Spring 2012 Regional Youth Group Training Session
Members of the Sukyo Mahikari Youth Group of North America gathered at the regional headquarters for the Spring Regional Training held on March 16 and 17, followed by the Youth Group General Assembly on March 18. 31 members from 11 centers participated: Washington D.C., Chicago, Edmonton, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Florida, Phoenix, Pasadena, and Torrance.
The regional training is held with the purpose of training young people to become outstanding individuals as true children of God, who can serve at the forefront as pioneers for the betterment of society.
On the morning of the 16th, the regional director gave guidance on how youth should train themselves in a study class based on the 2012 teaching for the youth, entitled "Young People, Devote Yourselves to the Thousand-day Practice of Giving Light!" The youth group members then dispersed into smaller groups to discuss how they can begin to put this teaching into practice in their daily lives.

As the theme for this training was "Achieving expansion through diligently giving Light," the youth studied the basic body points, how to find special points, and what to say when asked general questions about Sukyo Mahikari Centers for Spiritual Development, among other activities that help us strength the spirit, mind, and body.
On the morning of the 17th, we received our second study class by staff entitled, "Let us become beacons of Light and sincerity, and rise up to give salvation to the entire North American region," to further deepen the understanding of our mission of helping to establish a heavenly civilization by becoming bright and sincere ourselves and thereby attracting other bright souls.
At this year's general assembly on the 18th, we had 3 graduating members and welcomed 9 new youth group members. The youth renewed their resolve to become even more God-centered to fulfill Su God's will and the expectations of Oshienushisama. The energy in the room was vibrant, grand, and intense as a heavy, thunderous downpour of rain accompanied the youth throughout the weekend, which created a mysteriously serious, yet calming mood. This was truly a blessing by Su God, and the regional director told us that at youth group trainings God often sends signs of encouragement to train hard and make devoted efforts, as God truly trusts the youth to carry out the mission of salvation on behalf of all humankind.
With deep gratitude to Su God and the spiritual master and to all those people who worked behind the scenes to organize the regional training and the general assembly, the youth group members humbly ask for the continued guidance and support from the entire North American region to work together to realize the divine plan even one day sooner.
