From “Self-Awakening” to Global Peace


Help each individual experience inner peace through Brahm Gyan – the technique for Self-Realization 

It is our experience that peace can be achieved only when the mind is awakened to the existence of a higher all-pervading Consciousness. The ensuing awareness and knowledge that all living beings are interconnected is the precursor of individual inner peace and subsequently, global peace. 

Brahm Gyan is the practical path for Self-Realization.  Practiced as prescribed, it connects one directly to the Source.


The Divine Light Awakening Center is dedicated to the achievement of peace – individual, societal, global.  Drawn from the ancient Vedic philosophies, we work to enrich the lives of individuals by providing spiritual and social nourishment through our spiritual programs, social initiatives and, developmental workshops.

We are non-denominational, socio-spiritual and non-profitable.  It was founded by Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, the Enlightened Master of our time.

Our Inspiration

The Master: Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji

Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji’s outlook is universal yet simple. His message is filled with strength, depth and vision. 

His ultimate goal is to attain World Peace. 

To bring about such noble change, Shri Ashutosh Maharaji teaches that an individual must undergo an inner evolution. This inner evolution begins with the attainment of Brahm Gyan. As an individual’s inner consciousness grows and inner peace prevails, others will be drawn to this peace and seek it for themselves.   

As more and more people begin to seek their own inner peace, the peace that began with a single individual, now expands to their family, community, society, nation and eventually the world.

Upon mastering this technique, Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji began spreading his message of peace in small villages throughout India, moving to Punjab, India in 1984.  His arrival in Punjab was at a very difficult time. The northern province was embroiled in a civil war that was fuelled by religious violence and terrorism. 

It was through his message of peace and impartation of Brahm Gyan – Self-Realization, that Maharaj Ji was able to re-establishe inter-faith harmony in Punjab. However, there are a number of other initiatives that have been undertaken by Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji.

He has not discriminated against anyone in delivering his message of peace. Through his organization, he has created a reformation program based in Tihar Prison, the largest prison in New Delhi, India. He believed that punishment could not change an individual’s thoughts, actions and tendencies.  Instead, he illuminated prisoners with the Brahm Gyan technique to awaken their inner “Self” and guide. This has helped quell negative thoughts and dark tendencies within the prisoners. Many of these prisoners  now share their personal experiences of change and peace and have become advocates for societal reform.

Maharaj Ji has also taken a keen interest in helping some of the most vulnerable in society. For the first time in India’s history, a person, Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, has given people with disabilities hope and a new life. He has given them a life of dignity. Through the technique of Brahm Gyan, Maharaj Ji has improved their self-esteem, enabled them to recognize their potential and helped them understand that they are not limited by their disability.  

Drug and alcohol abuse are rampant in India’s youth. Through the SAM program, Maharaj Ji has given new hope to many youths. Many SAM participants were once active users of drugs and abusers of alcohol. However, through the technique of Brahm Gyan, many have progressed in a more positive direction and are motivated to become an asset to society. Through education and youth oriented programs, teens and young adults are offered opportunities to positively impact the society they live in. 

Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji’s message of peace achieved through Brahm Gyan - Self-Realization, has spread through India, Europe and North America.  It is his goal to bring salvation to all and put “humanity” back into each individual. The technique of Brahm Gyan – Self-Realization is available for all. Through his dedicated disciples and followers, the message of peace continues to be spread and Brahm Gyan continues to be imparted.
