Had she allowed herself to wallow in self-pity after losing her mother and material possessions, actress and environmentalist Chin Chin Gutierrez wouldn't have rebuilt her life as quickly as she did.

Instead, she decided to flow freely with the drama of life.

When Chin Chin spoke recently before a gathering of women at the 3rd edition of the Brahma Kumaris' Women of Spirit series, her face bore no trace of the fairly recent crisis she had gone through. She was perfectly serene and surprised her listeners with the depth of her insights, her sincerity and gentleness. The subject of her talk was "Stability in the Intellect of a Woman." The gathering was held at the BK center on T. Gener St., Quezon City.

Calmly, she explained how she weathered what could be the biggest storm in her life: "Crisis is an experience of brokenness that allows us to remember that we were once whole. You [must undertake the] process of being whole again. Change is inevitable; I have surrendered to it."

The Women of Spirit Series is a quarterly event that seeks to offer glimpses of outstanding women's lives and experiences.

Dadi Janki Becomes Brahma Kumaris Chief Today

Mount Abu, 28 Aug.: After the passing away of Rajyogini Dadi Dr. Prakashmani who remained Chief of Brahma Kumaris for last four decades, Rajyogini Dadi Janki, the additional Chief has taken over as its Global Head as per an unanimous decision taken by Managing Committee and Governing Board of the institution in a special meeting held here today.

Other changes in institution’s administrative hierarchy include the elevation of Rajyogini Dadi Hridaya Mohini, the Joint Chief and Rajyogini Dadi Ratanmohini, Director of Teachers, Training and Chairperson, Youth Wing, to the position and posts of Additional and Joint Administrative Heads, respectively.

Born in a religious family in Hyderabad Sindh in 1916, Dadi Janki from her childhood was deeply religious and philanthropic in nature. At her age of 14, deeply touched by the divine teachings of Pitashri Prajapita Brahma, Corporeal Founder of the Brahma Kumaris Institution, she joined the movement during its inception days in 1937. As an ardent seeker of God and spirituality, she could speedily scale new heights by inculcating spiritual knowledge and values and by experiencing higher levels of rajyoga meditation in her life. In 1974, for her unique spiritual traits, talents and skills, she was sent to render divine services in London and other overseas countries. Armed with rare qualities of truth, transparency determination, diligence, detachment, courage, conviction and commitment to cause of human upliftment and welfare, she could spread institutions, spiritual services and meditation centres in 129 countries in all continents. In due course, she became institutions Additional & Overseas Chief.

Under her inspiring leadership the institution became an NGO in the DPI of the United Nations having consultative status with the UNs Economic & Social Council and UNICEF. She became instrumental in popularizing the practice of India spiritual wisdom, values, ethos, culture, tradition, meditation and life style among people of other countries across the globe. Inspite of her regular globe trotting for rendering selfless spiritual services towards individual and world peace, she has always remained cheerful, mentally positive and powerful even at her advanced age of 91.



New Delhi , Sept. 3:

Religious & political leaders, social activists, statesmen, ambassadors, industrialists, businessmen, judges, media persons, bureaucrats, educationists from cross sections of society paid homage to Dadi Prakashmani, the late Chief of Brahma Kumaris at a Shradhanjali Sabha (condolence meeting) held in FICCI Auditorium here today. (She left her mortal body in Abu on 25th August, 2007 . She was aged 87.)

Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam, former President of India termed Dadi Prakashmani as a visionary & institution builder and condoled her demise a great loss to the organization and to the nation.

Recalling his several visits to Mount Abu and meetings with late Dadiji, Dr Kalam quoted her as how wisely she had said that it was the power of silence which constituted common basis for blending and development of science and spirituality.

Dr Kalam echoed Dadiji's advice and words of wisdom-- "only powerful souls can offer love, can afford to be humble; if we are weak, we are selfish; if we are empty, we take; if we are filled, we automatically give to all"-- that was the nature of Brahma Kumaris who were spreading such human values all over the world, he stressed.

Dr Kalam emphasized that apart from the spiritual discourses and divine atmosphere in Brahma Kumaris premises at Mount Abu, the institution's Global Hospital & Research Centre there which had successfully experimented with preventive cardiology through rajyoga meditation, had always attracted him in the past.

Mr. L.K. Advani, Leader of Opposition in his message condoled Dadi's passing away as an irreparable loss, not only for the institution but for all those who believed that spread of spiritual values was the noblest service that any body could do to this world afflicted by violence and strife.

Mr. Shivraj Patil, Union Home Minister in his message grieved Dadiji's departure from the world as a great loss to the country and mankind.

Mrs. Sheila Dixit, Chief Minister of Delhi; offering tribute to Dadiji in a message said that later was very simple, humble and lovable in nature but at the same time spiritually very strong, noble and dedicated to the cause of human upliftment and world welfare.

Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, AICC President in her condolence message said that Rajyogini Prakashmani was the founding figure & leading light of Brahma Kumaris institution and she represented the best spiritual tradition of our country with her enlightened human beliefs and strong commitment to social and community service. She hoped that Dadiji's radiant legacy would continue to illuminate, guide and inspire the work of the Brahma Kumaris for a long time to come.

Rajyogini B. K. Chakradhari, Director of Brahma Kumaris Rajyoga Centres in Russia and adjoining States recollected how Dadiji used to inspire and infuse confidence among her colleagues and fellow beings through her life examples and practice of values.

Rajyogi B. K. Brijmohan, Chief Spokesman of Brahma Kumaris in Delhi said that Dadi Prakashmani took over as Head of the institution after its Corporeal Founder Prajapita Brahma left his mortal coil on 18th January, 1969. She was instrumental in phenomenal growth of the organization from national to global and in gaining several national and international awards and recognitions for the institution including its affiliation to the United Nations, ECOSOC and UNICEF.

Prominent religious leaders including Mr E. I. Malekar, Head of Judaism in Delhi; Mr A. K. Merchant of Bahai Movement; Govt of Delhi's Power Secretary Mr Rakesh Mehta; Shriram Group's Mr Sidharth Shriram; Eminent Journalist Dr N. K.
