In the presence of Pujya Mahant Swami, 915 yuvaks and yuvatis from the regions of Sankari, Bardoli and Ukai participated in a shibir based on the theme ‘Live for BAPS’. The youths were guided and inspired through speeches by Mahant Swami and other learned and experienced sadhus. Question-answer sessions, video shows and discussions provided further clarification of the major topics. The youths were also given career guidance by experienced civil servant Shri Jagdishbhai Bardiya.
At the end of the shibir the youths undertook pledges to live by the wishes of Bhagwan Swaminarayan and guru Pramukh Swami Maharaj. All the youths were given malas which had been sanctified by Swamishri in Sarangpur.
