As Brahmakumari Shivani enters the room in a pristine white saree with a serene smile on her face, one can feel an instant sense of peace.
She has been practising the ancient technique of Rajayoga under the tutelage of Prajapita Brahmakumaris Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya for the last 12 years. Her programme 'Awakening with Brahmakumaris' on Aastha channel has garnered her a large following across the globe. The show delves on the art of meditation and spiritual living. A gold medallist in the field of electronic engineering from Pune University, she also runs her own software company and has worked as a lecturer at the Bharati Vidyapeeth College of Engineering for two years.
In Chandigarh for a three-day programme, Sister Shivani revealed that she became fascinated with Brahmakumaris as a child when her parents used to take her for their programmes. "It was almost natural that I joined the group. I never really had to think about it." Addressing delegates in fluent Hindi and English, she said she was aware of the problems and issues currently faced by people at personal, national and international levels.
When quizzed about her education and work, she said she runs a software company and finds her experiences as a student helpful while dealing with people. "Studying engineering has taught me to think logically. Education is always helpful," she says with a smile as she hurries off to prepare for another round of spiritual discussion.
