Acharya Swamishree Maharaj departed from Mumbai and reached Australia’s Perth on 1st June 2017. Perth is the capital and largest city of the Australian state of Western Australia, and the fourth-most populous city in Australia. With the blessings of Acharya Swamishree Maharaj, many disciples have come to reside in this city, and Shree Swaminarayan Sidhant Sajivan Mandal West Australia has been established. Disciples gather routinely in the home of a disciple, where a ‘ghruh’ (household) Mandir has been established under the auspices of the Mandal.

Acknowledging the requests and humble prayers of the disciples of Perth, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj visited their homes and held scripture recitals on their behalf. Sants and disciples visited many of the region’s famous sites. Acharya Swamishree Maharaj toured on the Mandurah Lake, giving darshan and blessing the indigenous wildlife of Western Australia.

The vicharan in Perth formed the first sector of the Sadbhav Amrut Yatra. Consequently, the disciples of Perth took the opportunity to perform devotional songs and dances to please the Lord and in celebration of Acharya Swamishree Maharaj’s 75th manifestation year. A special event was also held for this occasion, which ended in communal devotional dancing, making this short stay in Perth a truly unforgettable experience for all present.

From Perth, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj travelled to Melbourne on Sunday 4 June 2017, continued to Sydney on Tuesday 6th June and then reached Brisbane on Thursday 8 June 2017. This was the last of Australia’s cities to be blessed by Acharya Swamishree Maharaj during this Yatra. Disciples living all over the different parts of Australia gathered for Acharya Swamishree Maharaj’s darshan and blessings.
