From Shivai Verma to Sister Shivani

Sister Shivani was born in 1972 as Shivani Verma. Her parents had a religious bend of mind and thus Shivani got a spiritual environment in her house as she grew up. Her parents would regularly visit the Brahma kumaris world spiritual university. It is a popular religious movement that started in Hyderabad.

Brahmakumaris basically means daughters of Brahma. This institute teaches meditation and how to focus on the inner soul. They believe that soul can never be bad and god resides in the soul of all humans.

Shivani would attend all the lectures and sessions of BKWSU with her parents. These sessions were very informative and interesting to her. Shivani was always a good student. She completed her electrical engineering from Pune University and she was a gold medallist. After completing her degree she worked as a lecturer in the Bharati Vidyapeeth college of Engineering located in Pune.

Once there were too many viewer queries at BKWSU and they did not have enough teachers to attend to all these queries so they allowed Shivani to answer few of these queries. This program was aired on television and thus helped a lot in ensuring more popularity for Shivani. Since then she was also called as sister Shivani or Brhmakumari Shivani.

However, as she grew up and she saw that attending BKWSU was making her mother so much stronger she decided to attend the sessions and see what impact they would have on her. At the age of twenty three she started to regularly attend the sessions of BKWSU. Sister Shivani is very humble and she accepts the fact that she is also learning and should not be treated as a Guru.

Sister Shivani had a good academic record and she was all set to make a great career in electrical engineering but she left all that and took up a life of spiritual teacher as it gave her much more satisfaction and happiness.

The teenagers are under a lot of pressure and under pressure they do things that only make them feel guiltier later. For example young girls under peer pressure take to physical relationship only to feel guilty later.

Sister Shivani tells these young girls that making love is not wrong but it should not be done under pressure. Instead they should do what they feel is right from within. Just because your friend has got into a physical relationship does not mean that you will have to get into it. Teenagers have many such problems and they find the solutions in the speech of sister Shivani.
