Brahma Kumaris Godly Spiritual University is established by the incorporeal God-Father Shiv (the Supreme Soul) as a foundation to recreate the new heavenly world. God has come in this time when unrighteousness and ignorance is prevailing as clouds hiding the sun of knowledge. The present time is called Sangam Yug/ Confluence Age, an age or time period between Iron Age (Kaliyug) and the Golden Age (Satyug). God’s role is to re-establish the world which is remembered by us as Heaven. He reminds us of our true identity, that we are souls and not this physical body. This is thus Godfatherly University for world transformation. We the students here are attaining this knowledge and virtues from the spiritual father and thus the fortune of liberation in life for many many births. Through this spiritual university, we godly students are learning the truth of the creator and the creation. The source of wisdom shared at Brahma Kumaris is the Murli.
‘Om Mandli’ – as it was named, was a group of a few tens of children, mothers, young and old men, in the very beginning (late 1936) who devoted their life in the direction towards God after some or other divine experiences they received while attending a Satsang (spiritual retreat) at Dada Lekhraj’s house. Right that time, not many realised the fact that it was God who was working through the medium of Dada Lekhraj. But as they received such experiences, they continued on the path. They tolerated harsh words and opposition of the whole community including their relatives, just because they followed the way of celibacy and decided to walk on the path shown by God. In spite of the incredible social upheavals which were going on in pre-partition India, these people came together, initially in Hyderabad and a year later they moved to Karachi. With time, a simple and clear body of knowledge about the nature of the soul, God and time became revealed. In 1950 (two years after Partition), the group moved to its present location of Mount Abu, India. Until then, these nearly 400 individuals lived as a self-sufficient big family, devoting their time to intense spiritual study, meditation, and self-transformation.
Their undeviating faith and sacrifice became immortal. Now those souls who came in the very beginning are referred to as Dadi or Dada (with respect). Visit Biography section to know the Life story of such diamonds.
Now is the time of such a transformation, which only once occurs in the whole Kalpa (cycle of 5000 years). When all the world is corrupt, vicious and in sorrow, God has to come to free all Souls, his children from sorrow. God is our Supreme Father, the Supreme teacher, a guide, a friend and everyone that we need for. We have a beautiful loving relationship with Him and therefore we all pray and remember him in many ways in our difficult times. Learn about the true introduction of our long lost and now found father on this page – About God (name, form, task, incarnation), as have we heard from Him in His Murli.

This divine and beneficial task of God is our mission too. Founded in India in 1937, by the year 2018, more than 8800 centres of Brahma Kumaris Spiritual University have opened in around 140 countries. This is the largest growth of an NGO or any spiritual moment in history. This itself is a signal that world transformation is taking place and a sign of who is the one supporting backbone for this wide-spread organisation cum family to run smoothly, without any internal disputes or lack of resources. It is actually, what we learn in the Murli, that we become a follower of one advice (shrimat) of one God that we never get to a dispute. Gyan Murli is the source of our knowledge. Murli is teachings of Shiv baba through his corporeal medium of Brahma baba (Prajapita)
Now has time came again when God plays his role to re-establish the world of Peace, Purity, love, and happiness which we remember as ‘heaven’. God says; “Realise the true Self and remember me alone now. Remembering me, you will get purified from your sins of past births.” Only those Souls which are purified by Yog (remembrance of the Supreme father, the purifier) will then come to live in the New World (Golden Age). Now we have to decide our own fortune. Almighty father is with every soul (his child). Our victory over maya (5 vices) is predestined. Just follow the given Shrimat and become a Yogi soul.

This task of world transformation is getting visible in the eyes of many people who are a good observer. Many major changes are happening in the world at both physical and subtle levels. The world is at its full stage in all means. On one hand, science is reaching its height, offering all kinds of comforts; and on the other hand, human beings losing their humanity and values. This is the time when God has to restore humanity and we all are his helping hands for doing this since the father (God) is incorporeal (without a physical form).
