Beloved Dadi Janki (1916-2020), Brahma Kumaris reached her angelic stage and left her mortal coil of 104 years at 2:10am on Friday i.e. March 27, 2020. Indian Yoga Association expresses its condolences. With unshakeable conviction, she refused to set limitations for herself through her tireless service to others. She was an inspiration for individuals of all cultures and professions to live according to a higher sense of purpose and to contribute to the creation of a better world.
She was the active Spiritual Head of Brahma Kumaris. Engaged since 1937, she had been working for the well-being of others. It was very early on in her life that she commenced her search for truth and the understanding of God. Till 1950, she devoted her life to intense spiritual endeavour. The exploration of soul consciousness in meditation awakened a deeper awareness of the original and eternal identity as a source of all spiritual attainments. The practice of remembrance of God was mastered as the method for self-transformation.
After 1950, she went to London to offer her services. She became a medium for world service. Brahma Kumaris is a worldwide spiritual movement dedicated to personal transformation and world renewal. Founded in India in 1937, Brahma Kumaris has spread to over 110 countries on all continents. Through the spiritual organisation, the founder, Prajapita Brahma Baba, chose to put women in front from the very beginning, and it has set Brahma Kumaris apart on the stage of the world’s religions and spiritual organisations. For over 80 years their leadership has been characterised by steady courage, a capacity for forgiveness and a deep commitment to unity.
