A Brief Report of LCOY-15 India (2 - 4 Nov.) held at Shantivan, Brahma Kumaris

18 November 2019

Divine Family

The world leaders have been discussing environment crisis and negotiating climate change for 24 years, yet the speed with which we drive towards our own destruction is breath-taking. The young people, as Global citizens are becoming increasingly aware that they are born into a world in crisis and they need to do something about it.

 

With this in mind, Brahma Kumaris hosted 15th Edition of LCOY at our International HeadQuarters in Shantivan, Abu Road, Rajasthan from 2nd to 4th Nov., 2019, to enhance the youth's understanding on climate change and sustainable lifestyle. LCOY-India is an annual event officially recognised by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its official youth-constituency called YOUNGO. LCOY India.

 

The event kicked off with an opening ceremony at Training Centre on November 2nd in the presence of eminent guests which included Mr. Prabhjot Sodhi, Sr. Coordinator, UNDP India and Mr. Akash Vashishtha, Advocate, Supreme Court of India & Secretary of the Society for the Protection of Environment and Biodiversity and the following two days more than 15 workshops were held to reflect a process of inclusive, participatory and transparent dialogue. Talanoa dialogue sessions also took place which enabled the participants to share stories, build empathy and to make wise decisions for the collective good.

 

 The key themes at the heart of our event were:

  • Communicating Climate Action & Challenges
  • Climate Justice & Peace
  • History and science of climate change
  • Compassionate Living
  • Indigenous Sustainable Lifestyle
  • Solid & Liquid Resource Management
  • Zero Waste Conscious Living
  • Indian Heritage Art and others

This conference brought together 200 young people (age between 16 and 35 years) from across India to meet, learn from, and enter into dialogue with one another. Moreover, in different workshops covering about 15 different themes, people got the chance to learn about different facets of climate change. At the LCOY, people understood that isolated actions are not sufficient and that only by creating a web of actions can we achieve the necessary impact.

 

Informative sessions were conducted on Sustainable Yogic Agriculture by BK Sumanth and Climate and Consciousness by BK Aneta Behn where the environmental initiatives of Brahma Kumaris were discussed with the audience.

The participants also took a tour of India One Solar Plant and Tapovan as a part of BK Eco Initiatives and Environmental Awareness.

 

Special class by Rajyogi BK Suraj Bhai and Meditation Sessions by Bro. David and Desert Rose Group were held to heal the planet and create fresh awareness of interconnectedness with the world around us.

 

The whole Conference successfully concluded on 4th November, with the participants understanding the need to consciously adopt  environment friendly practices and work together in creating a safer and healthy planet. The climax of the conference was the creation of a policy proposal which will be fed into the global Conference of Youth (COY). From the COY will come a synthesised policy report from all grassroots youth across the world who participated in LCOYs and will be fed directly into the Conference of the Parties (COP) - the largest international climate change conference. This is a unique way to have your voice heard on a global platform.

15th Edition of LCOY inaugurated on 2nd November at Shantivan

5 November 2019

LCOY-India is an annual event officially recognised by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate change & its official youth-constituency called YOUNGO.

The Inaugural event was graced by Rajyogini Dadi Ratan Mohini, Rajyogi BK Mruthyunjaya, Rajyogini BK Sheilu, Mr. Prabhjot Sodhi, Sr. Coordinator, UNDP India and Mr. Akash Vashishtha, Advocate, Supreme Court of India & Secretary of the Society for the Protection of Environment and Biodiversity.

Mr. Prabhjot Sodhi praised the efforts of Brahma Kumaris and its presence worldwide. He urged the participants to shed the ‘weight’ of mind and explore a good life which is guided by principles. He said, “Our good actions give us the motivation and means to change things in ways needed for better life.” 

Mr. Akash Vashistha gave statistics on how environment is moving towards disaster and asked the youths to take initiative and personal responsibility to reduce impact on earth and move towards a sustainable future. The crisis of a growing global population, desertification, the contamination of water, and damage to the atmosphere itself demands a radical change in our society at every level.

Rajyogi BK Mruthyunjaya said that the mental pollution is the seed of all pollution and negativity. “A polluted mind conceives polluted thoughts, which are then translated into polluted and contaminated words and actions. Negative influences of vices of anger, greed, sex lust, attachment and ego have led to an unprecedented rise in a global pollution.   Youth should not just hope that government or other officials will magically transform our world but should focus on daily thoughts, actions and decisions that can have a positive impact on the environment.” He asked the participants to pledge to plant at least one sapling in a year.

Rajyogini Sheilu Behn said, ‘we all need to awaken greater environmental awareness. There is a deep connection between our consciousness, thoughts and actions, and their impact on the world. The values of love, compassion, sharing and caring are needed to restore the beauty of this world. The youth should focus on creating positive thoughts which can help to keep up their initiative and mobilization.’

Rajyogini Dadi Ratan Mohini Ji gave her blessings to all the participants and asked each to cooperate and collaborate with each other through positive actions and happy faces.

Sister BK Jayanti sent her good wishes through video in which she asked the participants to change their consciousness for a better sustainable future. BK Shivika welcomed the guests and BK Supriya coordinated the programme. 

About 200 youths attended the program.

Message from BK Nirwair regarding Tree Planting to Ameliorate Climate Change

15 July 2019

Dear divine sisters and brothers all around Bharat,
Please accept very special hearty Godly love and remembrances from Shantivan (Abu Road). 

As the grave topic of Climate Change continues to be much discussed topic, it would be lovely for Baba's children (Members of the BK Divine Family) to invoke powerful vibrations from most beloved Shiv Baba and Brahma Baba, and engage themselves in planting the maximum number of rain-pulling trees (Peepal, Banyan, Mango, Neem, Jammun), as mentioned in our earlier communications. We are pleased to be receiving news from various places about their endeavours in this regard.

Madhuban-Shantivan has taken the initiative of planting about 60,000 trees around Abu Road, Mt Abu, parts of Sirohi District, and some areas of Gujarat connected with Ambaji. 

It's a very big challenge for us (those who are focused on becoming worship-worthy Deities of the Golden Age, where nature will happily serve one and all) to undertake. Unless we serve Nature now, how can she respond and provide the comforts of friendly weather patterns throughout the year in Satyuga... Let's pledge to plant 6-8 feet long saplings of the above said trees in large numbers around Bharat, in alliance with other charitable institutions, social service organisations like Rotary and Lions International, Women Organisations, and community service groups.  

Our Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi ji, has also appealed to the citizens of Bharat to plant huge numbers of trees, and then nurture them for at least 3 years. During his speeches we always hear the words, "Mere Bharatwasi 130 crore bhai-behne hai..." or in other words, the people of Bharat are members of the same human family who can bring about positive change in the environment. 

As and when you plant a tree, please also make time to observe silence for a few minutes, to invoke BapDada's pure vibrations for the benefit of all five elements. Many of our devotee brothers and sisters pray and perform 'Havan' rituals etc to please the Rain Gods, while we will invest time and energy in growing rain-pulling trees, which will definitely please nature. 

Multi-million thanks and Avyakt BapDada's blessings to all for your constructive work in bringing about beneficial climate change!

With Godly love and remembrances,
Your Spiritual Brother,
B.K. Nirwair

 

 

Report: International Parents Retreat 2018

9 July 2019

The International Parents retreat took place in Gyan Sarovar from 26th to 29th of
December, alongside the International Children’s, the International Youth and
Young Adults and the Double Foreigners Retreats.

Because, this year, the total number of double foreigners was less than last year,
there emerged a beautiful collaboration with the coordinators of the Double
Foreigners retreat, for all to take the maximum benefit of the available spiritual
resources provided by our seasoned experienced divine Seniors, which resulted in
number of shared sessions.

58 registered participants in total of which 20 were first-timers from 16 countries
attended with a happy heart and great enthusiasm and thereby, with Baba co-created
a successful retreat.

Honoring the Self and the Family was the successful theme of this retreat.

Godlywood News n Views - July Issue

8 July 2019

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Om Shanti.

Response and feedback from the readers of Godlywood News n' Views is amazing. It's indeed heartening to know that more and more viewers are taking keen interest in our programs which is an inspiration to produce more value-packed content.

In this issue read the review of our latest short film - 'Badalti Duniya' (Changing World) which is a depiction of the outdated mindset of the society that rejects the new and clings to the old. In the guest corner, read excerpts from the talk of the veteran social reformer Anna Hazare  - a staunch admirer of the Brahma Kumaris teachings - and his anti corruption movement that shook India to the core. News corner highlights Peace News _Tamil which is just launched and the Tech-Corner opens eyes to the Preview Theater of the Studio and the possibilities of VIP service that can happen through the preview theater.

Read through, enjoy the content, give feedback, suggest improvements and let's join hand's in the task of taking Media Service to another level to glorify Baba and His mission.
