Sant Kirpal Singh left India for Germany, the first stop on His 1972-73 World Tour, at 2 a. m., 26 August, 1972. About twenty buses were reportedly hired to carry the Satsangis from Sawan Ashram to the airport so that they could have darshan to the last possible minute. A dais had been built at the airport grounds for 12000 of His children and Sant Kirpal Singh held Satsang right there just before boarding the plane for the West.

On 26 August, Sant Kirpal Singh arrived at Köln airport from where His European tour started followed by Berlin, Nürnberg and Stuttgart. He then visited Switzerland, Italy and France. After four days in Paris Sant Kirpal Singh was scheduled to visit London and in the following days He gave talks in Eastbourne, Liverpool, Birmingham and Belford.

On 19 September, He started from London to America where He visited many American cities like Dallas, Fairfax, Washington, Charlotte, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Calais, Vermont, Chicago, Cincinnati, Denver, Vancouver, Berkeley, San José, Dallas, St. Petersburg and Fort Lauderdale. In Canada He gave several talks at Montreal and Denver.

From 10 to 28 December, Sant Kirpal Singh visited South America. He arrived in Mexico City, gave several talks in Panama City, Quito, Bogota, Cali and Caracas.

His last stop in Rome was originally conceived as a rest stop to break up His long flight home, but Sant Kirpal Singh gave direction otherwise and two more public talks were given there before His final arrival back in Delhi. Disciples travelled from all over Europe – Germany, France, Austria, Great Britain, Greece, Malta – just to have a final few hours with Sant Kirpal Singh.
