Guru Purnima Celebration Worldwide 2018

Mohanji’s Guru Purnima message

Mohanji - Happy Guru Purnima

“Happy Guru Poornima to all of you.
This is not one day dedicated for the remembrance of your Guru. We should remember guru every moment as a reminder of who and what we actually are.
This day is for you to remember that the true guru is the real you. Your highest truth is your real Guru. Life provides the presence of Guru in your life through various incidents. When incidents are witnessed, when there is a witness, you will feel Guru. When you do not see incidents, instead see only the essence behind all incidents, you dissolve into the Guru. You will realise that you and guru have always been inseparably one. There is essentially no Guru outside of you.

My job is just to take you to yourself. You are the origin (of the journey) and you are the destination. I am just a reminder.

Happy Guru Poornima

With Love
Yours

Mohanji”

This is how we celebrated it all over the world:

Day 2

Mother – The one who loves unconditionally. The one who provides before the child even asks. The one who sleeps on a half belly so that her child can have some extra. The one who leaves no stone unturned to ensure the child gets all the happiness in the world.

It is disheartening when the same child is unwilling to provide a safe roof, extend a supportive hand, a patient ear and a warm hug when the parent needs it the most, as they age.

Mother’s Nest Old Age Home for women is one such shelter which houses aged women who have been abandoned by their kith and kin. Ammucare volunteers at Hyderabad visited the shelter and distributed sarees, groceries and medical supplies and spent some quality time with them.

The elders very happy to just be able to chat with someone and have someone hold them.

Ammucare team at Mumbai fanned itself across the entire city and performed Annadaan at various locations. “The smiles on the kids’ faces charges us up” says Ammucare volunteer Bharat V Gada.

The smiles on the kids’ faces is indeed precious, priceless and tugs at the strings of the heart. There can be nothing more valuable than spreading smiles and a compassionate heart and good intent is all it takes.
Spare a moment to reflect. Let us all do our bit and ensure that the needy do not sleep on an empty belly while we waste gallons of food.

MALAYSIA

On Saturday 28 July 2018, there was a lot of excitement in the air as we prepared for Puja of our dear Mohanji’s paduka. We started with the Maha Mantra and with each chant, beautiful sounds that seem like church bells ringing were heard. We flowed into chanting the 108 names of Mohanji whilst performing the Paduka Puja with offerings of milk and flowers and rose water.

Family members then performed Aarti and thereafter settled down for the Bliss of Silence Meditation. Peace and silence was experienced but one family member heard footsteps near the altar. Presence of Mohanji, Shirdi Baba and Devi Amma were deeply felt.

For the first time at the centre, our Prasad was food specially cooked by some family members topped up with a chocolate cake.

It was indeed a day of celebration remembering our beloved Guru Mohanji.🙏❤️

On Sunday 29 July 2018, visit to a childrens’ home began with the purchase of groceries under wish list of orphanage. Many family members, friends and devotees of Satya Sai Baba had generously contributed to the purchase and also tea for the home. Used furniture still in good condition was also arranged for delivery to the home.

The caretakers of the home are a couple and their children and two helpers. We had arrived at a time where the caretakers and some children had gone to arrange a burial ceremony of a dog which had been killed in an accident. The children had insisted on a proper burial for the dog. Love for animals flowed at such a young age.

There are 22 children ranging from 2 months old to 17 Years under the care of the home. We started with the Freedom Meditation. Children as young as 2 years and below, tried their very best to sit upright and keep their eyes closed. It was such a joy watching them. But alas, the warm day and lunch had taken its toil on them as they struggled to stay awake listening to the soothing music and voice of Mohanji.

There was much laughter and fun as the singing and games started and the highlight was tea time. Heart melting moments as we watched the children, the older ones feeding and taking care of the younger ones. The little ones ate their food with relish and even cleared their own plates and cups on finishing their meal.

Ending the event with sweets and chocolates distribution, brought more cheer and smiles from the little ones.

Gurupurnima, a remembrance to offer Gratitude to our Guru, Master, and all the teachers who gave us knowledge to recognize our best capacity and inner strength. Guru Tatwa that resides in Nature, Guru Tatwa that connects us to the Supreme Consciousness. Food was offered to shelter as part of the Gurupurnima celebrations. 
Devotees at Mohanji Datta Tapovan Canada got together to celebrate this auspicious day in Unison. Vegan is the theme of this Ashram. Vegan is one of Mohanji’s teachings and by following HIS teachings All the prasad that was prepared was total vegan. The event started with Pranav chants and Mohanji Pooja. All Deities were invited with deep gratitude and total surrender with devotion that drenched each eye and touched deeply within each heart. Mohanji Pooja was followed by Mohanji Gayatri Mantra chanted unanimously 108 times. The vibrations thus generated made many tremble and Speechless. All Devotees got their Padukas and we had a Paduka Abhishekham chanting Mohaji’s 108 names. That Holy water was then distributed as Prasad amongst all. After the Paad Pooja each heart was radiating with love and heartfelt gratitude towards Mohanji and all the Guru Tatwa that continuously guide us and bless us all.The bhaav was so deep that it inspired into spontaneous kirtans that became the soul of the event, many sang, many danced, many just swayed away in HIS Glory. Though externally to honour the flow of life the pooja was concluded by offering Bhog{Food} followed by aarti, internally the celebrations continued each moment with Mohanji’s presence residing in each heart. All present relished the Holy prasad and took home peace and love. We ever remain grateful in the Lotus Feet of Mohanji and Sainaath Maharaj. 
 
Jai Jai Sadguru Shree Mohanji Maharaj.

USA

We started the Guru Poornima observance by the Mohanji Family in the USA on Friday, July 6 with a group chanting of the Mohanji Gayatri mantra for 108 times. This continued for 21 days until Thursday, July 26.  Our group of hosts, Vidya from Connecticut, Vidya from Florida, and Pia and George from the DC area took lead in chanting and were joined by a group of dedicated chanters from all over USA via Zoom. On the day of the Guru Poornima, devotees offered prayers individually, with devotion and reverence to the Guru Parampara and to our beloved Guru Brahmarishi Mohanji and some conducted group meditation in their homes.

Devotees here have had many service projects in the pipeline for a while and it is worth noting that even though many tasks have taken long to culminate successfully, they reached fruition just in time for Guru Poornima, owing to the Guru’s grace. The following are a few noteworthy contributions made by our M family members to honor Mohanji and to offer love and gratitude:

Vidya from Connecticut successfully worked with Insight Timer, a very popular meditation app, to add the Power of Purity Meditation, opening it to the community of meditators all over the world.

Pia introduced the HSTY Kid’s Yoga at the Wat Thai Buddhist Temple in Washington DC as she took the children on an imaginary and fun-filled journey through a jungle, enjoying various animals through yoga poses.  The pictures taken at the event reflect the palpable sense of joy among those children.

Several members of the US family also participated in the global Guru Poornima Food Seva in Shirdi coordinated by Viji and other members of the ACT Foundation.

GURUDEVA – OH MY MASTER LISTEN TO MY CALL – the trial recording of a new song, composed and sung by Lata, accompanied on the piano by Benjamin and video choreography by George was posted on Mohanji USA FB page here. We will be working further as a team to complete full recording.

With the blessings of Mohanji, the excerpt from a new recording of a chant originally conceived by Devadas, jointly sung by Natesh and Jelena – Guru Mohana Sharanam – was released. The full recording will be available through Gurulight.  A global effort led by Natesh!

Manu has been working hard for the past several months to put together some exclusive merchandise inspired by Mohanji. With Mohanji’s Grace Divine M Heritage was launched on the Guru Poornima Day.

Guru Poornima celebrations concluded on Sunday, July 29th with a beautiful gathering at the Celebration Center for Spiritual Living, Virginia. The magical evening started with the Freedom Meditation and everyone present became as a child.  The evening filled with joy and love, and moved on from meditation to dance, music and chanting, and concluded with a beautiful Arathi to Mohanji and the Guru Parampara.  Mohanji’s presence was felt intensely as unconditional love filled the air and the hearts, when Ben who joined the evening towards the end, played the song ‘Unconditional Love’ on the saxophone leaving everyone in bliss and silence.  JAI MOHANJI.

This was only the beginning of Guru Poornima celebration that will continue in Food Seva over the weekend at Skandavale.

As part of Guru Poornima celebration, we carried out food seva at Skandavale temple on the weekend through a snack stall. While we served snacks and tea to the devotees outside the main food time (temple serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner to all devotees) in the times while they wait between the pujas, the income generated from this snack stall goes as donation towards the Hospice that Skndavale trust maintains. So in turn, our seva was to the terminally ill people who are being looked after by the Hospice. More than 600 devotees were fed over the weekend and we generated a good amount from the snack stall, that went to Hospice. This seva was more than just merely a snack stall and generating money. This entire two days of event was, as ever, a clear sign of divine play. Things thats ususally not easy for us, happened smoothly. We will not exaggerate if we say that we feel Mohanji’s presence in every bit of activities that we did. From the food being tasty to people being satisfied and not hesitating to praise and buying more to even taking away our tiredness of constant standing and working with hardly any rest! There was joy all the time! Smile never left our face! This joy and happiness was so evident to others, we even get complimented on that! This is not ordinary. Times when we needed something and would have just thought of Mohanji, in no time, that issue would have got sorted out! On top of all this, we even got chance to be part of all the special Pujas in temple, which otherwise with so much crowd, is an impossible chance. Divine ensured that all our unasked desires were fulfilled too. We thought we were doing seva!!! In reality, we were blessed with the opportunity just with Mohanji’s pure grace! How much ever we explain, words will not be enough to express our gratitude to our “Incarnation of Compassion” – Mohanji for BEING with us every single moment!!! Mohanji your Love for us all is immesurable! Thank you for making our tiny effort, successful with your presence. All our efforts surrendered at your feet.

Grace was just another word in the dictionary
Till you took me under your wings;
Surrender was never a word I knew
Till your words taught me;
Surrender I did and what followed was only and only Grace.

Love, you gave me so unconditionally
Never did I fathom its boundaries till you loved me;
Faith, not a feeling but a tradition so powerful
Dawned on me as your blessings enveloped me
Richer and richer I became, no trophies or bounties could give me.

Service and Compassion could be so magical and expanding
Every cell of me started experiencing
Because you were present every moment
Guiding to be pure in thoughts, words and actions
Being meaningful in existence for one and all.

I have only one thing to offer you my Master
Gratitude and Gratitude every second of my life
Half a decade and a metamorphosis I have undergone
With your love, your grace,your blessings and omnipresence
For this, none other than me can vouch and comprehend.

On this auspicious day an amazing experience shared with deep gratitude by Neelu Vepu. As below:

“One more Mohanji Leela graced by Him on my family…

My cousin Sameer was admitted in a hospital in Hyderabad, last Saturday with high fever.(He is a young boy of 25 yrs old.He has lost his parents and little brother in a tragic road accident while returning from Shirdi ten years ago). Doctors first diagnosed it to be Dengue, owing to the rapid fall in his platelets.
But after some time, tests came positive for malaria and Jaundice too.His body temperature was not coming to normal even after medication for 3 days.As soon as I came to know of this, yesterday afternoon i messaged Mohanji for help. He immediately replied even though he was very busy and advised some thing to be done for removal of his Karma.His consciousness was there with him helping Sameer recover.When i prayed Mohanji before I went to bed yesterday and asked him, whether Sameer will be ok, then he replied in consciousness that he was there beside Sameer. Last night the situation was very grim.
Just in one night, Mohanji changed the whole scenario .
Now today, he is having a normal body temperature, no signs of malaria, dengue, or jaundice after further tests.And he has been shifted to a normal room in the hospital from ICU. And he will be discharged in just two days after some observation. Mohanji made the ordeal of one week over in just one night.

Such love and grace is possible only from him.
Thank you so much my Gurudev for everything.

Always at Your Lotus Feet,
Neelu

We fed 70 kids at Plastic View today. They had apples, oranges, bread, chips and a sweetie.

‘ “Big doors swing on small hinges” this saying comes to mind when we visited the Baby Home, home to abandoned children, poverty and homelessness are often causes of child abandonment but we can make a difference by sharing unconditional love for them, one person at a time! In honor of Guru purnima we spent time at this home today giving them token gifts but most importantly our Love! Spare a thought for these beautiful embodiments of Love by visiting these places and just spreading love by giving them the gift of your time and love, so simple! Blessings!’ says Sulosh Pillai

Inspired by Guru Brahmarishi Mohanji and the incredibly transforming impact He has in every moment of my life, (in all of our lives) coupled with His lovingly, fatherly nature – a video and song dedication spontaneously came together as a tribute to my beloved Guruji on Guru Purnima. These words are a small attempt to try to describe the indescribable way that Baba makes me feel. The song dedication “You raised me up” by Westlife (2005) felt like the most appropriate dedication to the One who truly Raised me up in every aspect of this life.
This video dedication can be viewed here.
Jai Brahmarishi Mohanji! Love, gratitude and surrender to the Feet of Guru.Sholane Surjoo

A Mystique Yogi Nath Mohanji

“Mohan”
He captivates everyone
Like his name
He walks with a grace
Glow on his face

A Bewitching smile
With an innocence of a child

On his path
None goes empty
Animals or Humans
He showers his blessings

He gazes with compassion
With never ending love

Some address him as Guruji
Some call him Master or Baba
Some call him Father

For me he is my all in one
A “Big Brother”
An assurance he gives me
“I am always with you ”
Is a reminder from my beloved Guru
All I can say is I love him
All I can see is Love personified

Jai Matha ! Jai Bhagwan !!
Jai Mohanji ! Jai Guru Parampara !!

Rishiver. Pranaam!!! I cannot forget the day you majestically walked into my Life. I then understood the meaning of the maxim that when the time is ripe, the Guru will himself appear before you. My deep salutations n reverence at your Feet. I know nothing more. Happy Guru Purnima Father
Love you loads
My humble Pranam at your lotus feet
So blessed are all of us with you being with us at every moment of our life.

By Subhasree Thottungal

Pranam Mohanji. Happy Guru Poornima. I am out of words. Silence will probably be able to convey what I need to. Beyond this existence, in the true merger, You and I are One. Simply because I do NOT EXIST. Let me be WITH You, Let me be IN You, Let me BE You! After your beautiful message, I better keep Silence. Thank You for every moment.

I was looking forward to a blissful Guru Purnima day as the work front was light. Surprising it started with an Emergency at 5am. I was rushing to the hospital at the same time thanking Mohanji as I realised he had already planned my day. With His Grace all the four situations were handled and I cud reach back by evening. Was conscious of the Gurus day as well as instructions for the Lunar Eclipse ,when Mohanji said, Connect as much to me. Physical tiredness crept in yet prepared a small make shift Alter bed side and as I was by myself started a mixture of chanting, Mantras, Gayatri and few talks as means of connections with Father. Could go on till around 1.30 am when was conscious of total lunar eclipse. Same time like an small innocent child crying for ice cream, my mind also wanted to feel his presence but kept on telling myself to just stay connected as rest was his job. Was in and out of next side bed, still awake and throughout chanting something. By 3.30 am sat in the alter a bit more before retiring in about 15 minutes surrendering all what He could make my tired body do. Around 4am I am awakened, but to my utmost surprise not my myself but the VOICE OF MOHANJI who enters my room. No physical form seen but only in Ether form asking me, What about the Aarti? Is the speaker plugged in. All get ready for the Aarti.I immediately get up only to realise firstly that Mohanji is here completing my unfinished Sadhna with the Aarti.
The time coincided exactly with the end of the Eclipse. Secondly, the last candel finished the moment I opened my eyes after Aarti and thanking Mohanji for making it complete.
Thirdly, I was in Connect with all the Mohanji Family doing all Sewa throughout the day so am sure when Mohanji said, all of you get up, I truly believe that all of you were present in my subconscious in a big way. It was nothing to do with only me but the whole Mohanji Family.
Like always He just made me do my plugging in and rest of the Deliveries he made both on a physical and spirit level.
Am sure each one was blessed their own ways by Mohanji.
All in His feet🙏❤🙏
