IMPORTANT Update on Dadi Gulzarji's health - please read fully

20 February 2021 - sent on 18th February

Dear Beloved Avyakt BapDada’s jewels of light, all BK teachers, brothers and sisters in this land and abroad, and all the members of the divine family,

 

You will be pleased to know that our supremely respected Dadi Gulzarji’s health is gradually improving. After some intense checking, doctors have informed us that all parameters are normal. I spoke to our beloved Neeluben today who also gave the good news that Dadiji is conscious and is responding when spoken to.  Doctors are looking after Dadi with a lot of love.

 

Dr. Pratap Midha (Director, Global Hospital) stayed with Dadiji for one week, and after co-ordinating with other doctors, has now returned to Mt.Abu. At this time, respected Dr. Ashok Mehta, B.K. Ashaben  (Om Shanti Retreat Centre), Dr. Brijesh (Gwalior), Dr. Kavitaben (Hyderabad) and Dr. Benarasi continually have discussions with experts and all of them believe that Dadiji’s health will improve quickly and she will return to Gamdevi centre.

 

We have been receiving everyone’s messages for Dadiji’s good health, and extend many, many thanks in return. We request that you continue to cooperate with your vibrations of tapasya, and Dadiji will surely be discharged soon from Saifee Hospital, and return to Baba’s Centre at Gamdevi, Mumbai.

 

Please do not pay attention to all the false rumours that have spread about Dadiji. We will continue to keep you up to date about Dadiji’s health in the future.

 

It is our firm faith that Avyakt BapDada is looking after His chosen chariot very well and is giving His blessings for her to get well soon. Many, many thanks together with Godly remembrance to all brothers and sisters.

 

In Godly service,

B.K. Nirwair

Dr. Pratap

Dear All, Greetings from Mumbai, 

 

Since morning there have been loads of FAKE messages being circulated across various social media platforms with regards to our Beloved Dadi Gulzar jikindly see attached image for reference. As a result of this chaos, we have been flooded with calls and messages from all over the world. Hence, we requested Dr. Ashok Mehta to give us proper and authentic information with regards to Dadi Ji’s health as he has been present in the hospital from day one. Being a senior Dr. and also the one who has treated Dadi Ji over years, it was best to ask him to give us proper information. 

 

So here is what he has said today at 3 PM (IST) 

"Dadiji is recovering, and her general condition is improving. She is haemodynamically stable, and passing adequate urine. She is conscious, responding to verbal commands. She is being weaned off the ventilator."

 

We hope the message is clear. Also, we would request all to PLEASE do not believe and circulate any messages on any social media platforms if it has not come from any official source. 

 

On Behalf of Karuna ji 

B.K.Nikunj

What Is Next? - Sr Sona interviews Sr Denise

At every level people are faced with uncertainty. We want guarantees. We want to know in advance how much time and money we can expect. Even Brahmins want to plan ahead for our holidays and special events... including our trips to Madhuban. We want to know what is next.


But in these times of uncertainty, we BKs have to go with the flow like never before. We must be agile and use our power to adjust to the unexpected rapidly and without taking on undue stress. We must be flexible enough to adapt to increasing levels of stress, emotional pressure, social and professional instability. What role does our direct connection with Baba play in this scenario?

 

There will be time for Q and A from the listeners.

Watch the Replay: Interview with Sister Jayanti on "Nation Wants to Know", Republic TV, January 30-31

7 February 2021

Brahma Kumaris European Director Sister Jayanti spoke to Republic TV’s Editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami on Saturday, about meditation, Raj Yoga, soul-searching.

Amid the ongoing strife in the world over Coronavirus and clashes in India over farm laws, Brahma Kumaris European Director Sister Jayanti spoke to Republic Media Network Editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami on Saturday about meditation, Raj Yoga, the need for introspection, and soul-searching. Sister Jayanti, who hails from London, also spoke about coming to India in search of her roots and joining the Bramha Kumaris to know more about herself. Envisioning a harmonious future for humanity, she said that we will move to Satyug – the age of truth.

Sister Jayanti of Brahma Kumaris speaks to Arnab, shares the BK philosophy against violence.

Crime continues to be one of the major challenges for most countries and India too faces the task of keeping the law and order situation intact. The most recent example of this was the farmer protests against the government’s three agricultural laws, that led to violence in Delhi. Amid this chaos, numerous spiritual organisations and mystics have been spreading the message of peace across the world, aiming to help people on an individual level, in an attempt at reducing the cases of law and order problems in the country.

Sister Jayanti speaks on COVID lockdown & recharging the battery

With the world battling the COVID-19 pandemic and its subsequent consequences, the past year since the virus outbreak has been difficult for people across the globe. The fears of lockdown and feelings of being caged took over individuals as governments imposed stringent curbs to cut down the spread of the virus. As a result, several beings were left alone and uncared for facing tougher times without any preparations.

Shedding light on methods to cope up with the difficulties faced by the globe today, Sister Jayanti Kirpalani of the Brahma Kumaris spoke to Republic Media Network’s Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami and elaborated on the way to traverse through the lockdown and recharging the ‘inner battery’. Drawing parallels between our technology devices and the human body, Sister Jayanti remarked that just like mobiles, bodies were also discharged after prolonged use.

‘Awareness of the inner being’

Elaborating on the ways to get through tough times in the current state of affairs, she said, “Just looking at the current state of the world, I would say that this is such a difficult time for many many people to travel through and it feels as if it is a time that is very heavy, very difficult but also very dark. At such a time, meditation and the awareness of the inner being soul and the connection with God is the most critical aspect of our life. Because if I can go within and come to that awareness in which I can have a stable mind and a loving mind, a generous heart, and an intellect that is able to recognise the difference between truth and reality and that which is false and illusions.”

“I think that if I can develop these facets of my own being through meditation, I’ll be able to traverse this very difficult journey of life and without that inner capacity and inner strength, it's going to be very difficult. I know that for many people a long lockdown across the world has been a very difficult challenge and that’s because either they felt lonely, they had nobody who could support them or they felt too much burdened by the family,” Sister Jayanti added.

Emphasizing the need to recharge and rejuvenate, Sister Jayanti said, “If you have a battery, it gets discharged. Like with your phone, if you don’t charge it gets discharged. The same thing is with your inner being. You need to give time to recharge your own inner battery, your mind will become sensitive, your decisions will fluctuate. If you recharge your inner battery with meditation, you will have the power to deal with everything. It is important, especially today to give time to yourself.”

When asked about the message and teachings of the Brahma Kumaris, Sister Jayanti noted, “We feel it is very important to be able to study spiritual teachings because very often so far we have just been taught to believe something and not necessarily have an understanding of the ideas that come up. So, the Brahma Kumaris believe that the first step is to be able to understand yourself.  Very often it is said how self-realization leads to God-realization. So for me, that was absolutely true. When I began to understand what is the soul, but more importantly I began to understand the existence of the inner being, the being of light and peace."

Sister Jayanti speaks on impact of COVID-19 on world & need for recharging ‘inner battery’

‘Light is not fighting with darkness’

Sister Jayanti Kirpalani replied, “When there’s great darkness and light begins to end to the world, then it is a battle between light and dark. But always, not just in fairytales, but in reality, ultimately it’s the light that wins because the light isn’t fighting the darkness. If there’s darkness, what do you do, you just light a candle and the candle and the power of the illumination of the candle, will gradually allow the darkness to go away.”

Kirpalani also stated,” In a way, ignorance and darkness are coming because there is an absence of light. But when light begins to enter the world, the darkness disappears.”

‘Soul can be healed through meditation & God’s love’: Sister Jayanti shares mantra

Speaking further with Republic Media Network’s Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, Sister Jayanti opined that it is possible to heal the soul. According to her, the soul can be healed only through meditation and God’s love. Maintaining that the healing of a soul is a very different matter as compared to physical healing of the body, she stressed that meditation strengthens one’s connection with God. Moreover, Sister Jayanti contended that God’s love can then be shared with as many people as possible.

Sister Jayanti also remarked, “If you scratch below the surface, I don’t think there is a single human being around at this moment who doesn’t have a pain or sorrow that they are carrying. It is only through meditation and God’s love that soul can be healed. In physical terms, I scratch myself and there is a bit of blood, or I have an accident and there is a lot of blood spilled. (There is) a race to heal the body. But the healing of the soul is a very different matter.”

She added, “It is not even a question of time. Something may have happened 10 years ago, 20 years ago and I still carry the pain of that. My experience is that in meditation, I am genuinely feeling that I want to come closer to God. I want to be able to move forward. Then, my connection with God opens up a stream of love. And the power of God’s love is such that the power is able to heal the wounds of the soul. And my wounds have been healed and I am filling myself with God’s love so that my own heart becomes open and generous, then I can share that pure love not with one, not with two, not with 4 but with each and every individual that I am in contact with.”

Continuing her explanation, the European Director of the Brahma Kumaris contended that the entire world is in need of healing at the moment. She said, “The whole of the world is in the need of healing at this moment. This is why there is such anger and violence and aggression that we see continuously. When I am hurt, there is a saying that goes something like this - 'hurt people, hurt people'. This is a fact. So, if I can heal myself with God’s love, then I can also be an instrument to connect others with God so that they can also take this healing power of love from God.”

“Not only is it possible to heal oneself through God’s love, It is possible to go through a whole transformation. And through that transformation be able to remove whatever is negative in oneself. If you think about it, you see that whenever there is a negative thought- its ego, its anger, greed, attachment whatever, the basis of that thought is a false notion that my identity is connected with my physical form,”  Sister Jayanti elaborated. 

Sister Jayanti’s world vision

Speaking about her vision for the world in the future, she said, “I always think about myself. Can I think about the world and its needs? Mahatma Gandhi said, ‘There is enough for everyone’s need, but not enough for one’s greed’. Humanity will move together to the next level. Satyug is the age of truth – a world in which all of us can live harmoniously as one family, one world”.

‘Light always wins’: Sister Jayanti’s top 10 quotes on Brahma Kumaris’ philosophy

1.’Meditation a necessity in today’s dark times’

While talking about the anarchy being witnessed by the world in today’s time and the pain that the pandemic had caused, Sister Jayanti said, “In today’s world, at this moment of time when we are all part of the global family. Looking at the current state of the world it is such a difficult time for many people. It is a time that is heavy, difficult, and dark. Meditation, connection with the inner being of the soul and God is very important at this point of time. The first step is to have self-awareness and the second step is to connect to the Divine, the Being of Light.”

2.’In the battle between light & darkness, light always wins’

Mentioned above, but worth mentioning again in this context: “When there is great darkness and light begins to enter the world, then it is a battle between light and dark. But always, not just in fairytales, but in reality, ultimately it’s the light that wins because the light isn’t fighting the darkness. If there’s darkness, what do you do, you just light a candle and the candle and the power of the illumination of the candle will gradually allow the darkness to go away. In a way, ignorance and darkness are coming because there is an absence of light. But when light begins to enter the world, the darkness disappears,” she said.

3.’Recharge your inner battery with meditation’

Drawing parallels between our technology devices and the human body, Sister Jayanti remarked that just like mobiles, bodies are also discharged after prolonged use. “If you have a battery, it gets discharged. Like with your phone, if you don’t charge it gets discharged. The same thing is with your inner being. You need to give time to recharge your own inner battery, your mind will become sensitive, your decisions will fluctuate. If you recharge your inner battery with meditation, you will have the power to deal with everything. It is important, especially today to give time to yourself,” she stated.

4.’You have everything you need within yourself’

Stressing on the need for introspection she said, “First you must give time to yourself for introspection. You need to understand you have everything you need within yourself. You just need to connect with yourself under the layers and layers of dust that have accumulated. I need to slowly get deeper and reach the shining star that I am.”

5.If you have self-esteem, you can treat others with dignity and respect

‘If you have self-esteem, you can treat others with dignity and respect. I don’t need you to give me respect but rather I am able to give respect to you and probably you will start giving me respect in return.

6.’Happiness is something I have within myself’

Sister Jayanti also asserted that happiness never lies in persons or material things. “Happiness is something I have within myself. When I connect with the divine, I am able to connect with the happiness that is truly mine. I don’t need things or people to make me happy,” she stated.

7.’Healing of the soul is not a question of time’

Talking about whether souls could be healed at any time and age, she said, “Only through meditation and god’s love can the soul be healed. Healing of the soul is not a question of time. I can carry the pain of something that happened 20 years ago. In meditation, when I feel I want to move forward, my connection with God opens the stream of love, and God’s love has the power to heal the wounds of the soul.”

8.’Your identity is much more than your physical form’

“Whenever there is a negative thought, the basis of that thought is a false notion that my identity is connected with my physical form. Not true. My identity is something much more than my physical form. It is latent within my inner being,” she remarked.

9.’Each one of us has gifts from the divine’

“In the eternal identity of who I truly am, I see everyone as equal. Each one of us has gifts from the divine. There will be no ego if you recognize this. We need to maintain awareness of who we truly are. Every human being is valuable, every form of life, nature, and the planet is valuable,” she stated.

10.’There is no lack of anything, only a lack of love’

“When I’m in this limited form, I think about me, what I want, and the members of my family. That is a limited narrow way. Can I think of the world as my family? Being concerned for their needs as I am for my needs? There is not a lack of anything in the world, there is a lack of love; we are not willing to share,” she stated.

About the project

Living the Legacy of Love invites you to envision and feel the pull of our ancestor souls who lovingly and faithfully walked in Baba’s footsteps.

 

Living the Legacy of Love is a virtual opportunity created for the sustenance of Brahmins across the world.

 

The intention behind this project is to create a unified space, that Brahmins can access daily, to experience and be inspired by the unlimited love and wisdom of our ancestors. To deeply embody and live out the virtues and qualities that Baba is pulling us towards.

Keeping vibrations high, and thoughts and feelings elevated are the need of the hour now. Even though we are socially restricted, this project will provide much-needed family time together; virtual trips to Madhuban and a trip down memory lane. We hope it will help create a sense of togetherness, belonging and unity. At the same time, we will envision and feel the pull of our ancestor souls who lovingly and faithfully walked in Baba’s footsteps.

 

This project is a continuation and a development of the much-loved United Yoga Bhatti.

 

Each video follows a similar format: 3-5 minutes of carefully selected segments from classes given by our beloved Dadi’s and Dada’s, accompanied by moments of love and joy and a 10-minute meditation to reflect upon and digest what is being shared.

All of the content will be translated into several languages to model inclusivity.

 

The Legacy of love can be found on our YouTube Channel.

December 31 2020 – Bhog Message brought by Sr Mohini

4 January 2021

Baba with a lot of love accepted bhog and was sharing drishti with each one of us. Each one of us was communicating through drishti, saying something to Baba, and Baba was also talking personally with each one because it is through drishti that Baba communicates. Baba’s language is the language of silence, so everything works through drishti. I also shared drishti with Baba, and I felt how Baba not only loves us but was giving a lot of assurance that everything is good and will be better and better.

 

Baba then said, “The children are making a lot of effort.” I said, “Baba, everyone is thinking that they need to reach the final stage, the stage of perfection.” Baba said, “Yes, time is also giving signals to all of you to be prepared, to reach your own final and perfect stage for your own benefit and also because that stage of perfection is the stage from which you will serve. When you have that stage, even if you are slightly less, whatever thoughts you have, whatever words you speak, and whatever actions you do reach many souls. It’s not that you have to make a conscious effort to do mansa seva: every thought is serving.

 

You children are the roots of the tree, so whatever thoughts you have will reach the whole tree. It’s not just a question of feeling you are responsible, because that might make you feel heavy. Actually, every thought reaches the world. In this way, you are constant servers. It’s only by paying a little attention that every thought will become elevated, full of pure feelings and good wishes. That’s what all souls want -- to experience pure thoughts and good wishes. You all do this naturally, but once in a while, you get caught up in your own little situations and sanskars.

 

From now, it’s important to always remember, “I am an unlimited world server”. As soon as you realize that your thoughts are going in a direction that is not necessary, you will immediately remove the unnecessary thoughts and remind yourself, “I am an unlimited world server”. Every child has this thought. Baba said you are world servers. You sow the seed from your thoughts and then whatever you speak and whatever action you perform benefits the whole world. This is how you are all unlimited servers.

 

I told Baba that in our lokik world, our physical world, we are entering a new year. Baba said that in the subtle region there is no old year or new year. Baba knows the children are preparing to end the old and start the new. Baba wants to give congratulations because you children were very brave, very stable. The aim was to be consistent and the children did very well in this year. Next year you will be better. You will think of new and different things. Baba is giving good wishes and encourages the children to use all the blessings.

 

You have a full treasure store of blessings with you. Now is the time to think based on those blessings. Speak and share those blessings and use those blessings for the success of what you do. It’s not only a new year but you are moving towards a new age also. Baba gave lots of good wishes. Baba said you are stars of success and will always be successful.

 

It's a question of creating the awareness that I am a successful star, and you will be successful.

 

Baba gave love and remembrances to everyone.
