"  millenarian new religious movement (NRM) of Indian origin whose teachings are based on practises involving both mediumship and channelling"
In 1952, after a 14 year period of retreat during which the Brahma-kumaris published numerous pamphlets, newspaper articles and wrote letters to important national and international figures, a more structured form of teaching began to be offered to the public by way of a seven lesson course. The movement does not associate itself with Hinduism  but projects itself as a vehicle for spiritual teaching rather than a religion.
The BKWSU teaches that this world is beyond redemption  and so the ultimate aim of Brahma Kumari followers is to gain a high status as a royalty in a soon to be heaven on earth, a member of an elite 108 or 160,000 who will be the rulers of a heaven on earth, and to create subjects for it.  A heaven on earth which is to follow a total and imminent "Destruction" of the present day world including a Nuclear holocaust and death of of the rest of humanity. This high status is achieved by supporting the movement, obeying its rules, engaging in proselytizing activities  and attempting to follow "almost inhumanly high standards" of "purity".
Questioned how dinosaurs fit within a 5,000 year Cycle of Time BK Neville Hodgkinson, a former scientific correspondent for an English national newspaper, questioned the existence of dinosaurs on the basis of the lack of bones that have been found whilst another BK follower argued that dinosaurs exist in a parallel space-time dimension and because of a warp hole end up in this dimension.
