Rev Professor Frank Whaling 1934-2022
It is with sadness that we heard of the passing of Rev. Professor Frank Whaling at the end of November. Emeritus Professor of the Study of Religion at Edinburgh University and Founder and Chair of the Edinburgh Interfaith Association, Frank had been a very close friend of the Brahma Kumaris since 1979. He subsequently studied the Brahma Kumaris deeply and made several visits to our spiritual headquarters in Mt Abu, Rajasthan, India. This culminated in a book ‘Understanding the Brahma Kumaris’, which was part of the Understanding Faith Series, published by Dunedin Academic Press. He is seen here at the book launch at Global Co-operation House in 2012. We greatly valued Frank’s personal warmth, understanding and friendship, and our sympathies and thoughts of peace are very much with his family at this time.
