Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University “The future of mankind depends on us, on each of us, each in our own way. It is our shared and individual responsibility, yours and mine. Indeed, it is only with the assistance of everyone, the support of everyone, each of us working in our own way in accordance with our means and potential that such a huge task can be accomplished. Peace is neither an unattainable ideal nor an abstract concept. It is very tangible: it is above all a right, the legitimate right of every individual to be able to develop, free from the threat of destruction, in harmony and justice, with self-respect and respect for others.” – Ambassador Jan Matenson, former Director of the UN Centre for Human Rights, Geneva.
