Report on the YuvaJagaran 3 – A Youth Initiative by Bangalore West District

Sai Ram! With the grace of Bhagawan, a YUVA JAGARAN programme was conducted by the youth members of Bangalore West district.

The idea came about 3 years ago to tap the inactive youths from Sai Families, where the parents of the youths are active office bearers, but the children of these families have not yet come to the mainstream of either seva or Spiritual activities.

Therefore for the past three years this initiative is being taken up in order to motivate these youths to take active part in their respective Samithis, though some of the youths who participated were active youths also along with  Balvikas Alumni students in the meeting.

 This year since one to one congregation was not possible it was decided to go virtual.

The following was the programme – all designed and executed by the youth wing themselves. 

  1. Bhajans
  2. Panel Discussion by active youths on how they could find time to participate in Samithi Activities and their personal experiences after actively taking up seva or spiritual  activities.
  3. Presentation of a case study by a youth member drawing comparison between and diligent and a lazy youth, on habit formation, and advantages of Time Management.
  4. Spiritual Quiz conducted by the Mahila Youth.
  5. Feedback from a couple of participants who attended last year too.
  6. Closing remarks by District President and also State Vice President Sri Padmanaba Pai who was good enough to be with us throughout the programme.

In all close to 100 participants were benefitted with the programme.A separate WhatsApp group has been created with a call taken to meet  once a month and share divine experiences as well as discussions on youth related issues.
