Region 5 - Young Adults Program: Active Service

This month Region 5 had an ‘active service’ Young Adults Program (YAP). A few youth from Manchester and Bradford arranged to visit an elderly care home in Manchester; to simply enjoy the company of the elderly in the care home and assist the staff with lunchtime duties. This was done in unity with Greater Manchester Sai Centre elders who were happy to join the YAP.

During the YAP we had the opportunity to hear the life stories of some of the residents. This is always an eye opening experience and feedback from the youth was that it can be quite an emotional experience. It is an opportunity for us to show patience, love, compassion and understanding towards the elderly in our community who have made the place where we live, what it is today. We left with a sense of gratitude to our elders and admiration for what they have experienced in life.

We pray that Swami continues to open our hearts and minds to new experiences. With these experiences we can strengthen our heart-to-heart connection with new people. We can come to realise how our lives are entwined in so many ways, and feel the sense of unity. With this unity we pray our love grows.

With Sai Love,
Nishal Govindji
