Re: Source of value education like who writes and how is wri

14 Dec 2018

I don’t know details. All I know is that it was created and compiled by BKs and associates of BKs who have experience as school teachers. Like much of so-called ”BK Literature” and other ‘products', they take what is already out there and freely available, universal truths about harmony and getting ...

all these should not go waste. Documentation is very important. Especially so when an organization is giving false promises every 2 years for the last several decades. They could pull it because there is no documented history On this site is a library and archive section containing much of the lite...

The oversized infrastructure at Abu must have huge maintenance costs so it will be a primary imperative for all centres to keep the numbers of ”pilgrims” up and the donations flowing.

Hi Rajdhani, Good to get input and feedback from a previously passive ”consumer” of the forum. Re Carbon dating - there’s a few topics about it here you can find using the search page. Basically, the arguments against it by Jagdish and other non-experts are, as you'd expect, flawed. They set it up a...

The ”traditional Gyan” taught by the BKs since the late 1960s is that 2036 is to be the date that Krishna marries Radhe (K&R) and they are crowned "Empress Lakshmi and Emperor Narayan” (Lakshmi and Narayan) marking the official beginning of Sat Yuga, the Golden Age, and end of Sangam Yuga, ...

Rita,

The hypocrisy of such Murli points is blatant. There are others where BKs are told that attachment to the BKs is good, that having ego as BK is good, that is ”pure ego” ... and so on.

What is a ”soul” anyway?

28 Nov 2018

I came across this on Quora. Someone asked "Do you believe humans have souls?” This answer, from a biblical scholarly perspective, reminded me of the fact that when we deal with ”intangible” abstractions and things ideological and conceptual, they can mean almost anything! We mostly get our pre...

That’s very true ex-l, Culture is a very powerful shaper of values and motives I think this reversion to ‘type’, in terms of Sindhi bhaibund ”mercenary” behaviour, was inevitable, happening as it did after the early failures of the predicted (and revised then failed again) end of the world ultimatum...

He may be the BKs' god spirit, but can he really be the supreme of all Gods? Henotheism: The viewpoint/belief that there may be more than one god or deity, but only one of them is worshipped or considered highest Abrahamic monotheism began as the tribal god being considered the right one for that t...

One small thing I will add which may help in gaining insight into how a newcomer’s fascination with BKs, like your Father’s, becomes an obsession. Small, but significant, and may take quite a few words. If one has gone through life aware of the concept of a ”spiritual” side to life, ideas like medit...

The Doctrine of Fallibility “How can we admit that our knowledge is a human - an all too human - affair, without at the same time implying that it is all individual whim and arbitrariness? Yet this problem had been seen and solved long ago; first, it appears, by Xenophanes, and then by Democritus, ...

Dear Prerna, As ex-l said, when someone is in the grip of a delusion, logic and reason is rarely effective. Consider all the different beliefs people have. If logic was the key, they’d all convert to the most logical one. Although its true that more and more people are accepting scientific and ratio...

How do we make him realize that he is falling into a trap? I suggested earlier you make a list of what is good and what is causing problems, then go through it with him and analyse to discover whether anything on the ‘good’ list is unique to BKs and are any of those problems it is causing specific ...

But in the morning my mother makes breakfast and he would say not to make for him as he is not hungry etc etc. though sometimes he would act really normal and even eat junk food with my Brother and Sister. This is part of their ”food” principles. They see factory made processed food as less ”infect...
