At the heart of the Brahma Kumaris teachings is The Foundation Course and Intermediate Courses in Brahma Kumaris Raja Yoga Meditation.This course provides a logical and practical understanding of the relationship between spirit and matter and the interplay between souls, God and the material world. The series of classes in this course facilitate the students’ inward journey based on their own personal insights and understanding.
We are individuals of all ages and backgrounds who regularly attend classes at more than 9,000 centres of the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University located in 110 countries. We study spiritual knowledge that nurtures respect for all faith traditions, coherently explains the nature of soul, God, time, and karma, and delineates an enlightened lifestyle.
We practise and teach a form of meditation that relaxes the mind and nurtures a healthy balance between our inner and outer worlds. Through numerous social service activities and partnerships, we promote spiritual understanding, leadership with integrity and elevated actions towards a better world.
The Brahma Kumaris seeks to help individuals re-discover and strengthen their inherent worth by encouraging and facilitating a process of spiritual awakening. This leads to an awareness of the importance of thoughts and feelings as the seeds of actions. The development of virtues and values-based attitudes creates a practical spirituality which enhances personal effectiveness in the workplace and in family life.
An understanding of the spiritual context of human existence is offered, helping to make sense of contemporary issues. Based on the principle that the roots of change lie within, the university encourages individuals to live by their highest values, vision and purpose. It holds that this commitment to self-transformation will create peace and a better world for all.
