A total of more than 4,500 participants from about 1,400 families from across Australia and New Zealand participated in the Shatabdi Ghar Sabha project.
As part of the Brahmaswarup Pramukh Swami Maharaj centenary celebrations, the project encouraged family bonding based on the advice and agna of Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
The Shatabdi Ghar Sabha project was conducted at each BAPS center by karyakars inviting one or more families to their homes to participate in a ghar sabha. The sabhas focused on three important topics: teaching values to children, God is the all-doer and seeing the good in others. The sabhas gave the invited families an insight into how a regular ghar sabha enhances family harmony. Invited participants expressed their approval of the concept, acknowledging that it is an effective way of bringing families together. Many pledged to conduct a regular ghar sabha with their own family.
