This is a beautiful story of how one humble sincere man started a movement in a faraway place. I had read his story before, but it was nice to see it again.

But now a large number of Africans have found Sanatana Dharma. It also makes sense as a lot of Africans can see similarities in Hindu rituals and their old tribal religious rituals.
