The annual BAPS Women’s Conference 2018 took place in 14 cities across North America, with the goal of bringing together women of all ages and backgrounds for an open dialogue about concepts that impact them and their families. This year’s conference themed, Unity is Strength, focused on the importance of human connectedness and the impact each person can have in the collective unity of the world. By focusing on the topics of unity, humility, and positivity, the conference not only provided an opportunity for attendees to understand the significance of unity as a global concept, but also discussed the little steps everyone can take toward this ultimate goal. While the idiom, “United we stand, divided we fall” is familiar to all, speakers at this year’s conference highlighted how individuals, regardless of their role in society, can meaningfully contribute to building unity within the greater community.
Each year this conference aims to inspire its attendees to bring about change through dialogue and reflection. His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj encouraged events that foster the strength and advancement of women in both family and society. Today, his beliefs are persevered by His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj who helps all to lead a life infused with spirituality and integrity.
