Swami ji has great reverence for Indian culture, hence cultural programs are regularly organized during the course of the year. One of the key items of these cultural programs is the street plays. Various contemporary issues plaguing the society are addressed during these plays and a message to discourage such malpractices is conveyed. In the past, various street plays have been organized highlighting the issue of female feticide in patriarchal societies like India. The problem of drug abuse, which is quite prevalent among the youth, is also vehemently discouraged through role plays. Dance, songs, stories etc. constituting the local folklore form an integral part of these culture programs. One of the most popular cultural program is organized on the festival of Lohri (around mid-January), which marks the celebration of winter solstice. During this celebration, offerings are made to a bonfire and various traditional bolis and folk songs are sung. This atmosphere of song and dance in the divine presence of Pujya Swami ji creates a truly mesmerizing experience.
Swami ji believes a healthy body is needed for a healthy mind and soul to exist and prosper. In line with this belief, regular Sports Meets were organized by Swami ji. These meets werer a fun event and involved participation from disciples across gender and age groups. Athletics events conducted included different types of races like the spoon race, one-leg race, relay race etc. Musical chairs game was quite a favorite of all the senior citizens. The tug of war event brought out the competitive spirit in one and all. The event finally culminated after a prize distribution ceremony where the winners were rewarded by Pujya Shri himself.
