New Year Message 2019

15 December 2018

Dear National Coordinators and Centre Coordinators,

Greetings of love

 

 

Travel of Indian BKs to Centres of Outside of Bharat

20 November 2018

 

Dear Centre Coordinators,

 

We are sure that many of you are getting ready for your travel to India for the Avyakt meetings and spiritual sustenance from the seniors.

 

As you will be traveling to India it is good to respect the guidelines set out by the Brahma Kumaris including the DF Travel Database system and the arrival and departure dates.

 

We would also like to bring to your attention some information and recommendations concerning Indian BKs living in lokik families and surrendered BKs who wish to travel abroad.  This can be a welcome support for the centres but sometimes a challenge to respond to these requests.

 

Below are a few guidelines which you might like to use to help you manage the flow of guests and requests of the BKs coming to your country and centres:

 

1.    We request that Centre Coordinators make their students aware not to give personal invitation/sponsorship letters to any BKs from India, without taking consent from the Country/Zone Coordinators, both in India and the foreign country.

 

2.    Please inform BKs from India who plan their trip for sightseeing etc. to arrange their own hotel accommodation and meals. They can be advised to take a package tour which covers accommodation and other facilities.

 

3.    We request that Country Coordinators check with the Indian Centre/ Madhuban before providing accommodation for anyone who has made their own trip to foreign lands.

 

4.    Some Indians have children who are working or studying in foreign countries, and so they visit those countries for some months of the year. Sometimes they are not regular BKs, and may have had very limited exposure to gyan but say they are regular students.

 

We request Centre Coordinators/Country Coordinators to first get confirmation from the relevant Indian Centre as to whether or not they are regular students. 

 

As these Indian visitors have more free time, they think of spending the time at the Centre. Gradually they also ask for facilities, meals and transport to get home etc. We request that the Centre Coordinators inform them of the systems at the Centre and create clear boundaries, as many Centres do not have the facilities, personnel or time. Even if they are regular BKs and bring an introduction letter from their Indian Centre, initially they can just be allowed to come for Murli Class and Meditation.

 

5.    Some Indian BKs living in lokik families or surrendered BKs from India have relatives in foreign countries (mostly Gujarati and Indian families), and so they come on their invitation and stay with them during their visit. If for some reason these BKs come to the Centre for help concerning their lokik family, it is recommended that Centre Coordinators exercise caution and do not get involved in their personal matters.

 

6.    If quality Indian BK students (IP or VIP BKs) are traveling abroad for any reason, and the Indian Centre/Madhuban Seniors have asked you to provide accommodation and meals, the Centre Coordinator can inform them of what is convenient and possible for the Centre. If it is not possible to arrange accommodation at the Centre, the Centre Coordinator can be clear about telling them to arrange their own hotel accommodation. Please take advice from your Country Coordinator/s if you are unsure.

 

7.    Occasionally, Indian BKs living in lokik families or surrendered BKs get some shopping done in foreign lands, and then ask the Centre or students of the foreign Centre to bring their luggage and shopping back to India. The Centre Coordinators need to be firm with them and let them know that it is not practical to carry a third person's luggage these days as airlines are very strict about excess weight and the contents of all pieces of luggage. If there is an unfortunate incident, then the name of the Institution can be damaged.

 

8.    Sometimes Indian BKs living in lokik families or surrendered BKs ask the Centre Coordinators or students for a loan, and say they will repay it later when they meet in Madhuban or India. As Baba's directions about this are very clear, Centre Coordinators need to be firm about not loaning money to anyone, and inform their students about this also.

 

With loving respect for all Baba's systems and maryadas,

 

In Baba’s yaad,

 

RCs

 

Please Note: If Indian visitors wish to visit Madhuban for the Avyakt Meeting as a Double Foreigner, please first ask your NC/NCT to send an email to Didi Nirmala. and Shashiben with a copy to your RC, to request permission.

Media Coverage and news of Br Eric Swaffer and Sister Izabela, UK

9 November 2018

 

Dear Centre Coordinators,

 

It is now more than a week since the tragedy in Leicester, UK when the helicopter belonging to the owner of the Leicester City Football Club in the UK, crashed. Our brother Eric Swaffer was the pilot of the helicopter and his partner, our sister Izabela was also on the flight.

 

This is a note to let you know that on Sunday, myself, Sanjay and Rosemary met Izabela's sister and her partner. It was a warm and friendly meeting, touched with much sadness. Their plan is to have a small, private, family funeral and we at Global Co-operation House will arrange a memorial service for Eric and Izabela shortly after it has taken place. There is the hope that the family will be able to attend.

 

I have been nominated as the spokesperson regarding any media enquiries and would appreciate anyone receiving a call from the media/social media that they first get in touch with Rosemary rosemary.turberville@uk.brahmakumaris.org WhatsApp and UK mobile +44 7952188779, or Rachel rachel.priestman@uk.brahmakumaris.org WhatsApp and UK mobile +44 7944 713750 in GCH.

    

There has been such intense media coverage about it all and the family hopes to avoid any more publicity. We therefore kindly request that BKs refrain from putting any comments out on social media regarding Eric and Izabela and the tragedy. The family is very aware of the worldwide love and regard for both of them and appreciate it very much. They need time to come to terms with their loss.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

With love,

In Baba’s yaad,

 

BK Jayanti

Rings for First Timers during their Madhuban Visit

8 October 2018

Dear Centre Coordinators,

 

Warmest greetings of love,

 

We are writing with regard to those BKs from your Centres who will be visiting Madhuban as 'first timers' this season.

 

As you know first timers are invited to join a ring ceremony during their Madhuban visit and in this ceremony all the first timers receive a special ring which signifies their commitment to this spiritual life. 

 

It is felt that for a commitment of this kind, it is appropriate that the person receiving the ring be 18 years or above. We thank you for your understanding and appreciate the patience of those who have not yet reached this age. When they do, their ring will be waiting for them. 

 

It would be wonderful if you could kindly convey this information to your students in advance of their Madhuban visit. 

 

Much love,

In Baba's yaad,

RCs

Essential Spirituality - A Series of 42 short videos by Sister Jayanti

12 September 2018

 

Dear Centre Coordinators,


We are happy to share with you the fruit of a collective work: "Essential Spirituality" – 42 short videos emerging from an insightful interview with Sister Jayanti aiming at offering a practical application of Baba’s knowledge for everyone. Please see it as a "tool box" that can be used for service in many ways. Here are some examples:
 
- Personal learning
- Video presentation during a public event, workshop or VIP meeting.
- Background for seminars that can be structured as a course offered at the centre on practical spirituality in daily life
- Sharing of the videos on Social Media with your local contacts
 
All the videos are available on the International Website at: http://www.brahmakumaris.org/

 

You can also see how this project has been launched at the same time by a spiritual group called "Conscious Good Media". They really found Sister Jayanti's talks inspiring and they wanted to post it on their website. It shows how Sister Jayanti's presentations are relevant and accessible to everyone.

Dear Centre Coordinators,


It seems there were a few problems with the registration website, so if anyone has registered, but not received an email confirmation, please ask them to re-register.

Also, please ask anyone who is joining this retreat to register by 23 September, and they should receive an email confirming their details.

The RCs are inviting all Centre Residents, Gita Pathshala coordinators and Right Hands of Centres to a retreat in Shantivan from 9-16 October 2018, with the theme of RIGHT HAND INSTRUMENTS FOR BABA.
 
The RCs felt that just as the NCs and CCs have a special annual retreat, that we should have a special retreat for all those living in centres, those coordinating Gita Pathshalas or Class Locations and those Brothers and Sisters that are very involved in service (and any Centre Coordinator who cannot attend the NC/CC Retreat next February 2019).
 
We want the retreat to fulfil your needs, so, even if you are not coming to the retreat, please fill the survey you will find on the website https://goo.gl/forms/Hqw9LpfKy3W4Ii3E2
 
Many of the seniors will be present to give quality time to create an atmosphere of sustenance and learning.
 
In Baba’s yaad, 
 
RCs
