BapDada's Message from Sr Mohini, New York

17 October 2020

Dear Brahmins of the highest clan created by Baba,


Godly loving greetings to each one of you. You must all be safe, healthy, wealthy with Baba's treasures and happy under Baba's canopy of protection and blessings.


I had requested Sr Mohini to bring a message for Baba's children worldwide. We are most fortunate that a very detailed message has come from Baba to help us all at this time of great need. This is attached both in English and Hindi.


We are all looking forward to the first Avyakt meeting of this season on 18 October. A small group of teachers has been invited from UP zone to be present in Shantivan.


We will surely receive more directions and blessings from Baba in that murli also.


With loving good wishes from your Madhuban family and also all the RCs.


In Baba's eternal yaad,


BK Nirmala

Dealing With Uncertain Times Conversation #7 "The Death of all Deaths"

12 October 2020

Dear Divine Family,

We would like to invite you for the 7th edition of our conversations on Dealing with Uncertain Times from a Spiritual Perspective. Please see the invitation for Conversation #7 The Death of all Deaths 30 October. This is a private link for BKs only.

This series is intended to engage BKs in personal reflection and learn from senior brothers and sisters who have been experimenting with spiritual solutions to practical challenges for many years.   

You can check our previous editions in this link: http://tiny.cc/UncertainTimesPlayList

Conversation #7 The Death of all Deaths 30 October

As Brahmins, we understand that the experience of death will finish for half a cycle as we effortlessly move from an old body to a new one. However, we still face the physical and emotional upheavals associated with death at this time despite the knowledge we have. There may be fear of getting sick, being alone, and suffering. How do we relate to death in a positive way? And what can help us move beyond the fear of death?

The discussion will be in English. Those language coordinators who would like translation, please contact Marcelo. 

Sr Maureen Programme Director, UK.  In service since the 1980s with a special interest in Interreligious dialogue.

Online Avyakt Meeting dates and Special letter of remembrance from Madhuban

9 October 2020

Dear Divine family, 

 

Supremely Beloved Avyakt BapDada’s instrument teachers, brothers and sisters, ones who always keep the seed of your thoughts full with good wishes of benevolence, ones who are engaged in world benefit, please accept sweet love-filled remembrance.

 

Seeing the present scenes of the drama, all of you must definitely be serving to make your own stage powerful and with the practice of service through the mind, are giving the donation of yoga to the whole world and to nature.  According to the pure thoughts of all Baba’s children in this land and abroad, we are sending you this letter of remembrance.  As all of you can see, the Coronavirus has put a stop to all types of service programmes.  In Madhuban, in all three complexes, all programmes have been stopped for the past six months.

 

Our sweet and lovely Dadi Gulzarji is still in Gamdevi centre, Mumbai, and it is from there that Dadiji is giving us the experience of the powerful vibrations of Avyakt BapDada’s sakaash.  All of us have taken avyakt sustenance from this chariot for 48 years and heard the sweet elevated versions, and even receiving powerful drishti through the video gives us the experience of being merged in God’s love and of filling our aprons with blessings.

 

This year, the programme for Avyakt BapDada’s incarnations in this land and abroad will be heard and seen online, enabling all brothers and sisters to become merged in the ocean of experiences.

 

If we receive permission from the Government for some brothers and sisters in India to come to Madhuban, we will inform you of the numbers of how many brothers and sisters can come and on what date they arrive in Madhuban and what date they have to leave.  Of course, being in our own places, we will celebrate an auspicious meeting with BapDada on-line.

 

With lots of remembrance,

In Godly service,

B.K. Ratanmohini

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.

Confirmed partners include the United Nations Information Centre, the Fetzer Institute, Knauf Armstrong, Global Ecovillage Network, Amazoncare, ICSI, Red FM, the Spirit of Humanity Forum, Global Citizen India, Give India, Football for Peace, Education for Peace, Guerrand-Hermes Foundation for Peace, MIT World Peace University, Lovely University, International Cities of Peace, and more.

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,

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.
