A total of around 1,100 yuvaks and yuvatis from BAPS centers in Vadodara attended the three-day shibir held at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Sankari. Based on the theme ‘Pramukh Swami Chhe Sathe,’ the shibir elaborated on the principle that the Gunatit Satpurush’s divine presence on earth is eternal and that he is always with us.
The presence of the Gunatit Satpurush is experienced through his ‘Shasvat Prem’ (Eternal Affection), ‘Shasvat Prerna’ (Eternal Inspiration) and ‘Shasvat Astitva’ (Eternal Existence).
To perceive this presence of the Gunatit guru, the youths were guided on imbibing (1) Mahima, (2) Smruti, (3) Samp, (4) Prarthana, (5) Agna and (6) Satsang Prachar.
These topics were presented through speeches by senior swamis, quizzes, skits, audiovisual presentations and question-answer sessions.
During the shibir the youths also performed samuh puja.
The shibir inspired the youths to practice satsang in their daily lives to earn the blessings of Bhagwan Swaminarayan and guru Mahant Swami Maharaj, and enlightened them on the manifest presence of the satpurush to guide them in every phase of life.
