Re: Veerendra Dev Dixit in trouble

21 Jan 2018

That's absolutely true. The Game of Life is all about the acquisition and sustenance of power, and religion, as well as wealth, is two ways to do it. Remember who the BKs used to openly call themselves, a "Religio-Political Movement"? In my opinion, this thing is not even about the sex ......

Is this a PBK answer to all the accusations?

Something is cooking, but I cannot figure out what. Yes, indeed. That is my feeling and why I am sticking with the story. What is strange is how universally identical all the reports are, and on the basis of unsubstantiated claims, no evidence and no 'other side' to the reports. I find it hard not ...

Another slightly more erudite spin that both 'gets it' but yet misses the point, or rather is steered past it by the Brahma Kumaris. Of course, what the author misses the most, due not just to a lack of knowledge in the topic but the Brahma Kumaris long term and expensive investment into whitewashin...

Or, to put it in another way, a) how bad does BKism have to be to choose PBKism as a better alternative? Or, a) how bad does your life have to be to choose PBKism or BKism as a better alternative? Generally, I used to be defensive of individuals engaging with cults as I recognised that they most of ...

I am not defending whatever Veerendra Dev Dixit is upto. I have no idea whether he is malevolent or "sincerely" deluded. But the manner in which all this is being carried out concerns me and raises numerous issues ... like what rights or alternatives do the unmarried adult females have? Th...

The Foundation for Social Empowerment arrives on the "world stage" with a new 'template' website and a Facebook page . My definition of "social work" does not include "trial by the media", so I am wondering if they are behind the coordination of the media campaign agai...

Not unsurprisingly, the PBK women are now taking action against what must surely be their illegal detention ... We are being kept forcibly in children's home, allege girls The parents of 48 girls, who were sent to children’s home — Minda Bal Gram in Alipur after the raid at the ashrams of Adhyatmik ...

I know how extreme this must sound but I wonder if the new 'Modern Slavery Act' laws might apply? There was that case of the Maoist cult in London where the women were freed after 30 years. It's not about the money, or vengeance, or "negativity" ... I am always wary as BKism writes so much...

Re: Overconfidence and the Attainment of Status in Groups

10 Jan 2018

In the early days, during the Om Mandli, the BKs certainly used aham - as in "aham Brahma asmi", but that became quickly lost in later translations. I'd still like to know the Hindi word they use. My interpretation of what they mean by ego or how they use it - and let's remember Lekhraj Ki...

Re: Overconfidence and the Attainment of Status in Groups

10 Jan 2018

The Sanskrit (and Hindi) words "aham" and "ahankar" both get translated as ego in English ... Much of Hindu-bashing is happens due to the resulting poor translation. I am sure that is true, as in Westerners laying on their own additional layers after the translation, but which o...

Welcome Nathan and ... whew, what can I say!?! We hear you ... we've been there (although not in my own case as far as you have gone) ... and we are out of the other side too. Please allow me to assure you, once the dust is settled, there very much is life after BK. Perhaps we can discuss it later. ...

How authentic are the mission statements of the Janki Foundation? One of the original leaders/founders, Dr Ray Bhatt, told me that initially it was just a vehicle by which they could attract and utilise donations for a hospital up in Mount Abu to serve the interests of the old ladies up there, as t...

The first more serious investigative report I have seen has been published, giving a little more background to Veerendra Dev Dixit's life story, Hardlook: The cult of self-styled godman Virender Dev Dikshit . Funny quote from the BK spokesman, Brij Mohan "He had subverted our muralis for person...

Re: Veerendra Dev Dixit in trouble

What I find curious is most of the accusations being made are questions, or factual events, that we have raised about the BKs (or we have raised reporting others), eg the "BK rape accusations" just a few years ago. Also note how the BKs are largely dropping the "University" label...
