'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

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.

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.

“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.

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.

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.

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.     

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.

   

 

   

 

 

Kalraj Mishra, Union Minister Addresses the Brahma Kumaris’ 80th Anniversary Celebrations

15 April 2017

 

 

“Science, spirituality must go hand in hand”

Mount Abu / Abu Road, March 27
​Holistic progress can come about only when material and spiritual development go hand in hand, Kalraj Mishra, Union Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, said today while addressing dignitaries who had gathered here to mark the Brahma Kumaris’ 80th anniversary.

He said that with the powerful spiritual leadership of 101-year-old Dadi Janki, the organisation was capable of showing the right direction to the country and the world.      
On the second day of the four-day celebrations, a host of prominent speakers lauded the Brahma Kumaris for setting an example of women’s empowerment and said that its message of peace was much needed in the world today.   

More than 6,000 dignitaries from the country and abroad are attending the International Conference-cum-Cultural Festival at the Shantivan campus of the Brahma Kumaris. The event was formally inaugurated yesterday by Prime Minister Narendra Modi through tele-conferencing from the capital.

Lalit Kumar, an outstanding scientist of DRDO, said that though scientific advances had made technology more accessible, people were becoming addicted to gadgets, so moral education was essential in the current times.

He said while science was proven through logic, spirituality could only be felt by personal experience, and congratulated the Brahma Kumaris on running their management smoothly with the help of self-motivated volunteers.

Veteran journalist Rajiv Ranjan Nag said the fourth pillar of democracy was seeing a downfall in values as media groups were now becoming handmaids of business houses. He said Brahma Kumaris was the only organisation of its kind in the world run by women on such a large scale, and added that society needed the mantra of Om Shanti more than ever before because it was under extreme stress.

Mahadev Jankar, Minister for Animal Husbandry, Dairy Development and Fishery Development in Maharashtra, said the knowledge given at the Brahma Kumaris could bring about great transformation, and suggested that the organisation look into the field of animal welfare.

Dr. M H Ghazali, Editor, United News Network, said that India was the only country that could become a world guru because it had always given the message of peace. He urged the BKs to take the initiative to make value education a part of school curricula and also conduct an awareness campaign in rural areas about the role of right nutrition in good health.

Prof. Radhamadhab Dash, Vice-Chancellor of Jagannath Sanskrit Vishvavidyalaya in Puri, Odisha, said the mantra of Om Shanti was meant to bring back peace into the world.   
              
Earlier in the day, H.H. Swami Chidanand Swami Saraswati, president of Parmarath Niketan Ashram, said the Brahma Kumaris had shown how the world could be one family. “Chaos does not happen outside; it happens inside of us,” he said, asking everyone to participate in building a culture of trust.

BK Karuna, head of multimedia at the Brahma Kumaris, apprised everyone of the latest media collaborations of the organisation. He said Tata Sky had launched a channel to show the daily activities of Brahma Kumaris centres.

BK Marcelo Bulk, Director of the Brahma Kumaris centres in Colombia, said that in the fast-paced urban culture, where the only certainty was uncertainty, the loss of one’s real, spiritual identity was a big crisis. This is where India, with its rich tradition and spiritual heritage, was making a difference by bringing peace and meaning to life. Referring to the decades of war in Colombia, he said: “Peace is not something that you can get by signing a treaty, but through deep reflection.”

G.V.S.R. Anjaneyulu, MLA and chairman of Shivshakthi Group, Hyderabad, said that practising Rajyoga meditation as taught at the Brahma Kumaris had given him a great deal of internal satisfaction. He said knowledge of peace and happiness could not be received from top universities, but from spiritual organisations like the BK.  

Asserting that spirituality had answers to current challenges, Dr. G. Vivekanand, Advisor, Telangana Government, proposed that the Brahma Kumaris work to spread their knowledge in the rural areas of his state.

Applauding the selfless service of the Brahma Kumaris, Acharya Dr. Lokesh Muni, social reformer and writer, said the organisation was working tirelessly for creating a new society.
Anuradha Prasad, Editor-in-Chief, News 24, congratulated the organisation for demonstrating the values of purity and simplicity. She urged the BKs to help in converting rajniti (politics) into rashtraniti (inclusive governance).                
                  
R.C. Raina, CEO, Navgraha TV, said that the Brahma Kumaris had taken woman power forward. He said that to bring about social transformation, the country’s education system, politics, and structure of family, religion and spirituality needed to be revamped.
   
Giving her inspirations, Dadi Ratan Mohini, Joint Chief of the Brahma Kumaris, said spirituality should be manifest in our speech and conduct. “I may consider myself good, but what do others feel from my words and behavior,” she said.

Ramesh Mittal, Chancellor, Medi-Caps University, Indore, said the Brahma Kumaris were upholding moral values which, he said, were vanishing fast from society. He requested the institution to seek the government’s help and start courses in educational institutions to impart moral education.

Anurag Batra, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, Business World, said the Brahma Kumaris had done more for others than any other institution in the country. At a time when people were more interested in physical fitness, he said mental disorders were on the rise, and the teachings of the Brahma Kumaris helped build one’s mental muscle.

Sankar Laskar, Chief Editor of Asomiya Khabar, published from Guwahati, said that after having visited the Brahma Kumaris campus, he believed he would be able to change his perspective from a material to a spiritual one.

Kanak Sen Deka, Chief Editor of Dainik Agradoot, published from Guwahati, appreciated the work being done by the Brahma Kumaris and drew a parallel between their teachings and the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi and Srimanta Sankardev, the 15th Century saint and social reformer from Assam.

Atul Agarwal, Editor-in-Chief of Hindi Khabar, said he had received soul energy in the Brahma Kumaris campus and wondered how everyone here remained happy and every moment seemed to be festive.

Shivani Aggarwal, Channel Head of Pragya TV, said her life had been changed by her association with the Brahma Kumaris, and emphasised on the need to see events and news in a detached manner, without their affecting one’s life.

Bishabhar Newar, Chief Editor, Chhapte Chhapte, Kolkata, said that with science at its peak, we may know what is happening across the world but we are moving away from each other and do not know what is happening in our neighbourhood. Without spiritual power, science cannot solve our problems, he said.   

The highlight of the morning session was a ‘royal’ felicitation of senior members who have played a pivotal role in the Brahma Kumaris’ services for several decades.

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.

Brahma Kumaris - a Spiritual Beacon in Modern Life, say Dignitaries in International Conference on 80th anniversary celebrations

28 March 2017

 

 

Abu Road, March 27: Lauding the long and committed role of the Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishva Vidyalaya in practically demonstrating spirituality, dignitaries from all walks of life congratulated the organisation on completing 80 years of service to humanity.

They were speaking to an audience that included 6,000 prominent guests from the country and abroad who had gathered for the anniversary celebrations at the BK headquarters here. The four-day event was formally inaugurated yesterday by Prime Minister Narendra Modi through tele-conferencing from the capital.   
             
H.H. Swami Chidanand Saraswati, president of Parmarth Niketan Ashram, said the Brahma Kumaris had shown how the world could be one family. “Chaos does not happen outside; it happens inside of us,” he said, asking everyone to participate in building a culture of trust. He also encouraged everyone in the audience to plant a tree and help save many from diseases by cooperating in building toilets.    

BK Karuna, Head of Multimedia at the Brahma Kumaris, apprised everyone of the latest media collaborations of the organisation that would make available to the public spiritual songs and music. He said Tata Sky had launched a channel to show the daily activities of Brahma Kumaris centres.

BK Marcelo Bulk, Director of the Brahma Kumaris centres in Colombia, said that in the fast-paced urban culture, where the only certainty was uncertainty, the loss of one’s real, spiritual identity was a big crisis. This is where India, with its rich tradition and spiritual heritage, was making a difference by bringing peace and meaning to life. Referring to the decades of war in Colombia, he said: “Peace is not something that you can get by signing a treaty but through deep reflection.”

G.V.S.R. Anjaneyulu, MLA and Chairman of Shivshakthi Group, Hyderabad, said that practising Rajyoga meditation taught at the Brahma Kumaris had given him a great deal of internal satisfaction. He said knowledge of peace and happiness could not be received from top universities, but from spiritual organisations like the BK.  

Convinced that spirituality had answers to current challenges, Dr. G. Vivekanand, Advisor, Telangana Government, proposed that the Brahma Kumaris work to spread their knowledge in the rural areas of his state.

Applauding the selfless service of the Brahma Kumaris, Acharya Dr. Lokesh Muni, social reformer and writer, said the organisation was working tirelessly for creating a new society.

Anuradha Prasad, Editor-in-Chief, News 24, congratulated the organisation for demonstrating the values of purity and simplicity. She urged the BKs to help in converting rajniti (politics) into rashtraniti (inclusive governance).    
                              
R.C. Raina, CEO, Navgraha TV, said that the Brahma Kumaris had taken woman power forward. He said that to bring about social transformation, the country’s education system, politics, and structure of family, religion and spirituality needed to be revamped.    

Giving her inspirations, Dadi Ratan Mohini, Joint Chief of the Brahma Kumaris, said spirituality should be manifest in our speech and conduct. “I may consider myself good, but what do others feel from my words and behavior,” she said.

Ramesh Mittal, Chancellor, Medi-Caps University, Indore, said the Brahma Kumaris were upholding moral values which, he said, were vanishing fast from society. He requested the institution to seek the government’s help and start courses in educational institutions to impart moral education.

Anurag Batra, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, Business World, said the Brahma Kumaris had done more for others than any other institution in the country. At a time when people were more interested in physical fitness, he said mental disorders were on the rise, and the teachings of the Brahma Kumaris helped build one’s mental muscle.

Sankar Laskar, Chief Editor of Asomiya Khabar, published from Guwahati, said that after having visited the Brahma Kumaris campus, he believed he would be able to change his perspective from a material to a spiritual one.

Kanak Sen Deka, Chief Editor of Dainik Agradoot, published from Guwahati, appreciated the work being done by the Brahma Kumaris and drew a parallel between their teachings and the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi and Srimanta Sankardev, the 15th Century saint and social reformer from Assam.

Atul Agarwal, Editor-in-Chief of Hindi Khabar, said he had received soul energy in the Brahma Kumaris campus and wondered how everyone here remained happy and every moment seemed to be festive.

Shivani Aggarwal, Channel Head of Pragya TV, said her life had been changed by her association with the Brahma Kumaris, and emphasised on the need to see events and news in a detached manner, without their affecting one’s life.

The highlight of the morning session was a ‘royal’ felicitation of senior members who have played a pivotal role in the Brahma Kumaris’ services for several decades.

Former Dy. Prime Minister of India, L K Advani addresses 80th anniversary celebrations of Brahma Kumaris

27 March 2017

 

 

Advani Lauds Brahma Kumaris’ Services

 

Abu Road, March 26: Former Dy. Prime Minister of India & Senior BJP leader L K Advani today led a host of luminaries in paying tribute to the work of the Brahma Kumaris, as the institution began its 80th anniversary celebrations at its campus in Abu Road.

Deputy Chairman of Upper House of Parliament (Rajya Sabha ) 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, as more than 6,000 prominent figures from India and abroad gathered for the four-day event.

Members of Parliament, state legislators, senior judges, industrialists and media personalities are attending the celebrations, which will be formally inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi this evening by video conferencing from Delhi.

Speaking during the reception session inside the cavernous Diamond Hall, Asia’s largest pillar-free hall, Advani said Brahma Kumaris is the only institution of its kind in the world that has 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 are 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 are 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 is no ordinary achievement; it is 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 are 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, Raveena Tandon said it is 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.

News from Sr Jayanti: GIM Meeting, Delhi Yoga Program, BapDada's Meeting and Visit of Aunty Betty's family to Madhuban

26 March 2017

 

March 19: After the Holi celebrations, we still had Dadi Janki with us. We had the GIM meeting for a full day in which a lot of news and information as shared. India is doing amazing things with social media and TV channels. For example there has been 25% addition of students in Nepal since the Nepalese language channel started in India and so amazing things are happening. We also had an International Publications meeting.
I have now come to Delhi for the Yoga Program been arranged by the Ministry of AYUSH. As part of the government program, there are around 50 double foreigners who are here. Sr Mohini has also come. Dadi was invited and they very much wanted her to be here but her health is now at the moment a little fragile, so she didn’t come.

March 20: Monday 20th March was a very beautiful meeting with Baba. The silence was so powerful that it felt as if Baba didn’t wish to speak and only wanted to give drishti. That also would have been fine, but of course Baba was mindful of all the new ones who haven’t had that sustenance and had come to hear Baba, and so Baba spoke a very beautiful meditation commentary giving us the experience of our ‘Sparkling Form’....
 
March 21: On the 21st, we had Regional Meetings.

Aunty Betty’s lokik brothers, daughters, sons and grand-daughter are here, so it’s a group of 12 in all. It has been beautiful to see how they are responding to Madhuban. Some were last in Madhuban over 30 years ago; some of course come a few times a year, so there is a whole​ variety. All of them have deep love for Baba from the beginning till the end, as Baba commented to them yesterday.

News by Sr Jayanti from Gyan Sarovar

18 March 2017

 

On 12th evening, we had the Publications Meeting with everyone sharing. There is a huge amount of activity in terms of Publishing across the world, in many, many languages. Baba’s message is being carried forward to all the different corners of the world.

It was amazing to see Dadi Janki revive in such a fantastic way. At 6.15pm we thought she wasn’t going to make it to class, but there Dadi was in Class conducting meditation, and then sharing Toli and Gems with everyone. At night, Dadi even had chitchat with a small group.

On 13th morning, we celebrated Holi in Gyan Sarovar with much dancing, love and laughter, after offering Bhog to sweet Baba. Bhog ​Offering ​and celebrations also ​took place in ​the other campuses. Holi this time has been very quiet in Gyan Sarovar, which is a pleasant change. Perhaps it’s the presence of Dadi in Gyan Sarovar that has made it that way, but we are grateful.

We have far exceeded the number of quotas for DF this time, and so accommodation is turning out to be tight, but Baba’s instruments are making sure that everyone at least has a comfortable bed.

OM SHANTI

News from Sr Jayanti re: Recent NC/CC Retreat and Board Meetings in Shantivan

13 March 2017

 

The NC/CC retreat and meeting has gone really well. We had several parties. The first was a dinner party at the Solar Site at a time which was absolutely lovely in terms of perfect climate. It was very beautiful to see the exquisite arrangements that the Solar Team had made for hosting our dinner. We visited the Turbine Home where we saw the amazing production of electricity being transmitted to Shantivan. Shantivan is currently being supplied with electricity from India One Solar Site. There are several other things that need attention, and all this is happening gradually.
 
We were also invited to a very special picnic at Tapovan Farm by Nirwairbhai. It was a Sneh-Milan, an affectionate meeting, but also a flag-hoisting for Shiv Jayanti at Tapovan. Ishu Dadi joined us and Sudeshben, myself and many members of the extended RC group were with us to enjoy Nirwairbhai's company, and entertainment by sisters from Mozambique, Germany, China and Japan. We had wonderful singers from India and abroad too, and a beautiful lunch. Many enjoyed a visit to all the other important places at Tapovan including the Spa, where you can walk in the mud and feel the healing power of nature, and the Herb Garden etc.
 
On the 9th, we had the start of the Council of National Coordinators, which was a very sweet ceremony with flags being put into a globe in the centre of the room, with 75 countries being represented. This is to be an annual event, where National Coordinators will decide themselves the subjects that need to be discussed, and create an Agenda accordingly so that there can be a flow of information from CCs to NCs and RCs, and the other way around also.

There was a beautiful tea-party at the Solar Site on Thursday afternoon. The Retreat concluded with another beautiful presentation of Mother Nature, by Sister Chrissy of Australia.
 
Dadi Janki came for the closing of the event. In fact, for many evenings, Dadi has been with the NC/CC group sharing meditation, love and wisdom.
 
Each year, the Design for the NC/CC retreat seems to become more and more refined, richer and more rewarding.
 
On 10th and 11th, we had a retreat in which Members of Boards from across the world came together. This year's theme has been 'Spirituality in Yagya Administration'. Nirwairbhai was able to come; Dadi Janki was present on the 11th.
 
Mohiniben of USA and the other RCs have also been present, sharing their wisdom.
 
Apart from the Board Members, many of the NCs have also been present. This has been a gathering of 170. On the 11th, Mohiniben was interviewed by Br Ken on the subject of 'Spirituality in Administration'. On 12th morning, Br Charlie interviewed me on 'Relationships'.
 
I am now in Gyan Sarovar. There are more retreats lined up, and of course the next double foreigners group will be arriving soon.
 
OM SHANTI​

13 March 2017

 

 

Be Bold for Change

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Radio Madhuban organized two public events for the local women in Abu with the theme "Be Bold For Change". An event was organized on 7th Mar, 2017 at Luniyapura, Abu Road, where around 25 women participated in the event. Team Radio Madhuban heard their stories and inspired them to be bold. Mrs. Rashmi, Pathologist guided the women on how to increase their calcium in the body and not to be anemic. She also advised the women not to take addictions and have a healthy and nutritious diet. On the other side, RJ Usha motivated the women to come forward for change by sharing her own personal life experience. The women took the advantage of the platform and interacted with the RJs and pathologist to have more understanding about the subject and expressed their gratitude.
 
Continuing the celebrations on the same theme Radio Madhuban organized a panel discussion. The panel was attended by Dr. Kanak Srivastav, Chief, Village Outreach Program, GHRC, Mr. Avdesh Ji Deval, Advocate, Abu Road, Sis Sudha, Director, Brahma Kumaris, Moscow, Russia. The program was attended by over 50 women from Abu Road. The women took the opportunity to come forward to put their questions to the panelists and took the advice. On this occasion Sis. Sudha said being bold is to live with our own values and project the womenhood. To be bold we need not to loose our traditions and act like someone else. Advocate Avdesh Ji focused on the dignity and equality that the law is giving for women. Dr. Kanak suggested the women to take care of their health and families health. Ms. Rekha, a regular listener of Radio Madhuban, who is physically challenged with the vision, stood as an example and shared her experience.
