Re: The Story of Virendra Dev Dixit

26 Jun 2020

Another well measured investigation into the background of the latest attack on Virendra Dev Dixit. Bringing shame to spiritualism: The story of yet another fake Baba By Pari Saikia - May 18, 2018 In India, 87 percent of people are staunchly religious and spiritual, making way for a booming market e...

Re: Rape motive suspected in BK killing - RIP BK Dawn Griggs

25 Jun 2020

There was a sad footnote to this story we missed. The year after, the New Delhi High Court altered the decision to award the death penalty to life sentence for the offenders. The court proceedings, that detail the crime , makes pretty depressing reading. We highlighted this case, where a Western fem...

God of Gods Movie

13 Jun 2020

Latest BK blockbuster movie. Same story as usual. The story they make up about the Kaaba of Islam representing light is a bit naughty. Haven't watch it, just flicked through. It really is just the same old same old but just with a lot more CGI, stock footage and higher production values than normal....

Re: Jayanti marking her territory

13 Jun 2020

You make her sounds like a cat. I read the first Covid-19 cases have reached Mount Abu (links will go out of date quickly). Which Hansaben is she referring to? Raval or an Indian one? News from Jayantiben in Shantivan: 8 June 8 June 2020 Om Shanti. We were planning to go up the mountain for a few da...

Re: Good quotes

08 Jun 2020

Paraphrased rather than quoted, I think. "In any bureaucracy, the people devoted to the benefits of the bureaucracy itself always get in control and those dedicated to the goals the bureaucracy is supposed to accomplish have less and less influence, and sometimes are eliminated entirely'."...

Re: The Irony

07 Jun 2020

Bizarre disassociation and denial. The film is actually called, "Mind Control Made Easy". The BKs already know that. The Facebook account links to an official Brahma Kumaris "Global Functioning" website that I've not looked at before, however, it appears to not have been develope...

Re: Buy the Products: BKs own line of spiritual consumer goo

How much political/money clout do the BKs have in Abu?

How's the current relationship between them and the locals?

Re: After Raj Yoga, Can There be ANY Faith?

04 Jun 2020

Honest question, Mann. Do you still feel the need for god and religion, or is it the stilling/quietening of your mind that you are after? I suppose looking at Kubler-Ross's Five Stages of Grief concept might also fit in to the process. Working through that the BKs and their god is dead for you, and ...

Re: Buy the Products: BKs own line of spiritual consumer goo

02 Jun 2020

That's basically what we were told. I also got the feeling where a low ranking BK thought to do it themselves, they got a slap on the wrist and told not to. Senior Brothers involved. There is a belief that the BKs will end up owning the whole of Mount Abu. Not sure how the residents feel about that,...

Re: After Raj Yoga, Can There be ANY Faith?

02 Jun 2020

Has anyone else felt this way too? Thank you for posting and welcome. Yes, still, 40 years on. I am shy of doing any other practise for not "fear" but a sort of irritation that I get pulled back in, eg the feelings I used to have as a BK, like pressures on the third eye or 'tickles' above...

Re: Buy the Products: BKs own line of spiritual consumer goo

01 Jun 2020

Bizarre, who or what level did this come from? Could it be third party real estate agents outside of the BKWSU have caught on to what is going on and are targeting BKs - either genuinely, or as part of a scam? Or, like the commercialisation, is it real estate agents inside of the BKWSU? A long time ...

Re: Psychodynamics of Cult Organization: 10-Level Pyramid Mo

Re: Buy the Products: BKs own line of spiritual consumer goo

27 May 2020

There's a lot of old used books and CD on Ebay, not a lot of hardware items. All I can see at present is a ballpoint pen. I do remember there was one purple and grey woven bedspread that was quite tasteful, and a few resin and metallic "disco badges" I used to call them that I quite liked ...

Re: Buy the Products: BKs own line of spiritual consumer goo

26 May 2020

Do you have any vintage rings, shawls or Baba badges? I was thinking of going back in undercover ... ;-). Really old Sakar Murlis are useful too, to show how far they have been reduced and re-written. Most BKs coming into today, have no idea what they were originally like, I think they are down to j...
