Sudeshben and myself conducted sessions in the first Bhatti of Shantivan Niwasis, and now also in the second Bhatti which started on Monday. Many of the senior Madhuban Niwasis are also doing the same.
News from Jayantiben in Shantivan: 10 July 2020
It’s been very, very busy these last few days that I am going to be in Bharat, so every half hour gets filled. On Wednesday evening, I was invited to Manmohini Auditorium to meet the residents of Manmohini Van. There are usually around 200, and I think there must have been about 150+ present. It was very lovely to be there. It was my first time back after the NC/CC Retreat in February, and so it was a chance to thank all of them as they’ve done so much for us. There was Meditation, Songs, and Welcome Speeches, a very short Class and Toli. They all had a picnic afterwards. I had to rush back to Shakti Bhawan for my next call abroad.
On Thursday, 9 July, we had a very special ceremony for a small number of people. This was to lay the Foundation Stone for Shakti Sthamb: The Pillar of Power, Dadi Janki’s Memorial, and we had the Dadis, Nirwairbhai, and Munniben there. Hansaben climbed a ladder to go to the bottom of the pit which was several feet deep to lay the urn of ashes. Just as they would have the ceremony to lay the foundation stone for a building, they conducted the ritual of adding different ingredients of the produce of the earth: rice, pulses (dals), jaggery and many others too. After that, the bricks were laid. It was very lovely to see the Dadis there, and of course the brothers who are involved in the construction work.
On the 10th, we met the person who is going to do the Marble Work. He is from the same family who built the Tower of Peace, and also Prakash Sthamb (Tower of Light: Dadi Prakashmani’s Memorial). So we are now working with the grandson, and it was his grandfather who had built the Tower of Peace. It was lovely meeting all the generations, and seeing that continuity.
The second Bhatti for Shantivan Niwasis finished on 9th night. The third Bhatti starts on the 11th.

I was able to go just for half a day to the mountain on the 6th, essentially to say goodbye to everyone. First stop was Pandav Bhawan, where I was able to read Murli in Om Shanti Bhawan. This is a venture that started recently, after 3 months of having Murli in Meditation Hall, having taken all the required permissions. A few hundred seats have been arranged in terms of physical distancing in the Hall. After Murli, everyone received a mango from the big tree in Baba’s garden. I met several people, and said goodbye to Shashiben and Sheiluben.
I then came to Gyan Sarovar to meet and say goodbye to Dr Nirmalaben and Sudeshben. Sudeshben plans to stay for a little while longer here.
Next stop was the Global Hospital where I went to see Br Brij Mohan. He is in excellent spirits, and is considering himself a resident of the Subtle Region, and needs to come down to the physical world from time to time. He is enjoying his time in recovery and recuperation and is engaged in subtle experiments with Baba.
I then returned to Shantivan. 7th morning, I was able to conduct Class with the 2nd Bhatti for Shantivan Niwasis. 7th evening, we had a Session online for Call of the Time participants.

On the 5th, we were able to go to a place called Pageri, which is about 20kms away from Shantivan. It’s a very rural area, and there is an agricultural space that’s been given to Baba by a BK who had purchased it, and then gifted it to Baba since there was fresh water that was available, at a time when Shantivan was desperate for water.
We were able to enjoy fruits there, and the company of the brothers who take care of this place. It was a short and sweet enjoyable outing.
The second Bhatti for Shantivan Niwasis started today, and souls are really keen to participate in these Bhattis.

Br Brij Mohan returned from Zydus Hospital, Ahmedabad, straight to Global Hospital, Mt Abu just for a period of a few days’ recovery and rest. But he seems to be in good health again. We are looking forward to having him back in Shantivan/Madhuban.
From 1 July, a series of 5 Bhattis will be starting in Shantivan, for groups of 90 people each, and will carry on for 4 days, with different people leading the Bhatti. Baba’s room of course is going to be available for all, but people can also join one of the groups. The Bhattis will be held in Dadi Prakashmani Training Centre, so it will be a new experience for me also to be in that particular Building. I’ve been there a few times, but not so often.
Report and Session Replays: Administrators' Wing E-Conference, 26- 28 June
30 June 2020
The Administrators' Wing of the Rajyoga Education & Research foundation held an E-Conference on the topic of this Conference was “Facing Challenges Through Spirituality.” Sh. Arif Mohammad Khan, Honorable Governor of Kerala and Sh. G. Kishan Reddy, Honorable Minister of State, Home Affairs, Govt. of India inaugurated the conference on 26 June 2020, 8- 9 pm.
Honorable Governor Sh. Arif Mohammad Khan, in his remarks, appreciated the efforts of the Brahma Kumaris in bringing positive change in human lifestyle, through Rajayoga, since 1936. The coronavirus pandemic has forced us to have a relook at our lifestyles, vision and dialogue. Every challenge brings an opportunity. The role of the administrators becomes very important in challenging times. An able administrator must have moral, spiritual and yogic strength. This is possible only through spiritual empowerment.
Honorable Minister of State, Home Affairs, Sh. G. Kishan Reddy applauded the Brahma Kumaris, for its contribution towards the society at the time of the pandemic and also otherwise, for the activities carried by the organization at various levels. He also shared his experience with the organization and urged all the countrymen to come together for facing the current challenge.
BK Nirwair, Secretary General of the Brahma Kumaris, said that fear and anxiety, due to the pandemic, decreases people’s immunity. With spiritual awakening we reach a higher level of conscience that removes fear and anxiety. Elevated thinking and self study gives power to handle challenges.
BK Brij Mohan, Additional Secretary General of the Brahma Kumaris, said that the root cause of today’s problems is an imbalanced lifestyle. This can be rectified through spirituality. Keeping materialism supreme has made us forget spirituality. This can be found again through yoga.
BK Asha, Chairperson of Administrators' Wing, in her speech, said that we must accept all challenges and view them as opportunities. Every challenge tests our inner strength. A spirit of cooperation and mutual appreciation helps solve many problems. Spirituality gives faith in one’s own self.
BK Harish, HQ Coordinator of Administrators' Wing welcomed all the participants of the Inaugural Session and BK Avdhesh, National Coordinator of Administrators' Wing took everyone on a unique and practical meditation experience during the Inauguration. BK Urmil, Delhi Zonal Coordinator of Administrators' Wing successfully coordinated the Inaugural session.
H.E. Roger Gopal, High Commissioner of Trinidad and Tobago to India, said that we must all come together to face the challenge of coronavirus. This E-Conference will give a new direction to administrators. Positive lifestyle gives peace and harmony.
Sh. Ravi Capoor, Secretary in the Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India appreciated Brahma Kumaris for working selflessly for the benefit of the people and administrators. He shared his personal experience about clear thinking and decision making and said that commitment, integrity and passion lead to clear thinking.
Sh. Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha, Secretary in the Ministry of AYUSH, Govt. of India praised Brahma Kumaris for working to ensure wellness of the administrators and health workers of the country and appreciated the programme's moto to help them cope with stressful situations, take right decisions timely and thus enhance their performance through optimal potential realization. He quoted Bhagavad Gita and said that Yoga puts an end to all sorrows of life when it is rightly practiced.
Sh. K. Rajaraman, Additional Secretary in the Finance Ministry, Govt. of India, talked about the role of people’s representatives during a crisis like covid 19. He apprised the audience about the many public welfare schemes (plans) by the Government. This E-Conference will inspire the administrators to perform better.
Sh. P C Berwal, Special Secretary, Home, Govt. of Rajasthan, emphasised the role of spirituality, which is the uniqueness of our country, to win over the negative influences and take better decisions, remain enthusiastic in difficult situations, and also help others to out of negativities and sorrows. He said that we all must ensure that spirituality becomes a part of our lives.
Dr. Rajneesh Dube, Jt. Secretary, Health Ministry, Govt. of Uttar Pradesh, said that spirituality is the best method to handle a crisis like this pandemic. He had asked the Brahma Kumaris sisters to hold a special program for his department, which gave new energy to everyone.
Kiran Mani, MD, Google, while speaking in the session of this E-Conference, said that spirituality makes us delve deep within ourselves and put problems in perspective.
BK Jayanti, BK Radha, BK Urmil, BK Poonam, BK Laxmi, Dr. Mohit Gupta and BK Bharat also shared their views on the topics.
BK Rajni (Japan), BK Savita (Raipur), BK Sunanda (Kolhapur), BK Shobha (Goa), BK Leena (Bhubaneswar), BK Neha (Ahmedabad) and BK Sharada (Mysuru) helped everyone experience bliss and God's love through Rajyoga Meditation. And BK Madhu, BK Vidhatri & BK Husain effectively coordinated the sessions.

On Wednesday, 24 June afternoon, we were able to go to Gyan Sarovar for a short ceremony at Dadi Janki Park with the Sub-Divisional Magistrate of Mount Abu, who has been promoted and will be leaving at some point. This was to lay the foundation for a canopy where around 100 BKs can gather in the Park. The SDM had specially wanted to leave behind something as a memorial for his time in Abu, and so wanted to lay his brick. It was a chance to visit the Park, and everything was blooming beautifully. Big mangoes were dangling from tiny little trees, and it was lovely to be there.
On Thursday morning, I had the opportunity of reading Murli in Pandav Bhawan. Class has been taking place in Meditation Hall since end of March. Shashiben then offered Bhog which was honouring Mama, and Mama’s qualities.
At 11am, there was class in GS with the Niwasis. In the afternoon from 3-3.45pm, there was class with the Staff of Global Hospital. They meet together every Thursday afternoon apparently, and it was a gathering of BKs, friends of BKs, Doctors and Nurses too. The topic was ‘Yoga for Professionals’.
I then returned to Shantivan later on Thursday afternoon.

Today is the 3rd month anniversary of Dadi Janki becoming avyakt. On 26th, there was a big clean-up taking place in Shakti Bhawan to prepare for today. There have been preparations since early morning: Munniben and Kishorebhai (Toli Kitchen SV) organised for 8 varieties of sweet tolis, and 4 varieties of savouries and there are more things on their way. A variety of mangoes and a basket full of flowers from the Solar Plant have also come for the Bhog Offering.
The atmosphere feels like preparing for Avyakt BapDada’s meeting, so it’s one of Yoga but also of great love and in a way, joy. I know that many other Centres are also preparing to offer Bhog for Dadi’s third month.

"Peace Of Mind TV" Channel listed as one of the most viewed Spiritual Channel
27 June 2020
Om shanti Brothers & Sisters, Accept Godly greeting of Peace and Love.
We are delighted to inform you that Baba’s Channel Peace Of Mind Tv has been recognised as one the most viewed Spiritual Channel in the country by the Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC), India (It is the world's largest television measurement science industry-body.)
A renowned News Publication - ‘The Wire’ published an article - “Owned by Corporates, Run by Babas – the Economics Behind India’s Devotional Television” - acknowledging the fact that the Peace Of Mind Tv Channel never focused on monetisation, comparing it with Ramdev’s Channel who, on the contrary, makes a huge turnover through his channels. (As quoted in the article “Ramdev's three media companies together earned around Rs 80 crore during 2017-18”)
Here is what they published: “Another devotional channel – ‘Peace of Mind TV’, – is backed by a religious organisation called Brahma Kumaris. The channel is among the most viewed devotional TV channels, according to BARC data. However, the channel never focused on monetising and is nowhere near Ramdev’s channels and many others in terms of turnover.”
They even mentioned how Sri Sri Ravi Shankar was unable to run their channel successfully and had to shut it within a few years.
(Quoting from the articles: “There is no guarantee for success even for baba-owned TV channels. For example, Sri Sri Ravishankar, famous spiritual leader and founder of the Art of Living Foundation, started Anandam TV with Media Guru Broadcasting Pvt. Ltd. in 2011. It didn’t work out well though, and the channel shut shop within a few years. The information and broadcasting ministry cancelled its licence in September 2018.”)
They have spoken in depth how these sansthas have made huge turnovers over the years through their channels (they state “Sadhna Broadcasting recorded a turnover of Rs 55.2 crore during 2017-18 ...Rachana Television Network earned a total revenue of Rs 68 crore)
They have also briefly explained about the kind of people who own these channels: “The Indian devotional TV industry has three types of owners. The first is a yogi or guru who is interested in starting his own TV channel. The second is a businessman who already has existing media interest and wants to add a religious channel as an additional offering.
The third type of owner is a businessman who usually runs a totally different type of business but happens to be an ardent follower of a spiritual guru, and hence, starts a religious channel to show his gratitude towards his guru.”

55th Ascension Anniversary of Jagadamba Saraswati Observed by Brahma Kumaris HQ
26 June 2020
Mount Abu ( Rajasthan ): The Brahma Kumaris observed the 55th anniversary of their First Administrative Head, Highly Honourable, Most Respected Jagadamba Saraswati (lovingly called ‘Mama‘) with great dedication, love and respect.
On this occasion, Senior Rajayogi BK Shashi and BK Sheilu shared elaborately about the life incidents, teachings, and inspirations of Mateshwari Jagadamba Saraswati (World Mother).
BK Sheilu shared that Mother Jagadamba was an idol of sacrifice, penance and service. Moreover, she surrendered herself for the betterment of mankind and thus set an example before us of how a woman can sacrifice her comforts and play a key role in the enhancement of human values.
Men and women who came into contact with Mother Jagadamba got rid of their anger and depression, bad habits, cruelty and cunningness, false and forfeiting nature, thinking of others, problems, stress and addictions and became helping hands in the upliftment of society.
She also added that Mother Saraswati possessed the powers of the Soul, strength of Remembrance, Divinity, Purity, and Spirituality. With these powers in her, Mother Saraswati attracted everyone like a magnet and saved them from the heat of vices and bad deeds and led them towards divinity. She later stated we all should imbibe the teachings of Mother Saraswati and spread peace, love, compassion, oneness and positive thinking, which would be the real homage we pay to her.
On this occasion, BK Shashi showed light on the life of Mother Jagadamba: It is a matter of pride to say that the extraordinary girl named Om Radha was born in Amritsar, Punjab, in the year 1919. At the tender age of 16 she surrendered her life to the Brahma Kumaris and inspired people of all segments of society in keeping themselves away from vices, weaknesses, and shortcomings. She was always relaxed, fearless and patient even during challenging times. She sacrificed her mortal body at the age of 45 on June 24th, 1965, and dedicated herself to the subtle service of mankind. She always said there is no assurance of this life and so we should use this very effectively, never repeat our mistakes, forget about the past and remember God to nullify your sins and make your impressions (sanskars) divine, pure and flawless.
More About Mama (Mateshwari Jagadamba Saraswati):
Mama’s parents named her Radhe. Her father dealt in the business of Gold, Silver and clarified butter. She lost her father suddenly. Before his death, he suffered a massive loss in his business. After this, Radhe started living with her maternal grandmother in Sindh, Hyderabad, along with her mother and younger sister.
She was a brilliant student, always on top of her class. She took keen interest in dance and music. She liked dressing up in beautiful clothes. She completed her studies until tenth grade.
After the death of her husband, Radhe’s mother and maternal aunt sought solace in Spiritual company. They went to Brahma Baba, the Founder Father of the Brahma Kumaris. Radhe went there along with them. On her very first meeting with Brahma Baba, she felt a strong fatherly connection with him. She decided the course of her life very swiftly after that. At 17 years of age, Radhe decided to dedicate her whole life to the Brahma Kumaris.
From there onwards, she assimilated Godly knowledge in the company of Brahma Baba. She was eventually given the responsibility of the Brahma Kumaris Organization. Being its Motherly figure, and Chief Administrator, she played her part with dedication and success and became ‘Jagadamba’ ( World Mother).
News from Jayantiben in Shantivan: 24 June
26 June 2020
It was a very special programme today to honour Mama’s Day in Shantivan. Dadi Ratan Mohiniji read the Murli of course, and at the time of offering Bhog we had a beautiful line-up on stage with Dadi Ishu, Nirwairbhai and Munniben. The Bhog consisted of 21 varieties of fruits plus many little dishes with lots of goodies for Baba and Mama. In the Bhog Message via Rukmaniben, Mama said she would like Baba to call all her friends, and so all the Advanced Party souls came to join her in the Subtle Region with Baba. Nirwairbhai gave a very powerful class on Mama after the Bhog Message, and Munniben shared what she had learned of Mama from others, as she had come to Baba a year after Mama had become avyakt. A packet of fruits and 4 varieties of tolis were given to the Shantivan Residents, along with substantial Bhog at breakfast time.
At 10am, we had the BKs from the BK Colony come in buses to spend time in Baba’s home on this special day and receive their fruit packet and tolis, followed by BKs from the Trauma Centre. They also listened to Classes from Gitaben and Munniben. So it’s been a very beautiful day with the family.

Today, we were able to visit Nirwairbhai, Bharatbhai and a whole Team of others, together with Hansaben, Deepakbhai and Kumarbhai to finalise the design for Shakti Sthamb: The Tower of Strength, Dadi Janki’s Memorial. It was a sweet meeting where everyone came together and there was consensus very quickly. Nirwairbhai added his own thoughts also. There have been other discussions prior to this, with visits to the site and discussions with the architect. But it now seems to be more or less finalised.
Preparations are also going on for Mama’s Day. Normally there would be large gatherings in Shantivan and Pandav Bhawan, whilst Gyan Sarovar would be hosting the Wing Conferences, but this year it’s lockdown and so smaller families in each place. However, boxes are being packed because toli and a variety of fruits from Madhuban are going to go to Ahmedabad, Delhi, Jaipur, Ajmer, and Mumbai to their Main Centres, and some Centres of Rajasthan too. It’s quite a huge operation that is taking place, but it’s all being done with a lot of love for Mama, and great enthusiasm. Of course, Pandav Bhawan, Gyan Sarovar, Global Hospital are all included, and will receive their toli and fruit tomorrow morning after Bhog is offered on all three campuses to Baba and Mama.

Today was International Yoga Day, Fathers’ Day in the UK, Summer Solstice, and also the Solar Eclipse, so it was a day filled with a lot of omens, which must be good since everything is of benefit to Brahmins. Apparently, the Solar Eclipse lasted from 10am-3pm India time, but it seemed to be just like a normal day.
21 June morning, Sujataben of Global Hospital came to the Conference Hall of Shantivan to conduct an hour of Yoga, with people seated in their chairs comfortably, and finished with the Chant of ‘Om’. We then had the Avyakt Murli of course, so it was a special start to the day.
I myself have been on two live programmes for Int Yoga Day, one recorded, and then another one took place in the evening, so IYD is always an opportunity for a huge amount of service for the whole BK family across the world.

After a few days in Gyan Sarovar, I am now back in Shantivan. Hansaben and Dadi’s team are still in Pandav Bhawan, enjoying their time there.
Zoom link classes continued whilst on top of the mountain.
There was also a chance to meet with the Gyan Sarovar Niwasis and Sevadharis who still remain. Sumanben of GS conducted an interview about my experiences of coming to Baba, and the challenges that were faced. I was able to read Murli a couple of the mornings in GS, so it was a chance to connect up with the Gyan Sarovar family.
There was also the opportunity to go to Dadi Janki Park, on both sides of the road down the valley but also up the mountain, and it’s amazing to see everything beautifully fresh and blooming. There have been a few thunderstorms (lasting a couple of hours each time) that have brought a lot of greenery already to the mountain. Apparently, 5000 trees have been planted on both sides of the road in Dadi Janki Park. I saw a tomato tree for the first time with real green tomatoes dangling; I’ve only seen tomatoes on little plants but this was a proper tree. The seeds for this had apparently come from Singapore. There are 21 varieties of fruits planted in the Park, and many, many vegetables. Several kilos of vegetables have been already picked, and of course everything is organic, and are being shared.
The whole of Nakki Lake perimeter is blossoming; many of you would have seen it last season. The motivation of the Brother in-charge of this project is that wherever Baba’s feet have touched the ground, that place should be made very beautiful. It’s with that motivation that he took up the project of Polo Ground, Nakki Lake, and now Dadi Prakashmani Road (that runs all the way from the Lake to Pandav Bhawan). Near the Lake, at the end of the road is a beautiful space that is a Rose Garden with 5000 rose bushes; many, many cuttings and saplings have nicely grown, and so the whole place is again very beautiful. All of this is being done for the Government, so that the public can enjoy it and take benefit. The work is infinite and endless, but definitely, Mount Abu is being made very lovely apart from its natural beauty.
There was also a chance to visit Peace Park. 40 brothers who reside and serve there gathered together for Class. Normally they would be serving thousands of Visitors/Tourists daily, who would be taken through the Spiritual Exhibition or to the different Meditation Spots of the Park, but now that all the outside workers are not allowed to enter due to lockdown, it’s these 40 brothers who have had to learn about gardening too! They are maintaining the gardens very well, and there is some renovation work going on too.
Normally during these months of the year, Mount Abu is flooded with tourists, but the hotels are now empty, and most of the shops are shut, so there definitely has been a huge impact on the local community here. Let’s see what further drama brings.

Everyone has been mentioning how beautiful the weather on the Mount is, but actually being in Gyan Sarovar and seeing the morning mist, and feeling the coolness of the atmosphere at 20-21 degrees Celsius is really beautiful. The mist clears mid-morning, and there is sunshine and it becomes about 27 degrees, but it really is a very big change from the 42 degrees Celsius of Shantivan in the daytime, and 31-32 degrees in the early mornings.
10th morning, Dr Nirmalaben took me to see some of the departments of Gyan Sarovar. She herself needed to visit some of the Stores; we also saw the Laundry and the Flour-Mill department. The cleaning of all the wheat happens here in GS with huge machines, and the cleaned grain is then sent to the other two campuses. There are normally trucks going every day, but with lockdown everything is quiet.
Many trees on the top of the mountain have beautiful mangoes dangling on them, but probably it’s going to take a few weeks for them to ripen, whereas they have already ripened in Shantivan.

I am now in Gyan Sarovar in my room, and Hansaben and Devi are in Dadi’s room in Dadi’s Cottage. It’s very pleasant to be back here in GS. The climate is very, very lovely. We had a very sweet, warm welcome from Dr Nirmalaben and Sudeshben, who are here in Dadi’s Cottage.

Om Shanti. We were planning to go up the mountain for a few days, as many people have been asking us to come up and spend time on the mountain top. We were all packed and ready to go, and then we got the news that they’ve discovered the first positive COVID-19 case (non-BK) of Mount Abu, in one of the little villages, and so we are still in Shantivan as they will be identifying the containment zone over the next day or so. We’ll see when there is the possibility of going up.
A Mount Abu family had gone to Gujarat for a visit, and one of the members caught the virus. The rest of the family are awaiting the results of their tests; the whole family has been brought down to Baba’s Man Sarovar, the new building by the riverside near Shantivan, which the Yagya had been asked to hand over to the Municipal Council to be used as an isolation/quarantine facility for COVID-19 positive and suspected cases. A medical team is resident there as well as police, and of course people in quarantine as well as COVID-19 patients (a total of around 40-50) from around the Abu Road area. Food for everyone is being provided thrice a day by Baba’s home, Shantivan.
Mango season is in full force, and trucks of mangoes have actually come from various places in Gujarat and Maharashtra, so everyone has been enjoying the mangoes. The mangoes have also been sent from Madhuban to many other Centres, as far as away as Delhi, so Madhuban continues to play the role of Mother and Father, and takes care of the big family.

5th morning, we had a very sweet ceremony to honour World Environment Day, on the ground opposite the Conference Hall, in Shantivan, where we have Dadi Janki’s Memorial. Brother Nirwair joined the little group and gave a short message for WED, and then saplings for a Mango tree, a Christmas/Pine Tree and herbal tree were planted in three corners.

4 June morning was again a wonderful scene in drama: Bhog was offered for Sarla Didi Ahmedabad (for the first anniversary), but being Thursday, it was also the first time after 3 months that BK Colony members (BK families who are living around Shantivan) were invited to visit Baba’s home. They were also given packets of Baba’s Bhog. The organisation by Munniben and Devbhai was incredible: 14 buses had been sent to the different sites where BKs live, and so groups came and went on a round of Diamond Hall in the buses, and then got off by the Conference Hall. They then visited the temporary Memorial for Dadi Janki in the garden in front of Conference Hall, while observing physical distancing. Baba’s songs were being played, and in silence and with great love and respect, Baba’s children went around the Memorial, spent time there and then came to collect their Bhog packet from Rukmaniben, which contained fruits, sweet toli and the variety Brahma Bhojan. Around 1200 of these packets had been prepared so that BKs could take the Bhog home for family members also. It was a very lovely scene, which lasted for several hours. People appreciated being back in Baba’s home, even though it was a short visit.
Following this, Hansaben, the whole team of Shakti Bhawan and myself went to visit the IndiaOne Solar Plant. Dadi Janki used to love visiting here and would spend several hours sometimes in the sun, sometimes having chitchat with the family there. It was a beautiful experience to see the 5000 fruit trees that have been planted, and are providing a huge amount of greenery. They also have vegetables grown on the site. There was a chance to have Gyan chitchat with the family of 35 brothers and 2 sisters.
We then visited Dadi Janki’s Room. According to drama, it was created while she was away, and then of course drama stepped in and she flew away, so she actually never used the room, but it’s now become a Meditation Room where people come and spend a little time before Amrit Vela. Since lockdown started, people from Shantivan haven’t been able to come to the Solar Plant or the other way round, but the lockdown is easing a little bit so we were able to visit. We enjoyed a very delicious lunch with the family, and so it was a lovely outing.

4 June 2020
The tour of Shantivan continues. On the 3rd, I was able to go to the Toli Department, where preparations were being made for tomorrow. There will be a special bhog offered for Sarla Didi’s 1st anniversary.
We also saw the location of what used to be the Gyan Amrit Press, which basically houses just offices now, because the actual Printing Press has shifted to a new, larger building a few kilometres away from Shantivan.
Baba’s children are all working in different departments now, since there are fewer sevadharis and so extra help isn’t available, but anyway, the workload has shifted as we don’t have guests. But certainly, a lot of work still continues, and so the hands who are free are helping in the other departments too.

The tours around Shantivan Departments have continued, and it’s been very beautiful seeing all the Brahmins, but also seeing the situation of their place of service has been a fascinating eye-opener. I had thought that the tours would take two days, but it’s already taken four days, around 3 hours each day, and there is definitely one more ahead.
India lockdown has eased a little, but still many restrictions continue because the number of positive cases continues to rise.
In the midst of all of this, classes continue on Zoom. The different Conferences that normally happen in Gyan Sarovar in the summer are now happening online, and so there has been participation in the Conferences as well.

Today, we had a special Bhog Offering for the 2-month anniversary for Dadi Janki. Ishu Dadi, Munniben came to join us in Shakti Bhawan, with some others. Apart from special Bhog, we also received a lovely message from Baba through Rukmaniben. Apparently, Dadi looked extremely beautiful and so Rukmaniben asked her what the secret is; Dadi said, all the treasures that Baba has given her are filled within the soul, and she feels that this is the beauty Rukmaniben was seeing. This is just the essence of the message, but it was a very lovely atmosphere and a beautiful gathering.

News from Jayantiben in Shantivan: 26 May
27 May 2020
On Saturday, we had the launch of the 24-hour E-Channel, Music Godlywood, at the Godlywood Studio. Munniben and myself were there with Harilalbhai, together with Heads of Departments, so it was a small group due to social distancing. It was a very sweet event. Apparently there is music in 8 different languages and they have a stock of around 1500 new songs that have been created at the Studio over the last few years, and so these will be played on the Channel.
Tuesday, 26th was another sweet adventure. Hansaben organised a visit to several of Baba’s departments in Shantivan: We first went to the Water Department where they had all the equipment needed for plumbing.
Next was the Art Department. Shyambhai has been incharge of it since 1972, and he still continues bravely with a bigger team of course now.
The Carpentry Store was quite amazing; in fact every single department we saw was unlimited, with a huge amount of work going on.
The Transportation Dept for goods has 18 trucks, and even now trucks go daily to Palanpur and Abu Road for purchases of daily essentials like the vegetables, fruits etc. So much is happening which is totally behind the scenes.
The Accounts Department with Lalitbhai seems to have around 50 people serving there. Normally April onwards is the Audit Season, with BK Teachers coming to spend 4-5 days in Shantivan to get their Centres’ Auditing done. Since that’s not possible this year, everything is now being done online; all the documents are coming in online and so there is a huge department dealing with educational awareness of all the things that need to be done for Accounting. They even have a Software Development Section within the Accounts/Audit Department. It really is a marathon task dealing with over 6000 Units: Centres, some Sub-Centres, and Retreat Centres, so it’s quite amazing to see Baba’s unlimited task in every way in Madhuban.
We saw the department where they grind the grain for flour, and different types of grains were being ground. During the season, when there are 20,000-25,000 BKs visiting, it takes 100 sacks of flour to prepare the three meals for all pilgrims!
The Journey Food Department is totally computerised now, and again the detail of information that’s required and the way it’s distributed is wonderful.
This of course was just some of the departments, and I look forward to more adventures and seeing more.
News from Jayantiben in Shantivan: 25 May 2020
26 May 2020
There are non-stop Classes going on Zoom. India has thousands of Centres, and so now I am getting many, many requests from different Centres in India. Gyan Sarovar usually hosts different Conferences of the different Wings from April onwards, but they are of course online this year, and I am being asked to do recordings for those also! So it’s been extra busy.
Every year, the surrendered sisters and brothers of all four complexes receive cloth material and other essential items from the Yagya for the coming year. This usually happens in Shantivan, which isn’t possible this year due to lockdown. We saw 2000 packages being prepared and then on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday Hansaben and myself had a chance to be part of that distribution ceremony.
On 20 May, the packages were given to the Niwasis in the Conference Hall of Shantivan. The Conference Hall has received permission to be used for gatherings of a limited number, for Gyan and Yoga. The chairs have been put out to comply with social distancing, and it’s been working very well. Ishu Dadi, Dadi Ratan Mohini, Munniben all gave drishti; I handed out a package which was a gift from Madhuban in remembrance of Dadi Janki, and Hansaben gave beautiful mangoes and toli to everyone. So we had two groups on Wednesday (of 200 each). There was also the chance of Short Class with both the groups.
On Thursday, we had one more group which was a bit less than 200, and it included about 50 of the Shantivan Niwasi Sisters.
On Friday morning, we had the same ceremony in Pandav Bhawan. On arrival, we went to Baba’s Room, which was very, very moving, because of so many beautiful memories of Dadi Janki being there. We then had a short visit to the Baba’s Hut, and few minutes at Shanti Sthamb too. In PB, the line-up was Shashiben and Sheiluben together with Hansaben and myself, and it was done in the open-air space in front of Tower of Peace, opposite the History Hall, so that social distancing could be maintained.
We then passed by Nakki Lake, which is looking really beautiful. It’s clean and sparkling, and we were able to see all the additions that Harishbhai has made to the amenities around the lake. In particular, at the spot where they used to burn effigy of Ravan every year – it was known as Ravan Ghat then – there is a lovely park laid out, with the Indian flag hoisted very high up, and steps that take you down to the lake as well.
We came to Gyan Sarovar for the same ceremony for the GS Niwasis, with Dr Nirmalaben and Sudeshben plus of course a short class before the ceremony.
We then went to Global Hospital. Hansaben and I visited the room where Dadi Janki had taken her last breathe, and it was quite moving to be there after all these weeks. We then met the sisters and brothers who are part of the dedicated team of Madhuban. This was followed by a lovely lunch with Dr Pratapbhai and others, and we returned to Shantivan late afternoon.
On Friday afternoon, I was able to have a class with the team that looks after Ever-Healthy Clinic of Shantivan. This took place in one of Classrooms that they have in Vishram Bhawan.
So different things continue and meanwhile, we are safe and protected by Baba in Baba’s home.
Balwantbhai, Urvashiben and Minaben (Oxford) all returned to London safely on 21 May evening, and are in self-quarantine at GCH.

Balwantbhai, Brijben, Urvashiben and Mina (Oxford) are all leaving on 20 May by road to Delhi, and will be flying on 21st afternoon to London. This is part of the Vande Bharat Mission, which is repatriation of Bharatwasis who have been stranded outside India, and so as Air India is flying to the various countries, they are also flying out people who have been stranded in India.

A group left this morning by road to go to Delhi airport. They have seats tomorrow on one of the special KLM flights to Holland. Br Golo is returning to Frankfurt, Sister Guddi to Germany, Sister Laura to Spain and Sister Janet (of Australia) going to Europe.
So gradually the remaining DFs are leaving.

16 May 2020
Some people who had been here in Pandav Bhawan, Gyan Sarovar, and Shantivan since lockdown are gradually returning to their countries. Special trains had been running for a few days and so many of the Bharatwasi BKs have returned to their base. Some souls from far distant places in Bengal still remain in Shantivan.
After the experiment of having opened up trains so that migrants could return home, and seeing the spread of the virus to places that were formerly Green Zones, the train services have stopped again. Let’s see when they will open up.
Things still continue to be very cautious, but Yoga carries on, as do programmes online.

Shantivan - Hundreds of Stranded BKs Leave Abu Road for Andhra Pradesh by Special Train
13 May 2020
Abu Road (Rajasthan, India): A special train with 616 persons on board chugged off for Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh; 578 of them had arrived in Brahmakumaris’ Shantivan complex in Abu Road on March 16 to participate in the meditation camp but due to COVID-19 lockdown the same was cancelled.
Most of the Brahma Kumaris passengers were farmers, businessmen and villagers from different districts of Andhra Pradesh State who had come to participate in the meditation camp that was to be held on March 20 but they got stuck here due to cancellation of the program and subsequent lock down due to a coronavirus outbreak in the country. Other passengers were from Pali and Abu Road.
For them it was impossible to return home due to cancellation of train services even when they had got return reservation for March 24 but train services stood cancelled. It was a difficult situation for them as they were to harvest crops but had to stay here. All were promptly accommodated
“We wrote a letter to the Indian Home Affairs Minister Mr Amit Shah and also approached the state government of Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh requesting to arrange a train so that these people can be sent back, a spokesman said.
After concurrence with the three governments, Mount Abu SDM Ravindra Goswami, Brahmakumaris Executive Secretary B.K.Mruthyunjaya, Tehsildar Dinesh Acharya, DSP Praveen Kumar, besides RPF and GRP and station superintendent were present to flag off the special train to ferry passengers to Visakhapatnam.
The passengers were given a farewell by presenting flowers at the station. At the time of starting the train, all the top officers including SDM Ravindra Goswami, clapped and waved to the people.
Full attention to social distancing: During this period, shells were made for the cradle of social distancing in which people boarded the train waiting for their turn and left for their destination. All of them wearing face masks were medically screened and dispatched only after a team of doctors verified the mandatory provisions.

13 May 2020
Today, 12 May, is Jagdishbhaiji’s anniversary and so you must have been reading, seeing and hearing many things about our very dear, beloved Brother, who was a very, very special soul and played an incredible role not just in Bharat, but in establishing service outside Bharat also.
There was one COVID-19 positive person in our Sirohi District (Rajasthan), and it’s jumped to 11 in just a few days and so Abu is likely to be in the Red Zone very soon. Certainly, there are more restrictions in terms of travel in Abu Road, and also going up the mountain.

Dear Divine Brother/Sister,
Please accept Greetings of Health, Happiness, and Harmony on behalf of the Scientists and Engineers Wing(SEW), Mount Abu.
At the very outset, I must offer my heartfelt thanks to all of you for your contribution in creating tremendous awareness, which was reflected in the wide participation in our E-Conference on "Enhancing Quality of Life" which got started on 8th May 2020. The program during inauguration was graced by Dadi Ratanmohini Ji and other respected seniors. The concluding day was 11th May.
Heartening to share that all the sessions were telecast on Awakening TV Youtube Channel, Facebook, etc. and received wide acclaim. Various reputed dignitaries including the Secretary, Govt of India, and the Chairmen & CEOs of reputed industries also addressed the conference through online platforms. The data obtained shows that, on average, 14-15000 people attended each session.
On the concluding day, participants were enquiring about a further course of action. Accordingly, we are conducting an online Meditation Course on "Art of Joyful Living" through the Youtube platform. https://youtu.be/qtqKkirIVLw. All the lectures of this meditation course will be conducted in Hindi.
You are requested to circulate all the guests who have taken the advantage of E-Conference.

News from Jayantiben in Shantivan: 10 May
11 May 2020
The good news is that most of the BKs who had been stranded in Shantivan/Mt Abu since mid-March have all been able to leave and return to their lokik homes. Just a few remain from West Bengal, and that again is a very long journey so the attempt is to try and organise a train for them.
But the down side is that the virus has now reached Abu Road. Let’s see how things go, but it just means that there are strong restrictions in terms of movement around Abu Road/Shantivan and going up the mountain.
Those who are in the Mount say that it’s beautiful spring weather and though it’s around 30 degrees in the day time, it’s pleasant in the nights and early mornings. Of course, it’s very, very different in Shantivan, where on average it’s about 40-42 degrees Celsius in the afternoons, and just a few degrees lesser in the evenings and early mornings!
But it’s fine; we have good company with Baba and the family, and enough space to be able to move around so no one feels locked in, even though we are under lockdown.
12 May is Jagdishbhai’s anniversary day, and so on the 10th there was a chance to hear from Sudhaben of Moscow of her experiences with him, and know further about his Yoga Practices.
News from Jayantiben in Shantivan: 8 May
11 May 2020
7 May evening, Sudeshben was able to take Class with those in Shantivan, and I believe this was broadcast everywhere.
8 May morning, Hansaben and the Shakti Bhawan team went up the mountain after 6 weeks to visit Baba’s Rooms in Pandav Bhawan and Gyan Sarovar especially. They will return to Shantivan in the afternoon.
Unfortunately, we have received information that Sirohi District is now Orange Zone. With the migration of workers from other places back to their homes in Rajasthan, they found one COVID-19 positive case but it could be even more. It means we are back to more restrictions rather than the lifting of restrictions. But Baba is with us and all will be well, as we continue to take precautions.

5 May 2020
Trains have been organised by the Government to take stranded people back home, and so probably now 99% of all the BKs who have been stranded here since end of March will have gone back to their homes by tomorrow. Those further afield from Maharashtra like Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have also been able to leave.
Sirohi District is fortunate because it’s a Green Zone, and we haven’t had a single case so far, so the restrictions are gradually been lifted and many local shops and businesses are opening. But there are still rules to follow, and strict checks on the comings and goings, especially up and down the mountain.

It’s been a busy time in Shantivan. There have been several programmes for public online:
On Thursday, there was an event with a group that organised the ‘Mindful Joy Online Summit’, which was recorded and will be webcast at some point.
On Friday, there was a connection with Prabhu Upvan, Borivali (Mumbai) for their 16th anniversary.
On Saturday, there was a webcast with Richard Baret, formally of the World Bank and now the Founder of the Baret Institute for Values, and a good conversation on the subject of Values.
There was also a public programme on ‘The Healing Power of God’ for the Middle East on webcast.
On Sunday, there was an hour’s Session on ‘Ask the Spiritual Masters’, which I believe was being broadcast on Doordarshan, the Public Service Broadcaster of the Govt of India.
On Monday, there was a Closing Session with Br Stephen Berkeley for a programme in Australia called ‘The Super-Human Summit’.
Apart from BK Classes and Connections, it seems there is also a huge interest in outreach by many organisations.

In Baba's Yaad
News from Jayantiben in Shantivan: 30 April
1 May 2020
At the moment, it’s the exodus of the Maharashtra BK group that had come for service at the 20 March 2020 Avyakt Meeting, and then got stranded with lockdown. Over a thousand have left for their home places in buses. The journey is taking a long time because there are many, many checks along the way, especially at the borders of each State: Rajasthan, Gujarat, and then Maharashtra, but at least they will soon be back with their families. Another thousand are due to leave over the next few days.
The Central Government has now issued general permission, not just to this group but to anyone who has been stranded over the past 5 weeks (migrant workers, students etc), to return to their homes, while following all the rules. But it’s interesting that we received this permission on the 27th, Dadi Janki’s one-month anniversary, some days before the general permission was granted.
Message from Karuna Dada Ji - When will it be SAFE to end the lockdown?
1 May 2020
This is an important message for all Indians & the world as well! For those who are arguing on both sides that we must open now or it is too soon to open, this is the most important thing you need to know.
Here's the most asked question to answer: When will it be SAFE to end the lockdown, to *re-emerge*?
May 1st? Or May 15th? Or June end? Or July end? Or August?
Here's the real answer: Never. It will never be "SAFE.”
Social distancing, staying at home, all of these measures - were these not meant to "cure" Covid-19 ?
No at all! These were measures to slow it down, so as to not overwhelm our healthcare system.
For the most part, so far we've done that.
However it should be clearly understood that this does not change the virality of Covid-19; or how it spreads from one person to another.
Nor does it have any effect on the mortality rate.
It was intended to just delay it until we find a PERMANENT CURE .
A very important point to note here is that -
As soon as we re-emerge, the virus will spread again, & the people with weak immune systems will still succumb to it in large nos.
This is a harsh fact which all of us have to realise.
The people who missed it this time, may eventually get it - regardless of whether we re-emerge on May 1st or September 30th ......
*What is it , that we need to do now ? *
We need to protect our healthcare system in every possible way to handle the load, but we don't need to mislead ourselves over the outcome of this quarantine.
Hard Truth of life now is - It is slowing it down, but not curing it.
Eg : If you're driving to Pune from Mumbai at 50 miles an hour or 100 miles an hour, the distance doesn't change, isn’t it ???
Therefore the need of the hour now is -
if our lifestyle is causing you to have a weakened immune system, use this lockdown time to correct that. This should be one of our major resolutions / actionables now without any doubt! Otherwise, you've placed a “heavy target “ on your own back which will be very difficult to carry ... Youngsters as well as older people should understand & make sure that this is not the time for indulging in comfort food - but it's a time to give ourselves the healthiest, most robust immune system our body is capable of.
*How can this be achieved *?
- By Having healthy , nutritious food ,
- Compulsory, 8-hour, night sleep.
- Drink lime water ( warm water ) daily morning without fail ;
- Not having refrigerated or aerated drinks ;
- Detox yourself everyday & - maintain social distancing for next couple of weeks/ even months until we have a vaccine or definite, standardized, proven medicine that ensures rapid cure.
It's as simple as this !!!
Hope you all understand that this is just the beginning & not the end .
We need to be careful about ourselves by maintaining real good healthly & hygienic habits in this lockdown period!
Stay Home! Stay Safe!!!
