BAPS Mandirs across North America held a Kids’ Diwali Celebration themed “Sanghe Shakti: Strength in Unity”. The goal of this year’s ​​Diwali ​​celebration​ ​was to educate the young participants on ​​how the values of Hindu culture provides opportunities for them to connect with their families and communities. ​​​​ By adding ​​to ​​last​​ year’s​​ theme of ​​“A ​​New ​​Beginning”, this year’s theme reinforced the necessity​​ of ​​instilling the family​​ values preached by Hindu sages from the “Ramayan” scripture.  “Sanghe Shakt:​​ Strength​​ in​​ Unity”​​ is ​​a ​​celebration​​ centered​​ on ​​the​​ morals ​​and values​​ practiced within ​​Hindu​​ dharma, ​​and​​ embodied ​​in ​​the ​​coming ​​together​​ during the ​​festival ​​of ​​Diwali ​and beyond.

BAPS youth activities aims to create an environment where each and every youth can develop spiritually, mentally, and emotionally, in order to become closer to God and the Guru. In addition, BAPS encourages families to unify and garner mutual understanding. The Kids’ Diwali Celebration emphasized the message that mutual​ ​understanding, ​​acceptance, ​ ​respect, ​​and ​​love ​​will prevent ​​or ​​resolve ​​any ​​difficulties ​​within families.

BAPS, inspires its members to organize programs to celebrate the essence and teachings of Hindu festivals including Diwali, while simultaneously enriching the youth with meaningful lessons; thereby enabling them with the tools to advance the universal principles of peace, love and harmony and to continuously provide voluntary services to the community.
