Mount Abu / Abu Road, July 19, 2017: The month of Shravan (Holiest Month in the Hindu Calendar) is associated to the Bholanath God Father Shiva. It is taken for granted that the Supreme Soul Shiva gets delighted if one heartily worships Him. What is better than the act of accepting as one’s bridegroom in the month of Shravan? This act happened when 300 young B K sisters from various parts of India handed over the strings of their life to God Shiva and surrendered themselves to the Brahma Kumaris Institution.
In this occasion, their parents and relatives also were present. Addressing thousands of participants in this occasion, Dadi Ratan Mohini, Joint Chief of the Brahma Kumaris, said, ”the life in this birth is the best of the lives in all other births. One in whose life God Himself resides, becomes free from all evils. It is great virtue to surrender one’s life in order in order to do Godly services with body, mind and wealth”.
B K Munni, Program Manager, Brahma Kumaris, addressed the surrendered sisters, saying, “Be good and great by inculcating the divine values in life and also be the source of inspiration for others”.
B K Nirwair, General Secretary, Brahma Kumaris, said,” our sisters have showed that if women wish they can change the world, eradicate any dogmatic rites and evil tendencies. These will be successful in changing the society by doing their positive self- transformation”.
B K Brijmohan, Addl. Secretary, B K Mrutyunjay, Executive Secretary, B K Bhupal, Manager of Shantivan, B K Amirchand along with many others expressed their thoughts on the occasion.
What is Surrender?
Those sisters get surrendered, who, after coming in contact with the Brahma Kumaris Institution, observe completely all rules and regulations and practice Rajyoga meditation as trainees. In this act of their surrender ceremony, all rites of divine marriage are observed.
After their surrender, the sisters go to different B K Centres spread throughout the country. By staying there they improve their lives and engage themselves in the service of others. The B K Institution take their full responsibilities.
During the ceremony, they were decorated with yellow head-dresses and were welcomed with the music of band party. They were also made to take the oath to stick to their aims and objectives and to perform the best actions, so that they can be successful in achieving their aims.
