With the all-important annual Board exams for Standards 10 and 12, and final year college exams due to start soon, special prayer assemblies were held at 42 BAPS centers throughout Gujarat and Mumbai. A total over 5,940 kishores and 4,510 kishoris personally participated in the collective mahapuja ceremonies to pray for everyone’s success in the forthcoming exams.
The assemblies also featured inspiring guidance from experienced sadhus, interviews with successful students, a skit depicting how improper company can distract one from studies and blessings from Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
The assemblies raised the self-confidence and faith in God of the youths. The youths were also motivated to properly use the remaining time before their exams.
In some centers the youths also offered abhishek to the murti of Shri Nilkanth Varni.
