Over 70 children and 100 youths attended the Bal-Balika and Kishore-Kishori Shibirs on 4 and 11 September 2010 at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir and Youth Centre in Auckland, New Zealand.
The shibirs were based on the theme 'Hindusim: Discover and Live', in which topics such as karma, purnarjanma, murti-puja, dharma and guru-shishya relationship were presented by Jnanpurush Swami and Adarshmuni Swami.
Throughout the day the youths and children strengthened their knowledge of Hinduism with interactive speeches, group discussions and inspiring video presentations. The youths also participated in a special session of team building exercises.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the shibirs and resolved to apply the principles they had learnt in their daily lives at home, school and the mandir.
