The catastrophic Tsunami that afflicted much of Southern Asia last Sunday has brought pain and sorrow to millions of people of the region. Their pain and sorrow must be shared by us all.
Thousands have lost their lives. Millions more have lost their homes and livelihood. We must help everyone re-build and bring normality back to their lives.
We are all children of the supreme Lord. As such, we must join together and help our brothers and sisters during their time of need. This is the biggest humanitarian disaster the world has ever seen. It requires a relief effort of an equal magnitude.
Please help in whichever way you can. The help of you alone is welcome. The help of many is needed. Please encourage others to help. Let us all pray for eternal peace, for all the lost lives. May the almighty Lord Swaminarayan provide the strength and courage to the survivors.
