The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (BKWSU) (UK) teaches Raga Yoga as a way of experiencing peace of mind and a positive approach to life. The Universiy provides opportunities for people from all religious and cultural backgrounds to explore their own spirituality and learn skills of reflection and meditation derived from Raja Yoga, which will help develop inner calm, clear thinking and personal well-being.
Across the UK, the BKWSU works with national and local organisations and community groups in such areas as inter-religious dialogue, youth programmes, prison outreach, social work and women's and men's groups. BKWSU (UK) was established as a UK charity in 1975 and charges no fees for any of its activities, being funded by voluntary contributions. The University is part of a worldwide network of over 8,500 centres in more than 100 countries, the first of which was founded in India in the 1930s.
The current Spiritual Head of the Brahma Kumaris is a founding student now aged in her late 90s, Dadi Janki. The BKWSU is active in interfaith dialogue and supports interfaith groups throughout Scotland.
