Spiritual Body & Railway Ink MOU for Cleanliness

18 Sep 2017

SOURCE: Time of India ( Updated: Jul 15, 2017


Ajmer: The Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishwa Vidhyalaya has taken up the responsibility of maintaining cleanliness at Abu Road railway station. On Saturday, the Brahma Kumaris signed a five-year MoU with the North Western Railways (NWR) to this effect.
On the occasion, divisional railway manager (DRM) Puneet Chawla said that this is the first-of-its-kind initiative of Indian railways where a spiritual organization has taken over the cleaning of a railway station. The institution will carry out integrated mechanized cleaning work of Abu Road railway station.

Abu Road is the gateway to the popular hill station of Mount Abu and also a gateway to Rajasthan from Western India. It comes under the Ajmer division of North Western Railways (NWR).

"The initiative has been taken under the 'Clean India Green India' programme of the railways. The involvement of a spiritual institution opens up new horizons for the Indian railways. Brahma Kumaris will provide workers for cleaning of platforms, waiting rooms, waiting hall, offices, tracks and the premises and circulating area," said Chawla.

The institute with the help of 52 workers dressed in uniform and equipped with safety gear like gloves, caps, face mask, shoes, will carry out the cleaning work. They will also use 13 machines including ride-on scrubbers, high pressure jets, heavy duty vacuum cleaners and walk behind machines.

Chawla further said that the work will be done as per NGT (National Green Tribunal) guidelines for sanitation.

The MoU will help the Indian railways save Rs 6.20 lakh per month. The total savings at the end of five years will be Rs 3.72 crore.

Abu Road railway station, on an average, gets 8,000 passengers daily and clocks a revenue of Rs 8.83 lakh every day.



RECIPE Training Programme at C.A. College, Mawal, Abu Road

9 Sep 2017



A RECIPE Training Programme was conducted from 25th June 2017 to 5th July 2017 for students and teaching staff at Uttam Parkash Aggarwal Charted Accountant College, Mawal, Abu Road on the invitation of Mr. Uttam Parkash, C. A., Ex-President of ICAI.

Respected Rajayogi Brother B.K. Mruthunjaya Ji, Vice Chairperson of Education Wing, addressed the participants and filled them with zeal and enthusiasm. He said, “Today the human beings are considered as the most dangerous animals. We can divinize the human beings to deities by making them aware of the missing link of spiritual education in today’s education system.” His revolutionary views made everyone curious ‘to realize thyself’ and make spiritual lifestyle as a part of their routine life.

In the Inaugural Session, B.K. Dr. Pandiamani Ji said that spiritual education is a lifelong phenomenon and it keeps you enthusiastic, active and enlightened throughout your whole life.

Brother B.K Rajesh, the Executive Member of Education Wing, took 11 sessions for three hours daily on burning issues related to the life of youth like Understanding and achieving the real aim of life, Converting failure to success, Inner Happiness, Nurturing relationships with family members and peers, Spiritual healthy lifestyle, etc. Both the students and staff thoroughly enjoyed these sessions as they were made very interesting through games, group discussions, workshops and presentations. Sister B.K. Aruna also played her role in managing and helping to run the program smoothly and efficiently. Her interaction with the students about karma philosophy and harms of non-vegetarian diet was applauded by all.

The most wonderful and blissful part of the programme was the realization of everyone as the peaceful, blissful and happy souls made by God, the Supreme Soul Shiva, through practical meditation sessions, and because of this realization the participants promised at the Valedictory Session to follow the following points in their life:

    1. Practise regular Meditation daily for 15 minutes in the morning and evening.
    2. Listen to quiet, calm music, mediation songs and commentaries
    3. Refrain from passing comments on anyone, bullying  anyone and using humiliating words
    4. To express themselves politely and respectfully if anybody scolds or use unparliamentarily language for them, and thereby forgive them.
    5. To write a letter to the Supreme Being before going to bed detailing in it the accounts of the day and to forgive all those who caused pain              and misery to them during the whole day.



National Bhagwad Geeta Convention in Delhi

8 Sep 2017



National Convention on the Bhagavad Gita Begins
‘Yoga is the Quint Essence of Bhagvad Gita’-Dr Nagendra


Gurgaon, July 8: The Bhagavad Gita is a spiritual text propagating non-violence as the supreme religion. It therefore does not inspire a violent physical war, but asks people to conquer inner demons on the subtle battlefield of mind. The Gita has been misunderstood because its deep wisdom has been interpreted at a gross level.

These points were concluded on the first day of the National Convention on the Bhagavad Gita which was held at the Brahma Kumaris’ Om Shanti Retreat Centre here today. Participants of the convention included eminent people from the fields of religion, law, media, education and spirituality.      

Opening the conference, BK Brijmohan, Additional Secretary-General, Brahma Kumaris, said: “Today, people say that religion is the cause of violence because they have misunderstood it, and wrongly placed violence at its roots.” He asked the participants to think deeply if the God of Gita could ever choose the path of war to cleanse the world of vices and restore peace.

BK Usha from Mount Abu said that when human beings do not approve of violence, how could God, the highest authority, give permission for a violent war. She said: “The God of Gita has revealed deep secrets and highest wisdom through metaphors. When these are taken literally, we end up believing in falsity.”   

Elaborating on this, Dr. Nagendra, yoga guru and chairperson of the programme, said that unless intricate truths that make religions great are understood in the right context, the knowledge may appear confusing and irrational.

He said that everyone has both positive and negative tendencies within. The prime trait of devilish tendencies is uncontrolled speed of the mind. Till humans gain victory over their mind through the power of meditation, the chaos around the world cannot be controlled.

Appealing to everyone to end conflict in the name of religion, he said: “All religions promote highest human values, love and peace. But when we leave that common essence, and get too caught in dissimilarities that emerge from different religious identities, then religion is misused as a means of violence.”

 'Inculcating morals can transform an individual'

8 Sep 2017
SOURCE: The Hitavada published by Staff Reporter on 3 July 2017



Spiritual awakening is needed for a person to fight with all obstacles in life. Violence is not the solution to fight with difficulties, but inculcating morals could help to transform an individual, said Justice Vangala Eshwaraiah, chairperson, National Commission for Backward Classes; former Chief Justice of High Court of Andhra Pradesh on the other day at Brahmakumaris, 8-A, Indraprastha Bhavan, Vasant Nagar, Neeri Road, near Deekshabhoomi. Justice V Eshwaraiah was delivering a talk on Spiritual Awakening for Judicial Reforms. Dr Baban Taiwade, Principal, Dhanwate National College also graced the occasion.

Justice Eshwaraiah stated that a person himself has been thinking as a physical body. But the physical body has been a constitution of five elements. The supreme consciousness or divine soul has been the driving force for the body. A person has become slave of his own senses and could not able to take any decision in life. This is the reason a lot of negative activities and incidences of violence have been witnessed in society. Even judiciary is not free from these negative forces, he added. Justice Eshwaraiah illustrated an example of Dacoit Panchamsingh.

The dangerous dacoit Panchamsingh got transformed into Brahmakumar Panchamsingh. When Brahma Kumaris could transform a dacoit in prison, then any person could get transformed in life. It is needed to identify self and get united with supreme soul, he added. Dr Baban Taiwade and Adv Purshottam Patil, Vice President of High Court Bar Association also spoke on this occasion. Sanjay Pannase made introductory remarks.

BK Manisha Didi welcomed the guests. BK Nilima Behan conducted the proceedings and BK Premprakash Bhai proposed a vote of thanks.



Week-long drug de-addiction campaign in Chandigarh

SOURCE: The Tribune ( published by the Tribune News Service on 3 July 2017


Brahma Kumaris Drug De-Addiction Campaign was inaugurated in the city today. The seven-day campaign will run through Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh in which more than 150 trained volunteers will offer services.

The volunteers will lay their focus on schools and colleges. The younger generation, particularly teenagers, is the worst victim of evils of drug addiction. Hospitals have a special department “Mind Body Medicine” that deals with the control of drug de-addiction and rehabilitation.

Dr Partap Midha, Director, Global Hospital, Mount Abu, and Dr Banarsi Lal Sah said tobacco had become the gateway to drugs in youth. Youngsters start with smoking and then gradually shift to even more harmful drugs out of various socioeconomic and family reasons.

Dr Sachin from Bombay also highlighted the ongoing campaigns of Brahma Kumaris wherein a large number of volunteers are offering their selfless services across the country to help innocent youth fallen in the evil trap of drugs.

While emphasising on the importance of meditation, he said with meditative practice and good dietary habits, drug de-addiction process automatically sets in. The patient doesn’t have to leave it forcefully and most importantly there are minimal or no withdrawal symptoms.

During meditation, certain hormones are secreted in the body that are responsible for cheerfulness, happiness and increase in tolerance power. These services from Brahma Kumaris are available without any cost, totally free of charge.

Dr Rakesh Gupta, Punjab State Nodal Officer for Tobacco Control, said Punjab is the first state to ban unapproved e-cigarettes, which contain a large quantity of nicotine in liquid form and are extremely harmful.

Apart from May 31, in Punjab, ‘No Tobacco Day’ is also celebrated on November 1, which happens to be ‘Punjab Day’.

Chief guest UT Home Secretary Anurag Agarwal addressed the audience and elucidated on the importance of services offered by Brahma Kumaris in this field.

He said without the help of such organisations even government projects could not be successful.

Media is playing major role in society's decline: Sr Shivani at Holistic Wellness Retreat Program for Media persons

2 Jul 2017

SOURCE: Outlook India, The News Scroll (, published on 13 June 2017.


Gurugram (Haryana) [India], June 14: Society is on the decline and media is playing a major role in this, Brahma Kumari Shivani said, while addressing eminent media persons and intellectuals from diverse fields.

While expressing her opinion about the role of media, she said, "It has the power to create the destiny of society. Media means information, and information is food for the mind or mental diet. Mental diet is the first factor in changing mental health. She said that the quality of information determines the quality of thoughts. The kind of information we read determines our perception".

Shivani further said, "Positive information thus determines the perception of society. Media is a power because it creates thought process and perception. It has the power to create the destiny of society. Society is on the decline and media is playing a major role in this."

She said that an experiment of three months was required to change our mental diet and this entailed not listening in the morning to the Newspaper and TV channels as they were providing 'Tamsik, heavy energy food', implying negative news.

Shivani was speaking in a Holistic Wellness Retreat Program for media persons and their families that was organised by Brahma Kumaris on June 11th at Brahma Kumaris Om Shanti Retreat Centre. The event was attended by eminent media persons and intellectuals from diverse fields.

BK Shivani began her address by asking the audience about the meaning of the word wellness and whether wellness is situated around us or inside us? She said that what is outside is not under our control and if the inside is dependent on what is outside, then the inside is not in one's control. In the past few years, what is outside has started to fluctuate more. We have not done anything to make the inside stable as it became more dependent on the outside. The mind thus has started to become fatigued. Signs of a fatigued mind are visible when the mind is not stable and even small things start to trouble the mind. This situation requires a healing of the mind.

BK ASHA, Director Om Shanti Retreat Centre, in her welcome address, remarked that she viewed those present not as media persons but as human beings.She explained why the campus is called Om Shanti Retreat.

Retreat enables us to step back, see the inside beautiful world that we live.Everyone has their own world, and there is so much inherent beauty and power in it reflected in one's work or profession. The retreat was organised for families. She said that those present had come to a Prabhusthali (a spiritual abode).

BK Brijmohan, Additional Secretary General, Brahma Kumaris, welcomed those present at the program and said that humans are much more than their professional identity. The retreat centre tells us about the meaning of the term 'being' in 'human being'. Spiritual wellness is the common denominator.

Psychiatrist Dr Avdhesh Sharma and Dr Mohit Gupta, Professor of Cardiology, GB Hospital and Maulana Azad Medical College New Delhi, spoke about mental and physical wellness and how these were related to inner wellness.

The event was followed by a visit to the Art Gallery and the campus of the retreat centre.

Sr Asha, Director Om Shanti Retreat Centre, in her welcome address remarked that she viewed those present not as media persons but as human beings.  She explained as to why the campus is called Om Shanti Retreat.  Retreat enables us to step back, see the inside beautiful world that we live.  Everyone has their own world, and there is so much inherent beauty and power in it reflected in work or profession.  The retreat was organised for the family.  She said that those present had come to a Prabhusthali (a spiritual abode).

Media meant information and information is food for the mind or mental diet.  Mental diet is the first factor to change mental health.

Thus, positive information leads information thus determines the perception of society. Media is a power because it creates thought process and perception. It has the power to create the destiny of society. Society is on the decline and media is playing a major role in this. She said that an experiment off 3 months was required to change our mental diet and this entailed not listening in the morning to the information Newspaper and TV channels were giving as they were ‘Tamsik heavy energy food’ implying negative news.

Media has to decide what it is choosing and what it is presenting. She also said that social media messages received needed to be filtered and the messages which were not necessary should be deleted without even reading. Overdose of negative information depletes our mental energy and these results in a collective decline of society.

Psychiatrist Dr Avdhesh Sharma and Dr Mohit Gupta, Professor of Cardiology, GB Hospital and Maulana Azad Medical College New Delhi, spoke about mental and physical wellness and how these were related to inner wellness.

The event was followed by a visit to the Art Gallery and the campus of the retreat centre.

Mr. Diwakar Raote –Hon’ble Cabinet Minister for Transport, Govt. of Maharashtra & President –Road Safety Committee, made the audience to ponder on certain questions like : reaching home early is a must or reaching safely is a must ? Also advised, better reach late rather then never reaching home.

Om Shanti.

Continue to let your thoughts be pure. These have to be purified and you also have to prepare your companions. A mother has so many responsibilities.


Each one definitely has to make effort and seek help from Baba. As soon as you wake up in the morning, tell Baba: Baba, You have to help me in this situation.


Always pay attention to everything and remember. The task is already accomplished. In fact, it is accomplished even before you are told about it.


Are all of you happy and content? Never lose your happiness. There is no nourishment like that of happiness. Baba is always with us.

Peace, harmony ultimate objectives of civilisation: Prez

Hyderabad, Apr 26 (PTI) President Pranab Mukherjee today said peace and harmony are ultimate objectives of our civilisation and progress.

Addressing a programme organised by Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya, an organisation working for global harmony, Mukherjee said happiness and peace are closely interlinked in today's world.

"The basic objective of the organisation (Brahma Kumaris) is to ensure peace, harmony, cordiality between man to man, woman to woman, between man and woman as brothers and sisters.

"On the whole, this is the ultimate objective of our civilisation, of our progress, of our advancement," he said.

Mukherjee said, "No doubt we want economic growth, technological development, scientific pursuit of knowledge but at the end everything comes to a point that we want to have happiness." 

The president said happiness of people and mankind is now recognised all over the world and as a result the international organisation comes out with 'World's Happiness Index' to know where happiness is being pursued.

"Happiness and peace are closely interlinked, one cannot survive without the other," he said during the felicitation ceremony for the president organised by the Brahma Kumaris.
