Mayor Welcomes Hindu Pontiff

CASEY, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA, October 30, 2015 (India Link): Mick Morland, Mayor of the City of Casey, was so taken by Hindu pontiff Shree Shree Sugunendra Teertha Swamiji when they met at Keysborough a few months ago, that he promised to throw a function in his honor when he next visited Australia. True to his word, he accorded the Swamiji a mayoral reception when he returned to Melbourne in early October.

Swamiji was recognised for his efforts towards world peace and his achievements through the years in the Council Chambers of the City of Casey Civic Centre. In attendance were Councillors of the City of Casey and many from the Indian community, for whom it was an honor to be in the presence of the head of the Puttige Matha (monastic establishment) in Udupi, Karnataka.
