"Without Guru, no one can cross to the shore"

N- Nitya Puja
The celebration started with a speech.
H (ands) - Hardwork - It highlighted the importance of Gurupurnima and Guru in our life. The speech also emphasised the importance of hardwork and motivated all the students to stay away from distractions. It was followed by an interaction with Std 10 Toppers. In their interaction they shared how perseverance, hard work and prayer helped them to achieve their goal.
(h)A(nds) - Ahnik - The most interesting part of the celebration was when teachers were invited on the stage to motivate all the students by sharing their own experiences of daily ghar sabha, daily reading etc. Mrs. Punita Gadhia explained the importance of daily routine by giving the example of Yogiji Maharaj. Mr. Mukesh Varmora shared the importance of daily mansi, puja and aarti. Mrs. Devanshi Surawala shared how she got the motivation from Pramukh Swami Maharaj to read Vachanamrut daily.
(ha) N (ds) - Nitya Puja - Students were encouraged to perform their Nitya Puja daily where ever they go. As it is the way to stay connected to Bhagvan and Guru, and also to offer them our gratitude.
(han)D(s) - Dharma - One should always follow their dharma. Students in SVMR are continuously guided in following & inculcating Dharma in their lives. Also it is students Dharma to thank their Guru, therefore as a part of expressing gratitude to the Guru and teachers, a mesmerizing semi classical dance was performed by our std 7'th girls.
(hand)S - Samp - It was then followed by a speech on the importance of Satsang in life, keeping a good company, and samp among each other. Which also emphasised on following all the rules set out by Param Pujya Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
