Re: Left BK after 10 years ... !

22 Mar 2019

One of the more blatant transactions we heard of was where a private property was sold in one country, and the money for it came out of the BKWSU in a different country. I think it was India and the UK. My first guess would be it was clearly some kind of tax avoidancy, possibly capital gains, or po...

Re: More Whitewashed History? BK service in the USA movie

21 Mar 2019

Was Remski writing about particular groups or is his stuff based on wide ranging research? The excerpts you have provided made me think that one of the differences between a cult and a religion is (using the words for convenience) the ratio of ”clergy” to ”laity”. Cults have a very solid core group ...

I know we have gone off-topic, but I‘ll just comment that he implies he appreciates being celibate ... between the times that When I’m with my wife, I’m totally with her – we do wonderful things together.

Dear swapnilr76 (where do you guys get these creative and inspiring names? Some supernatural meditation inspiration? ) I for one would like it if the Brahma Kumaris Spiritual University actually did do some serious actual research according to proper guidelines and offered it up for peer review inst...

Re: The oxygen of all cultic mechanisms is deception

19 Mar 2019

Dear cnn22, We admire your enthusiasm and respect your view. After all, we here, most of us, were BKs for many years, myself for about 16 years; and we have been watching the BKs since. We know them well. If you want to at least learn somethings about them that the current officialdom won't tell you...

Re: The oxygen of all cultic mechanisms is deception

The important thing that people who are new to learning about cults and cult behaviour is that in posts like those earlier, lists of signs and symptoms, not all the things mentioned need to be in place. Any one of them, or even others that are not listed - are enough. Just because one cult or guru o...

A Familiar Experience? The individual in the ordinary circumstances of living may feel more unreal than real; in a literal sense, more dead than alive; precariously differentiated from the rest of the world, so that his identity and autonomy are always in question.... He may not possess an over-rid...

Re: Brahma Kumaris is not a cult says BK guru Neville Hodgki

What we know was that Lekhraj was initiated by some Sadhu in Bengal, at a huge price ... from which I think we can extrapolate that that his lack of training, foundation or discipline, and continued submission to the tradition, led him to blowing his fuses. His "I am God Krishna/Brahma/Vishnu/...

Re: Brahma Kumaris is not a cult says BK guru Neville Hodgki

13 Mar 2019

I’d agree with all of that. However, I don’t think the BKs are a new religion separate to "Hinduism" that have borrowed only the nomenclature from various other religions, unless by new you mean, a new blend . Hinduism itself is a variety of ‘blends’. I like the idea of stripping away the ...

Re: Brahma Kumaris is not a cult says BK guru Neville Hodgki

if you look up the definition of cult then I think the BKs qualify on both primary and secondary level meanings. [ C ] Cambridge Dictionary 1. a religious group, often living together, whose beliefs are considered extreme or strange by many people: e.g. Their son ran away from home and joined a reli...

Re: Dada Lekhraj Kirpalani, aka Brahma Baba, married 9 year old wife Jasoda

06 Mar 2019

There’s a thread somewhere on this site of those BKs who’ve died, some by suicide, some by ”misfortune” - often as a result of the BKs influence on their lives. Has little Robert’s story been included? ex-l if you know where it is maybe these last few posts can be put there an Guptarati tell about m...

Another Brother who knew Narayan well, said he mellowed over time; he would attend the transmissions each year. I was told he did a short interview last January 18th, 2018 but this Brother - who lives in Madhuban - told me he died shortly after that. I cannot find validation as to this, however. Bu...

It would be interesting to know which Sindhi families the BKs leant on to get into Guyana/British Guiana. As I read that, it popped into my head that Steve Naraine’s daughter Gayatri was a cousin of Jayanti Kirpalani. I may be completely wrong or it may be a long forgotten fact that popped up when ...
