BIG CASH AT BANK, BIG NEW VALUES TO BKA PROPERTIES.

Brahma Kumaris Australia, is, as far as we know, the only BK company that advertises for funds so directly, some might say brazenly, on their website.But it certainly seems to reap dividends for BKA.

BKA: SOME $2,000,000 CASH AT THE BANK AND $27,000,000 WORTH OF PROPERTIES.

      Hello dear friends,

     In line with our policy of clarity and openness, and because we believe BKA stakeholders should be aware of the general financial position of the corporate identity they  support, as should Australian taxpayers who also support the religion, we publish annually,in brief, the latest financials from the BKA corporate world thanks to the Australian Charities and Not-for- profit Commission. 

BKA is listed as a Large Charity by the ACNC, meaning the charity has an annual income in excess of $1,000,000.00

Brahma Kumaris Centres for Spiritual Learning ( Brahma Kumaris Australia) ACN 132 195 683. 

Freehold land and buildings:$26,585,000*

*Note: BKA property assets were revalued upwards in 2016 from $21,720,00 to $26,585,000: up nearly $5,000,000.

 Cash at Bank: $1,972,696

 Unsecured loan: $1,825,265*

*Note: 'Unsecured loans are interest free loans with no repayment period'. These are not donations as such, but the loan makers, for whatever reason, perhaps tax advantage, prefer to make their financial assistance to BKA by perhaps 'parking' funds in this way. Unsecured loans in previous years have been - 2013: $791,296, 2014:$639,296, 2015:$2,528,000.

      BKA have repaid $300,000 of their $515,492 ANZ bank loan, allied to BKA Fivedock premeses. This loan was made for a 5 year period, posssibly to gain some borrowing credibility. We note that BKA and its allied Gift Fund hold tax exempt status.

Net profit of $109,000 is down from previous years as a percentage of overall income.

       Although this year the item below appears to have been judiciously deleted from its report, we understand that, as in previous years, on the basis that money given to God should not contribute towards the karma of His children...

Donations made to other charities or for public welfare :$0.00.

          However, we understand that 'good vibrations' are definitely donated from time to time to the less fortunate and less enlightened in Australia and around the world through World Meditation Hour.

           We note that in June 2016 the redoubtable Ms Amanda Quinn resigned from the BKA board. In December 2016, Ms Maureen Chen joined Dr Nirmala Kajaria, Mr Charlie Hogg, Ms Silvana Dimech-Conti, Mr Rajahram Padmanabhan, Mr Chakrapani Ogoti and Ms Sally Segal on the BKA board.We congratulate the BKA Board on managing BKA financial matters, though are concerned about some BKA ethical matters, as noted on this site.The BKA board also constitutes almost the entire membership of BKA. Every other BK stakeholder is simply a 'member of the public'.This makes it difficult, if not impossible, for BKA stakeholders to contribute meaningfully to policy, or to have management appreciate stakeholder concerns. However,if you do have any queries about BKA matters, they should be addressed to board.secretariat@au.brahmakumaris.org

Brahma Kumaris Australia have recently added a whole new level of admin, with a whole bunch of new departments, to help resolution of concerns  and take some of the weight off the board. We wrote about a concern to a new department head a month ago: no response yet as per custom...

           We would also  encourage the board to be less 'poverty conscious' in its appeals to the faithful, and to ensure that BK stakeholders do not put themselves and their families at financial risk by donating over generously. A concept promoted by Brahma Kumaris  is that giving generously now, will  assure the donor of many births of heavenly wealth in the soon to be arriving Golden Age, but this belief needs to be carefully weighed against present realities.We note that after we posted this message last year, Dr Nirmala Kajaria has endorsed our position, though still appealing to BKs to  'surrender everything'' their  'body, mind and wealth' (see below)++

           Brahma Kumaris core teachings advise: "It is better to die than to ask for money", so there is evidently a spiritual subtlety at work here.Sad

Friends, we do suggest you download the full 2016 Financial Report of 'Brahma Kumaris Centres for Spiritual Learning' (Brahma Kumaris Australia)  free at the ACNC website :www.acnc.gov.au.

In conclusion, we understand that discussions are continuing between local council and BKA regarding occupancy of the BKA Fivedock premeses.++FIVEDOCK SURPRISE!

 

++Dear BKS in Australia and Centres in Asia,

 My feeling now is that time is short and I would suggest to everyone to be ever-ready and make efforts to increase your spiritual treasures of thoughts, time, words, breath, karma, happiness and giving and receiving blessings.

 Have attention that your sanskaras are Bap Saman; such as being loving, detached, economical, generous, in an angelic stage all the time, being a karma yogi, being tireless and having lots of zeal and enthusiasm.

 In order to do service, renounce ‘I and Mine’ and surrender everything of yours to BapDada - body, mind and wealth - so that it is used in a worthwhile way to create your fortune in this valuable life.
 
Dadi(Janki) as general guidance, has suggested in the past that whenever someone sells a house or receives an inheritance, to give one third to Madhuban, one third to national service and keep one third for themselves. Within this you need to take into account your personal finances, circumstances and responsibilities and take advice from the relevant qualified, experienced, competent professionals before implementing Dadi’s guidance.

It is also advisable for everyone to make a proper Will by seeking professional advice as soon as practicable.

In Baba's yaad

BK Nirmala

Sindhi sharks, greedy Gujaratis. They can’t help themselves, the pattern of gathering ”support”from others begun when Lekhraj ran out of money. Cultural.

A request on Pure BK Veganism should directly go to Madhuban. Directly to Dadi Janki or specifically appointed to BaapDada at His next meeting in November.
