Only days before news came in that Hinduism is now one of the major religions of Australia, Victoria’s Parliament House got a sneak peek of some of its most basic tenets in a special five-day exhibition
The exhibition was organised by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) Melbourne to create awareness about its activities.
DJJS is a socio-spiritual-cultural, not-for profit organisation, run under the mentorship of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji. Its chief aim is world peace, and it promotes ‘Brahm gyaan dhyaan’ which is the eternal science of self-realisation. This organisation has over 350 centres for human welfare located in India and across the globe.
For the launch, a disciple of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, Sadhvi Parma Bharti flew from India to address the gathering and enlighten them about Brahm dhyaan gyaan. Her talk, thought-provoking and logical, tackled the problems we face in contemporary times. The focal point of the discussion inferred that the need of the hour is to provide today’s youth with a direction and not let them get distracted by the noise created by negativity and wrong ideas. This can be achieved by a sane mind created by self-realisation and the sentiment to think beyond oneself. This in turn would reduce and eliminate all the negativity in the world and open up pathways for world peace.
The organisation runs the following social initiatives:
Antardrishti: Welfare program for visually impaired and physically disabled
Antarkranti: Prisoner’s reformation and post-release rehabilitation program
Kamdhenu: Conservation and propagation of Cows
Manthan: Holistic education program for the underprivileged and underperforming children
Santulan: Gender equality and women’s empowerment program
Bodh: Drug abuse eradication program
Sanrakshan: Natural resource management and environment protection program
Aarogya: Health Program including Yoga, Herbal remedies and Ayurveda
Samadhan: Disaster relief program
DJJS took the opportunity to recognise the community work of local leaders by giving them a token of appreciation. It was a small gathering of about 50 people.
