Bal Yuvak Mandal
Late Mahant Purani Swami Hariswaroopdasji of Bhuj had a wish, to ensure that satsang (religion) continues to beam with radiance and glory and be the centre of the community for generations to come.
With so many irreligious influences and activities taking the youth away from religion, he wanted the youth to understand and feel this bliss of being in such a divine Swaminarayan Faith and know the greatness of the Supreme Lord Shree Swaminarayan. Therefore he established Bal Yuvak Mandals all over the world. He also understood the necessity and importance of female devotion and alongside that established Bal Yuvati Mandal for girls.
Bal Yuvak Mandal is a youth organisation within in the temple, mainly aimed at 14-35 year olds. However, all ages are most welcome.
We aim to establish and teach the importance of the well being of individuals through religion, religious activities and duties in society. This is achieved via a range of mediums such as group discussions, presentations, debates, questions and answers (with elders/saints), shibhir/camps, conferences, ladies only sabhas just to name a few.
So you may think its all work and no play.…. Of course not!!
We also have many fun filled activities such as; team building games, yoga, day outs and the eagerly anticipated annual sports day which brings together Yuvak Mandals from all over the UK, always meeting new people and making new friends.
Our biggest influence is the company we keep. As the learned and elders have always said 'jevo sang evo rang' which means you are most like the company you keep. Associating with people that have similar thoughts, ideas and principles as you enables you to strengthen your beliefs, discard unwanted ones and clear confusion on unknown ones.
