BK Launch Programme for 50 Years Anniversary of Service in the UK

17 October 2021

London (UK): Around 350 BK family members gathered together at Global Co-operation House in London to celebrate their 50 years Anniversary of Service in the UK.

It was a very beautiful stage with decorations of golden balloons and the symbol of the heart with God’s logo spreading rays.  MCs, BK Pearl and BK Arti, conducted the programme with a lot of fun and banter. The programme included short stories from BK Jayanti, Additional Chief of Brahma Kumaris, BK Sudesh, Director of Brahma Kumaris in Europe  and 8 videos from across the regions of the UK. The interview of BK Sudesh and BK Jayanti was conducted by BK Philippa and BK Gopi.

After the videos, which were interspersed with beautiful messages from Dadi Ratan Mohini, Chief of Brahma Kumaris, BK Nirwair, General Secretary of Brahma Kumaris, BK Mohini, Additional Chief of Brahma Kumaris and BK Dr Nirmala, Joint Chief of Brahma Kumaris, there was a lot of fun playing with balloons –  a total of 2000 balloons!– that BK family members sponsored and helped BK Jasu in putting them all up!

Dadi Janki’s video clip was shown, her dancing to the ‘Dancing Queen’ song, which she loved, and the whole audience and those on stage danced together. After a few moments of silence, were the final words from BK Sudesh and BK Jayanti, and then the cake-cutting ceremony. The cake had been decorated with 200 edible roses that had been prepared by a band of helpers, with a lot of love, over for the last 10 days.

BK Ratan, BK Sanjay, BK Maureen and BK Shashi shared a few words of good wishes as well.  It generated a huge amount of loving energy and gratitude for all that God has done, and the magic that He has shown through these 50 years.

There were also people online from across the world who enjoyed the special anniversary celebration.

Seventh Meeting on Spirituality and Non-Violence Held in Barcelona

12 October 2021

Barcelona, Spain (Europe): As every year, several communities of Silo’s Message in Barcelona, agreed to organize the meeting on October 2nd, International Day of Nonviolence.

This time it had a “reunion” flavour, since last year it was not possible to celebrate it, due to the conditions imposed by the pandemic.

So, in a warm and inspiring atmosphere, the event took place, which was shared with the Bahá’í Faith, the Essene Women and Brahma Kumaris.

In each intervention, was an excellent pianist, who, with her melodies full of sensitivity, helped to create an atmosphere of relaxation and affection.

For this occasion, the friends of Brahma Kumaris (who had already participated in one of the last meetings) offered to hold the event in their new place.

The event was attended by about 50 people, with whom a brief exchange was shared.

At the end, was the feeling of continuing to learn and the joy of sharing with others the work of spreading the idea of Nonviolence and Spirituality.

News from Jayantiben (London): 9 October 2021

11 October 2021

Since the Government has lifted all restrictions of social distancing etc., we were able to gather a family of around 350 in Global House on 9 October morning. After Murli, we had the celebration of 50 years’ Anniversary of Service in the UK. This ran from 7.30am through to 9:30am. There were also people online from across the world enjoying the celebration with us.

It was a very beautiful stage with decorations of golden balloons and the symbol of the heart with Baba’s logo spreading rays. We had short stories from Sudeshdidi and Jayantiben, and 8 videos from across the regions of the UK. Our MCs, Sister Pearl and Sister Arti, conducted the programme with a lot of fun and banter. The interview of Sudeshdidi and myself was conducted by Sister Philippa and Sister Gopi.

After the videos, which were interspersed with beautiful messages from Dadi Ratan Mohini, Nirwairbhai, Mohiniben, and Dr Nirmalaben, we had a lot of fun playing with balloons–there were a total of 2000!–that some dear souls, Baba’s children, had sponsored, and also helped Jasuben putting them all up!

We then had Dadi Janki’s clip showing her dancing to the ‘Dancing Queen’ song, which she used to love, and the whole audience and those on stage also danced. After a few moments of silence, we had final words from Sudeshdidi and Jayantiben, and then the cake-cutting ceremony. The cake had been decorated with 200 edible roses that had been prepared by a band of helpers, with a lot of love, over for the last 10 days. Ratanbhai, Sanjaybhai, Sister Maureen and Sister Shashi shared a few words of good wishes as well. Tolis were then distributed to all. It generated a huge amount of loving energy and gratitude for all that Baba has done, and the magic that He has shown us through these years.

Thank you to everyone who sent their loving good wishes for this very special anniversary.

OM SHANTI

What Story Do You Choose to Tell? Tuesday, Oct 12th talk by Nidhi Shukla honoring Mental Health Day (6:45 pm - 7:45 pm BST)

10 October 2021

How do we relate our life stories or incidents in our lives?

 

Do we give prominence to the positives and the lessons learnt or re-iterate the not so pleasant feelings? Research work has suggested that the way we remember and share our personal stories have implications on our mental health and overall well-being.. 

 

Honouring Mental Health day, the speaker will highlight the understanding and practices that will help in taking care of our minds and also assist others.

Sudesh Didi – 2nd October 2021 Morning Sharing - GCH, London Golden Sparrow

7 October 2021

Om shanti.

 

Today, Baba once again reminds us of our own story. He reminds us to experience the original world of happiness, and establish it once again as it belongs to us. We owned the kingdom, then we lost it. And now we need to create it again.

 

Another beautiful thing Baba teaches is the quality of purity as our foundation. Our purity and happiness are our original and eternal sanskars. Purity, peace and happiness.

 

Bharat is known as the Golden Sparrow. On the one hand, it is called Bharat, the Land of Purity, the Land of Fullness, the Land of Light, the Land of Freedom, and the Wealthy Land. Wealth does not stay at one place. There is a connection between freedom and wealth. Wealth always travels from one place to another. So Golden Sparrow also flies from one religion to another. Deity religion: healthy, wealthy, happy, pure and prosperous. Wealth continues on the path of bhakti. Then gradually, we lose it. Wealth then goes to other religions. The more it travels, the more it gets scattered. Although the original wealth of wisdom travels, still the truth remains with Bharat. Then God Himself, the Truth, comes to make us understand about truth and falsehood. We now all once again become the golden boats, the messengers of peace, love and happiness and freedom.

 

The Sparrow goes from one branch to another, then another and another. So we are angels, or golden sparrows flying from one place to another for a short time, from here and there.

 

So I am also flying today. I am going to Germany for a short time. Tomorrow is the fifth birthday celebration of the retreat centre in Morrigan Seminar House or Retreat Centre. It was not planned, though it was planned in the drama but I had not planned to stay there. I came here because I had the consciousness that I want to celebrate the 50th service anniversary of the world, especially the UK. Drama worked everything out very well and I thought okay, I could go back for the celebration. So I fly today, afternoon and will come back on Thursday afternoon. I am taking leave for short time.  

 

Om shanti.
