Ladies Study Group proudly hosted globally renowned spiritual motivator and mentor, Sister Brahmakumari Shivani, who has touched the lives of millions to achieve spiritual transformation, at the serene lawns of Hyatt Regency. Sister BK Shivani, in an exclusive conversation with the members of LSG, being so candid, transparent and most importantly engaging with the audience, delivered a nuanced talk.
Sister Shivani laid emphasis on strengthening the bond of relationships by careful introspection and a sustained intellectual engagement and what better way to do that than to let go of the ‘Ego’. In order to let go of ‘Ego’, we must be devoid of comparison, heal the mind and thereby healing our inner self. Competition and comparison are egoistic behaviour, stressing on the ‘I’. Comparisons it is said are odious. And yet this is the criterion we use to judge every aspect of our lives. We keep in mind a frame of reference for everything-happiness, success, peace, pleasure, pain, accolades and yes, even love. The mind had an inbuilt calculator. Our comparative canvas increases manifold with social media. She stressed to inculcate the sanskar of acceptance and appreciation. “To heal any relationship, we must clean our minds, release the past and perfect our perception,” she stated.
Sister Shivani professed there should be unconditional love for family in order to radiate positive vibration, called ‘blessings’. Positive vibrations i.e. blessings can help family members bypass difficult times. She suggested that cooking for family members is the best way to connect with them, thereby emitting positive vibration. She preached that relationship with ‘you’ is the only criterion, in order to enhance the soul, which has a forward journey. It is a self-choice that every thought one creates is pure and devoid of jealousy and criticism. Sister Shivani asked the packed audience to give a gift to themselves by cleaning their minds, releasing the past and thereby developing positive healthy relationships.
“The best relationship is one in which yesterday’s fight doesn’t stop today’s communication”, said Sister Shivani.
Sister Shivani left the audience mesmerized not only by her divine radiating presence but also by her talk, as one knows that she’s not coming from a space of pretense or artifice. If she hankers for anything, it’s peace of mind, healthy relationships & that’s what floats her boat!
