Accommodation at Mount Abu (madhuban) - requirements & procedure - How can you stay at the main centre (ashram) of Brahma Kumaris Godly Spiritual University? Know everything in details on this article post.
Madhuban is the place of Godly experiences. This is the place where our long lost and now found spiritual father (Shiv Baba) played a part of speaking the knowledge (Murli) through the corporeal medium of Prajapita Brahma. Later, the Avyakt Murlis were also spoken here through medium of Dadi Gulzar.

➔ Mount Abu is a Karmabhumi (place of performing great karma/deeds) of the Supreme being. In ancient texts also, much is written about Mount Abu, located in the Arravali mountain ranges. In the Sakar days (till 1969), much of the places where rocks and jungle. But now it has been transformed into residence and beautiful gardens. The below is a picture of Tapasya Dham, located in Shantivan, Mount Abu (where Brahman souls around the world gathers for deep meditation (Yog / penance).
As you may know, the Madhuban (forest of honey) is the central place for all brahmins (BKs), the Tapasya bhumi (place of penance) and it is the highest hermitage (ashram). Many of us, since we came in Gyaan (since our spiritual birth) have come and visited Mount Abu. But for those who just came (new students), and wish to know the direction or procedure to come visit OR stay in madhuban for a short time or to surrender in yagya (permanent), here are the following points to be noted:
Requirements for a Stort Stay
If you only wish to come for a short visit, it is straight forward. You may visit any day of the year with or without family. All you need to do is "book a room" at our FREE accommodation campus. Note: You can book a room directly via phone call, or through a nearby local BK centre.
➥If you do not book a room at our campus, you can stay at a nearby hotel and travel to madhuban centre.
➥Before you visit madhuban, we highly recommend you to take our 7 days RajYoga course. We have Online Course system if you cannot visit a BK centre.
➥Even without taking course, you may come for a spiritual retreat experience. Please read the procedure carefully.
There are three ways you can visit mount abu center - for Rajyog course, for a Spiritual seminar/retreat, with the turn at specific dates (during Avyakt Milan programs/days) OR at your own day and time with your family as a short visit.
1. With regional turns (state wise)
There are different turns in which all the states of India are covered. Turn by turn, the BK brother and sisters of particular states are welcomed to stay in madhuban for 1 week. This happens for the entire year during the dates of Avyakt Milan (2022-23)
2. For course and Seminar
At madhuban, we occasional arrange for 7 days course (Pradarshani) and spiritual seminars for doctors, engineers, kids, schools and college teachers and those who are invited are given free stay and satvik (pure & natural) food. For this, there are no requirements.
However the spiritual museum in Pandav Bhawan is always open to all for the 7 days course.
3. Individual and with family
If someone wish to come on their own date, they can also come. They need a letter written by their regional centre (with their name and details) saying that the brother or sister is a BK (in Gyan) since this many months or years, and have been living with purity and is regular in attending the Murli classes held at that centre.
NOTE: You will require this letter if you wish to stay in madhuban as an individual.
If you could not arrange for such a letter, still you can enter the Mount Abu campus as a visitor. For more information, please reach the information desk (reception) at Pandav Bhawan.

2. Being a Godly student, you would be listening or reading the murli regularly via any means (going to a local centre, via internet, PMTV, etc.). Murli of beloved Supreme father (Shiv baba) is food for the soul that is the source of spiritual energy and inspirations for Purusharth (self upliftment) and world service. (Refer source: What is Murli?)
3. You took a vow of purity in this last birth. Purity is our main subject and is the MUST requirement of anyone who wishes to stay in Madhuban for long time or to Surrender in yagya permanent. It is the main quality of a brahman soul, hence if you wish to stay in Madhuban (garden of God), then you must be living a life with complete celibacy in terms of the shrimat given by Shiv baba to us.
✪ All above are requirements to describe yourself as a godly student. You are welcome to come and experience a 'divine' atmosphere which connects one to his inner self.
Here is the Surrender Letter (Samarpan Patra) you will have to accept and fill, and sign. Then you can keep the letter safe with yourself.
