Bhagavan completed his South- East Asian Tour, from the 12th of November, on the 29th of November. Bhagavan was accompanied by Gurumaa, Swami Nirgunananda, Swami Sevananda and Mahadev. Bhagavan visited Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and China. Upon receiving earnest requests from His devotees, Bhagavan’s fourth Foreign tour, was yet again, another great success. His advent to these countries marked another new beginning in the history of I.V.S. A new centre was inaugrated in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur) on the 19th of November (also the Foundation Day of I.V.S). This successful trip to South East was celebrated with great pomp and splendor and Bhagavan was duly felicitated. This feat was recognised by many newspapers as well.
