Winter Storm News from Dallas Texas

18 February 2021

 

Om Shanti Divine Family, Greetings of love.

Due to the unprecedented, historically low temperatures over an extended period, there is a power outage in the center and for few Brahmins since February 14, and we are expecting the outages to continue for the rest of the week.

Texans are not used to these low temperatures. The electric companies are trying to restore power. But it can go anytime. Today we have had power since 9 am.

We are well equipped and managing well to do the Murli classes in the mornings and Yog/Tapasya in the evenings - and are of course enjoying the drama.

Thank you for your loving good wishes.

New Initiative - Uniting Souls in America (USA) Mansa Seva

17 February 2021

 

Dear Divine Family, Warm greetings filled with love.

In our February 14th USA sustenance call, we presented a mansa-seva project to serve the USA. The theme of the initiative is Uniting Souls in America (USA) Mansa Seva. This program is in response to the increase in hate crimes and domestic terrorism. The country we love and are here to serve needs us, ancestor souls, at this time.  Collectively, we can and at least try to unite this country's souls through some common spiritual threads.

This mansa seva initiative asks all BKs to spend at least 30 minutes of our evening meditation to devote to this worthwhile cause, from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm, starting from February 15 through Dadi Janki Day (March 27).  

The aim of this time together is to:

·        To see everyone as souls. Not as a particular race, or religion, or ethnic identity but to really see each one as a soul.

·        Through our thoughts, our yoga, and our sakaash connect all souls to their eternal Parent.

·        Become a conduit of Baba's love and spread it to each and every soul in this country.

·        Increase souls' sense of belonging to a higher cause and their Divine Parent.

 
The team will send out excerpts on Mansa Seva, on Baba's love, belonging, good wishes, and pure feelings for each of the days in this initiative.  We suggest you use these excerpts to guide and deepen your mansa seva.  For February 15, 16, and 17 we suggest you use the Avyakti Parivar points for each day, as these points are focused on the practice of soul consciousness.

 
In Love and Remembrance of our Beloved Baba,
USA Mansa Seva Team on behalf of Sister Mohini

Link for Several Published Weekly Articles Written by Sr Chirya for the Owego Pennysaver Online Newspaper Plus Other News

10 February 2021

 

 

Om Shanti,

Thought you might have interest in some service news!  We are all fine and enjoying lots of snow and cold, in the bodiless stage!

    Here's a link for a list of several of Baba's weekly articles published in the on-line Pennysaver:  http://www.owegopennysaver.com/PS/?s=Chirya
    The Mountain Eagle newspaper is also continuing to publish weekly and is very happy to have me "as part of the team!" says Editor Matt recently.
    Sunday's BK Daily News from Karuna's office also published Baba's recent article on Unity:

    Knowing Our Identity Creates Unity

bkdailynews­.org - President Biden's focus on Unity inspired Sister Chirya to write this article.
President Biden was elegantly humble in delivering one major thought into the collective conscience of the nation in his i…

And here's a photo of an article that arrived in today's Pennysaver.  We were most pleased with how it was published. The photo is one that I took. Many loved the store 'The Hand of Man' (mentioned under the photo). My lokik sister Pat ran it for 45 years and it recently closed.

BapDada in the early days gave me the blessing of my name and continued at one point saying, 'Chirya, you are the one who continues to 'chirp, chirp, chirp' knowledge to everyone'. And it's happening!  Baba is doing and I am enjoying!

All is well,  lots of love,
Sr Chirya

Living Values Classes for Kids (8-14 years) – ONLINE hosted by Silicon Valley BKs

15 January 2021

  • Sunday | 01/17/2021
  • 10:30 am - 11:30 am (PST)
  • ONLINE
  • 408 809 1908

How do we ensure that our kids learn and sustain values in today’s unsafe world? How do we harness the innocent and young generation’s ability to grasp, learn, and grow it in the right manner? At Brahma Kumaris, we understand that positive living values are needed to raise a “Whole child”. Living values such as peace, love, respect, tolerance, cooperation, honesty, responsibility, and freedom are critical social values cherished and aspired all over the world. Our unique technique will enable them to absorb and imbibe these living values content easily. The classes are catered towards kids (8-14 years) and they have been customized in a way so that learning will be fun and easy.

Peace for the USA

15 January 2021

Om Shanti, Baba’s elevated instruments serving in the United States of America,

The souls we have been given the opportunity to serve are all in need of powerful peaceful vibration. Great amounts of upset, anger, and conflict are palpable in this part of the world.

We are hopeful that you will be able to share extra peaceful vibrations each day for the rest of the month to serve the souls who have to play their unique roles. You may also inspire the students in your area to have mansa seva for the country and the world.

In Baba’s yaad,

BK Mohini

Request for Powerful Yoga for USA in January

7 January 2021

Om Shanti and Greetings for the New Year,

Baba has chosen special instruments to serve in the USA. Each of you is being asked to share our vibrations of peace and harmony during these unsettled days where the change of power occurs in the USA government.

Please suggest to the instruments and students in your area to offer powerful raja yoga vibrations for the citizens and the USA family. It is anticipated that this month may need extra calming energy for all souls here.

News from Washington, DC on 6th January

6 January 2021

Dear Global Family,

Loving greetings as we continue to observe the drama. I wanted to draft you this short note to let you know all of Baba's children are fine here in Washington D.C..Today we held a Prayer for America on the evening online program, The Next Normal. The images you might have seen on the news represent a small group of people in America who believe whole heartedly in the current leadership. Their storming into the Capitol was a message to help overturn the election results. However, it failed. This is a big wake up call for the leaders in politics here. I have received many calls today and most people are praying and wishing for America to be at peace.

I do request your continued pure wishes and vibrations will help to keep the calm.

Thanks to the many of you who texted and called.
Wishing everyone the best.
In Baba's Yad,
BK Jenna, Washington D. C.

He showed us how to tap into the energy of fulfillment.

Transform Weaknesses into Power

Sister Yolanda took us on a journey to our inner world. Being responsible for the state of being you experience. She gave tools to discover and develop the life you desire, in the purest sense.

Developing inner values and having a true look at your inner critical mind and how to set yourself free.

In Silence I am Peace!

Sister Yolanda explained the benefits of being silent and how it regenerates our brain cells and specifically the prefrontal cortex which is involved with higher thinking, decision making, and problem-solving.

Sister Kristina and Yolanda continued doing the Wednesday night guided meditation for the Miami Center.

Retreat

As a highlight of this month, Naples family joined the rest of the Florida BK family for the first virtual retreat, which normally would take place in Naples!

A heartfelt thank you to the IT team and all those who were involved with the blessed flow of the retreat itself, you did an amazing job!

MARGATE

Evening Sustenance – Avyakti Parivar

Avyakti Parivar program with Sister Mohini continues to sustain, strengthen and unite us in our efforts as one spiritual family. The expansion in zoom programs both national and international is proving to be the acceptable means of sustenance for the BK family.

CHRISTMAS & NEW YEARS

With news of yet another wave and the media hype of lockdowns, students are still restricted in physically attending gatherings. Nevertheless, Christmas and New year’s celebrations continued at the Center. For those who attended, Baba’s gathering was joyous and powerful as always. Zoom participants also took their own flavor of joy from Baba’s family gathering. Season’s greeting to all.
