- Can anyone provide me with any Murli references please? That is not what I heard, time and time again, each morning in the Murli. Oh, may be they mean because they believe Abraham, Moses and Jesus are going to come to them to learn Judaism and Christianity.
- Unless they mean spirit channelling and bhogi trance messengers too.
• When did they ever work to relieve poverty? They must be having a laugh.
May be they think that is 'spiritual poverty' or may be they mean by giving people golden palaces and jewels in the Golden Age?
The report goes on to say, " a wide range of events, including a number of Hindu and other auspicious religious events ... Shiv Ratri ... Rakshabandhan ... Janamashtmi ... Diwali etc ".
If was a BK, I would be feeling very confused and uncomfortable to be going along with this. In fact, when I was a BK, I was very uncomfortable.
Am I being too harsh on them?
