Divine Life Society of South Africa will be broadcasting their Satsangs online until further notice. The Society makes a sincere and earnest appeal to all devotees to participate in the Satsangs whilst in the comfort of their homes, so as to imbibe the rich and sacred benefits of Satsang.
There are 2 options to receive the online Satsang links. One is to subscribe to our YouTube channel, and the other is to join our WhatsApp group, where a programme and a link to the pre-recorded audio stream Satsang will be sent out just before Satsang time.
The Sunlit Path follow-up programme for schools in Newcastle was held on Thursday, 20 February 2020 at the Lincoln Heights Secondary School. Twenty-six learners from the following schools participated: Lincoln Heights Secondary, Panorama Combined School and Hope High School.
In the welcome address, Principal of Lincoln Heights Secondary School, Mr R. Naicker, thanked the Sunlit Path team for their guidance and support in coming together to help learners who are affected by various social ills. He intimated that educators are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of problems experienced by learners. "It is absolutely essential that social partners like yourselves come aboard to assist us in helping our young learners who experience difficulty," he said.
The motivational address drew the learners' attention to the two videos presentation they viewed at the initial workshop in 2019, the importance of the diary and the pledge forms as well as the harmful effects of consuming alcohol, the impact of depression in their lives and the consequences of suicide. The address also focussed on the acronym PASTED, the power of prayer, celibacy, and health & diet. Learners were amazed to learn that 10% of Grade 12 girls fall pregnant in their matric year.
We also painstakingly revisited the importance of the diary/checklist. As part of our coping skills programme, four videos on positive thinking were presented. During the breakaway session, learners responded to questions based on this presentation. It was gratifying to note that two learners mentioned the changes they experienced after adopting methods advocated in the Sunlit Path programme.
We sincerely trust that learners will implement the lessons learnt in their daily lives and we pray that God will grant them the strength to maintain the resolves they made at the Sunlit Path Workshop.
