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.
