In this second interview of the Lighthouse Dialogues, journalist and author Vicki MacKenzie will talk with Sister Jayanti Kirpalani, the Director of Brahma Kumaris’ activities in Europe and the Middle East.

As a spiritual teacher for over 50 years, Sister Jayanti has dedicated her life to self-transformation and service to humanity. She continues to champion the co-operative role of spiritual organisations in creating a just and peaceful world, bringing spiritual principles to the discussion tables of politicians, economists, business leaders, scientists and nearly every stakeholder of our times. Sister Jayanti sees the erosion of spiritual values as the underlying cause of the crises the world is facing today.
