India’s ancient traditions and rituals are as relevant today as they were centuries ago. The rites and rituals, art, architecture, dance, theatre, music, and alternative wellness methods passed down for generations have touched millions of people and continue to influence the lives of many around the world. The BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha reinforces these traditions through activities around its global network. Celebrating festivals, performing special Vedic prayers and rituals, preserving ancient art and architecture, and promoting a healthy lifestyle through yoga and a vegetarian diet are all integral parts of BAPS’ cultural and development activities. These activities celebrate Indian traditions in over 3,850 communities worldwide.
