As part of the year-long BAPS Youth Activities 60th anniversary celebrations, 800 selected youths in 200 groups visited 200 villages throughout Gujarat to strengthen the values of satsang among the resident devotees and villagers.
Each group of four yuvaks were designated a village to travel to, where they carried out home visits and encouraged people to shed addictions. They also conducted children’s and public assemblies in which they presented speeches and bhajans to convey satsang messages.
Each yuvak had received training for his role during the visit. The visits helped to build public-speaking and teamwork skills among the youths. The youths were well received by the villagers and the youths also learnt about the rural lifestyle and the villagers’ dedication to satsang.
