In the first of a series of regional adhiveshans that will take place throughout Australia 22 kishores and kishoris from Adelaide participated in an adhiveshan on 19 August 2012. The youngsters had dedicated months to prepare for the various competitions by memorizing the basic concepts of satsang, shloks, saakhis, Vachanamrut quotations, Swamini Vatos and the fundamental principles of Hinduism.
The adhiveshan was divided into two components which included an oral test on most of the syllabus and a written test on certain frequently asked questions. Even though some of the youths were participating for the first in an adhiveshan the judges were impressed by the high standard of the presentations. The youths gained considerable knowledge through their efforts and found the whole experience extremely enriching.
