Transcript of An Idol Inspiration

iBST Skills 2012 An Idol Inspiration He is the leader of the global BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha. President of BAPS He was appointed by Shastriji Maharaj
in 1950, in Amdi Vali Pol. I wanted to show people that Swamishri really is the idol inspiration for all of us. By showing many of his accomplishments, we can see how he has gone above and beyond when helping not just his own devotees but all of humanity as well. This should inspire us to follow in his footsteps and do the same. Reason for Choosing this Topic He has tirelessly visited more than 15,500 villages, regardless of time, bad weather, discomfort and ill health, for the benefit of mankind! Vicharan In 1985, in spite of illness, he had done vicharan
in 95 villages in 20 days. In the village of Vasad,
Swamishri sanctified 121 homes from 9:00 a.m.
till 3:30 p.m. despite having a fever of 102
degrees Fahrenheit. He has initiated educated youths into the sadhu-fold for lifelong service to society. Initiator of Sadhus He has initiated over
850 youths into

this ideal, Swamishri endeavors
for the good of others. Video - An Idol Inspiration As you can see, Swamishri has accomplished so much in his lifetime of 92 years. Conclusion He has gone out of his way to help his devotees, the poor and unfortunate, and all of mankind. Everything that he has done, from the little things, like cleaning up the bathroom, to the big things, like building Delhi Akshardham, should prove to be an inspiration to us and encourage us to leave our own footprints on the world.
