Commonly Asked Questions
Our Curriculum has been developed over more than 80 years of intense meditation (tapasia) and lifestyle practice. Originally it was put together by the Founder of Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (Dada Lekhraj) who had a series of life changing visions. Then later it was built upon and developed by several highly evolved Senior Yogis (including Indian and Westerners BK's).
Each Centre offers a different range of activities (so please check with our individual locations) however, almost all of our centre offer our Raja Yoga Meditation Course. We also offer evening Meditation Sessions and additional Spiritual Classes that focus on Spiritual topics relating to our core values.
You are welcome to come and attend whatever you wish, however we do recommend you do our Raja Yoga Meditation Course as this allows you to learn our open eyed meditation technique as well as some important foundations for Meditation.
Definitely! In fact, this is a wonderful way to learn Meditation and discover what each member of the family needs. If your family does have special needs then please contact the centre to get a suggestion on how to proceed. Sometimes when Families have lived through trauma together - it is good to learn in your own special class (so that we can address any issues). And at other times, its good to merge with a general group because its more helpful and we can support your situation better in a setting like this.
Here at Brahma Kumaris, we have many families that meditate together and we have a lot of experience with this.
You are welcome to come and take what appeals to you the most. Our only requirement is: our entire lives are dedicated to living a very high (elevated) Yogi Life and our information is based upon the ancient practices of Raja Yoga knowledge that's centuries old - so we ask that you respect that. We are 100% committed to self progress and assisting other people - whoever wants to share our knowledge or finds value in it. So we like to keep a high vibration at all our Meditation and Retreat Centres and we hope you will like to do this to when you are with us.
We like the thought of working with a "pay it forward system" and this means that a previous person has already paid for you to attend our centre, retreat centre or class location today... and so when you make a donation (of whatever... time or money), you in fact, will be paying for another person to attend a course, a class or a retreat that's special to them (just as we hope, today is special for you...).
All of our activities rely on the generosity of those who come to benefit from our courses,classes and retreats, so financial contributions (from any guests) goes 100% to assisting with all running costs.
However, we generally will not approach you for money for our courses and classes (retreats operate slightly differently) and we accept donations anonymously. So if you'd like to contribute financially to our running costs - please donate as you feel...
