Charitable Activities and Outreach by YSS Noida Ashram (2018)

Swami Smarananandaji motivates students from YSS Noida Ashram's Charitable Coaching Classes

Swami Smarananandaji, General Secretary of Yogoda Satsanga Society of India (YSS), interacted with 44 students of the Charitable Coaching Classes (9 to 12) run by YSS Noida Ashram. Ten of the teachers were also present during this interaction.

Swamiji told students that this was the “monsoon season” of their lives: a time when they can plant and nurture the seeds of a successful and meaningful future. This period would last for only a limited number of years. He urged them to work hard. Giving examples from his own life, Swamiji stressed that they must focus their whole attention on their studies, and on their career goals, through an optimum utilization of their time and opportunities available to them.

At the close of talk, Swamiji distributed prasad to the students and teachers who were present.
