JANUARY DF Madhuban Program

(For clickable links, please scroll down to the text message below the flyer images)

 

 
Dear Divine Family, Warmest greetings of love.

Please find the details for the January 2021 Double Foreigner Program below.
 

January Theme: The Final Stage - Incorporeal, Egoless, Viceless

“At the end, Father Brahma gave all the children three words as a gift.  You remember these three words, do you not?   These three words are incorporeal, egoless and viceless.  Be incorporeal through your mind, be egoless through your words and viceless through your actions” (Avyakt Murli 24-03-09) 

As we come closer to our final stage of perfection, we lovingly invoke Brahma Baba and remember his efforts, his practices and his surrender.  The special month of January invites us to go into the depths of silence and tapasya; to become avyakt and experience the attainments of all relationships; and to draw from the wisdom and treasures of our ancestor souls, as we prepare to make our final pilgrimage…  TO RETURN HOME WITH THE ONE. 

Below are the events that will be offered.

 

16 January 8 am IST 
Topic: Stepping into Egolessness - Freedom from ‘I’
Our spiritual resource is Brijmohan bhai, interviewed by Bro. Charlie

“The Father remains so egoless. The one He enters is also egoless. Prajapita Brahma has so many children and yet his behaviour is so simple” (Sakar Murli 11-09-17)

Brijmohanbhai will share stories of how he observed Brahma Baba interacting with others in that egoless stage.  He will share how he has been inspired by Brahma Baba’s simplicity and royalty and the impact this has had on him over the years.

16 January 8 pm IST 
Topic: Being Incorporeal - The Wonder of the Point Form

Our spiritual resource is Mohini bhen, interviewed by Sis Judi Rich

"To the extent that you remain in the incorporeal stage, to that extent you will remain fearless because fear arises out of the awareness of the body” (Avyakt Murli 27-04-83)

Mohinibhen will share her personal efforts and practices of the incorporeal form, through her relationship with the Satguru, and how this has enabled her to remain fearless.

17 January 8 am IST 
Topic: Cultivating Being Viceless - The Sweetness of Divine Action

Our spiritual resource is Nirwairbhai, introduced by Sis Maureen Goodman

“When you tell others about the complete stage, what do you tell them? You explain to them that you can become 16 celestial degrees complete, completely viceless and completely virtuous through this knowledge. You speak about this stage of completion” (Avyakt Murli 05-10-71)

Nirwairbhai will draw on his experiences of having observed Brahma Baba in action and the wisdom he has gleaned from this.  He will share how through a close relationship with Baba, we are able to dance to that stage of complete perfection.

Connecting Via Zoom

 

If you are NOT familiar with using Zoom, please find below information on how to use it. Even if you are familiar with Zoom, please review the "Additional Guidelines" further down in this communication.

Zoom is very simple to use, you just have to:

  • Click or type the Zoom link (above) that is appropriate for your language and you will be taken into the Zoom room.
  • Or, if you are on a computer, you can go to your browser and enter Zoom.com – then, click on "Join a Meeting" at the top of the webpage. In the box that appears saying "Meeting ID or Personal Link Name", type the appropriate ID (given above) and then click the blue 'Join' button.  A little box will 'pop up' asking you to "Enter meeting password (or passcode)". Type the password (designated above) into the space where it says 'Meeting password (or passcode)' and click the 'Join Meeting' button.

If you are using a cell phone or tablet and do not have the Zoom app, you will need to download the Zoom app:
                          Iphone or IOS devices:  https://zoom.us/download#client_iphone
                         Android devices: https://zoom.us/download#mobile_app.
 
Once the app is installed on your device, click on its icon. When the app launches, click on the 'Join' button.   Type the appropriate ID (given above) in the 'Meeting ID' field and put your first name, city, and country initials in the 'Join with a personal link name' field (for example, Geeta, London, UK.) Then click the 'Join' button.  A box will 'pop up' asking you to "Please enter your meeting passcode (or password)". Type the password (designated above) for the password or passcode and click 'OK'.

Regardless of which device you are using, when you enter the Zoom meeting room, you will either
•    be asked if you want to use the ‘audio of your computer’
or you will
•    be given the option ‘over the Internet’.
Please choose whichever of these options appears to you.


ADDITIONAL GUIDELINES

We would like to request one small cooperation from you with regard to your camera. When you join a meeting, both your microphone and your video camera will be set to 'off', indicated by a red line through the microphone and video camera icons that are located at the bottom left of the Zoom window.

Where possible, we would like you to switch on your video camera, so that everyone can experience meeting the whole family. It's easy to do this: Just click on the video camera icon and your camera will be on.  (If you don’t see the video icon, move your mouse or touch your screen).

Please, be aware:
•    When your camera is on, you should be in front of it with sufficient light on your face so that you are visible.
•    If you need to get up for any reason, even for a few minutes, please switch off your camera (because it can be distracting for other  participants and speakers to see you moving around)
•    As it is a Madhuban program, please dress accordingly.
•    Be aware of your environment, particularly if you have other people around you.
Following these guidelines will deepen the quality of everyone’s experience.  To see the others in your world family who are in the Zoom room, from time to time simply switch to the Gallery View in the computer (upper right corner of your Zoom window) or, on your phone or tablet, simply swipe left through successive screens.

If you want to ask a question, please type ***  in the chat box and then type your question. The *** will make it easier for the facilitator to identify questions (as distinct from other comments).

And if you have any questions or comments on the experience of the programme, email us: dfseason@brahmakumaris.org

Much love,
In Baba’s yaad,
Double Foreigner Program Team

 Online Avyakt Meeting dates &
Special letter of remembrance from Madhuban

Supremely Beloved Avyakt BapDada’s instrument teachers, brothers and sisters, ones who always keep the seed of your thoughts full with good wishes of benevolence, ones who are engaged in world benefit, please accept sweet love-filled remembrance.

Seeing the present scenes of the drama, all of you must definitely be serving to make your own stage powerful and with the practice of service through the mind, are giving the donation of yoga to the whole world and to nature.  According to the pure thoughts of all Baba’s children in this land and abroad, we are sending you this letter of remembrance.  As all of you can see, the Coronavirus has put a stop to all types of service programmes.  In Madhuban, in all three complexes, all programmes have been stopped for the past many months.

Our sweet and lovely Dadi Gulzarji is still in Gamdevi centre, Mumbai, and it is from there that Dadiji is giving us the experience of the powerful vibrations of Avyakt BapDada’s sakaash.  All of us have taken avyakt sustenance from this chariot for 48 years and heard the sweet elevated versions, and even receiving powerful drishti through the video gives us the experience of being merged in God’s love and of filling our aprons with blessings.

This year, the programme for Avyakt BapDada’s incarnations in this land and abroad will be heard and seen online, enabling all brothers and sisters to become merged in the ocean of experiences.

If we receive permission from the Government for some brothers and sisters in India to come to Madhuban, we will inform you of the numbers of how many brothers and sisters can come and on what date they arrive in Madhuban and what date they have to leave.  Of course, being in our own places, we will celebrate an auspicious meeting with BapDada on-line.

With lots of remembrance,
In Godly service,
B.K. Ratanmohini
