i remember about 10 years ago Maureen was visiting our centre and the wise women group came up in the conversation. This is a group for older mothers i think, which is/was well attended. She then went on to say that the brothers got a bit jealous of this (my words) and decided to create a wise bhais...

Interesting article no doubt there are going to be a lot more where that came from. as the BKs become more well known there are going to be more people wanting to shoot them down. so the need for transparency i think is vital. I see nothing wrong with one partner being encouraged to become celibate ...

But farting out loud is fine :lol: ... and big burps too. i remember early on in my bk days having to assist with cooking a meal for Dadi and her entourage. She was doing a public programme in our area. After the meal she let rip with an almighty burp and with my best spiritual efforts i suppressed...

Re: Mike George Lies [ ...ooops spin ] and BKWSU copyrightin

This is a BK book (Gyan) published by a lokik publishing house To counter amaranthine's point, the book introduces God, Cycle, Golden Age and all the rest Funny, i thought counter indicated an opposite view. looks to me like we are of the same opinion! as far as i am aware the publishing rights to ...

As baba has neither said this mike george sort of stuff is OK or not OK i'll repeat a previous point. What I personally would be uncomfortable with would be setting up a business that taught that god was a point of light, and that through connection with this being and by also considering yourself t...

i've no problem with individuals incorporating Gyan into their work - and thus getting paid for it. i would think it odd if this did not happen.

Hi ex-l You seem to be a bit miffed that mike is doing well for himself. What is it that he is saying that is so bad and is what he is saying any different from any other self reflective/self development practice that is out there. I've always understood that the line drawn between the lokik course ...

And remember, the person that uploaded them and the person that made them are two diffferent matters. True - good point OK, if it is the real deal why is it on google video and not an official BK site and where are all the BK credits etc. I showed this to our centre coordinators, they thought it wa...

OMG ... this is the funniest thing i've seen in a long time - i love it you are all taking the **** thought aren’t you - i know Indian service can appear unsophisticated but this is so evidently not an official BK video. it looks to me that some guy went to madhuban with a video camera, shot a few s...

I remember being told by a bk that it was generally assumed that in a previous birth Jagdish had been responsible for writing a lot of the Hindu scriptures. He then went onto say, in a somewhat tongue in cheek manner, that this is why the scriptures were in such a bad state (bloated and exagerated)....

Interesting Looks like the same Murli to me! what happened to the 5 year cycle though? its become a year out of sync. I suppose that would account for about 400 Avyakt Murlis that would have been read instead of the sakars? Its even more interesting for the fact that they did not think it necessary ...

An important point like "Shiva doesn't enter a virgin" is changed to read that he indeed does enter a virgin. Then it could mean the difference of Shiva using Dadi Gulzar as a Chariot or not. i've not heard this before, was this a core belief before 1969 or an isolated point in a Murli? i've always...
