Bhakti Vedanta Youth Trust, Mayapur organized a Summer Camp for Mayapur community’s children on 20th and 21st, June. The camp gave the children an opportunity to come together and engage in spiritual practices like chanting, hearing, Harinaam, aratis and of course, honoring wonderful prasadam feasts. The children were enlightened with spiritual knowledge through lectures by HH Bhakti Vidya Purna Maharaj, HH Bhakti Purusottama Maharaj and HG Sankarsan Nitai Prabhu.
On 20th evening, the children did a parikrama of the campus doing Harinaam sankirtan. HG Venudhari Prabhu and some other brahmacari devotees also joined the sankirtan. After that they attended Sandhya Arati in the temple. Next day morning, there was Mangal arati and japa in Gita Bhavan. Later in the afternoon, there was ‘Sloka competition’. Children were organized in groups and read out English translation of a verse or song. They had to quickly identify the original verse and recite it.
The event ended on 21st evening with a group picture of all participating children. Both the children and their parents seemed very happy with the camp.
