.” Meaning that, by realizing God, we do not lose any other part of our life but, instead, our life is made complete with the prime aim successfully accomplished!

Ashutosh Maharaj Ji's Teachings

God Can be Seen

Yes, you have read it absolutely right that “God Can Be Seen..!”
The essence of all possible authentic scriptures, of all times, of all lands affirm,“God can be seen and realized.”

Q: Where can we see and experience God?
A: Within the human body.

Q: How can we see and experience Him?
A: We can’t see and experience God through our ordinary two external eyes.
We can see God through the Divine Eye (the Third Eye) by the scientific meditation process of Brahm Gyan .

Q: What is Divine Eye (the Third Eye)?
A: It an instrument, a means through which God or say, our Atman, can be seen and experienced, within our human body.

Q: Where is Divine Eye located within our human body?
A: It is located between our two eyebrows, particularly, at the center of the human brain. In the language of medicine, Pineal Gland is the exact location of the Divine Eye, at the center of the human brain.

Q: Who can open this Divine Eye?
A: Only a Spiritual Guru can open and activate the Divine Eye through His Spiritual Power.
The three subtle nerves Ida, Pingla and Sushumana fuse at the Divine Eye and the gateway to God becomes wide open to us.
Statutory warning. We cannot open it on our own. As an Eye Surgeon cannot operate on his or her eye and need to go to an expert Eye Surgeon, a Truth seeker cannot open his or her Divine Eye, all by himself or herself.

Q: How much time will it take to see God through the Divine Eye?
A: God can be seen “Instantly”, then and there, when the Divine Eye is opened by the Spiritual Guru, at the time of Initiation into Brahm Gyan.

Q: How can we know that our 3rd Eye is opened?
A: We see God in the form of the Divine Light – the elemental or metaphysical form of God, with our physical eyes closed.

By the divine grace of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, a true seeker of Truth can practically see God within, as mentioned above.

Brahm Gyan

Broadly speaking, we gather mere intellectual information about God through the following mediums:-
  • listening to lectures and spiritual discourses.
  • reading books.
  • engaging in philosophical talks and discussions.
These mediums of ‘information collection’ are insufficient to attain the goal of Self Realization. By remaining confined to scriptural knowledge, we deprive ourselves of the practical knowledge, experience and realization of God and consequently, fail to imbibe the Supreme Truth in our day-to-day life.

Therefore, all the Holy Scriptures and enlightened Saints and Seers have always encouraged man to get initiated into practical knowledge of God – ‘Brahm Gyan’.

What is Brahm Gyan?

‘Brahm Gyan’ (Divine Knowledge) is an eternal technique through which we can practically experience and realize God.
It is the process of seeing and realising the True Self (Atman) within our human frame through the Third Eye (Divine Eye).
The entire process of Initiation into Brahm Gyan (Divine Knowledge), necessarily entails extraordinary perception of:

Divine Light:

It is, verily, the metaphysical form of the True Self (Atman), which, in its resplendent light form, pervades our inner core.

Divine Music:

It is the eternal music, ever reverberating within.

Holy Name:

It is the Primordial Vibration that has manifested itself as the Universe and is the lifeline of all existence on Earth, flowing within our Prana – the Vital breaths.

Holy Nectar:

It is the Ultimate Elixir percolating within the human brain from a location called ‘Brahm Randra’ in Sanskrit.
Not only these, but one procures many more Celestial Visions and Experiences …

How to receive Brahm Gyan (Divine Knowledge) ?

To attain and become initiated into Divine Knowledge (Brahm Gyan) by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan:-
  • Firstly, every aspirant has to go through a simple process of listening to the Spiritual Discourses, conducted by the organisation at its various centres and other venues, to know about practical spirituality in true sense, as per our sacred texts.
  • Secondly, aspirants, without any distinction, are allowed to pour out their genuine spiritual queries to our authorised Preachers. There is no fee for such interactive sessions.
  • Once queries are clarified and the concerned Preacher is assured that the individual is well conversant with the basics of Spirituality and, above all, has a genuine thirst for the perception of God, the individual is allowed to go for Initiation into Brahm Gyan (Divine Knowledge)

Dhayn: Meditation

“Merely closing of physical eyes is not meditation. It is upon opening of the Divine Eye that the process of Meditation begins”... His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji

Meditation is neither practicing certain yogic or breathing exercises, nor is it imagination and contemplation by mere closing of eyes, nor does it mean to gaze at some external object, or deep analysis through our limited intellects.

According to the authentic scriptures,

Dhyaan (Meditation) = Dheya (Target) + Dhyata (Observer)

Dhyata (Observer):

We are the Observer, with our ever hovering mind. We need such a stand point, where mind sticks to procure eternal peace and happiness.

Dheya (Target):

God is that eternal, never changing Target where mind rests in peace.

Dhyaan (Meditation):

Thus, it is a process of union of the Observer with the Target.

When an aspirant is initiated into Brahm Gyan by the Perfect Master, his Third Eye (the subtle power center situated on the forehead between the eyebrows) opens and he sees the wonderful Divine Light inside. Thus begins the process of Meditation. First revelation, then meditation – that is the process. Hence,
  • Meditation is a one-to-one connection with the Supreme Consciousness, the source of positive energy, leading to the making of a vibrant ethical personality.
  • A vibrant ethical personality, in turn, serves as a concrete building-block for the making of a healthy society.
In accordance with the above technique and objectives, Sansthan holds various meditation sessions and camps from time to time.

Come… & take a dip into the placid lake of Divine Knowledge (Brahm Gyan). You will love to be ever-immersed in its blissful waters, while, simultaneously, keeping pace with duties and obligations towards the world.

Spiritual Guru

A Spiritual Guru is the one, who Himself is attuned to Almighty and has the apt capacity and capability to practically show and make one realize the True Self (Atman) within oneself.
Acting as our Spiritual Guide and a trusted counsellor, he guides us during our spiritual journey.

At every step of our life, we come across one or the other mentor. At each step, we encounter someone who directs us and, thus, can be honoured as our teacher. In childhood, our parents teach us how to walk, how to speak, how to eat, and mandatory etiquettes. Thus, the foundation of our life is vitally affected by the rules of conduct taught by our parents. As we grow up, we are sent to schools, where we study and, hence, get influenced by different teachers. After schooling, we move to colleges for higher education and are guided by the professors. Thus, throughout the journey of our life, we get influenced and motivated by one or the other instructor.

Thus it is advisable to seek the refuge and guidance of a Spiritual Teacher for experiencing the supreme science of God.

The Sanskrit word for a Spiritual Teacher is ‘Satguru’, where ‘sat’ means true and ‘guru’ is the word defined in Guru Gita as:
gu andhera jaaniye ru kahiye prakaash,
mete agyaantam gyaan se guru naam he taas.

The word ‘guru’ is comprised of the roots ‘gu’ and ‘ru’. ‘Gu’ implies darkness and ‘ru’ stands for light. So, the one who can take us from darkness to light, meaning the one who can show us divine light within, dispelling the darkness of ignorance is a True Guru or a Perfect Master.

His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji is one such Spiritual Guru, who is benignant & imparts ‘Brahm Gyan’ to the genuine Spiritual aspirants. By His grace, lakhs of inquisitives have directly experienced the supreme within, thus commencing the journey into the inner realms of their Self. His potent directions reconcile worldly and the spiritual life of an aspirant, who then enjoys each moment of his blessed life.

Spiritual Programs

Shri Ram Katha

The gospels of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji often depict Lord Krishna as a multi-dimensional personality. Salutations to Shri Krishna – who is Existence Absolute, Knowledge Absolute and Bliss Absolute; who manifested Himself in a human garb only for the benefit of mankind, to destroy wickedness and to establish righteousness.

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. Each and every divine sport of His life is infused with sublimity and profound secrets. Their underlying sports were relevent not only in that era but hold paramount significance in today’s age.

Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, under the divine guidance of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji makes conscientious endeavors to convey this rich resource of knowledge of the ancient legacy to the masses and inculcate in them the inevitable divine endowments via Srimad Bhagwad Kathas – the Spiritual Saga.

Shri Ram Katha

Lord Ram’s advent on earth aimed at the re-establishment of the Truth. He was truly the embodiment of Righteousness. His Life and journey was in perfect accordance with and adherence to “Sanatana Dharma” – the Eternal Truth. Despite rigorous trials posed by circumstances, time and again, He set forth an example of ideal living for the entire mankind.

Shri Ram personifies the characteristics of Purushottama – Right Action Man: RAM.

Lord Ram was an ideal son, an ideal brother, an ideal husband, an ideal friend, an ideal warrior, an ideal king and an ideal man. Thus, He is a paragon to be emulated. One should fully embrace Shri Ram’s virtues and must seek to sanctify every moment of one’s life by living up to them.

Hence, the very objective of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, under the divine guidance of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, behind sermonizing the narrations of the great epics like Ramcharitmanans and Ramayan, through Shri Ram Kathas, on a large scale from place to place and time to time to instill spirituality in the masses and guide them onto the path of righteousness.

Devi Bhagwat Katha

evi is the name of the eternal power (Shakti) which pervades the entire cosmos. She is the essence of this universe, the guiding light behind all organisms, and the divine energy that conquers all. It is in the arms of the divine mother that universe arises, flourishes and dissolves. It would not be an exaggeration to say that ‘All is Energy and Energy is All’.
On one hand she embraces her children and pours her divine grace on her creation, while on the other, her fierce and aggressive form ensures the devastation of the wrong doers. The divine mother is worshipped primarily in three forms: Goddess Durga, Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Saraswati. The worship of divine mother in these three forms is symbolic of human evolution, from lower self to higher divinity.
Durga- the Goddess of Shakti bestows energy and is the slayer of all the negative tendencies, which obstruct the evolution of the human being. Lakshmi- the Goddess of Wealth enriches the human self with the wealth of divine qualities- the real treasure of human life. Goddess Saraswati- the Goddess of knowledge is the giver of the divine knowledge, which unlocks the fountain of wisdom within an individual guiding him through the journey of life.
The mother herself represents the ideal state of energy which remains in communion with the all-powerful Brahm. Time and again, she incarnates on this earth to save her creation from the negative forces and inspire her children to traverse the grand journey of life. Her divine play, her divine existence has been a source of inspiration for civilizations since times immemorial. And it for this reason that the wise have worshipped her and sought her divine abode at each and every step of their life.
