Serving Healthcare Professionals

11 May 2020

Dear Divine Instruments,

Om shanti and greetings. As everywhere, recent times have opened many doors for sharing what we have received from Baba and certainly, distance has been no barrier!

This is to briefly let you know that with  inspirations from Sr.Mohini and many others, we have had several events in the past few weeks to serve healthcare professionals  who have been in great need of help but now more so due to the present crisis. As a team of BK health professionals, most of them with current hands-on experience in patient care, we have started to have weekly on line forum and  meditationsspecifically geared for them and are attaching the flyer.

Please share this widely with your contacts and BKs in the field. Also, please let us know of those who can be valuable resources to share in these forums based on integrating their personal experience of meditation and spirituality in their professional practice.

Thank you. With good wishes for all  you do,




Happidote App – The New Meditation app Especially for Health and Social-Care Professionals

5 May 2020

At this time of particular pressure on healthcare systems around the world,  we wish to remind you of Happidote, the new meditation app especially for health and social-care professionals. Carers would also benefit. The app is free. A short video capturing the highlights of the launch can be found on the Janki Foundation website:


Happidote supports the wellbeing of health professionals around the world. Think ‘happy antidote’. It’s a quick and easy way to access simple guided meditations to help calm the mind and ease the stress of work.


It was written and designed by general practitioners (GPs), consultants, nurses, social workers and therapists—all of whom work in the National Health Service. They are members of The Janki Foundation for Spirituality in Healthcare, a UK registered charity, and they all practice meditation in their day-to-day working lives.


Dr. Sarah Eagger, Chair of the Janki Foundation, explains how it came about:

“We’ve noticed over the years how providing healthcare in a climate of underfunding and cuts, along with the inherent nature of the work, can be harmful to the health and wellbeing of those expected to deliver it! We wanted to develop something accessible to support and nurture those on the frontline. This is especially relevant at this time when health services everywhere are under unprecedented strain.”


The team agreed on 10 typical stress-causing scenarios they had faced at work. They recorded 3-minute meditations to act as the antidote to each situation ….


“We considered which situations at work we found most challenging, and what words of spiritual guidance have helped us personally at those times. What we needed was something we could use on the job – short, succinct ‘first aid’ commentaries of spiritual wisdom that we could listen to and which could protect us from further stress.”


It’s like the concept in sports medicine of recovery to build resilience. Athletes take a few minutes out to recover from the stressful situation and build inner strength. With the Happidote app you just click on one of the above scenarios to hear the situation in full. You ask yourself “How do I feel?” and the antidote corresponding to that situation is revealed through a short meditation of gently-spoken words and quiet background music. For each meditation there are beautiful, original images reflecting the changing mood.


Your state of mind moves from negative to positive, bringing you back to a state of balance. A slogan then helps you focus on ways to support yourself.  In addition, the app has three core meditation practices that can be used anytime, anywhere, and a Spin the Value Scope feature, with one of 20 personal values to inspire and guide you, depending on where the pointer randomly lands.


The Happidote app, available for Android and iPhone formats, is absolutely free for all time, but donations are welcome for the ongoing work of the charity.


We hope you will share the news of Happidote with your colleagues to help support them through this difficult time. Please encourage people to post ratings and reviews on the App store or our website – feedback will help us greatly with any further development.





Brahma Kumaris Offer Isolation and Quarantine Units with 1000 beds

2 April 2020


Mount Abu ( Rajasthan ): Brahma Kumaris Offer Voluntary Assistance To State Administration During Corona Epidemic.


Brahma Kumaris  at its International Headquarters in Mount Abu prepared  1000 beds to serve as isolation and quarantine units to help the state government in dealing with the epidemic of Corona Virus.


Dr. Ravindra Kumar Goswami, SDM, gave this information to the media people. He apprised the people about the voluntary assistance being offered by the Brahma Kumaris to the State government for relief to the patients of this epidemic.  This fully equipped isolation ward with beds has been set up at Brahma Kumaris Mansarovar complex situated on Sirohi Road, Kiwarli village.


Dr. Goswami, further said that this voluntary assistance by Brahma Kumaris should not only be appreciated but also imitated by others.  It is a shining example of coming forward to share social responsibility in a time of crisis.

Various Allopathic,  Ayurvedic and other physicians,  health workers and nurses have been asked by the district administration to offer their services in these isolation units.

अन्तराष्ट्रीय आध्यात्मिक संस्था ब्रह्माकुमारी संगठन ने तैयार किया 1000 बैड का आईसोलेशन

माउंट आबूअन्तराष्ट्रीय संस्था प्रजापिता ब्रह्माकुमारी ईश्वरीय विश्व विद्यालय की ओर से महामारी के रूप में विश्व भर में फैल रहे कोरोना वायरस से बचाव को लेकर प्रशासन की ओर से 1000 बैड का आईसोलेशन तैयार किया गया। यह बात उपखंड अधिकारी डॉ. रविंद्र कुमार गोस्वामी ने मीडियाकर्मियों से मुखातिब होते हुए कही।


उन्होंने कहा कि प्रजापिता ब्रह्माकुमारी ईश्वरीय विश्वविद्यालय ने कोरोना वायरस संक्रमण की रोकथाम को आगे आकर प्रशासन को सहयोग दिया। जिसके तहत शान्तिवन तलहटी के पास सिरोही रोड पर किवरली गांव में मान सरोवर परिसर में अत्याधुनिक आईसोलेशन तैयार किया गया है। जो संभवत: राज्य में पहला उपखंड होगा जिसमें कोरोना वायरस से बचाव को लेकर अत्याधुनिक सुविधाओंयुक्त आईसोलेशन तैयार करने की पहल की गई है।


उन्होंने कहा कि ब्रह्माकुमारी संगठन द्वारा की गई यह पहल अपने आप में सराहनीय ही नहीं अनुकरणीय भी है। महामारी के प्रकोप से बचने के लिए ऐसी कठिन परिस्थितियों में आगे आकर सहयोग प्रदान करने का मानवीय पहलू का एक ज्वलंत उदाहरण है।


इस राष्ट्रीय आपदा के लिए आवश्यकता पडऩे पर प्रशासन हर तरह से तैयारियों में जुटा हुआ है। कोरोना वायरस से बचाव को लेकर आईसोलेशन में 1000 बैड तैयार किये जा चुके हैं। जिसके लिए उपखंड क्षेत्र में स्थित ऐलोपैथी, आयुर्वेदिक अन्य पद्यतियों के चिकित्सकों, स्वास्थ्यकर्मियों, नर्सिंग कॉलेज, स्कूल के विद्यार्थियों को आवश्यकता पडऩे पर आइसोलेशन में सेवायें प्रस्तुत करने के लिए निर्देशित किया गया है।
