PURITY is the official newspaper of the Brahma Kumaris, widely circulated throughout India. An Original Core Belief of the BKs, held since its foundation in 1937,  is that 'A Great World Destruction' is imminent, BUT... it will followed by a Heaven on Earth, ++BK AND JANUARY 18 ruled by the benign Emperors Queen Lakshmi and King Narayan from their Diamond studded Palace of Gold, on the banks of the Saraswati.

              PURITY's July Editorial speaks to the organisation's attitude to this forthcoming Armageddon, and the  beatific world beyond. God has told the BKs many things over the years, and continues to do so, but how this particular miracle of transformation happens has not as yet been revealed: but surely faith and purity have much to do with it. Any way it is a ripping yarn and part of an engaging philosophy which has been of keen interest to us for some years..+=GOD + DESTRUCTION


            "The original nature of the human soul is love, but due to the predominance of matter over spirit in our culture, violence has grown to extreme proportions today. On the global level, circumstances that lead to a war-like situation are being created time and again.

It has taken several centuries for us to reach the present scenario. Initially, small weapons such as daggers were made for personal safety. Then came weapons that could hit the target from a distance, such as the spear and the bow and arrow. Later, guns and newer forms of firearms were developed. With advancements in science and technology, the cannon was invented.changed, the destruction was extended to cities. Today, the earth is totally fragmented, and there are boundaries even in the sky and the oceans.Earlier, wars were fought away from areas of human habitation, and the victors would take over the kingdom that lost the war. 

 The deadliest weapon ever tested on humanity has been the atom bomb. After it was used in the Second World War, it became obvious toall leaders that if development of nuclear weapons continued, it would bring humanity face-to-face with the threat of extinction. Everyone would suffer the same fate if a third world war was fought, and so it had to be avoided at all costs.

It was against this backdrop that the United Nations was formed to defuse political tensions across the world. But despite knowledge of the consequences, more advanced nuclear weapons were made, and peace was hard to maintain. With nuclear proliferation came the fear ofa nuclear holocaust. To prevent the arms race from getting out of hand, some countries decided not to be the first to use nuclear weapons in a conflict. They pitch these weapons as means of deterrence that will prevent another world war.Recently, however, some countries have signalled their desire to bypass previously agreed treaties and use nuclear arms against those they are in conflict with. This change of position has reignited our worst fears, which cannot be dismissed. 

The fact is that peace can only be prolonged, but not fully secured in our situation. This is because anything that is created will ultimately fulfil its purpose one day. There is little chance that countries will dismantle their nuclear stockpiles, so while we may rally for global peace, our creations will continue to threaten us with destruction

So should we look upon the future only with fear? Is there no hope for us? They say that whatever happens, happens for good. There is a silver lining even to this bleak situation. What may appear to be the means of imminent destruction will ultimately serve as one of the biggest cleansing agents on earth, and pave the way for transformation of the world order. The earth is currently going through its greatest crisis. Its five elements have deteriorated to thepoint of no return, and the animal kingdom is going through extreme suffering. Though humankind has achieved great material progress, human souls are undernourished. The most common problems affecting people today include depression, anxiety, lack of control over one’s mind, and a breakdown in relationships.

 Values have become a rarity, and violence has reached extreme levels.

When the earth is beyond repair, large-scale destruction will, in a way, bring an end to all the suffering. The cycle of life is eternal, so the destruction can never be total. The impending chaos will finally lead to constant peace; the end will become the new beginning

Nuclear war may be unavoidable, but it will act as a blessing in disguise for all of humanity, other species, and the planet. Through the act of destruction will be re-established a world order wherein the conduct of all will be based on natural love and benevolence. From a place of sorrow and suffering, the earth will be converted into a place of peace and plenty".

We also note that popular BK spokesperson BK Shivani has a different take on the 'Destruction'  matter: go to the link +=SHIVANI WOW!


Colourful Brahma Kumaris Ladder (1966) showing India's History, as per BK philosophy: The Rise and Fall of Imperishable Bharat,a favoured name for India. Armageddon has been predicted by BK in 1950, 1976 and more recently : these early predictions were nothing more than 'a teaching method' BKA Sydney assures us:nonetheless BK has removed all references to these 'teaching methods' in the teachings... well hmm... 'God does not lie' He Himself says... Hard to read but bottom left says DESTRUCTION OF IRON AGE VICIOUS WORLD IN 10 YEARS.Right bottom reads CONFLUENCE AGE (SANGAM YUGA) 40 YEARS. Confluence Age in BK theology dates from the establishment of he organisation in 1937, so again, a 1976 Destruction predicted.

They write "what may appear ... war may be unavoidable" so it looks like even they are starting to hedge their bets. Destruction was a good money making scam.

Given the He said / She said destruction controversy, it may be prudent to rename the BK circular, Purity* ...... * conditions apply.

Shivani must form a breakaway sect of true believers! The decrepit seniors gave 3 failed world's end predictions. They must be retired, in a kind but firm way.
