Known for her bold roles and endless controversies in Bigg Boss 7, model-turned-Bollywood actress Sofia Hayat seems to have taken the path to inner peace now. Hayat has become a nun, and goes by the name Mother Sofia now, reported several news outlets on Monday.
Her Instagram bio now says:
"Sofia Hayat Gaia Mother Sofia. I am mother of all. The earth was created when I spoke the word. Om. I have awoken to spread the truth. I am the the living truth."
Three years ago, entering as a wild card contestant on the popular show Bigg Boss, Hayat mostly made headlines for her fights with fellow contestants. In a particular case, she even filed a complaint against Armaan Kohli alleging that she was manhandled and subjected to unparliamentary language by him inside the Bigg Boss house.
She also stirred up controversy in November 2014, when Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma scored a historic 264 runs against Sri Lanka, after dedicating a nude photoshoot to him on Twitter. The two had dated for a brief period of time, a couple of years prior, before Hayat ended things.
Two weeks ago, she also posted a video on her Instagram and captioned it:
"The divine mother is here.."
When you know that the world is an illusion for us to learn something, but has been infiltrates by reptilian programming, you can start to let go of the ego..and the ego is everything that you think you are..clothes. .makeup..job..personality..religion..your family..when you let go of all of this..then all that is left is love and freedom..and that is what you are. Namaste. Gaia Mother Sofia
It's all about you. You create this world. In knowing you are a creator. .you can then harness your own mind to what you want in life. See..we have been tricked into thinking we are not so great and powerful..but you are. Children of divine source of me. Your time is finally here. Just release all negative programming. Your electric body has been programmed for so long you think you are less. .but stop "thinking", feel..from your heart. For it is the heart that can release everything and bring you above the programming of the matrix. You all know the programming. It's that negativity that you were not born with..you are love and always were creator gods full of joy, love and compassion. How wonderful are you!!! Welcome yourself back. I love you infinitely..because you never die..you are eternal as is my heart and love for you. Namaste. Gaia Mother Sofia
"Mother Sofia", in another video, also thanked a driver for returning a handbag she left it in his car three days prior.
