The Prajapita Brahmakumaris rose to the occasion assisting the civil administration in Goa, India, during the Covid lockdown crisis, by distributing immunity boosting Ayurvedic tea among policemen on duty as well as assisting office of the North Goa collector in packaging essential items for supply to the needy.
When the state government appealed for assistance during lockdown period from March 31 to May 3, the Prajapita Brahmakumaris unit in Goa responded enthusiastically.
“The sisters of Brahma Kumaris sewed masks in keeping with the medically approved design and distributed them at the district collector's office and other government officers, said Shobha Behenji, Goa Zone director, Brahmakumaris.
This is a great example of how spiritual institutions can work in tandem with state governments to plug the gaps in manpower or resources or facilities during times of humanitarian crises, and ensure proper and timely services to those in need.
The Prajapita Brahmakumaris is the only spiritual organization in the world led, administered and taught by women and they have teaching centers in almost all countries in the world where they teach their religious philosophy and meditation techniques freely to the public. One of its dominant themes is the empowerment of women to roles of spiritual and social leadership throughout the world to effect positivity and harmony in society.
