Ok, thanks for this and I’ll re watch again. He may not also mention due to the beliefs instilled too, or potential backlashes. Even law, I have read around that BK’s are happy to use the law to manipulate their benefit.

It’s basically a suicide mission from how I’m seeing it. Saddening.

Yes that’s right, I have read this previously too. The weblink for Brahma Kumaris info says a bit about this too, and some of what you posted here is similar to what is written there so may be from the same authors.

Yes it is a scary part, I know that there are terrible things on the planet as we are, but to wish wiping us all out makes me wonder what would happen if BK’s themselves manage to amass enough money to obtain nukes. Maybe that is what they are doing. It would be the surprise moment for all world leaders and people I’m sure, (should any survive) no one would expect a cult to do it.

He may, though through the many instances I came across it in his videos through following them, he seems to go into fear on most occasions unless of course it is part of the act for the story / talk he’s giving.

He does! I thought he dealt especially well with the spot at the beginning where Shunya decides to do some Om’s and invocation. I felt that an awkward spot but that’s me !
He mentions all kinds of environmental

This says a lot. Thank you for pointing it I’ll also re watch, it helps greatly.
Check this out...
Has the BKWSU re-written its history?
Yes, extensively and regularly in numerous hagiographic histories and biographies. This has been hidden from followers.
Please see our BKWSU History forum for details and discussion. Evidence clearly shows where the current leadership have colluded in passing on a falsified version of the organization's development.
Has the BKWSU re-written its philosophy?
Yes. Extensively. This, and its process of development, has been hidden from followers.
The BKWSU largely claims that its philosophy is derived from mediumistic channelled messages they believe are God speaking directly to them. During its history, especially in the early years, it used a number of different mediums some of which, such as the "Golden Circle", left the organization and are no longer officially discussed or acknowledged.’
It could explain the ‘they’ Shunya refers to, and then check this out:Link
