Leadership 2.0 - unConference held by IT Wing in Gyan Sarovar - Report & Videos

26 Sep 2017

 

 

Dear Divine Family,

Greetings from Gyan Sarovar…

Theme : Sanskar - Sanskriti - Sansar

  • IT Wing of BrahmaKumaris has organized a conference for the emerging leaders in the IT industry within India. This conference took place at the Gyan Sarovar Retreat Centre, Mt. Abu, Rajsthan from 18th - 21st August 2017.
  • The conference was inaugurated by Dadi Nirmalaji - Chairperson of IT Wing, Bro. Karuna Bhaiji - Channel Head for Peace of Mind TV, Bro. Yashwant Bhaiji - Head Quarter Coordinator of IT Wing  & Bro. Hardik Parekh - CEO of 'Searce' who gave their inspirations & blessings for the event.
  • The primary focus of this conference was 'Sanskar Transformation' - making IT professionals realize & experience how individual sanskars play a role in creating a sanskriti (organizational culture) & how 'Sanskar Transformation' leads to 'Sansar (World) Transformation'.
  • Bro. Bala Kishore has shed light on the neuro-biology of sanskar transformation - providing a scientific perspective to transforming sanskars. The participants were also given the taste of 'Self Talk', which is very essential during the Sanskar Transformation process.
  • Sis. Shivani, providing a spiritual perspective to transforming sanskars has made the audience realize how an individual's world changes by changing his/her sanskars. The audience were also made aware of how the Soul power is getting depleted in today's world due to conflicting Sanskars & how to increase it by using the power of adjustment and acceptance.
  • Sis. Margaret from UK has engaged the audience with a very interactive activity 'Heart of Business'. The participants were allowed to have good reflection on their core values and how they can be applied to the activities that wouldn't interest them to make those enjoyable. They were also made to reflect on adapting this to their work-place to make it more satisfying. Finally, they were made to take away some positive affirmations that they can use at the workplace to get back the focus on the self.
  • Bro. Surya has illustrated the power of mind & positive thinking by providing practical examples. The audience were then given simple techniques that they can use in their daily lives to harness the power of subconscious mind that will change their lives for the better.
  • The participants experienced the fascinating concept of a 'living company' through an activity that involved self-reflection & group sharing in the midst of nature. They were given a chance to explore their own organizations as if they were living beings & how this change in perspective can bring longevity & values to the organization.
  • By providing the Raja Yoga introductory course to the participants, they were made to realize themselves as souls & regain the lost connection with the supreme being. They were also made to experience the power of AmritVela through guided meditation sessions.
  • Bro. David, using his different musical instruments, has taken the audience beyond sound & into a world of silence. They were made to experience the sound of silence during the 3 days of the conference.
  • Overall, the unConference has met it's objectives by inspiring many IT professionals to bring about a shift in their thinking process & most of them went back with a personal action plan for sanskar transformation that would help them stay on course even with all the turbulence around.

He stated, “With the power of wealth and physique no country can become great, but the power of character can make it so. Spiritual education is highly necessary for peace and happiness.

An average teacher explains and demonstrates. A great teacher inspires. But, the greatest teacher enlightens.”

Nirwair Bhai's greetings for the festival season

20 Aug 2017

 

Dear divine sisters and brothers engaged in most elevated Godly services at our BK Centres in Bharat and overseas,

Please accept love-filled Godly greetings from Madhuban-Shantivan.

Multimillion congratulations for the pious Raksha Bandhan festival that binds noble souls of the globe with the thread of God's love, for the greater cause of propagating pure consciousness and righteous actions.

Just after 8 days of Raksha Bandhan, we will be celebrating Shri Krishna Janamashtami, birth of the first Prince of Golden Age.Hundreds of little children in Bharat and other places will get decorated in golden-aged costumes of little princes and princess, gopes and gopis, with diamond-studded crowns and tilaks, symbolising the beginning of Satyug, the New Age of purity and gaeity. Though Shri Krishna and his friends walked on earth 5000 years ago, their portrayal of one and all divine qualities through music and dance is very much remembered and emulated till date. Their feasting on 56 kinds of sweet and savoury dishes are also well-known. 

The ceremonies of the past continue until today with everyone rejoicing the beauty of purity in consciousness of the toddlers, holding flutes and performing the grand raas on Janamashtami Day. 

The Brahma Kumaris too love to invoke the spirit of the golden-aged deities by creating beautiful tableaus with little children below the age of 8, and depicting the spiritual significance of the stories connected with Shri Krishna. In India, people from all religious backgrounds love to welcome these little gods and goddesses, and relive scenes of their world. 

Let's invoke those golden-aged sattvick sanskars in our day-to-day life, and live with the awareness of soon becoming golden-aged souls! 

Sahej Gyan and Sahej Rajyoga, as taught directly by the Supreme Father, are the solid basis for achieving that deity-hood in life.

Wishing all of you a very intoxicating Shri Krishna Janamashtami, on 14 August! We extend special loving greetings from Dadi Jankiji (in London), Dadi Gulzarji (in Mumbai), Dadi Ratan Mohiniji (in Shantivan), and all Madhuban Niwasis.

University and College Educators' Conference Inaugurated

28 May 2017

 

 

Divine Family

Mount Abu- Gyan Sarovar: "The world now faces a plethora of problems. The time has now come to understand that we cannot go on with the business as usual. Innovation in linear way is not sufficient and sustainable. We have to understand the importance of values and spirituality and bring them back to life if we are to build a sustainable and inclusive society." Prof. M. Jagadesh Kumar, Vice Chancellor, JNU, New Delhi said this while inaugurating the University and College Educators' Conference on Value Education & Spirituality, as Chief Guest,

Dadi Janki, Chief of the Brahma Kumaris, said, "The three Om Shanti refers to "Who am I?, Who is mine? and What have I to do here? God has taught me the art of life and has given me the thought of doing good to others. It is the values of Truth, Cleanliness and Simplicity that have worked wonders in my life."

Br Nirwair, Secretary General & Chairperson, Education Wing, said, "Other universities are making teachers, doctors, engineers but the Brahma Kumaris University is making the human beings deities through value education, spiritual education and Rajyoga, thereby justifying the saying "Man is made in the image of God". He appealed to the educators to discover, identify and inculcate the values them in their personal life first before teaching them to the students.

Br Mruthyunjaya, Vice Chairperson, Education Wing, said, "Today, the saying "Knowledge is power" means the power to make money instead of man-making. The Brahma kumaris is working to make India a Divine India, going a step ahead of Digital India. Today, we develop solar power but have forgotten soul power. The Gyan Murli of Brahma Kumaris opens the third eye of knowledge. The holistic Value & Spiritual Education will make India Vishwa Guru."

Prof. S.A. Kori, Executive Director-cum-Member Secretary, Karnataka State Higher Education Council, Bengaluru, praised highly the Brahma Kumaris for working for the spiritual uplift of the humanity through Value Education & Spirituality, which our education policies and universities have failed to do so. He said, "Education opens the mind but spirituality opens the heart." 

Sr Shukla, Director, ORC, Gurugram, said, "Today's education is almost directionless. Value & Spiritual Education can fill one with knowledge, qualities and powers; awaken the human spirit and help in leading a balanced life." 

Dr. Manpreet Singh Mann, Director, AICTE, New Delhi, said, "Today, the major deficiency is the mental deficiency. We think much but do not contemplate and churn at all. We have failed to give mental health to our children and students. Consequently, as a result, consumer market, India is placed in 3rd rank in the world but in innovation it has 63rd rank in the world."

Prof. Ved Prakash, former Chairman, UGC, New Delhi, threw light on the fundamental duties enshrined in the Constitution of India and appealed to the teachers' community to identify values in them and try to inculcate them personally and help the students to inculcate them in life.

Dr. Br Harish Shukla, National Co-ordinator, Education Wing (RERF), heartily welcomed the guests and speakers on the dais and the audience, and said that the world can change only with the power of spirituality. 

Dr. Br K Pandiamani, Director, Value Education Programme, detailed about the various Value Education & Spirituality courses offered in 11 languages through 13 universities.

Full English Translation of PM Modi's Speech on the BK's 80th Anniversary

28 May 2017

 

My cordial greetings to the members of Brahma Kumaris Institution and to all participants who came across from national and foreign lands to attend the nternational Cultural Conference, Omshanti. It is a matter of deep pride that Brahma Kumaris movement has successfully completed 80 years of existence and is surely a proud moment for the divine soul of Dada Lekh Raj Ji, Founder of Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University. He has given an institutional structure to the organization and has given an immense contribution in empowering women. It is a popular trend all around the globe to celebrate 25 years,50 years or 100 years in the form of jubilees. In India, a time cycle of 80 years holds a special importance. When a person or an organisation completes 80 years of its lifespan, it is considered as Sahastra Chandra Darshan Parva, which signifies that a person or institution has experienced full moon one thousand times.

Founded with the gigantic efforts of Dada Lekh Raj ji, today BrahmaKumaris Institution is at an extraordinary stage of Sahastra Chandra Darshan. On this occassion I wish the institution to continue to progress in its mission of spreading peace and universal brotherhood with a fresh breeze of enthusiasm. Yesteryear, Dada Janki has turned a hundred years of age. I pay my heartfelt gratitude to Dadiji for blessing us all like a true Karamyogi even till today. After two days we will be celebrating the festival of Cheti Chaitra. In India we celebrate Samvatsar , I pay my heartily greetings and best wishes on the occasion of Nav Samvatsar and Cheti Chand.

I have been fortunate to visit your organization and experience unconditional love many times. 80 years is a big time span for any organization. In present times it is often noticed that any group or institution begins to form groups, dissolves or breaks apart in around 15-20 years. It is truly a nurturing of Dada Lekh Rajʼs dedication and values that even after 80 years of its origin Brahma Kumaris is consistently working towards universal harmony and brotherhood through their spiritual knowledge. Millions of your followers are working in spiritual and humanitarian dimensions in every nook and corner of the world and I felicitate you all for this.

Itʼs my good fortune to be in your close proximity , understanding divine intellects and inherit divine virtues from you. Due to a busy schedule, I cannot mark my presence on this auspicious occasion. I am glad to meet you all through this medium of video conferencing. Brahma Kumaris impose peculiar work procedures and today we have witnessed one of them. You have felicitated me through the medium of light which I am watching on TV Screen. The institution is making constant efforts to disseminate the knowledge worldwide under the paramount leadership of Dada Lekh Raj and Dadi ji in the same manner as you tried to spread the light by switching a torch.

Brahma Kumaris everlasting efforts stands testimony to peculiarity of nation. India is a country with nerves of steel to say -God is One. God is worshipped differently in each religion and many parts of the world. They believe God has different forms, that’s not our contemplation. Since ancient times our scriptures and holy man have rendered the knowledge of ‘EKumsat Vipra Bahua Vadantiʼ meaning Truth is one, Sages call it in different ways.

It is a proud moment for me to know about inaugural ceremony of a Solar Power Project held today at Shantivan Complex. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to observe all the activities of your hospital located in Shantivan and the medical services offered to underprivileged. Its my pleasure to relive the fact that Brahma Kumaris took an initiative to adopt renewable sources like solar energy many years ago for carrying out various day to day activities in your complex. This is an organization which has adopted modes of solar energy at the time when the issue of global warming was not much talked about. This is an impeccable example of working with optimism and futuristic approach. The initiatives taken by your organization is bringing out a new revolutionary change for a better future . With the power of positive thoughts and self determination, man can achieve new heights and your initiative to produce 3 megawatts of solar energy will be a milestone in this direction.

Earlier we took a solar power initiative in neighboring state Gujarat, under which governments from all Indian states were encouraged to design different modules based on solar power. Now Shantivan has also joined the league for protection of environment. It is a great initiative through which meals for 38 thousand persons can be cooked everyday by using solar energy. Apart from that, your mission to promote solar energy by encouraging use of solar lantern, home lightening systems, cooking boxes etc will bring a new change in the society at large. The organization has made continuous attempts not only to augment spirituality but has also set an example for bringing about a change and transforming lives of the poor.

At present, Global warming is one of the major challenge faced by many countries of the world ,including India. It is our goal to achieve 40 percent of the required energy through non fossil fuel and conventional sources by year 2030. After 75 years of independence, the need of hour is to undertake initiatives based on renewable sources of energy. We aim at a grand target of producing 175 Giga watt of energy using conventional resources. If Government, society and organizations continue to move forward in the same direction, it will be a big step in conservation of nature, serving the mankind and almighty authority. I felicitate Brahma Kumaris for undertaking appreciable initiatives for conservation of nature. In Indian culture trees are considered sacred and holds a special importance. We are tirelessly working towards conservation of nature through various initiatives like Harit Kranti, Dughdh Kranti and Urja Kkranti and I would like to congratulate you all for supporting these initiatives. Indian government has set an initiative to place around twenty two crore LED bulbs in municipal corporation offices, state government offices and households in order to cut off an approximate expenditure of 11 thousand crores.

There are around 8500 Brahma Kumaris centers and millions of followers. All BK brothers and sisters can create an awareness about usage of LED bulb to bring a change in the lives of common man. Earlier an LED bulb costed around 400-500 rupees but today it costs around 50 to 70 rupees. Therefore ,this initiative can also be clubbed with various initiatives run by BKWSU. At present we are dependent on non conventional sources of energy like diesel and petrol. These sources are imported from foreign countries, on a very high expenditure. By adopting conventional sources of energy like wind energy, hides energy and solar energy. This expenditure can be cut off and used for empowering the poor. Your comprehensive contribution in this regard is highly appreciated. As per ancient Indian scriptures, exploiting nature is a crime. 

The Brahma Kumaris motto- One god one world family is also contemplation of our country. The ancient concept of Vasudev Kutumbkam or universal brotherhood traces its origins in India. Our nation is endeavored for justice, dignity and prosperity. Protecting the nature through medium of International Solar a lliance is another recognizable outcome of Indiaʼs initiatives towards conservation of nature. The nation got independence 75 years ago and it is duty of every citizen to work towards development of the nation and fulfilling dreams of all those who sacrificed their lives for the nation. 

In the past few days, we took a major step to demolish pillars of corruption and black money from Indian economy through the process of demonetization. Digital technique fohere to access Registration Form.

Mt Abu May Be Turned into a World Spiritual City

Artists performing on the occasion of 80th anniversary celebrations of Brahma Kumaris at Santivan campus in Abu Road .

 

UDAIPUR: The four-day celebrations of the 80th anniversary of Brahma Kumaris concluded at its headquarters at Shantivan campus in Abu Road on Wednesday.

Speaking at the valedictory session of the international conference-cum-cultural festival, Kiran Bedi, lieutenant governor of Puducherry, exhorted the youth to join civil services and bring positive change to the country.

"Instead of putting pressure, parents should teach values to their children so that they become good human beings. They will then automatically turn into good doctors, engineers or politicians," Bedi said. She also said the Puducherry government had decided to make yoga an integral part of school education in the Union Territory.

Bedi suggested Brahma Kumaris to help and coach the youth associated with the institution for civil services. She put forward three suggestions to aid social transformation and improve the lot of the elderly and the terminally ill.

Union minister of state for social justice and empowerment Ramdas Bandu Athawale assured Brahma Kumaris of government support to the suggestion to turn Mt Abu into a world spiritual city.

Speaking on the occasion, Assam Governor Banwarilal Purohit said the country was being divided on the lines of caste and religion, but such divisions were not a part of the culture.

'Brahma Kumaris is for people of all faiths’ - Ambassador of Nepal speaks at Brahma Kumaris 80th Anniversary Celebrations

16 April 2017

 

 

Abu Road, March 29: The Brahma Kumaris are empowering people to lead a life of peace, and it will soon turn into a socio-spiritual revolution, Deep Kumar Upadhyay, Ambassador of Nepal to India, said here today. He was speaking during the 80th anniversary celebrations of the institution at its Shantivan campus.

Bhimsen Das Pradhan, an MP from Nepal, said that Brahma Kumaris is not a religion but a secular fold that included people of all faiths, and it is giving light to the whole world. “Had it been a religion, it would have fragmented by now,” he said.  

Recalling his experiences of serving the nation abroad, former Indian diplomat Ashok Kumar Attri said, “In whichever country we work, we try to present India in good light. Brahma Kumaris are the biggest ambassadors of our country because they represent our culture.”

He was impressed by the smooth management at the Brahma Kumaris campus. “Nobody is being told anything here; everything seems to be going on effortlessly,” he said.     

Wajood Sajid, Editor-in-Chief, VNI, said that the Muslim greeting ‘assalam alekum’ was the translated version of Om Shanti and vice versa. He said the founder of Brahma Kumaris did a great job by handing over the administration to women because the universe is beautiful because of mothers and sisters.

Nawab Jafar Mir Abdullah, president, Imamia Educational Trust, said that the foundational pillars of Islam and the Brahma Kumaris were the same – both believed in the oneness of God.  

Rajiv Nishaana, Group Editor, Samachar Varta, urged the Brahma Kumaris to initiate more workshops for journalists so that they could experience peace of mind, as it was a rarity in the profession.

Senior Rajyogi Br Surya said if India combined its political and spiritual powers, it could become a lighthouse for the rest of the world. “We are citizens of a great country. Let us take it back to its original glory,” he said.

Sr Shukla, National Coordinator, BK Security Services Wing, said the three things essential to bring about a change in the self were knowledge, will power and the art of transformation. Faith in the self and in God formed the foundation of a good life, she said.  
    
Dr. Savita, Coordinator, BK Women’s Wing, said that spirituality gave us a mirror in which we could see ourselves and our shortcomings, and Rajyoga meditation was the means to change one’s thinking.

 

   

   

 

 

 

Pondicherry Governer, Ms Kiran Bedi Addresses the Valedictory Session at 80th Anniversary Celebrations

15 April 2017

 

 

Good people must join public service to change India: Kiran Bedi

Abu Road, March 29: The Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry, Her Excellency Kiran Bedi, today called for youth with values and character to join public service in order to bring about positive change in the country.

Speaking during the valedictory session of the Brahma Kumaris’ 80th anniversary celebrations, Bedi put forth three suggestions to promote social transformation and to improve the lot of the elderly and the terminally ill.

She said that instead of putting pressure on children to succeed in a particular profession, parents needed to teach them human values. Once children acquired such values, they were bound to become good engineers, doctors or politicians, she said.

“This is why the Prime Minister is promoting yoga”, she said, adding that the Puducherry government had decided to make yoga an integral part of school education in the union territory.

Bedi then said the country would change only when government officials, who influence and implement policies, changed. She suggested that the Brahma Kumaris help provide coaching to youth associated with the institution so that they could join public administration.

“When these youth join public services, they will bring their values with them…. Public service must not become a business; a public servant should have the spirit of service”, she said.

She also suggested that the Brahma Kumaris help provide palliative care to the elderly and the terminally ill, as there was a severe shortage of such care in the country. “No one can give better palliative care than our Brahma Kumari sisters…. It needs no money, only compassion”, she said.

 

Call to declare Mount Abu a global spiritual city

Union Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Ramdas Bandu Athawale has assured government support for a suggestion to make Mount Abu in Rajasthan a world spiritual city.

Speaking during the valedictory session of the Brahma Kumaris’ 80th anniversary celebrations, he applauded the organisation for its noble work in several fields, including women’s empowerment and environment, and said no progress was possible without peace.

 

Earlier, addressing dignitaries attending the four-day celebrations, Santosh Bhartiya, Editor-in-Chief of Chauthi Duniya, made the proposal to declare Mount Abu, an abode of holy men for centuries, a spiritual city.

BK Mruthyunjay, Executive Secretary of the Brahma Kumaris, said that there were many religious cities in the world, but there was no city of spirituality on the international map. He said the organisation would make all efforts to make India a spiritual “lighthouse and might-house” for the world.        
 
Earlier, Dr. A.K. Merchant, National Trustee and Secretary General, Lotus Temple and Bahai Community of India, said there was need to reflect on the five macro-level challenges faced by humanity, including climate change, financial upheavals, proliferation of nuclear weapons, human rights violations, and mismanagement of critical natural resources. All current problems, he said, must be resolved with a combination of science and spirituality.

Apprising the audience of the India One Solar Thermal Power Project in Abu Road, its Project Head, BK Golo Pilz, said an initiative that started 25 years ago was now a source of energy at the Brahma Kumaris’ Shantivan campus.

He said he had benefitted a great deal from his connection with the organisation, and firmly believed that the way to resolving global issues like climate change was to transform human consciousness because the physical world is the manifestation of the inner world.

 

   

 

 

Gujarat Governor OP Kohli Addresses International Conference During 80th Anniversary Celebrations

Social change must be based on spirituality, values: Gujarat governor

Abu Road, March 28: Positive social change can be brought about only by a movement based on values and spiritual principles, and the Brahma Kumaris are working for this, Gujarat Governor O P Kohli said here today.

Addressing thousands of dignitaries who have gathered at the Shantivan campus of the institution for its 80th anniversary celebrations, Kohli said many current social problems were the result of society turning away from spirituality towards a materialistic ethos.

“After we gained independence, there was no strong movement for social and cultural development, and as a result we see many flaws in society”, Kohli said, adding that selfishness and lack of harmony were among the problems.

Spirituality and universality were the two special features of Indian culture, he said, adding that there was need for a movement for social change, which would come from change in individuals, for which a belief in a supreme power was needed.

Asserting that moral values were based on spirituality, he called for a positive and value-based perspective to bring about change in youth.
The Brahma Kumaris, he noted, were working to change people from within and give their life the right direction. He lauded the institution’s work in the areas of women’s empowerment and ecological conservation, and its role in the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Earlier, V. K. Saraswat, former director general of DRDO, said that man was the link between the material and the natural world and elevating human consciousness was necessary to create harmony between the two.

H.H. Bhikku Sanghsena, Founder of Mahabodhi International Meditation Centre, Ladakh, said that Brahma Kumaris provided great inspiration for women’s empowerment. “Somehow it is believed that women can’t do as well as men, which is absolutely wrong.” He sought collaboration with such like-minded organisations for making the world a better place.   

Markandey Adhikari, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, SAB Group, said that in the present time of insecurity and instability, Brahma Kumaris was doing great service through its centres round the world. He urged media houses to highlight its work, noting that TV channels were inundated with negative images.

Kailash Adhikari, Director, Governance Now, said that in the fast-paced modern life, people were missing the experience of happiness, peace, and contentment, which reside in one’s heart.

Shailesh Kumar, Group Editor, PTC News, said that in a world where even religious places had been commercialised, and where extremism and war were pushing humanity to the edge, the Brahma Kumaris were a beacon of hope. He applauded the organisation for taking up the cause of peace.

Dr. Archika, MD, Disha TV, said that peace was a pre-requisite to progress; it begins from the self and spreads to the world. “Peace is gained when we organise and manage our life, especially when there are challenges, and fill ourselves with gratitude and forgiveness.”         

Justice V. Eswaraiah, former chairperson, National Commission for Backward Classes, said that behind the expanse of the services of the Brahma Kumaris was knowledge given by the Almighty Himself. It was a thing to be experienced personally, he said.     

Applauding the work of the Brahma Kumaris, Kavinder Gupta, Speaker of the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly, said that development needed to be holistic.   

 

 

 

 

 

Brahma Kumaris are Strengthening Roots of Indian Culture: Assam Governor Speaks at 80th Anniversary Celebrations

15 April 2017

 

 

 

Abu Road, March 28: The country is being divided on the lines of caste and religion, but these divisions are not a part of our culture, and they should be removed, Assam Governor Banwarilal Purohit said here today.

Speaking during the 80th anniversary celebrations of the Brahma Kumaris, Purohit said Indian civilisation had survived because it was based on dharma, and the Brahma Kumaris were keeping the roots of dharma healthy.

The work of the Brahma Kumaris was eulogised by Purohit, the Governor of Gujarat, and several other dignitaries attending a four-day International Conference-cum-Cultural Festival being held to mark the anniversary.

“There is no institution as pure and great as the Brahma Kumaris in this country”, the Assam Governor declared, adding that he had been “mesmerised” by his visit to the institution’s Shantivan campus.

Recalling the seven social sins mentioned by Mahatma Gandhi, among them worship without sacrifice, he said he saw total sacrifice in the Brahma Kumaris. “You are doing God’s work”, he said, and urged people to connect with the organisation.

Seeing the use of solar energy by the Brahma Kumaris, including a solar steam cooking system used to prepare meals for up to 40,000 people, had been an eye-opener for him, the governor said.

Earlier, Gujarat Governor O. P. Kohli stated that positive social change could be brought about only by a movement based on values and spiritual principles, and the Brahma Kumaris were working for this.

Addressing thousands of dignitaries who have gathered to mark the anniversary, Kohli said many current social problems were the result of society turning away from spirituality towards a materialistic ethos.

Applauding the work of the Brahma Kumaris, Kavinder Gupta, Speaker of the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly, said that development needed to be holistic.
North Orissa University today conferred a degree of Doctor of Literature (honoris causa) on Dadi Hirdaya Mohini, Additional Chief of Brahma Kumaris. Prof. Prafulla Kumar Mishra, Vice Chancellor of the university, presented the degree.

In addition, several journalists were felicitated for their services to society. They included senior journalist Bhavya Srivastava, K. Jaya Prasad, Chairman and MD, Metro TV and Mega TV, Sreeraj Menon, Director, Sakhi TV, Thiruvananthapuram, Santosh Bhartiya, Editor-in-Chief, Chauthi Duniya, Ajay Dave, Group Editor, S Live Channel, P P Wangchuk, Editor-at-Large, Hindustan Times.

Several dignitaries from Nepal are attending the four-day event. Speaking on their behalf, Justice Mohan Bahadur Karki, Chief Justice, High Court, Nepal, said: “When there is no peace, life is meaningless, even if one has all the wealth in the world.” He added that the wandering of the human mind was a big problem of our times and one could learn the art of training it through Rajyoga meditation.

V. K. Saraswat, former Director General of DRDO, said that man was the link between the material and the natural world and elevating human consciousness was necessary to create harmony between the two.

H.H. Bhikku Sanghsena, Founder of Mahabodhi International Meditation Centre, Ladakh, said that Brahma Kumaris provided great inspiration for women’s empowerment. “Somehow it is believed that women can’t do as well as men, which is absolutely wrong.” He sought collaboration with such like-minded organisations for making the world a better place.

BK Amirchand, Vice-Chairperson, Brahma Kumaris’ Social Service Wing, said what was drawing more and more people to the organisation and its teachings was its core value of purity.     

Congratulating Brahma Kumaris on putting on a grand show for the 80th anniversary, Kondal Rao, Chairman of Lamco Group of Industries, Hyderabad, said the organisation was now winning praise for its work everywhere.  
 
P.P. Wangchuk, Editor-at-Large at Hindustan Times, New Delhi, said: “The atmosphere here is filled with peace and love… All of us will be returning home happier and more satisfied.”

Rajyogini BK Godavri, Sub-zone Incharge, Mulund, Mumbai, said that people often asked her to share with them her secret to happiness. “Learning spiritual knowledge changed my life,” she said.

   

 

    Prime Minister Modi Inaugurates the 80th Anniversary Celebrations of the Brahma Kumaris

15 April 2017

 

 

PM Modi urges Brahma Kumaris to aid in Govt. programmes

Abu Road, March 26: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi today urged the Brahma Kumaris to use their large network of centres and volunteers to aid the Government's efforts in the areas of renewable energy, nutrition and health, and for ushering in a cashless economy.

Inaugurating the 80th anniversary celebrations of the Brahma Kumaris at their campus in Abu Road, Rajasthan, by video conference from Delhi, the PM lauded the institution for working with unity and dedication over eight decades to spread the light of India's spiritual knowledge all over the world.

Addressing more than 6,000 prominent persons from India and abroad who have gathered for the four-day celebrations, the PM noted that the Brahma Kumaris have more than 8,500 meditation centres all over the world. This large network and Brahma Kumaris volunteers, he said, can be used to bring about  major change in the country by the year 2022, when India will be celebrating 75 years of independence, he said.

"Is it not our responsibility to do something to fulfil the dreams of the founders of this nation", he asked.

"Under the leadership of the Brahma Kumaris, we can bring about an energy revolution and a revolution in human lives", he added.

Noting the extensive use of solar power by the Brahma Kumaris, including a 1 MW solar thermal power plant set up by the institution, and its use of solar steam cooking systems to prepare up to 30,000 meals three times a day, he said India had set the target of producing 175 gigawatts of energy from non-fossil fuel sources by 2030.

In addition, 22 crore LED bulbs had been supplied by municipalities and other local bodies all over the country, resulting in savings of Rs 11,000 crore. He urged the Brahma Kumaris to spread awareness about LED bulbs all over the country to help reduce the country's dependence on fuel imports.

Referring to the demonetisation move  of the government, he also asked the Brahma Kumaris to ask their volunteers to use the Bhim app and help small traders in their locality do the same in order to speed the transition to a cashless economy.

Turning to health, the PM said women volunteers from the Brahma Kumaris can aid the government's immunisation programme to ensure a healthy future for the millions of children who otherwise fall victim to serious illnesses.

This, he said, was a part of empowering women, and added that India had recently become one of the few countries in the world to grant 26 weeks of maternity leave, up from 12 weeks previously. He also suggested that the institution launch an online certificate course on nutrition, about which there is little awareness in the country. All universities in the country could be made a part of this effort, he said. Students in classes 9th to 12th would particularly benefit from better nutrition, which would help them when they later start families or their careers, he noted.

Earlier in the day, senior BJP leader L K Advani led a host of luminaries in paying tribute to the work of the Brahma Kumaris. Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman P J Kurien and Bollywood star Raveena Tandon were among the other dignitaries who lauded the Brahma Kumaris for serving society and setting an example of women’s empowerment.
Members of Parliament, state legislators, senior judges, industrialists and media personalities are attending the celebrations.

Speaking during the reception session inside the cavernous Diamond Hall, Asia’s largest pillar-free hall, Advani said Brahma Kumaris was the only institution of its kind in the world that had been founded and expanded by women.

“Just as the mother plays the key role in a family, women have played the main role in the growth of the Brahma Kumaris”, he said.
Recalling how he had seen the institution grow since its early days in Karachi, before the partition of the subcontinent, Advani said the Brahma Kumaris were a source of moral guidance for the world and everyone could learn honesty and discipline from them.

Speaking of his association with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Advani said the RSS had helped mould his character, and he had learned discipline from the Sangh.

“I learned from the RSS never to be dishonest in my dealings with anyone. This may be a small thing, but it has helped me serve society,” the BJP leader said.

Praising the idealism of the Brahma Kumaris, he noted that behind it were the ideal qualities of the institution’s members. Pointing to Dadi Janki, the 101-year-old head of the Brahma Kumaris, he said her long and active life was no ordinary achievement; it was a divine gift received only by those who lead exemplary lives.

Besides Dadi Janki, Dadi Hirdaya Mohini, the additional head, and Dadi Ratan Mohini, the joint head of the Brahma Kumaris, were present on the occasion, as were Mr Devjibhai Patel, MP from Jalore, and Mr Amara Ram, Rajasthan Revenue Minister.

Dadi Janki was earlier extolled by Mr P J Kurien as an example of women’s empowerment. He said the progress of the country should be measured by Gross Domestic Happiness (GDH), not Gross Domestic Product, and the Brahma Kumaris were contributing to India’s GDH.
Brahma Kumaris epitomize India’s great culture and their message is a beacon of light in today’s world of extremism and terrorism, he said.

Noting the leading role played by women in the Brahma Kumaris, Eminent Indian Film Actress Raveena Tandon said it was an institution full of maternal love and care. “We sometimes worry about what kind of world our children will live in, but there are still organizations such as the Brahma Kumaris that are spreading love in the world, and this gives us hope”, she said.

A highlight of the proceedings was the felicitation of several prominent media figures for their services to society. They included Mr Gulab Kothari, Editor-in-Chief, Rajasthan Patrika; Mr Deepak Chaurasia, Editor-in-Chief, India News; Mr Sudhir Chaudhary, Editor-in-Chief, Zee Media Group; and Mr Sanjay Kulshreshtha, Editor-in-Chief, News Nation.

Mr K Vaidhyanathan, Chief Editor, Dinamani; Mr Reghu Ramachandran, Channel Head, Asianet; and Mr R Bhagwan Singh, Executive Editor, Deccan Chronicle, were also felicitated.
