Divine Circle, the Divinity Society of GTBIT

“LET’S SING THE GLORIOUS PRAISES OF THE LORD!”

Keeping this feeling in heart, some ripples turned into tides by the formation of Divine Circle with a collective effort of handful students of GTBIT. But the blessings of the Lord are ubiquitous. So how could they be just limited to handful students. Soon the desire to be a part of this divine journey sprouted in so many hearts to aggrandize the strength of DC in so many ways.

Divine Circle, the Divinity Society of Guru Tegh Bahadur Institute of Technology, a first of its kind in the college, was formed on the 12th of June, 2006, carrying out its first event on June 15, 2006. Since then there has been no looking back and DC has been involved in celebrating all the major Gurpurabs by the collective efforts of students and staff community.

Members Divine CircleThe motives of DC are not just limited to merely celebrating Gurpurabs. The motives are far beyond. The community basically emphasizes on spreading the message of Gurbani through innovative ideas. In all the events of DC, the performance of the soul appealing Kirtan is accompanied with line by line translation of the hymns being sung that keeps the listeners completely involved in the event.

Apart from that DC wants GTBIT not just to produce good engineers but engineers who are good human beings as well and who may work not just to make some people happy but to make their Lord happy. Such efforts would always be blessed by the Lord Himself and there could be no failures and disappointments for such people in life.

To achieve these goals, DC has been constantly involved in spreading the message of Gurbani by starting up a series of ‘Thought of the Week’ from Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Sri Guru Granth Sahib is a source scripture that teaches man to approach God through His adoration. One who reads the divine scripture is undoubtedly stirred to the depth by the spirit which pervades the holy poetry. There is no human chord that is not struck, there is no depth which is not stirred. It imparts the sparks of life that kindles the extinguished one and makes whole, the broken one.

To further develop one’s skill and talents, DC has also started up with Music Learning Classes that are open to all after the academic hours in the college campus. A respectable response by the students has made even this idea of DC a success.

Now DC coming a long way, has instilled an inspiration in several students to come forward and so have now started participating in various inter college events like Gurmat Quiz Competition, Declamation and Gurbani Recitation Competition, Kirtan Competition, etc. organized by University of Delhi, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee, etc. And the joy lies in the fact that GTBIT students have been successful in these events and bagged several prizes and won accolades adding another feather to College’s cap.
