Dadi janki
Quote

…Finally, I mention Dadi Janki, the spiritual leader of the Brahma Kumaris, based on Mount Abu in Rajasthan, who, 20 years ago, when I was in my 50s and she was in her 80s—she is now 103—began showing me, through her love and compassion, that I, like everyone else, had spirit within me. When we act from that connection, it is good for each of us and for all of us. The vision that Dadi shares has inspired values-based educational programmes around the world in schools, with young leaders, and in the Brahma Kumaris institution."

Lord Stone speaking about Dadi Janki in the UK Parliament (House of Lords), responding to the report by the Commission on Religious Education Religion and Worldviews: the way forward, published in September.
