Bcoz for me, baba is everything & I want a Bk lifestyle.... I tried a lot but not able to convince them... Now a days they are not allowed me to go outside the home....

For: Brahma Kumari Harshita (and Everyone reading, who has similar situation in life)
Your letter is received. You are in Gyaan since 6 years. You showed your wish to surrender fully in Yagya. Now listen this.
You already are a surrendered soul. As you follow the shrimat, the one who follows the shrimat are surrendered. Is it possible to follow the shrimat 100% while staying with loukik family and fulfiling loukik responsibility?
Yes. Definitely. There are many examples of this. Most of baba's children stay at home and study and also do a good service. I am writing this. I also live with loukik family and do all these services. So can you not?
If you find it hard to do Purusharth while staying at your loukik home, then is it a weakness or strength of soul? Who is better?
1. One who does service at centre
2. One who does service while staying at home (with balance in both - loukik and aloukik)
Who will be better?
What does shrimat say? Shrimat says: Become pure and take the Gyaan while staying at your place.
Freedom is given to all - some are comfortable to stay at home and follow 100% shrimat & some are unable to do this and hence they prefer staying at a centre.
One more thing to know - if you stay at centre, then your responsibility increases - because you are now eating from baba's Bhandara and stay at baba's home. So you MUST never go against the shrimat or against values of Brahman jeevan . Your life then only is for Purusharth and Service.
If you can do this, then you are free to join the ashram. Baba gives permission. Yet shrimat is given for balance of Loukik and Aloukik. Listen this audio: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1O1emkO2aZrA5YVe4VxTxiOLq91P44nBT/view?usp=sharing
