Raksha Bandhan

Baba’s children are preparing physically and spiritually to celebrate and strengthen our sacred bond with Baba on Raksha Bandhan. All will join the celebrations with Mohini Didi and the US Family on August 3. For the few who can come out physically, we will be having a small but powerful celebration live (body and soul) at the residence.

 

Live classes at Commerical Site

Two to three weeks ago, in accordance with state and city guidelines, we were slowly resuming live classes at the center. However, with the second flare up of COVID, souls are very hesitant to come out to class, therefore Zoom increases but live classes and programs at the Center are at a standstill for now.


We are taking decisions whether to close the commercial site and continue functioning at the residence until the situation changes.

 

Evening Sustenance – Avyakti Parivar

Everyone is enjoying the evening sustenance programs with Mohini Didi. Thanks to Sister Mohini, the IT staff and all serviceable instruments for making this family sustenance possible.

The Secrets of Divine Balance

Brother Vivek did a wonderful ZOOM class on the subject, "The Secrets of Divine Balance.”
Since we are all striving to achieve balance in life, Vivek pointed out that keeping the mind uncluttered and focused helps us move towards this balance.


We need to hear and feel whatever comes up in the mind and heart so that we can move through what is there and return to peace.

 

The shift from the Consciousness of "Letting Go" to True Awareness.

Sister Yolanda explained how we can shift from the idea of " Letting go" to being in True Awareness. Once we experience True Awareness, the urge to Let Go will vanish as we understand what our True Nature really is. It not complicated to SHIFT....it becomes you, the eternal soul going through it's journey!

 

The New Unlimited You

This class focused on checking every hour of the day if you had any limited, thoughts, and reactions. Moving from this limitation to your unlimited true self.


Many souls felt how they were indeed having limited thoughts rather frequently and it was an eyeopening experience.

 

You make a difference in Collective Consciousness

We explored how we are all part of the collective consciousness and each thought, intention, and action will make an essential change collectively!


How important it becomes what you are personally broadcasting in this world. It gives us extra motivation to be pure in thoughts, words, and deeds!

 

Sister Yolanda read the murli for the Miami family. She observed how the Miami Family is such a great and creative team during the COVID 19 especially!

The Ability to Bend without Breaking

Saturday, August 8, 2020
5:00 – 6:30 pm PDT Workshop
6:30 – 7:30 pm PDT One-Hour Guided Meditation

Many people imagine the perfect life to be one where it is all smooth sailing, a tropical paradise, simple, peaceful, and fun. Unfortunately, that is not the way most of us experience life. Storms come, clouds block the sun, the wind whips us and things turn ugly – it’s just the way it goes. We can’t avoid it, but we can prepare for it. It’s all about having the resilience and flexibility we need to be able to bend without breaking, to weather the storms of life and bounce back. When we are flexible we are able to accommodate and adjust to anything and anyone and maintain well-being.
Presenter of this afternoon’s Insightful Dialogue will be BK Sister Madhavi Patale from Queens, New York, USA. Sister Madhavi has been a student of Raja Yoga for 25+ years and presently is the coordinator of activities for the Brahma Kumaris in Queens, New York.  She holds an MBA in Finance and Human Resource Management. Through her ongoing exploration of universal principles and deep values, Madhavi has developed a deep appreciation of the potential and capacity within the human spirit.

Washington DC (USA): With Covid cases increasing in some areas in America, the Brahma Kumaris Meditation Museum created an ingenious way to share Rakhi (sacred thread of love) by having a Drive-Through Raksha Bhandan.

Hundreds of BK students drove through wearing gloves and masks. They received Rakhi an,d blessing cards with angels on top, to remind them, that despite this hardship, we are capable of being the kindest people.

Food cooked in yoga vibrations were distributed and BK Dr Jenna, Coordinator of Brahma Kumaris in Washington, DC, tied rakki to, and shared love and good wishes with, everyone.

Panel Discussion on “COVID-19 Pandemic through the lens of self-care and self-growth for Youth” – July 25

24 July 2020

Milpitas ( USA ): The current world situation has had an impact on every aspect of our lives, both in a positive and negative way. It has affected the youngsters tremendously in multiple ways – unable to have a real graduation, missing out on prom, inability to experience the campus life, unable to find internship, resumes being rejected from big companies, social isolation, and insecurities of the future. How can youth cope up with all of these factors and maintain faith for a positive future?

Brahma Kumaris is hosting a panel discussion “Pandemic through the lens of self care and self growth for youth” this coming Saturday, Jul 25th. The panelists are two young adults who will share their issues/learning, a senior Child Psychiatrist (from Stanford and Director of Silicon Valley Psychiatry), and a Rheumatologist. The youth and the doctors will share valuable insights to give many options to young adults on coping with the current situation. There will be time for the audience to ask live questions to the panelists.

Online sessions on “How to Make Your Immune System Strong” by BK Hansa (USA) (Hindi)

8 July 2020

Texas ( USA ): BK Dr Hansa shared insights into “How to Make Your Immune System Strong” in Live Stream classes with Brahma Kumaris in Baroda, Gujarat.  It is a two-part class in Hindi with illustrations.

During Dr. Hansa’s 50+ year medical career, 98% of her patients acknowledged experiencing a traumatic life crisis or situation that created severe anger prior to contracting a serious, life-threatening illness.  The good news is that it is in our own hands to reverse the course of serious illness through meditation, diet, exercise, and most importantly learning how to forgive.

 BK Dr Hansa is the Area Coordinator for Brahma Kumaris in Texas, USA.

Free Self Development Online Series: “Become the Master of your Life!” starts July 8

8 July 2020

Cupertino, California ( USA ): This is an invite for a free online self development series, “Become the Master of your Life”. Most of us would agree that we create our own destiny, yet there are times when we feel handicapped that somebody else has the command over our destiny. A feeling of being a victim arises when we think that the reins of our life are in somebody else’s hand. That somebody else could be a person, circumstance, fortune, universe, planet, or God. The blame game starts, and life feels miserable and unfair.

In this series, we will deeply understand the reasons for losing control over life, factors that inhibit and facilitate control over life, and steps to regain control back. We will also use real life examples below to practice the learning of gaining control back over life.

Tough relationship where someone is constantly bossing us around or treating us poorly
Bad health controlling our ability to pursue hobbies and passions
Inner weakness (weak personality traits or habits) have taken over and are preventing me from doing well in life

My Personal Experience: Little did I know that I had lost the reins of my life to many things (bad habits, people, situations, etc) and was living an average or below-average life. It's not like my life was miserable, overall I was happy and had everything in life. Yet, many times I felt that life was unfair, or I did not have the free will to do everything I wanted. The gems of knowledge disclosed to me at Brahma Kumaris are steadily freeing me from my own cage. My confidence is growing because it is getting enough oxygen of freedom to choose and live life like I want. I was my best friend sometimes and my worst enemy many times.

The presenters were: BK Shireen, BK Karen, BK Tara, BK Virali, BK Jaymini, BK Liz and BK Anne O’Hare. It was well attended, particularly during the weeknights.

Learning to Meditate - 3 day course - Letter for centers and classes

22 June 2020

Dear Instruments for Baba's huge task, Om Shanti

It was Sister Mohini's inspiration to have a 3-day course on learning to meditate as a response to the need of souls at this time. This would be a special gift from the BKs to the general public, especially those  who do not necessarily want to commit to a 7-days foundation course filled with lots of knowledge.

The course has been tried at Baba's Manhattan center and a teachers manual has been developed. During the USA Teachers retreat Sr Kala and Sr Rona introduced it. 

We are planning to organize an orientation through Zoom and make the manual available for those who are interested. Please contact sister Rona at the Manhattan center (manhattan@us.brahmakumaris.org) if you or any of the instruments at your center are interested in getting familiar with the course and want to offer it to the public. All names should be approved and communicated by the CCs. Please communicate your interest by June 25th 2020.

Some info about the course:
 3-session Meditation Course, based on Raja Yoga knowledge 
➢ An experiential course to learn and practice meditation with 4 steps
➢ Explore and experiment with a spiritual perspective of self and of life 

The Meditation Course covers the following aspects of the Raja Yoga knowledge: 
1) soul and approaches to the practice of soul consciousness 
2) the Home of souls and the family of souls 
3) the Supreme Soul 
4) consciousness with which to approach drama 
5) the enemy: Maya and Ravan 

(The faculties of the soul will not be discussed in detail since that is explained in detail in the foundation course, which people can do as a follow-up of this Meditation Course.)  

Requirements:
1) This is not for BK's with no teaching experience. Preferably be an experienced teacher, or at least a new teacher with love for murli,  for yoga, and for experimenting in yoga. 
2) You should be prepared to do live guided meditation commentaries before and during the sessions. Not play pre-recorded commentaries, especially not of others.
3)  The aim is for the course to be experiential which means that the teacher/facilitator has to experience every word she/he speaks, whether explaining or whether guiding a meditation. This requires knowing, understanding and experiencing the depth of the themes yourself and playing/experimenting with this on an ongoing basis. 
4) Attitude of brotherhood and equality. These are your long lost and dearest brothers who have come back to Baba for their right and their inheritance. See everyone with that vision and attitude. 
5)  The teacher/facilitator should be able to make the course appealing to participants from all types of backgrounds. 
Be able to use, as much as possible, universal terminology, imagery, and concepts. Or at least you should be able to use concepts that are suitable for the culture and society you are addressing (this might require getting to know habits, perspectives and behaviors of people from other backgrounds). For example: what is considered respectful in one culture may not be seen like that in another and vice versa.
Another example: instead of stressing the name 'Shiva,' it might be more useful to have participants understand and experience God's nature and qualities, understand and experience a sense of belonging to the Supreme, understand and experience Him as light and the eternal Parent of the soul, to have participants understand what God does and does not do.

Those interested in the manual and a group orientation through Zoom, contact sister Rona and Manhattan@us.brahmakumaris.org before June 25th 2020.

In Baba's loving remembrance,
Rona

The Power of Eight - Intention Magnifies with Sister Jenna and Lynne McTaggart

5 June 2020

When individuals in a group focus their intention together on a single target, a powerful collective dynamic emerges that can heal longstanding conditions, mend fractured relationships, lower violence, and even rekindle life purpose. But the greatest untold truth of all is that group intention has a mirror effect, not only affecting the recipient but also reflecting back on the senders.

The Power of Eight provides that there is such a thing as a collective consciousness which you can learn to use and unleash the power you hold inside of you to heal your own life and to help others heal.

This program was streamed live on 3rd June. You can watch it here:

https://youtu.be/NrxqHOmzI70

Lynne McTaggart, one of the central authorities on the new science and consciousness, is the award-winning author of seven books, including her newest book, The Power of Eight. She is consistently listed as one of the world's 100 most spiritually influential people. As the architect of the Intention Experiments, a web-based 'global laboratory,' Lynne was prominently featured in the plotline of Dan Brown's blockbuster The Lost Symbol.

She is also editorial director of What Doctors Don't Tell You, one of the world's most respected US health magazines which has been awarded Best and Most Popular Website of the year for Health and Wellbeing and was also named Ethical Business of the Year. A highly sought-after public speaker, who has spoken in nearly every continent, Lynne has also appeared in many documentaries, including What the Bleep?! Down the Rabbit Hole, I Am, The Abundance Factor, and The Healing Field. She is a member of both the Transformational Leadership Council and the Evolutionary Leadership Council.

Brahma Kumaris Address World’s Largest Meditation and Prayer Event #MAYDAY

1 June 2020

Washington DC (USA):  Every year on May 21st, a worldwide event brings together people of all beliefs, faiths, and religions to create the largest synchronized meditation in history on #MAYDAY.

World Meditation Day, known as #Mayday, was viewed by 10 million featuring Sadhguru, Ravi Shankar, Tony Robbins, Swami Chidanand Saraswati, BK Sister Jenna, Dr. Michael Beckwith, boxer Mike Tyson, Deepak Chopra, Martin Luther King III, Marianne Williamson, etc., as they share the benefits of Meditation.

It was organized by SION, a team with a vision dedicated to bringing the world together to unite as one, to pause, reflect, reset, and create an ongoing dialogue focusing on healing, empathy, and mindfulness.

The event to meditate, unite and pray included a 10-minute introduction, one hour of speakers and artists, and 20 minutes of meditation .

BK Sister Jenna, Founder and Director of the Brahma Kumaris Meditation Museums in Washington DC, Host of the popular America Meditating Radio,  Spiritual Leader and Author, said, “The value and virtue of peace are so needed now, more than ever before. I am not talking about the peace just being in nature, I am not talking about peace being hunkered down in your homes with the people at home who you may like. I am talking about the kind of peace that comes from a personality and energy in your consciousness that has no limitations. It’s not focused on worry, anxiety, pain, expectation, jealousy, competition, judgment. What if we were to begin to imagine that our original religion of every soul on this planet is peace. And what if we created our thoughts, our words, and our choices based on the religion of peace. How does your life unfold? What will your relationships be like? How would you earn your money? How would you spend your money? How would you take care of your body? I ask you to think of this.

If our original innate soul-spiritual religion is peace, we wouldn’t be in the stage which we are in right now. So, at this particular period of time, the whole idea of rooting everything we think and say and do in peace gives us a very profound opportunity in creating a world that is harmonized. It’s a world in which nature cooperates, it’s a world in which relationships cooperate, it’s a world in which our finances will actually and finally cooperate with us.  Because the energy of peace is at the foundation. So, here is my simple plea: every hour on the hour pause your work, in which our Brahma Kumaris call it as traffic control, go inside and remind yourself that your original religion is peace and feel that. When you come out of that 30 seconds or a minute walk peacefully, communicate peacefully, answer your phone peacefully, go and get a glass of water peacefully. I guarantee you; you will feel the environment, the relationships and everything will shift.

Another technique: as you are walking and moving around, imagine yourself leaving behind the fragrance of peace so that anyone who walks into your atmosphere feels the gift of that benevolent charity of yours. The vibration of peace becomes your gift to humanity.

And last but not least, I invite you to practice the power of stillness in silence. Where there is a deep absence of waste and negative thoughts. After I understood the power of silence 15 years ago, I started to pay more attention to reducing my pattern of thinking thoughts that are useless. Whether there are thoughts about other people, expectations, even expectations about my own destiny. These thoughts are not important, so you see peace and silence are both connected. They are married. And the more at peace you are with yourself the happier you will be in making money, the happier you will be in serving in your relationships, the happier you will be in building your career. But when you get to that sweet spot of silence, you will be in such a place of your being that you will feel the call from the divine to gently respect you on who you are, why you are here.

What I would like to do at this moment with you is to invite you into a moment of silence and observe how all of your answers will come from that place. Let’s take a deep breath and focus on your original religion of peace. Go behind your eyes. Reconnect and remind yourself that the original religion of the soul is peace and become still in silence.

In this practice of silence nurturing your peace, we will heal the planet because all our lives will be healed. Stay safe, be kind, and remember your religion – it’s peace.”
