Dear Sister Didi, Dear Brother Vijay!
Our two International organizations are spiritually related in global harmony, in its dissemination and recognition around the world. Of course, we are different and on the scale and on the way to harmony. BK exists 75 years and has hundreds of offices in 140 countries around the world. GHA exists 7 years, combining individual and collective members from 80 countries worldwide.
It is well known, the Harmony Temple as the supreme value, the highest goal and greatest Common Good of humanity is the one same for all nations and people, but the way to this Temple are unique for every nation, for every person and for every organization.
Our (GHA) organization goes to it on the path of scientific comprehension of the deep structure, the fundamental elements and the laws of global social harmony, which were most clearly expressed in the last book of the GHA: ABC of Harmony, 2012, in Russian and English languageshttp://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=478.
Your (BK) organization goes to the Harmony Temple on the path of intuitive perception of global harmony, using the richest and most ancient national (Indian) culture of harmony and its powerful intuitive tools of meditation presented in Raja Yoga. Intuitive expression of global harmony is reflected in the unique book of the Brahma Kumaris University: Universal Harmony, 1996, based on the relevant Conference in 1992, - twenty years back! This book is the first and single holistic picture of the global social harmony at an intuitive level, which we are very high appreciate and which we will be happy to publish on our website "Peace from Harmony": www.peacefromharmony.org.
Knowledge (consciousness, mind, thinking, cognition) has the two inseparable pillars, two "legs": the intuitive, sensory, visual cognition, and the scientific, theoretical, abstract cognition. Both are equally necessary to support human cognition and are closely interrelated. But they differ in subject, content and functions. The intuition concerns a visual and sensory aspect of all phenomena. It is purely individual, at least in its identity it encompasses the small groups of people. Every culture and every nation creates its own type of intuition. Science (abstract thinking and theoretical reason) concerns the invisible, deep essence, structures, fundamental elements, and laws of any phenomena. Science is not individual, but universal, the same for all nations and people. But it relies on an empirical basis, including intuition. Developed constructive and productive activity of society requires and is primarily on a scientific basis. on an intuitive basis is carried out only its simplest forms. Intuitive and scientific knowledge, each in itself - is necessary but not sufficient for a holistic comprehension of the phenomena. only both of them together are necessary and sufficient.
This applies fully to the knowledge of global social harmony. on an intuitive level, it simple and visual forms in all its infinite variety are comprehended. However, for the conscious building (forming) harmony of the human, family, and any organization up to economics, politics, government and society as a whole, including the global society - humankind requires one for all the scientific, theoretical knowledge of the deep and fundamental, common for all, structures, elements, and laws.
BK gives the highest level of intuitive knowledge of global harmony. GHA gives the highest level of scientific knowledge of global harmony. Therefore, to our organizations need the close spiritual cooperation and mutual spiritual support to supplement the knowledge and development of harmony in order to enrich each other's instruments of its knowledge, as well as its creation, building and development.
In this direction, GHA offers to BK the following projects as a first step of our close cooperation.
1. Together to declare 2013 as the Year of Global Harmony and conduct on the basis of the BK offices worldwide the joint scientific and practical Conferences: "From the Universal Harmony through The ABC of Harmony to Harmonious Spiritual Enlightenment of the 21st century" with GHA as one of the main organizers and partners of the Conference. This Conference can be held under the auspices of UNESCO or every the UN. For it is possible to involve dozens if not hundreds of different International organizations from peacemaking, and spiritual, including religious, to professional: teachers, doctors, environmentalists, economists, sociologists, artists, poets, etc. The Conference title reflects the two peaks of cognitive pillars of global harmony, created in our organizations. For preparation of the Year of Global Harmony the GHA offers to the BC the following three projects:
2. To support the Harmonious Spiritual Enlightenment, the new Age of humankind, this was launched February 11, 2012 in New Delhi, by the presentation of the GHA book: The ABC of Harmony. In this movement joined school teachers, university professors, etc. The best way to support this movement will be the BK inclusion in it, the ABC of harmony spread in all the BK branches, the use of scientific ideas of the ABC of harmony in the BK training and education programs, establishment of the BK schools and courses for the ABC of harmony in their offices around the world, etc. All of this will be a powerful step in the development of global harmonious education. This inclusion will significantly expand the opportunities and impact of BK in the world, to attract millions of new members who are interested in scientific knowledge and development of global harmony in the synthesis with BK intuitive tools. This inclusion is also very important in strengthening India as a pioneer and world leader of the Age of Harmonious Enlightenment of humanity. BK at its source and content is an organization of India and is interested in strengthening its International authority and prestige.
3. To prepare highly qualified teachers of the scientific theory of global harmony in the synthesis with intuitive tools of its learning, development and building the BK can create in its University a special department (and later - faculty), entitled "Global Harmony", or similar. The corresponding GHA project is presented in the attachment. I am ready to take an active part in the creation and management of this department in this University.
4. Other integral project of science and intuition for our cooperation is World Contest "Muse of Harmony." This GHA project is in the attachment. The First International Contest "Muse of Harmony" the BK could organize and conduct in its headquarters in Mount Abu, then to extend it to their offices in the world. Another option: the first, test Contest "Muse of Harmony" can be in St. Petersburg, in the BK department. Undoubtedly, such Contest would have won the sympathy of millions of women around the world and brought them into your organization. This Contest is the realization of the ideology of women's priority in the creation of global harmony. GHA recognizes: a woman is the closest human being to global harmony, and vice versa, so she is a major creator and muse of a harmonious civilization in the 21st century:
in Russian: http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=388,
in English: http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=363. The BK outstanding female leadership during 75 years – it is one of the strongest evidence of this ideology.
Of course, this and other proposed projects have the great importance not only for BK but also for the GHA. Our cooperation will be mutually beneficial and fraternal meeting the missions of our organizations, and most importantly it will be a powerful new step in our joint service to harmonious spirituality of a new civilization in the 21st century, which gradually, as a result of spiritual enlightenment and harmonious global education, will free from pathologies of leaving industrial civilization.
You see, these projects give BK the new, effective and relevant development opportunities both extensively and intensively for the whole 21st century. They are not limited by vision of problems and focus on the ways and tools to solve them, which is fully consistent with the BK constructive spiritual ideology, as the GHA.
GHA hopes that you will not only discuss our proposals themselves, but also to convey our letter to the BK senior management. GHA intends to collectively discuss and approve this letter to BK, what we do with all of our responsible letters.
Best harmony wishes,
Sincerely, Your Brother Leo,
Dr. Leo Semashko,
