This blog is the continuation of the Part 1 of Bhima Pushkar 2018 at Nivruthi Sangam with Mohanji
After completing all rituals at Nivruthi Sangam, Mohanji started on His journey to Hyderabad airport. However, before travelling to Bangalore, He had one more job to finish, which no one would have even envisaged!
Meeting the 92 Year old saint Swami Ramanananda Saraswati:
The 92-year-old Saint Ramanananda Saraswati, is one of the pontiffs of Shri Datta Peetham, chosen by Vittal Babaji. Due to his physical restrictions, He couldn’t physically be present at Nivruthi Sangam for the Bhima Pushkara. Hence, Mohanji himself went to the Swami’s residence, despite the long journey amidst time constraints. Bhima Pushkara dip for Swami can only be accomplished this way. Why so? We will understand this soon.
Swami Ramanananda was no doubt elated to see Mohanji. While talking to everyone, he gave a clear message, “Mohanji is none other than Lord Datta himself.” He continued, “Mohanji is Lord Dakshinamoorthy and Bhagawan Ramana Maharishi, together.”
Swamiji then recited a shloka to convey that, “Mohanji is the one, who operates through silence and the one who has achieved “Poornatwa” or Completion.” This shloka of Lord Dakshinamoorthy explains it all!

1: (Salutations to Sri Dakshinamoorthy) Whose Exposition through Profound Silence is Awakening the Knowledge of the Supreme Brahman in the Hearts of His Disciples; Who is Himself Youthful …
2: … but is Sitting Surrounded by Old and Great Sages who are Devoted to Brahman,
3: The Hands of the Supreme Spiritual Teacher is Forming the Cin-Mudra (gesture of the Knowledge of Brahman) and Whose Appearance is Still and Blissful,
4: Who is Rejoicing in His Own Self which is reflected on His Blissful Face; Salutations to Sri Dakshinamurthy.
Swamiji told to Mr Krishna Murthy and the others who were with Mohanji, ” Do not leave His hand ever!”
These words of wisdom from a saint of such high stature are reminders to all of us – a reminder of the reality of who Mohanji is, behind this ordinary human physical appearance.
Swamiji very passionately took Mohanji to his shrine room and also showed his personal diary in which he keeps Mohanji’s card like a treasure of lifetime.
During the loving conversation, Mohanji kept His hand on swamiji’s chest and said, “I always live here!”
Swamiji’s joy upon meeting Mohanji was unbound. On a lighter note, Mr Krishna Murthy asked swamiji, “were you waiting for Mohanji to come?”
Swamiji laughed and told “No. I was waiting for him (pointing his finger to the sky), to come to me through Mohanji”. And he laughed.
As Mr Krishna Murthy narrated, it was not just humility and respect that Mohanji showed towards Swami Ramanananda by visiting him straight after Bhima Pushkar dip. It was Swamiji’s aradhya (worshipped) Lord Datta’s blessings in form of Mohanji’s visit to him to shower him with the purity of Bhima Pushkar!
Because swamiji could not come to Pushkar, the Lord took Pushkar to him! Such is the power of devotion, and such is the compassion of Lord Datta.
After meeting Swami Ramanananda, Mohanji then took the late evening flight to Bangalore to be available for the Ammucare Volunteer meet beginning on 13th October!
48 hours of a Marathon race, from 10th October to 12th October, that Mohanji took with just few hours of physical rest, after the intense journey to Thiruvanamalai, was for a much larger purpose. Mohanji had to ignore His physical rest and comfort because He was on a mission. There are an uncountable number of beings waiting for their Moksha through Pushkara dip, and Mohanji had to take them all the way!
This powerful event of a dip at Bhima Pushkar will remain a silent witness of the beyond ordinary mission of the extra ordinary Master, I still lovingly call “Jeans wale Avadhoota” – “The Avadhoota in Jeans”.
Koti Pranama at your feet, Mohanji.
Jai Shree Guru Datta.
