The Brahma Kumaris, a non-governmental organization & a socio-Spiritual & educational institute in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council and UNICEF, is an international organization headquartered in Mount Abu, Rajasthan, India with more than 9000 centers in around 140 countries across the globe.
Established in 1937, the Brahma Kumaris family today consists of people from all backgrounds and denominations, who study a body of knowledge, know as Raja Yoga Meditation.
The Knowledge is a practical method with a holistic approach to help individuals to achieve a deeper understanding of life and interact with others in a beneficial and fulfilling way.
The focus of Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University is on understanding the self, your own inner resources and strengths and works towards helping its students to develop attributes of a true leader and highest level of personal integrity.
The University’s activities are grounded in the belief that the world needs to invest more resources in educating its people with sound human, moral, and spiritual values, It is not enough to enshrine values
& ethics in institutions, systems, and constitutions, for even the best arrangements are of little use if people who implement them have wrong values.
To help facilitate the growing need for deeper research into universal values, the Brahma Kumaris have also built the Academy for a Better World. Located on a 23-acre site just three miles from BK headquarters in Mt. Abut, India, the Academy also known as Gyan Sarovar, meaning Lake of Knowledge – serves as an international education and training facility.
Designed and constructed to maximize the latest technologies in the fields of solar-and wind-generated power. It offers two large auditoriums, 13 training units, a library, playgrounds, environment park, alternative energy development building, laboratory and research section, museum, and an art gallery.
The Academy for a Better World is a common ground where professionals – managers, scientists, lawyers, doctors, educators, members of the media, healthcare workers, artists, and all others – can come together to explore and reflect on values.
They research how values can be practiced as individuals and how that experience can impact one’s profession in building value-based societies. The courses offered at the Academy not only include open dialogues but also 5 to 30 day workshops on different subject matters including self-empowerment, positive thinking, meditation, self-management and practical spirituality.
The Brahma Kumaris from their establishment date since-1937 & till now have been organizing many major national & international projects designed to give individuals the opportunity to take steps towards a better world. Million Minutes of Peace was dedicated to the United Nations International year of Peace, 1986.

Global Cooperation for a Better World, a follow-up to Million Minutes of Peace, was launched from the United Nations in New York and the Houses of Parliament in London in 1988.
As an international peace Messenger Initiative, it had the support of more than 400 companies worldwide and involved tens of thousands of people.
