The BKs admit Adi Dev is not a true account of the BKWSU history but ... no doubt a new fake history to follow which will survive another 20 years or so until all the old timers are dead and reality is forgetting. BK academic Tamasin Ramsay said to be taking over the project.
Who wants to place a bet Virendra Dev Dixit will be missed out of the new version too?

As you would already know, a Yagya History research project is currently underway to record our early history and will eventually culminate in a book. Some of you would have also attended our beloved Wendy's presentation over a year ago on her historical research to-date, which is now being continued by Tamasin.
The recent research has uncovered interesting and amazing new facts and some long-held BK facts, especially about timelines, are now being questioned e.g. when the Yagya began and how old Brahma Baba was when the Yagya started. This topic (Yagya History) is a ongoing topic being discussed in the Global Integrated Media group (GIM).
So we feel that until we get further clarity on these facts, the Adi Dev book should not be positioned as the official record of our Yagya's history but rather that it is the authors' own interpretation of stories gathered from those that were at the time, or from stories passed on to them from others.
As such we suggest the "Adi Dev" book is not displayed as part of your literature stand, nor actively promoted either in your Centre's library or with students during the Foundation Course, etc.
Soon we will have new material to give out to students on our unique history.
