The Brahma Kumaris is a worldwide organisation dedicated to personal transformation and world renewal through the power of meditation. Their practice of Raja Yoga meditation involves self-transformation through elevated thoughts and connection with the Divine in silence. This is not a devotional path, rather it is a path of lifelong learning, study and application in daily life.

The Brahma Kumaris’ Environment Initiative is about awakening greater environmental awareness within our own organisation, as well as collaborating and learning from others through dialogue, partnerships, UN conferences and local initiatives. The BKs support all interfaith efforts that aim to bring more awareness about the state of the environment and our urgent need to care for it.
At the core of Brahma Kumaris' work is the understanding of the connection between our consciousness, thoughts and actions, and their impact on the world. It has been seen that long-lasting change in any social or environmental system starts with a profound shift in the minds and hearts of people. The current environmental crisis is therefore a clear call to transform our awareness and lifestyle.
Any shift in individual awareness is reflected in society as a whole. To bring stability, resilience and compassionate action on a global scale, we believe a widespread capacity for silent reflection and meditation is essential. Such an ‘inside-out’ approach, applied by large communities, can be the key to the paradigm shift that allows all stakeholders to make choices benefiting the planet and its future.
Brahma Kumaris is a selfless organisation that promotes spiritual values and helps people to find peace and to come forward to offer service for the betterment of everyone- Ajay Bhavsar, engineer.
