The Lord of the Lions – The Truth

Mohanji with lion cubs

By Rekha Murali

“If you want to grow spiritually, root in EXPERIENCE, not in words, not in theories.” – Mohanji

I learnt the value of these words only through my experiences. As I connect with Mohanji more and more, I realise that it is the experiences that help me understand my spiritual growth. Experiences abound every day but how aware am I of these experiences? How much faith do I have to recognise these experiences as a blessing through the grace of the Master? Pain or pleasure, is it not learning? Is it not a dilution of the pre-destined karma? I bow to Mohanji, resting my head at His feet in complete surrender, with a humble prayer to remove what is not essential for me!

Each day of the past four years has brought forth so many experiences, some very minuscule and some so huge that it has shaken me out of my stupor. Some made me realise the depth of my connection with Mohanji, while others made me doubt Him. But since 2017, there has been a great shift within me, recognising the greatness of my Guru and I am now able to completely accept Him with deep devotion and faith! There may be tests in the journey but now I have the confidence the compassion incarnate Para Brahma is walking with me helping me jump over the hurdles with ease!

I now share with you an experience that showed me the invisible hand of the divine assuring me of protection and unconditional love. It showed me the true stature of my Guru, Mohanji! I felt His presence without presence deep within the core of my being!

The story begins…

On Mahashivratri, there were many miracles that took place at the ashram in South Africa. Reading the sharing by Swami Bhaktananda was mesmerising. Mohanji’s face in the picture had morphed into Lord Narasimha himself – the face of a lion! Lord Narasimha is the fourth of the ten primary incarnations (avatars) of Lord Vishnu, the Hindu God of preservation. The main purpose of the ten avatars was to restore cosmic order.

Going back to my story, I was overwhelmed by reading the beautiful write-up and wondered at the power of the lion-faced God – known as Narasimha or Narasingha. Singha in Sanskrit means lion. The next evening I sat down for my Consciousness Kriya (CK) practice. Those were the days when tears would roll down my cheeks for no apparent reason and during the practice of CK, I would weep buckets. At that time, I was also being initiated into the Mai-Tri Method and so a lot of baggage from my sub-conscious mind was getting cleared. I was being churned inside out by Mohanji! Kriya and Mai-Tri are a wonderful combination of cleansing. But that particular day, my Kriya session turned out to be different and specially blessed!

A key aspect that I need to mention before I get into my story is about Consciousness Kriya. Since my initiation into (CK) in January 2018, I have been very regular with it. I just felt the need to do my practice every day although I could not see any visible changes initially. Slowly I realised the depth of this practice. Initially, the changes were very subtle but soon, the experiences became more visible. That started a stream of many beautiful experiences, revelations etc. CK is such a priceless technique that enhances the practitioner’s communion with the Masters directly. It opens you up completely to the Consciousness and the connection with your Guru and Tradition deepens. I was not aware of this for a long time although I have had visions of great Masters and received many answers through various sources during Kriya. Sometimes it would just appear as a thought in my head! Kriya has opened up so many dimensions within me that I could have never imagined possible. First and foremost, it has helped me connect with Mohanji’s consciousness so deeply. Blessings abound everywhere and it is this sacred practice that helps me to be aware of it! Immense gratitude to Mohanji for opening this unknown part within me through this beautiful gift of Kriya!

So, while doing Kriya after Mahashivratri, I connected strongly with Mohanji’s consciousness and the tears started unabated. Along with my crying, I was aware of each step of Kriya and followed it diligently. Suddenly my breath increased in speed and I was gasping with the tears flowing incessantly. In a flash, I had a beautiful, inner vision (in my mind’s eye) of the most compassionate, the most beautiful face of a lion. The face was lit up with the loveliest of smiles and had the most gentle eyes. I quickly looked down and saw a human body along with the face of the lion. The lower portion was adorned with a beautiful yellow silk dhoti with a reddish magenta silk shawl draped around the waist. A word popped in my head – “Lakshmi Narasimha”, although I could not see Lakshmi. Normally Narasimha has his consort Lakshmi on his lap. My hands automatically joined together in Namaste.

I was dazed and I felt waves of bliss. By then the Insight Timer beeped and I jumped out of my skin still crying. They were tears of joy and devotion. I sensed that the divine had appeared to bless me. I thanked Mohanji for this beautiful experience and relived the vision again and again in a state of bliss.

As usual, later on, the mind started doubting the entire episode. Was I hallucinating? Was my mind playing tricks because of the blog by Swami Bhaktananda? I looked at Mohanji’s picture and questioned Him too. I remembered Mohanji comment that every experience we have is our own.

I did share this with some members of the Mohanji family and a couple of dear friends. The comments I received were mostly ‘beautiful’ or ‘awesome’. I could not receive any clear answers or assurances for my lingering doubts. I was not sure if this was for real. But I could also very vividly remember the whole vision and I would tear up thinking about it. My body would indicate the truth of the vision.

Mohanji on experiences

 

The first confirmation…

Finally, Mohanji Himself chose to give me the answers. He soon put my mind to rest through Devi Amma. Devi Amma is a highly evolved spiritual Master and a disciple of Sage Agastya Muni. Whenever I pose questions to Mohanji, I always get clear answers from someone and this time I was blessed to get my confirmation from Devi Amma herself. Again, I attribute this to CK, as it has helped me physically be in touch with this Divine Master, Devi Amma. Moreover, Devi Amma and Mohanji are so deeply connected and they always speak as one. For me, speaking to Devi Amma is akin to being in the presence of Mohanji! I sense the same happiness, and gentleness that I experience in Mohanji’s presence. Both of them shower me with the same unconditional love and compassion. So, two days after the vision, it so happened that I got a chance to speak with Devi Amma out of the blue.

Devi Amma
An embodiment of Love

As we were speaking, I described this vision to her and asked her if I was hallucinating. She then explained the beautiful reason behind the vision assuring me that Lord Narasimha had indeed appeared to bless me. My hair stood on end and tears flowed. Devi Amma explained that Narasimha is the most compassionate of all avatars of Vishnu and He appears when a person is going through a lot of internal turmoil and stress. She explained that I’d bottled up all the emotions within and appeared cheerful on the outside. So he had appeared to relieve me of the burdens that I was carrying deep within, cleansing me, of which I may not be even aware of. She mentioned that it was happening because of my deep connection with my Guru. I was thrilled to hear this as I had seen the same compassion and love in Mohanji’s eyes, as I had in the vision. I felt extremely light in my heart and was full of gratitude to Devi Amma as she had in her beautiful way filled me with her unconditional love. I sent a silent prayer of thanks to Mohanji too and I felt extremely overwhelmed. Masters have spoken to me directly and have shown me that they are with me. This physical validation was because of CK which enables direct communication with masters.

My second confirmation…

That night passed peacefully and I was happy with myself. A couple of days later, (it was a Friday), I got further confirmation on the reality of this vision. It so happened that a distant relative whom I am not in touch with called me. After a general discussion, as a religious person, he started speaking about temples and Gods and he mentioned that he had been thinking about talking to me that very morning about Lord Narasimha! I shared with him my vision and he immediately mentioned that my maternal grandfather was as an ardent devotee of Narasimha and it was a genuine blessing from the Lord. This was my second confirmation. There was a lineage connection here as well, my grandfather being a devotee.

And the third one…

Soon after that, my husband and I left on a holiday to a nearby town (Pondicherry). We planned a visit to a temple of Ram on the way. I immediately sent a humble prayer to the Lord himself… My request was that if the vision was true, I would see the idol of Narasimha in the temple dressed in the colours that had appeared in my vision…yellow dhoti with the reddish magenta wrap!

After we worshipped the main idol and walked around, we came across another deity called Sudarshana. My eyes lit up immediately and with heart pounding, I went quickly to view the back of the Sudarshana idol. The reason for this is because, in all South Indian temples, the back portion of the Sudarshana idol has an idol of Narasimha sitting cross-legged in yoga and is popularly known as Yoga Narasimha!

Lo and behold! I turned the corner and saw that the Yoga Narasimha was dressed in a yellow dhoti with a magenta cloth draped around his waist. Normally in such temples, I have always seen the deities dressed only in white dhotis. The Sudarshana idol was also dressed in a white dhoti. I was stunned and with tears flowing, I prostrated with gratitude and surrender. This was clear proof of the vision that I had during CK. The colour of the clothes matched exactly with the vision. So the appearance of the divine during CK was a blessing indeed! What more could I ask for?

Experience and mind

The entire experience was truly enlightening and assurances were given in various ways till I was satisfied. We proceeded to our destination (a resort) and I was unaware of the other plans that Mohanji had in store for me. This was again a blessing! Looking at the beautiful lawn in the resort, a thought crossed my mind that it would be wonderful to do Conscious Walking here for the guests of the resort. Mohanji fulfilled that so easily by helping me approach the Events Manager who agreed immediately to my idea. I also suggested doing the Power of Purity meditation and within a matter of minutes, everything was finalised for the next day. Announcements were made and Mohanji ensured His presence without presence. During the Mohanji energy transfer, a participant felt someone standing next to her although I was nowhere near her. She also sensed a surge of energy, a tingling sensation in her body! It was the first time that she was doing a proper meditation!

 

Mohanji not only gave me the opportunity to conduct a POP meditation and Conscious walking for the guests of the resort, but He also ensured that every participant benefitted by it. Participants experienced the energy and bliss that everyone feels in the presence of Mohanji. Conscious Walking also had an enthusiastic group of participants and people were happy to have learnt something new during their holiday. They felt energised and were happy to take back something that they could practice at home on their own. He orchestrated everything and all that I had to do was just go with the flow.

Thank you, dear Mohanji, for the various tools such as Consciousness Kriya and the Mai-Tri Method to help me discard some of the deep-rooted karmic samskaras!

The patience with which Mohanji handled me, understanding my doubting, uncontrollable mind and sending me messages through various sources was astounding. He is always there holding my hand, guiding me on my path even if I am not aware of it. He is my Narasimha, wiping my tears, showering me with His love and compassion. Ever smiling and gentle, He lovingly puts my disturbed mind to rest and protects me through the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual upheaval. In this lifetime, my Narasimha is none other than Mohanji, who is compassionate incarnate. I always experience and see the same gentleness, unconditional love and compassion in Him that I saw in my vision of Lord Narasimha that day.

Dear Mohanji, I pray that you hold this Prahlada (devotee of Vishnu for whom he incarnated), your loving child close to you and never let go. On your shoulder, I merge into you with no worries and the faith that you as my Father, my Guru and My Narasimha will take me with you. You are Mohanji Narasimha!

Prahlada and Narasimha

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 8 – “A connection through time”

Mohanji

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 8  brings to you another beautiful story about the Guru. Meeta Sahai recounts her experiences of meeting Mohanji and the experiences that led her to consider Him to be her Guru. She then realised that this connection was older and deeper than she could ever imagine!

A connection through time

By Meeta Sahai, India

I first got to know about Mohanji when I read one of His interviews in “The Speaking Tree.” I’m not sure why, but the interview stayed with me.

In 2016, I was going through a lot of turmoil in my life. That is when I decided to start meditating, to give me some peace of mind. I went online and I found the Power of Purity (PoP) meditation by Mohanji. I started doing PoP every day and read a lot of blogs by Mohanji. I also got in touch with one of Mohanji’s followers in my city and attended a few meditation sessions at her place.

It became that my day would begin and end thinking of Mohanji. I desperately wanted to meet Him. In 2017, Mohanji came to Mumbai in June, and I was invited for the retreat with Him. I met Him for the first time and He asked me to stay connected with His close followers in the city.

I attended another satsang with Mohanji in August 2017. In January 2018, I was initiated into Kriya, together with my husband. Each time I met Mohanji, I just felt happy and loved. The same year, encouraged by Preethi, my husband and I decided to visit Bosnia for the Kriya Intensive programme. At that time, it felt more of a holiday for us!

We first had a satsang in Zagreb, in Croatia before leaving for Bosnia. When Mohanji came to meet us after the satsang, everyone touched His feet but I could not bring myself to do the same. I loved and admired Mohanji but there was still a slight hesitation in my mind.

On the second day of our Bosnian pilgrimage, we climbed the Pyramid of Moon, where Mohanji and Deviji took us through certain breathing exercises and meditation. The Pyramid of Moon, I was told, was a female energy centre. While doing the meditation, I became aware of the form of Kali and Durga (manifestations of Shakti or the female energy) standing in front of me! I was completely overwhelmed and started to cry, something I rarely do. I felt a great burden being lifted from me, and I could clearly understand the greatness of Mohanji who appeared and behaved like an ordinary man in front of us.

When the meditation was over, I went looking around for Mohanji who was standing at a distance. I fell at His feet crying. All barriers were broken at that moment when I realized I have found my Guru. Mohanji picked me up lovingly and blessed me. From that moment on, I felt a deep connection with Him.

mohanji CK

Back from Bosnia, I wondered how it was possible for me to have such a Master in my life! I got my answer when I met Devi Amma, who told me that I had a very long-standing connection with Mohanji. She told me that in one of my past lives, I had been one of those present when Agastaya Rishi’s wife Lopamudra, had distributed prasad (sanctified devotional offering) to all those who were present! I believe that it is a result of that blessing and going through lots of pain in subsequent lives, that I have been able to meet my Guru in this Life!

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7 – “Faith is the Key”

mohanji CK

by Olivera Miškić

In this series of Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7, we bring to you a powerful testimonial from the Bosnian Pyramids (2018) by Olivera Miškić.  The Bosnian Pyramids is a powerful energy center where she understood and experienced the true meaning of Faith in a Master. Just by surrendering her doubts and fears to Mohanji, she not  only fulfilled her wish of going to the Pyramids for the Kriya Intensive programme, she also fulfilled her duties towards a close relative.

Please read other testimonials from Chapter 7 of Mohanji Satcharita. 

Mohanji

I had a deep call from within to go for a  Kriya Intensive programme, in particular to Visoko. I only had a chance to feel the energy of that place during an earlier visit. What a powerful place! How powerful it must be in Mohanji’s presence! I applied immediately, as soon as it was announced and I got to know of it.

However, as life would have it, unexpected things happened. The thing that was happening in my life was extremely painful, or at least my mind wanted to perceive it that way.

Long before the retreat, I found out my aunt was terminally ill from a fast-progressing lung cancer. As the time of the retreat approached, her condition was getting worse and worse. Just before the retreat, she became bedridden. That meant she needed help 24 hours a day because she couldn’t sit or get up from the wheelchair on her own.

I had only one week to find a trustworthy person who would sleep in her house, since she lived alone. Among the close relatives, I was the only one she had.

I was hectically trying to find a solution and I would start panicking with the thought  of leaving her alone and travelling to another country for 5 days.  The question if I should go or stay was burning in my head. I found a caretaker, but she left us after a few days.

The pressure in my head was getting bigger and bigger. The main question I asked myself was: “Am I a spiritual person? Why am I going to this retreat? What is real spirituality –  when you help someone who is helpless or you wish  for one more answer, one more experience to satiate the hunger and add another piece of puzzle to your spiritual journey?”

In the end, not being able to take the decision on my own, I sat one evening looking at Mohanji’s photo and completely surrendering to Him, I said quietly: “You lead me, you know better than me! Let thy will be done.”

I found a caretaker, arranged everything with my aunt’s neighbours and set off to Visoko. I was still really nervous during the journey. My brain kept questioning if my actions were right. What if they call me to say she died and I wasn’t there with her in her last moments? I was praying she would stay alive and not die while none of her close family were around, since I knew that was her last wish.

The Kriya Intensive programme started with a satsang with Mohanji who immediately asked us: “Why are you here?” I couldn’t believe it! That was the exact question I asked myself. I had goosebumps.

mohanji and olivera

As the next day arrived, I started relaxing slowly through Kriya. I surrendered to it completely. Those were really powerful group meditations. I would sometimes feel tears spontaneously flowing down my face while we were meditating. We were lucky to do Kriya in various energy spots, as well as at the Pyramids of the Sun and of Love. Each was different. As the days were passing, I was surrendering more and more. I felt the strong Yang energy of the Pyramid of the Sun, which expelled immense anger from me. I was becoming more and more aware that I was supposed to be at that place in Visoko with the Master.

Everything culminated with the one-hour meditation in the tunnels, a hidden place where no tourist had yet set a foot. We remained in complete darkness and an image from a past life flashed before my eyes. I knew it was true. At that moment, everything became clear. I understood why I kept going through this life with a certain conviction which was only doing me harm. That revelation came peacefully, with no emotions, crystal clear. This meditation was crowned with a Shaktipat in the tunnels, which was so powerful that it seemed to me I was under its influence, in complete peace, for the rest of the retreat. The fears disappeared. I simply knew that things were going exactly the way they should and my aunt would welcome me alive. I knew I had to be there in Visoko, at the Pyramids with Mohanji, and went back to Belgrade more stable, rooted in the faith in myself and in my Guru, being able to truly help her and bring a bit of light into the last days of her life. That’s how it was. Despite the painful end of her life, I said goodbye to her in peace, with prayers and mantras, fulfilling her last wishes.

shaktipat

Now that I’m writing this, my aunt is no longer in this earthly dimension, but I know with certainty, deeply rooted in peace, that I was supposed to be at the Bosnian Pyramids then, in May 2018. It was a big test of faith for me and that’s why my whole being was urging me to go to that powerful place despite all the outer obstacles, and experience a huge transformation with the strong guidance from my beloved Guru, Mohanji. Now I know that everything is possible in His presence, and that everything is happening just the way it should.

At this retreat, I truly experienced and felt in my own body the truth Mohanji keeps repeating: “Faith is the key.” I realized faith is the key which unmistakably leads us to discover not what we think we are, but who we truly are.

With deep gratitude, I deeply bow in front of Your feet.

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7 – “The grace of Kriya”

Mohanji Awareness

In this chapter of Mohanji Satcharita – 7, we present a heart-warming write up which shows how the Guru’s grace is at play. Various tools are available for us to connect with our beloved Guru Mohanji! The biggest and the most precious of these is Consciousness Kriya. Regular practice of Kriya helps the seeker to connect easily with the Master, bringing about a change in awareness in the way we perceive things. Thus we reap huge benefits in terms of spiritual upliftment and an enhanced lifestyle. Many so called stumbling blocks of life seem to fall into place. Read further on how Consciousness Kriya helped Kanika in her life.

The grace of Kriya

By Kanika Gupta

I live in Jammu and I am a Consciousness Kriya initiate. I was initiated by Mohanji in February 2017. However, I started practicing Kriya regularly only from April 2018.

Since then, there have been amazing changes in my life and I would like to share my experiences.

Firstly, with consistent practice, I have started becoming aware of my activities. This is a process and it continues to improve and evolve, even as I write. To give you an example, if I reprimand my child, I wonder why I do so. My thought is, “Why do you scold him? See yourself in your child!”

Another important change is that some of the misunderstandings with my in-laws have started to resolve quite easily. I have always tried to have a smooth relationship. But now with regular practice of Kriya, I notice that my in-laws take steps on their own to settle things! The atmosphere is peaceful.

Watch this video where Mohanji explains, “What is Kriya ?”

Besides, I now also follow another advice given by Guruji (Mohanji). Whenever we perform yagna / homa (sacred fire ceremony), He told me to give as ahuti ( offering) to the agni (fire) any problems or misunderstandings I might have with my in-laws. I follow Mohanji’s advice and the results are astounding. I feel so relieved!

Mohanji Homa

After practicing Kriya regularly for around 4 months, I noticed that I had some stomach irritation and did not feel like drinking tea. Hence, although I could not understand what was happening, I stopped consuming tea. It also occurred to me at that time, that I should become vegan. I have always been a vegetarian. So I have been consuming cow’s milk, ghee, curd (yogurt) and paneer (Indian cottage cheese).

Veganism – a growing trend!

In October 2018, I was fortunately able to attend the Kriya Intensive programme in Bengaluru. Because of Mohanji’s grace, this programme was a wish fulfilling session of sorts! After returning from the programme, there was the Navratras (festival of 9 nights of the divine feminine) and I was able to keep up all the fasts during the period. I also became a vegan on Ashthami  (day 8 of the lunar calendar).  I was able to prepare myself and told myself that I would not consume dairy products, at least at home.

Mohanji Ahimsa

Mohanji explains compassion for the world around us through this story.

Mata’s kripa (grace of Mother Goddess), Mohanji’s grace and regular practice of Kriya have made my life a blessing!  Mohanji is full of love. He protects us at all times and is ever willing to help. Faith, patience and surrender to our Guru can work wonders in our lives.

Jai Guru Jai Guru Mohanji 

Sabke pyare Mohanji 

Humpar apni kripa kardo 

Humpar apni daya kardo
