28th July – Memorial Day of Didi Manmohini, Former Administrative Head of Brahma Kumaris (1969-1983)

28 July 2020

Didi (elder sister) Manmohini joined the Brahma Kumaris in its beginning years in 1936-37. Her childhood name was Gopi, and she was born in 1915 to mother Rukmani in Sindh, Hyderabad (presently in Pakistan). They had a family connection with Dada Lekhraj (later, Prajapita Brahma Baba).


Didi Manmohini ji shared her experience in this way:

“I was born in a famous and respected Sindhi family. The family into which I was married was also a very respectable one. Even in my lokik (family) life, our relatives would frequently visit Dada Lekhraj’s family. They were sort of pulled to him. You will probably ask, why? Because Dada was very well-known for his devotion. Seeing his devotional feelings, generosity, magnanimity, and kind-heartedness, the local community had good respect for him. Besides, I would continue to meet and communicate with Baba because of our lokik relations. My lokik mother also desired that her children should forge relations with Baba’s family. However, it did not happen in that way and we were married to other homes.”


“In spite of being in a rich family, I was very unhappy in my worldly life. This is why I would spend more time attending various satsangs here and there. There were all types of comfort in my home, and we were constantly engaged in charity and making donations. I loved the Gita and the Bhagavat ( scriptures) very much. I did not know what would happen through reading them but I just loved the story of gopis in the Bhagavat. I was habitual of going through that story daily. I even visualized myself as a gopi internally. Even my lokik name was Gopi! As I was reading about Krishna’s divine games with his gopis I would shed tears of love. I was so fond of those gopis! I wondered as to how the gopis succeeded in meeting Krishna. So this is how my path of devotion continued.,” says Didi.


“I saw a spinning discus of light in the middle of Baba’s forehead”

Didi continues, “Once my lokik mother (whom they would call Queen Mother in the Yagya) went to see Baba. The next day after having gone to Baba, she sent back her car to take me there, too. In those days having a car was considered something great. I got into the car and went to Baba. Baba was sitting in a small room holding the Gita scripture in his hands and conducting a spiritual discourse (satsang). I had seen Baba a number of times before, however, on that day I was experiencing a special pull to him. I came up to Baba and sat down in front of him in such a way that Baba’s drishti would meet my drishti. I saw a spinning discus of light in the middle of Baba’s forehead. I would not even say that I went into trance. I was seeing this discus of light on Baba’s forehead with my physical eyes. Baba was narrating something but I was hardly aware of what all of that was about. At the end, Baba started chanting the sound of ‘Om’ and I got lost in the love of that chanting. The heart was willing to get merged in the sound of Baba’s voice. Even at that time I could see the discus of light on Baba’s forehead.”


After the satsang was complete, Baba asked me whether I had heard anything during the Satsang. I answered, ‘Baba, I have heard it but I want to learn more.’ Baba said, ‘Come to Om Mandali tomorrow.’ Next day Baba conducted his satsang at another place. I went there and sat down in front of Baba. In those days we did not have the pictures that we are having now. Baba took a sheet of paper and a pencil, drew a picture of the subtle regions and of paramdham (home of souls). I would listen to Baba and the firm faith came in my heart that I was that same gopi described in the Bhagavat.


Didi had to tolerate assaults because of her purity.

When Baba started his Satsang in Hyderabad it caused a sensation in the city. On one hand many were getting divine visions and on the other hand, they were told (during Murlis) to remain pure in family life (celibacy). Baba’s first direction was to remain pure (celibate). As soon as Didi heard that, she decided, ‘I will stay pure.’ As Didi took a vow of purity, her husband quarrelled with her. He even beat Didi once or twice. Once he even threw a glass at Didi and hurt her head. But Didi was intoxicated in her love for Baba’s gyan-murli (the flute of knowledge). As she was listening to the knowledge she would get intoxicated. She would immediately imbibe whatever Baba said and start practising it in her practical life. She had to tolerate lots of assaults after taking the vow of purity. Having become fed up with her husband’s cruelty, she had to leave his house and return to her parents. Didi was Mamma’s right hand in service tasks.


Administrative skills

After the partition in 1951, when preparations were to be made for this organization to move from Sindh to another place, Baba sent Didi for this task. And it was Didi ji who made all the inquiries and selected Mount Abu for this purpose.


She was the image of knowledge, the image of virtues, the image of yoga and the image of tenderness.


And that was not all about her! Didi had many other virtues. First of all, she was a very diligent student. From 1937 until 1983 she was never absent in Baba’s Gyan Murli class. Everyone would see her present in the class with her notebook and her pen. At the time of listening, she would note down certain points of knowledge, and then throughout the day she would share them with the seekers she met. So she remained a diligent student even at the age of 72. And she was also very good in her yoga practice. She would take her bath in the morning and not only would she be seated at 4.00 am according to the discipline but also she conducted meditation for everyone in silence by becoming the image of yoga.


Tireless server
From the beginning of the Yagya, she was very active in taking responsibilities. She did tireless service in this institution by fully surrendering her mind, body, and wealth to the task of awakening people. Even in her old age, she would travel widely across the country doing Godly service everywhere from Assam to Abu, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, from Kolkatta to Kach. She even went abroad for this elevated task. Even at the age of 72, she would show her care providing thousands of those coming to Madhuban with all the comforts as well as taking them into the depths of Gyan. Day and night she was busy showering everyone with her motherly love.


The life of renunciation
Didi lived a very simple life, from dressing to meals and behavior. In this way, she remained an image of simplicity and renunciation. Whatever possessions she had she gave them as presents to others and was connected in love with God.


Together with Dadi Prakashmani, Didi Manmohini Ji was carrying out such a huge task of administering a very big international organization. Having an enormous responsibility they could also have enjoyed quite a lot of rights. However, Didi never spoke to anyone with a feeling of having those rights or arrogance of her position. Even if someone disobeyed a particular Maryada (discipline), she would still give them her motherly love so that they did not leave this path of Godly knowledge. Even if someone was dissatisfied because of any reason, she would still sustain them with love so that they remained linked with Shiv Baba and did not leave the path of yoga by sulking with some bodily beings. ‘It is this person’s mistake, it is their fault, so why should I talk to them?’ – she never had such feelings. No, in order to make their mind cool Didi ji herself would say, ‘Brother, if there is something like that in your mind, disclose it. All of us are travellers on the same path. In our divine family, we have relationships of souls. And in my heart there are only pure feelings for you.’ It was sort of Didi’s song for the children, ‘I am a soul, and you are a soul. We are brothers. Baba says, Just study and never fight with anyone.’


Loving behaviour
Didi had such a specialty that by coming in contact and relationships with others she would make them feel belonging here through her love. She would give them her motherly love or would offer a solution to their problem. Didi would bind them with the thread of love enabling them to leave whatever was bad in them. Even if that person did not accept those teachings from others, he would easily accept it from Didi. So in her interaction with others, there was a magnetic attraction. No one ever feared to talk to her. On the contrary, they were pulled by her love. In this way, Didi ji enabled them to move forward on this spiritual path. After interacting with her no one remained distant from gyan (knowledge). The doctor (Dr. Bhagawati) who operated on Didi began considering Didi to be her mother. Didi ji’s interaction was filled with love but at the same time, her stage was constantly beyond. Whenever she gave someone some toli she would ask, ‘Have you eaten it in Shiv Baba’s remembrance or not?’


Didi ji was not just an image of tapasya but also very entertaining. She would listen to jokes and tell jokes but at the same time, she would make those jokes polite and spiritual. She was not dry and even at that age she was simple and joyful like a child.


Conqueror of sleep
All those who came in contact with Didi ji know that Didi ji slept very little. She would renounce her night sleep and practice yoga individually. Sometimes she would wake up at two o’clock in the morning and sit for quite a long time remembering Avyakt BapDada. At other times also she paid special attention to the pilgrimage of Godly remembrance. The fruit of that tapasya is that she won in the race of knowledge and yoga and got into the list of those who are number one.


Didi was Loving, royal, attentive, simple, Yogi, conqueror of sleep, cheerful, and responsible.

Recently Didi Nirmala has not been feeling well. She went to Global Hospital and it was found her blood pressure was low and so was her heart rate. Her Physician asked her to do an ECG and as a result has advised her that she will need a heart pacemaker which will ensure a normal heart rate.


Didi Nirmala left for Ahmedabad yesterday Thursday 23rd and is presently in hospital there and will have the operation to put in the pacemaker on Monday 27th July.


Didi would like to thank all those sending her messages of love and good wishes.

Progress Report on the Health & Hygiene and Water Project - Madhuban Campuses

22 July 2020

Om shanti and loving greetings from Madhuban.

COVID 19 has brought many surprises as well as gifts. Here in Shantivan, almost all work had stopped for 2 months and no labour are allowed into the campus. In all three campuses, it has given the residents to ’spring clean’ and many have appreciated it. The atmosphere of tapasya is intensifying everywhere. In the last few weeks we have also restarted the work on the finishing of the Water Treatment Plant project in Shantivan.  

Of course, such times have brought an even more intense focus on improving Health and Hygiene in all our campuses. To safeguard our immediate future, we are making water safety and kitchen/food hygiene a top priority. 

In this light - our focus over the next 6 - 8 months is the following:

Phase 1 - Finishing Shantivan WTP + Vegetable Area expansion  

Phase 2 - Pandav Bhavan WTP and Gyan Sarovar WTP installation 

Phase 3 - Dishwashers for Shantivan and Gyan Sarovar

* WTP = Water Treatment Plant

Please find attached a summary report of the works so far.

With everyone's finger of co-operation we will fulfill Baba's unlimited task.

If you have any queries or feedback, please do contact your RC for further details.

In Baba’s yaad,

Dr Nirmala 

On behalf of the HH Steering Committee

July 15 – Memorial Day of Dadi Hridaya Pushpa

15 July 2020

Dadi Hridayapushpa was one of the jewels of the Brahma Kumaris who was responsible for spreading the light of divine knowledge in the south of India. She was lovingly called ‘Tikkan’ by everyone.  She fulfilled immense responsibilities for the Brahma Kumaris Organization while living in Bangalore,  Karnataka. She left her mortal coil on 15th July 1996, to become part of the incorporeal world. She set up a Retreat Center and Spiritual Museum in Karnataka where she inspired many people to walk the spiritual path.

Born in Sindh, Hyderabad, her father’s name was Ratanchand Surtani and her mother’s name was Sita. Her father had a cloth shop in Colombo, Sri Lanka. She was one amongst nine children.  She was called ‘Tikkan,’ or unmoving, for her habit of sitting undisturbed in God contemplation since childhood.

Though averse to marriage, she was married at a normal age. She lost her husband within six months to illness and became a young widow. Drowned in sadness, she started following the deep spiritual urge within her. In these circumstances, she met Dada Lekhraj, the founder father of the Brahma Kumaris, and Om Radhe, his spiritual consort. This proved to be a turning point in her life. Dada Lekhraj gave her Divine knowledge.  Learning about Soul consciousness, Dadi Hridayapushpa forgot all her sadness and became light-hearted and joyful.  She became instrumental in bringing the benefits of Divine knowledge to both her parents, leading to an end of all their sorrows. After listening to Dada Lekhraj, her father turned vegetarian, teetotaler, and staunch follower of the Brahma Kumaris.

From here onwards, Dadi Hridayapushpa practiced spiritual discipline and service in the company of Dada Lekhraj (Brahma Baba). She had immense faith and dedication towards him. She radiated the power of Yogic joy and concentration.  She was an example of a Divine personality giving love and peace to all.

Global Retreat Centre Update

1 July 2020



We hope you are all well in these times. We wish we could invite you right now to enjoy the beauty and colour of the gardens at the height of summer, but we still have lock down rules and also renovations are continuing.


We wanted to inform you of the current situation with the proposed gravel extraction site on the doorstep of the Global Retreat Centre. However, before that, we want to thank you so much for your support for the Global Retreat Centre, earlier in the year. It definitely made an impact on the County Council to know that there is such a strong voice from those who have benefitted from all that the Retreat Centre offers.  However, regarding the update, unfortunately, there is still a possibility of gravel extraction at the site.


Back at the beginning of May, we were informed by a Council representative that the site was to be removed from the list, however, within 24 hours, that was followed by a rider saying, ‘subject to finding enough gravel elsewhere.’ Alternative sites are being considered but so is the possibility of applying for a smaller extraction site at Nuneham.


The Brahma Kumaris are working very closely with people within the locality to ensure that we continue to mount a strong challenge. We are taking legal and other advice as to our next steps.


It’s disappointing that the uncertainty has gone on for so long, however, we hope that, by the late summer or early autumn, we will have good news to share with you. However, until that time, we would still ask for your support in the form of your good wishes and powerful thoughts.


With love

Sister Manda and the GRC family

8 Postures of the Heart

The Greatest Love Story of All, Between the Soul and God


Greetings of love,


Brother Brij Mohan has had the inspiration to create a special video with representation of BKs around the world in honor of the International Day of Yoga. Because there was so much happening on June 21, we decided to create the video for the end of the "International Week of Yoga".


It is a 1-hour video created for public viewing, that tells the story of the soul's search for God in 8 "chapters" starting with seeking, then meeting, then purifying...and so on to surrendering.  In each chapter there is 1 BK storyteller and 1 BK musician.  Most are souls you know well -- Sister Jayanti, Brothers Charlie and Ken, Sister Aruna, Brother David, Sister Asmita from India and so on.  It's a beautiful and inspiring story and it is intended to serve long after the International Day of Yoga is over.  It's produced by Brother Eric (Montreal) and edited by Sister Anoli (New Jersey).
