    Baba is Karankaravanhar 

    “Karankaravnahar” is a mouthful word meaning “The one who does through others.”

    In Brahma Kumaris it is believed that God “acts” through “instruments” that is typically a Brahma Kumaris adherent.
    In Brahma Kumaris, the way to show a humble demeanor is by saying: “I am an instrument. Baba is the one doing.”

    Nevertheless, in the Drama no one DOES. Actions manifest through human beings. This is an immediate consequence of believing in “predestination.” How are “you” going to DO things, if those things have been repeating through the eternal repetitive Drama?
    That is a point in depth. 

    That is how Brahma Kumaris came up with another concept: “it is YOUR fortune.”

    For most followers saying that God works through “you” or that your activities and consequences of them are “your” fortune; merely strengthens the idea of being separated from the Totality. That is how the “I” increases in size.

    “God is working through me.” “I am only an instrument.”
    Big size “I.”

    From another perspective, there is no need of God as a separate entity to DO anything through someone else. “God” is part of the eternal repetitive Drama, correct?
    Then, the Drama is behind everything. The Drama is the true “Karankaravanhar.”

    But something so “impersonal” and “omnipresent” as the Drama cannot be worshiped, loved or romantically attached as “God” could be.
    That is the point on choosing a “personal” God.

    For those who like deep things, here is another one:
    What is “Maya” then, if everything is predestined?

    Every “illusion” that a person could be going through, it is part of the experience that this person needs to go through. “Everything in the Drama is beneficial.” Do we remember that teaching? That includes “Maya” as well.
    The world of ideas and ideals will not take anyone to a change in consciousness. Neither to learn mouthful words or to add new concepts to a belief system.

    As that “I” dissolves into the beauty of Life (Drama,) we liberate ourselves from our mental bondages.
    How? Why?
    Because the “I” disappears… little by little, like a magic trick.
    For many that is a hard to grasp “concept.” However, it is not a “concept” once there is experience. It is only a state of consciousness.
    In the meantime, “I” learn the “concept,” “I” repeat it. “I” use it to sound “knowledge-full. That is the way to DO it!  … but not to live it.

    For the common good.

      According to my experience, BKs think of Baba as Karankarawanhar to be free from Ego, Baba made me do this, he used me for something good, I am just his instrument.

      Om shanti 🙂

    “Numberwise” is non-existent 

    Going deeper into Gyan is a matter of taking the conditioning of being a Brahma Kumaris actor, out of the “knowledge.”
    Why?
    Because that conditioning creates a bias. Sakar Murlis look at the Drama as if it was “made” for Brahma Kumaris followers.

    The idea of “status” is so ingrained in Indian mentality, due to the conditioning of their own social class system. This conditioning will color the way Gyan is interpreted.

    Please be aware of this: Life does not work to fit human understanding. It doesn’t follow human social conditioning. Therefore, the more we define ourselves as “good,” “BK,” “ancestral soul,” “Deity,”etc. Our views and understanding will be deeply influenced by the color of those lenses.

    That is how “numberwise” appeared. It is only a cheering phrase to establish a difference between a Brahma Kumaris adherent and the rest of the world.

    A soul comes at a particular time in the cycle. That time is when that soul will experience fullness. Thus, to call that “Golden age” or “Iron age” is of no consequence for that soul; for the expression of fullness is what matters to that soul. After that, in subsequent births, that fullness will diminish through Life’s experiences. Something that was full, must be empty. Once empty, it will need to be full. That is the song to remember about the Drama,  Life.

    Fullness or emptiness is not contingent on the “I” to change. It just happens as the experiences arrive.

    Therefore, where is that “numberwise” idea?
    Nowhere. Many times, it was explained like that for it was an aid to explain the complexity of the Drama, but that aid may become a source of ego later on.
    What are some points to check?
    To divide the cycle of time in 4 or 5 “yugas.” That is non-existent. The Drama is a continuous, a process from fullness to emptiness; which will be experienced by different souls at different levels, at different times according to their roles. A role does not imply “capacity.” That is another addition.
    Capacity for what? “Reality” is according to our consciousness, and our consciousness cannot be changed by DOING things. It changes through Life experiences. That is how we should rest assured that we are “safe” in this Drama/Life.

    In short, “numberwise” and “capacity” of the soul, are additions to Gyan to make a point: Brahma Kumaris souls are “better” than the rest. That is a source of pride, ego. Consequently, my statement that the Brahma Kumaris experience was necessary to enlarge my ego, so it could start its process of dissolution.

    We could observe that “better,” exists because there is “numberwise,” and “numberwise” exists because there is “capacity of the soul.”
    If we understand Life; the knowledge of the Drama; we could see that those words only add separation,  a fictitious status to a play,  which is a game of different actors.
    A game does not require those labels for otherwise, the fun, the enjoyment is taken away in pursuit of the ideal of the ” I” to become “better,” to have a “better status.”
    That is a true Maya.

    For the common good.
