Re: Brahma Kumaris concept of ego

09 Apr 2020

Did you find any of the inner circle truly intellectual, well versed in scientific, religious or philosophical idea, or that "spiritually" experienced? Or wasn't it all just about nudging you back to the simple core ideas? At best, whatever an individual might come out with would be re-in...

Hi dbairsoft I did not quite comprehend the hieroglyphics but got the gist! It's good you were able to pull away after a relatively short time, especially at this part of your life which is a crucial foundational period. You are in a good enough position to set up a decent life trajectory for yourse...

The BK teaching is all about identifying oneself as BK so as to realise one’s 84 birth immortality. There is no evidence for an immortal unchanging individual personal being - but the BKs are an undeniable solid reality! The logical fallacy, the self-reinforcing logical delusion at the heart of the ...

Re: BKs have announced new figureheads; Ratan Mohini & Ishu

03 Apr 2020

My memory of Ratan Mohini is that she was always one of the sharper tools in that shed. Came across to me as more pragmatic and also was a very empathetic person. Whether she is still sharp is another question. Ishu was very much a background figure, a worker bee. Anyway, it all feels like discussin...

From the letter: This Yagya, established by Shiv Baba, the Supreme Father, Supreme Soul, has always progressed in the past, and will continue to do so. When an organisation exists simply so that it can perpetuate its own existence, its original reason for being established is either forgotten, show...

Re: Dadi Janki's death

02 Apr 2020

On Thursday, I saw Dadi Janki and it seemed as if she was getting better. Afterwards I heard that yes, she had been able to eat a little bit of solid food for the first time after several weeks, the oxygen mask was off, all the tubes were off and so it seemed as if she was free, and actually gettin...

Re: BKs fear mongering on Corona virus pandemic

30 Mar 2020

Not surprised to see such schadenfreude on the part of the BKs. I have seen similar stuff coming out of other apocalyptic cults. Religions and cults seem to be responding in one of three ways: 1. Followers are told their faith will keep them safe - no need to follow health protocols like distancing ...

It is common just before death, especially in the aged, for what appears to be a ”recovery” to happen. So those messages may have been ‘honest reports’. I spent a number of years under her tutelage in London. What can I say? At first I thought she was the bee’s knees, by the time I left there I had ...

Corona and/or Krishna? Brahma Kumaris Covid-19 & Coronavirus

26 Mar 2020

Like the major corporations that have made huge profits over the years but will still leverage assistance from governments (i.e. taxpayers), even those that have avoided taxes with all kinds of tricks, so too, the BKs will seek extra help from their wealthier donors and only in the rarest cases will...

Corona and/or Krishna? Brahma Kumaris Covid-19 & Coronavirus

16 Mar 2020

A better film than those older ones that reflects this issue of pandemics in a globalised internet-connected world is Contagion (2011) directed by Steven Soderbergh. Inspired by the events of SARS in the 2003 pandemic and H1N1 virus in 2009 it weaves together the tensions of science, public health p...

Beba 777, I read your post using Google Translate. Your experience and your insights into the BK are very much the same as what many of us here have also realised, even though we took much longer to see it. I took longer than most! I am glad you can have such a positive feeling toward those who beca...

I fully agree with those comments ex-l . The BK organisation as a whole has been continually struggling for relevance and identity, at least since Lekhraj died in 1969 but even before that, as they tried to find a body of knowledge that was their own which would prove accurate and consistent. Despit...

Re: Brahma Kumaris concept of ego

10 Feb 2020

Sr. BK teachers share the crisp definition and explain elaborately on it in classes related to this topic. (In short, ego is explained as soul's attachment to a false image of itself). As soon as the word ”I” is spoken or even comes into mind, that is the ego. There is no more self-contradictory st...

Re: Brahma Kumaris concept of ego

The Brahma Kumaris encourage what they call ”pure ego” which is twofold ”I am a soul” and ”I am a Brahma Kumar/Kumari” At no time does this so-called ”spiritual" university bother to examine what ego is or how it functions, what are its dynamics, etc. The BK teachings are to simply swap one ego...
