Pursuant to the Great Battle, the respected ladies of both Kauravas and Pandavas who lost their husbands, sons, grand sons, grand fathers, fathers, in-laws and nephews collected on the banks of Ganges and prayed toVeda Vyasa to secure a glimpse of the departed, since the ladies could not go to the battle field. Among the ladies were Kunti, Gandhari, Draupadi, Subhadra and Uttara. Dhritarashtra and Pandava Heros were also invited to the expected miracle-spectacle. The Maharshi performed Pranayama and deep yoga- oriented meditation to the Unknown and Omniscient Devi Bhagavati. His intense and continued worship for quite sometime and as an indication of the positive response received from Maha Devi, there were indications on a huge sky-long celestial screen and there were quick glimpses of the one-to-one fights and the resultant deaths and reactive celebrations; the screen views of the Linga and Limbless Bodies of the departed souls which were recognised at once by the concerned eyes, but not the converse.
