Spirituality is about exploring who I am and how as a spiritual being I can best manage the material world.
靈性是關於探索 “我是誰”, 以及身為一個靈性存有的我, 如何才能最好地治理這個物質世界 。
The Brahma Kumaris philosophy is based on the ancient wisdom of Raja Yoga, which pre-dates religion. The tools to explore and research these teachings are meditation and study and does not involve prayer and ritual. It is open to people of all backgrounds and has often been experienced to enhance one's own practise.
Historically, the first mention of meditation is in reference to yoga. Yoga is over 2,500 years old, pre-dating the formation of any religions. The term yoga literally means to connect or join. It describes a unified outlook,serenity of mind,skill in action,and the ability to stay attuned to the self, atma,and to connect to Paramatma, the Soul Beyond.
Established in 1937, the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University in Mt. Abu, India, is an NGO with general consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and is in consultative status with UNICEF. It is also affiliated to the UN Department of Public Information. Free of any religious affiliation and open to people of all backgrounds, affiliated associations have now been established in over 130 countries.
The aim of the Brahma Kumaris is to revive the ancient teachings of raja yoga through: meditation, the cultivation of the mind and yoga, a connection with the Source, understood to be energy, light, cosmic consciousness.
