Being With Mohanji – The Transformation

Guru Comes to You At The Right Time

“Teachers happen when the student is ready. And the teacher is always in relation with the student. When a student happens, a teacher happens. Teacher is a state just like student is a state. The teacher or the student are never permanent in their roles. A teacher can be a father, a husband, a lover, a pedestrian, a shopper, a barber, a cook or any other role a human being may play in his or her lifetime. The right knowledge will come to you at the right time, through a person, a book or a life experience. This is the truth of existence.”

Below, I share, from the heart, how my life changed from a mundane existence to one of joy, peace, gratitude and selfless actions through the appearance of a Guru at a time of need in answer to a prayer.
What have I gained by being with Mohanji is a vast subject that can’t be put down into mere words. I contemplated on this matter for a couple of days and as I sat with my husband talking about certain things, I ended up discussing with him all that I have gained by being with Mohanji. It was so simple yet complicated.

Mohanji_simple
Simple Yet Complicated!

My life before Mohanji was very uncertain on many levels. From my childhood, I had been one of the weird kids who always felt different and shy inside. On some levels, I can say that I had lived a turbulent childhood which continued into most of my early adult life. First, it was distant family problems. Then as I grew older, I realized that I never fit in with a lot of groups because I was never really interested in what they talked about. I was a party goer for most of my late teens and thought life was just about partying and spending money.
After getting married and visiting Kerala for the first time in 2004, I had such a profound experience at the Guruvayurappan Krishna temple, which brought tears and intense love to my heart, that shook me. That’s when I realized that there was something tangible in these temples. So I became obsessed with visiting temples and praying – just thanking God for everything.
However, marriage also brought a sense of responsibility towards fixing my family matters. My husband and I took it upon ourselves to visit different temples, perform countless pujas, prayers in my name or their names to uplift them and myself from all the troubles and ignorance. There was this compulsion in me that kept me going for years and I can recall most of our married life was spent on fixing other people – my family, etc. I felt burdened at times and cried out numerous times to God to please end this suffering of mine as there was no end to my turbulent life. Things did improve in my life but I never felt contented and always felt like there was something more to do.
Since I had filled my life with trying to help others while ignoring my own pain, I never knew how to deal with things when they got difficult as there was no anchor in my life to tell me it will be okay in the end. My husband was always there no matter what, but I was looking for something higher to connect to. I felt abused, disrespected and unloved on many occasions by many people in my life. I was a machine living for others and trying to make them happy while I was unhappy on many levels.
The above describes my life after my marriage basically from 2003 to 2012 – in pain, in depression at times, feeling lonely, betrayed, etc. After 2012, my life changed drastically again after visiting a Shiva Temple in Kauai, Hawaii, where I truly believed there were Gods, angels and higher beings alive among us, helping and guiding us. It brought a lot of change in my life which cultivated patience and faith. I gave up certain dietary things as well as alcohol, which I took on special occasions and learned could be a hindrance to one’s spiritual path. I became aware that one’s purification and penance was very important in finding God. To better myself, I started fasting, serving family by cooking food for them, ignoring their cold remarks, and learning how to restrain myself.
During this time, I also read the book “Autobiography of Yogi” by Paramahansa Yogananda. This book helped me realize the importance of a Guru and how having love for Him transcends any physical or conditional love that I was used to. This drove me to seek and question if there was a Guru for me as well in this life. I installed Mahavatar Babaji’s picture in my temple even though it felt kind of strange because I had grown up with the idea that we only install and pray to idols of deities and not to a human beings. Even though I knew Babaji was beyond human definitions, it was just something that was hard for me to do.
From 2012 to 2015, I did meditations on my own where I would just force myself to sit and contemplate on Babaji or just nothing. I prayed to God to send me a Guru. After hearing from somewhere that when one pours water on a Shiva lingam and asks with a pure heart, God surely brings that into our life. Without being aware, Mohanji came into my life slowly, but my ignorance was too deep to even recognize Him. In 2015 I found Mohanji’s blog through the grace of Babaji and I was able to meet Him physically in 2016. Meeting Him was also very turbulent for me due to my own negative self. I had to shed a lot to see His divinity. This was the first gift He gave me – the ability to connect to Him despite the darkness surrounding me, while dissolving my ignorance so that I could see Him in a different light and purity.

Light & Purity with Mohanji

During one of my trips with Mohanji, He casually mentioned that having my second daughter accelerated my path to meeting Him, but I was destined to meet Him anyway, probably later in time. Many are His subtle ways that I can’t even begin to describe them.
The big question is what has been so different after meeting Him. Well, all my compulsions to fix things, others, or situations have gone. I no longer feel that I am in any control to fix anyone let alone help them, unless they themselves are seeking guidance. If I do happen to help someone, I have realized that it is not me but the energy of God working through me to help that person, so the ownership or doership has gone. I have also been initiated to Mai-Tri healing, so I can serve others selflessly and bring Mohanji’s healing to others.
I feel protected for the first time in my life. Not that I didn’t feel protected before, but this is where I know if I am in trouble or something is bothering me, He will be there no matter the time or space. It’s very comforting to know someone is always with me, guiding me no matter what.
I have also become stronger in myself and have more faith in myself and my abilities. I no longer wish to get gratification from others or listen to others. I know I am self-sufficient and I am perfect the way I am, despite being laughed at numerous times throughout my life. It is knowing that all of us are different, unique and loved by the Divine just as we are. Even though lack of acceptance is still there on minute levels, it is now a work in progress.
Another great thing I have gained from being with Mohanji is His global family. I just love meeting different people from all over the world and connecting with them instantly. It is like they are my real family at times and it brings me so much joy just to share love and stories with them. It’s a connection on a different level that I never experienced outside of His family.

Connection at a different Level – Kailash Trip

Mohanji has also brought forth more awareness to the suffering of animals. Due to this I have been vegan for a year and have never been so happy to realize that I had the strength to give up on desires that are so hard to give up in one’s life. Now, it’s a lifestyle of Ahimsa which was just a thought before meeting Him. This decision has helped me to avoid feeling the guilt of consuming something that was snatched from another being. Because if the roles were reversed, I would not want the same thing inflicted on my loved ones.
So far, the most important thing I feel I have gained is that Mohanji anchors me in the present. I no longer look elsewhere; He has given me something strong and tangible to hold on to. This feeling was what I was looking for all my life until I met Him. I realized that if this anchor had been available to me earlier, I would have been less turbulent within myself and more stable. He has given me stability that I thought I would never achieve in this life. I have cried to God when I couldn’t handle things and have asked Him to end my life, but now I don’t have such thoughts. I feel happy, loved, accepted and grateful to have this human birth where I have been given this much awareness. Simply put, Mohanji helped me become a better me, someone I love.

Love and Acceptance From My Guru – Machu Picchu

This was my humble attempt to pen down my most intimate thoughts. I feel privileged to even be on this path and to be able to express my gratitude to Mohanji. Without Him, I probably wouldn’t even have the strength to face, accept and write all these things. Thank you Father for everything and coming into my life.
With deep gratitude and love,

Revealing Truth about Mohanji

Mohanji_Kailash

My name is Swami Brahmananda, formerly a member of the Skandavale Ashram in Wales UK, now continuing my sadhana as an individual traveling in India.

I first met Mohanji when he visited Skandavale in 2014. My own Guru having left his body in 2007, I was not looking for a replacement and as such connected with Mohanji as a familiar old friend. It was soon clear however that Mohanji truly embodies the Guru principle and seamlessly supported the sankalpa of all true Gurus in his unassuming, authentic and informal way.

Mohanji and the Guru Mandala

In inviting me to participate in the Inner Kora yatra of Mt Kailash in 2016, Mohanji fulfilled the will of my own Guru, making himself almost invisible he acted as tour guide, translator and companion, where necessary imparting the right spiritual knowledge to guide me in my own inner journey.

Mount Kailash represents a daunting physical and logistical challenge, the Inner Kora even more so. It was truly humbling to witness how Mohanji supported every member of our group, directly taking their burdens upon himself when he could see their own resources were failing.

“I have only the weight of my soul to carry”

Asking him later how he was able to carry all these people Mohanji smiled and explained “I have only the weight of my soul to carry” In an instant, I understood who he was.

During the second day of the Yatra, we walked to the edge of the glacier at Charan Sparsh which extends from the north face of the mountain. The Tibetan Sherpas normally don’t allow anyone to walk on the glacier itself because of the danger (that year more than 30 people had died around Kailash) but when Mohanji started climbing up the ice himself it became clear a divine precedent had been set and a group of 12 were able to cross the expanse of ice to prostrate and embrace physically the north face of this most sacred of mountains. For me personally, this was surely the single most powerful transforming event of my life made possible through Mohanji’s grace.

Touching Kailash_Swami B
Embracing Kailash

Mohanji explained at the time this event represented the beginning of a dimensional shift in consciousness and we should be ready for dramatic changes in our life circumstances.

I didn’t fully understand his words until in September 2017 I was thrown out of the ashram which had been my home for 26 years amidst some extreme differences of opinion about spiritual life. Leaving the material security of the ashram at age 51 with a few clothes and enough money for a tank of petrol, my mind resonating with the turmoil of many harsh and critical voices surrounding my departure, my first instinct was to contact Mohanji. As is his habit, he responded personally within minutes and we arranged a meeting. At a time when my own self-belief had received a battering, Mohanji believed in me and for that, I will always be grateful.

Unconditional Loving Support

We met during Mohanji’s program in Switzerland and immediately his words went beyond opinions and superficial emotion to confirm in my mind that actually nothing bad had taken place and no one had done anything wrong. Rather evolution was taking place, I began to understand what the dimensional shift really meant, and my future as traveling renunciate came into focus, all leading to greater awareness and fulfilment in the years to come. From that discussion with Mohanji, I began to turn my mind away from the trauma of my departure from Skandavale and embrace the expansive vista of service on the stage of the world. Both in spiritual counsel and practical support through the extensive network of Mohanji’s organisation in India, I could embark on the next chapter of my own journey with renewed confidence knowing that unconditional loving support without judgement was at hand.

Spiritual & Divine Communion

The day following our completion of the Inner Kora of Kailash Mohanji was in a deep state of spiritual communion with the divine powers dwelling in and around the mountain. He relayed to us in real time his communication, giving personal insights and reassurance about our lives and that the opportunity we had to go to the north face was indeed an unprecedented grace that would change our lives completely. That night, I had an intense dream experience where I found myself with Mohanji in a run down suburban street, somewhere in India I guessed, it was raining, litter and detritus was everywhere and the gutters overflowed with stinking effluent. I watched as Mohanji proceeded to prostrate face down in the road such that the foul water flowed over his head, protesting I called to him to stop, but he replied, “I must do this, it is my job”.

Greatness That Dwells Behind The Human Persona

Reflecting on this experience, l realised that I had been shown what Mohanji’s task in this incarnation is, to sanctify a polluted humanity and restore the sacred traditions of dharma. I was privileged and humbled to see the greatness of the soul which dwells behind the easygoing human persona.

Travel In The Path Of Liberation

Mohanji’s presence in the world continues to be a great source of reassurance, inspiration, and courage to travel the path of liberation to its end.

Mohanji – A Love that Liberates

By Mataji T. Villareal Sharma, Roxas City, Philippines

Mohanji_Love
The Look that can melt you!

Have you ever met somebody who, like the great Sun, could make you melt, and at the same time allow you to relax back into your comfortable self, like the moon blowing a cool breeze over the top of your head?

My husband kept looking at me when I was finally sitting right in front of Mohanji. He turned to me like I was a child who was in Disneyland for the first time and said with a sheepish teasing smile: “Look, that’s your Mohanji finally right in front of you! ” Since the top of my head felt like a hundred yarn threads were being pulled up, I couldn’t reply in a giggle even if I wanted to. I thought, “He’s on it, working on me now.”.

My husband could perceive every atom of my body smiling in a simultaneous sun and starstruck state. I felt my husband’s joy for me, as he had witnessed the days, nights and in-betweens that I was glued watching Mohanji’s videos online. Many times, I would fall asleep still with the earphones playing, in my ears, his voice in a guided meditation. My husband would gently remove it and would patiently, without complaints, watch me start my day again plugging myself with Mohanji.

For two consecutive years, my days went by on and off like this. Mohanji was like everything I have ever believed in, all in one: Kriya – Bhakti – Seva (Kriya – Devotion – Service)

Mohanji_all_in_one
Mohanji – All in One!

Someone actually exists with the package I have always resonated with! This is not to discount our gurus who have and are still deeply and lovingly guiding us. They are the ones, I believe who brought him to me, or the other way around. I’m still shaking my head in disbelief sometimes. “He is here! He is here!” my thoughts scream in a whisper. My heart quietly jumps in joy!

But when I met him… I didn’t find myself on my knees flat on the floor. I thought perhaps I would. I could see myself doing a triple flip in excitement, but instead… Instead…

His energy brought me to simply be myself. Centered, calmly joyful in knowing that I do not have to be anything else. I could be anything, dynamic, static or even ridiculous. I just felt I could never loose nor offend him. There were no rules in his presence -apart from authenticity. And even if I may not fully know what true authenticity is like, I was happy to be authentic with whatever arose in the present moment.

In front of me was the humblest most loving powerful energy I have ever encountered. He was never aloof nor distant. His laughter could shake the rust off your bones.

Mohanji_smile
Guru and his unique expression!

Every guru has their own unique expression of the same innate qualities. Some of them smile, some of them pass a glance and some of them scream. I got them all. Every one of them changed and blessed my life beyond comprehension.

As Shibendu Lahiri once told me at Lahiri Mahasaya’s residence in Varanasi 17 years ago , “Ganga is the same even when you meet Her in the Himalayas, Rishikesh, Haridwar, Allahabad or Banaras.”

Mohanji is so empowering that he could make you feel like you swallowed Neale Donald Walsh’s CWG 1,2,3 books along with Friendship and Communion with God books all in one gulp!

The story behind this meeting is a Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys stirred in, Choose Your Own Adventure novels all in one. I don’t know where and how to begin, but to make the long and winding “Series of Fortunate Events” short, getting there was like the parting of the sea of Galilee.

All my life, though sometimes mocked and laughed for it, have always enjoyed the presence of the masters of Love, Faith, and Wisdom. I ask nothing from them, not even a blessing. Often, my questions to them are not mine. However, all I hoped for was to bask in their presence even just for a moment in this physical form. It has made me feel less estranged in a world I mainly could not understand. I feel less weird around them. It’s just a nice feeling to meet people with the same “strangeness” as you are. After every darshan, of every magnanimous being, I always feel charged to face the world again.

Though it be impossible, if I were to describe Mohanji in one sentence, it would be: “A Love that Liberates.”

Mohanji, The Eternal Guru: Far Yet Not Too Far!

DEEKSHA-ANCIENT-SYSTEM-OF-SHAKTIPAT-initiation-gurudevi

“When a student is ripe and ready, the teacher just needs to add a spark and everything lights up.”

Ekalavya, a famous character from the great epic Mahabharata in ancient India, illustrated an exemplary discipleship towards his Guru, Shree Dronacharya – the Guru of Pandavas and Kauravas. Being refused the proximity of the great master, Ekalavya did not give up and built a statue of his Master. With complete surrender and utmost faith and devotion, he started learning archery. He became a better archer than even Arjuna, the best archer the world knows!

The lesson we learned from Ekalavya is, whether you are in physical proximity of your Guru or not, when you call him with great devotion and surrender, the Guru will provide you with all the teachings and will make you (his disciple) even more powerful than himself.

GUru gives

“GURU Gives Everything”

Dronacharya, Ekalavya’s Guru also demonstrated the high stature required to be able to give everything that the disciple needed and uplift the disciple. Master gives everything to everyone each time at the right time, unasked. Mohanji has demonstrated this beautiful aspect of our grand tradition everytime!

In today’s modern day also, we are seeing many such Ekalavayas who demonstrate their excellence which has been achieved just through their complete surrender and focus to Guru, even though they do not have the proximity to Guru’s direct teaching.

A recent email that came from Pavan in Nashik that explained how after just one meeting with Mohanji and a Shaktipat from him, his spiritual growth in last 8 years have taken to deeper awareness staying completely connected to Mohanji’s consciousness even though he did not have another chance of meeting or hearing from Mohanji.

Below is a narration from Pavan as received via email.

“My name is Pavan. I am writing this letter to thank Mohanji after 7 years of practice, that he initiated me in my first and only meeting with him.

I met Mohanji in 2010 when he came to Mumbai. I am from Nashik. I speak Marathi. Because my English is not good, I am writing this message with the help of a English teacher who is a friend,

Mohanji had a free program in a school and one of my teachers told me that I should go there. I was always happy for knowledge and I did not want to marry and waste life. I am 27 now. I am writing this only because Mohanji changed my life completely with one 5 minute meeting and a shaktipat.

Grace of Shaktipat
Grace of Shaktipat

During the programme, there were many people and I was not able to come close to Mohanji there. But, I wanted to touch his feet. Then an aunty announced that Mohanji would deliver individual Shaktipat. We stood in a line. All people were asked not to speak to him.

I decided that I must speak. When I reached him, he asked me in Marathi, “Have a question?” I was shocked that Mohanji also is a Maratha. I did not know that. (Mohanji is actually not a Maratha). I asked him in Marathi.

“What is my truth?”

He said “Your breath”.

How to catch it?

He said “Manana and Kriya”

“Explain please”

He said, “Tame your breath through Kriya. Let breath be your thread. Then thread your breath within. It will remove your tendencies. Breath leads you to Freedom”.

By the time, the aunty told me to not to disturb Mohanji. Mohanji smiled asked me to close eyes and gave me Shaktipat.

shaktipat-by-mohanji

It was like a thousand-watt power into my brain from his eyes and fingers. I felt dizzy. I felt completely empty. I became breath. Whatever he told me, I experienced that moment.

After this Shaktipat, I could automatically practice this for hours every day.

Eklavya-valmiki-295x200

I never met Mohanji again. Nevertheless, what he gave me changed my life forever. I have no money to go for big programs of gurus. However, without any money, Mohanji gave me everything I wanted for this lifetime.

7 years of practice, today I feel I have reached a stage where my awareness has grown, detachment with consciousness and I feel always connected to the supreme consciousness. This have been possible with just one Shaktipat of Mohanji.

GUru gives2.jpg

I am eternally grateful to the great Master Mohanji who gave me everything that I needed, without me even having to ask him.

Thank you Mohanji.

Yours sincerely,

Pavan.”

Such an honest and straight from heart expression from Pavan. During the seven long years where he had no communication or meeting with Mohanji, he was still connecting to Mohanji’s consciousness and kept on moving on in his spiritual journey. When he got the opportunity, he did not hideaway his gratitude and expressed in the best way he could do. Language was no bar!

He is probably one of the thousands that Mohanji has given such guidance, Shaktipat. Perhaps a word, a glance, a sentence or physical demonstration through his own life. However, how many have understood this aspect of the Golden Tradition or caught that thread and progressed ahead in life as Pavan has done?

M casual.jpg

Mohanji behind his unconventional, casual image, he stretches the rope of liberation towards everybody spontaneously who seeks with honesty and conviction.

Conviction, clarity and commitment can take disciples, as Pavan to miles ahead will also lead many more. Such honest exemplars will inspire many and their consistency will strengthen many.

Salute to the modern day Ekalavya, Pavan for sharing his incredible journey and gratitude to Mohanji for continuously showing everyone the path to liberation rising above the barrier of caste, creed, language and physical proximity.

HE WHO PROTECTS…

mohansuniverse - Mohanji - Krishna and Arjuna

Since ancient times, the Guru’s unconditional love and protection came to the disciple who had complete surrender and faith. This has been proven time and again through copious examples that are spread through all mythology and religions.

Lord Shiva has narrated in the Guru Gita, “The Guru can remove the fear of aging and the dread of death. The Guru offers protection to his disciples, even if they are cursed by the sages, demons or Gods”

Below are two testimonials that show how selflessly and unconditionally Mohanji protects everyone who is connected to His consciousness. These real-life experiences also show how Mohanji works in extended dimensions through his completely thoughtless, no-mind state. Being at one place, he is able to respond to disciples across different geographies. Nothing can bind Him – time, location or situation.

Complete and perfect surrender to SATGURU, making HIM the main object of worship, obeying HIS words to the fullest, can cut out the weeds of uncertainty and help one attain supreme bliss. – Mohanji

Guru Mohanji’s protection – every moment, every time

by Subhasree Thottungal, London

For me, Mohanji, my eternal Guru, is Parabrahma, the manifestation of supreme consciousness. He appears in different roles as per the situation. He is beyond any form of address – not confined to an image or relationship.  He protects all the time as a father; loves unconditionally and compassionately as a mother; empowers by giving knowledge and shining light on the spiritual path like a true guru; listens and empathises with every feeling just like the dearest and closest of friends; and brings immense joy and gives the fulfilment of life just like a son! He is Shiva, He is Shakti, He is Vishnu. He is Parabrahma! He is all relations in one name! Being aware of His presence everywhere at every moment is the awareness of the supreme consciousness.

As my awareness of this eternal connection grew day by day, my faith, devotion and surrender kept growing manifold to the point that I now recognise the non-existence of my existence! Total merger with Guru tattva has given me freedom even from the desire of liberation! Bliss in oneness, fulfilment in non-existence. However, while the physical body is there, all karmas need to be exhausted, all worldly dharmas need to be discharged and the character needs to be tested to strengthen conviction, faith, and surrender.

I was recently confronted by a situation that made my conviction more strong, my faith more firm, and my surrender more steady. I am not sure whether it was a karma that had to be exhausted or a test that had to be cleared. But that doesn’t matter.

mohansuniverse - Mohanji - Saved by Mohanji from car accident 1
The car whose front passenger side door I hit!

On a grey foggy winter morning, I was in a rush to drop my son at his school bus stop. In my haste, I rushed and banged into another car on a roundabout. This was my first accident.  There were no passengers in the other car. Even though there was a baby car seat, thankfully there was no baby in the car at the time of the accident. No one – me, my son or the other driver – was physically injured. Only the other car’s front passenger door sustained some damage.

My husband was out of town. I had my son in the car and was getting late for school. Deviji (Mohanji’s wife) was at home and I had to make breakfast on time before she goes out. My other son was still in bed and had to be woken up and gotten ready for school! In short, I was not in a good situation. 🙂 Since this incident happened right in the middle of the roundabout, I wasn’t sure how the driver of the other car would react. Myriad questions rushed through my mind in those couple of seconds – would he call the police? what would be the next process? How long would I be stuck on the road?

I looked at Mohanji’s photo in my car, called on Him silently, and immediately felt His protection.  I remembered later the shloka from Guru Gita –

Yasya Smarana maatrena, Jnaanam utpadyate svayam;

Ya eva sarva sampraapti, tasmai shri Gurave namah.

“Merely recalling my Guru, knowledge arises spontaneously. Remembering him brings all attainments automatically.”

mohansuniverse - Mohanji - Mohanji frame in car dashboard
Mohanji in my car, watching me always!

After I felt Mohanji’s energy, I asked my son to step out of the car and walk to his bus stop. I also got out of the car. I was expected a heated up shouting but to my surprise, the other driver approached me and very calmly and quietly asked me, “Were you not looking?” This was the first indication of Mohanji’s protectionI immediately apologised and said, “Apologies. It was my mistake, but I could not really see your black car.”

He asked me to move the car to the side lane to clear out the main road for others and talk it over. This was the second indication of protection. He didn’t create a big scene in the middle of the main road and was definitely not involving the police!

Once on the side lane, he asked me details about my insurance. I informed him that all the details are with my husband who is currently out of the country. However, I did give him my contact details. While I was trying to contact my husband, he was also trying to contact his insurance. In a few minutes, he came and offered me a chance to consult with my husband if  we would like to settle this through insurance or privately and inform him later. He allowed me to leave! This was the third indication of protection – not worsening the matter and also not getting stuck on the road for long. We agreed to catch up after he gets the quote for repair.

I returned home at about the same time as I would have otherwise returned after dropping my son at his bus stop! There was no delay and I could easily tend to the rest of the tasks that I had to do in the morning. This was the fourth indication of protection– Everything went on normally, as if nothing had happened! All through this situation, I was much calmer inside, feeling the cushion of Mohanji’s protection.

After I completed all the morning chores, I sat down and thought about what happened. It could have been a major accident had there been a passenger in the front seat or a baby in the back (on the same side). I always believe that Masters don’t interfere with our karma, especially when exhaustion is a must, but they certainly reduce its intensity. In this case, that’s exactly what happened. This was probably a karma that had to happen, but my Guru’s protection reduced the impact and let me come out of it with very less damage. A potentially larger problem was reduced to a miniscule dent! The monetary damage was insignificant compared to bigger issues that could have otherwise happened. This was the most important indication of how Mohanji’s protection shielded me!’

“The front of my car had miniscule dents”

With this incident, my conviction, faith and surrender to Guru and Guru Tattva (Principle), have become more strong and it has only proven that the understanding was correct.

Being in Mohanji’s protection feels like being in the most secure and safe place like a mother’s womb. I know he is carrying me and will never ever let me fall. When he says “I am with you”, he really means it and this is just another experience that confirms it.

May everyone with the conviction and faith in Guru and Guru Tattva be blessed to realise and understand this truth and bliss of being in the eternal protection of Guru. We may leave Guru’s hand, but He will never leave ours!

Upon reading my update regarding this incident on Facebook, Preeti Duggal, who was with Mohanji at that time in India, immediately commented the below:

“On that day, Mohanji had planned to visit a place later in the morning. We were all ready by 11.30am but He did not come out. The door to His room was closed. It is unusual for Him to be late! I thought that He was resting so we didn’t disturb Him. He came out at 1 pm and said that he had slept off. It has seldom happened that something is planned and He forgets about it. After I heard about your incident, I realized why He was resting. Mohanji is omnipresent. When you remember Him with full faith and devotion, He will always be there by your side and what He promises, He always delivers. His message to all of us, “I AM WITH YOU” was proved again yesterday. Thank you Mohanji for always holding our hand and being there for us in all situations.”

Upon reading this comment from Preeti didi (sister), I realised that He was with me the moment I glanced at His photo in my car and remembered Him! For me, this was a clear indication of His expanded existence and His ability to work in multiple dimensions beyond the physical body.

Expansion into multiple dimensions beyond the physical body.

Shaken but not Stirred

I haven’t managed to write any of my experiences so far, but today’s event just forces me to share it with you.

A few hours ago, I experienced a traffic accident – seemingly banal. After work, I was leaving the parking lot when a car hit the door on my side. The glass from the window was shattered and scattered all over me. Tiny bits of glass everywhere.

All this happened in an instant As it usually happens! For a moment, I didn’t realize what happened. It was so fast, but then again the blow seemed to last long. I got out of the car through the other door and went into the building to remove the glass, which was all over my face, hair, and clothes.

The important point is that even the glass fell all over me, I did not have a single scratch. Usually, I put on the seat belt before starting to drive, but I did not have the seat belt on at the time of the accident! This was a blessing in disguise because the force of the impact threw me on another seat due to which I didn’t get hit or scratched. There was no physical pain, no hurt – as if nothing had happened! Just a shock with the accompanying shaking 🙂

I immediately realised that it was Mohanji’s love and protection that allowed me to come out unhurt! I am infinitely grateful to Mohanji and all the Masters of the Tradition for their protection and love 🙏❤️

Mohanji’s message

With heartfelt gratitude to life for teaching us many great lessons and to the Guru and Guru Mandala for their constant protection, we leave you with this powerful message from Mohanji (sent after the incident was conveyed to Him) that brings utmost clarity about these incidents and is relevant enough for everyone to remember always.

“Nothing that destiny brings can be avoided 100%. But it’s impact is substantially reduced with grace. Grace happens when faith happens. Doubts removes grace or at least blocks its flow. The incident is over. Now the residue memory of it. The aftershocks. This also need to be handled gracefully. Every compelling incident leaves a strong impact in the mind. Conscious nullification of it is extremely important. Otherwise, memories reproduces everything at a later date which we call pattern. You are not directly responsible for this accident but your residual memories are. Hence, surrender and trashing or total clean up is essential. Less analysis is better for this. More you analyse, more you remember and more you store. More you talk about it, the more you remember. Let go. Leave it. Your part in this story is over with this experience. I always do my part but I don’t remember it afterwards because I have no house inside to store anything. Be Mohanji. Do not store anything. Be free from memories. Avoid re-creation of anything in life. Incidents experienced one time need be considered like a daily newspaper. Once read it should lose its value. Keep floating through life and gather nothing. I shall do my job. I love you and am always with you. Keep flowing without residual memories of any events of life. The world loves you and the world is you.
With Love
Mohanji
