Shivani's Early Life

Shivani Verma was born in Pune on May 31, 1972. She had a profound love for science and was a bright student. After school, she chose to study software engineering at Pune University in Pune, India. During this time, somewhere in 1994, her mother was in contact with a local RajYoga center of Brahma Kumaris. After college, she got married to Vishal Verma with whom she started a software business that ran till 2004. Before the end of college, however, Shivani was attending a local BK centre and was connected to the Brahma Kumaris. After receiving the message of God, she chose to live with complete celibacy with her husband but did not break the marriage. This is exactly what she teaches in her lectures.

Journey with BKGSU

Before coming in connection with the Brahma Kumaris, Shivani struggled with anger issues and had disputes with her mother. But seeing the positive difference in the behavior and personality of her mother, after the finish of her college, Shivani decided to take the 7 days course at a regional BK centre and then started visiting there once or twice a week. Sister Shivani then learned the practice of RajYoga meditation, during which she felt a deep peace, love, and a spiritual connection with God. Gradually she realised that indeed God directly is teaching here. She would read the Murli every day without fail. Shivani used her prior knowledge of Science to understand the deeper secrets of the spiritual knowledge given by God through the Gyan Murlis. Attaining this, she also joined the mission to bring the new world (golden age). Read 'News' on this page to learn about her current services.

Going Into Details

An expansion to early life:  Shivani Verma was a university student till 1994 and then she served as a lecturer at Bhartiya Vidhyapeeth College for 3 years in Pune, India. During this, she meet Vishal Verma and got married. During this very period, her mother was a regular student at a local Brahma Kumaris centre. Shivani witnessed a remarkable change in her mother's nature. She observed that her mother became very calm, sweet, and emotionally strong. This inspired her to visit the rajyoga centre by herself. When reached, she was told about the self as a Soul (a spiritual being). The elder Sister of that centre explained about God like this: "The Supreme Soul, our spiritual father is whom we call God. We all are his beloved children... When would God come? Of course, when the world is at its lowest stage, the father has to come to uplift the entire humanity and re-establish the true dharma (religion). And that time is NOW."

Shivani, as she reveals in this interview, was convinced about the self as a soul, but had difficulty in accepting that God indeed has come and is imparting the knowledge (as Murli, which is studied at Brahma Kumaris centres)

"And the explanation that God is not a corporeal entity but an incorporeal supreme conscious energy, was convincing to me being a student of Science; although I took some time to fully understand" – says Sister Shivani, in her interview with Devang Bhatt.

She experienced the presence of God during meditation and hence decided to go on with this and further understand the knowledge. This way Sister Shivani came in contact with BKGSU (Brahma Kumaris Godly Spiritual University). Shivani also applied the knowledge of science to understand the existence of God. Realising and experiencing the self as a divine point of energy, a soul, she now deeply understood our relationship with the supreme soul, who is our spiritual father. This way she progressed in this path day by day. (Source: Interview)
