Husband writes to us for wife who became a Brahma Kumari and follows the Shrimat. She shares to move away from relationship. Baba does not say this. It is Shiv baba's shrimat to stay with loukik family and study and follow the shrimat as much as possible.
Original Email Received on 2 Jan 2019
I want to reach out to Brahma Kumari’s to seek help for keeping my life together.
My wife is trying to follow the path of “Shri-mat”, and for doing that she has decided to move out of our relationship. I don’t understand if this is the right path (to leave family and home) for her to follow.
I have listened to Murali and other bk teachers regularly but I don’t think brahma Kumari’s suggest that one should leave their household to seek the light of shiv baba.
I am sure brahma Kumari’s or shiv baba does not teache anyone to leave their responsibilities and life.
My wife’s name is Ekta and she is an avid follower of Suraj bhai. Is it possible for Suraj bhai or someone in Brahma Kumari’s to guide us to the right path?
I am not sure what is the right path. But it does not feel right to me that she should denounce married life to live a “pure” life.
Please let me know if it is possible for someone at BrahmaKumari’s to guide us in the right path.
Thanks, Om Shanti.

I want you to read this email to your wife and hope they will understand the real meaning of what is Shrimat.
Shrimat of Shiv baba (our Supreme father) is to stay in the family, stay Pavitra (pure) and to do Purusharth of Yaad and self transformation. This is God's advice. Rest if some souls can do this while staying in loukik, they should. If it becomes hard, then they are allowed to stay at a center.
Baba's direction is to stay with your family. Reason is - We all have a Karmic account with our family members. In this last birth, we must finish all those accounts so that liberation is achieved without sorrow. This is KarmYog. God asks us children to remain in Yog while you do activities (karma).
You can do anything you love to, do a job, go outside for a picnic with family. Shrimat is only - To remain pure and to do Purusharth of Yog and always to listen the murli - this is being a regular Godly student.
The RIGHT PATH is path of Balance. Here is audio from us on topic Balance in Shrimat and Family life. Do listen : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1O1emkO2aZrA5YVe4VxTxiOLq91P44nBT/view
Godly student is one who daily studies the Gyan Murli and do dharna in practical life. They become divine with divine virtues (there are 7 virtues of soul)
Also the good reason baba asks us, children, to stay with our loukik family is -- This is an opportunity to do service to loukik family members, to give them Gyaan. Plus, if there is a difficulty, then using the power of Yog to overcome them. Soul can emerge its 8 powers (refer: 8 powers of Soul) to overcome problems.
So you should accept this challenge that you can become a good obedient Godly child and Godly student while staying at home.
By the way, I also stay at home and most of the BK lives at their loukik home.
Everyone has a responsibility to fulfil. How can God tell us to leave all our responsibilities?
So dear sister, you should do Dharna of Gyaan.
Further advice you to make a notebook and write down important points from today's murli - Murli website - babamurli.com
