how would the Almighty Authority whilst possessing the medium Dadi Gulzar, allow another spirit to come along and speak or even spread negative vibes? hmm - do remember I am only speculating over possibilities here. But research on the channelling of energy from another plane, seems to indicate tha...

Perhaps someone reading this and has knowledge of ancient texts or scriptutal reference let us know if these cycles are shown in their experiences too? The Sanskrit scholar Sri Yukteswar (guru to Yogananda), believed that the current date for the Hindu calendar is in error, and was arrived at, as a...

Our hearts were torn, so, in order to mend them, we have to pull the veil of lies apart. Yes, looking around here, I actually wonder how much I was ever a BK. Clearly some have encountered issues I had little concern with. I came, I took, (gave a bit too hopefully) and then went. Enough though to t...

Thanks for the original link Bansy. The BRI stuff is neccessarily complex. But Yoganandas rendering is not so demanding..atleast not if you're the sort of person used to swallowing cyclic time concepts without blinking an eye! Lost of similarities, but a few more differences: Such as 24000 years ins...

..I don't place and I would not advice placing any weigh on such utterances at all. Its just a ritual they perform to encourage faith.. OK, I understand, but what did you make of the 'energy' present at the meetings themselves? I know of a couple of ex-members who met Baba one on one and though the...

I decided to visit spiritual groups and practise other yogas in my own country first to see what I could learn, pick up the langauge etc. Siddhi Yoga, Sivananda, ISKCON, Eckanakar, spiritual churches ... Ditto with me, but I don't think it was until I sampled BK, that I became more certain of genui...

On closer inspection, it looks to me as though the Binary Research Institute are quite independent of the Self Realisation Fellowship, other than that both share a fascination with the precession of the Equinox. The BRI appears to employ and associate itself with genuine research physicists, in its ...

I recognise this - One of the speakers in the video is from the Self-realisation Fellowship Order. I had some involvement with them before coming across the BK. They promote the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, who may ring a few bells as the author of "Autobiography of a Yogi". Yogananda believe...

Question: Do we think that it is UNLIKELY that after reading that article a student of the BKWSU would have legitimate questions to ask, or even wonder about in private? For most, I would be surprised if it didn’t raise questions, certainly if any of it resonates with their own experience. The poin...

You cannot call The Mail the "most right-wing tabloid" when you have the likes of The Sun. Well, I wouldn't have said there was much dispute about it. Discounting niche markets, there are five national daily newspapers currently targeted at a tabloid press readership. The Mail, The Mirror, The Expr...

I'd welcome some balance to the negative incidents.. Well, Admin could always make a start by applying a bit more fair-mindedness to what's already up there. Here's some ideas to get the ball rolling. 'Bi-sexual Priestess bankrolls Brahma Kumaris' - could also mention that the article is based on a...

hmm ... a war alright, but from what i can see, it looks like bkSimonb et al have pretty much won over the wiki administrators.
