The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Organization is a worldwide spiritual organization dedicated to personal transformation and world renewal by acknowledging the intrinsic goodness of all people. We teach a practical method of meditation called RajaYoga, that helps individuals understand their inner strengths and values by transforming the self and creating a collective consciousness hence transforming the world.
The spiritual headquarters of Brahma Kumaris is in Mount Abu, India comprising of a worldwide network of centers in more than 120 countries and is an international non-governmental organization (NGO) of the United Nations accredited with General Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). In the United States we have about 30 centers and 3 retreat centers.
Our mission is to inspire personal transformation and spiritual growth for individuals from all walks of life. All our courses are inspired by the principle at the heart of RajaYoga – 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.
