National Youth Conference 2013 – 2 weeks to go!

How To Make OUR Life HIS Message

Om Sri Sai Ram!

Did you enjoy watching the inspirational National Youth Conference 2013 launch video themed ‘How to Make OUR Life HIS Message’? With Bhagawan's Grace, youth across the UK are feeling ever more excited to share in this most uplifting event, focusing on the sub-themes of ‘Master, Message, and Messenger’. A second video trailer has been put together by our youth, to inspire youth about why we should attend this conference. Please visit our youth conference webpage to see this.

What is the purpose of this conference?

Swami has said "The future of the country depends on the skill and sincerity of the youth. Therefore the necessary enthusiasm and encouragement must be generated among the youth." He says "Give me just one youth strong in character and I can change the destiny of the whole wide world. All my hopes are based on the students, the youth. They are very dear to Me."

This conference will be a great opportunity to unite the youth together as a country, to gain a better and deeper understanding of His teachings based on the sub-themes of Master, Message, Messenger and to generate enthusiasm to take His Mission forward by making OUR Life HIS Message.

The conference is open to all youth aged 18-35 and also to our Group 4 SSE students (under 18) who will soon be transitioning into the youth wing. Please note, those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or an appropriate adult with their parents consent. Please speak to your SSE Coordinator for more details.

After the youth conference, there will be 3 focused areas of service for 2013:

1) Youth in centres and regions to work closely with the service wing in expanding on existing service projects.
2) A youth led service project in India as part of the UK Pilgrimage to Prasanthi Nilayam this year.
3) A National Youth service project in October called “Serve the Planet”, which is a Global Youth Initiative whereby youth from all over the world will be uniting in respective countries to undertake a service project in October as part of Avatar Declaration.

Objectives of the sub-themes Master, Message, Messenger

Workshops, inspirational talks, and question and answer panels will focus on the following objectives at the National Youth Conference:

1. To know our Master better - His Life, His Characteristics, The Ideals and Examples He set, Recognise His Avatar- so as to connect better
2. Recognise His Instruction about how to become Masters ourselves

1. All is Divine - therefore brotherhood, therefore Love All and manifest this via Serve All. You are God- realise this via unity and purity.
2. Recognise how His Life exemplifies His Message.

1. 'Make Your Life My Message' - therefore live His Message in our daily life by practising unity and purity via service, meditation, namasmarana etc
