Oath taking for our self-transformation to world transformation by reciting the 3 oath points given below:
- We will be free from “Parachintan, Paradharshan” (Seeing and thinking about others), concentrate on self transformation which leads to world transformation.
- With the realization of this whole world to be “Vasudeva Kutumbakam” (One World Family), will see everyone as brotherly soul.
- Will help souls in distress or pain, giving them sakaash and filling them with peace and power.
A Speech on real freedom from vices was given by BK Muthumani, In-Charge, of Brahma Kumaris in Adyar, Chennai. She said that real freedom is to be free from ravan rajya (ravan’s kingdom), the 5 vices. Then only the real Ram Rajya (Ram’s kingdom) as dreamt by Bapuji will usher in Bharat. Bharat was like a golden sparrow once upon a time and soon will become the same. We have to work on bringing in divine virtues / qualities to go to the deity world filled with purity, peace and prosperity.
