Re: The Story of Virendra Dev Dixit

22 May 2018

The Dev Dixit story continues on with a call for him to " Appear before CBI if you have nothing to hide: Delhi High Court to self-styled godman Virender Dev Dixit ", after his ashram's lawyer alleged that Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal was spreading fake propaga...

Re: Delusional disorder

20 May 2018

Of course, one of the big differences between the Brahma Kumaris and the Nichiren Shoshu and Prosperity Churches, is that the BKs don't preach prosperity for the following. It's only their own institutional prosperity they are concerned about and they prefer already enricheded donors. I don't know h...

Re: Delusional disorder

I guess the BK response to this would be, "How could something so big, so international, so wealthy, so famous (it's not really) and with so much property, be based on someone's delusion, or started by a delusional person?" and to consider the proposal as merely a simple insult. It's not. ...

Delusional disorder

15 May 2018

To the Brahma Kumaris, passed down from the inner circle of the Kirpalani Klan to their adherents, Lekhraj Kirpalani was their unqestionable god ... literally ... for the first 20 or more years of their cults history ( although they have since "revised" this embarrassing error and invented...

12 May 2018

Brahma Kumarism is a spiritualist religion based on spirit possession and the allegedly "psychic powers" of their leaders who it is claimed are capable of "reading souls", spirit mediumship, trance messaging and spirit channeling. Not only do they claim their primary spirit mediu...

Re: Newcomer/Exiting BK/Questioning BK

12 May 2018

I am interested in BKchild's experience growing up inside the BK bubble ... or rather, their mother/Father's bubble, inside the BKs' bubble. How they coped with living in two worlds, eg conforming to their parent's desires to conform to the BK world view, and the influence of ordinary, secular socie...

Hi BKchild. Welcome to the forum. We have all been through similar experiences and states of mind as you have, although I would expect not as intensely. I know there is at least one "child of a BK family" or second generation BK on the forum, I'll contact them to see if they are will to sh...

Re: The BKs are finished

09 May 2018

This year there have been no BapDada meetings as Dadi Gulzar now lives in a hospice and cannot perform her ventriloquist act. No one else is prepared to sit on stage and pretend Avyakt Brahama is speaking through them. Double foreigners are leaving in their droves. This is potentially huge if it al...

Re: Experiences of those surrendered, living at the center?

May be she got some beard on her face quite early and she hated it!! Well, she did ... that's a fact ... and there may be more truth to what you are saying than you realise. There's a theory that "we dislike in others what we see in ourself". It was really quite irrational, I don't rememb...

Re: Experiences of those surrendered, living at the center?

08 May 2018

The beard business is a sexual issue ... That's interesting, and logical, I'd genuinely never considered it before. So it's more a problem for the seer rather than the seen, eg like a male minister banning cleavages because they turn him on? I was referring to Jordan Peterson’s work in another topi...

Re: Good quotes

Membership in a religious organization doesn’t make one holy.

A sort of total humility, total surrender to the investigation of truth does.

“Beyond a given point man is not helped by more “knowing,” but only by living and doing in a partly self-forgetful way. As Goethe put it, we must plunge into experience and then reflect on the meaning of it. All reflection and no plunging drives us mad; all plunging and no reflection, and we are br...

Ernest Becker’s 'The Denial of Death'

07 May 2018

Ernest Becker was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1974 for his book ' The Denial of Death '. Perhaps it offers some insights into what motivates us to join the Brahma Kumaris, and to be swept up and live out Lekhraj Kirpalani's "Immortality Project". But why his rather than our own, our own ...

As an aside to this, I don't actually know who " clinical psychologist, public intellectual, and professor of psychology " Jordan Peterson is, I knew nothing about his work until today, however, this article about him - and the schism between Freud and Jung, sort of frames what I am point ...

It seems like you're suggesting that you personally believe there are some sort of mystical supernatural spirit entities (dark or otherwise) ... I think I was careful in my statement to position it exactly as I said (... bearing in mind it was just a casual post on a forum rather than a complete ca...
