For over 40 years, the Brahma Kumaris have been helping to bring together people of different faiths and cultures, believing that a deeper understanding between faiths, based on acceptance and respect, will contribute to a culture of peace and non- violence in our communities.
To enjoy the diversity of our local communities, the Brahma Kumaris visit mosques, churches, temples and synagogues supporting and sharing in each faith’s traditions and festivals. Collaborative relationships with other faith based local organisations such as St.Ethelburga’s Peace and Reconciliation Centre, the London interfaith Centre, Women’s Interfaith Network and the Brent Multi faith Forum have contributed to open dialogue and more interreligious understanding.
On an international level the Brahma Kumaris work closely with leading international organisations including the United Religions Initiative (URI), Global Peace Initiative of Women and the Elijah Interfaith Institute. In many countries, Brahma Kumaris serve on committees of local interfaith organisations, host local activities, and take an active part in religious education advisory boards
