The Toronto Satsang Shibir and Gnanvidhi was organized in Toronto on June 21st to 23rd. Every year Pujyashree Deepakbhai conducts an extensive tour of North America during summer. Toronto being a major hub of Dada’s activities becomes a centre of focus when Pujyashri arrives here.
To attend this grand event, Mahatmas and Mumukshus from other Canadian cities and USA arrive in large numbers.
This year Pujyashree arrived in Toronto after blessing Mahatmas in Brazil. After almost 12 hours of night journey, Pujyashree arrived in Toronto at 4:30AM on Friday June 21st. A large crowd of Mahatmas were eagerly awaiting his arrival and gave a warm welcome to Pujyashree. Pujyashree was ever cheerful, in spite of tiresome journey, and blessed Mahatmas.
