June 7, 1947 - May 3, 2020
Bharti Sanghavi, a beloved member of the Fellowship of Friends, completed her task, after a protracted struggle with leukemia, on Sunday, May 3, 2020 at 2:00 am, India time. Bharti would have turned seventy-three on June 7th.
Bharti joined the Fellowship in the Rajkot, India center on August 13, 1997. She and her husband, Pravin, visited Apollo several times while members of the Rajkot Center. Her acceptance of her illness over several years was an example to many.
On behalf of all who knew you, we thank thee.
In loving presence,
For The Elysian Society
Funeral Service Text: Bharti Sanghavi Memorial Service 2021-02
Calmness, gentleness, silence, self-restraint, and purity:
these are the disciplines of the mind.
What a surprise to follow the service for Bhakti, beautiful, simple, very touching. I remember both of you in your visits to Apollo, your happiness to be here and your love. I still have the beautiful little bag you gave me and remember you! She is already following her path!!
Thankful to Bharti for sharing presence with us at Mumbai Center with Pravin Sanghvi.
Love with warm hug.
Thanks to all who have given tributes to Bharti and special condolences
To me. Your love and support gives extra stregth.
I have seen her doing the work very inconspicuously. Zero false personality.
Remembering her as not physically present does not work for me.We get used to certain events, people and situations. Having Bhartiben tugging Pravinbhai is one such strong image I will not relinquish.
If strength was to be found in silence, it was her. Always there, always quiet but never invisible. She had such pleasing presence that it just cannot finish even now.
Will always remember her with fondness and respect. Her spiritual journey was not always smooth but was always evolving. She kept on trying despite her challenges.
She was very calm
She was very calm and lots of patience
* forever grateful
May your soul rest in peace. We will remember you for your kindness simplicity and your dedication to the work.
Dear friend ,
It is surreal to feel how deeply meeting you , even for only a couple of days , marked my whole entire life !
Holding your hand , with the full understanding of what was inevitable to come , and gaining that strength from you to just face it , embrace it , be with it …..and even more so …..calmly smiling at it ……floating above it ….gracefully , lovingly , selflessly ……..winning that untouchable state of not needing any words , any explanations …..because having the capacity to use our deepest resources and brining our soul to the surface with all our might – is enough !
I am forever grateful fateful for receiving this last lesson from you . May God help me to never forget it .
Love you very much , will miss your graceful smile in this world , make sure you take it with you at your next step !
Journey on , my friend !
Her calmness while taking dinner with us in a center, makes me Understand the joy of dinning with taste. Am thank thee for serving me whenever I had visit her home.
