Balaks and balikas from BAPS Satsang Mandal, Paris visited BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London from Wednesday 18 April to Tuesday 24 April 2012 on a week-long Satsang-enhancing trip. The visit was organised during their school vacation.
Various religious and recreational activities were organised throughout the week to make learning fun and interactive. The children were also inspired by the efforts and dedication of karyakars and learned from sessions conducted by sadhus in preparation for the upcoming Kidz Ultimate Challenge.
Daily Satsang activities at the Mandir in London included arti, spiritual discourses, and engaging in seva. The weekly Saturday sabha was also an important highlight.
The French group also had an opportunity to visit a number of mandirs across the UK, including Wellingborough, Luton, and the recently consecrated mandir in Leicester.
The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit, making new friends and learning new skills and concepts which they will now share with others back in Paris.
