stare at me

Although being a PBK, I do not approve of the method of drishti, I had to explain to him that this method of drishti is followed by the BKs to practice soul consciousness. It would be better if the BK Sisters clarify the meaning of exchange of drishti to newcomers before teaching them RajYoga. Mayb...

double service

Another merging, or contamination, of lokik and alokik habits is that of waking up for Amrit Vela and join a party at dawn, Goa hippies call it "good, morning energy". For health freaks only. Taking the relay from people who are collapsing, having been drinking and taking drugs all night whilst you ...

back to Bhakti

Hi. Thanks for the Prakashmani mausoleum picture. Democratically available for all of us to print it and decide what to do with it, maybe meditate in front of it and get some inspiration or have our evil spirits exorcised. From what I have seen in centers and Bhawans, the trend has been that of hang...

panta rhei

Hi, Sakaash! May I remind you of the renown aphorism, attributed to the Greek philosopher Heraclitus: "panta rhei". Everything flows, everything is impermanent. It cannot last forever. We forget that the longer we dwell on it and give it energy, the more we concentrate on it, the longer it will take...

occult and "cult"

Me too ;) , and with a lot of "occult" stuff in it! Concealing and revising their own history and making everything revolve around mediumship. What do you call that, any appropriate euphemism?

I do not deny that we loved it for months or years and many people still do!!

nothing new, after all!

Hi, Faisu, welcome on the Forum and thanks for your contributions so far. It takes method and patience to come up with such jems. My mind and life function in such a different way that I admire the effort of people who like you dig out for concealed info and publish evidence for all to read on the F...

tourist info

Hi. I had in mind posting a comment in the Hindi/Sindhi topic, but let me do it here, since it seems the appropriate place. Traveling, I got the impression that in India there is not all this worship of saints and the proliferation of mausoleums and tombs that you find in Muslim countries where pilg...

do not ask "Why?"

Yes, I think it is a good question, and we could raise hundreds of more legitimate questions for which we either would get no clear answer or no answer at all. Unfortunately, the SS are generally not available for satisfying such curiosities (eat your soup and shut up!), and it would be particularly...

Re: Gandhi and the Brahma Kumaris

If the culture was really that of "indulging" in sex only for procreation purposes, no wonder interest both from men and women would wane early! In what kind of shape do you imagine those over 60 guys were? How attractive were their wives, once in their fifties or sixties? Is it a matter of "abstain...

sex with Krishna, and Jesus Christ. How are they in bed?

I have heard a similar story and interview on tv, in my country, about a priest and "educator" that took advantage of his position by exploiting sexually a young girl that was enroled for a drug detox program in the rehabilitation center he was responsible for. Also, the priest repeatedly forced the...

making a good impression on ss

Hi, alright. Like the "Lux" soap, success and a strong drive gets you anywhere. But Baba always underlines that there should be pure motives behind our desires, which implies trading in materialistic aims for the elevated, unlimited ones. There's a role for every one in the BK family, although not m...

I have been reading this topic and I felt sick and speechless. I think that torture, in rape cases, would be more appropriate than death sentence. It possibly is the most odious crime one can think of. A good way to 'feel the pulse' of a very diseased world and becoming increasingly common in the we...

mixed fruit lassi

Eclecticism is one of those forbidden things the BKs ask you to abandon when you first join them. The best BK adept, is a young child who knows nothing about life, the world, who has no information, a blank slate on which they can write anything. We are specifically asked to forget everything we lea...
