Being introverted

Dear friends,

Om shanti. In the world, they value extroversion. But to experience constant happiness and to experience God’s presence, you need introversion and the power of concentration. One who is introverted is constantly and always happy. When you are in the awareness of yourself as a soul, the poor ego runs away and disappears. We become detached from the ego and arrogance of the body and the distractions of the world. Then we can experience God’s presence. In introversion the soul is constantly happy.

With love, 

BK Janki

Dadi Janki shows that desires take us away from being carefree and independent

Dadi janki

…Finally, I mention Dadi Janki, the spiritual leader of the Brahma Kumaris, based on Mount Abu in Rajasthan, who, 20 years ago, when I was in my 50s and she was in her 80s—she is now 103—began showing me, through her love and compassion, that I, like everyone else, had spirit within me. When we act from that connection, it is good for each of us and for all of us. The vision that Dadi shares has inspired values-based educational programmes around the world in schools, with young leaders, and in the Brahma Kumaris institution."

Lord Stone speaking about Dadi Janki in the UK Parliament (House of Lords), responding to the report by the Commission on Religious Education Religion and Worldviews: the way forward, published in September.
