Nirwair bhai's Early Life

B.K Nirwair was born on 20 November 1938 in Punjab, India. He belonged to a good cultured and religious Hindu family. He used to read writings of Swami Vivekananda and Swami Ramtirath while in the high school. This brought in him good values and a desire to know the spiritual truth. He grew up in Punjab, passed his school life smoothly, and after the independance of India, he passed college degree and then served in the Indian Navy for nine years, where he got trained as an Electronics Engineer. He had been a true seeker of truth since his early adulthood, and had read the Bhagavad Gita (prime scripture of Bharat) many times.

First Contact with BrahmaKumaris

It was in the year 1959, when Nirwair bhai was in his home state Punjab and Mateshwari ji (Mamma Saraswati) came to visit the area where a BrahmaKumari centre was recently opened. Nirwair bhai, being a spiritual seeker went to attend mamma's class.

Here is how he described his first experience with Mamma:

"I came to know that a Brahma Kumari center was recently opened nearby my residence; and Mateshwari ji, who was the chief of Brahma Kumaris have come to visit. I thought, let me go and see what they teach, so I went in during the evening class. When I entered the centre's classroom, I saw Mamma, whom I never meet before was sitting in a Yogi position and as soon as I saw her divine face, I instantly felt deep peace and love within me. I stood still for a minute. Then mamma called me, and I went near and sat down in the first row. There were many people in the classroom but I somehow did not and could not notice them. Mamma began the evening class... I dont exactly remember the words, but it was a divine experience listening to mamma speaking the knowledge flawlessly and so clear. After the class, mamma called me and gave me drishti and gave me toli. I got to have a short conversation with Mamma before we had to leave.."

"After this, Nirwair bhai continues; I took the RajYoga course (7 days course) and received the knowledge of Soul, the Supreme soul, World drama, cycle, and RajYog. Hence to say, it was mamma through whom I came in Gyan"; says Nirwair bhai in his interview."

In this way BK Nirwair came in contact with the Yagya (BKWSU) when he was 21 years old, and later he surrendered in the Yagya in 1963 and progressed ahead in the mentorship of Prajapita Brahma and Saraswati Mamma, who are lovingly called "Mama-Baba".

In 1982, he represented the University at the Second Special Session on Disarmament (SSOD) held at the United Nations HQ, where he officially met the U.N.Secretary General Javier Perez De Cuellar and other dignitaries.
