Last month marked the start of this year’s Indian festival season. It started with Guru Poornima, followed by Krishna Janamashtmi (birth of Lord Krishna). Ten days ago we celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi (Ganesha is the remover of obstacles) and just yesterday the beautiful Kerala festival of Onam reached its conclusion. It really is a beautiful time of the year – one filled with lots of joy and fervour, positive vibrations and Divine energy. Despite the pandemic putting a pin in large social gatherings and mass celebrations all over, including in Prashanti Nilayam, this is indeed an opportune time to rejoice. There could be no better moment than now to soak ourselves in His work. Swami says “The Message of Onam is that the Lord is won by means of total surrender of the ego. When the heart is pure, the Lord resides therein and guides man to Himself.” – Sathya Sai Baba Discourse, Prashanthi Nilayam, 7 Sep 1984. I really can’t think of a better way of surrendering our ego than immersing ourselves in an unconditional, compassionate, selfless and loving seva activity such as vibrionics.
I am excited to bring to you this edition of the newsletter through which I can share with you the latest updates and developments in the world of vibrionics.
I’m pleased to let you know that we have gone digital with our courses. This is huge for us as now we can reach many more prospective candidates and also expand the scope of our continuing educational courses to remote areas. Using the virtual platform of Microsoft Teams, we are now conducting live workshops online. We have rolled out courses in English to begin with and hope to start these in other languages over time.
Further to the launch of our transformed new-look website which we hope you have visited, please find below some additional features and functions that will make access to knowledge and information faster and easier. These changes are planned to be implemented by the end of September.
- All case histories to be categorized and linked to the 21 main categories
- All health articles published in our newsletters will be indexed and linked
- Smartphone user interface for easy access on the go
As you will appreciate, developing an effective remedy for any ailment is a continuous process. Our research team depends heavily on the latest data and case histories supplied by practitioners in the field, to upgrade our remedies. (For the latest update, refer to 'In Addition #3' of this issue).The process of developing a highly effective remedy for COVID-19 is no different. Most viruses are DNA viruses; however, COVID-19 is an RNA virus that is prone to mutating and evolving fast. Hence, it is even more imperative for us to hear from our practitioners of their experiences in treating patients with COVID-19, no matter how complicated or simple their case might be. As there is still so much we don’t know about this relatively new virus, and though the pandemic is stemming in some areas, in others there are reports of a second wave hitting, I would urge you all to not let your guard down and continue to take all the recommended precautions to stay safe. Since we are on the subject of treating COVID-19, I’m delighted to share with you that by His loving grace, our COVID-19 Immunity Booster distribution project continues with great fervour with a 30% increase in the number of IB distributed, reaching out to more than 1,80,000 individuals till date, in India alone. This is a milestone achievement and I take this opportunity to congratulate all practitioners for their selfless service.
Although it is mandatory for all practitioners who are VPs and above to become members of the IASVP, many have not registered. Recently, Practitioner 11573 from the Delhi-NCR region in India launched a pilot project to motivate and assist eligible practitioners to become members of the IASVP. I am pleased to inform you that this initiative was a roaring success – within one month, all VPs in Delhi became IASVP members! I would like to expand this drive across the globe so that all eligible practitioners become IASVP members by 23rd November 2020 - Swami’s 95th birthday.
I’d like to remind all IASVP members that they should mention “Member IASVP” in their email signature (at the end of the email) right after their name. Also, with a view to implement uniform standards across the organization, the Secretary IASVP is in the process of emailing our standardized visiting card to all IASVP members. If you have not received the visiting card design, please send your request directly to the Secretary IASVP via email at [email protected].
A practitioner needs to be a role model for his patients, inspiring and motivating them to pursue a healthy lifestyle - mentally, physically, emotionally, and above all spiritually. I call on all practitioners to make a conscious choice to live a happy, stress-free, and healthy life. I’m certain that the myriad of articles on healthy living in the “In Addition” section of our newsletter will serve to be immensely beneficial to all. I invite all of you to share the links to these very insightful and practical articles with your patients, friends and family. Not only will they enjoy the articles but it will also give them an opportunity to explore vibrionics in greater detail via our website content. Also, I request all practitioners to share any wellness tips, thoughts, and suggestions for our newsletter via email ([email protected]) for due consideration by the newsletter team.
I have no doubt that we have entered the Golden Age. The pandemic has given us all ample opportunity to serve those around us and also turn inward to discover and experience the radiance of divinity within us. Let us all rise to the cause and make every day a spiritually charged day so that we can collectively effectuate a massive transformation and giant shift in the overall consciousness of our living planet, Mother Earth, bathing her in pure unconditional love! With that, I wish you all good health and pray that you have bountiful opportunities to love and serve through vibrionics.
In loving service to Sai
