Brahma Kumaris is an international non-governmental organization (NGO) of the United Nations, accredited with General Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), and Sister Jayanti has been the organisation’s representative to the UN in Geneva since 1982.

Brahma Kumaris to Address Celebration of International Day of Peace with other Eminent Ambassadors

18 September 2020

 

Did you know that 21 September is the International Day of Peace?

To celebrate and to contribute to making the world a more peaceful place, Heartfulness in partnership with the United Nations, along with many ambassadors such as Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Sister BK Shivani and many others will be coming together for a global movement to ACTIVATE PEACE, Your Super-sense.

Peace needs you!

So, wherever you are, join the celebrations on Monday, September 21st, 2020 at 8 pm IST (India time), followed by a group meditation at 9 pm, on YouTube. Together we can activate this 24-hour chain of peace around the world, by joining the millions.

The ‘Celebrate Peace’ event will be broadcasted in over 100 countries and translated into over 24 languages via online streaming platform partners. Similar virtual events organized by the Heartfulness Institute, such as the International Day of Yoga, have been viewed by over 22 million people, and the upcoming event is poised to reach over 40 million people.

Daaji, the Guide of Heartfulness, said, “At Heartfulness, we will be transmitting on that day throughout the 24 hours. And if you would like to join us in meditation, simply close your eyes and tune into your innermost corner, where you find love in your heart. We will all be meditating together, for peace, harmony, and serenity to engulf this planet.”

BK Sister Shivani, a teacher from the Brahma Kumaris spiritual movement, said, “It’s time to heal the planet and love is the energy which is a healing energy. So when we all come together for our love for the planet, for our love for each other, and for our love for humanity, and together we create peace, we are going to take that first step towards healing our world.”

Deepak Chopra, well-known author and speaker, said, “Bring the presence of peace wherever you go, and if you do that the people around you will feel peaceful not by what you say, not by what you do, even, but just by your presence.”

Shekhar Kapur, noted director and actor, will steer the conversations between the renowned proponents of inner peace, including Daaji, Javier Zanetti, Deepak Chopra, BK Sister Shivani, Sharon Salzberg, as well as Bruce Lipton, Amandine Roche, Bob Boisture, Thomas d’Ansembourg, Marta Bassino, and Michela Moioli. Renowned musicians who have volunteered their time for peace will also be part of the event.

The Heartfulness network will be supporting Communities of Peace around the world leading up to the main day, by holding online events from 5 September 2020. To participate in your local activities in India, please call 1-800-121-3492 or send an email to peaceday@heartfulness.org.

Madhuban Double Foreign Program 2020 - 2021 Season

17 September 2020

Dear Centre Co-ordinators,

Baba continues to sustain us in so many ways and we have all been keen to know when we may again make the pilgrimage to our sweet home of Madhuban. As we are all aware, the situation of Covid is still quite severe in many countries, including India, and so we cannot say with any certainty when this may be possible.

The Double Foreign programme team are thinking ahead and are preparing a virtual Madhuban experience with the theme of 'Madhuban Our Sacred Home'. The first transmission of a special Murli from BapDada will be on the 18th of October.  

Below is the first communication from the Double Foreign Programme Team. We hope you will all be able to join in.

Please do share this note, together with the message below, with your BK students.

With love,
in Baba's yaad,
RCs


Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Warmest greetings of love to our dear family.

October 2020
On the 17th of October at both 8:00 and 20:00 Madhuban time, there will be an online experience of Madhuban which will include a live welcome by our seniors and along with many touching scenes: The link for "Home Sweet Home" will be sent out to all the Centres soon. Centers can choose to watch at whichever timing best suits their time zone and a recording will also be immediately available to watch at your convenience.   

 

Sunday 18th of October is the first date this season for the transmission of a special Murli from BapDada, along with meeting the seniors. The broadcast will begin from 5:00pm India time. Dates for other transmissions during the season will also be sent to you.

For November, December and January the DF Program Team will be designing some highly creative programs.  Details will follow.

Good Wishes from BK Nirwair Bhai, Madhuban

12 September 2020

My dear divine sisters and brothers of all the Godly Service Centres of Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya in Bharat and foreign lands, Please accept multi-million fold hearty Godly love-filled remembrances.

 

I hope each of you must be enjoying the angelic company of Avyakt BapDada while going about your normal routine.

 

After about 5 months of lockdown, small groups of 50 BKs from different Centres of Bharat have started to visit Shantivan from the end of August for their 3-4 day Madhuban pilgrimage. Baba's children have been missing Madhuban a lot, and so as per the latest Government Guidelines, our responsible instruments are inviting and bestowing spiritual nourishment through a refreshing routine. All the participants seem to be flying with spiritual intoxication.

 

This year, we have had very good rains in Abu Road and Mount Abu, and all the water reservoirs are full! River Banas at Abu Road had also been flowing bank to bank for a few weeks in between, assuring continuity of water supply to all the towns and villages. These days, the devout have been visiting Mother Ambaji Temple near Abu Road (in Gujarat), and hundreds of tourists from Gujarat and nearby States have also been flocking to the Mount to enjoy the monsoonic weather, and waterfalls.

 

Mount Abu has received 67-inches of rain during the season so far; let's see what the second half of September brings.

 

Madhuban Niwasis of all the three complexes have been enjoying their regular routine of Seva and Tapasya Bhattis for Self Empowerment, and spreading spiritual vibrations to combat the wasteful forces in the atmosphere. The more we stay in Baba's company, we are taken away from the old world and the pull of the earth, to experience our Supreme Abode, and the feeling of togetherness with One. Neither can the body nor the atmosphere affect us thereafter...

 

With all loving good wishes,

BK Nirwair

 

 

 

 

Message from the RCs

10 September 2020

Dear Brothers & Sisters, Most lovely and respected members of the Brahmin family from around the world,

 

Greetings of love from the Regional Coordinators.  According to the time, we feel the need to connect with you and share occasional messages and subtle signals for how together we can fulfill both our responsibilities and Baba’s hopes during this time of increased fragility and unpredictability.

 

Baba has told us that things will happen suddenly and to be ever ready.  This means being free of fear and uncertainty about how our centres will run or what might happen. By remaining merged in Baba’s remembrance with the awareness that “nothing is mine; everything belongs to You” we become accurate instruments.  Baba’s company will give us power to face all situations.  Managing our centers and our service is made easy when we follow shrimat accurately. If you are unsure about anything, talk things through with your fellow centre residents, and if something is still unclear, discuss the situation with a senior.  

 

The strong energies and extreme conflicts emerging in the outer world are part of these times when all karmas are resolved.  Our role is to continuously do subtle checking of the intellect, remain apart from these conflicts and remove any waste as we bring our perfect form in front of us. Our spiritual journey is an inner one, taken through our minds and intellects and ultimately beyond both into silence and stillness.

 

When we remain in the constant company of Baba, the quality of our yoga will be high.  By sustaining that clear link, we will be able to take His guidance on big decisions and even on small things.  Most important now is our stage.  By making our stage stable and powerful, by being loving and detached we will be able to face any test.  By wearing our costume of light, made of the subtle threads of pure vibrations, we are able to bring the gifts of love, peace, compassion and kind-heartedness to the troubled souls of the world.  It’s in these times, especially where many of us are being asked to be more ‘isolated’, we have this opportunity to accumulate the power of silence and do mansa seva together.

 

While Baba’s vision has been our protection, time is calling us to live and to share that vision as we serve selflessly to bring peace to a world in conflict and love to hearts filled with animosity and fear.  In this way we also pass on the sustenance we ourselves have received.

 

As we bring establishment closer this is also the time for love and unity in the Brahmin family, for harmony among the instruments in all of Baba’s places.  Now is the time to pack up and create both the intention and the ethos that will keep us together as we create a new world with a new consciousness.  Each one of us, in this divine world family, is a humble instrument for this.

 

With love, in Baba’s yaad,

BK Nirmala on behalf of the RCs:

BK Mohini, BK Jayanti, BK Sudesh, BK Vedanti and BK Chakradhari
