As part of its commitment to social well-being and community development, BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha hosts annual leadership seminars to help groom leaders that can contribute to the moral, cultural, spiritual, and humanitarian landscape of their local communities. Regional Leadership Seminars with the theme “Kariye Raji Ghanshyam” were held in the presence of Sadguru Sant P. Doctor Swami in all the six regions of North America. Volunteers of each region came together to participate in this 3 day event.
P. Doctor Swami’s pragmatic and motivating oratory style inspired volunteers around the country. His lectures were complemented by a variety of workshops, multimedia presentations, interactive training sessions, and cultural programs. P. Apurvamuni Swami who is touring North America with P. Doctor Swami also guided the volunteers.
After an intense day filled with informational workshops and motivational presentations, P. Premvadan Swami and saints performed an exceptional kirtan aradhana. The evening program also had skits which provided guidance in a light-hearted manner.
Manoj Mehta, a volunteer from Jersey City, New Jersey, says that he benefited immensely: “It was the right mix of interaction, spiritual guidance, and entertainment.”
