Everything is Tradition

Mohanji Linga

By Nameshri Chetty

When we start writing our experiences, lots of thoughts go back and forth internally; thoughts of what should be shared, how it should be shared, if it’s appropriate, how will others receive it and so on. It’s almost like a tennis match, where the thoughts are like the ball, shuttling between the courts of reasoning. Upon witnessing my thoughts carefully, I came to the understanding that EVERYTHING IS TRADITION.

In my previous testimonials, I have mentioned that Mohanji had given me a list of places of worship, considered divinely powerful energy centres in India, and I have written about my experiences in some of these places as listed below.

1.Tirupati
2.Kurnool
3.Prashanti
4.Mookambika
5.Mahadeshwar
6.Vishnodevi
7.Shiv Khori
8.Rishikesh
9.Badrinath
10.Kedarnath
11.Arunachala (Thiruvannamalai)
12.Thrissur

I can almost hear people say – “so many places!” It’s a matter of awe indeed, but I covered them all at a very relaxed pace. Each place is a story in itself and if I get down to write about all my experiences, it would mean a never-ending read. So I will share a few, just to illustrate why I say – Everything is Tradition.

ARUNACHALA, Tamil Nadu, India

This is considered to be the “Kailash of the South”, and is true to the phrase. There is certain calmness amidst the strength that is felt, as in Kailash. I would like to mention that throughout my travels, I was literally and figuratively going with the flow. Honestly, I had neither expectations nor any hesitation during my journey. All I knew and felt was that I have left everything at Mohanji’s feet.

eye card

I had placed an eye card in every place possible, even in Kedarnath. Mamu had asked me for an eye card in the hustle and bustle. It was the last one I had and he placed it by the Kedarnath Linga. He later said that he was told to ask me for one.  It was the Tradition’s blessing.

Mohanji Pic

Back to the story – Arunachala with Mohanji was planned out of the blue. Although it was on my list, it was grace that showered us with Mohanji’s presence.

Upon visiting the main temple, I felt very ill, hence was unable to go in with the others. I honestly had no feelings of being upset, or being left out, as Mohanji’s teachings of insignificance had settled in (what is meant to be, will be, no ownership or doer-ship).

As we gathered for dinner that evening and everyone was greeting Mohanji, He said to me “Nameshri, you could not have asked for a better darshan, to which I replied, “But Mohanji, I was not there!” As I said this, something caught my eye. Embedded in his hair was a Bilva leaf (leaf of the wood apple tree, used in India to worship Shiva), which I happened to remove from His hair, quite spontaneously without his permission. Upon showing it to him, he said, “You must keep this forever. This is from the main Murti’s Abishekham (cleansing and purifying the idol before worship), the leaf is from there”. I was in utter disbelief! Many had come and gone before me, but none had seen that Bilva leaf that lay in his hair! The Tradition made itself known once again!

 

THRISSUR in Kerala, India

Through the grapevine and Mohanji’s extended family, I had heard that clinics in Thrissur are hard-core and really tested every individual. But I was assured from within, that I was in good hands and everything was for our own good and the higher purpose.

It was a true blessing to be there from the time I walked in, to the day I left. Through the treatments, I was able to experience past lives, have communions with divine beings and for the first time, I felt what Mohanji speaks about – “things with the body must be with the body, the intellect with the mind and spirit with the spirit”. Prior to this, I was always in the mind, with no time to experience “silence”.

I had decided to go to see the two main temples, one being a Temple of a Goddess and the other a Shiva Temple, both directly opposite to each other. I was received with such hospitality by strangers at the Temple of the Goddess, who even guided me throughout my time there. When it was time to cross the roads to visit the Shiva Temple, the heavens opened up in full glory. In spite of the torrential downpour, a crowd had gathered around the gate, as it was time for worship (in India there are specific times that one is allowed to worship at temples). Here too a gentleman came graciously up to me and spoke in broken English/sign language, guiding me through this ancient temple in the rain (Shree Adi Shankaracharya Samadhi is there).

One cannot see the Linga here, as it is covered in ghee (clarified butter). It is said that this ghee has healing properties, as Thrissur is the birthplace of Ayurveda (the traditional Hindu system of medicine). The sun had set and I was getting a bit nervous fathoming that I had to walk about a km to get a ‘tuk-tuk’ (automated tricycle) in the terrible weather and the place didn’t look safe for a woman to walk alone at night. As I was walking to fetch my shoes, an old lady came up to me and spoke in Malayalam (local language of Kerala). I told her, “Ma! I know only English”. She then mentioned in English that she too needed the company to go down. She enquired about the head doctor at the clinic (all this in perfect English), she even called for a ‘tuk-tuk’ for me and once I was safely seated, she disappeared. On entering the clinic, I mentioned about this encounter to the doctor.

Isn’t it strange that of the thousands of people near the temple, this woman with no shoes, wearing only anklets (a sign that she is probably poor and uneducated) could speak perfect English, knew the head doctor and accompanied me only till the safety point? Once again the Tradition had delivered me to my safe space for healing and safety.

In the last few months, I have come to understand that everything is Tradition. There are no good or bad, just opportunities for us to experience and grow in life. With Mohanji’s teachings and his grace, I have come to live some of what he has been trying to teach us. We are here to experience the world and for the world to experience us. With his grace, we are gently guided through life, always allowing us freedom of choice and experience.

I have written about a Bilva leaf, eye cards, past lives, healing and human interactions, which are honestly an odd combination, but it highlights the presence of the Tradition. Even to the oddest of experiences and those that we tell ourselves are insignificant, we must allow ourselves to acknowledge and offer gratitude to flow with life.

Our Tradition is very clear about “Liberation”, which is free from any ego or fear. It is just love and acceptance and Mohanji delivers just that. Hence TRADITION is equal to MOHANJI or vice versa.

fear

Mere Mahadev, I surrender graciously and humbly at your feet as you are the beginning and end of all that is and is not. 

“I glide on the breath of your grace”

Healing Hands

mohanji_grace

By Sakshi Gupta

How Mohanji works and how He goes out of His way to help His devotees is beyond explanation. I would like to share an experience of His help.

There’s some renovation work going on at my house. It was evening, so the carpenter and his team had already finished their work for the day. Two new windows were made for my daughter’s room. My daughter Swasti was playing in the garden along with her younger sister. She was very excited to see what the carpenter had done that day. So she went near the new window to open the window in great excitement. But as luck would have it, the window was not nailed in, so it fell straight on my daughter’s right toe.

I was sitting in the other corner of the garden. She came running towards me crying, “Mama, my foot, I can’t even move it.” I pacified her, gave her some water but she was crying so loudly in pain that even I couldn’t hold back my tears.

My husband and I took her to our bedroom and there I saw Mohanji’s picture. I started chanting and requested Mohanji to give her strength. I immediately messaged Mohanji about Swasti. Within one minute, he texted back –

“Don’t worry, I will do something. Give her vibhuti.”

The moment I messaged Mohanji, Swasti stopped crying. I could feel His presence.

I texted Mohanji that Swasti was settling down. He told me,

“I can see. I have placed my hands on her feet.”

Mohanji hands

Within five minutes, Swasti started smiling and she was comfortable.

It was magic and the healing touch of my Mohanji that did wonders. My daughter who was crying loudly had settled down within 10 minutes and smiling. As per our routine, we did our evening aarati of Mohanji and we had tears of gratitude.

Next day our doctor suggested an X-ray as there was swelling. So I went for an X-ray. Everyone was sure that there would be a fracture on her toe. But when your Master heals, nothing can touch you, not even the weight of a 50 kg heavy window.

With great difficulty but with the strength of my Mohanji, I took Swasti to the X-ray clinic. At first glance, the doctor said that there was a fracture. She placed Swasti’s foot on the table. I started chanting Mohanji’s Gayatri and closed my eyes.

healing

The moment I opened my eyes, I could see that the doctor was shocked. She was taking multiple pictures and close-ups. I asked her if everything was alright. She said, “How’s it possible? It’s impossible. With so much swelling, there is no Fracture?” She took a couple of more close-ups. Nothing was there. She then called her senior doctor. He saw her foot. He was sure of a fracture. Then he took pictures and I knew whose touch had created the magic. My Father Mohanji, for sure.

After taking so many pictures, the senior doctor wanted to take a picture of the other foot to compare. I was smiling as I knew now that these guys were confused.  Mohanji’s magic and healing touch was the power behind Swasti’s recovery.

The senior doctor took many pictures .but there appeared to be no cracks in the bone. Then he finally decided and declared that a crack may not be there. I could clearly see the shock on both the doctors’ faces!

Now Swasti is much better.  Since no crack was visible, the doctor told me it was a hair-line fracture and Swasti is recovering beautifully with the grace and blessings of my Guruji Mohanji.

The only reason behind her recovery and healing was My Guru’s healing touch…

Nothing can harm when we have grace and blessings from our Guru.

Love and gratitude always!

A Dream of Blessings

Mohanji_blessing_at Manasarovar

By Rekha Murali, Chennai, India

On 11th August, when Mohanji was in Manasarovar, it was unbearably hot in Chennai. I read Chapter 4 of Sripada Srivallabha Charitaamrutam and drifted off to sleep. During that short nap, I had a dream. In that dream, Murali (my husband) and I are at the Sripada Srivallabha temple. I suddenly see Deviji and then immediately look for Mohanji. He sees me, l take off my slippers and run to Him. He was wearing white. He blesses me, gives me a prasad made of banana and jaggery. He offers another prasad that appears like ghee (clarified butter), asks me to eat it and then gives me a few drops of milk – yet another prasad. All the prasad that I receive are normally given in temples in South India, particularly Kerala. Immediately, in a small copper vessel with a snout, He offers water (tirth). He then pours a little water on the vibhuti in my hand and asks me to put it in my mouth. He chants something and explains the meaning in Malayalam. I don’t understand the language and I ask Him repeatedly to say it in English. He struggles to do it. I am surprised and I ask Him the reason for His struggle with English. I hold His right hand. He looks at me, doesn’t say anything but continues to explain in Malayalam. I try to clarify a few words in English. He nods. (I don’t remember anything of what He explained). I soon realise He is in an expanded state and is trying to tell me something.

I then call my husband to get prasad from Mohanji.  When my husband approaches and takes prasad, I look at the man giving prasad, it is not Mohanji. Mohanji has moved further away and my husband goes to Him. Mohanji greets him and blesses us with akshhadha (rice grains).

Towards the end of the dream, Mohanji appeared dressed in black with a black bandana on His head and looked piercingly at me with dark intense eyes. To me, this vision depicts the power of Mohanji, who is beyond forms and is the Supreme Consciousness.

This was the first time that Mohanji appeared in my dream. It was on an auspicious day, a day when our Kailash yatris were with Mohanji in Manasarovar. We received pictures from Kailash that evening and Mohanji was dressed in white! The eyes that I saw in the picture were exactly what I witnessed in my dream!

Pada Puja for Mohanji

Incidentally, with Mohanji’s blessings, on 15th August, I did visit a Datta temple (Sripada Srivallabha Anushsthan) at Gokarna, Karnataka, India that was built by Sripada Srivallabha, soon after the dream.

 

I have always felt disheartened when reading about the dream experiences of others and wondered why Mohanji never appears in mine. With this dream, I understand that He appears in all forms when the time is right and the connection is strong!

The following question and Mohanji’s response are very relevant here.

Q: I dreamt of you, is it possible to connect with you even through dreams?

Mohanji : So any dream;  you interpret it as you wake up, “It’s a dream, I met Mohanji,” may not be a dream. It could be a connection which we had astrally.

I feel so happy that I am connected with Mohanji’s consciousness and received His blessings in such a beautiful way. Mohanji always reaches out to each one of us, showering us with His Grace.

Kailash not too far!

Kailash pilgrimage 2019. Mohanji and a group of nearly 100 yatris were at Lake Manasarovar. Thousands of miles away in a small part of South Wales, UK, in the Skanda Vale ashram, NellyAnne, Subhasree and Moushumi were doing Consciousness Kriya in the presence of the Lord Dattatreya idol. Their deep connection to Mohanji and their practice of Kriya with conviction and consistency had blessed them with incredible visions and experiences!

Incredible is the grace of Guru Mandala that through these visions of Mohanji in Kailash, it was proven yet again that when Mohanji travels on a pilgrimage, He just doesn’t take people physically, He takes everyone connected to His consciousness spiritually too!

Read on to feel the power of this grace!

By NellyAnne Noronha

I had registered my application for the Kailash trip 2019 with Mohanji. However, due to unavoidable reasons, I couldn’t make it. I accepted this as divine will and decided to go with the flow. I was reassured by Preeti Duggal ji, a core member of Mohanji family, that with Mohanji’s grace and blessings I will be able to experience the entire pilgrimage despite not being there in person. This assurance reminded me of Mohanji’s words during the satsang in Pinner in 2018 (my first meeting with Mohanji physically),

“Everyone present here is not because of a coincidence, We have all been connected for many lifetimes.”

Connection to Guru and the Tradition is shown in many ways. Another form of reassurance I received was through a sudden visit to a Sai temple in Wembley. This was certainly the call of Sai Baba! The visit to the temple became very special as unexpectedly I was able to be a part of a very sacred ritual as well as I receiving a shawl that was used to adorn Baba’s idol as a gift! The following day I saw a photo of the chief Priest of Shirdi offering a garland to Mohanji at the first meeting of all the Kailash Yatris in Kathmandu. This was indeed a reminder of the statement of Preeti Duggal ji. Experiencing Kailash Yatra with Mohanji!

 

The Master continued to shower his grace when I got a chance to join the ACT Foundation team for the Skanda Vale charity food stall on the 10th and 11th of August. On the 11th of August, there was also a special function of the reunion of Lord Muruga with his consorts.

After closing our food stall, Subhasree, Moushumi and I reached the hall where there was a multitude of people already sitting and enjoying the devotional bhajans. In a miraculous way, all 3 of us got some space to sit next to the Sisters right in front of the altar. We realised this was none other than Mohanji listening to the true cries of love and showering his grace on us to fulfil all our desires. Suddenly the Swami invited all 3 of us along with the community members and a few other volunteers to participate in the special ceremony of sprinkling petals of flowers to Lord Muruga and his consorts while chanting the auspicious 108 Namavali. This was beyond the ordinary and I knew from the bottom of my heart that it was Mohanji and the Guru Mandala’s blessings for us. We were closely participating in such a powerful and auspicious ritual, while the other devotees with Mohanji were at Kailash Mansarovar! The grace didn’t stop there. We even got the chance to join the procession with fire lamps in our hands going inside the main temple and we witnessed a very powerful aarti offered in the main Garbhagriha. During this I saw several Divine beings appear as beautiful lights moving up and around, dancing to unheard celestial music playing in the background, while Mohanji was blessing the devotees on the banks of Kailash Mansarovar.

Mohanji_blessing_at Manasarovar.jpg

I was deeply touched and moved to tears as I went through these divine experiences. This was no less than a direct pilgrimage to Kailash! These were truly blissful and gratifying experiences.

After these sublime experiences at the temple, we decided to visit the Lord Datta temple. The place was so serene that we all decided to do Kriya sitting in front of Lord Datta. Suddenly, I noticed a light shining from the Datta idol which was then replaced by the smiling face of Mohanji.

This was the most blissful experience for me as I felt Mohanji himself reassuring me of our connection, and my presence with him and the other devotees in Kailash.

My sincere gratitude to the Divinity and the entire Guru Mandala for such grace and blessings.

By Subhasree Thottungal

11th August 2019. A very auspicious day. While Mohanji and about a hundred devotees were at Kailash Manasarovar, we were in Skanda Vale during the same weekend, doing a charity food stall. The entire Skanda Vale was in bliss in celebrating the special function of the reunion of Lord Murugan with his consorts. The function brought so much awareness of the divine presence and high energy in this powerful place. I felt Mohanji’s presence there every moment. Mohanji and Skanda Vale have a special equation, which I have realised with some divine awareness, as narrated in my earlier blog, ‘The truth beyond revelations’.

Soon after the ceremonies inside the Subramanyam temple, with heightened energy and deep gratitude, Moushumi, NellyAnne and I went to the Lord Datta’s temple. It’s almost a year (1 year on 15thAugust), since this Lord Datta temple in Skanda Vale had come into existence and Mohanji had done the prana pratishta of the Lord Datta idol! As Mohanji had said at that time, a part of His soul is inside this Datta Idol! Whenever I visit here and see Lord Datta, I feel Mohanji’s presence.

Datta Prana Pratistha 1
Mohanji doing the Prana Pratistha of Lord Datta in Skanda Vale, 16th Aug 2018

When I reached the Datta temple, I felt the urge to do Kriya there. Moushumi and NellyAnne joined in too. Kriya in front of Datta took me to a different plane altogether. As if I was transported elsewhere! And then appeared this divine vision!

The vision of Mohanji in his white attire, sitting in front of Lake Mansarovar, with lots of people seated around him. The blue water of Mansarovar with tiny waves, blue sky with white clouds showing the presence of many divine beings. Though I could see many human beings, the only face that was clear was Mohanji’s.

When I finished Kriya, for a few moments, my hands were numb. I opened my eyes and looked at Datta’s face.Such a striking smile as if Mohanji was standing there and smiling at me and saying, “You wanted to see me at Mansarovar, right? Are you happy now?”

We all knew that on this same day Mohanji was at Mansarovar with all the other devotees. Mohanji had assured us, we will be with him, in spirit. How true is that!

The vision I had during Kriya showed this through the divine communion with my Guru.

Mohanji_Manasarovar_2019.jpeg
Mohanji in front of Manasarovar, 2019

The very next day, I received a picture someone sent from Kailash, which showed that the previous day, on 11th Aug, Mohanji sitting in front of Mansarovar and devotees around him! Mohanji in his white attire! Such a resemblance between my vision and this photo proved everything! The vision during Kriya was indeed a divine darshan that Mohanji showed me sitting in front of Datta thousands of miles away, but not too far from him, not too far from Kailash. Such grace. Such love from my Guru. Words falling short to describe!

This was not all. I was reminded of such grace happening in two earlier years when Mohanji had been to Kailash. Although I was far away physically, I still had the darshan of Mohanji in Kailash. I must write those two accounts too.

August 2016. Mohanji was in Kailash with about 80 devotees. I had been following the updates regularly. Photos from Kailash were not just beautiful scenic images. They had life and were passing the Shiva tattva energy. The power was such that sitting on the seashore of Lanzarote (a small island, part of the Canary Islands in Spain, where we were on a family holiday), a small hillock just inside the sea, felt like Kailash. “Om Namah Shivaay” chanting came out spontaneously. Suddenly, the clouds above took a circular form. The epicentre lying just above the tip of the small hillock! Morning sun rays piercing through these clouds indicated definitely something divine!

At that point I had such connection with Kailash, I felt as if I was with Mohanji in Kailash. I thought, next Kailash with Mohanji, I must go.

The year passed. Kailash with Mohanji in 2017 came. However, I couldn’t go! While Mohanji and the devotees were in Kailash in 2017, devotees all over the world were doing a 24 hour long continuous chanting on 16th July 2017. In London, at my home, we were doing the group chanting, during which I had a vision that

Mohanji was standing inside Mansarovar. The water was blue coloured and crystal clear. I then saw all the Gods & Goddesses, Ganesh, Lakshmi, Saraswati and all the other Gods in the sky, showering flowers on him.

This vision was so clear and so divine. After the chanting was over, I shared this vision with everyone and expressed my gratitude to Mohanji for giving me darshan while in Mansarovar.

Two days later, a photo came in with the update from Kailash, the photo of Mohanji inside Mansarovar. This matched the vision I had during chanting.

Mohanji_Manasarovar_1_2017.jpg
Mohanji inside the Manasarovar, 2017

My heart was filled with deep gratitude to have received this darshan despite being physically so far away in London!

However, somewhere inside me, I had a slight feeling of guilt. Where did my desire for Kailash go? How did I leave this opportunity to go to Kailash with Mohanji in 2017? A few months later, in November 2017, I got a chance to be with Mohanji in Serbia and I couldn’t hold myself but to express this feeling of guilt to him. The spontaneous answer that came from Mohanji, left me speechless.

“I just don’t carry people to Kailash physically, I carry people spiritually too. You have been to Kailash with me spiritually. Your desire has been fulfilled. Hence no more desire.”

Well, what more did I need to understand?

Indeed Mohanji carried me with Him in 2016 and in 2017 too! This year in 2019, before Mohanji left for Kailash, I had no doubt, I knew Mohanji would carry me with him, along with all the other devotees connected to him. Mohanji’s message for all connected to Him,

“You are inside me. How can you be separate from me?”

filled my heart with gratitude and profound love for the unconditional love and compassion he has for me, for all of us!

Through this vision during Kriya in front of Lord Datta, Mohanji proved this yet again! Not that I needed any proof. But he knows that this naïve heart still desires every single vision of my beloved Guru, physically or astrally! His darshan makes me pure, makes me complete, liberates me from all worldly desires.

I am so deeply touched by the grace that the Tradition and Mohanji shower on me (in fact on all of us), much beyond our expectations and imaginations. My deep gratitude to Mohanji my Guru, and this sacred Tradition that we belong to!

Jai Shree Datta.

Jai Mohanji.

By Moushumi Patankar

On the 10th and 11th of August, my family and I were with the ACT Foundation team for the food seva in Skanda Vale. On the 11th, after attending the powerful reunion ceremony of Lord Subramanyam, Subhasree, NellyAnne and I went to the Lord Datta temple.

When we were in front of Lord Datta, we decided to sit down for Kriya.

As soon as I sat, I felt as if my whole body was rotating in 360 degrees. After a few moments, I saw beautiful lights; blue/light green just like the colour of a beautiful lake, orange/ yellow/gold like bright sunshine or a havan (sacred fire). I then saw many faces. The first face was of my beloved Datta swaroopa Mohanji who was right in front of us, smiling at us. And then a thought, aah so many faces along with Mohanji’s! In the end, just before finishing Kriya I saw Mohanji’s aura!

I realised the vision I had during this Kriya in front of Datta was of Mohanji with the other Kailash Yatris in front of Mansarovar! Without any expectations, without any imagination, Mohanji and Lord Datta graced me with this divine vision, so far away from Kailash.

My deep gratitude to Mohanji for filling every single moment of my life with his grace.

Connection with Consciousness

mohanji canada

Here are two blogs by Dr. Nikita Naredi and Namika Keshri. The two beautiful experiences show Mohanji’s presence without presence and the energy that we carry by being connected with him.

Faith and surrender

Dr Nikita Naredi

nikita 2

I am sharing an incident with you all which only reaffirms the love Mohanji has for his devotees. If you are connected to him and completely surrender to him; you don’t need to worry about anything.

Being in a transferable job, we have been staying in a rented apartment for the last 3 and a half years in Pune. Mohanji has visited this house physically when we had just arrived in Pune and twice after that. We love this house and have many times considered buying it too, but due to some new developments, it couldn’t be done. The owner of the apartment had confirmed that we could continue to stay here till we had to move out on a transfer again and this was a big reassurance for us.

Two days back when I returned home from work, I found my husband Amit and my daughter Antara perturbed and anxious. They said there was some ‘not so good’ news for us. They told me that the owner had called to ask us to vacate the house in the next three months as he wanted to sell the property. My daughter’s exams were approaching and shifting to a new house for a year and again shifting to a new place next March (due to the imminent transfer) seemed a daunting affair. I was standing in my bedroom and I was facing Mohanji’s picture when we were conversing. I just looked at His picture and said: “It will not happen”.  Amit and Antara found my reaction very awkward.  I said Mohanji will take care. I told them I will speak to the owner that night and request him again. I called him in the evening and explained the circumstances to him. He said it was difficult but he promised to speak to his lawyer and get back to us. I was still very calm, unlike my usual self. On the contrary, Amit was worked up thinking of shifting in the next two months.  I had reconciled to shifting too if Mohanji desired so.

Next day, our landlord called us up late in the night and said he had spoken to the lawyer and that his financial crisis could be sorted out differently. So he need not sell the property immediately.  He reassured us that we could stay in the present apartment until we were transferred out.  Antara and Amit were jubilant on hearing the news and I was calm again, not reacting at all. They were again amazed.  I said, “If I did not get disturbed yesterday, why should I be happy today?”

It is his grace which makes us sail through all hurdles and obstacles.  Not only does he bail us out of disturbing scenarios but gives us the strength to face them if it has to be.

Transformation through Mohanji’s Energy

by Nimika Keshri

I met Mohanji for the first time when I was in Bosnia in June 2019 for the Kriya Intensive programme. I had many experiences during those 5 days that I stayed in Mohanji’s presence. He made sure that I released all the stored and suppressed emotions within me during the time I was there. Before narrating what I want to share, I am sharing something that happened before I went to Bosnia.

Saibaba

Here in Finland, we have a couple of Shirdi Sai Baba’s devotees and we have a small Sai Temple called Sai Dham. I know many of the people who were responsible for starting and maintaining Sai Dham here. One of them is an Indian lady called Deepa, who is also my neighbour. We had met a couple of times and she was an acquaintance. Before going to Bosnia, I had a dream where I saw myself in an ashram and I also saw Mohanji there. I felt that I was there to get initiated for Kriya and Mohanji assured me that I will be initiated when the time was right. I also saw Deepa, my neighbour, in the ashram. A couple of days later, I met Deepa and informed her about my dream. She was unaware of Mohanji, but she is a true devotee of Sai Baba. During those days, I was doing the Power of Purity (PoP) meditation regularly and could feel a lot of positivity within. During one of our conversations, I informed her that I was doing a meditation that was helping me a lot. After a few days, she messaged me saying she wanted to meet me to know more about the meditation. I welcomed her and told her whatever I knew. I also told her, once I was back from Bosnia, I was willing to help others do the meditation. Maybe I will know more after my visit.

When I was in Bosnia, I bought a bracelet and got it blessed by Mohanji for her. I just felt that she needed it. When I returned to Finland, the very next day, I knocked on her door to give her the blessed bracelet. To my surprise, she immediately hugged me and then said that she could feel so much positivity within me. I knew it was Mohanji’s energy. I had a deep yearning to start Mohanji’s awareness in Finland and started organising meditation sessions in Sai Dham. My neighbour Deepa was the first one to join and she felt blessed by attending the PoP meditation.

The second person was a lady called Priya di by most of us, who is one of the first people to take the initiative to start Sai Dham in Finland. She hugs me every time we meet and she has so much of motherly love that I always liked to be in her company. Once a month, we spend an evening in Sai Dham doing bhajans and aarati for Shirdi Sai Baba. I visited one of these events in June. As I entered the temple, she hugged me as usual. But this time the hug was much longer than usual. I soon informed her about Mohanji and my Bosnia visit. She was very happy and told me she felt something was different in me when she hugged me today. She hugged me again and said that she could see Sai Baba while she was hugging me this time. I felt so blessed and thanked Mohanji and Baba Sai for enabling others to feel the Masters’ presence through me.

From self-hate to self-acceptance

By Nikolina Dragojević, Serbia

It was my fifth year at the Bosnian Pyramids with Mohanji. Just like every other program with Mohanji (and being on this path), a lot of acceptance and flexibility is required to pull off the logistics… 100+ participants, 10+ locations, unpredictable weather and our flexibility being tested.

bosanke piramide 2

One nice morning, I woke up with my throat completely closed. ‘Closed’ meaning I couldn’t swallow anything: food, water, not even my saliva. I wasn’t surprised as I have been struggling with my throat for many years already and this has happened before, 3 years ago, at the Bosnian Pyramids as well.

bosanske piramide 2016

That year in 2016, I managed to get through the entire 5-day program only with the IV (intravenous) therapy – no food/water/supplements. My energy was high, my mood was great like nothing was happening, I managed to climb all the pyramids with no struggle. What would be the usual reaction to that? Impossible.

But, ‘impossible’ does not exist in the dictionary of Mohanji’s Path

This 2019, the same thing happened in the middle of the program. I just woke up one day and couldn’t swallow. Not surprised at all, because I was aware of some internal battles happening that might cause this.

I went for 2 days without food and water before we decided it was time to get IV therapy and ask Mohanji what to do.

bosnia 2019

I knew what the trigger was. A few days before the Bosnian Pyramids program, I was in a situation where I felt like I didn’t do any good, I failed, I wasn’t good enough, I was misunderstood, not accepted for who I was, all sorts of insecurities were coming to the surface.

As advised by Mohanji, we called Zoran, an amazing man and a great kinesiologist from Sarajevo, who did the treatment and told me things that were lying deep inside me causing this reaction.

The following morning it was time to decide if I should continue travelling with Mohanji and go to Slovenia, as the team there needed support for the upcoming program, or if I should go back home to Serbia.

Going to Slovenia was risky as there was no one to give me IV and I didn’t have insurance. Plus it’s a very long journey of more than 8 hours and I hadn’t eaten for 4 days… but I would travel with Mohanji.

When we asked Him what to do, He insisted that it was up to me and how my body felt.

“You should not suffer; you should do what’s natural to you.”

(Just the night before  Zoran and I had discussed how indecisive I was, and here I was in a position to make a big decision. )

with Mohanji 1

But Mohanji also gave me the biggest lecture and so much clarity as to why this was happening. The situation mentioned earlier was just a trigger. But the cause lay much deeper. My self-hate and lack of self-acceptance were causing this. I was punishing my body and denying food and water to my body, not taking care of myself. Self-criticizing, self-judging, self-hating. On the opposite side is self-acceptance.

Mohanji will not interfere with my karmic constitution, but He is giving me a platform which I can use to change that. Now. Self-acceptance. Stop with criticizing, comparing, judging myself and others. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. I just need to make one conscious decision. Self-acceptance.

When we have accepted ourselves, life becomes purposeful. We become Purpose. Power.

mohanji-quote-purpose-re-invent-yourself.jpg

My eyes were full of tears. Every single word was hitting hard and straight in the centre. He is giving a platform, He is giving energy, He is empowering us. But we need to take that one step.

How often do you meet someone who is straight to the point, so honest, open and direct? And giving you just what you need at that point. Probably more than what we are even aware of and able to understand. Will we ever be able to understand?

I had a big urge to go to Slovenia but now I wasn’t sure if I was being masochistic (and choosing to suffer) or I really should go. With a little push by lovely friends, I decided to have more faith, surrender, and go to Slovenia.

With a hidden smile on His face when Mohanji said, “Very good” I knew; whatever happened, it was going to be okay.

Devi was sitting in the car seat next to me, just in case, I needed Mai-Tri session on the way. Somewhere halfway, I started feeling nausea and weakness. Devi started with Mai-Tri and I was feeling worse by the second. Nausea was getting stronger and stronger.

I used to constantly wonder how I would vomit with this tight throat and oesophagus, was it even possible, would I choke… And here I was, in the car, on the way to Slovenia, with a completely closed throat and a strong urge to vomit. With so much pain and not being able to breathe properly, thoughts of panic started coming up. At that moment, I was just telling myself ‘But He is sitting in front of you, what could happen to you?’ I was getting calmer, started vomiting and all of a sudden, the pain was gone. We took a quick break at the petrol station and there was me wondering if I could vomit which also meant that I could swallow as well, right? And yes, I could. 🙂 My throat opened up and I could have a cup of tea after 4 days of being without food and water. What a blessing!

My Guru

It’s not just that He is there holding our hand all the way, helping us, guiding us, but He is there to empower us to deal with all our insecurities and fears.

I know there is still a long way for me to go. I could feel a lot of blockages still in my body, in my throat.

I could swallow but not nearly as well as before the trip to Bosnia.

I went back home and started contemplating on everything He told me in Bosnia.

‘Self-acceptance. More positivity. No judging. No criticizing. No comparing. Take care of yourself so that you can give unconditionally to others.’

All my non-acceptance and self-hate peaked the moment I was told I won’t be able to go to Kailash.

Every single negative thought that was there come to the surface. Every single one.

‘I’m not worth it, I’m not good enough. I’m not doing enough. I don’t even belong to this Path. Why am I here? What for? Do I need all of this in my life? What’s the purpose?’ I started comparing myself to others. I started feeling resentment towards some close people from the team.  Why was I even given the hope that there was a chance for me to go?

I had a meeting that I needed to attend at that time and I was on edge, not wanting to pick up the call. Why? Why would I do this? I can’t do it anymore. I don’t want it.

Tears were running down my face as never before. Negative thoughts were suffocating me. I cried uncontrollably and was overwhelmed by sadness. I could never have imagined I would react in this way. I couldn’t believe what was happening.

Fire of awareness

 

But one thing in me was strong – awareness. I could feel and differentiate the negative thoughts that were mine and those negative thoughts that were coming from outside. I had the awareness that all those comparisons and resentment wasn’t mine. And I was able to discard it. I was aware that this shall pass as well. I had the awareness that there was a bigger picture to all this. I had the awareness that this was a big cleansing; a big test for me.

I managed to get up, take the call, complete the meeting as though nothing had happened. Then went back to bed to cry.

The next day I woke up feeling a little sad but much better. I had a Mai-Tri session with Milica. There was so much clarity. I felt so much positivity. I felt so much lighter. Like something big had fallen off my shoulders. I knew what I had to do. Just to have faith and keep moving, keep walking, accepting myself.

That night I woke up with the feeling I have something in my mouth. I thought it was the homoeopathic medicine that I had taken before going to bed. But when I took it out, it was a stapler pin! Metal stapler pin. I was shocked. I remember very well brushing my teeth before bed, drinking water, taking homoeopathic medicine. There was no way this could appear in my mouth from some food.

Pin
Pin

My first thought was ‘Oh my God what would have happened if this went through my throat?’

I started feeling grateful to Mohanji for always taking care of me and being there for me.

The following day when Milica spoke, I was told that it was a huge cleansing, some heavy energies were released and that was why the pin had appeared in my mouth.

Along with that big sign, that huge blockages were being removed, there were little signs as well that showed me I was trying, I was doing something for myself, I was taking that one step forward. I started drinking more water, and everyone who knows me knows that I would never drink, even 1l of water in 2-3 days. I stopped eating sugar, and everyone knows I’m the biggest sugar addict. I just adore chocolate!

And the biggest shock of all, I signed up for yoga classes. In February 2019 during HSTY Teacher Training, the team was unable to convince me to do even 5 minutes of yoga in 10 days. And here I was starting yoga classes.

It was always clear to me that being with Mohanji means fire. It’s always challenging, pushing the mind’s boundaries. But despite the tough times, I remain here because I know why I’m here. He gives strength, He gives awareness. He empowers us to go through ups and downs to (re-) discover the higher Self. He provides the possibilities and platforms for us to progress in life, to serve, to clear our garbage, to develop what we need and drop off what we don’t need, to grow.

He gives us everything we need, at the given moment, as per our capacity, without us asking for anything, even though we might not understand at that point.

Sometimes it might not be easy, especially when tough situations happen. But I remain here, despite all the challenges.

It is up to us to use this opportunity in the best possible way.

Dreaming of Kailash

fulfilment

By Harpreet Wasir

As much as I thought I may make it for Kailash this time, it was not possible. As Mohanji said, I had to do my dharma as my son Aman’s medical admissions had just completed, and thus I could not get any more leave of absence.

From within, my heart and soul was with Mohanji and Kailash. How could he ever leave any devotees’ honest wishes unfulfilled? Thus, Mohanji came in my dream last night.

kailash

 

It was Kathmandu and he was sitting amidst all the pilgrims wearing a white robe. I entered the crowded area and started walking towards him. As I approached him, Mohanji stood up and opened his arms. I walked up to him and hugged him. He held me how a Father would hold and hug his child, not to let go. I was physically feeling the hug despite being asleep. After a while, I let go and realised that my Kailash came to me to fulfil me completely.

“Mind is the canvas that we paint our experiences on. The mind is the canvas, it is the vast sky. Desires are the stuff that dreams are made of.” 

Mohanji

The Mind is the Sky

I later came to know that Mohanji was actually wearing white yesterday. For me it was an understanding that our Guru is always with us, holding us and answering our sincere questions and desires.

Our deep faith in Him will always bring an answer to everything.

Offering my gratitude with folded hands!
