What is fear? How can life be devoid of fear? – Day 8 Ekal Bhagavat Katha (Delhi).

On Day 7 of the Ekal Bhagavat Katha with the theme of reunciation, Pujya Bhaishri focused on how we can become devoid of fear, be happy, the meaning of Lord Krishna stealing butter and the symbolism of the vyas pith with mother Yashoda and Lord Krishna.

Pujya Bhaishri said that this material world is death personified. The journey from false to truth, from darkness to light and from death to the nectar of immortality is the divine inner journey that Shrimad Bhagavat leads you upon.

By the grace of Shukdevji Maharaj, King Parikshit realizes for himself that he is not the body.

Pujya Bhaishri encouraged all to give up looking for reasons to be unhappy and instead inculcate the habit to look for reasons to be happy in life. Smile, because you are alive. Smile, because you are a healthy human being. Mother Yashoda has this outlook and is always seeking ever-new occasions to celebrate. After all life with Shri Krishna is a celebration!

When one cannot laugh at the same joke over and over again, how is it that one cries over the same sorrow over and over again? Learn to leave things in the past and live a life that is ever-fresh every moment.

Pujya Bhaishri spoke of the society as Shri Krishna in his vast form and the Vyās pith as Mother Yashoda. Just as Yashodā wishes to see Krishna gain fame through good qualities in the world, the speaker of the Vyās pith aims to remove faults and adorn each individual with the good qualities that shall ensure one’s fame and happiness. It is the Dharma of the Vyās pith to correct Shri Krishna in the form of society when it errs. Just as Krishna loves and respects his mother, the society must appreciate that a motherʼs pinch contains no hate or dislike but only love and concern.

Pujya Bhaishri emphasized that society can never repay the debt owed to people who work in all spheres of life (Politics, Social Service, Education, Dharma) in the spirit of Mother Yashoda, wanting nothing for themselves and only seeking to serve others.

In conclusion of this Ekal Bhagawat Gyān Yagya, Pujya Bhaishri praised the efforts to bring true education, not merely literacy, to our brothers and sisters in villages around India. Pujya Bhaishri blessed all for their untiring and smiling spirit of service.

Seeking a pledge by all to return to pre-plastic lifestyle practices, the importance of living in harmony with the environment as well as one another was reiterated.

Pujya Bhaishri said he was only a mirror in which you may see your true self if you wish to. For those who are able to do so and experience happiness, he has the satisfaction of having been a clean mirror. With prayers to Lord Krishna to remain so, he humbly concluded the Katha.
