Brahma Kumaris is a worldwide spiritual movement dedicated to personal transformation and world renewal. Founded in 1936 in Hyderabad, Sindh (Present Pakistan) by Prajapita Brahma Baba, Brahma Kumaris has spread to over 137 countries on all continents and has had an extensive impact in many sectors as an international NGO. However, their real commitment is to helping individuals transform their perspective of the world from material to spiritual. It supports the cultivation of a deep collective consciousness of peace and of the individual dignity of each soul.
In 1950, The spiritual headquarters of Brahma Kumaris shifted from Pakistan (Karachi) to India, to the beautiful Aravali Ranges of Mountains (Mount Abu) in Rajasthan. While activities of international interest are coordinated regionally from offices in London, Moscow, Nairobi, New York and Sydney. At a national level, activities are generally coordinated by local people in alignment with the spiritual principles of Brahma Kumaris, working in accordance with the laws of the land.
After the ascension of Prajapita Brahma to the subtle world in 1969, Rajyogini Dadi Prakashmani was appointed the Administrative Head of the Institution.
