In 2014 an internal survey was undertaken by BKA. We were not told how it was done or its terms of reference, but it is helpful in looking at some potholes to avoid along The One True Path, as confirmed by The One True God of All Religions as the one and only path to Enlightenment.


                   At a meeting in Melbourne on April 30 2017, Mr Charles Hogg, Director, Brahma Kumaris Australia, presented a new multi layered BKA operations manual working toward structural refunctioning. For BKA management it has been a 3 year exercise and SEVEN NEW DEPARTMENTS have been created with numerous sub departments, including state service units, local service units, special interest group sub-units, and last but not least, the National Service Team itself has its own 'VIP sub-unit'who's task it is to attract the more famous and influential members of our community... 

I recently wrote to the Head of Department of one of the seven new  departments:The People Matters Department. This Department also has its own Units : Welfare Unit, Training and Development Unit, and Staffing Unit. The new departments  have their own slogan too: A SNAPSHOT OF OUR GLORIOUS FUTURE,  a phrase Chairman Mao might have been proud of.But we haven't heard that 'our glorious future'  in the promised Golden Age will have such a monster bureaucracy...quite the reverse  in fact🙂

So... I put forward a proposal to The Head of The People Matters Department suggesting ( again) that BK culture might begin to move to a vegan (so cruelty free), diet and lifestyle. I had a pleasantly swift reply from the Head of Department, but...with the suggestion that the matter should  be referenced to the The Centres Network Department, which also has its own Units : BK Family Sustenance and Lifestyle Unit, Sustaining Contacts Unit, Spiritual Teaching and Learning Unit (and sub-unit) .

So anyway... my suggestion was apparently passed on from The People Matters Department to The Centres Network Department a  month ago, and somewhere in the new look BK structures and functions and units and sub-units...it seems to have got lost, in spite of the manual insisting  that: "Each department will be properly resourced in terms of people, money, technology so they can do their work effectively and efficiently".🙃

Seriously though, as we mentioned at the meeting, this clunky  bureaucracy just entrenches the same old BK culture as identified above, and does little to address the central POINT 9 of the  survey :

'The prevailing BK culture is inhibiting change and disempowering structures/individuals'.😥😥


As always, however,we live in hope.🙂🙂🙂

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.

Time for s new survey I think. That one's outdated but you'll probably find the same result. This org is seriously restricted by cultural limitations.

This is what happens when you have Silver Age souls running Confluence Age restructuring.

Will there be a regular BK Bristow cartoon to accompany such absurd bureacracy-speak? https://kayehargreaves1.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/akj-bristow.jpg?w=900

Changing a culture is like gettting a cruise liner to do a 180 degree turn. It can be done but will take lots of patience and time compared a smaller boat.
