Brief News on NCCC/NTC Online Regional Retreat Russian Region

9 August 2020

Dear divine family,

 

We are happy to share with all of you our latest news on the first online Regional Retreat “Divine Experience of Purity and Unity” for NC/CC and NCTs members. It took place on 25 and 26 July 2020 and brought together 65 participants from 13 countries including Russia & CIS, Ukraine, Georgia, and Mongolia as well as 4 senior teachers from Russia and India.

 

Even though we were spread over 8 different time zones.

 

In this Retreat from the Baltic to the Far East, every session was organized in such a way that there was a strong feeling of the whole group being together, sharing their experience and drishti.

 

The retreat began with a powerful online Amritvela meditation, followed by an online Murli class and the opening session with candle-lighting ceremony and sweet greetings from Sudha and Santosh Didis.

 

The program of the retreat included meditation sessions and short classes on different topics about purity and unity conducted by Chakradhari Didi, Sudha Didi, Santosh Didi and Br. Vijay, such as Master Purifier, Claiming Red Diploma in the Subject of Purity, Unlimited Awareness etc.  They were followed by online discussions in smaller groups after a break or according to the participants’ time zone.  Beforehand, a special selection from Avyakt murlis on related topics was made for smaller groups to discuss. 

 

The input from senior yogis set the course for our effort on self-exploring and half an hour drishti-yoga strengthened us, giving an elevated experience.

 

During the closing, seniors shared their wishes and gave their blessings, and participants shared their experiences. There was even a sketch played together by BKs from different parts of the region as well as an online blessing card each participant could choose from the virtual batch!

 

We wanted to express our sincere gratitude to the most beloved BapDada for His blessings, touching and special sakash, our respected seniors for their most valuable sharing and elevated support during the retreat.

 

We also appreciate every participant’s contribution and cooperation which made this event a success.

 

In Baba’s sweet remembrance,

RR Coordinating Team

Enlightening, Enriching and Entertaining (Corona-safe!) Journey of 130 Pilgrims from Russia to Abu and Delhi (and then back to Russia) in March-May 2020

15 May 2020

With hearty gratitude from the whole group to:
Dadi Janki, Nirwair bhai saheb, Nirmala Didi, Munni Didi, Dr. Pratap, Asha Didi and scores of other Godly servers from Madhuban departments (Transport dept. in particular) and Delhi darbar senior instruments for their direct or indirect participation for making this happen.

 

We are 30 years old (or young)!

May is a special month both for St. Petersburg, Russia, and for the BKs’ family here. It is a month of celebrating V-Day (in Russia they mark it on May, 9) and the city birthday (May, 27). Baba also came to this land in North-West Russia in May 1990! Since the moment of its birth, Baba’s lovely child, St. Petersburg BK Centre, has always enjoyed a special luck and privilege to be taken care of by our Dadis and respected senior brothers whose sustenance has been making us grow healthy and happy! We have always had a good fortune of having special jewels of Baba’s yagya visiting Russia on the occasion of our spiritual birthday. The memory store has so many beautiful scenes in it with Dadi Prakashmani ji, Dadi Janki, Dadi Gulzar, Dadi Manohar, Dadi Chandramani, Dadi Ratan Mohini, as well as with our most respected Jagdish bhai saheb, Nirwair bhai, Ramesh bhai and Brij Mohan bhai personally visiting this land a number of times.

 

And this year we are 30! How could it be possible to mark this special occasion without our seniors? But Dadi Janki ji visited Russia just recently, in 2018, and then she traveled widely across the globe, and also taking into consideration her very fragile health condition, it was decided at the teachers’ meeting that we would definitely come to Madhuban ourselves in March, 2020, to extend our heartfelt greetings to Dadi ji personally. Everyone was inspired with the thought that we would celebrate the Centre’s jubilee year in the land of BapDada’s blessings!

 

Days of Silence and Power in Madhuban

The group of about 130 brothers and sisters reached Gyan Sarovar on March, 12-13. The situation with quarantine measures because of the coronavirus pandemics enabled us to spend more quality time in silence and powerful Baba’s remembrance! Our hearts are filled with deep gratitude to Baba and Drama that enabled us to be present in Gyan Sarovar during those days when a unique scene of transition was going on. It was similar to the great transition time of 1969, when Baba became avyakt. Dadi ji’s passing away and moving to the advance party was yet another pivotal moment of the Confluence, because great souls like her, are the hands of the World Drama Clock that clearly give us a signal.......click here for full report with photos.

Yog-tapasya inspirations from Russia - a brief news of spiritual efforts

20 April 2020

A 21-day Unified Yoga Bhatti was organised in the Russia Region from 29th March to 18th April 2020.

 

The aim of this Bhatti was to accumulate the inner subtle power - the power of purity, peace, love, etc. and to spread the light of these powers throughout the world to help the souls who are in need of this light.

 

The above thought came to our minds when our beloved Dadi ji was still in Ahmedabad at the Sterling Hospital ICU. But at that time many of us were still attending programmes in Madhuban. After returning back to the service places it got implemented.

 

More than 400 BKs joined in this special Tapasya programme. They represented 12 countries including Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Mongolia. Because of unavoidable situations, four other countries could not join the Bhatti physically though they were with us subtly.

 

This special programme took place in 60 cities at the synchronized time (11.30 to 12.30 Moscow time).

 

In such a way, we believe, more than 8400 hours, filled with compassion and love from the heart to the brother souls from all over the world, were dedicated during these 21 days.

 

To continue these compassionate moments to the world service at this crucial time we have begun a one-week programme (Week of Ignited Light) with the thought: "I the soul, am an ignited light filled with the benevolent feelings to all my brother souls, children of one Father".

  1. Every BK is advised to practice silence for 4 hours from 9.00 to 13.00 for the whole week.
  2. From 10.00 am to 9.00 PM, one or another BK sits in Baba's room for one hour so there is a constant ignited light of soul for 11 hours.
  3. Each day, one BK will be in the state of Ignited light and will observe silence the whole day (from 9.00 am to 9.00 pm). In addition, there will be a special practice of 4 hours of yoga during the day, besides the yoga at Amrit Vela, the yoga before Murli and the evening yoga.

Of course, all BKs join the International Unified Yoga program which began on 12th April and continues to give its practical fruit to BK family and to the world family.

 

We all appreciate each other for taking a new step of joining the hearts for world service. Success is guaranteed for us in these wonderful scenes of the Drama!

 

Thanks to our respected Gulzar Dadi Ji, Ratan Mohini Dadi Ji, and Ishu Dadi Ji;

 

Special regards to our senior respected brothers Nirwair Ji, Brij Mohan Ji, Karuna Ji and others; and

 

Loving regards to our respected RC Didis Mohinibehn ji, Nirmala Didi Ji, Sudeshbehn Ji, Jayantibehn Ji, Vedantibehn Ji and Chakradhari Didi Ji, for the greatest sustenance which you are constantly extending to the World Family of God.

 

With best wishes to your good health.

 

In Baba's yaad

BK Sudha, BK Santosh and BK Vijay

along with the divine family.

Respect in Action By Sister BK Sudha, Moscow, Russia

7 April 2020

Om Shanti.

 

Sending you an article based on my experience at Amrit Vela today.

This article is dedicated to Dadi Janki Ji.

--

                                Respect in Action

                         By Sudha behn, Moscow, Russia

 

 

Baba has been explaining to us the importance of Amrit Vela, Murli Class, Rajayogi way of life. We all do understand this. HoweveBabr, the question is how much this understanding is visible in our practical actions.

 

When the head of a country or any organization organizes a meeting, the participants of the meeting reach before the arrival of the head and take their seats. Arriving late is a sign of absence of respect for the one who is heading the meeting.

 

Every day at Amrit Vela Baba (God, the Highest Authority, the Supreme, the Almighty, the Purifier) comes to meet His beloved children. He comes from His Home, Paramdham to charge the children for the whole day and to apply on their forehead the tilak of victory. Baba comes exactly at the right time, not even one second late. Should I not sit before Baba’s arrival, ready to be connected so as to get fully charged and get the tilak of victory? I should…

 

At Amrit Vela, Baba gives special sakash, blessings and inspirations to His serviceable children. Should I not come to meet Baba as a child who is worthy of receiving Sakash, blessings and inspiration? I should…

 

Before filling my intellect with pearls of wisdom through His sweet Murli, Baba does a very good massage on the heads of the children, who are close to Him and who value these pearls. This is why Baba asks the children to be in yoga before the Murli begins. Should I not reach before Baba comes to give me a good massage? I should…

 

Murli is the spiritual conversation of the Spiritual Father with His spiritual children, the souls. The souls who know themselves as souls. Only they understand Baba’s language. I want to understand Baba, is it not? Should I not sit in the awareness of being a soul and with full concentration? I should…

 

Baba compares us with the army. Why? One of the special characteristics of army men is DISCIPLINE. Discipline of body, Discipline with respect to time and with respect to following the orders of the commander. We are Spiritual Army. Our special characteristics are also Discipline. We are Rajyogis. We learn to discipline our mind, discipline our sense organs, discipline in our every action during the day and discipline in relation to time.

 

Let us remind ourselves every day as often as possible -who am I, who is mine, what I am supposed to do. This is what our sweet Dadi Janki Ji kept on repeating every day in her every class…

 

Thank you Dadi for your wonderful teachings…
