With the inspiration and blessings of Pramukh Swami Maharaj, a one-day Satsang Shibir on Family Harmony was held in Scotland on Sunday 6 May 2012. A total of 52 delegates attended the event at the Loanhead Community Learning Centre in Edinburgh.
The shibir began with a discourse by Tyagprakash Swami on the causes of family discord, which was followed by useful guidance from Yogvivek Swami and Aksharvihari Swami on developing and maintaining family harmony.
The post-lunch interactive session used team-building games to explain the importance of teamwork within the family.
In the concluding session, Yogvivek Swami explained the benefits of maintaining family harmony and engaged in an interesting question-and-answer session.
The participants provided useful and encouraging feedback after the shibir with many requesting similar events to be organised in the future. Some of the specific comments received are shared below:
