What we're about


The Brahma Kumaris Centre for Spiritual Learning (BKCSL) in Auchenflower has occupied its present location in a 100 year old Queenslander, for 17 years. Part of a larger international organisation, Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (BKWSU), the BK Centre for Spiritual learning teaches the arts and skills to live a life of peace and happiness.

Employing meditation, study, workshops, seminars and group conversations the BKCSL is a free community service, funded by donations and run by volunteers. We teach a variety of spiritual topics at our Auchenflower centre including but not limited to;

• Who am I? (am I just the sum of my brains firing neurons?)

• Where am I from? (where was I before I was born into this life?)

• Who or what is God (if God exists, where is 'He', what does 'He' look like, what does 'He' do and what doesn't 'He' do?)

• The journey of the soul (reincarnation. where's the evidence for that?))

• The spiritual laws of action (karma. As you sow, so shall you reap. So we want to be sure about the types of actions we perform)

• The spiritual powers (the soul has many hidden powers. What are they and how do we develop them?)

• The incalculable value of virtues (you can't buy virtues no matter how much money you have, but they are worth their weight in gold. How so?)

• The arts of living (it takes wisdom to navigate through today's complexities. Is there extra knowledge I can gain to make it easier and more fun?)

• Healthy diet (we hold vegan and vegetarian cooking demonstrations on our garden stage)

• Contributing my spiritual resources to the world (it's been said that to give is to receive. Is this true and what is it I should be giving?)

• What is time and is everything predestined? (Science knows exactly what time it is but not what time is. Is there something they don't know?)

• Soul consciousness (The journey through life can be easy or difficult. Is there a new paradigm that enables greater success through less effort?)

• Meditation (It's my mind, my thoughts and feelings but do I manage them or do they manage me?)

• Science and spirituality (There's a lot of new post-materialist science which supports a spiritual perspective to life. What to find out more?)

• The power of silence (The power of silence is greater than the power of science. Is that true and if so, why and how?)

• The interaction between spirit and matter (The famous double-slit experiment shows that the observer has an effect on matter. Spiritually, what's the significance in this?)

• The benefit in belief (Are your current beliefs serving you? What would it take to change them if they are doing you a diservice?)

The BKWSU is the largest spiritual organisation in the world that is administered by women since its founding in India in the mid 1930's.
