As part of the year-long celebration of Shastriji Maharaj’s 150th birth anniversary, this year’s summer shibirs for yuvaks and yuvatis were based on the theme ‘Yagnapurush Chhe Sathe’ – ‘Yagnapurush Is With Us’.
A total of 25 day-long shibirs were held during April and May 2014 at BAPS centers in Mumbai and throughout Gujarat. Over 26,000 youths participated in these shibirs.
Each shibir conveyed the central message through speeches by learned sadhus, workshops, interviews, skits, quizzes and video presentations.
In addition, 1,550 youths of Vadodara and Bharuch attended the shibir held in Sarangpur from 18 to 20 April, in the presence of Pramukh Swami Maharaj. In addition to the interviews and presentations, the shibir featured speeches by Pujya Keshavjivan Swami (Pujya Mahant Swami) and Pujya Viveksagar Swami and other learned sadhus on topics related to the central theme.
Through these shibirs, the youths learnt about the life, work and message of Brahmaswarup Shastriji Maharaj.
