Re: Chai anyone?

I am going to be away from a computer for a while, so I just wanted to say thank you and see you all later. There are so many issues on here it is a real head spin! This is good for some people who want to get into it, but I think whatever happens in the organisation, even if it implodes or explodes...

Re: A free and moneyless society

Hello bansy, I agree with what you say. free is free. Spiritual knowledge is free. But then (and I am not talking about the projects mentioned in the other threads) but how do you separate or extricate the knowledge from someone who has accepted it or who has inculcated it in their life and who then...

Re: Brahma Kumaris training in production of pure milk?

I have pasted an excerpt from the farmsanctuary.org site, there is another one if anyone is interested called veganoutreach.org and also milksucks.co.uk . In India, dairy milk is considered such a valuable food item. Perhaps because the cows are sacred partly. Also in Ayurveda it is held in high est...

Re: The Tao of the Traveller

It did not look like to me that Robin Bhai was trying to use it to have a film career. I think he already had quite a successful one for a long time, so it seems pretty hilarious that he would use this little film that is hardly a block buster (although very nice) to try and jumpstart a film career ...

Re: Brahma Kumaris training in production of pure milk?

Thank you bkti-pit, I appreciate your reply. I have been thinking about becoming vegan but have not researched this properly. I think I will try to find out about biodynamic. It might mean that it is completely natural (so they are not forced to be pregnant annually) but it doesn't seem so from what...

Re: The Tao of the Traveller

Hello tom, I am sorry if I am not getting it. Really! I guess I support the film because I saw it and I really did like it. I think it is good to show spiritual knowledge through performance and film. It is a way to give people an experience. For me this is something new, and I do get so tired of pe...

Re: The Tao of the Traveller

Yes, that is a good idea. To suggest to them (or whoever is looking after the site) that they say where the money is going. Then people will know exactly where it is going. Usually people do not know anyway when they buy a film, but it is good to tell people. Then they can decide if they want to sup...

Re: Chai anyone?

Hello there tete, well, I thought if I call myself something that I like as much as chai, it can only encourage me to have loving feelings for myself even more! And I am guessing that - no matter where one is positioned in the philosophy of bk, organisational things, differences in opinions or anyth...

Re: Brahma Kumaris training in production of pure milk?

Hello bkti-pit, really thank you so much for your post about milk. Can I ask you - because I am also concerned about the cows but do not have first hand experience like you do - is biodynamic milk 100% okay? That's what I drink in my chai. Either biodynamic or soy, but i really do not know the detai...

Re: The Tao of the Traveller

Hello there tom. maybe - as ex-l said - I really did smoke too much mr green ! I read it again but I do not think it is selling the knowledge in the way that you mean. The public showings that I saw advertised were all free of charge. It must cost something to make the DVD and if it was independent ...

Re: The Tao of the Traveller

Hi ex-l. I read the thread and honestly couldn't get my head around what the problems were. I am not very involved with the organisation at all, so maybe that is why. You are much more well versed on the organisational side of things i think. I do follow all the principles and meditate and go to Mad...

Re: Chai anyone?

hi arjun,
thanks and nice to hear from you. Well ... if you souls use biodynamic milk ... then I could probably come for a visit! Otherwise, I may as well stay put where I am. I only take soy and biodynamic in my chai. Too much suffering otherwise for those sweet cows.

your Bhai,
chai

Re: Prediction of Destruction in 1976

Hello again ex-lady. Although you come across very brother I have to say! Yes, I know those things about them not knowing about god until 1950. It's quite common knowledge now. And I am sure I am probably in denial and whatever whatever, plus a complete wasted dope head, but i am happy with my life ...

Re: Prediction of Destruction in 1976

But he has given a number of SPECIFIC years, e.g. 1950, 1976, specific events, e.g. WWII (1939-1945) as the Mahabharata and approximate dates, e.g. "50 years from the start of the Yugya for Destruction, 50 years for Creation" to "50 to 60 years from the start of the Yagya". Yes, but i have always t...

Re: Prediction of Destruction in 1976

hello. it is interested reading about the dates for destruction. as i understand god has never given a date. it was the people that came up with the dates, combining the feeling of time being short with what they saw happening in the world. it is a bit human nature for people to want to know the dat...
