Let's Write a New Story Together...
I came to the United States of America in 1978. The gifts I brought to this country were the deep spiritual insights that I accumulated since I was 16 years old. The gift I received in return was an environment in which these insights were greatly enriched – and this has contributed to my own growth in an extraordinary manner.
The story of the world is now very old. Modern America’s part, although relatively recent, reflects the ongoing human struggle of good over evil, order over chaos. But this is an ancient story that has grown so complex that it has become difficult to discern the truth from fiction. It is a story that to some is now wholly out of control. It is a story whose basic values have come into question. It is a story that perhaps has had its day.
I believe the people of America have a powerful, positive role to play in humanity’s future — in a new story of humankind. This belief is based on a culture of authenticity — building a community where everyone has permission to be himself or herself, and no one has to melt down into one common mold. It is based on a culture of promptness to act — leading to newness and innovation. It is also based on a culture of natural dedication and unity — which is easily stirred by a significant cause or a higher purpose.
The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Organization is dedicated to the development of a new story — one that reflects the empowerment of every individual to manifest his or her purest being on the fundamental principles of peace, love, happiness, and contentment for all.
This booklet tells the story of the work of the Brahma Kumaris in this wonderful land of America. I invite you to participate with us to whatever degree you feel comfortable as we move forward into the future.
With my warmest regards,
President, Brahma Kumaris, USA
