folkBased on the teachings of His Divine Grace, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Hare Krishna Mandir, Ahmedabad has been presenting this treasure house of knowledge to youth through Friends Of Lord Krishna (FOLK) in a humble manner since the year 2008. What began as a small endeavour has now transformed itself into a great movement with more than 200 youngsters seriously taking up the teachings of Lord Sri Krishna as imparted in Bhagavad-gita and transforming into an energetic, blissful and glorious experience.

The FOLK program employs highly interactive sessions handled by experienced faculties who have graduated out of premier institutes and who have dedicated their lives as full time missionaries to share the same joy, which they have experienced in their lives. A typical program consists of Vedic wisdom being imparted, which is connected to the current world realities. Solutions are provided to difficult problems that youth have to encounter in their daily lives, such as how to manage stress, how to improve memory and concentration, how to get rid of bad habits, how to excel in life, etc.

State-of-the-art facilities in terms of the classroom infrastructure also ensures that there is never a dull moment for the spirited youngsters and every opportunity is provided to them to showcase their talents and skills for the pleasure of the Lord. The youngsters are also taken through personality enrichment courses that explore their deeper selves and make them more reflective and introspective—a real need in current chaotic times.

There are varieties of opportunities that youth can practically involve themselves such as taking up some services for the pleasure of the Lord, by which one can experience the truth not just theoretically but in reality too. More enthusiastic youngsters take up book distribution, as they are keen to share this wonderful knowledge to other people, who are unaware of this treasure.

You just can’t express with ideal words an ‘EXPERIENCE’ of a lifetime.
