Re: Rape motive suspected in BK killing - RIP BK Dawn Griggs

Strange that I never came across this piece of news. It's really a sad incident. But there are countless other crimes against women and the poor that happen everyday here. And there just doesn't seem to be any end and none of the karmic explanations convinces me thoroughly. By the way, ex-I, from wh...

Now, did you have any friends whose parents were BKs? Yes, I did have friends whose parents were BKs or it was the other way, I knew BKs who had children and invariably they were brought to the centres. Some of them (very young), enjoyed the warmth, adolescents frowned a bit and grown ups came usua...

Thank you Arjun Bhai, Abramakumar and tinydot for your wishes. While we discuss God and spirituality, you would be enjoying the stay in 'God's own country'. It was indeed God's own country...the state is green all over or atleast most the places I visited. I can write something on my trip. I saw a m...

During my final days of my BK life (which was indeed short - 5 years), I was regularly searching about Brahmakumaris and had even created a google news alert. Thats the time when I stumbled upon some PBK sites and that was shocking to me to even know that God doesn't come through Gulzar Dadi, Brahma...

Have anyone heard of a young student, who has never been to Madhuban, reading Murli to other students and teaching the course? I did this when I was in my high school (2+ years BK exp then). A senior brother was particularly encouraging me to do the seven day course. Initially, I used to watch him ...

Dear Sakshi, I offer to translate for you if communication is the problem. I am comfortable with Hindi and Tamil. If you are ready to mail me your answers to me in those languages, or in fact any vernacular language, I can get them translated. Or I have a suggestion - can I compile a list of questio...

Europe seems to be land of XBKs, assuming a large presence of XBKs on this forum.. (Dadi Janaki. Mr. Green would say..) :)

By the way, are there any BK center in the Islamic Middle East?

Welcome on board dear Seva. Hope you have a great time on this forum. Sorry for the delay in response. I was with the Brahmakumaris from the age of 15 to 20. I had a great start as a Brahmakumar. I was treated special for two reasons - I was a kid, I came from a religion that doesn't look upon the B...

Di,

I am not the better person to answer you. Still, my 2 cents - Get your partner on board this forum, so that he gets a multidimensional view of BK - the institution and philosophy.

(But he would eventually read this post right?)

Look Bhai. we are not here for destruction. Rather we are here to change this world. I mean to say that God never comes for destruction. Our aim is to change this world. We teach the transformation of elements of these five elements into the supreme elemtents (light body). Our point here is to disc...

I must tell you that the history of any institution whether be b.k, p.b.k or Vishnu Party it won't pay you the way towards God Shiva. It is only the Godly knowledge which is given directly by the god which is not said in any of the Vanis and Murlis ... which can help us. Sakshi Behan, I have couple...
