Three Purposes of BYMM

Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati

The first purpose is to imbibe samskaras, to develop a cultured, virtuous personality. If we are able to develop a cultured, virtuous personality then that will be our attainment in life. To feel happy and content that we are cultured and virtuous is something that will uplift us for all times to come.

Swavalamban: Independence, the ability to stand on our own two feet is the second aspiration of the Bal Yoga Mitra Mandal. and it is very important, because we have to allow our creativity to manifest. The ability to take our own decision and to know that it is correct and to stand by it is swavalamban.

Sanskriti: The third purpose is the love for our own culture. Any culture in the world must have two aspects, the material and the spiritual. To imbibe the material and the spiritual aspects of our culture, enriches our life, and gives greater understanding of the relationship that we have with nature, with our society and with God.
