Never watch TV, but Purchase DTH TV from us - says BKs

Post31 Jul 2011

Great Salesmanship by Mr. Karunakara of BrahmaKumaris. Brahma Kumaris Sisters keep saying to their followers, "never watch TV, Never watch movies ... do not even watch news, do not even read newspaper, etc, etc".

Lekhraj Dada used to listen to Radio while he was alive. At that time, TV was not introduced in India but he used to tell all his followers not to listen to Radio and now the Media Dept of Brahma Kumaris is directly getting involved in selling DTH connections.

From the Murli 19-03-2010
according to the BKWSU, God spoke not wrote:"The cinema is the way to go to hell', therefore, you must not watch films. You have to become pure through the pilgrimage of remembrance and claim a high status. Do not attach your heart to this old world".

How the **** can she be "the best kept secret in the world" when they spend $100,000s a year doing PR to promote her ... making endless false and exaggerated claims about her ... and chasing anyone and everyone they can to introduce her too!?!

Obviously, "the best kept secret in the world" just means "someone I like a lot" to the Janki Kripalani bhagats (worshippers), another way to sell her by portraying her to be something special and exclusive.

Portrayal as exclusive is a powerful marketing tool to specific demographics, particularly aspirant ones, e.g. middle and upper classes.

It looks like the BK PR people and image makers have finally gotten the Kirpalani Klan to shave their beards and moustaches off ... how body consciousness is that!?!

”Best kept secret” is PR speak for, ”we try to advertise but no-one is buying".

Even when I was a BK that sort of PR product made me sick.
