News from Jayantiben in London: 10 January

10 January 2021

On Sunday, the 10th, we had to announce in Morning Class that for the time being this was our last Class collectively and physically in Global House, and that we would let Baba’s children know when we would restart. Although the Government has said Places of Worship can stay open, yet our local Brent Council is saying that 1 in 20 in the Brent Borough actually have been tested positive, whereas in the rest of London it’s 1 in 30, and so the local Council is very, very concerned about the situation, and of course, the Hospitals are overflowing.

 

The local Council can’t set the law, but have made a request to stop collective gatherings. Not just Brent Council but apparently the Mayor of London has also requested that the Government actually close Places of Worship, as these are the places where there is a greater chance of the virus spreading fast. The Council has been highly cooperative with planning permissions for all the construction that we’ve done in the past, and of course maintaining a good relationship with them is important, so we decided on the 9th with our Trustees and our Health & Safety Officer that it’s important we close Baba’s house for Morning Class.

 

However, the premise is that we will be open for Individual Prayer and Meditation so that at least there is less likelihood of socialising or any contact at close quarters. Masks have been mandatory for a while, and generally I think most people observe this, but it’s time for another lockdown. Let’s see how things go.

 

Baba’s family is fine, and Baba’s service continues. The special week of Tapasya with morning and evening Events for Self-Progress had an average of 300 people participating on Zoom, so people appreciated it greatly.

 

Our plans for 18 January will have to be modified, and so we are now going to be seeing how best to let everyone take benefit. Baba’s Room is looking beautiful; the white curtains etc were put up prior to the weekend. Diamond House Reception area has become a beautiful garden with a large image of Brahma Baba standing in the garden, welcoming us and being with us. The Seminar Room has the Tower of Peace set up, so when people come for individual meditation, they will still be able to enjoy these places, together with the Silence Room.

 

OM SHANTI

News from Jayantiben in London: 1 January 2021

4 January 2021

Greetings for a very special year ahead to each one!

Morning Class was full on the 1st, and we had a special Bhog offering to Baba. After class, we started our full week’s Tapasya programme under the theme: “Keeping Safe under Baba’s Canopy.” The first session was on the 1st morning from 10 am-12 pm, with short talks followed by Guided Commentaries by myself, Sister Gopi, and Sister Jasu, together with visuals of Madhuban.

On the 1st evening, we honoured what would have been Dadi Janki’s 105th anniversary, with a very lovely film that Hansaben has made of Dadi Janki with beautiful music, and an interview that has prepared by Godlywood Studio, again in memory of Dadi. So it was a day of Baba’s remembrance, but also sweet memories of Dadi.

OM SHANTI

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

 

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and hoping that 2021 brings good health and lots of happiness.

 

The month of January is a sacred time for us and a great opportunity to come close to Baba.  To help bring us into this beautiful energy during the first week, we have created an 8-day programme over zoom and webcast for the London and UK Brahmin family.

REPLAY of "Detach from the Drama of Life to Find Some Peace of Mind" with Wendy Marshall, hosted by Onepoint Wellness on 18 December

28 December 2020

Wendy has been a meditator for many years and enjoys recording meditations for children, teens, and adults. She founded Hope Mountain, a social enterprise that provides innovative resources and training for teachers and other care professionals to help them reach into the inner world of disadvantaged children and adults.

 

“I feel that meditation has opened many doors in my creative life enabling me to see possibilities that would otherwise have been closed to me. There is nothing more beautiful than finding peace in the middle of a busy day and experiencing silence when you need it most. It's helped with many breakthroughs.”

 

Free guided meditation - Fridays 9 AM UK

 

We are all facing various challenges in these interesting times. Meditation practice helps the team at Onepoint to establish and maintain a peaceful, positive, and happy mind. We want to share what works for us with our clients, partners, friends — and anyone who is interested.

 

Each 30-minute session is run by an experienced meditation facilitator and is based on the ancient method of yoga for the mind.
