The charisma of Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil perceived by everyone who meets Her

Mr Vinayak Shanbhag

Without thinking of Her Sainthood, Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Mukul Gadgil conducts Herself like an ordinary seeker. When we meet respectable people in society, She introduces Herself as a servitor from Sanatan’s Ashram. Yet, the Divine radiance on Her face reveals Her spiritual authority. Just as flowers need not be told to bloom once the Sun rises, true Saints do not have to introduce themselves as Saints. We have been getting the spiritual experience everywhere of society getting attracted to Her Sainthood spontaneously. Only a few incidents have been mentioned here due to limitations of space.
We express gratitude unto the Holy feet of such a radiant Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil and Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale, who moulded Her !

1. During the study tour of Sri Lanka, a senior Government official addressed Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil as a ‘Divine woman’, and gave us all assistance

A. A senior Government official enquired about Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil upon seeing Her : During the tour of Sri Lanka in 2018, Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil went to have darshan of the Deity in the famous Shiva Temple at Naguleshwaram. This ancient Shiva Temple is 5,000-years-old. Deity Shriram has worshipped in this Temple. When Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil visited the Temple, She interviewed the priest of the Temple. At that time, some senior administrative officials were present in the Temple. One official asked Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil, “Who are you ?” To this She replied, “We have come from India. We are servitors of Shriram and have come to visit venues associated with Shriram. We have an Ashram in India. We are the servitors of that Ashram”.

B. The senior official referred to Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil as a ‘Divine woman’ and invited Her to his office to seek Her blessings : During his conversation with Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil, the official said, “I am an administrative official here. I am a Buddhist; however, I feel close to Hindu Dharma. Seeing You, I felt that You are some Divine woman. I was automatically drawn towards You”. At that time, we told him that Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil is a Saint. Upon learning about Her Sainthood, the official said, “Mother, do come to our office tomorrow. We will feel blessed”.

C. The official discussed and understood spiritual practice from Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil and honoured Her appropriately : On the official’s invitation, Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil went to meet him. The official had discussions with Her on Spirituality and spiritual practice for two hours. Other officials were also present there. The official said, “Mother, if You need anything anywhere, please contact me. Wherever You travel in Sri Lanka, we will try to provide You all the help possible”. While leaving the office, the official presented Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil a memento.

A. Upon seeing Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil, the elderly manager called Her a ‘Divine woman’ and refused to take Her entry fee : There is one more location of historic importance in Sri Lanka where Mother Seeta underwent the Agnipareeksha. The name of the village is Divurumpola. This place is 18 kms from the city of Nuwara Eliya which is located on high mountain ranges. Many Hindus in Sri Lanka do not know about this place. In the company of Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil, we looked for this place, and finally by the grace of the Guru, we reached there. Outside the Temple premises we met a Buddhist Bhikku (Monk) and the elderly Buddhist manager of the Temple. We asked them about the site of Agnipareeksha of Mother Seeta. The Buddhist Bhikku told the elderly manager to show us the site. On seeing Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil, the manager said, “I feel that you are some Divine woman. I have been working here for the past 50 years. No one like You has visited this place so far. I will not charge You the entrance fee. I will charge only those who are accompanying You”. His words surprised us.

B. The elderly manager gave the key of the Temple door to Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil : The elderly manager took us to the Ashvattha (Sacred Bo tree) under which Mother Seeta had undergone the Agnipareeksha. There was a Temple near the tree. Its main door was shut. The elderly manager said, “Mother, You look very much like Mother Seeta. I have never given the key of this Temple to anyone so far. Today, I am giving the key of Mother Seeta’s Temple to You. You open the lock yourself”. The words of the elderly manager awakened our bhav (Spiritual emotion). Saying this, the manager gave the key to Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil. The key was so big that it had to be held with both the hands. When Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil held the key She had tears of bhav.

After worshipping the Deity, one Trustee of the Temple said to us, “Today, my wife and I had decided to offer a kalash for the new Rajgopuram (The main door to the east of the Temple).
