A 'sapling' planted and nourished by 'God himself' in 1936 has now grown into a beautiful tree with its branches spread across the globe. That was the message put out by the Brahma Kumaris to celebrate its Platinum Jubilee, recently.
Initially started by a group of 300 spiritually awakened people, it has now over eigh lakh members in 8,500 branches across the globe. And they have the vision to lead a value-based life and creating a world of purity, peace and happiness.
Ever since its inception, the Brahma Kumaris had been playing on one theme, 'One God, One World'; and the best religion is the one based on love and sacrifices. And that could be achieved only if you think of others as if you were in them too; and take each and every action accordingly.
The beauty of this concept is that one will never err on the wrong side.
Even if there is an erring of a sort, it would be unintended and thus won't harm anyone.
The concept of one big family helps you see in others your own self and your brothers and sisters.
It helps you to connect with others in a manner that is divine and soul lifting.
A time comes when you feel others' pain as much as you do for your own and of your nearest and dearest ones. We are today facing a formidable global task to create opportunities to seek initiatives aimed at creating positive changes.
Sharing human and social values across the globe makes one a better and kinder human being.
The Brahma Kumaris recognises this and stresses upon the core values that lie in each human being. It reminds the world that nurturing these values by various means like Rajyoga meditation and by observing one's own peaceful principles in one's own conduct, will help create a lovelier and kinder world. If we as human beings can't think of creating a world in which every one has a pride of a place, our existence has no value.
