BBC World Interviews Janki

I couldn't find a link on their site, but just an hour ago I saw on BBC World (im in Thailand) a piece on BK by journalist Emily Buchanan . Pathetic journalism, she did absolutely no research at all and the piece was basically a fluff piece advertising the cult. A great opportunity to contact the BB...

President of India Converses with Dead BK Founder

Have you guys seen this? Pratibha Patil on speaking to a ghost India's muckraking presidential poll The milder criticism of her comes from a curious admission that a dead guru had given her a "premonition" that she was destined to become India's first citizen. Is she still heavily involved? PS I am ...

Actually I emailed WHO about James Lee, but did not get a reply yet, and I saw a contact email address for the UN in general yesterday, so I'll send them an email.

Dada Lekhraj's date of birth is also 1884 not 1876. It was faked to match predictions in the Murlis. This is clearly state in their early works. Are you headed off now? It was good to have a fresh view and a clear mind around here. Thanks and no need to apologise, I appreciate the chance to get it ...

Here's another clip from the lecture, some of you have already seen it. It's called Lee James and the Mystery of the Atomic Accelerator: BK Lee James & The Mystery of the Atom Accelerator . I asked Lee about a week ago to provide more info about that so I could confirm his involvement, no reply yet....

Actually, I err on the side of caution here. Janki was tested in the Texas.. Maybe she was tested, but not by top UT scientists and not at the Medical Research Science Institute. Whether some quack BK "scientist" examined her or not is irrelevent to the claims they made. But in my article, I'll be ...

You guys may have already seen this, but it's still good for a laugh. Dadi Janki talks about those non-existant experiments performed on her by those non-existant Uni of Texas scientists working at their non-existant Medical and Science Resarch Institute: Dadi Janki, now around 90, had many good thi...

I am waiting for some news entilted "BKWSU made biased claim on the most stable mind in the world" or something like that. Who is the news reporter by the way? I got a reply, and this is from an archivist at the University of Texas, and not surprisingly: I have searched the likely places and found ...

Had a fun hour! I only found a few references to that institution on the Net, and each one repeated the Dadi claim. So, if that institute ever existed, it seems all it did was announce Dadi had the most stable mind in the world, and then they closed down. And, of course, scientists don't make claims...

You have not stated whether you were ever a cult member yourself and can understand it from the inside out. Thanks for the comments ex-l! No, I was never a member, so although I have a good idea how people get recruited, I don't have the personal experience of going through it. My interest in cults...

Thanks for sharing. Sorry I did not mean to suggest I thought BKs would / could do something like the sarin gas attacks, I meant the way the two groups operate, recruiting and control tactics, dogma etc. And as Mr Green pointed out, when the End of the World becomes associated with a heavenly new ex...

BK & Aum Shinrikyo?

Hi, Reading about BK's doomsday prophecies and promises of a heavenly post-apocalyptic world, I am reminded of the sarin gas attacks commited by the Aum Shinrikyo cult in Japan. Members believed their attacks would help bring about the end of the world. Has anyone examined the similarities between B...

That's OK, I understand completely. A name would be nice, but with the content of the lecture, how it was advertised, the handing out of BK flyers before and after (despite no mention of BK in the lecture) the misleading way Lee was promoted - a counselling expert, and videos by BK on YouTube, plus ...
