Questions for Bapak’s Birthday

From the National Helpers:

An invitation to fast on Bapak’s birthday from our National Helpers – please share with your groups!



In order to bring ourselves to a more open and surrendered state, our dewan has decided to dedicate June 22, Bapak’s birthday, to fasting and prayer. Our prayer is that we individually and collectively receive whatever we need to become more truly and strongly Susila, Budhi, and Dharma.

We invite all of you to join us in whatever way seems best to you. At the end of the day, we will each test questions about our how we are functioning as a Subud person in our external life, and (if appropriate) how we are doing in carrying out our role in the Subud organization. We offer these questions to those who wish to test them, or you may feel to receive your own questions that are appropriate to your circumstances:

• How am I living the latihan in my life?

• How would God have me live the latihan in my life?

• How am I functioning in my role in Subud?

• How would God have me function in my role in Subud?

When we do this all together, we are supported by our mutual connection, with the surrendered spirit that unites us now and forever.

Love from your national helpers,
Aminah, Laurie, Suzanne, Alexandra, Humphrey, Hoan Toan and Sjarifuddin
