    1. Singapore: 4 lectures were held in Singapore. In the first lecture the curious were very interested in knowing more and most of them wanted to attend the future lectures. One of the curious shared that he had attended the lecture as it was told by his instructor and was reading the SSRF website regularly. Another curious requested for a one on one satsang to understand the Personality defect removal process before she joins the Orientation satsang. She shared she is experiencing every bit of the destiny that SSRF mentioned and she was grateful to know about SSRF.  In the last lecture seekers faced obstacles of not getting the lecture hall on time thus having to shift to another location but overall learning from the situation was that when there is a crisis, then our true self comes out and through Personality Defect Removal process and by taking God’s help, we are able to face any crisis and come out as a winner. One curious had to leave for doctor’s appointment mid way through the lecture, but had so much desire that she came to a SSRF seeker’s residence after the lecture and understood the whole Personality Defect Removal process and how to write mistakes. She mentioned that she wanted to learn this process to make her life worthwhile and have meaning to life, to improve as a person so that her son gets some learning from her behaviour because as of now, due to defects she felt she is not doing justice as a mother. She wanted to do spiritual practice to change herself. One of SSRF seeker’s spouse was not doing any spiritual practice however she got many spiritual experiences throughout this lecture period and now has started doing spiritual practice with a lot of enthusiasm.
    2. Malaysia (Johar Bahur) : 4 lectures were conducted in Johar Bahur. In one of the lectures, one curious was enthusiastic and smiling since the moment she came inside the lecture hall. She came with a writing pad and pen on her own. When asked how she had brought a pen and notebook to take notes, she said that she has come for learning and since later she may forget the main points, she wanted to make a note of important points. She called her friend and her husband to come for the lecture also.
    3. Indonesia (Bali): Here, SSRF had the most number of attendees for the lectures. For the first lecture, attendees came from many different backgrounds such as housewives, government employees, Balinese priests, devotees of other organizations, police officers and former Indonesian deputy Minister of Economics. A police officer shared how he appreciated SSRF’s mission to share important knowledge about ancestors as ancestor worship is widely practiced in Bali. In the second lecture, a leader of a centre was among the attendees and he was supportive of SSRF’s mission. He commented that people are in need of spiritual knowledge as they are currently more focused on the ritual aspect. He encouraged SSRF to do more lectures in Bali or other cities in Indonesia. After the lecture, he asked SSRF seekers to use one of the centre’s cars as they (seekers) needed to travel out of town for the upcoming lectures. The last 2 lectures were held in a local high school and Gurukul (A residential school system prevalent in ancient India, where teaching on all areas of life, including spiritual practice was done by Gurus or Sages), so most of the attendees were students, teachers (total around 230). The lecture topic was about problems in life due to Karma or Destiny. It was inspiring to hear from the principle (of Gurukul) that it is the only Gurukula in Indonesia and they’re trying to give education as per scriptures. One highlight and experience from this lecture was that many students were taking notes when the lecture was presented. One student commented that SSRF presentation explaining the science of spirituality is nice and unique.
