My destiny with Mohanji – Part 1

Aditya Nagpal, India

How it started

Before meeting Mohanji in December 2013, I felt as if nothing was in place. I did not have a job, had relationship problems, and had bad habits. However, I was attending the Power of Purity meditation regularly in Bangalore. That gave me reasonable peace of mind in difficult times.

Soon, Preeti Duggal invited me to meet Mohanji at her place for meditation and satsang. When we opened our eyes after the meditation, we saw Mohanji sitting right in front of us. This was the first time I saw Mohanji. There was something different there, something I had never felt before. 

Being unfamiliar with spiritual words at that time, the only thing I remember from the satsang was that Mohanji looked into my eyes for a brief moment. I will never forget that eye connection. The shift started happening there. I did not realize it then, but now I fully acknowledge and know what he did when I look back. That was the initiation I received, and I am eternally grateful to him for that. After the satsang, we all received Shaktipat from Mohanji.

I wanted to share certain personal things with him and was called to his room after the satsang. I sat looking at Mohanji, and I could not express what I wanted to share. I was extremely low in self-confidence and was afraid to talk to anyone. There was so much going on inside me, but I just could not say anything. But omniscient Mohanji knew what was going on. He told me to start doing some seva and meet him again after a year and tell him what transformation has happened. I followed it. 

During the early years (2014/2015), I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with Mohanji. I got Shaktipat from him many times. After some time, I started seeing changes in myself. My awareness about myself began growing, and I became aware of my habits and eventually gave them up without forcing anything. I started loving Mohanji and his teachings. I had found a path for myself. I was not very deeply connected to him (at consciousness level) at that time, but I had accepted him as my Guru and started to follow him fully. After a few months, I started seeing a huge change in my confidence and behaviour.  

Getting a job and moving to Hyderabad

I did not have a job for almost two years. I had lost hope. But after I started practising Mohanji’s meditations and after meeting him, I realized that there was nothing wrong outside, but the blockage was within me. All the negativity was sitting inside me. I was pessimistic, and Mohanji changed this. He eradicated my negativity, and it changed things for me externally as well. I became positive; I was not depressed anymore; I felt happy vibes most of the time without any reason. I gained confidence and got the job very soon after that. It was I who had blocked it. 

I settled quite well in the job in Hyderabad. Soon I was ready to conduct Meditations as suggested by Mohanji. But things took a dramatic turn, and my company crashed, and I was laid off. This was disastrous for me. I did not know how to react to this. But at that time, Mohanji already had an impact on me, and instead of crying over spilt milk, I accepted it and started looking for another job. 

It was a difficult time, but I felt Mohanji’s presence with me all the time. I often saw him standing in front of me and heard him saying, “Don’t worry! You have to live in Hyderabad for long. You will establish my base there.” These words came true eventually. 

I got another job within 10 days. I worked in this company for almost 3 years. I started Ammucare seva work in Hyderabad, and with his grace, new people started joining. My confidence grew immensely, and I also conducted yoga sessions in my company. This was a big transformation for someone who was afraid to talk to anyone. 

Test of faith

All was going great until a distraction happened. A known person whom I had met in Bangalore spoke ill of Mohanji. He had some bad experiences and blamed Mohanji for them. I became extremely angry as I loved Mohanji and never thought anyone could talk like this about him. When I met Mohanji in Bangalore, he asked me to ignore this. That meeting somewhat settled me down, but some distraction was sitting inside me. 

Another time somewhere in the middle of 2017, I had another experience that kind of distracted me. I went into a relationship and was swayed by it. I became emotional and was unable to connect to Mohanji and do his meditations. During one of my meetings with Mohanji in Bangalore, I told him that I was distracted and unable to meditate and connect to him. I did not tell him what exactly was happening with me, but he knew it and brought it up in our conversation. He said, “No, you are not distracted, I am always with you, and you are progressing.”

Then he told me to put a poster in my room and write ‘Body, Mind, Intellect, Ego and Soul’ on it and see how much I was connecting to my soul each day. He said no need to try and connect with me; just watch this daily. I followed it. I started watching it daily and contemplating on it, and it worked for me big time. I could clearly observe myself going through various emotions in my relationship. This helped me remain stable during that phase; I continued seva in Hyderabad. During this period, I was a little distracted, and even though I was following Mohanji with full dedication, I was unable to connect to him fully.

Turning vegan

After following Mohanji, I became a vegetarian in the early months. With his techniques, I became more aware of myself and could see the connection between food and my emotions, which turned me into a vegetarian. In 2018, as I continued practicing his techniques, I started to have the same feelings about milk products. I realized that whenever I ate something that had violence in it, it had a negative impact on me. This turned me into a complete vegan.

Sai and Mohanji

During the period when I was unable to connect to Mohanji fully, I got deeply connected to Sai Baba. It can’t be a coincidence that my first visit to a Sai Baba temple was with Mohanji in Bangalore. Soon I became a frequent visitor to Shirdi, and I loved that place and its energy. Every visit to Shirdi gave me something. 

I also started doing Ammucare seva in Shirdi. I was connecting deeply to Sai, which was extremely transformative for me. I had some wonderful experiences in Shirdi. I also used to follow Mohanji with full dedication, but there was some barrier to the physical form. Maybe I was not completely ready for a living Master. 

On one of my visits to Shirdi when Mohanji was there, I thought I would miss the chance to meet Mohanji. But his plan was different. In the evening, after having some snacks in a café, I started walking towards the main Sai temple, and suddenly I heard a strong voice. It was something like ‘Meet Mohanji tomorrow and then leave’. This was so strong that I cancelled my bus trip immediately and stayed back to meet Mohanji. The next day, I had a short but wonderful meeting with Mohanji. 

During our conversation, Mohanji asked me, “What did Baba say to you?” I replied impulsively, “Baba told me to meet you.” He laughed at it. After this meeting, I started seeing and feeling some kind of oneness between Sai and Mohanji. It was something like after every visit to Shirdi, and after worshipping Baba, my connection with Mohanji would become stronger. It was as if Baba was pushing me towards Mohanji. Baba was telling me that Mohanji is your Master; go to him. I still had some physical barriers in my mind. But one thing I was sure about, my connection with Mohanji was becoming stronger.

Lessons living with Mohanji – Days 155 & 156

Day 155 – Give flowers today

Yesterday had a surprise ending to the day. When travelling with Mohanji, there’s always an element of the unexpected. Once you think you’re settling into some comfort zone, it’s quickly changed.

Yesterday, Devi was conducting a meditation for some of the local people here in Slovenia. They’d been meeting regularly for some weeks at a small yoga studio in the town of Lenart. The group was growing each week. Yesterday Mohanji called me and said that he’d like to go to the meditation. He would join the group after the meditation was over. 

We went to the hall where a small group of around 10 to 12 people had gathered. Mohanji spoke in satsang, probably for over an hour or two, on various topics – fears and general aspects of life. Some people had gone for meditation for the first time. I don’t know if they’d only gone to meditation for the first time or the Power of Purity meditation for the first time. They didn’t even know who Mohanji was until that day.

I thought to myself, “What a real blessing it was for those people that probably don’t even know what they were able to experience there, the level of closeness and intimacy at that satsang. “One of the topics he spoke on yesterday was an excellent reminder for me, and I wanted to share this today. 

It’s something which, in business and activity, I can regularly miss, or I can forget to remember. This was about relationships – with our closest, our nearest and dearest, with those people we’re most connected to in our life. For me, these can be the sources of happiness and/or frustrations and disappointments. Nevertheless, close relationships and genuine relationships are very important.

One lady in the Satsang asked questions about fear – one of the things that she feared was what would happen to her family, what could happen to them and how to help. He simply said, “All we need to do in that situation (and I think this applies to any relationship) is to simply love them, and appreciate them in our life, now while we can.” Very simple words. 

He said that usually, it’s funny that when a person is alive, we don’t really show them anything. Normally, they’ll pay attention, or there might be some types of interaction, which might not be so pleasant, but as soon as they pass on, as soon as they’re gone, we are sad, upset and miss them. Then often, we even begin to take flowers to their grave once they’ve passed.

He said that he’d much rather give flowers now while they’re alive. “Give flowers in the form of your appreciation, love, kindness, support, recognition; all the colours and varieties of richness that can enhance our life, just through the act of giving.” In return, we also get that back. This was a good reminder of a lesson that has been shared many times, but I still forget from time to time. 

Day 156 – The past is gone 

Living and working closely with Mohanji, constant movement is dynamic, and time is well used. We’re here now in Slovenia, and Mohanji has initiated new activities in India – two major projects coming out very soon. Teams are already working hard to bring them to reality.

Yesterday, I was contemplating that Mohanji neither speaks about past troubles nor does he dwell on past mistakes. It’s simply not talked about. It’s always about what we can do today and now. A good reminder for me to leave the past in the past.

Before meeting Mohanji, there were several mistakes, regrets, and guilt which I carried from certain situations in life. Even though life was moving forward and I was exploring new ideas, new ways of being, new opportunities, and going to different places, part of my mind was still stuck with past events. This became a real burden and would often stop me from enjoying this moment. Unnecessarily carrying weight, not forgiving people and more detrimentally, not forgiving myself for those situations.

We have many practices available for this. The Power Purity is an excellent meditation for unhooking from these things. Still, I think it’s a good lesson to remember: there’s always movement, we’re always moving forward, and the past is finished. It’s gone, and there’s no need to carry the weight or burden from everything that’s happened before.

Each day can be a new fresh day if we allow it.

Lessons living with Mohanji – Days 153 & 154

Day 153 – Making sure activities are with purpose 

As we’re here in Slovenia, we’re looking at everything that we can do to move the activities on the land and on the ground forward. I visited the land for the first time, and we were conducting the fruit tree plantation. It was really fun to go there to see the land, the whole area, and what space we have. 

We have the forest, the stream at the bottom, the place where we’ll have a pond looking out across all of the surrounding nature, all beautiful. It’s been snowing here, and it’s been pretty cold, so we wanted to go back and check on the trees, make sure that they are okay and also walk the boundaries again so that we can make sure that we’ve got our space clear and we can begin the work. 

Today I share a lesson which has come from discussions with Mohanji about these activities. That is: making sure that there’s always purposefulness to an activity, that we’re always looking to reach the end goal or the outcome in everything we do related to a specific activity, so that we’re very clear about what we want to get and nothing is vague, nothing is confused, or nothing’s lost. That brings efficiency, and that time is used well. 

It’s exciting for me to think that soon, there’ll be a space where all of us can come. For example, the land here is large, with clean air. There’ll be the forest, which will have all the rishis and the munies like sages Agastya and Lopamudra. There’ll be the lake with all the beings of the water, turtles and fish. There will probably be some decking down there at the bottom because it catches the sun in the afternoon. Maybe there’s some space for outdoor yoga or meditation. It could maybe even be a little refreshment place down there at the bottom of the land. 

Then, across the stream, when you look across the flatland, which could even have accommodations, small chalets or yurts, or something like this. The main Center will be at the top of the land, where all the meditations, yoga and canteen will be. Because it’s a unique shape, with sloping land, all the banks could be landscaped really well and uniquely with caves there as well; a place of real peace. 

As it’s Covid times, it is a little more challenging to do everything we’d like to do, but we are still moving something along. Today in the morning, I spoke about the plan for the next few days. That’s when Mohanji reminded me that, now especially, we always need to be purposeful with everything that we’re doing because we haven’t got the luxury of time. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring. If we’re doing something, let’s make sure we’re doing it with purpose, so it cannot be loose, and we cannot take time for granted because we don’t know what’s coming. He really stressed this. 

I thought that this was a good lesson to share today for bringing efficiency and effectiveness to our activities. There were three things which he spoke about for this. The first was responsibility. That’s somebody who takes on a job, is entrusted with the task, and says they’re going to do it. Finding that person and ensuring that they understand what they need to do and what they will achieve. 

The second is accountability. When someone’s taking on the job, they must also take on the accountability to see it right through to the end, to ensure that it is completed. The third was always a definitive timeline. This is the difference between people saying, “Yes, sure, I can do this,” and saying, “Yeah, sure, I can do this, and I’ll finish it by this date.” That’s very important because even if the date is some time out in the future, if they’ve given it, then at least it can be supervised at that point in time. 

That accountability within the activities and tasks is really important. Because if someone has taken on a job, but then it has not been completed or finished, or perhaps not coming with a timeline means that things become loose. The activity doesn’t happen as it should have or planned, which can create inefficiencies because you have to go back and you have to check whether things are being done well. 

In summary, making sure there is responsibility – someone is taking the role. Accountability – seeing it through to the end. Lastly, putting on a timeline of when something will be done by.

I’ve spoken about these things in previous messages, but now in the context of moving forward with our activities here at the land in Slovenia, I thought it’s good to share how we’re approaching it and most especially since we’re working with limited time. 

Have a great day ahead.

Day 154 – Overthinking suffocates action 

Yesterday we visited the land in Slovenia, which, as I’ve mentioned before, is really stunning. It was a beautiful, sunny day, very crisp, a little bit cold, but a perfect day to walk around the boundaries and check, to look at the trees we planted, which all are still flourishing, which is fantastic. I look forward to the day when we can all come together there, when we can meet there, and people will be staying, the structures will be in place, and it will be a real place of peace, ‘Shanti’.

I was thinking about Mohanji’s approach to activities, not only how he’s very effective in creating an initiative, an idea, but then also in executing them or putting them into action. This is one area in which I’ve really learned a lot. Sometimes previously, I could become very stuck in the paralysis of over-analysis, over-thinking about an idea or an approach before actually taking a step to do something. To implement something, I’d like to have the full information, all the small details, everything in place, and everything considered before taking steps. Making sure that everything was looked at. But what happened then is that I felt burdened because I’d have all of these ideas but no tangible output for them. I wouldn’t feel good. That would be a hit to self-esteem, which would take some time to rebuild.

I was always thinking I could do that, but then there was no implementation of something, and as Mohanji said before, which was really useful for me, is that a person who has a very, very, very small bit of knowledge, but can execute it well, is more effective for the world, because they’re doing more for the world than someone who has the all world’s knowledge in their head, but then can’t do anything about it and just regurgitate. This was an interesting outlook for me and so learning from Mohanji, I’ve pushed myself, or not pushed, but encouraged myself to change this approach and follow his lead.

The key here lesson for me is that when you think too much about something, action won’t happen. I think that this is an optimum time for thinking, for considering everything now, to assess the whole picture, to make sure that you’ve got good enough of an understanding and then quickly move into action. Otherwise, the thinking was a trap which I used to fall into.

I felt like something was happening, but in reality, it wasn’t. It was just a mental activity. When I observe Mohanji, he’s very quick into action. He thinks, and then, “Okay, let’s do this”. Then the action happens. It’s where the dynamics come from for the office. He doesn’t sit and think and think and think about things. He just does enough. Thinking about me, one mistake I can make is thinking and then going into the micro details about everything and in the end, nothing happens.

What’s more effective, because when an action happens, it benefits people, is to think, get the picture, give it due consideration and then, when needed, make changes and put it into action, but quickly. This also brings a good feeling of accomplishment, and then we can move on to the next task.

Hope you have a great day ahead.

Skanda Vale and London – Part 2

In the first part of the testimonial, I wrote about Mohanji, catching the plane to Manchester just in time, the suitcase miracle and the amazing Protection Ring story. 

After the delicious meal at the Mexican restaurant, we continued our journey to Skanda Vale through the beautiful rolling countryside of Wales, which was a treat in itself, and we could not tell Rahul, who had graciously consented to drive us, how grateful we were. Fortunately for him, it was like a vacation trip. Just a day away from two busy kids. A win-win situation. I like that.

Arriving in Skanda Vale felt like coming home. At home with dedicated people with a beautiful frequency and at home in nature: a world without Wi-Fi. Although it took some getting used to, it was precisely this freedom from radiation, emailing, and apps that proved to calm my overheated mind. 

The wooden cabin with the bunk bed where I would sleep turned out to be very basic indeed. And quite dark with a small window. The toilet was further down the road in a detached building, and the showers were a little further still. But I was grateful that I had a place to stay, and I was used to some sobriety in terms of sleeping in an ashram. However, I did have a young and flexible body back then. 

Selma had really provided everything I could have wished for: a warm comforter, sheets, towels and even a warm, woolen vest and socks because she knew that could be needed in Skanda Vale. I felt blessed. Vijay and Brother Andy seemed much more bothered by the fact that I didn’t have a luxurious room than I was. I reassured them. After all, I had known about it from the beginning and was not forced to say yes to it by anyone. They wouldn’t hear me whining. 

Fifteen minutes later, Brother Andy came walking up to us happy. Someone had just cancelled, and I was immediately given the key to a beautiful room with a bathroom and a sweeping view of the valley! The building was called Saraswati, which is the equivalent of my Indian Swami-given name Bharati. Everyone was elated, including me, because everything felt so predestined and welcome. And my cold problem was solved because there was heating and the bed proved to be good support for my osteoarthritic shoulders. I slept wonderfully there. 

We slipped seamlessly into the ashram routine, from puja to abhishekam, from Murugan temple to Shakti temple to Vishnu temple. A Shirdi temple was still under construction. We were scheduled for four hours of seva each day that consisted of helping serve and clear food, cleaning, and cutting vegetables; fortunately, these were the only chores that we were capable of, as Nico and I had some disabilities. The heavier work in the gardens or around the Samadhi of Swami Subramaniam was done by fitter and more muscular residents and visitors. 

What dedication among the resident Brothers and Sisters! There was a quiet mood of devotion, seriousness, humor and work ethic. Nothing was too much for the Swamis and Sisters. ‘We just do the work in front of us, and we don’t think beyond that.’ Unceasingly one saw them working in many different places in the ashram. Then again in jeans, then in a sober brown habit or in dark blue rain pants. Rain or shine, the open-air pujas also continue throughout the year with a little bit of adjustment. A high energy frequency is built up and radiates from the area… one would almost wonder why there is still darkness left in the world. 

On Wednesday, Mohanji participated in the Vishnu puja. An elaborate puja for the large statue of Vishnu, who lies on a huge snake surrounded by water. We were seated under a canopy, but the statue of Vishnu was in the open with only the sky as a roof. 

After the puja, all attendees walked to the statue of Dattatreya, situated next to the Vishnu temple. Mohanji would partake in the arathi ceremony and waited quietly for his turn, with his hands in a namaste gesture in front of his chest. He bowed reverently to the statue, and I saw that he was making the same gesture – very subtly – to a small bird that was searching for food under the bush behind the statue, watching curiously as to what was going on. 

The deity had been placed in the open, embraced by the trees and the birds. I looked intensely from Mohanji to the statue and thought of the morning when I had inwardly asked him: who are you? At the time, I had known him only for a few days and knew virtually nothing about him. He answered immediately and unexpectedly, “I am Dattatreya.” I had heard the name dropped but hardly knew who that was and looked it up on the Internet. 

There I found not only all the information about Dattatreya but also the connection with Mohanji and the Tradition. Dattatreya was an incarnation of the trinity from Hinduism: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva – the creating, sustaining and destroying aspects of the universe. I was truly amazed by the magnificence of his state and since then have not seen him as my big, wise brother as I had initially, but as all-encompassing. In everything and beyond everything. The totality. 

While looking at the deity, the thought occurred to me that Mohanji – as soon as he finished the arathi and came down the steps, would look directly at me and at no one else. There were many of us standing. But he would say something to me. It didn’t matter what. It wasn’t just mind-matter, and it had nothing to do with me. It was a kind of knowing. It would be a confirmation of the inner statement that he was Dattatreya. 

In that high-energy bubble, I followed the puja. Mohanji always confirms one’s state. If it had been only the mind, there would have been some doubt. But there was none. Mohanji walked down the little stairs after the arathi, carefully watching where he walked. At the bottom of the steps, he looked up and straight into my eyes. His gaze confirmed what I had already felt. He and Datta are one consciousness, one state of being. 

He then said, “Nice sari,” which seems like a nonsensical comment in this context. But it was another confirmation. A double one, even. The sari I was wearing I had picked out and put on with love that morning. It had been given to me by Swami Gopal Baba. My Master who had passed away in 2020. An Avadhoota from the same Tradition as Mohanji. Swami loved saris, and when I wore this same color (white, with orange borders) for the first time in his presence during an interview, Swami made almost the same comment. 

Even then, I had lovingly put on the sari for him five minutes before the interview because I knew he appreciated it. And maybe you know how difficult it is to put on a sari, but in those few minutes, I had managed to go up and down three flights of stairs and wrap the sari elegantly around myself. Mohanji confirmed his oneness with Swami, the Tradition and Dattatreya with a penetrating look and two simple words: “Nice sari.” In the same manner, Swami Gopal Baba had always spoken, short and sweet. And with the same loving look in his eyes. 

On Thursday morning, I meditated while sitting on the lower part of the bunk bed in my room. In Skanda Vale, my alarm clock went off at 3:33 every morning. Then I had plenty of time for personal grooming, yoga and Kriya before the 5 o’clock Murugan puja began in the temple. Everyone staying at the ashram was expected to attend the daily pujas. Since I was rather groggy, my eyes threatened to close. I heard inside, ‘Don’t fall asleep.’ I asked, ‘How?’ ‘You can stay awake.’ Again I asked, ‘But how? I fall asleep.’ ‘Fall awake!’ was the surprising and original reply. ‘This is Shakti. It is within me.’ 

How unique! Fall awake. Normally we fall asleep. But for me, that often happens with a little jolt when I sit up. Then one is actually startled awake from falling asleep. And often, because of such a small ‘fall’, I am afterwards clearer and more expansive than before. I thought about it often that day and shared it with whoever wanted to hear it: Fall Awake! 

During several moments that week, especially moments with Mohanji, I was overcome by an intense need to fall asleep acutely. You can understand that I seized all those moments to ‘fall in the vastness of being present.’ It was not easy; I have to admit. Fortunately, everything Mohanji said was so catchy that I had a good reason to want to stay awake. 

More than one week later, back in the Netherlands, I understood the real reason for his words. When I go to sleep, I often listen to Mohanji’s mediation while lying in bed, and within minutes I feel safe and relaxed and fall asleep listening. It felt a little like cheating, but I didn’t want to be too hard on myself and allowed myself my divine ‘sleeping pill’. 

But it turned out to be a bad idea, after all. The body had gotten quickly programmed and seemed to express: when I hear Mohanji’s deep resonating voice, I fall asleep! That is exactly what happened during every Q&A during the week in Skanda Vale and London. As soon as I heard Mohanji’s voice, I would start yawning. And I would try to hide it for Mohanji, of course, for the last thing I wanted was to look disinterested. You can imagine that there was no meditative ‘Mohanji sleeping pills’ hereafter!

After the Murugan puja in the temple, I did my Kriya practice at the statue of Dattatreya. I sat there very awkwardly on a wobbly, wooden bench, and my hands and feet got cold. I visualized a warm sun in my solar plexus chakra but to no avail. So I stopped my visualization attempt. As I was about to get up to leave, my hands and feet began to radiate lovely softness and warmth from within. I stayed. And enjoyed it. Normally without an external source of heat – once I was cold – I did not get warm. This was really exceptional. 

In the evening, like on other evenings, we went to the Shakti temple for puja. High up on the mountain, near the enclosure of the three elephants, the bird sanctuary and the horse stable. The temple was full, and fortunately, I was practically sitting in the doorway because I could breathe freely there. The low ceiling and the many visitors made it stuffy. Suddenly I saw Chris, Mohanji’s executive assistant, Tea, the photographer and Subhasree, Mohanji’s personal assistant. Where there is Chris, Tea and Subha, there must be Mohanji! And indeed, I had not seen him coming at all. The mood and the bhav were intense. The energy rose to the ceiling, as did the warmth. 

During the last mantra, we walked forward in a line to pay our respects to Kali (an aspect of Shakti, the Mother Goddess / universal energy). Mohanji is Kali, I thought to myself. So before I bowed to Kali, I looked Mohanji straight in his eyes as I walked past him, bowed to him and chanted the Kali mantra to him. Mohanji looked at me with an intense and piercing gaze and blessed me. Another confirmation of his omnipresence as any form of God. I continued walking towards the altar, glowing with Shakti. 

It wasn’t until the next day that I realized how much more depth this brief event carried. After all, Mohanji’s inner guidance from yesterday morning had been: ‘This is Shakti. It is within me,’ which was a bit of a puzzle for me back then. That is why I had kind of ignored it. Now clarity started dawning. 

The day before we left Skanda Vale ashram, I was lying on my bed and suddenly got overwhelmed by the dread of the possibility that Mohanji could be attacked by dark energy. Or by people’s actions. My creative mind took over quickly. What can we do to protect him? I prayed to Sai for a solution. Mohanji would never stop his mission out of fear. And he wouldn’t ask for anything for himself, either. That only left a possibility for the devotees. Could we not pray for him altogether? Back then, I didn’t realize that my prayer had already been answered by Dirk’s donation of the Protection Ring. I had heard Mohanji talk about the story of the ring while having lunch at the Mexican restaurant, but the word protection had not reached my ears.

Master’s infinite love and kindness!

By Supreet Bedi, Canada

I feel that Baba Sai has to work really hard and long for my spiritual growth. I feel I was in inertia mode, not understanding what Baba was trying to teach me. In short, there was no urgency to reach my purpose, but Baba knew how trapped I was in my patterns and knew I needed a good kick, and he brought me to Mohanji. 

I saw an intense change in my frequency. I have always heard people saying that you burn a lot with a living Master. The very first program (sadhana) that I did with the Mohanji family was a 41-day Power of Purity meditation. I felt something inside me shift. Actually, I tasted ecstasy for the first time in my life. I was happy, purpose-oriented, singing all the time, getting up early, doing spiritual practices, and eager to be useful to the world. This was sheer Guru’s grace. However, it didn’t last very long as I could not maintain it.

I started getting tired and felt fatigued all the time. I was struggling to keep up with my practices. Well, when you are blessed with something so precious, there are bound to be tests to see if you are steady or you run away from your Master in adverse situations. Now, I had reached a point where I felt it was hard to even sit down for half an hour after waking up. 

I had taken medical leave from work and was home for about four months, but the irony was that even after four months of rest, there was no improvement, and the doctor could not figure out what was happening. In between, some cells started showing up in my blood, which was not good and could indicate worrisome blood disorders.

All through whatever was going on, I didn’t complain; this was his grace that I was mentally stable. Mohanji has taught me to be grateful and in complete surrender mode always, no matter what. This was my time to apply that teaching, and I was able to do so with his blessings. Mohanji said, “I will take care. I am with you.” Knowing this, I never worried about the outcome of this unknown illness. I was in total acceptance mode, prepared that he was holding my hand, whatever would happen.

Mohanji has been very, very kind to me. I work in the medical field, and I love my job. Keeping my physical limitations in mind, I started with part-time, working alternative days. Some of my blood work did show some autoimmune activity, but it was not that prominent to blame the autoimmune condition for my extreme fatigue. An autoimmune condition is when your own body cells start recognizing your organs as a foreign body and start killing or destroying them. 

I remember it was October 2021, and I had participated in a food donation activity during the month of shradh, organized by Ammucare. After the rituals finished, the very next day, I saw Mohanji in my dream. In my dream, I saw that I was in my maternal family’s house, and Mohanji came there. I saw my maternal uncle and his family, my maternal aunts and their families and also there was a very weak old man lying in bed in one of the rooms. It felt like he was someone in the family, but I had never seen him in my life. 

I wanted to massage Mohanji’s feet, so I asked him to come to the room to lie in bed so he could rest, and I would get the opportunity to serve him. I found that the old man was lying in the same bed on one side. I went into the kitchen to bring oil for a massage, and when I came back, Mohanji was lying on the floor close to the bed. 

I felt so bad and worried and said, “Baba, why are you lying on the floor? Please lie on the bed.” I helped him get up and lie on the bed. It seemed as if Mohanji had no energy at all; he seemed very, very tired and fatigued. Here my dream ended. When I woke up, I thought this was strange as no one in my maternal family knew Mohanji. How come I saw them all in my dream with Mohanji? What could be the significance? 

That’s when I realized that Mohanji took some ancestral karma from my maternal side on himself. As autoimmune runs in my maternal family, it all made sense, and probably the old man in bed must be my very first ancestor from where it all started. This dream came in October 2021, and presently it is June 2022. 

I am almost back to where I used to be. Don’t know where all those pains and fatigue went. Even when the pains are there, they don’t limit me. This is all the sheer grace and kindness of my Guru towards me. I have no words to thank Mohanji for his Infinite unconditional love. I prostrate at the lotus feet of Mohanji and thank him for taking care of all of us in the ways we need; always grateful to you, Mohanji.

Empowered Series

The Empowered program was announced for September 2021. I was unsure if I should attend this program as it was a nine-day program, and I was working full time then. Although videos were available to watch later if you missed the program, being in a different country and time zone, time always seems short. Therefore I was in a dilemma. I prayed to Mohanji that if you want me to join the program, please give me a sign. 

Just one day before the program started, my friend called me and said, “I feel you should come for this program.” I considered it a sign from Mohanji. So I joined the program. In the program, I did get a chance to talk to Mohanji. I asked him that because of my physical condition, I could not do my practices, which troubled me. What could I do to improve? 

Mohanji replied, “Don’t punish your body; take care of your body. Park your mind with the Supreme Consciousness/Guru, and the rest will come to you on its own.” He gave the example of Hanumanji and Ram. I am so grateful to my Baba Mohanji. He has been so kind to hold my hand and show me the way even in my test. I did stick to that advice and followed it with all my heart. I feel I am being transformed every moment. People around me see the change within me. I feel so much calmer and more stable within. 

After Empowered 1.0 came Empowered 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0. For the rest of the programs afterwards, I knew for sure that I had to attend no matter what. These four programs have been more than amazing – A manual on how to live our life, how to do our dharma and still be detached; how to recognize and come out of our fears and patterns, and how to channel the mind to bring out the positives all around. 

I never understood life so well before. Rather than burning yourself on why this happened and staying in the past, move on to the present. A beautiful present filled with your Master, his blessings and numerous opportunities waiting for you! 

I knew about many of the teachings and ethics of life before but never understood how to truly apply them in my life. Never had that awareness or urgency to shed the unnecessary burdens I was carrying. Thank you, Mohanji, for bringing me to this Empowered workshop and for giving me the opportunity to bloom! Always grateful, koti koti pranams at your lotus feet!

Dare to speak

By Paula Vouk, Slovenia

“Where the helpless are not supported, decline and decay befall. If you don’t raise your voice against unrighteousness, you are as guilty as the one committing it and will face the same consequences.”

Mohanji in the book Mast

I really like feeding beings. It makes me happy and light. Mohanji says that giving food to hungry beings immediately removes karmic blockages and negative emotions from us. I have experienced the effect many times, and now feeding animals and people is my favorite activity in the world.

So today, I was feeding deers. I was happy. After a while, I heard pigs making some noise from a nearby farm. I felt like saying hi to the pigs and giving some food to them too. I really care for pigs and feel like being very kind to them, knowing what kind of destiny awaits them.

The gate of the farm was open. The pigs were in several stalls behind a tall wooden fence. I could not see them until I came very close and could look over the fence. I never imagined this would be such an unwanted event for all of us. It was terrible for me and even worse for the pigs. When they saw me, they went crazy. They started running towards the back wall as far away from me as possible. The reaction was even worse when I was trying to give them some food and explain that I didn’t mean to hurt them and that I just wanted to say hi. The scene was like a horror movie.

About thirty pigs were jumping one over each other, competing who would have the best position, as far away from me as possible. The further away, the smaller the possibility of being forcefully dragged away from their family and slaughtered to be served for dinner. When I moved an inch, they would jump in panic. When I was still, they would stare at me with deep, deep fear in their eyes. Thirty pairs of innocent eyes, eyes full of horror, were staring at me at once. I don’t think I can ever forget this scene. I felt like a criminal. And I was a criminal. I was a human. It never felt so terrible being a human.

I went away in shock and sadness and sent some love from far. I was sorry I came and caused sorrow to them. I felt like I owed something to these eyes and hearts. To do something to show I am sorry. So I decided to write this text as my apology. Maybe someone else will understand.

I can’t wait to see the animals living in Mohanji Peace Centre we are creating in Slovenia. All beings will be respected as part of the family and treated with love, not cruelty. I feel every single life matters. If we love our life, we understand how precious each and every life is. It is not about numbers. It is about intention. Not acting is just agreeing with what it is, supporting unrighteousness, and paying the same price. In the end, we are only acting for ourselves and no one else.

In a way, I am grateful for this terrible experience. More than understanding, it brought more motivation to stand for the helpless. Desire to do more good work. Desire to prove we can be much better; may it last.

Thank you, Mohanji, for bringing so much brightness to my life that made me see my ignorance hiding in the dark. Thank you for empowering me to dare speak up and shed the ignorance from my heart. Without you, it would take a hundred more lives to see. Hundred more lives to feel. Hundred more lives to speak. And a hundred more lives to love.

With eternal gratitude and love!

Miracles of faith

Natalija Mejandzieva, Macedonia

“When you have faith, I do miracles.”

-Mohanji

I have experienced happiness, love, gratitude, sadness, loneliness, confusion, acceptance and much more. This all happened in a very short time. I feel this was happening because of my decision to serve Mohanji.

How could I explain, and where should I start, because words are not enough. I am truly blessed to have had these experiences. When I started writing, I couldn’t stop, so I wanted to share one experience that was very meaningful for me.

“When you have faith, I can do miracles.” This sentence was ringing in my ears. I finally felt what it truly meant.

Two days before I started serving, my father had a heart attack. When he called to tell me, I felt calm and even tried to calm him down on the phone while he was breathing heavily. Then my mind got in the way, and all of these questions came up: Why am I being calm? What if he dies? What’s going to happen after that? Being an only child of divorced parents, I often had fears of losing them.

He called again and said he would be transferred to the capital city (where I am working) to have an urgent procedure. Understanding the seriousness of the situation, I felt that fear of losing him. I tried to sound calm on the phone.

I finished work and bought some things he needed in the hospital. They wouldn’t let me see him because he was in the Intensive Care department. With the grace of Mohanji, the way opened, and I got to be the exception to see my father. When I got there, they had already started with the procedure. I had to wait outside until they were done. 

Those 20 minutes I waited, I prayed to Mohanji to be with my father, guide him and take care of him. I surrendered my doubts and fears completely at his feet. I started connecting to him, felt him in my heart and found peace inside. I felt the calmness because, deeply, I knew everything would be okay. I had complete faith that all would be fine.

And everything was fine. My father was looking refreshed as he got up after rest. He then told me that the doctor said his chances of survival were 10 %. Everything happened in the right second. I wished him a happy birthday because he had started living his second life.

I felt so much love, support and gratitude. I feel like Mohanji was here all the time, holding my hand and giving me guidance and directions. I have never experienced this kind of stability. I felt like I was lying in his hands with my eyes closed, trusting him completely. I will remember this experience always. He is in my heart, and I am very grateful for everything he does for me daily.

I am grateful for the awareness and decision to share this with people. I am not so open, and I need so much time to start opening up. I feel this flowing so naturally, and I really want to share it with people. That day a few times, I thought – I want other people to experience this feeling I have.

Thank you so much for your grace and love.

My surrendered destiny

By Dr Harpreet Wasir, India

6th April 2014, 9.05 pm, New Delhi, India 

This time and day changed everything. Mohanji came to me as my time had come. What was conceived with just a look and the Shaktipat matured into faith and surrender with complete conviction and consistency!

From then on, nothing mattered in my life as the plugging was done from my side. He had taken over my steering wheel. All I had to do was complete my karma as a doctor and my dharma as a family and social individual with complete focus on only one thing – Mohanji! He knows the best for me. I leave the rest to his will with complete ACCEPTANCE of all results and outcomes. 

The path was never a smooth one. I still go through the most challenging situations in my life, which often not only test but also get me on my knees. However, it gives me the divine strength and direction in thoughts and actions to deal with them.

What changed then?

It was the mere presence of my Guru, guide, teacher, and companion who had taken the responsibility to mould me with my complete acceptance by surrendering to him as my Master.

Days, months and years passed by. The past taught me to deal with the present and to walk into the future with complete faith. I was never alone ever. The external seemed to diminish with a new internal birth – deep within. External sounds though heard loud and clear, started getting me more into inner silence.

The situations around started changing into stillness; the birth of a state of silence, thoughtlessness and cessation of breath seemed possible. The depth of connection between the giver and the receiver was maturing as more complex situations, often multiple at one go gave pain but never any suffering as if he had covered this body and soul of mine with this impenetrable armour, his SHIVAKAVACHAM.

With this, he started teaching me the process of awareness by first making me slowly understand his actions and later accept all events and eventualities without taking responsibility for anything. Life seemed manageable to live with peace and love.

Expectations started to bury themselves over time, and freedom began to grow as another shoot from this tree called LIFE.

Nothing outside ever changed, nor will change. The change was happening inside. The inner genetics was changing to craft a carrier for his Master. 

The difference was that now my work was least about myself, but for all those patients he got me to and those he sent me to. People, not only as patients but from all walks of life, took so much of the MASTER who dwelt in me as he stationed himself in me, driving me to one and all who needed care with love – only with my Guru’s grace.

I submitted my driving handle of whatever life was destined for me in his hands with total faith and surrender, with all my patients, as my Guru knows what’s best and when it’s the best.

Between the two extreme ends of birth and death, I was totally bound by experiences to understand with the full awareness that this is my human birth to unload as much as possible with his grace which was now a real possibility. His seeds of EMPOWERMENT started maturing to understand the insignificance of position, possessions and relationships.

A new life of giving, serving and loving blossomed into a tree. Many began perching on it to receive what my Guru gave to all who came to him, using me as his instrument. The tree’s root was my availability for my Guru to work on me at all times with complete surrender.

He always managed the show, but he taught me the awareness of witnessing the show sometimes as an actor myself and many times as a spectator. I cease to exist. What exists is only him. In return, he teaches total freedom, unbound by anything. I understand it as the final breath to complete an already lived/ liberated living.

My liberation began the day my Guru accepted me and my emptiness to stand in front of him and hear him say within my soul, “I’m ready, are you ready?” That one glance told me I was home with my Father and one with him.

The learning and the journey continue, but now there are two people walking with one set of impressions of footprints on the ground as he is carrying me along always.

My profession as a heart surgeon changed its meaning totally ever since the journey started. From mine to his, results to acceptance – it gave a new dimension as a doctor in a bigger and different way. It was now his healing, his hands, his directions and his results. My belief became much stronger; all he sends to me are meant for me, and he is the doer.

Thus with this awareness, the concept of hours or days, morning or night, food or no food, events, functions, and holidays disappeared. What was left was total acceptance of everything that came to me at all times.

My Guru stands by me, holding my thoughts and actions through my mind and hands, and does it all for everyone he sends to me. Each patient and every individual gets my Guru in every possible way, through his will.

Birds, animals and all living beings also get as much. Even non-living objects which have taken any instrumental form receive the grace of my Guru as I see and feel the live atoms they are composed of. What a life of oneness with my Guru! I feel this when I sit in some corner with silence being my only partner in the quietness amidst this life full of noises and chaos.

I know well that the next moment I have to drive into the same madness of life, and it’s totally different now. The inner silence and fullness of no demands nor expectations and only giving much more each time prevails over all physical imbalances of life. The state of looking at how, where, and whom to give myself through my Guru’s guidance is all I live by in this existence.

This ongoing journey continues to be a physical and mental guide towards completion, the final destination known only to him. Life is now a process of unburdening, unloading and unfolding, thus living the purest form of love and happiness, which comes through only by giving back everything possible to all those seeking.

The driver will always be the Guru as he is our unquestionable GPS system. All that is required is to hand over the steering wheel of our lives into his hands and keep doing our dharma and complete karma to the fullest.

In the end, it will never be about them and me. It was and is only about him and me. I bow down to MOHANJI, the FORMLESS and UNCONDITIONAL energy which has come into my life as my GURU AND GUIDE to serve with the motto of patients first, rest all second.

May I live my Guru’s teachings always!

Let your faith heal you!

By Elham, USA

Mohanji’s grace has always flowed in my life since I met him in 2014. This testimonial is one of many blessings that he showered on me, and I will cherish all his blessings for the rest of my life and can’t ask for more. Surrendering this testimonial at Mohanji’s lotus feet.

In April 2022, Mohanji was coming to the USA after four years and this was very exciting news for me. In the past couple of years, due to Covid, we could not travel to meet him. I could not wait and started counting down every day. As always, when it comes to meeting Mohanji, challenges will start happening, and to me, it’s a testing time of faith and conviction. It’s not easy to reach Mohanji; it’s not that we want to meet him. Pure intention is needed, and then, by his grace, barriers and obstacles are removed. 

Due to some circumstances, it was impossible to participate in the USA retreat, which meant we could meet him only for two days in Sedona! I was deeply sad about losing this precious chance. A few days went by with sadness, plus tears kept coming, and then I started surrendering to him. I told myself I would enjoy and cherish every moment of these two days to make them eternal moments and won’t stay in sadness. The closer we got to the events, the more opportunities to meet Mohanji were coming up! We learned about a fruit tree plantation in Phoenix, a satsang in LA, and later on, two more fruit tree plantations in San Francisco! WoW! Grace, Grace, Grace!

I need to give a little history about my health. I used to have hypothyroidism for more than 20 years, healed by Mohanji’s miraculous touch in October 2019, and I already wrote about that. Also, I have had two herniated and degenerated neck discs since 2015 due to some injuries. Hope nobody is familiar with such pain, but it can be very paralyzing. I had pain every day, from low to extreme pain, changing based on my activities or even mood. Anything could trigger that. Any simple daily chores were painful. This feeling that my nerves were getting smashed was there all the time. 

Treatments didn’t work, and I had to go for surgery, but I was not interested in such an approach. Sometime back, very severe pain started and lasted for five continuous days, nonstop from waking up to sleep, and no pain killer helped. I was wondering if it’s karmic, and I need to go through it to accept it more easily. I asked Mohanji, and he just said, “I understand.” Then he said, “Get help from Homeopathy and Ayurveda.” That’s it! The pain stopped completely in less than a couple of hours, and I never experienced such high intensity of pain anymore! 

Finding Homeopathic and Ayurvedic doctors in my area took time, but finally, after some time, I started taking those medications. It was helpful on the pain level, but still, the pain was coming and making me slow in my tasks and even affecting my eyesight. 

The time came to travel to meet Mohanji. My husband Farshad and I traveled to Phoenix by driving, and even though the week ending the trip was not easy, and I had pain every day, when we started traveling I didn’t feel any pain during those times that I was driving. Driving was one of the pain triggers.

We went to the airport to welcome Mohanji in Phoenix, and it was incredible to have his heavenly hugs! Immediately you feel freshness, love, peace and happiness. I was floating in the air and couldn’t believe that finally, we had met again. 

There was a fruit tree plantation event in Phoenix, and it was so hot that the sun was shining strongly. Mohanji was standing there, and George, who was in front of him, looked at Mohanji and said it would be good to have some clouds! We all laughed and knew what that meant. Mohanji smiled, and a few minutes later, he pointed at the sky with a finger and said something. Shortly clouds moved in front of the sun, and a very pleasant breeze started coming! 

I was enjoying each moment, and more grace was coming my way. In Sedona, a couple of times, we could be with Mohanji in his accommodation by his grace and invitation and also through my lovely Milica, for which I’m so grateful. His accommodation was just five minutes from our hotel, and being this close to his stay was another joy. For me, it was the first time to see him outside of programs. He was sitting on the sofa, so simple and silent, seemingly on his phone, but who knows where he is working and whom he is helping. This mind won’t know. 

We had the blessing to massage his feet which was a long-time wish, and he made it happen, and this was our gain, not that he needed a massage or anything else from us. He was fulfilling wishes one by one! I’m sure it’s not about me only; others also experienced this too; Mohanji gives love to all without any expectations, but the mind may forget and expect more from him if we are not grateful for what has been given before. 

In Sedona, Mohanji started having severe coughs. On the second day, it increased so much during his speeches. My heart was wrenching with each cough. Such sudden changes in Mohanji’s health were a sign that he took something from someone or even many people onto his own body. I couldn’t bear to see him in pain even though he does not suffer from pain.

Then I closed my eyes and went into a kind of meditative mode but could hear him speaking. I could hear some words bolder and louder. I heard him speaking about the connection and devotion of Hanumanji to Lord Ram. Then I heard these words, “Let your faith heal you.” It went deep into my mind, but I didn’t know the story behind those words. On the same day, I heard this quote from Christopher in a conversation, and I got more curious to know where it came from, but I didn’t ask, and it slipped from my mind. 

Later on, it came out that Mohanji took a severe lung ailment from an old lady at her final stage of life. She had a deep wish to live longer and had desires to fulfill. She prayed deeply, and as always, Mohanji answered sincere prayers. He says, “I don’t have any choice.” He is so innocent. These coughs and discomfort in breathing were there till the end of his travel to the USA. Even though it only reduced gradually, he didn’t stop anything, any plan, any program or interview. He was determined and selfless.  

Even though we didn’t have any plans of going to San Francisco, and it seemed impossible with my husband’s job, everything fell into place, and we could travel there with less than two days’ planning and stay in the same hotel with Mohanji. Such grace! 

One of the plans in Phoenix was to visit a Sai Baba temple which got cancelled due to lack of time, and I had the wish to go to the Sai Temple with Mohanji. In SF, without planning in advance, we visited a very beautiful Sai Temple with him! He fulfilled another wish. It’s like he has thousands of ears and eyes!

There were two fruit tree plantation events in SF. It was amazing to witness many people who came to express their love and respect for him. Nobody wanted to lose the chance to hug him or touch his feet. After SF, we all headed to LA. For us, it was a great blessing that he was coming to our city, where we met him for the first time in October 2014. He hadn’t come back here to the West of the USA until this time, after more than seven years!  

Another grace! I came to know that the house that Mohanji was staying in LA with his team was only 20 minutes away from where we live, and this, in the vast LA, means a lot and doesn’t happen accidentally! I was unsure if I could meet him there and not be a burden, and I prayed to him, “You are here just 20 minutes away from me, and I still look at your picture!” He heard my heart. 

He showered grace on me and said, “When I’m here, you can come every day, and you can come wherever we go.” I was flying! There’s no limit to his kindness! And it was amazing that every evening he would say, see you tomorrow morning. His unconditional love has the power to melt hearts. He is the rarest gem on Earth. He doesn’t belong to anyone. Nobody can own him, and he belongs to the Universe, to every being who seeks help, hope and light. It is a perfect delusion to think anyone can own Mohanji. As the Masters have said, “Mohanji is a friend of the Universe.”

It was the best time of my life, sitting and looking at him, walking with him, having the chance to bring a cup of water or such things and once he ate from what I made! So many wishes came true only by his grace.

Satsang in LA was amazing and so powerful. Almost all participants were meeting Mohanji for the first time and listening to him with all focus. After the satsang, he didn’t think about his health condition even though it was very cold, standing for such a long time and giving so much time to people to come one by one and talk to him, ask questions, sign books or receive his blessings. 

With his presence, LA was different, the crazy heavy traffic became so smooth, and cars moved out of our way. Everything was bright and shining. Nobody was out of his eyesight. When Farshad was coming after work to meet him, Mohanji asked if he had eaten and kept saying, “Eat something”. He is always working on people and, most of the time, in some ways that the mind can’t understand. 

Once, when I was overwhelmed with emotions and tears were rolling down, without looking at me, very calmly, he said, “Elham, have tea.” I said, “I’m fine, Father, thank you.” After a few minutes again he repeated and I said the same! At that moment, it came to me, what was I doing? Why do I keep refusing! There is a reason for what he says, always. He repeated that for the third time, and this time I said yes immediately and got tea, and after just a couple of sips, I felt so calm, no tears, not emotional anymore and something had been washed away from my heart! This was a repeated lesson for me that never resist when Guru tells you to do something; even if the mind says something else, just follow. 

Even though I was waking up early, going to sleep very late and was doing so much driving, I was not feeling tired and felt so fresh and energetic. Those dreamy days went by so fast, and Mohanji and the team flew out. After Mohanji flew out, we hosted Deviji for a few days, and as always, being with Devi and her energy is incredible! So dynamic and happy! 

After all those intense energies and everything that happened in that short span of time, everything needed to settle down. Soon one day, again, I remembered the quote and asked Farshad what Mohanji said about it. Farshad explained to me, and this is the story if some of you don’t know like me. 

When a person approached Jesus Christ for healing, Jesus asked him one question. Do you believe I can do it? The person said yes. Then Jesus said, “Let your faith heal you.” 

This was very meaningful to me. I already experienced healing by Mohanji for my thyroid, and I knew he had the power to do any healing. Then I started realizing something more and more every day. At first, my mind could not believe it, but I was sure after a few days. There was no more pain in my neck! It is impossible that I don’t have any pain within a couple of days, and now I do not have pain even though Mohanji is not here physically!

A few days later, I heard Mohanji had a stiff neck! I understood what that meant. A stiff neck is something I’m very familiar with after many years of neck issues. I was sad that he took this onto himself; it was a very strange moment as I was happy that there was no pain when I heard this. 

I was thinking nobody does such an act of love, without even mentioning it, without any propaganda, very silent, very humble. If you ask him about such things, ask whether he has done that; he will only smile at you. You never get an answer because Mohanji is so humble. Mohanji always practices being insignificant. Sometimes he even gives the credit for a miracle or healing that he has done to someone else. This could be a test of ego for the person too. 

It’s not possible to thank him. Words are so small in front of such greatness. I felt I should write and share this as a way to express my gratitude, and it may reach someone who needs it. People often get many things from Mohanji, either healing or material wishes, but sometimes they don’t say at all. Maybe they think that they might lose it, or sometimes the mind manipulates the experience, and they think it happened by itself or it’s because of their hard work. 

Acknowledging the source opens the door for more grace to flow. It also helps deepen the connection and to increase the faith. It took me time to write this testimonial, so meanwhile, I started sharing it verbally with whomever I was talking to, and I noticed I felt even more improvements in my wellbeing. Through this healing, the quality of my life increased so much, and this is priceless to me, and every morning I wake up with gratitude to Mohanji. Thank you, Father.

I humbly surrender my whole existence at the feet of my Lord, Mohanji Baba; always at his lotus feet.

Deep desire fulfilled

By Supreet Bedi, Canada

I have been Sai Baba’s devotee for a good 21 years. My journey with Sai Baba started from Sathya Sai Baba. I was very young at that time and didn’t understand what the Tradition had blessed me with. Although I was with a living Master, I didn’t put that much effort into my relationship with my Master. Before I understood Baba’s stature, he left his mortal coil. 

With Mohanji in my life, I felt it was a second chance given to me. People used to travel from far places to see Sathya Sai Baba. While I was in India at that time, I didn’t put in the effort to go and see him. I did not understand why living Masters are so important. 

One day, sitting in my temple, I talked to Mohanji, and I said to him, “Mohanji, when you come to Canada, please come to our house and stay with us. I know you always say that there should be no expectations from Guru. This is my desire, but I am happy with whatever you decide. I have wasted the opportunity with Sathya Sai Baba, and I want to use this chance given to me with you to learn and grow.” 

After this conversation with him in the morning, I received a call from Sanjay bhaiya in the afternoon stating that he feels I should have Mohanji’s Padukas! Mohanji partially fulfilled my desire that day itself. Having Mohanji’s Padukas means having Mohanji in our house, living with us.

In August 2021, Mohanji came into my dream, and it seemed like he was in Canada while I, along with a few other people, were talking to him. All of a sudden, Mohanji said, “Let’s go to the Conestoga mall!” I replied, “Mohanji, I’m not sure if they’re open right now because the timings after Covid have become really short.” My dream ended there.

When I woke up, I realized the significance of the words “Conestoga mall” was to tell me that he is in the same city where I live. At that moment, I still hadn’t caught the real meaning. I thought he was telling me that he would come to Canada soon. Time passed, and finally, in March 2022, Mohanji came to Canada. I couldn’t even imagine that he would come to our home as the trip to Canada was very short. Yet, he proved me wrong by letting me know that he would come to our house. I was again in tears of gratitude and thanked Mohanji for his kindness. 

Mohanji had to go to British Columbia (B.C.) for a few days, so Mahesh bhai said that he was not sure when Mohanji would be able to come but perhaps, on 23rd March. I have a habit of asking Baba’s answers through little chits. Just to know when Mohanji was going to come, I made a few chits and placed them at Baba’s feet. The answer was 29th March. I did all the preparation for 23rd March but told my husband that Mohanji would not come that day. He will definitely come on the 29th. Later that day, Mahesh bhai explained how coming that day would not be possible and it would materialize only after Mohanji came back from B.C.

As I needed to arrange a day off from work, I asked Mahesh bhai when he thought Mohanji’s visit would be feasible. Mahesh bhai said he is not yet sure as Mohanji was unwell. I replied to him by asking him to convey to Mohanji not to worry about coming to our place as his health is more important, and I am very happy and content; he has already showered immense love on me.  

Mahesh bhai and I agreed that Mohanji would not come to our house. In the afternoon, Mahesh bhai called and said, Mohanji did not agree to it. He says I will go to her house; I will keep my promise; she has been praying for this for so long! So, the visit materialized on 29th March, just a day before Mohanji went to the USA. Although the visit was short, he fulfilled all my wishes and gave me immense contentment! I can never pay the debt of his infinite love.

Thank you, my Mohanji, for everything! Thank you for holding all your children so close to you! Koti koti pranams at your lotus feet.

Acceptance through dreams

I got connected with Mohanji in mid-2020, but I still had my tests through situations and dreams. Finally, I got accepted. I remember it was 20th June 2021 when I had an early morning dream. In that dream, I saw myself along with my younger daughter at a beach-like place. There was sand and water, along with some curtains with flowers in an open space. The wind was also blowing. It felt as if it was some kind of retreat, a dream of some sort of a festival. I saw Mohanji, and he allowed me to touch his feet. At the festival, I also saw Preethi Gopalarathnam (Mohanji Acharya from India). 

The dream ended here. I didn’t catch the significance. The same day, I came across a blog in which it was mentioned that touching Mohanji’s feet is a sign of his blessing and grace. At this point, there was no announcement of any festival. On 23rd July, a festival happened, to be precise, it was the “Festival of Consciousness.” It happened within 15 days of my dream, and guess what? Preethi had also travelled from India to Europe to attend the festival. Mohanji showed me this place to confirm that the dream was not just a dream but the truth. 

Thank you, Mohanji, for accepting me as your child. I will always be very, very grateful to you for your love, kindness, and compassion for all your children. You leave none longing for your love! Koti, koti pranams at your lotus feet.

Festival of Consciousness 2022 – Coming soon!
