We’ve all heard the saying, ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way’. Now just imagine the will it took pull off an iconic face formation event. And this was just a precursor celebration to usher in Param Pujya Dadashri’s Grand 111th Birth Anniversary Celebrations at the Jova Jevi Duniya event, which is scheduled from 15th to 25th November, 2018.

It took over 1000 hours of extremely meticulous planning and execution to achieve this feat. Once the plan was locked, members of the execution team were all set to transform the plan accurately into reality. Interestingly people from all over the world took part in this incredible initiative. More than 3000 participants were involved full-time in the preparation and final performance of the face formation. What a reflection of a team-work!

100 professionals choreographed and trained the participants to flawlessly execute the face formation. Several hours of dedication were put in by everyone who was a part of this grand tribute to the Gnanis. Many took time off from their work and travelled to Ahmedabad from different parts of the world, to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime event. Moreover, people of different age groups contributed to make it a successful initiative.

This event was organized on the Independence Day of India, 15th August, 2018 in honor of three Gnanis: Akram Vignani Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, the Embodiment of Pure Love Pujya Niruma and Living Gnani Pujyashri Deepakbhai, who have dedicated their entire lives for ‘Jagat Kalyan’.

The 3000+ volunteers, who participated, stood at marked locations on the huge ground of Dada Bhagwan Foundation and held up placards with both their hands. Although it wasn’t the easiest task to coordinate among so many people of various age groups, the devotion for the Gnanis and enthusiasm of the participants made the whole experience one that they will cherish for a long time to come.

The Face Formation of all three Gnanis and the logo of ‘Jova Jevi Duniya’ were performed with a lot of grace and dexterity. On the first round, Dada Bhagwan’s face was formed and then it was flipped to Niruma’s face. With the second round, Deepakbhai’s face was formed, which was then flipped to create the huge logo of ‘Jova Jevi Duniya’. As simple as it may sound, performing the face formation with over 3000 participants was undoubtedly a mammoth task which required a great deal of coordination. At the end of the day, through the efforts and commitment of all involved the mission was successfully accomplished.

History was created on 15th August, 2018, as this became the nation’s first and largest face formation event. It was also the country’s first flip animation event! What better tribute to the Gnanis, who have dedicated their lives towards transforming the lives of others, than this! Once this huge mission was accomplished, participants celebrated joyfully by doing the Garba on location and spontaneously depicted their unity.

This was the first milestone of the mega celebration yet to come. Depicting transformation, this face formation event is the ideal segue way to usher in the event that we are all waiting for.Jova Jevi Duniya!

Come, be part of this life transforming experience!

Samvatsari

Monday September 10, 2018

  • How long can you resist checking your mobile phone for a WhatsApp message, Facebook update or an email?
  • How often do you feel an urge to share your latest picture or your recent activity online with your friends?
  • How many of you twitter when driving, look for your cell phone as soon as you get up or pose for selfies to post on Instagram?

It’s difficult to resist these trends in today’s era, isn’t it? We might feel that we are connected to people every moment around the world but the bitter truth that most of us will agree to is that, we are disconnected more than ever to those around us. This has led to more stress, lack of trust, misunderstandings and conflicts in our relationships, now than ever before. Over-connectedness to our smartphones, tablets and other gizmos is probably one of the reasons for this menace. Hence, a new challenge that has found place amongst other challenges like a weight loss challenge, happiness challenge etc. is the challenge of TECHNOLOGY FASTING!

“Technology fasting” refers to disconnecting ourselves from all gadgets and connecting to people instead. Medical research says that, while we are fasting, our bodies are in an autophagic state – which means the body is healing and cleaning our cells. Technology fasting gives us scope to free our mind from the umpteen things that we keep doing on our phones, iPads etc, most often to avoid interacting with people because of the fear of not being able to deal with them.

Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan says that, “If someone clashes with you, you do not clash with them; if you can prevail in that, then common sense will arise. You should not clash with anyone; otherwise, you will lose your common sense. There should be no friction from your end. Through another person’s friction, common sense arises in you.” He says, “Common sense is necessary in worldly interactions. Common sense means ‘everywhere applicable’.

This common sense helps deal with the tough situations that arise in our life without getting nervous.

So let us make this Samvatsari a bit more special with the ONE-DAY TECH FAST challenge and instead connect to people personally. “Samvatsari” is a day of forgiveness, an occasion to ask for forgiveness for any hurt we caused other people with our mind, speech and body and to forgive others. Why not do the same with people whom we meet today? Let us take this small step and make our TECH FAST more meaningful.

So are you ready for it?

Learning Never Ends

Tuesday September 4, 2018

Teacher’s Day is about celebrating those people who have had a huge impact in our lives, our teachers! They instill within us knowledge and values that help shape us and make us the best versions of ourselves.

However, does our learning end there, in the four walls of the classroom? No, because life itself is an eternal learning process. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan says, “Without a guru, no knowledge of any kind can be attained. Neither worldly knowledge nor spiritual knowledge can be attained without a guru.” So we have to remain students of life, and let life become our teacher.

Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan calls Himself, ‘the observatory of the world’. He cites examples of His own learning through observation of simple things likes trees, ants, rivers, etc., and how they teach us about humility, team work, adjustment etc. He says that, Akram Vignan is a result of His minutest observations and learnings from things around Him.

On this ‘Teacher’s Day’ let us let life become our teacher and start learning once again.

Are you ready for it?
