SOBRE BRAHMA KUMARIS
Quienes somos …
Brahma Baba estableció a estas jóvenes en sus roles administrativos y trabajó con ellas para desarrollar una administración “espiritual” basada en el amor, el coraje y la práctica virtuosa desde el principio. El resultado fue que crecieron hasta tener una capacidad y un compromiso excepcionales para crear unidad.
Our Humble Beginnings ...
Our Humble Beginnings ...
The Brahma Kumaris was founded in 1937 by Dada Lekhraj Kripalani, a retired businessman living in Hyderabad – a city that now belongs to Pakistan. He was ‘given’ the spiritual name of Prajapita Brahma, and is lovingly known as Brahma Baba.
After experiencing a series of visions, Brahma Baba was inspired to create a spiritual school that emulated the principles of a virtuous life based on meditative practice. He developed a spiritual study that could be taught to people of all ages, cultures and castes and went on to share this with his immediate community. The original school, Om Mandali, consisted of a handful of men, women and children, who later developed a self-sufficient community and devoted their lives to spiritual study, meditation and self-transformation.
As the community grew in strength and numbers, their commitment to living a spiritual life also grew despite the intense social upheavals that came from Partition as Pakistan and Bangladesh were separated from India. The initial connections that forged in Hyderabad, moved to Karachi and then finally settled in Mt Abu, Rajasthan in 1950. During this time, their unique knowledge about the Soul, God and Time was revealed and a distinct curriculum based on these universal principles developed.
The Role of Women as
Mt Abu is located high in the Aravali Mountain range of Rajasthan, and provides an ideal setting for spiritual study and reflection. After partition of India, Brahma Baba used his remaining financial resources to establish what is now known as the Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya (Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University) where he nominated eight young women to take charge of administrating the university.
The Brahma Kumaris is the largest spiritual organisation in the world that is led by women and despite the fact that women being in charge was completely unheard of and very controversial back in 1937, Brahma Baba established these young women in their administrative roles and worked with them to develop a ‘spiritual’ administration based on love, courage and virtuous practice from the very beginning. The result was, they grew to have an outstanding capacity and commitment to creating unity.
For more than 82 years women have held the top administrative positions within the organisation, and have guided it as trustees in partnership with men in the organisation. It is leadership based on consensus, respect, equality and humility.
