    After concluding a series of conventions for children and youths in Orlando, Florida, Swamishri arrived in Toronto to begin celebrations for the formal opening of the Shri Swaminarayan Haveli. Swamishri was received by kishores dancing enthusiastically, after which he formally opened the Swaminarayan Haveli in accordance with Vedic rituals.

    During the Swagat evening assembly, begun traditionally by the singing of dhoon and prarthana, senior saints enlightened devotees. P. Viveksagar Swami spoke about the sanstha's various humanitarian activities while P. Doctor Swami explained the importance of doing Satsang.

    After Swamishri arrived, kishores performed a lively Swagat dance, "Anandno Avsariyo." Thereafter, distinguished guests welcomed Swamishri. Acharya Kishoreji Vyas from the Kanchi Koti Pitham founded by Adi Shankracharya was present in the assembly, and he spoke about Swamishri's efforts to preserve Hindu culture and values.

    Finally, Swamishri, in his blessings, emphasized the rarity of acquiring a human body, which must be utilized in the worship of God. He also spoke about preserving sanskruti, and mentioned that children are the real wealth which must be nurtured. This can all be accomplished through the grace of God and His Saint.
