Swami is the Guiding Force

For the last nine months, the youth are actively involved in the following Seva activities by the grace of Swami. Following is the summary of youth activities:

  • Seva

    • Frequent Seva at home for the elderly: the youth visit the elderly home every week and help them during their breakfast and lunch. They engage them with small talk and going for walks in their neighborhood.

    • During important days like Christmas and Mother’s Day, the youth team up with devotees to celebrate these events in a special way in the elderly home by starting with special breakfast, singing Christmas songs and old famous Dutch songs and ending with a small token of love to each resident of the home. The elderly home consists of about 60 residents.

    • Telephone Satsang: one elderly person who is bedridden gets a telephone Satsang of about a one-hour duration, two to four times a month.

The youth are leading this activity by digitizing the library and keeping the books according to categories. By Swami’s grace, there are now about 5,000 books which have come from various places as donations.
