What I am demanding is an equal respect for other people's religion and, specifically here, for Brahma Kumari adherents to stop robbing from, bringing into defamation, and manipulating other people's religions. The insult is made even worse where the Brahma Kumaris do not even recognise Taoism founders or existence in their theology (The Tree etc).
You may not be aware but in their dedication to social climbing, the Western BKs of late have taken to stealing ideas and credibility from Taoism (just as they have from the traditions of Hinduism and Raja Yoga in the past). Hypocritically, this is also against Shrimat.
Unlike the Brahma Kumaris, Taoism has, on the whole, a universally positive reputation. There is a small cult of superior Western Brahma Kumaris who seek to use the dressing of Taoist ideas as a garb, or disguise, for their own benefit. To "window dress" their own religion and make it appear more attractive.
Taoism is cool, Brahma Kumaris is not. Brahma Kumarism is about the most un-Taoist religion you could find and yet they disguise their beliefs in what they have taken from elsewhere.
Partly, this has come about because of the intellectual and artistic poverty, and narrowness, of Brahma Kumarism. Taoism is very poetic and universal, Brahma Kumaris is not. Taoist aesthetics largely appeal to aspirant middle class Westerners, Brahma Kumari ones do not. It may be that Avyakt7 is, in essence, a Taoist rather than a Brahma Kumarist, in which case I would apologise to him once he jettisons his own brand of Brahma Kumarism.
This is where all of you here, who try your best to follow Shrimat and Gyan sincerely, will immediately see the contradiction. The god of the BKs is utterly clear about the place of manmant and Bhakti, and yet those that pass themselves off as BKs constantly go about robbing from other religions and stealing others ideas to market themselves and their religion!
Would the BKs have stolen the Koran and Mohammed's words to liken Dadi Janki's superiority to them? No, of course, not. So why exploit a different religion just because there are no fanatics to challenge you? Simple answer ... the BK Moghuls enjoy preying on the weak and undefended, invading their lands and stealing it from them.
It makes me wonder about the symbolism in the Murlis. did not it constantly go on about the Moghuls coming to rob Shiva's temple Somnath? Here they are, not satisfied with robbing all of Somnath, charging over the Himalayas to rob the Chinese and Taoism.
And, funnily enough, the God of the BKs never seemed to mention the Chinese, and their 12,000 to 15,000 year old history, as existing at all.
So which divine virtues or celestial arts are condescension and insult?avyakt7 wrote:Some individuals just never learn.... and rather live life biting like a poisonous snake.
