Additional News from Mexico since the Earthquake

25 September 2017

Dear Senior Sisters and Brothers, Dear Family, Greetings of love from Mexico. 

 

We appreciate all your loving messages in this difficult situation of drama. The accurate blessing for an earthquake: unshakeable and unmovable with the tilak of three dots.

 

The atmosphere here is of ambulance siren sounds and helicopters in the background. The situation is such that when we hear the siren it becomes a sound of good news, because it means someone has been rescued from the rubble. And then also death silence in between. 

 

It was a terrible earthquake. It started with trepidatory movement, i.e., having a vertical, up-and-down motion and then horizontal, side-to-side motion. Both movements were terrible, tugging from side to side violently, as if nature were angry.

 

All the BKs are OK. Nobody was hurt. Only sister Shivani's flat where she was living is about to collapse. She was allowed to enter shortly just to take her values out. Baba’s houses, in the whole area of the centre of the country, are well and did not suffer any serious damage. 

 

This situation in drama has opened more space for meditation and we have organized daily tapasya programs to spread rays of peace, hope, security and God’s love.

 

We are already organizing to bring food, aid and blankets to the most affected towns in the state of Morelos near Cuernavaca centre. This place was severely affected by being only few kilometres from the epicentre.

 

We infinitely thank the international family for all the messages, calls, and emails - they been a very special support for all of us as well as for this country.

 

Many places are closed, most of the shops, all schools, transportation has been reduced to allow the ambulance and other help to move fast. People are still trapped in collapsed buildings. 

 

There are rescue brigades. A high percentage of the population is helping: Some bring food, others distribute it, and others bring shovels and picks. Restaurants are offering free food. Motorcyclists who have more mobility carry things to remove debris.

 

The majority of those helping are young people. They do human chains, in order to dig up people from the rubble, stone by stone, rock by rock. The buildings continue to fall. A primary school fell and 32 children died, 4 more are to be rescued. Many are still buried. 48 hours have passed. The question is what is the length of survival time? 

 

We are receiving international help from Chile, Germany, Honduras, Israel, Japan, Panamá, USA, and UN rescue teams. 

 

Lokikly, so much help has been offered, so many people trying to help, so many medicines provided, so many professionals offering their respective services. We have prepared tolis to distribute them with blessings and special tapasya to help overcome the feelings of fear, frustration, sadness and depression. 

 

And of course, we have received so much help from the feeling of belonging to the BK worldly family; and from the understanding of all the secrets that Baba has revealed to us. Your blessings and pure feelings have helped so much.

 

 

News from Sr Akasah after the Mexico Earthquake

19 September 2017

Dear Beloved Family,

It was a great earthquake, however all Baba´s centres are fine, and the whole BK family in Mexico City, Cuernavaca, Puebla and Tlaxcala also.

In the city many areas had a lot of damage. Fortunately we have water and electricity; yesterday only for some hours we didn't have electricity.

Baba´s remembrance is a powerful canopy of protection.

Thanks for your message

Dear Family,

 

This tour was a highlight for me in 2016. A Divine gift and honor to connect, reflect, share and perform. 

 

The Brahma Kumaris Family in Brazil are awesome. I felt such a warm rapport with no barriers not even in language. People would understand me even before the translation came from the translator. My heart is filled with gratitude.

UN Biodiversity Conference, Holistic Festival & more - News from Costa Rica

23 December 2016

The UN Cancun Conference on Biodiversity was attended to by two BK biologists from Costa Rica. Claudia was one of the panelists of the forum organized by Brahma Kumaris, where the Earth Charter participated with the topic of ‘Awakening the Biodiversity Conscience’. 

 

Irene contacted the of the CR government representative at the conference, who requested a guided meditation that took place during the conference and creating a friendship relationship which we hope will strengthen in Costa Rica.

 

Previous to the Cop conference in Cancun, we were inspired to create a project called Bio Click in Costa Rica. The biologist BK and others wrote some material about the main threats of biodiversity, and a new vision to provide an alternate spiritual solution that would bring change in actions. 

 

There is a website www.bioclick.wixsite.com/bioclick , and a Facebook page called Bio Click. We found collaborators in the Ministry of Environment. We did 3 different workshops about the connection between consciousness and the five elements, one at the University of Costa Rica for a group of students of social work, another at the National Technical University at the Alajuela and Atenas campus to two groups of students at the celebration of the Day of Universities for Mother Earth. Another workshop was carried out at the BK Center for youth. 

 

An interview on the topic of biodiversity was done at the radio in order to promote the project in the program of the Costa Rican University. 

For the conference in Cancun, brochures were made.
