Oh, please ... "Baba gave the soul a touching."

I spent the first 6 months in Gyan trying to work out who the hell the sisters was talking about.

Another one was, "The thought comes ..."

Instead of saying, "I think" every thought is filled with the importance that it came direct from God himself. Where did this stuff come from? Who started it? It took ages to learn to speak like that. ... more checking.

Does: "The soul has left Baba" qualify as BK speak?

I had a good laugh with that one Abek. (I just read your other post)

What about "The name of this body is ..."?
The manner in which a pukka BK introduces themself by indicating that their name is NOT the name of the soul (which has no name) BUT the name of their body only. Consder to be the soul-conscious way.

Or how about when one gets praised for service, then the standard is ..."No, baba is doing".

Very often in a group it comes particular language like identification. For example, as children we used to have some expressions only we could understand. It adds to the feeling of belonging to the group and closeness.

You must be a second birth Brahmin, ...or your a very old soul. A good friend of mine once coined the phrase "I used to be an heir soul, now I am just an a***hole :lol:. Don't forget the omens of Rahu and the rings of Uranus.

"To bring benefit" ...

Yuk. This is what happens when a BK merely graces a non-BK (or Shudra) with their presence, either individually or collectively. BKs don't just meet other people or do lectures, they "bring benefit" to others. Closely related to "service" which means proselyte or "do PR" or promotional work for the BKWSU. As in;
  • "BK Benny went home to 'serve' his lokiks, 'brought benefit' to his old school friends and 'gave Baba's introduction'".
Which means,
  • "Benny went home to see his parents at the weekend to make the BKWSU look good because they were worried he had joined a cult and tried to get his friends to do the 7 Days Course".
"Be Stable in Drama ...", which means;
  • "I think I am going to cry but I am not allowed to show it ... and no body else do it or else it will set me off".
Usually restricted for the death of another Senior Sister.

"Take the pulse" ... meaning try and guess how much 'service' or 'Knowledge' you can get away with in a conversation or meeting without freaking the non-BK out and making them think you are some religious nut.

We could always start our own ex-BK 'speak' or language similar to the T-Shirt slogans we came up with a few months back ... but with our own particular meaning ... I think Mr G should start it off ... 8).

Dear all,

I think this is a really good idea/development. In my early days in Gyan, I tried to get to grips with Hindi and got a BK document from GCH with translations of common Gyani words/phrases from Hindi into English. Maybe we should develop an informative and/or humorous ex-BK dictionary/thesaurus?

I've had endless hours of amusement with those dictionaries which translate English idiom directly into (say) French or Dutch and then give the French or Dutch expression, which is actually used to mean the same thing, and then doing the reverse for French or Dutch idioms. My favourite is the Dutch equivalent of "it's raining cats and dogs" which translates directly into English as "it's raining drainpipes"... 8).

Love and best wishes,

Here goes (to start off ...)

'Sit for Yoga' - The undefined art of sitting on the same spot for endless hours staring at some little light in stuffy conditions and trying desperately to hold onto your gas, but having to adjust your buttocks into a more comfortable postition and accidentally letting one out anyway. Hopefully silently.

'Amrit Vela' - a dynamic opportunity to meet other members of your clan in early morning silence and see them au natural, with morning breath et al, and then thinking constantly about those that are still sleeping. And wishing you had the courage to sleep through as well. Otherwise called 'Judgement Hour'.

'Traffic Control' - a spiritual 3 minute break when eating gassy, fatty foods that allows your body to rest in-between mouthfuls and think about what you'll have to eat at your next meal. Otherwise, an ideal opportunity to put down your shopping bags from the nearby village and unobtrusively try to remove the cow-dung from your new sandals.

'Gyan' a deeply knowledgeable spiritual person who's learnt to keep their head down and avoid conflict with their tribe members. They usually present as shy and quiet in nature but on the inside could be raging hormonal tigers with sharp claws.

how about:

"Banish negative sanskars" - Supress all those niggling gut-instincts/intuitions which are warning you not to ignore your common sense or powers of reason/discrimination

"Not Royal" ... closely related to "Avyakt" (angelic). An excuse not to do something or used to describe some activity that a BK does not want to do and does not approve of, e.g. working hard or manual labor is "not royal" or "not Avyakt". Also used as a subtle put down of others. "His behavior was not royal" ... "laughing is not royal".

Many BKs believe they are going to become Golden Age royalty in their next life surrounded by servants and so they like to practise "being royal", acting like kings and queens, now in this life.
