As part of the Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha's multifarious socio-spiritual activities, Satsang Examinations have been playing a fundamental role in enriching and enlightening thousands of devotees, young and old, with the knowledge of Vedic, cultural and Satsang values. Once the dream of Yogiji Maharaj, was transformed into a reality by H.D.H. Pramukh Swami Maharaj. This activity both spiritually and intellectually encompassing has spread vastly since 1972.
The Satsang Examinations started with just 56 centers at its inception in 1972. Today it has exponentially grown and spread to 1550 centers globally. Thus far, 500,000 people have appeared for the annual twelve-tiered Satsang exams.
The first exam, Bal Satsang-1, caters to children and over a period of twelve years ultimately culminates to Pragna-3, which is equivalent to the post-graduate level. The examinations are prepared, administered, and scored with strict academic standards and disciplines. The exams in India are held annually in July whereas in the overseas centers such as USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Far East, Australia, New Zealand, Middle East and Africa conduct the exams in March each year.
Spiritual wisdom and knowledge are an integral part of a person’s identity. BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha enables children, youth and adults to participate in interactive lessons and examinations to further pursue and grasp an understanding of the wonderful blend of cultural, spiritual, and religious values and principles. The Satsang Examinations or the Satsang Shikshan Pariksha were envisioned by Bhramaswaroop Yogiji Maharaj and later its importance and the regularity in sitting for the exams was brought to life by Pramukhswami Maharaj.
Each year over 60,000 participants worldwide sit for the exams annually. These exams do not test mental capacity or aptitude; rather, they help devotees to engage in daily satsang reading in efforts to broaden their knowledge base about the Swaminarayan Sampraday and history. By this means the devotee will be able to practically apply the concepts learned into the Swaminarayan way of life.
