Over 500 kishore kishoris from East Africa (Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, and Zambia) participated in shibir held at Dar es Salaam. Based on the theme “Hinduism – Nijatmanam Brahmarupam”, the 4-day shibir provided insight to the kishores and kishoris on the Hindu principles of: brahmavidya, atmanishtha, karma and punarjanma, guru-shishya alliance, moksha and others.
The shibir topics were discussed through lectures from sadhus, workshops, interactive sessions, games, videos and skits. By using interactive mediums set up around the shibir complex, the participants were able to introspect about the questions related to Hinduism that are commonly raised in the minds of youth.
The four day shibir began early after arti and ended at night after chesta. Participants left the shibir with a better understanding about Hinduism and how it's relevant even in today's modern age.
