Bhog Message for Dadi Janki of 27 March 2021

10 April 2021

Special bhog tribute for Dadi Janki on her first anniversary – Shantivan

 

Beloved Avyakt BapDada’s deeply loved instrument teachers and brothers and sisters of this land and abroad, who are the decoration of the Brahmin clan, those who are always engaged in world service, and who are seated on God’s heart-throne through your renunciation, tapasya and service, please accept Godly love-filled sweet remembrance.

 

Respected Dadi Jankiji, one deeply loved by all of us, who was always seated on BapDada’s heart-throne, who was the pride of the whole Brahmin family and the embodiment of renunciation and tapasya – our Former Chief Administrator – it is now one year since she renounced her physical body. On the day of remembrance of her first anniversary, some brothers and sisters from this land and abroad arrived in Shantivan to offer her a special tribute. On the 27th morning at 7.00 am, some senior brothers and sisters inaugurated the beautiful memorial “Shakti Stambh” (Tower of Power) created as a memorial of Dadi Janki, by putting garlands of flowers in silence. After that, all brothers and sisters who had come also offered garlands of flowers and emerged all their memories of Dadi in Dadi’s sitting room, and then gathered in the Diamond Hall at 10.30am, where senior sisters and brothers shared their beautiful experiences with Dadiji. After that, in the afternoon, Rukmaniben offered special bhog to BapDada in Dadiji’s name. Dadiji came into the gathering for a few moments, gave everyone sweet drishti, flowers and fruits and took them beyond with her glance. After that, the message brought by the messenger is as follows:

 

Today, when I reached Baba in the subtle region, I saw that Dadi was sitting very close to Baba. As soon as I reached there, I gave the remembrances of all brothers and sisters. Baba said: Child, there are two things in the world. One is sorrow and the other is happiness. Today, Baba is especially receiving remembrances of all the children for Dadi. The remembrance of elevated thoughts is reaching Baba with a fast speed. With that remembrance, Baba made the child, Dadi, emerge there in the subtle region. Then I said: Baba, since everyone is remembering her, in return for that remembrance, something has to be given, something has to be done. Baba smiled with a very sweet drishti and said: Child, everyone has tied the Father with their love through this remembrance. Then, it was as though I fell asleep in the subtle region, and I wasn’t aware of where I was. (Dadiji came into the gathering for a short time and took everyone beyond with her drishti.) After some time, Dadi came there with Baba, after having toured around there. I said: Dadi, where did you go?

 

Baba said: Something has to be given in return of the remembrance, so Baba had taken the child to the physical world. Baba then made everyone emerge in the subtle region and said: The vision of the whole Brahmin family is especially on the Dadis because they are the original jewels. The child has done a lot of service tirelessly in this land and abroad. The month of March has become a special memorial of the Dadis. Dadi Gulzar’s 12th day was celebrated and this Dadi’s 12 months is being celebrated. This is also the symbol of their love of the confluence age. In sakar form also, the Dadis had a lot of love for one another. Baba said: In the subtle region too, a gathering of the Dadis has come together. When Baba said that a gathering had come together, then along with Dadi Janki, Dadi Gulzar, Dadi Prakashmani, Dadi Chandermani and the other main Dadis also emerged. Baba said: Now, in the subtle region too, this gathering of those whose thoughts are focused on establishment is getting stronger too. Now, the task of the establishment will be accomplished at a very fast speed. Baba, You are giving all the children this signal that now is the time to be very subtle and go very fast. Children mustn’t make any mistakes and need to pay attention to their elevated effort.

 

Then, it was as though bhog was placed in front of Baba and the Dadis, and Baba made all the Dadis accept bhog from Madhuban with a lot of love. Baba said: Look, those who have made this bhog, those who have decorated it, and those who brought it serve with so much love. So, today, give remembrances to all those children who have prepared the bhog, who have prepared the place and those who brought bhog in front of Baba. Baba gave special remembrance to all the children from this land and abroad too. Baba said: Today, all are sitting with one aim, and Dadi is intoxicated in herself. Just as Dadi used to run around in the sakar form, so, on this day, special remembrance of Dadi and Baba was merged in each one’s heart. Saying this, Baba and the Dadis gave loving remembrance and, bringing this love and remembrance, I came back down.

Madhuban Newsletter – April 2021

(Special inspirations to observe every scene of the drama as a detached observer and to make your stage unshakeable and immovable.)

Sweet letter of remembrance 15-3-2021)

 

Innocent Lord Shiva, and our Beloved Father’s deeply loving instrument teachers and all Baba’s invaluable jewels in this land and abroad, all brothers and sisters who are the decoration of the Brahmin clan, please accept Godly love-filled sweet remembrance.

 

This time, the 85th Trimurti Shiv Jayanti has come with a completely new scene in the history of the yagya, and all of you witnessed it. Generally, very good service programmes were taking place with a lot of zeal and enthusiasm in all places. At all places, many different types of service was taking place to give the message of the incarnation of our Father, Shiva, the Innocent Lord. Everyone hoisted the flag in Shiv Baba’s remembrance, but because Dadi Gulzarji suddenly became avyakt, it was that wave that spread everywhere. Some main brothers and sisters reached Shantivan to bid the final farewell to Dadiji. On 13th March, everyone gave a very emotional tribute to Dadiji and bid her a final farewell. All of you must have watched that scene through the facilities provided by science. That is also a destiny of the drama that all our three senior Dadis have become avyakt and now have become residents of the subtle region for Baba’s unlimited service.

 

Now, we will continue to see and experience how our sweet Baba wants to carry out the unlimited service for world benefit. Now, special bhog will be offered to Dadiji for 13 days. After that, the first anniversary of our sweet Dadi Jankiji is also coming. For Dadi Jankiji to leave us in the middle of lockdown on 27th March 2020, was also a new lesson for the whole Brahmin family. There will be bhog offering programme for Dadiji at all places.

 

Now, we are coming close to the completion of the avyakt season of meeting our sweet Baba on-line. Now, the last turn of the Tamil Nadu zone will take place. Then, powerful yoga bhatthi programmes will take place in all three complexes. Baba is giving all of us children this golden chance to make us all complete and perfect. This year, we all have to do special tapasya, and points for that are being sent to you. While seeing every scene of the drama as a completely detached observer, with your unshakeable and immovable stage, we have to give a return of the sustenance received from our beloved BapDada. Now, with our highest activities and happy face, we have to do the service of revealing the Father. Whatever work of the establishment still remains, all of us together have to complete it.

 

Now, leave all the limited shores, have an attitude of unlimited disinterest and have special tapasya. This attitude of disinterest is the basis of transformation. Baba has taught us the lesson of world transformation through self-transformation from the beginning. So, definitely, while having pure and positive thoughts for the self, with pure thoughts for everyone, with good wishes and pure feelings, we will accomplish the elevated task of benefit for the self and benefit the world. Achcha.

 

Lots of love and remembrance to all.

In Godly service, B.K. Ratanmohini

Divine message 13-03-2021

Today, as I reached the subtle region carrying the remembrances of all of you filled with deep love, in the subtle region, a beautiful decoration of many types of garlands of diamonds and pearls was visible.  I could see Baba coming from a distance in a beautifully decorated viman.  Both Baba and Dadi were in it, and seeing them, it felt as though Dadi was in Baba’s form and Baba was in Dadi’s form.  One second, it was Baba and one second it was Dadi.  I couldn’t recognise whether it was Dadi or Baba.  I said: Baba, today, Dadi’s form is looking very different.  So, Baba said: The chariot has so much importance.  Baba has made this chariot complete and perfect with very good planning and revealed it in front of the devotees in this form.  Then I said: Dadi, you went to the subtle region just like that.  Dadi said: Baba would take me on a tour somewhere or other every day.  I asked: Where did you used to go to?  She smiled and said: Ask Baba.  Baba said: This child has had such a part from the beginning that she used to bring many types of trance messages, with which many special tasks of the yagya continued.  For some time, Baba has been taking this child to different places and sometimes she would serve the scientists, and sometimes, she would go and give a message to the great leaders who are bringing about world transformation and continued to inspire them.  Then I said: Dadi, what was your body doing?  So, Dadi replied: The body used to do its own work and Baba would do His work.  Baba said: From the beginning, this child has had the part of being detached and loving, of being free from any other thoughts.  The doctors were looking after her body very well.  They too used to have very good experiences.  Some would experience power and blessings just on touching Dadi’s body.  I then told Dadi: Dadi, everyone is remembering you a lot today.  Dadi said: Give my remembrances to everyone.  What did I see then?  There were many cards in front of me, and there was something or other written on each of those cards.  Some were writing thanks to Dadi, and some were complaining.  Dadi, you enabled us to meet Baba, you gave us so many blessings, you gave us the experience of sakar Baba.  It was as though Dadi then began to look at those cards.  It was as though a mountain of cards was visible, and that whole mountain changed into a tiny light, and everyone was receiving power from that light.  Dadi said: It is not a matter of giving thanks for these experiences and the power that you are receiving.  Baba says: Children, now become full with so much power that you are able to give others the experience of the perfect form.

 

Then I said: Baba, You gave us so many experiences through this chariot, so what will happen now?  Baba said: Now, children have to prepare themselves of their own accord.  Whatever you have received, you have to practise that and move towards perfection.  Just as the daughter was perfect in everything, in the same way, children have to make themselves perfect and create the new world.  Then Baba made all the children emerge in the subtle region.  Baba and Dadi were in the middle of all of them.  Sometimes, Dadi was visible in Baba’s heart, and sometimes, she was seen as being merged in Baba’s arms.  Baba was giving everyone drishti and through that drishti, one or another blessing was reaching each one.  Dadi was looking very detached and lovely in the form of light.  Baba said: The child has merged the Father in her heart from the beginning and Baba has made the child carry out special tasks.  Even now, in order to make the children complete and perfect for the new world, Baba will enable the child to do service for the advance party.

Then I said: Baba, today, I have brought bhog for Dadi.  Baba opened the bhog and began to feed Dadi.  Dadi then said: Call everyone to the subtle region today and feed them bhog.  Then Dadi took some bhog in her hands and gave it to Baba in His hand.  It was as though from Baba’s hand, it continued to reach each one’s mouth and each one also continued to receive one or another blessing.  Then I asked: Dadi, do you want to say anything to everyone?  So she said: Baba, give all of them such a throne on which they can be seated, and just then a throne emerged in front of me.  There were words written on all four corners.  1) Merciful.  2)  Good wishes.  3) World Benefactor .  4) Image of blessings.  Then Dadi said: Now, according to the time, each one has to be merciful for the self.  Especially when you have thoughts for Brahmins, then be merciful and sacrifice those thoughts.  You have to have mercy for the devotees and others, and by doing so, your own experience will increase and you will also receive blessings.  According to the time, there is a need for this now.

 

Then, together with remembrances of all Dadis, I also conveyed remembrance of Neeluben and all the service companions.  Baba made all of them emerge in the subtle region.  While giving drishti to Neeluben and all the service companions, Baba said: Look how child Neelu did so much service while being tireless.  Baba caught hold of her hand and made her swing in the swings and said: The child played her part of service with a lot of love with all the companions.  The fortune of many opened through this part, and they also received so many experiences.  This chariot has been looked after with so much love, and Baba is always with you anyway.  To look after the chariot, to receive blessings, this is also a way of increasing fortune.  The child’s fortune is very beautiful.

 

Then Baba made the doctors emerge and said to them: The service that they received was not service, but they experienced many alokik powers in their lives.  Through this, they have to experience even more deeper experiences in themselves.  Then Dadi remembered all the brothers and sisters of this land and abroad and specially all the brothers and sisters of all the places in Delhi.  Baba said: She was a Dadi of the world, she was loved by everyone and everyone’s love and remembrance has reached her.  Baba gave love and remembrance to everyone.  Then Baba said: The child is now with Baba.  Baba has had the child carry out special tasks and will continue to do so.  Bringing love and remembrance for everyone, I came back down below.

Sister Jayanti, 21st February, GCH - Contentment Brings Stability

24 February 2021

Baba has made gyan very simple. Baba has managed to teach those who didn’t know anything about the Indian scriptures in such a sweet simple way that the whole thing then made sense.  We were then able to even talk to other people about these matters and give them more insights than they already had.

 

The word “Om” in Bharat is so complicated and yet Baba made it very simple.  “I am”.   And then “Om shanti” - I am peace.  So simple…  When I heard about yoga from other people they would talk about complicated things that I was not interested in and Baba changed the whole subject with the one word “remembrance”.  He made it so natural and easy. 

 

Baba has explained dharna so easily and today Baba has explained the subject of service and made it very simple so that you can even think of it as something that is ongoing all day.  Baba said day and night, and Baba and Mama did that. Dadi Janki would speak about her dreams in the early days and sometimes speak of future service and sometimes she would dream of present service and even in her last period Hansaben and Deviben would laugh and say that when Dadi is asleep she makes the action with her hands as if she was picking up tolis and giving tolis and sometimes they would call her and say Dadi it is time and she would say I need 5 more minutes to finish my tolis and disappear for another 5 minutes.  So we can see that service can happen day and night and for some of us if it is all day, that is wonderful, but how to make service happen through the whole day so that all complaints stop, otherwise it is service that gets most complaints. “I didn’t get a chance, someone has more of a chance.”  Then all the games of the sanskaras.

 

Baba explains that service first and foremost is serving the self and if I serve myself then that will be the basis for me serving others. We forget this. The balance of remembrance all day and night is service that brings blessings so even if there is nothing else I can do,  if don’t have any skills or expertise I can work on myself.  So Baba has put that into the category of service. And there is world service and you have a lot of information about serving through words and then serving the yagya with your body and wealth and both are equal, using my skills and energy serving the yagya.  Fourth, we have heard complicated things about mansa seva and Baba has made it simple.  Baba has taken up the subject of sakaash with mansa seva and today Baba is simply saying you just have to have pure feelings, elevated thoughts, good wishes, good attitude and good vibration and now understanding it is simple and when doing it make sure that the quality of my thoughts, feelings and my attitude is elevated all the time is then the work to do on myself and mansa seva will work.  Whether my body is healthy or not and whether I have anything or I don’t, but each service has equal marks and so even if you focus on the two you can do, even if the body is not well you can still claim the highest reward.

 

In the blessing that Baba has given today is the biggest virtue of all and that is contentment.  Also, Baba said even if you become a great donor, thoughts, words, and actions - in the final period the highest service you will be able to do will be through your stage of contentment.  You are able to give blessings to others and this is then the memorial that continues in bhakti.  It is the ones who give blessings. 

 

Purity is the foundation.  It is really the original core quality of the soul and has its own part. 

 

No one is born with contentment.   We constantly see what others have and want to have the same.   This wanting is coming up all the time in so many different ways and when we come to Baba then Baba tells us that He gives us everything and how much we take and keep using.  How much do I keep it and stop it leaking away?  How much am I using and serving others with that so at each step along the way multiplication of that same quality that I can develop and develop as I use those treasures in my life that Baba has given me.

 

Am I using the treasure of time, the assets I have, connections I have but most importantly the treasures of knowledge, virtues, and powers and as I fill myself with these I can say what more do I need and most BKs have managed lockdown pretty well and those who haven’t are getting help from their centres.

 

There is that feeling of connectedness every morning and not just with Baba and Incorporeal Baba in the subtle region but also with the family.  A little family, a big family, so lockdown has not been so isolating as it has for so many people and we feel that sense of the family and the energy of the gathering and even through cyber-net, we are feeling that connection.

 

Where other people have missed going out for entertainment Baba made us renounce that a long time ago.  We weren’t made to renounce it.  We realised that our time was not to be wasted on those external things and we see that we do know that we have treasures but am I fully content within myself and appreciating all the treasures that Baba has given me already.  Baba didn’t say I am going to give you these when you go to Satyug, Baba says I gave them to you at your moment of birth.  Did you recognise them, did you use them?  

 

Why is contentment so important - it creates stability.  When there is discontentment the soul fluctuates.  Baba gave the example the other day of the bean jar and when the jar is full and you shake it nothing moves.  There is stability and if there is space there is movement and a jar that is almost empty, only a few beans, it makes so much noise. That is exactly what is happening with the soul.   The peacelessness and complaints that come when I haven’t filled the soul.   So if I the soul am not full, if I am complaining about anyone or anything it is important for me to see what am I not taking from Baba.  When I feel full and content then that is a stage when I can really make progress.  Also when there is a state of contentment there is not so much irritation.  When I am empty small things can trigger a lot of reaction.  Something very minor has happened and the amount of reaction is huge There is a straight line connection. Check this contentment and move forward with that.  If I can give others a state of peace they will have received a blessing.  When someone is not content a vibration around them makes others fearful and anxious.  Contentment creates a vibration of peace around you and this happens with the Dadis. 

 

This particular blessing is a reminder of the stage we need to attain in order to fulfil Baba’s task in this final period now.  To see how much am I progressing I only have to look at the murli.  What is the murli saying and what am I experiencing.  If there is a big gap I know how much work I need to do on myself and be able to catch up with that. 

 

Today, Baba picked up on two words “Yours” and “mine”.  Tera, mera.  When I come to Baba, Baba takes responsibility for me.  He is the parent and I am willing to hand over responsibility to Baba.  It is not easy to let go.  That is the challenge for everyone.  We don’t want to let go of responsibility and we are not throwing away responsibility but Baba is saying that He is responsible for you and for your task and if you keep that awareness and there is that surrender to God,  in that state you become very light.

 

In the state when it is yours and mine I am hanging on to that and I am not dealing with that very well and so to be able to be free and experience that state when everything is moving on in the right way because you know that Baba is responsible.  

 

Baba is speaking to a group and asking them how you can experience lightness.  At the moment of need in a particular situation we don’t always remember the lesson Baba has taught us.  If it is only at the time of need, a time of crisis, then at that moment I may not be able to remember because at that time it is whatever I am accustomed to.   Your habit kicks in.  You don’t consciously think do I do this or do I do this.  It doesn’t work like that and in a crisis whatever is inherent will come out and this is why when Baba says make sure you keep the stock of all the virtues, powers and be the embodiment of gyan that it is natural and that is what is in you and that is what will help at that time. And so to experience lightness even though there is constantly so much going on, lokik, alokik, especially what is going on in our heads and if I allow things to become natural during the day through my practise and discipline and that natural stage will help me at that time of an emergency and if I haven’t developed that during the day then I am going to fall flat on my face.

 

So each Murli has many different things for me to practise, to experiment with, especially the avyakt murli.  In the Sakar Murlis, we get Baba’s gyan and Brahma Baba’s experience and in avyakt murlis we get to know the effort that Brahma Baba made that brought him so quickly to his karmateet stage and so if I do the same then I am going to be able to achieve the same.

 

Also the subject of the treasures that Baba has given us.  Last Saturday we heard the Murli on the transmission and Baba said His children are the highest, holiest and richest in the world, reminding us of who we are. 

 

When we were sitting in front of avyakt Bapdada He would generate that energy and 25,000 people and other people watching outside but especially in that hall 25,000 people, would feel uplifted. 

 

Now we don’t have that physical presence any more but we have to create that stage of being in the awareness of being the highest, holiest, and richest because Baba is reminding us that is who we are so can I ever feel discontent if I only remember just these three words from Baba’s Murli?  The highest people in positions of power are sitting on a cushion full of thorns.  Many troubles, many problems.  Not just a crown of thorns but sitting on a cushion of thorns and it highly uncomfortable. 

 

We are the children of God and it is the highest title that anyone could ever get:  A child of God.  And it is equally available to everyone.  For the deities, it is numberwise but right now, when you come just to the awareness of a child of God, nothing to do with qualifications, effort, nothing to do with any work on our side but just simply the beauty and joy of being the child of God. 

 

And then the holiest.  At this moment on the one side, it is the soul that is becoming pure but on the other side, the soul is a server.  Mind, body, and soul are all pure and therefore worthy of worship.  But in fact, a holy place is where someone goes to experience solace when there is sorrow and so if my stage is that in which I am with Baba and in my presence, others are able to feel comfort and solace because people are experiencing many tragedies at present.  Things that would not normally be happening.

 

Each soul has its own part to play and if the soul is carrying good sanskaras with itself and experiencing the power of blessings in terms of the service that it has done, it is carrying that with it, it is not finished and so there is another place where that soul will go and serve. 

 

For us this is a simple idea because Baba’s gyan has taught us that.  When someone leaves, this is our immediate thought – they have gone to serve in the advance party, and whatever effort they have made they are carrying that with themselves.  They are carrying those sanskaras.  Very simple gyan, not complicated, but people out there don’t know this and so there are questions of why and how.  All of these batter them and they feel helpless and sad and then a little bit of explanation of what gyan has taught us and you can turn it around and they begin to appreciate it and understand in a better way and so the solace that Baba’s children are able to offer people especially at this time when people are so distressed and unhappy it is amazing service that is possible with just a little bit of gyan.

 

So the holiest, the place that can offer solace, the souls that can offer solace.  They come to you to take solace and just looking around and knowing who is watching and listening I know that to a certain extent everyone has had this experience.  Even people who maybe don’t want to know about God, with a little bit of gyan and they are able to come to a different awareness and come to a state of stability.  So definitely the holiest.  We are fulfilling that task that Baba has given us.

 

Then the third: the richest.  The story about Dadi Kumarka in the early days of the Yagya, Baba had an advert put in the newspapers in the late 30s - the early 40s and the offer was:   Do you want to marry the richest girl in the world? and there was a picture of Dadiji. Baba was very entertaining and this advert went around and phone calls came and Dadi asked Baba why he didn’t tell her and he asked: Would you have said yes? 

 

Baba did it because he knew her faith, loyalty and trust were absolute and so it was fine.   If you want to marry one of the richest girls in the world come to the Om Mandli is what Baba had put.  The feeling of contentment when you think about all the things that Baba gives us in one Murli. 

 

Enjoy being on top of the world and beyond the top of the world and be with Baba.

 

Om Shanti

Sister Jayanti – 6th February 21 - (UK Intensive) The legacy of Brahma Baba

15 February 2021

I chose this topic very specifically because it follows the month of January and most of you know that 18th January is the day when Brahma Baba attained his angelic form, in 1969. I had a good fortune of knowing him while he was still around and at that point I had been surrendered for about 9 months but before that I had known him for many years.

 

One of the things that Brahma Baba would always say is that don’t think about me, just think about God, the Incorporeal one. And that is absolutely vital and that is the foundation of spirituality in our life to stay connected with God. Even in the murli Brahma Baba would even say: I don’t give you any inheritance; all the inheritance comes from your Parent; I am one of your brothers, I am also a student.

 

But of course that was his tremendous humility, which he displayed at all times. He never thought of himself as a guru or being in charge. He always said that it was the One above who is in charge. I am just an instrument. Everything you receive is coming from the One so connect with the One. Yet those who knew Brahma Baba and loved him took so much benefit from Baba. They didn’t just take the teachings that Shiv Baba, the Almighty was giving through the murli, but they also took a lot through the practical example of Brahma Baba’s life. But that was all kept incognito, because Baba wanted all attention on the One, which is right.

 

After Brahma Baba left the physical form and took on his angelic form, the avyakt form then both BapDada would come through Dadi Gulzar, the trance messenger and they would speak the murli together.But sometimes Shiv Baba would point out the qualities of Brahma Baba and how he had attained his final state of perfection, the angelic state and what were the qualities that allowed him to do that.

 

Just imagine we are all moving on the same path; we are all moving from the impure state to the perfect pure state at different point of our journey, but Brahma Baba attained his absolute perfect state in 1969 and here we are, 51 years later. Even those who started the journey with him, most of them gradually attained their state of completion and perfection some years later. They also had a longer role to play here, on the world stage, for many different reasons. But this is just an indication of the quality of Brahma Baba’s effort of what he attained in a very short space of time of 33 years.

 

If you were to make a list of all the qualities of Brahma Baba there would definitely be a few hundred! Honesty, benevolence, generosity, patience, these are just the few, which I am not going to take up in detail. But I would like to take up 5 different aspects of Brahma Baba in a little bit more detail. And all the virtues of Brahma Baba are his legacy to us. This is because Shiv Baba explained the theory but we saw Brahma Baba do it in practical form.

 

Even if you did not have the fortune of seeing Brahma Baba in a human form, yet from the murlis and from all the stories that you have heard, especially through the month of January,  you must have become aware that “this human being”, demonstrated all these qualities. And so you were able to understand that love wasn’t just the love of God and love from God, the ocean of love, but Brahma Baba absorbed this love within himself and was able to radiate it and share it with everyone.

 

I will speak about these 5 different aspects of Brahma Baba for a little while and then we will have a few minutes to take that legacy into ourselves. Actually we are able to take everything by connecting with God; there is no doubt about that, but seeing how Brahma Baba managed everything in his own life, we are able to take it in a way that is very human, because he is a human being who is demonstrating all of his.

  1. The first and foremost quality of Brahma Baba was the quality of faith.
  2. The second quality is of the quality of love.
  3. The third aspect is the quality of renunciation
  4. The next one is the quality of his intense meditation; tapasya. Tap implies fire, heat and so that state of meditation is like the fire of love, fire of yoga.
  5. The fifth one is the quality of service.

 

There are so many other qualities which are Baba’s legacy to us. He is allowing us to follow in his footsteps so that we can become the same as he is. He wants us to and he is reaching out to us; he wants us to get there. We may lose hope but he says: come on child, get up again and start walking and start flying. So he is with us and is helping us all along

 

So, the first one is faith.

There are two qualities, in the Gita that has been listed as being the qualities that lead you to victory. And victory is nothing to do with anybody else. Victory is that state in which, ‘I change my habits’ and ‘I begin to change’. That is victory!

 

It is in little things…maybe I say: “I am going to be more punctual”; “I am going to be on time”, whether it is for early morning meditation or for class but I am going to have that determination and Baba will help me. Baba was always very punctual himself. These are many little things in which in our day to day life, where you can tick the boxes and say done. And so you are able to have little victories.

 

But you also want to have big victories!  The traits of personalities that I carry within me are seated very deep within me and I want to change and transform those sanskaras and become a few steps closer to the father. Maybe it is attachments or maybe it is ego, whatever it is, but when I have been able to deal with that then I can smile at Baba and say: “thank you”, for leading me to victory.

  1. The first quality mentioned in the Gita that allows us to come to that state of victory is faith; “nishchay buddhi vijayanti”- “faith in the intellect will make you victorious”.
  2. And the second quality is the love; “prit buddhi vijayanti”- “the loving intellect will lead you to victory”.  

Both these aspects take up the word “buddhi”, the intellect. It means that faith is not a blind faith. Sometimes they say that “love is blind”, but in this case, it is not just “blind love of infatuation”, no. But it is faith that is deeply experienced because I understand what is going on. And through the power of understanding and experiencing it I am able to develop this strong faith that keeps me moving forward, knowing that even though maybe I am not able to see what the next step is going to be, but my faith in God, my faith in myself and my faith in the drama will help me to get there and there will be victory.

 

Again love is not just an emotional or touchy-type of feeling, but it is a deep love that cannot shake. There is nothing that can take away the love that is absolutely stable because I have experienced the Ocean of love and I know how that love has transformed me

 

And so let us begin with the power of faith. Some of you may have heard today’s Murli and so just think about it. Brahma Baba’s faith was incredible. And yes, he had a very solid preparation for that. Brahma Baba went through the series of having 12 gurus and they could see that this individual thirsty for truth and they would explain as much as they could and then they would step away. When he started having visions of light and he saw God as a Being of Light, Dada Lekhraj – (that was Baba’s previous name) asked his gurus to explain, but they couldn’t and so they said to him: “you will discover”- which Brahma Baba did.

 

And he understood it was the form of God that he had seen and he stayed connected with that Being, through the whole of the journey for the next 33 years. And so of course there was the subtle connection before but that was without clarity and without that full understanding and comprehension. So the buddhi, the intellect was very involved: “how come I used to think like this before and now I am seeing this and now I am feeling something different. Now I am feeling that connection. I am feeling I am connected with the Ocean, who can give me all that I need. The intellect was definitely involved but first and foremost he had faith in God.

 

Then he had the vision of Vishnu, the four-armed figure, the symbol of perfection. He used to actually worship the image of Vishnu and also of the two forms of Lakshmi and Narayan, that he spoke about in today’s Murli.   I felt today’s Murli was a preparation for me now, and that constantly happens. You couldn’t organise it, I couldn’t have told people in Madhuban earlier that this is the Murli that I want you to circulate for today and three months ago I didn’t even know I would be speaking on this topic to all of you. But it happened.  There is a synchronicity within the drama and you have faith in the drama then you know that things are going to work out and in the right way at the right time in the best way possible. And so today’s Murli was the best way possible; perfect.

 

In the Murli Baba was talking about how he saw Lakshmi and Narayan as being equal; equality for male and female.  But that vision of Vishnu that he had and the words that he heard was: “you are him” - “tat-tvam-asi”. Baba was puzzled because he thought  Vishnu was God and he had a different vision. And now things were changing; things were topsy turvy. So it took him a while to assimilate all of this with his intellect but also with his experience and his feelings that he was having and something was triggered within the soul of a past memory. A past memory was being touched and had been awakened through that vision. We don’t need visions to be able to have that but we can just simply understand the knowledge and through the opening of the inner eye of wisdom –the divine intellect, we can reach the same.

 

But Baba was a pioneer. There was nobody he could to turn to; there was nobody he could ask or tell him what is going on. He just had to figure it out himself and know that it was God who was guiding him. It was not his imagination; it was not anything mystical that somebody was pushing on him, no; it was truly the One above who was guiding him and explaining to him.

 

Just imagine the quality of such faith…there is no one in front of you and you look behind and suddenly there are a few 100 people following you and you are carrying the responsibility and then, on the other hand, there are people who are turning against you because they don’t want their women folks to become free or to go off in another direction that they don’t understand.

 

And it was just a tip of an iceberg! Many things were happening but Baba’s faith from the very first moment: “this is God and this is His task is of establishing a New World and He is asking me to help Him in that task.

 

(It could have been the mad side of my personality emerging going through all these ideas that has nothing to do with reality). But no, within his awareness, within his heart and talking to the One above, he knew that this was the truth.

 

So let us have a few minutes of meditation on that capacity to be able to clear my intellect and recognise that this is the truth.

Going deep inside I connect with myself …the living being …the being of light …this is I the soul …do I believe this…my intellect tells me did anyone tell you exactly what a soul is…did anyone point out… how the power of the soul works …or what the faculties of the soul are… how the record within the soul is recorded… did anyone tell you that you are peace… you are light… you are love …you are truth …and had you ever experienced this before…

 

And so my intellect confirms that these are truly the teachings that have come from God. No one could have told me any of these things; I looked I searched –but only the One above has been able to tell me…and with the awareness of the soul …I begin to connect with God the Supreme Soul the Being of light… holding this awareness I come back and become aware of the things around me… and the need of this moment …but now with the deeper awareness of the self and faith in who I am… and faith in the One who has told me all this…

 

And so my intellect confirms that these are truly the teachings that have come from God. No one could have told me any of these things; I looked I searched –but only the One above has been able to tell me…and with the awareness of the soul …I begin to connect with God the Supreme Soul the Being of light… holding this awareness I come back and become aware of the things around me… and the need of this moment …but now with the deeper awareness of the self and faith in who I am… and faith in the One who has told me all this…

 

Does faith come overnight? It did for Brahma Baba. But I claim the legacy of faith from Baba and see how he went through all the obstacles that he had to face, but with the power of faith, he was able to remain stable and unshakeable. I take that gift – the legacy - the inheritance from Baba for myself.

 

The second legacy from Baba is of love.

 

Love is also in the intellect, not just in the mind not just the feelings and emotions but there is a big difference. When there are just feelings of love it could be temporary; it could be fleeting. Pure positive feelings are fleeting; they come and they go very swiftly and they are very subtle and so you can’t hold on to it, they disappear quickly.

 

But something deeper than just a feeling is that sense of total belonging, in which I know that God the Supreme Being, the One with whom I have all relationships and all connections is the One I belong to and He belongs to me. That is it! That is the relationships and connection forever; it is for eternity.

 

And so Brahma Baba experienced this pure love from God and it awoke the experience of his love for God, which had been very powerful even before he understood these things. And so his search for God and his search for truth were absolutely tireless. This was his mission, his purpose.

 

Everything else that he was doing, the jewellery business and the family work, all of those things carried on. But he would want solitude early in the morning from 4 am until 10 o’clock in the morning or he would sit in prayer gathering and leading prayer gathering. But his purpose was to find the truth and to find God.

 

So when he had this vision, then it gradually became clear this was the form of God; it was the experience of absolutely finding the One Beloved and his life changed dramatically as a consequence. There was a total transformation in his life but also the inspiration to serve in an unlimited way. And the power of that love carried him through the dishonour, the defamation, the insults that were coming to him because people were seeing something new happening which was beyond their control. And if you are a control freak or even if you are not, you know how if I control things and I see things slipping out of my grasp then I get agitated and I want things to come back into my grasp. And so those were the primordial feelings and emotions that were being raised within the community. “What is going on?” But Brahma Baba’s love carried him through to all of that. There were court cases against him but yet that love kept him steady and immoveable and unshakable There was nothing that could change that faith and nothing could change that love because he was receiving the love of the Ocean and he surrendered himself to that Ocean the Being who was the Divine.

 

As soon as everything started and people started to come, he didn’t understand but he had faith and love and so he began to see everyone as belonging to him  Love gives a sense of belonging in a way that nothing else can!

 

So the love that he experienced and the love that he became the channel for, he was able to share that with all and that radiated from his eyes and from his words and through his actions.  He accepted everyone. He accepted even the ones who didn’t come to him and even the ones who defamed him; he had one sentence for them: “they know not what they are saying – they know not what they are doing”. And so the loving heart is able to accept everything. No recrimination - no accusation - no conditionality and no judgement – just acceptance.

 

When 300 + people suddenly turned up at his doorstep in Karachi - he didn’t tell them I am going to Karachi - but the power of love touched them and they came. And with his generosity and spirit of love, he arranged accommodation for all of them. He didn’t say: go back I can’t look after you. But he accepted them and he made arrangements to rent 7 different houses for them to stay.

 

Again the love, Baba arranged 15 – 16 years old to become the teachers and teach 9, 10, and 11 years old.  and he would visit them in the morning and at night and he would give them special treats! Dadi Gulzar had shared something very beautiful. She said Baba and spiritual mother mama would come to visit us in the morning and evening and they would treat us like we were little gods and goddesses- little Thakurs. When you have a shrine in your room- they have little Thakurs, the idols and people worship them.

 

Dadi Gulzar said Baba and Mama treated us like little thakurs (little images)  – they treated us with so much respect and love as if they were worshipping us! Any new fresh fruit that came in the season, the children were the first to get that.

 

Whatever it was Baba’s love was immense. I also experienced that in a very beautiful way when I first met Baba in 1957…it was a magnetic charisma that was just powerful love and I experienced that further on through my life also again and again…

 

And even today what is it that gives me strength; it is love from not the incorporeal One but the love from BapDada. And so the power of love - yes truly God is the Ocean but this individual was able to capture the ocean and allow it to flow through him and in the process, he was transformed so he became Master Ocean of love also.

 

And so when you remember BapDada then you remember the love and the sweetness with which Baba taught everyone. Baba’s strength and purpose and spiritual power and authority was always with love

 

And so when Baba would look at every d soul Baba would see the original goodness of every soul. And Baba would also see their future and Baba would talk about their future. Baba would see potential and qualities of the soul that nobody else saw. And Baba would say this child is going to do amazing things. This child is going to serve the world. And it was true everyone who heard those words were inspired and empowered and began to change and do the amazing things that Baba was talking about.

 

Baba is serving tirelessly from the subtle region for 51 years and more to go…and it was pure love that allowed him to move into the subtle dimension and to continue to stay there and serve all over the world. So the angel Brahma became the one who started centres abroad - sustains the souls who live far away from Madhuban, the pilgrimage place which gives us so much strength. Angel Brahma is with us and is not only supporting us but he is guiding us and continues to lead us together with the One above

 

So that love allows me to cross all boundaries. It didn’t matter whether you were young or old Baba’s love was there for you. It didn’t matter if you were of one particular racial background or another or one particular religion or another or what your social standard was… for Baba whoever came in front of him, Baba would call them: “child” even when – government officials would come and Baba would give them such drishti – (the vision of soul consciousness and God-consciousness) and Baba would call them: “child” and they would melt because it was not a word but Baba said that from his heart. Baba’s vision for everyone changed overnight.

 

And so the legacy of love is to be able to absorb from God but learn from Brahma Baba and take from Brahma Baba how he behaved with every individual but also how he has the love for the whole world. Baba would stay awake at night sharing good vibrations with the world so that souls would awaken from the slumber of ignorance and come to the awareness of spirituality and God.

 

I can’t even count the number of people who through the years have told me, how they have had a vision of Brahma Baba. A few people in a critical situation who were about to leave their body had shared how they saw that figure in white coming to them and just simply giving them love and power – and when they recovered theyasked to see that doctor that they had seen and they couldn’t find him. So they thought maybe it was a dream. But it was a vision and Baba had come to them but they didn’t know until they saw the picture of Baba that they said, “that was the man who came to me and helped at my time of need.”

 

 And so Baba’s love is for all souls and that love is touching souls and guiding souls and helping souls through their journey so that they would come finally to God and recognise God through that instrument. And so Baba’s power of love and how he transmitted that love to all of us and how that love has changed us and how today all of us can be instruments to share that love when we take that legacy from Brahma.

 

The third aspect is the quality of renunciation.

 

The big one is the total and complete renunciation of ego. It is the one that most of us have the most difficulty in dealing with it, but for Brahma Baba, it happened. Again I attributed to the fact that the preparation that Baba had made prior to Shiv Baba taking him as an instrument and using that instrument was incredible.

 

The touchings must be coming from above and so Baba was teaching himself and training himself and he was more and more aware of the inner being without knowing the detail. But he became more and more aware that there is something separate to this body. And so he was able to renounce that ego and surrendered all his assets to the young women who did not even have bank accounts. The instruction came from above that you have to have them in charge and so he readily surrendered all his assets to the foundation that he set up to these young women. How could he let go of that ego? “I know better” – “they don’t know” ”they are young girls they have no bank accounts or experience”…But the instruction came you have to surrender everything to them and he did it instantly. And so from the very beginning, the reason why he became the instrument is because it was thepreparation and destiny of his role. But he was able to let go of ego instantly.

 

And so the renunciation of that consciousness of “I” and “mine” and not just of his physical assets which even his relationship with his wife and his children – and then a few years later he stayed with them – he spoke to them and they agreed but a little bit later the son said he wanted to go and create his fortune out in the world and the other one said I want to get married but he let them go…He didn’t control or hold on to them;  whatever is your destiny, create it for yourself.

 

And so the renunciation of I and mine was very powerful…he let go of his business, let go of his assets, let go of that ownership of family. He, loving towards them and was responsible for them and taking care of them but let go of that internally. He did n let go of his responsibility for the ones who were there now but now his family is a large one, more than anyone could ever imagine and he cared for them and looked after them.

 

And after they moved to Abu that stage of renunciation in which, things that had been surrendered had now been used to bring 350 members (by then it was 350) across from Karachi – after the partition - to Okha Harbour in Gujarat - they hired a whole ship and then from Okha Harbour they hired a whole train to bring them to Abu Road and then up the mountains to the top of the mountain to this very special summer palace of one of the kings – Brij Koti and they settled there.  

 

From sea level in Karachi - now they were up on the mountains and across the world there was a shortage of food –I am talking about May 1950. And as time went on there were shortages of food everywhere and Baba was trying to feed the big family.

 

There is a photograph that Dadi Janki used to look at and it showed Baba in shorts. They were going for a walk on the mountains and Baba made them exercise – and so in picture Baba is carrying this long stick and Baba’s legs were very skinny and Dadi said Baba would eat last because Baba would make sure, everybody had something and then Baba would say: now I can eat.

 

And there was a renunciation to the nth degree – renunciation of comforts, facilities, food for the sake of the children.

 

Then things began to change but until the end of his physical days, Baba stayed in a small room which is now Baba’s room in Madhuban. But at that time that room was one quarter of the size of that room that is today.

 

That original cottage in Pandav Bhavan – all the other buildings were gradually built later on – by 60’s the History Hall and the rooms above the History hall were ready and other buildings were also ready, but Baba said Baba is going to stay here; that is for the children.

 

And so think about the walls of the stable - it was that thin and so the heat and more so the cold - in Abu in those days used to get freezing temperatures at winter times and the water would freeze but Baba stayed in the stable. Baba would laugh and say this chariot is an old one and so this chariot can stay in the old cottage. Shiv Baba doesn’t want a young chariot or a new house –no, this is fine. And so that was total renunciation.

 

These are some of the external aspects of renunciation, but the inner level of renunciation is also amazing. Baba let go of attachments, desire, fame, fortune –he gave away fortune he wasn’t going to create another fortune for himself; he let go of fame, he had had that all around by all the kings as “this person who knew about jewels and created jewellery” and so he didn’t need fame. If he wanted fame he wanted children on this path; if he wanted popularity he wouldn’t have talked about purity. That would be the last subject he would have talked about

 

So none of those things mattered but what mattered was his connection with the Divine and also his love for the family; his immediate family that was with him and when they went out on service the extended family, but also the family of the world.

 

Baba gave away a bullock cartload of coal to a convent school – (long story but another time for that) there was no coal in the village and there was no hot water for bathing girls in the boarding school and so nuns had come to ask for coal and so Baba gave a bullock cartload of coal to them and they said “how much does it cost?” and Baba said: they are my children. He didn’t know those girls – and nuns belonged to a different religion but that didn’t matter, Baba wanted nothing but the renunciation of attachment to a few and love for all and love for service Let all of them be served so that they can come close to God That spirit of renunciation was incredibly powerful.

 

Let us take a moment …

 

With faith and love I come to that being who is the Supreme… the Highest on High Shiv Baba …the Being of light.. …and from Shiv Baba I receive love… spiritual power …and joy …and the power of these this …allows me to let go to let go of I and mine …because all that I need …and all that I want… come from the One.

 

I see the angel Brahma… and I see his renunciation …and how that has made him an angel …and I say to Brahma Baba …thank you …for showing me the way to follow in your footsteps… and let go of everything here and be able to fly up above….I come back here and now I look at the other aspects of legacy that Baba has given me of faith… love… renunciation and all that lead through Baba’s incredible tapasya

 

Baba’s tapasya has been huge.

 

Tapasya, intense meditation was for the self to settle all karma from the past and to have the power to not be influenced or impacted by the things around so that there was no karma being created at all. For us we fall, we learn, we stand up, and move forward. But for Baba, once Shiv Baba adopted him and he belonged to Shiv Baba he just performed good karma - and nothing else at all

 

 The power of tapasya settled the things of the past very quickly and the power of tapasya insured that every step from that moment on was one of good karma; nothing else except good karma. And so in a way, tapasya and seva come together. Let me take them up together because the good karma that Baba did, it showed us what we have to do; that is part of the legacy. And the service that he did showed us the consciousness with which to serve; altruistically and unselfishly.

 

 Brahma Baba did tapasya was first with the self but also his tapasya was to keep everyone safe by creating a fort of the power of silence and of power of love that would protect everyone. And so yes it was the individuals who were there in Karachi in the days of the partition war but of course, Baba would take the lead all night meditation - all-day meditation; Baba was the embodiment of meditation. Baba would wake up at 2 o’clock in the morning - they would see a little light in Baba’s room around that time and they would know that Baba is up in meditation Baba’s meditation was for protecting everyone.Baba’s meditation was to reach out into the world and share those vibrations.Baba’s meditation was also to give help to souls in need, souls who deserved that special help. And we know from the Murli that Baba gave different help to different individuals at different times through the power of meditation.

 

So that tapasya was not just for one or for a few but that tapasya was the power that reached out everywhere. When Baba was walking, you could feel that Shiv Baba and Brahma Baba were walking together. We had a good fortune for having picnics with Baba having meals with Baba and Baba would pause and say: “child who are you remembering?”  And he would remind us because it is so easy to get distracted. Whilst playing badminton, Baba would pause and say: “do you know who you are playing with?”By asking questions there would be a reminder.

 

Whilst giving drishti you could feel that Shiv Baba and Brahma Baba both were together So it was Brahma Baba’s practice of soul consciousness and seeing everyone as a soul – no discrimination - but also Brahma Baba was learning to keep Shiv Baba with himself more and more…and so there was no difference- both of them was together.

 

In 1968 for a few months, in April, May and June, Baba would be conducting 4 o’clock meditation and people would feel the power of that silence reaching out…and Dadi Janki would say that it was as if Baba was reaching her…and afterwards Baba confirmed that he was remembering her and sending her that light. So Baba’s meditation was so powerful that when Baba remembered somebody to give them help, they would feel it.

 

So meditation was extremely powerful – but even whilst listening to Murli you would feel Shiv Baba as the Teacher was very official and very present But even when Brahma Baba was talking to the group then again you would feel both Brahma Baba and Shiv Baba together with you. Ask Baba a question and Baba would pause and invoke Shiv Baba and then give you a response.

 

So when Baba was walking, talking, eating or playing Shiv Baba was with Brahma Baba because Brahma Baba was remembering Shiv Baba and invoking Shiv Baba to come and you could feel the presence of Shiv Baba.

 

So real tapasya is not just when I am sitting down for meditation for half an hour, but tapasya is when there is that internal connection with the One above that is constantly alive – constantly engaged, so that you are with Baba And so the tapasya that Baba did is again the legacy for all of us.

 

Tapasya was also service

 

Today we would say we have four subjects; 1) gyan, knowledge; 2) yoga, meditation; 3) practical life, the application; 4) service. For Baba, all four subjects were merged together. The knowledge was not separate from the yoga; knowledge and yoga informed the practical life, the practical application at every step; there was no moment of unawareness but there was constant awareness and that is what did the service, whatever it is that Baba was doing, was service. n the early days in Abu, Baba actually engaged in service of doing laundry.

 

And one person came with bad intention in front, and Baba just gave him drishti –(that vision of soul consciousness in God’s remembrance) -  and the man fell on his knees and asked Baba for forgiveness because he had come with the intention to kill and he couldn’t…he had a vision of Baba.

 

 So whatever you do on the external physical level, whether it is the laundry or cooking or cleaning or today whether it is typing on the computer…whatever it is… Brahma Baba demonstrated how it is possible to be in yoga at the same time. Yes, I acknowledge that there are things that require a 100% focus of your intellect, but as soon as you have done that, come back and be in that state of yoga.

 

And Baba describes his efforts of this in the Murli - so we know it was not automatic and it just happened– it didn’t just happen, but Baba made it happen. In the Murli, Baba describes how he starts eating and at that point, the remembrance slips away and so Baba says: ‘hold on, let me come back again. And so Baba made incognito effort, we never saw it as labour, but there was that constant attention and awareness And so the legacy from Baba – can I have yoga because of my love, because of my desire to be with God all the time? Baba’s deep desire was only to be with Shiv Baba and let everybody know who Shiv Baba is so that they can experience that love

 

And so today, I ask myself: what is the quality of my tapasya? Can I keep Shiv Baba with me all the time in the way Brahma Baba  Did?

 

On the one side we would say that Shiv Baba was with Brahma Baba all the time – true, but also Brahma Baba carried a big load of responsibility and yet Baba would be so light and Baba would be smiling and Baba would move with such dignity and grace that the responsibility was not the burden – it wasn’t heavy.  It was God’s task and he was the instrument and so he never felt it to be a burden.

 

When service becomes a burden, I have forgotten that it is Baba in charge. If I stay with Baba in that same state of tapasya then my tapasya and service go together hand in hand – not separate. And so my tapasya gives power to my service and my service brings me closer to God and so allows that tapasya to be even more powerful. Baba demonstrated this all the time.

 

So often we hear people say: “I have to just let go of everything and focus on tapasya”.Well, there is something that I quite haven't understood there, because if my tapasya can only happen at the expense of not engaged in activity and service, then yes the soul will be purified but what about the power of good karma? That space would be vacant and so where will I be? I will be up there in the soul world; I won’t be down here with Brahma Baba enjoying the beauty and the joy of the world of the golden age.

 

So let me do tapasya and service together. And when I have learnt to do that then I will reach the stage of perfection. If I do service on its own then there will be ego! If I do tapasya on its own, then I won’t be able to do the good karma that I need to do. And so I need to have the perfect balance of both together And when I have learnt to do that then when I see Brahma Baba then I will say: now I know how to follow in your footsteps and claim my legacy from you.

 

Let us have few minutes to reflect on this and then we will take a short break.

 

I see Brahma Baba sitting in a semi lotus posture… in my mind’s eye …and the light that is radiating is Shiv Baba’s light… Brahma Baba’s connection with Shiv Baba is total …absolute… and light radiates all around… not just here… but far and wide across the globe…and God’s light serves the world…the highest service through the mind… mansa seva …and God’s light touches human hearts… so that they open their hearts to God’s love … God’s light …ignites hope…and souls begin to see… the future… in which there is light… hope has removed the darkness… and they begin to move to the light…  Baba’s tapasya and Baba’s service both are combined …and seeing Baba… I take this as my legacy …to serve through my mind… and to continue to serve through my mind…even if I serve through words …and even if I serve through actions…

 

I come back to the awareness of everything here, but now I am aware that just like Baba, I have to combine tapasya and service, so that service can be unlimited, incognito, but very real, bringing souls to God.

 

Om Shanti

31 January 2021 - Bhog Message brought by Sr Mohini

 

Taking everyone’s love and remembrances, I went to offer bhog to Baba. Today it was a beautiful scene in the subtle regions.  It was unlimited.  There was a large number of flowers in front of Baba, which was such a beautiful scene.  Generally, we will see flowers with the plants, but today it was only beautiful flowers, and Baba was looking at this beautiful garden of flowers.  The face of each one of you was like a beautiful flower, very colorful and blossomed.  Baba was first seeing from above, and then He was walking in between among the flowers, sharing drishti, looking at everyone with a lot of love.  I also was sharing drishti with Baba.  I said, ‘Baba do you see all the flowers?  Are you seeing them, or are you feeling something?” 

 

Baba smiled and asked, “What do you feel?’” I said, “I feel love and that through your drishti you are filling and doing something to each one of us.”  Baba said, “That’s what I do: I look at each child, and through drishti, I give something to each child, and today, Baba is especially giving a lot of light to each child.  Because light is important for each flower.”  So, then Baba was looking at me and said, “What do you do when you share drishti?”  I said, “In soul consciousness, I think of you, and I know that you will give.”

 

Baba said, “You all have to remember that we are not looking at what someone is at this moment, but just sharing love, light, and power. Why don’t you all look at each other now and share Baba’s love and light.” And I said, “But Baba now you are here.”  But Baba said, “Still look at everyone as a beautiful flower.” I don’t know how to explain it to you all, but it was like a moving garden as if each flower faced another flower and looked at each other.

 

The color of each flower is each one’s specialty.  Each one is unique and special, a different color and variety, and you like each one. You don’t say “red is better or white is better” but in the subtle region it wasn’t red and white.  Everything was golden. Every flower has a different fragrance, so Baba said that the fragrance in each one is of purity.  As much as there is purity, the fragrance smells very sweet.  So, this sweetness of the fragrance should be the quality of your drishti for each other now.

 

Then Baba said that outside in the world there is a lot of tension and fear, but children are free from tension and fear.  Children are fearless and loveleen.  Because when you are merged in Baba’s love there is no fear.  So, remain loveleen and free from any effect of the outside world of kaliyug.

 

Then Baba said, “In the month of January each one of you had the aim to be Bap samaan, to become complete and perfect.  So, congratulations to the children, because the children had the very sincere aim to be Bap samaan and have made good effort.  Now is the time to give the finishing touch.

 

“For the finishing touch, you have to be very stable and also very subtle, very avyakt.  Minute details are very subtle.  So now you have to see what subtle aspects are still there to be transformed or decorated. The protection of each child is that no one, nothing, can touch you.”

 

You say, “I have to follow the footsteps of Brahma Baba, and Brahma Baba took every step by following shrimat.  So, all your thoughts, words, actions, and relationships should now be based on shrimat.  Some children may not be sure what shrimat is, so have a discussion among yourselves and go into details of what shrimat is for thoughts, words, and actions.  Talk about not only his sanskars, but what he thought; what he spoke and his relationships with everyone.  This will help you to be complete and perfect.

 

When we came back into our original form, Baba gave drishti to everyone with a lot of love, which made every child very blossomed and happy.  Baba said, “Stay loveleen.”  And I brought remembrances for each one of you.  Om Shanti.

Sister Jayanti, 31st January, Detachment  & Purity

9 February 2021

Om Shanti. Good morning.

 

We have had two powerful Murlis.  The transmission from Madhuban and again this morning Baba’s revised Avyakt Murli is very powerful.  I am seeing there is a question many have. ‘How to’ questions which Dadi Janki would refuse to acknowledge because Baba tells us ‘how to’ in every Murli.  When He gives a direction, He also gives us the method to apply it.  Maybe 10 years ago people were telling me that the fastest-selling books were the ‘How to’ books...from the simple to complicated things…Baba’s Murli is a ‘How to Manual’.  Now the books most popular out there are about meditation!

 

I want to pick up on the ‘How to’ that Baba has explained through these two Murlis.  In today’s Murli Baba is talking about ‘check and change’.  This is a great expression and He uses the English words, originally used in the 1980s.  Yesterday’s Murli is 2008 and today is from 1987.  We then started to use this expression for Youth programmes much later.  Baba makes a very interesting comment.  If when we check we see something in the self, then change it immediately: otherwise the soul weakens and the time has gone.  If I don’t see (recognise), that is a separate story.  But if when I check and I see it is not what Baba expects from me or what I want for myself, and I allow it to continue, I will become weaker. With courage and strength today, Baba is available and Drama is with me.  At the moment I realise, I have the power to change…and time gives me a push and helps me change at that moment.

 

I remember Nizarbhai mentioned to me when he saw in both Serve Africa and Future of Power the first year of both was magic.  Everything happened so fast and many were served - 48 countries in Africa in one year, with hands for all these countries…everyone helped and it just happened!  Then there were a few countries we hadn’t reached and it became hard work.  It was as though at first Baba’s special drishti was on that land and it all happened fast and easily.  The same thing with FoP: Baba gave blessings and told us to put a time limit to it.  At first, Nizarbhai thought one year, and throughout that time it was fast and later more effort was required.  There is a time for everything and Baba’s help is available at that moment.  Otherwise, we lose impetus and strength and it will take much more effort to make things happen.  Baba’s help is still available and He says it is not ‘too late’ at the moment.  So check and change.  Baba spoke about how to have success in something, using the words ‘Nirman’- humility, and ‘Nimit’- being an instrument.  Where there is the thought: ‘I can do it’, Baba will say – go ahead, try and see what you can do.  However, if I say I am an instrument, it’s Baba’s task and Baba has to make it happen, then whatever effort in thoughts and time is my fortune.  If I am looking for instant results it might not happen.  It may take years before a see that has been planted to bear fruit.  There is no use poking or disturbing it, and asking why isn’t it growing!  However just keep on with it, doing service tirelessly.  This discipline, principle, and practise is good for the soul.  Also, we don’t know what seeds are going to take root.  With humility and awareness we recognise it is Baba’s seva; serving with ‘our bones’, our love, and the fruits will come when it is time, in the right season.  If you pick fruits that have been nurtured through artificial means they don’t taste the same.

 

There is the reality in any task in service that it is the cooperation of a whole team that makes it happen.  It can never be one individual.  There is a time for everything…When the big conferences were happening in Madhuban in 1984/5 a group of seniors spoke to Baba and told him that the village was not supporting us as there was a lot of jealousy because well-known people were coming to the Brahma Kumaris.   Baba said to serve the village people with a lot of love and humility and also all the souls that come to help, those who prepare the stage, those who cook and clean, etc.  He said if these tasks are not all done with love then the results won’t come.  For if what the guests witness whilst moving around is not congruent with what is spoken on stage, what would they think. It’s just words like everywhere else.  Everyone contributes with their love and cooperation and has an impact in service. Baba related the story of the King who had no attachment, whose son dies whilst out hunting, and when someone meets the Queen and all the subjects they see that they have the same detachment so he is a true king. Why this story?  Everyone’s role is essential.  This creates the culture, atmosphere, and success in service.  Whatever I am an instrument for that is my fortune. The atmosphere of love and cooperation comes where there is humility and the awareness of being an instrument and this brings success.

 

We know these things and so how come we are not doing it? Today, Baba talks about 4 ways of detachment.  The secret of coming to the stage of detachment doesn’t have a short cut….it is practise. This is the only way.  The first step is detachment from the body.  Baba is saying let this become completely natural.  Before we had no idea of being the soul and just thought of the body in our thoughts and dreams.  Can we turn this around so that the soul state becomes natural?  We have had 2,500 years to develop the body as ‘natural’ and we don’t have that much time to make the switch back.  Yet on our side, this is real and that was not.  Also. soul consciousness brings happiness. Body consciousness kept bringing us sorrow.  When we are soul aware there is the experience of lightness, joy. and the experience of Baba’s love, which has the greatest benefit.  This is the question most ask.  How do I experience Baba’s love?  Baba has one word ‘nyara’ detached and then ‘pyara’- loved by God and by others. 

 

What fascinated me today was Baba spent little time talking about detachment from the body. I think because He explains soul consciousness again and again in the Sakar Murlis.  The Dadi’s would say that in the early days, Baba’s practise with everyone was simply soul consciousness.  Detach, detach, detach from the body, bodily relatives, facilities, and sanskars.  They thought Baba was God and they didn’t know Shiv Baba and Brahma Baba were different, that came later.  So what was their yoga?  It was detachment.  I the soul am detached.  What was their practise for all the days of silence for so many days Shiv Baba gave instructions for?   The same.  Can I see you as a soul and act from being a soul. Can I be detached regarding all those I have left behind and have no waste thoughts about them? Baba says if we practise this then we will be able to manage the later scenes that are going to come. 

 

In the 1980s there were water shortages, (as there was no movement of water using boreholes, etc).  We would have to cut down and manage with a small amount for washing and cooking etc.  Baba was asking how well did we manage in our stage with this.   Baba also talked about fire and what if this too became unavailable would we be ok?  So look within and see what it is I am dependent on. In this long paragraph, Baba elaborated on detachment from possessions and facilities.   He encouraged us to think about if each comfort or facility was removed how would we feel?  Baba says experiment and explained how they did this by eating only chapati and buttermilk for two weeks to test themselves.  And they did.   Baba said the reason why they were able to manage was everyone knew it was Baba’s direction and due to their love they wanted to follow it.   

 

Dependence on external things is a big subject!   Maybe It is not so much about ‘need’ but what does happen often is ‘so and so has this so why should I not have the same’.  This becomes a big maya.  How many waste thoughts!  Baba says if we are busy looking at what others have or are doing, we don’t have time to look at the self.  Forget what others are doing that is their business, karma, and story.  Can I be free from these dependencies?  Can I experiment with what Baba has told me to?   The Dadi’s would make another point in the early days: for each one to see what am I giving in terms of service to the Yagya and what am I taking.  Am I taking more than I am giving?  The whole subject of give and take and my relationship with the Yagya is the relationship with Baba, on a physical practical level as well as with the happiness, joy, and power that Baba gives.  

 

The fourth subject Baba talks about is our sanskars and nature.  Baba uses the expression the ‘sanskars of the body’.  I remember having a conversation with Dadi about it, as I said to her: The sanskars are in the soul, not the body?’.  She explained at that time and I understand more since.  Whatever actions I am speaking and doing, when I am in body consciousness it is the recent sanskars of Raven that emerge.  The negative sanskars that we carry are connected to the bodies of Kaliyug and so when I detach from the body I detach from those sanskars.  It is not only the thoughts in the mind that impact the body. It is experiences too.  Positive experiences are subtle and come and go fast and leave little imprint.  But the experiences of anger, pain, and sorrow create an imprint in our body and the aches and pains we carry are all connected.  When we get upset or react and negativity emerges we feel it physiologically.  This mind-body connection is being explored in a deep way in the world today.  This is why Baba is saying that the sanskars and nature are connected to the body.

 

The main topic in yesterday’s Murli was of purity and  the connection with ‘putting a full stop.’  How come I hear the Murli but where did I not put a full stop so I can remember the Murli? And when there is a situation of upheaval do I need to scratch my head and say ‘what happened’.  It is imprinted so deeply I cannot put a full stop.  The disciplines of purity we follow - celibacy, food, and many other aspects.  But the subtle aspect of waste and negativity is part of purity.  This time Baba was connecting purity and the full stop.  If my attitude is one of purity, of good feelings and wishes the mind won’t be repeating any negativity and at the end of the day we feel good.  But if in a situation I have a negative take on it I am left buzzing with that.   If I have a compassionate take, I am left with a compassionate feeling.  We have to cultivate compassion and happiness and yet do we have to cultivate anger!  When we make sure our thoughts are full of good wishes and an attitude of good feelings for all, it is going to be easy to put a full stop and we move easily.  With negative feelings, if we don’t put a full stop then that feeling will grow, my attitude will change and I will experience physical pains.  Baba says be aware and practise putting a full stop.  When we are in it, we don’t even realise it.  Check and change, be aware and alert and take action to deal with it instantly.

 

Baba today talked about stubbornness as something that prevents us from experiencing detachment and God’s love and success. When there is a principle yes let me hold onto it and be determined.  But when I ‘want’ something and I am trying to prove myself right and I am stubborn about it, then I will have to deal with this negative sanskar as it is ego coming in.  Baba is pushing us from all sides to perfection and to reach the stage of ‘number one’ which is a whole division.  Don’t think no 2 is ok, as Baba says that is lazy effort!  If we keep our vision high, then Baba says He will help us get there.

 

OM SHANTI
