Yes, the young BKs (non-surrendered) are also changing. You can find some young BKs in Western dresses at BK programmes. Even if some of them wear the traditional salwar kameez, it is as per latest fashions. But most of them still continue with the traditional BK dress.

I have observed some young PBKs also coming to the Mini-madhubans in Western dresses.

"For acquiring Brahm Gyan and attaining self-realization one has not to desert his home, nor has he to change his garb, nor has he to spend anything. With Brahm Gyan one will be ever-happy."

You're getting a lot of mileage out of that quote ArjunBhai :lol:

Actually, Mama made a '3-in-one' statement (a precursor for Dadi Nirmalshanta's book by the same name :P ), so I thought the three parts of the same statement could be used in three different threads to thank all those souls who were instrumental in taking pains to upload the book 'Is this Justice' :D.

I will quote some more lines in other threads as and when I complete reading more pages of that book.
