Description

The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University, with over 40 local teaching centres across the UK, 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.

If you have ever wanted to learn to meditate, develop stress-busting techniques, feel calmer, get to know your real self or just feel a little more peaceful…the solution may be closer than you think.

We offer the teachings of Raja Yoga meditation as a way of experiencing peace of mind and a positive approach to life.

Experiences we offer...

We offer a framework for a life-changing experience. By exploring and discovering the most fundamental question of all, "Who am I?", we develop a sense of self-mastery that allows us to stay in charge of our lives. The blame game finishes. A deepening spiritual awareness gradually breaks open the cage of illusions. We regain the responsibility for creating our own lives. The present becomes a real present, a gift.

We do this by becoming adept in four areas of study

The study of spiritual knowledge

Universal truths, regarding the nature of the soul, God and the impact of a close relationship between the two, create a context for our spiritual endeavour. This understanding helps us master the ongoing flow of experiences we call life.

The practice of Raja Yoga meditation

A step-by-step process helps us to focus on our deep inner strength and potential, which then begin to flourish and expand. By thinking less and more powerfully, we start to feel our own greatness.
In this meditation we see how silence is the real gateway to contentment. Silence takes us into a world of stillness, like pressing the pause button temporarily on the film of our life.
It helps us to master time. The more time I give to silence, the more silence will give me time.

The conscious assimilation of virtues

Through this we learn that real spirituality is to be able to practise virtues in adverse circumstances. This enhances our self-respect.
We learn to master and understand the energy of love – in giving, not in taking.
We naturally focus on our own and others' virtues, rather than defects. Relationships are healed.

Serving others spiritually

The natural consequence of understanding spiritual truths, practising Raja Yoga meditation and inculcating virtues is the wish to serve others. Serving is our highest vocation, so it fills us with a new sense of purpose.
Spiritual service towards others is to help them stand on their own feet and make their own decisions. It is about empowering others so that they also see love, peace and happiness as their real treasures in the creation of their inner and outer worlds.
