During the summer vacation in Gujarat, a series of six SVAS Kishore-Kishori Shibirs were held between 6 May and 1 June 2010 at Navsari, Bochasan and Ahmedabad. Each three-day shibir focused on Satsang, Vyatitva Vikas (Self-Development), Arogya (Health) and Shikshan (Education).
Pujya Mahant Swami presided over all the shibirs and inspired the 1,466 kishores and 2,434 kishoris who attended with his thoughtful and practical guidance. In addition, Pujya Tyagvallabh Swami at Bochasan and Pujya Ishwarcharan Swami at Ahmedabad also inspired the youngsters.
The shibir theme, ‘Kahat He Sant Sujan…’, was presented through speeches, audiovisual presentations, debates, pre-recorded skits, question-answer sessions and video blessings from Pramukh Swami Maharaj on each topic. The teenagers were also inspired by video interviews of satsangi youths Shri Yashwant Jethwa (IPS Officer) and Bhavik Kotadia (Pilot) who have excelled in their careers while sincerely practicing satsang values.
The shibirs thus provided the youths with practical guidance on how to progress in every aspect of their lives.
