Melbourne’s Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) community welcomed the Indian New Year with great excitement and joy as they celebrated Bhartiya Nav Varsh with a vibrant event in Melton.
The event, which took place on 2 April at the Melton Community Hall, was conducted under the guidance and blessings of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, bringing a sense of divine presence to the celebrations.
Guests of all ages were treated to colourful dance performances showcasing India’s rich cultural heritage, along with speeches by dedicated DJJS volunteers who shared the scientific, historical, and spiritual significance of Bhartiya Nav Varsh as described in the ancient scriptures and literature.
As part of the event, DJJS volunteers elaborated on the true essence of Bhartiya Nav Varsh and revealed the transformative power of Brahm Gyan—the technique for achieving spiritual enlightenment. According to the Vedas, only an enlightened individual can truly bring about positive change in the society they inhabit, and the volunteers explained how this ancient knowledge can help individuals become agents of positive change in their communities.
A tribute was also paid to the brave heroes of India’s struggle for independence, including S. Bhagat Singh, S. Rajguru, and S. Sukhdev, through a stirring rendition of ‘Mera Rang De Basanti Chola’. This patriotic tribute filled the audience with a profound sense of reverence and admiration for those who sacrificed their lives for India’s freedom.
The event saw an attendance of over 300 individuals and included dignitaries and community leaders of Indian diaspora. Among them included Matthew Hilakari (Member of the Victorian Legislative Assembly for Pointcook), Steve McGhie (Member of the Victorian Legislative Assembly for Melton), and Shiv Kumar representing the Consul General of India.
The Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan Inc, established and run under the mentorship of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji in India, is a socio-spiritual-cultural, not-for profit organisation. It runs a lot of social initiatives and developmental workshops around the world.
