The Spirit of the 21st Century
The challenge of living and prospering in the world today requires a wider range of personal skills and abilities than at any other time in human history. Continuously accelerating change and the transition into the new millennium is calling for a new kind of education that re-awakens and empowers the spirituality of the individual.
A University for the World
In its simplest definition, 'spirituality' means knowing how to live with meaning and purpose. The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University, with around 4,000 branches in over 70 countries, offers people of all backgrounds an opportunity to deepen their understanding of universal spiritual principles and learn a range of spiritual skills through a variety of educational programmes, courses and learning resources.
Learning for Life
The University recognises the intrinsic spirituality and goodness of every human being. It helps people to rediscover that goodness within themselves, encouraging and facilitating the development of spiritual awareness, attitudes and behaviours through a process of lifelong learning.
Courses, seminars and workshops include: the Foundation Course in Meditation, Self-esteem, Positive Thinking, Self Managing Leadership and Stress Free Living. Many other courses are also held on the development of self-management and inter-personal skills.
Around the world the University is actively involved in working with local communities and helping to develop the spiritual dimension within the key issues which currently face youth, women, interfaith, business, prison life, education, the environment, science and health care.
The University is an independent body and there are no fees for its services. Each Centre is administered and supported financially by the voluntary contributions of its teachers and students who live and work in the local community.
The University is a non-governmental organisation in general consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, in consultative status with UNICEF and affiliated to the UN Department of Public Information. The Brahma Kumaris are also the recipient of seven UN Peace Messenger awards.
