Golo J.Pilz , Brahma Kumaris

Brahma Kumaris is a spiritual organisation based in India with 1500 centres globally that teach meditation and values in ethics. They are at COP21 because they want to bring consciousness into the negotiation process. They believe ethics and values from the inside have to become a fundamental part of the negotiations. Pilz explains that faith leaders reach out to large numbers of people and therefore can have a profound role to play in changing people’s habits and hearts. He explains everything is interconnected: ‘How I think, how I feel, how I act. If I change my consciousness and awareness I act differently.’ Finally, he comments on the collective Indian environmental consciousness and how it is linked to their faith
