Prakashmani Scholar to be announced

The Brahma Kumaris office at the United Nations recently offered Brahma Kumaris students from around the world the opportunity to gain work experience at the Brahma Kumaris office, at United Nations headquarters in New York. This opportunity is supported by the Prakashmani Scholarship, which contributes USD $3000 towards travel and living costs, for the intern.

Dadi Prakashmani was a pioneer for all women and the spiritual leader of the Brahma Kumaris from 1969 until 2007. Dadi guided the expansion of the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University from one country into well over 120 countries and a student body from thousands to hundreds of thousands. She had a remarkably unique ability to cross boundaries of language and culture giving all people a most powerful sense of belonging. Dadi Prakashmani lead with a mind that constantly saw the potential and virtue in all people, and had an intellect that was far-reaching, seeing every external challenge as an opportunity for internal change. Dadi was known for her abundant and nurturing heart that somehow brought out the natural beauty and brilliance of whoever was in front of her. Dadi’s character and behaviour upheld the original and true founding vision of the organisation. She carried the flame of absolute truth and purity with her, at every step and in every breath. Dadi Prakashmani also had a deep inspiration about the potential of the Brahma Kumaris to contribute something special and unique to the work of peace that formed the vision of the founding members of the United Nations. It is her inspiration that ultimately led to our affiliation and status with the United Nations.

From more than 300 requests for applications, we received more than 150 completed applications in return. There were a remarkable number of high quality applications. While it was a challenging process to narrow the field to one worthy applicant, we have made our selection and will announce it on the anniversary of Dadi Prakashmani’s passing, August 25
