Brian Bacon's "Self Management Leadership (SML)" has become "Self Managing Leadership (SML)", to which they add a little bit of Tamasin's Ramsay's "Disaster Response" work ... the rest? Who knows. At $ 635, or 28,500 Rupees, it is a hell of a cheap MBA for a Westerner but still more than a year's wages for an average Indian.

Brahma Kumaris Retreat Centers get renamed "PCP Centres" and "The Seven Day Course (Bhatti)" is still in the mix as "which conduct "Personal Contact Programmes (PCP)". It is weird ... a BK course of study which you have to pay for but for which you get a qualification from at the end. Let us suspect they have someone 'in on the inside' of the University offering this. All the "graduates" in the photo appear to be BK virgins with their proud Lakshmi and Narayan badges, so I suspect the chief byproduct is "qualified" ShivShaktis. It is a distance learning university rather than a real one.

Big Borther Mruthyunjaya most folks have down as being one of the inner circle that really runs the BKWSU.

Is there any link between the terrorists and the Brahma Kumaris?

Dr.Mirza Ahmed Baig (34) is an accused in Ahmedabad serial blasts case. Mirza who has an MBBS degree, has been in the jail for almost three years now.

A few months after he was lodged here, he got himself enrolled in ‘Value Education and Spirituality’, a post-graduate diploma course offered by Brahma Kumaris in association with Annamalai University.

BK is charging a minimum of 500,000 Chilean pesos, slightly more than 1 thousand U.S. dollars (if there are 50 people doing the "course") = 25,000,000 pesos, about 55 thousand U.S. dollars of profit.

Angelica Fanjul Hermosilla is the "director" of the "school" in Chile. The address on the page is the "main center" in Santiago de Chile.

No, but I suspect the same fanatical mindset definitely helps.

The Brahma Kumaris PR machine is working overtime as usual ... another 4 other terrorists, including Safdar Nagori who is best known as the SIMI (Students Islamic Movement of India) man who masterminded the serial bomb blasts in Ahmedabad, got top marks alongside a gang rapist on one of their courses. It hard to find such a connection 'funny' but a corrupt policeman could not even get into the top ten.

On the Time of India website, someones in India (not me) make interesting comments ...

Nagori has not become a Brahmakumari. He remains a Muslim.

If you have ever seen a brainwashed Brahmakumari preach, you will see that even Hindus avoid them because they take up so much of your time haranguing about how their leader is God.

brahmakumaris behaving like christians and going to jail looking for converts.....please go to google and look for brahmakumaris info.....the splinter group PBKs accused them for being corrupt, and looting money from people who surrendered. there was a concern that they look for dowry from every lady who is surrendered to the group. PBKs claim that root of all Islam is in brahmakumaris.
SIMI (Students Islamic Movement of India) Safdar Nagori passes 'spiritual test'

Ahmedabad: Safdar Nagori is best known as the SIMI (Students Islamic Movement of India) man who masterminded the serial bomb blasts in Ahmedabad in 2008. Three years later, he is reported to have not just passed a post-graduate diploma course in value education and spirituality but also topped it.

According to a report published in a leading daily on Wednesday, 38-year-old Nagori studied the course, which includes Yoga lessons and is jointly run by Brahma Kumaris and Annamalai University's distance education wing, while spending time in the Sabarmati Central Jail. The SIMI man topped the course with 87% marks. The second position was claimed by Atul Patel, who is in jail in connection with the infamous Patan gang rape case, with 85% marks.

Not just that, among the top five three are Ahmedabad serial blasts accused.

Interestingly, Indian Police Service (IPS) officer DG Vanzara who has been suspended and is in jail in connection with the fake encounter of Sohrabuddin Sheikh, couldn’t make it to the top 10 and ended up 11th.
