Erica Desai is a part of the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha, which is a spiritual and service-oriented organization that is dedicated to improving the quality of societal life through promoting growth in individuals and fostering the Hindu culture and ideals of faith, unity, and selfless service.
“Culture and heritage are a distinct part of the identity of an individual and a community. The BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha hosts a variety of initiatives to help Indians stay connected with their cultural roots. The Swaminarayan Akshardham in New Delhi and Gandhinagar stand as a testament to the 10,000 year old culture of the Indian subcontinent and will remain a tribute for future generations. Various exhibitions and special Mega Festivals bring India to the doorsteps of Indians living both geographically and ideologically outside of India. Mystic India, the first large format film ever produced about India, transported the mysticism of India to the hearts and homes of millions worldwide. BAPS mandirs preserve ancient Hindu traditions. They are a celebrated example of majestic Indian architecture and promote a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle prescribed by the ancient sages. Through BAPS’ many cultural initiatives, millions of people can experience the beauty of India and its traditions.”
Erica Desai is proud to be a part of this Hindu organization and spread her faith as well as her sense of service, love and unity to others. She is also happy to achieve this through a volunteer effort that compliments her own dedication to serving others and helping strengthen her community.
