Essential Spirituality

jayantibhenEssential Spirituality is a collection of 42 short videos intended to spark deeper reflection on the subtle inner terrain that holds the solutions for many outer maladies.

Our guide on this journey is Sister Jayanti Kirpalani, who is exceptionally articulate on the subject of spiritual knowledge and practice. For more about Sister Jayanti,. Her gift is her ability to explain “lived spirituality” in ways that instantly make sense, inspiring others to apply it to their lives. Off camera in these recordings, but occasionally visible, are Eric Le Reste and Judy Rodgers, who have worked in media and are long-term students of raj yoga and its applications to living in the world. They helped develop the concept and frame the questions that drive this video series.

Though these videos are collected into three sections, you may select those that have the most relevance for you. Watching these videos will stir your mind, but if you want a deeper experience, it will be important to find the meditation commentaries at the end of each section, and watch those, which will help you integrate what she has said into your personal life. To make your meditation more effective, keep the eyes open and watch the video as you listen to the thoughts offered by Sister Jayanti.

We hope you will use this website as a way to explore your own spiritual dimension and practice the concepts proposed in order to make your higher values a reality.

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.
