Private Satsang with Mohanji (15 August 2020) – Feedback
For the occasion of the 50th episode milestone of Mohanji Speaks Podcast celebration, Mohanji provided a Satsang to everyone who submitted their video/audio expressing how the Mohanji Speaks Podcasts have positively impacted them.
He spoke about various topics that were discussed in his podcasts. The session was very powerful and transformative on so many different levels, and many people got answers and clarity they were looking for.
Here are the testimonials.
I’m immensely grateful to you all for organising a private satsang yesterday, and to Mohanji for taking the time to speak to all of us. It was the first time I saw Mohanji live and got an opportunity to speak to him.
I was choked, in tears and didn’t know how to express myself and thank him. I just can’t forget that moment
As a father patiently listens to his child, Mohanji was listening to us and answering the questions beautifully. He was pouring love and compassion for us throughout the video and I just couldn’t hold my tears. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to him and to all the people connected to him. Thank you so much again. Looking forward to the next one.
Thank you for this opportunity of having Satsang with Mohan ji! I do not have words to express what I got. It is beyond words to describe the bliss and love of Baba! Thank you very much! I am very very grateful for this opportunity!
First thing I want to thank you all for giving me the opportunity to join the satsang. I never expected I would meet (virtual) Mohanji this early. I came to know about Mohan ji in March 2020. and I started incorporating his teachings in my daily life.
I was so happy to meet Mohanji and I couldn’t even say a word. But I know that he knew everything about everybody.
Hopefully next time I will open up myself.
Thank you so much!
It’s always a great experience to be with Mohanji, see him and hear him. Hear your name and special personal blessings and especially when Mohanji says am with you.
My personal experience during the session was that I had written a question but it was not asked, and suddenly I heard Mohanji explaining about patterns, how they keep repeating themselves. How we can get rid of them and change our future lives.
Through MTM the past life of mine and present has some very similar patterns and situations. Through his words all became clear.
Then Dr. Wazir’s experience and Mohanji said when you operate I am always with you. He wanted to leave in 2013 but is still performing heart surgeries in 2020 all Mohanji’s grace.
Beautiful little Sara’s connection. Mohanji is very fond of her and she is deeply connected to Mohanji. Once before also he had asked us to listen to her and see how her love and pure feelings connect her to Mohanji. Even his picture has power to converse with her.
I too met him in my sleep, once I asked him and got a reply I do my work, you know it’s real or dream. So all what the mind wanted to know and listen to was given and beyond that a deep soul connection became stronger.
Pranam Mohanji, I am so very grateful for the opportunity to be part of a live Satsang with You. When it was announced that there will be a live satsang related to the Podcast and the requirement was for the participants to make a video and post it on social media platforms. I had cried sitting in front of your picture. I had commented, how unfortunate I am to miss this opportunity (I have major reservations about social media platforms, taking pictures or videos). It was not a random coincidence that I connected with Lakshmi Mohananda from South Africa recently. I expressed my request if an audio file can also be accepted instead of a video. Lakshmi ji said she was thinking about it as well since there were few other devotees who have expressed the same desire. The following day Lakshmi ji messaged me that Mohanji had already given the instruction to also accept audio files as some of the devotees may be hesitant to do a video recording. This is HIS kindness and grace to create this opportunity for HIS devotees and fulfill their desires.
My experience on the live Satsang with Mohanji:
How to find words to describe HIS generosity and grace. Mohanji was so kind to all of us. HE so generously gave HIS time. HE patiently answered the questions of the devotees and showered us with HIS blessings. I know that HE stayed much longer than the scheduled time, only to grant devotees their wishes and grant them with HIS darshan. If I have to sum up my experience, Mohanji’s motto does justice, “One family, one unit”. Through the Satsang there were experiences that were shared that felt like mine. As if someone else was sharing the transformation I have experienced within me and in my family, with my kids. The comments, devotees’ experiences and questions-answers were so beautifully synchronized. While answering a devotees question Mohanji simultaneously addressed my lingering questions and doubts. HIS comments to a devotee that HE has been beside him and kept HIS promise since 2013, gave me such great assurance. Mohanji confirmed with this devotee that HIS Padukas are at her home and HE is there in her home (she had just told her name and from where she is from, Mohanji commented even before she could complete her sentence). How blessed Supreet would have felt to have this confirmation directly from Mohanji. Even though I didn’t say those words, HE assured me that having HIS Padukas home is the same as having HIM home. HE confirmed that HE is with me too in my home since I do have Padukas at my house.
Mohanji satisfied my simple desire in response to another devotee’s query of meaning of “connecting to His consciousness”. HE simply said, “just remember me”. For a literal person like me this is easy to understand and follow. HE commented on the Guru principle. HE addressed how one may know if they are growing in their spiritual journey. HIS answers had such deeper meaning for me and penetrated my heart.
During the Satsang, something in me was assuring me that HE is here at home with me so instead of asking for an affirmation I rather made a foolish comment on having a filter option. It is a process and I am embarrassed about moments where I lose my cool and HE is sitting right there in the living room. So I was wondering if there may be filters that can help. Mohanji in HIS typical way replied, ” there is no need for a filter, there is nothing good or bad, whatever it is, is”. Later on contemplating on HIS response I realized that it isn’t about asking a filter from Mohanji, instead I need to be improving my own awareness and connection within with HIS grace. That is going to be the filter! I need to put in more effort and continuously and tirelessly work toward building my awareness and follow HIS teaching. I need to consistently practice witnessing life events as an audience and take them as just experiences rather than getting emotionally engaged into it. And the best way to know if I am making progress in going within is if today I could practice it more consistently than yesterday, just baby step at a time.
I am overwhelmed writing my experience, my throat is choking and I am in tears. This is the effect of the grace of a master when I have not even met HIM in person.
As Mohanji will say our mind is like a monkey and I am no different so after the Satsang, there was a thought / doubt in my mind, “why didn’t I ask Mohanji for a confirmation that HE is home with me”. I was sitting in front of Mohanji’s picture and talking to HIM. I heard Mohanji’s voice saying, “you hear me, don’t let doubts pop up” and an instinct was there to call Alpa ji (Mohanji’s Acharya from Toronto). I called Alpa ji and she shared her own experiences with Mohanji and assured me that it’s all Mohanji’s leelas. We can have whatever questions but when we come in front of HIM, whatever is needed comes to the surface. I got my answer from Alpa ji. This is Mohanji’s grace. I informed Alpa ji that there was an instinct to call her and she commented that she was expecting a call from me anytime and knew I would call her.
Mohanji I know it is Your grace, kindness and love that there are changes within myself and outside. Without Your grace nothing is possible. YOU have given me strength to get through my difficult days, YOU are holding my hand, guiding me and walking with me. YOU are connecting me to people who are helping me in my spiritual journey. Mohanji, YOU have been with me in so many ways. Being an average simple devotee I can only understand that which is within my capacity to realize but my instinct tells me that YOU have been with me in ways that are beyond my understanding.
There is so much YOU have given generously. I am so deeply grateful for Your love, kindness and generosity. Mohanji, please always stay with me and my family. Bless me with awareness. I always want to hear YOU and YOUR leelas, see YOU, share YOUR leela’s, sing YOUR glory. I always want to feel YOUR embrace, I have lost a lot and lived my life in ignorance without realization, please always guide me Mohanji. I hope one day YOU will give me an opportunity to meet YOU in person. LOVE YOU Mohanji. My humble salutations to Your lotus feet.
P.S.I am so thankful to the entire Podcast team. Lots of love and hugs to Maheshwari ji and Lakshmi ji for being the extension of Mohanji and arranging for me to attend the Satsang. Thank you Greenwood for modulating the Satsang. You are so blessed to have the close proximity to Mohanji. I am very very grateful. Love you all. And please, please arrange more live Satsangs with Mohanji. It’s such a blessing especially during these tough times.
This was a totally new experience especially during COVID times. It was firstly an expectance with awareness of a different way of connect with Mohanji using media.
Then it was so clear of so many different frequencies merging into single frequency in the presence of our Master.
Each one including me was one to one amidst all being in one large group globally.
Each one was answered to our souls fulfilment despite having asked a question or not.
This was surely a very acceptable way of communication with Mohanji.
I honestly did not find any difference in connecting with Mohanji having not been in his physical presence.
The coordination by the team was flawless which added to the comfort of the audience.
I surely look forward to the next session and which to have a one to one video connect with Mohanji.
Looking forward for some way of receiving Shaktipat from Mohanji in future.
Maybe things like this in smaller coherent groups may answer this.
Thank you one and all for this session and all the efforts put in physically making Mohanji’s presence there with me and all attendees.
Lots of love always.
This way I want to thank Mohanji from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity he gave us. The satsang was beautiful, Mohanji as always full of love for all of us, simple, natural, spontaneous, patient, nurturing and witty. I got answers to all my questions (although I didn’t ask any) and more. Also, he beautifully described the value of having an available Guru in our life, now fully in my own essence I realize how much of a blessing it is. What impressed me the most was how Mohanji vividly described how we pass the same patterns from life to life, and how long it takes us to become aware of them and how important it is therefore to make this life purposeful and finally realize true liberation. And another important thing that Mohanji often emphasizes to us, in the Podcasts and in this Satsang, how important it is to fully accept ourselves with all our virtues and weaknesses, just the way we are. Thank you dear Mohanji for waking us up, transforming us, pointing to the source within us that can hardly wait for us to embrace it! Mohanji, thank you for being with us in this life!
I would like to share my gratitude to Mohanji and the team behind the podcasts for this wonderful event. The whole idea behind the private satsang, of applying our own video testimonials was great, because we had the opportunity to learn so many things from that.
First we learned to reflect upon what a gift Mohanji’s podcasts are and how much they mean to us in terms of inspiration, upliftment and introspection.
Also we learned that we should not take these podcasts or Fathers satsang for granted.
The idea of earning access to a satsang by doing a testimonial was actually great because so much creativity blossomed and people really did their best in order to achieve that goal. We had to put ourselves into action instead of just sitting at home on the couch being served by Mohanji.
It seemed that a lot of people met Mohanji for the first time and had joined either through listening to the podcast series or through the 41 days of Meditation Sadhana and it was wonderful to feel their joy and being a part of their happy experience.
My God. Mohanji was so perfect. He explained complete existence in such a simple way. My heart expanded after that talk with Mohanji. He removed all of the clutter from my mind. He showed another dimension of Himself to me. I am so happy to hear there will be more such meetings. Yeeyy!! Jai Mohanji
For me, hailing from a working class northern UK family, our formative spiritual experiences were mostly cold, foreboding and full of dire warnings, laced with unmentionable consequences should we err from the God given path.
Shivering on a cold pew in a shadowy church dressed up in our Sunday best, no-one ever had the answers we children craved – rendering our spiritual selves confused and wilting, devoid of a foundation to build upon.
Fast forward 59 years and in one short week at a Mohanji retreat in Serbia Nov 2019, all of my answers are laid out before me. Answers to questions I’d forgotten I’d had. And answers to those I’d not even asked.
Simple, honest and down to Earth yet at the same time, dense with ancient history, and meanings packed tight with unknown jargon for my Western ears to even attempt to assimilate.
And then came, Mohanji’s podcasts – Mohanji Speaks – like a breath of fresh air to my overwhelmed Western mind.
Short snippets of common sense and guided wisdom, delivered with bite-sized, manageable information – much easier to digest and ponder for the uninitiated novice like me.
Despite Mohanji being 5 yrs my junior, for me, Mohanji is the true Father, the Father I ached for, the guide for my souI.
Just hearing Mohanjis voice never fails to make me smile, his dry, infectious humour, never far from the surface is a joy to behold.
A trillion miles away from the bellowing sermons from the draughty pulpits of my childhood.
Thank you Mohanji ️
Firstly i’d like to thank you all for putting this together, together you all have reached out to a lot of people directly and indirectly.
I am 36 yrs old and throughout my life even though i come from a big family with lots of brothers and sisters I always felt alone and a few months ago I started my journey with Mohanji baba. I have never once felt this loneliness since. Hearing him speak, his podcasts, his satsangs and everything he is and does is so fulfilling for me. The emptiness has left through one door and Mohanji came through the other.
I have found a deeper meaning in my life. I look at things that happen daily in a different light. I almost see Mohanji wherever I go, I see him in his white attire walking before me. For the first time in my life I feel someone, not just even anyone, but a saint, a god avatar and everything Mohanji is made up of is with me. It is almost unexplainable what is happening to me, my thoughts, my views. Everything about me is turning from darkness to light. I feel secure in the arms of Mohanji. I sometimes see him laughing or smiling and saying to me “you got this, you don’t need me” it’s like I hear it. And sometimes I’ll be smiling back and my kids will ask me mummy what’s wrong, why are you smiling lol.
Since Zoom met Mohanji during Saturday’s satsang, my kids and I are super amazed and we feel his love tremendously. I live far far away from my immediate family and I am a proud single mother of two girls 10 & 12, my family history is of the Mohan family formerly of India through grand grand and great great grandfathers I strongly feel I am told by my father that this is the Mohan he was looking for a few yrs before he could pass on. My father knew that there was someone of great importance with this name who he needed to meet. And through Mohanj’s grace and love for us we have met. He is now the father in my home, the friend, the companion, the everything. He has filled up my children’s heart with love and contentment where previously it was sadness and despair.
Today we feel complete, nothing can come close to this that we are and feel today.
I did not know much about spirituality in my younger days and I would really love and hope that there could be more of these interactions with children as well. It will be such a great personal achievement if kids from a young age get involved with aspects that really matter in life.
Please kindly pass this message to Mohanji as well. I am most certain I was destined to meet him through my late father who had already known him.
Thank you Baba, for everything and most importantly for me, just being a part of my life.
This was my first live satsang with Mohanji and really was amazing. Besides Mohanji’s valuable answers, for me personally the greatest value had the last part when I had a chance to speak with Mohanji. After just one sentence from him I felt powerful, intensive and realising feeling in my heart so I started crying like a child. This feeling can’t be described by words. From this moment I really feel Mohanji in my heart. Love Mohanji.
I am so happy that you have asked for the feedback, I was going to write to you myself.
First of all, thank you for a great and clean, stress-free organisation of this satsang.
It was a wonderful experience. The time spent with Mohanji that day was very fulfilling, I was touched by and have noted down many things he said. However, one insight I am especially grateful for.
I always felt the need to be told what exactly my purpose in life is, as if I had no idea what to be doing unless someone tells me very clearly, gives me some kind of a concrete position, a task. For years I felt like what I was doing, the way I was adding value to my surroundings was great but that I could do much more if only I know what exactly. What complete nonsense it was to trust myself and my intuition so little!
Talking about how to develop will power, Mohanji uttered magical words saying “Adding value to the world is our purpose”.
I understood what he meant and have no words to explain how inspiring this sentence was for me. It brought all the clarity I was looking for. I am thankful beyond any word.
I have had the blessing of attending a Satsang with Mohanji before and I have always felt like I have heard something specific that has really helped me. This was true again for this recent Satsang, where so much of it felt applicable to me. I love Mohanji’s communication style, it is clear, to the point and delivered in a direct manner. Perfect. I left with such a feeling of calm and wellbeing, like everything was alright with me and the world.
What I found especially heart warming was watching all the new followers seeing Mohanji for the first time. I have remembered this a few times since the Satsang and now, just writing this, I am once again moved to tears as I remember their excitement and emotion at being able to speak with him. It was absolutely amazing and precious.
Thank you for this beautiful experience.
From this talk and all Mohanjis talks, I feel lighter, brighter. I am happy to see and hear Him. I am more aware of this temporary reality, fleeting objects, emotions, feelings, thoughts, situations…. But I am more able to witness. I understand there is more, not just this life, not only these temporary aspects and senses we use to experience Life. Nothing belongs to me anyway.
Life is happening every moment. Inevitably.
Mohanji’s talks and podcasts in general give me understanding, awareness, clarity, more peace, acceptance, gratitude, and flow in life. Whatever level of understanding, clarity, awareness, peace, acceptance, flow and gratitude I gain or I have – it’s all due to Him! I owe all to HIM! He reminds me of our temporality, and to use this time to be effective at every given moment.
Thank You Mohanji for Your Sacred Existence!
Always at Your feet.
This Satsang was one of the most powerful Satsangs that I have participated in. I still feel the effect of Mohanji’s presence in me. Thank you for organising the event.
Hello, my name is Marijana and I live in Croatia. In gratitude to Mohanji I will tell you about how I have met the teacher Guru Parabrahma Mohanji.
I met Mohanji in Bosnia on a program organized by the Mohanji organization in 2017.
Before that meeting, I met a Mohanji student, Branko, who was leading a conscious walking in my town Rijeka. My friend told me about Mohanji and his experiences. I listened to him and took it lightly. I went for conscious walking on Sunday mornings still having my gaze on how it benefits me. The morning walk for me represented a good change in the morning run and relaxation in nature. I was still unaware that I had joined Mohanji’s Consciousness walking!! It was not clear to me then. Soon there was a lecture by archaeologist Samir Osmanagić in my city about the Bosnian pyramids in the town of Visoko. I went to a lecture and was delighted, and got interested in the trip to the Bosnian pyramids. When I opened the page on the internet looking for the program about a trip organized by a group that organized a lecture by archaeologist Samir Osmanagić, Mohanji’s poster popped up from the Mohanji organization with Mohanji’s Face. My eyes widened and I told my husband we had to go. After a few days we agreed and paid for the trip to Bosnia Pyramid. My first meeting with Mohanji was so relaxing and joyful, that excitement and expectations were gone. I met a simple and cheerful Guru, who has exceptional wisdom and knowledge The messages of Mohanji that I heard at the satsang in Bosnia changed my outlook on life. So even today when I think and lead a debate with myself about some topics: about humanity, about the universe, about self love, about relationships, family, about anything, Mohanji posts a message and gives me an answer and direction! At first I thought it was an accident. After a while, this happens again. And then you open your eyes wide because he gives a message that is clear and easy to understand at that moment.
When I became interested in knowledge, to learn more about spirituality, at one point I joined a new group that was reading an interesting book Book of knowledge. Mohanji posted the message and his face in the triangle emblem.
A very big coincidence, in the book I started reading the emblem is the triangle. Sacred geometry. I took this as a sign it is good to read that book for knowledge.
In this new group, there were rules of the knowledge book that said that a student could be attached to one Teacher’s Aura with an explanation of the influence of cosmic energy on the student’s consciousness and body. Those rules gave me a clear picture that I had to choose only one teacher.
Mohanji’s messages always motivated me and showed me the way. I am grateful that there is such a teacher.
I once wrote that Mohanji provides me with support for stability. It triggers the inner dormant energy for life. Unselfishly connected in peace and blessing.
His messages are inspiring.
Be what you are now with everything that has been given to you from life.
You can only start walking from where you are standing.
No matter if your candlelight is weak, they are still in flame.
Never in my wildest dreams, would I have ever thought it possible to come in contact with a Master. To have an experience similar to the disciples of Jesus or the people of Shirdi during the lifetime of Shirdi Sai Baba.
This has been so clearly my experience and a kind of realization at this moment in time corresponding to the recent Satsang with Mohanji celebrating the 50th milestone podcast of Mohanji Speaks.
The eternal gratitude I have for each and every podcast that Mohanji delivered like beautiful gems on the shore is a whole other article with much to express. I will stay with my experience of the Satsang and only say these last few months have been so transformative from the inside of my very being on every level that the signs of transformation are now becoming visible on the outside.
The noticing of this transforming me, came as my experience of this beautiful Satsang. I will try and convey what that experience was, although sometimes words have become inept in describing the feeling of Beauty or Divinity.
It was like stepping into the dawning of the golden age of Aquarius like that of the musical Hair. Mohanji casually poised on a chair draped in green and orange cloths.. Truly a casual celebration similar in feeling to what I imagine Jesus rapping with his disciples.
But there was no imagination needed here, the highly permeated ambiance of the Satsang was already in progress when I joined in 13 minutes in. (At 4am, PST in the USA, I did not check my emails and took me a moment to catch up with the Important notice of a new zoom code. The only reason for mentioning this is despite things not going smooth, I was having already this beautiful Divine experience of self with nothing in mind but patience and naturalness in finding the solution then logging in) and upon slipping in to the Satsang, I could only feel this deep sense of my own Naturalness and Connectedness. SO NATURAL. It was like I was there from the beginning and me joining in needed no adjustment on anyone’s part, I was feeling so accepting of myself, as I was already One with the entire Satsang that was in session. This experience was immediately so deep and saturated within me, I felt more connected to Mohanji and everyone present than ever. The questions and answers were Flowing Like A River, calm yet Rapid, and I was totally filled with complete fulfillment in these moments, more than 2 hours. I noticed after joining in, Mohanji almost as if back tracking addressed the Parallel Realities topic. This had been in my mind as my only question days prior to the Satsang that I had not even submitted and yet was completely answered!
This feeling continued throughout the entire Satsang and even though Mohanji was so casually addressing what felt like advanced topics, He was moving at a pace my mind felt like it was sprinting!
Who else other than such a Loving Living Master can provide this type of priceless experience? I have honestly felt as if I was living and interacting in a Satcharitra like space through these interactive podcasts and now this Amazing Satsang as a form of a living breathing virtual Leela! Truly Grace Personified. And Immense Gratitude.
An interesting thought about why this Satsang felt so different and special to me occurred and I don’t know if it’s truly relevant?
I had the distinct feeling later that what I was feeling,
This presence that was so Palpable and Real amongst this Satsang could be not only the energy of the Master and Guru Tattwa present but also because of the culmination of everyone present had the common experience of listening to these podcasts previously leading up to this event. This deeply saturated Naturalness, Acceptance, and Connectedness was like a new Reality experience of “One World. One Family” brilliantly devised and delivered by Mohanji! There was no agenda amongst the attendees other than the sincere Gratitude and Honoring and further Exploring of their understanding of the material which was being used as a jumping off point. And what followed was this undeniable Richness that allotted for what felt like many doors being opened! For the first time the statement that we are Unlimited and it is only the mind that limits us landed, and so did the realm of that Possibility in that moment. (This has also happened to me in many moments while listening to the podcasts. Then experiencing these moments of realization and application even if for only a few seconds in life, there is the awakening happening and one gets one step closer to that possibility.)
So I have come away with the feeling that there is unbelievable great value in these podcasts affording consistency and exposure to the Master. These wonderful small doses, which are so precious and not so small, have been experienced in the effects that really sneak up on you! Before you know it, you have been fully re-educated with eternal tools you can use to transform yourself and the world around you. WOW.
Mohanji Please accept, from the depth of soul, my Eternal Gratitude. Thank you for being there for me and all of us during this time! You have given me Strength and made my life a Beautiful Experience completely immune to world events,
You have been the mother turtle on the opposite shore sending such loving and compassionate glances delivering these beautiful messages that have gently and safely washed to the other shore. I am so deeply Honored in every possible way, to have had this time and these experiences with you and the Consciousness that is Mohanji.
Master, Thank You, I so believe in you!
Thanks for this opportunity to write the feedback. Firstly, Eternally grateful to Mohanji for the podcasts and the satsang that followed. As I mentioned in my podcast audio, His bitesize vitamins for the soul are hugely empowering and inspiring. The satsang happening for me was a leela by itself, as I had sent my reflections on audio to the wrong email address. But thanks to Mohanji and His Podcast team, I managed to get the link just in time for the satsang.
Secondly, Mohanji’s satsang was as usual power packed; some of the salient points which impacted me were His one liners, which are listed out. I plan to print it out and place it on my desk.
Awake from the massive illusion you have been entertaining.
Accept whatever comes as is.
3. Personal experience has more relevance than books or words of another.
Mind restricts one’s potential (lack of capacity) while soul empowers (enormous capacity)
Accept oneself totally; when acceptance happens, deep peace happens. When there is resistance, there is mental agitation.
A prejudiced mind sees division.
Willpower comes with clarity of purpose; adding value to the world is our purpose; add value to the world with skills, values and determination.
Where you park your mind, that you become.
Invest in Awareness.
There are many such powerful pointers which were given; the above resonated with me as I have been working on self acceptance and always wondered; what is it to accept oneself; but Mohanji pointed out that the outcome of acceptance is deep peace; this gave me clarity on this issue. The simple answer He gave on how to deal with current times, be flexible, had a profound effect. As I have learnt over the past years of association with Him, Being Mohanji is a state; a state of stillness, equanimity and love; the Stithpragya state as described in the Gita. Whatever the scriptures say, I see it that in HIm; He is indeed the Infinite Truth embodied and walking with us!!
Lastly, my Guru Dakshina to Him would be to live His teachings,that’s my deepest wish and desire and hope with His grace it happens.
Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the Satsang with Mohanji. It was a real blessing to receive his love at least through Zoom. During the Satsang I had a few questions in my head that I didn’t ask, but I got the answers anyway. I got answers to some questions after the Satsang, through messages I would ‘accidentally’ read on Facebook or hear on television. That’s how I know that Mohanji is really always with me. He hears me and delivers me everything I need. Thank you Father!
Grateful to the Tradition, Mohanji and the social media (podcast) team for their efforts to arrange Satsang with Mohanji.
Listening to the podcast and sharing our thoughts was such a small act compared to the finale!
Mohanji’s session was so spontaneous and from the heart, as always.
Thought I would share with you some key takeaways that stayed with me from the session
-Transcend all man made barriers and blocks and experience oneness.
-Diversity has its beauty and has to be appreciated.
-Humanity is our religion. Adding value to the world should be the purpose.
-Invest in your strength! Ignore your weakness!
-Don’t look for success or failure.
-One spark would be enough to ignite, if we are ready .
-If failures come, accept and move forward.
-Doubt is the key that the devil uses to enter the mind of a person and wreak havoc.
-We have to become like dry wood… Just wait for the opportune moment so that the flame will be ignited in us by the Master.
-One’s ability to do something positive for the world would be one’s independence. Not needing anything and healing others and healing the world would be independence. Independence is an inside story… Let the inside story unfold and lead us to light!
Let me start by congratulating and thanking you for a life transforming satsang with Mohanji. It was a wonderful effort on your part to connect all disciples with the master. At the same time you encouraged everyone to listen to the podcasts. Superb effort. Great going. Hope to have many more such events in the future. Congratulations once again.
Good afternoon, my name is Ines, I live in Aruba but I am Peruvian. This time I want to express my gratitude and love to Mohanji. Never participated in a Satsang before in my life and I feel blessed. I experienced strong emotion in my heart, in my soul. Thanks to Mirela, because my friend Martha Bazan enrolled me in the Mohanji Peru Club and we were in quarantine. Well, it has been the best gift that I have been able to experience daily feelings of very strong emotions with Maitri, and the daily Meditations, my Yoga that I love so much. I just want to say I love him from the heart and I listen to his podcast every day through EBC. Thank you Thank you Thank you. This is my testimony today and forever.
Satsang on a podcast held on 15/8/2020 was really interesting and mind blowing. Instead of writing or asking questions, I was watching silently. Many were telling how tangible Mohanji is now. One person mentioned that those who haven’t met Mohanji yet could hear his heartbeat by just touching his photo and the one who don’t have eyes could see him through third eye, others mentioning how they are able to know his presence always. Mohanji was answering many questions humorously too..
Mohanji gave insight on connecting to a living master without doubts, comparison and expectations, which he said are the traps in spiritual progress. When doubts come, he asked to burn the doubt with faith. He again asked to put our 100% effort in all actions and forget about the result, that is surrendering to God or Guru. He also asked everyone to accept weaknesses and strengthen their strengths. Let the weakness be there aside, and strengths should be grown like nurturing a plant. Thanks a lot Mohanji and the team for this beautiful satsang.
I relish every opportunity to listen to Mohanji and soak in his wisdom.
This private satsang however, offered a rare gift – I was able to speak to Mohanji directly as he answered the question I had posed. This filled me with gladness head to toe 🙂
The satsang felt intimate due to the limited number on the call and thus rather special for us all I am sure.
Thank you Baba, thank you to all for making this experience possible.
I would like to share my experience of the satsang last week.
It was a truly memorable experience. Each time I see Mohanji live, I feel the immediate personal connection, it feels as though he is looking at each one of us and we are having our own private satsang! It is truly magical and I find myself overwhelmed with love and a deep seated warmth towards our beloved guru.
Mohanji patiently listened to each one of us, and I was able to say hello and thank him personally for the healing and guidance I felt when my father was recently unwell. As I spoke, I knew he was aware of all my thoughts and I didn’t need to explain anything!!!
Thank you Mohanji for connecting with me so beautifully. You are our supreme guide and I love your Zoom satsangs. I look forward to more opportunities.
What is your experience? You can listen and follow Mohanji Speaks podcast here
“This is the day for respecting the masters. This is the day that we remember to respect them because most of the days we take them for granted; we take their teachings for granted. We take Gurus for granted. We take ourselves for granted. Hence, this is the beautiful day to remember who we are, who they are; and eventually, how we are together.
There is no Guru outside of you apart from the Guru inside of you. If you are eligible for a Master, the Master has to happen; you will create that Master. The Master manifests by itself because you deserved a Master. If you’re ready for an information, that information must reach you. This is the law of nature.”
“My life was a room with no walls ( missing existence of soul ) I met you in 2012, gradually you showed me the path to build the walls my soul, Mohanji you are so simple sweet and bighearted your heart is like a sky, I always feel a tremendous shift in me when I meet you , aspire for your presence, you are always there through some message so here is my small and magical experience…
The night I was sharing rainbow story with all our children during compassion during corona days. I asked father looking at the lit lamp in front of Him – I wish you could be here and I told the rainbow story and it so happened that I checked my Facebook , to my surprise there was a post shared by Mohanji on spectrum of rainbow colors In the form of pyramid. Mohanji‘s message through this was so strong that he is always connected to me. I just want to walk your principles. I am so blessed to have given me opportunity to chant your name, Mohanji Mohanji Mohanji my Krishna Bhagwan.” Payal Kaul from India
From Subhashree Thottungal
My deepest reverence and gratitude to my eternal Guru Mohanji.
On this auspicious day, I offer this expression of love through the singing the eternal Mantra by Adi Shanakaracharya – *Guru Paduka Stotram*.
Thank you dear *Natesh Ramsell* for making this possible.
I LOVE YOU
I AM WITH YOU
Changed the whole perspective of my life
Go move on, he said, ” I am with you.”
And I moved never ever as before
He guided, all through
Journey with kids transformed me
No Gospels, no preaching
Simple words, encouraging
Motivated us to innovate
Add dreams to little lives
Give them wings to fly
And when you gave me wings to fly
I just don’t know
Oh! Mohan ji. My Guru
You then let the seed of reality
Residing within me to flourish.
I surrender my being
To merge with Thee. https://mohanjipoetry.wordpress.com/2020/07/05/oh-mohanji-my-guru/

Jai Jai Mohanji
I wish you a very happy and fulfilling Guru Purnima. We have spoken about various aspects of existence over the year, so I don’t want to repeat quite a lot of the same stuff, but I would like to remind you about one important aspect as you walk the path of spirituality.
God as we perceive is pure consciousness – formless, pure energy, pure brightness. Your soul is pure brightness. It is the source of all elements, elements which have created the body i.e. earth, water, fire, air, space. All these elements have their source in the Soul or God which is the same. Soul is pure brightness, God is pure brightness, Guru who has attained, confirmed, merged or integrated into God is pure brightness. So Guru – Soul – God are more or less the same.
What do you see on Guru outside of you?
A reminder. A direction. A road map. That’s it. However, the more you connect with yourself, the brightness within you, the brightness which is your original state, that’s exactly when you actually connect to a Guru. And when you see that brightness in every being outside of you, then you see Guru in every being. So Guru is in every being. Guru is in everything.
Look at the source of all things. Even if it is anger, hatred, jealousy kind of thing or even if it is a feeling, a wind blowing, breeze, sounds… Look at the source of all things around you, you will understand that there is energy behind it. Without that energy, there is no movement, there is no aspect, there is no life.
This life is Guru. Energy behind all life is Guru. That’s the principle I would like you to remember today on Guru Purnima.”

The days leading to the 13th day after her passing was spent listening to the normal Gayatri mantra which played continuously. After we did Mohanji’s Aarti, we were astounded as the Gayatri mantra started to play, and it wasn’t even next on the playlist.

Mohanji Centre Randburg – Reported by Ami Hughes
Mohanji Centre – Randburg (MC-R) also observed Guru Poornima.
Due to this auspicious occasion falling on a work day for most of us, our programme was set for 6 pm.
What a magnificent blessing it was to participate in the sacred event, saturated in our Beloved Mohanji’s Grace and Love.
Six people attended, including hosts Mr and Mrs Oliver and Julie Reddy, Surika, Priscilla and Megan.
As we settled in and became quieter, we could feel the unmistakable Presence of Love hugging us, so silk smooth soft.
Everyone there was beautifully present.
We opened with invocation, and flowed into the 108 chants of Mohanji Gayathri.
It was a Heart and Soul slow rhythmic chant which steadily built up a vortex of swirling sacred Energy. It blanketed the whole shrine. The whole atmosphere began to pulse with the heightening frequencies of the chanting. We were in the Powerful Arms of our Guru and the mighty Datta Tradition He represents.
Our Pada Puja followed – led by Mohanji Acharya Ami.
All of us made offerings of rice grains – soaked in Gratitude, and our Thanks and Love – to the Holy Lotus Feet of our Beloved Guru – Mohanji.
Ami also chanted the Mohanji Saranam Ashtakam and read the English meaning to add impetus, and ended our Pada Puja with the chanting of the Mohanji Kavacham.
Now we were ready for the Freedom Meditation.
What a sweet experience it was – a taste of Celestial Nectar – in the heart-melting voice of our Mohanji.
It was a deeply moving experience, touching each one to the core.
We were literally flying as we did Aarthi in conclusion of our Guru Poornima celebration.
All Praise and Thanks to You Mohanji – our Beloved SadhGuru.
We know Your physical form, but can only guess at Your operating levels beyond form – and still we would fall far, far short in our imaginings of just Who and What You are.
Happy Guru Poornima Mohanji – from MC-R

Reported by Salona and Sholane Surjoo
In celebration of Guru Purnima and gratitude to Guru Brahmarishi Mohanji, Megatude Education Centre in Ladysmith hosted a kids art session and Freedom meditation. 16 little ones joined in for a combination of art and meditation for kids has been in my heart and thoughts for a little while now so what a better day to start than on Guru Purnima. The kids were first asked to draw a picture from their imagination followed by Freedom meditation and then again afterwards drew another picture. There were distinct differences in the art work before and after meditation. The use of more colour, bigger brighter drawings and more creative pictures were made after the meditation. The kids had more confidence and peer interaction afterwards. Most of these kids experienced meditation for the first time, yet they were able to sit the entire ten minutes of the Freedom meditation.
With the theme, “warmth this winter” the Ladysmith Centre bought warm blankets for the children and adults at a children’s home.
21 warmth blankets and vegan hot dogs, sweets and cupcakes where handed out to these kiddies and mothers on the afternoon of Guru Purnima, before starting the evening aarti and celebrations to Guru.
Meditation, Chanting, and Pure Bliss

On Sunday 14 July 2019, a group of us from Mohanji family, Satya Sai Baba , Shirdi Baba and Agasthiar followers gathered in Kuala Lumpur to celebrate Guru Purnima, a day to pay homage to our gurus who have given us so much and continue to give and love us unconditionally, guiding and protecting us in our soul journey.
The day started with Aarti performed by the owner of the house. Each took turns to perform abishegam on the padukas of Mohanji and Shirdi Babas murthy. It was a beautiful sight to behold as each person lovingly poured milk (vegan) and offered flowers.
The chanting of AUM charged up the whole space . The chanting of Rudram by our young Satya Sai Baba devotee really touched me to the core. Bhajans were rendered individually by the youngest of 10 years old to the oldest amongst us of 74 years old. Such angelic and lovely voicest filling the air with so much devotion and love.During Aarti, I felt tears flowing remembering how Mohanji had remained in my life holding my hands through thick and thin and with so much unconditional love despite the little I give in return.
Mohanji’s presence was felt very strongly and two persons had also felt the presence of Satya Sai Baba as the abishegam on Shirdi Baba’s murthy was performed with the gayari mantra chanted by Satya Sai Baba in the background.
The owner of the house was so happy this day as he had long harboured the desire of us holding a celebration at his new house. It so happened that our centre was being used for some work project and we had to find another location for the celebration. Mohanji hears us all the time and grants us our deepest desires.
In Novi Sad, on the day of light when we express gratitude and respect to spiritual teachers, Guru principle in us and to the Tradition, Guru Purnima was celebrated in Datta Tapovan centre.
We listened to Mohanji’s Guru Purnima message and afterwards we dived into “Power of Purity” meditation. We changed Mohanji Gayatri mantru 108 times and during the sacred song of gratitude (aratija) we opened our heart and expressed our deep gratitude towards Mohanji as well as all masters of Datta tradition, for their guidance on the path towards liberation, for their sontinuous presence, protection and immeasurable love they give us.
While reading the key messages from “SHri Sai Satcharithra” about Shirdi Sai Baba, through tears we were reminded what a blessing it is to meet Guru in this life, as well as to be in Mohanji’s physical presence, Master in his physical body.
In Belgrade about 20 of us gathered. The evening was opened by Nikolina Dragojevic, Mohanji Acharya, who has spent this year in India.
As grateful for the blessing that Mohanji is our Guru, as for all other masters, we started “Bliss of Silence meditation”. After the meditation, we received Mohanji energy transfer and went on to chant Mohanji Gayatri mantra 108 times. During the chanting, we breathed as One.
Throughout the evening, Mohanji’s presence could be felt. It was the most tangible during the energy transfer when tears of bliss, deep gratitude and laughter occurred.
We left after Aarati, bathed in love and energised.

16th July 2019. Guru Poornima. A much awaited auspicious day for all disciples to express their gratitude to their Guru.
This was a day filled with devotion and love for Mohanji and spent in utmost joy in the consciousness of Mohanji by Mohanji UK family. Many devotees participated all day, half day or even for sometime during the day at the venue in Pinner where the special event was being celebrated.
The day begun with M UK family gathering up from 5:30 am onwards, setting up the altar and commencing the auspicious ritual with Aarati at 6 am.
Then everyone presented, offered their gratitude to Mohanji through Paaduka puja amidst the chant of Guru Paaduka Shloka sung by devotees, followed by Mohanji Ashtottari (108) name chanting.
All present devotees were Kriya initiates! Doing Kriya together after such powerful chanting and Paaduka puja was a powerhouse experience! With UK Summer morning Sunshine brightening up the room, it felt like “Sata Sahasra Surya” (100 thousand Sun) Mohanji’s power gracing all.
After scrumptious homemade vegan South Indian breakfast, the programme continued with Bhajan singing.
One after another after another, all devotees were completely merged into the ocean of devotion through the bhajan singing, which soon turned into the act of merging into Guru’s raasa leela, everyone getting up on their feet, deep into Conscious Dancing. Needless to say that everyone felt Mohanji sitting in the chair laughing with them, cheering them and being with everyone in every moment. Mohanji’s fragrance had completely mesmerised everyone.
Immediately after the noon Arati, everyone’s joy knew know limit to watch the Live telecast of Mohanji’s satsang straight from Bangalore. During this time more people kept joining us.
After vegan lunch, the satsang amongst the devotees continued. Experience sharing was so powerful that all had tears, laughters, all shades of emotions showing their gratitude and love for Mohanji who has brought so much joy in everyone’s life.
It was heartening to see a particular family turning up with their specially-abled child currently going through even challenging serious condition. Mohanji’s grace on this family have been so immense. They have physically never met, but through Consciousness and through Mai Tri the family has come in the shield of protection of Mohanji. When the family walked in and the child was put on the sofa, which was right in front of Mohanji’s chair, no one sitting in between. The powerful grace and healing power from Mohanji was flowing to the child, a silent but powerful communion happening between them.
As we progressed towards afternoon, going for the evening Aarati, more people kept coming in to be part of this celebration. More singing, more dancing, just joy all around!
Mohanji’s presence without His physical presence was so strong, everyone felt as if Mohanji is physically sitting with us. More than 13 hours passed like 13 seconds! It was a day of heightened spirit in the consciousness of Mohanji.
Everyone’s face, their body language showed the eternal joy in unconditional love for Mohanji.
It’s actually beyond comprehension to express how Mohanji showered His love to all His devotees in the whole time!
The pictures may be able to express a tiny bit.
The Guru Poornima celebration at the Mohanji USA center in Virginia started early morning with Guru Pooja – offering of flowers at padukas to the chanting of Mohanji Ashtotri (108 names), followed by aarati at 6.00 am. We then offered pooja to Shirdi Sai Moorti and padukas with chanting of Sai Potrigal, a beautiful set of 108 names of Sai Baba in Tamil. The morning worship ended just in time for our group to join the Satsang with Mohanji which was relayed live from Bangalore.
It was indeed a wonderful blessing that Mohanji appeared along with Devi Amma to bless all of us far and wide around the globe. The Divya Jyoti or effulgence from the Guru has no boundaries of time and space and permeates all over emanating bliss and joy and grace!
At our altar in Virginia, a pale orb of hazy light appeared on one of Mohanji’s photos. With a variety of images showing up on the photo, we could only think that it was a symbol of Shiva-Shakti manifestation, with the right side near the forehead reflecting vibhuti (holy ash) and the left side reflecting yellowish hue representing turmeric used in the worship of the supreme mother Goddess. The picture is shared below (The first one was taken in the morning after aarti when the images appeared, and the second one taken later in the evening which appears clear of any hue. We had not wiped the surface of the frame!)
After the Satsang, all those who had gathered in the celebration earlier, joined together to cook meals to take to a nearby homeless shelter. We prepared vegetable rice and mixed lentil soup and carried with us some water bottles and fruits. As I walked out of the house carrying the tray of rice pulao, it slipped and just fell from my hands. It was a moment where I was stunned at what just happened, however; it was indeed a blessing because the tray hit the floor in such a way that some grains fell out just enough for the birds to feed upon, and rest of the tray was intact. It was truly an amazing moment.
As it was getting late for us, I just left the dropped food on the pavement and drove to the shelter, thinking I can move it to the grass area when I get back because the pavement in the area is always clean.
The Lamb Center in Fairfax, Virginia, is a daytime drop-in for the poor and the homeless in the area. We had expected to just drop off the food which is normally served by the organization’s volunteers. However, when we arrived, the staff from the center welcomed us and showed us around the center about the various activities that they offer to the needy in the local community. This opened an opportunity for us to talk about Mohanji Foundation and all our activities that can benefit the community as well. Mohanji was present throughout the program because we ended up with a detailed discussion and the lovely lady who spent quite a bit of time with us, promised to organize a meeting with other members of their board to find ways for us to collaborate with them. Another sign of Mohanji’s presence without presence.
After we left the shelter, my mind went back to the pavement and the rice that had fallen earlier. I was thinking, I must clean up the pavement and remove the vegetable rice fallen on the pavement to the front yard grassy area. Upon reaching back home, lo and behold, there was not a grain of rice or vegetable on the ground. The birds and squirrels had wiped them clean. With deep gratitude to the acceptance of the annadhan (food offering), we all came home and sat together and had a quick lunch to allow at least 2 hours before the start of the eclipse, even though it was not visible here.
After lunch, we once again sat together and listened to Mohanji’s Guru Poornima message and soaked in the energy of Devi Amma’s beautiful chants which segued smoothly into our chanting session at the start of the eclipse. We started with the Mahamrityunjaya mantra for an hour followed by Sai Nama and Mohanji Gayatri. The impalpable energy that emanated from this group chanting was extraordinary.
As the program progressed, more people joined. We also connected the event on zoom for people out of state to tune in. The chanting was followed by bhajans. In addition to our usual Sanskrit bhajans, Lauren rendered a soul-stirring native American prayer which touched all our hearts.
We concluded the day with group Consciousness Kriya and followed it with the Power of Purity Meditation. Mohanji’s energy transfer during POP meditation was extremely intense. Everyone who received it was overwhelmed with the intensity of the grace.
My mother who is visiting from Chennai prepared all the prasadam – offering to the Guru – during the day for each of the offerings before aarathi at 6 am, 12 pm and 6 pm.
(The basis of meditation is the form of the Guru, real worship is of the feet of the Guru, the basis of mantra is the word of the Guru and the bestowal of liberation is only through the Grace of the Guru) – Guru Stotram, Skanda Puran.
With MohanJi’s Grace, MohanJi Canada Family celebrated Guru Purnima on 16th & 21st July at MohanJi DattaTapovan.
On 16th, we did MohanJi’s Paduka Puja with 108 Names, Hawan (Homa) with Shirdi Babaji’s 108 Names and 108 MohanJi Gayatri. It was Full of Energy that MohanJi and Devi MohanJi’s presence was experienced ! Thank You Father Thank You DeviJi.
Today’s Celebration was Amazing, Powerful And with Miracles! We started with MohanJi’s Paduka Pujan with Guru Paduka Strotram, Followed by Homa with MohanJi’s Ashtothari-MohanJi’s 108 Names. The Homa was Very Powerful, we all experienced Divine Presence of Mohanji.
Then we also enjoyed Conscious Walking in the Ashram. Two people, including a 75 years old man, had CW for the first time. Both were speechless after the Walk!
Program ended with MohanJi’s Aarti and Baba Sai’s noon Aarti. During the Sai Aarti, Mahesh was sitting besides Father’s Chair And Praying Father to accept all we did. Suddenly a bunch of 5 Bananas felt down from table on which we have kept Father’s Life size Picture! Not only that, at the same time, Father’s food plate also turned at least 30 degrees! This happened during Sai’s Noon Aarti! We all witnessed Divine Presence of our Beloved Guru God Datta Prabhu MohanJi.

3. Maheshwari Mohanji
A few years ago, before meeting my beloved Guru Mohanji, I did not understand the true meaning of Guru Purnima. And although one can never fully understand Guru or the auspiciousness of such a day, i am truly grateful to Mohanji for walking into our lives and switching on the light.
Before meeting Mohanji, spiritual Masters were only known to me in scriptures. I could not imagine what it would be like to meet a living master, one who walks with you, loves you unconditionally, has no ego, pride, jealousy or any negative quality. One who lives for the world, selflessly, and asks nothing from anyone.
To me, the only One who has these qualities is my beloved Shiva. But to see Him, walk with Him in a human form was something out of this world.
Before meeting Mohanji, i have never met any human being who was so selfless, God-like, divine and especially anyone who really didn’t expect or ask anything from me.
So, the auspiciousness of Guru Purnima was not something I celebrated. I could not understand how any human being could make such a positive, selfless impact on another and that too, without asking anything in return, no money, “guru fees”, nothing. As I mentioned before, only Lord Shiva had these qualities. He is my ultimate Master, my God and my Guru. So on days like this when people revered their Gurus, i would just give thanks to Shiva.
I can not describe nor explain the gratitude in my heart to even know such a being as Mohanji. And on this day and always, i give utter most thanks and gratitude to Guru for His presence in my life, for so much positive change, for emptying me of so much of negative stored emotions, for so much that i am not even aware of. And that too, He showed me that Yes, a real Guru can walk into your life, as a normal human being and help you(not only in scriptures).
Jai Jai Jai Brahmarishi Mohanji
Jai Gurudev Datta
Happy Guru Purnima
After Mohanji’s birthday celebration worldwide, He wrote a letter of gratitude. However much we try to express our gratitude to Him by living His teaching, He always gives more. Read another pearl of wisdom from the timeless ocean of love:
“My dear embodiments of purest love,
I am deeply grateful. While I write this, I am filled with gratefulness to each and every one of you and your families for taking me to your heart and doing good for the world on my birthday and beyond. My heart is full because, at least on this day, so many people of various species slept peacefully, with food in their stomach, a clean cloth around them or slept peacefully feeling and understanding that someone out there cares for them. Your kind gesture fills me up. The most precious wealth that I have earned in this life is your love. My favourite abode is your hearts. I love to live there. I love it there. The “life” in your hearts is my inspiration, love in your heart for me is my food and energy. I love you and care for you more than you perhaps are aware. I work all the time for your welfare and well-being. I do not live for myself. I do not need anything more than the human basics. You are truly my family, my true family, who stood by me through sunshine and rains, thunders, lightnings, tsunamis, earthquakes, summers, winters and springs of life. How can I leave your hand ever, since you have never left mine? I am grateful.
Food, Clothes, and Shelter are the basic human needs. Health care, education etc. follows. It is the responsibility of every citizen of this world to share food, clothes and shelter with those who do not have them. Compassion is the higher consciousness that we have inherited from the great selfless masters who guided us selflessly. What you share, you have, as grace. Whatever you earn from earth, we do not have forever. Give more than we can take from earth. Share whatever you have been empowered with. Our net worth on earth is what we are able to share with the world, not what we earn temporarily from here and leave behind when we leave. Our signature on earth is the ability to share unconditionally. This is the real humanness.
My birthday is not so important. If February 23rd reminds you of your highest consciousness, where the expression of it is compassion, kindness, selflessness, unconditional love, Ahimsa (non-violence), purity in thoughts, words, actions, sharing whatever you have in abundance and caring for all living beings equally, without discrimination, I am grateful. Do celebrate it. I am not so special and nor is my birthday. I am just like you, a living, talking, eating, sleeping, working human being. I have no greatness more than you have. Yet, if you remember me as “consciousness”, and if my presence is a reminder to you of what we truly are, (that you and me are one), do celebrate. And celebration should be strictly by adding value to the society around you, in whichever way you can. Look at all the people of all the species, through the eyes of compassion, kindness and love. Serve them. Love them. This should be ideally a consciousness day, not a birthday.
We have been talking about the reason for us coming together here on earth, in this space, now. It is perhaps the urge of our souls for liberation, as well as experiencing a full and complete life, while we are in the body. This needs consistency in practice. Consistency is not easy, primarily because of the pressure of memories or impressions of past pleasures of life, including relationships, spaces, events and materials. It is not easy to detach from them and focus on completion. Karma demands natural fulfilment. Fulfilment is its completion and culmination. Then why is it getting repeated? The answer is memories, impressions of pleasures or pains that keep re-appearing to bring us back to the terrestrial path of wishes, desires and fulfilment. Combined with our inherent instinctual ownerships (me and mine), we get trapped again and again in the cycle of karma, which means re-births and re-deaths as bodies. If we have come here, come together at this time, for the sake of stabilising this awareness and moving beyond it together, as one family, you need to have consistency, conviction and compassion.
Ego is a silent killer. It kills the beauty of relationships without us being aware. And so are our ownerships. The medicine for ego as a disease is humility. If we consciously practice humility, we will certainly have a good life. Likewise, one of the projections of ego is social importance. This is a silent enemy too. It walks with us and makes us dissatisfied with what the society offers us. The medicine for this is practicing insignificance. Humility and practice of insignificance will give our lives immense stability and satisfaction. Along with this, if you also learn self-acceptance with all your weaknesses and strengths, you will add to your stability. And finally, of course equally important is your ability to expect less from the society and environment around you. The less the expectation, the higher the satisfaction. So, this year, let us consciously practice these as part of our higher consciousness. Humility. Insignificance. Self-Acceptance. Less Expectations. Once again, contentment per second is a clear sign of spiritual stability. So,
Ego X Humility
Self-Importance X Practicing Insignificance
Insecurities X Self-Acceptance
Disappointments X Less Expectations
Thus, let us practice positivity, totally ignoring negativities of life. If people love you, be grateful. If you get help, be grateful and reciprocate. Always give more than you receive, thus maintain your inner richness. And do not misuse or waste any materials or means that you get to handle. Be life always, consciously. Live your highest consciousness.
We are experiencing various kinds of dense energies which are causing much confusion in many minds around the world. We have to be aware of the dense energies. But, we must definitely handle those situations with maturity, calmness and perfect awareness that whatever comes to you is indeed food for experience, whether we like it or not. Acceptance. Acceptance without expectations. Look at it calmly without emotions and allow the storm to pass without ruffling your inner space. Not everything in life will be palatable always. Sometimes we have to live with bitter stuff too. This is part of life. Accept it. Allow it to come and go. Do not resist it and prolong it. When you are unaffected, everything vanishes spontaneously sooner or later. When we resist and fight it, it stays longer.
Once again, immense gratitude for your kind gestures, including positive actions, words, expressions, thoughts, calls, messages and everything else. I love you and am always with you. Wish you and your respective families, good health, wealth, abundance of love, happiness, peace and spiritual bliss.
Much Love Always
Devi Mohan, the ambassador of Mohanji Foundation
“How to wish a Happy Birthday to the one who has everything and needs nothing… – may your golden presence, the cup that overflows, reflect back at us the beauty of liberated existence, the beauty of service, the beauty of togetherness dedicated to the higher purpose of leading others into the Light brighter than the thousand suns. The greatest, most transforming moment of my life was the moment when I wished to serve the world together with a living Master…
Only Love is real and on this Golden Path we have been truly blessed to realize that.
Blessed to enjoy Your rare physical presence on this special day. May it be the birthday of endless joy and inner fullness to many.
Love eternal, Devi”

After the meditation we expressed gratitude to Mohanji through Aarti. The celebration ended with reading messages from Mohanji, a vegan cake and a tasty vegan food.
The celebration included chanting, Blossoms of Love meditation, reading an excerpt from “The Power of Purity” book and experience sharing by Stasa who just came from India and enjoying delicious raw vegan cakes.

Donation for Snezana
With a lot of joy and gratitude Mohanji’s birthday was celebrated in two cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina – Bijeljina and Sarajevo.
Mohanji team in Bijeljina visited an unemployed single mother of three children, brought them some food and supplies and spent some time with them. Food was as well delivered to a dog shelter which meant a lot to the lady who takes care of many dogs living there. After that, everybody gathered for meditation and satsang followed by treating with a yummi vegan cake.
In Sarajevo the gathering started with an intro on who Mohanji is and how important it is to have a living Master in our lives because some new souls joined us on that occasion. We read Mohandji’s birthday message out loud which left a deep trace in the hearts of all those who were present. After the cleansing meditation “Power of Purity” we also purified the space through Arati which was something new and unusual but also interesting for the newcomers. The energy transfer has never been so strong and intense. We continued our gathering with conversation, laughter, experience sharing and some great vegan food.
Everyone in the group contributed to the good atmosphere and pleasant socializing, which we are especially grateful for. Photos certainly can not convey the real energy that wore us on the wings of ease, gratitude and peace.
Mohanji’s birthday in Croatia was celebrated in three different cities. In Split we had a three day program. On Saturday we were delivering food to poor families, on Saturday we were feeding birds and fish and donated food for the cats and dogs and on Monday we cooked for the homeless people. On Mohanji’ s birthday our wish came true in a way that two more cities (Rijeka and Pula) started with ACT activities. In Rijeka we visited a family with seven children who lives in poor conditions and in Pula we were feeding birds and fish. The days spent in serving filled our hearts with immense joy and happiness!
Pula and Rijeka
UK family cherished Mohanji’s birthday event celebration with a powerful, devotion filled and joyful evening. Devotees not only from in and around London but also few from as far as Wales, gathered at the venue and were soaked in this event.
The event started with Mohanji Gayatri chanting then flowing to Paduka puja (offering gratitude at Mohanji’s feet symbolised by the Paduka) and then filling the atmosphere with incomprehensible devotion through Bhajan singing.
Mohanji showed His presence not just with the energy flow amongst the gathering but also through some impromptu additions such as Hanuman Chaalisa chanting and then everyone getting into the joy of dancing while Mohanji’s favourite “Govinda Madhavate” started playing. Everywhere it was only joy, everyone was in bliss.
The little children present in this event very excitedly cut the Vegan Cakes made with love by devotees and MYC volunteers.
The vegan Kerala Sadya (Kerala special food) and other items lovingly prepared by devotees, filled everyone’s heart too!
The event made all devotees feel Mohanji’s presence amongst them and all felt the joy exactly how they feel when Mohanji is around.
This event was not just an ordinary birthday celebration, “Presence without presence” was very much the highlight of the event, that even continued for the next day and some devotees who had travelled from far, stayed on and the effect of Mohanji’s presence continued with Mai Tri healing sessions and satsang. This was true Mohanji style with love, compassion and feeling of true family!
We offer our gratitude to Mohanji for filling our lives with so much love and joy.

Although he usually withdraws on some peaceful place away from publicity on this day, this year Mohanji was in Delhi, because he happened to attend Peace Pledge Project there.
Mohanji started his birthday with a visit to the Bangla Sahib, the famous gurudwara (literally Guru’s doors) – the temple for the Sikh faith – in Delhi. He attended a reading of the Guru Granth Sahib (the scripture of the Sikh faith) and then donated dry rations for the langar (consecrated offering) served all day to people of all faith. Love poured in from all corners of the world with wishes, blessings as well as sea activities being conducted around the world.
The event celebrating His birthday started with the Freedom meditation followed by a lovely bhajan session with a global cast – Jyoti Bahl India, Natesh Ramsell USA, Sanjay Acharya (Camdada), etc. Mohanji had a delightful satsang and took time to answer all questions. He also permitted a lot of the time to meet people in person. Truly a wonderful day of bliss and happiness. We wish our beautiful Master a wonderful birthday and a awesome year ahead!
Melting the ice in the heart of man. Both Mohanji and Uncle have that mission.

The morning started with a darshan of Baba, after kakda aarati. A Vegan cake was taken into the temple, after taking permission. The priests touched the smadhi with the cake. Ammucare Mumbai Team Mrs. Savitri and Mr. Hanes were there.
As they came to the Gurusthanam, the priest asked them “Are you not going to cut the cake?”. And lo and behold, soon the cake was cut and distributed. The icing being, all the people at Gurustanam started singing “Happy birthday Mohanji”. Father, pardon us for disturbing you. It was Shiridi and a spontaneous outburst of cheer.
In the afternoon Ammucare Mumbai Team Celebrated Father’s birthday at Jilla Parishad School, Sakori the day was celebrated with devotional fervour. As Mohanji’s disciples, the day’s event was distribution of school bags for 150 children of the school. It is to be noted that the children are all from very poor families. Mrs. Savitri from Ammucare Mumbai team with Mr Jnanaeshwar, from Shiridi, who volunteered for seva were there. The birthday cake was eggless and weighed 10 kgs, well, 150 children. The Panchayat President of Sakori took part in the event. Mr. Lokhande, MP of Shiridi was a sudden and surprising visitor. After all Father’s will or sankalpa. The photos attached tell you the story.
It was at the request of the School that Ammucare Mumbai team has taken the onus of supplying Educational tabs. Initially 20 tabs are proposed to be given. This would make the village school at Sakori get into niche rankings. Children would not carry, nay lug bags full of books. Reach home and homework would be in the tab. Father bless us.
A day cherished, with blessings from Baba, the holy land of Shiridi and Sakori.
We would like to thank the ACT UK team for sponsoring the bags to the kids.
Thanks, Father for willing all this. We are but clay and you the Master potter. Jai Mohanji.

On 24 February 2019 Mohanji paid a visit to the Delhi Aangan children. The kids were very enthusiastic to see Mohanji, showering him with a lot of love and affection which he happily reciprocated. The children were eager to show off their dance moves, and performed a very well choreograph dance for Mohanji. All the kids were fed and shared a birthday cake with Mohanji, they later on received new school supplies and were treated to a vegan ice cream.

Mohanji’s birthday celebration, with great fervour and fun, was carried out at Mohanji Ka Aangan in Pune. Kids of both the Aangans were brought together at one place, with 55 eager participants waiting to know what was in store for them. It was indeed an amazing funfilled time for both: the kids and the members of the M family, with cake cutting, mantra recitation and performances by the kids. The icing on the cake was the magic show. Most of the kids had never witnessed a magic show in their lives and neither had their parents. It was so heartwarming watching, not only the kids laughing and clapping, but also the parents of the children thoroughly enjoying themselves. The program culminated with lots of goodies overflowing from their plates: burgers, cakes, wafers, biscuits and of course ice-creams.
The show stopper was their vibrant attire which Father had desired and approved. Each Aangan student had donned his or her new pink coloured t-shirt and all of them looked so adorable. The program was attended by Dr. (Mrs.) Jaswant Minhas, a retired principal from Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, who had worked as Commissioner (Scouting) in Jammu region . A very active and a loving lady who also enthralled the kids with her engaging and endearing personality. Father’s grace and guidance was felt throughout. All gratitude to Him that we can be meaningful in every small way.

She belongs to the 1986 Karnataka Cadre of Indian Administrative Service and has served in various departments such as Tourism, Education, Women & Child Development Department, Rural Development, Agriculture, Horticulture, etc. We also had to our utmost pleasure and joy, Keshavan Namboodari, Chief Advisory for Ammucare, and also Mohanjis Father, and Smt, Sridevi Namboodari, Mohanji’s mother.
The event started with a welcome speech inviting the guests on stage and honouring them. Post which Smt. Vandita Sharma spoke a few words, of how happy she was to see such a project being undertaken by Ammucare. She wished Ammucare and the kids the best, and also extended her full support in any which way for the betterment of the kids and their future. She emphasised on overall and holistic development of the kids which she feels will go a long way in making this world a better place to love in. There were various cultural programs by the kids which included singing, dancing, showcasing their yoga skills too.
Finally we cut a cake on Mohanjis Birthday, and distributed cake, icecreams, juice and snacks to the kids and all those who were present on the occasion. The kids were given Aangan Tshirts which they gleefully accepted and would be wearing the same for all future events.
We all left the venue fully satisfied for this beautiful venture taking shape in a most profound manner. We wish success to all the kids of our Aangan and may they grow to be responsible and self sufficient generation to come.

“The kids enjoyed Mohanji’s and Rahul’s birthday cake yesterday! There was like a mini stampede, at one point, they literally fell forward like dominoes for that tiny slice. Yup, we should have bought two separate cakes like last year. We shall return… photo credit: Aaliaa Srishti” says Mata Ji.
There was a lot of excitement in the air as we prepared to decorate the altar to celebrate Mohanji’s birthday. This year, some Sathya Sai devotees joined us to celebrate the occasion.
The celebration started off with the chanting of the Sri Rudram and it flowed soon into Bhajans. Not only were these two items a surprise, we realized that the young people in the group are very talented.
As the Sri Rudram was being chanted , there was an energy surge in the atmosphere and presence of masters was felt very much.
This was followed by Paduka Puja and we had sumptuous prasadam which included a birthday cake, all homemade by the ladies of the group.
The first session of the day ended with Shivakavacham and Aarti.
Thereafter, later in the evening we proceeded to Ann’s Care Centre which is a nursing home for food seva. Delicious vegetarian food was catered by Sai Ananda Café, Selayang, Kuala Lumpur.
There are about 50 inmates and 6 caretakers at the centre. We spent time chatting with the inmates and helped to feed them. It was sheer happiness to see the smile on their faces and them enjoying the food. The caretaker also shared with us stories of how the inmates ended up at the centre.
As one of our family members stays very near the centre, we proceeded to his house from the centre and had a little satsang at his house sharing stories of various masters and also how some of them met Mohanji and how Mohanji had made a difference in their lives.
Mohanji’s birthday this year is truly a day to be remembered as it brought so much joy, laughter and sharing and bringing the family closer.
Jai Mohanji !

Our big ACT Birthday charity on 23rd February 2019
We prioritized the hungry street dwellers and car guards in the Mayfair areas of Johannesburg with our Food Seva.
The night before a very severely heavy thunderstorm lashed areas in and around Johannesburg.
The storm affected the power grids which cut off power supply to several areas. Our Mohanji Centre was also affected.
The blackouts continued into Saturday – our big celebration day at the Centre!
There was still the food to prepare for our afternoon Seva.
However Mohanji had it all under control.
By 4 pm Mrs Julie Reddy miraculously produced a huge piping hot pot of rice, lentils, potatoes, and variety of vegetables – all gently cooked together and liberally spiced with Mohanji Love. It was a healthy, aromatic dish and so gratefully accepted by those we served – especially after the thunderstorms.
The Mohanji family that gathered at Randburg helped pack the food into containers for easy distribution on the streets. We also had to ensure our volunteers were safe too as things can get rough in the blink of an eye in our part of the world.
But Mohanji is always with us and has us covered.
Some 115 containers were stacked in crates and loaded on a small truck and off we drove to Mayfair.
Two very dear people with the kindest hearts who attended a Mohanji event for the first time joined us wholeheartedly in the Seva. They unhesitatingly helped load all the packed crates onto the back of the truck and drove with us to the distribution points.
Volunteers followed in convoy in three other vehicles.
We parked our vehicles at the first point and waited just a little … they came, and despite their unimaginable hardships they respectfully lined up in a queue and gratefully accepted the welcomingly hot meal, with ‘Thank you. God Bless you.’
A few came back about three times!
We made two other stops and our volunteers additionally handed out carefully wrapped peanut butter and strawberry jam sandwiches, dozens of rolls… and Easter eggs!
They were so happy.
All thanks and gratitude to You Beloved Mohanji
Foos was distributed in Mayfair area of Johannesburg
ACT was honored to have our seva and to celebrate Mohanji’s birthday so aptly in the home of Mahatma Gandhi the embodiment of Satyagraha which He gifted to the world “ the Act of non violence and truth” , we catered food for 150 young and a feast of cakes and gave out gifts to all that were there. We addressed the youth on the teaching of Mohanji and were invited to please come again and address the community around there on the His teachings by the Facillitator at the Computor learning center. Thanks goes to Ela Gandhi granddaughter of the Mahatma for allowing us to serve there.
We also gave out lanyards and a few shirts & bags which Ela will hand out to the volunteer trainers who give their time free to tutor on computers at the center♥️
Mohanji Centre of Silence Mauritius started the day’s celebration with mantra chanting, Power of Purity meditation with energy transfer, gurupadh mantra and aarati. Everyone felt a wave of energy while offering flowers at Mohanji’s feet. Emotions through tears and dancing were released. One of the participants could see a glimpse of the shadow of Shiva and one of his Ganas. We are so blessed to have a guide and guru. Happy Birthday Mohanji
The day’s celebration continued with a program for needy children in a shelter in the centre of the island. Volunteers of the Mohanji association prepared a nice entertaining program for the kids. These included quiz competition, charade and mimics, light exercises and dancing and singing. The kids also enjoyed Musical chair.
The children have been joyfully participating in the entertainment.
Mohanji association offered a dinner and gifts to the children including shower gel, sanitary pads, nappies and cereals.
We ended the night with the birthday cake cutting.
Our deepest gratitude and thanks to Mohanji for giving all of us this opportunity to serve.
MohanjiUSA Family members located in different parts of the country celebrated their love and gratitude for Father by offering seva in a variety of ways on His Birthday!
Here are the highlights from M family in USA celebrating Mohanji’s birthday.
The cold and frigid temperatures in Eastern USA did not dampen the excitement of Mohanji’s birthday!
Virginia, USA started the day with HSTY yoga session and then came out to the nearby park for Conscious Walk despite the frigid temperatures.
Along with Yoga, CW, volunteers cooked hot vegetarian meals and brought a cake in honor of Mohanji to a local shelter where it was distributed during afternoon meal. Most people who come there are homeless, disabled, hungry, or unable to cook for themselves. They thoroughly enjoyed the delicious home cooked meal along with cake! They thanked us profusely and wished Mohanji for his birthday.
Evening started with heavy rains and despite that the planned event at a local retreat center turned out to be special. Mohanji’s loving presence was felt throughout the program. POP Meditation was done along with some new comers. During the POP, MET was offered by Mohanji Acharya (Lata Ganesh), and one of the recipient said as follow: “I felt Mohanji all the time during the evening and especially during MET, hands over my head were warm and when it touched my crown chakra I felt like the sky was in my head – as if all the electrons were buzzing with energy like network and in the end it felt like our beloved Father Mohanji was patting me like we do to a child. That night I slept straight for 10 hours, but normally I only sleep for 5-6 hours.” She also said that she could sense the tension in the air with other people prior to the meditation; however, after the POP the room transformed and the positive energy of Mohanji was felt deeply throughout the night.
Special songs including Bhajan by Anu and Lata, a Native American Prayer by Laurie, English song composed and rendered by Andra and a Sanskrit Bhajan composed and sung by Jyotsna.
Lastly, to conclude the beautiful evening, a vegan cake was cut by two lovely children and everyone joined in to sing a birthday song and expressed their heartiest wishes to Mohanji. It was a lovely evening filled with joy, laughter, love and peace in everyone’s heart. All the gratitude surrendered at the lotus feet of Mohanji for making this day special.
Sedona is a high energy center with powerful vortexes. Thea Ivie’s home which she fondly calls an Ashram is dedicated to Mohanji and Nath gurus where meditations, healing, and charity is an everyday thing. On February 23rd, Mohanji gayatri was chanted all day by two devotees. Food was donated, rent was paid for people who had difficulty in paying, and group healing was also done on behalf of Mohanji. All this was surrendered at the lotus feet of Mohanji.
Mohanji’s Birthday was celebrated for the first time in Texas.
The idea came to one of the volunteers to have a vegan cake as an offering after the meditation as a prasad. Upon searching, one store carried the last one in stock. It was held for the team for a later pickup. Later, an idea also came to feed the birds. Since the store to pick up the cake was near a lake, it would be a great place to feed the birds as well. With this intention, the two volunteers drove to the venue and were met by the ducks who flocked to get food from their hands. This was something special because animals don’t generally take food from strangers like that, so this indeed was grace making it all happen.
After satisfying the hungry birds, the cake was picked up and one of the volunteers (Padmaja) who is also a Mohanji acharya drove to the mediation hall. She was very tired and had difficulty driving but kept on going because she needed to be at the venue at the scheduled time. The cake was cut followed and Bliss of Silence meditation was conducted.
During the meditation, MET was offered, and amazing experiences were felt by all. One of the attendees Anu writes: “”Attended Bliss of Silence meditation and it was one of a kind of experience. I felt very refreshed and positive vibes were felt all through my body by energy transfer. Looking forward for more such lessons. Thank you Padmaja and Lakshmi for the initiative.”
Not only the attendees, even Padmaja was refreshed and felt full of energy and was able to drive home safely.
Its indeed true that when we have a strong desire to serve, Mohanji always makes a way for us. Thankyou Mohanji for giving us opportunities to serve at your Lotus Feet.
Feb 24, Conscious Walk and Mai tri healing was done.
In the sunshine state of California, there was a wild bird party on the feeder at home. Every being experience hunger the same, as Mohanji teaches us. And what wonderful way of celebrating that by serving the tiny birds around the neighborhood.
Food (pasta) was cooked at home by the devotees for the seva at the women’s shelter close by since there is no kitchen on premises. Pizza, garlic bread, vegetables and cake were also picked up to serve up to 60 people. Serving at this shelter was not a coincidence but a blessing by our dear Mohanji. Normally the volunteers drive an hour to a different shelter where they cook food themselves. However, on Mohanji’s birthday, serving at this shelter nearby made things easier and more memorable. Later, the day POP along with MET was held at local Sai temple.
On Sunday the 24th, extra 30 sandwiches were offered at a shelter by a devotee.
Along with with extra 108 food packets were prepared and distributed in California.
Our heartfelt gratitude to Mohanji for forever fulfilling our wishes even on his special day 😊
Once again, since we are so far spread but our love for Mohanji expressed in so many unique ways.
In Florida, it was like a big wedding party where kids and moms got together and prepped up food bags consisting of granola bars, oranges, apples, peanut butter sandwiches, and chips.
304 sandwiches, fruits, bananas, apples, clementine, water crates, cookies/biscuits were delivered to a local soup kitchen. This state doesn’t allow cooked food to be served, so the volunteers did the best in this option is to donate healthy food in remembrance of Mohanji.
NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY and LOS ANGELES
In New York, New Jersey and LA, birds were given food, pantry supplies were delivered to a local soup kitchen, and Power of Purity meditation was done.
Along with the seva in the United States, Mohanji family took the seva to INDIA as well.
150 food packets were distributed to the kids of Mohanji ka aangan in Bangalore. 200 meals in Shirdi and 200 meals in Katra (Jammu), and mass food seva at Sanjay Gandhi animal shelter (included cattle, horses, geese, monkeys and birds) were also conducted by the USA Mohanji family.
Mohanji’s grace poured in for his 54th birthday celebration. It seemed like grace poured in from every angle. New venues, new experiences, new ideas, blogs, inspirations took off. Few of the members were also able to attend and be in his presence for New Delhi satsang. Along with all this, one blog and a bhajan was also submitted at the lotus feet of dear Mohanji by Lata Ganesh which you can listen here.
Even though we are a small group here in Perú, the blessings we are receiving are beyond anything we could have imagined.
Heartiest and warmest birthday greetings to our blessing in the form of Mohanji!
The Canada family celebrated Mohanji’s birthday with four events. It started with a blood donation drive on 21st February where the devotees donated blood to the nearby Canada blood donation centers and expressed their gratitude by helping others.
This day was also marked through inauguration of our Shri Sai Baba’s visit to devotees home to bless them, spread HIS teachings and awareness about our Ashram . On 23rd February morning, after having the Abhishek (bathing) Baba started HIS beautiful and divine journey of Sai Palki to his ardent devotees Gaurav & Seema Kaushal’s house ( ‘Sai Dham’). This house is graced with Sai’s divine energy, it also has a replica of the Shirdi Dwarkamai in its basement. Shri Sai Baba was welcomed with love and devotion. In order to spread Shri Sai’s teachings the devotee was encouraged to read a chapter from Shri Sai Sat Charita book. After reading, Shri Sai was worshiped by chanting HIS 108 names under supervision of our Ashram priest, followed by food offering and Aarti. This was followed by gifting a Sai Sat Charita book to the host with a bhav (feeling) that they will inculcate a habit of reading on daily basis. Our Datta Tapovan Ashram pamphlets containing activities and other details were distributed to all the people present in there.
After bidding farewell, Shri Sai Baba visited second home of Neeti and Ranjan Rhode. The house was beautifully decorated and the entire path and staircase was ushered with Rose petals. After completion of Sai Satcharitra reading, Puja (worship) and bhog (food offering), the host surprise everybody by expressing their desire for celebrating Mohanji’s birthday by cutting a cake. Baba, then set out for his last visit to Bhupinder & Nina Garg’s home. After completion of all 3 rituals, a very lavish lunch was prepared for all the devotees present in large numbers.
Baba finally headed back to ashram. At ashram, all devotees offered Paad Puja (worshipping Mohanji’s Lotus fees) by chanting 108 Mohanji’s name followed by meditation. A birthday cake was cut followed by kirtan and dance singing glory of our Mohanji.
Since food offering to the hungry is very dear to Mohanji, a food drive to the homeless and needy was offered on 24th February morning by the Mohanji Canada team.
AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND
This year in Australia, Mohanji’s birthday was marked with meditations , homa and charitable activities in Melbourne and Sydney. The day started with a powerful homa in Mohanji’s name. Power of purity meditation was conducted in Melbourne . Blossoms of love meditation was held in Sydney followed by cake cutting.
In Auckland, New Zealand, a ‘dhan’ was done at a temple in Mohanji’s name.
All mountains soar but one soars above the rest. So too are my experiences with Mohanji. Let me record the most cherished one. “More than 40 years back, I had the unique privilege of being initiated into japa yoga by my Guru who was an exalted master. He told me very clearly, “if you stay loyal to this path and tread steadfastly, your Parama Guru will come in search of you.” Little did I realise then, the significance of this powerful message. But in the course of my journey, I used to reflect on His words often, praying and hoping that the Parama Guru that He talked about may come in sukshma (subtle) and not sthula (physical) form. Even after coming into contact with Mohanji, I didn’t realise this until recently that my eternal Parama Guru has indeed arrived! True masters’ words never fail.
With Anantha koti pranams at my Parama Guru’s feet
A Soul who has no Birth and no Death is unshakable as a Guru, whom we all have in the form of Mohanji.
Birthday wishes to dear Father Mohanji who is there for all of us always, every moment. On this auspicious day, I wish that may He keep on guiding us on the golden path, our thoughts and actions always and for ever.
My sincere Pranams. With deep reverence and love I wish you a very “Happy Birthday” and a big “THANK YOU.” Please keep your grace on us always and let us rest at your lotus feet eternally. Every single day is an experience for me with you and I know you are watching us and I have no words to describe my gratitude for all that you have given us. There are times when I fall back and I don’t do things as you have said, but I have always felt you pull me back and put me on track .
I have composed a small poem in your memory dear Mohanji. Please allow me to give it to you on this happy occasion .
Journey in time
I was a wandering soul until we met
The time stood still as our eyes met
I felt the divine in you as I wept
Day and night as I slept
I couldn’t describe love before
But you showed me love and more
I didn’t know what I was meant to be
But you sent people to help me
I went up and down as days passed by
You gave me strength and asked me to fly
I was lost in thoughts most of the time
You showed me how my doubts were as bitter as lime
Lord Krishna was Arjuna’s charioteer in the battle of Kurukshetra. The Parthasarathy.
Blessed are we to have Mohanji as our divine charioteer in this lifetime. Surrendering the chariot of life to him, handing over the reins, we do the things we have to do, meet the challenges we have to, love and share, fight our battles, group and depart, just the way life wants us to. Harmony outside, harmony within, liberation a reachable goal with Yogiraj Parahbrama Mohanji holding the reins and leading!!
Pranams Father. Wishing you a wonderful birthday. May you be blessed with good health and happiness always. Thank you for holding my hand when I thought all was lost. You gave me a purpose to live post retirement. Deep gratitude for everything. Love you.
It brings me immense happiness and at the same time my heart is overflowing with gratitude for your coming into my life, and I have reached a stage that every breath of mine exhaling out is only because of your utmost grace.
ON THIS GLORIOUS DAY I WISH YOU MANY HAPPY RETURNS OF THE DAY
I cherish his friendship the most. I have never called him “Father,” nor will I ever be able to, like most people do.
I cherish the way he explains the most complicated things in a simplistic, hilarious, story telling method. Being in his presence, we learn to shed our ego and open our hearts in acceptance.
He is probably the most ‘peoples’ person’ in the Spiritual Genre, with no frills and tantrums. His “Down to Earth” persona, breaks the common perception of a modern-day Guru, who people identify with a particular dress code or a particular mannerism. As he always says, “I am You,” and one can perceive the depth of these three words, when one surrenders with absolute faith.
Humble pranams at your lotus feet. Wishing you a very happy and blessed birthday and a year ahead. Immense gratitude for everything that you have done and are doing for us. Pray we live up-to your teachings, your grace and protection always be with us and we never leave your hand.
How can we ever fully comprehend the infinite blessings of being connected to a Sat Guru of your stature? How can we ever feel enough gratitude? How can we ever qualify ourselves to assist in your mission? It is only with your grace that we can even make an attempt. It is a great blessing and privilege to be connected with you and I wish that your birthday, which we cherish and celebrate, is just one pearl in a long string we are allowed to witness.
Congratulations and may your mission grow in the world as well as in our hearts ️
Mohanji, a few words is not enough to describe You. However, to sum it, I will say that You are God’s gift to humanity in general but especially to those who want to know the truth of existence. Your sincerity, simplicity and selflessness are really signs of a true Guru. Jai Mohanji.
I enjoy more and fear less. I witness life occurrences with more faith and compassion and less (negative) emotions. This was only possible through your deep and clear teachings and more significantly, your example! Dear Mohanji, for your birthday I wish you joy and peace and in the years to come may many more honest seekers find their way to your light!
I see You as the Superstar of the spiritual world. Just as the stars are self illuminating and can light up the sky even in the darkest of nights, You dispel the darkness in our lives by leading us in the path of light and love.
On this auspicious day Mohanji, I would like to offer You my deepest gratitude in few forms:
Jai Mohanji. You held my hand tight and took me on the path of truth, awareness and to my original destiny. In every second, You are with me. Now I just can’t imagine my life without ‘My Mohanji.” You are my true Master. Long live Mojanji. Pranam.
Your presence in our lives is something that we cherish and value beyond what words can express. Your thoughts fill us with joy, innocence and gratitude. Your teachings give us purpose and clarity. We have experienced that love and faith in You gives us contentment and stability in life. We are eternally grateful for Your love, grace and blessings, today and always.
Happy Birthday Mohanji! My life has taken a total turn with Your presence. Instead of fears and sadness, there is an indescribable joy in my heart. Thank You for showing me the way to light and holding my hand at every step.
Love always and forever.
To put this into a few words is not at all enough. I feel so blessed to have You Mohanji in our lives. I don’t know what I did in the past to have the grace of You. I cherish You in my life because every time I get bogged down by negativity or negative thoughts I remember You and feel extremely lucky to have You in my life. You are the constant positivity in my life. You are my path and You are my destination. Thank You is a small word, I love You so much Mohanji.
You are the dispeller of darkness, the Lord of Compassion and Unconditional Love.
This is the transformation which happened in my Karmic family, for my dear husband, children and myself. Dark forces bled our happiness for several years. Light and Salvation in the form of Mohanji did away with our trauma. No words can describe the Feeling. Kriya and Your Path to Liberation …
With Deep Gratitude and Humility I bow at Your Feet. Jai Mohanji Baba.
I cherish You in my life because I can see Sathya Sai and Shirdi Sai in You to whom I am deeply connected. I see God in Your physical form. I see All in One Master i.e. Mohanji. I can feel Your love and the transformation which is slowly taking place within me. I love being in Your presence and listening to Your Satsang. I enjoy the Power of Purity Meditation which I consider a big gift You have given us and it gives me an opportunity to see You often during the meditation.
I wish You a very Happy Birthday and may You always be with me wherever I am.
You are my Truth. You empower me to be myself, to live truthfully and freely. You are always Near. I am thankful for all that You do for the Universe and for Us. We love You, we cherish You. Have a happy and blessed birthday Babaji.
I cherish Your presence in my life, because whatever You say, just resonates with me and You explain things simply, for everyone to understand. Mohanji, You exude love, kindness and compassion and it makes me want to be a better person, while striving for liberation!
You have brought my husband and me, under one guide, one mission and have aligned our purpose. We are so distinct yet complementary now. You have given my body, our marriage, our material belongs a purpose, which is happiness in Sewa.
Unconditional love, compassion, selfless service, purity, faith, awareness, acceptance, gratitude and liberation were mere words till You made them a reality. You make life lighter. Thank you for making our lives so beautiful.
Happy birthday to our beloved Guruji. Thank you Father for coming to this world and made our lives meaningful. Thank you for being with us all the time even when we are not aware. Thank you for leading us through this journey. Thank you for holding our hands through life. Wish you long life, happiness and peace.
Love you so much for ever our beloved Father
I cherish Your presence in my life because I am a completely different person after meeting You! I have never had more understanding, more peace, love, patience, compassion, happiness, a mind clear of heaviness. I have never had more knowledge on what I can do, understanding of my natural self before meeting You. I have never had such STABILITY in my life than after meeting You. I am not swayed away with every wave of life that keeps changing from bitter to sweet and from sweet to bitter. Waves of life are the same, but my inner self is not. I care lesser and lesser about bitter & sweet, and I care more and more for the happiness and stability of all beings of this world.
Thank You Mohanji for keeping me with You every moment.
I cherish being with You as Your teachings expand my awareness, warming my heart. You are ever-present even when doubts cloud me. Sitting outside the Ramana Maharishi Ashram in front of Arunachal, my monkey mind questioned if You are with me and lo and behold there was a clear sign. Mohanji’s eyes, nose and beard appeared as clear as day light to say “I am with you always.” This picture says it all!
Thank You for being me all the time, every time, Mohanji.
Mohanji for me is an unknowable vast consciousness yet an incarnation of a tangible force of compassion and a determined compass for liberation.
We are deeply grateful that Existence has sent Him to us, like a lighthouse, a family and a friend – never a stranger. We pray that Mohanji be continued to be blessed with excellent health and boundless energy to fulfill what He has come to do. Though the consciousness is the alpha and omega, we deeply celebrate His divinely blessed coming in body to walk amongst us all. We are grateful. We are blessed to have His presence so palpable in our lives.
Mohanji, you are my Viswa Mitra, a friend for lifetimes. What I cherish most is your humility and the unconditional love that you have for all beings with absolutely no discrimination. Your ability to make everyone feel comfortable and happy is so admirable. You speak to each one of us at our level of maturity, helping us understand the most complicated things easily. In your presence, it is a no thought stage with no desires and total bliss!
Lots of love and hugs! Help me stay in your consciousness now and for ever.
Wishing You a very Happy and wonderful Birthday. Your coming into our lives is like a rebirth in this lifetime. Ever grateful for Your presence in our lives Baba. Your guidance and love has added fragrance to our lives. Our wish for you. Pallandu pallanu pallaayirathaandu pala kodi noorayiram…
Many happy returns of the day Father. Thank you so much for being a part of my life, leading me from darkness to light. I am eternally grateful. Wish you a very long life and may devotees follow your path and teachings without deviation. Love and Regards. Thank you so much for all you have given me
A thought about “Mohanji”
A glance of “Mohanji”
A name “Mohan/ji”
I cherish anything and everything when it relates to Mohanji. I am indebted to Him for His loving presence in my life.
It is meaningless to wish You a happy birthday as You have no birth or death. But I still love to see You in this form which I think connected me to You. I love You Mohanji. Wish You a lovely birthday and wish every heart turns out to be Your beautiful residence. May they cherish Your stay and fill themselves with unconditional love.
When a child is born it’s said that, “It’s a rebirth of the Mother,” as she undergoes that immense pain to give birth to her child.
Mohan Ji gave birth to us. We wish more power and strength to Mohanji.
Tvam-Eva Maataa Ca Pitaa Tvam-Eva | Tvam-Eva Bandhush-Ca Sakhaa Tvam-Eva | Tvam-Eva Viidyaa Dravinnam Tvam-Eva | Tvam-Eva Sarvam Mama Deva Deva ||
Wishing You a very happy birthday and many more to come! Wishing You a very healthy and long journey touching lives far and wide. Thank You for proving again and again that the physical trappings are but ephemeral. Ever so grateful to You for awakening the divine consciousness in me and merging it with the Divine Consciousness that is YOU.
We met Mohanji when he came to the UK I think 2012. Since then we have an affinity and Love for His teachings and Q&A answers- articulated so simply and to the point. Then with His subsequent visits to the UK, we grew fonder of Mohanji, who gave us incredible confidence and unconditional LOVE.
Mohanji has certainly shown His true self and His power. I felt that His energy has expanded to show people how to Love and serve the needy, including the animals and divine souls who have taken birth for whatever reasons.
Mohanji has given us a great blessing by initiating us to Consciouness Kriya. Back in year 2000, the Naadi predicted that would happen to us as per previous life.
We have been to Master’s retreat twice and what I have witnessed and seen I cannot write, but Master had confirmed this.
His Birthday is on the 23rd of February and we will celebrate it in awe and Love, and trust there will be many more where we could be in His physical presence. We are sure He will be with us.
Before Mohanji came into my life every breath every moment was painful, as if stepping on glass and swallowing fire. Nothing made sense and I had no reason to keep living. The spark of divine presence, beauty and compassion that is Mohanji gives me a reason to wake up each day.
Being with Mohanji I feel love for myself and others, something I never dreamed to happen in this lifetime.
How can I begin to express my gratitude for finding me and showing me myself.
After I lost my father who brought me to this world, God came to me as my father in the form of Mohanji. His unconditional love, compassion and caring guidance to me and above all accepting my service to Him and the mission, has completely transformed the Aishwariya before meeting Him in this life.
How can I thank You enough Mohanji for what Your presence means in my life and I cherish this beyond my own existence.
All I can pray to God is that let my Father, Mohanji’s hand be on my head till I exist.
I wish You a very happy birthday! On this auspicious occasion many beings will benefit by the service of Your followers. You have inspired and supported many of us to achieve things and go to places we could only ever dream of! You have brought so much love and light into this world and I pray that as our gift to You, we can continue to follow Your practices and teachings to spread even more of Your divine love and light to every corner of the world!
Wishing You on Your birthday is not just another opportunity to convey our gratitude to You for being in our lives, as we cherish Your presence every moment, every breath. Your grace in our lives, not just the two of us and our two sons, rather on our families is unfathomable, incomprehensible and we remain grateful for the rest of our lives.
While wishing for Your long life and good health (for Your physical form), we wish to continue to be Your instruments in accomplishing Your larger mission and serve You eternally with our utmost conviction, faith and surrender.
Mohanji’s presence in our lives is the biggest blessing we could have ever asked for. Awareness, purpose, gratitude, kinship, compassion, fearlessness – words cannot do justice to describe the lessons we learn from him every day and every moment. He is a constant reminder of what we can truly be, if we get away from the mundane thought processes. Our whole family is grateful that we are able to connect with him and revel in the security of grace that encircles us at all times.
February 2018 is when a new testimonials team commenced their seva with Mohanji’s blessings. Since then there is a growing awareness of the true value of sharing experiences and that has certainly kept the team busy.
Adding value to society in any form or shape is our biggest dharma and what better way than to be able to spread the divine leelas of Mohanji. Through this process we are slowly realising that each experience is not a mere coincidence but a piece that fits into the larger canvas of our individual paths. “Guru Leela” the book of testimonials shared by devotees is one of our offerings at the lotus feet of Mohanji. This was only possible with Mohanji’s grace and it is continuing to spread the vibrations and energy of Mohanji.
We are eternally grateful to You for being with us every moment initiating every thought, flowing through every word and implementing every action. You play with us with amusement and love but you are ever watchful and protective.
With Your grace, we place our intention to carry on with spreading Your divine leela being Your instruments for ever till every soul in this world is able to see, feel and breathe your divinity.
Wish you a very Happy Birthday and many more to come!
And last but not the least, here is the devotional song “Guru Mohana”, the cherry on top of the Birthday cake (Vegan and sugar free!).
In May 2018, Testimonials team started a special drive of collecting devotees’ thoughts and expressions of how they conceive themselves as “Being Mohanji”. As everyone knows Mohanji has various facets, expressions and subtlety and everyone perceives Him differently.
This drive was not about what devotees think of Mohanji, rather what they think of themselves, if they were Mohanji. In a way, this would show which facet of Mohanji they connect to and which is the characteristic that they reflect on.
We thought of running this drive of publishing devotees’ expressions one a day every day for a month. However, this became so popular that devotees from various locations started sending their expressions. Today, at the end of August, we have reached exactly 108th expression.
We felt we would offer this flower with 108 petals at the lotus feet of Mohanji – a tiny offering to show what devotees are reflecting inspired by Him and being merged in His consciousness.
Dear Mohanji, our deep gratitude to You for the ocean deep inspiration and continuous guidance in bringing out “a Mohanji” from each one’s heart.
If every devotee / follower of Mohanji displayed even 10% of what Mohanji truly is, this world will be the real heaven, where there is only unconditional love and synchronicity between all beings of Mother Earth!
We will not stop this drive with this one flower with 108 petals. We will keep continuing creating more flowers. Feel free to write yours at email@example.com.
In the meantime, please enjoy the fragrance of this sacred flower with all its 108 soft and sweet petals.
Videos with these expressions are also published on YouTube!
The 108 petals of the “Being Mohanji” flower are as below:

“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.
I bow to my Guru who opened my eyes, that were blinded by the darkness of ignorance, and revealed to me the light of knowledge.
