For 75 years the Brahma Kumaris have been working to introduce reflection and calm into everyday life - helping individuals feel more contented with the simple things in life, accessing inner wisdom to resolve conflicts, and using personal skills and talents to serve our communities.Learning to enter into a natural state of calm on a daily basis helps us to think more deeply, feel greater empathy and live out our values in more authentic ways -- improving our well-being, relationships and career paths.The Brahma Kumaris provides courses, seminars and retreats on a wide range of personal growth subjects such as meditation, self-esteem, positive thinking, stress-free living and anger management. All of our courses are inspired by the principle at the heart of Raja Yoga -- that there is a place of peace within all of us -- and by learning to experience it we can solve problems with greater compassion and integrity.With over 7,000 centres in the heart of local communities, we are able to deliver free courses and events in over in over 100 countries by trained volunteers.Perhaps few organisations have stimulated as much change and discussion at the time of their inception, or have undergone such expansion in succeeding decades, as the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University. Yet, throughout its growth and development, the BKWSU has managed to maintain its original principles and adhere to its original purpose.When the University came into being under the name “Om Mandali” it consisted of only a handful of men, women and children living in Hyderabad, Sindh (now part of Pakistan, but at that time part of colonial India). After a respected and wealthy member of their community, Dada Lekhraj, experienced a series of visions in 1936, these spiritual pioneers were inspired to transform their lives.
