Dadi Janki 1st Anniversary
27th March 2021
Dadi Janki Memorial (English Link): http://tiny.cc/DadiJankiMemorial
Dadi Janki Shakti Stambh (Hindi Link): http://tiny.cc/DadiJankiShaktiStambh
Dear Divine Family,
Loving greetings. It is one year since Dadi Janki reached her angelic stage. Since then, many of us have felt Dadi’s presence working in our lives. In marking Dadi Janki’s first anniversary, we wish to celebrate Dadi’s presence as a real experience, here and now.
On this day there will be the inauguration of Shakti Stambh (Tower of Power) and also the launch of the commemorative stamp for Dadi, issued by the Government of India. We wish to celebrate her life for the Brahmin Family and also for the many contacts and friends who came close to Dadi and benefited so much from what she shared with them.
We also invite you to participate in a Global Tribute: IN THE PRESENCE OF DADI JANKI To be broadcast on the 27th or 28th March according to your time zone. This event would be for all who came into contact with Dadi or knew of her. So it is aimed at non-BKs but of course BKs would also greatly benefit. The whole programme would be for about one hour.
For the BK Family
Live Streaming from Madhuban
On the 27th March the inauguration of Shakti Stambh will be streamed live from Madhuban. The time table is as follows:
8:30 am IST Inauguration of Shakti Stambh
10 - 12 noon IST Sharing of Personal Experiences of DadiJi
12 noon IST Offering of Bhog and Baba’s message
(Please work out the timing according to your time zone)
Details of how to tune in will follow from Madhuban.
Offering of bhog
Centres are invited to offer special bhog for Dadi on Saturday the 27th March, in the morning class. Usually we would have many people come on such an occasion to share bhog, but due to Covid restrictions everywhere, centres are asked to please share bhog with everyone according to the system in your country.
Your centre may also like to hold a special evening where BKs remember Dadi and share their special experiences of how Dadi has transformed their lives.
For Contacts and Dadi’s Friends
A Global & National Tribute: IN THE PRESENCE OF DADI JANKI to Dadi Janki will be aired on Saturday 27th or Sunday 28th March.
With all good wishes for unlimited service,
In Baba’s yaad,

Dear Divine Family, Warmest greetings of love.
Please find the details for the February Double Foreigner Program as follows.
Saturday 27 February, Nakki Lake and Baba’s Rock with Br David
Enjoy the legendary walk from Pandav Bhavan to Nakki
Saturday 27 February, Current Subtle Signals -- Sr Jasu (London) interviews Raju bhai ji (Madhuban)
to expand on the subtle signals that we are getting from Baba and drama and the spiritual stage we need to create to respond to those signals. Is the subtle region closing soon? Will Madhuban be open for us to visit again as we did before the pandemic? AND MUCH MORE!! There will be time for Q&A from the listeners.
Sunday 28 February, A Unique Story - Pandav Bhavan narrated by Sr Jayanti
A beautiful narration of Pandav Bhavan’s journey through the decades; from early days and humble beginnings to the ultimate place of peace on our spiritual pilgrimage. Sr Jayanti guides us to appreciate how each brick was laid in the growth of Pandav Bhavan - from the beggary part to expansion of service in India and the foreign lands. Pandav Bhavan has always been, and will continue to be, our sacred home and the heart of Baba’s yagya.
Sunday 28 February, What Is Next? Sr Sona interviews Sr Denise
At every level people are faced with uncertainty. We want guarantees. We want to know in advance how much time and money we can expect. Even Brahmins want to plan ahead for our holidays and special events... including our trips to Madhuban. We want to know what is next. But in these times of uncertainty, we BKs have to go with the flow like never before. We must be agile and use our power to adjust to the unexpected rapidly and without taking on undue stress. We must be flexible enough to adapt to increasing levels of stress, emotional pressure, social and professional instability. What role does our direct connection with Baba play in this scenario?
Sunday 28 February, A Yoga Bhatti with Mohini Didi (NY)
Mohini Didi will be guiding us into a Global United Bhatti to reach our powerful stage through a 15 min sharing and deep drishti.

General Instructions for 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.
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.
