12 September 2019
Brahma Kumaris Costa Rica, 21 August 2019. The Pause for Peace campaign was inaugurated on August 21, 2019. A public program was made were VIPs talked about their support to the Campaign. Guillermo García, Director of the Guild School of the National Association of Educators, Lorna Chacón, Director of the National Radio and Television System, and Cathy Prado, Director of the Radios of the University of Costa Rica they talked about the videos and radio wedges of a minute of meditation, with which they will be supporting the “Peace for Pause” campaign. In addition, former first lady Margarita Penón commented on how she met Brahma Kumaris 30 years ago with the coming of sister Jayanti to the Peace Conference. She inspired everyone to pause for peace, as she has learned throughout these years of close relationship with Brahma Kumaris.
We had Dipti Bhen, who showed a video of how the initiative was carried out in Africa, which left everyone very motivated. Then Vedanti Didi shared on how to meditate and put into practice in family, work and student life, the pause for peace. The talk was very enjoyable, and people were left with the desire to put it into practice. After the talk, we received several messages of thanks and requests to start the workshops with 400 young people from the National Learning Institute, and more. The campaign will take place from September 1 to September 21, 2019. It will close with the celebration of International Day for Peace, with a massive meditation in a recognized cultural place in the province of Cartago.
The Brahmin family celebrated their 30th anniversary with classes, picnics, teachers meeting and delicious powerful food, prepared by Dipti Bhen and Vedanti Didi. In addition to motivating us to have a much closer and more natural relationship with Baba, they responded to many concerns, with humor and depth.
They also shared the materials made in Africa of the “Peace for Pause” initiative, with which workshops will be held to promote the practice of this brief meditation exercise. All materials will be shared in Spanish with the Latin American family and Spain. Here is the link of her clases: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1-SZw1XAwMBgMlzcXmNSxoryHbCZNWqBJ
