Who currently heads Brahma Kumaris?
When the founder, Brahma Baba passed from this life in January 1969, the leadership of the community continued with members of the original group of young women. Today, the few surviving leaders, mostly in their eighties and nineties, carry a powerful presence, having spent a lifetime mastering the inculcation and application of spiritual knowledge. DadiJanki currently serves as Administrative Head of the Brahma Kumaris worldwide, DadiHirdayaMohini as Additional Administrative Head and DadiRatanMohini as Joint Administrative Head.
These women, fondly called Dadis (elder sisters), serve as instruments who share a total dedication to God. Regarded as senior yogis, they have an immense love and regard for one another and an absolute commitment to world service.
What does ‘Brahma Kumaris' mean?
Brahma Kumaris means ‘daughters of Brahma'. Seminal to the vision of world renewal was the revelation of the important and prominent role of women as spiritual teachers. Brahma Baba correctly foresaw that core values based on traditionally feminine qualities – patience, tolerance, sacrifice, kindness and love – would increasingly become the foundation of progress in personal growth, human relations and the development of caring communities. To maintain the emphasis on this vital core of leadership, he named the organisation The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University.
