Culture and arts
Description of charity's activities and outcomes:
Regular classes were conducted in Yoga, Meditation and Scriptural Studies. Children's classes were held for moral and spiritual development. Spiritual Retreats were conducted which gave participants a chance to come out of their busy life and reflect and transform more deeper and spiritual aspects of their personality. Annual functions in our centres in different states promoted cultural activities with a focus on development of the personality and the spirit. Personal Counselling, as and when required helped relevant persons. We also held an International Yoga Conference in 2016.Through these activities and through man-making, character building education, we reinforce our aims of spreading the idea of the potential divinity of every being and how to manifest it through every action and thought, spreading peace through the society and alleviate human suffering, treating all our actions as worship of God, and service to man as service to God.
