Over 700 youth delegates from South Africa, Zimbabwe and East Africa attended the Almast Convention in the presence of Pujya Bhaktipriyadas (Kothari) Swami and other swamis from India. The convention focused on the means to become Almast – the state of complete bliss, no matter the environment, the situation or the atmosphere. A state free of stress, anger, anxiety, frustration and depression that can be attained by learning to detach oneself from whatever weighs down one’s happiness. By highlighting the tendencies of today’s youths that hinder their experience of happiness, the swamis guided the delegates on using social media with discretion, keeping the company of youths who reinforce positive values, introspection, academic priorities, attachment to the satpurush and other relevant topics. The convention inspired the youths to strive for a balance in life that will enable them to become Almast.
