Caring for the environment

"Creating a Climate for Change"


At the core of Brahma Kumaris' work is the understanding of the connection between our consciousness, thoughts and actions, and their impact on the world. It has been seen that long-lasting change in any social or environmental system starts with a profound shift in the minds and hearts of people. The current environmental crisis is therefore a clear call to transform our awareness and lifestyle.

A Different Consciousness - new thinking to create new realities

"Our inner climate impacts the outer climate."

We are living in times where humanity is in desperate search for answers – answers to crises experienced in every area of life. Be it social, economic, political, or environmental, we continue to search everywhere; yet the one place we can easily overlook is inside ourselves.

Many of us are beginning to see that external commitments without internal experience and conviction cannot succeed. All real changes – whether big changes in the world or small changes in my life - occur as a sequence of subtle shifts, beginning with a change in awareness. A change in awareness initiates a change of attitude. Our attitude colours our vision. When we see the world in a new way, we can no longer act in the same way as before. New actions generate a new world.

Mother Nature

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."
