Rejuvenation believes in the power of knowledge as our Guruma emphasizes upon the true and organic knowledge on every occasion, so to celebrate the divine knowledge we celebrate Basant Panchmi, the start of spring, when Devi Saraswati is meditated upon.
Like we do on most of the occasions we also celebrate it with the kids of the shelter homes and Jagrati. We teach them about the significance of Basant Panchmi and the prominent mark knowledge holds in our lives. The centre showers in the color of yellow and each one thrives with the power of knowledge. We recite Saraswati Vandana and meditate on the goddess of knowledge. As Basant Panchmi is the beginning of the spring festival we meditate on flowers and talk about the love for nature. Games of wisdom are played and performances of talented kids are shown too.
Holi is celebrated at our centre with vivid shades of joy, colours, dances and a plethora of beautiful bhajans. Like the atmosphere filled with innumerable colours, our hearts and lives too, are enlivened by the many shining shades of spiritual joy. This year, we decided to celebrate it with kids, less fortunate in terms of money or relations but blessed with the higher values of life. We went to a shelter home (Motinagar) and a school ( Saraswati Shishu Mandir) to distribute colours and spend some quality time with the kids; and brought home laughter, joy, warmth and tears of ecstasy … 200 pairs of twinkling eyes evaporated whatsoever mist was there on our love bound souls…!
Every year, on the festival of Diwali, our celebration starts a week ahead as our little members set up exhibitions of their beautiful and exceptionally creative handicrafts at the centre for sale. They make earthen diyas, paper bags, candles, show pieces, gift tags and numerous other wonderful items. The proceeds collected are donated to the shelter homes for children. This small act exemplifies true charity, and instils unconditional giving among the children.
Rejuvenation is a spiritual foundation which respects and celebrates all the festival of all the other religion as in the spiritual world, no religion is different, and every religion is same. To embrace the spirit of one-ness we celebrate Christmas in our centre with the members and they all dress up in a happy color of red.
We celebrate Christmas as Young Rejuvenators day. To felicitate all the young ones and to acknowledge their efforts in making this world a better place also to give them credits for their help in growing and shaping Rejuvenation, Aparnaji give them certificates and trophies. Young Rejuvenators perform songs, dance and spread smiles with everyone in the room, there is even a surprise visit by the Santa Claus on the occasion of Christmas. We also include the kids of shelter homes in the celebration and teach them about the significance of Christmas and why is it celebrated, we also distribute sweets and goodies to the children for whom Santa is just a story. Thus, Rejuvenation, in a very beautiful fashion embraces the celebration and it is all happiness and cheers
