Accommodation at Mount Abu (madhuban) - requirements & procedure - How can you stay at the main centre (ashram) of Brahma Kumaris Godly University?
Madhuban is the place of Godly experiences. This is the place where God (Shiv baba) played a part of giving/speaking knowledge (Murli) through medium of Prajapita Brahma. Later, the Avyakt Murlis were also spoken here only. Know more on History of Yagya
Mount Abu is a Karmabhumi (place of performing great karma/deeds) of the Supreme being. In ancient texts also, much is written about this Mount Abu, located in the Arravali mountain ranges. In Sakar days (till 1969), much of the places where rock and jungle. But now it has been transformed into residence and beautiful gardens. The below is picture of Tapasya Dham (where brahman souls gathers for deep meditation (Yog).
As you may know, the Madhuban (forest of honey) is the central place for all brahmins (BKs), the Tapasya bhumi (place of penance) and it is the highest hermitage (ashram). Many of us, since we came in Gyaan (since our spiritual birth) have come and visited Mount Abu. But for those who just came (new students), and wish to know the direction or procedure to come and stay in madhuban for a short time or to surrender in yagya, we have made the following points to be noted:
Requirements for a Stort Stay
If you only wish to come for a short visit, it is simple. The only requirement is that you must have taken the basic 7 days course at your local centre and have been connected to that centre for atleast 6 months. Please read the procedure carefully.
There are three ways you can visit mount abu center - for Rajyog course/a spiritual seminar, with the turn at specific dates or at your own day and time with your family as a short visit.
1. With regional turns (state wise)
There are different turns in which all the states of India are covered. Turn by turn, the BK brother and sisters of particular states are welcomed to stay in madhuban. This happens for the entire year for dates of Avyakt Milan.
2. For course and Seminar
At madhuban, we occasional arrange for 7 days course (Pradarshani) and spiritual seminars for doctors, engineers, school and college teaches and those who are invited are given the accommodation. For this, there is no requirement.
However the spiritual museum in Pandav Bhawan is always open to all for the 7 days course.
3. Individual and with family
If someone wish to come on their own date, they can also come. They need a letter written by their regional centre (with their name and details) saying that the brother or sister is a BK since this many years, have been living with purity and is regular in study.
NOTE: You will require this letter if you wish to enter or stay in madhuban.
When you have obtained such letter from your local Rajyoga centre, then you should prepare the stay (accommodation). We have many buildings where you can book your stay. You DO NOT need to pay any money for the period of stay. It is free, and the 7 days RajaYog course and classes are free as well. This is the service in which everything is for your benefit for which, God does not ask you to give anything accept your weaknesses. Hence we ask everyone to leave their all weakness when they return from madhuban. Weakness is referred to the 5 vices (anger,lust,greed,ego,attachment). Do spiritual effort and study (knowledge) which guides us. Yog with Shiv baba, is the prime source of powers for the soul.
How to Book the stay (a room)?
Shantivan complex and Manmohini complex are made for accommodation for visitor brothers and sisters and their family. We have plenty of space and you live in the shadow of Almighty Shiv baba.

Requirements for a Long Stay
1. You must have become a regular Godly student and are a follower of most, if not all principles and guidelines set according to the shrimat of murli. You should be in Gyaan since at least 5 years.
Main day to day life principles that we follow includes: Amritvela meditation, morning Murli class (or listen/reading Murli at home), eating Sattvik food ( clean, simple food without onion/garlic ), evening Yog (meditation) and giving Sakash to the world souls (refer: What is Sakash?)
( The teacher incharge of your local BK centre will write this in the letter that you will bring to Mount Abu )
2. Being a Godly student, you would be listening or reading the murli regularly via any means (going to a nearby centre, via internet, tv, etc.). Murli of beloved Supreme father (Shiv baba) is food for the soul that is the source of spiritual energy and inspirations for Purusharth (self upliftment) and world service. (Refer source: What is Murli in Brahma Kumaris?)
3. You took a vow of purity in this last birth. Purity is our main subject and is the MUST requirement of anyone who wish to stay in Madhuban as a BK student for long time or to Surrender in yagya. It is the main quality of a brahman soul, hence if you wish to stay in madhuban (garden of God), then you must be living a life with complete celibacy in terms of the shrimat given by Shiv baba to us.
All above 3 are requirements to describe yourself as a godly student. Hence you can now come to madhuban for a short or long stay.
Here is the Surrender Letter (Samarpan Patra) you will have to accept and fill.
