On the auspicious occasion of completing 50 glorious years of exemplary Godly service, the Indore Zone of the Brahma Kumaris organized a conference on the theme “Shiv Anand Mahotsav” (Festival of Supreme Bliss) at the Rabindra Natya Grah.
The programme opened with melodious and captivating songs by BK Nitin from Mount Abu, who was also joined by child singers and dancers of Indore.
The auspicious candle-lighting ceremony was led by the spiritual orator Rajyogini BK Sharda accompanied by Mr. Akash Tripathi IAS; Justice B.D. Rathi; Mr. Ravi Dafriya, senior social worker; Mr. Suresh Gupta; Mrs. Sindhu Mendake of the New Digamber Public School; Mr. Hari Narayan Mishra; Mr. Shankar Lalwani; and the Zonal In-charge Rajyogini BK Arti Didi.
The chief speaker of the day, BK Sharda, emphasized that Mahatma Gandhi also had the dream of establishing ‘Ram-Rajya,’ while Swami Vivekananda had gone to the extent of ensuring the ideal change of the world if he were given the dedicated services of just 100 celebate youth. She said that the Brahma Kumaris have as many as 10 lac of celebates and so, although slowly, we are sure of the ideal change taking place. She gave an example of 5 candles of Enthusiasm, Peace, Prosperity, Courage and Hope. While the candle of enthusiasm feels that the world is dominated by depression, the candle of peace is disheartened with the violence and anxiety all around, the candle of prosperity is perturbed at the misuse of one’s riches and facilities by people, and the candle of courage says that everyone seems to have lost power. And all these candles find no use in continuing to keep burning. But the last candle of Hope says that people keep their hope until the last moment of their life. And it enkindles again all the other four candles. Similarly, the Brahma Kumaris are those candles of hope who are sure of attaining their spiritual goal of establishing the Divine world of eternal bliss. She also conducted a spiritual commentary for the Rajyoga practice.
The dignitaries participating in the event appreciated the noble mission and dedicated service undertaken by the Brahma Kumaris. Senior social worker Mr. Suresh Gupta recalled the 50 glorious years of Godly service of the organization in this region. Justice B.D. Rathi gave a detailed introduction of the ideals of the Brahma Kumaris. Mrs. Sindhu Mendake, the Chair-person of the New-Digambar School, said that the teachings of the Brahma Kumaris have made positive change in her life, and that is what she has been sharing with others. She also encourages her students to follow the virtues and values being advocated by the Brahma Kumaris since these can make a positive and healthy change in their formative and prime years of life.
The Zonal In-Charge Rajyogini BK Arti Didi suggested that people should undertake the practice of Rajyoga meditation on a daily basis, even if it is for a few minutes in the beginning. She also informed the audience that the Brahma Kumaris shall be organizing a Free Rajyoga Camp at the Om Shanti Bhawan, in New Plasia, beginning July 16, 2018.
The function concluded with Holy Prasad (sweet) being distributed to the gathering.
