My destiny with Mohanji – Part 1

Aditya Nagpal, India

How it started

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

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

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

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

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

Getting a job and moving to Hyderabad

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

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

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

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

Test of faith

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

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

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

Turning vegan

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

Sai and Mohanji

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

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

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

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

Inevitabilities

By Cathy Johnston, UK

October 2019, a low point in life, inevitably led me to the one possible place in which to unearth the real skills required, to face the cruellest of tsunamis that were gradually creeping forward to engulf my Mum. A pivotal point in the tapestry of my entire existence, the one single jewel in the crown of my story, nowhere else before this place ever really existed, nor, for that matter, mattered at all.

At that lowest of lows, when I’d reached the stage where I could no longer look up, destiny brought me to a meeting with Mohanji at a mountainside retreat in Serbia. This was the day my real life unwittingly began. Little did I know, at that most confusing and perplexing of times, how much I would grow to depend upon wholly and deeply love this complete and utter stranger.

However painful the experiences before my meeting with Mohanji, nothing compared to the inevitability of saying the longest of goodbyes to Mum. I always knew this would be the hardest wrench in my life, and yet! Miraculously (others have observed), I have this newfound inner strength shining forth as I feel this power emanate, this cope-ability with the full security of safely being ‘held’.

I am never alone and feel him whenever I wish. He is my forever constant, my always ‘there’. He’s in my every teardrop; he soothes my weary brow. When my chest heaves and sighs, he’s in it. Holding my hand that’s holding my Mum’s, guiding the right words of comfort when confusion engulfs her, tormented in grief.

Words fail to do justice to the inexplicable and profound showers of grace delivered by Mohanji and the palpable guidance I’ve genuinely felt and feel as I write. Unconditional love can only be experienced to comprehend fully; that the love we’ve believed to receive whilst living this mortal life doesn’t come close to the ocean-deep love of a benevolent God.

Mohanji’s simple yet profound practices have brought steadiness to the uncertain waves of the dramas of life. Chanting his name during moments of broken sleep, I can lull myself back to a dreamy slumber, enabling my spirit to face the surprises of the new dawn ahead.

Because of Mohanji, I’ve learned to appreciate these precious moments, alone with Mum, as I hold her beautiful, artistic little hands in mine, hands that brought joy through her paintings and strokes of her erudite pen.

As I stroke her gorgeous, silken, grey hair, realising that this, this moment, this here and now, is a real chance to ‘be’ love, to ‘show’ love and to fully ‘know’ love with the very best friend I’ve been so lucky to have, on this journey called life.

How privileged I am to be able to help Mum in her greatest time of need. How lucky is she, with Mohanji in the wings, guiding her away from the inevitable pains of her drawn-out end. As harrowing and distressing as these moments could seem, I have him to come home to; to nourish my being.

Guru’s embrace

By Turinski Branislava, Serbia

Translation: Maja Otovic

I read in one text that Mohanji is the Guru who finds us. I have to say that he found me long before I found myself, long before I knew who he was or that he even existed. I think it was the year 2015. A friend of mine shared a friend’s post on her Facebook page.

The picture showed a man in white attire, surrounded by many women and a few men. They seemed to be on some path in a forest (later, when I was there in 2020, I remembered that picture, and I knew it was Park Ravne 2 in Visoko, Bosnia). My thoughts ran fast: “Who does he think he is? Pretending to be Jesus, wearing a white robe, and everybody acting as if they’re under a spell.” When I wanted to see the same post a couple of days later on my friend’s profile, it was no longer there. Now I believe that it was not there for my eyes only.

About a month passed, and the same friend shared a post from her friend’s profile: “It is a blessing to have the eye card.” I remember my thoughts and reaction: “What they won’t think of just to fool people and make money off them!” Of course, nowhere did it say that the card was on sale, but only that it was a blessing to have one; however, my mind started racing. Needless to say, a couple of days later, I could not find this post on my friend’s profile.

And then, I think it was at some point in 2017 I read that the Guru was coming to my town. I let my imagination run wild, picturing him decorated like a Christmas tree. Why so, I do not know. Maybe because I had identified him with actors adorned with gold that I watched in Indian shows, the play of the mind was then endless…

I told my now ex-husband that I wanted to go and see what a Guru looks like, so that I could tell others that I had seen a living Guru because the ones I had heard of until then had already transcended from the physical body into another realm. “Are you nuts? They’ll drug you, sell you into slavery, take your organs. That’s a dangerous cult.” I blocked the person whose Facebook posts my friend shared on her wall in panic.

Then life’s path took me to a crossroads…

I put on heavy shoes and dressed in self-accusation, hatred, pain, jealousy, envy, and all negative emotions and thoughts that were coming my way because I myself chose to be filled with them. The reason was a divorce, for which I now feel very grateful, but back then, I’d been able to see only pain and hatred. Another door opened for me. In those days of temptation, my path turned orange. I joined the ACT Serbia Foundation. My heart got to know the power of serving and unconditional love.

A few months later, on 22 February 2020, we had an activity. The person who had posted about the man in white attire, the eye card, the Guru’s visit, the one whom I had blocked on Facebook, invited me to the Happy Center. “Let’s have a coffee together and walk through the labyrinth.” In that post, I remembered it said: “Guru’s visit and walk through the labyrinth”. I was curious. In my mind, they were labyrinths of high green fences. There was also a fear: “What if she pours something in my coffee… but I am not going alone; there will be a total of seven volunteers. But what if…”

However, my curiosity was stronger than my fear.

If you could only see the look of disappointment on my face. With too many expectations and excitement, disappointment was inevitable. There were just some piled rocks instead of a labyrinth of high green fences. Only when I crossed all 108 blocks and reached the center, did I feel the energy flowing through my legs, then up my spine, towards the head. For the first time, I was drunk with such high energy, as if I was levitating, as if I was not walking; I heard a call from a distance for all of us to enter the Happy Center. Thoughts started racing. Thoughts of fear…what if… white slavery, organ trafficking, cult…

Curiosity won over fear again. Later, I felt grateful for the curiosity and my victory over, as now I can clearly say, unnecessary fear. I was embraced by that beautiful energy, covered in the smell of frankincense, white sage, and incense. Amazed, I sat on a pillow and closed my eyes. When I opened them, my eyes wandered toward Mohanji’s picture. “Where can I buy this picture? Out of all his pictures I see here, this one is the most beautiful.”

“You can buy them all in Novi Sad or Belgrade, but not this one. This one is received, that is, the Mai-Tri practitioners receive it.” “That is the most beautiful picture. Those eyes of his…” The next thing I remember was a call into Mohanji’s eyes. I was at the foot of some mountain. Mohanji and somebody else were on its top. They were telling me something, but I could not remember what. I know that I felt good and that I was at peace. When I came back to my body, I heard the other volunteers talking, but I could barely say: “I was called into his eyes. I was at the foot of some mountain. He and another person were telling me something.” 

I did not feel comfortable saying the name Mohanji; instead, I said he as I shared my experience. After listening to me, “Welcome”, said Maya, the seemingly physically fragile woman who embraced me with such power, tenderness and warmth. Where was I being welcomed to? Did I set off somewhere in order to arrive? All of the present volunteers had warm smiles on their faces, and I did not understand a thing. Well, I was not asking to go somewhere. I’d just had the urge to look at those eyes in the picture; it was not done with a purpose.

As dawn was approaching, one of the ladies said, “Let’s have a picture. First, I’ll take a picture of you, and then you can take a picture of me.” I published the picture on my Facebook profile. Above the picture, there were nine hearts. At first, I did not get it that I put two extra hearts, as we were only seven volunteers in total. I was about to erase two of them when I received the first mental message from Mohanji: “The two of us are also there; don’t erase those two hearts. Me and Baba are there.” “Who am I talking to? Who are you? What “Baba” are you talking about? (translator’s note: “Baba” means “granny” in Serbian) These are all younger women. There are no grannies here.”

“Me, Mohanji, and Sai Baba are there.” “Maya, I am talking to someone! He says he is Mohanji and that there is some Baba (granny) there. I am telling him there are no grannies here, but only younger women.” “This is Sai Baba”, Maya said, pointing towards the altar. I was ashamed of my ignorance, but I took it as a sign that I was ready for new teachings. Later, through meditations, dreams, and Reiki treatments, I received messages from Mohanji that I lived with full acceptance. For example, right after sending my first experience sharing, I got a message that it should not be published. I could not understand why I was told not to publish it back then, but I obeyed and stopped the first publishing. Now, it is time to publish this text.

After that day – 20 February 2020, my connection with the Master started becoming stronger day by day. I got answers from him in various ways, through Facebook posts on Mohanji Official page, video recordings, and texts from his book The Power of Purity. Through connecting to him, I received the answers to my unexpressed questions. That was a true blessing.

My true wish was to get a hug from Mohanji. In Divcibare, on 20 May 2021, my wish came true. I physically met the Master, and I felt blissful in his embrace. The peace and unconditional love that I received that day filled my soul. Initiation into Kriya and the first Shaktipat… one by one, the lights in my chest began glowing. I got closer to the light so that I could shine brighter, more today than yesterday and even more so tomorrow. It all continued from the retreat at the Bosnian Pyramids.

That strong pillar of light that illuminated me during the meditation intensified the light in my heart. I had a feeling that I was filled with light. It was within me and around me. In such moments, one should express gratitude for all the grace. As the retreat drew to a close, for some reason, I had a dispute with the organizers because I wanted to attend the satsang on 14 June 2021. As usual, and for my highest good, I got a message in my sleep: “All that you need, you have and will receive through Shaktipat. I will give, and you will take as much as you can; you won’t take any more tomorrow rather than today. Give your spot to somebody who needs it more.”

In the morning, even though I had paid for a suite just to spend one more day in the Master’s aura, I made a decision to do as the message said. On my Viber, I got a call from a dear friend: “It all happened as you said. The flight to Abu Dhabi has been cancelled. I am in Belgrade, getting back to Visoko. I’m worried I won’t be able to attend the satsang as I did not register. Whom should I talk to?” “Just come. I’m not going, so you can take my spot; you need it more. Say that you will attend the satsang instead of me.” “Thank you. Thank you so much,” my friend was overjoyed. “Thank you, Mohanji,” I thought. And that’s how the message came true. Somebody needed it more, and she went instead of me.

I was sitting in meditation and looking towards the hall where the satsang was taking place. As if I was present there, through connecting internally, I felt peace and unconditional love given as blessings from the Master.  Then a group together with Mohanji came out of the tunnel. “Come with us; it is time for individual pictures.” said someone. I will receive another hug, my heart sang. Once again, I’ll be in the aura of the Guru.

“You did not attend this satsang, so you can’t take a picture,” said a dear soul from the organizing team. I wanted to explain that the reason was not a lack of interest in the satsang, arrogance, or the cost, that it was not anything like what she (might have) thought. However,  I did not feel like justifying myself to her or explaining that the reason for my cancellation was Mohanji’s message that I had received in my dream – to give my spot to someone else who needed it more.

Without any explanation, without ego, without feeling insulted or angry, I took a step back and watched all the others who were lucky enough to be in the Guru’s embrace. I was happy to just look at him with physical eyes. He’s always with me. These were just moments of physically looking at him. Suddenly, the organizer said, “I was only kidding; of course, you can take a picture with him.” Like everybody else who took a picture, I got the hug I had longed for. Without uttering a single word, the Master and I understood each other in those moments of silence. His hug was the embrace for my soul. My hug was the openness towards the peace and unconditional love that I embraced in all its glory.

The days continue… I shine brighter; my heart is illuminated.

Peace, love and light to the world.

Anonymous Testimonial. Translated by: Maja Otovic 

How I rose above the suicidal thoughts with Mohanji’s help…

Since 2015, I have been feeling tired of this life. I was only 23 years old. University, family, and private life all seemed all right, but nothing was ok upon a deeper look. All of these aspects of my life were filled with hardships, struggles, problems and existential uncertainty, creating anxiety in me. 

For that reason, I did not feel like living. Just thinking about the future, I could not imagine myself as someone who was graduating from university, finding a job, a partner, having kids, working until retirement and then dying. It all seemed to be forced and unnecessary.   

Who gave me this life? Who has forced me to live in this world full of suffering, selfishness and danger? Who conditions me to leave this world through some natural or destined death? Out of that feeling of impotence, the best solution seemed to be to take things into my hands and take my life away.

That’s how it was in my head, and to make things harder, each time I’d think about it, my heart would hurt, and I’d start crying. I wanted to crawl out of my skin, hide in solitude and wait for those thoughts to pass by. I knew that was not the way and that thinking this way was unhealthy, that the people who love me would suffer.

By the way, from 2015 up to 2018, this was on my mind almost daily. As if two people were living inside me: one that does not feel like living, and the other one suffering from such thoughts. Since 2018 it has been happening less and less, and up to this day, I watch my thoughts closely so that I don’t fall into the same trap. 

How has Mohanji helped me free myself from those disturbing thoughts?

I heard about him at that same period; that is in the year 2015. I investigated about him trying to draw certain conclusions, as there was a peculiar curiosity in me to meet this man. I understood from my investigation that he is an authentic person and a humanitarian with a firm belief that the world can be a better place and that he is working on it. 

It was in May 2016 that I first saw him. As he entered the room where some 50 people were waiting for the satsang to begin, I started crying all of a sudden. As the tears were rolling by themselves, in my head, a thought appeared: ‘The world is saved.’ Mohanji is someone who has made a decision, proven through each word and action of his, that he will serve the world, that he will shed light, peace and love on everyone who comes to him. And to this day, he sticks to his decision. 

A4H - Mohanji Foundation

After that first encounter, I had an opportunity to attend various satsangs and personally talk to Mohanji. He gave me good advice that was applicable to all situations, offered a solution to my difficult state, and in the end, warned me about something that indeed came true. 

I realized that the suicidal thoughts often ensued from the expectations of others, my expectations from myself, problems, existential fears, etc. I wanted to run away from it all. But, through understanding and accepting its root cause, I stopped feeling sad and instead focused on the true values. I’d ask myself: “Does that really matter?” The reasons for not living became irrelevant, secondary, imposed and ‘in my head,’ while the reality was different.

The purpose of serving the world has helped me, pushed me forward, and given me the strength to do even more than I thought I could. There is so much to do here, and I’ll give my best to make the lives of future generations better and happier. 

As of our first conversation and up to this day, my life has been filled with purpose thanks to Mohanji, who is my friend, support, and guardian angel. In my free time, I volunteer in ACT Foundation, a humanitarian organization that Mohanji founded. It provides basic resources for all people and beings of the earth. ACT gives support, solace, hope and spreads love. Many of those close to Mohanji are not only my friends (and how much that means when you need a friend) but are available to the entire world (through Acharya programs, online chat on mohanji.org and other platforms founded and supported by him).

May be an image of 2 people, sky and text that says "We can carry nothing from here when we die except the residue of the goodness of our hearts. The residual goodness travels with us beyond our death. Be good. Do good. Love all. Serve all. Mohanji RESPECT & RESPONSIBILITY"

Nowadays, there seem to be difficulties, problems and struggles in my life, but it is not all that bad, and my heart is joyful. I have faith in dear God, and I’m grateful to him for giving me a life full of challenges and filling it with even more help and support. 

A piece of advice for those who feel suicidal: for determining the cause and finding the way to rise above such thoughts, you can look for help from a psychotherapist or a spiritual master/priest. It goes deep, and one needs to dig deep within oneself and light up those dark corners. That’s why it’s important to have stable support and guidance.

And in the end, I share with you some of Mohanji’s quotes that were most important to me and that have been my refuge:

“Never give up on life.

“Just keep moving.”

“You are love.”

Empowered 2.0 – Part 1

By Swathi Jarugumilli, Australia

May every thought and word that dawns on my mind be submitted to his gracious divine lotus feet, who is the ocean of compassion and kindness, mother of all mothers, Gurudeva Mohanji.

Every program done by Mohanji is constructed in such a way that it offers a stepping stone to finding oneself. It is paving a path for those who want to take the journey inwards. This is being done with utmost care without giving any shock to oneself, whether physically or mentally. By slowly exposing the participants to situations (daily) and letting them experience themselves at that moment with total awareness, resolving/destroying the raised confusions depending on that person’s mindset is a mere divine play. Nevertheless, Mohanji is operating through us by staying within us in the form of Universal Consciousness. 

No photo description available.
Day 4

Power of purity & other techniques were practised on this day which I didn’t attend as I was exposed to one of my vulnerable situations, i.e., the truth behind my younger brother’s sudden demise last year. He drowned in a farm pool (built for farming purposes) while on a trip with his friends.

Recently my parents visited this place and happened to know that only a 2-year-old kid saw what had happened on that day. My brother and his friends were arguing about something, and suddenly one of them pushed him into the pool. When my brother tried to get hold of the guy at his collar and brought him too into the water, my brother was left to drown, and the one who pushed was saved. Since nobody was around and, of course, no cc cameras were nearby, whatever story his friends had told the local police had to be registered. They closed the case without further investigation, saying it was just an accident while swimming; he drowned in the pool, which was 20ft deep. It was unbelievable for our family members as he was a great swimmer and a basketball player who was 6ft tall. Since there was no more evidence, even the police couldn’t do anything to neither of us. 

Listening to what my mother said (only today), I was fighting myself not to give in to any violent motives or thoughts. I simultaneously tried my best to convince her too not to curse them.

Day 5

I was completely devastated by the next morning and felt as if there was no justice. However, I did not want to give in to these violent thoughts and was seeking help from Mohanji constantly by uttering his name, listening to AUM chanting (sung by Mohanji), doing Consciousness Kriya, listening to Shiva Kavacham (sung by Mohanji). After a few hours, I felt Mohanji in my heart center in the form of compassionate Shiva. I vented out my anger and helplessness, asking for justice in my brother’s case. Suddenly there was peace from within, and from the eyes of Mohanji’s eye card was a beautiful glow (Thejassu). Later in the day, while cooking, below thought dawned.

“Every being has a part of the supreme soul in them. However, lifetimes of wrongdoings make one enclosed in dark clouds, which they reflect onto the society. What if this dark cloud disappeared? What if we help those beings to come out of this darkness? Can we be compassionate enough to send love and affection to them so that no other being gets affected by their behaviour? Isn’t this what we practised in Power of Purity meditation. Shall we send some love and compassion to the friends of your brother?”

No photo description available.

Isn’t this what Mohanji’s core principles are about? My thoughts got totally dissolved. I was at peace, sending love and affection to everyone who was covered in such dark clouds. Mohanji was and is listening. No word or feeling is getting diverted. The only thing is to wait for our turn by having patience. We are all being looked after. He is a king. He is a Maharaja.

Jai Gurudeva Datta! Jai Sripada! Jai Mohanji!

The power of Consciousness Kriya

consciousness-kriya

By Dejan Cosic, Bosnia and Herzegovina

In ancient times there lived a great and curious king who challenged all wise men of his kingdom to explain the idea of karma, karmic law and karmic processes. Many sages passed through his palace and gave various replies, but those did not satisfy the king, who continued seeking a more profound answer. Finally, a liberated master appeared in front of him. He said, “Nobody can reveal to you the secret of karma, which you can only experience by yourself,” and gave him an initiation into Kriya.

And that’s exactly what Consciousness Kriya is. A deep but lit path towards our own soul and the understanding of the law of our very existence through a direct and clear personal insight, under the support and protection of Mohanji, a master who has found the way towards his self and the absolute Consciousness. 

Kriya Yoga - Through Breath to Light

I had been waiting for about 13 years for the opportunity to get initiated into Kriya. In the meantime, I practised various breathing techniques and meditations, but they all proved futile in terms of what I was yearning for, and that was a long-lasting peace, and above all, of course, control over my own mind, which at that time was like a herd of wild horses. Without a doubt, those techniques were providing me with a lot of energy and certain insights, but the understanding of myself and the world was not the way I wanted it to be. Something crucial was always missing.

The only thing that I was sure of was that my mind was completely scattered and so indecisive that I couldn’t even decide which technique to practice at times. That’s why I really wanted one single technique that could replace all others. That was Consciousness Kriya. I understand now that all those techniques that I used were like riding a bicycle compared to riding a spaceship that Kriya provides.

I started practising Kriya in 2016, but not regularly/daily, as I was taking breaks. Even though I knew that the science of Kriya demands great discipline, that is an everyday practice; I didn’t dare to set a clear intention and make a decision not to skip a single day. However, in February last year, I made up my mind, and since then, it’s been over 400 days now; I have been practising Kriya on a daily basis.

Now I notice a big difference. It’s hard to put into words the heat in my palms and spine that I feel almost every day; the enjoyment of the breath that is much longer now so that while practising Kriya, I inhale approximately once a minute, while sometimes I am completely merged with the breath. My energy is more stable; I am more peaceful. I sleep less, and I need a lot less time to accept some difficult moments as they are and to get out of the emotional instability.

Simply put, I have more control over myself. I feel and understand better my body, mind and intellect, as well as many obstacles that my mind poses. I have an impression that I understand better and can distinguish between the thoughts that are really mine and those that belong to ego or are simply not mine. In short, the ‘antivirus program’ called Consciousness is active non-stop and gives me the opportunity to connect to myself on a deeper level and witness all that is happening within me and around me.    

In the middle of last month, I had a significant experience related to the time we live in, as well as the fear and insecurities that we are surrounded by today. So, one afternoon I realized that I’d lost the sense of smell. Without any fear, I thought the cause of it could be coronavirus, even though I was feeling well.

The next morning, I woke up extremely tired and with very little energy. I think I was ready to spend an entire day in bed. However, I didn’t give up, and that day I did Kriya 3-4 times and, in such a way, renewed my energy completely. The next day I was as good as new. Several days later, it turned out that I tested positive for Covid, but I went through it completely intact and, with an important experience, ‘Praise the Lord.’ 

In the end, I’ll repeat the words that Mahavatar Babaji said to his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya, “Even a little practice of this science will save you from great fear and colossal suffering.”

EMpowered by Mohanji – 2

by Snezana Jovanovic

Translation: Maja Otovic

Empowered – A journey from fear to freedom

We are at the end of eleven incredible days of daily empowerment, negating our dark sides, understandings, insights, confrontations, contemplations, questionings, answers, surfacing of our old programs, deep fears, and self-observation. We got an insight of ourselves from a different viewpoint, clearly detaching from what we are not and melting into our true being. Rewinding of all the recordings that we carry inside of us sends us strong messages of who we really are. The reason is for us to remember ourselves – descending into our hearts and opening ourselves towards unconditional love. 

In my opinion, Mohanji, (for those who do not know him) is one of the greatest living Masters walking this planet. I have been following him since the year 2012, and luckily I didn’t give up. Simply put, he is a father, a brother, a son, a mirror which shows me my own reflection.   

Mohanji gathered us through his unconditional love and grace so that he, as pure love and light, would show us our path in a clear, honest, direct, and elegant manner. There are no words to express the gratitude and love I have for him for everything he has given us through this program and for everything he is giving us. Thank you, Mohanji.

How come I attended this program after all the programs and retreats I have been through with Mohanji? I’ll have to admit that this was something that I cannot miss, something very important. I intended to finally set the ground for my further journey through this program. I was ready to face all of my deepest fears boldly, suppressed since who knows when and due to what situations. They were waiting in my system so that in the perfect moment set by the universe, they would surface; they would be lit, realized, looked at and let go of, as I no longer needed them.

That’s exactly what happened. Since day one, Mohanji’s every sentence resonated deeply in my being. It’s not something I didn’t know or haven’t heard before, but I needed to hear again. The process started even before the program commenced, on a subtle level: letting go of everything that we were ready to release, and at the same time, empowerment of our true being to live its truth, to live itself fully. 

Through love and light that was descending into us all these days, I gained clear insights into my journey, existence, old patterns, and fears that I gladly want to get rid of now. 

As the program continued day by day, the journey within was getting deeper and brighter. When you are with a true Master such as Mohanji, all you need to do is be receptive and brave, open and truthful. We need to allow everything within us and no longer serving us to the surface, to emerge and show itself clearly, so Mohanji could do his job and dissolve it with his light. That is exactly how Mohanji is helping this world and each individual who trusts him. 

I’ll go back to Day 6. We were halfway through the program, and so much had already surfaced and could be clearly seen, understood and felt. Some weight, heaviness, was present that morning. As Mohanji instructed us through his teachings, it’s exactly those states that we need to observe and try to penetrate deeper to understand why something is (not) happening in our lives. 

All morning went by in such deep contemplations. Fears (some deeply suppressed fears) were an obstacle for me to live what I truly am, what I believe in, freely express and speak up for it, and fight for it. Now with the powerful presence of Mohanji’s light, I could feel all those fears. All those lost battles, where I gave up somewhere along the way; I gave up on life, myself, and God. The responsibility I took then, for the fearlessness and lost lives of the people I was guiding, on some subtle level, left a few imprints: give up on any battle, don’t take responsibility, surrender…. and who knows what else. It did not matter; what mattered was that I no longer lived on those patterns. 

Then the program started, and once again, each sentence hit the spots. I felt expansion, lightness, Mohanji’s energy that flowed like a current through my body and expanded – beautiful energy. This warmth radiated from my palms, a feeling hovering over my body. 

At that moment, I was on the road through Belgrade. Suddenly, out of nowhere, strong messages started coming to me, as if a movie was unrolling in front of my eyes. I can’t describe the speed of small events that this movie was made of. 

Then came the indication of the ancestors through one strong personality from Serbian history; an ancestor who showed himself in front of me in natural size, on the wall of a building that I was passing by. There was a message written in big letters to emphasize the meaning and importance of those words for me. The message said: 

 “Who dares, he can. Who knows no fear, goes forward.”   

Fieldmarshal Zivojin Misic

At that moment, I was completely filled with the powerful energy of this ancestor and his message. This message of a brave, decisive, wise duke, while connecting and merging with his energy, gave me his blessings and great support so that these values become part of me from now on. I could feel that strength, stability, clarity, fearlessness, all that Mohanji spoke to us about throughout the program. 

Once again, I got confirmation that ancestors are always there for us and how important it is to remember them and send them our love and do all it takes to liberate them. We would then have mercy, support, and power that their energy carries for ourselves and future generations. With deep gratitude for the given moments and with the flow of that supporting energy, I moved on. 

Through the entire event, I could feel Mohanji’s strong presence and guidance. The feeling of gentleness, love, stability dissolved into a romantic dance of my soul with the existence. 

On the seventh day, I received a job offer from my colleague. It was not easy in the past year without a job, without an income. But, that was the way to get out of my comfort zone completely and master the lesson on letting go, complete trust in guidance. For that, I needed to start to accept myself unconditionally, love myself, respect myself. It was a great blessing during the times of transformation. On the following day, I had a job interview. And on the day of Ganesha’s birthday, I sent a CV for the new job. What to say?

This program has shed a lot of light on me, as both Mohanji and I intended to set the ground for my future path. Endless gratitude to Mohanji, the Tradition, all the wonderful Acharyas, and all the participants. Immense GRATITUDE to everyone and everything. 

See you in December.

Big hug to 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!

Thirst for love

beautiful Mohanji


By Vikas Musale, India

My pranaams to the reader; thank you, and I am blessed to receive an opportunity to be a part of Shri Mohanji’s group.

I was recently fortunate to meet Devi Amma (a spiritual Master from South India) and receive her blessings. When I prayed to her that I wanted to walk the path of spirituality and serve mankind, she asked me to go to Shri Mohanji. Coincidentally, the 21-day program was initiated, and that is how I became a part of Mohanji’s group. Before I share my experiences with the beloved Masters and Acharyas during my sessions, I want to share a little about myself. My apologies for the length, but I just wanted to pour out my feelings and gratitude.

Since 2001, soon after my PGDBM from Sri Sringeri Sharada Institute of Management, New Delhi, I worked for different branded IT multinational companies. Today, I am counted as one among the so-called leadership teams in the corporate. I never allowed the designation and power to mix with my humble service to the people who report to me across the globe. I have always adopted a situational leadership style and blended it with my technology learning. I receive feedback from people worldwide that I am seen as a friend, mentor, guide, to even a tough taskmaster. I have never compromised on values and always uphold righteous acts for the self and others. Possibly, because of my sincerity and righteous approach/actions, I have become an individual whom people would love to hate either at peer level or the hierarchy above me.

Due to the pandemic, there is a sense of job insecurity and uneasiness, nor do I know what is in store for me tomorrow. Probably as a divine assurance, I was handed a book to read, “Autobiography of an Avadhoota – Avadhoota Nadananda” by one of my well-wishers. Tears rolled down from my eyes while I was going through it. I was overwhelmed to learn how he surrendered himself to his Guru Mata Tara and the way the respected Avadhoota was taken care of. I was unsure why, but a similar feeling was aroused in me, and I just surrendered myself to the Guru Mandala and prayed – ‘I want to do the right thing to the people around me, be it on my professional or personal level. Whatever happens to my dependent family, which looks up to me as a bread earner, and me, I leave it with you.’ A definite ray of hope is still to be seen while I am walking this corporate life with trust and faith in the Guru Mandala.

My personal life, like many others, has gone through many ups and downs. I lost my father some time ago. While I was making him comfortable on my lap during his last moments, he left for his heavenly abode. He took his last breath on my lap. There I was totally lost in pin-drop silence as to what to do next? That night will remain as a memory forever in me. The person whom I looked up to all my life was no longer with me. It was a difficult moment to digest. For close to 32 years, he’s never hugged me, not that it should not have crossed his mind, but perhaps his up-bringing and his 30+ professional life was such that hugging someone was perhaps a sign of weakness. I felt that any moment, he would wake up from his sleep and give me a nice warm and tight hug. This was the only thing I was craving since my childhood. I was waiting for him to wake up to complete what he owes me, but of course in vain.

While recovering from this loss, another blow struck me, and this time it was my elder brother. He had undergone many hardships, and, eventually, it all stopped. He had a massive cardiac arrest. My family and I are still recovering from all of this. My situation is such that I am not permitted to display my tears/pains, my dependents look up to me, and I am bothered by the impact if I discount an ounce of my courageous face I show to them daily. That is a roller coaster I am going through now.

Now about the 21-day program and working with beloved Masters and Acharyas, it has been a phenomenal journey so far. I am still learning a lot from them. The way they have initiated the course, the discipline on food habits and daily routine, the way they are walking with each one of us sadhakas is really impressive. Organizing such an event worldwide is no child’s game, tremendous coordination, support, discussions, material preparation and being available as per agreed time is not only tiring but a mammoth task. We sadhakas sitting on the other side of the desk, receive such huge efforts seamlessly, we feel the ease of receiving guidance and working on the activities on time daily.


I bow to all the Masters and the Acharyas and express my supreme pranaams and gratitude for bestowing such grace on all of us. Unsure what good deed I must have done in the past to be part of and receive such love and grace. I empathize with the whole group as I run a global team too and I can relate to the pains, pressure and pleasure the team would be put through to conduct this event at such a massive scale, and I humbly pray the event to reach success beyond imagination with Shri Mohanji’s grace.

The way daily activities are arranged is also impressive; a combination of practicals and theory. Practicals relate to sharpening and refining our physical bodies by performing yoga under the guidance of trained yogis to prepare our body to receive positive energy and health. The mind/brain is invoked to receive grace and what is right in the form of following Guru’s acts in MAST reading, and guided meditation sessions lead by the blessed Acharyas. Every meditation session is unique, and it is a feeling or a taste that can only be experienced. Despite the hardships I shared above, I still find myself in mental peace, harmony, composure, and calm. I see the mist ahead of me, and I need to work towards the intended destination.

A deep desire has surfaced in me after learning about Shri Mohanji from the recent sessions. I pray humbly for forgiveness if I am asking for more things. I feel a sense of emptiness in me, and I yearn to quench the thirst of the love and care I always craved for from my beloved, biological father. There is a sense of being lost in the dark and not knowing where to go, running from pillar to post to overcome the sense of incompleteness within me. There are questions – what should I do next? Why are things happening to me the way they are happening around me? What should I do to overcome and get away from their clutches?

If permitted by Father Mohanji, I would like to receive the same or a better warm and tight hug from him, where I want to weep like a child in his arms, forget myself, dissolve myself in him and be with him until no one else and nothing is left in me. Start afresh as his child and walk the path wherever he directs. I sincerely beg for forgiveness if I have unknowingly asked for anything beyond which I should not have asked for, and pray to ignore the silly child in me.

Igniting our inner flame

I think the turning point on my spiritual path (besides the fact that I met Mohanji) was when I went to the retreat called “Ignite Your Inner Flame,” held in October last year. I’d been following Mohanji for three and a half years, and I developed some kind of telepathic communication with him. In everyday life, sometimes, it manifested in a way that the signals and messages were immediately clear to me. Sometimes he had to work hard to draw my attention to a particular issue (usually when I didn’t like something and when I was subconsciously running away from it). In guided meditations, however, everything was fast and crystal clear. But what had happened to me during the retreat surpassed all my previous experiences.

Ignite Your Inner Flame Retreat

Of course, the meditations were fantastic and deeply purifying, with a lot of insights and emotional release through crying on my part. Then came the sixth morning! I remember it well!

During yoga, while we were doing the five-speed breathing, as soon as I lay on the mat (we were breathing in the fetal position), I fell into a meditative state, and I was not doing yoga anymore. Instead of it, I was going through a very animated movie of my own. Long winding tunnels of gleaming white upstanding blocks. What a wonderful feeling! I was passing through them, I was actually floating, and everything was sliding somehow. The images overflew, like in a video game or in the Matrix movie. I was not afraid; I just let the movie unfold. The others started with the exercises. I didn’t. I was flying through those tunnels, and at one point, Mohanji joined me. We were not in the form of humans. We appeared as silhouettes, holding hands and going through the tunnels. Light, light, there was light everywhere. I was happy, I was delighted to be with him, and everything was so beautiful! Then, it started getting a bit darker. At one point, it was as if we were on some medieval rampart, which was made of gleaming white stone blocks. Behind us was a gleaming light, in front of us, tunnels, but not so bright. We were standing, leaning against the rampart, looking down at those paths bounded by high ramparts which appeared darker the farther they went.

Suddenly, I knew what was coming next. We were going to get my father, who had passed away six years ago. The landscape changed quickly. Steppes, bare trees, darkness, tunnels, tundra… everything was barren and dark. “No, I’m not afraid,” I answered Mohanji’s question. “Are you sure?” he asked me. Then I realized that I would have to go and get my father all by myself. I cried: “I’ll go, I’ll go, I’m not afraid. I’ll go, and I’m not afraid, but I don’t know how to find him.” So, I went alone (the day before, also in yoga, Mohanji cleansed my biggest problem with my father, he cleansed it up so that everything remained the same, but I was at peace with it). It was as if I had some navigation inside of me, occasionally I felt my father’s presence, and then I lost him. I cried, I didn’t know whether to do yoga or to continue with this or to pick my things and go, I laughed a little. Moments of complete interruption of the visions… Nothing was happening!

I was waiting to be led on, to move on, and I continued to wander through those dark landscapes, bare black forests, and muddy meadows. I panicked, I completely lost the signal, then again, somewhere in my heart, I heard a ringing! It was so pale and weak. I saw a black coiled lifeless mass that looked like a man for a millisecond. Then I lost the image, and I wandered for a long time; I was more and more terrified that I wouldn’t find him. “You have to call him out,” Mohanji told me. “And he also has to decide for himself to answer,” he was saying to me. I cried, I called out to my father, he was gone, why did I lose him? Why did the signal appear and disappear? Where was the signal receiver? Did I have it? Where was it inside of me? I’d realized that I needed to tell my father something; to let go of my biggest pain, the one Mohanji had cleansed the day before. And then, all of a sudden, my father, who was some black lifeless mass, just glued on to me. He didn’t cling to me; he glued on to me. I carried him in my arms; to a place where my mother was waiting for me (she had passed away eleven years ago). She was in the shape of tiny smoke, but she looked young and vital, whereas my father was black and motionless, dead in fact. I handed over my father to my mother, and I wanted to tell her something, to hug her, but then I gave up, it wouldn’t be good, everything had been done, I needed to go back.

I returned along the same path that was going from darkness to the light, traveling by light speed. Mohanji was waiting for me on the rampart. We held hands while we were sailing through bright tunnels into the sky. Then he let me go, and I flew through the sky alone. I flew, I flew, I laughed, bathed in the sun, I rolled over, I turned, I was sure I was free, unlimited, I knew that he was somewhere and he was keeping an eye on what I was doing, but this complete feeling of freedom was unrepeatable, this was better even than flying while he was holding my hand.

HSTY Yoga group

A year has almost passed since then. Everything’s been happening at an incredible speed. I’ve entered into this year with his energy in the company of Devi Mohan during the New Year’s Eve in Belgrade; I spent almost two months in an ashram near Bangalore learning HSTY Yoga and practicing in daily meditations, chanting, and contemplation. Along with the other course participants, I was blessed to be in Mohanji’s physical presence for two beautiful afternoons, and I felt like I was flying again. I am currently participating in the Online Women M Power Boot camp. The transformation I feel is huge. I get to know myself more and more every day, and more and more, I like what I find out. I get to know my strengths, my wisdom, my peace. It is interesting; I feel that I am only now getting to know Mohanji and how great his selfless love and grace is.

My deepest gratitude and love to Mohanji always.
