Peace is the foundation on which prosperity and happiness can grow. Sustainable peace within a country or community can only be established when individuals learn to find peace within themselves. As a way of supporting the people of Mozambique, the Brahma Kumaris Spiritual Organisation opened a branch in Maputo in August 2004. The Organisation offers a range of courses, workshops and seminars focusing on personal development with the aim to understand and know the self on a spiritual level, using meditation as a tool to develop an inner sense of well-being and peace.
Some of the most popular courses and seminars offered are on Raja Yoga Meditation, positive thinking, stress free living, anger management together with 1 day retreats, workshops and lectures on spirituality. Every third Sunday the center offers Meditation for Peace to which everyone is welcomed. The activities of the Organisation have frequently been highlighted in the local media such as radio and television talk shows, highlighting the need for integrating spirituality in daily living.
"Today. I find myself more interested in simplicity and humility because I now understand that these two virtues are the key to spiritual success. The highest moment of my learning with the Brahma Kumaris was the knowledge and experience of happiness when finding that each human being, without exception, is God's child, a brother and a sister" – Carlos Magaia
