Baba in MySpace

I was checking MySpace.com and found that Brahma Kumaris has a space there, too. Did any of you know that? I found it under groups. Luring Baba has his picture there. Check it out.

What is to love God?

For too long I have been pondering the question, "what does it mean to love God?". The day I left the Brahma Kumaris for good and all, a question, similar to this one was presented to me by a Senior Sister. Indeed, it took me by surprise.

They are a bonding crutch that prevents the individuals to grow into their own uniqueness or avert the discovery of one's own absolut...

Disquisition on Brahma Kumaris as a new religion

Warm greetings to all. I am not sure if it is appropriate to direct the forum to read this article. I found it interesting; Brahma Kumaris: A New Religion? By Reender Kranenborg, Free University of Amsterdam.
