From 20th to 26th September 2014, Brahmadarshan Swami, a scholar of Hindu scriptures and an author of many books conducted discourses including a Bhagwat Gita Parayan and presided over a shibir on antarkhoj as well as a Gnansatra at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Brisbane, Australia.
Over 600 devotees and well wishers participated in the sessions, learning about the values of Hinduism revolving around the ideas of ideal parenting, family unity, ethical thoughts and behavior and character building. The devotees learned more about the need and importance of Mandirs in the community, and how mandirs reinforce moral teachings, preserve spiritual values and help in shaping lives.
Brahmadarshan Swami gave fruitful insights on how one can progress on a spiritual path and also on the importance of a Guru. These sessions helped devotees to further strengthen their understanding of the principles of Satsang. Devotees expressed their gratitude towards HH Pramukh Swami Maharaj for blessing the centre with the upcoming Mandir.
