Compassion Unlimited!

By Subhasree Thottungal, UK

Being with Mohanji, one thing I have realised over time is that we never need to ask anything, we never need to tell him anything. He feels our thoughts, responds appropriately, and he even fulfils our desires too.

In this write-up, I am going to express a few such experiences which made me wonder how compassionately Mohanji fulfilled my wishes and above all how he removed my pain and probably took it on himself! It may sound difficult to believe unless you really see with your own eyes. In today’s logical world, does this really happen? I would probably have not believed if this didn’t happen to me directly. One thing for sure, with Mohanji, nothing ever is a co-incidence!

So here it goes.

Sometime back in 2018, I think Mohanji had travelled to Mookambika (Kollur in Karnataka) and there were photos of him in FB. When I had seen those photos, I had a thought at that time that may be one day I should go to Mookambika with Mohanji. That desire remained there.

In 2019, around Sep/Oct, a Kriya Intensive retreat was announced in Mookamika for December 2019. I was thrilled to hear this and thought that I would go for that. But soon, I realised the dates were such that I wouldn’t be able to make it because I was going to the Philippines for an Acharya Program for about a week and I would just be returning around this time. The visit to the Philippines was on Mohanji’s advise, and so that couldn’t be compromised. I had accepted the fact that I won’t be able to attend the Kriya intensive and will miss going to Mookambika with Mohanji.

Anyway, the days went by. My Philippines trip was completed. After that, a few days of holidays with my in-laws and parents were over too, and it was time to return to London at the beginning of Jan 2020. I knew Mohanji was in Bangalore and since my return flight to London was from Bangalore, I thought of checking with Mohanji if I could meet him. I messaged him, and he said I could come and meet him, but he is not in Bangalore. He was in isolation and at Mookambika. But he welcomed me to come and meet him there and asked me to check with Preeti didi regarding the travel details. I was speechless! Mohanji had called me to visit him in Mookambika!

I instantly understood and realised that Mohanji was fulfilling my desire of visiting Mookmbika with him, which I missed earlier because I had to go to the Philippines! My heart truly expanded with gratitude. Anyway, I travelled as Preeti didi kindly made all the necessary arrangements. Those days, I had immense pain in my feet, my Rheumatoid Arthritis pain in my feet had flared up just before the visit to the Philippines. During this whole trip, the pain was intense, and I was limping.

Anyway, I reached Mookmabika. Rajesh Kamath and another devotee who was accompanying Mohanji received me. When I met Mohanji, he noticed me limping and asked me about it. I just brushed it aside. I was too happy just seeing Mohanji.

Mohanji said, early next morning, before 5 am, we will be going to the temple and to stand in the queue to have the “Nirmalya Darshan” – the first view of Mother Goddess. Every moment with Mohanji is so special. We were ready by 4:30 am and walked barefooted to the temple and stood outside, waiting for the door to open. Mohanji was behaving just like any other ordinary visitor, waiting at the side, very humbly. A Master of his stature to wait outside the temple patiently was giving us the teaching of pure humility, no ego, no demand of comfort!

While I was standing by his side, he suddenly called me and taught me a breathing exercise. While receiving this diksha from my Guru standing in front of Mother’s temple, I even had no sense to feel good about it… mind, ego and pride had evaporated at that time, and it was only bliss. The bliss of receiving Guru’s grace!

Soon the temple door opened and we went inside. I was behind Mohanji. When we all stood at the front in the queue, Mohanji asked me to come in front of him and stand. I felt a little awkward to stand in front of Mohanji. But he made sure that I stood right in front to see Mother and the rituals clearly without any obstruction! I had a special prayer to make. (I will write about it on a later date) When the ritual was going on, I made this prayer, being fully aware that my Guru is standing behind me with his grace engulfing me totally. Suddenly as I opened my eyes, I saw a flower from Mother’s head had dropped. We believe that the flower dropping from the head of the idol is a symbol that God has accepted our prayer!

I immediately turned around, trying to look at Mohanji, and he had a smile on his face! While the ritual of this early morning was happening, Mohanji was narrating to me all the details of the ritual. Just like a father or mother would explain to their child for the first time. He ensured that I had a clear view too. After the rituals, Mohanji went to the side of the temple, and there was a special veranda where people usually sit and do prayers. This is where Adi Shankaracharya’s temple is also present. Mohanji went and sat directly opposite, facing Adi Shankaracharya’s temple. Rajesh went and sat nearby.

I was walking slowly, limping and was about to sit a little far away from Mohanji, not wanting to disturb him, as he had his eyes closed. Mohanji opened his eyes and called me to sit next to him, gesturing with his hands to the space on his left side. As I sat next to him, it was as if I had entered into a high energy zone. I thought of doing Kriya there. Mohanji then reminded me to do the breathing exercise he had taught me while standing outside, to do it just before I do any sadhana. For me, it was already a big deal that Mohanji opened his eyes, called me to sit and was now giving direction to intensify my sadhana. He was not worried about his sadhana; he was guiding me instead! A true Guru he is, truly there every moment to guide us! I did as he guided and then did Kriya.

During Kriya that time, I had a feeling of floating; my bottom couldn’t feel the cool hard stone surface any more… I was truly levitating with the power of that energy sphere that I was inside, being right next to Mohanji. This Kriya experience was probably a once in a lifetime experience. (Well every meeting, every moment I am with Mohanji, I take it as once in a lifetime moment!) I am sure my words are nowhere near doing justice to what I had experienced that time. I was not even able to feel my breath, heartbeat or any vibration in the body…. just simply floating.

When I finished Kriya, I opened my eyes, Mohanji was sitting very calmly. I wanted to capture that moment, especially the view that I had in front of my eyes, seeing Adi Shankara at one end of the veranda and Mohanji at this end, both facing each other! I took out my phone quietly and clicked a few pics. (though we are not supposed to). Mohanji told me to be careful, as the previous day, the camera of a devotee was taken away.

I was sitting and just noticing other devotees in the temple. Everyone was touching their head at the outside wall of the main temple and was writing something with their fingers. I was just thinking about what they were doing, and Mohanji said at that time, people write their wishes there on the wall. I nodded my head. Then he told me to go there and write and ask Mother to remove the pain from my feet. I was probably a bit hesitant to get up and go, and moreover, I feel when I am with Mohanji, why do I need to pray for anything for myself, he knows what is needed.

Then Mohanji insisted again, “Go and ask Mother to remove your pain and make you fit. You have a lot of work to do.” These were not mere words; this was a command for me. I got up and limped to that place and did as Mohanji had instructed. And then came back and sat next to Mohanji again. We sat there for a couple of hours almost till the aarati happens. While we were sitting, an old lady came. In the last few days of Mohanji’s regular visits and sitting at the same place, they had got to know each other, and so she comes and talks to Mohanji in their language – Malayalam.

That day when she saw me, Mohanji first introduced me to her in their language as his ‘shishya’ which means ‘disciple’. For me to hear this word directly from Mohanji, in front of Adi Shankara, inside this pious temple, was a great thing. I can be his follower, I can be his devotee, but to be my Guru’s disciple is a lifetime honour itself! Then he requested the lady to help me go and see the aarati properly right in the front again.

Mohanji was not going there, but he ensured that we were taken care of and had a proper darshan. Before going out, we did the parikrama around the temple visiting all the other small temples of other deities, and Mohanji continued to talk to me about each one. He even instructed Rajesh to get two lamps for me and showed me where to light it, where to show it and where to place those lamps! Honestly, I was a 5-year-old girl at that time, and my father was showing me around everything with so much care and compassion. I was still floating!

I stayed one more day in Mookambika and those two days watching Mohanji being in a sadhana mode; I felt it was my punya from many lifetimes! I returned back to London with the determination that I would meet Mohanji again in a few weeks for the Global Summit and Mohanji’s birthday celebration in Sri Lanka.

At the end of January, it was the inauguration of the land in Arunachala – a home for seniors. I heard from some people who met Mohanji at that time that he had terrible pain in his feet and was limping. A few weeks later, during the 3rd week of February, we all travelled to Sri Lanka. When I reached the hotel, and after some time, I got the chance to meet Mohanji in his room. And what I saw made me go numb. His left foot was very swollen, and he was in pain.

It didn’t take me a moment to realise what had happened since January first week when I was limping in front of him with swelling and pain in my left foot, and now I was walking fine, but he had swelling and pain in his left foot. I am insignificant here. What is significant is his compassion. He had transferred my pain, making me fit! His words in Mookmbika temple were ringing in my ears, “Tell Mother to make you fit. You have a lot of work to do.”

After the Global Summit, on this birthday morning, we all went to Kataragama temple. While walking around the temple, Mohanji was limping. Even though he had pain, nothing was shown on his face; he was laughing and talking with everyone. Inside the temple, on the sandy ground, he was walking barefooted and was limping. At that point, I couldn’t stop my emotion anymore. My heart was crying out. When I got the chance, I expressed to him, “Mohanji, please give back my pain to me. I can’t see you like this.” He smiled and said, “How do you know it’s only yours? You can’t bear what I can. I may have some pain in the body, but I have no suffering.”

It was the responsibility of a mother who would bear all the pain for the child but will never make it visible to the child. Mohanji doesn’t need any credit for what he does for us. His only aim is to free us from our pain and suffering without making it a big deal in front of us. He does his job quietly. On one side, I was so grateful to him to have removed my pain and making me fit, but on another side, I was sad to see him in that pain.

One evening while we were in some discussion during the global meet, Barbara called me to say Mohanji had called me. That evening Mohanji was not feeling well. When I went to his room, he was resting. When I went near to him, he opened his palm and showed me a thread that he was holding. It was a part of his janeyu (the sacred thread that he wears around his neck and chest). He said while he was laying there his hand on his chest, half of the janeyu just came in his hand, he doesn’t know how. He still has the janeyu around his chest. He gave me that sacred thread in my hand and told me to keep it.

It was no less than a miracle, that while he was sleeping, a few layers of the sacred thread came in his hand just like that! I didn’t use my mind to analyse this or to understand this. For me, it was my Guru’s blessings, his protection, in the form of the sacred thread, protection that had materialised in his hand! Without any delay, he had called me and given it to me, which meant he knew I needed protection at that time. We have no clue what dangers he protects us and saves us from, some we see, some we don’t see and some we see but don’t realise. His subtle way of working is beyond the understanding of my limited thinking.

The only thing that I know very well by now is that his compassion, his love is beyond any limit, beyond any boundary. Truly for me, Mohanji is compassion incarnate, showering his grace and love unconditionally beyond any form or relation.  My heartfelt gratitude, my hug and love from this tiny heart goes to where my Guru lives. Not too far away, but right here, at the centre of my heart. I love you Mohanji. Koti Pranams.

Grace through Guru Raksha Homa

mohanji eyes closed

The power of the Guru Raksha Homa and Guru’s divine grace and presence is very evident in the true story shared below. Pranjal’s father, who is also Smrithi’s brother-in-law, was recently taken ill, and they both share their thoughts and experiences during this difficult time.

By Pranjal Mathur, Canada

I came to know about Mohanji through my Aunt around 1.5 years ago. My experiences started with Mohanji early this year when my wife and I were going through mental turmoil about our immigration status in the U.S. and Canada. My Aunt asked for help from Mohanji, and he approved Guru Raksha Homa (GRH) to be performed by Bhalerao ji. After the homa, my wife and I started feeling calm and handled the interviews very confidently, and as a result, immigration processes went very smoothly. 

In March, my wife and I decided to visit our parents in India, but suddenly the Covid-19 situation started becoming worse throughout the world, and major airlines started cancelling international flights. While I had a shorter visit planned, my wife had plans to stay for another week with her parents. She felt that she had divine guidance which convinced her to book tickets for an earlier date. PM Modi shut down the entire country which included international travel, the very next day of her departure. 

In October, my parents got infected by Covid-19, and my father had to be hospitalized for more than two weeks. Once again, we sought Mohanji’s help, he directed all of us to feed birds and wild animals, and he also approved the Guru Raksha Homa for my father’s recovery. The homa was performed by Bhalerao ji on Thursday, and my father tested negative on Sunday. 

While Bhalerao ji was performing the homa, he got a message that I should donate food items to a food bank on Sharad Poornima (the most significant full-moon day in the year according to the Hindu calendar). I bought some canned food and donated, but I still had the urge to contribute more and felt that I had not donated enough. Mohanji read my intentions, and when I went to another store to buy seeds for birds, during the billing, the cashier asked me if I wanted to donate to the Kids Hunger Program and my answer was an instant yes. It felt like Mohanji gave me another opportunity within minutes. 

In the same week, my mother had to offer water-filled coconut to the Gods for my father’s recovery, but getting coconuts is difficult in U.P. (Uttar Pradesh), especially during Covid-19 times. Once again, Mohanji read my mother’s mind, and out of nowhere, a person came to the house selling coconuts, just the kind she was looking for!

During the time in the hospital, when my father was meditating, he felt that two saints came to his bedside and started removing negative energies from his body. After a few days, my father began showing signs of recovery and finally tested negative for Covid-19.

We have not met Mohanji in person, but we feel he is always watching over us as a father and keeping us safe.

By Smrithi Mathur, Australia

Dear family, I want to share a beautiful incident which happened because of Mohanji’s grace and the Guru Raksha Homa. I have a cousin sister who lives in Shahjahanpur near Bareilly in the U.P. state of India. On 15th October, her husband, a doctor, tested positive for Covid-19. He had severe symptoms, bad cough and the lungs had patches with pneumonia. He had to be immediately shifted to Lucknow for hospitalization. Obviously, it was a very stressful situation. Both my sister and her husband are spiritually oriented and are Kriya initiates from YSS/SRF of Paramhansa Yogananda. Recently my sister was connecting to Mohanji through his teachings.

I wrote to Mohanji to seek his blessings and guidance in this crisis situation. What followed was only grace, grace and grace. Mohanji had asked to do certain offerings to Sai Baba in a local temple and if that was not possible, then in Mohanji Datta Tapovan Ashram in Canada. My sister decided to do both. Surprisingly, her son who lives in the U.S. was already considering contacting Mahesh Bhalerao for his help in this situation, and Mohanji telling the same was like joining two dots and also proving the omniscience of Mohanji. One of the items of offerings was coconut. Finding fresh coconuts in U.P. and that too during Covid times is a rarity. As she was organizing the things to offer, out of nowhere, a vegetable vendor came to her house with a bunch of fresh coconuts. His timing was a clear proof of Mohanji’s divine intervention.

In Canada, the offerings were made to Sai Baba and a Guru Raksha Homa was planned for 29th October. Meanwhile, in the hospital in Lucknow, my sister’s husband had beautiful experiences. Despite his bad health, he was able to meditate, do Kriya and read ‘God talks with Arjuna‘. One morning as he was sitting in meditation, he saw two saints come and sit on the left side of his bed facing him. They were young, with black hair and bright orange clothes. 

They both gave him something; one of them was like a yantra. As he opened his eyes, he did not see them, but when he closed his eyes again, he saw them sitting there. Now, a third saint came and sat on the right side of his bed. The saint asked for something from him, and he obliged. This went on for some time, and then the saints left. He then saw a clear blue sky in his vision and a deep, deep peace like never before descended on him. He went into complete bliss.

His medical reports kept fluctuating, and he kept testing positive. But because of Mohanji’s protection, his condition never worsened beyond a point. There was no need for ICU (except for a day or two), oxygen etc. On Thursday, 29th October, Mahesh Bhalerao conducted Guru Raksha Homa. The presence of Mohanji and various other deities was seen in the homa, as seen in the pictures. The following Sunday, 1st November, his Covid-19 report came back negative, and he was feeling just fine. He was discharged from the hospital the next day.

Of what could have been something very serious, Mohanji protected my family member through his sheer grace and mercy.

Healed by Nature

tree

By Liz Flood, UK

Trees: Guardians, sentinels, connections between Earth and Ether, orchestras of Torus. Beloved Devi Mohan has offered beautiful reminders about the capacity of trees to assist our healing and spiritual awakening. Through the grace of shared awareness and truth, I humbly describe this experience in the hope it finds resonance with others who may also be helped by these most enduring and stoic of beings and, in turn, encourage us to use our compassionate awareness to help other beings.

These months of lockdown have been, for me, such a privileged time; it has been difficult to believe possible.  Chance to rest, reflect, accept and heal in unspeakably profound silence with the suspension of all demands and duties. I barely spoke – nor wanted to – for weeks on end.  It has been a precious gift of re-connection and harmony with a healing Earth, during which love and gratitude often rose spontaneously like a fountain springing tears of blissful joy.  I had no embarrassment at all – no one was there to see, and I sometimes chose to believe that each hot drop carried a vibration of love and compassion to other beings who, at this same moment, might be suffering due to the pandemic.

Inevitably, the soft edges of this enchanted bubble became more permeable, and encroaching responsibilities and requirements crept slowly into focus. I tried to maintain some sense of balance and detachment as duties returned, recognising in myself the selfishness inherent in any resistance.

Yet as my boundaries continued to be challenged and broken, I could see that each abrasion and scratch represented my causal layer in action.  In fact, it grew clear how many bad habits and thought patterns were affecting my ‘normal’ life, impairing my ability to add value to the world and progress spiritually. I badly needed clearing out and cleaning up! So when the 41 days of Power of Purity (PoP) meditation programme was announced, I grabbed the chance.  It’s been truly lovely and more wonderful still to find myself waking up and looking forward to seeing a group of people grown fond and familiar by Zoom.

Just over halfway and today, I accepted that the past few days had been taken over by extreme negativity; I have been bleak and black. Ego suffuses me with a sense of being unworthy of all the incredible help and support I have been given, and I’m unlikeable. Everyone just wants to contradict me and tell me I’m wrong. About everything! I might as well stop bothering.  I really can’t concentrate at all during Kriya or PoP, so don’t deserve them. I am blinded by a dark cloud of shame and unhappiness.  Oh, Mohanji! How can I offer up such a cesspit, a concoction of tamasic ingratitude, a well of self-pity? You deserve better!

Action was needed. I went to the woodland I go to often and looked for a tree. Normally a tree I choose for this practice would be something like an old oak. Singular and large – a giant demanding of attention for its beauty and nobility. Today, however, there was too much risk of disturbance by people and dogs enjoying their freedom. After 20 minutes walking, I found a more modest Scots Pine, hidden away from any path, at the edge of a stand of them overlooking the hills and valley below. Following Devi’s instructions (and not for the first time!) I said hello to the tree, requested permission to sit and sat down with my spine straight at first, then reclined gently, so the upper part of my back touched the trunk. 

Closing my eyes, I started to breathe vertically, from root to crown, connecting downwards into the earth on the out-breath, upwards into sky breathing in.  Minutes passed. Gently gently, there was an increasing sense of vibrations harmonising – my aura body was bonding with the aura body of the tree. I kept breathing – it was quite a different experience than I was used to with the grand oaks, more subtle, lighter, almost playful. A hoverfly sang by my nose. A bird rustled the leaves at my feet. I forgot entirely that this body and mind were remotely important. I opened my eyes and realised something incredible was happening. All the other trees were also reaching their aura bodies towards me. These trees were actually a singular consciousness, unimpeded by individual minds or personalities!  This realisation shifted a deep opening within, and my tears once again flowed freely with the deepest love for these stunning and amazing beings.  In turn, this seemed to increase the connected consciousness between us and more and more loving vibrations. They were beings of limitless endurance, strength, unstinting loyalty and love. What they do for our planet is completely selfless yet of incomparable value. Wow. Really.

Eventually, with the most sincere gratitude to these and all trees, I stood to leave. Walking away, I was aware of how all the trees in the woodland now seemed aware of my passing.  This is something I had noticed on previous occasions. I think it might be that, for a short period of time, we become part-tree ourselves, or at least our aura body has assimilated some tree-spirit that the others recognise.

I bumped into someone I knew who could see that I was intoxicated by my experience, laughing and full of joy – healed!

So I came home to try and put this into words. And to encourage others, if this attracts you even a little, to please try and communicate with these beings.  After today, I feel so certain that it is not only we who can benefit, but the trees also seem to gain something by the connection and expressing compassionate attention and love.  Mohanji has clearly stated a need for us to connect with nature in this time of the Corona Virus and explained that we share singular consciousness; today the trees helped me a little way forward in realising what this means. Thank you. I am truly blessed. Samastha Loka Sukhino Bhavantu. Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi.

Grace at the time of need

mohanji smile

A beautiful narration of the power of Mai-Tri and one’s deepening connection to Mohanji. Pooja writes about her recent experiences with Mohanji and the profound effect of Mai-Tri received by her dad. Subhasree also shares her experience as the Mai-Tri practitioner who responded to Pooja’s message for help in the most unexpected way.

By Pooja Jobanputra, UK

I would like to share my recent experiences and ongoing beautiful journey with Mohanji.

At the outset of the corona pandemic, I began to listen more regularly and with an increasing passion to Mohanji’s podcasts, videos, and blogs. This period has allowed me to connect to Mohanji’s consciousness at a much deeper, profound level. I have begun to experience subtle changes in my way of thinking and have felt the presence of Mohanji in my daily life. It feels incredible, it feels as though I have found my way in the world and it feels like I need nothing else. I bow to the feet of Mohanji and the Tradition for showing me the way and guiding me to a new way of living.

podcast

I have found myself eagerly awaiting each new video, podcast, and programme on the UK Facebook page. I have been encouraged to join the EBC Club and the daily Power of Purity meditation sessions, and I have enjoyed every moment. It has been thought-provoking, life-changing and has given me the chance to experience pure happiness like nothing else.

I have also connected profoundly with Shirdi Sai Baba through Mohanji’s guidance and this connection has also started another beautiful journey of love for Baba. A recent experience has shown me the power of the Masters at work and provided me with huge respect for the Tradition.

One day, I received a call from my mother who was concerned about my dad as he was feeling unwell and increasingly uncomfortable with some heartburn. She was very worried and asked me to come as she was calling an ambulance.

As soon as I got to their place, I could see that my father was struggling. He was uncomfortable and had been feeling this way for a few days. Within a few minutes, the paramedics came and identified an issue on his ECG. He was told to go to the hospital with them and my mother was becoming anxious.

pooja 2

As these events were unfolding, something happened within me where I could feel inner strength. I prayed to Mohanji and Baba to help and guide. I had watched a video about the power of Baba’s Udi just the week before, and I could feel that things just started to flow. I asked my mum to give some Udi in water to my dad, as he made his way to the ambulance. He drank the water quickly and I just knew this would help him. I saw a small picture frame of Baba in my mother’s kitchen shrine and I placed it in my father’s bag. Again, this just happened like second nature.

I felt the need to connect with Mohanji and placed a message in the global prayer group. It was late in the night and I was not sure if anyone would see it, but I just did it quickly. I remember very clearly now that Subhasree came into my mind at that point, but I knew it was too late to call anyone. I somehow connected with Subhasree, and again I cannot explain, there are no coincidences. Grace was beginning to flow.

The ambulance crew were not happy with the second ECG and decided to go quickly to the hospital. Again, I felt a sense of calmness. I prayed to Baba and Mohanji, and I asked them to do whatever was in the best interests of my dad.

The paramedics decided to change course and go to a local specialist heart hospital, this was not a coincidence. It just happened like clockwork. No panic, no stress, just a sense of stillness that I felt.

As I waited in the hospital car park, I chanted Sai mantras and connected with Mohanji. I looked at my phone and saw that one person had sent prayers for my dad and then I saw Subhasree’s message. It literally pinged out of my phone with a thump!

I could not believe that she replied at this exact time of need. It was all like clockwork. She reassured me immediately as we messaged and prayed and she began Mai-Tri for my dad. Everything flowed and I didn’t feel any anxiety or panic. As soon as Subhasree said Mohanji is with you, I felt him sitting next to me in the car. It immediately calmed me further. I knew that he was taking care.

Mohanji car

My sister drove out of the car park and just as we turned the corner, we saw the paramedics who had taken my dad to the hospital. They were smiling and so helpful, they reassured us that dad had a quick procedure in a record time of 16 minutes to place a stent in his blocked artery and that he was back on the ward.

They said he was lucky to have been seen so quickly and that all had gone well with a good outcome. We spoke to him and he was fine and resting.

I could feel what had happened and I began to piece it together. Subhasree had been woken unusually that day, I had asked for help and it had come. Divine grace flowed and flowed, and my dad had not felt any pain during the procedure. Mai-Tri had been given whilst the procedure was being done.

Pooja1

The consultant, who is renowned for his skill and speed, had decided unexpectedly, to stay late that day as he was running late. He decided to spend the night at the hospital which he was not planning to do, I later found out. Again, this was not a coincidence.

I shall be eternally grateful to Mohanji, the Tradition, and to Subhasree for the love and grace given to my family that day. Eternal love, eternal gratitude!

By Subhasree Thottungal, UK

That day was a very busy day at work. Long working hours, constantly being on conference calls, by evening I was pretty drained. Shyama happened to call me for something and she realised that I was not feeling my usual self. She kindly suggested me to have a Mai-Tri session. I requested her to give me a session and then fell asleep around 11 pm. I was fast asleep.

Suddenly, I woke up and checked the time. It was 12:30 am. Once I fall asleep, normally I don’t wake up in the middle and that night when I was so tired and had received Mai-Tri, there was no reason for me to wake up. Instead of trying to fall asleep again, I just took my phone to see the time and looked at my WhatsApp. There I saw a message on the Global Chant and Prayer group from Pooja (she is from our Mohanji UK family) about her father being taken into hospital due to heart issues.

I sent my prayers for him on that group. Soon, I saw that she had messaged me privately. She was desperate to connect to Mohanji and to receive his healing for her father. While sitting at the hospital car park, she was feeling very distressed. I was guided to send her Mohanji’s Shiva Kavacham to listen and also told her that, “Mohanji is sitting right next to you.” Of course, I don’t plan and say these words nor do I say this just like that! I realised that Mohanji was sending her the message. I was just an instrument. After a few minutes, I also did a Mai-Tri session for Pooja’s father.

Around 1:20 am, Pooja messaged me saying that her father had been given the correct treatment he had urgently needed and was now recovering! While Pooja and I were talking about Mohanji’s presence with him and her, and while she was listening to the Shiva Kavacham, and while I was doing the distant Mai-Tri for him, exactly during that time, her dad was undergoing the procedure!

No doubt Mohanji was there with Pooja and her father right from the beginning when she started calling him, but he also ensured that Pooja feels his presence! By this time, I had realised that I didn’t wake up by chance! Mohanji woke me up! I had to send his message to Pooja, I had to pass on Mohanji’s energy through Mai-Tri. After that I fell sound asleep.

The next morning Pooja called me and narrated the whole thing and her realisation of Mohanji’s protection, his grace, and how faith and surrender work in reality! She even mentioned that when I sent her the message saying, “Mohanji is sitting right next to you”, she felt Mohanji in her car next to her and she immediately felt very relaxed!

Being a witness to this incident, I realised that this is yet another reminder to all of us how Mohanji is with us all the time, 24×7. Big or small, whatever the matter maybe, when we call out to him with deep faith, we can clearly see how his grace flows.

I am so happy to feel Mohanji’s grace, witness Mohanji’s miracles, and to be a real character in Mohanji Satcharitra!

Guidance from Masters

Mohanji smile (4)

These are two lovely testimonials of how Masters appear in our lives and take care of us through various mediums. The love and support of our Mohanji Acharyas in Canada are also very much appreciated by these two ladies.

Maureen Matthew, Victoria BC, Canada

I am deeply blessed to have two precious Mohanji Acharyas in Victoria BC, Canada. Through this challenging time of Covid-19, I have been guided to do 40 days of daily chanting of the Gayatri and the Maha Mrityunjaya mantras with my Acharyas. I felt the incredible vibrations within my being through this new experience even though it was on zoom. I was also graced by regular Mohanji Mai-Tri sessions with these two dear Acharyas. I felt so supported spiritually.

During this time, my deepest concern was for my 94-year-old mother in a Montreal care home, so I focused my heart energy on her loving comfort when she had Covid-19. I had many painful emotions, but instead of resisting them, I allowed them to fully be and practised letting go and surrendering to the Divine. Half the 160 residents in Mom’s care home died, while Mom and a 101-year-old woman were the only 2 survivors on the 3rd floor of the 3-floor residence. Remarkable!

I have learned a great deal through this grief period and am much more aware of egoistic noise that can create blocks. I am humbled and strengthened by the surrender process. I’m also forever grateful to have Mohanji’s love and guidance in my life and to be gifted with Cini and Eric, Mohanji’s devoted Acharyas.

May you all feel the power of Mohanji’s love in your lives.

Blessings, and namaste to all.

By Supreet Bedi, Guelph, Ontario, Canada

Baba’s leelas are never-ending! Recently I shared with you that I have been following Mohanji since last year, but not like a Guru, more like a person who talks from the heart and whose talks make sense. In the meantime, I also met one of the Mohanji Acharya’s in Canada, Sanjay bhaiya (brother). He has been very encouraging, going out of the way in his efforts to get me on this path. But besides Sanjay bhayia’s efforts, my mind was stuck, the only thing that used to come to my mind was that my Guru is Sai Baba, how can I follow another Guru.

I want to mention here that about a year ago, I had a few dreams of Baba. In one of them, I saw that I was walking down a street where there were two houses in front of each other. On one side, on the wall of the first house, I saw a big framed picture of Shirdi Sai Baba looking like a king, and in my mind, I thought maybe it’s a picture of a Raja (king) and as my eyes wanted to see Baba, I was seeing him. Now, on the other side of the road, I saw a man dressed like Sathya Sai Baba and again I thought, this can’t be Baba, he is no more, it must be someone pretending to be Baba, like someone in a performance. Then I turned my head to the other side of the road to confirm my vision once again and I then saw a small statue of Baba moving the neck as if dancing, and there were colours in the street like Holi (festival of colours) as if it was something auspicious.

During that time there was some turmoil going on in my career and I thought it was a sign that everything will settle down. However, things remained the same at work and nothing changed, but today when I think about this dream, I feel it meant spiritual progress initiation for me.

Coming back to the present, Baba patiently watched me doing nothing and then decided to take matters in his hands! For about 1-2 years, I had been having a very strong feeling that I have to do something but I was not doing it as if there was some kind of blockage on my inside. I started correlating it to the outside world; career, job, household work and my pending lists but after doing the required, nothing relaxed that feeling. I couldn’t control my worry anyway. In the meantime, Covid-19 happened and I was given time, but again I took to satisfy the needs of my family – cleaning the house, cooking new things, watching TV and sometimes even getting up late, but that feeling was still there and I wasn’t feeling happy. I started listening to podcasts by Deviji and Mohanji. I felt as if Baba was getting me closer to Mohanji, but again my doubting mind would not settle. I finally decided to ask Baba with chits in front of him. The answer came – follow Mohanji – and I asked again to confirm, and the second time, the answer was still the same and I said to Baba, if this is your wish, Mohanji will be my Guru.

mohanji-quote-doubts

I started following Mohanji from the heart and I started reading ‘Autobiography of Yogi’ as advised by Deviji on Podcast. I had read only a few pages when Sanjay bhayia asked me to apply for Consciousness Kriya. I read a little online about Kriya and I was kind of scared to commit to such a big responsibility, plus I didn’t have much understanding of the process. I asked Baba again and he said, go for it, so I submitted the application. It took me only 5 minutes to apply, meaning, without really thinking much. From my side, I submitted it but it never got submitted on the website and Sanjay bhayia kept inquiring if I received any confirmation and I said no. He said he would check.

By this time, I was progressing with my book (Autobiography of a Yogi) and started developing the feeling that I have to wake myself up and needed to work towards my journey to liberation. 4-5 days passed by and Sanjay bhayia told me that due to some technical issue the application was not submitted and I needed to fill it again. He texted me one morning at around 5 am. I was sitting in front of Baba and decided to fill the application. You would not believe this, that this time when I was writing everything was coming from the heart, I was crying while filling the form and I took about half an hour to fill it, the form that I filled in 5 minutes last time! As I submitted the application, I got the confirmation email right away. Baba wanted to shower the grace of Kriya on me but wanted to make sure I was eligible for it, and then 2 days later, I received the email for acceptance! Baba’s ways are always unique!

Many thanks to Baba and Mohanji for showering their grace on me and accelerating my journey to liberation!

Mohanji and Sai

In the divine embrace!

Mohanji wave

By Subhasree Thottungal

20th April 2020. Amidst the fight with the negativity of Corona situation all across the globe, while spreading positivity through various online programmes, shocking news came from the parental home that shook me to the core! News that I had not expected to hear! My 2nd brother Bibhu, succumbed to a sudden cardiac arrest and had left us all forever! He was healthy, happy, joyful and very active. He was just 50 years old. On that day he had been active, he had cooked a yummy special lunch that the family enjoyed, and after lunch when he was standing and talking, he suddenly fell backwards! Within minutes everything was over.

They were in Odisha, in India, my motherland. My father and mother, who are 83 and 77 years old respectively, are in deep sorrow and the whole family sunk into shock. Sitting in London, thousands of miles away, in the lockdown situation, I cannot even travel there to be with my family. What deep sorrow! Right now, with the Corona situation, we hear many shocking and deeply saddening stories of a sudden loss of family members. Going through one myself, even though not due to Corona, put me into deep contemplation.

I am writing here today, not to show how sad we are or how unfortunate the situation is, but I want to bring some facts into light that shows the amazing way that Mohanji’s divine grace works! Silently as ever in the background.

During my deep contemplation, the divine leela (play) was unfolded to me, I realised the greater truth. Once I realised this, I felt I must bring out this truth and express my understanding with all of you.

This is my expression of gratitude to my eternal guide, my eternal friend, my eternal Guru, Mohanji.

I will need to take you through some details, hence please bear with the long descriptions. But without these details, it will not be easy to understand the silent ways in which Mohanji works. 

So here it goes.

Grace in smooth completion of rituals:

As soon as I heard the news that my brother is no more, I messaged Mohanji. He replied, “I am taking care of him.”  Harish (my husband) said to me, “Don’t worry, Mohanji will make sure that all rituals happen smoothly.” There was a reason why I was worried. In the current lockdown situation, there is hardly any free movement possible, not many people can come to help my elder brother, who was at the hospital and was now solely responsible for sorting everything, with just my sister-in-law and one sister around. Since this was a sudden cardiac arrest scenario and he had already left the body by the time they reached the hospital, a post-mortem was necessary before they could release the body. It was nearly 6 pm and the post-mortem department closes at 5 pm! Police permission is required to take the body around in a vehicle with a few people. As movement is so restricted, this was a worry. And finally, where can they do the cremation? The lockdown situation was leaving my elder brother helpless. But when we have divine grace, when Mohanji is looking after us, nothing was going to be difficult! Retrospectively, we realised this. Quite unexpectedly, we got a relative’s help and the post-mortem was done quickly, police permission was received immediately and the last rights were carried out in Puri, Shree Jagannath Dham, at ‘Swargdwar’, the gateway to heavens. It’s a dream for all Odiya people (people from the state of Odisha) to have their last rights done in this place. This is a town about an hour and a half away and travels outside the city wasn’t an easy deal! But everything happened smoothly, the travel, the last rights at Swargdwar and all the rituals finished in mere 4-5 hours! Unbelievable! I remembered what Harish had said to me earlier, “Mohanji will make everything work out smoothly.” I was witnessing this!

The soul’s journey to Light:

Sitting in London, it was getting very difficult for me to accept the situation. Especially since I was unable to even travel immediately, it was making me very uncomfortable. Very much stressed, I dozed off for a while. After some time, I woke up with a start/unusual feeling. I felt that my brother’s soul was unsettled. I got worried. The last thing I wanted at this time was for his soul to be unsettled, not in peace! I got truly worried. I wondered what to do? What mantra can I chant? What ritual can I do? An immediate thought came to my mind, should I ask Mohanji? At that point, we called my elder brother and understood that the rituals of the last rights had just started.

Immediately after that, within 5 minutes, I received a call from Mohanji. And he advised me of a simple ritual to do. He said, “As a family member, you do this 3 times. After that, I will take care.” He repeated this a couple of times. That was the greatest reassurance to me at that point. Moreover, I was totally blown over by the fact that a few minutes back I was thinking of reaching out to Mohanji asking him what to do, and he called me and showed the way! After the ritual, I could feel a lightness and I knew, my brother’s soul was now at peace. The next day, I heard from my nephew (my brother’s son) who was doing the rituals that he noticed a peaceful smile on my brother’s face! And when I was looking into the timelines, this was just after Mohanji’s assurance and the rituals that he suggested! I realised, without a doubt, Mohanji had done his job! As he said, “I will take care”, and indeed he had done that!

Healing to me and my family:

Even though I was aware of the karmic agenda of the soul that I knew as my brother and the karmic agenda of all the family members, it was still a great sadness and I was unable to handle the heaviness. I was feeling very distressed and heavy. At one point, I felt if I should reach out to one of our Mai-Tri practitioners? Then I reminded myself of Mohanji’s words. Mohanji is looking after. He is taking care. When we are in his direct protection, why worry? Later on, when I was talking to my mother, I felt her extreme pain. Losing her son is unimaginable pain for any mother. I had no words to console to my elderly mother on the phone from so far away. I didn’t know what to do! Once again, I surrendered to Mohanji and I slept that night.

Mohanji3

The next morning, when I woke up, I was feeling slightly lighter. And then I thought to myself, I should just write to Mohanji about my mother. Knowing that he is anyway taking care, sometimes by conveying my thoughts through words gives me a complete release of pain. So I did, and Mohanji immediately responded, “Yes. I am aware. I shall do whatever I can.”

He also wrote, “Inevitable karma decides the life of individuals. Like Maha Kaali told the Avadhoota that she cannot even extend one hour of his life from the original or decrease one hour from the original. Even deities honour karma. I am trying to reduce its impact on the people affected. Keep doing what I had told you to do that day. Puri Jagannath never lets anyone down. Believe me.”

After reading this message, I felt the heaviness from my heart disappear! At that time, I saw a new video message from Mohanji being posted. I opened it and while my eyes were watching Mohanji through the video and my ears were listening to Mohanji’s voice, I dozed off again!

Sometime later, my phone rang. I could barely open my eyes; I looked at the phone but fell asleep again!

After some time, I felt a slight pressure on my left shoulder. I saw Mohanji’s right hand with a red/orange thread on his wrist! Yes, I had a clear vision of Mohanji’s right hand holding my left shoulder! I woke up and just then my phone rang again. I picked it up this time. (It was as if Mohanji woke me up to attend the phone call!)

It was my mother on the other side. I was pleasantly surprised to hear her voice, with a clear difference from the previous day. I felt as if the huge dark load had been released from her too. She was still sad and was crying, but the heavy negative darkness from the previous day that was also making me heavy had gone! I spoke to her for a long time! After talking to her, I realised, Mohanji had surely healed her. I remembered the message he had sent me that morning! My eyes filled with tears at Mohanji’s immense compassion. Mohanji responds to me, my every thought, my every word, even when I don’t speak to him! He never stops delivering his unconditional love, support and compassion. Just then I received a message from my friend from Mohanji family in the USA, telling me that the previous night, Mohanji had asked her to do Mai-Tri for me! The previous night! When I was so heavy! I had no words! Mohanji himself had organised me to receive Mai-Tri! Remember, I was feeling like asking someone for Mai-Tri but didn’t? But Mohanji knew what was needed!

i am with you

Oh, Mohanji! Only these words from my melting heart came out. Arranging my healing, removing the heaviness from my mother, I knew Mohanji had healed her too. I expressed my gratitude to Mohanji and my ever compassionate Guru wrote back, “I care for you.”

Well, do I need any more proof!

Mohanji’s caring doesn’t end here. Let me continue after this.

Sorry this is getting long, but believe me, every word of this story that I am narrating in my current grieving situation, is coming with my highest realisation of truth.

Arranging divine grace for the soul:

When I was talking to my mother, I was discussing the various rituals that we need to be doing here in London. I was wondering, in our current lockdown situation, that I cannot even call a priest to do the rituals on special days!

Once again, Mohanji heard this thought and sorted out my dilemma. Let me explain how.

Later that morning, I received a condolence message from Swami Surya from the Skanda Vale ashram. The moment I saw his message, I wondered if maybe I could request him if they could do puja on the special days as per our rituals. With slight hesitation, I mentioned this to him. Swami Surya, wrote back, the day for which I was requesting, was, in fact, such an auspicious day and they have special pujas in all the temples in Skanda Vale, ending with a Mahabhishek in the Maha Kali temple! He said he will gladly offer the puja that day for my brother. My eyes opened widely at this message from him. Puja at Maha Kali temple for my brother’s soul! And you know what? My brother has been a great devotee of Maha Kali from his childhood!

And now, amidst the lockdown situation, such a divine blessing was planned, all by Guru Mandala. My head bowed down to Mohanji again. It wasn’t too difficult for me to realise that this was indeed Moahnji’s leela, yet again answering my thoughts, “How can I do the rituals”, and arranging Swami’s message to come to me at the right time etc.!

paduka

Last but not least, feeding the Brahmins:

After arranging the puja at Skanda Vale for the 11th-day ceremony, I felt like arranging some food seva in India through Ammucare for these 11 days as Ammucare was already doing daily feeding of the poor people whose income had stopped completely due to the lockdown situation. I felt what better ritual can I arrange than offering food seva for the poor people in my brother’s memory.

I contacted Soma didi, Ammucare President and she very kindly agreed to this request. She asked me where I would like this annadanam to happen. I said anywhere they are doing is fine, but if they can arrange it in Shirdi, that would be great. She then mentioned that it may be difficult as there was a lot of police restrictions etc. in Shirdi at the moment. I assured her it didn’t matter, wherever they can do, that would be a great seva.

The next day, I was talking to my mother again. She mentioned at a point that on the 10th and 11th days, we needed to feed at least that many Brahmins/priests. But due to the lockdown situation, they were not getting more than 3!

As soon as I kept the phone, I saw a message from Ammucare team, in which they had given the schedule for the 11 days of feeding!

During the first 3 days, feeding in Shirdi!

During the following five days, feeding in Ganeshpuri.

And last 3 days, feeding in Arunachala, and to Sadhus!

This was clearly a divine arrangement again! We had wanted Shirdi, but it had not seemed possible. But the team had managed to arrange it there.

And the last 3 days, for the most important ritual days, if not Brahmins at my mother’s place, feeding Sadhus in Arunachala! Can it be any more auspicious than this?

Also, when we were worried that we were not able to call many people and offer food during these days, the food seva happening during all the 11 days in these places was much more than what we could have anyway done!

When I narrated about this to my family, all were so grateful to Ammucare and its volunteers, and above all to Mohanji.

It’s not a big thing to realise that it was no one but Mohanji, who was ensuring that all these wishes were being fulfilled, doing everything possible to bring peace to my brother’s soul and some solace to my grieving family.

I can’t end this write up without mentioning that hundreds of Mohanji Global family members have been with us during this grieving period, giving us their condolences and prayers. Many Acharyas have offered their online chanting and satsang sessions for the smooth transition of my brother’s soul.

All this is because we are one MOHANJI FAMILY! And truly, this has healed us so amazingly.

My heartfelt gratitude to the entire Mohanji Global family.

I offer my pranams and a heart full of gratitude and love to Mohanji, who has kept my family and me in his divine embrace.

Thank you Mohanji.

An attitude of gratitude

mohanji-m-org

Two lovely ladies from the Mohanji family share with us their expressions of deep gratitude to Mohanji, for his love and protection in their lives every moment in time. 

“What can be the highest prayer? The prayer of gratitude. Those who are grateful are also graceful. They are filled with Grace.” – Mohanji

Kim Khim, South Africa

As you all know, I tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. I was tested on the 17th of March and received the results on the 23rd. As you can well imagine, I was shocked and quite gutted by the news. I was put onto medication to treat my immediate flu-like symptoms and sent home to rest. I have spent all my time between then and now, in relative isolation.

During this lockdown/isolation period, I have had much time to reflect on my life and my spiritual journey.

It’s been a time of deep introspection, where one really looks at what is really important to one, and who is important to one. In my case, I too had to really face my mortality. There were moments where I thought if this is the end of the line for me, then so be it. I will go peacefully and gracefully. It has not been easy, and at times my breathing was a problem, but somehow I have managed to pull through this.

fears

I do believe that one’s faith and strength of mind are the two weapons against this pandemic. If you look inside and you turn to your God/faith/Guru etc., you will find all your answers and you will find peace in this time of crisis.

I have stuck with my vegetarian/vegan eating. I have taken many supplements like NAC, zinc, Vit C, propolis, and enjoyed the lemon/ginger teas that my beautiful daughters have schlepped up to me on a daily basis. I have been incredibly fortunate to have the love and support of my children, my mother, family, my dearest friends, and of course the Mohanji family who have unwaveringly been there for me with Mai-Tri, meditations, words of encouragement and upliftment.

Milica, Delo, Julie and Sjarn just kept bringing me back into the light, each time I fell apart. My daughters have been undeniably my two rocks. They have fed me and nursed me, looked after me like you would an infant. It’s just been a life-changing experience, where I as the parent, became their charge, and they took complete responsibility with no fear, and just became the most amazing two moms to me.

With all this being said, I have now tested negative to this virus. I have recovered from it. I still have a way to go in terms of complete healing of my lungs (as I am asthmatic). Please all be safe! And thank you for your messages, prayers and good wishes. It’s this energy which saved my life!

Thank you to our beloved Mohanji, who kept me in his hand and protected me. I know that you are always with me!

gratitude1

 

Anonymous, India

I would like to share a miracle which happened a few days ago. I was preparing a sweet dish with rice, moong dal and jaggery. Rice and dal were getting cooked in one pan and in another pan, the syrup of jaggery was getting ready. The rice and dal mixture was ready and the jaggery syrup was boiling and almost ready.

gratitude

Before I could remove the syrup and pour it into the rice and dal mixture, I don’t know what happened, the pan in which the jaggery syrup was boiling, slipped from the gas cooker and the hot syrup fell on my right foot. You may wonder what happened next. The syrup should have got stuck to my foot and burnt it and I would have been howling in pain. But why fear when Para Brahma Mohanji is there.

Nothing that you might have expected to happen turned true. The syrup which fell on my foot didn’t give me the slightest discomfort. I didn’t feel the heat, nor was there any mark on my foot. I just washed my foot and there was no trace of anything! Of course, I had to clean my kitchen many times.

I am sure it was our Mohanji who had come and saved me from what could have been a bad accident.  Thank you so much for saving me and for always being there when I need you.

Love you loads, dearest Mohanji.

The magic of Maha Mrityunjaya mantra

Mohanji1

By Rani Govender, South Africa

“Let every breath we take lead us and the society to more awareness and Freedom.” – Mohanji

It is with this thought in mind that I sat to begin Maha Mrityunjaya chanting on 26 March 2020. There was a call from the President of South Africa for all citizens to pray at 18h00 for protection and healing from the coronavirus, so I decided to do the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra for all those infected and affected by the virus and to alleviate fear in the general population of the world.

I wanted a recorded version to chant along to and played one which was shared on our temple WhatsApp group. The pronunciation on this recording did not sound right to me, so I set about to find one which would work well for me. This is how determined I was. Now, I see it as a gentle nudge from the Masters.

Chanting

So I googled and found a chant on YouTube which repeated the mantra 108 times. I began chanting and very quickly became immersed. Despite my throat becoming hoarse, I was determined to chant 108 times and complete my sadhana.

Mohanji Manasarovar

 

Whenever I chant/meditate, I mentally go to Lake Manasarovar. This visualisation just comes naturally to me. This time while chanting, I saw a beautiful form of the Divine Mother dressed in a red and gold Benares sari, walking out of the water. She stayed a while and gave me her darshan.

 

I enjoyed the darshan of the Divine Mother and continued chanting. Then I suddenly saw the Earth from space. A Sage/Sadhu was walking around the planet sprinkling something. As he walked around, I saw that he used Neem leaves to bless the planet.

As the chanting continued, I saw the Earth divided with lines running vertically. This looked like they could be the Ley lines or energy meridians of the Earth. Seated on top of the planet was a person meditating in padmasana pose, (lotus pose) like Shiva. This vision continued for some time and I was in bliss.

At the end of the chanting, I got the feeling that all will be well and that whatever is happening is karmic and that Mother Earth must heal.

Before the chanting, I had severe sciatica pain for two days. Despite this pain, I managed to clean the lamps at our Temple and also do all my household chores. Although I pushed through the pain, it was an effort.

Earlier in the afternoon (before the chanting), I found it difficult to get on and off the recliner on which I was resting. After the chanting, I noticed it became easier to get on and off until finally at bedtime, it had eased considerably. I could lie on my side with no pain emanating from my left leg. A day after the chanting, the pain eased to almost nothing!

I was amazed. I was blessed to experience the healing powers of the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra.

This chant is extremely powerful for healing. Chant to protect yourself, your family, community, country and the world at large.

I am in deepest gratitude to Mohanji and the Masters for providing me with this beautiful experience and for the healing which was provided.

Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi Om.

Kalpataru Series – A day of grace and gratitude

Mohanji Laughing

By Chitra A S, Kerala, India

Mohanji has always taken care of our wishes, small or big. We realise at some point how beautifully he fulfills our wishes. I am thankful to the Kalpataru – Mohanji, The wish-fulfilling treeseries through which I would like to share how some of my wishes have been fulfilled by Mohanji and his instruments.

I had been noticing on FB the photos of Gapless Breathing done in various places. I always wondered how can I experience this powerful technique given by Mohanji. Since this is a very special technique, it only happens either on Retreats or in Acharya Programs by Mohanji Acharyas, that too only by a few who are trained. We did not have any Acharyas in Kerala who could do it. I felt I will receive this when I am eligible. So, I surrendered my wish to Mohanji.

A few days later, I messaged Subhasree and I thought of inquiring more about this training. By the end of the conversation, we had an Acharya program planned in Kochi in about 8 days, where she would conduct Gapless Breathing! She was only briefly landing at Kochi airport en route to her in-law’s place and such a program was not in her agenda earlier! I had no words to say besides thanks to Mohanji for fulfilling my wish so soon through his Acharya.

There was barely one week to arrange the program! We had no idea how many people would attend at such short notice. Nevertheless, we decided to keep it simple, organising it in my house and I conveyed the information with all the people locally that I knew. Subhasree was happy with the arrangements and we finalised the program. I was on top of the world. I could see how beautifully Mohanji was arranging this, as that day it was also the special Bhagavat Gita day and Guruvayur Ekadasi. I felt this was Mohanji’s immense blessing for me to arrange such an event at our home. Mohanji was not only fulfilling my wish, but he also blessed me with such an opportunity. I say it was Mohanji’s blessings because we were in a dilemma of whether to arrange a hall or to do at home, as we only had very few days and not enough publicity. I finally, did a ‘lucky dip’ in front of Mohanji’s photo to see where this program should be conducted – in the hall or at my house,  and the answer was ‘at your house.’

As the days were passing, initially, I was a bit worried about getting enough participants. Then I realised why should I worry about it? It is Mohanji’s program and Mohanji should decide on who can join the program. I surrendered wholeheartedly to Mohanji. I am just a participant here and was very excited as my wish of experiencing Gapless Breathing was getting fulfilled.

Mohanji heard me. My anxiety of who will be the attendees of this programme was taken care of him in such an amazing way. It was a leela of Krishna himself, which I realised a bit later. I wish to share with all of you some incidents that happened during this arrangement and the program.

One of my friends from our M family gave me her friend’s contact number to invite her and I made a call to that person. The lady on the other side felt sad because she had booked to travel to Bangalore and so would not be able to attend the program. I messaged my M friend about it and she asked me to call her again to request her to share the information about this program with her group of friends. So, again I called that lady. I could hear the lady sobbing and she started talking to me, “Madam, I was thinking about ending my life when you called me first!” I was shocked as she shared her story. I talked to her for fifteen minutes (Although using ‘I’, the words that were spoken to her for soothing her pain was entirely chosen by Mohanji) and she changed her unnecessary thoughts of suicide. I promised her a Power of Purity Meditation session soon. For me, it was a big shock initially which turned out to be a surprise at the end and I realised that Mohanji had operated through me.

After 4 days, I felt like calling a retired teacher who had come for a Power of Purity Meditation previously to my house, but she also had to attend a wedding that day. She, however, asked me for a Mai-Tri session for her neighbour some days later. But again, in the evening, for some reason I felt like calling her again to call her and invite her to attend the program in the afternoon if possible, with that neighbour. While I had slight hesitation thinking if it will look like I am persuading people to attend, later that evening I called her. I told her to avail of this great opportunity and asked her whether she really had to attend the wedding (did I just say that?). She cried saying that the wedding was not at all important and she needed to attend the program of Mohanji and shared a brief history of hers in a hurry. This came as a shock to me! I then realised it was indeed Mohanji who wanted me to contact her! But, my ego wasn’t allowing me to do so for hours. So, the Tradition decides who should attend, for sure.

(This inspiring quote was sent to me by our Anitha Nandakumar when I conducted a POP Meditation at my house previously).

While the preparation for the event was going on, I had messaged Subhasree that I only had a Malayalam version of the book, ‘The Power of Purity‘. She spontaneously suggested that she would bring some books with her.

Finally, the day came, Subhasree arrived in Kochi and we received her from the airport and brought her to our house. After a short break and refreshments, we were ready to start the program. I was already feeling so happy that in spite of the short notice, we were about 10 of us. Before starting the program, Subhasree handed me the following things. I was delighted and speechless. I couldn’t get the words to thank her. I hadn’t expected her to bring all these things for me. A program of Mohanji in my house itself was more than anything I could have expected! This in itself was a surprise for the whole family and the participants who would be present that day!

I was speechless to see yet another leela of Mohanji and how he fulfilled my wish!

Yes, I had wished to get Guru Leela books and I also needed Mohanji’s cards, which I had struggled to get hold of. It was so sweet of Subhasree to bring all these things from the UK for me, which I understood that Mohanji fulfilling even this wish of mine. These were not simply books and cards, but pieces of evidence that Mohanji listens to us and fulfills our wishes.

As I started reciting the Bhagavat Gita and the Vishnu Sahasranama, slowly the rest of the participants joined me and we completed the chanting with devotion and focus.

Next was the power-packed Gapless Breathing session. Blood started circulating rapidly in the body during the session, which can be seen in the photos (all the faces were red). We could exactly experience the feeling of being a baby in a mother’s womb, feeling protected by our mother, thus giving us an assurance that all of us were within our favourite God or Guru and were protected by him/her.

After the lunch break, we had the Group Mai-Tri session. This technique is also very special and for the first time, we were blessed to experience this. Only a few Mai Tri practitioners can conduct these group sessions. Once again, we were soaked in the powerful energy of beeja mantras, calling Dattatreya, Kali Maa, and Mohanji, and invoking the entire Guru Mandali. I really enjoyed this and didn’t want it to be over. But, the time flew by so fast and it was time to wind up.

When we offered Aarati to Mohanji, my eyes were filled with tears of gratitude, devotion and total surrender. I couldn’t thank him enough for fulfilling my wishes with so much compassion and even giving me more than I expected.

After a tea break, everyone shared their experiences on both the sessions and Subhasree shared many Guru Leelas of Mohanji. Inspired by her, we all started to discuss our own experiences and we all felt joyful and rejuvenated after the powerful sessions. All the attendees were new to Gapless Breathing and the group Mai-Tri. Everyone felt high positive energy throughout the sessions. Some were new and hadn’t seen Mohanji yet. Gapless Breathing was breath purifying and group Mai-Tri was deeply cleansing.

These were the lovely words spoken by the participants.

“I was feeling tired and now I am feeling energetic and happy.”

“At the end of the session, my heart was filled with love, I felt joy and the pain in my leg seems to have decreased.”

“I’m feeling peaceful, silence and happy.”

“I saw Mohanji holding my hands firmly and went down some steps, and then saw myself with my family having some discussion. I’m also having a deep sleep.”

“I’m feeling happy and contented.”

“I have asthma, but now I am feeling comfortable after the breathing session. The group Mai-Tri felt powerful and I want to have individual Mai-Tri soon.”

“Earlier I had breathing trouble and I thought I had some heart issues. After Gapless Breathing, I’m feeling comfortable. Sometimes I used to feel negative energy and I felt like it was going away during group Mai-Tri. I’m feeling free and positive now.”

“I’m feeling happy, peaceful and grateful for having experienced such a beautiful session. It was an awesome experience. I used to sleep at 2 am because of the high humidity with only a few hours of sleep, but after this program, I’m sleeping well from about 9.30/10.30 pm.”

Thank you to Subhasree for being Mohanji’s instrument in conducting this beautiful program at my home.

My humble pranaams to you Mohanji, please let your grace be available to everyone through all of us. May everyone reading this post receive abundant grace from Mohanji and the Guru Mandali.

Peru with Mohanji – a healing journey

By Livia

This is a personal story. Being an introvert, I wasn’t planning to write about it for a broad public, but I feel there is a reason for sharing which is beyond our preferences. May it reach those who were meant to read it.

For about ten years, I have been suffering from a lung condition, which is so rare that the medical profession doesn’t have any expertise on it and therefore there is no appropriate treatment. My lung would collapse all of a sudden. In the beginning, it was every three to four months, later on, once per month or even more often. On most of the occasions, the collapse was partial, followed by a sharp pain in the upper chest area and shortness of breath. The pain would subside after some time, but the shortness of breath would last for days; and depending on the severity of the episode, sometimes for weeks.

The years 2014-2018 were really hard for me. I was physically quite weak but was doing my best to keep up with my daily schedule and house chores. Many people from my surroundings, who are not very close to me, hadn’t noticed much, but I was exhausted all the time. When I finish my obligations, I would withdraw to recharge because my energy was very low. Also since 2014, I wasn’t able to travel by plane because of this condition. The pressure change in the cabin during a flight could worsen my health. Living in Western Europe with parents and family in the Balkan region, it was quite a challenge to travel. Needless to say, it was exhausting me on different levels, the physical, but also the anticipation and fears connected to it (“what if it happens…,” “will this ever come to an end,” “would I be able to heal,” and “what if it gets even more severe?”).

Being a holistic therapist myself, I tried many modalities and nothing really gave tangible results.

When I met Mohanji in 2017 in Hvar (Croatia), where I traveled for three long days by train, bus and ferry and, probably from the exhausting journey, by the end of it, I got another episode of a collapsed lung. I was weak and worried. Mohanji told me that the condition was to do with one of my previous lives and advised me to have a Mai-Tri session with Devi. During the session, Devi saw me in a war-like scene, being physically abused by men in uniform and an iron claw-kind of a weapon being forced into my chest. She didn’t know anything about my problem at that point in time. The resemblance of this picture with the sharp pain in my chest I was feeling at the beginning of every episode was stunning.

My second retreat with Mohanji was at the Bosnian Pyramids in 2018. I came by airplane! It was my first flight after four years. I was already feeling Mohanji’s protection and although my health was still not good with many collapses, pain, and weakness, I felt it’ll be ok to fly. And it was.

Every time I met Mohanji, receiving his blessings, cleansing, and with my practices and connection to his energy, my condition started improving gradually. I also started sessions with a healer who told me that my problem was of a karmic nature and therefore the modalities that are not addressing that deep level cannot have much impact. The collapses were gradually getting less frequent with more time to recuperate in between.

At the end of 2018, I saw the announcement of the Peru trip with Mohanji scheduled for April 2019. My first thoughts were: how great this journey must be, such beautiful nature, how magnificent it all looked in the photos and how precious the experiences were of the participants who went there the year before. The energy of the female principle, Shakti, the nurturing, soothing, beautiful energy of Pacha mama and the impact that it had on the people was heartwarming. But my rational mind reminded me of my condition, the flight of 14 hours and the altitude of the places where the pilgrimage was taking place. Yes, it looked great, but it wasn’t for me. I dismissed the whole idea, maybe some other time. I just whispered to myself: if I have to go, I will get a sign, but I had no expectations as it really looked impossible.

One morning at the beginning of March just before waking up, I had such a clear dream of Mohanji. He was sitting at a big table together with many other people and I was sitting next to him. I had one question on my mind, regarding that trip to Peru, but I wasn’t able to utter the question, although I wanted to ask. So he reached out to me, by telepathically asking me what the problem was with that trip…”Is it about the money?” “No,” I answered, “It is about my condition…” then he said, “It’ll be taken care of.” I further said something like, “I was expecting a sign.” He said, “Well if this is not good enough…” I woke up in amazement, in complete awe! “This is extraordinary! I have never had a dream so clear before! I told my husband, and he acknowledged my thoughts and supported my intention to go. The same morning I wrote to the organization of the trip to ask if it was still possible to apply since it was only one month to the beginning of the program. And of course, it was!

This was quite a long introduction, but necessary to explain how this Peru trip happened for me in the first place. The preparations for the trip were made in a very short time. I would lie if I said that I wasn’t anxious or that my mind didn’t doubt the whole ‘invitation’ dream. But I was committed to go and really happy that I was going, despite all odds. Just before the trip, I googled a couple of names of the other participants and amongst them all, I remembered a lady, Thea, a Mai-Tri practitioner from the US who looked very light and seemed to have fine energy. I thought to myself how nice it would be if I could have a chance to talk to that lady… and sure enough a couple of days later, although the original schedule was different, Thea was sitting in the same mini-bus (transfer to the hotel) at the airport in Cusco together with one other lady from the US! So, the three of us traveled together, had a beautiful exchange of life stories and great fun. What a perfect beginning to the journey! I already felt that soothing, feminine energy that I was so looking forward to.

Over the next few days, when we were traveling from the hotel to the places of interest, I was again sitting next to Thea on the bus. As she already knew about my health concerns, she offered to do a Mai-Tri session for me, right there on the bus! I was really pleased with her offer and thankfully accepted it. She did a couple of sessions on different bus trips. She would invoke Mohanji’s presence and his energy was palpable to her. It was very special and a little surreal because Mohanji in his physical body was sitting in the front line of the same bus!!

Although I feel weak and exhausted at home, I felt very energetic during the whole Peru pilgrimage. I felt a lot of soothing energies, lots of love from the group members and people surrounding us. I climbed to the Sun Gate of Machu Picchu, walked and chatted with people, in some places at the altitude of almost 4000m without any physical issues! It was completely unbelievable from the perspective of a rational mind!

On the last day on a bus to an Inka site, I sat next to Mohanji. That was my first chance on this trip to talk to Mohanji about my personal issues. We talked about ways of protection from negative energies, expressing positivity, non-doership and some personal issues that I brought up. He gave me some practical advice and then said, “You are much more liberated now than when you came here!” I looked at him a bit puzzled. He said, “Your lung, how is it now?” Then it occurred to me that I was breathing with full lung capacity with no pain! I really felt liberated at being able to freely move, walk, and climb mountain trails without any pain, shortage of breath or tiredness. How smoothly it was all going for me and how different it was compared to my state of health I was experiencing at home. Mohanji was tirelessly working on me and the result was really liberating! I was immensely happy, but I was also wondering if I was going to be able to keep this state and stay liberated from the pain and suffering after I return home and resume my ‘normal life.’

Now we are almost eight months later in linear time and I still feel and cherish the gift I’ve got from Mohanji on the Peru trip. I still feel quite well physically and much more at peace mentally. Although I am a worrying type of person, I haven’t been anxious or thinking much of the possibility that the condition might reoccur. I am much more at peace with my health. The condition is still not completely gone, but the episodes occur less frequently and they are far milder than they used to be. I have started traveling by plane again on a regular basis!

I feel deep gratitude to Mohanji for healing me on many levels. I feel that the healing started as soon as I connected with him for the first time and culminated during the Peru trip last spring. But of course, the journey doesn’t end there. I’m still ‘rowing my boat’ and the weather changes. After this experience of healing that is so real and unquestionable to me, and after practically experiencing what Mohanji meant by “It’ll be taken care of,” deep in my being, I now feel that I can relax and have faith.

Thank you Mohanji, for this wonderful experience! Thank you for your work and availability to every being who asks or connects to you in any way! Thank you for your teachings, they make my journey smoother and my life much more meaningful!

With deep gratitude.
