Pandava Sena

Sunday, May 1st, 2022

Pandava Sena are the youth group of the Bhaktivedanta Manor. Their aim is to make spirituality more relevant and interesting for the youth, so they can live a life less ordinary. Pandava Sena aims to provide young people the unique opportunity to become the best that they can be, on a spiritual and material level. They connect like-minded souls to the timeless philosophy of the Vedas, so that young people can grow and thrive in the ever-changing and somewhat chaotic 21st century world we live in.

You can meet the Pandava Sena every Sunday at Bhaktivedanta Manor, between 5pm-7:30pm with an interactive event, including talks & games. To find out more, please contact Shyamali (07902 639656) or Gopinath (07716 455116)

“Good association can help make any service incredible”

Raam Gor, 18, is the current President of ISKCON Pandava Sena.

He had been attending Pandava Sena events since he was a child, but he began getting involved with active service from the age of 12, helping to set up outreach projects for the under 15s.

“The aim of the PSena is to instigate a spiritual revolution in society, ” Raam explained. “It aims to pitch spiritual life in an unconventional and dynamic way for young people, helping make our lives less ‘ordinary’”.

“The people that you get to spend time with and serve with is what motivates me the most. Good association can help make any service incredible, even for someone as lazy as me! A lot of my enthusiasm actually comes from the energy of others.”

Get involved

Uncommon Sense (11-13 year-olds)

Uncommon Sense is a dynamic event held on a fortnightly basis for students aged 11-13 at Avanti House Secondary School. The events consist of thought-provoking discussions on topics such as reincarnation, vegetarianism and karma with like-minded people and events aren’t complete without a rocking Kirtan (spiritual meditation) and sumptuous prasadam (sanctified food). The skills that you develop throughout these sessions and the friendships that you make will keep your enthusiastic and prepared for every challenge life can throw at you.

Sena Nights Live (14-16 year-olds)

SNL is a fortnightly house programme aimed at encouraging and deepening young peoples’ knowledge and practice of spirituality and really broadening their mental horizons. The sessions are aimed towards students aged 14 to 16 and incorporate interactive discussions, mesmerising Kirtans (spiritual meditation) and delicious food. The friendships you make through these events last a lifetime and the thought provoking topics will encourage and inspire you to think outside the box to really live an enlivened fulfilled lifestyle.

Project X (16-18 year-olds)

This is the place to be on a Friday night. This fortnightly event ensures that you start your weekend on a spiritual high. The karma-free food is always on point and the philosophical discussion based on ancient yet practical Vedic wisdom gets everyone all deep and introspective. We conclude with musical mantra mediation — it’s a real feast for the soul. And at the end, we leave ready to take on the world with a fresher, more spiritual outlook on life.
