Programs by Parthi Yathra Group of Haryana Day – 1

 

Projecting rich cultural and spiritual diversity, Balvikas children from Haryana & Chandigarh Presented two cultural programmes here in Prasanthi Nilayam today.

 

The first programme, a dance offering entitled Hara Bhara Haryana… was followed by a dance drama on the life of Nachiketa, a potent story of great wisdom from the Kathopanishad.

 

Set to perform a special Yajna to earn the supreme blessings, Saint Vajashravas, gives away all his not-so-important possessions, appeasing The Lord. Upset with his father’s hypocritical, unscrupulous attitude, young Nachiketa takes on him, questioning, asking to be diligent and honest in his dealing.  Angry at the young lad’s untimely interference, Vajashravas, in a fit of anger, gives word, giving away his own son to Yama Dharma Raja, the Lord Of Death.

 

Story next unfurls the young lad’s nonchalance, facing a daunting Yama. Immensely pleased at Nachiketa, for his finer attitude and greater wisdom, Lord Yama offers three boons of the child’s choice.

 

Nachiketa in turn, along with two other boons, seeks the ultimate boon of Atma Jnanam. In his attempt to dissuade the resolute young lad from this pricey attempt, Lord Yama finally yields, granting him the boon, and thus the beauty of Kathopanishad.

 

The drama ended with a reference to Bhagawan’s Presence in the Kali Yuga, Who Is The Ultimate Source Of Supreme Knowledge.

 

Bhajans continued and the session ended at 1820 hrs. With Mangala Arathi to Bhagawan.
