Value Education & Spirituality

An Initiative of Education Wing of RERF

Values are powerful determinants of human accomplishment, progress, fulfillment, and evolution. People may dedicate their entire lives or even give up their lives to pursue their values. The virtues that determine our decisions and guide our lives are already withn us, it only depends on how much we recognize, value and use them. The Brahma Kumaris have always aspired to inculcate the elevated values and qualities in man’s daily life, so that he is not only free from suffering and anxiety but also empowered to lend virtues and spiritual learning to the people and atmosphere around him.

It was with this higher goal of human existence that the Brahma Kumaris targeted formal education in schools and colleges, so that education not just prepares us to acquire skills and earn livelihood but sharpens our inner qualities and virtues that make us a better human being with embellishments of cordiality, sociability, generosity, peace, happiness, purity, divinity, etc. In the year 2009, the Brahma Kumaris and the Annamalai University, Annamalai Nagar (TN) signed an MoU to start academic courses of Value Education & Spirituality. This one year course called Post-Graduate Diploma in Value Education & Spirituality is in the distance education stream and can be pursued by students of India and Nepal. Gradually other courses and universities followed. Now the Brahma Kumaris have MoUs of Value Education courses with 16 universities and 6 autonomous colleges of the country.

Grooming the Potential in Girls

We all are conscious of the fact that our women-folk have often been ignored in essential matters of family life, education, and even their own future course of life. It was in 1983 when the Brahma Kumaris realized the need and undertook the responsibility of showing the path to positively and constructively utilize the girls’ potential of head and heart for the social uplift. In 1983, the Brahma Kumaris started at Indore (Madhya Pradesh) ‘Shakti Niketan’ a hostel for girls. Its very successful and encouraging results in grooming the girls into responsible and principled personalities persuaded the organization to start another similar hostel for girls at Nadiad in Gujarat in 1989. It is a matter of pride that both these landmarks are functioning like ideal institutes not just in education but in holistic personality development for the girl-child.

Touch the light

An Initiative of Youth Wing of RERF

The human character undergoes a change almost every day, but the most crucial period of his life is the adolescent age when he is no longer a child but is also not accepted as a grown-up. He shuttles almost like the pendulum of a wall-clock between the two extremes and both ways he gets censured.

Up to 2018 – Over 3000 Schools | Over 5 Lakhs Students | Over 15000 Faculties
