About Us

Sis Bharati


Sis Bharati took up Brahma Kumaris Raja Yoga meditation in Adelaide, Australia in 1978 when she was residing there. Inspired by the truth and practicality of the knowledge she had received and the new life she had discovered, she decided to return to Singapore to start the BK Raja Yoga Centre in 1980. A trained pharmacist by profession, she took the initiative to work and run the centre at the same time. From the seed she had sown in Singapore, it became possible to emerge centres in Malaysia, China and Myanmar. From a small family of 15-20 BKs, the membership has grown exponentially with many thousands having completed the basic course.

Sis Bharati passed away peacefully in October 2019 and while she may no longer be with us, her vision and passion continues to inspire the ever-growing service in Singapore.

Sis Lakshmi

Sister Lakshmi, National Coordinator, Singapore Regional Coordinating Team, Asia-Pacific Region

Sister Lakshmi came across Brahma Kumaris Raja Yoga meditation when she was still a student. Intrigued by the concept of open-eyed meditation and the clear answers Raja Yoga provided, she continued with her practice and decided to volunteer her services at the Centre once she started working. A teacher by profession, she provided the framework for the Raja Yoga English courses currently offered by the Centre and played a key role in training instructors who conducted Raja Yoga sessions. Over the years, Sister Lakshmi has been instrumental in leading numerous national projects, organizing talks and seminars, and overseeing administrative functions while ensuring the welfare of members.

In 2019, Sister Lakshmi was appointed National Coordinator of Brahma Kumaris Raja Yoga Centre, Singapore. Throughout the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, she played a pivotal role in sustaining the spiritual and emotional well-being of many, offering valuable advice and support in their time of need.

In 2024, Sister Lakshmi was invited to be part of the Regional Coordinating Team of the Asia-Pacific Region.
