A total of 3,000 devotees attended the shibirs held in Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and other centers throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Based on the theme, ‘Gruh Shanti no Rajmarg – Ghar Sabha’ (Royal Path to Family Harmony – Family Assembly), the one-day shibirs focused on how a regular Ghar Sabha (Family Assembly) can lead to peace, harmony and happiness within families.
The shibirs featured informative and insightful presentations by swamis, videos, skits and other activities that explained the essential role of conducting a regular Ghar Sabha in developing family unity, sustaining traditional values and fostering mutual understanding between individuals. The presentations also included practical guidance on how to incorporate Ghar Sabha into one’s family schedule to get all family members involved. During a question and answer session, the swamis gave effective solutions on how devotees can surmount the challenges they face in doing Ghar Sabha.
The shibirs also included the video blessings of Pramukh Swami Maharaj and Mahant Swami Maharaj, in which they emphasized the necessity and benefits of regularly conducting Ghar Sabha. In addition, devotees who had already been doing Ghar Sabha shared their experiences and narrated the benefits that they have enjoyed as a result of conducting Ghar Sabha in their homes.
