A Zone 2 Pre-World Conference in Colombia was held at a catholic school and monastery in Bogotá, on February 28th and March 1st 2015. More than 200 SSIO members from Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina, Colombia, USA, and El Salvador gathered together to exchange ideas and share about their spiritual journeys. Inspiring presentations were given by Dr. Narendranath Reddy, Chairman, Prasanthi Council; Leonardo Gutter, Member, Prasanthi Council; and John Behner, Chairman, Zone 2. Participants experienced a deeper understanding of Bhagawan’s message of love and service, which they planned to share after returning to their home countries.
The SSIO of Colombia arranged a public meeting in the “Centro Empresarial y Recreativo, El Cubo” auditorium on Monday, March 2nd. Due to a forecast of torrential rain and also being a working day, the event was expected to be poorly attended. But, to everyone’s surprise, more than 700 people, most of them not members of the SSIO, braved the inclement weather to attend the public meeting and hear Bhagawan’s message of love, selfless service, and the practice of spirituality.
