One development in modern Hinduism that is related to the God Brahmā, albeit indirectly, is represented by the rise of the Brahma Kumārī movement. Widely considered a Hindu movement, the Brahma Kumārī movement traces its origins to Dada Lekhraj (1876–1969), a lifelong vegetarian and teetotaller who had a series of revelations warning him about the imminent end of the world. This movement is also associated with Brahmā owing to its millenarian nature. Millenarian movements are familiar in Hinduism, with the Kalkī avatāra itself representing one form of it. It is easy to see why Brahmā, as the creator of a new world after its end, would play an important role in the Brahma Kumārī movement. Brahmā was accused of having an incestuous relation with his daughter Sarasvatī, leading to his censure, especially by missionaries.
