In Canada, Acarya Dayashiilananda Avt., Ac. Parinirvanananda Avt. and LPT brother Nirmal organized three beginner meditation retreats in the greater Toronto area and the Ananda Kanak Master Unit. Their retreats were a successful and important step in the pracar in Canada. Most of the participants in those retreats came from the university classes that Ac. Dayashiilananda Avt. organizes in Ottawa, and classes and contacts from Ac. Parinirvanananda Avt. and brother Nirmal in Toronto.
