The administrative head of Prajapita Brahmakumari Eshwariya Vishwavidhyalaya (BKWSU), Dadi Prakash Mani, died here today after prolonged illness.
She was taken to a hospital in Ahmedabad on August 21, where doctors said that there was a slim chance of her survival as she had suffered from brain haemorrhage. She was 87.
On August 22, she was brought to Shanti Van Parishad situated in the premises of the Vishwavidhyalaya (university), where she died.
Her last rites would be performed on Monday.
BKWSU is an internationally recognised university and non-government organisation with around 4,000 branches in over 80 countries.
The Brahma Kumaris offer people of all backgrounds an opportunity to learn meditation and deepen their understanding of universal principles and innate values through a variety of educational programs, courses and learning resources.
In 1951, the university's world headquarters moved to Mount Abu in Rajasthan, where it remains to this day.
In 1969, Brahma Baba passed away, 93, handing over leadership to Dadi Prakashmani as the administrative head of the organisation. (ANI)
