Dear Brother, Omshanti. With reference to your doubt about Shiv and ShivBaba, I am reproducing below an extract from the Murli contained in VCD*., which was circulated among the PBKs. The Murli was narrated by Father Shiv through the medium of Shankar (Baba Veerendra Dev Dixit). The English version produced below is only a draft translation of the original Murli in Hindi. I hope this would clear your doubt.
With regards,

"The children did not give respect to the Vani of knowledge narrated by Supreme Soul, the narrator of knowledge. And they started looking at the face of Brahma Baba. Their intellect started getting attracted to the face and facial expressions (chehra-mohra) of Brahma Baba. They liked becoming womb-born (kukhvanshaavali) Brahmins, but they could not become mouth-born (mukhvanshavali). Why could they not become? It is because they did not pay attention to the Vani that emerged from the mouth. And even here if such a thing keeps happening in the Advance Party that the Vani that emerges from the mouth, which is called Murli; love for Murli means love for murlidhar (in literal sense it means the beholder of flute; here it means the one, who narrates Murli). And if there is no love for Murli, then there is no love for Murlidhar. So here too, if such a thing goes on that - children are very much attached to the Chariot in which Shiv enters in a final form (mukarrar roop). It means that there is no attachment for Shiv; there is attachment for shav (the corpse). Shiv and shav. If Shiv does not enter into him, then what is he? He is shav (a corpse). If Shiv has entered into him then he is ShivBaba.... (Someone said something) Hm, Hm? (When Shiv has entered, then he is Baba, isn’t it?) Yes, yes. Baba, Baba. There are a lot of Babas in the world, but this is ShivBaba. He is ShivBaba because Shiv has entered into the corporeal body. So the entire glory is attributable to whom? It is ShivBaba’s glory, isn’t it? It is not just the glory of Baba. It is neither the glory of Brahma Baba, nor is it the glory of the final Chariot in whom He enters. The final Chariot will get the glory when he gets revealed before the world in the form of Narayan after becoming perfect (sampoorna). Then you can call him – ShivBaba, for whom it has been said that there is nothing permanent (sadaa kaayam) in this world. It is ShivBaba alone who is permanent. So it is the ShivBaba, who attains the complete stage equal to Father; who attains the incorporeal (niraakaari), egoless (nirvikaari), viceless (nirvikaari) stage and after achieving that stage, he should accomplish the task."

Prashna 37:
Satyug Aadi may jansankhya: 9,16,108
Satyug Ant may jansankhya: 2 crores
Atah 1250 varsh may jansankhya vriddhi hai 2crores/9,16,108 = 22 guna

Treta Aadi may jansankhya: 2 crores
Treta Ant may jansankhya: 10 crores
Atah 1250 varsh may jansankhya vriddhi hai 10/2 = 5 times.

Jab Satyug ki tulana may Treta may janmon ki sankhya adhik hai toh Satyug ki tulana may Treta may jansankhya vriddhi adhik kyun hai?

Uttar: Satyug may ek hi raj family hoti hai . baaki sab praja hoti hai . Raj family may sirf ek bachha , ek bachhi hoti hai . baaki praja varg me numberwaar paidaish badhti jati hai . Isiliye satya yug may praja ki sankhya jyada badhti hai . agar aisey na hota to abadi badhti nehi hoti , 9 lakh hi rah jaati .
Tretya yug may anek raja hotay hain , lekin sab ek raja kay control may hotay hain. Rajfamily jyada honay kay kaaran wahan population kam badhti hai.


Question No.37:
Satyug Beginning------ Population: 9,16,108
Satyug End --------------Population: 2 crores
Therefore population growth over 1250 years is 2crores/9,16,108 = 22 times
Treta Start ------Population: 2 crores
Treta End -------Population: 10 crores
Therefore population growth over 1250 years is 10/2 = 5 times.
Why is population growth in treta less, when we have more births in Tretayug compared to Satyug and the population base is more in Tretayug compared to Satyug?

Answer: There is only one royal family in the Golden Age. Rest are the subjects. In the royal family there is only one male and one female child. As for the subjects, the number of children increases numberwise. That is why the number of subjects (praja) increases more in the Golden Age. Had it not been so, then how would the population have increased, it would have remained static at 9 lakhs.
In the Silver Age there are many kings, but all of them are under the control of one King. Because the royal family is more, the rate of increase of population is lesser there.

Omshanti. Today onwards I would be producing some questions and answers that have been prepared by PBKs but have been approved by Baba. Since the the Hindi version of the same in Roman script is not available, only the English version of the Q&A is being reproduced.

Q.No.38. What is the relationship between Adhyatmik Ishwariya Vishwavidyalaya and Brahmakumari Vidyalaya?

Ans: Adhyatmik Ishwariya Vishwavidyalaya (AIVV) is a spiritual family, whose aim is to establish a new world filled with the feeling of ‘Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam’ through Godly knowledge and RajYoga. The establishment of AIVV is linked to the Brahma Kumaris Institution.

The founder of the Brahma Kumaris Institution Dada Lekhraj had many kinds of divine visions in 1936-37, but he could not understand their meanings. When he could not get the solutions from many scholars, preceptors etc., he got the solution of these divine visions from his experienced, aged partner at Calcutta when the incorporeal Supreme Father Shiva Himself entered into the body of the partner and explained the meaning of the divine visions to a senior mother and a younger mother present there. The senior mother then explained the same to Dada Lekhraj. Later this Godly family (Om Mandali) shifted to Sindh, Pakistan, where some years later the partner and the above mentioned mothers expired. In this manner, the responsibility of the entire Godly family fell on the shoulders of Dada Lekhraj. The Om Mandali was renamed Brahma Kumari Ishwariya Vishwavidyalaya. The Supreme Father Supreme Soul Shiva continuously narrated Godly knowledge through the founder of Brahmakumari Institution, Dada Lekhraj (alias Brahma) in the mornings and evenings from 1951 to 1969, which is published in the form of ‘Gyan Murlis’. Brahma Kumaris Institution believes that after the demise of Dada Lekhraj in 1969, the incorporeal Supreme Father Shiva has returned to his abode Paramdham (the Soul World) and enters into the body of Dadi Gulzar on pre-determined dates every year and narrates knowledge, which is published by the Brahmkumaris Institution as ‘Avyakt Vanis’.
But many Brahma Kumar-Kumaris also believe that the incorporeal Supreme Father Shiva must be present in some human body in this land of India only, as per the version of Baba in the Avyakt Vani dated 30.6.74 published from Mt. Abu as a collection of Avyakt Vanis for that year, First Edition, Page No. 84 and the Second Edition, Page No.244,


“The promise of Father to the Brahmin children that we shall leave together, die together and live together, i.e end the role together, the contract of world transformation, which Father Brahma has taken up along with the children, can it be left unfinished? Can the foundation that is instrumental in the task of establishment leave in the middle of that task?... The soul (of Father Ram) that is instrumental in setting an example of actions certainly gives company and extends cooperation till the end.”

In such a circumstance, when the incorporeal Supreme Father Shiva started giving the unique, deep meanings of the above mentioned Gyan Murlis, Avyakt Vanis and the four meaningful pictures (published by the Brahma Kumaris Institution) through Baba Veerendra Deo Dixit in 1976, which could be tallied with the scriptures of all the religions, then first of all some members (mainly mothers) of the Brahmakumaris Institution living in Delhi recognized that incorporeal Supreme Father Shiva, who had entered into that ordinary corporeal form and in this manner this Godly family was established. This spiritual family (called Adhyatmik Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalay) was established in the year 1982-1983 in the ancestral house of Baba Veerendra Deo Dixit situated in his ancestral village Kampila, District Farrukhabad, Uttar Pradesh. The basis for naming this spiritual family as Adhyatmik Ishwariya Vishwavidyalaya (Spiritual Godly World University) is the following revised Murli narrated by Shiva through Dada Lekhraj (alias Brahma):-

“God Father is called spiritual, knowledgeful. So you will write the name Spiritual University. Nobody will raise and objection. Then, you will remove those words (Prajapita Brahmakumari) and write this name ‘Spiritual University’. Try and see, write ‘God Fatherly University.’ This is their aim object. Then day by day, there will be changes in your museum and pictures etc. also. Then it will have to be written at all the centres-Spiritual God Fatherly University.”- Murli dated 20.3.74 and 19.2.2000

90/95 % students of the Brahmakumari Vidyalaya come to the AIVV after getting dissatisfied with them and as they could not get solutions to their questions and they become the regular students of AIVV after becoming satisfied. The clarification of the Vani (Godly versions) originally narrated in the Brahma Kumari Vidyalaya is given at AIVV. The seekers of knowledge find it rational. The intellectual students of Brahma Kumari Vidyalaya are continuously leaving it and joining AIVV, which is creating rancour in the minds of the administrators of Brahma Kumari Vidyalaya and they are trying to create obstacles in the activities of AIVV. The seekers of knowledge, who visit AIVV, are strictly disallowed from entering Brahma Kumari Vidyalaya. While the same original versions of Baba, i.e. Murlis and Avyakt Vanis are narrated in both the Vidyalayas, there is a difference of sky and earth in the clarification of the same.

Q.No.39. What is the difference between AIVV and Brahma Kumari Vidyalaya?

Ans: The differences between AIVV and Brahma Kumari Vidyalaya are as follows:
? BK’s (Brahmakumaris) do not accept the scriptures.

Adhyatmik Vidyalaya accepts the scriptures on the basis of Godly versions.

? Although BK’s say that Krishna is not the God of Gita, from all practical angles, they consider the forthcoming new world’s Krishna alias soul of Brahma (Dada Lekhraj) as the only corporeal God of Gita (the Murlis, i.e. flute of knowledge)

Adhyakmik Vidyalaya considers Shiv-Shankar, who possesses an incorporeal stage to be the God of Gita in a practical form. It does not consider the corporeal form of Krishna alias Brahma, i.e. Dada Lekhraj to be the God of Gita.

? BK’s publish the corporeal pictures of Brahma, Vishnu and Shankar but give recognition only to the corporeal form of Brahma. They do not consider Vishnu and Shankar to belong to this world, while the scriptures do not mention the temples, idols or worship of Brahma. BKs say that Shiva and Shankar are separate, but they do not say/ explain why Shiva and Shankar have been mixed up in the scriptures? Why has Shiva not been mixed up with Brahma or Vishnu and why Shankar only is called Mahadev (greatest deity)?

Adhyatmik Vidalaya has correct answers for the above questions and the clarification for the corporeal practical part of the above three deities.

? BK’s consider only Brahma (Brahm+ma) i.e. elder mother to be the corporeal form of God and call themselves only Brahma Kumar-Kumaries (i.e. children of Brahma).

Adhyatmik Vidyalaya believes in both Mother and Father (Prajapita+Brahma=Adam+Eve) in the corporeal form.

? BK’s advertise knowledge and Yoga through projector shows, exhibitions, public programmes, lectures, conference, fairs, rath-yatras (Chariot march), literature created by human beings, etc.

Adhyatmik Vidyalaya does not believe in any kind of advertisement.

? BK’s consider Godly inheritance of Mukti (Salvation) and Jeevanmukti (true Salvation while living in the body) after death to be the objective of the life.

Adhyatmik Vidyalaya enables us to make efforts for improving our status in this world as well as that world, i.e. teaches The Knowledge of getting transformed from a man to Narayan and from a woman to Lakshmi in this birth itself, which is famous in Gita.

? BK’s consider themselves great in constructing palaces and buildings (in most of the big cities and towns) consuming 36 varieties of dishes (on many special occasions) and wearing only white dresses.

Adhyatmik Vidyalaya considers simplicity in living, eating and dressing to be the real greatness.

? It is a common feature for the BKs to seek donations and increase personal grandeur and respect.

Adhyatmik Vidyalaya considers that it is better to die than to seek any donation.

? BK’s only say that we are establishing one religion, one kingdom, one race, but their behavior is just opposite to that objective; because for establishment of oneness, that one corporeal form should be present practically, which is no more in existence as per B.Ks; as such they become follower of many.

Members of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya accept only the highest direction of only one God who has come practically and also try to make efforts to follow the Godly inculcations, rules and regulations.

? The dedicated (surrendered) BKs generally lead their life like the monks by building hermitages.

The dedicated or non dedicated members of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya lead a household life because in Murlis ShivBaba has said that He teaches RajYoga to the householders while leading a household life himself; the reminder of which, i.e. Gita also mentions that RajYoga is taught to householder Pandavas only, and not to the monks (like Bheeshma, Dronacharya, Kripacharya etc.)

Q. No.40. What are the aims and objectives of AIVV and what are its activities?

Ans. The aims and objectives of Adhyatmik Ishwariya Vishwavidyalaya are as follows:
a. Transforming the world in general and India in particular from hell to heaven, where the religio-political power will be in one hand, and where there will be one religion, one kingdom, one language and one race.
b. Guiding each individual in getting transformed from a man to Narayan and from a woman to Lakshmi through Godly knowledge, Easy RajYoga, Inculcation of virtues and Spiritual Service.
c. Re-establishment of the almost extinct Aadi Sanatan Devi Devata Dharma (the ancient deity religion) by imparting The Knowledge of the soul, Supreme Soul and the beginning, middle & end of the human world drama cycle to the souls of all the religions.
d. Removing diversity, irreligiousness, casteism, enmity, vices, poverty, corruption, etc. through Godly knowledge and RajYoga. World transformation through self transformation. Simple living and high thinking.
e. Making every human being complete in all the virtues, completely soul conscious, completely viceless, highest among all human beings in following the code of conduct and double non-violent (one who does not indulge either in the violence due to anger or the violence of sex-lust) without the prejudice of religion, caste, language, country, colour or financial position.
f. Publicising in the entire world the clarification of Godly knowledge and the deep secrets of Gyan Muralis and Avyakt Vanis published by the Brahmakumari Organization, which is being given by the Supreme Father Shiva through the Spiritual Father Baba Veerendra Deo Dixit, so as to cause world transformation and integration of the entire world into a spiritual family.

The activities of Adhyatmik Ishwariya Vishwavidyalaya are as follows:
1. Any new person coming to any Ashram or Gita pathshala of AIVV is first of all given seven days’ basic or primary knowledge and taught the method of RajYoga. After this he is explained the above mentioned Gyan Muralis and Avyakt Vanis. Later he is given the advance or deep knowledge of the above mentioned Murlis, Avyakt Vanis and the seven days course, which is being imparted by the Supreme Father Supreme Soul Shiva and is available in the form of audio, video cassettes, CDs, VCD*, DVDs or books. After the deep study of Godly knowledge, practice of RajYoga and inculcation of divine virtues, if he/she develops full faith on the corporeal role of the incorporeal Supreme Father Shiva going on presently, then he/she is given a voluntary option of giving an affidavit to this effect, in which inter-alia he/she has to give an undertaking that he will practice purity of thoughts, speech and actions throughout his life. After this, he is given a seven days intense spiritual training, which is called RajYoga Bhatti at the ancestral house of the Spiritual Father of AIVV situated at Village Kampila, District Farrukhabad, Uttar Pradesh. On the successful completion of the training the person becomes a regular member of the AIVV family, who can participate in all the normal activities/ Godly services of AIVV. An extract of Godly version in this regard is as follows:-


“The course of seven days’ bhatti is very strict. One should not remember anyone. One cannot write letters to anyone. This bhatti had been started for you. Everyone cannot be allowed to stay here. That is why it is said that you should stay at your home and practice.”- Murli dated 22.10.89.

2. Any Brahma Kumar or Brahma Kumari coming to any Ashram or Gita pathshala of AIVV must also pass through the same procedure. Since they have already obtained basic knowledge at the Brahma Kumari Ashrams, they are directly given the Advanced Knowledge, and later imparted the seven days intense training (Rajyog Bhatti).
3. The above basic and Advance Course/training is given free of cost and the arrangement of meals and stay is also free of cost.
4. The members of AIVV give the Godly message to the other people, especially the Brahmakumar-kumaris on the basis of their own experience and achievements and perform world service with their mind, body and wealth. The aim of AIVV is to cause world transformation through self transformation.
5. Generally only mothers/spinsters can dedicate their lives for Godly service in a legal way. Because females are considered to be weak when compared to men, they need asylum for the protection of their purity. With the prior permission of the spiritual Mother and Father, some Brothers can also dedicate their Godly service for certain (outdoor) activities of the AIVV based on the specialities of their character. The members of AIVV living at the Spiritual Centres / Gita Pathshalas listen to the Godly knowledge and practice RajYoga everyday and the dedicated mothers, spinsters impart the training of Godly knowledge to the new seekers of knowledge. All the tasks of the Ashram are performed with the own expenditure and labour of the members in the remembrance of God.

Q.No. 41. What are the rules of Adhyatmik Ishwariya Vishwavidyalaya?
Ans. The following rules have been framed on the basis of the Gyan Muralis and Avyakt Vanis for the character building of the members and the smooth running of AIVV, which are expected to be followed by the members:
1. Inculcation of purity in thoughts, speech and actions and renunciation of vices like sex-lust, anger, greed, attachment and ego which are born from body consciousness.
2. Eating pure and vegetarian food cooked in the remembrance of God and in soul consciousness. The consumption of wine, tobacco, betel leaves, and drugs etc. which make the mind and body impure is prohibited.
3. Practice of meditation at Amrit Vela (between 2 A.M. to 4 A.M.), connecting oneself with the Supreme Power Supreme Father in His remembrance leading to experience peace, pleasure and powers by self and others and then listening to the Godly knowledge regularly after bathing etc. Any person can inculcate divine virtues through this practice and bring about world transformation through self transformation.
4. Leading a life of simplicity, but high moral standards. The eating, living, clothing etc. should be simple but the behaviour should be great.
5. At AIVV there is no seeking of cash or kind from any member directly or indirectly; because God’s Shrimat (direction) is that it is better to die rather than to beg. That is why there is no donation box at AIVV. We believe that whatever is obtained easily is like milk, whatever is obtained on seeking is like water and whatever is snatched from someone is like blood. No cash or kind will be sought from the seekers of knowledge coming to the Geetapathshalas coming for the practice of RajYoga and listening to knowledge. A Godly version in this regard is as follows:-

“You say that we do everything for ourselves with our own expenditure. How can we do anything with others’ expenditure? That is why Baba always says-it is better to die than beg. Whatever is obtained easily is equal to milk, whatever is obtained upon asking is equal to water.” Murli dated 7.5.95, page 3 & 4
6. The male members of AIVV can perform the service of giving the message of knowledge being given by Supreme Father Shiva to others and bring them to the Headquarters, Spiritual Centres and Gita Pathshalas of AIVV. The spinsters or mothers staying there will perform the service of giving the basic or advance Godly knowledge to the new seekers of knowledge. A Godly version in this regard is as follows:-
• “You devis only become particularly instrumental in giving The Knowledge. Although Brothers also explain in the exhibitions etc., but mostly you mothers only show the way by becoming Brahmani (teacher). That is why Devis (female deities) are more famous.” Murli dated 14.10.68, page3
7. Publicity of the Godly knowledge with minimum expenditure. Invaluable money is not spent by the AIVV in organizing any public programme. Neither our spiritual mother-father, nor the members of AIVV accept any kind of gift, money or public award from any Government or Private Body.
8. AIVV shall not perform any task or business for the sake of earning financial profit. The aim of any service shall be welfare of the world only.

Q.No.42. The pictures of the founder of Brahmakumari Vidyalaya Dada Lekhraj and Mama Saraswati and other Dadis are displayed in the Brahmakumari Vidyalaya. Such pictures are not visible in Adhyatmik Vidyalaya. What are the reasons for that?

Ans. The Shrimat given by God Shiva forbids the exhibition of photos of Dada Lekhraj (alias Brahma) or any other human being because the physical body made up of five earthly elements is perishable. That is why picture of any human being is not displayed in AIVV. Only the pictures containing knowledge and prepared on the basis of the Shrimat of Supreme Father Shiva are displayed, which contain The Knowledge of the soul, Supreme Soul, and the beginning, middle and end of the human world drama cycle. But after the demise of Dada Lekhraj (alias Brahma) photos of Dada Lekhraj and Saraswati can be seen in the Brahma Kumari ashrams and homes of Brahma Kumar-Kumaris worldwide.

Now, instead of the photographs of Brahma and Saraswati the photos of the current Administrators of Brahma Kumaris have started appearing on the invitation cards, which is a direct violation of Shrimat. Actually, according to Supreme Father Shiva, remembering incorporeal Supreme Father through the living permanent corporeal Chariot is the right method of Raj Yoga, just as we observe the diamond kept in a golden jewel box. But in the Ashrams of Brahma Kumaris, we are taught to remember only the formless point of light, whereas the corporeal part being played by Shiv Shankar Bholeynath is being ignored. God Shiva says,

"You don't keep even His (Brahma's) photo. Don't keep photos of embodied persons (Mamma-Baba, Dadi, Didi, etc.)." (Murli 10.06.71 pg.1)
"Baba explains that only the ignorant followers insist on acquiring the photos ... This body is nothing but soil. Why should we see his (Brahma's) photo? The traditions of Bhakti Marg (path of worship) do not exist in the Gyan Marg (path of knowledge)." (Murli 13.11.70, pg 2)

Q.No.43. There is a competition among all the religions including Brahmakumari Vidyalaya in collecting money and property. As per your literature all the Spiritual Centres and Gita Pathshalas of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya, except the Spiritual Centres at Delhi/ Kampil are being run in the houses of its members only. What are the reasons behind Adhyatmik Vidyalaya not collecting money and property?

Ans: Supreme Father Shiva has directed in the Murlis that there is no need to construct buildings except the main spiritual service centre. That is why, except the Spiritual Service Centres of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya at Delhi/ Kampil, where Prajapita Brahmakumar-kumaris from all over the world come for spiritual training, buildings have not been constructed for Adhyatmik Vidyalaya anywhere else. In respect of Brahmakumari Vidyalaya the direction of Supreme Father Shiva is that there is no need for constructing buildings for the service centers of Brahma Kumaris except at Mount Abu, which is the Headquarters of Brahma Kumaris. Continue to hire accommodation on rent for spreading the Divine Message because there is no meaning in acquiring property in this old world which is going to be destroyed.

It has been continuously and publicly announced and is still being declared by the Brahma Kumari Institution that this old world is going to be destroyed and a new deity world is going to be established very soon. They also tell the world that the incorporeal Supreme Father Shiva had chosen Dada Lekhraj alias Brahma of Hyderabad, Sindh in 1936-37. But, after the demise of Dada Lekhraj in 1969 there is a huge difference between the words and deeds of Brahmakumari Institution. After 1969, large immovable properties are being acquired by the Brahmakumaris worldwide due to lack of faith in the proclamation of world transformation by the Supreme Soul. After seeing these properties of the Brahma Kumaris, no person will believe that this Kaliyugi (Iron-Aged) world is going to be destroyed.

Q.No.44. Donation boxes can be seen at Brahmakumari Vidyalayas or other religious places to receive contributions from their followers. Such donation boxes are not visible in the Spiritual Centres or Gita Pathshalas of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya. What are the reasons for it?

Ans: An important Shrimat of Supreme Father Shiva is that it is better to die than to beg. That is why neither donations in cash or kind are not sought directly or indirectly from anyone at Adhyatmik Vidyalaya nor is any building construction or organisation of public programmes undertaken by collecting contributions. Its members perform world service through their voluntary, physical, mental and financial cooperation and build their luck. But in all the Ashrams of Brahma Kumaris including the Headquarters, money or other help is sought directly or indirectly in the form of donation boxes, which is an open violation of the above Shrimat of Supreme Father Shiva. Donations are openly collected from Brahmakumars or Kumaris on the pretext of pilgrimage to the Headquarters of Brahma Kumaris organisation at Mount Abu or on the pretext of some public programme. Many poor Brahmakumar-kumaris miss the visit to Mt. Abu, the Karmabhoomi (the land of actions) of God during the time of Dada Lekhraj (Brahma) or are not given due respect as they are unable to collect the fat sum of money. God Shiva says,

“Death by drowning is better than begging for the Brahmakumaris.” (Murli dated 28.02.72, pg 3).
“They keep demanding from students at the centres that they need this. Baba always says, “Do not beg”....One should not beg.” (Murli 25.01.72, pg 2)

Q. No.45. It is told in the Brahmakumari Ashram that the fruit of Bhakti (worship) is knowledge; that is why there is no need to worship God after receiving knowledge from God. But even in the Brahmakumari Ashrams Bhog (edible offerings) is offered to God and nectar (Amrit) is offered to the followers in the same way as in the path of worship. Is Bhog offered to God in a similar way in Adhyatmik Vidyalaya?

Ans: Brahma Kumaris have also received the Shrimat that offerings of food (Bhog) made to God means Bhakti cult. This practice is not necessary in the path of Spiritual Knowledge (Gyan Marg). It is only essential to cook pure, simple food & serve it to others or consume it oneself in the remembrance of God, which causes a good effect on mind and body also. That is why neither the traditions of Bhakti, bordering on blind faith are followed nor is any pomp and show done. Neither Bhog is offered to God just for show, nor contributions collected for this purpose. Neither unnecessary decoration is carried out at the Spiritual Centres of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya nor are the means of luxury collected. There is no compulsion of wearing white dresses. But in the Brahma Kumaris ashram and in their imitation, the other Brahmakumaris also make offerings of food to God in a ritualistic manner at their homes. Money/ materials are collected from the followers on the pretext of Bhog. For the outward display of mental purity white dress has been made compulsory for the Brothers and Sisters living at the Brahmakumari Ashrams, and even the householder members are encouraged to wear white dress, which is considered inauspicious in the Indian society and is also one of the hindrances in the spread of Godly knowledge. It is against the ordained principles of Brahma Kumari Ashrams to enjoy physical pleasures after marriage and to celebrate birthdays of the perishable body, etc., but in most of the Brahmakumari Ashrams food offerings (Bhog) is made to God to celebrate the marriages or birthdays of members. In reality, atma (soul) is eternal-immortal and so it should remain joyful forever, and not just on a particular day. Bhog is a mere means of fulfilling one’s taste and developing body consciousness against Godly versions.
“This offering of food (Bhog) is neither part of knowledge (Gyan) nor meditation (Yoga). There is no connection between them.” (Murli.18.07.70, pg 4)

Q.No.46. In the Brahmakumari Ashram or all other religious institutions the administrators are given various designations like Chief Administrator, Additional Administrator, Zonal Incharge, Director etc. Who are the Chief Adminstrators of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya?

Ans: Egoless God Shiva has proclaimed through Gyan Murlis that He is only an obedient servant. As long as Dada Lekhraj (alias Brahma) was alive, nobody was given any post or official designation. But after the demise of Dada Lekhraj (alias Brahma), administrators of Brahma Kumaris have assumed various titles such as Chief Administrator, Additional Administrator, Director, Zonal In charge, etc., similar to the titles assumed by the so-called human Gurus of the path of worship in India, such as, His Holiness (Param poojya), Shri, Shri, 108 Jagadguru Shankaracharya or Vaachaspati, Saraswati, etc. In reality, there is no need for Spiritual Seekers to adorn themselves with these titles. That is why no member of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya is assigned any post or designation. Only two persons are considered as spiritual mother and Father, rest of the members being their aloukik (unworldly) children. In accordance with the declaration of Supreme Father Shiva, all the Prajapita Brahmakumar-kumaris including the Spiritual Mother and Father are Khudayee Khidmathgar (Godly servants) and Ruhani Social Workers (Spiritual Social Workers).
“You have to serve like a servant. Father is also a servant, isn’t it?”– Murli Dated 11.12.01, pg.3

Q.No.47.What are the timings for obtaining knowledge and RajYoga training at Adhyatmik Vidyalaya?
Ans: According to the direction (Shrimat) of Supreme Father Shiv, Brahma Kumari Ashrams should remain open throughout the daytime for students so that they could acquire Godly knowledge. That is why visitors or seekers of knowledge or members are welcomed for acquiring Godly knowledge, practice of RajYoga or Godly service from 6 A.M. to 8 P.M. at all the Spiritual Centres of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya. But Brahma Kumari Ashrams remain closed for long hours in the name of leisure and relaxation. The logic behind closing Brahmakumari Ashrams for some time for the purpose of rest can be understood in such cases, where only one or two Sisters stay, but in those Centres where many volunteers (sevadharis) live, closing the Ashram completely for some time is not in accordance with the following Shrimat (Godly direction) of Supreme Father Shiva:

Q.No.48.We have been told that 90% of the members of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya have been members of Brahmakumari Institution. But despite this fact why are the members of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya not permitted to enter into the Brahmakumari Ashrams?

Ans: God Shiva has directed that the Brahma Kumari Ashram should remain open to all seekers of knowledge transcending barriors like religion, race, language etc. Prajapita Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya implies that it is meant for the whole world. But as soon as Incharges of Brahma Kumaris Ashrams find any student follower had listened to the (Advance) knowledge propagated by Adhyathmik Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya of Kampila, U.P. and given by Shiv Shankar Bholeynath, they are forthwith forbidden to enter Brahma Kumari Ashram and they are banished like the Pandavas. This is perhaps done by the Brahmakumari Vidyalaya to stop the progress of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya and to prevent the other ignorant members from receiving Godly message and so that their source of income is not affected. There is no such restriction on the entry of the followers of any religion of the world into their own religious place. It is surprising to see this sort of treatment by the Brahmakumari organization being meted out to its own followers, especially when it is obtaining special concession in Income Tax from the Indian Parliament and the Indian Government and is receiving land at cheaper rates or as donation from different state governments. But despite all the above restrictions, many souls including Brahmakumar-kumaris all over the world are getting Godly message and many souls are recognizing the practical role of Supreme Soul Shiva being played in an ordinary costume and are making their lives successful by imbibing The Knowledge received from Him as per their respective roles in this 5000 years old human world drama.


Q.No.49. We have been told that the Gyan Murlis (flutes of knowledge), which are considered to be Godly versions by the Brahmakumaris Institution are manipulated by them. Why is it so?
Ans: Till today, the followers of all the religions other than Hindus accord their Holy Books utmost reverence. They do not indulge in tampering, deleting and modifying words or sentences from their sacred texts, nor misrepresenting/ misinterpreting them. But it is surprising to note that the process of alteration of the Gyan Murlis (flute of knowledge) narrated through the mouth of Dada Lekhraj by God Shiva, began after the demise of Mama and Baba to arrest the progress of Geetapathshalas in general and the Adhyathmik Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya located at Farrukhabad, Uttar Pradesh in particular due to selfish motives. It is not only surprising but also a matter of sorrow for thousands of Brahma Kumaris that the very divine words (Vani) uttered by God Shiv Himself are being tampered with. Actually, these versions of God are meant to be guidelines for all the aspiring souls of this world and also a medium for achieving eternal peace and prosperity globally. Therefore, it is a mater of deep regret that some body-conscious Gurus mix their own opinions to tamper or misinterpret them. A relevant Murli point:

• "You don't keep even His (Brahma's) photo. Don't keep photos of embodied persons (Mamma-Baba, Dadi, Didi, etc.)." (Murli 10.06.71 pg.1)
• "Baba explains that only the ignorant followers insist on acquiring the photos ... This body is nothing but soil. Why should we see his (Brahma's) photo? The traditions of Bhakti Marg (path of worship) do not exist in the Gyan Marg (path of knowledge)." (Murli 13.11.70, pg 2)


The above Murli points are being quoted by arjun Bhai to show that the BKs are practising Bhakti marg; but if you observe very closely then the same Bhakti is being repeated in Advance Party in the same subtle form; PBKs are now distributing the national Tri-colour flag of India with Trimurti picture therein where both Dada Lekhraj and Veerendra Dev Dixit are being shown in the same picture; this is inspite of Shivbap saying in Murlis that ShivBaba is a-shariri (without body) but the PBKs insist on projecting bindi ShivBaba as Veerendra Dev Dixit/ShivBaba (with body); the same practice of bhakti-marg is repeated; BKs project bindi Shivbap was bap-teacher-satguru through' Dada Lekhraj and PBKs are projecting that bindi Shivbap is bap-teacher-satguru through' Veerendra Dev Dixit. If Advanced Knowledge is gyan-marg then there should be not even a trace of Bhakti (photo-keeping); everything should rest in the intellect. Is it not??

PBKs are now distributing the national Tri-colour flag of India with Trimurti picture therein where both Dada Lekhraj and Veerendra Dev Dixit are being shown in the same picture; this is inspite of Shivbap saying in Murlis that ShivBaba is a-shariri (without body) but the PBKs insist on projecting bindi ShivBaba as Veerendra Dev Dixit/ShivBaba (with body); the same practice of Bhakti-marg is repeated; BKs project bindi Shivbap was bap-teacher-Satguru through' Dada Lekhraj and PBKs are projecting that bindi Shivbap is bap-teacher-Satguru through' Veerendra Dev Dixit. If Advanced Knowledge is Gyan-marg then there should be not even a trace of Bhakti (photo-keeping); everything should rest in the intellect. Is it not??

Dear Brother,
Omshanti. I wish to humbly state that you have not gone through the VCD*/clarification Murlis or checked the facts before writing the above words marked by me in bold letters.

For the information of everyone I wish to state that the picture of Baba Veerendra Dev Dixit was first of all used in the place of Shankar in the picture of Trimurti Flag (based on the Indian Tricolour) that was printed by some PBKs as posters to give message to the BKs about Trimurti Shiv during their megaprogrammes held in Hyderabad, Bangalore and Cochin (all in South India). Even this was done only because the BKs have been regularly using violence to stop PBKs from distributing any kind of pamphlets to the BKs much outside the venue of their mega programmes. So, the idea of posters was developed by some PBKs to avoid PBKs from being beaten/harmed by the BKs. But most of the posters were promptly torn by the BKs on the same day or subsequent days.

But soon after the use of those posters, Baba said in the clarification Murlis that revelation of the Father cannot take place just by printing posters. He clearly stated that this is also a form of Bhakti. So after that PBKs have stopped printing such posters. And such posters are neither circulated through email to any PBK nor printed in any of the PBK literature. In fact ever since the Advance Party began in 1976, the photo of Baba Veerendra Dev Dixit or the mother PBK Kamala Devi has never been used anywhere in any form. It was only after the video recordings of Murlis began in the year 2000 that non-PBKs or the PBKs who hadn't met Baba were able to see him. Until then they were able to only hear his voice. Even now the photo of Baba Veerendra Dev Dixit is not displayed in any of the Mini Madhubans or Gita pathshalas. If any PBK is publishing/distributing the copies of the above posters unofficially, then it is at his/her own risk. If you wish you can report the matter to Baba and know his views.

Although the Trimurti Flag made of cloth has been in use by PBKs since a few years/months, but the photo of Shankar was never replaced Baba Veerendra Dev Dixit in these flags. It may be possible that all the three personalities of Brahma, Shankar and Vishnu may be replaced in the flag by the actual personalities playing those roles, but when that happens only time will tell.

I agree with you that "If Advanced Knowledge is Gyan-marg then there should be not even a trace of Bhakti (photo-keeping); everything should rest in the intellect."

With regards,
OGS,

Q.No.50. During the process of practice of RajYoga (meditation) in the Brahmakumari Ashrams, the Brahmakumari Sisters who conduct practice of RajYoga give drishti (i.e. look into the eyes of seekers of knowledge). Does Adhyatmik Vidyalaya also practice the same method of RajYoga?

Ans: As long as Dada Lekhraj alias Brahma was alive, incorporeal Supreme Father Shiv used to enter into him and enable his unworldly (aloukik) children, sitting in front of Him to experience soul consciousness and used to fill them with energy with His divine vision. As long as he lived, Brahma Kumaris never gave drishti (looking at each other’s eyes as part of meditation) to other Brahma Kumaris in the name of Raj Yoga. But after the demise of Dada Lekhraj alias Brahma, Brahma Kumaris started giving drishti to other Brahmakumaris. This is a wrong practice, since the Brahma Kumaris have not achieved the fully soul-conscious stage. And since the Supreme Father Shiva does not enter into them, they cannot give drishti to others to purify them. This sort of giving and receiving ‘drishti’ in the midst of degraded souls enhances the subtle body conscious state rather than decreasing it. Actually, the correct way of Raj Yoga is to remember the Supreme Father through his living corporeal medium.

• “Those who exchange visions become devils. Divinity disappears from those seeking visions.” (Murli 02.05.73).
“Here, children need to possess clean hearts. It is not as though they leave home and exchange visions here, in spite of being members of the Brahmin race.” (Murli-09.02.73, pg 2)
“Very often man and woman see each other with a sinful vision. If a person looks at another with an evil eye, he/she should not even stand before the person. He/she should leave at once.” (Murli 31.01.75).
“Do not think that those who come here are free from evil thoughts (i.e. the poison of sex-lust). As soon as they see each other, storms of sinful thoughts arise to become lustful.” (Murli 19.09.73, pg 2)

Actually, remembering the incorporeal God through his corporeal living medium is the correct procedure of RajYoga. That is why, the members of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya, i.e. Prajapita Brahmakumar-kumaris remember the incorporeal Supreme Father Shiva, who has come in an ordinary body through all the relationships. Unlike the Brahmakumari Institution, members of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya do not give drishti to each other, because all of us are making efforts to become pure. That is why; we cannot become pure or purify others by giving or receiving drishti. Wherever the Supreme Father Shiva teaches his spiritual children RajYoga by entering into his present ordinary human medium-like Chariot, He gives drishti to them in order to infuse power into them. Since Shiva is ever pure, giving drishti to sinful souls does not have any ill-effect on Him.

Q.No. 51. Large public programmes involving huge expenditures are organized by the Brahmakumari Vidyalaya for the publicity of Godly message. Does Adhyatmik Vidyalaya also organize such public programmes? If not, then how do you spread the Godly knowledge?

Ans: The Shrimat of Supreme Father Shiv says that Godly Service, i.e. imparting of knowledge to the people of the world about soul, Supreme Soul, the beginning, middle and end of this world and the task of spreading the message of the divine, but incognito incarnation of the Supreme Father Shiv from door to door should be done with a bare minimum expenditure. In this divine service, there is no need for any undue pomp and show. That is why neither any kind of donation is sought from any member of Adhyatmik Vidyalaya nor is any amount collected to organize public programmes. Efforts are made to give Godly message to every person through person to person meetings (i.e. individual contact) or through pamphlets.

But after the demise of Dada Lekhraj (alias Brahma) in 1969, Brahma Kumaris Institution has violated this fruitful and beneficial rule many times. In the recent years, Brahma Kumaris Institution has been spending lacs or crores of rupees of public money on the organisation of public programmes, in which bigger and bigger posters of the Administrators of the Institution are being exhibited in a conspicuous way, instead of revealing the Supreme Father Shiv-Shankar Bholeynath present in the practical form, which is a matter of deep sorrow.
