As a part of their two-month vicharan across North America, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree and sants visited the many disciples of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan residing in Canada from Thursday, July 15th, 2010 through Sunday, July 17th, 2010. During this time, Acharya Swamishree and sants performed padhramis at the homes of disciples and spread the supreme teachings of Lord Shree Swaminarayan across the Toronto region. On Friday, scripture recitals and maha pooja were held, and Acharya Swamishree showered His divine blessings upon the disciples. For Saturday, the disciples of Canada had put together a cultural program, which took place at a local community hall. At the program, Acharya Swamishree showered His divine blessings, several honorary dignitaries and guests attended to receive Acharya Swamishree’s darshan and to share a few words, young disciples performed devotional dances, and sants and disciples performed kirtan-bhakti. Before Acharya Swamishree departed for New Jersey on Sunday, a Gurupoornima celebration and a celebration for Acharya Swamishree’s 68th birthday were held as well. Although Acharya Swamishree and sants were in Canada for only a few short days, they were extremely pleased with the progress the mandal has made since the establishment of Shree Swaminarayan Siddhant Sajivan Mandal Canada in 2005, and they were delighted to see the very evident love and affection the disciples have for Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa.
