Greetings for Raksha Bhandhan from Sr Jayanti

9 August 2020

Dear friends,

 

At this time of uncertainty, we trust that you are able to draw on your inner strength and calm to bring light and hope to those around you.  It is also the time of the festival of Raksha Bhandhan, which invokes God's protection.  We are pleased to send you this message which reminds of the healing power of God's love.

 

The time is asking of us to care for one another and to stay under the God's canopy of protection.

 

With warmest regards,

 

BK Jayanti

Strengthen Your Intuition - a Webinar hosted by Innerspace Covent Garden July 31st

1 August 2020

Your intuition is trying to tell you something, can you hear it over the noise in your life? Or is it drowned out by the noise in your head?

 

Your intuition is trying to give you a nudge about something, can you feel it? Or have you been ignoring it and underestimating it for so long that you can no longer recognise it?

 

Your intuition is a superpower. It knows the way, it knows best, it knows what’s up.

 

Join us to explore how to strengthen your intuition and strengthen your ability to listen, trust, and follow your intuition.

 

Speaker: For over 30 years, Geoff Marlow has been a business consultant and a coach, specialising in helping organisations thrive in an increasingly complex and ambiguous world.

 

This is a free live online 60-minute event.

We all have powers and Virtues inside us.  Some are more visible than others. Now is the time to uncover these and experiment with them.

 

For instance, why do we say Patience is a virtue?   What would happen if we didn't use this in our practical lives?  Will you be happy or impatient and what would be the effect on others?

 

Meditation is the key to open this valuable treasure store and we warmly invite you to join us.

Invitation to Raksha Bandhan at Global Co-operation House, 2020

27 July 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

 

Loving greetings from London.  It is now the auspicious time of Raksha Bandhan and even in these current circumstances, as Baba’s children, we all wish to be together.  Baba’s signals for the time are to be alert and ever ready to serve at all levels.

 

We welcome you for the sacred festival of Raksha Bandhan.

 

There have been many arrangements to put in place, especially the procedure for pre-registration.  Please do read this letter carefully.

 

There are five options for GCH class.  It will be for any of the classes, Hindi, English or Tamil.  Because of the restriction on numbers due to the social distancing requirement, you will be able to attend one session only.

 

Saturday 1st August, Sunday 2nd August, Monday 3rd August, Tuesday 4th August at 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm

 

The Rakhi for those who are vulnerable and those who have previously been shielding is on

 

Monday 3rd August from 10 am – 12 noon.  This is for all classes of GCH and for the UK

 

There is an additional Rakhi for those in the London Bhawans and the Kumars group on Wednesday 5th August, 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm.

 

It will be a full two-hour bhatti programme which will also be webcast.

 

We will not be able to tie the Rakhi, but after taking drishti from Sister Jayanti, you will then be handed a ‘Rakhi bag’ containing the Rakhi and other items.

 

As government guidelines are quite restrictive on serving refreshments/food, we will not be able to offer tea/coffee etc.  On leaving you will be given a pre-packed Brahma Bhojan and a bottle of water to take away.

 

You are welcome to come to Baba’s room or Quiet room just before or after the bhatti.  Please observe social distancing; there is no floor seating.

 

It is essential to pre-register for the Rakhi session as we need to know how many are planning to come and whether you are registering as an individual or as the same household/bubble.  Then we will be able to seat everyone accordingly. Please register by the end of Wednesday 29th July.

 

Here are the pre-registration links – please select ONE of these dates:

 

 

Again we would like to emphasise that it is essential to pre-register.

 

On entering GCH, all will be asked to show confirmation of your pre-registration (email) and you will be directed to the Auditorium.  There will be a registration desk in the foyer of the Auditorium and your name ticked off and you will be directed to where to sit.  If we have several family/household bubbles we can significantly increase the seating capacity.

 

If you have not pre-registered, you will be directed to the seminar room to watch on the webcast.  We will bring you into the auditorium if seating becomes available.

 

The second reason for registering is for NHS Test and Trace.  We will keep this information for 21 days in case we are asked to provide details if there is a case of Covid.  If you do not wish us to pass on your details please indicate at the registration desk.

 

In order to comply with UK Government Guidelines for the reopening of a ‘Place of Worship’, and for your own safety, we request you to pay full attention to these guidelines below for observing strict hygiene and social distancing.  We will also make announcements on the day and we have signs posted in GCH.

 

Children who come must be accompanied by their parents and be with them at all times.  The library is closed.  The Bookshop will be open, please see the timings displayed.  Numbers are restricted to 4 at a time in the bookshop.

 

Arrival at GCH

Please sanitize or wash hands wherever you enter the building.  Hand sanitizer dispensers will be available at various locations including the following for the arriving BKs:  GCH reception, GCH Lift, Auditorium foyer.

 

Wearing of a face-covering is encouraged as it is not possible to always maintain social distancing especially when moving around the building and interacting with others.  Masks will be available at reception.  Use of a fresh mask is required if someone has travelled on public transport.

 

GCH car park is open from 6 am and there is plenty of free street parking in the area on Saturdays and Sundays and after 6.30 pm on weekdays.  If several people have come in the same car (from the same household/bubble) then you may go into the lift together, otherwise only one person in the lift at a time.  If wearing face coverings, two persons may use the lift together.  Please give priority for use of the lift to the elderly and infirm.

 

When coming in from the GCH car park, if you wish to hang up your coat, please go to GCH reception first and sanitise or wash your hands there (alternatively you may leave their coat etc in the car or keep it with you.)  Hands may be sanitized again when entering the Auditorium.

 

There are clear signs in GCH lift and as people exit the lift as to what they have to do, ie to wash or sanitise hands and that someone is waiting to register you at the Auditorium Foyer.

 

Cloakroom

The cloakroom will be kept closed as it is an enclosed space.  Two coat racks are available in the reception area. Please bring a minimum of belongings when you come, as you will need to keep your belongings with you.

 

Social Distancing

We request you to keep 2 metres social distancing in the Auditorium and as much as possible in all other places.  Please pay particular attention in the narrow corridors and keep to one way traffic.  To keep everyone safe, we request you to follow the social distancing measures and as much as possible avoid stopping/mingling on the stairs or in confined spaces.

 

If you are vulnerable

If you are over 70 years with or without underlying medical conditions, you are vulnerable to COVID 19.  According to Government guidelines, you must be especially careful and diligent about social distancing and hand hygiene.  As it can be difficult to maintain effective social distancing in a large gathering and especially whilst moving around the building and interacting with others, you are strongly advised to take extra precautions of wearing a face covering for safeguarding yourself and others.

 

Please do not come if:

  •  You have any symptoms of the COVID 19 (a new continuous cough, a high temperature or a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell) 
  • You are in self-isolation due to presence of COVID 19 within your family household/ shared household bubble
  • You have recently returned from abroad to the UK are in a 14 days quarantine period.

 

Thanks so much for your understanding and co-operation.

We look forward to welcoming you all.

 

With much love

In Baba’s yaad

 

BK Jayanti and BK Sanjay

News from Jayantiben in London: 26 July

27 July 2020

Today was the first day we opened for BKs of the Environs of London to come to Baba’s house since March. They were very, very happy to come, and it was a beautiful atmosphere of love. We had asked for 120 max to register, and 120 came. Special Bhog was offered for Didi Manmohini; although the date is actually Tuesday, 28 July but we wanted the Sunday Class to experience the Bhog so we honoured Didi on the 26th itself. There was also the possibility of playing a little video in which Didi was speaking very beautifully; Didi’s voice is incredibly sweet in any of the recordings that I’ve heard.

Real Sympathy - An Online Conversation with Sister Jaymini by InnerSpace Wembley

22 July 2020

Time: Tuesday 21 July, 6:45 pm - 7:45 pm

 

Real sympathy is a shared feeling. It is usually a feeling of sorrow or compassion for another person's loss or predicament. It is part of our conditioned learning to express sympathy for someone's situation. It can be a few standard words or phrases such as 'sorry for your loss'. However, real sympathy had a different connotation.

 

Let us learn this evening about the finer nuances in the meaning of these human emotions.

 

About the Speaker:

Jaymini Patel: For over 40 years Jaymini has been a teacher with the Brahma Kumaris.   A gifted and inspiring speaker, she has represented the Brahma Kumaris in many countries. She is the main Co-ordinator for community outreach in the UK, in particular in the Midlands. A tireless and dedicated worker, she is also the director for the BK Publications in London and has been a key instrument to create and produce high-quality publications, audio, and media products which have touched and transformed many people's lives. She lived and studied with the senior Rajyoga teacher, Dadi Janki. Dadi’s intensive yet practical training instilled in her a deep sense of care for people at every level and a deep recognition of truth and love. She looks after all practical elements of death, dying, bereavement, and funerals for the Brahma Kumaris in London. The time of death and what to do next, including how to deal with the change, brings a lot of complex emotions and things to deal with.

News from Jayantiben in London: 17 July

18 July 2020

There have been several meetings happening on Zoom. We’ve been preparing for the opening of the House not only to the GCH daily students, but also for the wider circle that come to GCH on Sundays from the surrounding areas. That’s being planned for 26 July, so that we have all our systems for Registration etc worked out, to follow all government guidelines. We’ve been blessed with a good amount of space, and the Auditorium holds 120 comfortably with physical distancing, so that will be our target.

 

We’ve also been discussing Rakhi programmes. Perhaps there won’t be so many people coming from other parts of the country, but even so we’ve organised 7 Rakhi programmes. A change this year will be that yes, there has to be Registration to keep to the numbers, but we’ve also opened up all the Evening Rakhi programmes to everyone, whether they are from Hindi, English or Tamil Murli Classes. Normally we try and keep them separate so that it becomes convenient for several reasons, but this time it’s going to be each one coming whenever it’s convenient for them.

 

Morning Class continues in the Auditorium, and also the Conference Room.

News from Jayantiben in London: 14 July

15 July 2020

I arrived late on 13th night in London, but I am in home quarantine. Everything is fine. There was a very lovely welcome scene on arrival in the courtyard of GCH, and also then in the Seminar Room. Brijben of Oxford traveled with me from India, and she also is in home isolation in Diamond House.

 

The last two days in Madhuban were very, very busy. Word got around that I was leaving for London, and so there were many personal and group meetings, and also classes. On Saturday evening, Hansaben, myself and the team went to Tapovan Farm where we met with the brothers who live there, but also the construction team. It was a meeting of love. Bharatbhai had also arranged a picnic for everyone, which was enjoyed by all.

 

On Friday and Saturday, I had a taste of the monsoons so this year I’ve seen all the different seasons of Abu: Winter in February, Spring in March, Summer in April-May-June, and now the Monsoons in July! Leaving Madhuban was not so easy after being there for five-and-a-half months, but it’s also lovely to be back in London. Baba has given us homes across the world.

 

London is slowly relaxing the Lockdown, so classes are now happening in GCH, with all maintaining physical distancing in the big rooms that Baba has given us, so all is well.

 

OM SHANTI

When faced with a given situation a person with a positive mindset will view it as a possibility, a challenge, an opportunity for growth. A person with a negative mindset will see it as a problem, a disaster, as something to resist, to battle and succumb to defeat and despair. It all depends on a person's perceptions and attitude to life.

 

Our speaker this evening will talk about this subject and show us how we can educate ourselves to view problems as possibilities.

 

Speaker: Guillermo (Bill) Simó , Spain

Guillermo (Bill) Simó has been a student and teacher with the Brahma Kumaris since 1986. He is an active member of the Spanish Coordination Team overseeing Brahma Kumaris activities in Spain and supporting Spanish language speaking countries worldwide. Since 2005, Bill has worked as an executive coach, a facilitator and trainer in Leadership, and Personal and Leadership Development. He has extensive experience in executive coaching, facilitating and training at management level in companies including Nestlé, Telefónica, Laietana, MACSA, BicGraphic, Mango, Volvo, Bricomart, and La Caixa.
