Caring about others can either be an act of compassion or come from self-consciousness. In Raja Yoga we learn about the inner self, the soul. The soul is naturally loving but also aware that it is separate from the body. We typically show our care for others by making the body “behave” as other people would like. As an alternative, we can share with others the positive energy of the soul. If I focus primarily on my behaviour, then I will be overly concerned about how their behaviour affects me. If I focus on using my inner qualities – compassion, honesty, kindness, openness – then I can feel that I have given something of value. I’m not so concerned about whether people like me, agree with me, etc. The more I know, value and make use of my inner self, the more confident I can be of my own value and the value of what I offer to others.

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.
