Over 1,300 yuvaks and yuvatis from Vadodara attended a special three-day Yuva Shibir held in the presence of Pramukh Swami Maharaj at the BAPS Mandir in Sarangpur.
The shibir theme was ‘Pramukh Swami Ma Khovavu’ – ‘To Become Lost in Pramukh Swami’. It highlighted the various ways in which youths lose their way in life and how, by losing themselves in Pramukh Swami Maharaj, they can avoid the distractions that damage their personal, family and professional lives.
The youths were guided by enlightening speeches by Pujya Keshavjivan Swami (Pujya Mahant Swami), Pujya Viveksagar Swami, and other learned and experienced sadhus. The shibir theme was further elaborated upon through skits, videos, solo mimes, workshops, discussions and the video blessings of Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
The highlight throughout the shibir was the regular darshan of Pramukh Swami Maharaj. The youths were blessed with the opportunity to perform a skit and dance in Swamishri’s presence. Swamishri also blessed the kalash in which the niyams the youths had pledged to follow were placed.
Overall, the shibir inspired the youths to strengthen their bond with God and guru and sincerely follow the niyams of satsang in their daily lives.
