HAPPY RESOLUTION OF CONTROVERSIES? MOVING ALONG..??.

Charlie Hogg,left, vice president Brahma Kumaris Australia, and friends.. with ant hill at aravali meditation sanctuary...

        As readers of this site will know, we have had concerns for many years about the apparent lack of accuracy in the tale of how Brahma Kumaris came to embrace their primary philosophy expressed as:

The One True God of All Religions has descended, and is setting about His task of World Transformation: through the agency of Brahma Kumaris.. 

We also have ongoing concerns about censorship of the Godly teachings: known as sakar murlis (1964-69), and certain avyakt murlis (1969-77). Our many requests to management to discuss and resolve these anomalies for the benefit of the people of the world have not born fruit.

With this in mind we recently invited the leadership of Brahma Kumaris Australia, incorporated in Australia, to meet with us, each with our solicitors. Although the nature of the discussions will not be for publication here, our concerns have been these:

 Australian Consumer Law contains broad provisions prohibiting conduct by a corporation that is considered to be misleading or deceptive or would be likely to mislead or deceive.

 In that context we note that there appear to be fundamental discrepancies between the Brahma Kumaris story, as currently endorsed by Brahma Kumaris Australia, through both active denial and passive neglect, and the BK story as authenticated by original documents in the British Library, the New York Public Library and the public library in Karachi. BKA is funded almost exclusively by members of the public, and we believe that the public has a right to full and complete knowledge about the organisation they are contributing to. Because of management censorship and lack of disclosure regarding the story, we feel that currently they do not. 

 Brahma Kumaris Australia has secure assets in excess of    $20,000,000, and an annual cash income donated by members of the public of some $1,000,000, as well as further millions  contributed to its tax deductible  building account.* ( BKA has tax deductible status as a 'school', though it teaches in a rather colonial style, reminiscent of British India). 

 We believe that BKA has a clear responsibility to be open and transparent about its history and teachings to all past, present and future donors, and all Australian tax payers, and hope pathways to bring this about can be agreed to between the parties.CoolCoolCoolBig GrinBig GrinSmileCoolSmileSmile

They write "what may appear ... war may be unavoidable" so it looks like even they are starting to hedge their bets. Destruction was a good money making scam.

Given the He said / She said destruction controversy, it may be prudent to rename the BK circular, Purity* ...... * conditions apply.

Shivani must form a breakaway sect of true believers! The decrepit seniors gave 3 failed world's end predictions. They must be retired, in a kind but firm way.
