Weekly Satsang Assemblies


In the Swaminarayan Sampradaya, it is important for celebration and worship to be informed by proper scriptural understanding as revealed by Bhagwan Swaminarayan and the enlightened gurus. To facilitate this, weekly assemblies are held in the Haveli’s main hall and surrounding areas where learned sadhus and experts deliver discourses on the history, theology and practical aspects of the Swaminarayan Sampradaya and Hindu faith. Interspersed with interactive presentations, singing and chanting, and concluded with the arti and communal prayers, the assemblies usually last about two hours on a Saturday evening and cater to a wide range of age groups – from toddlers through to the elderly.

Along with the fundamental theological themes covered consistently around the year, other topics regularly covered include:

  • family values
  • community spirit and serving the less fortunate
  • interfaith harmony and respect
  • channelling the energy, ideas and potential of children and youths
  • caring for and respecting the elderly
  • dangers of substance abuse
  • education
  • healthy living
  • environmental responsibility
  • contributing to the nation
