Nashville, Tennessee (USA): Unity of Nashville honored Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th Anniversary. To talk about the same, Senior Minister at Unity of Nashville John M Mc Lean invited BK Sister Jenna, Director of Brahma Kumaris Meditation Museum from Washington DC for a Workshop on “Head and Heart” at Unity of Nashville’s Sunday Service.
While interacting with the audience Sister Jenna apprised them of the life and contributions of Mahatma Gandhi, while shedding light on the larger relevance of the values of non violence, equality, unity and love practiced by him. She said that it was that one act of getting thrown out of the train that turned an otherwise reticent Gandhi into a campaigner of freedom. He used his faith on Truth as a basis for his demand of freedom and equality for all. It was through the power of Truth and non violence alone that Gandhi could enable a subjugated and impoverished people to stand up and fight for their rights. These values of unity, freedom and brotherhood are ever more relevant today.
Sister Jenna talked about the need to practice universal love to conquer hate and divisive politics. She gave the audience a powerful meditation tool to practice patience and become loving. With this powerful message of unity in diversity, she thanked everyone for honoring her words and sought co-operation in spreading this message all over Nashville and beyond.
