Today Brahma Kumaris make great show of celebrating Mothers Day at all their centres : special lunches will be served with cruelty based 'Brahma Bhojan' offered to God, and Mother Cow ice cream as a special treat: well these mothers have no kids to consume it do they? They have been stolen away and slaughtered. But there will be much talk of love, compassion and kindliness to all beings , of course.


Long time BK, and site moderator, Robin Ramsay speaks on Vegan lifestyle at a BK international conference in India


Hello dear friends. You will have noticed that we have quite a few postings about Brahma Kumaris and their dairy rich diet, considered central to the group's philosophy. BKA have recently responded to our suggestions for embracing a compassionate diet with a cynical dietary 'greenwash' ,which has very little to do with their talk of compassion for all living beings. (Neither do they buy 'naturally grown'  grains and vegetables, as these, we are told, are  too expensive...even for the wealthy BKs).

So do read on..and as you will see, THE YOGI DIET  on The Brahma Kumaris Australia website page, below, is clearly at odds with BK stated practise is it not?( slight edits for length)

 Brahma Kumaris Australia writes:


What does it mean to spiritualise our diet? It's more than just following an ancient or modern theory of what we should eat. When we plug into our life force and true self, we realise life is about relating. Whether we relate to a soul, to the body or to the natural world, the art of the yogi is to infuse all relationships with integrity, care and wisdom... the utmost care for the instrument of the body, the natural world and the delicate balance of all living beings. 

The yogi understands that pure and virtuous actions create freedom and peace within. Love is the highest intention behind any action. As we raise our vibration spiritually, our conscience won't allow us to harm any living thing on a subtle or gross level. We become mindful of where our food has come from and whether it was cultivated with care and respect.

A life of  non-violence sweetens the mind and calms the soul. It can be a challenging leap for those new to the spiritual path but one worth at least trying. Through experimentation, we can see for ourselves the calming effect a kind diet has on the mind.

 The deepest truths of life are often the simplest. As we return to our real nature, it makes sense to return to real food. The universe, the elements of nature and our bodies are infinitely intelligent. Fruits, vegetables, grains and nuts in their natural form align us with that intelligence and nourish us with its benefits.

  Knowing where our food comes from, connects us to the people who raise and grow it. And where there is connection, the chances for accountability, care and integrity increase. 

Each of us is unique, and the map to our highest destination of health, wealth and happiness lies within. As we deepen the power of stillness, our intuition raises its volume. With each meal, we can observe the effects of certain foods on our mood and energy. As we listen, we hear what the body truly needs. 

 Interestingly,Vegan restaurants are happening all over Australia, especially in Melbourne. We note that a Vegan pub 'Grey Cells Green' has just opened in Windsor, and  a historic pub in East Sydney is Vegan..people around the world, are becoming more aware  of the dreadful cruelty of industrial animal farming...and wish to 'spiritualise' their diet and lifestyle. When even pubs become come the 'spiritual' BKs are so far behind?😥

Hi Rosa Pls do note that this site has no issues with the challenges of the teachings, but does seek more openness honesty and compassion in BK management🌹

I love the Brahma Kumaris. The Raja Yoga teachings have uplifted the lives of so so many human beings. It is sad to see you feeling and talking this way.
