Lady seekers Miss Tejal Patrikar and Mrs. Anagha Joshi on behalf of Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay, with a spiritual level of 61 % expressed gratitude unto Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale at a function held to celebrate His 77th birthday. At that time the eyes of Miss Tejal Patrikar were closed and those of Mrs. Anagaha Joshi were open. The spiritual causes for this are given further.
1. Points realised by Miss Tejal Patrikar when singing the song with eyes closed
A. ‘Before commencing the song ‘will the pitch be correct, will everything go well’ were thoughts ruminating in my mind. That is why in the beginning I was finding it rather difficult to remain calm.
B. Once the singing started worrying thoughts in my mind stopped.
C. My eyes closed spontaneously and I was feeling ‘may my singing be delivered unto the Holy feet of Paratpar Gurudev’.
D. Musical notes were going inwards effortlessly.
E. I had become introverted and thoughtless and was able to meditate through those notes.
F. My eyes remained closed till the song was completed, in fact I could not open them.’
– Miss Tejal Patrikar, Sanatan ashram, Ramnathi, Goa (13.5.2019)
2. Points realised by Mrs. Anagha Joshi when singing with eyes open
A. ‘Before commencing the seva of singing I was happy.
B. In the beginning for 2 minutes I was thinking about matching of the pitch.
C. Thereafter these thoughts vanished and I became happy again. In fact I was thoughtless.
D. Despite my eyes remaining open there were no thoughts in my mind, my mind was concentrated on communion with God.’ (This itself is going into meditation in the waking state. – Compiler)
– Mrs. Anagha Joshi, Sanatan ashram, Goa (13.5.2019)
3. Common points observed when Miss Tejal Patrikar
and Mrs. Anagha Joshi both were rendering seva of singing
A. Both were singing with spiritual emotion.
B.Deity Saraswati in subtle form was present in the voices of both. Hence the Deity Herself was singing through both of them.
C. Since the voices of both were blended with each other only one voice was heard instead of two. Only when minds of two singers match their voices blend with each other completely.
D. When a singer becomes one with the implied meaning of a song and the music from the notes their eyes automatically close or remain open and hand movements occur spontaneously.
