    Is the knowledge of Brahma Kumaris the “truth”? 

    Probably many BK followers looking at this website may not resist in reading this article. The title is very eye catching.
    Followers want to make sure if what they are into is the “truth.” Nothing else matters.
    Followers want to make sure and jump in the bandwagon of “truth.”

    Avyakt7 believed through his experience and his understanding a few years ago, that what Brahma Kumaris teaches is the “truth.”
    While at that stage of consciousness, everything made sense and what didn’t make sense could be rationalized into something that did make sense. That was perfect! Having the “truth” is an ego booster and a source of tranquility knowing that “I am safe” in the afterlife.

    Now, Avyakt7- NG ( Ahnanda) has a different view.
    Ahnanda is not interested in “truth” for he understands that what we see, perceive and comprehend is part of the “role” thus “REALITY” depends on what we are “equipped with” for perception.

    “The body is perishable whereas the soul is imperishable. A total part is recorded in this tiny soul. It is such a wonder! Even scientists do not understand this. An immortal, imperishable part is recorded in this tiny soul. The soul is imperishable and his part is also imperishable.” SM 5/22/17

    For instance, now I can see that the body is NOT perishable although it perishes. Doesn’t make sense? That is because the cycle of time is not understood. The soul is imperishable, its part is imperishable and therefore, the body is imperishable for it is part of the role.

    I just corrected a Murli point. Look at that! Everything that exists is imperishable.

    Observe that our level of perception and understanding is different. Who is right? Who is wrong? Who has the “truth”?
    None of that is important. “Having the truth” is not important at all in Life.

    The “truth” may be important as some theory that needs to be validated by followers living in the mind, to make sense of an ever-changing world, but that is artificial.

    BEING does not change through understanding of some dogma labeled as “truth.”
    What truly matters is the AWARENESS of how everything is perishable: Ideas, truths, beliefs, perceptions… there is nothing that could last…

    Wait a minute! You just said that everything is imperishable and now you are saying that it is perishable! You are contradicting yourself!

    Yes. Do you see the “truth” in that? Does it matter?
    It is just a matter of perception. Do we see the “truth” in that?
    If the truth is a perception and perceptions change according to the location of our consciousness, then what is truly true?
    Food for thought.

    Brahma Kumaris knowledge is true for certain consciousness and false for others. Brahma kumaris knowledge is neither “true” or “false” for fewer consciousness… and that could be closer to the “truth,” although if only few can understand the above, then the “truth” could be far away… for most but not few.

    But…if “Few” can understand and “Most” cannot, it is obvious that “the truth” will be something that “Most” can understand… Even though the “truth” is in the “Few.”

    That is why a “best seller” or a “spiritual book” or “scripture” given for the understanding of “Most” is far away from the “truth” …  😉
    Food for thought.

    For the common good.

      Hi Ahnanda, reading and understanding your articles is always interesting but requires some time to grasp. 🙂
      I was an “Adhar Kumar” with BKs for 6 years, and I too had this kind of question that whether what I am following and practising is the ULTIMATE truth or may be there is something beyond this too. And that was mainly because of the reason that most of the practices seemed to me as if I am creating all that inside my mind, the talk with Shiva Baba, trying to focus on Shiv Baba for longer and all that.

      I find your articles quite paradoxical sometimes and yet quite closer to truth, I am simply trying to share what I feel about Ahnanda’s writing. At the same time, your articles have also helped me to come to a conclusion that yes there are many other things beyond BK system as well. Thanks for writing this Bro… 🙂 Om shanti 🙂

    The painful repetition of the cycle 

    In my time as a “teacher” in Brahma Kumaris, I remember that at one time I was explaining the “eternally repeating cycle of time” to a “student.” She started sobbing and crying… I used my “knowledge” of “being detached” from the situation and did not say a thing. The girl then said while crying: “ I was molested by my father, I don’t want that to repeat again.”

    I didn’t know what to say other than: “There are good thing that will happen again as well… “
    When I commented about that incident  to other BKs, I was given the advice to “take the pulse” of the other “soul,” before explaining the cycle of time.

    For some time, I thought that the “cycle of time” was some sort of “acid test” for potential followers or some “ weapon” to be extra careful with. In fact, the “student” response baffled me. She was “right.” That “bad” thing was going to repeat again and again eternally.
    Was the Drama some sort of masochist device to inflict the same pain over and over? How could “I” improve or become “better” in Life, if “I” was going to “DO” the same things and receive the same consequences over and over for eternity? 🙂

    Ask any “pukka” BK the above question and he may come up with something such as : “Baba has said that the Drama is 75% happiness and 25% unhappiness. I can live with that.”
    Yeah! I am “gaining” something in this game and only losing 25%…. what a deal!

    As Avyakt7 –NG, I can recognize now the conditioning that traps. Brahma Kumaris knowledge teaches that there are “good” things and “bad” things. Some “right” things and “wrong” things. that could happen to “I.” Those concepts trap our comprehension.

    In LIFE, in the DRAMA, there are no such words as “good or bad, right or wrong.”
     Life offers EXPERIENCES and we get attached to those by labeling them “good” or reject them and make a trauma of them, by labeling those as “bad.”

    When we see Life from an “unlimited” perspective, we could see “cause and effect,” and we could see that everything that IS, will not BE. My perception of some experience as “bad” is only limited, for through that experience there will be further change and eventually growth. Not only that, but Life will give us experiences custom fitted for us. Experiences in Life have the full range: If we get praise, then defamation will be waiting for us, both ends through the same extent and intensity. This is known as polarity.

    That “student” is out of that experience now (molestation,) but yet she is crying for the anticipation that it will happen again. She is not living the now. Her mind is giving her a belief to worry about in the future (her past.) That “student” is unable to perceive the threads of experiences (karma) and how they are meshed together. She can only isolate them and see in a limited way what is going on.

    Nevertheless, that “student” was upset and she did not follow the BK system due to that “crazy belief.”

    The “student” missed the opportunity to liberate herself from that trauma of  molestation. If she had awareness, she could have observed that this trauma appeared through the trigger of a belief. 

    Life did not offer her the opportunity to join the BK religion ( As religious followers may believe.) Life offered her the opportunity to be AWARE of her trauma and take care of it, to live a happier life.

    The student perceived  a painful belief. The religion/teacher perceived a person who is not ready to accept the “truth”  to join them, but in Life all of those incidents are only agents for causality, that is how the “Drama”/Life moves.

    For the common good.

        Hi Ahnanda, when I get some free time, I read some random articles here which I didn’t read or didn’t read with attention and some reflection on it. Well, I could understand from this article and from my own experience that “Everything that I studied or practiced at BKs” was merely a belief. I have not experienced even a single thing out of 1001 things that I explored with BKs.
        Another thing about this student which I could understand was that she was more AWARE about her trauma and did not accept the belief given. But now what I wanted to ask here is, there is no way to stop coming into cycle of time?

        I had shared some reasons here on blog for leaving the BK system, one of the primary reason was that “I don’t want to be in the Cycle”. And you had adviced me to join them back!!
        Also, my thinking was that I somehow want to avoid the bad later half, i.e. the copper and iron ages, and if I reflect on your point about “POLARITY”, then my thinking was actually a “WRONG” thing that “There is bad part in the drama”, I don’t know but, no part seems good or bad thing now. The drama is a one thing, so even if I end up becoming Cremator (Person burning dead bodies), or a prince with Brahma Baba’s soul, all roles are equaly important. Drama woudn’t be complete without missing even this smaller roles too. (Considered smaller). Well, I have heard about a lot of beliefs about escaping this cycle and there is a way out, but nothing of those things is my experience 😦

    The entertainment of Sukshma Vatan 

    “Sukshma vatan consists of 3 main puris. Brahma Puri, Vishnu puri & Shankar Puri. If we consider Baba’s Murlis He says that I create Sukshma Vatan when I come down in the Sangam Yug. If we also take in to consideration Vishnu so Brahma & Brahma so Vishnu we can correlate the two aspects i.e. Vishnu Puri & Shankar Puri always exist. When Shiv Baba comes down he creates sukshma vatan i.e. Brahma Puri. The Vishnu in Vishnu Puri becomes the Brahma of Brahma Puri not Prajapita Brahma. Thus from the Brahma Puri Shiv Baba carries out his work through Brahma & other farishtas or Angels. Shiv Baba says like Brahma Baba we all have our complete [ Sampoorna ] light body in sukshma vatan and just as Prajapita Brahma became Avyakt Brahma when he reached his Sampoorna stage similarly when we reach our Sampoorna stage we will also become Farishtas of Brahma Puri. Then once Satyug starts, Brahma Puri will vanish and Avyakt Brahma will become Vishnu of Vishnu Puri and we all will become the devtas of Vishnu Puri. Farishta so Devta. One thing which should be very clear is that the Devtas of Satyug are human beings with divine virtues. Shiv Baba has many times very clearly said that we are actors and human beings with devi qualities in Satyug and the same soul become human beings with Asuri virtues in Kalyug.
    Vishnu Puri & Shankar Puri are the subtle worlds where lot of action takes place. But at present we have become full of vices and body consciousness that Shiv Baba does not give us any information of these worlds leave aside having a glimpse of these worlds. I also will not like to go in further details as it may hurt the Egos of those souls who think that they are going to be the real devtas and there are no other Devtas in the subtle world. Only once we BKs destroy this Ego within us we will get a partial knowledge of these Subtle worlds.
    We will have to become Sampoorna Pavitra then only we will be able to experience the beauty of the Angel World which at present some souls are.”

    The above is a recent comment (today) I received in the blog “Exploring the Depth of Living” by a BK brother in reference to this article.

    This is a compelling reason for not allowing comments in that blog, as this is not for the “common good” but is specific to the BK world. However, this comment is valid here, as this is about the Brahma Kumaris, that is why I am reproducing it.

    Observe the answer. Most will get into the logic of it, the “reasonable” explanation based on the belief that “Baba said” and therefore, it is “true.”
    What is in the Sakar Murlis could change or be “reviewed.” That is general knowledge.
    What “Baba said” is not most BKs experiences. It is a personal experience taken as the “absolute truth.”

    When a person is living in the mind, the above is meaningful as “knowledge”.
    However, the above is completely, utterly useless when it comes to self-realization. The above information is built upon a set of beliefs with little value other than “entertainment”. Yes, it is entertainment for the mind.

    To become “Sampoorna Pavitra” is meaningless. Those words mean nothing. To become that is just an ideal. To say that when “I become” a “Sampoorna Pavitra” I will have the experience of the angel world is another belief.

    Once the ego-mind is recognized in ourselves, (awareness) change happens by itself. There is nothing to DO to achieve or become. Useless nice words to “achieve” bring nothing to the table but an ideal. That ideal is not what “is” but just an ideal.

    I need to add that the BK brother who posted the above is going through his own process, so the above is “good for him,” now. Later on, it will not be. It will be an obstacle.

    That is the nature of duality. Rejection inside us, has no place; but if we reject something, we will embrace it…. sooner or later.  🙂

    For the common good.

    Questions on Satyuga and the eternal cycle 

    Om shanti.. brother..
    When does this world will transform into satyuga…what your perspective over this..how many years remaining…??

    Thank you for your question.
    If I’d say “tomorrow,” would you believe me? Probably not. How about next month?
    Maybe, maybe not. How about next year? Do you believe me?
    Just to make sure that you will believe me, let me add 10 years to my answer.
    No doubt in 11 years.
    Now what? Are you going to “make effort”? Knowing that transformation will happen in 11 years should give you motivation, right?

    Oh! So you don’t believe me that satyuga will happen in 11 years… so when do you believe? You may need to ask a senior to confirm your belief with their belief and then tell me that my belief was “wrong” for their belief should be “right.”

    We could go on… what is the point? That is what I mean by living in the mind. It is about just beliefs which we make “real.”

    Best to you.

    Since the drama is cyclic in nature, you cannot escape from it, there is no way, if I would request Baba that I don’t want to come in iron age and copper age, I only want to come in golden and silver age, he will say “Law does not hold that dude”. Because right now you are in the drama and to play your part you have to come again so no chance to obtain moksha, liberation from cycle of birth and death (My one reason of leaving BKs was this, I would like to take this topic as well with you Ahnanda in future). If we want to escape, we will have to make the drama as linear may be which happens only once. But that’s just my view, you have said in few of your articles that time is cyclic in nature.

    Thank you for your question.
    From my experience, there is no doubt that there is a cycle of time.
    If you didn’t know this, it wouldn’t matter. You will not remember it “now.”
    If you know this, it can only make you think about all the “bad” stuff that has happened to “you”; without realizing that the “good” stuff has happened as well because of the “bad.” This is called duality, and both sides come together.

    The “I” wants to escape. The “I” wants “moksha.”
    WHO ARE YOU?
    You are not your body. You are not your mind. Where are you?
    If you say “soul” or “spirit,” then why are you so concerned about suffering things that happened in this physical plane? Those things shouldn’t touch you.
    SO, here we find a dishonesty. Those who believe to be an eternal soul but yet are worried about “destruction.”

    The issue is the “I.” Otherwise, there is just a movie. Watch it. That is a “detached observer.” You are eternal. You will come back again as you are one more time… Dinesh. (Label identifying the manifestation of a role.)
    The “I” will feel sad, desperate, hopeless by knowing this… just because the movie is not going according to his wishes, desires, wants… but yet the “I” does not exist.
    That is the wonder. Maya.

    If you left the BK movement because of this belief in the Drama, you may want to consider to go back; for as far as I am concerned; that is true…. Time is cyclical, although it appears linear. Repetitive, although it appears new all the time; paradoxical, although it appears logical.
    Even though there is death, there is none for you will come back exactly as you are now.
    Even though there is suffering; there is pleasure with the same intensity. How do you know suffering, if you don’t experience pleasure? Both come together, although they appear separate.
    There is no “I,” although it appears that there is.
    That is a “reason” why “I” am not a BK now.

    For the common good.

      Oh Ahnanda, you always write really well dude… 🙂

      I had many reasons to leave that organisation, one can’t escape from cycle is just one of them, please follow few more reasons now:

      First reason: Although everything seems so good and clean and fresh for BKs, but they are people with a lot of bias and prejudice. After following them for almost three years, I told the most senior sister there that I want to completely surrender myself now, I was quite dedicated, the answer she gave me was “ I haven’t done the seva (service) like other brothers, just because those other brothers donate a lot of money, and dedicate more time than me, does that mean I am not as truthful as they are towards Baba. But I still continued for more three years, because ultimately in gyan we have to consider drama as well.

      Second reason: I went for doing seva one day with a sister in a nearby garden, she is very elder sister and surrendered at the center, in the middle all of a sudden, a small beggar child, so innocent, he was hardly 7 to 8 years old, touched her and asked for money, as beggars do, she got angry on that beggar, I can’t consider this as drama now, come on.

      Third reason: Again the same, BK sisters do get angry but in utterly sweet way, one can easily make out that. One day a stranger entered inside center for using washroom, and the elder sister found, she got angry on Jr sister. I will include my another reason here only, they threw one sister out of center (Yes, it will be called throwing, because she was surrendered for many years at center) saying that she was not able to follow shreemat properly, but when I dug into the matter, I found that she fell for a guy at center, and they caught her. (I am not trying to disrespect them, but just stating my experience).

      Fourth reason: They are not truthful people, they force and encourage their followers for divorce from their spouse. Apart from this, Baba’s gyan won’t help me to understand my sexuality, I am a homosexual.
      There are many… but please note this again that I didn’t leave them because I found Osho or Ahnanda, I simply wanted to be on my personal journey.

      Fifth reason: The gyan is quite self-contradictory, become “icha matram avdya” means reach to a state of desirelessness, but there are many desires on this path, desire to churn knowledge, desire to increase the experience of yoga with Baba, desire to inculcate every dharna with you, desire to do a lot seva, whatever, one may say these are good desires, making you head towards something good, but a Desire is Desire, you can’t reach “icha matram avdya” with these four subjects.

      And regarding “I” does not exist is the teachings of Gautham Buddha, explained 2500 years ago, it’s called reality of “anatta”, atta means soul and anatta means no soul at all.

    Tags: 108, , , BK cycle, Brahma Kumaris gyan, , , , lakshmi and narayan,   

    The core of Brahma Kumaris gyan. 

    Looking back from my actual perspective of Life, the piece of Knowledge which has had significance in my Life, is the cycle of time.

    As a matter of fact, from my view it is the only “knowledge” with significance.
    The cycle of time is not a Brahma Kumaris discovery. It has existed in Hinduism, although with a different take, duration, stories, etc.

    A deeper understanding of it, will take someone into what Zen, Taoism and even Tantra are explaining in their own ways.
    The “unlimited” movie is all that exists, and it already has a reel of scenes which have been already shot in “advance,” which are always running.  We could perceive things as the “I” separated from the movie as many religions including Brahma Kumaris perceive, AND/OR we can see that the “I” as separation is an illusion.  Have you heard this terminology? To BE nothing, to DO nothing, to witness, to BE everything there is…. The Drama. 

    Who am I? That question when answered honestly does not have an answer. Yes, it is the soul, right? No. That is a BELIEF. For most is only about replacing the word “I” with the word “soul.” To say “I am a soul” does not mean that I have honestly felt, that I know out of my own experience.  If you knew, you wouldn’t be a BK follower, because the “goal” would have been “achieved”. Soul conscious.   The belief is that by DOING or not DOING things, soul consciousness will arrive to you.

    Because the movie is a “game,” to enjoy that experience is the natural outcome of “understanding” deep gyan, which is the core of Tantra.

    The importance and emphasis of the “I” in Brahma Kumaris knowledge, may be a source of distortion.
    It is “Baba and I,” “Mera Baba,” the “I” is always there, even in Heaven; thus; the need of that “I” to DO things to make things happen and fight with all forces of evil or Maya or anything which comes in front, to obtain the goal, the golden carrot; which is obtained with much denial of what our current Life offers to the “I,” for those things are “impure,” and “I” am becoming “pure.”
    Without a doubt that is a great setup to observe the ego in action. Unfortunately it is not like that for in that state of consciousness, awareness is not developed yet.

    Baba needs to tell me what to DO, how to DO it and WHEN to DO it.
    “I” am totally dependent on his instructions. “I” am afraid of making “mistakes,” for “I” want to be “right.”

    If that “I” is not seen for what it is, I am afraid the BK experience will only serve as a way to further enhance the ego. Either way, it is good.

    Many Brahma Kumaris followers are beginning their “spiritual careers” by understanding the mind.
    I recall that avyakt7 was a great “churner” of “knowledge.”
    To figure out the whereabouts of Lakshmi and Narayan, the Advanced party and all the secrets behind the 108 and the first day of the Golden age, and then to go into the dinosaurs alley and their existence in the “Copper age” or lack of it, all of that has no value for me at this time.
    Zero, Nada, Zilch.

    However, I can understand why many Brahma Kumaris brothers and sister are still using their minds to figure those things out. I was there.
    You may get the reputation of “best churner,” and be compared with Jagdish Bhai nevertheless; all of that is pointless in self-realization, but yet another good source of ego.

    To go into the significance of the cycle of time and its repetition, is to discover that the separation of the “I” from the unlimited movie, is a mirage, a “big maya.” Everything is together. Everything is the movie, including “you,” the “I.”

    In order to dilute the ego, it needs to be enhanced first; and Brahma Kumaris does a pretty good job in that.

    For the common good.

      Hmm, well portrayed Ahnanda… The knowledge of drama is wonderful. But two things that make and made me feel strange and do something like “eeyyyooo (A feeling of great dislike)” after the lesson of drama are:

      All that bad stuff and immense suffering I went through since iron age and especially in this particular birth is going to happen with me again and again in every kalpa, every cycle, because my suffering in this particular birth was immense…:(
      Since the drama is cyclic in nature, you cannot escape from it, there is no way, if I would request Baba that I don’t want to come in iron age and copper age, I only want to come in golden and silver age, he will say “Law does not hold that dude”. Because right now you are in the drama and to play your part you have to come again so no chance to obtain moksha, libration from cycle of birth and death (My one reason of leaving BKs was this, I would like to take this topic as well with you Ahnanda in future). If we want to escape, we will have to make the drama as linear may be which happens only once. But that’s just my view, you have said in few of your articles that time is cyclic in nature.
      Apart from this Osho explains in one of his lecture that, do you really think that a world so called heaven where everything is considered as perfect, it will be enjoyable to live there. How boring that would be to live there without any problem, like you don’t have anything to do there, no job for survival, no business, although BKs do claim that there will be barter system there, but barter system brings a lot of problems, inequality, storage of material, and so on, so how can a world where there exist a barter system be free from emotional suffering, people won’t feel jealous or low or high when they exchange stuff in barter system!!
      He claims that hell in fact would be a more colorful place, with so many variety of people existing at same time, so many varieties of dances, will there be any dance in heaven, if yes, how many varieties? he goes on and on explain that people have been running behind heaven but you can be in heaven even if you are living in a hell world of today.

        There are still some tribal societies who have no contact with modern society. They use barter system for getting their daily necessities. They enjoy their life with pristine nature. The drama has place for something at a right time.

          That is right, Anil. The Drama has place for something at the right time. It cannot be any other way as we are all part of this marvelous movie.
          Dinesh: The article today goes into your question. I would be glad to go further into it in another article if you have further questions.

          One important thing to remember is that in the Golden age BEING is complete, full. Naturally those BEINGS are “good.” Therefore, whatever they DO is good as well. There is no greed. On the other hand, at this time for most; BEING is incomplete. This is not “bad” but just an experience of the range of experiences which always move from one extreme to the other, from completeness to incompleteness.
          There is nothing to fix, as this is the natural law; only be aware, acknowledge of who we ARE, that brings automatic change.

          Spiritually nowadays, is busy covering our BEING with DOING. Our actions look “good” in the surface but are driven by greed, whether that is to make more money or to get Paradise in the afterlife, it is the same thing.

          Bartering is not a problem. It is not “impure.” Just like sex. The issue is BEING, the type of consciousness behind the action.

            Hey, this may seem a little argumentative, “There is no greed in Golden age”. Now suppose ABC BEING is a deity in golden age, sitting and eating the perfect food, as in golden age the food is going to be the Great, “they call it 56 bojan”.

            Now the ABC deity likes one food item and he wants more food item, to get more experience of those 56 bojan, my point is “subtle wanting more” is going to be there, I am sorry to disagree with Ahnanda for the first time, but after all “GREED IS GREED”.

            There is GREED in golden age as well.

              Dinesh: You are assuming that deity ABC will act as “normal” people here. Greed is defined as:”intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food.” THE KEYWORD IS “SELFISH.”
              If I want more food because I am legitimately hungry, that is not greed, it is hunger. If I want more food because is the last portion or someone else may take it, that is not hunger but greed.
              Greed is greed, but hunger is not greed. 🙂

          Daily necessities, enjoyment with pristine nature and a place in drama is not going to free them from all sorts of sufferings forever.

          I am sorry, I have been quite argumentative in both the comments, but one can’t deny these facts. Can you Anil?

          Now may be you have a question why to get rid of all sorts of suffering for ever? Let’s see whether I am able to find that in my personal journey… 🙂
