Support for Chandrubehn

17 October 2020

October 16, 2020

Dear Bapdada’s most beloved instruments of USA:

Greetings of love.  As we enter into the Season of Fall, we are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of silence and yoga.  We are encountering situations of ‘suddenly’, which require being more in the tapasya of ‘eknami’ in the remembrance of One Baba.

Our dear Chandrubehn has been having challenges with her body and is at present in the hospital.  I am requesting that we all dedicate 10 minutes of yoga after the Murli class and together with Baba to send her sakash for a fast and strong recovery.

I am suggesting that we do this for 9 days, during the time of ‘navratri’ starting tomorrow, October 17 and concluding October 25.  Let us be united under the canopy of one strength and one support.

With love in Bapdada’s yaad
Sister Mohini

Om Shanti to Friends across the globe, I hope this finds you well.

The year 2020 has certainly been a strange and distressing year. As the coronavirus pandemic spreads through the world, movie theaters have been closing worldwide and blockbuster movies are being pushed to 2021 releases or even being cancelled. People are finding new ways of conveying stories.

It will be released at the United Palace of Spiritual Arts, New York's iconic entertainment venue and artistic hub in the heart of Washington Heights.

Footnote by Sr Jenna:
I wanted to share with you something new we have put together. Our first docufilm from zoom from meditation sessions we held. We took it from the limited into the unlimited. It has opened me and the team up to learning more about some talents, creative forces, visions, and interests we had merged. 

This film is also to remove the hype of sensationalism and to believe in something simple and truthful from home during a pandemic. It's on a few networks now... I am already catching thoughts for something more..;-)

See the link here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btraGK9NWL4 
Description from the YouTube page:
" Zoom Meditation is a 2020 documentary film written and directed by Sister Dr. Jenna and produced by America Meditating Productions. The film focuses on meditation in a Zoom world and explores how a diverse group of individuals are using meditation as a tool for mental and emotional well being during these challenging and disruptive times."

Dear LVE stars, educators, parents and friends,

Loving greetings.  I hope this finds you and your circles of family and friends doing well.  It is an unusual time, a time that is unsettling in many ways.  My hope is that we will emerge from this with more kindness, love and compassion.  Meanwhile, let's be light and courageous as we live our values of peace, and equality for all. 

The eight-session LVE Webinar on Zoom went very well, with people from many countries in attendance.  There was rich sharing of experiences and we all enjoyed very much.  Many thanks to Rita Cleary, Natasha Panzer and Annie Jorgensen for moderating, and the LVE leaders in different regions of the world who shared some of their amazing work with LVE over the years. 

Dr. Leena Khanzode, a Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist in Los Altos, California, is on the LVEP, Inc. board of directors.  She is certified in teaching Mindfulness to Parents, Children and Teens and has kindly offered to share some podcasts with you.  Some of them are for teens, and some for parents.  They are listed below.   I hope you enjoy them.  Thank you so much, Leena.  

With love and all good wishes, take care,

What is Mindfulness:

Mindfulness is paying attention to the present moment with kindness and curiosity, so you can choose the right behavior. You are bringing you kind and curious  attention to the Inner world - your breath, sensations in the body, thoughts, feelings and looking at the choices to choose the right behavior and the Outer world without any judgement and accepting everything as is.    

Dr. Khanzode shares below some of the mindfulness exercises she has conducted before and recorded:


Here are the individual links to Mindfulness Exercises for Parents and Teens:

Compassionate Non Violence

03 October 2020

The subtle fabric of the soul is complete peace. A violent thought, word, or action is like a tear in the fabric, it harms the soul before it touches another. When feelings of fear pierce the soul, people may behave in violent ways. The corona pandemic has seeded an atmosphere of fear and panic, allowing waves of exclusion, resentment, and prejudice to emerge. Compassionate nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. On the International Day of Non-Violence, let us come together to spread waves of compassionate nonviolence in the world.
