<1st day>

At first, I felt heat around my forehead, and tears flowed automatically.
Half of my body turned warm or cold, one by one.
And after that, I was filled with calmness and joyfulness.
A few hours later, I felt my abdomen swelling. And I had hard feces, though it is rare for me.

<2nd day>

It was very calm from the beginning, and I didn't feel any bodily change.
sitar playing from the beginning to the end, I was satisfied with calm and joyful feeling.

<1st day>

I felt movement on my chest at first, then throat, eyes, and then it flowed to brain. And it came back to coccyx. Then my body moved accordingly so that some winded parts in neck and spinal code were released this time. During Meditation time, I found myself very quiet and silent and I could stay in silence for long without any movement for stress releasing.
At night, I was observing me sleeping from somewhere like hilltop. Feeling like something is hanging, and I found that I was awakening while sleeping. This circumstance continued for a few days.

<2nd day>

I felt silence and stableness inside body. Rain sound also went into my body with sitar sound. Peaceful and restful breathe. Only left knee and ankle moved a little during therapy.
I went straight into meditation this time. I felt my spinal code was also straight, to my happy surprise.
I felt like I was being centered and being silence.
My self just observed me from the hilltop.
For this blissful 2 days, I observed that I behaved and made actions from within my inner fullness and blissfulness.

Firstly, when I took my first personal session, my whole body moved a lot according to the music, though it was the first time. I felt good at that time. From left side of neck, some force came in and went out from the first finger of my right foot. And my weak parts such as low back, knees, and ankles reacted and moved.

I was pointed out the same health condition as Dr.Sadanand did, so that I realized the value of music therapy.

<1st day>

My body moved and reacted by the music like the first session. It was different from personal session. It seemed that my body reacted only when the tune was for me. Though the music was strong, my body didn't react. I understood that it worked to some unbalanced points in my body. I felt satisfied very much.

<2nd day>

It was very impressive. Even though the music flowed fast, my body didn't react. I could concentrate to listen to the music quietly. I got to understand that these reactions were just natural. When I concentrated into music, I felt both eyes were pulling backwards deeply and my head was empty.

At the last part, I felt my chest was gradually open. It was very much similar to what Tamo-san did to my chest chakra in her course. So I delightfully expected to experience like that, but music was over before that. I thought if the music was longer enough.

In the meditation after that, I had the first experience. As I repeated Mantra, I could concentrated into Mantra and rain sound, with no thoughts coming in.

Usually I can't keep my back bones straight for long, but this time I could sit with my chest open and my back straight till the last.

As my concentration continued, I felt my body warm enough and delightful. I couldn't see any color, light or vision, but it was a very peaceful meditation. It was the longest time which I could keep my condition like this.

I am very happy to know that I could also meditate in the Q & A session with Dr. Chandrakant. It was a very, very wonderful experience.

Thank you very much.

<1st day>

I felt music was going directly into my center part such as from chest to abdomen. I felt that sound was like waves and vibrations.

<2nd day>

It was same as the day before that music came into my center part as a vibration. But this time I felt that there was a one size bigger body above my actual body. I found that I was in the upper body. There was a sense that my back touched to the flour, but I felt like I was floating.

I felt comfortable and restful very much. I didn't feel sleepy nor tiredness.

My consciousness was clear at that time.

<1st day>

I felt sensation continuously on front left brain, and upper left temple.

The meditation after sitar playing, was warm-hearted. I've been meditated with the same members for several times, but it was the first time to feel the softness and smoothness within this space at that time.

<2nd day>

I didn't feel any specific sensation on my body, and I felt just quiet. I didn't pay attentions to the others nor to me.
I enjoyed calm and comfortable feeling.
I would like to express my gratitude for that I could meet Dr. Chandrakant Sardeshmukh and he made me to know how sitar was wonderful.

Thank you very much.

<1st day>

I felt rough inside myself.

<2nd day>

I experienced clearly that when I concentrated to the music and just listened, I did go into meditation.

I think that moment or that period was the experience of the observing only.

<1st day>

The heaviness of head had removed, and I felt clearness in my eyes.
It was easier for me to go into meditation than usual. I found myself so quiet and calm without thought. It was my first time to get fullness feeling, sprang out from inside.
I felt some movements (spiral) in various parts in my body.
Surrounding mountains, and a room...
I also found silent and warm atmosphere.
I found my face looked good. The faces of all others looked best.

<2nd day>

The atmosphere of the room was peaceful, fullness, quiet and calm, and I felt comfortable.
My body was also light and calm.
Nothing happened. I felt like staying there for a long time.
Meditation..... I was just there without any thought.
I really appreciated his music therapy. I felt that Dr.Chandrakant received each vibration from each of us clearly and simply thought of each person.
Anger ! I see. I reminded that there was anger inside myself. I forgot the anger inside, though it was the root cause....

During the therapy, I felt like I was lying in the music.

<1st day>

I saw the visions; one was the long-tied folded papers were falling down from the top, and another was the sand in a big sand-clock was falling down.
I felt my head was clear, and I didn't feel my body.
And I opened my eyes and stared at one point. Nothing had moved, and stable. I felt the personal among the wholeness.

<2nd day>

I didn't see any visions. I felt a flow toward my lower body. I felt the unity of heavy rain sound and music sound. During a pray, I felt the wave was coming and going for a moment.

<1st day>

I felt numbness on fingers and hands. There were still many thoughts in my brain.

<2nd day>

I felt numbness on hands and legs, and my leg toes had a sudden shock for a moment.
I was relaxed very much and felt comfortable.
I felt that I could leave myself to music, or in other words, I was united with music.

Thank you very much.

<1st day>

It was a group session, but I felt music was close to me like a private session. I just felt that the melody was very soft and my body was surrounding by it. There were some sensations in left hand and left leg.
I felt gap time was rather long. There were some talking in my brain.
During meditation, I felt uneasy only for the first minutes, but it was conformable.

<2nd day>

While music therapy, I saw some visions. Dr.Chandrakant told me that it was because of some stimulation, and I agreed. I didn't know when the music was over. When I remembered myself, there was no music. And I understood it was the time for gap. It seemed "emptiness" in my mind.
Meditation time went so fast for me. I wanted to continue forever. I got much satisfaction.
I never forget such experience. I thank you all and all the bless of God.

When I took music therapy personally, the sound of sitar was always in my ears. However, this time the sound was gone on the way both on the first day and the second.

On the first day, it sounded like the wind and I was in a very quiet and still atmosphere.

On the second day, I saw a vision - landscape outside the window, a birthday cake, and the sun high up in the sky. When I came to myself, I found the picture of Maharaj in front of me. Then I felt the grace of Maharaj. I hope this kind of music therapy by group will be held in Osaka.. I really appreciate having a chance to take your music therapy by group.

Comparing the first to the second session, the second was more peaceful and relaxed for me.

At the first session, various parts of my body moved so much.

And I felt hot at heart and stomach, and my both legs were hot, too.

At the second session, my whole body was held softly. I felt my head was full of energy. And there was a pain at back part of head.

Thank you very much.

<1st day>

I had a tension so that I could not keep concentration on music. Sometimes I felt sound was far away from me, and sometimes I could concentrate on music. It happened by turn.

<2nd day>

I could relaxed and maintain concentration. My feeling that my back touched on the floor, disappeared. My consciousness was aware that music was gradually far away and sound became small. Also I was aware of the automatic reactions in hand.

<1st day>

At first, I felt heat in my body (hands, etc.).

My hands and legs moved a little.

On the latter half, my whole body was surrounded by something warm and I felt very comfortable.

The last part of music was more beautiful for me.

After the therapy, it was easy to go into meditation. And time run so fast.

<2nd day>

I felt heaviness in head and stiffness in my body before I got the therapy.

Again, my body was surrounded by something. And that something went into delicate, and at last it was like a cream. Just relaxed.

When I meditated after that, I felt a thick pole from the upper chakra to the lower one. And I felt something warm flew down from the top to the bottom. And then, the pole turned to a tensed rubber string.

Then I saw the fire like the candle light in the center of my body. And mantra was united with the fire, and myself was almost united together. It was my new experience.

After that, such images didn't come out. I just repeated mantra. I sometimes experienced my consciousness changed into a different state.

I could sit in straight and I felt it was a long time.
