Gurukula represented at the Golden Jubilee Celebrations in the Philippines
The Founder of Gurukula, Shrii P. R. Sarkar visited the Philippines in 1968 for the first time. The golden jubilee celebration took place in March 2018 to honor his visit, during which he laid the foundations of a movement for social transformation and spiritual development. Kulapati of Ananda Marga Gurukula, Dada Shambhushivananda, was the chief guest at the celebrations. Celebrations included youth programs, public talks, nagar kiirtan (kiirtan through the streets), cultural programs and a youth leadership training seminar (see separate article).
Besides this youth training seminar, about twenty-five youths also learned meditation and over fifty youths presented an inspiring and educative cultural evening. Fifty youths were awarded “Pillars of the World” Medals by the guests of honour.
With thanks to the sponsors, the youth also planted fifty Calamansi plants.
