Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 4, January 2019

“Understand. I never leave anybody who trusts in me. Faith in God and Guru is the ultimate protection. Selfless Service is the ultimate insurance. Surrender with gratitude is the ultimate prayer. Remember this always. Doubts are your enemy. Confusion is what they leave you with. Alienation and separation from truth brings people down who doubt themselves, others, gurus, and gods. Stay with the truth. Do what’s right. Always be grateful. Always display compassion and kindness. The world is what we make it to be. Live compassion. Love unconditionally. Be Mohanji always.” – Mohanji

With our limited minds we see glimpses of the various divine dimensions of Mohanji and attempt to describe what we have experienced as testimonials/stories. These are expressions of pure love from devotees who feel Mohanji’s compassion, love and protection when they are truly connected to Him.

Mohanji says, “One of the basic reasons for our existence in the body is expression, so you must express. That’s the way you are. As you are, you express, that’s important, so you need to express yourself honestly, not in a conditioned way.”

With deep reverence, gratitude, humility and love, we offer Mohanji Satcharita 4 at the divine feet of our Guru, Brahmarishi Mohanji.

These stories when read with faith and conviction would inspire the reader to also experience the divine qualities of Mohanji.

In this chapter, there are nine more stories of Mohanji’s Divine grace & protection.

Divine Grace & Protection

The following verse from the Guru Gita depicts the protection offered by a Master. Guru Gita verse 43:

Yadanghri-kamala-dvandvam, dvandva-taapa-nivaarakam

Taarakam sarvadaa padbhyah, Srigurum pranamaamyaham.

which means:

I salute Shri Guru, whose two lotus feet remove the pain of duality and who always protects one from calamities.

This Guru Gita verse rings a bell for every devotee of Mohanji. Being omnipresent, He is by the side of the devotee during difficulties in a flash. Numerous devotees all over the world have felt his presence and protection. He showers each one of us with His grace, whether we remember him or not. What is required from us is establishing the connection with His supreme Consciousness.  He, through his compassion and unconditional love carries us through the journey of life. In each of the nine experiences shared here, all experienced the unseen hand of protection only on retrospection. What appears as an individual incident actually unfolds with grace and protection of the Master. We need to surrender with faith and awareness and rest assured that the Master takes care of each one of us. Read on and enjoy these true experiences of people in various situations.

So here are the nine stories shared by devotees on how they have felt Mohanji’s grace and protection at different times.

1. Miraculous Hues In A Pendant: Ruby Nair, Virginia, USA

Aum Gam Ganapataye Namah!!

Jai Mohanji!!

During this Virginia Retreat in August 2018, we were introduced to various accessories: Mohanji Protection Pendants, Mohanji Protection Bracelets and Mohanji Vibhuti Boxes. As I am not a big fan of any sort of jewelry or accessories and don’t wear any, I did not want to purchase them.

When the products were introduced, I asked for the price and Mohanji casually and laughingly said “$100 for Ruby, since she is from NY.” Later that evening, I ended up buying two bracelets and did  spend about $100!

A couple of weeks later, I was speaking to someone about something random and the person suggested that being a Mai-tri healer, I should keep some Mohanji Protection Pendants with me in case someone with a need may come by. Around the same time I happened to chat with Manu about something else and he shared that he has been wearing his necklace pendant every day since the retreat but takes off the bracelet at night. So, I felt I should purchase the necklace pendants for my family as well. I decided to do this because the Mohanji Protection Bracelet was at my altar most of the time and I wore it only during meditations or when going somewhere special, since I didn’t want it to get dirty or break during my house work. However, the necklace on the other hand, will always be with me and it is small enough to not get in my way.

 

On October 4th, 2018, I received some Mohanji Protection pendant necklaces in silver, and as soon I got them, I placed one in front of Mohanji’s  picture on the altar, thanking Him for bringing them to us. I was just happy that I was wearing the necklace all the time now and didn’t have to worry about taking it off and getting it dirty etc. For the first two days of wearing the new necklace (Mohanji Protection Pendant), I felt very tired, exhausted and ran a low-grade fever. I found that few others who recently purchased the bracelets had experienced something similar in terms of energies, so I just took it as a sign of purification. However, out of the four members in the house, I was the only one to fall sick.

On December 1st, after about a two-month time period, I was just glancing at my pendant and I noticed how dark it had become. I was under the impression that silver never changes colour when it is on a person. So, the first thought was, “How is this even possible?” All the negative thoughts started popping in my head and in a confused state I went to my husband and looked at his pendant.

It was not at all dark, so I just took the pictures of both pendants and sent it to Manu to hopefully get some clarity and find out if others who have purchased them had noticed something similar. As we were discussing the colours, Manu noticed that my Mohanji pendant, even though it was dark, had hues of violet/blue in the third eye, on the neck and on the shawl, and it also had shades of gold on it. In my husband’s pendant, it was as if the pendant itself had a golden tone with no other hues. It would have gone totally unnoticed if I hadn’t noticed my own darkened pendant.

I was reassured by Manu that he would find out from Mohanji and get back to me. So, the next morning I got three text messages from him. The messages were from Mohanji and they were as follows:

  1. “Purification. Warding off negative effects from the body.”
  2. “Colours signify presence. Golden is me, my tradition, sign of who is protecting.”
  3. “Plus, silver converting to black or any other color is normal.”

It was also mentioned in the text that when Mohanji was asked what the blue/violet tones meant, he just said welcome to my unusual world with the smiley face 😊

After receiving these messages, I was immediately calm and happy to know there was nothing negative about me that caused the silver to change colors. By speaking with Manu again, there was more clarity. Since I am a Mai-tri healer, the pendant was protecting me from the dark energies and I wasn’t even aware of it. Having this confirmation and knowing that I am always protected brought me to a safe place where I know I am carrying a part of Mohanji with me everywhere.

It is also very humbling to know how the universe works wonders and brings things into our lives to change, shape, protect, etc.

One thing I have learned in this journey with Mohanji is that whenever someone offers us any advice, especially from Mohanji’s family, it may seem small or insignificant or just crazy, we ought to listen. We miss a lot by listening to our minds. Sometimes just go with the flow as I did with the decision of purchasing the extra pendants.

Jai Mohanji!

2. The ‘Light’er Effect: Mina Obradović, Serbia

One day, I lit the oil lamp in front of Mohanji’s picture, left the lighter on the table and started doing something else. I suddenly heard the noise of something falling to the ground behind me. When I turned around, I saw the lighter burning. Fear overwhelmed me as I quickly put out the fire. Mohanji’s picture fell right next to the lighter, showing me it was Him that saved me. I was terrified, but also filled with love and gratitude at the same time. I cannot fully explain the moment. It was just miraculous.

pic 3

The object falling to the ground was our God (Mohanji, Jesus or Buddha…) keeping me safe.

They have shown me one small way in which they are protecting me, but who knows what kind of things they deal with on daily basis for us? And still, they don’t ask for anything in return.

I am endlessly grateful to our beloved Mohanji, all the Masters, Gods and Goddesses for always being present and protecting me.

 Love to all.

3. The Miraculous ‘Impact’: Ana Raos, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

I would like to share something I experienced today. I was on my way to Bijeljina, where Devi was conducting Yoga Nidra. After travelling for about 20 kilometres, I suddenly lost control of the car. Due to rain, the road was slippery and there might also have been some oil on the road. The wheels began to slide and the car rolled down the bushy hill, slowed down and was miraculously stopped by some thick shrubbery. My heart was beating very fast but I was not injured. There was not a single scratch or bruise, absolutely nothing. The car also was not damaged, without a scratch. A wrecking truck got me out smoothly from the shrubbery.

I couldn’t make it to for the Yoga Nidra program, but I felt very, very grateful and blessed that everything ended like this. This is another proof of how blessed and happy I am to be under Mohanji’s protection. He is always with us. I also consider this as a gentle warning to drive more carefully and not to be in a hurry. Never again will I hurry. Thank you, dearest Father for your love and blessings. You saved my life – not only in this accident, but every single day in many different ways. Love you deeply.

Jai Brahmarishi Mohanji!

4. An unseen protection: Samantha, South Africa

We had just got back from our Rishikesh retreat and I was helping my son move houses. I had taken a picture of our Mohanji and Babaji with me for their prayer altar. While I was there, my son hung up a wall mirror on the passage way wall and an hour later we just heard a crash. The mirror had fallen and broken. I am very superstitious, but this time I remained calm and just said to them that Mohanji has a reason for it to happen. The following week, my two year old granddaughter ran into the same wall and hurt her head. Had the mirror been there, it could have caused a serious injury! When my son called me to talk about the incident, the first thing he said was, “You did say that our Mohanji had a reason when the mirror broke….!”

“When gratitude becomes the essence of our character, excesses vanish, ego vanishes and anxieties vanish. Gratitude supports faith. Gratitude provides equanimity. Gratitude reinforces unconditional love. If you have to choose one quality in life, choose gratitude. It is worth it. Everything else will fall in place by itself.” Mohanji

Om Shree Gurudeva Datta!

5. Grace of faith: Punam Kapoor, Canada

This was the time in my life where I (my soul) was supposed to leave this body to move on to the next stage in my soul’s journey. Due to this time period, my spine shifted, disconnecting from my vital organs. I felt as if I would collapse any minute.

poonam

With Sai Baba’s grace, there was an energy healer with whom we made an urgent appointment for the same evening. It was praying for Mohanji’s grace. I called out to Him for help, as I had a sinking feeling inside. I could hear a voice saying, “Your work is done.” I had chest pain.

I sent an urgent email to askmohanji@mohanji.org asking for guidance.

The healer straightened my spine and connected my vital organs to the meridians which stabilized me. However, my energy levels were too low.

I called a Mohanji family member to send me healing and she reminded me that, “Punam you are a healer yourself, try healing yourself.”  That night, I sat in my puja room and prayed to Mohanji to give me strength and to heal me. Saying this, I put my hands on my heart and solar plexus chakra.

After a minute, which I took to settle down, a strong but soothing warm current started flowing. This gave me the same feeling as Mohanji giving me Shaktipath. The next morning, I felt so much better and had the energy to go back to work!

 

“Faith leads. Faith soothes. Faith reinforces. Faith nurtures life. Faith elevates life. Faith stabilizes life. Faith Liberates man. Faith increases with experiences”

My gratitude and koti pranaams to Mohanji.

6. Protection from theft: Nazeema Botha, South Africa

mohanji_with_nazeema

I would like to share an experience that happened on 31st October 2018 after Suvarna and I got back to Sandton from the airport. We both requested Uber cabs to take us home and the phone app located a pick up spot as they are not allowed to pick up at the station due to taxi violence.

We walked across the street to wait for the cabs to arrive and as we stood on the corner, a security guy called out to us. But I was hesitant, as number one, who knows if he really was a security person, and number two, I don’t trust anyone after dark. So I told Suvarna not to go as we didn’t know who he was and what he wanted.

We both stood with phones in our hands and checking the arrival time of the cab drivers. I was holding the phone with almost no grip; it was basically just resting in my palm. A few minutes later, a guy walked by and grabbed my phone, but it fell back into my hand! It was as if this guy’s hand was moved away from the phone, and it had fallen back into my hand!  A car suddenly pulled up, he jumped in, and they drove off.

I was stunned and shocked at the same time. But most of all, I felt the protection of our Guru. Thank you Mohanji for your grace and protection. Pranaams to your holy feet…

“The power of purity immunizes from the rocks and shocks of daily existence. The power of purity radiates. Purity empowers.  Purity strengthens. Purity liberates. It brings gratitude into existence.”

Jai Mohanji!

7. Divine Grace to Animals, the perfect example of Love and Compassion: Subhasree, London

Mohanji’s love and compassion for all beings of Mother Earth has been seen on many occasions.

Mohanji on animals, nature and compassion

https://qawithmohanji.wordpress.com/2015/07/06/passion-for-compassion/

I was fortunate enough to witness one such incident during my trip to Serbia in November 2017 and I would like to share it here.

As a part of a charity initiative, ACT Serbia brought  approximately a metric ton (around 2204 pounds) of  dog food and visited a dog shelter run single handed by a lady. More than 350 abandoned, now rescued dogs are sheltered there. Mohanji was with us during  this visit.
We reached the shelter and soon a little puppy walked up to me. I picked  him up and noticed that he was shivering.  I cuddled him. Comforted, he started licking my face and throat and soon buried his face in my arms and dozed off!

puppy1

Food bags were being unloaded and everyone was carrying them inside (including Mohanji).  I wanted to lay the puppy on the floor and join the group in their effort, but the puppy wouldn’t budge! So I continued to hold him while he enjoyed his nap! Mohanji noticed this, came near me and commented that the puppy and I appeared to  share a bond and a past connection; hence my trip to Serbia all the way from London to share my motherly love. We laughed, but deep within, I felt that it was true. I already shared a close bond with this puppy.

Mohanji then said, “It’s a very good dog. It needs a home. See if someone can adopt it and take it home.” At that point in time, I wished I could take him home! I have been resisting my son’s demand to bring a puppy home as a pet for years; now as I held the puppy, I wished to take him home! I even mentioned this to Mohanji, and wondered how difficult it would be to take him along in the flight. He nodded. I was determined to give him a home, even if it could not be mine. So I asked the volunteers. I even offered to sponsor this puppy if someone is ready to adopt. But unfortunately, at that point of time, no one was ready.
I kept holding him, wishing that someone would adopt him and give him a nice home.
Mohanji walked by again, this time he stroked the puppy’s head with immense love. He kept his hand on its head. The puppy looked up to him. As he placed his hand on the puppy’s head, he closed his eyes and slept, as if he were witnessing the divine energy that was flowing to him.

puppy3Then Mohanji gave him Shaktipath on his third eye. I was choked and teary eyed at this sight! I couldn’t believe the good fortune of the puppy. How fortunate was he to receive Shaktipath from Mohanji ! Even as an animal, his life was being cleansed through the process and it felt like someone very close to me was being blessed.  I was also amazed and filled with gratitude to Mohanji, for his unconditional love and compassion. It did not discriminate between  species, just as the sun shines brightly for all on earth. In the eyes of the Supreme Consciousness, Para Brahma, all beings are his creation and hence equal. Comparison and partiality lies in the human mind only.

Strangely after receiving the Shaktipath, the puppy woke up with a lot of energy and started moving around. He walked around me in a circle and then moved away. Mohanji said, “Look, he is doing a pradkshina” (circumambulation), thanking you and expressing his gratitude!” I realised all of us could learn from this little one. We left the shelter but my heart was with the little puppy. I wondered if he was going to find a loving home. After two days, I returned to London, my experience with the puppy still   fresh. I kept talking to everyone about him and hoped he would be adopted soon.

In a couple of week’s time Deviji messaged me, saying one of the volunteers (Spomenka)from Serbia went back to  the dog shelter and has indeed adopted the same puppy. Though Spomenka already had few dogs with her and had no intention of getting one more, she was moved when she heard Mohanji wants the puppy to get a home!

puppy2.jpg

I was so glad to hear that the puppy had found a home. At this thought, tears began flowing from my eyes with gratitude for Mohanji. This was no less than a miracle. He said this dog must find a home. He gave shaktipath to it. Few days later, he found a home; and in the home of a Mohanji devotee! Well I don’t know if I will ever meet the puppy again; not that it is important. Knowing that he lives somewhere in a safe home, comforts me.

Now more than a year later, I got to see the photos of the puppy, now known as ‘Zen’ enjoying in his home with mum Spomenka! The love is eternal.

My gratitude to Mohanji for spreading  unconditional love, enabling two very different beings to meet and share a few moments of unconditional love. The puppy and I enjoyed each other’s love and I treasure it forever. This is perfect example of the eternal love that Mohanji has for all the beings of Mother Earth. My heartfelt gratitude at the feet of such Master.

Jai Mohanji!

8.  Protection in all states: Sunita Madan, India

While we know about Mohanji’s protective hand shielding us always, I experienced it first-hand one night. Since 29th December, 2018, there has been a lot of turbulence in my life due to my ailing mother and her hospitalisation. I spent much of my time in the hospital. Yesterday though I was not feeling too well and I came home to get some sleep.

In my dream state, I saw dark energies coming towards me but before they could touch me I found myself screaming Mohanji’s name twice and instantly they disappeared. Then I found myself loudly reciting the Gayathri mantra. All was well and the dark energies also moved towards the light. 

The following question and Mohanji’s response are very relevant here.

Q: I dreamt of you, is it possible to connect with you even through dreams?

Mohanji : So any dream;  you interpret it as you wake up, “It’s a dream, I met Mohanji,” may not be a dream. It could be a connection which we had astrally.

Mohanji on dreams

It was a truly amazing experience. I realized we are powerful because we have Mohanji. Nothing negative can touch us when we are connected. Complete faith and surrender are the only requirements. We are all blessed. Pranaams at your lotus feet. Jai Mohanji!

 9. Grace at work: Surya Sujan, Kerala

Mohanji_school_friends.jpg

I met my school friend, Mohanji on 26th December, 2018 after 38 years. I am still in a daze that I was able to meet Mohanji, one, who I thought was beyond my reach. None from my school are able to believe this meeting happened. Since then many miracles seem to be occurring in my life! I would like to share one of them as below:

My senior officer, who I report to at work, was awaiting his promotion order on Jan 4th, 2019.  He found out that his replacement was a direct recruit; someone I did not know and one who was known to be quite rude, with no respect for age or seniority. Obviously, everyone in our office was dejected. I am the second in command in the office and I was also dispirited. I stay in Kannur and work in Calicut, which is 100 km away.  I have fortunately been coming in a little later and leaving a little early. Since I have a long commute, I was allowed this privilege and I must say I had become accustomed to this relaxed work ethic.  However, I suspected the new officer would not be kind enough to grant this privilege. I also dreaded working with him.

With all these questions and worries racing through my mind, I entered my room and saw a message from Mohanji , “Are you free to talk?” Mohanji had promised to call me back after our school reunion but had been very busy with his travel and work schedule. We started talking about various issues. Suddenly, my senior came to my room and announced that there was a new order intimating a change in the appointment of the person replacing him. The new person was none other than a friend from Kannur! I couldn’t believe what had just transpired! My anxiety and apprehension had been taken care of and additionally, I   had company for the long commute to work.

mohanji_with_surya

How did this happen, I wondered! I was completely relaxed now. When I conveyed this to Mohanji, he just laughed. But I believe I know who worked the magic!

Faith is courage. Faith is strength. Faith is power!

mohanji_blessing

All the above stories with different flavours of Mohanji’s protection only indicate the one and the same essence – Omnipresent Mohanji is always available and provides the shield of protection to all His devotees when someone reaches out to Him through thoughts, prayers or even a physical message.

The next time you sing Mohanji’s Aarati, the following lines will show you how accurately these lyrics were created!

Sankatmochan bankar, dur dukh karna,

Swami dur dukh karna

Apne bhakton ka haath, apne bhakton ka haath

thame tum rakhna, Swami thame tum rakhna

Meaning:

Being the dispeller of danger, O Guru, alleviate our misery, and keep on holding the hands of your faithful devotees.

Mohanji And I ‘MET’

By Rekha Murali, Chennai, India

While contemplating on the various transformations happening within me and around me, there were some realisations on certain things, which I feel are very important. Each one of us has a deep connection with Mohanji but the way we accept it or sustain it is different. Some of us need His physical touch or presence while others feel Him within, being connected to His consciousness.

met_1

As we connect, we become one with Mohanji! Even in this state, I sometimes can see the mind taking control, bringing in some negative influences through thought or word. The negative thoughts often come out of expectations. The question that came up was – I am connected to Mohanji, and with Him beside me what happens when such expectations arise?

Reviewing some situations in which such negative thoughts occurred, I realised it was ownership of the situation that gave rise to the thought. At the same time, Mohanji also takes care of me in such situations. Whatever desire arose with the ownership, He fulfilled it. Why does He do that? He gently assures me that I am not wrong in thinking the way I did and that it is ok to feel so. I am not taken to task by Mohanji for having such a thought and feeling low because of it. By fulfilling the expectation, (if it doesn’t harm me or others) He helps me to forget and move on. He solves these expectations through experiences, messages, or any which way He thinks is right. All that I need to do is be aware and understand the way in which the situation has worked out. Thus, He removes the negativities, bringing in a sense of calm and emptiness inside. He then works His magic to fill me in with what is needed for my elevation.

Mohanji just accepts each of us so graciously, expecting nothing in return. So, being aware when such a thought rises is the first step. The second step is to surrender the thought/expectation to Him. Mohanji then hand holds us through our journey with love and compassion.

So, let us surrender with faith and gratitude to our beloved Master. Let us hold His extended hand and be confident that whatever He does is for our highest good.

met_3

One such incident where Mohanji lovingly took care of me and at the same time showed me how He did it was a huge lesson that I will cherish for ever.

Recently, I was initiated into becoming a medium for Mohanji Energy Transfer (MET). All charged up and excited, I was ready to act as a conduit for Mohanji in the weekly Power of Purity Meditation conducted every Sunday in Chennai, India. The POP that I planned to give energy transfer was to be held on December 2nd 2018, but of course, Mohanji had other and better plans for me. Here’s what happened.

Being a South Indian, I am fond of my morning filter coffee. However, as I strongly felt that the mind has to be controlled with immediate effect, I decided to stop the coffee overnight. It was also causing acidity in me. So on December 1st, I just didn’t have my morning cuppa!  All was well till lunch time, but developed a severe migraine at the back of my head and slowly the nausea and vomiting started. This continued for almost six to seven hours. The gross mind immediately told me it was the withdrawal symptoms of stopping my favourite black coffee. I silently prayed to Mohanji and I went to meet my family physician. But again, that was not to be. The doctor didn’t turn up. By then the vomiting stopped but the pounding in the head continued and I was exhausted. The head felt very heavy throughout!

As a regular Kriya practitioner, I somehow managed to do the 10 minute Kriya too (I had done one in the morning luckily) and hit the bed. My plan of going for the POP session the next day came crashing down. There was no way that I could attend the POP session and give Mohanji’s energy transfer, as I could barely stand up the next morning.  I listened to the craving of my mind and had a small cup of regular coffee in the morning thinking that was the cause for the headache. The gratification lasted for just about an hour. The pounding of the head commenced again (this time the side of the head) and I meekly climbed back into bed. I lay in that state the entire Sunday, praying to Mohanji and chanting the Mohanji Gayatri whenever I remembered. By evening, the pain subsided a little into a dull throb enabling me to complete my Kriya.

The pattern repeated itself again the next morning and I could not go to work. By now three full days had gone by. Gradually, I started feeling better. The only surprising thing was that I was able to keep up my Kriya practice. I continued taking half a cup of light coffee.  One thing I need to mention here is that I had very powerful dreams of Mohanji, snakes, blessings of Masters etc., in spite of the headache. Sleep was scarce but the dreams in the short spells were strange and powerful.

The 4th day finally dawned. The head felt so light, with just a slight headache remaining. I felt as if I had lifted a load off my head and put it down. I also felt unusually happy and with a skip in my step commenced my daily routine. I went to work and had a beautiful day. I thanked Mohanji sincerely and went about my work, having avoided medication. Little did I understand what My Guru in all His love and compassion had planned for me. In the meantime, there was severe pain in the left shoulder and the nape of my neck. I just ignored it, confident that Mohanji was working on me and continued with my routine.

The headache was like wearing a crown, with slight heaviness around the head. In spite of this, my Kriya sessions were very powerful, and my entire body would pulsate with energy while doing Kriya. The region of the forehead, eyes and face would throb and I could sense the pulse in every part of my body. It was as though the region around the Ajna chakra and above were activated. I still didn’t realise the impact of what Mohanji was doing for me. I loved the sensations, thanked the Masters and stuck to my practice. This continued the whole of the previous week. A lot of pent up emotions were also surfacing and I would be in tears while doing Kriya and the breathing would  accelerate.

Soon, my friend Revathy asked me about our plan for doing a 360 degree meditation together. We decided to conduct it on 7th December and I quickly posted an invite in the Chennai group. Before I knew it, seven of us met at my place for the meditation including two new comers.  By then I felt it was the right time to do Mohanji’s Energy Transfer for the participants and surrendered the intention to Mohanji. I did the Gayathri, sought His blessings, and we commenced the meditation at the appointed time.

The entire meditation session was highly charged and the room was filled with Mohanji’s energy. Quietly, I commenced the Energy Transfer, all the time fully conscious of the fact that Mohanji was working through me and I was just a conduit. I felt such a deep connection as though I had just merged into His consciousness. Tears rolled down my cheeks, drenching me as I moved from one person to another. My whole being was throbbing with Mohanji’s energy but there was a feeling of calmness and bliss within me. My heart overflowed with unconditional love and compassion towards each participant. In an instant, I realised that this is what Mohanji feels when He looks at us  – He showers us with His unconditional love and blissful energy that makes us feel so safe and happy in His aura.  I could sense the energy flowing through my hands and out of me into the other person.   As though on autopilot, I moved from one person to another, not knowing what I was doing. I was aware of just one fact, I was the medium and Para Brahma was working through me.  The sense of doer-ship fell off completely as I stood overwhelmed, immersed in His energy. Once the Energy Transfer was completed, I sat down quietly and joined the meditation. My entire body was throbbing and felt so vibrant, but tears flowed ceaselessly and the breath began coming out in gasps. I realised I was also being showered with His energy and cleansing was happening. At the end of the session, each one shared their beautiful and powerful experiences and we wrapped up the satsang with the Shiva Kavacham.

met_4

The story does not end here. I was blissfully unaware of the reason why things had unfolded as they did. The next morning (Saturday), I listened to the audio testimonial of Sujatha on my way to work. I was so overwhelmed and mesmerised by her narration and the sincere power of her words washed over me. Once it was over, I switched off all sounds for the rest of my drive, just contemplating on what she shared. It was then the moment of understanding hit me. Everything clicked into place. Tears of gratitude flowed and I really don’t know how I reached my destination that day. All the events of the past week came rushing back and they unfolded step by step. The reason for the delay in giving Mohanji’s Energy Transfer, my so called sickness and the final meditation session were all orchestrated by dear Mohanji! I was not totally empty as a channel for His energy to flow. Mohanji had to work on me overtime to clear and cleanse me, and prepare me to receive His energy. The migraine, the vomiting, the heaviness, all these were part of the cleansing process. I also realised that once the headache left me, I had a feeling of emptiness within me. I had just carried on with my daily activities with a sense of acceptance and calm. What kept me going were my sadhana practices of Mohanji Gayatri, aarati and Kriya. Mohanji kept me in that state – a state of emptiness so that I could carry out my seva activities too! He had kept me empty and connected with Him. I just flowed through the day not even aware that He was working on me! The pain around the head was also a clearing of the various chakras enhanced by Kriya practice. No wish is left unfulfilled by Him. All that is required is complete surrender to Him. He takes care of each one of us and does everything in a thorough manner. Every job to completion! Mohanji was DOING HIS JOB!

I am eternally grateful to you dear Mohanji. You are an ocean of love and compassion! Thank you for each and every blessing that you have showered on me and for being by my side every moment.

Mohanji Satcharita Chapter 3 – December 2018

“Shri Guru Murat Manohar, Pranav Swaroop Sakhaya,
Kamal Nayan Sukh Dayak, Sakal Siddha Svaroopaya
Mudhan hoon Ye Janke, Bhaju Keshav… Putraya,
Maan Mandir Mahi Baso, Puran Roop Tu, Priyaya.
Jai Mohanji Aadi Shiv Shambhu, Jai Anant Kripa MahaSindhu,
Datta Svaroop Aanadi Kripalu, Jyoti Roop Tu Param Dayalu.”

This above verse from ‘Mohanji Chaalisa’ by Sanjay Acharya describes the divine form of Mohanji from a devotee’s heart filled with the nectar of love and devotion for Guru,

The meaning of this verse is as below:

“Thy pleasing form, O Guru, appears to me as the very embodiment of the holy Pranava (Om)
O lotus-eyed perfected Master (siddha), your presence is an assurance of bliss and joy
And so, O son of Kesavan, this ignorant fool implores you to
Please come and reside, in full splendor, within the temple of my heart.

Glory to Mohanji, of exalted state like that of the Primal Guru Shiva
Glory to You, O ocean of limitless divine grace
You are verily the eternal Lord Dattatreya Himself,
Most compassionate One, divine primordial light of Beingness.”

As Mohanji says,

If our aim is to reach God, just look within. Only when you experience God within, you can experience God outside. If you do not get to see God within, you will only see sundry forms outside. If you want to see God inside, you need conscious emptying, trashing of all kinds of internal garbage and coming into terms with yourself as the silent substratum that is the source of your experiences. When silence is established, which also means thoughtlessness, God begins to be visible just like sun sprouting out of thick layers of clouds. Eventually, when all clouds disappear, it is just sunshine. Only sunshine. Just God. “

With loving salutations and reverence to our beloved Guru Brahmarishi Mohanji, we offer the 3rd chapter of the Mohanji Satcharita to you. The Guru, the one who has experienced the Truth, the enlightened one, is described as a lit candle, who shows the way to the seekers of light. Unwavering devotion, selfless service and reverence to the Guru will lead us eventually to find the inner light buried deep within. It is said that the Guru within recognises and leads us to the Guru without, as both are one and the same.

In this chapter, experiences of divine vision, divine protection from theft and divine healing are shared by devotees who have experienced their beloved Guru Mohanji in many different ways. When we have firm faith, loving devotion and complete surrender, the presence of Guru is felt in every moment of our lives. May these loving sharing of experiences inspire us to dedicate our lives to the Guru and reach the highest.

In this chapter of ‘Mohanji Satcharita’, we are sharing nine stories in the following categories:

  • Divine Protection From Theft
  • Divine Healing
  • Divine Grace

Divine Protection From Theft

Each one of us has a personality that is unique. That probably explains why our experiences with our Guru are also varied. We relate the following stories of divine protection, each is unique and profound in its own way. Mohanji’s words, “I am always with you” gives us strength and confidence when we come across difficulties in life. He truly is with us, as can be seen from the incidents narrated below. All persons involved were able to clearly see ‘Mohanji in action,’ so to speak!

Mohanji on Protection:

Mohanji talks about ‘nagamanikkam’ – “When you realise that you are protected, you are liberated!”

1. A Miracle Beyond The Logical Mind: Yohan P, UK

Yohan_450

It was the evening of Friday, 26-Oct-18. After work, I went grocery shopping on my way home and used the London tube (underground).

The Jubilee train carriage was full with passengers. I placed my rucksack on the seat behind me and held the shopping bag on my lap. It was a typical highly pressured working week and I had preparations to complete for the ‘Day in Mohanji’s Consciousness’ event the following morning.  I reached home around 6.30 pm and played with my son. As 7.30 pm approached, preparation priorities came to my mind. Suddenly the thought occurred, “Where’s my rucksack?” I told my wife that I had left it on the train. Then came the questions, how could you forget, why are you so forgetful, what about the car keys, you’ve lost it etc.

I silently asked Mohanji, ‘I really need your help!’ An intuition flashed within – ‘Go to Stanmore Station which is at the end of the Jubilee line.’   I had alighted at the previous station at 6.15 pm, over an hour ago. As I was walking down the stairs, fairly calm, Mohanji’s inner voice asked me to be more anxious and act as if I’ve really lost something of value.
To my dismay, the Station Supervisor confirmed that nothing had been handed in by cleaning staff who would have been the most likely to spot the rucksack. I replied the train would probably have gone back to Stratford (the opposite end of the line & 27 station stops away). Nodding his head hopelessly, he added, “Let me try calling the Wembley train depot” and I wondered why call Wembley and not Stratford?

The Wembley Station Supervisor confirmed that a rucksack matching my description had indeed been handed in with car keys.  On arriving at Wembley and after verifying my identity, the rucksack was returned with all but some money missing. I asked who had handed in the bag, and response was, the train driver.

The next day during the Power of Purity Meditation, Mohanji appeared in my inner vision and showed me how His Astral body was ‘overlaid’ on the train driver, and how the train driver then proceeded to hand in the rucksack for lost property. The doubts arising in my mind vanished! When reviewing the contents of the bag, I was filled with even more gratitude.

In addition to the car keys, the rucksack also had the house keys, and the driver’s license with details of my full home address within my wallet. With Brexit creating economic uncertainty and fewer job opportunities here in UK, one can just imagine the potential dangers.

The analytical mind would call this a miracle.  Unbelievable!

Indeed, the Station Supervisor’s expression at Stanmore was filled with utter surprise when I returned back to thank him with the rucksack on my back.

In the realm of true Masters these happenings are common place. They dance beyond time and space in the eternal energy of timeless consciousness.

I’m sharing this experience as it’s certainly been a ‘darker’ period for a couple of years.  So I’m again reminded of the following:

  • Keep the faith.
  • Hold onto Mohanji (Guru Principle) like a baby monkey.
  • Serve using your innate gifts and talents like Hanuman.
  • Accept everything for your highest good and complete these karmic lessons.

I am eternally grateful beyond words to Mohanji and Baba. This incident is yet another example from the hundreds of other miracles that I’ve either forgotten or taken for granted.

Inspire others.

Love & Light – Yohan

2. Miracle During The London Retreat: Amanda Bevan, UK

Mandy_van_450

I thought, before any more time passes, I ought to share with you all a very interesting Mohanji miracle which happened to me during the London Retreat at Gilwell Park, on the weekend of August 11th, involving the strange disappearance of my beloved van.

 

I would like to begin by mentioning that the same day my shiny, silver VW transporter was delivered to me, last November, Mohanji appeared to me in a dream. He didn’t speak, but looked at me, bowed His head down and walked away. In my mind, I felt as though He felt maybe I had overspent and wasn’t too impressed.

As I was travelling down the M1 from Liverpool for the Retreat, I had to divert from my usual route on the M25 as my exit at junction 26 was closed due to an accident. I ended up in London Gateway services to charge up my phone as I was using it as my sat nav. I pulled up to a fairly empty car park, and parked as close as I could to the entrance as it was starting to get dark and was also raining. After around 15 mins of charging the phone, I felt somebody squeeze my arm and when I looked around, there was nobody there. I brushed it off as maybe it was the lead of my phone stretching over me and that was the end of that.

15 mins later, I returned to where I had parked my van, but it had mysteriously, completely vanished from the space where I had locked it up. All I had left were my keys, my phone and the clothes I stood up in. I knew there and then I was in for an interesting weekend. Luckily, my good friend Mark was able to come and collect me whilst I called the police and the insurance company.

We arrived at Gilwell Park before midnight and I went to bed in a state of shock but happy to arrive at my destination, even without clothes, toiletries and my vehicle. I was soon to be reunited with Mohanji after 10 long months! The seminar was amazing and I was donated some lovely new clothes by some very kind and generous people. I decided that I would not let the incident spoil my weekend and kept my faith that I would somehow get the van back before I went back north.

After 2 days had passed, and no news from the police, I thought I should think about getting a replacement van from the insurance. I was horrified when they told me this was only the case if my van was being fixed in a garage. As it had been stolen, I would have no replacement van. I suddenly felt very deflated but then out of the window, I could see Mohanji on the path in the distance. I prayed to Him, if He was really my Master, why would He let me go through all this hassle, cost me so much money and inconvenience just to be in His presence and I begged Him in my mind to find my van.

Within half an hour of having these thoughts, my phone rang and it was the police to say my van had been found. Dumped back at the same services it was taken from, but parked illegally at the opposite end of the car park from where I had left it. I was overjoyed and begged poor Mark to drive me all the way back to London Gateway, almost an hour away as I didn’t really believe this could be happening until I saw it with my own eyes.

When we arrived, I was amazed to see that there was no damage to the lock. I was even more shocked to see that everything was still in their places as I had left them. My handbag, purse and money, all still there! The police were quite bewildered as there looked like there had been no tampering with the ignition and the kind thieves had even locked it back up.

I’ve since found out how easy it is to steal a vehicle without a key from my mechanic friend. However, the biggest mystery is the fact that it was returned, undamaged. This caused little inconvenience to my weekend, although I’m sure Mark wouldn’t agree!

All I can say, is I know that this could not have happened without being in the presence of a true Master who has come here to teach us about letting go, acceptance, love and faith in Him. I have no explanation for where that van went nor who with, but it was surely a miracle that I got it back just in time to drive back home, filled with love and joy of a weekend I will never forget. Salutations to Mohanji.

Yours sincerely
Mandy Bevan

Divine Healing

Mohanji on healing –

  “When you have deep faith it can cut across karma and heal you”

 

We share below the healing experiences of three women.  While the reasons they sought healing are varied, just like each of our lives are, the outcome, the relief they experienced and the divine source of the healing are the same!

3. Healing From Pain: Shyama J, UK

Arthesh_450

Mohanji’s love, compassion and protection are always evident, not just for us but for our loved ones too. My fifteen year old son had a dental operation under general anaesthesia a few days ago. The operation was a little more complicated than expected. After nearly twelve hours at the hospital, he came home in some pain and discomfort. As the anaesthetic wore off, his pain increased and he continued taking pain relief every four hours as advised.

Expecting him to get better by the third day, it was worrisome to see one side of his face swelling and a haematoma (defined as a collection of blood outside the blood vessels) developing near some of the stitches in the gum. In the past, whenever I’ve asked him about healing, he has refused, saying that he doesn’t believe in it. This time when I asked, he was in so much pain that he reluctantly agreed, but asked if it would work if he didn’t have faith in it. I replied that I had enough faith for the both of us and he didn’t have anything to lose by giving it a try.

We sat in the prayer room and after explaining a little about what Mai-Tri healing is and how it’s done, we did the healing. It was late in the night and he went to bed immediately afterwards. During the night, I woke him up twice to administer pain relief and noticed that the swelling had increased and his body felt a little too warm. Wondering if he was developing an infection and planning to take him to the hospital in the morning, I went back to bed.

Amazingly, when he woke up in the morning, the swelling had reduced and there was no temperature. He became better as the day progressed and was well enough to go to school the next day. He continued taking minimum pain relief for couple more days and recovered completely.

My heartfelt gratitude and love to Mohanji for taking care of all of us, as always!

Jai Mohanji!

4. Healing From Chronic Pain: Rekha Murali, India

Mohanji’s compassion has no boundaries. This is what I experienced in my initial interactions with Mohanji. When He says, “I am with you,” He really means it. These are not mere words; the extent to which He clears us, empties us of all the samskaras (impressions, karmic baggage) to fill us with the divine, can be realised only to a very small extent. For a gross mind such as mine to recognise this, it took two years! Koti pranaams to you, dear Mohanji!

Since 2013, I had been suffering from severe low back pain caused by a nerve prolapse requiring surgery. The doctor had warned me that I needed to be very careful and had put me on medications to prolong the inevitable. But there was a pattern to the pain. Every six months from thereon, it would start hurting and I would be bed-ridden for nearly a month, unable to take care of my basic needs. I was on alternate healing and allopathy during this time.

In 2015 I met Mohanji, and soon after started communicating with Him through chats. The following year (2016), I was bracing myself for another painful relapse of the back pain and it happened. I would just lie on my bed, crying and mentally pleading with Mohanji to remove the pain. Once while on a real chat with Him, I mentioned my condition to Him for the first time, and added that I was going wrong somewhere.  He said, “You are going wrong nowhere. You are right. You need to tame your mind which is over worked.” He added, “Connect to me more intensely. Leave your mind with me. And when you detach your mind from your pain, the pain will reduce.”

Although I knew that He was right, at that point, the pain was unbearable, and my mind seemed to take control. How do I detach from the mind, particularly when bed ridden and unable to even turn or move. It is then that the mind becomes over active and plants its seeds.

Little did I know then, that He had been working on me as promised and had removed a lot of garbage from the mind and body!

Soon after, Mohanji came to Chennai (where I live) and He sent word that He would like to meet me.  I still had back pain but could move around gently.  Luckily for me, He was staying at my sister’s place and my sister asked me to spend the night there too.  Surprisingly, I had no pain when I was in His energy field. I took His blessings and to my astonishment, I was able to offer my pranaams (prostrations) at His feet, which until that moment was an impossible task.  I assisted my sister with serving Him and spent a blissful evening. Again I was totally unaware, that He was working on me and healing my condition. The next morning again in a gentle and loving voice, Mohanji asked me how my back was. I was feeling so happy that I could not even reply and showed Him the thumbs up sign!  My heart was filled with gratitude and bliss.  He then left for His next destination.

Thereafter, I recovered completely within a month and was able to resume most of my other activities, including driving.  But the most beautiful part is that since then for the last two years, I have not had a single attack of back pain! In such a casual way, Mohanji held my hand, carried me through a difficult part of my life, and showered me with His healing, blessings and love. I am for ever grateful to Him. He taught me the biggest lesson in life – to let go of the mind!

Since then, whenever the mind takes charge, I try to push it back as His words resonate within me. “Pain is in the body. Suffering is in the mind. Why should pain affect the mind when your mind is connected to me? You can convert every pain to karmic relief by detaching your mind from it. I am with you.”

Jai Mohanji!

With immense love and gratitude

5. A Healing Miracle: Monika B, Serbia

Monika B

Today I feel especially grateful. Miracles do happen when you have faith! For a long time, I had a medical condition (I don’t like to use the word ‘illness’) for which the doctors said, “There is no cure and you’ll have to take the medicine all your life. But don’t worry it is not a deadly disease.”  I’m smiling as I recollect because what was said to be impossible actually wasn’t so! I sincerely respect doctors and traditional medicine; I really do respect their hard work and dedication. However, something in me refused to accept that taking the harmful medicine all my life was the only solution and the only truth. I tried almost everything and many times I was disappointed, but I’m grateful to all those who tried to help me. Sometimes, doctors’ voices were very scary, but even then I knew that something else could be done. I knew that there was something sitting inside of me that I had to let go.

Luckily, I was blessed to meet my Guru Mohanji three years ago who helped me to go deep inside myself, and to remove so many blockages. All the retreats, meditations, healings, visible as well as the invisible hand of Mohanji, all the techniques that He used helped immensely. They were there only to guide us to ourselves. He is just showing us where to look, but not what to see. And He never says that we MUST do anything. There is always freedom of choice, which I really appreciate. I only listened to my inner voice. One may call it intuition and knew that I was in the right path. I didn’t have any doubts. I am eternally grateful. How can I ever repay?! He told me “Don’t worry, things will be alright, I do my job.” I have always had faith in Him.

Every disease, when it’s already on a physical level, is only the manifestation of what was sitting inside of us for a long, long time. Suppressed emotions. If you don’t cure the root of the problem, the problem will appear again and again. I felt that was the only truth. And it is!

My intention isn’t to advise you to go away from your doctors and not take any necessary medicine. Even if you don’t have a Guru, the lesson that I learnt from our dearest Mohanji and experienced would be – listen to your body. Listen to yourself. Spend time with yourself. Get to know yourself. There is something sitting inside you… maybe it is anger, hatred, sorrow, pains from the past, guilt… Find it, face it, and let it go… Don’t run away from it, it won’t go. How you feel IS important. Emotional health is directly linked to physical health. Be positive but don’t be ‘artificially’ positive. Keep emptying yourself from all the negative things that are sitting inside you and making you sick, although it takes time and effort. Love yourself and do not give up!

Mohanji’s compassionate nature and healing energy has helped many and continues to do so, even as we read this blog. Being aware of the same and placing firm faith in Him can truly help us to lead fulfilling lives!

Divine Grace

All of us have desires on a regular basis. But there are some desires which the mind fathoms but cannot be verbalised. Many of these desires are linked to the divine or the Guru. It may appear to be an impossible task due to our conditioning but the desires remain. How can these desires be manifested? It happens only through the Grace of the Guru. A true Master understands the deepest desires of his devotees and satisfies them in unexpected ways! Mohanji, in his unpredictable style, has enabled deeper connections and faith through manifestation of desires of his disciples. Here are some wonderful experiences shared by Tayiji, Jyoti Bahl, Sanjay Acharya and Subhasree, in which through divine grace, their innermost dreams were realised!

6. The Divine Manifestations: Vasanta (Tayiji), India

Tayiji_1.jpg‘Mohanji Sahasranaamavali’ and ‘Mohanji Ashtottari’ – are the 1008 and 108 names of Mohanji respectively are written by Aunt Vasanta, lovingly called as Tayiji. Tayiji has also written ‘Mohanji Chalisa’ .

Tayiji and her sister lovingly called as Amma are very deeply connected followers of Mohanji. Mohanji respects them as His mothers and loves to spend time with them with their abundant love and caring.  Tayiji had a deep desire to see visions especially of Mohanji in His various forms and mentally prayed very deeply to Mohanji. Her pure desire manifested itself with Mohanji’s grace and she started seeing Mohanji in His various expanded forms. She documented this by naming the form of Mohanji that she saw, felt or experienced each time. This became the Ashtottari – the 108 names of Mohanji. As her experiences grew, this gradually expanded to become the Sahasranaamavali – the 1008 names of Mohanji. She was able to experience those forms (or states) because her deep surrender to Mohanji was such that she has ceased to exist as herself.

Mohanji once asked her why she was writing the Sahasranaamavali and Ashtottari for Him when it is typically written for the various forms of Gods (Shiva, Vishnu, Ganesha, etc). Tayiji innocently but firmly responded that since Mohanji had manifested the various powers of God, then it should definitely be written for Him as well. Tayiji had planned to complete the Sahasranaamavali on her birthday (2nd December) and, on completion, informed Mohanji that she managed to complete it before her birthday as she had wished. Mohanji told her, “How can it be completed before your birthday? It will be complete before my birthday.” At that point, Tayiji did not understand Mohanji’s cryptic comment. Mohanji’s birthday (Feb 23rd) was a few months away. Subsequently, she went back to review the Sahasranaamavali and noticed that there was a mistake in the numbering and hence it was actually incomplete. As predicted, it was completed for Mohanji’s birthday. 🙂

The Sahasranaamavali and Ashtottari provide us a window into the stature of Mohanji and also bear testament to the Grace that flows when surrender, purity and faith flower fully in a devotee. We bow down to both the devotee and the Master and pray that we too experience and reach that state of unity that is critical for us to reach the hallowed goal of liberation.

We sincerely hope that the Mohanji Sahasranaamavali and Mohanji Ashtottari and Mohanji Chalisa serve as a useful tools to enhance our connection with the Master. They are available on Amazon and iTunes for your listening pleasure.

7. Mohanji’s Amrit In My Life: Jyoti Bahl, India

Jyoti Bahl

It is only through Mohanji’s and the Guru Mandala’s immense grace that, in this life I am able to sing devotional songs in praise of God and the Guru. It is a divine blessing that I am able to compose and sing songs that expresses my devotion. In this journey, I surrender to Mohanji completely requesting Him to guide me through the entire process, whether it is writing the songs, setting it to music, singing and recording it. And as always, every single time, He helps me! Every time, for each and every song, when I sit in front of His photo, He lets the words flow, He lets the music flow through me. Many times, the person with whom I record my songs, is surprised to see how the music comes to me. He cannot comprehend easily how my Gurudev is helping me in creating these songs – the lyrics, the music, the rhythm etc. When I record the songs, I always keep Mohanji’s photo in front of me and everything flows smoothly.

One day, while I was practicing Mohanji’s Chalisa, my sister asked me to write Mohanji’s Amritwani.  I told her that this has to come from Mohanji and if He wants it, He will definitely help me write it.

I sat in front of Mohanji’s photo and He started giving me the words, which fitted the usual Amritwani rhythm very well. I was stunned when I read the lyrics, as most of the words were new to me! I realised, its only with the grace of Mohanji that these words came to me as the lyrics of Amritwani.

I know I’m nothing. I am not the doer. With so many obstacles in life and unfavourable situations, still the way everything flows smoothly, shows Mohanji’s grace and His blessings which is behind every single song that I sing.

A recent incident proves this, how Mohanji enables everything to flow through me while protecting me completely. It was the day when I was going to the studio to record Mohanji’s Chalisa and Amritwani. It was raining at that time. While I was climbing the stairs, I suddenly slipped and the file I was holding in my hand fell into muddy water. There was a photo of Mohanji in that file, which also fell out in that muddy water. I was in tears and was cursing myself to have let the photo of my Bhagwan fall into that muddy water. There were so many questions in my head as to why this happened.

During the recording, suddenly I felt a message coming from Mohanji, “You were going to fall from the stairs. I saved you by making my photo fall down.” I was dumbstruck! Oh, My God! We are not even aware of the risks and challenges that come our way, but Mohanji is there like a shield, protecting us every moment! It’s needless to say that if I had slipped and fallen down the stairs that day, then the recording of the Chalisa and Amritwani would have been incomplete! Not only did He save me from the fall, Mohanji helped me complete my activity too. Once again, this incident showed me, without Mohanji’s divine grace, I have no existence.

I also realise that the ability to sing devotional bhajans is part of my sadhana and seva in this life. It is a seva to mankind by spreading praises and devotion to the Guru. Hence, not only my Gurudev but the entire Guru Mandala empowers me to perform in this capacity. Not only me, but everyone who supports in this seva, also gets empowered, protected and blessed. I have witnessed this myself. The pure soul, who helps me in my recordings, is not a follower of Mohanji, in fact who had never any inclination towards spirituality and was bound by a bad habit of alcoholism, has shown tremendous improvement. This transformation is happening just by observing my devotion towards Mohanji and His protection and grace being showered on me. He conveyed recently that after the few recordings that he helped me with, he has noticed changes in his own family situations and he is coming out of his alcoholic habit. He started feeling the grace and blessing of Mohanji in his life too, even without meeting Mohanji! I realise that through recording Mohanji’s songs, he has established this connection which has brought so much positive changes in his life too.

My head bows at my Gurudev’s feet as I realise how His grace helps me accomplish my sadhana through my singing bhajans, and for blessing my life and others through His unlimited love and protection.

I would complete my experience through this bhajan that I surrender to my Gurudev

“Gurudev..Gurudev, Ab charno mein rakhlo mujhko Gurudev”

Jai Mohanji!

Jyoti Bahl

Note:

Jyoti Bahl has sung Mohanji Arati (female version), Mohanji Ashtottari, Mohanji Sahsranamavali, Mohanji Chalisa (by Tayiji) and many other devotional songs. You can listen to them on You Tube in the following links.

8. Mohanji Chalisa – The Flow Of Grace:  Sanjay Acharya, Toronto, Canada

Sanjay Acharya_450.jpg

Jai MohanJi!

I recall the day when the journey of expressing love through ‘Mohanji Chalisa‘ started! It was around the last week of Guru Purnima Days in July 2016. I was sitting in front of Shirdi Sai in my home temple. Suddenly a thought sparked in my mind and I asked Baba Sai, “Baba, I want to write Mohanji Chalisa. Please give me an indication.” Immediately I picked up the Book “Shri Sai Geeta.” This book has around 875 pages. I randomly opened a page and it was the page of ‘Shiv Chalisa.’ My eyes started flowing! Immediately I stood up and turned on my computer. During those days Mohanji was replying to messages on FB messenger. I remember the date & time. It was July 27, 07:09PM.  I asked Him, “O Mere Guruji. O Mohanji. Hey Shivtatva. Mujhe Ashirvad dijiye (Please bless me) ..mai aapki ‘Mohanji Chalisa’ likhna chahta hun. (I want to write the ‘Mohanji Chalisa.’ Please bless me). At 11:47PM on the same day I received His reply, “Bless you. Tathasthu! It will happen. (The message was with a rose and love symbols). When I read the message, oh my God! I started crying like anything. With shivering hands, I replied to Him, “Millions of thanks” and I sent Him sastaang namaskar…..And the journey of Mohanji Chalisa began!

Now the real challenge! Where to start from? How to start?  Because He has already blessed, it started to work out automatically! I felt that it should have exactly the same format as the Hanuman Chalisa! Okay! That’s done! Now what? Again, Mohanji inspired me. I went to my friend Shaloo Prasad’s house. She had recently moved to Canada at that time! She was singing the glory of her experiences with Mohanji during her stay in Gurgaon, India. Suddenly, she said, “Sanjay, do you know, very soon Mohanji’s Ashtottari Namavali (108 names) is coming out.” Again, a spark in my mind!!! Later, I had Mohanji’s 108 names and that was the real beginning of Mohnji Chalisa. I wrote down a few names and with Mohanji’s blessings, I (HE) started writing His Chalisa! Honestly, only with His inspiration and His blessings was it made possible. I referred to Mohanji’s 108 & 1008 names, Shirdi Sai Chalisa, Krishna Chalisa, Shiv Chalisa, Sathya Sai Baba Chalisa, Datta Bavni etc. Slowly He created the rhymes and sequences for 40 verses.  Sometimes it took weeks to write just one verse. I used to sit for hours in front of Baba and nothing would happen!

Once it happened that I was looking for a 3 letter word with ‘N’ as a third letter in Hindi script! This word was to fit in the third line. Trust me; I felt as if I had gone mad, as it had been three months and I still hadn’t found that word! Frustration was building up. Finally, I got mad with Baba Sai and started crying! After 15-20 minutes of shedding tears, I was very calm. Then I randomly opened Pothi (Over 800 pages of Sai Satcharita)! And Oh! It was Das Ganu Maharaj’s story (Das Ganu Maharaj was writing and singing Baba’s glory) whereby he wrote a poem about Baba after a particular leela (miracle) of Baba. I found the word ‘Mudhan’ (ignorant)! I said, “Oh! Baba! Oh! Mohanji! …Thank you soooooo much…..”

FinallyMohanji Chalisa’ was completed. I offered the completed ‘Mohanji Chalisa’ to Mohanji through my friend Nilesh Parekh during His visit to Canada in March 2017. After two days, one early morning, I heard the doorbell! I wondered who was at the door that early. My wife Alpa opened the door and I was watching from the staircase. It was Mohanji standing behind the doors! As soon I saw Him, we both literally shouted “Mohanji!…..” I fell down three steps, with tears in my eyes! HE came to bless me! Late during the previous evening, He went through ‘Mohanji Chalisa.‘ He said, “Acharya (my last name), it’s amazing. Kuchh kam baki hai (Still some modification is required). Bless you.” Later on, With His blessings, the write up was completed. I sang HIS Chalisa, in front of HIM, for the first time during the Rishikesh Retreat in December 2017. He was so happy, that like Bal Krishna (child form of Lord Krishna), He said to Vanamali Mata that, “He (Sanjay) wrote my Chalisa.

At that time, there was another Maa Ganga (River Ganges) flowing through my eyes! He then asked me to record it with professional music. Finally, with His grace, ‘Mohanji Chalisa’ was recorded and was published on Guru Purnima Day, 27th July 2018.

You can hear Mohanji Chalisa on You Tube in this link.

I offer Him my sashtang namskar. I love you Mohanji.

Mohanji_Subha_singing

With my heart filled with devotion and gratitude for Mohanji, I would like to share my experience from the Retreat with Mohanji from 11th to 14th August in London.

Two days before Mohanji was due to arrive in London, Priti and I were doing some prep work together and she mentioned a song that Mohanji enjoys, and later on, she sent the link that Jelena had sung. I heard it and just fell in love with it! Next morning, I started writing a blog on an experience that I had a couple of days ago. While writing that blog, this song popped into my head and I started humming the tune, even though I didn’t have the words. I felt like listening to it, so started playing Jelena’s recording repeatedly. Suddenly, I felt like singing it. So I got the lyrics from the internet and started singing. I don’t know what made me record this song when I sang, ‘Garuda Gamana tava..’ I then sent that recording to Jelena. She replied, “You are ready to sing together with Father tomorrow.” Seeing her message, I burst out laughing…….I singing, that too with Mohanji!!! She must be joking! Little did I know that the divine sends messages in any form! I just didn’t recognise it at that time.

The next day, Mohanji arrived, my busy schedule started, and I forgot about the song. On the day we were going for the retreat, Shyama and I were alone for some time in the morning hours, preparing breakfast, when a discussion about the bhajan programme that we were planning during the retreat came up. Suddenly I thought – can I sing ‘Garuda Gamana‘ and sang it in front of Shyama for her suggestion. She liked it and said I can sing. So I kept that aside then, thought I will go with the flow, not sure if I would get time to practice at the retreat amidst my other activities. On the second day, I got an opportunity to be part of the bhajans. When I was about to start, I felt as if I was forgetting the song. Before starting, I conveyed my gratitude to Mohanji to have given me this opportunity to sing one of His favourite songs in front of Him and requested Him to excuse me if I go wrong, as this is a new song for me. I mentioned the name ‘Garuda Gamana.’ At that moment, I could see the spark in Mohanji’s eyes. Honestly, I was very nervous, worried about making a mistake in the wordings, pronunciation or forgetting the tune! In my heart, I surrendered to Mohanji and started singing.

I was sitting just below the platform on which Mohanji’s chair was placed, near His feet. Suddenly, within a few seconds of starting the song, I noticed, Mohanji bending towards me and signalling to me to show the paper (in which I had the lyrics written down), with a mike in His hand. Spontaneously, I got up, kneeled on the platform next to His chair to be close enough to show the paper to Him. He slowly said, “Let’s start from the beginning,” and we did! The song just flowed! Those few minutes, I forgot myself, where I am, what I am doing…all I could feel was divinity. My heart was beating fast, breath was racing, but words were just flowing out of my mouth in sync with Mohanji. When we finished, I didn’t know how to express my gratitude, I just did pranam at Mohanji’s feet. Deviji said, “One more desire fulfilled.” “This wasn’t even in my wildest desires,” I thought and said, “…..how can I even dare to dream this!” Nevertheless, this was true and it happened, beyond my expectation, whether I desired it or not. Jelena’s message to me came true.

When you get something that you wish for, you get immense joy. And when you get something, that you don’t even dare to desire, how do you feel? It is difficult to comprehend, right? That’s how I was feeling. No words to thank my Guru, who doesn’t need me to tell Him anything, ask anything. He not only knows my thoughts, but also knows what I need and gives exactly that at the right time, not before or after, not a second late!

I hope you can sense my feelings by watching this video, which is not a professional one, but I am eternally grateful to Priti to have captured this amidst that sudden surprise and excitement. I will cherish this experience and the video my entire life and beyond. Well, every moment with Mohanji is ecstatic and joyful, but moments like these are pearls that need to be saved in the memory box with utmost care!

Thank you Priti, for introducing the song ‘Garuda Gamana‘ to me.

Thank you Jelena, for teaching me this song by sharing the beautiful recording.

Thank you Shayma, for encouraging me to sing during our bhajan session.

Above all, thank you Mohanji, for giving me what you gave me…beyond words!”

I leave you all with the link of the video to enjoy the divine grace of Mohanji that has no limit!

With my heart filled with Mohanji’s grace and love, koti pranam at the feet of my Gurudev,

The ‘Mohanji Satcharita’ is a treasure trove of true and sincere experiences as we journey through this life with guidance from a living Master. Each experience is a step leading us forward on this path of pathlessness, towards liberation. Sharing of these experiences helps others seek answers to situations that may be similar. It is the Guru who gives us these experiences as and when required. To such Guru, we offer our gartitude and leave you with this shloka from Guru Gita:

“Sosanam paapa-pankasya, Dipanam jnana-tejasaam,

Gurupadodakam Sanyal, Samsaararnava tarakam.”

Which means,

“The water of the Guru’s feet (has the power) to dry up the mire of one’s sins, to ignite the light of knowledge, and to take one smoothly across the ocean of the world. (Guru Gita Verse 13).”

Mohanji Satcharita Chapter 2 – November 2018

“Mohanji ek naam mein, saare roop samaye,

Unki krupa hoye toh, dukh koyi na sataaye.

Chaaro dhaam ka vaas hai, Mohanji ke Charan,

Kaialsh unka dhaam hai, kehlate dukh haran.

Jai Mohan Maharaj, Jai ho Yogi Raj.”

“In the one name of “Mohanji,” all forms are encompassed,

When His grace prevails, sufferings stay away.

Being at his feet is like visiting all four sacred places,

He who is known as the dispeller of woes, His home is Kailash,

Glory be to Mohanji Maharaj, Glory to the King of Yogis!”

The recently released devotional song about Mohanji, Mohanji Amritwani   expresses how devotees see Mohanji as ONE in ALL, ALL in ONE and that Mohanji is indeed the only path and only destination!

In every Yug (era), God or the eternal supreme power takes a physical incarnation to come to this Earth and liberate beings (human and others). This is for the benefit of the creation, and the beings. During a physical incarnation, God Himself goes through the process of birth and death, undergoing all the normal pains and discomforts associated with an incarnation. We see this in every religion, in every Master’s life.

So the question that arises is – Why do we have Mohanji in our lives? Mohanji’s incarnation in this time-frame, His advent in our lives, is not for His sake! The purpose of His incarnation is only for us, to lead us towards liberation. He never calls anyone, nor does He ask anyone to leave! He never asks for anything from anyone. He only gives. We may just carry on being self-centered, submerged in our own selfish thoughts of “me and mine.” Then what is the relevance of Mohanji in our lives? What has Mohanji got to do with our likes, dislikes and opinions about Him? We have asked for and created Mohanji in our lives! However, when we see Mohanji as separate from ourselves, we do not understand Him.

Mohanji represents the highest possibility of our own self. This means being natural and established in happiness, compassion, kindness, unconditional love, supreme causeless joy, care, unconditional acceptance etc.

If we look at Him as an individual incarnation, then all that we will see are the same human weaknesses that we all have such as anger, hatred, jealouosy, lust greed etc. He surely is not our lower and the terrestrial aspect of existence!

Mohanji_with_cub_350

 

Behind the very ordinary physical form of Mohanji, is the most extraordinary being, an AVATAR, which we need to recognise and merge with, over and above our weaknesses and selfish desires. He is here to liberate us and we must not lose this golden opportunity!

With the stories published in ‘Mohanji Satcharita’, we try to bring to light the invisible force, the eternal supreme consciousness behind every existence that comes as an experience.

In this chapter of ‘Mohanji Satcharita’, we are sharing nine stories in the three categories as below:

 

  • Divine Vision
  • Divine Transformation
  • Divine Healing

Divine Vision

DV_1_350_200

Many elevated souls have had divine communions with Mohanji through visions and experiences. These experiences reveal only the tip of the iceberg that is Mohanji as His depth stays unseen and hidden deep within the layers of the universe! In this chapter, we are bringing the  story from three devotees who have tried to share their unbelievable experiences  that are beyond reasoning and imagination of the mind! He is the sun, the moon and every particle that makes up this universe. This is how we can envisage Him while reading these experiences.

1.    ‘Pure Brightness’: Ramadasa Gowda, Karnataka, India, October 2018

Words fail in describing this enigma that is Mohanji! This is exactly the feeling of Ramdasa Gowda, who has not met Mohanji physically but experienced Him in His expanded state! He has made an attempt to narrate his vision through a letter to the Sathguru! This experience throws open doors of dimensions that are unfathomable and draws us into unknown realms of existence. The most beautiful learning through this sharing is to look beyond the laughing, talking, unassuming form that walks this earth as Mohanji. A seeker has to look past these delusions and become HIM!

Ramadasa Gowda narrates:

“Sathguru Mohanananda Chaithanya Maha Prabho.”

I had the greatest of all visions and I am grateful to Him for that. I have never met Him physically. I had a vision of Him, which still vibrates within me as I write. The name that I have mentioned above came to me along with that vision. I am unable to explain what I saw about Him in human words.

I saw Him as pure brightness – an unexplainable brightness without a body. I saw Him entering and exiting though numerous incarnations as a bright light, leaving them purified and elevated. I saw Him entering through the lower chakras of people and going out of them as a pure stream of sharp bright light through their Sahasrara Padma (crown chkara), thus opening all their channels. I saw Him literally without a body, as pure bright light.

mataji_Paint_2_350_200

I saw Him coming out of the sun and merging back into it. He was moving at great speed, as a ball of light in the solar system. I saw Him entering and exiting trees, plants and many beings of this planet and many other planets simultaneously. I saw much more but I don’t know how to explain it all. He is beyond any explanations.

I believe that He is deliberately creating illusions by maintaining a form to ward off ineligible people from Himself. It’s true that many human beings cannot reach Him while non-human beings easily reach Him. I dare not ask who He is! I understand there is no name for pure brightness – something that has no birth or death. Those who can recognise Him are truly lucky. Finally, through all these, I understand that You are my innermost core self or my real self. “Am I right, Prabho (My Lord)?” is my innocent and sincere question that comes out of my heart. I hope my understanding is correct, that I should look nowhere anymore, not even at His available current form, which He uses to delude people. I do not dare to ask why He maintains this painful play, coated with pains of separation by the mind. I do not dare to look at Him. All I can pray to Him is to bless me so that I can “see” only His truth always.

“Guide me Prabho! Bless this one, Prabho! Make me Yourself!”

This is the cry that comes out from the heart of His humble servant.

–Ramadasa Gowda

2.    ‘Beyond the mind’: A devotee from India, September 2017

Mohanji’s communion with a world that is beyond our perception has been glimpsed at times by some devotees through amazing events that changes the idea of our very existence, pulling us out of what we assume to be ‘real.’ A doctor, who is also a devotee of our Parabrahma sensed the formless and fathomless depth of Mohanji, through an unbelievable vision! These may appear as mere coincidences and at times unexplainable unless viewed with an inner vision. Such divine miracles simply leave us in awe. Our Guru cannot be contained in this simple, physical frame of Mohanji that we are used to. Read on and enjoy this stunning narration by a devotee who narrated his experience to Madhusudhan, but has chosen to keep his identity anonymous. We respect his anonymity.

Madhusudhan narrates the story from the devotee:

This person is a close followerDV2_350_200 of Mohanji, a doctor who treats people using traditional methods such as Ayurveda. Mohanji and the doctor have known each other for many years. They share a deep spiritual bond too. Some time back, Mohanji visited the doctor’s clinic for some wellness therapy. During this time, the doctor used to visit Mohanji daily as part of his routine check-ups.

One morning, he came to Mohanji’s room as part of his routine. They exchanged pleasantries, but before he could enter the room, he was called aside to look at some urgent scan reports of another patient. The doctor was occupied with this for a brief while and when he went back into the room, he found Mohanji missing!

In his words, “I wondered about his whereabouts. I knew Mohanji couldn’t have gone out of the door as I was standing there, near the room. This was puzzling. So I connected through my inner vision realised, Mohanji was in my Guru’s Samadhi temple, nearby. Then I turned and saw Mohanji walking back to the room. He had a shawl draped over his shoulder. This was surprising as earlier he was wearing only a T-shirt. So how could this have changed?

I realised what had happened. Mohanji is omnipresent and he was in a communication with my Guru at the Samadhi. It just proves that this great soul who walks this Earth as Mohanji is not bound to his physical form. My head bowed to Mohanji, who despite of His extraordinary existence, behaves absolutely ordinary. With this realisation, even though I was totally speechless, Mohanji made sure that I came to normal state soon. He kept me engaged with the normal discussion regarding the wellness therapy. After my conversation with Him, I proceeded for other check ups carrying a smile on my face.”

This narration from the doctor, yet again shows through this divine vision of Mohanji, that He is beyond the body, the mind and the intellect! This body of His is only for interactions with the world! This physical form does not bind him. He lives in freedom. He is FREE.

Jai Mohanji.

Madhusudhan

3.  ‘The unseen aspects’: Jay Jayaseelan, London, September 2017

Being in the physical presence of Mohanji or in His energy field enabled Jay to connect with Mohanji and have a peek at the other divine side of Mohanji! Jay’s experience throws light on an aspect of Mohanji in communion with various divine beings that surround us but not visible to the gross self. Faith and belief are the only links that helps us understand or experience these divine visions! What is required of us is to just stay rooted in the energy field of Mohanji!

Jay Narrates:

Jay_with_Mohanji_350

During a recent trip by Mohanji to Skanda Vale, Wales, I had the opportunity to be with Him, driving Him there and looking after His well-being. While Mohanji was completely dedicated towards His mission to support the Skanda Vale community, staying busy for more than 12 hours every day, we (there were three of us with Him), were  trying to ensure that He had everything that He needed within reach. Being with Mohanji was like being in a powerhouse – especially during the union of divine pure souls of Skanda Vale community members.  All three of us (the assistants for this occasion), were highly charged and trying to keep up with the pace that unfolded during this period. Each moment was a big learning as I was going through a cycle of deep cleansing. Trying to keep pace with Mohanji’s efficiency and speed was no joke and not naturally possible for any of us, but for His grace. The three days in His presence passed like three moments, but with lots of experiences.

On the last night, all of us were up till very late with Mohanji. He was in a very relaxed mood and kept us rolling on the floor with laughter with His jokes. He was just trying to keep us joyful, as we were sad that this heavenly stay with Him would end soon. We chitchatted till 1:00 am!

I went to sleep, a little later that night. In my sleep, I felt as if I was in the middle of a big crowd. I felt as though there were lots of heads in and around Mohanji’s room. The whole area was very bright too. Although I could not see any faces, I could feel the presence of people/beings.

The next morning, I narrated this incident to Mohanji and He smiled.

He said, “Beings come to meet me every night. They were here last night too. You could peep in through the curtains and were able to see. This is what you saw last night.”

This was an amazing experience, after an energetic four days with Mohanji. Being in His energy field, I was able to witness such a wonderful and divine meeting!

I feel super blessed and filled with lots of energy! Heartfelt gratitude to Mohanji for having given me this opportunity!

“It is the union of consciousness that makes one “see” the unity in beings. The blindness factor that prevents this is called the MIND. – Mohanji”

 Divine Transformation

DT_1_350

Such transformations can be experienced in a myriad different ways, as is shown in the accounts of Moushumi and Sreenivas. These happen because of one’s connection with the Guru. Mohanji explains the non-duality in bhakthi (devotion), where our limited consciousness melts into the Supreme Consciousness, through His blog, ‘Krishna – The Eternal Romantic’ .

 

 

4. ‘Expression of Love’: Moushumi, UK, June 2018

 

love_650_400

Small changes we make in our everyday lives can add up to make our existence more meaningful and joyful. Read on to see how Mohanji’s teachings on being spontaneous and in the moment led Moushumi to become more friendly, gracious and empathetic.

Moushumi Narrates:

DT_moushumi_quote_350

It would be apt to begin my experience sharing with Mohanji’s quote which inspired me to write today.

 

 

I can say definitely that my life has changed significantly after I met Him. I remember Mohanji’s words when He was talking about smiling at strangers.

DT_Moushumi_350_200And it happens so naturally these days, after meeting Mohanji. I expereince it each day while going about my routine life. Such as during drop off and pick up at school and even grocery shopping! I have been happy all the time and strangely, now, it’s not just me but others, who are just strangers, they smile back too.

One such incident happened last Christmas.  I met a lady in the supermarket and wanted something but couldn’t find it. I asked her for help and she obliged happily, with a wonderful smile. My daughter thanked her and the lady asked us to hug her. It was all very spontaneous. After the hug, she became emotional; tears started to roll down. She thanked me for hugging and explained that it was a very warm hug that lasted for a few seconds. I knew immediately the cause behind the episode – Mohanji, my Guru ‘within’ made a seemingly commonplace incident, significant!

I recount another magical incident. I wear a Rudraksha mala which was blessed by Mohanji last year. Recently I experienced something beautiful when I hugged my friend. My friend explained that as I hugged her, she could smell a beautiful aroma/scent. When the mala touched her body, there was a feeling of overwhelming love, my eyes appeared transparent and very different and very importantly, she felt  a strong magnetic force!  I knew for certain that it was Mohanji’s grace at work. I felt His presence often that day. Koti koti pranam to my Guru.

There is not a single desire now that needs to be fulfilled.

–Moushumi

5. ‘A stride towards freedom’: G Srinivas, Chennai, India– September 2018

“Doership causes karma, ownership causes binding. When both are consciously forsaken, only freedom remains within.”  These words of Mohanji describe the journey to freedom of Srinivas. Read on as he explains his trials and tribulations, before finally resting against the pillar of faith!

Srinivas narrates:

Srinivas_with_Mohanji_350My name is G. Srinivas.  I am from Chennai and aged 53 years. It was through Facebook that I came in touch with Mohanji. He was in the friends list of a sadhu, a Shirdi Sai Baba follower. Something stirred my heart when I read His words. I sent a friend request and it was accepted. To be frank I was at crossroads of my so-called spiritual life. My Guru of over 30 years had left His body and I had not been able to reconnect with Him within myself. And Mohanji was the farthest from being my prospective Guru, at least as per outer signs. Here was a person who has an extraordinary attraction but defied description and definition. He wore white, had a beard but was not a sadhu. He had a wife and a child and also earned His living. He chanted mantras, gave initiation but also derided mechanical worship. He seemed so down to earth and also expounded profound thoughts. I read His write ups often, enchanted, but stopped half way not being able to comprehend the full import of His words.  His words stirred emotions within, but He seemed emotionless.

Somewhere in late 2015 He was about to visit Tiruvannamalai and I messaged Him that I wanted to meet Him. But I did not get a response. Later, there was a message on FB stating that we should stay at home and be safe due to the rains in Chennai. I registered for the initiation programme in Chennai, held on 8th March 2016. Here also, Mohanji continued to break stereotypes. The day started with light yogasananas and the rest of the time was taken up on question and answer sessions. Here was a Guru totally at ease and down to earth, chatting happily. I had doubts about taking initiation since I was already initiated by my previous Guru and my doubt was answered by Mohanji without as much as my voicing it! But for the usual prostrations by some and devotional singing of bhajans by a lone tearful lady, there were no outward signs of devotion or reverence. I waited patiently for a meditation session but it never came. It was a relief that at least there was an initiation session, with Mohanji pressing the spot between the eyebrows.

DT_3_350_200As I read Mohanji’s words, I subconsciously started watching my thoughts. I have had a love hate relationship with my mind. All along I had been chasing my ‘monkey’ mind with the stick of good conduct, morals and do and don’t. The result was that the monkey was more often playing truant and would bite me back.

I viewed the world coloured by the prism of emotions and was often miserable, momentarily happy or sad. My joyful moments were filled with dreaDT_4_350_200d of losing the joy, good conduct jarred with the fear and guilt of bad conduct and hours spent on ‘worldly’ conduct ended with the guilt about not thinking about God. God seemed unattainable with a ‘monkey’ mind. More often there was a continued restlessness. The dread of not ‘attaining’ God with each passing day made my life miserable. As I was emotionally attached to people and places my mind never found rest.

On deeper introspection stirred by Guruji ‘s words I started observing myself within. By His grace I could ‘unhinge’ from the clutches of repetitive negative thoughts and feelings, by focusing on the ‘now’ moment. Thereby I could escape from the shadow of past thoughts and impressions.

Mohanji on how to control a series of unwanted thoughts

Once, when I was going through a particularly tough phase, I chanted ‘Mohanji Gayatri’ and prayed for His grace. By this chanting and focusing on the eye card, I gained clarity in thinking. Free from the burden of expectations and judgements about myself, my actions and thoughts and the outer world, my mind achieved a lot of peace and equanimity. Whenever I had doubts they were answered instantly by Mohanji. I used to wonder why I did not meditate or have the inclination to meditate. I now understand that my Guru was working on clearing the cobwebs of the mind in the form of preconceived notions, judgements etc. about God, Guru and the world.

Mohanji on Being in Now, Silence and Existence

I find that after coming in contact with Mohanji and His grace, the burden of the world rests lightly on me. I have attained a sense of tranquility and peacefulness. I try to keep my emotions in check, be it elation or disappointment. And when I do slip, I take recourse to remembering Mohanji and His calm visage which comforts my mind immensely. A sense of inevitability rather than resignation has taken over me.

I understand that come what may in each and every aspect of my life, I have to put my best foot forward and time will take its course for good or better. Being in the ‘now’ I cherish, savour and contribute my best to each moment. That for me, coupled with His thoughts is the greatest blessing I can have.

After attending Mohanji’s satsangs and hearing His words, I feel I should give myself more to the world in the form of selfless actions. I am sure with His grace it will be done in due course.

DT_5_350_200I often had a dream which I could never decipher but enjoyed immensely. I saw myself striding on a long road all alone. The sights and sounds of the world flitted across my vision. But though I was seemingly running fast my feet seemed to glide on as if flying and I never ran out of breath. I always woke up with a strange sense of exhilaration and joy.

Now I understand it is Mohanji’s grace, which has enabled me to stride across this world with joy, free of all worries. If only I can envision His deep, penetrating eyes each moment, I will consider it His blessing.

Jai Mohanji.

 — G Srinivas

Divine Healing

“Surrender is a subtle matter. When total surrender happens, suffering is removed. Absolute surrender removes duality, too. Yet, what will be given is what is right for you and not what your mind wants. What is right for you is that which ultimately sets your soul free.” – Mohanji

6. ‘Healing of throat pain’: Bojana Fabel, Macedonia, March 2017

When we surrender to the Guru and feel true love for Him in our hearts, He will take care of our every need. Mohanji says, “If you have firm faith and conviction in your path, tradition or Guru, that itself will lead you, guide you. All you need is firm faith and conviction.” Bojana narrates what happened when she fell ill at a crucial time in her career, and how her prayers were answered.

Bojana narrates:

Bojana_with_mohanji_350_200I would like you to read this post, as I want to share my most recent experience with Mohanji. I am a singer and I had a very important concert performance in Singapore on the 15th of March. The night before the concert, I felt a slight throat irritation. The next day on the day of the concert, I was diagnosed with tonsillitis. I took all the medicines prescribed, yet I felt extremely exhausted and went to bed with the need to sleep and to rest my tired and feverish body.

Before falling asleep, I wrote to the Mohanji team for some support and protection from Mohanji and they told me that He would take care of me.  20 minutes later, I felt a huge wave of very warm energy that was actually around me but not inside of me (as I was having fever inside my body).

I fell asleep. When I woke up an hour later, my energy level was much higher. I had no pain at all in my throat. Miraculously the pain had vanished.

Bojana_singing_350

 

During my performance, I sang effortlessly and all I could witness was ecstatic faces of joy and laughter, and not a single moody or unhappy person. Everyone was dancing and smiling.

As Mohanji frequently says:  “I do my job”, So He did! He took over my problems ….

 

With love and enormous appreciation,

Yours truly, Bojana

 

 

7. ‘Healing of foot pain’: Rashila Pankania, UK, December 2017

Mohanji’s presence in our lives gives us so much peace, solace and joy. When we pray with faith and surrender, He responds. There are times in all our lives when the mind questions and asks for some kind of tangible evidence to feel our connection to Him. Rashila shares with us how her yearning for a miracle became a beautiful reality. “When devotion overflows, the devotee melts. God reciprocates and melts too.” – Mohanji.

Rashila narrates:

Rashila_with_Mohanji_350_200Yesterday, as I was moving a bookshelf, the shelf came off and hit my foot. This was an old-fashioned bookshelf made from real wood and was extremely heavy. I was in so much pain that I couldn’t move my foot, but I knew I hadn’t broken it as I was able to hobble on it. By that evening, after a hot bath, the pain had worsened. I was in so much agony that I wondered if I would be able to attend the Christmas fun night which coming up in two days! This was an ACT UK organised fund raising event and I had been looking forward to taking part in it very much.

I did my Kriya the next morning, but couldn’t sit cross legged for long. I had to keep moving my leg as any pressure on the foot was so painful. I finished my Kriya and offered aarati as usual to all the deities in my altar. I offered aarati to Mohanji’s photo, which was also in my altar. As soon as I moved away after giving Him the aarati, I realised that I had no pain in my foot! He had gracefully healed me! From having a painful foot, I was now with no pain at all. I didn’t even pray to Mohanji to heal me! He knew and did His job!

DH_1_350_200Not only had He healed me and removed my pain, He had also removed the obstacle, which would have prevented me from attending the event that I had been looking forward to. Most importantly, He gave me the evidence my mind was seeking. My mind was asking for a miracle from Him, to show me that I am really connected to Him! With this incident, He showed me that I am connected to Him, and in such a beautiful way! However much our mind doubts or wonders, Guru is always there, the connection intact, just like the electricity connection in our house. We just need to ‘on’ the switch and realise it! 

Thank you Mohanji for the reaffirmation and for being with me always.

Koti pranams to you Gurudev.

8. Healing of birds, September 2017

Mohanji says, “When we witness the same permanent object in all beings such as human beings, trees, plants, animals, and birds, beings of the air, sea and land that exist all around us, we become truly universal. We become liberated.” Mohanji lives by example; His unconditional love to all beings of the earth is always evident.

Milica from South Africa shares with us how Mohanji’s physical proximity had healed a little bird, and Subhasree from London shares with us how her prayers to Mohanji had healed an injured bird – both happened on the same day, thousands miles apart, witnessed by different people, the healing source being ONE and the SAME – Mohanji.

Milica, South Africa:

On Monday during a visit from Mohanji’s from Mauritius to South Africa, we were having small satsang. Suddenly a small bird flew into a glass door which was next to where Mohanji was seated. The bird was hurt and fell down. It was gently picked up and placed on Mohanji’s lap. It stayed there for a while, looking very calm and resting peacefully. Initially we thought it had a broken wing and tail. After about half an hour of being on Mohanji’s lap, it recovered well and was ready to fly.

We felt that this soul was very determined to meet Mohanji and was blessed to have had such love from Him!

 

Jai Mohanji!

 Subhasree, London :

hurt_bird_350On Monday late in the afternoon, I was waiting on a platform for my train. Suddenly, an injured bird came flying slowly, landed near me and started limping. There was no one else around me and I didn’t know what I could do to help. Therefore, I just started praying to Mohanji, chanting His Gayatri. As I was chanting Mohanji Gayatri, I noticed that the bird seemed to calm down and just sat in one place. I continued to chant. After a few minutes, it seemed to recover well, and flew off with no evidence of any unsteadiness. Such is the power of Mohanji. Just by chanting His name, the bird was healed!

 Jai Mohanji!

9. ‘Mohanji, the anchor!’: G Srinivas, Chennai, India, June 2018

We face many challenges in life, but with the guidance and protection from the Guru, we pass the storms of life with relative ease. Mohanji says, “Surrender is a subtle matter. When total surrender happens, suffering is removed. Duality is removed too.” A beautiful sharing by Srinivas shows us how deep faith and surrender to Mohanji protected his family.

Srinivas narrates:

Srinivas_2_350I have been regularly chanting the ‘Mohanji Gayatri’ and praying with Mohanji’s eye card. This gives me great peace, equanimity and emotional composure. One day, in mid-June this year, I had some personal work to finish and had a strong instinct to apply for 3 days leave. This was sanctioned by my bosses. On the same day, I received a call in the evening from my son, informing me that he was sick and was being admitted for medical care. The next day, along with my wife, I rushed to Bangalore to find out that he had been admitted to the ICU with a chest infection. I could feel the grace of Mohanji all along. I just kept praying and being in the present, and everything worked out fine thereon. Everything happened smoothly.

I was guided subtly to make arrangements for obtaining reimbursement for expenses by making inquiries. There was an apprehension that the medical bill would be quite high as per the inquiries made, but the final bill came out to be very reasonable and by the grace of Mohanji, my son made a quick recovery.

A month later, on the 18th & 19th of July 2018, a  chance inquiry by my wife, prompted by apprehension and made in haste with an astrologer, followed by his negative words regarding my son’s health caused us much emotional turmoil. My wife was distraught and exhibited highly temperamental behaviour, which was quite natural for a mother. I took it upon myself to maintain a calm composure and also to take care of her.

DH_eye_350The dark energies seemed to have encircled us that night.   However, I clung to my faith in Mohanji and His eye card, which I kept under my pillow that night, so that I could pass the storm of anxiety and restlessness with emotional composure.

I realised that without the grace of Mohanji, I could have panicked and it could have had a detrimental effect on my health, as I suffer from hypertension. The storm passed with Mohanji as my anchor. After the night of mental trauma, the next day, I sought help from Mohanji by messaging Him.

My message read, “Guruji, our family is seized by a great fear of misfortune due to a prediction regarding my son’s health. Please save us. This comes at a time when we have planned to build a temple with Shirdi Sai’s grace. Please help us. Jai Mohanji.”

Mohanji’s reassuring words, “Faith can move mountains. Have unshakable faith. Miracles will happen. I am with you. Bless you.” acted as a balm to my anguished heart.

I am sure with His grace and guidance anything can be accomplished. My fervent wish remains that I am able to surrender everything at His feet and forever remember His calm and serene eyes, so that this alternating dream of sweet and stormy life passes by.

Jai Mohanji!
–G.Srinivas

With deep gratitude and love, we offer this second chapter of ‘Mohanji Satcharita’ at the lotus feet of Brahmarishi Mohanji! It was only through His grace that this Satcharita saw the light of day. Pure intention and faith was all that we had, as we commenced this chapter. As instruments, we bow to our Guru with this verse from the Guru Gita:

“Gurubhāvaḥ paraṁ tīrthamanyatīrthaṁ nirarthakam
Sarvatīrthāśrayaṁ devi pādāṅguṣṭhaṁ ca vartate”

Which means:

“Absorption in the Guru is the most sacred place; every other place of pilgrimage is meaningless. O Goddess, the big toe of the Guru’s (right) foot is the abode of all places of pilgrimage.”

Jai Shree Guru Datta.

Jai Mohanji.

Stone to Crystal

By Subhasree, UK

M walking1.jpg

In 4 days Mohanji is coming! Well, I can’t miss the counting, even if I do, my 9 year old son Sambhav keeps reminding me every day – “7 days more & Mohanji coming”, “6 days more and Mohanji coming”…so on and so forth. Pure innocent children resonate more with Mohanji, the innocence incarnate! Sambhav’s excitement is pure, no expectation, no ritual, no formality, no stress! Not only he is excited and counting days of Mohanji’s coming, he also keeps me on my track and checks, “what are you going to give Mohanji for dinner?” Therefore, I had better keep everything planned! Mohanji’s bodyguards can be found in any form! May be this time, in form of Sambhav! Hahahaha…

Amidst all preparations – cleaning, shopping, packing, scheduling, planning, (the list is not a short one!), the excitement pervades. Time is flying. Especially the last week has gone so fast, as if there are only 4 hours in a day, not 24 hours! This is a proper festive season – just like Dussera, Diwali or Christmas. However, none of the chores brings any fatigue. There is only Joy and joy everywhere. Mohanji is already with us through these preparations. We are living Mohanji every moment!

Well, as much as I would like to just constrain myself in this joyful festive environment, I still have to keep on continuing my Dharma, my duty. Compassion Incarnate, Mohanji made sure that my Dharma (duty) also becomes joyful. Two days in a row, I was drenched with BLISS through experiences that showed me the power of Surrender and Devotion and reiterated Mohanji as the Sole existence.

I would like share these two experience here.

Experience during Mai Tri Healing

Mr Patel (Name changed to respect his anonymity) wanted to have Mai Tri healing done on his ailing old mother (I would address here as “Aunty”). Despite the back-to-back tasks, I could not say no, as that was my dharma to be available when someone needs. They came in and we had some chats about Mohanji’s visit, the programmes, aunty’s health, hospital trips etc. Aunty had lost her husband recently and still in that shock which has affected her health. Whenever she comes home for healing, she looks at Mohanji’s photo and talks to Him. Like a child, smile doesn’t leave her lips, her face brightens up and she feels very happy and relaxed. It was the same this time too, though she looked much more frail and disturbed and quiet when she came in. After the chat, we started Mai Tri Healing. Mohanji was already with us through the chat that we had started.

During the process, while I was at her Heart Chakra, I suddenly saw and felt her husband, sitting for healing (instead of aunty) and I am doing Healing to him. Exactly how he looked before, in his white shirt, smile on his radiant face. I felt the softness of his chest as if I am doing healing on his heart chakra! Then in few seconds, I heard Mr Patel asking Mohanji (who I see sitting next to Mr Patel in the sofa), “Mohanji please tell where is Dad now? Is he waiting for mom or has he taken a birth, how is he?” Mohanji replied, “It doesn’t matter where he is. He is always with your mother.”

After hearing this, I moved on to other chakras and eventually healing process completed. When I opened my eyes, the vision, the words were still vivid. No ambiguity, no blurriness.

From all my Mai Tri Healing experiences so far, I know one thing for sure. When I surrender completely and offer myself as, and only as, the instrument of Mohanji’s energy to flow in, Mohanji’s presence then becomes inevitable. His divine energy and through His, the entire Guru Mandala’s energy flows in. During healing what I see or hear is all that He sees & hears or whatever He wants me & the receiver to see and hear! Nothing is ever imagination or illusion.

This incident again proved this.

After I finished the process, I narrated this vision to Mr Patel. His mouth was wide open. He said to me, “While you were doing healing, sitting here on the sofa, I was directly looking at Mohanji’s photo and asked him, Mohanji, is dad still waiting for Mom? Will Mom go to him and be with him again?”

It was crystal clear that while Mr Patel was having his conversation with Mohanji, I was hearing that during the healing. Mohanji not only answered to him verbally, but also by showing me the vision of Uncle sitting for Healing, He showed that Uncle is still present with Aunty during the Heart chakra healing.

To see and understand this ultimate truth of Divine Existence of Mohanji is as easy when you get that visibility. It would be wonderful when everyone (hopefully one day!) will be able to see this truth.

We have to develop EYES while we can and while the master is available.

Like a little baby open his eyes slowly after taking birth, my eyes are opening slowly too. I also understand that from an ordinary stone lying somewhere in the ground, with Mohanji’s shine, I am converting into Crystal that can reflect the shine!

Shree Ram in Treta Yug had converted a rock into Rishi Devi Ahalya (who was lying there as a rock for many yugas), just by touching his feet on the rock. In this Kali Yuga, Mohanji is turning many more stones like me to light reflecting crystals! How amazing divine Leela!

Experience during reading a Blog

Another of my dharma was a schedule discussion event happening soon for which I was going trough some of Mohanji’s blogs. Despite the lined of activities for the whole day, I was determined to read few blogs today. I picked up the Babaji series – 1, 2 & 3.

Throughout the day, I was reading the series one after another. Of course, in between, I had to get up to do chores. However, the consciousness stayed with the blogs. What I read, was playing on inside. We had a family get together in the evening, for which I sent my husband and kids earlier and planned to be with them around 9 pm, just before dinner. After they all left home and all chores finished, I sat down to read the third blog in the series. By the time I finished reading, I felt very different. It was not normal fatigue or anything. I just couldn’t even get up from the sofa. My head felt heavy and I felt feverish. I didn’t understand what was it. I just slowly lie down on the sofa itself, in front of Mohanji’s picture. This is our Healing sofa – meaning when people come for Mai Tri Healing, they lie down on the sofa. For the first time, I was lying down on this Healing sofa!

As soon as lied down, I was unconscious. I had no sense of time, or fact that I had to go somewhere! Suddenly I came to sense and saw the time was about 9 pm! Even though I came to senses and eyes are opened, I still had the feeling of BLISS intact. I didn’t want move or go anywhere and talk! So I just sent a message to my husband that I am not feeling well and won’t be able to join them, I straight went to bed and slept.

When I woke up the next morning, I realised what I went through last evening was probably a cleansing process that I went through with reading the blog. It was the power of Mohanji’s energy that permeated through His blog to me and the cleansing happened.

WOW! Just by reading the blogs, this happened.

While I was cleaning my home in preparation for Mohanji’s visit, He was cleansing me through His presence during Mai Tri Healing and through the Blogs reading.

I realised that ,

no blog is by accident. Everything is positively transformational. Everything has a positive purpose. Everything is real.

Let me tell you, after these cleansing effects and the experiences, I suddenly had so much of inner energy to continue with my triple, quadruple amount of chores that I am racing to finish before Mohanji arrives.

The waiting and preparation for Mohanji’s arrival has become such a joy! Mohanji is with me, while not physically being with me.

When he says, “I am with you. I am in you”, He really means!

I have realised the beautiful fact now that fill me with immense joy and Bliss. Eternal Bliss.

My gratitude for my Gurudev for giving me this Bliss and everything even beyond my expectation. Giving me a taste of what it means “Being Merged” with you, Para Brahma!

For ever at your feet. Koti Pranam and endless Love, My Guruji.

With Mohanji Skandavale
