Re: Liftman: A Novel by Anthea Church Inspired by BK Experie

04 Mar 2024

The book has received unanimous 5 star reviews on Amazon and elsewhere. Elegance. This is a really beautifully crafted book. It is simply written, which means of course it very well written and written with great care. There is an elegance that reminds me of Isherwood, one of my favourite authors, b...

Kasper’s life becomes dream-like: he doesn’t attend school, instead enjoying freedom and the mascot-like status the community confe...

Destruction did happened as per their predictions ... the lavishing retreat centers ... all represents the SatYuga as per BK predictions. I actually agree with you in that conclusionm, but it's not what the BKs teach. Not that they are honest at all. It would be the easiest way to understand what h...

Destruction New Brahma Kumari website mentioned it is 2026 Do you have a link for that? Amazing ... it's always been 2 to 3 years since the very beginning. When I was a BK in the 1980s, it was the same, "two to three years". They've just worked out that it hooks people in. Soon enough so ...

Re: Is there some legal action to take against the BKs?

11 Jan 2024

You will not finish 84 birth. What do they say now that all of their "top 8" souls and died and taken rebirth again? Doesn't that mean that all of the Dadis were really just 83 birth souls? There's no point asking the BKs anything. They don't know anything. They'll just make up whatever n...

I hope Shivasena moved on in his life. I think he was sincere in trying to point out in the inconsistencies in Virendra Dev Dixit's teachings to begin with but, ultimately, it's pointless to try and use reason, with unreasonable people. As with the old Friedrich Nietzsche saying, "He who fights...

I cannot see the post or member who you are referring to with that link as I am not a member. Can you copy and paste it here? I see Arjun still posts there. I don't know if it is the same person who used that account here, but you could try asking him. It's a very sad situation. Some years ago, I to...

I don't want to sound arrogant but I understand Indian society better than you both in present times, as well as historically speaking ... Perhaps so, but I am not just referring to court details but also the religious materials that they themselves produced. You cannot build an age of truth out of...

Re: The Four Horseman of the Non-Apocalypse

A person of lesser character, who did not have it in him to sacrifice neither himself nor even an iota of his personal wealth/belongings/lifestyle for the freedom of his country ... who was looking for an easy way to satiate a deep rooted inferiority complex of not getting a 'sufficiently high' sta...

Re: BKism: Spirits, super consciousness or psychology?

( I'll aways preface this but admitting that I don't know if anything is true, but I am attempting to report what was said and done accurately ) I once knew a healer who specialised in breaking psychic chords or attachments. Actually, there are many and different approaches to do so, but she was dif...

Re: BKism: Spirits, super consciousness or psychology?

I strongly believe that whatever spirit possessed Mr. Lekhraj did not do it because it wanted to satiate its desires through his body or his followers bodies. I think its a different, far deeper game than we can guess or imagine sitting in the comfort of our homes. Your second sentence is the big $...

Most Western experiments that have taken place take it for granted that spiritual experiences can be induced by altering states of consciousness by use of such chemicals mainly because ... I just wanted to make one thing clear. When it came to drugs, herbs, and alcohol etc opening people up psychic...
