Re: Why do people adopt BK life?

10 Feb 2020

It seems to be part of a "successful" BK to believe and not believe at the same time. The believing part being about fitting in socially, being accepted and achieving status. The not believing part being about carrying on as usual, in opposition to the beliefs, eg amassing wealth and buil...

Re: Brahma Kumaris concept of ego

10 Feb 2020

Do they even clearly definite what they mean by "ego" ? Agree that there is no single literal definition which is used word by word across BKs. But we get lot of cautions in Murli about the context specific symptoms of 'ego' which I feel is equally (sometimes more) effective. Here are few...

Re: Brahma Kumaris concept of ego

10 Feb 2020

The BKs aversion to ego is just plain wrong. We all have a healthy ego, which sustains us all, even on the spiritual path. The BKs need to clearly delineate an authentic and positive ego from the ego of the shadow self. The latter can be destructive and masking to truth, authentic truth. Even the D...

Re: My ‘guru’ raped me, Brahma Kumaris devotee tells court

07 Feb 2020

Please don't take it personally. Ego is a disease and almost all of us are under it's influence. This disease affects our objectivity and ability to see the truth as it is (depending on how much influenced we are). Kind of makes us partially blind to the accurate truth. Your interpretation/speculati...

Re: My ‘guru’ raped me, Brahma Kumaris devotee tells court

07 Feb 2020

The girl has been raped, her name and the story has been published in popular local media. Her mental pain is caused by the violence and hypocrisy of her attacker, along with any social stigma such events may still carry in her immediate society but which should only evoke compassion. It is not cau...

Re: My ‘guru’ raped me, Brahma Kumaris devotee tells court

05 Feb 2020

I am just trying to understand how 'ego' works. A girl has been raped. And instead of understanding the severe mental pain she might be going through and being a little sensitive to her, 'ego' tries to find its 'pride' by using this news to enforce it's view point. Second quality of'ego' is, it shad...

Re: Why do people adopt BK life?

04 Feb 2020

Hi Ex-I, The answer to first set of questions is that I liked 'Gyan' (BK knowledge) very much. Answer to second set of questions is that I am fully convinced with 'core' points of Gyan like: 1) Why should we be in high self-respect ('swamaan') all the time. (Little bit attention is required to ensur...

Why do people adopt BK life?

02 Feb 2020

There are two reasons people adopt BK life - they either need a crutch for dealing with the rest of life, i.e otherwise they’d really fall over, or it is a vehicle for moving forward. I think those who used it as a ”moving forward” vehicle inevitably leave it behind sooner or later because they rea...

Re: Sister Jayanti Chasing £1m Home of Tragically Deceased B

19 Nov 2019

I don't have full context about this case. Particularly without understanding true wish of the deceased soul, it would be inappropriate for me to make any comment. However, if the same thing happens to me, this is what I would wish for as a win-win agreement. Suppose I have four flats in my name and...

Re: Why am I always worrying?

12 Jul 2014

Well, what Baba says about those families which have collapsed after one of the family member followed them wholeheartedly. If God is there(where you think) in manifested form, there should not be even a single case like that. And if it happens, he should put everything right with his mighty power....

Re: Love without borders

12 Jul 2014

more educated the Indian was, the less respect they had for BKs as a religious movement or as having anything to offer and what was the survey size? I guess, you must have surveyed more than a million people before reaching this conclusion :) If not, I'd like to disagree with your conclusion as it ...

Re: Love without borders

Hi Jann, I agree with you that not all the BK student stick to BK rules throughout the life. However, you would agree with me that the benchmark in itself tells a lot. While some organisation are facing serious charges on their Gurus, small-2 events (like someone decides to leave BK and marry) are q...

Re: Non-stop remote viewing and abuse

11 Jun 2014

Hi Chaandneeben, If you feel that anyone is remotely controlling you, first thing you have to understand is 'you have power to overcome that'. When any hacker remotely controls our computer, first thing we do is 1) 'cut connection with his computer' 2) Use firewall so that he can not control it agai...
