Dadi Ratan Mohini, who has come to Pandav Bhawan after many months, was present with the lovely gathering. On 20th night there was garba raas and dancing in Gyan Sarovar for all.
On the 20th, Dadi Ratan Mohini had come to conduct class for the double foreigners in Gyan Sarovar at 12noon, and then Dadi Janki met everybody. Dadi Janki then took leave and went down the mountain. I conducted evening class on the subject of ‘Influences' which was followed by yoga.

Dear Divine Family, Greetings of Peace and Love !
It pleases us to inform you that a Faculty Development Programme of the VMOU for Brothers and Sisters from Rajasthan was organised at the Value Education Office, Anand Bhawan, Shantivan from 15th to 17th October, 2015.
The training was co-ordinated by Dr. R.P.Gupta and was conducted by Prof. BK Ved Guliani, BK Mukesh, BK Supriya and BK Chitra, who undertook to train the would-be teachers in Value Education and Spirituality.

The programme successfully concluded on the evening of 17th Oct. 2015.

18 October Madhuban News from Sr Jayanti
18 October 2015
On Sunday morning, a group of us went with Gyan Sarovar Niwasis to the new Dadi Janki Park which is on the right-hand side of the Main gate of Gyan Sarovar, as you approach from the road. Part of it has been developed on the flat ground just by the Gate, and the other side has been developed on the hillside across the road. Sudeshben and myself planted trees, together with Lakshmiben who is from the Centre that Br Harish first took gyan in. Harishbhai is the main person instigating these parks and gardens in recent years, and taking care of them. We had meditation giving sakash both to Gyan Sarovar as well as the whole park. There were some blessings of gyan shared.
A very beautiful plan has been drawn for the Park which includes a musical fountain, a Baba's Room, and an open-air theater on the flat land near the Gate.
Dadi Janki arrived in Gyan Sarovar just before 12noon. Dadi came into class and it was just the double foreigners who were there. They played some very beautiful songs of the Mother, and Dadi shared drishti, love and danced holding hands with the DF group who were near the stage.
18thevening, we had a line-up of the Russian sisters dressed up in the form of the Shaktis. Rajniben and Meeraben narrated the description of each of the Shaktis very beautifully. There was a song played that spoke about that particular aspect, so it was a very lovely scene. Dadi Janki came in at about 6pm to see the last half of the scene of the Shaktis. Dadi came on stage to give all of them drishti. For 10 minutes there was powerful yoga with the Shaktis and Dadi giving drishti, after which we began our World Meditation Hour. There was a 5-minute intro to remind people that this was a meditation which was devoted to peace for the earth, and a 5-minute commentary on the same, and then of course meditation till 7.30pm. It has been a long day, and so Dadi then went to rest. It was a powerful evening.

13th October News from Madhuban by Sr Jayanti
14 October 2015

Sr Jayanti's Madhuban News from 8 to 11 Oct
14 October 2015
On 8th evening we had a celebration for Dr Nirmalaben's 80th birthday (India calls it the 81st as she has completed 80 years) with Gyan Sarovar & Madhuban Niwasis, double foreigners and some of the Global Hospital family. Many had come up from Shantivan as well. It was a beautiful sharing of love and the lessons that many have learned from Dr Nirmalaben's experience, and the experiences they've had with her. I shared how she was the first teacher that Baba designated for service abroad, and so she was there in 1971 not only with the first delegation, but also as the first teacher to be resident in a tiny little Centre in Tennyson Road. She had never stayed on her own before, and her purity, humility and honesty laid the foundation of service in foreign lands.
Dadi Janki conducted yoga on the 10th with the whole gathering and then spoke, but was also keen to see the first-timers from across the world, and also the participants from the various continents. Afterwards, Dadi gave toli to 800 people: the double foreigner group but also Gyan Sarovar residents, sevadharis, and some Pandav Bhawan niwasis also.

Bapdada's Most Respected and Serviceable Instruments,
Greetings and News from Br Nirwair Ji on 29th September
30 September 2015
Our dear divine sisters and brothers of the BK family around the world,
Please accept hearty-Godly love and remembrances from Dadi Jankiji and all Madhuban Niwasis.
India is the land of festivals as we all know. A few days back we had the rituals for the festival of Ganesh Chaturti for 10 days, and it concluded with lot of festivity, drum-beating, and smearing of vermillion. Roads in many cities, especially Mumbai, were jam-packed with long processions for immersion of the idols in the sea. Maharashtra in particular celebrates this festival grandly, and leads the rituals in comparison to other States.
These are the days when people in India remember their departed near and dear ones and arrange for special bhojan in their memory, known as Shraad (28 Sept – 12 October). This is for a period of 10 days after which the festival of Navratri will start (13 October), when the children, youth and even the elderly dance continuously for hours from evening to late nights, while singing praise of the 9 Mother Goddesses. They perform the exquisite dance form, ‘dandiya raas', where all participants have specially designed sticks in their hands, which create beautiful music as the dance progresses. It has been believed for ages that the festival of Navratri followed by Dasshera (22 October) helps re-energizes one's physical, mental and spiritual health.
In big towns and small villages, people place the image of the Mother Goddess as presiding deity in the centre of the gathering, and then participants dance around the Goddess in a very organised, disciplined and appealing way. The most entertaining part of these celebrations is the spirit of dancing prevalent amongst even little kids, who come adorned in colourful outfits as if they were Shri Krishna or Shri Radha, gopes and gopis, to perform amazing dances and even win prizes in competitions. Navratri celebrations are the most auspicious occasion of bringing people of all faiths together to rejoice, and enjoy sweets and other delicacies before or after the dance programmes. Sometimes there are also ladoos-eating competitions, as we read in the news the other day; one ‘young' man of 102 years managed 60 ladoos in one sitting!
Would also like to share that our dear Dadi Ratan Mohiniji has not been keeping very good health for the last month. Things are improving after much effort and care. Dadiji is expected to return to Shantivan from Ahmedabad around 5 October.
The fury of rain this year, especially in mountainous regions, has been severe, but at the same time, three districts in Maharashtra have been struck by drought. Marginal farmers owning just an acre of land are succumbing to suicide as they can't re-pay their loans and have no hope for the future due to failed crops. Br Karuna and his team have taken the initiative to help about 5000 people with essential and immediate requirements as part of the Disaster Management Programme, sponsored by the Brahma Kumaris and Global Hospital.
Over the past couple of months, Shantivan played the roles of both Gyan Sarovar and Pandav Bhawan; the torrential rainfall at the end of July resulted in damage to the road that goes up the mountain, and thereby limited the traffic upwards and downwards. This is why programmes where shifted to Shantivan but everyone managed the change with love and tireless cooperation.
Some of you may have also heard about Shantivan having welcomed around 1400 senior cardiologists and physicians, and 200 Senior Nurses connected with Cardiology Care from all over India and 40 other countries, from 3-6 September 2015 for their 10th World Congress on Clinical Preventive Cardiology and Imaging. The most prominent individuals on Organising Team were Dr HK Chopra (President, National Cardiological Society of India and Organizing Chairman, WCCPCI), Dr Navin C. Nanda (Professor of Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease and Int President, WCCPCI), USA, Dr SK Parashar (Chairman, Scientific Committee of WCCPCI; the Committee of Hosts was led by Dr Partap Midha, Dr Satish Gupta (Secretary-General, WCCPCI), BK Nirwair and many distinguished doctors who have been connected with the Brahma Kumaris for a very long time.
As a mark of gratitude for having had permission to conduct the past 6 Congresses on Brahma Kumaris Campus, the Organising Committee of WCCPCI resolved to help set up a Multi-Speciality Hospital at Talheti, Abu Road. The Global Hospital and Research Centre Trust would provide over 5 acres of land near Shivmani Senior Citizens' Home for this purpose. Most of the senior members of the Congress from USA, South America, England, Kazakhstan, Sri Lanka, and dignitaries from India, joined together for the Foundation-Stone Laying Ceremony held at 10.30am on 3 September 2015. It will be run by the Global Hospital & Research Centre as a "World Centre of Clinical & Preventive Cardiology and Emergency Services."
Brahmins are now looking forward to our annual get-togethers in Madhuban. The double foreigner season starts on 30 September with a Guest Retreat for participants from Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions. Dadi Jankiji travelled up the mountain this morning to be with the family in Gyan Sarovar and Pandav Bhawan, and meet with the guests.
We've had a brief but good rainy season in this part of India, and we hope that all of Baba's meetings would carry on smoothly as per the plan in drama. Those of you who have planned to come meet Avyakt BapDada and the Madhuban family are most welcome.
Wishing you the very best for a very, very joyous Navratri and fulfilling Dasshera!!
With Baba's love,

200 Kumaris Dedicate Their Lives to Spiritual Service (Samarpan Samaroh) at Brahma Kumaris Headquarters
9 August 2015
Abu Road, Shantivan, 4 August. This was the alokik scene at the headquarters of the Brahma Kumaris, where more than 200 kumaris tied the knot of their life with beloved Shiva. Addressing the gathering on this occasion, Dadi Janki, the Administrative Head of the Brahma Kumaris, said that the Supreme Soul is not just our mother and father, but all our relationships are with Him. A marriage is for the benefit of one family, but this surrender ceremony is for the benefit of the world and for making human life into a divine life through which humanity can be shown the path of truth. If we imbibe the teachings given by the Supreme Soul, she said, our life will become elevated.
The Additional Administrative Head of the Brahma Kumaris, Dadi Ratan Mohini, said that people of the world celebrate marriages but we celebrate surrender.
Br Mruthyunjay and Br Karuna, Br Bhupal, Sr Mohini of Madhuban and Sr Munni as well as many other senior brothers are sisters also addressed the gathering and wished a bright future to all the kumaris and hoped that these sisters will walk the spiritual path and reveal the Supreme Soul.

Message from Brother Nirwair on 5 June
7 June 2015
To most beloved Avyakt BapDada's Noore Ratno (Jewels of Light),
My dear Dadi Jankiji, Dadi Gulzarji and all the divine sisters and brothers of this great Brahmin family,
Please accept multi-million fold hearty-godly love and remembrances from Shantivan.
I am very happy to inform everyone that my journey for health benefit of over 2 months is over! The experience during this journey has been so wonderful.
On one side, there was the concern of our dear brothers Dr Partapbhai, Dr Banarsibhai, Sister Yogini, Dr Ashokbhai and others, then the help I received from Avyakt Bapdada through Dadi Gulzarji, then Dadi Jankiji's and Dadi Ratan Mohini's loving attention, plus the powerful vibrations in meditation at all the Centres... all of this has touched my heart.
How can I forget Dadi Jankiji specially visiting the hospital in Ahmedabad daily for three days and having ruh-rihan for an hour, and also again visiting before leaving for London… such affectionate gestures on Dadiji's part are so encouraging that a patient forgets about the health problems he is going through!
Dadi Gulzarji was always been so concerned about my health, and readily available to channel Baba's blessings to me.
I am indebted to the Zone-Incharges, RCs, Senior Teachers of Bharat and abroad, and students of all the Centres for being so kind to have had collective meditation specially for my good health. Baba's blessings received directly on 10 April at Vile Parle Centre, keep coming to mind and refreshing me, for which I thankful to Neeluben and Yoginiben, who were so kind to have organised Baba's programme in Mumbai.
In Mumbai, Meeraben, Nehaben were so helpful and in Ahmedabad: Sarla Didi, Chandrikaben, Kamalben, Bhartiben, and Dr Mukesh, Dr Uresh, and others from Memnagar Centre showered their love all the time during the recuperation phase.
I can understand how much love each one of you have for this soul... I don't think I will be able to live up to your expectations in returning the same, because after going through health problems the physical activity will perhaps be a restricted for a while. However I express my gratitude in million-fold.
It is now mango season in Bharat, and Madhuban is fortunate that sisters and brothers from the South, Mumbai and Gujarat and other places have been sending tons of mangoes to share all around. We Niwasis feel so blessed that the whole family remains so concerned about Madhuban.
Again with all my love and best wishes,
In Baba's yaad,

Nirwair Bhaiji's Return to Shantivan
3 June 2015
To Baba's beautiful family in Bharat and foreign lands,
Special greetings from Madhuban!
As you are aware, our dear brother Nirwairbhai has not been so well and was away for treatment since end of March, firstly at Mumbai and then Ahmedabad. He was looked after by a good team of Physicians and Surgeons, assisted by competent Nursing Staff. The loving, powerful vibrations of the divine Family both at Bombay and Ahmedabad supported him well.
He is feeling good and endured the car journey from Ahmedabad to Shantivan, on 1 June. He returned home after 65 days, and is cheerful and stable as usual, and almost pain-free with medication. There is just a bit of discomfort while getting up/sitting down. He still has to use Lumbo-Sacral support, but his appetite has improved and he is slowly regaining some of the lost weight.
On arrival at Mahadani Cottage,Shantivan, he was welcomed by some of the Seniors and Madhuban family with bouquets and garlands, as is the Brahmin custom, followed by Toli.
He is still on antibiotics and his usual medications for the Heart and Thyroid. Doctors have advised him to have a limited number of Visitors, as recovering from a major illness does require some caution. So we share a humble request to everyone to please observe visiting hours. If anyone has a cold, cough or other respiratory infection, please avoid meeting him till you have recovered completely. He still needs good rest so we appreciate your cooperation.
In Baba's loving yaad,
B.K. Dr Partap

It was beautiful to have Dadi Janki come up the mountain on 20th morning, and we were able to have class with her for about an hour around 12 noon, in the Meditation Hall of Gyan Sarovar. Harmony Hall was being decorated for the evening celebration, and so 600 double foreigners squeezed into the Meditation Hall but it was a very warm, loving and intimate atmosphere. Everyone really enjoyed Dadi's sharing and afterwards there were beautiful scenes of love with many of the instruments.
In the evening, we had a very, very beautiful programme of honoring Dadi's 100th year. You may have seen it on Peace of Mind TV and probably a fuller report of this will be written and sent. Dadi is planning to stay in Gyan Sarovar for a couple of days before going downstairs to attend meetings with the Senior Teachers of Bharat.

Madhuban News from Sr. Jayanti on 8th March
11 March 2015
It was wonderful to have the three Dadis together in Pandav Bhawan for 4-5 days. Yesterday at around noon, Dadi Gulzar met with the Madhuban Niwasis and then the two Dadis met together in the front garden just by the Tower of Peace, and they had a lovely photo session with many of us. Dadi Janki then went to Gyan Sarovar for a few days.
On 7th evening, Dadi Janki had a session with the Global Hospital family. Her class had been scheduled for the 6th evening, but it had got cancelled. They had made a variety of things to celebrate Dadi's birthday, and so it was a very lovely gathering with lots of love and a showering of gifts.
At night, Dadi had chitchat with the sisters of Dadi's Cottage. There had been a Silence Bhatti that the sisters had been having for two days. On the 8th, Dadi will be attending the Latino Retreat. I myself had a session with the 150 participants of this Retreat yesterday, and they are very, very receptive. They've actually come from around 18 countries.
10 March Madhuban News (35+ retreat and Dadi's Gems) from London's Sr Maureen
11 March 2015
News from Sr Maureen - 10 March
Dadi continues to serve in her amazing way. Sometimes her health is up and down but overall she is doing really well. As we experienced in London she really is the embodiment of love and she speaks of this all the time. She told us: now is the time to become complete with Godly love.
As you may have heard, it was cold on arrival and is still chilly in the mornings and evenings, but warming up now. We even had torrential rain one day! But now the skies are clear and blue.
The first few days was spent in preparing for the retreat for those over 35 years in Gyan. Amongst the participants were 8 jewels who were visiting Madhuban after 20 or 30 years! They were deeply touched. We created some beautiful banners for the meditation hall (the venue for the three day retreat) and for Om Shanti Bhawan (the venue for the celebration on the 4th March). Two collages of photos of Dadi Janki, a collage of photos from the early days of service and poster showing the world map and where centres were first established on each continent. The retreat itself was lovely, Dadi herself was very touched seeing the group. It was for Dadi as much as for any of us. We had discussions about the early days, about our stage, about the future and each day Dadi met us at 12 noon and at 7pm. On the evening of the 3rd March we each had personal drishti from Dadi and afterwards they played Dadi's favourite 'chalte, chalte' and Dadi danced with us!
Some of the jewels which touched me:
We have come to the door of the Bestower.
Hanuman is Mahavir and he set Lanka alight with his tail - his tail are the vibrations with which we serve the world. Our vibrations reach far and wide.
Forgive and forget; do not forget the past and do not have any expectations for the future.
It is not that I am remembering Baba, but I am drawing on Baba's power and it is His power that is making my body function.
This is not a question of faith - it is practical!
Don't have complaints about yourself!
Baba has given me this part and has created this game for me to show who He is.
Just after the meeting a small group met Dadi Gulzar and she shared how they have passed through many tests and that the main thing is that when a test comes, do not become careless at that time or think that it happens to everyone, but at that time especially have a deep conversation with Baba and have victory.
I asked Dadi Janki a question today: when there are challenges, as Baba says, you keep quiet and try to keep a loving stage, but inside you feel like you are avoiding doing something. What is the right thing to do? She asked someone else, what answer would you give and they said: face it with peace. Dadi said, to face it means that I have felt it inside. When something comes to me I am the same afterwards, I do not change inside. Make your nature unshakeable and immovable. To face something means that you have a delicate nature. These things come to all of us. No two human beings have the same part. The Gyan of the drama is very deep.
Special Madhuban Retreat for 180 Double Foreigner Sisters and Brothers from 27 Countries Who Are Over 35 Years in Gyan

Each spiritual jewel has led a fantastic life of commitment, renunciation and service and all are very pleased to have this opportunity of silence, gyan chit-chat and closeness with Dadiji.
Their sessions began on 1 March evening, and were held in Meditation Hall of Pandav Bhawan. The retreat culminated with a big birthday celebration on 4th March evening in Om Shanti Bhawan.

Sr Jayanti Reports on the Special Retreat for 35+ Years in Gyan BKs & Dadi's Centennial Celebration in Pandav Bhawan
8 March 2015
On 5th March the three Dadis had photographs taken with the Madhuban Niwasis on the steps of the Meditation Hall, and as you can imagine the Niwasis were very, very happy. After that, Dadi Janki came to join the +35 group, even though some had already left. Many had shared their experiences earlier in a session with Sr Waddy. Then a couple of people shared with Dadi being present, and melted everyone's hearts. Dadi then shared with the group.
In the evening, we had meditation in Om shanti Bhawan with Dadi after Didi Sudesh had taken class with the double foreigners. After meditation, Dadi met with the whole gathering, the +35 group, the other double foreigners, Madhuban Niwasis and sevadharis. After this, Dadi went on a wheel-chair tour of Sukdham, where the front courtyard had been transformed into an elegant dining room, and round to the back where they were making hot tandori rotis for all the double foreigners. Dadi gave drishti to the whole group and even tasted some of the things that were being prepared. Dadi then returned to the Tower of Peace. Dadi Gulzar happened to be on her evening walk at the time, and so the two Dadis met in front of the Tower of Peace with a lot of love. They also met together after dinner for chitchat. It was a very lovely scene.
On the 6th morning, Dadi Ratan Mohini celebrated Holi with the gathering after class in Om Shanti Bhawan. In Gyan Sarovar, we also had a small celebration. The senior teachers began the dancing and had the whole group up dancing too! Holi has been honoured in a very lovely way.
Yesterday morning was a very sweet conversation with the three Dadis. Firstly, it was with Dadi Ratan Mohini about all her early experiences about going to Japan and London, and then with Dadi Janki. Dadi Gulzar also joined us briefly and was then there for the gift ceremony also. It was very beautiful to see the love of the Dadis when they are together.
In the evening, there was a special programme for Dadi Janki's centennial year which everyone enjoyed. I think Dadi also enjoyed it but of course she said, don't remember me just remember the One!
There was also a great skit by Brothers Yogesh, Neville, David Goodman and Minesh and they acted out the five forms that Dadi's right index finger takes on to guide, inspire, and transform us: the first where she points upwards to remember only the One; the second pointing towards Brahma Baba to follow his footsteps when we have to make decisions in situations; thirdly towards the self when it comes to transformation ‘I first'; fourthly to point to others when it comes to keeping others ahead on the field of service, and fifthly the ‘wagging finger' of Dadi which comes when we need firmer handling and helps us have realisations. It was great fun!
The retreat for those over 35 years with Baba has been happening and in the morning after the Appreciative Enquiry style conversations that happened, Sr Maureen and Sr Sudha interviewed Dadi Janki, and what she shared was very lovely. Dadi then gave toli to all the participants. In the evening was the special Yoga Bhatti for the retreat participants with the RCs. From 7pm, Dadi gave drishti to each one individually and toli. Didi Nirmala gave everyone a very beautiful box of fruits and nuts that had been prepared. It was a very beautiful evening, with everyone taking benefit. At the end, it was lovely to have Dadi dance with many of the group. Everybody was clapping and dancing, and Dadi danced with a few in the front.

News from Sr Jayanti - 21 February
23 Febuary 2015
On Thursday, Dadi Janki was in Pandav Bhawan and then came to have a chat in Gyan Sarovar with the senior teachers from across the world. In the evening I shared the essence of the things we heard in the morning with a small group, and then Dadi added all the things I missed out which was great. On Friday morning I left for Amritsar and arrived on 20th afternoon. I went from Shantivan which was quite warm and Gyan Sarovar which was very pleasant (spring-like) to bitter winter. Here, in the morning, they'd just had hailstones and the night before the same, so it was very, very cold. There is a large group of double foreigners who have come to join the Future of Power programme. It's actually the largest group of double foreigners that's joined any of the Future of Power programmes.
On 21st, we had the Future of Power Dialogue in Amritsar in Holiday Inn, which is a very lovely place. There were 48 top-level people from all professional backgrounds, including one of the main priests from the Golden Temple. The Dialogue continued till 2.30pm. At 4.30pm we had class at the Retreat Centre, Vishwa Shanti Bhawan, where we are all staying. This was for around 250 souls from Amritsar and neighbouring places, and it went on till 6.30pm.

18th Febuary News from Sr. Jayanti - Dadi in Gyan Sarovar and Pandav Bhawan
19 Febuary 2015
The double foreigners put together a lovely celebration for Dadi's 99th birthday on the 18th morning in Gyan Sarovar. We had Chrissy from Australia narrate the story of Dadi's life, sisters from Canada present a dance, and brothers from Australia share beautiful music. Dadi was pleased to be with the global family.
The scene at the celebration's end was very touching. After the cutting of the cake, Dadi was taken in a wheelchair across the whole stage so that everybody could take drsihti. They then brought Dadi down into the audience, and took her in the wheelchair up one aisle of Harmony Hall and then down another aisle, so that everybody could get close up drishti. It was a memorable scene.
Though the plan had been to return to Shantivan after lunch, Dadi suddenly decided that she wanted to come to Pandav Bhawan in the afternoon, and stay the evening for class. So Dadi did come to meet everyone in Om Shanti Bhawan for evening meditation and short class. Dadi shared she really wanted to stay the night, which was met with applause and big smiles!
Dadi will return to Shantivan on Thursday and Dadi plans to travel to Ahmedabad to be present for the Opening of the new Diamond Lotus House on 22nd morning, Baba's new accommodation especially for double foreigners, close to Lotus House.
News of Sr. Jayanti's trip to Madhuban
17 Febuary 2015
I arrived in Abu, met both Dadis briefly and came up the mountain and there was a class in the evening. On Sunday Dadi Janki came up the mountain to meet the 1000 double foreignerswho are here. I came down the mountain to take the Teachers class in Shantivan and Dadi came down the mountain after taking class and giving toil to about 700 of the DFs and Sudesh Didi carried on afterwards.
Sunday was a silence day in Gyan Sarovar and of course it was the 3rd Sunday of the month and that was very beautiful. It began with Sister Mohini from New York doing a Skype call with all of us and sharing her insights and experiences through her period of intense tapasya in New York. She shared beautiful insights into silence and it closed in the evening with powerful meditation but also with many angels holding candles coming up the aisles and lining the stage. It was a very beautiful scene. We are all preparing internally for Baba's meeting on Monday.

News of Our Beloved Dadis Visit to Pandav Bhawan on the 18th
20 January 2015
Since the early morning hours of 18th morning, as expected, hundreds of Brahmins have been silently taking benefit from the four pilgrimage places and singing praise of our fortune of being sustained by Brahma Baba in this lifetime.
Dadi Ratan Mohiniji had come up last night and was present to read Baba's Murli on 18th morning to a very packed Om Shanti Bhawan. This was followed by Bhog offering, hearing Baba's message and then coming down and encircling Tower of Peace to pay our deepest respects to Brahma Baba.
We had a delicious breakfast of the traditional carrot-milk (always prepared for 18 January), and fruits (banana, apple, dates, coconut pieces).
At around 10.30am we started getting news that Dadi Jankiji is half way up the mountain! Our brothers prepared the courtyard to ensure that Dadiji could be steered in the best way through the four pilgrimage places, amidst 300-400 people who were taking their turns patiently. Everyone was truly elated on seeing Dadiji. There have been a few times in the past years when Dadiji has not been able to come up on 18 January due to cold weather and delicate health, so seeing her here was such a blessing: BapDada's first gift to us. After visiting the Hut, Dadiji shared that she wished to visit Baba's Bhandara (Kitchen).
While she set off to see the Bhandara, Dadi Gulzarji drives into the courtyard at 11.30am! That was Baba's second gift. Dadi Gulzarji went on her round of the 4 pilgrimage places while Dadi Jankiji and Dadi Ratan Mohiniji returned from the Kitchen and settled down in History Hall in Baba's sweet, silent remembrance.
It was beautiful to have Dadi Gulzarji join the two Dadis in History Hall. There was very sweet exchange of drishti, hugs, smiles and chit-chat amongst the Dadis for few minutes. Dadi Gulzarji then left for Shantivan, while Dadi Jankiji came to her favourite residence, Indraprasth (by Tower of Peace) to have breakfast at 12.15pm! She enjoyed the milk and a few dates. Dadi Janki shared how she was getting the deep pull since Amritvela to come up to Pandav Bhawan. She had shared this with Dadi Gulzarji who was saying she probably won't visit Pandav Bhawan because of it being Baba's day. But Dadi Jankiji was amused that Dadi Gulzarji decided to come up half an hour later. So it was Baba's energy and love that brought the Dadis comfortably up despite the delicate state of their chariots. That undoubtedly was proof of their commitment, dedication and love for Brahma Baba, and Shiv Baba of course.
Dadi Jankiji also visited Baba's Museum and Gyan Sarovar before returning to Shantivan.
Loving Sentiments for 18th January from BK Nirwair, Madhuban
16 January 2015
Dear divine sisters and brothers across Bharat and the globe,
Please accept hearty greetings of peace and Baba's love.
We have been observing inner quiet from the beginning of January. Most of the sisters and brothers have been very focused on setting the past into the past, and rejuvenating the self spiritually for which collective efforts in meditation and individual attention on karma yoga (yoga in action) have proved to be very beneficial for one and all. It seems like 2015 will be very auspicious for all of us as the clarity of thought about making spiritual endeavours is crystal-clear after listening to the past Avyakt Murlis since October 2014.
Br Raju (Murli Department, Madhuban), on advice of Dadi Jankiji, has brought out a publication containing some of the Avyakt Murlis to be studied and imbibed through the Year. Dadi Jankiji, after returning from Ahemdabad on 13th in better health, was very eager to share those Elevated Versions in other languages and so this has come to you already in English from Jasuben of London.
Our prime focus for this month of January has been Sakar Baba's image of tapasya as an ‘Easy Rajyogi', which would enable us to lead natural lives of being ever-immersed in God's love. The more we have interest in observing the image of togetherness with the One, the more we develop deep feelings of nearness and similarity/ equality with Brahma Baba. As we heard from Baba's versions time to time, He wishes for us to become natural yogis and not hatha yogis or ‘hard yogis'! Just the mantra of two words would serve the purpose: Remain focused and determined while pursuing one's goal. There is no need to falter at any step when we have the Supreme Guide and His Guidance with us. Rather, we should remain ever-elevated and intoxicated in super-sensuous joy and accomplish our goal to become like Sakar Brahma Baba.
This communication is also to convey the good news that our Dadi Jankiji returned to Shantivan few days back in much better health, after receiving treatment from Dr Sudhir Shah, Senior Neuro-Physician, Dr Sudanshu Patwari, Senior Gastro-Enterologist and Dr Shiraz Munshi, Pain Management Specialist. We trust the present medication will aide Dadiji in leading a very meaningful life, as in the past, to serve humanity as she so greatly desires. In our chit-chats, Dadiji had been requested to record her memoirs of 78 years year-wise (if possible!) so that we have an additional record of Yagya History. She is quite enthusiastic about dictating the same, and has already started sharing stories in her classes!
With Godly love, remembrances and blessings from respected Dadi Jankiji, Dadi Gulzarji, Dadi Ratan Mohiniji and the divine family members of Madhuban,
Giving the Return of the Avyakt Sustenance: A Message from Dadi Janki, plus: A Tapaswi Life Booklet for 2015, The Year of Tapasya
16 January 2015
To BapDada's Dearest Divine family across the globe,
Greetings of love and peace for the powerful Avyakt month of January and the Year of Tapasya.
Now, in 2015, we are celebrating the newness of the New Year with January as the special Avyakt month.
This year, I would like us all to celebrate not just the month of January, but the whole of 2015 as the Year of Tapasya. By taking power and blessings from this year we can imbibe the qualifications according to our aim.
Our beloved Brahma Baba attained his stage of perfection in the month of January and became a resident of the subtle region. For 46 years, Brahma Baba has come from the subtle region to the corporeal world to make us complete and perfect. Brahma Baba's desire is to make us the same as himself, and he decorates us with so many teachings to give us the avyakt experience.
Our Beloved Avyakt BapDada has given us avyakt sustenance for so long, and now is the time to give the return by following in the footsteps of Father Brahma. Definitely have the aim to become the same as Brahma Baba. For this, let each one have the determined thought to remain introverted and free from waste.
Let every Brahmin child keep a new aim to do intense meditation to experience the different stages of tapasya. This small booklet has been printed with this in mind to support your practice of tapasya. Every fortnight, practise and experience a new stage, by doing this collectively the vibrations of so many pure souls will help to transform the tamoguni atmosphere in the world. As we practise in the gathering the atmosphere at every service place will become ayvakt and powerful, through which the revelation of the one Father, the Sun of Knowledge will definitely take place.
My pure wishes are that each and every one of Baba's children becomes an instrument to reveal BapDada through their face and behaviour. Become an image that grants visions
and enable the drums of victory to beat. I am sure that each one of you will keep this aim as you study this book carefully and become the embodiment of the points.
With all good wishes for my divine family
In Godly service
Note: We have only just received the Hindi manuscript to be able to translate the first four months for us to collectively work on the homework given to us by BapDada. The rest will follow soon. (We have already begun homework for month of January as these points are the at the end of each day's murli and have therefore, not included the points for the month of January with this.)

Message from Nirwairbhai Regarding Dadi Janki's Current Health Status
8 January 2015, 12:30pm
Dear divine sisters and brothers of Bharat and abroad,
Please accept hearty Godly love and remembrances, along with loving greetings from Dadi Jankiji.
Perhaps you would have heard that Dadi Jankiji needed to consult her doctor in connection with her medication, for which reason she was requested to be in Baba's home, Lotus House, Ahmedabad for a few days. She accepted Sister Jayanti's suggestion to come over, and has been in Lotus House since 7 January evening. Dr Sudhir Shah, a very senior Neuro-physician who has always had great love and regard for Dadiji, came to meet her on 7th night at 9.30pm and spent quite some time looking at Dadiji's old problem of hyper-acidity and a bit of change in medication.
Looking at Dadiji's present state of observing more silence that normally seen, he advised us to put her on intravenous drip simply to manage her energy level. He has also advised nil food by mouth for now so that she takes 24-hours rest to help bring back the digestion system to order.
In Lotus House, Dadiji is taking complete rest with our sisters: Hansaben, Jayantiben, Pravinaben, Shrideviben making her feel very comfortable. It took a while for her to sleep last night, but she is now more restful.
I have shared with Dadiji the loving remembrances of all those who had telephoned me, and Dadiji responds by saying, "Do convey my loving remembrances to all our sisters and brothers of the divine family."
We hope Dadiji will be back on the rails in a couple of days, so that she can return to Shantivan soon. We request everyone to continue to send Dadiji their healing and powerful vibrations of love in Baba's remembrance.
With Baba's love,
(from Lotus House, Ahd)

Madhuban New Year's Day News from Sister Jayanti
1 January 2015
We started the New Year with Thursday Bhog in Shantivan and a beautiful message from Baba about love and being happy all the time. Then around 11.30am we went into a celebration for Mohiniben's 74th birthday which was a sweet, lovely experience.
In the evening was a very grand celebration for Dadi Janki. It was meant to be simple but it turned out to be quite splendid. There must have been around 3,000 people who came to Conference Hall for the celebration according to the number of picnic plates that were prepared. There was literally only standing room at the back of the hall and by the doors. People were also seated in the passages since we had the families from Pandav Bhawan, Gyan Sarovar and Global Hospital come down to join the celebrations.
Dadi Gulzar spoke about how we all take inspiration from Dadi's courage in conquering whatever happens in terms of the body. Nirwairbhai spoke beautifully of the service Dadi has done from the very beginning and continues to do even now. Rameshbhai shared his experiences of the early days with Dadi in Mumbai and also in London, so many sweet moments were shared. There were several other tributes by seniors.
I shared the dream that Dadi had had of service in a place where the family was ready to become Baba's and be instruments for service, and what Dadi had seen in her dream had been Aunty Betty's and Uncle Steve's home in Georgetown, Guyana. When I had arrived, I recognised it as the same place she had described.
Dadi was really not very well on the 1st, but managed to join the celebrations in the morning as well as the evening. Dadi shared beautifully both times.
All good wishes for a very happy New Year to each and everyone!
