1 October 2010 (VS 2066 Bhadarvo Vad Atham) Friday, Sarangpur, Bal-Yuva Din
To celebrate Bal Din BAPS children performed traditional dances during Swamishri’s morning puja. Children also narrated incidents from the life of Ghanshyam Maharaj and performed a drama on Kalidatta, the demon who tried to kill Ghanshyam.
In the evening satsang assembly youths of the Youth Training Centre presented aspects of their training programme through drama, speech and dance. Finally, Swamishri blessed the assembly, appreciating the presentations by children and youth. He said, “Character is of importance in life. In spite of having very good education when one does not have character one cannot achieve true success. One must accomplish one’s worldly works, but along with them one must consolidate spirituality in life. This gives one inner strength.”
