I was introduced to Brahma Kumaris years ago. It was an occasional mention from someone, a reading in the paper, a discourse / documentary / TV program, an ad / pamphlet, a revelation by someone who attended their session, a transformation from someone who benefitted from practicing their teachings, etc. etc. etc.
If you’ve never heard of Brahma Kumaris, a note below from their website : We are individuals of all ages and backgrounds who regularly attend classes at more than 8,500 centres of the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University located in 110 countries. We study spiritual knowledge that nurtures respect for all faith traditions, coherently explains the nature of soul, God, time, and karma, and delineates an enlightened lifestyle. We practise and teach a form of meditation that relaxes the mind and nurtures a healthy balance between our inner and outer worlds. Through numerous social service activities and partnerships, we promote spiritual understanding, leadership with integrity and elevated actions towards a better world [Src: http://www.bkwsu.org/]
While there are many public faces that propagate the learning’s and teachings, I personally find Sister Shivani’s articulations very thought-provoking. She has excellent clarity in thought, knowledge and depth on a wide range of topics, is able to articulate exceedingly well - simple, clear and precise, is able to communicate many concepts in IT language, gives real life examples and most importantly, talks about issues which are important in every-day life in a very logical, scientific and analytical manner. Her series on “Awakening with Brahma Kumaris” which features on Astha Channel every night is worth a watch. Every episode will definite leave you with a few learning’s, insights, perspectives and something to ponder about…
Interestingly, I just discovered that she also has a Facebook page and a blog.. Links below:
