Re: sacrifice AT ONCE!

Sometimes I wonder if things have changed slightly, recently. But actually, just last summer, my center-in-charge made a big fuss about us wearing half sleeve T shirts. So I don't know if puritanism is still lurking and expressing itself in this organisation, after all. Actually the last transmissi...

Where do you think the Yagya is headed ?

I agree that there is not another Spiritual organisation that would be better. I would like to take the good bits from the BKWSU but to abandon the rubbish. I would like there to be a place for those who want to live in the world with their feet planted firmly on the ground. I would like to do away ...

I am doin' well

Hi Everyone I feels as if I am becoming free. Thanks so much for all your posts both now and in the past. I think it has taken me a few months to get my head around them. When I first went onto the forum, I didn"t even understand half of it. I had time to contemplate over Easter and I did not go to ...

Isolation of bros and sisters

Actually, I found that the separation of the Brothers and sisters was great at 1st in the BK's. It was good not having to worry about being too close to these strange creatures initially. I remember going on my 1st retreat. Can you imagine my surprise when I was told off for sitting at a table with ...

It's not just the BK's!

Hi Sisters I met a woman recently who had lost her husband to Taoism. He had also taken a vow of Celibacy without consulting her and had become emotionally shut down and had been meditating a lot. Like we BK's his diet contained no garlic or opinion. She was distraught and she had 3 teenage kids at ...

Re: Duty of care

Not just the BKWSU's duty of care but our duty of care, one's duty to extend one's care to all society whether BK or not BK. Especially, where one has or feels a responsibility for having built up and created what the BK is today. Duty of care extends to not just to previous victims but the future ...

Partners and BK life

Hi Jan,Di, Katie and Proy I guess I am one of those sisters who left her husband because of my involvement with the BK's (actually he had become physically as well as verbally abusive) I am sure that the relationship would not have lasted anyway. Actually I never contemplated another relationship be...

Hi to All thank you for your warm welcome. It's so great to be able to ask curly questions without feeling like a bad girl :evil:. In my own lighthearted 'old school' way, I observe that your nick brings to mind a female rapper of days gone by who performed under the name 'Roxanne Shante' :wink: Whi...

Om Radhe

This is such an interesting topic, i.e. the actual history of the Yagya. We have listened to a lot of fairy stories for a long time from the SS and I always found Mama to be an unbelievable character. These extracts that you have found ex-1 are very revealing. Does anyone know what happened to Brahm...

My First post

Hi I am new and this is my 1st post. I have been following the forum for some months and it has taken me some time to get my head around it. I have been inspired by so many of your posts. Thanks to AK for sharing so openly. This has really touched me and I can so much relate to the quote below. Will...
