Well spotted ... it only took a matter of days. Still, copies exist elsewhere. You need to do that with the Brahma Kumaris websites, they are always hiding things. They have a "divine virtue" called "The Art of Revealing and Concealing" ... but I did not imagine it meant information on the internet too!

So, it seems that they don't want people asking for reconciliation or to have somewhere official for individuals to report problems? Or even, perhaps, to be seen to have problems!?!

Using only publicly available information ... you might care to ask Sudarshan Sundar, Brahma Kumaris WSO, 190 Bridge St. 5306, Salem, Massachusetts 01970, USA 1.4254588229, "why?"

So ... did I say something, or do we suspect the BKWSU still reads this website then?

As an aside, also in MA, the BKWSU calls itself, the "Boston BK Learning Center For Peace". No mention of Nuclear bomb-powered Destruction then?
