A precious mantra received at the Mansarovar Lake during the 2017 Kailash Yatra with Mohanji
The Kailash with Mohanji pilgrimage of 2017 was conducted in the month of July, which is also the month of Aashada (as per the traditional Hindu calendar) and just after Gurupurnima. One of the highlights of this trip was the visit to the holy Mansarovar Lake – a lake created in the mind of Lord Brahma and then manifested on Earth. This lake is considered to be a personification of purity and one of the most sacred water bodies on Earth. Hence, taking dips in this lake and drinking this water are considered truly special for any genuine seeker. The occasion gains more significance when done in the presence of a Master connected to the Source such as Brahmarishi Mohanji.
On most Kailash pilgrimages, Mohanji leads the way when it comes to taking dips in Mansarovar. He typically enters the sacred waters first and offers His prayers to the lake as well as to Mount Kailash. The whole group constantly chants “Om Namah Shivaya” as they absorb the energies of the place.
This year, as Mohanji began taking His dips, He was looking intensely at Mt Kailash and had His hands spread out wide in prayer.
As we were chanting, He suddenly looked at us and narrated a different mantra as if it was being conveyed to Him telepathically. He made us repeat it a few times and then asked the whole group to chant this mantra.
“Om Tatpurushaya Vidmahe
Tanno Shankar Prachodayaat“
I recognize the pure formless,
As the form of the Lord of Kailash,
May that form named Shankar enlighten me!
As the group went through their dips and prayers, we chanted this mantra non-stop and in due course the Sun God smiled on us and gave us the first clear darshan of the holy Mt Kailash. Furthermore, the sunlight was glinting off the snow to give a golden hue to Kailash. Later, as the group went to meet Mohanji to take his blessings, He said that this mantra was delivered to Him. He shared with the group so that we treat it as a precious gift and understand its significance.
Later, after the yatra was completed, we looked for this mantra elsewhere to check if it was already available; our research didn’t yield any results, indicating that this was a new mantra delivered to Mohanji from Kailash.
At Mansarovar, Mohanji shared another important message about the right attitude to develop and help support others. His specific words:
“You have all come from various places and from various backgrounds. Yet, we have been received with open arms without any judgement, bias or partiality and we have been given a wonderful darshan by Kailash. In the same way, we have to live our lives just like how Kailash welcomed us. Whoever comes to us, however negative they are or how negative their attitude is, they should go back full of positivity and unconditional love, i.e. we don’t become negative, instead we send them back with positivity. Only if we are able to do this, we are living Kailash in our lives. Only then are we taking dips in Mansarovar in front of Kailash everyday in our lives. If we can do this, we are Kailash.”
Our everlasting gratitude to Brahmarishi Mohanji and to Lord Shiva for these precious blessings during this year’s yatra.
