About : 

  • Rajyogini Dadi Janki, the late spiritual head of the Brahma Kumaris, a global organisation with its headquarters in Mount Abu, India, was a widely admired woman leader. Her example, teachings and caring nature won hearts and inspired courage. She introduced the ancient technique of Rajyoga meditation to millions of people across the world.
  • Born in 1916, Dadi Janki had a deep concern for the well-being of others. She dedicated her life to spiritual service at the age of 21, after coming in contact with the Brahma Kumaris.
  • Between 1937 and 1951, as part of a community of nearly 400 people, she devoted her time to intense spiritual efforts as well as being the main nurse for the community. She mastered the practice of Rajyoga meditation as a method for self-transformation.
  • In the decades that followed India’s independence, she served throughout the country teaching Rajyoga to spiritual seekers. In 1974, she was sent by the organisation to London, United Kingdom, from where her vision and drive saw the teachings of the Brahma Kumaris carried to more than 120 countries.
  • Dadi Janki’s lifelong focus was to align her mind and heart to a higher purpose. She showed people of all background how to regain true self-respect, become free of negative tendencies and serve the world. For this service, she was internationally acknowledged as a powerful spiritual leader.
  • Dadi Janki was a friend and guide to prominent figures across the world. Authors, university teachers, politicians, artists, scientists and religious leaders from all cultures and faiths found in her wise counsel comfort and reassurance on their own life’s journey. She encouraged them to serve to uplift the world through a deep inner commitment to peace, universal love and happiness.
  • Even as she travelled all over the world and met people from different walks of life, Dadi Janki remained a simple and humble server.
  • Dadi Janki was deeply aware of the selfish tendencies that afflict human relationships and affairs and that put our world in peril. However, she was a visionary with an unswerving faith. “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 said.
  • Dadi Janki also personified Indian culture in many ways. She translated the symbols and stories of the Indian scriptures into frameworks understandable for those of other cultures, enabling people of all faiths to appreciate the depth of the traditions of India.
  • Dadi Janki took the lead in contributing to an ethical and spiritual approach to global issues such as women’s empowerment and environment protection. She also encouraged and inspired inter-religious understanding and cooperation throughout her life.
  • Dadi Janki passed away on March 27, 2020, at the age of 104.
