When someone as wonderful as Sister Shivani of the Brahma Kumaris showers Life Positive with praise, we know we have done something right!
Twenty years ago a divine baby was conceived and named Life Positive. The baby was the creation of two very special souls – Parveen Chopraji and Aditya Ahluwaliaji. Did they know the influence this baby was going to have on millions of lives? Did they realise that their baby would be an answer to many prayers, a direct gift from God to souls who had lost hope?

I was very touched by the article because it was so different from what I had ever read by a journalist writing about the BKs. Every word radiated an indepth understanding, and experiential journey, rather than informat
