December 25-31, Malke. The Children camp started with usual fun and frolic but this time the number of children was a little less due to certain schedule changes in various schools. Almost 40 children between 8 to 14 years participated in the camp but there were almost equal number of elders too who wanted to be blessed with the divine presence of Shri Maharaj Ji and almost almost 15 teens who could not resist their temptation of joining in this camp due to their previous experiences or information from other’s experiences.
For this sake there were three different schedules this time, one for the kids and one for the teens and another for rest of the people. With the help of devoted volunteers such as Baldev Singh, Basant Joshi, Bhavna & Meena Mishra, Baljit Kaur and all the ashram inmates this hectic schedule was carried with utmost care and concern. For kids there were Surya Kriya, Yogasanas, Music, Mind Games, Chanting, Life Skills training, Introduction to Spirituality and lots of fun. For teens there were Surya Kriya, Asana, Pranayama, Sanjivani Kriya, Agni Kriya, Cleansing (Shatkarma) Kriyas, Discussions and debates. For the others there were these sadhnas and rest of the time was utilized in sewa. Besides, personal guidance was provided on demand to everyone.
Every afternoon a combined meeting was scheduled with Maharaj Ji where different aspects of life were discussed in a manner that all the children can grasp them easily. In this interactive session children cleared their doubts and received answers to their questions. the session was concluded with funny stories, jokes, mimicry and lots of laughter. Various topics discussed there shall soon be posted as articles on the website.
On the concluding day many activities and competitions were organized. Below are some glimpses-
