In the presence of Pragat Brahmaswarup Mahant Swami Maharaj, over 10,000 devotees joined around 1,000 past and present sevaks to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Yuva Talim Kendra, which was established by Brahmaswarup Pramukh Swami Maharaj in 2007. Since then, 15 batches of youths have benefited from the 6-month spiritual, management and values-based training under the guidance of experienced sadhus.
The grand 10th anniversary celebration was launched at 5.45 a.m. by Mahant Swami Maharaj releasing balloons from Pramukh Swami Maharaj's samadhi. Thereafter, youths of the Yuva Talim Kendra sang bhajans during Mahant Swami Maharaj's morning puja and senior sadhus honored him with a special shawl.
The grand evening celebration was presented in five parts:
Swamishri's Heart – Beats in the Form of the Sevaks.
Swamishri's Heart – Spreads Vitality Within the Family
Swamishri's Heart – Beats for the Benefit of Society.
Swamishri's Heart – Sustains the Satsang.
Satpurush – Nurtures Everyone's Hearts.
Through skits, audiovisual shows, thematic dances, speeches and other presentations, the messages of these five topics were effectively conveyed by over 400 participating Yuva Talim Kendra sevaks from Mumbai, Surat, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, as well as other cities and villages.
At the conclusion of the celebration assembly, Mahant Swami Maharaj blessed, "Maharaj and Swami manifest on earth out of compassion and out of grace have accepted us. The program you presented was outstanding. But now, what is to be done? Observe the niyams. Swamibapa has especially said, 'Till the end of your life, till the very last breath, observe the niyams.' By observing niyams, self-control is gained. By observing niyams, God is pleased. Maharaj has directed all to observe niyams and keep firm conviction. The youths have done a lot. After learning here, only by continually increasing one's enthusiasm, is one regarded as a true Yuva Talim Kendra sevak.”
Then, an Amrut Kumbh of all the pledges taken by the Yuva Talim Kendra sevaks was presented to Swamishri to sanctify and bless.
