The importance of the Indian community, its growing partnership in national and international development and its unique characteristic of unity in diversity will be the topic of an address by a learned member of the Diaspora.

Saumitra Gokhale, Global Coordinator for the Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh, an organisation dedicated to promoting Hindu values for the welfare of all of humanity, will speak on ‘Anekatta Mein Ekataa’  or ‘Unity in Diversity of Kiwi Bharatiya Communities’ on Saturday, March 2, 2024 at 10 am the BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir, located at 21 Barrhead Place, Avondale, Auckland.

The public meeting is open to all but guests should note that the car park facility could be limited within the Complex but off-street parking may be available.

The visit of Mr Gokhale to New Zealand marks an important phase in the history of the Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh, which has been working for the welfare of the communities for the past 28 years, without seeking publicity.

The Sangh has seven chapters in New Zealand including Auckland, Hamilton, Napier, Hastings, Palmerston North, Wellington and Christchurch. In Auckland, it operates four branches, one each in Pakuranga (Sardar Patel Shakha), Lynfield (Vivekananda Shakha), Kelston (Azad Shakha) and Glenfield (Saraswati) Shakha.
