The Mighty Power to Accommodate

Saturday, October 3  | 11 - 12:15 pm
The power to accommodate or, to adjust, is a great power to have. To possess it sometimes means to "live" and lacking it sometimes means to "die". It can determine if you break down or come victorious in difficult situations; whether you remain happy or take sorrow... It makes one resilient and "fly high" or "otherwise "crash". Would you like to learn more on how to acquire this great power and win over life? Or will you settle with losing?

About the Speaker:  Zvika Zur has been practicing Raja Yoga meditation for over 20 years.  He serves as a Raja Yoga meditation teacher, speaker and facilitator of workshops, retreats, and talks offered at Brahma Kumaris meditation centers and Peace Village Learning and Retreat Center in upstate New York.  Professionally he works as a software engineer.

Ten Ways to Create and Maintain

Inner Well Being

Saturday, October 10 | 11 - 12:00 pm
The recent developments in our world have increased our awareness regarding the importance of health and wellness. While many of us are doing our best to stay protected from the virus, we recognize the importance of staying physically fit too. Similarly, it takes time and practice to create and maintain inner well-being, a state where we are healthy in both our body and mind.  

In this talk, we will learn how to integrate wellness into our routine with the right awareness, practice and fun. We could easily find 10 ways of creating inner wellbeing if not more!

About the Speaker: Rashmi Vallishayee:  has been practicing rajayoga meditation for more than 25 years.

Raja Yoga and Recovery

Saturday, October 24 | 11 - 12:00 pm
In this talk, we will discuss the benefits of Raja yoga as applied to the journey of recovery.  The basic tenets of both provide parallels for living a spiritual life focused on inner peace not external attachments.  Through the process of self-examination, prayer and meditation we can achieve a conscious contact with a higher power.  This practice introduces a spiritual solution to our human problems.   Whether in recovery or not this is a design for living which will enhance our human experience of life on a daily basis.

About the Speaker: Richard Kostigen is a business consultant and avid learner. He has spent the last 20 years as a Boston based real estate developer. Like many other successful people, his external accomplishments masked a void in his soul and thus true happiness. He has been on a pilgrimage for knowledge and studies Raja Yoga as well as other disciplines to satisfy his unquenchable thirst for the truth. Richard is the proud father of three children and is blessed with three grandchildren.

We are living in a time where challenges and uncertainty abound and many hold this time as the "worst of times." However, there is another side to the coin of the present moment that offers an opportunity to awaken our spiritual strength, our inner power.

It is a matter of personal choice to either stay in the chaos and fear or to awaken the third eye of spiritual awareness that enables us to see that time and nature are calling us back to our spiritual roots.

You are invited to join us for this special online conversation and reflective experience on

"Being In The Now" with special speakers

Online Retreat - Grow Your Virtues and Flourish - Friday, October 16 - Sunday, October 18


Experience your Inner virtues... heal your heart... still your mind... and become the real you!  

With clear, easy-to-understand examples, and a rich supply of beautiful meditations, the Grow Your Virtues and Flourish retreat will demystify the whole process of living a satisfying virtue-driven life.


When you practice the techniques given in the retreat, within weeks, you will know – not believe, but know - that the transformation you’ve created is merely an example of the power you have to transform the world.

Drawing from her recently published book Oh My Goodness!, Sister Shireen will illumine 39 essential virtues that are conveniently presented in three groups — beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

During the course of the retreat, you will be given a choice of 2 or 3 virtues to dive deeply into from each of the 3 categories. These virtues will inspire you to simplify your life, heal your heart, still your mind, and stay true to your daily spiritual practice. You will connect to the real you, as you pass through this gateway to a new and better life, becoming the person you were always meant to be.

Online Retreat: Building Spiritual Capacity - Friday, November 6 - Sunday, November 8

BUILDING SPIRITUAL CAPACITY
This retreat is about building the strength of the highest self.  The truth of each of us is a loving, peaceful, joyful soul.  When we live our life in the self-respect of that awareness we are happy, we are powerful, and we serve the world around us.  To be stable and resilient in that truth requires spiritual capacity which is built through, attention, understanding, and determined practice.

This retreat will share tools for creating a personal practice that strengthens our spiritual capacity through regular meditation, nurturing lifestyle choices, and a clear understanding of the self. 

Building Spiritual Capacity is part of the Peace Village “Wisdom Series” which has been designed to support serious spiritual seekers in their move to a committed spiritual practice. It is especially recommended for those who participated in the previous retreats in the series “Living Awakened” and “See Only Beauty, Speak Only Love”.  Registered participants will be given the opportunity to experiment in advance of the retreat through suggested practices.

Special Meditation Thursday and Friday: USA centers and classes

11 September 2020

Om shanti and Greetings of Peace,

For the past few days in California, Oregon, and Washington there have been uncontrolled wildfires. Two videos from San Francisco and Anubhuti are attached from our BK family there, who are being impacted by the smoke and soot. No
fire damage.

Also, the USA has had community unrest, hurricanes, and even a Midwest derecho. The country needs our spiritual, peaceful, and calming vibrations.

For tonight and tomorrow, the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we are requesting that all centers share their evening meditation for all the souls who are being, and have been, effected by the upheavals in the country.

Keeping Baba's elevated energy with us, and sharing with our neighbors, is what the time is asking us to be.

Hollywood, Florida (USA): A warm welcome was given by BK Veronica (Miami) to BK Manda (London), who gave a talk/meditation which beautifully set the tone of the Rakshabandhan celebration by Brahma Kumaris in Hollywood.

Assistance from Engineers BK Tej and BK Meeta was invaluable in seamlessly producing this 2-hour zoom meeting where each soul was spotlighted while a blessing was read by BK Etta and BK Roz. The following week, rakhi bracelets and blessings were mailed to the participants who requested them. Jamila and Mindy’s heartfelt songs, as well as singing bowls played by Chamarah, added to the sacredness of the hour.

FREE Self Development Series:”Who is Responsible for Destiny?” – Starts Sept 2

3 September 2020

Milpitas (USA): Who is responsible for our destiny (physical health, emotional health, relationships, and finances)?

You are invited to a free online self-development series, “Decoding Destiny”. Most of us would agree that we create our own destiny, yet there are times when we feel handicapped that somebody else is controlling or destroying our destiny. A feeling of being a victim arises when we think that the reins of our life are in somebody else’s hand. That somebody else could be a person, circumstance, fortune, universe, planet, or God. The blame game starts, and life feels miserable and unfair.

In this series, we will spend time in understanding the creator of our destiny, reasons for it not being consistently beautiful, the karma philosophy (laws of cause and effect), and ways to code or create a perfect life and destiny for ourselves.

In this course, we will discuss Spiritual Knowledge that helps us in understanding the algorithm behind our fortune or destiny. We will practice Raja Yoga Meditation in every class (brief instructions on this meditation exercise will be shared). We will touch upon concepts related to soul and laws of karma (cause and effect).

Little did I know that I had lost the reins over my life and was living an average or below-average life. It’s not like my life was miserable, overall I was happy and had everything in life. Yet, many times I felt that life was unfair, or I could not fix it on my own. A feeling of helplessness and hopelessness would arise at times. The gems of knowledge disclosed to me at Brahma Kumaris are steadily freeing me from my own cage. My confidence is growing because it is getting enough oxygen of freedom to choose and live the life I want. I feel so powerful that I can create the destiny I desire.

Date and Timing: A series of five classes starts on Sep 2nd (Wed) from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, and the next four classes will be on Sep 9, 16, 23, and 30th at the same time.

Registration: Please email jain.meghana@gmail.com for getting the online meeting link to join the class virtually

Cost: Free

Miami, Florida (USA): The BK Miami Meditation center was requested to facilitate a lunchtime session introducing Meditation to a group of employees at BCC Engineering.
