Peer pressure, is one of the
most powerful forces that leads youths in one direction or
another. Unfortunately, most forms of peer pressure have negative
consequences, leading to a life full of vices.
To address these crucial issues,
the entire morning session was centered around helping kishores
and kishoris deal with peer pressure. Skits and real-life
incidents demonstrated the harmful effects of succumbing to
this type of pressure. Following this, saints offered valuable
guidance on how to remain firm in one's convictions in the
face of peer pressure.
After Swamishri heard about
the pressures youths deal with, he emphasized the importance
of maintaining strong faith in God and His Saint. Their commandments
lead to purity of the mind and body, and although people may
not see it, they are for our best.
