Original Email Received
Dear Sister Shivani,
Apologies for the long email but I wanted to explain the complete situation so that we can get the guidance accordingly.
Situation is very critical as my little brother has been diagnosed with SCHIZOPHRENIA (characteristic of schizophrenia: delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, disorganized behavior, and the so-called “negative” symptoms).
He sometimes become violent with my parents and also threatens them. As my parents are not that physically fit so it is becoming difficult for us to handle the situation and also his future is at stake.
Please me and my parents want to meet you sister Shivani so that we can understand and get the proper guidance regarding on handle this critical situation.
It will be very difficult for us to convince him to do the meditation at this point of time.
Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Thanks & Regards

Dear Divine Brother/Sister
Whatever term doctor's give to it - there i simply a need to look after the children when they are in this age. If parents are not strict enough - especially the city children who are exposed to such much negativity can be harmed like this. So parents are responsible to look after - if needed - very strictly.
Secondly - we have given a spiritual guidance, healing of mind and intellect through rajyog meditation - anyone can learn and daily practice. Will is all needed.
Third - You or parents can take him to attend lectures - spiriutal lecures held at many Rajyog centres, and even the main centre (Madhuban) or even BK Shivani's program. This will atleast make him think what he really wants from this precious life.
It seems that this is more because of the age. In this age, it is seen that some children gets away (emotionally) from their parents due to reasons you know.
The spiritual solution is the best solution - but this is only possible if your brother supports. This requires him to willingly do meditation - learn a good day to day lifestyle (which includes many things)
So ask and convince him - if willing, we can guide you towards the spiritual healing. See- since the age of body is such that even hormonal changes can affect the mind. So whatever you speak to him -very careful. Do not say that ''You have a problem''. Instead say 'You can feel much better as a person is you learn spiritual wisdom or adopt a good day to day lifestyle.''
After this, if your brother is ready - do let us know.
