Thousands of yuvaks and yuvatis attended the separate three-day Yuva Parayans held at hundreds of BAPS centers throughout Gujarat, Maharashtra and other states in India.
The parayans were based on three topics from the Satsang Diksha shastra: self-control, understanding and keeping good company. Each topic was presented by the yuvaks and yuvatis in their respective parayan assemblies through discourses, speeches, skits, discussions and videos. Videos of Mahant Swami Maharaj’s explanations of the three topics were also shown during each two-hour parayan assembly.
The youths made special efforts to decorate the parayan locations to reflect the topics of the parayan.
The parayans also re-inforced in the youths the need to daily read five verses from the Satsang Diksha shastra to remain aware of their duties.
