TRUTH AS IT IS

By Subhasree, London

During the coronavirus pandemic, inspired by Mohanji’s call for action, the UK family also came together and started doing online programmes from morning till night. We have had sessions of chanting starting from 6 am to sessions of book reading, meditations, online Mai-Tri, special devotional songs etc.

During these sessions, Mohanji’s presence is often felt by the person who is conducting, as well as those who are viewing. Sometimes Mohanji makes us feel his presence even beyond energetically, many times showing physical signals too.

It’s very easy to discard such signals as imagination or just mere coincidences. For someone, who needs the assurance of Mohanji’s presence, he shows it. Such a signal becomes special for us, because we notice this signal on a specific day, or during a specific session, but not all the time. These signals are not imaginary. These are very much true to show Mohanji’s presence without presence.

Let me narrate a few experiences that we have observed in the last few days.

Last week, on 7th April, during Hanuman Jayanti, Harish and I were chanting the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra. We were live on Facebook.

(https://www.facebook.com/mohanjiuk/videos/685691758915636/)

As we finished chanting, few of the viewers sent some snapshots from this chanting session, where Mohanji’s photo looked exactly like Hanumanji. No doubt, no coincidence, no imagination.

We understood Mohanji’s kindness and compassion. It was his way of showing his presence in a form that someone could connect to. It was such a blessing for all of us to feel the presence of Hanumanji, the Consciousness of Hanuman through Mohanji, through Mohanji’s Consciousness on that occasion.

After all, Para Brahma is one, and only one.

On 13th April, we had a special event, continuous chanting for 12 hours, starting at 6 am. Chai was doing the chanting at that time. While she was about to start, she had some technical issues. She really needed help, and called out to Mohanji, “Please be with me Mohanji.” Of course, her session went on well. When she finished her session (https://www.facebook.com/chailaisiong/videos/10213718080261299/), she noticed the wick of the candle that was in front of Mohanji’s photo showing a clear ‘M’ shape. She realised it was Mohanji showing her the evidence that indeed he was with her.

Then on 14th April, Harish was chanting at 6 am. After his chanting, Pravin bhai messaged saying that he noticed a bright light at the center of Mohanji’s forehead on the photo.

After this message, we contemplated on all these experiences.

I thought this might be the reflection of the ceiling light. We have many spotlights on our ceiling and most of the time we can see those multiple lights as multiple dots over the photo. However today, how come just one was there and exactly on the 3rd eye? Where were the other dots, as all the lights were on!

That made me realise, for someone who needs that assurance of Mohanji’s presence, he shows it.

May be Pravin bhai (the viewer who notified us about this special appearance on the photo), needed some assurance that morning and Mohanji made his presence felt.

When I was talking to Pravin bhai later, he further mentioned that, usually in the morning he doesn’t watch FB online sessions. But when he woke up this morning and looked at his phone, the FB session opened up without any notification. Hence he started watching and noticed this dot. He also mentioned that this dot was expanding at times, it was not static. He even showed this to his wife.

Then he mentioned that yesterday during the 12 hour chanting, when he was chanting the Shiva Mantra, he was feeling Mohanji very much and thought in his mind, is Mohanji really listening to his chanting?

So after seeing this dynamic dot on Mohanji’s third eye on this photo, and the way he was made to see this session, he felt it was surely Mohanji giving him darshan and showing that he was pleased with Pravin bhai’s chanting yesterday.

After listening to this detailed account from Pravin bhai, I was sure of my understanding that even though Mohanji is always with us, he shows such symbols at specific instances to show physical evidence to the person.

Just as he did yesterday for Chai too, she was praying to Mohanji to be with her and he showed her his presence through the candle!

Whether it is the ceiling light reflections or a candle, these real material things show something beyond the material items! The true reality beyond the physical!

I was convinced, this is not imagination. This is very much true.

Truth as it IS!

Because this is Mohanji’s response to the love and call of his devotees.

From self-hate to self-acceptance

By Nikolina Dragojević, Serbia

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

bosanke piramide 2

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

bosanske piramide 2016

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

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

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

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

bosnia 2019

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

with Mohanji 1

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Guru

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fire of awareness

 

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

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

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

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

Pin
Pin

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yatra with Mohanji

By Ulla, Denmark

Yatra with Mohanji – a song of gratitude offered to my dear Mohanji, on this blessed occasion of Guru Poornima, 16th July 2019.

The video for this song prepared by dear Neelu, here.

About a year ago I was visiting the Somaskanda Ashram in the Swiss Alps. Mohanji had participated in the inauguration of the Temple Murtis there in the previous year.

Having a dinner conversation with two of the Brothers, we talked about Mohanji, whom none of us had the opportunity to meet yet. Until then I had only read a few of His blogs but never thought of meeting Him. Now I felt a growing urge to connect with Mohanji, to see Him in person. For the rest of my stay in the Ashram, every day at every puja, I would see Mohanji standing in the Gopurum next to the Somaskanda Murti which consists of a huge Lingam and three Naags. First I thought it was an act of my imagination, but I felt a connection was being established.

When I asked how I could meet Mohanji, people said: “Don’t worry, just wait until next Summer, then He will probably visit the UK again.” But I felt there was no time to waste, that I was not going to sit and wait for things to happen. That is why I went to India for a retreat with Mohanji in Rishikesh. That was the beginning of a journey beyond my imagination.

At the retreat, I met a part of the Mohanji community from around the world, but one thing they had in common was that they all seemed very authentic, natural, loving and unassuming.

Was it the satsangs, the Shaktipat or the mere presence of a Master? I am not able to say what happened, but my life has changed drastically. A lot of stuff has fallen away, relationships, people, fears and anxieties. But, so many blessings have followed in the form of awareness, strong sense of purpose, love and connection to Mohanji, and to the Mohanji global family.

My wish is to share His gift of consciousness, love, and awareness with all the people I meet. On the day of Guru Poornima, we celebrate our connection to the Master. It is my humble wish that this music may become a means for us to always remember you Mohanji, always surrender everything at your feet and realize that we are inseparable.

I have never composed a song before. Since I uttered my wish to learn to compose music, things took shape at rocket speed. Two weeks ago one morning, words came to me and a poem happened, and in the afternoon the melody came. The next day I went to a friend’s house where we put some chords together and she told me about a friend hers, who has a recording studio in his flat. A few people have been involved, some came by and dropped out again due to the deadline and other people replaced them, but the doors remained always open.

So fasten your seat belts when Mohanji is behind the wheel. This shows His efficient manner of getting things done.

Please click below to hear the song.

The process of making this song has been such pure bliss. Thank you for making it possible, dear Mohanji.
Love you always
Ulla

The truth beyond revelations

Mohanji as Mohanji

Subhasree Thottungal, UK
May 2019

As I was sitting in our ‘Mohanji room’ and looking at the altar, I thought, I should bring home a Datta idol. Sometime later, I saw photos of Mohanji’s home in Bangalore and saw Mahavatar Babaji’s idol in those photos. I had seen this before too. However, this time suddenly I asked myself, why have I never felt inclined to have Babaji’s idol in my altar? Well, with time, I just forgot about this thought.

VTM_8_BlrAshram_hall
Altar in Bangalore Ashram

Just a few months back, in August, just two days before Mohanji’s visit to London, I had a really amazing, unbelievable experience regarding Mahavtar Babaji. I had written this story and published it in Mohanji’s chronicles “Stone to crystal”

The story was about the expansion beyond my body that I had experienced after reading Mohanji’s written blogs on Mahavatar Babaji.

Anyway, a few days later, suddenly during an informal discussion, I was asked,

“For a complete stranger, what age Mohanji would look like?”

Immediately His image flashed as if He was standing in front of me. This was happening instantly.  I spontaneously said 40, or even may be between 35 to 40. Then something just made me write ‘Mohanji is ageless.’

Yes, that’s how Mohanji appeared to me, He is ageless! At this point, I had no comparison of Him with anyone else.

Ageless Mohanji

The next morning, I received a photo of a majestic rainbow in Singapore. Unlike my regular gross mind, I could see little beyond and understood that I was not just being shown a beautiful rainbow…I was being reminded of Dattatreya!

As the day progressed, in a miraculous way, I came across a blog that showed me the connection between Mohanji & Hanuman. During this again the reminder of my spontaneous response to a conversation regarding Mohanji as ‘ageless’ flooded my memory.

That night I had knee pain which was getting unbearable. The pain was so bad that I woke up and couldn’t sleep again. This was about 3 am. I kept praying to Mohanji, keeping my own hand on my knee for healing, feeling Mohanji’s energy flowing through.

After some time, I felt better but my sleep had gone. So I took my phone to read something. While I was browsing on my phone, a blog by  ‘Vanamali’ on Mahavatar Babaji flashed up. I wondered, is this author ‘Vanamali’, the ‘Vanamali Mataji’ that I know as Mohanji’s spiritual mother? I opened the blog. It was indeed her. I started reading. She was describing a place called Katargama (also known as Kathirgamam) in Sri Lanka, as the Kailash of the South. She had explained about Lord Murugan’s incarnation in that place. Before I realised, it was time to go to the office. I left the blog reading incomplete and continued with my day’s activities. Later on in the evening, I picked up the story from where I had left off. This reading brought me the awareness of something majestic, that I had so far not realised.

In the blog, Vanamali Mataji explained that Kataragama is the place where Lord Murugan (son of Shiva) had moved to from Kailash. Lord Murugan then incarnated as Mahavatar Babaji, in a small village in South India. At the age of 15, as a young boy, Babaji had travelled to Kataragama in Sri Lanka! That’s where he met his Guru, Siddhar Bhoganathar. At the age of 16, Babaji was blessed by his Guru Bhoganathar with ‘Kaya Kalpa’ – to remain a youth forever. While I was reading this part, suddenly ‘Ageless – Mohanji is ageless’ flashed in my memory. It felt as if an electric current went through me.

Mahavatar Babaji
The ageless Mahavatar Babaji

I continued my reading. The blog explained about Babaji’s journey back from Sri Lanka to India. In South India, Babaji met Guru Agastya, who accepted him as his disciple and taught him Kriya yoga, and the importance of breath. At this point of the story, I was reminded of how Devi Amma of Bangalore, a highly evolved spiritual master, disciple and spiritual daughter of Agastya Rishi, considers Mohanji as her spiritual brother. She says he is none other than Agastya Rishi’s son! Also, the fact that Mohanji imparts the teaching of Kriya, giving importance to the breath, struck a chord, while I was reading about Babaji!

Even though I was reading about Babaji, the image that I had all through this time was of Mohanji.

The story continued. Babaji was in the Himalayas, meditating in the cave. Suddenly a vision flashed to me. I saw Mohanji meditating in this cave! Every word that was mentioning Babaji, the only vision I had in front of my eyes was of Mohanji.

Slowly I realised, whom I see in the very ordinary form of Mohanji is much beyond that.

Surely, He is none other than Babaji himself.

Surely, He is none other than Murugan himself!

I was seeing a smile in my own face, a smile of joy. As if I have found a treasure, I suddenly realised, ah, this is why Mohanji loves going to Skanda Vale!

Skanda Vale is a sacred place where Guru Subramaniam has built a temple for Skanda, also called Murugan. He believed and so does everyone else, that Skanda lives there!

I always thought Mohanji goes to Skanda Vale because of the Guru Parampara, Datta tradition, His love for the Skanda Vale community.

Let me tell you a couple of flash-back stories on Skanda Vale here.

In September 2017, I was blessed to accompany Mohanji to Skanda Vale when He was there for a few days enriching the Skanda Vale community with His valuable presence. During that time, Mohanji had told me that Skanda Vale is very special to Him and to give His time there is a very high priority for Him. At that time, I just attributed His statement to His humility and His duty to the Datta Tradition. Again in August 2018, Mohanji went to Skanda Vale, for a purpose even more powerful – to do the consecration ceremony of the Datta idol!

abhishek1

While I was completely merged in the divinity of Mohanji’s actions in Skanda Vale, I was surely far away from understanding why was He doing all these things!

Coming back, I now realised that reading Vanamali Mataji’s blog was not just any ordinary blog reading. This was a great revelation to me. I understood that Mohanji goes to Skanda Vale, the place where Skanda lives. Because He himself is none other than Skanda (Murugan)!

I then remembered, just sometime back, it was an auspicious day for Skanda and my friend Radha sent me a short video clip of her father, Subramaniam uncle doing aarati to Skanda with a special deepam. This was not any ordinary aarati ritual, it was indeed a very powerful one. Subramaniam uncle is not just an ardent devotee of Murugan, he is a devoted disciple of Sri Sathya Sai Baba and loves Mohanji immensely. To receive the video clip of this ritual to Skanda was not ordinary. I had felt the divinity that time to receive the clip, but I only understand now, why was I allowed by the divine to view this!

Kartika Puja
Special Kartika puja (for Skanda) at Subramaniam uncle’s home

Whether we think of Hanuman or Dattatreya or Murugan or Mahavatar Babaji – all are an ansha (part) of Shiva, and ultimately Shiva himself!

That’s the revelation of this incarnation that I know as Mohanji.

In just one day, I had the visions or realisation of Lord Datta, Lord Hanuman and now Murugan and Mahavatar Babaji. Ah, a truth beyond my imagination was unfolding.

A naïve question that had appeared in my mind a few days back about the connection with Mahavatar Babaji was being answered by the divine in such a beautiful way revealing the utmost truth about Mohanji to me. This revelation was happening to me through my own realisation, not by someone telling me! I was surely more than overwhelmed. I was totally awestruck.

In this state, I couldn’t stop myself from expressing this experience to Mohanji and begging Him to confirm this. However, as usual, Mohanji was far from being emotional. He gave me a straight clear answer,

 “I am Mohanji. Nothing more. Nothing less.”

mohanji ageless
“I am Mohanji. Nothing more. Nothing less.”

I felt so silly to have asked Him this question.

Did I need to? No.

Does the answer matter? No.

The revelation to me was my own realisation. That was my TRUTH. Period.

My story doesn’t finish here.

Mohanji didn’t answer me. But the divine had other plans. 🙂

Next morning, I received Preethi Gopalarathnam’s WhatsApp message. She had forwarded me a message conversation between Mohanji and her, the previous day. Her message to Mohanji was about her urge for visiting Kataragama in Sri Lanka!

mohanji skanda
An unbelievable similarity between the photo of young Mohanji and young Murugan in a calendar!

As I rubbed my eyes, I was reading the message repeatedly. Am I really reading it correctly? The day before when I discovered about Kataragama and the follow-up on the unfolding truth of Murugan, Mahavatar Babaji, and Mohanji, she was at the same time, thousands of miles away, feeling the same pull too! This couldn’t be just mere coincidence. I realised through this, Mohanji has answered my previous night’s question!

This is now so clear, as clear as a crystal, to me.

All through the day, my whole body was shivering but the heart was full of joy. I don’t know what enlightenment means or feels, but I certainly felt enlightened that day.

Like the little girl who receives a very expensive toy beyond her dreams, I had something that I never could even dare to think of! In my naïve mind, simple Mohanji was enough. This truth indeed was a huge realisation for me.

I started writing about this experience. Usually, when I feel the urge to express my thoughts, I just write it quickly and share. I strongly feel that Mohanji doesn’t delay in giving me experiences, so I must not delay in expressing and sharing it, as every experience that I receive, is not just for me. Someone somewhere will benefit from it too.

But, this blog has taken many days, weeks, even months!

In the meantime, ‘Guru Leela’ happened. Mohanji Acharya training happened. Kumbh Mela happened. All three out of the world, beyond this lifetime experiences, happened. But I still hadn’t completed this blog!

Finally, Mohanji’s birthday approached. I thought it’s high time now for me to publish the blog. I must publish the blog at least for Mohanji’s birthday. However, that still didn’t happen.

A few days later, after Mohanji’s birthday, I received a mail from Lisa, sharing the experience of her visit to Skanda Vale on Mohanji’s birthday. When I read her story, I froze. I was dumbstruck after I read what she experienced at the Skanda Temple in Skanda Vale, on Mohanji’s birthday. Following is an excerpt from her blog which is published in Mohanji Chronicles blog site.

“Suddenly, as I looked at Muruga, I felt as if I was not there in my body, and felt Mahavatar Babaji’s presence.”

Lord Muruga, Mahavatar Babaji, and Mohanji – all as one! Here is one more devotee realising this truth and conveying her experience completely independent of the realisation that I had.

Mohanji with peacock

I realised that the Divine was bringing clarity to me about the truth of Mohanji’s incarnation – the one form beyond all forms! Whether I realise Him as  Mahavatar Babaji or Lord Muruga or Lord Dattatreya, ‘Being Shiva’ is His eternal truth. With this revelation, Mohanji taught me once again why I need not run behind any form, any incarnation.

Mohanji is the door for me, Mohanji is the path for me and Mohanji is the destination for me. In this life, my Lord Jagannath brought Mohanji to me and then he merged into Mohanji.

Before that, I had no knowledge of anyone else. After that, I have no knowledge of anyone else.

Everyone is just one and the only one for me – Mohanji! Simple and straight, ‘ageless’.

That is why I can see Him in every other Master or God and  I can see all Masters and Gods in Him. For me, everything is ‘Sarvam Mohan Mayam’ – all manifestations as one and only ‘Mohanji.’.

I would like to end my story with sharing some special moments of my gratitude for my Gurudev, my Mohanji. I remain at His lotus feet as the eternal slave.

An expression of my devotion…

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7 – “A Royal Vision”

We begin the next chapter of Mohanji Satcharita, chapter 7, with a story based on a divine vision shared by one devotee to another.

The vision and explanation are quite descriptive and we urge you to read through this to experience this royal vision!

A Royal Vision

Written by Subhasree

On the 29th of March 2019, a follower of Mohanji (name withheld on personal request) from one of the Gulf countries, sent the following message to me. This is the period when Mohanji was busy serving the Shiva bhaktas as part of Ugadi Seva in Kurnool.

A Royal Vision_Mohanji with the Shiva Bhaktas

This testimonial is of a vision that the person had, while being in a meditative state. Reading the message, I was shocked. This was not an ordinary vision. Besides the fact that the vision matched the activities that Mohanji was actually performing at that point, the vision revealed the royal truth behind the seemingly ordinary form of Mohanji.

The message was quite clear! If I could witness it, feel it, I am sure all of you could feel it too. So here you go. Below are the exact words that I received in the description.

“This morning I had a clear vision. I saw Mohanji with a great glow coming from Him, massaging the legs of Bhagawan Shankar (Lord Shiva). I was quite intrigued with this vision. The vision was very clear. I saw that He was wearing saffron clothes. There were many people around Him and all looked like aliens. Mohanji was sitting on the floor, but had the airs of a king, perhaps an emperor. I thought that perhaps I am given to witness a past life of Mohanji because I know that Mohanji has lived a few lives as a royal and it shows even in this life in His attitude. He has royalty in Him. What was strange was that, alien like people were asking something and Mohanji was removing whatever clothes He was wearing or they were removing His clothes from Him and Mohanji never cared. Finally Mohanji gave away all His clothes. He was still occupied with massaging the legs of Lord Shiva in a bliss state. 

Later, I came to know that Mohanji was at Ugadi Seva and was massaging the feet of the pilgrims. Unlike on other days, on this particular day, as soon as He came to the venue, He went straight for massaging the feet of pilgrims instead of going to His room.

Perhaps sitting so far away, I was given the true vision of what actually happened. Hence, I wanted to share. Apologies if all this is in my fertile imagination. Do forgive me.”

I am sure, everyone who has seen the photos and videos of Mohanji from Ugadi Seva, can understand the reality of the expression of this vision. This surely is not ordinary imagination. Someone sitting thousands of miles away, getting the vision of what was actually happening, unfolds the real truth beyond this vision.

So, here is what I understand the truth to be:

A Royal Vision_Mohanji the incarnation of brightness

1. Mohanji is an incarnation of the Supreme Brightness that represents the state of Lord Shiva (brighter than a million Suns).

2. Mohanji massaging the feet of the Shiva bhaktas means the Infinite Brightness is massaging the feet of the finite – respect for each manifestation, as well as recognizing the manifestations as one’s own expression.

3. People asking Him for His clothes indicates that regular people only ask for temporary things, including our temporary existence.

4. Pure Energy has nothing to do with clothes and Mohanji easily gives away all He has, because clothes or for that matter any terrestrial possession means nothing to Him.

5. Mohanji shedding His clothes means leaving a temporary state where clothes represent impermanence.

Sitting in another continent, even further than the person who had this vision, and just by reading this sincere expression, I could feel the power of this truth. This is indeed yet another Guru Leela (divine play of Guru) that allowed me to experience truth with an honest testimonial sharing.

The vision was pure as sunshine, the power of the vision was divine and will brighten the lives of everyone who is able see the truth behind this vision. I am certainly cherishing every bit of it.

Just to clarify, these are my own understandings and interpretations, not Mohanji’s claims. Mohanji has always maintained His simplicity through ‘Mohanji’ as His only identity.

Jai Mohanji.
Subhasree

Truth – From darkness to light with Mohanji

Truth of Darkness to Light With Mohanji _Mohanji Quote

By Lisa Q, UK

“Happenings happen through time and space

Everything is happening through you.

We all happened.

This moment in time is happening.

There is a lot of happenings happening.

This is how the whole play works in the Universe.

We feel we are making decisions but what decisions can we make?

Because choices are very limited between Yes or No.” Mohanji 

This is our beloved Gurudev Mohanji’s teaching and this is exactly what happened on the 23rd of February 2019 on His birthday. I surrender my every word on what happened on His holy birthday at my Gurudev’s feet. With this intense experience, everything changed inside and a new beginning happened. Using ‘I’ or ‘my’ is just to explain all these details, but in reality there is no ‘I’ left anymore.

Truth of Darkness to Light With Mohanji _Lisa
In Your light Mohanji, there is no more existence of “I”

 Since Mohanji happened to me, almost every single moment, every single day is a miracle. A lot of shifting happened, severe blockages were removed through healing, unconditional love happened, acceptance happened, realisations happened, but also negativity happened, which I constantly kept ignoring within me. A huge amount of ego happened inside me with lots of expectations, but finally Mohanji’s unconditional love and light showed me the way so smoothly and gave me lessons from within. There is nothing higher than unconditional love and nobody could be more important than the Guru, because Guru is Parabrahma.

 Supreme Consciousness is truth and purity.  The more we are able to surrender completely to that Consciousness, the more we will be free from all darkness. And indeed without Guru, we will not be able to cross this huge ocean of life. With Guru’s blessings everything is possible, it doesn’t matter how impossible it may seem. Without His blessings nothing is possible, it doesn’t matter how small we think something is, at least, not for me. I bow down at your lotus feet Gurudev Mohanji, because without your support and unconditional acceptance, I would not have been able to realize that how many things may look very simple, but in reality they could be a huge trap of the mind.

Truth of Darkness to Light With Mohanji _ALtar

 So, let’s start-up,

On Mohanji’s birthday I had planned to go to Subha didi’s place to join the UK team to celebrate His birthday. I had even planned which dress I was going to wear and which song I would be singing. But again, which decisions can we make? Divine plan was different for me and I was totally unaware what was going to happen, my inner transformation through the following experiences.  

A few days before the birthday, when one of my friends asked me to go to Skanda Vale with her, I happily agreed because Skanda Vale is always very special for me. We wanted to go on the 16th of February, but there was no accommodation available, so she booked us for the 23rd of February. When she called me about the change of dates, without a second thought, I said yes. Later on I realized that it was Mohanji’s birthday on that date and I had completely forgotten. It was too late to say no as the as the accommodation was booked. I was sad but I surrendered and said to Mohanji that may be this was predestined, but it’s ok. It was beyond my imagination that what kind of intense experience I will face within the next few hours.  

I need to mention here that I had been fighting with my inner darkness and felt completely helpless with that energy for a couple of weeks. I mentioned this to Mohanji and He said,

“Everything will be fine. Do not worry and I am with you.”

But when we are drowning in the dark energy field, most of the time mind/ego becomes so big that we cannot even recognise that. That is exactly what happened with me. I was restless but kept asking for help and stayed connected to Mohanji, as I knew when He said everything will be fine, it will be. Each word from Mohanji is so powerful and I had complete faith that it doesn’t matter how much darkness I feel inside me at this moment, my Gurudev will never fail me.

 On the 23rd of February,

We went to Skanda Vale, though I was very confused with many of fears and anxieties. What will happen if an accident occurs along the long drive, would it be very cold there, we have a small baby to carry with us (only 4 months), would this trip be successful etc. As these kinds of thoughts came across my mind, I wanted to call my friend to cancel the trip, but I surrendered my fears to Mohanji and prayed, waiting for His guidance. On the 22nd, I got confirmation telepathically that I should go ahead with the trip and it was a big relief for me. I asked my friend if we should buy a cake for Mohanji’s birthday so that we could offer it at the temple, but she said she will bake a blueberry cake and I agreed.

 We reached Skanda Vale so smoothly and safely, without a single hassle. When we reached there, first I said, “Thank you Mohanji for making this journey so smooth, but now we want to offer your birthday cake to Maha Shakti and Lord Dattatreya. Please help us.” We went to the Shakti temple for the evening puja and I mentioned to one of the monks there, “Today is Mohanji’s birthday, we have brought some cake and would like to offer it to Maha Shakti and Lord Dattatreya.” He was very happy and agreed to do so. It was fully packed with so many people that evening and when the Maha Abhishekam started, there was bhajans as usual. While singing, they took some cake and mixed with the other prasad and distributed to everyone. I felt so very happy and gave thanks to Mohanji and Maha Shakti for fulfilling my wish. Then a monk came to me and asked if I could cut the cake and give a big piece so that they could offer it to Lord Dattatreya. I felt so shy and requested him to cut the cake, but he insisted that I should. So I did and even blew out a birthday candle as if it was my birthday cake. I gave him a big piece of cake and it was offered to Lord Dattatreya.

My wishes were fulfilled and I was very excited about it, but somewhere inside my mind I was not completely happy. Afterwards, we returned back to our cottage and slept.

 On the 24th of February,

I had no plans for the day after Mohanji’s birthday, but I was not happy inside. We couldn’t attend the Shakti puja in the early morning, but went for the Ranganatha temple puja later on. I sat in front of Lord Vishnu and as the puja started, closed my eyes. Inside my heart, I was screaming with so many questions…. Why is my Gurudev physically away from me, why do I not have the qualities to stay with Him physically, why am I so helpless….. There were lots of “Why,” and I cried a lot. Then we went to the Dattatreya temple and I felt Mohanji‘s physical presence there. Suddenly I was happy and shared with my friend that this was the place we were together with Mohanji when He did Lord Dattatreya’s Pranaprathishta and how magical that day was. It seemed impossible for me to join that auspicious day with Mohanji, but He made the impossible possible in an amazing way.

 After the Ranganatha puja we came back and waited for the Muruga puja to start. My head felt very heavy, as if I was drunk. At 1.30pm, the Muruga puja started and as we started chanting mantras, I started to feel very hot despite the cold weather. When the congregation started singing, I started singing very loudly and dancing. I started shaking, there was a burning sensation in my spine and I started sweating. Suddenly, as I looked at Muruga, I felt as if I was not there in my body, and felt Mahavatar Babaji’s presence. Although I didn’t see anything specific, I just felt his presence. Then I heard the voice of Guru Subramaniam saying, “Come to me and sit in front of me. Play Kaali Kavacham and Shiva Kavacham and meditate.” As I came back to my body, I felt disorientated and didn’t recognise where I was for a few moments. All of a sudden I felt something leave me and I felt very energetic, even my friend noticed and said that I looked full of energy. I asked her to come with me after lunch so that we could go to Guru Subramaniam’s Samadhi, as this was the first time he had called me.

 We had our lunch and I rushed to go to the Samadhi. We went there and I bowed down, offering my love and respect to him. Then I played the Kaali Kavacham and Shiva Kavacham and meditated.

After a few moments I realised that again I was outside of my body. As I opened my eyes, I saw that I was inside Guru Subramaniam’s Samadhi! I quickly touched my forehead on his feet and saw a bright light in the middle of his heart. I wasn’t sure what to do next, but gradually settled down and said, “Guru, you know everything about me and how powerless I am. I cannot stay with my Gurudev Mohanji nor am I able to serve Him properly. Why am I so powerless?” He started to speak very sternly, but with pure love and said, “You are not powerless, you have the highest power inside you.” I was so amazed to hear this. Then he said, “Why do you think I called you here? I only called you here because of that power which is burning inside your heart and that power is your LOVE for God and your PASSION for God. From now on never say again that you are powerless. With that power you can shake anything, even God too.” He blessed me and said, “Light a lamp on the top of my Samadhi,” and at that moment I returned back to my body. I lit two candles as instructed, chanted the Mohanji Gayatri mantra and made 9 circumambulations around Guru’s Samadhi. I sprinkled my hands, face, hair, chest and navel with the water from Guru’s Samadhi and drank some water from the Shivalingam there.

 By this time it was almost 6pm, so we went to the Shakti temple for the evening puja straight from there. I sat down in the temple and started chanting the Kaali mantra. When I closed my eyes it was as if there was nothing left in this world. The puja started, we did chanting and singing. I was looking at Ma and kept calling her within me, “Ma… Ma… Ma.” After a few moments, an amazing vision formed in front of me. It was really strange, and I have never had this kind of experience ever before. I saw my body slowly starting to expand; it became so very big that when I looked down I saw all the monks and other people looking like little puppets. It felt strange to observe them, as if it was a puppet show and I was watching the small puppets performing a holy play. Then I saw another vision, they were offering me a crown, lots of gold and new clothes. Very beautifully, they were decorating me as a new bride. Then all of a sudden, I was in my body again and when I looked at Ma, she asked me, “Where is the separation?” I said, “Ma, there is no separation between you and me. You are inside my heart and I am inside you. No separation at all Ma.” I felt so joyful and after the puja finished, we came back to our accommodation.

 That same night, Mohanji came in my dream. Actually, this was not a dream; it was another dimension of life. Initially I saw a small monster which slowly became bigger and bigger and finally so huge and it was trying to capture me, but certain divine forces came and destroyed it. After it was killed, I took a shower. After a few moments, I suddenly saw Mohanji sitting at a very special place and asking someone, “Where is Lisa?” I was nearly there and said, “Gurudev, I am here.” He looked at me and smiled. Then I went near and sat down beside Him and Mohanji said, “Tell me, what do you want from me?” I touched His feet and said nothing, and we sat there together for a little while. When I woke up, that feeling was still within me. It was more real than His physical presence. And I felt that everything had changed within me. A huge shift had happened to me with all these confirmations that there is no separation. We are all One Consciousness and that is the TRUTH. Until now, this truth was a theory to me but now I am able to realise what actually Mohanji says about Alignment. All these experiences were so intense and real that nothing can shake my trust in Mohanji anymore.

 The next day was the last day at Skanda Vale and Ma said, “Before you leave, come to me.”  We went and on the way to the Shakti temple, when we were standing in front of Guru’s Samadhi, the candle I had lit was still burning and my happiness had no limits. The burning candle was a symbol of my love for my Gurudev Mohanji!

 We returned to London with the bliss of silence and only I knew how big this experience was for my small logical mind. This whole experience was beyond any imagination, without any expectations and when I shared all this with Gurudev Mohanji, He told me that all these experiences were TRUE and that I must write them down in detail and chew it at leisure as a cow does and digest it with time.

Some experiences should be digested with time.

And I think I will need a long time to digest these huge amount of experiences.

I bow down at your lotus feet Gurudev Mohanji and the entire Guru Mandala for bringing me from Darkness to Light and giving me the realisation about ONENESS.

Truth of Darkness to Light With Mohanji _Lisa getting Shaktipat
At Your feet for ever!

 Jai Mohanji!

 

“The mission of every guide on Earth is to lead a generation and beyond to the light of truth. Truth is very simple – YOU ARE THAT. You are the imperishable, immovable, colourless, formless, self-illuminating, brilliant entity that exists beyond time and space.” — Mohanji

Meeting Mohanji

Meeting Mohanji_ Rakshitha and Ananth with Mohanji

I surrender to my Guru, Shri Mohanji all the words that I pen here and all the thoughts that flow in my mind while I pen these experiences. – Rakshitha Ananth, Australia

Who is Mohanji to me?

To me, Mohanji is Lord Shiva himself; He is all the Masters projecting through a screen called Mohanji. He is my Mt. Kailash. He is my Father and Mother. He is the only person I have an eternal relationship with all through my existence and pre-existence. He is my Guru. He is my all, my everything.

My longing for finding my Guru

I am amazed by the way the Guru Parampara moulded me all these years through various God forms. From childhood, my favourite God has been Lord Hanuman. I love the purity in him. My mom used to do ‘Sundara Kaandam’ parayanam (recitation) when I was a kid. I used to wake up with her, sleep on her lap as she read the book loudly for my grandmother to hear. I developed great respect for Lord Hanuman and he is the first God I go to for anything and everything. During the course of life, my childhood took sudden, dramatic turns and I lost complete faith in God or rather life itself. I became an atheist, falling entirely on psychology, science etc.

Six years later, my life saw a series of sudden and unexpected changes. At that point in time, I had no job, no place to stay, no food to eat, my life seemed to have come to a complete stop. My mom advised me to visit the Mylapore (Chennai) Shirdi Sai temple, which I did, after a lot of procrastination and contemplation. At that point, I didn’t even know who Sai Baba was. The moment I went into the temple and saw Baba’s murthy (statue), tears started flowing uncontrollably. I think I almost cried for 15-20 minutes just looking at him. I didn’t ask for anything but prayed to him to give me strength to face whatever happens. When I came out of the temple, I got a call from Hewlett Packard (HP) confirming that my interview had been successful and they were happy to offer employment.

Life took a 360 degree turn from then on. I googled a little about Baba and was so happy to know that he was a saint who lived 60-80 years before I was born. The happiness came out of knowing that Baba does not belong to some unknown mythology but lived in North India just few decades before me as a real human being, living a human life in flesh and blood. My visits to his temple strengthened my faith in him and I got the answers from him when I needed them most. I was able to feel his invisible hands guiding me all the time.

Two years later, when my ego was at its peak with a high paying job, a house that I bought with a loan, and a decently settled life, I met with a very small accident that brought me back to reality. Three ligaments in my right knee was completely damaged and had to be reconstructed, making me bed-ridden for almost 45 days. I then realized the value of people in life and I realized how much my ego had inflated. I utilized this time to read the Satcharita of Shirdi Baba. One year later, I lost my job in recession, which got me completely on to my knees and grounded.

All my job searches ended in vain. Eight months of insecurity, piling up loans, ripped open my ego and I had to be dependent on someone for necessities. It was indeed a roller coaster ride. My thirst for knowledge made me go in search of my roots – being born and raised as a Hindu-Brahmin, I had this innate thirst to know the beyond, as I thought it would serve as an answer to the life of twists and turns that I had to face. Baba’s Satcharita always recommends one to read the Bhagavad Gita. I utilized the eight months of break and I got myself an audio book of Mahabharatha and Bhagavad Gita.

That was the best investment I made in my life. I got so much clarity and that was the first time I started practicing acceptance. Though I questioned a lot, I was slowly getting into accepting what was given to me; I started aspiring for more knowledge on karma, death and after life. Every time I was ready, Baba gave me another spoonful to chew. In parallel, I got placed in a job for which I attended interviews a year ago. Though a lesser salary in comparison to the previous, I was able to appreciate a job that landed on its own after eight months of being jobless.

My search and questions about life, death, life after death etc. continued and I stumbled on Osho’s teachings, through which Baba answered many of my doubts, questions etc. As I didn’t have any favorite Gods, and as Baba was not in his physical body, I was able to appreciate the answers that came through different means, like the Internet, books, etc. Every time I read the Satcharita, my heart would long for the physical presence of Baba. I longed to be near Baba, at least as part of the soil under his feet. I longed to be able to serve him, be with him etc. This longing transformed to such an extent that I started asking Baba to now give me a chance to serve a living Guru – in his physical form. My prayers had always been this, “To meet an authentic Guru and to be able to serve him when he is in his physical body. To be associated with him and serve the world as his instrument.”

Like Osho says,

“When a disciple is ready, the Master appears.”

How I got to know Mohanji?

I resorted to making myself ready and waiting and not search on my own for a Master, as I believed that Baba would bring a living Master to me when I was most eligible for it. Above all, Shirdi Baba has been my highest Guru and God himself, just that I missed seeing him in his physical form – in flesh and blood. Somewhere from 2012/2013 onwards, every time my longing to serve a physical Guru intensified, I would somehow land up reading Mohanji’s blog. His words break concepts, keeps me grounded and cuts through the ego like a sharp knife. Since I am used to Osho’s direct way of communication, Mohanji’s words made more sense to me, though it was sharp.

The one particular blog about Naga Loka gave me a hint that I am always being guided by the NATH tradition.

Mohanji speaks about how Shirdi Sai Baba belongs to this tradition.

He also adds that the disciple never questions “Why” to his Guru and simply accepts. I stopped asking why since that day to Shirdi Sai Baba and accepted everything as his will.

Like this, many a time, I would land in Mohanji’s blog, but I never felt serious about HIM being my living Guru etc. At some point, I connected to Him through Facebook, ‘Para Brahma’ and after few months disconnected from Him, as I learnt (stupidity/lack of faith/ test for a disciple) that Google Adwords can play up by bringing the relevant pages that we read earlier. Again after a few months, I found myself landing on Mohanji’s blog when my prayers intensified to Baba to show me an authentic living Guru. I went through Devi’s blogs of living with a Master and something struck a chord in me. My heart said I have found a living Guru, but my logical, ever questioning, ever skeptical mind failed to accept Him. I read the same words in one of Mohanji’s blogs,

“When a disciple is ready, the Master appears,”

which confirmed to me that He is my living Guru.

My First Meeting With Mohanji

I never made an attempt to contact Mohanji or speak to Him. But within myself, I accepted Him as my Guru and told myself that when I am eligible, I would get to meet Him. Until then, I would silently follow the messages from my Master and work within me to make myself an eligible disciple. I left it to the Master/ Baba to decide what happens after that. My only goal was acceptance of whatever that may happen and not ask, “Why?”

In 2015, during my husband’s past life regression sessions, he got a message to meet Mohanji. At that time, all my husband knew was that Mohanji is my Guru. He wasn’t interested in any spiritual gyan as he would call it and every time I would share some good messages or blogs, he would say “Please keep your philosophy with yourself.” I hated that I was unable to share anything with him, but still live with him. However I accepted this as I understood that this life was a choice I made, fully knowing what I am getting into. Acceptance gave me so much peace and at times made me laugh at my choices, thinking to myself, “What was I thinking when I made this choice?”

Like Mohanji says,

“when life throws tantrums at you, the best reaction you can have is laughter.”

Meanwhile, in November 2015, when I was so scared about my license test after one failure, Mohanji came in my dream on the day of the test, put his hand on my head and blessed me. I passed the test that day.

In December 2015, my husband had made plans for a surprise meeting in Bangalore with Mohanji which I wasn’t aware of until the night before. When I got to know of it, I couldn’t sleep. I had mixed emotions, in terms of what would I say when meeting Him, how would He react, what questions would I ask, will He acknowledge me as His disciple, how would my husband react, too  many things. My mind was constantly chattering. At one point almost early in the morning, I surrendered everything and just slept for the remaining few hours. In the morning on the way to meeting Him, I was so excited that I didn’t speak a word, but just sat smiling all the way.

Meeting Mohanji with Rakshitha Ananth

We entered the house where He was and quietly waited for Him. He came out from an inside room and walked towards us. One glance at Him and I poured. I melted. I cried for a few minutes, have no idea until now why I cried so much.

Mohanji looked at me, smiled at me and said,

“You have been waiting for this meeting for life times.”

It made me cry more, an instant recognition of my longing. Then we had an opportunity to eat breakfast with Him. I couldn’t speak in front of Him. I felt like I could spend the rest of my life just looking at Him. On the contrary, my husband was pouring out with questions and Mohanji answered all of them with utmost patience.

He gave us Shaktipat that day.

Meeting Mohanji _ Mohanji giving Shaktipat to Rakshitha
Shaktipat that clears blockages of lifetimes!

The best one hour of my life was spent in the presence of my Guru.

When we were about to leave, He gave His eye card and a couple of toffees. My mind playfully compared the number of toffees to the number that my husband received. Silly me! Mohanji immediately gave me a couple of toffees more and smiled. I will not forget that incident. A great learning to keep the mind in control in front of a Master, else He is reading it all.

We left with a feeling that this was just the beginning.

Meeting Mohanji _ Rakshitha with Mohanji
The begining of the journey – finally with my Guru!

Koti Koti pranams at His lotus feet where I belong.

 

Meeting Mohanji _ The lotus Feet
The Lotus Feet, where my existence belongs!

Jai Mohanji!
