Spirituality is both ‘a science of being’ and ‘an art of living’. As the science of spirit, spirituality not only differentiates the ‘physical body’ from the ‘sentient being or soul’, but also delineates the supremacy of soul over the senses.

Spirituality delves deep and depicts the true identity of ‘inner self’ as a microscopic sentient point of divine light located somewhere between and behind the eye brows. It subtly conveys that all human beings are basically ‘spiritual beings’ with ‘human experiences’.

After taking successive births in the mundane body, nature, community and society, the soul’s reserve of latent positive energy gets expended and gradually depletes. And its original nature undergoes change from pure to impure and from positive to negative.

To save humanity from further degeneration, spiritual masters come to promote the practice of spirituality and to popularise it as an art of living. Prajapita Brahma, the corporeal founder of the Brahma Kumaris institution was one such spiritual leader.

He lived and taught spirituality by his own actions to bring positive change and peace in the lives of thousands of people. He created leaders, not followers.

Enlightened by a series of divine visions and godly revelations in the late 1930s, he underwent spiritual empowerment as a strong tool to arrest moral and ethical degeneration in society. Thereby, he set in motion the law of anti-entropy in the lives of people who embraced spirituality as a way of life and became empowered.

His teachings remind us to remain in consciousness and in search of peace, love and happiness. It enhances the quality and quantum of positive energy self-enabling you to experience harmony. It brings balance between material and moral and makes life blissful.
