Mount Abu, June 1: Rajyogini Brahma Kumari Mohini Panjabi has been appointed as the new Additional Administrative Head of the Brahma Kumaris, the largest international spiritual organisation run by women that has about 4,500 service centers in 140 countries.
The management committee of this non-governmental organisation announced the decision after the demise of Rajyogini Brahma Kumari Dadi Ishu who died last month. She joins Dadi Ratan Mohini who is the present Chief Administrative Head.
BK Mohini has been with the Brahma Kumaris (BK’s) since childhood in Delhi, actively serving while she was a student of political science and journalism at the University of Delhi, from which she graduated in 1961. She served with the founder, Brahma Baba, opening centres in India. In 1974 she began to serve abroad. She established a Brahma Kumaris North American presence, first in the Caribbean in Guyana (1976) and then in 1978 moved to New York, creating a national headquarters for the BK’s in the USA. She is president of the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Organization of the USA. She serves as regional coordinator of the Brahma Kumaris for the Americas and the Caribbean and is representative of the BK’s to the United Nations.
While she has spent much of her spiritual service life bringing the BK’s spiritual knowledge and insights to the world, she has remained deeply committed to the spiritual foundation and organizational evolution of the Brahma Kumaris in India. She has served on the management committee at headquarters, made extended trips twice a year and sustained close relationships with BK’s at headquarters, throughout India and the world.
