Mohanji’s silent message to a devotee

By Charles Ndifon Londi, Canada

Mohanji advocates a vegan lifestyle, and this makes sense when viewed from the ahimsa (non-violence to all sentient beings) perspective. The beauty of his style is that it is suggestive and not forced upon the devotee, and this enables him/her to handle the changes that come with adherence to Consciousness Kriya (a lifestyle of humility, non-violence, gratitude and purity). And so, quite frankly, some will give up meat and meat products slowly and in a natural way. 

It will come from within and not so much from without. However, along the way, there will be silent nudges and reminders from Mohanji of the virtues of leading a vegan lifestyle. This is what happened to a Mohanji devotee in the Congo Democratic Republic, Joseph, whom I jokingly call Tonton Jeff, the grand Hindu of Congo. The story that follows is about his experience, and he has granted me permission to narrate it for the edification of all.

On account of many household chores, he had to engage another housemaid soon after, the former one left. After some time, he realized that the new housemaid, unlike the former one, would not eat whenever food was served with meat. Joseph decided to ask her why she was behaving in that way. The young lady told him she is a Christian, and the Pastor of her church discourages the eating of animal flesh. 

The young lady to whom I spoke said all congregation members are strict vegetarians. The church members come together and produce something that resembles meat from non-animal ingredients, and this is sold to congregants as a viable food source. So the encounter with meat at Joseph’s home caused her to become squeamish, and she just kept away whenever food with traces of animal flesh was served. 

The run-up to this situation, she said, was her health which was never good until she joined this Christian church where fasting and prayers were done, and the eating of meat in all forms was eschewed. Thereafter, she was relieved of all her health afflictions, she said, and that is why she could not go back to eating animal flesh. And here, the silent but audible voice of Mohanji comes in. 

In my conversation with Joseph, he himself told me that he understood this subtle message from Mohanji through his housemaid and that he’ll make efforts to be like her housemaid too. I was very thrilled by this story which illustrates the use of what some call the ‘Golden Tongued’ wisdom by great Masters operating in the Supreme God Consciousness/Awareness to pass across messages without saying a word directly to the person for whom a message is destined. 

It may be through even a mad man, a signpost, a billboard, radio or television advertisement, a casual statement by a friend or stranger, etc. Joseph’s housemaid’s story made me wake up to the voice of Guru Mohanji, the voice of God, all around me, and this may well be a message for anyone else.

From the maid’s experience, I deduce that even if one were not a spiritually-minded person, a vegan lifestyle has a huge positive impact on one’s personal health, which is a plus, not a minus. I have, since becoming a Kriya Yogi, tried to do some research on human beings and meat-eating, and this is what I found out. 

The intestines of human beings aren’t designed to handle meat, so man is actually a herbivore (eating leaves and plants). If a herbivore eats meat (man, for example), it takes a very long time to exit the body, putrifies and produces noxious gases and all kinds of toxins that compromise health. 

It cannot be gainsaid that human beings, who are by nature herbivores, don’t have a problem with meat digestion and excretion. Perhaps Joseph’s housemaid’s story of chronic ill health and becoming well and vibrant after she stopped eating meat is a good signpost for anyone who cares nothing about spirituality but just wants to improve their health. One may well stumble on Mohanji’s guidance to physical and spiritual healing in the process.

Omnipresence

Linda Abrol, Netherlands

Beyond boundaries

At times, my non-confirmative, all-encompassing Parabrahma, Jesus, Buddha, Dattatreya-Mohanji reflects my Guru Swami Gopal Baba’s words or behavior from the time Swami was still amongst us in physical form. 

One night in November 2018 in Bombay, we eagerly expected Swami Gopal Baba to arrive at a devotees’ residence where we were invited. We had formed a line in the driveway of the house while waiting for His car to arrive. It so happened that the car door opened right in front of me, so it was on me that Swami’s first glance rested. He smiled delightedly, and with a sense of both surprise and confirmation, He said: ‘Linda! You have come!?’ He must have known that it had been crazy timing. 

We were in the midst of an incredible move, shifting houses, county and profession, all at once. We were in the process of opening an Indian vegetarian/vegan restaurant in the centre of Alkmaar. After more than thirty years in fashion development and sales, this was very exciting. But I was a hundred per cent sure that my longing to meet Swami was pure and would be supported. 

My trip fell exactly on the days that we had to wait for the Indian chefs to arrive after we finished the refurbishing and furnishing of the restaurant. I had booked the flight at an earlier stage, but the timing couldn’t have been better! Which was surely the Masters’ grace. So, both my readiness and willingness to come and the Masters’ miraculous timing made this memorial visit possible.

Something similar happened, but this time with Mohanji, during our recent journey to London. Parvati and I decided to travel together and booked our tickets for the event on March 14th 2022. We were planning to arrive on March 12th and depart on the 15th. At one point, Parvati found out that she had a very important appointment on the morning of the 15th, which couldn’t be delayed. But flying back after the event in the middle of the night would certainly trigger my migraine. 

I decided that I couldn’t join Parvati without forcing myself, so I cancelled my ticket for the event. We would have to book an event ticket, three corona tests, a taxi, return flight tickets, and probably a hotel, all for a one-day event that could be followed online. Although I was longing to meet Mohanji and be in his presence, my frail health condition made it an impossible, crazy and far too expensive move. This actually was the limited mind concept. 

However, the warm and kind U.K. Team members assured us that we most probably would be accommodated in a devotee’s house, and Priti suggested to expect a miracle, which I did. Why not? It was an amazing suggestion. I told Mohanji inwardly that I would love to see him again. Without asking anything, I simply opened my being to the possibility of a beautiful weekend in which all went smoothly, and then I let go. 

Parvati called right after my inner communication to tell me that she had found a possibility to travel in the afternoon of the fifteenth! I rebooked my event ticket, and we started searching for flight tickets. I had bad flu and could hardly concentrate, so we happened to make the booking one day late for a refund possibility in case of a positive corona test. KLM cancelled that possibility after March 2nd. If I got a positive test before our flight ten days later, my ticket would be wasted, and Parvati would be on her own. Nothing could be changed now, so we surrendered. We had to give it a chance. 

On arrival in the house (better described as a mansion or estate) of our warm and welcoming hosts, Yamini and Vivek, we heard the exciting news that Mohanji was expected that very evening. The program was still unknown. No one knew what to expect. Parvati and I didn’t even know if we were allowed to be part of the event, but we were happy to share in the entire household’s high energy frequency and buzz. We were thrilled when we heard we could join the program. 

Waiting in the entrance hall for Mohanji to step in, he first received a loving welcome from Yamini with aarati. Passing by me, Mohanji looked in my eyes with the same loving, surprised and confirming look that Swami Gopal Baba had given me in Bombay a few years earlier. He said, ‘Oh, you have come!’ Proving once again that for a Master of the Nath Tradition there are no boundaries anywhere at all times.

Rise from love 

Being in London, I noticed myself criticizing my every word and move. Insecurity came up. But I didn’t make it bigger by criticizing my inner critic. I watched it. In the morning, during my meditation, I surrendered and relaxed in the midst of the physical tension and stress that my inner critic caused. I felt as if Mohanji was consoling my inner child, and I simply let my head rest on His shoulder. I clearly heard Him say kindly: ‘Rise from Love.’

How simple, loving, and to the point were these words? Isn’t that what we should do, being kind? Let love be the foundation from which we can start to build? Any other foundation would be

 the cause for buildings to collapse in time. Especially the love for ourselves is the best starting point. Letting love in, I could raise my frequency from there instantly. 

Which reminded me of an incident in which Mohanji had told me (inside), ‘I will give you so much love that you will forget everything else.’

A divine guest at the table

On the 13th, again, another surprise awaited us. We were invited to come and visit the Shri Ram Mandir in London. Mohanji offered gorgeous gifts and Arathi to the Sri Jaganath deities. 

The next story requires a little intro. A few weeks ago, I had a dream. I was sitting at a long dining table. A very casual one. With Mohanji by my side. No words were spoken. Ever since then, I have offered a part of my food to Mohanji as if he is sitting at my table. It’s a reminder for me to eat more consciously, for my body is very sensitive and doesn’t like to digest everything I like eating. 

Now I will shift to the reality in the Sri Ram Mandir. Parvati and I went to the dining hall for our lunch. Mohanji was coming out of the hall. We presumed He had blessed the food and would eat in a quiet room. We took a plate, searched for an empty place to sit, and found out that the big table was the only place with empty spaces. After taking our places, Mohanji stepped into the hall and took the seat right in front of me. We immediately stood up and took our plates from the table to make room for his P.A.’s and the members of his party. 

Mohanji smiled and motioned us to stay seated. We dropped back in our seats and were flabbergasted. I didn’t know what to say or do, so I focused on conscious eating and left Mohanji to eat in peace. With Mohanji sitting so close to us, remembering was a conscious practice. After lunch, I ventured, saying, ‘Mohanji, just a few weeks ago. I dreamt that you were sitting with me at a long dining table.’ Mohanji smiled and said: ‘It was not a dream!’ which left me in awe. How many unexpected blessings can one digest? 

Wishes fulfilled

On the 14th, we attended the event in the Kensington Hotel in London. Mohanji graciously consented to individual and group pictures with everyone present. After the group picture with the entire U.K. team and all participants, including the Skanda Vale Swamis and Sisters, we waited in a row for our turn. Parvati saw Mohanji standing quite straight and not touching anyone in the beginning. She smiled mischievously and said, “We are not going to let him get away with this, are we?” “No,” I answered and smiled. “We will nicely snuggle up.” We giggled like small children. Which we were. Our inner child still needs to be healed.

When I approached Mohanji, He immediately opened his arms and wrapped his left arm around me, and I naturally let my head rest on his shoulder, feeling loved and safe, just like in my meditation. ‘Rise from love’ became very tangible. I heard somebody say that day: Mohanji fulfils everybody’s deepest desires. This is true. And I can add, he fulfils more than I can even think of. Better to stop thinking at all and enjoy in awe and gratitude. 

Now, if you think that my mind had subsided to a higher truth, the truth of self-acceptance, I must disappoint you. A sequel to the ‘picture story’ started right after the picture-taking procedure. My monkey mind started making comments. Old trauma caused turbulence in my body. Where I had felt so elated, so high in energy frequency (which is shown in the result of the pictures that Tea kindly sent to me) during the picture-taking procedure, after the session, my mind tried to drag me down, mentioning all the things that I should or shouldn’t have done. I especially shouldn’t have taken the freedom to lay my head on his shoulder. Mohanji would surely disapprove of it. And I could definitely tell that from the look on his face. I witnessed my mind, did my best to not believe a thing and didn’t succeed very well. 

I knew already that I judged myself at times but was not aware that such an explosion of insecure feelings was possible. This weekend really showed me lots of it. It must have been the high energy of the Master, shining brightly on the greyness of the lower frequency thoughts and feelings. When I sent the picture to Sita, I received her comment immediately. She didn’t know what my mind was trying to make me believe about it. She wrote, ‘I love the look on Mohanji’s face. So spacious. The universe in his eyes,’ which made me fully aware that only my mind was churning. 

This morning, I woke up with the inner message: ‘Heaven laid his head on my shoulder.’ I smiled. The remaining gloominess concerning the picture left me instantly, even though I didn’t fully understand the words. 

But the mere sound of it was so wonderful! Later in the day, I started to understand a bit of the meaning of this amazing message. Mohanji is definitely far too busy experiencing bliss and focussing on purpose to think about Linda’s do’s and don’ts. For Mohanji, most certainly, there isn’t even such a thing as a person called Mohanji and another one called Linda. There is only heaven. So, whoever lays their head on his shoulder, it is all heaven. Inside, outside, everywhere, nowhere. And this is what I am. We are. 

Narayan Kaur posted this beautiful text on F.B. later on the same day:

“Avadhootas have deleted their internal and external world. There is only bliss. They become just a presence.” Mohanji

Connection and love beyond physical boundaries.

Sonia Mayur, Muscat 

Today, 21.02.2022, while we got together to chant for Mohanji’s Birthday celebration, I had an experience that I wanted to write about and share with everyone. 

We started the usual process of chanting Mohanji’s Gayatri Mantra that I have been doing with the rest of the Mohanji family since January 23, 2022. 

I am always in sync with the Mohanji Acharya, who leads us all through the session, but today I felt I was rushing, and I was chanting the mantra on my own while Nirupama ji was chanting at a different pace. I tried a lot to catch up with her and slow down my pace, but I just couldn’t. So I surrendered to my beloved Mohanji and continued at the pace I was going on. 

Even before we started chanting, I was inside a beautiful cave with Mohanji, who was sitting on a golden chair that was emitting a strong and bright light. I had lit an oil lamp on the right side close to where Mohanji’s chair was. The energy kept flowing, and I could feel I was merging with him, and my pace of the mantra went a bit faster. In no time, I finished the 108 times chanting, and I wore the Rudraksha Mala (blessed by Mohanji in Kailash) that I was doing the chant with and sat waiting for the others in the online group to finish.

While I sat with my eyes closed, I saw myself getting closer to Mohanji’s feet and just through gestures, I showed my inclination to do Guru Paada Puja, to which Mohanji smiled, and I continued. 

There was so much love pouring from Mohanji’s energy that I continued doing the Paada Puja while the chanting was still going on. Once I finished, I just sat close to Mohanji on his left side and kept looking at him while he smiled at me. 

Photos from Mohanji’s Muscat house

I felt I was home  

I became that small child who is in awe of her father and wants to keep looking at him while her father just smiles and showers more and more unconditional love on her. All this was happening while the mantra continued, and I was in a state of complete bliss. 

What a blessing I received from my Mohanji today ….

Once the chanting session finished, I couldn’t speak about my experience to anyone as the feeling and energy were so strong that I just kept sitting with my hands folded and prostrating at Mohanji’s lotus feet. 

Once I regained my senses, memories from my 1st Guru Paada Puja that happened here in Muscat on 23.02.2014 came flashing back to me.

I couldn’t believe myself with the energy that was flowing within me; I didn’t want to analyze anything; I was just soaking in the unconditional love of my Guru, my Mohanji. I picked up my phone to google about Paada Puja, and the 1st article that came up was Guru Paada Puja – Mohanji Satsang UK 2018. 

I couldn’t stop reading the article where Mohanji explained the significance of Guru Paada Puja. He mentions there, “Don’t do any rituals just for the sake of doing it.” I understood the true meaning of it today. One should do it with full awareness, devotion and surrender.

When I did Paada Puja in 2014, I clearly didn’t understand the true significance; I did because of my love for Mohanji. Today while I wasn’t even in the same physical proximity, I totally understood the significance that Mohanji explained in that satsang. 

Today, I received my biggest blessings in the form of performing Guru Paada Puja for my Mohanji two days before his birthday. What else can I ask for? What gift I can give him on his birthday when he lovingly knows how to spread unconditional love and grace upon his people. 

I bow down in humility and gratitude at my Guru’s Feet and pray to him to always be with me so I can walk this path of liberation gracefully.

Trust in the Guru

by a Mohanji follower

THE WHOLE WORLD MAY FORSAKE YOU, BUT YOUR GURU NEVER EVER WILL!

This is my true experience, and I can vouch for this statement I have made!

I do not know where to start, but I am surrendering this piece of writing to Mohanji, and I am writing this with gratitude towards him for taking care of me.

I was an ardent procrastinator previously, especially when it came to taking care of my own things. This was a quality that I wanted to change, and I am sure it is with my Guru’s grace that I’ve been able to do it. Even writing this testimonial piece was supposed to happen sometime in early January, as I had mentally promised Mohanji to do so during my tough times. Still, it is coming to fruition now after Mohanji’s Empowered programmes, which made me feel more empowered to do what I needed to do punctually and swiftly.

Well, that being said, I have been on this path, searching for truth right from 2007. I believe the reasons I haven’t been able to get closer to my destination are procrastination, lack of faith, being judgmental of people and being carried away by sweet people’s talks instead of focusing on my Guru and his talks.
Here’s my roller coaster ride in a nutshell.

My whole world was filled with bliss and joy after I met Mohanji physically in 2018, and I was in love for the first time in my life. People around could see it, I could feel it, and I was practically living in bliss. But I also had a monkey mind that was always hungry and greedy for more explanations, and I was trying to analyse everything Mohanji was saying. Analysis kills the feeling. That’s what happened to me. Trying to practically ANALYSE my feeling of bliss and sweet longing for my Guru, I contacted people whom I thought, according to my analysis, were deeply connected to Mohanji and his mission. I told them about the intensity of my yearning and how tears would pour out of my eyes just by thinking of my Guru.

Well, not everybody MAY BE THE RIGHT FIT to discuss your deep secrets, especially if it is about your Guru. I got swayed away in my path by their sweet talks and fancy projections, and my connection with my Guru gradually began to fade. I was totally aware of this happening, and I was unhappy to the core that my connection was being swayed. But I didn’t have the courage to NOT LISTEN to the sweet talks, which were true in their own way but not aligned with my Guru and his teachings. I so badly wanted to live Mohanji’s teachings, but I was associated with a company that was not! And I was getting swayed in all directions. I went from being a vegan to a non-vegan, and my perceptions were being changed without me recognising it.

Being in this company, I learned a lot about the many dimensions in which Masters operate, came across different practices, and even became good at some. But internally, I was bleeding because my connection with Mohanji was being compromised.

It was much later, after about two years, that I realised that my yearning was different, and I had the courage to break free from that sweet company and decided to dedicate myself only and only to Mohanji fully. Here, I am not criticising other practices or paths, but what I have learnt is that we should have clarity, conviction and courage to stand up for our Guru no matter how great and fast other practices/people may be or if they promise to bring you to liberation.

I also realised that being in this sweet company did not bring any internal transformation. However, I had acquired many healing/helpful skills and knowledge that very few people in the world possess. But what use is it if it cannot transform you from within? I was the same old person with a lot of guilt and regret! I am wholeheartedly seeking forgiveness from my Guru Mohanji for having swayed in my journey and not listening to him.

That being said, I also realised that breaking free from the company that you have been with for so long with support is not easy. Again, old patterns came up, and I was no longer in bliss, and was always irritated and lost due to family issues, my whole life falling apart, and a sudden relocation!

I wondered what had happened. How I had gone from being in a state of bliss to this mess just by not listening to my inner conscience and doing what I wanted to. I was paying the price for my own compromise. It was a huge price to pay, BUT Mohanji never left me during these times.

After I broke free from my previous company, I was always feeling Mohanji’s presence, but I was in no state to do anything internally or externally. Life was all rushed, and I didn’t feel like doing anything. I would sit in front of Mohanji’s picture every day and stare at him. My mind would wander about what would happen in the future, and guilt and regret again would fill me. I was not able to practice kriya or even chant. But the relocation did me good, and little did I know that it was Mohanji’s way of bringing me back on track.

The relocation process to another country was painful as I had embraced the country I was living in wholeheartedly right from childhood. It brought up a lot of anxieties and heartaches. But the good news was that the timing just coincided with the Empowered 1 program, and taking part in the program once again brought me back to my Guru’s embrace. I loved each moment of the 11-day program, and my life was once again back on track.

Then again, being in a different country had its own challenges. We rented a small place to stay from a friend with hardly a proper bed to sleep in, and most of the time, I was sleeping on the floor. Along with this, I was experiencing anxieties over my children’s education, financial situation and the need to find a new home. I continued trying to implement the being in the moment practice because that was all I could do and kept my faith in my Guru during this time.

As I said, with this minimal practice and only my intense faith, things started to turn around. A good friend of my family said he had found a beautiful house for sale, and we decided to look it up. It was indeed the kind of house we had been looking for, and with Mohanji’s grace, we decided to buy it. In the meantime, my kids were still at home and had not secured admission to any school. All the schools had opened long ago, and it was close to mid-year. Anxiety over anxiety built up as I approached different schools for admissions, but they all put us on a waitlist.

Suddenly, one day, I received a call from a school near the house to which we had decided to move, and they offered us admission immediately. I couldn’t believe it could all happen so fast as the rest of the schools were not ready to take us in. But it did happen, and everything was settled, and the kids started going to school. All this is the grace we get for the good things we do when our times are good. I seriously had no time to pray and no urge to do sadhana at that point, but my Guru has always taken care of me in the best possible way. I have felt it every time.

My focus began to improve as help was sent in many ways while settling into this new place. Support came to me physically and mentally, and Mohanji turned around the situation for me. Some Mohanji family members helped me tremendously during this tough period, and I wholeheartedly thank them for their love.

The next thing on my mind was finance. My financial situation was not so good, and I was looking for a job. While conversing with an old friend, she informed me of an internship in my field of education, and I immediately applied for it. I am sure this was the grace of my Guru, Mohanji, that I was selected for this program and was offered a stipend that could temporarily lessen my financial burden. I thanked him wholeheartedly for this in my mind and joined the internship.

While I was in this internship program, I received a call one day from the human resources department of a multinational company, asking me to appear for an interview. Even today, I cannot figure out how they got my number and my resume. When I asked them, they told me I had long back applied in a job search portal, and they had picked it up from there. I didn’t know where or when I had applied since I had quit working 10 years ago. Anyway, the good news was that I needed a job at that point, and this was my dream company from childhood.

What more can you ask for! I prepared in full and attended the interview. I was offered the job right away. But due to some personal reasons, I could not join that company, which shattered me again. However, looking at the bright side, I continue to do my internship, and now I am in a better place. It could have been much worse. I owe it all to my Guru, who has never let go of me even when I let go of him due to my own weaknesses.

This is how a Guru takes care of his children. We are very lucky and blessed to have a Guru like Mohanji. Trust me, many things/paths/people may seem far superior or even a faster path to liberation. But with my own experience from the roller-coaster life I have led for the last three years, I can say, “Mohanji will never forsake you if you believe in him”, and I vouch for this!

The answer

By Sreeja Ranjit, Ethiopia

Every silent prayer and our soul’s call reach our beloved Para Brahma and the Tradition. We get answers almost immediately…

I was very eagerly awaiting my visit to Kerala in January 2022. I wanted to be there for the Prathishta Dina Ceremony at the Shirdi Sai Baba Temple, Palakkad, and I was also waiting eagerly to meet Mohanji personally.

I had expected my visa formalities which happen every year, to be completed by the 1st week of January. Things did not go as planned, and I got it renewed only on 12th January. By then, flights to Cochin via Dubai had stopped due to the spread of omicron. Other routes cost triple the amount for just one way of the journey. 

The strict quarantine rules in Kerala for passengers from Africa made me very sad and disappointed as I knew I couldn’t go ahead with my plans in this scenario. I could not imagine why things had to go wrong when all I wanted was to be in my Guruji’s presence. Tears would overflow daily due to my expectations of being with Mohanji not being fulfilled.

On 11th January, I had the most beautiful dream of being in Mohanji’s presence. I got up in the morning feeling so happy. My heart was full of gratitude as Mohanji had spent so much time with me. He heard all my accounts on why I could not make the trip and spent a lot of time with me, patiently hearing me out. Then he suddenly disappeared. I was clueless why this happened. 

Yesterday, when I spoke to Savitri Vasudevan, she told me out of the blue that Mohanji had said to her that he astrally visits people who need him, and sometimes they see him in their dreams. I thought, my Goodness, I took so much of his time that Mohanji was delayed and had to leave immediately.

I was in bliss for a few days. But on 15th January, my mind started playing games with me again. Seeing the ceremony photos and Mohanji again, I felt sad that I could not be there. I was inconsolable, and tears would start flowing whenever I thought about this.

On the 17th morning, the first message I saw after waking up and opening facebook was the below message from Bhagawan Sathya Sai Baba about the Supreme Soul from Sandeha Nivarini, Chapter IX.

Swami: Oh, you have come! Well. What is the news?

Devotee: What other news do we have except yours? I heard that your Kerala tour was most pleasant and wonderful. I am sad that I was not destined to join.

Swami: Why are you sad about it? Listen to the account and be happy, that is all. Have the confidence and the hope that when such an opportunity next presents itself, you may be able to join. Don’t brood over the past.

I was shocked beyond words. It was a direct message for me; it said ‘Kerala tour’ as well! I read the message again and again. Baba answered me with so much clarity and in a stern and matter of fact manner, but also with a lot of love and affection.

Immediately, all my sadness and disappointments left me. I was beaming with happiness. I thought I would read a few Mohanji blogs for posting on the Mohanji Consciousness FB page, and this was the first message from Mohanji that came to me to read:

“If you really love something, there will be a pleasant, consistent connection. It will be a connection forever, very pleasant, loving and without expectation. Then you are not looking at him and judging, “Oh, is he looking at me? Is he smiling?” Whether he smiles or cries, it just doesn’t matter; the connection is forever. When you are stable and mature in your own inside, your connection outside also reflects that.”

Love Mohanji.

Again, it was a revelation and a clear message to have a clear, consistent connection without expectations. After all, wanting to be in physical proximity of a Master was also an expectation. When time is destined, even that will happen. Tears of deep gratitude started flowing again. 

Thank you, Mohanji. Koti koti pranaams at your lotus feet. I have no words but deep gratitude in my heart to my beloved Baba and Mohanji for always being with us and guiding us every time we falter.

Grace flows

By Ruchika Gandhi, India

Unpredictable times

I don’t know how to start and what to share. The last few months from February 2021 have been crazy with so many turbulences; what shook us as a family was the sudden deterioration in our mother’s health condition. She was diagnosed with the rarest of diseases we had never heard of. Autoimmune ILD (interstitial lungs disease), polymyositis (autoimmune muscles condition) combined with type two diabetes she has been suffering with for many years, landed with a cardiac episode the day she was admitted to the hospital on 26th Feb’ 2021 midnight. 

Throughout these 9.5 months, the entire family has gone through different stages of emotions. I wanted to share what I felt during this toughest phase of our lives but never got that space and time to write it. As I am writing today about my experiences, she is once again in the hospital on ventilator support; this is her eighth visit. 

My dad’s passing in 2017 was also sudden. We were not prepared for it at all. I was not that strong and stable at that moment to handle it. Mother’s difficult time started after my dad’s passing. She lost interest in life and has been holding so much within since then. It was extremely painful for her to lose a loved one, as we can see on a physical level. But despite being such a difficult phase for us, these nine months have also been full of Grace and Gratitude

What you can’t handle, just give it to your Guru and don’t look back… have faith. 

I have experienced many times, how Mohanji whom I lovingly call Father, and Shirdi Baba have worked unimaginably to give her all the strength to work out her karmas in this lifetime itself. 

She was very critical when admitted for the first time on 26th Feb 2021 and went on ventilator support for two months. I spoke to Mohanji that day, and he said that she doesn’t have any interest in life further. We don’t want to drag the soul, but we will see. 

His words didn’t scare me but made my eyes wet. I felt some kind of acceptance within. Let thy will be done which is meant for her highest good. Until now, I am praying only for that, as being ignorant of the divine play, I cannot ask selfishly anything better than this for my mother, who has lovingly served us for all these years.

Mohanji and Baba made me experience how they have taken upon themselves so much of the sufferings she was meant to go through in this life. She got the bed numbers 18 the first time, then 9, then 11. These numbers are signs of his presence for me.

Baba’s little idol was given once to Mumma when she was in the ICU; we told her to hold Baba in her hands and pray to him with all her heart. After some days, I noticed that Baba’s idol was broken from the neck. That was the day I realized that Baba shared my mother’s pain in his usual way.

You are being held every moment; just surrender and have faith. Mohanji works through many beings to strengthen you and allows you to receive and perceive situations with positivity. 

Throughout the initial period of her hospitalization, I felt stability within. I don’t know what was driving me and helped me witness what she went through at the hospital, and then later at the care centre where Mumma and I spent 5.5 months together. This stability was nothing but Mohanji’s energy that kept me going and didn’t allow my emotions to influence me so much as would have happened otherwise when we operate from an emotional level.

Kirti Khandelwal played an important role in just being available every moment for my and Mumma’s healing sessions. Important reminders were sent through her, Duggal di and other practitioners to face reality with full acceptance and awareness and allow Mumma’s journey to be smoother by not being attached emotionally. To allow the soul to travel ahead smoothly.

During my recitation of Hanuman Chalisa at the hospital, I felt many times Mohanji’s presence in the form of stability, acceptance, surrender and a sense of faith in the doctors. Situations were tough, but Mohanji gave the strength to face it all. 

Mohanji put us in the hands of doctors who were genuinely concerned about my mother’s wellbeing, handled the case with all the precautions to ensure that she didn’t have to go through any unnecessary procedures, given the multiple health issues. 

The Divine Guidance will come… through various channels. 

It was only his sheer grace that Dr Harpeet Wasir silently worked behind the scenes and was in constant touch with Dr Pankaj Puri, the main treating doctor at Fortis Escorts, who has handled Mumma’s case, right from the beginning. Words will not be enough to describe how Dr Wasir extended all possible guidance, made the whole family understand the most tricky situations so sensibly, calmly and helped us to reinstate our faith that doctors are doing what is right for our mother.

His prompt support, guidance and love was another way for me to experience how Mohanji was speaking to me through him. I am also amazed at the role Dr Pankaj Puri played and supported us in many ways during multiple hospitalizations and beyond as well. I offer my deepest gratitude to him for always being there to take Mumma’s case under him and oversee everything on his own. 

Mai-Tri sessions and grace 

Countless Mai-Tri sessions by so many Mai-Tri practitioners – Preeti Duggal di, Kirti Khandelwal, Nirupama Chowdhary, Nimika, Viji di, Prajakta, Nikunj Naredi, Rekha Murali, Shubha and many others made me experience that it’s not just this life, but deep cleansing of many lifetimes of karmas of my mother have been taken care of. 

In one of the sessions, I was guided by Nirupama di to give some fabric to a transgender person in my mother’s name. That whole incident was blissful. I am grateful to Mohanji and Divine Mother for allowing me to have her darshan in human form. I bought a beautiful light green color cloth, got it hand-touched by my mother, and then went out for seva at the animal centre. After the seva, I was on a rickshaw for my way back home; out of nowhere, a transgender person appeared near my rikshaw wearing the same color that I bought to offer. She said something in a different language (which I could not understand at all) and did some expressions with her hands. I bowed down and offered that cloth piece to her. She blessed me, touched the top of my head and disappeared immediately. But I felt Mother Kali appeared to bless and said, “Chinta mat karo” (don’t worry). It was a beautiful experience. Mother’s eyes were so bright and intense.

In another session, Mohanji and the whole Tradition were present and blessed my mother. I was in awe when Nirupama di shared that Mohanji gave Mumma Shaktipat. She also said to play Nirvanshaktam. I played it continuously and experienced that whatever Mumma was going through at that moment had been put to rest. The intensity of that physical suffering had been reduced immensely, as Mumma became more silent after that. I felt deep peace on her face and the way she was responding to the different health conditions she was going through.

Only compassion flows through my beloved Mohanji. We don’t need to ask for anything; he just gives without asking and blesses us every moment. Even at the hospital currently, she looks more calm, peaceful. She doesn’t have much to say; she is in total acceptance. 

Dr Puri said that “I have seen many cases in my career, but I have never seen a patient so calm going through such severe health issues.” Mohanji and Baba’s presence has been there every moment. I felt it when I flowed with my emotions sometimes and felt painful within to see Mumma going through such intense times.

A reminder, a thought that not to let emotions play havoc on me, to just watch them. Play your part well with all honesty, selflessness and surrender and give her love, serve in her name as much as possible. Face reality with full awareness and acceptance. This is Mohanji’s way to bring me back to the TRUTH. 

Mother is the highest form of the Divine, who serves her children unconditionally. 

Today, I realized that Mumma had given all of us, the entire family, a big opportunity to serve her in any way possible. To release us all from the karmic bond that we share together for lifetimes. Her invisible contribution, grace, and grit to fight, especially during this time, are experiences that I take as a blessing; my humble gratitude to my mother for allowing me to serve her and for being with us.

These unforgettable moments got all the sisters to be together at this time, especially during Covid, when travel around the world is restricted. It’s his sheer grace only that Mohanji allowed us to be together and do our dharma. I offer all that has been done till now and that I will be allowed to do in the time to come at his lotus feet. 

My humble pranaams to Mohanji, Shirdi Baba, Hanuman ji, Mother Kali, Lord Krishna.. they are all one. My heart, my whole being, offers deepest gratitude and love to the Supreme Divine for everything. For sending Mohanji into my life, for sowing the seed of knowing human existence beyond human mind limitations, for igniting the bhaav of seva, devotion, love for the Supreme Divine, for being able to experience him in so many beautiful ways. And also for not being able to experience anything at times, as those moments are reminders for me that I have many, many miles to go still to understand the real TRUTH. Every moment of ignorance is a moment of igniting that LIGHT within, shedding of EGO and crossing the oceans of heavy karmic baggage. 

Thank you, Mohanji, for everything. Thank you, Mohanji family, for standing with us, for sending your prayers, healings and financial contribution through Ammucare and thanks to our friends, family and relatives for their prayers and blessings. I am grateful to every being for supporting my mother and all of us silently. Love you all.

Empowered by Mohanji – 1

By Subhasree Thottungal, UK

11 Days with Mohanji! Yes, we have just finished one of the most amazing workshops with Mohanji – “Empowered, The journey from fear to freedom.”

Nearly 900 people attended this program with Mohanji. Many have been connected to Mohanji for some time and others for the first time. But by the end of 11 days, everyone was mesmerised by the power of this program.

Today, I am going to share my own experience, my journey of this program, from a different angle than the participants. But before I do so, I convey my deepest gratitude to Mohanji for giving me the opportunity to experience all that I am going to share now and allowing me to witness that I did.

So here I begin.

On 20th August night, Chris (Christopher Greenwood, Mohanji’s Executive Assistant) gave me a call and said, Mohanji would like to do a 21-day event himself and that he would like the event to start from 23rd! Wow, that was some news! We all know, Mohanji would not say anything just like that. We were going to announce another global Acharya program for the end of the month, so this sudden decision from Mohanji was surely for a higher purpose. But I didn’t have much more clarity on how and what.

The next morning we had a call with Mohanji, and then he gave clear instructions, 11 days, one and half hours every day of deep processes, and he will himself conduct it, every day! Wow! I was zapped. I had to pinch myself and even asked Mohanji, “You will do the process, Mohanji? Every day?” “Yes,” came the answer. Unbelievable! 11 days, every day! Mohanji had also given this instruction to Madhu (Madhusudan, CEO of Mohanji Foundation). After the clear instructions, we then went away to do our homework of what preparation, planning execution etc. The program couldn’t start in two days, but he agreed for it to start in about ten days, so the 2nd September date was finalised.

Ten days is nothing! We knew hundreds of people would come, not just from Mohanji global family, even from outside too. Who will not like to take advantage of such a golden opportunity? But it was also our duty to make sure that we conveyed the details of the program properly and on time and to far and wide. Mohanji’s speed, his precision, his perfection! We were all on a roll!

We had to make sure to reach far and wide, and we also had to ensure the program could cater to a large audience, probably the largest so far! While Mohanji would deliver the program himself, we needed to ensure that we had the right technical support in every sense, technology, translations, communication etc., the list wasn’t a small one. And we had only ten days in hand!

Well, just a month back, the Festival of Consciousness in Belgrade was also organised in just three weeks! So the team by now knows the speed at which things will need to happen, and all we need to do is flow!

Soon the day arrived. 2nd September, the commencement of the EMPOWERED 11-Day event with Mohanji! We were prepared with the simultaneous translations (in 6 languages), webinar set to handle more than 900 participants, audio-video equipment etc. We had been rehearsing for a few days earlier. That morning, Madhu, Chris and I discussed about the opening of the program, who would start with the intro. Both of them suggested I do so. Not something that I was expecting, but well, if that’s what is needed, I would do so, I said to myself. The program opened, it was overwhelming as many people were meeting Mohanji for the first time.

Mohanji didn’t waste a moment; his delivery to almost 700 people on the live webinar session that time uniquely addressed everyone and made sure that every person was receiving it as per their frequency. It was not a “one size fits all” way; but customised uniquely. That session, of course, I was hovering between the six language rooms in the webinar to see if all translators were comfortable doing their work.

By the time the session finished, I had a feeling of bubbles rising from molten lava, molten lava, within each participant. That’s when I realised, Mohanji was not just imparting knowledge through his talks, but there was a much different impact at the energy level for everyone; that’s what I was witnessing. I was feeling the bubbling, emerging hot molten lava.

The next day, as soon as Mohanji came, looking at him, there was a sharp light from his 3rd eye. Suddenly, I got flashes in my left eye. Usually, I get flashes in my eyes when I am about to get a migraine, which grows unbearable if I don’t take a painkiller!

I was already sitting in front of Mohanji with the video on, so I couldn’t get up for a headache pill. I tried to ignore it and kept focusing on Mohanji and listening to him. But the brightness was growing, and I couldn’t keep my eyes open anymore. I closed my eyes and just concentrated on Mohanji’s 3rd eye. Almost after 30 min, I felt normal and opened my eyes, and yes, I was normal, no headache. I then realised that flash in my left eye was not because of my usual migraine; I was witnessing the brightest glow in Mohanji’s presence.

The previous day’s inner awareness of the bubbles of molten lava and now this bright light confirmed to me that this online workshop with Mohanji was much beyond just a webinar teaching or discussion. Beyond words and explanations, Mohanji was working at the energy level, beyond the physical dimensions.

That day, Mohanji must have received thoughts and questions from many people, so before leaving the session after two hours, he said to the entire group to stay on and discuss, and he called out my name said, “Subhasree, please continue the discussion and question answers for some more time.”

This was a command coming from my Guru; I had no time to react to the surprise! The moment his words hit my ears, they hit my consciousness, I guess. What happened for the next 2 hours was magical. People were asking questions, and I was speaking… well not me, clearly Mohanji. I had no sensation of my body, my speech, my knowledge at that time. Words were flowing. When the session was over, there was an outpouring of appreciation messages from so many. From our internal group to participants, how they all felt that Mohanji was speaking through me!

The next day, during Mohanji’s live session, while I was concentrating on what Mohanji was teaching us, I noticed swelling in Mohanji’s face, especially in his left jaw area. Mohanji was constantly speaking, flowing spontaneously, with no sign of pain or uneasiness or anything like that. I felt that Mohanji was absorbing, taking on all those oozing bubbles from everyone… that’s his style of giving all of us protection while letting the deep cleansing process happen. I witnessed how Mohanji shields everyone, including me, and takes some of the effects on his physical body.

This day also Mohanji asked us to continue Q&A and discussion following his session, and we all would flow in his consciousness. I was feeling Mohanji’s presence in me. That time, I had no feeling of myself. The only awareness I had was that Mohanji was in me, driving the car, I was just holding the steering, and he was controlling everything, absolutely everything.

Every day, we started the session one hour earlier to test with the translators, then one and a half hours with Mohanji, followed by the discussion sessions for 2 hours afterwards. Usually, after the sessions, later in the evening, we had to complete some other tasks regarding communications, Q&A submitted by email or texts etc. And I also had my office work to do. So there was no counting of waking hours or food or other terrestrial things. My fingers, elbow, shoulder all would pain all night and be stiff when I woke up in the morning too. But as soon as I got ready and sat at the altar ready for the program, the 5 hours would pass like 5 minutes. I had the energy to work again till late in the night.

There were many hindrances, too, technical glitches, but none of these had any impact on the program. Problems were coming; they were dissolving. I felt as if we were doing an obstacle course running race. Obstacles appear; we jump over them and continue running.

As we were growing day by day, the effect of the deep process was getting more and more intense. Mohanji’s presence was evident. By making me anchor the sessions in his presence and the discussion session after he left, Mohanji had given me a different awareness, the awareness that Mohanji was working directly through me. I was reminded of what Mohanji had told me recently when I was with him in Serbia. “I work through you directly, in real. I work through you in actual and in factual.” These words of Mohanji were still vivid in my head. I was witnessing this happening now.

I was feeling the Mpowerment. I felt immense gratitude for this; Mohanji had put an ordinary stone from the roadside as a crystal on the podium! I didn’t ask, “Why?” I didn’t ask, “Do I deserve it?” I only melted; I dissolved. I realised this ego, this identity called ‘Subhasree’, had no meaning because I was not operating from my own physical body. For me, this was an experience of merging with Mohanji, going beyond physical dimensions.

Mohanji had empowered me in such a way that my fatigue, my physical pain, my lack of knowledge, my incapability – nothing mattered. Because he was in me, he was directly performing. He gave me a tiny taster of his huge capacity.

My inner voice was crying, “I am nothing. I am nothing. I don’t exist, Mohanji. Please let me stay merged with you forever. I am a bundle of mistakes, weakness, and naivety; please let me melt in you and let these impurities burn totally.”

As our discussions were flowing every day, the attendees would give such sweet compliments that though I felt honoured and grateful, I also was embarrassed. I am not used to such compliments and that too for something that Mohanji was doing! But I also knew they were seeing Mohanji exactly as I was feeling.

With the growing praises and appreciation from people pouring for me, I had another realisation. I realised that what Mohanji had showered on me without me expecting consciously or asking for it must be a deep-lying desire from the past that he is fulfilling and thus exhausting it!

These realisations of how Mohanji was empowering me, protecting me, fulfilling my unrealised desires and probably removing my karma, allowing me to witness a tiny glimpse of his multi-dimension work on everyone else, had a deep impact on me; the impact of gratitude to this greatness, the grandeur of my Master, my Guru.

At this stage, all I wish is to just stay in that state of being merged with Mohanji forever.  

Thank you, Mohanji, for everything you do for all of us in so many truly indescribable ways. 

Love You! 

Mohanji – my friend, philosopher & guide and beyond that, a connection in consciousness!

Birthday blessings

By Rekha Murali, India

This year of the pandemic has been volatile yet transformative for most of us. We have all learnt to let go, accept life as is, adapt to the new ‘norm’. Amidst all this, we are still going through turmoil, upsets, emotional upheaval, and loss of possessions, positions and relationships.  

It was no different for me. The year did not begin well as I’d lost my dear brother-in-law to Covid, and it was not easy. I was helpless watching my sister go through the pain. I was also going through a state of helplessness, and fear crept in on the impermanence of life. Apart from these, there have been many more compelling tests that I am not comfortable articulating. I was being pulled into a vortex of emotions, although my dear Mohanji stood tall looking after me and guiding me. I was deeply involved in Acharya activities and was in a hyperactive mode flitting from one activity to another along with my regular work. This empowerment by Mohanji as an Acharya kept me going and I remained connected with my only source – Mohanji! I was steadfast and consistent with my Acharya work, was involved in all the global/country programs, and for Shivratri, conducted Conscious Gapless Breathing (CGB) for five days in a row. I mention this because it brought to the surface many pent up issues that needed clearing.

Soon, we fixed a date for my son’s marriage for the end of March. So I was in a flurry of activities, planning and organising the happy yet simple event amidst my other work. But I still found that I was emotionally being pulled down and would be in a frenzy in my alone time. I felt I was progressing very well as an Acharya, but at the same time, every few steps forward, I was also regressing a few steps backwards.

February dawned, and we (the testimonial team) had just finished editing the fourth volume of Guru Leela. I wrote a long message about my state to Mohanji, and I did not get any reply for the first time. Naturally, this upset me further, and I was in knots. The only thing that kept me going and balanced was the activities I was involved in. Keeping myself busy always gives me satisfaction, and that was the saving grace for me. I somehow did not share this state of affairs with anyone, knowing that Mohanji had my back and would walk with me. He is my all; every aspect of mine comes from him and merges into him.

It was also my birthday month, and 19th February 2021 was a memorable day etched in my heart forever. The previous day, I was in turmoil and extremely upset due to some personal issues and more than that, it was the culmination of the state of mind from previous months. CGB also aided in this process. Ultimately, I had a complete breakdown of sorts; I burst out crying amidst prayers to Mohanji to help overcome this mind and its affairs.

After the tremendous release through this bout of crying, I recognised that it would not help me and that I would have to pull myself up and approach everything with a positive outlook. Setting the alarm for 4:30 am, I tried to sleep and promised myself a good birthday year ahead. I promised myself a fresh start, pressing the reset button. Adding to this, I heard the delightful news that Mohanji wanted to speak with me. He was in Mumbai preparing for his trip to Turkey.

With barely any sleep, I woke up cheerfully to do my kriya and my other practices. The kriya practice was powerful and a huge cleansing experience. I felt the blessings of Mohanji, and I received a download of some verses in Tamil (a regional language of India), which took me by surprise. I quickly noted it down after completing my kriya. I want to share that I am not proficient in this language, and I can only read and speak. The words were new to me, but I wrote them down in English to not forget.

Mohanji listening to the song

This was indeed my first birthday gift for the day as these verses were soon transformed into a beautiful song by our dear Manaswini and converted into a lovely video by Neelu Vepu with the blessings of Mohanji. Here is the link to the song with the meaning of the verses given as subtitles.

I was in a positive, happy frame of mind with a blissful feeling of Mohanji’s presence within me and a heart filled with gratitude. Soon, I got a text message from Subhasree that Guru Leela 4 was officially released by Mohanji and that I would get a signed copy of it. The book reached me precisely a month later (19th March). It was such a huge blessing. My second birthday gift!

Unfortunately, by mid-morning, I developed a severe migraine out of the blue. It was a raging tsunami, and I could just about pray to Mohanji for help, request for a Mai-Tri from dear Shyama and crash between bouts of vomiting and crying. At that point, it did not matter if Mohanji would call or not because my physical pain caused by the mind had taken complete control. Tossing and turning, every sane moment was a plea for help to Mohanji!

The biggest blessing of all was yet to come. Early in the evening, I was praying to Mohanji to take me away when I was at my worst physically, and the thought sprang up, “I am born alone and will die alone.” I brushed it aside, thinking it was a play of the mind, a mind wallowing in self-pity and loneliness.

Just then, my phone rang, and I heard the familiar, deep and loving voice at the other end apologising for not calling in the morning. It was a call I had been waiting for, and Mohanji’s voice was a balm for the tired soul. 

Tears flowed, and I don’t remember if he even wished me for my birthday or if he knew. All that I remember was saying thank you and the message he conveyed. He told me I could ask him one question, and as usual, I had none at that time, but he kept speaking.

“You are born alone and will die alone. You don’t have anyone in this life. You have earned me in this life. Stay connected with me, and I will take care of you.”

Mohanji

He also removed my anxieties regarding my son, “Your son is a fine young man, and you let him be. Be grateful to him for choosing you as his mother.”

He apologised for not messaging me earlier as he wanted to speak with me and said that he had telepathically sent messages in the morning. As usual, the dunce that I am, I could not recognise it, and when I told him, he said, “Doesn’t matter, it will reveal itself.” I wished him the best for his trip to Turkey.

I went straight to bed soon after in a daze and, after the wonderful Mai-Tri by Shyama, had a fitful sleep.

The next day was a rebirth for me – A new I! I wondered why Mohanji called me on that day and soon realised a connection was made to remove something from deep within me. I weighed myself that morning and found I’d lost two kgs overnight! Indeed a visible sign of his blessings!

The few minutes had probably removed lifetimes of karma. Subsequently, vivid dreams in the past few months have revealed how Mohanji has broken some unknown patterns of lifetimes which I would have never been aware of otherwise! Through this, he has assured me that I am on the path of liberation.

This entire experience was a lesson on stability, having shaken me from the roots. Staying stable, steadfast with conviction and staying connected with the source was the key. (Incidentally, this blog is also being published on 19th.)

Every wish that I have is continually being fulfilled, however subtle or commonplace it may be. He has given me everything, yet my heart yearns for his physical presence, although I am strongly connected with his consciousness. 

Kya Karein! Yeh Dil Maange More! (What to do! This heart asks for more!)

My heartfelt gratitude to you, dear Mohanji, for never leaving my hand!

A new birth after death

by Sita, Netherlands

Since Mohanji visited our Gopal Baba’s ashram in 2018, I followed him on several Facebook groups. I became more and more impressed by how much he does and initiates worldwide.

In spring, I came in touch with Subhasree from London. In one of our conversations, I told her, it feels so good what you all are doing. It makes me happy, but I think I cannot join. I feel Sathya Sai as my father, Gopal Baba as my mother. I can’t change my loving spiritual divine parents. But maybe Mohanji can be a brother, holding my hand when I miss my parents too much. (Gopal Baba left his body in June 2020, and I still often feel so sad.) Subhasree laughed and said, “Sita, when you feel like this, it will be like that for you!” I smiled inwardly; surely, it couldn’t be that easy.

That night Mohanji appeared in my dream and told me that we are his children and we would always be welcome in his family. I woke up, deeply touched and surprised. Could it really be this simple? Anyhow, I did feel less sad and more energized.

The following day, I contacted Subhasree again and told her about my dream. I believe in giving back, so I asked if I could help with something. A few weeks passed, and I was added to a team to edit a book on Mohanji. I really liked doing that and learned a lot from this book. Also, I recognized much in the experiences of the writer (Mina). Eric, who lives in Canada, was managing a Facebook page for Mohanji Netherlands in the editing team. We had some nice spiritual conversations, and suddenly he asked if I would like to help him? Of course, I said yes. 

Another dream happened. Now Mohanji gave me some clear instructions about daily yoga practice. Again the early morning found me grateful and full of energy. With every dream, joy and happy expectation took the place of former sadness.

Not even a week passed, and Eric said we need someone in the Netherlands to help start a new group of people, and I think you can help with that too. Now doubts started to raise their ugly heads, and I was confused. Could I do this? Didn’t this mean I left my Guru? Both Eric and Chris helped me to cross this river of doubt. I prayed a lot, and a friend from India suggested I pray, ask and open Sri Sai Satcharitra.

This came up: Chapter XXXV. 

You do away, destroy the Teli’s wall (sense of difference) between us so that we can see and meet each other face to face.

A weight was lifted from my heart. The next day at the Sai temple, I had my first experience of feeling Mohanji’s energy as well as Sai Baba and Gopal Baba’s. It was so wide, welcoming and blissful. Feeling grateful for all these confirmations, I prayed to Baba; please give me a rose to bless my new adventure in life. Kannaiah picked up a rose that had fallen from Baba after bhajan. He took the rose in his hand and threw it immediately in my lap. My tears flowed easily that Sunday, feeling wonder and very grateful.

A few days later, my grandson Krishna came running into our house and said, Daddy and Mummy are coming with my sisters; we have a surprise. Daddy prayed, and we cried together. Needless to say, this made me curious. Sure enough, a little later, the complete family bounced into our living room. Our son-in-law said, “You know, Sita, I discovered something so good and amazing; I discovered Mohanji! I only watched his videos; I started to do the meditations, and everything changes!”

Really? Apart from us, they too were touched by all Mohanji teaches and does for humanity. 

The next day, Mina and Christopher welcomed my husband and me in the start-up team for the Netherlands and my children too! As soon as this welcoming zoom call was over, we received a message from Christopher that Mohanji had plans to come to Holland. This was Friday evening, 30th July. We were over the moon but expected this visit to be next spring. Saturday 31st July, he sends a message that they might arrive on 5th August!!! I was in total shock, a happy one, but still, shock.

It all depended on the arrival in time of Mohanji’s passport, which had been renewed and was on its way back. Ha! That one was familiar to me. Every visit of Swami Gopal Baba to the Netherlands had been a chance for the Masters to test our faith by the last-minute arrival of the needed papers to travel from India. So I decided to ignore this little drama and simply started to organize. 

For sure, I needed the help of the Sai temple, but Kannaiah, the leader of the temple, had at first his doubts as I had. We are so attached to our Gopal Baba. But on Sunday night, 1st August, Kannaiah felt he could whole-heartedly invite Mohanji to the Sai temple, which was wonderful for we had had quite some training with Swami’s stay in Holland in 2001, 2004, 2014 and 2019. He sent Mohanji a beautiful video invitation, and Mohanji said he would be happy to come.

The following days passed like a happy dream, creating an opportunity for Mohanji to speak in a church and the many little things that come with making a program. Mohanji arrived on 6th August, a fresh, sunny day. We went to the airport to welcome Mohanji, who I had met only in my dreams. The moment my eyes met his, I was simply happy, so happy. It felt like coming home after a long walk through the desert. 

More than one year had passed, a year in which I had been so incredibly sad. Sure I had tried to be happy again, I really tried hard! But there had always been a cloud before the sun. Only when he visited me in my dream, I felt a little consoled but then waking up was death again.

Now, at the airport, in just a fraction of a minute, a cloud was lifted from my heart. Mohanji’s eyes smiled at me, and my heart smiled back. 

On 11th August, we waved Mohanji and the wonderful team goodbye at the airport. Only five days had passed; it can’t be true; it felt like five weeks. My heart was so full; I don’t remember it could hold so much love. Or maybe my heart is stolen, and only the light is left. 

My head is full of all the teachings, sometimes deep, sometimes little bits like snacks, sometimes confronting, other times soothing. It is just one wonderful, fantastic dream, a dream no one could even imagine. Yes, I must be dreaming! But please don’t wake me up. Thank you, Sai, thank you, Gopal Baba, thank you, Mohanji, for so much grace and blessings.

-Your daughter and sister Sita

Speaking the truth

By Mina Obradovic, Serbia

During the time spent with Mohanji, a couple of important thoughts related to what we believe in popped up in my mind. Since I come from the Balkans, I know that Gurus are not easily accepted in our region. Here, I will not go into the importance of Gurus and why, but from my experience, no spiritual practice or ‘direct connection with God’ is enough to reach the highest human potential.

Through the years that I have been with Mohanji, I have met various people with different motives around him. A common problem with people is that they do not have enough courage to say that they love, respect or follow Mohanji. By doing this, no one loses but them. Especially Mohanji, he loses nothing. He was born with a purpose, and when that purpose is done, he will leave this Earth.

Between his physical birth and death, there is his life that exists for us. A Guru provides a long rope, but it is up to us to grab it and, with determination, climb to the top. We cannot expect the Guru to stand at the end of the rope and encourage us to walk. Maybe he will do that, and if he does, it is a blessing, but it can also happen that the Guru tells us exactly the opposite. We will certainly come across various tests. 

A similar thing happened to me with Mohanji. Connecting with him was not easy at all. I was not particularly encouraged to approach him; he would often ask me, “What are you doing with me? I am an ordinary man with a beard. You are mistaken if you think I have powers.” I would laugh at every such word of his because I knew who he was.

I have already experienced him and watched him closely for years, and no one and nothing in this world can now change my opinion of him – not even himself. That is why now, after more than four years, I can experience true and significant transformations in my life because of him. But this did not happen overnight. 

Unless we stay with the Guru experiencing the ‘mud’, we will never experience the ‘gold.’ Suppose we are easily shaken by external factors, our innate doubts and prejudices and our tendency to blame others. In that case, if we don’t bother to open our eyes to what is in front of us, we will never get anything from anyone, even the most powerful Guru that can exist.

The true signs of the path we are walking on are always very subtle, and the ‘denser’ levels of existence always distract us more. I liked how Mohanji explained this point while talking about the holy mountain Arunachala, in Tiruvannamalai, in India. Many people do not know how powerful Arunachala is and that it is not really just a mountain. It is a very powerful energy centre from which we can experience great benefits if we are open to it. 

From the outside, it looks so ordinary. It is covered with stones and nature. If an ordinary person passes by it, he may never know its power. However, people who have reached a certain level of consciousness see Arunachala as a huge portal to the energetic (to us, invisible) world, where very powerful Masters live, who are not in their physical bodies.

The Arunachala Hill

They live energetically in the mountain’s interior, and many Masters and Saints have seen them inside, with their inner eye. They do not reveal themselves to people often, but they live for our good and often help humanity. Setting foot on this mountain is a blessing in itself, and it is said that there is not a single negative particle on it. They say that every person who steps on it has to be ‘approved’ by Masters from the mountain’s interior. So, not everyone gets the opportunity to set foot on this revered mountain if not allowed.

Although we know the power of this mountain, its external appearance is not at all interesting. Mohanji says, “They have set up all sorts of distractions around the mountain – selling food, drinks, offering entertainment, etc., so you can’t easily wonder at this mountain and discover its power.”

I would describe a true Guru in the same way. The subtle signs of who he is, our journey, and our destination are visible only to those who “have the eyes to see”. Not everyone will dare to look, and even fewer will stand by the Guru despite the sceptical world.

Because of certain past lives that I accidentally found out about, until recently, I often had the fear that someone would beat me up and kill me because I had a Guru. The first time I felt that fear, I failed to understand it fully. Over time, it became clear to me. 

Months after I first felt this fear, I met Mohanji and said that I often see in my visions a mass of people approaching me to kill me. This fear arose mainly during my endeavours to write about my path.

At that time, I had a deadline to finish blogs in which I talked about my experiences with Jesus and Mohanji, and out of fear, I could not continue writing. I knew the blog needed to be published, but subconsciously, fear prevented me. Without my conscious control, it caused me fatigue, confusion, things that would stop me from finishing it.

I was sad because I wanted to finish that text for a long time. When I asked him, Mohanji confirmed that the fear came from a past life experience and that he will make sure to remove it so that I feel free. Over the next few months, the fear intensified and then disappeared.

Despite this fear, I never distanced myself from Mohanji, I never hid the truth that he is the source of oxygen in my life, and I never lost sight of my intention to finish the blogs. I knew I didn’t want to live a life of fear, and every time fear came to the surface, I would think, “The worst that can happen is that someone really beats me up, and I die. One day, I’m sure to die.” I decided that I would rather die living what I believe in, with Mohanji, no matter how much someone doesn’t understand it, than live longer like a coward, in fear.

Of course, I assumed that my life wouldn’t really end in a couple of days, ha-ha, but I deliberately created such an image in my head to know my priority. It gave me clarity. Also, although it may sound mild, the fear was really intense, and my reality was sometimes such that someone would knock on my door any minute to kill me.

No matter how deep my fear was, and no matter that I had indeed been killed in a past life for a similar thing, I was not interested in people and their opinions. I felt fear in my stomach area until Mohanji completely removed it; it was there, but that never stopped me from courageously saying who is behind my transformation, who is responsible for the quality of my life. Just as I am never ashamed to say that my mother and father are responsible for my life, I will also never hesitate to speak the truth of what Mohanji is to me; there is no fear or a desire to be accepted by superficial people.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that I go down the street and talk about the details of my spiritual journey with everyone, but it is clear what credits in my life go to Mohanji. It is not ‘divine energy’ or ‘universal energy’; it is Mohanji. Whoever asks me, I will always answer directly. I do not hesitate to say this, and no one who walks the path of spirituality should hesitate if he has such an experience, of course.

Another way I dealt with this fear was by connecting to the past lives that I received long ago. In that life, I left my Guru for silly reasons like these and then bitterly repented. It was clear to me that there was nothing more important to me than my connection with Mohanji, and even though I often don’t see him physically, the ‘bridge’ to him that I always keep stable gives me oxygen despite all the storms.

I told this story because even if we have a huge fear, and if everything around us seems to be collapsing, and if society labels us as crazy, having a Guru is our whim and fashion, etc., we ALWAYS have an option. If we truly understand the importance of our connection, NOTHING can get us off that track.

That is why it is important to take as much time as we need to understand the path we are walking, but once we make the decision, we should not leave or stay half-heartedly. If other people’s opinions are more important than what we experienced first hand (even if it’s about our friend, partner, business associate), then we have no face. We have no integrity. 

That’s why it is strange to me when people hear something about a person they personally know and love, sometimes they don’t go to that person to check if the rumour is true, but they are in a hurry to make a decision based on someone’s opinion or experience, which often has nothing to do with the truth. Again, this is no one’s loss but ours alone.

Our integrity decreases with this behaviour; we lose our personality. Our self-confidence also decreases because our whole life begins to depend on other people. It’s like asking our life to walk on two match-sticks. If someone takes away one of the matches because they decided they don’t like it, our world collapses. We must be careful in whose hands we place our stability.

The important thing I also learned from my time with Mohanji is that the path of spirituality is mostly unknown and unpredictable. In the beginning, no one promised me how far I would get or that I would get anything from this path. That courage in us to dive into the unknown because we have enough clarity to see subtle signs and believe in our own experience is our integrity. If we ignore any evidence that our path is what we want and start believing in the ‘dense’ aspects of this world that are much more talked about and much less important, we will lose a lot. 

The truth is always before our eyes, but distractions and our tendency to cling to negativity are habits. It will always be more interesting for us to gossip, talk about other people’s money, about who sleeps with whom. We will then die one day with regret for wasting time on such unimportant things, when we could focus on ourselves and reach the highest level of consciousness, explore our possibilities, talents, achieve something that will help the world around us, helpless beings, etc. 

That is why Mohanji says, “People bring flowers to the cemetery because they could not give that person love while they were alive.” But why are we doing this? If someone dies, we can be sad, that’s fine, but if we said the right words at the right time and did the best we could when it was needed, there will be very little or no remorse. 

What is it that distracts us every day? If it’s fear, why don’t we dare face it? Why do we lose precious connections because of other people’s opinions? My opinion is that if we really believe in ourselves, we will never try to hide our truth, not even a little.
