I know that there was an official definition of this but I cant remember it! I see it that, I am a BK in terms of following Shrimat and my fundamental beliefs in Soul, God, Drama but I am not actively involved in the BK organisation system which I no longer trust or have faith in. They would say tha...

Nice one exl! • number one; self respect- its yours. do not let anyone; even comments in the Murlis, take that away from you. • true Raj Yoga is not about having no possessions but being mentally detached from them. do not go throwing away all your books, cds dvds etc. • love yourself. Appreciate yo...

Blimey. Why cannot BKs say that they just want to watch movies and escape without everything having to be linked to Gyan!!!! I want to watch the new Harry Potter but haven't gotten round to it yet. Now then ... Dumbledore as Brahma (especially for those whove read the last book ... appears in some s...

Personally, I think this forum SHOULD be the anonymous forum that any BK knows they can come on, report abuse or raise issues that they want to, without fear of having private letters circulated between the SS and center-in-charges or being frozen out. I argue that we cannot trust the BKWSU to enab...

It also upsets me that they want to target, empower or hold responsibile one or two individuals when that ignores both the objective spiritual issues being raised here and the contributions of so many. Is she has no agenda, perhaps we should put to her the issues we wish to raise now? Thanks for th...

Out of interest, is there a Murli quote saying directly, "thou shalt not make the Murlis publicly available"? I guess I'd never questioned the line before that, "souls wouldn't understand and it would be disservice" but frankly, most souls wouldn't be that interested ... and there are now Murlis pub...

Had these prior email exchanges been posted on here? And who is the group of BKs behind this approach? I am certainly not sure what Our organisation is constantly changing in response to changing needs and times. means! Does that mean it's OK to drop our basic values in order to get exposure and fun...

Do I take it from the last screen dump that you do have access to the Murli system ex-l? I am surprised that there are no really good hackers on the forum who have managed to find their way around this! I suspect there is a central monitoring system which can tell when and from which IP addresses do...

I also think that there is an underlying basic assumption here; that by wanting to speak to a few, a few are "controlling" the forum. Is this true? Is the forum really being manipulated by a few folk who just want to smear the BKs in order to create more recruits for the Shankar party? From my obser...

These are interesting times! I think admin's questions were reasonable and fair. I also think that it is an unfair burden to put on 1 or 2 individuals to expect them to represent the whole forum; and it is unfair to the rest of the forum; who may not feel like the nominated representatives represent...

Personally, I find witnessing Gyan done badly 100% worse than any Bhakti. I do not have problems with Bhakti. Everyone has to do their "thang" and there are lots of forms of Bhakti which are very subtle which even the atheists buy into. Whereas I guess I have a feeling for what pure Gyan should be a...

It is possible to have a bk life which is TOTALLY Bhakti; I would say 90% of Brahmins are practicing this ... it has all the trappings of and the attitude of Bhakti, i.e. fear, following other souls rather than a direct connection with God, manipulation and this, lastly and most important, carrying ...

Point taken. I haven't got any expectations up here that any of 'em have "seen the light"!! However, I will be interested to see what if any response is made to any of the questions that people here have, regarding both historical details and current practices that run contrary to Shrimat - especial...

were Stress Management and Self Esteem, both presented by BKs in BK centres, The original Self Esteem course, which I attended in Madhuban, always finished off by introducing God, His qualities and His relationship with souls.

And your point is?! Unfortunately, that piece of Shrimat seems to be ignored, and money is taken from any source possible. Sorry if this seems abrupt, but the random giving of Murli points with no context is not terribly helpful, and I am sure someone else here would have said it if I didnt ... :wink:
