About the Brahma Kumaris

Brahma Kumaris is a worldwide spiritual movement that is dedicated to personal transformation and world renewal.

Founded in 1936, the organization has spread to more than 137 countries in 5 continents and has had a significant impact on all sections of society.

As an international NGO associated with the United Nations Department of Public Relations, Brahma Kumaris is committed to helping individuals transform themselves based on the understanding of their true, spiritual identity and connecting with the divine.

At Brahma Kumaris, we believe that each person has an innate ability to connect with their inner self and that through meditation and spiritual reflection, individuals can achieve a state of inner peace and harmony.

Meaning of Parasmani

The name “Paras Mani”, which means “touchstone” or “philosopher’s stone” and “jewel” or “gem”, it’s possible to draw some connections to the programs and activities offered at Parasmani Retreat Center.

The “touchstone” or “philosopher’s stone” aspect of the name could be interpreted as a symbol of transformation or change.

This could be related to the retreat center’s focus on spiritual empowerment, which can help individuals transform their mental and emotional states for the better.

The “jewel” or “gem” aspect of the name could be seen as a symbol of inner beauty and potential. This could be connected to the retreat center’s emphasis on promoting personal growth and well-being, as well as their offering of cultural programs that promote the local culture and economy.

The name suggests the idea of transformation and the realization of one’s true potential, which aligns with the retreat center’s focus on promoting personal growth and well-being.
