Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan hold annual Jeevan Ghadtar (Life Essentials) Conventions in all the major centres around the world. These conventions, inspired by His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree are educational and social events to promote unity, morality and cultural values within society, between people of all ages.
As well as gaining spiritual and cultural awareness, and moral values, key personal skills such as building confidence, public speaking, team working, respecting others, etc. are also taught. Activities are held to enhance and develop the characters and skills of all the participants, who have ranged in age from 4 to 90. The age range itself serves to strengthen the links between the generations, and to bridge the gap between the young and old – building trust and respect between all.
The activities include sporting events, religious ceremonies and routines, and team-based activities.
