The Sant Nirankari Mission held a Samagam on the theme of human unity in the capital city of Denmark, Copenhagon on April 20, 2013. Beside local devotees, several delegates came from Norway, Sweden and Portugal also.

Presiding over the Samagam, Rev H.S. Upashak from UK said that such Samagams seek to show the right path to every human being to make life happy. He said that all human virtues flow from God-knowledge. Once God dwells in mind, our thoughts become pure automatically. The feelings of love, compassion and cooperation are strengthened automatically.

Rev Upashak Ji said that God-realisation is also essential to understand the real meaning of religion. In fact it turns man's mind into a temple.

Frankfurt is an international Business city, where on May 4, 2013, for the first time in the history of the Mission in Germany, Human Unity Day was celebrated. It was an International gathering that took shape, with devotees coming from many countries in Europe including Italy, UK, Spain, Austria and almost from all over Germany. With the blessings of His Holiness Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj all those who gathered shared the fragrances of love and humanity which are the core teachings of the Mission.

Leaders of many organizations not only participated on the day but were involved in organization of the event which followed the pattern of the NIS (Nirankari International Samagam) which took place in the UK last year.

Rev HS Upashak Ji presided over the event who came from UK especially for this occasion landing on May 3 in Frankfurt and blessing many seekers of truth.

The Satsang commenced with a live Kirtan Program recital from Gurparsad Jatha in which a number of German ladies contributed by playing some instruments. Rev Balbir Sehra Ji, General Sec. of SNM Germany introduced all the participants being responsible for the duty of the Stage Secretary on this day offering a warm welcome to one and all. During his spiritual speech, Rev Upashak Ji explained the message of His Holiness that we should all live in peace and eliminate any feeling of hatred or violence that we may have within our hearts for anybody. The important he suggested was that we must start giving love to those who are near us in order to obtain some return ourselves. It is not possible to change the world but we can try to change the mind of the human being. Ordinarily, we can create a great neighbourhood but with the benefit of spiritual development we create brotherhood.

This Event was very interesting for German People because all the speakers used the German or English language. Some speeches that were in Hindi, Punjabi or Tamil were directly translated into German via live translation as there was a large local contingent and this was needed for their benefit.
