This is how the online announcement was made

‘There was an online satsang organised to guide seekers on how to perform spiritual practice during the upcoming calamitous times and it was announced that Shrichitshakti (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil would be present as a result of which all seekers joined it. Mr. Vinayak Shanbag who compered the programme started with a subtle experiment.

Seekers were asked to tell what they felt by looking at one sealed envelope. All said they experienced Bliss and Divine Consciousness (Chaitanya). In fact some got a vision of Bhagwan Shrikrushna and some of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale on looking at the envelope. Then H.H. (Mrs.) Uma Ravichandran opened the envelope and showed the picture of Mr. Pattabhiraman Prabhakaran. This evoked spiritual emotion in all.

Then H.H. (Mrs.) Uma Ravichandran told Mr. Prabhakaran that after looking at his photograph all seekers were experiencing positivity and to guide others on what efforts he had been making. After he narrated some of his efforts H.H. (Mrs.) Uma Ravichandran read the message sent by Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale declaring him a Saint.

After the online satsang Shrichitshakti (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil, H.H. (Mrs.) Uma Ravichandran and her husband Mr. Ravichandran met H.H. Prabhakaran and felicitated him with a floral garland. Shrichitshakti (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil offered him a coconut and a gift in the presence of his daughter-in-law Mrs.Veena. The latter spoke about his simple living, low ego and how he observes his wife’s physical illness as a spectator and serves her.’
