A quick look at the current PR referenced to the list of individuals provided by Om Radhe in 1938.
Firstly, there is no evidence of any "Trust" dated in the 1930s. There was only a management committee. She lived in Hyderabad and the Mandli was in Karachi by then.BKWSU wrote:Dadi Prakashmani, the Chief of Brahma Kumaris left her mortal body in Shantivan, Abu Road today at 10:05 A.M. She was aged 87.
In 1937, when the Brahma Kumaris organisation was being established as a small trust in Sind under the name 'Om Mandali', 14 year old kumari Rama decided to join it and dedicate her life to the spiritual upliftment of humanity. Chosen as one of its original eight trustees, she was given the spiritual name 'Prakashmani' ('Jewel of Light').
2007 less 87 gives a date of birth in 1920. The BKWSU says she joined in 1937 aged 14 ... but in 1937 she would have been 17.
- Did she join in 1937 or 1934?
In 1938, as below, she would have been 15 ... or 18 ... depending on which figure the BKWSU gives you go by.
- But where is her name on the list?
BKWSU presents Om Mandli as a "self-sufficient" community. I am not sure if this is entirely accurate as self-sufficiency essentially goes hand in hand with sustainability and this was definitely not so. They were spending Baba's money and depended later on external donations.
