Mr. Hasu Devani and Mr. Chandu Sheth were welcomed by His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree Maharaj with a traditional Indian turban, garland and a shawl. Ms. Meera Pandit, Mrs. Geeta Devani and Ms. Ravneet Sehmi too were welcomed with a shawl and a garland. Mr. Hasu Devani then enlightened the congregation about what the Asian Foundation is, what it does and what it aims to achieve.
HDH Acharya Swamishree Maharaj blessed our dear guests and said, “It’s a privilege to be born as a human. And to honor this form of birth, our duty is to divert and develop our strength and become philanthropists. The best person is one who selflessly wishes well for others, someone who doesn’t look towards their well being and extends their hand to assist those in need. And one can only succeed in conducting such a civil service, if you let the Lord lead the way and act as per His will.”
