The Brahma Kumaris are a Hindu spiritual movement that originated in Hyderabad, Sindh, during the 1930s. The Brahma Kumaris (Sanskrit: ब्रह्माकुमारी, “People of Brahma”) movement was founded by Lekhraj Kripalani. The organization is affiliated with the United Nations and is known for the prominent role that women play in the movement.
It teaches a form of meditation that focuses on identity as souls, as opposed to bodies. They believe that all souls are intrinsically good and that God is the source of all goodness. They teach to transcend labels associated with the body, such as race, nationality, religion, and gender, and it aspires to establish a global culture based on what it calls “soul-consciousness”.
In 2008, the movement claimed to have more than 825,000 regular students, with over 8,500 centers in 100 countries. Source: Wikipedia.
