Feedback of some in the audience
1. Advocate (Mrs.) Priyanka Sankpal – The programme was organised systematically. Despite the crowd the seating arrangement was perfect. Usually speakers talk about their own achievements but your speakers elucidated the necessity of spiritual practice. After listening to the guidance I realised how our culture and traditions have been preserved through our values. Spiritual practice tunes a disturbed life and stabilises the wandering mind. It is the golden path to a happy life. So let us make efforts to preserve our cultural heritage. (Mrs. Priyanka expressed her willingness to visit the Sanatan ashram and her husband offered to help as well.)
2. Mr. Dhanaji Tipugade – The guidance was excellent.
3. Mrs. Deepa Telang – The guidance was delivered in a particular rhythm and since it was supported by Divine Energies I felt that it should go on. The topic of spiritual practice was impressed upon the subconscious mind. .
4. Mrs. Kirti Mangeshkar – The sattvikta here was like in a temple. Divine Energy could be perceived in Sadguru Swatitai.
