Australian musician David Kilowsky accompanies Shivani on her tour through Australia, but not New Zealand alas.
Shivani, BK superstar, though she wouldn't like the term, has totally enchanted, even inspired, audiences all around Australia. Uncompromisingly direct
in her delivery, while both simplifying and rationalising the complexities of human attitudes and behaviour...she leads the audiences into a world of practical enchantment.
Unlike the older generation of BK speakers,
Shivani does not lecture. Indeed she delights in involving her audiences in lively to and fro discussion: challenging us to respond all along the way. This works a treat in smaller venues, even in Sydney's iconic State Theatre,but in 'Jeff's Shed' in
Melbourne, the venue was too large for the audience engagement to really take off: and rain kept many who had seats from coming to the event. Nonetheless her two hour show (with truly delightful subtle music from David Kilowsky), certainly won the hearts of
the 2500 folk who braved the nightShivani also spoke at the Australia Club, to an entranced group of Melbourne's CEO's, and at BK centres in and around
Although Indians around the world are almost exclusively her audience, westerners will have no trouble identifying with her message, and her subtle charisma.Her largest following is in India, followed
by the Indian diaspora in the USA, and she is also very popular in Muslim Pakistan. Her message is carried internationally by Star TV.
