Madhuban DF Program - Group 4 Nov/Dec 2022

26 November 2022

Dear Brothers & Sisters, Greetings of Love!

 

Please download the online schedule of classes which will be broadcast from Gyan Sarovar during the DF Program for Group 4 from 26 November - 4th December HERE. We hope you will join in whenever the timing suits you.

 

All timings shown are IST, and the videos will be available on the DF Madhuban Program YouTube Channel following live streaming http://tiny.cc/DFMadhubanProgramYouTube

 

For those coming to Madhuban, we look forward to welcoming you soon, where there will be opportunities for more special on-the-ground sessions.

 

Filming of DF Family in Gyan Sarovar, 2022/23 Season.

  

Recently the RCs made a decision that during the live online programs there will be filming of the audience that is present in the hall. There will be areas in the hall signposted for those who don’t want to be filmed to sit in and the filming team will NOT film people sitting in these areas. This is now the policy for this season.  It is good to note, that if people go up to the stage to ask a question during the session, they may be filmed. If they would not like to be filmed, they can alternatively write their question and have it passed to the MC.

 

The live streaming from the Gyan Sarovar Translation Team YouTube channels is available for some languages. Please see the below links and connect with your language coordinators, as live streaming will only happen when there is a translator in Madhuban at that time.

Golden Drops Update & Film Premiere - 1 December

19 November 2022

Om shanti and Golden Greetings dear divine family,

 

As the Golden Drops team, we are happy to give some short and sweet updates as we are already in the 5th month of the initiative, on the way to 31 May 2023.

 

Good news

  • We have over 120 videos for you to use and share with your contacts, BKs at the centre and your community to shower Golden Drops on the world and create a sense of hope and beauty. Please find all golden drops on this YouTube-link: 

https://www.youtube.com/c/GoldenDrops2022/videos?view=0&sort=dd&shelf_id=0

 

  • Another 7 countries have contributed a Golden Drop: Lithuania, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Cambodia, Trinidad and Tobago, and Kuwait. So that brings the count to 43 countries. We are still aiming for a Golden Drop from every country in the world. You are warmly invited to send us a contribution from your own country and help to get a drop from all your neighbor countries and friends in other countries: goldendrops@au.brahmakumaris.org

 

  • The GD team is growing as new editors, posting team, upload team and many others have joined to create these beautiful Golden Drops for the world 

 

  • A second workshop for the public has been created to use after the introductory workshop, because BK’s asked us: what next? after part one. Both workshops can be downloaded HERE and HERE. All workshop materials can be found via this link:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1uhUZsqX5gAQrirbRbnDEldANYIcYJ5s6?usp=share_link

 

A Beautiful World Film Premiere

  • On December 1: A Beautiful World Film will be premiered on YouTube and Facebook, showing some of the finest Golden Drops by theme. After watching it yourself, you may wish to watch it with your local BK-family or as a public program. It could be followed by a conversation on how to move ahead in current times and the idea of a new world that is awaiting at the horizon. Find the film on GD YouTube channel after Dec. 1

 

And the last thing to mention is that there are some interesting obstacles to posting directly. Facebook has changed its policies to disallow external posts on non-profit organizations. Now it is only via Instagram that people can share a golden drop contribution directly - but you can always share with us at Golden Drops email: goldendrops@au.brahmakumaris.org.

 

With golden appreciation for your attention.

In Baba’s sweet yaad,

On behalf of all members of the team, Judy, Petra and Charlie

Diwali Message: Mohini Didi

INVITATION: Silence Retreats of TOWER OF SILENCE in India

19 October 2022

Dear Angels,

 

By now, you will have received all information about the 2022/23 Double Foreigner season in Madhuban from your CC.

 

We are adding to this the invitation for two TOWER OF SILENCE retreats this year and a save the date for a third retreat next year. All these retreats will take place in India.

 

The first two can be combined with a Madhuban DF group period and the third one is part of the last DF group program at Gyan Sarovar.

 

Jayanti Didi gave her ok for all this. According to the advice of the DF season organisation team, we are sending this to you before they publish the whole Madhuban program. (On the explicit request of Jayanti Didi, this communication is not sent via London, but by the Tower of Silence Team itself.)

 

THE RETREATS:

 

TOWER OF SILENCE 26

28 September to 9 October 2022

ORC Delhi

For BK teachers and right hands from India and abroad over

10 years in gyan

 

TOWER OF SILENCE 27

  TOWER OF SILENCE 31

The Retreats:

The world is waiting for a reunification of science and spiritual force. When in us souls the science of gyan becomes silence in the still failure-free mind, dualism ends and ushers in the pure karmateet thoughtless vigyan point, and the significance of its subtle signals touching the selected scientists’ inventor intellect leads to the development of completely stable satopradhan technologies.

 

Albert Einstein: “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one. We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move towards higher levels.”  

 

Nikola Tesla: “The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena; it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”  

 

Baba’s message through Shashi Bhen, January 2022: "Baba again brings to your attention to make your stage so powerful through silence that the signals of/for the coming time can be understood, and everyone served through signals and vibrations can accomplish the task of world transformation. Science working for the new world will get power and fasten the speed through the children’s stable and silent vibrations."

 

 

Retreat Contents:

 

T H E   plan:

 

Experiential essences of being, becoming 

k a r m a t e e t  - p e r f e c t - c o m p l e t e

The natural occurrence of the ONE plan of revelation

 

For BK souls who feel a deep maturity, and having been selected by Baba, to explore the stability of karmateet silence and perfection and the inherent service through sakaash to Baba’s selected scientist souls and protagonists in world transformation
