More than 60 devotees from Central Europe gathered for a Satsang shibir entitled ‘Kariye Raaji Ghanshyam’ in Milan on Saturday 9 June 2012. The shibir was also attended by the Consul-General of India for Milan, Mr Verma, and his wife.
The shibir was structured around three key Satsang concepts – mahima, milan and mamattva – to develop a greater understanding of God, fellow devotees and the Satsang fellowship as a whole.
Four sadhus from BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London presided over the shibir, presenting and facilitating an assortment of activities, interactive exercises, bhajans and spiritual discourses.
Following the shibir, the participants also celebrated Dabra Utsav (a family picnic) on Sunday 10 June 2012 at Lake Como, the third largest lake in Italy. All the participants thoroughly enjoyed the two-day event, leaving inspired to build upon their personal and collective Satsang activities in their respective centres.
