What is the trance state that Gulzar Dadi go in?

Post by raj » 21 Jun 2008

Has anybody experienced the trance state that Gulzar Dadi go in, other Brahma kumaris goes in?
What is it?
Do you only hear voice of like BapDada ? or also see BapDada also?
Why only few brahma kumaris can go in trance state and not all brahma kumars and kumaris?

The BK are meant to be training up some young sisters to take over from Gulzar right now. No official comment as usual.

In the early days, yes, there were more than one medium. Allegedly 'the spook' using more than one at once in one case. There were also a lot more strong or profound trance/possession like states from children going into trance for a week, plenty of "visions of heaven" to women screaming and howling.

Some BK brothers have one off incidental visions. I knew of a western BK that had a "vision of heaven" as he described it ... he left Gyan later.
Then there is the visions/out of the body "journeys to the Subtle Regions". Many sisters seem to report them. Sometimes they are similar but more often they all come out a little different. The BKWSU put a damper on sisters doing those independently, perhaps we might discuss why.

Here is one photo from 1945, Clifton, Karachi - from the early days. While one young BK in trance dances with Krishna, the others standing in circle and watching her. The one in trance is Sister Deva, Dadi Shanta Mani's older sister. Om Radhe is standing by her giving her drishti. From Adi Devi Book, page 30.

Do you think she is "giving her drishti" or just looking at her? I am just considering these people's tendency to exaggerate everything.

If the former, was it "her dristhi" that sent the girl into trance or something else? Apparently they used to go off to Clifton in the middle of the night at midnight to do this stuff which sounds a bit weird.

Radhi Rajwani (Om Radhe) would have been about 30 by now (listed as being 22 in 1938).
