Hi Proy, I did not see you so far. I started out on the forum as a BK and now I am an ex-BK. I don't hope it is not representative for BKs in general ...! I do not like being told what to do and what to think That's normal. But I fear that it is always like that. When it is not Baba who tells us wha...

I have no confidence in science when they speak about long time ago. I don't know what I have to think about Baba's world history. But one thing I know is that the BK in general have no right attitude towards this topic. They call themselves a "World University" but almost make no attempt to clear o...

Hello Jakeyboy, Me too. I have embarrassment and so I became very careful to speak (in general) and particullarly about this knowledge. I am not sure what you mean by "a load of bull" but my first thought was; 'Indeed, they call him a bull sometimes, Brahma baba. It's an image from Bhakti. So the Kn...

Alladin, I am very sorry that you feel that way, with your teacher in charge, but you cannot generallies. My teacher is very strict concerning the rules, sometimes narrow minded, I think but not 'superior'. If any brahmin treats another soul inferior we have to pity him/her, cause he/she is under th...

After 17 years of BK for me I still wonder (almost every day) how it can be possible that I am the only one between the brahmins I met who questions some or the other about this topic!!!! Has it something to do with Baba's famous "stone intellect"? What kind of stone is it that is in the heads of mo...

History

Hello, Up to now I never heard of a Brahmin who is historican, paleontologist, archeologist or so. I always like to hear something about someone like that, how he/she deals with the sometimes very different visions between Shiv baba's Gyan and worldly knowledge or science. If someone can bring me in...

I can feel very much what you write, Alladin. The factor "escapism" is, I guess, a major one throughout history of 'Bhakti'. But is it not the whole purpose of the emerging of The path of devotion, to finely escape this hell of a world to become reborn in heaven? But true mahatma's like Gandi or mo...

Well, I was born as BK 17 years ago. The first 6 years I came and went and stayed in total for 3 years. Then I stopped totally for 6 years. Now I am back for 4 years but in a much slower manner. And more at a distance.

It seems not logical to start with a poll. How can we answer questions about someting new and unknown like this site? The first poll was OK but to know how impartial this site is asks for much experience because there are a lot of people on this site and impartiality will probably vary from much to ...

I always get a newcomerstext here. Although I posted several times. I live 15 km away from my centre. Last year in september the teacher offered me to give a weakly murlipacket. Since then I could read the daily Murli, and I did. So maybe I am more lucky then the one's here? I never felt it controve...

Hello abrahma kumar, Your name reminds me of the book "The Eternal World Drama" by Jagdish Chandler. Do you know it? Read it? There is a Chapter "World history from Adam to Abraham". Brother Jagdish explains something about the name 'Abraham', that it stems from 'a Brahma', like Brahma. This aside, ...

Hey Zhuk, What is "lol"? In my language (dutch) it means 'fun'. Abrahma Kumar, you write: While Shiva gats ALL our love to the exclusion of real, loving experiences of ourself AND our fellow humans. Is "gats"= gets? For me it seams logical when Shiva gets our love, automatically everyone gets it. I ...
