Over 150 karyakars from Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Portugal, the Republic of Ireland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom gathered in Cascais, Portugal for the fourth Europe Karyakar Shibir from Friday 16 September to Sunday 18 September 2011 in the presence of Ishwarcharan Swami and Pujya Anandswarup Swami.
The shibir began with a delightful Annakut of over 350 dishes being devoutly offered to Harikrishna Maharaj on the first day.
This year’s shibir, entitled ‘Satpurushne Samajvaa’, was themed around gaining a better understanding of the Satpurush. Inspiring talks by Ishwarcharan Swami, Anandswarup Swami, Munivatsal Swami and Yogvivek Swami helped to explain the qualities of the Satpurush and how to better understand his spiritual role.
Over the three days, there were plenty of opportunities for karyakars from different countries to meet and learn from one another. Everyone departed thoroughly inspired and motivated to strengthen their personal satsang and seva in their respective regions.
