|Satsang Karo ne Karavo
9 April, 2005, London, UK
UK Bal/Balika Mandal held it’s annual shibir in the London Mandir
on Saturday, 9th April 2005. An amazing 815 Bal/Balikas from 30 different
centres around the UK attended the one-day event hosted by saints and
volunteers. This shibir was special because for the first time ever
in the history of the sanstha the Shishu mandal members as young as
three years old were also catered for and taught how Satsang plays a
big role in their lives. The theme for all of this year’s shibirs
was ‘Satsang Karo ne Karavo’ as per Swamishri’s blessings.
children were then divided into groups of six and were supplied with
basic materials in which to design a temple where aarti and thal could
be offered. The aim was for them to combine their efforts and work with
unity to achieve their goal. Prizes were awarded for teamwork as well
as the most innovative and artistic models. The young Karyakars of Birmingham
and Loughborough Mandal conducted this session well.
the last session, P. Shukmuni Swami gave an inspiring talk on the greatness
of our Guru and his ability to easily transform lives of one and all.
The ultimate item of the day was a huge screen presentation followed
by a talk by P. Atmaswarup Swami on the uniqueness of ‘Mystic
India’. Hitenbhai taught the Bal/Balikas how they can ‘be
part of the bigger picture’ by presenting the Mystic India information
pack to their school teachers and encourage them to come and experience
Nilkanth Varni’s epic journey at an large format theatre in various
parts of UK. In this way, even they were able to offer their seva by
being instrumental in its promotion.
