BRAHMA KUMARIS AUSTRALIA: THE NEW WEBSITE.
Brahma Kumaris Australia, has a new website. Colourful and skilfully presented,
the site promotes a refocussed 'New Age Makeover' for the high demand religion of Brahma Kumaris : a look best described as BK LITE: LITE on the controversial philosophy...LITE on the true backstory....and
no mention that BKA is big business, Australian Public Company ACN 132 195 883, with a $1,000,000 plus annual income (ref ASIC), and generous tax concessions for the company schools.++BKA FINANCIAL 2016
But somewhat disrespectfully we feel, the website does not reference the crucial role of founder Lekraj Kripalani ( Brahma Baba), nor does it touch
on the BK core message to humanity, that God has arrived and is even now speaking directly to the world from the BKWSU ashram in India!
The website makes a particular visual appeal to young people: BKA stakeholders are rapidly aging, and BKA retreat centres are more like retirement homes for the elderly BK students: most residents are over 60, some
in their 80's: though the centres certainly provide pleasant places to enjoy a busy semi retirement, and the public are warmly welcomed to the frequent BK service programs.
It can be argued that
by continuing to deny crucial foundational aspects of their history, and redacting the teachings, Brahma Kumaris is continuing, as the new website makes apparent, to attract followers by stealth.
