Our Arch Angel have ascended
Dadi Janki, Spiritual Head of Brahma Kumaris who helped creating the Spirit of Humanity Forum, has at the age of 104 passed on from this physical life on Friday 27th March.
We are very proud of and humbled by her fierce support SoH Forum, it has been blessed by Dadi Janki from its very start. She has always been modern, unafraid of new ideas, seeing further than others, acting younger than others and seemed to take a great deal of joy in mixing and make friends with all kinds of people, no matter what status they have in the world. She really represents a true spirit of humanity. She flew all the way from India just to participate at the 1st Forum in 2012 at the age of 96, contributing and listening with a blinding enthusiasm and energy after a long haul travel just to travel all the way back to India again. She created a video message for the opening of the 2nd Forum in 2014 and shared a message for our Newsletter. One of her most memorable statements for the Forum came to her mind on the way out from one of our early meetings, when she suddenly stopped, turned around, wagged her finger warningly and said: “Humanity means humility! No Ego!”
