A one-day Youth Convention was held at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Auckland, New Zealand, on Saturday, 16 July 2011. Based on the theme “Spiritual Quotient”, the convention attracted more than 130 youths from Auckland, Hamilton, Rotorua and Christchurch.
The convention focused on how a career-oriented generation can better channel their time and resources into developing their spiritual quotient. Through interactive presentations and breakout sessions, youths learnt about an array of topics: positive thinking, power of faith, the role of intelligence, emotional quotient and practical aspects of spirituality, such as, daily rituals. A group discussion based on the story of Eklavya encouraged everyone towards applying positive living principles in their daily lives.
Many youths were inspired to live a more spiritual life based on satsang values and earn the blessings of Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
