Dadiji Prakashmani from Brahma Kumaris’ headquarters in Mount Abu, Rajasthan, India visited Texas. Dadiji met a young female, high ranking military medical officer in the U.S. Army. Dadiji looked at this young officer, and with one glance she had the experience of being with “The Light” and profound peace. The young doctor dedicated her life to the mission of Brahma Kumaris in parallel with her career.
This doctor and 25 of her military officer colleagues signed a petition and became instrumental in establishing a Raja Yoga Meditation center. In August 1977, a prominent attorney in San Antonio, Texas and Brother Ramesh of Mumbai filed paperwork with the State of Texas to register Brahma Kumaris in America. San Antonio became Brahma Kumaris’ first center in America.

Centers were then opened in Austin (1984), Houston (1992) and Dallas (1998). Dadiji Janki is now 100 years old and still serving the world.
