Brahma Kumaris History -
Perhaps few organisations have
stimulated as much change and discussion at the time of their inception, or have
undergone such expansion in succeeding decades, as the Brahma Kumaris World
Spiritual University. Yet, throughout its growth and development, the BKWSU has
managed to maintain its original principles and adhere to its original purpose.A
year after Om Mandali’s establishment, the organisation moved from Hyderabad to
Karachi. For fourteen years, until two years after the partition of India and
Pakistan, the founding group of nearly 400 individuals lived as a
self–sufficient community devoting their time to intense spiritual study,
meditation and self transformation.
Founder’s Visions -
Dada Lekhraj’s visions revealed a body of
knowledge about the nature of the soul, of God and of time – concepts so simple
in their expression but so profound in meaning that they awakened a powerful
sense of recognition in those with whom the visions were shared.
World Headquarters -
In 1950, the community moved to Mount Abu, a
quiet place reputed for its ancient heritage and regarded as a sacred
destination by many in search of spiritual rejuvenation and empowerment. Nestled
high in the Aravali Mountains of Rajasthan, it provided an ideal location for
reflection and contemplation. After a few years in a rented building, the
community moved to the site which remains the University’s world headquarters:
Madhuban (meaning ‘Forest of Honey’)
Headquarters - Mount Abu -
India is a country rich in
tradition and legendary stories of the intrigues that depict the wars and
romances of its ancient kings and their kingdoms of unimaginable wealth. Many of
these kings or ‘rajas’ lived in the state of Rajasthan, ‘The Land of Kings’.
During the hot summers the Rajput kings travelled across the desert plains to
the cooling heights of their summer palaces in the Aravali Mountains. Today,
winding their way up the serpentine mountain road away from the desert,
travellers are wonderstruck by the magic of these mountains.
Mount Abu -
The highest peak among the Aravalis is Mount Abu. In ancient texts and folklore,
Abu is associated with the names of sages and seers; thus there are many temples
and hermitages to be found upon it. One of the most exquisite works of art in
India is the 11th century Dilwala Temple built here and maintained by the Jains.
Mt. Abu: The Town -
The town of Mount Abu itself is a bustling bazaar: dusty shops
burst into narrow streets, vendors cry out their wares and sacred cows wander
aimlessly amidst the people. More often than not, the hospitable shopkeepers
proudly introduce foreign customers to their family members. The friendly, hard
working Rajasthani people still carry the regal bearing of their heritage – the
men are decked in their turbans and the women in their colourful dresses and
- However, a short walk takes you away from the maze of activity into the
tranquil seclusion of this sacred destination whose atmosphere emanates a sense
of enchantment; and to the worldwide headquarters of the Brahma Kumaris from
whence the knowledge of the king of all yogas, Raja Yoga, is disseminated. The
headquarters complex consists of three campuses – Madhuban, Gyan Sarovar and
Shantivan – as well as a recreational park and the Global Hospital & Research
