BRAHMA KUMARIS WORLD SPIRITUAL UNIVERSITY
The philosophy, perspective and purpose
Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya, (Brahma Kumaris in short) is a unique, spiritual, value-based educational institution. The Vidyalaya and two institutions created by it, namely Rajyoga Education and Research Foundation, and Brahma Kumaris Academy for a Better World, are dedicated to the goal of establishing a value-based society. They focus on development of human potential, bringing harmony into human relationships and changing the attitudes and outlook of people to promote the spirit of brotherhood, love and co-operation. The institution is open to all irrespective of caste, creed, age and social, economic or political status.
In order to achieve the goal of establishing a new world order in which there is honesty, sincerity and goodwill, the three institutions help people get a clear vision of their goal and their role in the world. They give people knowledge of their true identity and teach the theory and practice of Rajyoga meditation, by which one can become free of stress, anger, hatred and other negativity that causes conflicts in society and degrades the individual. They offer guidance in the inculcation of moral values and divine virtues that enable individuals to experience lasting peace and bliss.
The institution recognizes the intrinsic spirituality of every human being and helps people rediscover the goodness within them, thus encouraging and facilitating the development of spiritual awareness through a process of lifelong learning. The institution’s purpose is to share its vision of a world where people live in harmony with others and to strengthen individual awareness of the dignity and inherent worth of every human being.
The education imparted by the institution, though visibly spiritual in content, is a blend of ethics, practical psychology, metaphysics or philosophy, the gist of world history and culture, sociology, political science and several other subjects.
As an international institution, the Brahma Kumaris offers people of all backgrounds an opportunity to learn meditation and deepen their understanding of universal principles and values through a variety of educational programmes and learning resources. As a worldwide family of individuals from all walks of life, the institution provides a caring, cooperative and supportive environment that encourages individuals to bring out the best in them.
The Brahma Kumaris is run mostly by women with a spirit of dedication and sacrifice for the welfare of the society. The institution is funded through voluntary contributions by its students. Its services are offered free of charge.
