Boston: Upcoming Online Events for December

28 November 2020

The Power to Tolerate

Saturday, December 12  

11:00 am - 12:15 pm


The power to tolerate, also known as the power of love, does not mean to give in or simply tolerate any negative person or situation that opposes you. Instead, to tolerate means to overcome that opposing force by engulfing it with love, mercy, and overflowing good wishes. To be able to tolerate any challenge, we must first "die” to our ego. By going beyond the ego, we discover new life in tolerance and its fruit is eternal and sweet. To learn more about the power of tolerance join us for this conversation/workshop.




Spirituality in Food

Friday & Saturday

December 11 & 12


We all know the phrase "you are what you eat".

In this retreat we discuss the subtle impacts that food has on our thoughts and emotions.

Intimate Conversations with the Divine with Special Guest New York Times Bestselling Author, Caroline Myss & Sister Jenna

What makes this impersonal universe intimate is prayer. Somehow, everything you do in this impersonal universe is known. Everything. Your prayers are heard, and they’re answered. Prayer can provide the nourishment we desperately need, and it’s an amazing remedy for those anxious, unsettled feelings we’re all facing right now. It’s never too late to start (or resume) your own dialogue with God. Join us for tips on how to discover your connection with the Divine.

Sister Jenna is an acclaimed, trusted spiritual mentor committed to bridging divides in societies and building relationships between global influencers. She has impacted lives around the globe, inspiring change and finding solutions to current day crises as the founder and director of two Brahma Kumaris Meditation Museums, located in the metropolitan Washington D.C. area.

Caroline Myss is a five-time New York Times bestselling author and internationally renowned speaker in the fields of human consciousness, spirituality and mysticism, health, energy medicine, and the science of medical intuition.

Happy Diwali: Only Be and See Light

18 November 2020


Weekly now, for the past month, a local Penny Saver Newspaper near Peace Village is printing out Thought for the Day articles we’ve been sending in.  This paragraph and photo published a few weeks back gives methods we can practice to become ‘invisible’ in order to have a safe double light angelic Happy Diwali!!

Whoever comes in front of you should only see light. (BD - December 15, 2008)
BapDada showed you in the beginning how a lot of people with impure vision would follow you, but they would only see light. They were not able to see the people; they could only see light. They would only see the angelic form. Similarly, while you have the practice of concentration, you will be sitting in front of them, but they will not be able to see you. They will see light and only light everywhere. This has to happen. However, practice this from now. Become an angel. Achcha. Now, practice concentrating your mind for three minutes. Perform this drill. Achcha

TO ALL USA CENTERS:  Regarding Sis Chandru

7 November 2020

Dearest Sisters and Brothers, Om Shanti and much loved greetings.

During this special time of Sangamyuga, Baba is signalling us to practice inner silence more than ever, preparing us to be ever-ready for serving the world through our stage.

Our beloved Sister Chandru came back to Baba's house today after three weeks of being in the Acute Rehabilitation Center.
Everyone's special tapasya for her during the auspicious time of Navratri have certainly filled the soul and the body with strength.
She is doing well and her health is stable. She has become an image of divine silence and speaks a few words.

We thank you for your continuous support, love and pure feelings towards her good health.

In Baba's yaad-pyaar,
Sisters Kyoko, Sukanya and Br. Harsha

Socially distanced Madhuban Meeting


Nov 1: At the BK Miami Meditation Center


With masks ON and keeping the social distancing, the Miami family came together with great love and enthusiasm for the Nov 1st Madhuban meeting. It was a full-house for the "in-class distancing" capacity and some took turns and left after the morning Murli thus giving chance to others who joined directly for the "Madhuban meeting". Everyone got their Brahma bhojan packed.

Powerful support this week for USA

2 November 2020

Om Shanti, Greetings of Peace


This week is an excellent time to offer your peaceful vibrations for every soul in the USA. It is anticipated that emotions will be running high and  your safe and powerful thoughts, at home or in the center, will benefit all.


We have received some guidance from the UN Plaza building for our offices and it seems wise counsel for our centers and instruments, too.


Enjoy the wonderful drama and stay safe in the Comforter of Hearts lap.

Election Day 'Meditation for America'

2 November 2020

Dear Angels of America,


Sr Judy Johnson and the Halifax [Nova Scotia] family hosted a beautiful 'Meditation for America' last night to lovingly support us while we are going through elections.  The session is available on Youtube for anyone who would like to share it.  I joined last night and it brought tears to my eyes remembering what I loved about America.  This is an excellent meditation for focusing on what is enduring about our country.  It is one hour long.


Tomorrow, at noon central time, the Chicago center will host the  'Meditation for America' video and Halifax will join.  All are welcome to join.  The Zoom id is 509 419 496 no password.


You can also show the video at your convenience.  Here is the Youtube link:



In peace and love,


Brahma Kumaris Meditation Center
