PEACE Program, the Corporate Workshop wing of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS), organised an impactful online event on the International Day of Older Persons on 1st October 2021. Attended by about 250 senior citizens from all across India, initiated with DJJS, the event aimed at empowering them with confidence and zeal to live a meaningful life while staying young at heart forever.
It all began on a thumping note with a heart-stirring presentation on screen, “PEACE Social Experiment with Older Babies”, which was launched on PEACE social media platforms the same day. The video carried a virtual walk-through of the joyful yet inspiring activities organised by PEACE Program during the visit of its 40 young and dynamic volunteers to an Old Age Home, the Earth Saviours Foundation in Gurugram, on 18th September 2021. The visit aimed at sharing warmth and care with great oldies and bring smiles to their sad faces.
A strategically designed Four-therapy Model by PEACE Program was also described in the video. The visit news was covered by the leading dailies, the Times of India and Live Hindustan.
Further, in the online event, Sadhvi Dr. Nidhi Bharti Ji and Sadhvi Manimala Bharti Ji, Principal Coordinators, PEACE Program, held some interesting yet unique activities that made participants reflect upon their revered Spiritual Mentor, His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, Founder & Head, DJJS, and the Shining Light behind PEACE Program.
Participating with full gusto, the attendees also danced to old melodies while sitting at their homes.
The PEACE Coordinators also shed light on two therapies out of the aforementioned Four-therapy Model.
Therapy no. 1 - ‘Fondle the Babies in Big Bodies!’ inspired all to go back to their childhood and enjoy things the same way they did as kids.
Therapy no. 2 - ‘Propose them to Pose!’ encouraged them to always enjoy facing the camera and pose with shining expressions on their faces.
This was followed by a session by Sadhvi Tapeshwari Bharti Ji, Principal Coordinator, PEACE Program, who went ahead with explaining the two remaining therapies, along with demonstrations and polls, eliciting instant responses of the attendees.
Therapy no. 3 - ‘Plz…No Age-Bar for Fun!’ encouraged them to always stay ready for complete enjoyment in life.
Therapy no. 4 - ‘Be Eligible for million dollar blessings!’ inspired the grand elders to emerge as a nourished personality through regular practice of BrahmGyan meditation and become eligible to bless their children with prosperity.
Sadhvi Ji also quoted the words of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, “The society has enough highly equipped and well-furnished old age homes. Now, we must build such a society that is equipped with a high moral value system so that these old age homes become obsolete. There is no necessity of old age homes. We need to build such a society where children learn to respect their parents, value their presence to such an extent that such old age homes are no longer required. So, we wish to communicate the same to the society.”
The event concluded with Sadhvi Ji motivating the participants to follow the Four-therapy model to attain permanent peace and happiness, and set an example for the society.
