Re: Why knowledge sits just in pure intellect?

Hello mbbhat , The reason you may answer your own question with Yes is because both (spiritual) knowledge and purity of intellect are being measured according to BK norms and values, i.e. as taught in The Knowledge (BK™ ... as ex-l might put it ). However, as others have already indicated, knowledge...

Re: You can now be woken up for Amrit Vela

And veering completely off the Amrit Vela topic but I've got to be the first to link to some Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road? jokes... :D

Re: BK concept of "Destruction"

Just to show that it's not just BK's who are obsessed with destruction Why the fascination with the end of the world? Interesting to see if this Wednesday suddenly makes all those failed predictions fade into insignificance... ;)

Re: Why Brahma Kumarism is not Hinduism

  • Brahma Kumarism believes that all BK adherents are brahmins, Hinduism regards brahmins as hereditary members of the highest (priestly) caste

Re: Good-bye to this Forum.

Following on from mbbhat 's translation, I hope that this also strikes a chord with you. It's a famous UK song from the 1960's, made even more famous since it was adopted as the anthem of Liverpool football club: When you walk through the storm Hold your head up high And don't be afraid of the dark ...

Re: Is BK Raja Yoga for the chronically low in self-esteem?

Re: BKs have no love for anyone as told in Murlis

... and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. ‘Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?’ He said to him, '“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the greatest and first commandment.

Re: Basic question to ex-BK's running this Forum.

Hello again sanjeev, It's standard practice to apply moderation on an Internet forum. I've been here for over a year and I've seen a few examples where some members have become quite abusive towards/manipulative of others. I have seen absolutely no evidence of untoward censorship or manipulation by ...

Re: When was this forum actually started?

Hello again sanjeev, I am glad that you had "very good experience". As you might read elsewhere on the forum, like (at least) some others here, my experiences were mixed. My choice of non-BK (rather than ex-BK) when I joined the forum was quite deliberate. It indicated that I had been at most an irr...

Perhaps those I seem to remember the BK's referring to as "simple souls"? Some of my family members are not into spirituality as though it's something separate from "normal" life but they're very good to be around - relaxed, happy, content with life ...

Re: Good quotes

Here's a very good one I've just refound.

This always strikes me as so relevant to numerous ...

Re: I need your help

Hello in_transit , Welcome to the forum and congratulations on having the courage to ask for help - it's often the most difficult, first step! I don't fit the category of "senior ex-BK" you're looking for but I know that there are quite a few here who are very willing and able to engage with ex-BK's...
