Notes to Editors
The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (UK) teaches Raja Yoga meditation as a way of experiencing peace of mind and a positive approach to life. The University provides opportunities for people from all religious and cultural backgrounds to learn skills of reflection and meditation derived from Raja Yoga, which will help them develop the spiritual dimension in their lives and with it a sense of well-being, dignity and self-reliance. Across the UK we work with national and local organisations and community groups in such areas as inter-religious dialogue, youth programmes, prison outreach, social work and womens and mens groups. BKWSU (UK) was established as a UK charity in 1975, charging no fees for any of its activities, being funded by voluntary contributions.
