Re: Will the Brahma Kumari cult end by 2036?

11 Oct 2018

In my experience, there’s two main kinds of people who find the idea of the world ending as desirable, that it resonates with. The first kind are those whose experience of the world (materially but more so psychologically) has always been insecure, on the brink of collapse. This includes people who ...

I would insist on no stickers, BK paraphernalia or BK talk in the family home.

Rita, I did not understand from your earlier posts that your mum has been involved with BKs for 15 years!! Much of what I suggested was based on thinking it was relatively new. I don't think what I said previously will make much difference at this stage. As you are a grown adult now with your own li...

You’re welcome. I’ll just add one more thing I have thought about since reading and replying earlier. When I said " The BKs also provide an alternative space away from the duties and worries of the household where a person can sit quietly and get some mental quiet time ” it may be helpful if yo...

I’d like to add that the BKs are not demons or devils. Even if they see non-BKs as such we should not do the same. The reason they get a hold on people is that they are human beings, they do actually have a good side to them, they can be caring and empathetic to others. Certain individuals are reall...

Re: The End of the World is Coming: BKs Buy More Property

Rajni added, “Our chief Dadi Janki is 103 years old ... Really? That means she was born in 1915 and was therefore 20 or 21 years old when the Om Mandli began, which the BKs today say was in 1936. But she apparently did not join straight away due to having a child and joined two or so years later,. ...

Re: Indian News Company wants Brahma Kumari 'Family Tragedy'

YSWarkare There are many people who have posted here from India, and many from outside. many people share here for a while then drop off the forum, so they are not always currently reading to see your post with your invitation. For Indian TV, I assume that local stories where they can send a crew to...

Good points ex-l, I have seen how BK students fall for the glamour of being indirectly associated with fame. The organisation has achieved a level of ability to draw in famous names from different fields to speask at events etc. The BK student proudly (not humbly or detachedly) tells others - we hav...

When I talk negative about this organisation people have only this explanation even prime minister follows BK. I take it from that statement that you are in India, which is where the BKs play their main game - the rest of the BK world mainly exists for PR purposes (they can brag in India), and for ...

Re: What Can We Learn From The Children of Cults?'

17 Sep 2018

I remember one specific example, Dr Eileen Barker in the UK, argue how, "we should not be looking at cults to criticise them for suicides, but examining cults to see what they do in order reduce suicides". This was a point I was arguing against in a few recent posts in this and other topi...

Re: What Can We Learn From The Children of Cults?'

GuptaRati, I would disagree with the adjective ”universals". They may not be unique but they are far from universal. Do they fit into a certain bigger set of similar ”possibilities”? Yes. But in the end, what we have as human beings is a gift of reason and proportion (rationality) to ask and co...

Look forward to viewing this later. Meanwhile here’s a link in another video a few weeks back some may have missed, the topic called" EX cult members answer questions from the Public” from a show called ”You can’t ask them that!” - no narrator, just the ex- cult members talk to camera based o q...

b) something like the original meaning of the term "virgin" was not for a woman who had been stopped from having sex, but a women who was in control of her own sexuality/sexual activity. There is nothing I can find in the etymology to suggest that other than it may be that the one way wom...

Re: Child Abuse & the BKWSU VI

I think I can say it ”used to be” the same here in Australia GuptaRati. In the 1990s, there were many rumours and allegations of a secretive circle of the social elite - judges, politicians, business identities - who were involved in paedophilia, pederasty in particular. When a female state MP broug...
