Bliss in Meditation

Here are some beautiful experiences shared by participants on Mohanji’s guided meditations. Many participants had profound experiences and were amazed at the consistency with which they were able to do this sadhana. RimJhim, Padmini share some insights from this meditation which enriched them and Charles jokingly refers to them as ‘The Mohanji shortcuts’.

Rimjhim Prasad, India

I am very new to the Mohanji Foundation. Honestly, I did not know what to expect out of this meditation, but I started my journey in good faith. About a week back, when I sat for meditation, I felt sick with heaviness in the head, backache and nausea. I thought I would never be able to complete my meditation that day. But to my surprise, not only did I complete my meditation successfully that day; since then, I haven’t experienced any pain in my neck and head region, which is very common with me. The next day when I sat for meditation, suddenly there was an outburst of tears, and throughout the meditation, they were pouring out uncontrollably. But that night, I slept like a child. When I got up the next day, I felt very light from within, as if a lot of burdens I had been carrying since I don’t know for how long has been removed. I haven’t met Mohanji, and I do not know if I am actually connected with him, as I’ve never had any spiritual guru or guidance earlier. 

I surrendered myself to Mohanji, saying that please let me complete my meditation today as I’ve vowed to experience the 41-day meditation without missing a single day! I’ve started my journey in good faith, and may he guide me and bless me always!

Padmini Ravi Kumar, Dubai

On 15th June, the Bliss of Silence meditation was very turbulent to start.

As the breathing began, many people and many faces unknown, of different races and from different periods were flashing in my mind. It was like a rapid succession of picture slides flooding in, flashing in front of me; the mind was spinning.

There were times when I didn’t hear Mohanji’s instructions in the meditation. This flashing of faces went on for some time, and suddenly when Mohanji told us to go slow in our breathing without our lungs being aware, somewhere at that point, the madness or flashing pictures stopped all of a sudden.

A sentence flashed in my mind, or I heard (I am not sure), 

“Silence is the substratum on which sounds dance.”  

This was very clear. 

Then Lord Shiva, larger than life, appeared. He was all-encompassing; there was only Him, nothing else!

Soon after, a vision of Krishna sprouted, followed by many Krishnas and myriad people doing ‘Raas’ with him.

Then I heard Mohanji’s voice asking us to be aware of the body as part of the meditation.

I bow in gratitude to Mohanji for this beautiful opportunity for group meditation and for enabling me to get deeper into the silence within.

The Mohanji Shortcut by Charles Ndifon Londi

Humanity generally loves shortcuts to go somewhere or to achieve something in life. Why spend so much time and energy going all the way when there is a shorter route to get something or arrive at a destination? This expediency is particularly noticeable in the political and social milieux, where people take shortcuts to power, wealth, and fame no matter the consequences to themselves or their society. Here we look at shortcuts, from the spiritual perspective, not in a very favourable way.

Many gruesome stories abound of people in the socio-political sphere who tried to short-circuit life by using shortcuts and ended up regretting their actions. It would appear that one’s real intent, most probably of an altruistic nature, would determine if taking a shortcut is worth it. They involve a lot of creativity on the part of anyone who is in any situation, so they could be very personal and unique to different individuals.

As a Mohanji student, I have come up with what I call the Mohanji Shortcut to help keep my heart centre open and ”Just be love for a few more moments, just be love forever” as Mohanji prescribes in Blossoms of Love Meditation. I have found out, and many can attest, that it is not so easy to demonstrate the love that Mohanji talks about. Each individual is love already, as Guruji says since the fabric from which we are cut is love, but a keen observation proves that the perception, recognition, and realization of ourselves as already beings of love not needing to seek love but just to express it is another thing altogether. In fact, it is not easy to work from the Master’s prescribed point of view as the mind sometimes goes crazy, keeps judging, analyzing, condemning, seeing things in categories rather than as a whole.

Even after doing the meditations diligently, you may sometimes hear the mind saying, ”You are undeserving of my attention. You are crude, rude, ungrateful, unkind, and scheming, and I don’t want to have anything to do with you” regarding another person. This may be accentuated by the fact that some people may want to use you as a footstool because you talk to them about love, as outlined by Mohanji. So they want to attach to you, take advantage of you, and abuse the love that you so generously pour out in various forms. ”Oh, he/she is a God-loving person”, they say and think you can put up with just about anything. I have experienced this countless times, and it is ongoing. However, I reckon that as free beings of love, we also have the freedom to give or withhold love using our sense of spiritual discrimination. This may entail an opening and closing of the heart centre, which Mohanji wants us to keep open constantly. This is where the Mohanji Shortcut helps keep one in a constant state of love awareness consciously and unconsciously.

What I jokingly call the Mohanji Shortcut is remembering to do everything in Mohanji’s name where I cannot help myself, where the mind overrides, and I become judgemental with so many ‘whys’. Since Mohanji Consciousness is the highest state that we all aspire for, doing acts in his name in normal and difficult circumstances when the mind interferes helps to keep the ‘I’ or ‘ME’ factor in abeyance and behold, love, steals into my heart without me knowing. And sometimes I have fun walking, eating, chatting, sleeping, dancing, taking medication, etc., in Mohanji’s name. I find that doing things in his name engenders sweet remembrance of the Master and that which he represents– the Universal Supreme Consciousness. In one situation, when in a quandary of what to do or say, I just asked myself, ”How would Mohanji act in this situation?”

The answer that flowered was ‘with love.’ All that Mohanji presents (talks, retreats, seminars, Guided Meditations, books, and discourses) and represents is a shortcut to unblemished supreme consciousness/awareness of life.

Bliss of Silence meditation – part 1

These two beautiful testimonials of grace and blessings were experienced during the Bliss of Silence global 41-day programme. Suveetha shares with us her moments of true inner silence and Sankaranarayanan his mergence with the formless omnipresent divine energy. As shared in these stories, Mohanji’s love and blessings are ever present for all the participants who took part in this programme.

By Suveetha Ganesh, Australia

Jai Mohanji. I surrender everything I write of this experience at the feet of my Guru Mohanji. I am Suveetha, and I live in Melbourne. I attended a zoom meditation session on Bliss of Silence on 16th June 2021 conducted by Mohanji Acharyas Zoran and Sanjay. It was a beautiful experience. I was totally floored by the way Mohanji had orchestrated me being present in this session. Another participant also narrated her powerful experience with the meditation and the circumstances in which she joined the session when she hadn’t really planned on it initially. The most amazing part was that the circumstances that she described that she was in and the suppression of speech in certain situations also totally resonated with me. 

I just sat there in awe at the sheer grace of putting people in similar situations for meditation and helping them release the required baggage. I have noticed this in many other Mohanji programs varying from Mai-Tri sessions to meditations. The experience has been really powerful and almost magical, as I would like to call it. To me, Mohanji is a real-life superhero with magical powers, and my journey of spirituality with Mohanji has been nothing less than that out of a larger than life comic series. 

I started looking at my experiences with the same curiosity of reading a comic book, and in a very weird way, it helped me look at the whole thing from an open perspective. On deeper thought, I felt this was the best way suited to my generally easy-going personality. I love humour and enjoy a good laugh to deal with even the most gruesome events in life. It was very interesting that this aspect of me was also reflected in my meditation experiences many times. This also strengthened my faith in Mohanji and his compassion to reach out to people as his phrase goes, “Just be the way you are”. 

I have never experienced such genuine care and attention to detail or anything like this in my entire life. I am truly grateful to Mohanji and Guru Mandala for giving me these beautiful experiences and now for empowering me to write about them. Now, I will get back to the experience that I was writing to share. As the meditation began, especially with the visualisation and the sound of the waterfall in the background, I started feeling some intense vibrations in the upper part of my body. Along with this, at some point, I felt like the water from the waterfall was hitting me and my body and that I was the water reservoir under the waterfall. 

A voice in my head told me to calm down and breathe deeply and watch it again. Suddenly, I realised that I was in the water reservoir and I could feel the vibrations of the water falling, but I remained very much undisturbed, just like the water underneath. At that point, as if by magic, my body stopped vibrating and calmed down, and I could feel the detached observation of the water reservoir as it looks at this turbulent waterfall. The waterfall appears to disturb the stillness of the reservoir; however, the deep undisturbed aspect of the water is always still. It felt like a powerful revelation for me as I am going through a period of turmoil in my life regarding relationships, emotions and people, much like the hitting waterfall. 

However, as I connected deeper into me, I could see the still undisturbed part of me watching these events, much like the reservoir. This was what I understood from the experience as it related to my life. As I narrated this to Zoran, he explained that the vibrations are forms of release for letting go of complex and suppressed emotions or patterns. 

That explained a lot as I went through the meditation; I had various sensations in different parts of my body, especially around the heart chakra area. I was feeling anxious at the beginning of the meditation and felt it rise up and down in intensity throughout the duration of the session. I was surrendering my anxiety at his feet and requested him to help me resolve it, and then as if by magic, I felt the anxiety evaporating into the light, and I started feeling lighter. 

Towards the end, as Zoran played the ‘I am Light’ song, I was feeling so much joy that I had tears in my eyes, and it felt like I was having a dance party in that waterfall space with Mohanji and a Shiv Ling ( I know right! haha…). I was amazed at the intensity of joy experienced, and it deeply resonated with the experience of the other participant as she described it. And the overwhelming love and feeling of being held and protected like a little child was just an awesome feeling. 

At the end of the session, Alpa had narrated the presence of a bright background light that was visible on Zoran’s screen sometime in between the session. She had graciously decided to capture a photograph that was shown to the rest of the participants too. This had tears in my eyes at the sheer magnitude of his grace and all the blessings he showers on us unconditionally. I am enamoured by this love and care of a Parent that attends to a child’s need even when she doesn’t say it. 

This, for me, is a reaffirmation of his famous words “I am with you. Always,” in Harry Potter style! This experience and even writing about it has been nothing short of bliss. I express deep gratitude for this opportunity to share it with everyone. 

By Sankaranarayanan Meetna, India

Today (23.6.2021), during the 41 days’ BoS (Bliss of Silence) Meditation, I had an abundant grace from Mohanji, enjoying some very interesting experiences which I would like to share with you all.

Shapes came from shapelessness. Life happened from life-filled consciousness. Duration is the measuring tape of the mind. Mind-less state is a timeless state. All realities are projections of the mind and hence they change with time, space, attention and perception. It becomes truth when the mind is removed.

Mohanji on Truth as it is

As usual, before the start of the session, there was an open discussion and thereafter an explanation on Mohanji’s quote on, “Truth as it is”. I could not understand much about the various points discussed like time, space, measuring tape, shapelessness, mindlessness etc. Maybe due to my lack of proficiency/fluency in English, I preferred to keep quiet.

During the meditation, the way as guided by Mohanji, I imagined the face of my Master (Mohanji) in my heart centre and tried to connect with him. Slowly I could see Mohanji’s body growing and expanding, from the normal size to so big and spreading everywhere. I experienced a state of beautiful stillness at this point. Suddenly I felt my body had started moving forward at an abnormal speed and entered into Mohanji’s omnipresent shape and merged with him.  

My conscious mind was still partially active. Thus I could sense it sending a high alert signal. Without having a second thought, I tightly caught hold of Mohanji’s hand. My body kept moving forward, holding Mohanji’s hand. The movement was so quick, and then my body parts started to shred off like lightweight feathers. Finally, I saw myself completely shapeless and formless.

My formless self, while engulfed in Mohanji’s omnipresent shape, was still struggling to move forward. After a while, I could see Mohanji was nearing towards a divine bright light. I am sure and fully believe that it could be nothing but the SOURCE.

This experience gave me a chance to understand concepts like Time and Space were totally irrelevant for Mohanji in reaching out towards the Source as both these Divine Consciousness are one and the same and merged together and formed the Omnipresent and the Omnipotent.

Likewise, when the starting point and the destination happens to be the same, words like Time and Space proved to be meaningless altogether. The distance, if any, between these two is for Mohanji just a fingertip length away. 

Whereas, for me, due to a lack of knowledge and misconceptions of the mind it seemed to be millions of light years away. That’s why I was forced to struggle and cross over many obstacles as I tried to move faster even inside Mohanji’s energy field and holding his hand.

All shapes are the creations of the mind. In the mindful state, it creates different shapes of its choice like an artist delivering his beautiful creations in an empty canvas using different colours. However, in a mindless state, all shapes vanish and are invisible. Thus, in that state, the word ‘Shape’ is meaningless too.

Eventually, when the Consciousness and senses returned back to my body, the mind slowly took charge of the entire ‘stage show’ once again. It resumed its marvellous creations of different shapes once again by collecting and assembling all needed minuscule particles from all around.

Finally, my actual question still remains. What is Actual Truth? Mohanji will surely pull me out of this thick darkness forever. My ears are earnestly waiting for his loving voice “Tatasthu”.

Transformations through group meditations – Part 2

By Malaysia Meditation Group

Intense 41 days Spiritual Practise – The Power of Purity Meditation        

The idea to organise an intense global sadhana for 41 days was conceived in a dream of one of our Mohanji Acharyas. In the dream, Mohanji had informed her to organise the sadhana. It was complete with instructions on how to do it, to the extent of what is to be written. He said that when the Power of Purity Meditation is practised every day for 41 days in a group, a powerful golden grid is created around the Universe, which helps us flow into space to connect to the loving and healing energies instantly.

It took her a while to plan and also to find the resources to run this program. With the blessings of Mohanji, after communication with teams globally, the event was launched on 4 June 2020 and ended after 41 days on 14 July 2020.

Here is a part of the diary of the journey by the Malaysia group!

4 June – Day 1

The energy was very intense, even during the breathing exercise. I felt a tingling sensation in my head area, and it spread throughout my body. It was then that I saw Mohanji, who had come to grace the mediation with his presence.

During the meditation, my body felt so hot, as if it was on fire. I could feel the heat in my breath, and my eyes were burning. My head was aching so much. It felt like someone had stuck a dagger in my head, and I could hardly think. 

During the day, somehow, I was guided to take Shirdi Baba’s vibuthi. I mixed it with some water and drank it. But then my head still felt heavy, and I could not keep my eyes open. I thought I would just lie down but fell asleep for 3 hours. I woke up feeling very refreshed. I had not slept this well in such a long time.

5 June – Day 2

The day started with some technical issues. I was wondering why no one had come on board for the meditation with only five minutes to the start. “Was my facilitation that bad, that no one came back?” This was the thought that played in my mind, hahaha! A quick message to the group revealed that they were already in the waiting room, and they informed me that it showed I was in another meeting.

I just froze for a while, not knowing what to do, and I was guided to exit the meeting and restart again. Yay! All were still there in the waiting room. Although feeling a little flustered, I calmed down very quickly and just focused on what I had to do. The energy was again very intense. Midway through the meditation, I saw that many masters in golden light had graced us with their presence. I could not see who all of them were, but I had a glimpse of Lord Dattatreya and Avadhoota Nadananda! It was like the whole Guru Parampara had arrived. Shirdi Baba appeared in a dazzling, bright golden light. He held out his hands, and rays of golden light flowed from his hands onto all of us, showering us with blessings.

7 June – Day 4

We were all soaking in the guidance of Mohanji’s voice when my PC suddenly shut down. It was so sudden that my thoughts were suspended in mid-air.

Somehow I was quickly guided to reboot my PC. Surprisingly I was very calm. I waited for the PC to reboot and restarted the meeting again. All this happened within a few minutes. I restarted the meeting and saw that everyone was still there and some had opened their eyes. I started the meditation music, and I was guided to begin exactly at the part where Mohanji says, “When thoughts enter…..do not resist…..just watch the thoughts without participating…..see them come and go.” The words were so appropriate to help everyone settle back into the meditation.

I, too, settled in when suddenly I felt a surge of energy and felt engulfed in a brilliant and blinding golden light. I was suspended in the middle of it, and soon, my body just disappeared into the light. It was as if my body had turned into light, and I could not see myself anymore. My heart area felt so expanded. I had wanted to stay in this state forever but then duty calls. I had to facilitate and end the session. 

On checking later, some of the participants had opened their eyes but flowed back into the meditation when it restarted. One commented that Mohanji’s super-powerful voice guided us back even though we strayed away for a while. Another person had felt very distracted over the last two days, but today she had an amazing experience as she was totally lost in herself.

11 June – Day 8

Today again, I had another challenge with my computer. It decided that it wanted to update itself. Thinking that it will not take long, I decided to let the process continue. Fifteen minutes had passed, and it still had not completed.

By then, I prayed to Mohanji to speed up the process. But Mohanji had other ideas. I was guided to move everything to another location. It took some time to set up the whole thing, and I noted that I still had less than 10 minutes to start the session. Somehow during this time, I had remained calm and focused. 

At the back of my mind, I thought that the meditation would not be the same since there is a change of location. Today, a new person joined us, so I explained the whole process to her.

It took a while for me to settle into the meditation. I was also keeping an eye open for people who may be late. It does happen that people get disconnected and have to rejoin the session again.

My body was swaying gently with the energy flow. Towards the end of the meditation, I could feel myself travelling at turbo speed through this place full of people. It was so fast that all I could see were shapes of buildings and people. At the end of the path, I saw an old person with a long beard in a flowy, white gown standing at the door of a building. I zoomed past him, penetrating the building and soon felt myself being propelled into a golden like aperture. I found myself in a cave-like structure, and it was filled with golden light. Seated at the end of the cave, shining in bright golden light, was Kwan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy. She was sending out a lot of energy (Shakti) which I understood from her she was sending out to the Universe. I was so immersed in this state, and before I knew it, the meditation was ending, and I had to close the session.

What an amazing experience, so I guess it does not matter where I sit for my meditation! Jai Mohanji!

Today many others felt the intense energy, and they shared this:

  1. Thank you so much. It was a very, very intense meditation. I cried a lot, and I feel very light and relaxed. Thank you, everyone. (She just joined us today and her first time experiencing the Power of Purity Meditation)
  2. It was very intense. I felt severe pain and pressure in my chest as if there was some cleansing—otherwise a wonderful and powerful experience.
  3. I just want to share this with you. I felt some burning sensation from my stomach for a while in today’s session, and towards the end, I saw a pair of eyes just flashed for few seconds, just a glance!

15 June – Day 12

Towards the end of the meditation, Shirdi Baba once again graced our session. He tossed several handfuls of vibuthi on us. The vibuthi turned into golden particles as they descended on us. At the same time, the wispy, dark mist was seen leaving our system, floating upwards and vanishing into space above us. 

As the process took place, a giant white cloud formed at the top of the space we were all in. The cloud was swirling, and violet light was circling it. Golden light streamed down from this cloud and covered all of us. I then felt Baba touching my head. I felt so spaced out that it was so difficult to come back. 

I feel so blessed to be part of this group, as the collective energy from you brought us all to such a beautiful space. Gratitude to the masters. Jai Mohanji!

Day 40

Today is the 40th day of our intense sadhana, probably another ordinary day, I thought. Today as soon as we finished our breathing exercise and slipped into the meditation, a bright light appeared, and in the light, I could see many masters moving forward in a semi-circle. In the centre was Satya Sai Baba. The light engulfed all of us, and we were transported to this space. In this space, all of us were seated in a circle around the masters. Our bodies radiated golden light. Golden rays of light from the masters connected to each of us, and we started to move in a circular motion around the masters. The motion picked up, and we were spinning at high speed akin to test tubes in a centrifuge*. 

Mind, as usual, started thinking that this is all an imagination. But then I felt my whole body vibrating, especially in my stomach area. Tears started to flow. We were bathing in this golden light throughout the meditation. Towards the end of the meditation, I found myself in this tunnel. The walls were golden in colour and moving in a circular motion. It was in continuous movement, and I could feel the light getting brighter at the end of the tunnel. Somehow I was not allowed to proceed further into the tunnel, as the meditation came to an end, and it was time to bring awareness back to the body.

Note :

* A centrifuge is a laboratory device used to separate fluids, gas or liquid, based on density. Separation is achieved by spinning a vessel containing material at high speed; the centrifugal force pushes heavier materials to the outside of the vessel.

Bliss of Silence Meditation from 6 to 26 September 2020

16 September 2020

I was feeling very tired too. It has been almost ten years trying to run the activities for Mohanji Malaysia. Thinking to myself, I need a break, but how can I stop when there is no one else to help to facilitate sessions. Suddenly this morning, during the Bliss of Silence Meditation, when I was about to zone off, Mohanji appeared. He was wearing a white kurta and orange dhoti, the same outfit when I first met him in Singapore. Many people were trying to put some shackles on his feet, but he just walked off with the shackles. 

Perhaps he is sending the message that he is always with me from day one and nothing is ever too heavy to carry and to just keep walking.

Blossoms of Love

mohanji blue jacket

by Hanumatananda

I offer this experience sharing at the lotus feet of Mohanji, as without his grace, this experience would not have been possible. 

I had a glimpse into another dimension; a dimension where the heart centre is expanded, a dimension where different rules govern. I will try to narrate the experience as best as I can, as it is hard to describe in words such subtle realms.

On 23rd January 2021, we had an online program with breathing exercises, mantra chanting, and meditation, culminating in a Satsang with Mohanji. Around 60 people were at the meditation, and my role was to conduct the preparation exercises for the meditation led via an audio recording by Devi Mohan. The three pre-meditation exercises lasted for 15 minutes, and after that, we started the meditation Blossoms of Love. I’ve done this meditation only a couple of times before, and since I was conducting it, I’ve never had the chance to dive deeper into it. 

But this time, I could relax completely and immerse myself fully into it. Devi’s voice was so soothing and gentle, smoothly leading into a state of pure unconditional love. I felt each word she said as a healing balm on an open wound. It was so soothing. The background music was also so appropriate that each sound helped relax me even deeper.

Then came a moment where I felt a huge shift in my awareness. I felt as if my heart centre expanded throughout the universe, pulsating unconditional love for all, including myself. This was so unusual, as I tend to judge myself and others, but now these judgmental thoughts were simply not there. I was open completely for them to re-appear; I was so special that no negative thought could disturb me in this state. I was completely accepting of everything, good and bad. It did not matter what will next appear on my mental screen; it was all OK. It was a state I longed for, even without knowing. I lived in the dark, but my soul was craving for this state. All the problems I thought I had or even had, now were not problems any more. They were just passing life situations which came and will go as many other situations before them. All my fears now seemed baseless. All my worries were now met by a “So what?” There was no guilt, no urge for revenge. All my problems disappeared. 

I didn’t want to ever get out of this state. I realized this is the only state worth living for. All else is a silent death. Only with an expanded heart, life has any meaning. So, this was my realization – I live by default with a closed heart. I live like that because I feel safe like that. I reason that if I keep my heart closed, I won’t ever get hurt. Which is partially true, but then is that life at all? Yes, I was hurt before so many times. But now I felt that only hurt people hurt others. It is not anyone’s fault; there’s no one to blame. Forgive. Forget. Let go and move on.

The mind is a monkey. It has to jump in and share its opinion on this glimpse of the state of pure love. So, my next thought was – if I live like this, with a wide-open heart, the world will dry my heart into pieces easily. So, how do I protect it? How do I live with an open heart and at the same time keep it protected?

Only when the heart opens, we realize it has been closed all along. This is the irony. I have been so used to living with my heart centre closed, that I didn’t even question if something is wrong. Yes, I lived a life of silent death.

Then, we were guided by Devi’s voice to come back to the body and open the eyes. Even though I came out of the meditation, the experience was so profound that I was still feeling it. Part of the experience of that dimension stayed with me. With it, a deep yearning stayed as well for this experience to become my continuous state.

At the Satsang, I shared my experience with the group and asked Mohanji the burning question I was left with after the meditation – How do I live with an open heart and keep it protected as well?

Mohanji answered, “This is the truth – that we do have closed hearts because we live in the society. Many times, because of various experiences in society, we live with a closed heart. But please remember one thing, the one who has created us is also maintaining us. Right? The one who has created us, or our Creator, or whatever created us, also maintains us. So, you can just rest on that thought – that you are protected, you are loved, you are taken care of. If this experience has come to you, that means – there is more coming. So, be positive. Be optimistic. And share your good experiences with people. Guide them, support them, bring them up into a greater level of awareness, and you will feel the whole dimensional shift happening. 

When we see people as people outside, we see nothing. When we see people as consciousness outside us, we see everything. So, this is very simple. Please remember if you are born, you’re also living. All these years you lived on earth, you ate food, you slept, you had companionship, you had guidance, you had everything. And you still have everything. 

You will have everything in the future. So, trust that factor. We can call it God, we can call it Guru, you can call it anything you like. But, that factor has constantly been working.”

As always, Mohanji’s guidance was simple and practical. Through His grace, I had a glimpse into another dimension where unconditional love is the main currency. I shall remember to live from the heart centre and rest assured that He will keep me protected as always. 

At Your Lotus Feet, Father!
