O Citizens! Live in harmony and concord. Be organised and co-operative. Speak with one voice and make your resolutions with one mind. As your ancient saints and seers, leaders and preceptors have performed their duties righteously, similarly, may you not falter in executing your duties.
Vedic Pratinidhi Sabha and Arya Samaj of Australia Incorporated was founded in March 1995 at 3 Samuel Street, Lidcombe, New South Wales, Australia by a group of enthusiastic followers of Swami Dayanand Saraswati’s principles and with a view to keep the Samaj out of local politics.
Among the pioneers were Pt S. N. Hari Prasad, Prem Chand, Mehar Chand, Pt Awindra Prasad, Anjnish Prasad, Prem Parmanand, Shakuntala Parmanand, Purohita Prabha Sharma, Vijay Narayan, Uma Narayan, Suneel Roy and Sashi Roy.
Pt S. N Hari Prasad was the founding President of the Samaj. Currently Shri Subhash Rughani is the President and Shrimati Arun Narayan the General Secretary.
Vedic Pratinidhi Sabha and Arya Samaj of Australia Incorporated with its limited resources is doing a remarkable job in promoting the teachings of Swami Dayanand Saraswati. Very educational and thought provoking parvachans delivered by both children and adults at satsangs have been very enlightening and continue to be a source of learning and spiritual fulfilment for the congregation.
The VPSASA observes all Hindu festivals; however the Arya Samaj Sthapna Divas and Deepavali are celebrated on a grand scale and have always been very successful. On such celebrations, a highly educated prominent person is invited to be the chief guest.
The VPSASA has also kept the tradition to help those in need in time of disaster. This year the VPSASA has contributed in cash and kind to Tsunami disaster victims.
