BK Mohini Panjabi B/P a private business out of a BK center

Post25 Oct 2015

Can someone explain to me how the Brahma Kumaris in the USA (BKWSO) works financially?

According to public records, e.g. "BK Mohini Panjabi B/P" is a private business out of a BK center. It's address is "46 S MIDDLE NECK RD GREAT NECK, NY 11021, T: (516) 773-0971 which is, of course, Global Harmony House, National Coordinating Office for the BKWSU in the USA.

Since 2006, it reports an consistent "Annual Revenue of $55,000" and an "Employee Count of 1". That one being BK BK Mohini Panjabi herself. Presumably it is her pay or expense fund?

Mohini Panjabi B/P is listed under "Amusement/Recreation Services".
B K Mohini Panjabi B/P is a Instruction Schools, Camps, and Services business in Great Neck, NY.

According to the BKWSO articles Article 4(h),
No part of its net revenue shall inure to the benefit of any private individual

I don't have recent accounts but the 1999 Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax ($6,105,364 assets, $3,553,601 income, $1,008,359 expenses) stated it paid no wages. At June 2001 IRS ruling date, no financial report were made and total assets reported were $0 and total revenues reported were $0, so I don't know how they have changed their financial accounting. Any ideas?

There are no links from their website. I suppose openness and transparency would be too much to ask from our angelic little friends?

From the most recent filings, there seems to have been a name change to "Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Organization, Inc" (Business ID: 1009384) around 2010, as a branch of a Texas company 3417285 (presumably Hansa Raval's BKWSO - Texas Tax Number 17419461904?) and they operate;
