SSSIO ACT Region was fortunate to be able to hold live Guru Poornima celebrations on Saturday, 24 July 2021 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. On a cold Canberra afternoon, approximately 120 people attended the event after missing out on having the opportunity to celebrate together in person last year.
On Saturday 17th of July the SSSIO WA region volunteered with South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare (SERCUL) to undertake the annual tree planting. The organisation SERCUL brings together the community, business and government in improving the health of local waterways and ecosystems.
On Sunday, 1 August the Sai Young Adults of Australia gathered for an online satsangh, which consisted of an inspirational talk by Jai Reddy, a study circle on one of Swami’s discourses on Guru Poornima and some beautiful darshan videos of Swami. With many regions around Australia still in lockdown, this session proved to be a wonderful panacea for the loss of being unable to go to regular centre bhajan sessions.
