Shivani Verma was born in Pune on 31 May 1972. At the age of around 23, she joined Brahma Kumaris (in 1995) while her mother was in Gyaan since before her. Seeing the positive difference in behavior of her mother, Shivani decided to take the 7 days course at a centre nearby and then started visiting once or twice a week. Gradually she realised that indeed God directly is teaching here. She used the knowledge of Science to understand how God, being incorporeal play his role in the world. She also joined the mission to bring the new world (golden age). Sister Shivani is a senior Rajyoga teacher living in family life in Pune. She travels around India and outside for spiritual ceremony, lectures on stress-free living and such events organised for school, colleges, companies and hospitals.
Shivani Verma was a university student till 1994 and then she served as a lecturer at Bhartiya Vidhyapeeth college for 3 years in Pune. During this period, her mother was a regular student at Brahma Kumaris. Sister Shivani witnessed a remarkable change in her mother's nature, she became very calm, sweet and emotionally strong. This all inspired Shivani to visit the nearby centre once. Shivani, when reached was told about God's incarnation and Self-awareness as a Soul (a spiritual being). She felt truth in Self as the Soul, but doubted if God really has come. The elder Sister at the centre asked her a question: 'When should God come? Of course when the world is at its lowest stage, God has to come to uplift the whole humanity and re-establish the true dharma (religion). Sister Shivani took 7 days RajYog course from that centre after understanding this.
‘’And the explanation that God is not a corporeal entity and is incorporeal supreme energy was convincing to me being a student of Science’’ – 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 Brahma Kumaris Godly Spiritual University. Shivani behen (sister) also applied the science to understand the existence and task of God. As realising the self as a Soul, she deeply understood its relationship with the supreme soul who is the God. This way she progressed in this path day by day. Do watch the interviews for acknowledgement.
