over 150,000 pilgrims visit BAPS mandirs
in India and
outside India (in Africa, Europe, America and Australia).
Our mandirs are more than places of worship. They are charged
with zeal and are vibrant with social and spiritual activities.
All major religious festivals are ritually celebrated in their
original colour and finery. They create a perfect climate to know
about God, Hindu Dharma, Indian culture and life.
conducted in Mandirs or by Sadhus:
youth assemblies and
children assemblies regularly reach out and touch thousands
A climate in which character,
intelligence, virtues, talents, fitness, and spiritual consciousness
can flourish, is created through lectures, seminars, stories,
audio-visual presentations, dramas, yoga, music, crafts, folk
dances, rhymes and games.
Student and leadership training camps set ablaze in them the fire
of service and sacrifice, devotion and dedication.
Special camps and conventions for girls and women concentrate
on inspiring the ideals of pure womanhood.
The Sanstha organizes majestic child and youth conventions and
holds healthy competitions of their proficiency in arts, crafts
and talents at local, national and international levels.
Whether it is the weekly assembly or the annual convention, all
members, young and old, enhance the quality of their lives, and
help raise the standard of morality and spirituality of their
family, friends and the society they live in.
