High Court allows deep-freezing of Ashutosh Maharaj's body, followers to celebrate ensuing Guru Purnima in big way
With Punjab and Haryana High Court's latest verdict allowing to preserve the body of the Divya Jyoti Jagriti Sansthan (DJJS) founder and godman Ashutosh Maharaj in a deep freezer, his followers have decided to celebrate Guru Purnima on July 9 in a big way.

The preparations have started at DJJS headquarters at Nurmahal in Punjab for the festival which was not being celebrated there for the last three years ever since court cases had been filed demanding cremation of the clinically dead godman.

It held by his followers that God can be realised in ‘metaphysical form’ when the ‘Divine Eye’ is opened by the ‘Spiritual Guru’ after initiation into ‘Brahm Gyan’.

Setting aside the earlier order of 2014 of the single-judge bench of the court for cremation of the body of Ashutosh Maharaj, the Punjab and Haryana High Court’s division bench has allowed preservation of the body, reported the media.

The court has ordered Dayanand Medical College, Ludhiana, to constitute a medical team for regular inspection of the deep frozen body of Ashutosh Maharaj and directed DJJS to create a corpus to meet out the professional charges of the constituted medical team.

Thus, the Punjab and Haryana High Court has granted permission to the followers of DJJS to preserve their spiritual head’s body in a freezer. However, the court seems to be mum over whether Ashutosh Maharaj, who was declared ‘clinically dead’ following a ‘heart attack’, is still alive or dead.

However, for the followers of DJJS, who continue to believe firmly that their Guru is in a state of Samadhi, the latest court verdict has come as a big relief.
