Satsang in the Asia-Pacific (Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia) region was initiated with the blessings of Param Pujya Yogiji Maharaj and established by Param Pujya Pramukh Swami Maharaj during his three visits to the region in 1984, 1996 and 2002. During his last trip to the region in 2002, Param Pujya Pramukh Swami Maharaj established three mandirs in Perth, Sydney, and Auckland.

Since then, due to the regular vicharan of BAPS swamis (including respected sadguru and senior swamis), Satsang in the Asia-Pacific region has grown immensely. Today, there are five large mandirs in the five major cities of Australia; four mandirs in New Zealand with a fifth under construction, and one in Hong Kong and Singapore each.  With a total of 12 mandirs in the region and plans for more in the future, Satsang continues to flourish in the Asia-Pacific region under the guidance and blessings of Param Pujya Mahant Swami Maharaj.  And now for the first time since 2002, the Pragat Satpurush will be gracing Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong (China) and Bangkok (Thailand) to further nurture, guide, inspire and bless Satsang in these countries.  Most notably, for the first time ever, the Pragat Satpurush will be celebrating Pushpadolotsav outside of India on 2 March 2018 in Sydney, Australia. 

Please note that Param Pujya Mahant Swami Maharaj has given guidance that this inaugural Asia-Pacific vicharan is only for the devotees living in the Asia-Pacific region.

Swamishri has given divine labh to all devotees in Africa, North America, UK and Europe as well as in India over the past year. Thus, all devotees from these regions are humbly requested not to visit the Asia-Pacific centers during Swamishri’s vicharan in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand. Because the centers in the region are smaller, it will not be possible for these centers to cope with and take care of visitors from outside the region. So, as a developing region in Satsang, Swamishri has expressed his wish to focus on further developing Satsang in the Asia-Pacific region through his vicharan there.

By following Swamishri’s agna, we will earn his rajipo and be a part of realizing Swamishri’s vision for Satsang in Asia-Pacific.
