This discussion forum is intended to be timely and topical. You are invited to contribute to a thoughtful discussion on matters of significance. What makes a good discussion? Here are some guidelines: READ everything we have posted on the topic; RECOGNIZE that everyone’s experience is different and rooted in varying contexts and cultures; RESPOND by offering new insights, resources, and information that will engage and expand our understanding. And of course, mind your manners!

Our Discussion Forum Moderators will keep the conversation going; probing with questions; seeking alternative points of view; inviting experts in the field to respond. When someone responds to a post of yours, acknowledge the response by adding another post. True dialogue will extend through a number of posts.

The Discussion Forum is “open” 24 hours per day, 7 days per week! We encourage you to visit it frequently and become part of our spiritual learning community.

The art of writing on the discussion board is to keep the conversation going.


World Environment Day is one of the biggest and most widely celebrated global days for positive environmental action! World Environment Day activities take place all year round and climax on 5 June every year, involving everyone from everywhere. Responding to the call to live as global citizens, the Brahma Kumaris Environment Initiative introduced Sustainable Yogic Agriculture in rural India, a Green Angel seed project in Greece, and collaborates with organizations around the globe to foster greater care for each other and our increasingly fragile Earth.

The Brahma Kumaris has been actively involved in the research and development of alternative renewable energy concepts for more than 15 years. Apart from being an expression of respect for the natural resources and providing sustainable energy for the BK community, it has also been an opportunity to work together with other organisations and institutes to learn and share new technologies for wider use.

In December 2012, Sr. Jayanti, European Director of the Brahma Kumaris, spoke at COP18 in Doha where she stated that we need to focus on generating the renewable energy of hope which is spiritual, immortal and eternal.

Learning to live in Harmony with the environment and each other is among the core spiritual principles of the Brahma Kumaris. We invite you to learn more about the Brahma Kumaris commitment, actions, and innovative environmental practices and to share your thoughts with us.

  1. I just want to express my appreciation of the invaluable work done by the BK’s on every level of the human world. It has given me lots of insights as to how to contribute to a better environment by starting with my home and the places I work. Showing an attitude of respect and economy towards materials we use. This has resulted in colleagues seeing the example and following.

    I am convinced that Sr Jayanti’s statement of generating renewable energy of hope is what will lead us to a better world.
