Creating a divine environment through prathana

Devotional Dances performed by Balika, Kishori and Yuvati members

Honoring mothers of BAPS saints


Sunday, May 29, 2004

    The BAPS Northeast Women's wing held a Women's Convention on May 29, 2004 in the Raritan Exposition Center in New Jersey. The theme of the program titled "Matru Devo Bhava", emphasized the importance of preserving Indian heritage and spiritual values in the society.

    Participants, including Balika, Kishori, Yuvati and Mahila devotees from the eleven mandirs of the BAPS Northeast Region, came together to create a unique spiritual and cultural experience through dances, drama, multimedia presentations, and speeches. The program portrayed a young Indian American girl who had been raised without the understanding of Indian culture and values. The drama, rendered through a dream sequence, depicted her quest to understand the role of exemplary Indian women through the ages. The Drama concluded with the main character developing pride in her identity as an Indian woman and increased spiritual awareness.

    The chief guests, Mrs. Agnihotri, wife of the Ambassador at large Bhishma Agnihotri and Ms. Seema Singh, Ratepayer advocate to the Governor James McGreevey, delivered speeches commending the involvement of women of BAPS in community service through spiritual, social, and educational activities. Mothers of BAPS saints who were present for the program were also honored for their unparalleled contribution to the society.

    This program was truly an example of unity, dedication and devotion of the Women's wing of BAPS.
