Born in 1948, in Bombay, Sister Sheilu came in contact with the Brahma Kumaris in 1960 at the tender age of 12. Her deep interest in spirituality and inner life experiences led her to study Raja Yoga meditation, which gave her great concentration of mind and also increased the power of her intellect.
Since 1976, she has been based at the headquarters of Brahma Kumaris in Mount Abu, Rajasthan, India, where she regularly presents Raja Yoga and spiritual knowledge to groups of thousands of people at its various campuses. Her versatile grasp of the spiritual dimension makes her presentations and seminars for scientists, jurists, educators, those in media, politicians and the medical profession, particularly relevant and contemporary.
Sister Sheilu has travelled extensively in India as well as in over 70 countries, in all the five continents, as a lecturer in conferences and has been interviewed by newspapers, given talks on radio and TV wherever she has travelled. She speaks fluent English, Hindi and Sindhi and is also an expert interpreter for these languages.
