Mandirs are a platform for success. They afford the opportunity to develop talents and present them to an appreciative audience. BAPS mandirs around the world provide instruction in the performing arts, cooking, literature, public speaking, athletics, leadership, and human resources administration. Instruction is followed with recitals, competitions, and practical applications of training. People are encouraged to participate in these talent development workshops and courses regardless of their age and abilities. These programs invest in raising confidence by positively reaffirming success while grounding it with spirituality. Weekly classes, summer training camps, and conventions further facilitate such achievements.
