Gathering, Special Meditation Session,

World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims (WDR)

The Theme for this year’s observance is
“From Global Remembrance to Global Action: Vital post-crash actions, Medical Care, Investigation, Justice!”
To commemorate the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (BKWSU) has organised a special programme cum Meditation on Sunday 20 November 2016 from
15 30 to 17 00 dedicated to remember the many millions killed and injured on the world’s roads, together with their families, friends and many others who are also affected. It was held at the BKWSU, Curepipe, Mauritius.

People were given a brief glimpse of the programme of the day with clear explanation and how they can collectively participate. One minute of silence was observed for the victims and everyone present sent their good feelings and positive vibrations to them.

Mr A Buchoo, the Assistant Superintendent of Police, of Central Division, Mauritius Police Force, the chief guest of the event also explored the half hour meditation experimentation guided by live commentary in our local language (kreol). He shared his deep experience of peaceful feeling and how his present state of mind metamorphosed in just 30 minutes in such a powerful atmosphere of this Spiritual University. He shared how the various departments of the Police Force are working towards sensitising people through various activities starting from pre-primary level to old aged and the public at large. He heartily thanked the BKWSU for its precious collaboration and support in making a crucial difference in the recent Road Safety Awareness Campaign 2016. Mr Buchoo even announced that the BKWSU was an important stakeholder and will be the prime and priviledged partner in the future to make the road safer. He emphasized that patience is an important factor in Road Safety which can be learnt at the Brahma Kumaris. His end keynote speech was …. to make a better world full of peace and happy life.

Sis Geeta, the Director of BKWSU in Mauritius drew everyone’s attention on the need of qualities and divine virtues. She said how life is a gift, so precious and how we must preserve it. She added that when we are equipped with values, spiritual force, understanding and wisdom we can avoid accidents. She ended with a plea to the audience that we should send good thoughts to everyone daily and start our day with a few minutes of silence.
