Youth Activities at Manav
The Manav Seva Mandir youth group is a
Hindu family oriented group dedicated to spiritual living and
learning. The purpose of this group is to explore and embrace
non-sectarian Hindu philosophy for the way of life. Study of
the scriptures like the Bhagvad Gita and Mahabharat forms the
core of activities. The Group meets on the first, third, and
fifth Sundays of the month for the study of scriptures and
philosophical grounding. We not only discuss the meaning of
these scriptures but also how they can be applied in our day
to day lives.
However, the activities are not just limited to study of
scriptures. The group also meets periodically throughout the
year for projects related to selfless service. It is actively
involved at least once or twice a year in charitable projects.
In the past two years we have made blankets and breakfast bags
for the homeless on Hindu New Years Day. Aside from that, the
children of the group have also visited several organizations
dedicated to serving the less fortunate and needy.
The group is also a large family (Vasudev Kutumbakam). We meet
for social and fun events as well. The youth group takes pride
in sharing moments of playfulness and happiness with everyone
who is part of our family. We organize a youth camp every year
either on-site or off-site, which is a day of reflection and
fun activities such as movie night, garba and folk dances,
sports events, etc.
The goal of this group is to cultivate an exemplary life for
the Hindu community and demonstrate through knowledge, wisdom,
and experience the values that unites us all as Hindus and as
human beings. There is no discrimination in participation
based on race, culture or ethnicity. We welcome everyone with
open arms who brings an open mind to experience divinity by
cultivating and demonstrating divine qualities within
ourselves. We invite all of you visiting today to come and
join us to be a part of our happy family.
Jai Sri Krishna
