Yuvati Parayan 2014 was held across 500 centers in Gujarat and Maharashtra in which around 33,000 yuvatis participated. The Parayans were based on the theme of 'Akshar Purushottam na Badadiya', as part of the year-long celebrations for Shastriji Maharaj’s 150th birth anniversary.
During the three days Parayan, the yuvatis presented bhajans, speeches, group discussions, skits and videos based on specific virtues of Shastriji Maharaj: Tolerance, Loyalty and Empathy.
On the first day of Parayan, the delegates learnt about Shastriji Maharaj's tolerance inspite of extreme hardships faced by him, in propagating the truth of the Akshar-Purushottam Upasana. His virtues were further elaborated through the bhajan ‘Je dukh thay te thajo re’ performed by the yuvatis, followed by a speech on the hardships faced by sadhus and devotees in fostering the growth of the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha.
The second day of the parayan was focused on loyalty in Shastriji Maharaj's life and the loyalty of devotees during his time. On the final day, the attendees learnt about the empathy - oneness - between the sadhus and devotees and the oneness that Shastriji Maharaj had towards his devotees.
The parayan concluded with a compilation of video blessings from Pramukh Swami Maharaj speaking on the divine life and personality of Shastriji Maharaj. Everyone present was inspired to imbibe the values and teachings of Shastriji Maharaj.
