A Celebration of Life in Perth, Australia
The people of Perth were privileged to be able to attend five discourses by Pujya Bhaishri over the weekend of June 6, 2008. Pujya Bhaishri shared his deepest thoughts and visions with the very appreciative audience who had gathered for ‘A Celebration of Life’ on the Perth Esplanade at the kind and generous invitation of Radhika and Pankaj Oswal. Pankaj and Radhika Oswal wanted to share the teachings of Pujya Bhaishri with all the people of Western Australia who had made them feel so welcome since their arrival in Australia seven years ago.
May McGuire and her son, Barry McGuire performed a traditional Welcome to the country ceremony to open this Perth event. Many people at the sessions remarked that they had been fortunate enough to attend Pujya Bhaishri’s sessions whilst overseas but had never imagined it possible to be in his presence in Perth.
The event was very well planned and organized. Translators from India were flown into Perth so that whilst Pujya Bhaishri spoke in Hindi immediate translations in English were made for the non-speaking Hindi audience to understand.
Numerous Indians and Australians enjoyed Pujya Bhaishri’s discourses and expressed their sincere gratitude.
At the end of the Sunday evening session, guests were treated to a magnificent fireworks display delighting the many children who were attending with their parents.
