In her speech, BK Sister Shivani explained that empowerment means to empower myself. Don’t expect happiness will come from outside of you; you need to create it and nurture it.
Sister Shivani said “With our own inner change we can improve the quality of our lives and those around us. Tomorrow, wake up with the thought: “I’m powerful, calm, stable, I am the master of my life. I have changed from a slave to be the master of my life and destiny.”
She further said “I will only be able to take care of others if I learn to take care of myself first. My mental and emotional stage is my priority. The natural stage of my mind is peace, even if there is disturbance around me. But to achieve that stage of mind I need to practice making my mind peaceful and stable every day and in every situation.”
