Model-turned-nun Sofia Hayat, or Mother Sofia as she prefers to be called now, has piqued the interest of many with her turn to spirituality.
In a recent interview to Times of India, she claimed she had a renaissance of sorts, through which she realised she had a special gift.
“I was in a verbally abusive relationship, where I once tried to kill myself. It was then that I realised that I had almost died, as I could feel myself come out of my body. After coming back to my senses, I went to a healer, who realised that a person, whose body was made of sun, came out of me. I became weak and could only feel ‘pure love’ in my body. It was then that I realised that I had a gift. I was the mother and daughter of the Holy Trinity,” Sofia Hayat reportedly said in the interview.
Best known for participating in the seventh season of Bigg Boss, Mother Sofia was a wild card entry that year. Early this April, she announced she had given up her ‘materialistic’ life for a simpler one.
The transformation, she shared, began two years ago when she was struggling in the abusive relationship. A ‘most sacred reason’ is what nudged her towards her new life as Mother Sofia.
Now, the former model has decided to give up the ‘material’ trappings of life. “I will never have sex, get married nor have children. Since I am the holy mother, everyone’s my children. I have to look after everyone and make sure they know there is no hell. It is heaven that they are living in,” she said.
“Makeup is fake and an effort to make us look like what we are not. The same is relevant for acting, which is all about pretending. I will not act anymore in my life, as acting is a false reality,” she further added.
Sofia claims to have also healed several people post the incident, including helping a woman conceive, the English daily reported.
Apart from that, Mother Sofia claimed that several Hindu gods came to her.
“Rama, Krishna and Ganesha have come to me and told me that the earth is heaven and there is no hell. I wish to make the earth more heavenly,” she said told the interviewer.
