About 2,000 young and enthusiastic children, aged between 8 and 13, gathered in Sarangpur village for the Akhil Bhartiya Bal-Balika Adhiveshan in the presence of BAPS spiritual head Mahant Swami Maharaj. These children had prepared for months together and progressed through several rounds of competitions, including Zonal and Regional camps, to qualify for the national finals. In total, over 1,30,000 children from 8,200 BAPS centers across India participated in the initial phases, from which the final participants had progressed.

During the conference, the children participated in various competitions, sadhus and senior volunteers acted as judges. A prize-giving ceremony, darshan of sacred sites in Sarangpur and Gadhada villages, and an inspiring and fun-filled two-day shibir in the presence of Swamishri and senior sadhus were included as events.



Over the past three months, these youngsters have used their vacation and play time to prepare for the various competitions, their motto being: “This vacation, only Adhiveshan”. Each participant had qualified for a varying number of the nine competitions: Satsang Mukhpath, Satsang Q&A, Akshar-Purushottam Darshan Mukhpath, Public Speaking, Solo Kirtan Singing, Solo-dance, Mono-acting, Storytelling, and Sketching and Coloring.

A spectacular opening ceremony was organised, featuring dances from different regions of India, in which children greeted Mahant Swami Maharaj in their regional and local languages and traditions.

Swamishri’s blessings further motivated the children, “All of you have already earned Maharaj-Swami’s pleasure.”  Echoing the sentiments of Pramukh Swami Maharaj, Swamishri ended by saying, “I love you all.”
