In the presence of Param Pujya Pramukh Swami Maharaj, 543 dedicated volunteers (375 men and 168 women) from BAPS centers outside Gujarat participated in the Divya Sannidhi Parva from 24-27 July 2003.
Active in the Children's, Youth and Women's Wings of the Sanstha, these dedicated volunteers had come from 14 states representing 110 different centers, such as, Jaipur, Ajmer, Udaipur, Patna, Raipur, Kolkata, Akola, Chandrapur, Nagpur, Bhopal, Sihor, Nasik, Pune, Barsi, Aurangabad, Dhuliya, Amalner, Sangli, Secunderabad, Nizamabad, Coimbatore, Chennai, Trivendrum, Pondicherry, New Delhi and others.
Based on the theme 'Sol Ani Satsang' - 100% Satsang - a variety of mutimedia presentations, speeches, skits, discussions, as well as question-answer sessions, guided the volunteers towards attaining greater spiritual heights.
Daily, throughout the 4-day shibir Swamishri presided over the morning and evening sessions, giving his blessings and inspiring the volunteers. In these sessions several entertaining and specially prepared theme-oriented programs were presented by volunteers from different states, incorporating the culture and uniqueness of that particular state. The volunteers also enjoyed the darshan of Swamishri during his routine daily walks, puja and at meal times, during which volunteers sang devotional songs and presented reports of the Satsang activities in progress in their region. Over 25 sadhus, including, Pujya Mahant Swami, Pujya Dr. Swami, Pujya Tyagvallabh Swami and Pujya Viveksagar Swami were present to guide the volunteers.
The shibir, coordinated by the sadhus and volunteers from the Satsang Pravrutti Central Office in Amdavad, was an enlightening, inspiring and memorable experience for all.
