The Chief of Brahma Kumaris Dadi Janki will be visiting Hyderabad from September 1 to 3. Dadi Janki, who is 102 years old, has dedicated more than 82 years of her life to the work of the Prajapita Brahma Kumari Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya of which she is the Administrative Head. After serving throughout India in the years following independence, she moved to London, UK, in 1974 and from there, her vision and drive saw the organisation’s teachings carried into more than 127 countries.
Born in the northern Indian province of Sind (now part of Pakistan) in 1916, Dadi Janki joined Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya in 1937, at that time a 400-strong community of mainly women were part of the commune. She has travelled to more than 100 countries visiting community projects, addressing major conferences and events and meeting world leaders in many fields, including religion, politics and science.
One of few women spiritual leaders in India (and the world), she played a key role in establishing teaching centres across the country, empowering individuals to bring spiritual values into their lives and women in particular to develop self-reliance and leadership skills.
Dadi is deeply and compassionately aware of the selfish tendencies that currently afflict human relationships and affairs, and that put our world in peril. However, she is a visionary, with an unswerving optimism. “In the winter, we foresee the spring,” she says. “Those with a positive vision of the future give us an image of a world on this planet where all things are given freely, where the highest human potential is fully realised,” she shares.
