Bhopal ( Madhya Pradesh ): During the national critical condition prevailing due to the corona virus pandemic, BK Dr. Rina, Centre in Charge of Gulmohar Colony in Bhopal, has appealed to people of the country, on behalf of the Brahma Kumaris, to celebrate the festival of Raksha Bandhan in a Spiritual way, because it is not possible to enjoy any festival in the usual manner.
In the capital city of Bhopal, sisters of Gulmohar Centre prepared very beautiful Rakhis with slogans of self esteem and by observing social distancing, tied them and presented masks, sanitizers and cards of Divine Blessings to the BK Brothers.
BK Dr. Rina while speaking about the Spiritual Secret of Raksha Bandhan, revealed the significance of the Tilak, Rakhi, sweets and coconut used in this festival. At the same time she gave some tips useful to defeat corona. She appealed everyone to remain safe by using SMS (Social Distancing, Mask and Sanitizer) because if We are Safe, our Home is Safe and when Home is Safe, the World is Safe.
Tilak : On Raksha Bandhan, sister applies a Dot of Sandal paste on her brother’s forehead. It is a sign of Success. This year let us put the Tilak by ourselves reminding Self that I am winning over all the external situations of corona and I am the Victorious Jewel of God. To get set in this state, BK brothers and sisters of the Centre did Yog for 5 minutes and people were also appealed to concentrate the Mind in the same way.
Rakhi (Thread of Safety) : A Sister ties a sacred Thread on the wrist of her Brother. It acts as a Safety Cover for him. This year everyone may tie this Rakhi as a Safety Cover of Positive Thoughts in their Mind and just as Karna was safe by his Safety Wear, remind Self being safe as a Special Safe Jewel of God under His Canopy. Not any Negative Thoughts can enter in such a Mind. To achieve this, it was suggested to take out some time to practice Pranayam and Raja Yoga daily.
Sweets : On this occasion a Sister serves Sweet in her Brother’s mouth by herself. Similarly this year, may all the citizens of the country pledge to take Pure and Virtuous Food.
Coconut : Sister offers a Coconut to Brother. This is a sign of wishing him a very Happy and Prosperous Life. Now we must consider that God has given us this beautiful Nature. The entire Globe is front of me and I am fulfilling each and every individual living on this Globe with my Best Wishes for their Welfare.
Gifts : On this Holy Festival Day, in return, Brother gives some Money to his Sister as a Gift. So let us all boost the Corona Virus Warriors and all those Brothers and Sisters who are also fighting with corona, assuring them that very soon this critical situation is coming to an end. At the same time let us all honour them from our hearts.
