UP bureaucrats to get tips from Sister B K Shivani on spirituality to improve efficiency
Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government will hold spiritual sessions for officials on a weekly basis, in order to improve efficiency and lessen stress on them. The state government has also planned for a live telecast of the programme on its official YouTube channel.
The state government has already invited Sister B K Shivani who will deliver a lecture under the ‘Karya Kshamta Vridhi Vyakhyan Maala‘ (lecture series on improvement in work efficiency) at Lok Bhavan on Friday. B K Shivani belongs to the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Organization.
The state government has put up large stands with posters of the programme at the main entry gates inside the secretariat. The posters carry pictures of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Sister B K Shivani on top.
Additional chief secretary, of the secretariat administration department (SAD), Hemant Rao also issued a circular to all the additional chief secretaries, principal secretaries, and secretaries, urging them to participate in the programme along with other officers of their respective departments.
“The objective of the address programme is to give inspiration for a bright future, get rid of stress and sorrows with coordination between spiritualism and science while leading a family life and living in society. This will lead to an increase in the efficiency of our work and bring about an improvement in the quality,” Rao said in his circular.
Rao has informed the officers about the question-answer session that will follow Sister Shivani’s address. Chief secretary Durga Shankar Mishra will be the chief guest at the programme.
A few years ago, the state government also set up a yoga centre at Bapu Bhavan in the state secretariat. This is the second such programme in the recent lecture series launched to bring about efficiency in the state government’s functioning. Earlier, the state government had invited Dr. Aditya Kapoor, head of the department of cardiology, SGPGI, Lucknow, for a lecture on October 3.
