Throughout the year, members of the Yuva Yoga Mitra Mandal offered their talents, goodwill and artistic flair to decorating the programs at Ganga Darshan. Thanks to their dedication and hard work, Jyoti Mandir, Yajnashala, Chhaya Samadhi, Satyam Vatika and the Main Building Lawn looked festive and merry on these occasions.
Members of the YYMM organized and distributed the items for the relief of Bariarpur village which was destroyed in a fire in April. Packing bags, loading trucks and distributing in a joyful manner with kirtan and laughter brought smiles on the faces of those who had lost everything in that fateful night.
On 2nd October, members of the YYMM were invited to Ganga Darshan to celebrate the Foundation Day of the movement. In the Yoga Vidya pandal, Swamiji and residents met the yuvas who presented a stunning performance of yogasanas. Sannyasi Vivekchandra gave a report about the various activities and achievements of YYMM since its foundation, and other members told of their learning and experiences as a member. It was a touching account of how YYMM changed their lives and understanding. Swamiji inspired them to continue with yoga and seva and to become useful members of their community. After the program, they were guided through Satyam Yoga Prasad and left the venue filled with determination and goodwill.
