Epitome of love

By Supreet Bedi, Canada

I want to share my experience of meeting Mohanji for the first time. I have been with Mohanji since May 2020. To give a little background information, Mohanji visited Canada in 2018 during the Prana pratishta of the Shirdi Sai Baba idol at the Datta Tapovan Ashram in Canada. I received an invitation at that time to come and join. It is said that Mohanji is the Master who finds you, rather than you finding him. However, I didn’t pay attention and lost that opportunity; I probably wasn’t ready to meet him. 

After a few twists and turns, I reached Mohanji through YouTube videos about Shirdi Sai Baba. I have been Baba’s devotee for many years. The first video that I watched was “How to Surrender to Shirdi Sai Baba” by Mohanji. Everything he said in the video got imprinted on my mind and deeply touched my heart. It felt as if I understood the true meaning of surrender for the first time. 

I watched a few more videos by Mohanji and shared one of the videos with a friend who had given me the invitation to the Prana pratishta in 2018. She told me that this is the same Mohanji about whom I told you two years back. I was taken aback as I realized that he was the Guru for me. With each passing day, the desire to meet him was increasing in intensity. 

Mohanji came in my dreams, telling me that he would come to Canada, but Covid kept on testing everyone. Finally, the good news came that Mohanji would come to Canada on the 16th of March, 2022. Now I was ready to receive my Guru. So many emotions were passing through my mind. While there was excitement and joy in meeting my Guru, there was also worry about whether I would be able to spend time with him to my heart’s content. Additionally, there was sadness that he would leave Canada within a short amount of time.

Thus, I poured my heart into a letter and placed it under his Padukas. Mohanji took care of everything so beautifully. Ultimately, the much-awaited day arrived. The night before, I couldn’t sleep in excitement. My husband and I took half of a day off from work to receive Mohanji at the airport. I want to add here that my husband has back issues and isn’t able to drive for very long. I live approximately an hour away from both the airport and the Datta Tapovan Ashram. The distance between the airport and the Ashram is also around an hour. 

Initially, the plan was to greet Mohanji at the airport and come back. Though my heart was not satisfied with that arrangement, I agreed, considering my husband’s health. An evening before Mohanji’s arrival, my thoughts went to thinking about how my birthday had just passed and how beautiful it would have been to cut my birthday cake with Mohanji holding my hand and me being his little daughter. After that, I thought, why couldn’t I celebrate it with him now! 

I spoke to my husband, and we ordered a vegan cake. Luckily, the bakery was able to prepare the cake for the next day, even at such short notice, but the truth is that when Mohanji is at play, anything can be done. Now, the bakery was in Brampton, close to the airport. We decided to pick up the cake on our way to the airport. Looking at my desperation, my husband offered to take me to the Ashram as well, despite his health issues. I was on cloud nine!

The next day, Sanjay bhaiya reached the airport early and told us that due to Covid restrictions, it would not be a good idea to come to the airport. Instead, it would be better to go to the Ashram directly. The point to be noted here is that Mohanji reduced my husband’s 3.5-hour drive to 2 hours. Now, the question was that I still needed to pick up the cake from Brampton, so I called a friend and asked her if she would be able to pick up the cake, but the bakery was far from her place, and she was already running late! 

I was in a dilemma, but out of nowhere, Manisha didi called to ask me what my plans were about coming to the Ashram. While talking to her, I realized that the bakery was just a mere 4 minutes drive from her place. On asking, she readily offered to pick up the cake. I was relieved; Mohanji was at work! After Mohanji arrived at the airport, he left for the Ashram, and so did we from our home. My younger daughter made a little drawing for Mohanji, which we forgot at home, and this made my daughter sad, so we went back to fetch the drawing. However, this caused us to get delayed. 

I desired to reach the Ashram before Mohanji did, but he had different plans. On my way to the Ashram, Alpa ji called me and said that Mohanji was tired, so we will cut the cake tomorrow rather than today, to which I agreed (probably, Mohanji was testing me). Now I got worried that if I got late, Mohanji would go for rest before I had the chance to meet him. That one hour felt like one year, and every single second took so long to pass. In my head, I was talking to Mohanji, and I asked him, “Baba (Mohanji), don’t you want to meet your daughter the way I am longing to meet you?” 

We finally reached the Aashram only to realize that Mohanji had already arrived and Mohaji’s Aarti was going on. As I saw Mohanji for the first time, Mohanji uttered, “Supreet has come! Welcome, Supreet!” I had a mask on, but somehow, Mohanji knew it was me. Here I was thinking of welcoming him, but he received me with so much love.

I couldn’t hold myself back and, like a toddler, ran to him and hugged him. My tears of joy refused to hold back. I held him for a good five minutes, and he poured immense love on me and instantly, I felt so contented as if I was longing for this contentment for many lifetimes. 

He didn’t stop here. We all went to the basement to eat dinner. Mohanji was upstairs, but he came down to meet all present there. He was standing with us and said, “You are coming for Baba’s abhishekam tomorrow.” Although that was not my plan, how could I refuse when your Guru says it with so much love.

While we were talking, Manjiri didi mentioned to Mohanji that there was a cake to cut. He said, “Bring it; we will cut.” I said, “Baba if you are tired, we can cut it tomorrow.” His answer was, “No, no. We will cut it now; cake is always welcome.” He fulfilled my inner wish. Mohanji held my hand, and we cut the cake together, just the way I wanted. I don’t have words to convey what I experienced. The joy, the bliss, it was all beyond words. 

The next morning, we reached Baba’s abhishekam around 5 a.m. I got the opportunity to touch Mohanji’s lotus feet. Yesterday, when I met him, he was a parent to me and today, he is a Guru to me. The question he asked me at that time was, “Are you happy?” I said, “Yes, Baba. Very happy.” Mohanji knows everything, and he fulfils our every wish. 

With a heart full of gratitude, I want to thank my Baba (Mohanji) for these amazing moments that I will relive all the time in my heart. Thank you, Baba. I love you so much. You are truly the epitome of love.

Many Masters or this one?

By Preethi Gopalarathnam, India

This is an important message! I heard the podcast Real vs Unreal by Mohanji and I felt I had to share my experiences and learnings. If you have not heard this, please listen to it. The link is attached at the end of the blog.

I have known Mohanji for the last seven years and have been associated with Mohanji Foundation in various capacities. During this time I have met some very interesting people. Some people have come here, bloomed and are shining bright, polishing themselves and adding value to the world to the best of their capacity.

Some have come and done some great work and have gotten distracted because of personal, mental, and financial issues and have slowly dimmed out. Some have joined the organisation because their friend or family have joined and are connected. These people come on someone else’s belief. They believe everything and everyone and lack their personal anchor to the truth. So many times, I have seen them become disillusioned and leave either unhappy or not satisfied.

There are some, however, who join this organisation and then join multiple such organisations too. They believe in many Masters, and they usually say, “All Masters are one”, so I will learn from everywhere. It’s like taking multiple tuitions for one subject to crack the exam! You attend class after class but no time to assimilate and learn because we are busy with classes.

I have been fortunate to meet and observe all these flavours of people, and these are my observations only. I felt a strong urge to pen them down, and please read through it and take it only if it makes sense to you.

Yes, it is true that all Masters operate from one Consciousness, but the first question to ask ourselves is, are we in that oneness state to realise that? Unless we are there, it is someone else’s truth we believe in. It’s not our experience. If we go back to all the books and life history of great Masters like Yogananda and Vivekananda, we see that they respect all Masters, but they are firmly rooted in one Master and one Guru. Why?

Don’t they know that all Masters are the same? My understanding through my experience is as follows.

At some time in life, we ask for spiritual progress, we pray for guidance, and this prayer is a deep, earnest call from our soul. I can take my example. I connected to Mahavatar Babaji first. I prayed to Babaji, asking him for a true Guru whom I could relate and connect to. Then I was led to Mohanji. Now, how do you know that the Master in front of you is the right one?

Simple, your knowing comes from how sincerely you prayed for guidance and help! This is how I found my Guru. I did my own thorough analysis before I took Mohanji for my Guru, though. It was not instant realisation though there was an instant connection.

I saw for myself the state of purity that he was operating from. I observed his interactions and knew he was genuine. He practised what he preached. He was humble. He respected all Masters, but at the same time, he was a storehouse of power. I started seeing miracles in everyone else’s life and mine too. It was only then I took Mohanji as my Guru. It was logical, and it happened naturally. After taking him as my Guru, I had this confusion. What to do with Babaji now that I found Mohanji?

I see many people who are connected to Babaji, Sai Baba, Ramana Maharishi and many other great and powerful Masters. They find Mohanji, and then I watch them divided. Do they follow Mohanji or the Master who got them to Mohanji, who is powerful and not in their physical form. If the Master is in the body, you can directly go and ask him, so no confusion! I have been there in that space and suffered this confusion, so I felt I should share my experience. Mostly they pray to both and follow both, and that is what I mean by they are divided.

Initially, after I met and connected with Mohanji, I used to get these messages of people channelling Babaji etc., and I have initially gone there too, thinking the source is the same. Everyone is nice and loving, and you feel great energetically. But then we can’t follow everyone and every teaching, right? If we get two contradictory practices, what to do?

I would like to share my experience here. On one occasion at a friend’s place, I had the experience where Lahari Mahasaya and Sai Baba both appeared in the picture of Mohanji that I was holding. I was telling her that I feel sad about why Babaji had to send me to another Master and why he couldn’t come directly and speak to me as he does to all the other people we read in books. It was at this moment that I looked down at the picture I was holding of Mohanji.

It was unmistakable; both these Masters appeared in Mohanji’s eyeballs, each on both eyes. It was unmistakable! I was trembling and shaking, in tears because from inside came a realisation, showing me that all Masters exist, embody and speak through this one Master now. While my question to her was naive, it had purity, so the Guru answered it for me.

We need to remember something; we asked sincerely for guidance from a Master who has left their body or God. If we were in the state where they could communicate with subtlety and directly with us, they would have done it, right?

The fact that they sent you to another living Master proves the authenticity of the Master and your need for this particular Master and their sign of approval for you to move forward with him or her.

It doesn’t mean we are leaving our God or older Master; it means they will start speaking through this living Master, so we understand. Then, in this case, I personally feel the search has to end there. It is this Master in front of you who they will speak through if they want to from now on. Isn’t that why they sent you here in the first place! If you are still in doubt (the mind I tell you!), surrender this to your original Master and say, I did this as your guidance now you take care. Mohanji has said several times the story of a man who took a buffalo to be his Master, and he attained the highest. The sincerity and faith of you, the seeker, is all that matters here.

This experience at a friend’s house was a surreal experience for me, and I know it was true because it transformed me completely. My search for Gurus and people connected and channelling Masters stopped there. It happened naturally and automatically.

I would also like to share another observation. My deepest transformations started happening with Mohanji after this. It has been a rapid journey after that. It took me a while to understand that the connection became pure, and all distractions and loopholes for doubts were eliminated so that the Master could deliver. I could be receptive only after that incident. I still have a long way to go, but that’s surrendered at his feet now. It’s his job; mine is to hang in there however difficult the ride turns out to be!

Oneness of Masters

By Sunita Madan, India

It’s December, the season that spreads good cheer and love. It is Christmas time to be precise. It’s always during Christmas and more so during Easter that I’m enveloped by mixed emotions. Most of the time, it is filled with Christ Consciousness.

Against all odds, I survived nearly two or more decades of my deep connection with Jesus and our Lady, the divine Mother Mary. The Hail Marys were always at the top of my tongue, and there was never a day without the Lord’s Prayer. “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name…”

The regular Novenas; attending mass; sitting in the Chapel for hours. Visiting the Jesuit priests, the Carmelite nuns or another particular order of nuns called the Daughters of Saint Paul. Visits to the Church for midnight mass, or reading the New Testament psalm 92, a large part of my life was centred on the great Master, Jesus. 

Born in a manger under the star of Bethlehem but brutally crucified on the cross with a crown of thorns which made his head bleed, nails dug into his physical body and hung on the cross. A great Master, who was whipped and forced to walk up the hill, bearing the cross for all of us.

As celebrations for Christmas begin, I think, love, and praise the loving Christ more and more. Easter is so different. Despite the resurrection of Christ, it is always a period of mourning for me. I could never accept the torture that humanity inflicted on my dear Jesus. How could they? So much pain, so much suffering for someone who was a saviour.

The hymns sung during Easter would pierce the very core of my being, especially when they sing, “They hung him on the cross, they whipped him up the hill, the blood came streaming down.” So the whole month of Lent would be me in deep Christ Consciousness, but I was not a Christian.

I was reminded so, time and again by many near and dear ones. But the connection was too strong to snap it. Perhaps it was the environment or the people who were in my life at that point of time which allowed this beautiful journey with Jesus. They were beautiful people.

I rebelled too as I took my children who were four years and two years to our Lady of Velankanni (a title given to the Blessed Virgin Mary), in South India. An arduous journey, but my intention was very strong, and nothing could keep me back.

I narrate this, as all this leads to a beautiful revelation which I wish to share with all you beautiful people. My roots were in Sikhism, and I was married to a Hindu Arya Samaji. All journeys, all paths, and their philosophical significance are beautiful. I imbibed all that I could and with Sai Baba’s saying, Sabka Malik Ek (God is One) in my heart. The glorious Sai came in my life too. However, the church bells, the carol singing, the nativity plays and decor, the minstrel evenings, always take me back to my world with Jesus.

It was in 2015 that I got connected with Mohanji. Though not having met him physically, the connection was very strong. The first-morning ritual was the reading of the posts. One thing led to another, and the connection grew stronger and stronger, so much so that I would dream of him many a time. I still had not met him personally. It was one such dream during my afternoon siesta, which brought about a transformation, deeper connection and changed my life forever in a big way.

Once again, it was close to Easter when I had this dream. I was, as I mentioned earlier that I would be in a state of mourning, feeling the pain, the suffering that Jesus went through. It was late afternoon, and in my dream, I see a great Crucifix in my room with Jesus hanging on it. I weep in my sleep in silence so as not to disturb Jesus. I quickly wanted to touch his feet and hold them; I wanted to extend my love to him.

I witnessed all this as I saw myself leaving my body and crawling on all fours to reach Jesus. I reached him and held his feet gently, looking up at him. He was dressed in a long white gown. I looked at him with deep love and reverence. His beautiful curly hair that covered his face moved, and my Jesus looked down at me and smiled.

IT WAS MOHANJI. I was shocked and transfixed. I said, “Mohanji, you are Jesus!” He said, “Yes, I’m Jesus, your Jesus,” and he smiled lovingly. I held onto his legs, and I wept inconsolably. My Mohanji. My Jesus. There is no difference. It’s a oneness. A great revelation for me. Such a beautiful revelation. I woke up, and the amazing realization dawned on me. I felt so complete. This beautiful feeling stayed with me.

Of course, during one of Deviji’s sessions recently where she asked us to visualize our spiritual Master, it was Jesus who appeared for me, and we both walked hand in hand up the mountain. I clearly remember the era, the people, the surroundings, and the attire. Perhaps I was there during that time else it wouldn’t be so real. Mohanji was also there ahead of us and we (Jesus and I) walked along with him.

So much food for thought, but my belief system was laid to rest. I found my Jesus. My spiritual Master. My All!

Freedom from patterns

By Trent Leighton, Canada

I first encountered Mohanji roughly two years ago through a video on the Sai Baba Speaks YouTube channel. Initially, I was struck by the immediacy and power of his divine transmission but also extremely suspicious that he was intent on poaching devotees of Sai like myself from our Guru. As I began to dig deeper into the life and teachings of Mohanji, these doubts and misgivings quickly evaporated. First of all, it was clear to me that Mohanji was, in fact, deepening and authenticating my connection to Baba, not competing against him. Secondly, he was providing an open invitation for me to address long-overdue issues in my life through a practical, real-world spiritually, problems and blind-spots that I had been ignoring for decades by hiding behind a false persona of devotion and second-hand self-realization.

Having been involved with a number of teachings, traditions and spiritual communities since my teens, I learned early on the art of the spiritual bypass, that is selfishly using the Guru as a means of escaping life demands. In a matter of months, Mohanji completely put the breaks on these deeply entrenched patterns by instilling what I can best describe as an unconditional and loving motherly demand to use his grace to address matters in my life head-on, with firm conviction and faith. At the top of this list was my drug and alcohol abuse that has exacted a huge toll in my life for the past 25 years.

I had become an expert in manipulating books, meditations and teachers to hide this reality, the fact that Mohanji not only pointed out but did not let me use his realization to perpetuate my addiction. Every time I attempted to convince myself that getting high would accentuate his meditations, Mohanji would slam the door shut, literally and viscerally. I have never experienced anything like it in my life; the absolute full stop that his watchful eye has provided every time an impulse or urge to use drugs arises.

This reality culminated with the Kriya training in which Mohanji initiated a series of deep considerations in my life that continue to this day. One afternoon shortly after the training, a clear and distinct voice spoke the following “Have you ever stopped to consider, Trent, that going to treatment for your addiction is the most spiritual decision you can make for yourself right now?” My immediate response was no, I had never entertained such a possibility and in fact, had always viewed substance abuse treatment for those with much more serious addictions that my own.

The most amazing blessing and a testimony to Mohanji is that going to treatment actually happened. He provided me with an opportunity to apply spiritual solutions to a very real problem on September 3rd of this year, where I entered an intensive program for 48 days that has absolutely transformed my life. In the process of confronting years of pain, mental illness, denial and self-indulgence, I learned that ‘sobriety’ is much more than not using drugs but rather, is about actively embodying the love and selflessness the Master freely provides on a moment to moment basis, regardless of what life presents.

The gratitude and joy I feel from Mohanji are impossible to put into words. He has unequivocally fulfilled his promise to watch over his devotee’s every need while blessing me with the realization that the relationship with an authentic Master is reciprocal in nature requiring me to not only receive but to live the teaching by continually giving back.

My tryst with destiny – connecting to Mohanji’s consciousness

By Ananth Nalabanda, UK

Beginning…

I was guided by the Universe to chant the Aditya Hridayam (a powerful hymn dedicated to the Sun God) daily whilst studying at the ashram of Sri Sathya Sai Baba. After chanting Aditya Hridayam daily in the morning for two years, I had a vision of Sathya Sai Baba prophesying meeting my Guru in this lifetime. He showed a vision of a sage with a long white beard! I had no clue who this powerful Master was.

Fast-forward 30 years, I travelled to Prasanthi Nilayam in January 2020 and had one of my best energy experiences at the samadhi of Sri Sathya Sai Baba. I returned to London and was guided to include Gayatri Mantra sadhana along with my daily Aditya Hridayam chanting. 

Two months into my sadhana, the Coronavirus pandemic peaked in the world. I was scared initially being in the front-line, but as my sadhana continued, I felt energised with my practice. One night, I heard a voice saying ‘Akkalkot Maharaj’ in my dream state. I started exploring about Akkalkot Maharaj, which led me to Mohanji. I felt all holy Masters were working in unison. 

By divine grace, I came across Mohanji’s divine mission, and there was no looking back.

Humbling experience….

I read about the Mai-Tri Method and was fascinated about it and applied to be trained in the Method. Even though I am a trained medical doctor, I always felt an inner calling to offer holistic medicine to my patients. This had taken me on the journey of training myself with different energy healing practices such as Reiki, Angelic Reiki, etc.

I received an email from the Mai-Tri Method team rejecting my application for the Mai-Tri Method training. I offered my sincere gratitude to the team as they kick started my transformation process. It was a truly humbling experience. I read more about the Mai-Tri Method and how it involves connecting to Mohanji’s consciousness. I got in touch with the Mohanji UK team and what happened next is beyond my wildest imagination…it was as if some unknown force was guiding me.

I was kindly included in the Mohanji UK group by Vijay and the first thing posted in the group was about the pilot on ‘Invest in Awareness’ programme conducted by Nimika, Olivera and Bilajana. During my participation in the programme, I was informed by NellyAnne about the Early Birds Club. I started being part of the early morning meditations and service activities after getting in touch with Jay and Rashila. 

The more I got involved in the early morning meditations, the more I started experiencing a deep connection to Mohanji. I started doing his meditations, and an intense desire to read about Mohanji’s teachings led me to Subhasree. Vijay and Subhasree live very close to where I live, and it was no coincidence that within one month of knowing Mohanji, I was deep into reading about him from the books I received.

Agony….

An intense desire to meet Mohanji in person started burning me from the inside. It was further compounded by the fact that Mohanji was physically present just a few minutes from my place, a year ago. 

It reached its peak, and I slept one night crying, not being able to control myself. The next morning, I see a message on Facebook about an opportunity to meet Mohanji virtually on August 15th, 2020. 

I was initially hesitant to submit a video/audio to the Podcast team to facilitate this virtual meeting, but Mohanji had his own way of encouraging me. One evening, whilst I was chanting the Mohanji’s Gayatri mantra and thinking whether to submit my audio clip about the podcast – Mohanji’s book, which was on the shelf, literally flew and fell down near me! 

I was a little shaken. It was as if Mohanji was saying, you wanted to see me, and now when the opportunity arises, you are shying away!!! After this experience, I submitted my testimonial to the podcast team and had my first virtual darshan of Mohanji on August 15th, 2020.

Mai-Tri session 23/08/2020 

I came across a group Mai-Tri session to be conducted by Subhasree on August 23rd and enrolled myself for it. I also came to know that this day was sacred to Mohanji’s family. 

August 23rd 2020, 3.45 PM – 4 PM. This was one of the most significant days of my life. What I experienced during this Mai-Tri session was beyond my imagination. I share it with the deepest gratitude to Mohanji.

Subhasree asked the participants to have a clear intention for the session, and I had two:

  1. I have an energy block on the right side of the body due to jump-starting my Kundalini energy through improper tantric practices, and I sincerely repented following it. I prayed to Mohanji to forgive me and, if possible, help me with unblocking of the energy on my right.
  2. I prayed sincerely, that even if he is unable to forgive me, he should help me connect to his consciousness.

Life-changing moment…

Mid-way through the session, I suddenly felt a movement of energy in my right lower limb, followed by the right upper limb. Tears started flowing from my eyes as I felt Mohanji’s presence and his mercy. As I started feeling his presence in front of me, Subhasree started chanting the following verse:

Om Shata Sahasra Suryaaya Vidmahe

Avadhootaaya Dheemahi

Tanno Mohan: Prachodayaat

I understand the essence of Mohanji as the brightness of more than a hundred thousand suns together. I recognise this brightness as highly auspicious. May this being called Mohanji enlighten me (Guru Leela, Book 2, Mohanji Foundation)

Then the moment which I will never forget in my life happened. I saw Mohanji, right in front of me, growing bigger and bigger and taking a huge form; it was His Vishwaroopa!!! I was suddenly reminded of this sloka from the Bhagavad Gita, which is so close to my heart.

śhrī-bhagavān uvācha

su-durdarśham idaṁ rūpaṁ dṛiṣhṭavān asi yan mama

 devā apy asya rūpasya nityaṁ darśhana-kāṅkṣhiṇaḥ

 nāhaṁ vedair na tapasā na dānena na chejyayā

 śhakya evaṁ-vidho draṣhṭuṁ dṛiṣhṭavān asi māṁ yathā

The Supreme Lord said: This form of mine that you are seeing is exceedingly difficult to behold. Even the celestial gods are eager to see it. Neither by the study of the Vedas, nor by penance, charity, or fire sacrifices, can I be seen as you have seen me. BG 11.52-53 https://www.holy-bhagavad-gita.org/chapter/11/verse/52-53

I was knocked off for 1-2 minutes after experiencing this divine form of Mohanji. Thousands of images and thoughts started flooding me. The image which Sri Sathya Sai Baba showed me 30 years ago flashed before me. He is the one!!! A deep understanding of the vision I had 30 years ago and the emotional roller-coaster of my life all came to a standstill. 

The wait was over. I recognised the divine Master!

As I write this in all humility, I feel foolish to have limited such a magnificent, unparalleled and universal consciousness of Mohanji to his physical frame. He is beyond constraints of time and space! He is not in a faraway place, but in a place within our reach, our own heart where our soul resides. I am grateful to Mohanji for this incredible experience and offer my sincere gratitude to Subhasree for facilitating this.

The grace of a living Master

shiva

By Tanjila Akhter, Bangladesh

Namaste, I am 23 years old and I have a small beautiful family with my husband and a son who is only two years old. I have completed my Master’s degree in Nutrition and Food Science from Dhaka University. I would love to share my experiences and journey towards Mohanji and how his teachings helped me and transformed my life completely; and how my life became so open from any small and limited notions.

Even though I am from a Muslim background, now I have the same respect for all religions because I realise that even though our rituals are different, our destination is the same. We came from one Source and we will return to that same Source, and this actualization makes me feel that life is full of blessings and grace.

expereince

My spiritual journey started with my first Guru, Sufi Saint Baba Jahangir. But it was just a ritual at that time. Even though Baba’s teachings are very powerful, I found it very complicated to understand the deepest meanings of his core messages with my limited capacity and knowledge about spiritualism. My lack of insight was such that I was not able to understand Baba’s teachings about liberation, detachment, unconditional love, no expectations, silence, etc.

On the day (25th April), when Baba Jahangir took Maha Samadhi, I realized something very unique as if from the very core of my being a confirmation that Baba does not leave us, he is always with us and I felt his presence very strongly that day. Even though I felt his strong presence inside my heart, yet another thought arose in my mind about who would teach us practically when Baba is no more in his body! But I surrendered all my thoughts to Baba with the conviction that time will surely be the answer. A few days later, my husband and I came to know about Lisa who is also a devotee of Baba Jahangir and a Mohanji Acharya (even though at that time I had no clue who Mohanji was).

We created a WhatsApp group with the intention that we could have some discussions about spiritualism. We were 9 people at first. Later on, a few more people joined us. We started our satsang through video call and Lisa started talking to us about various aspects of life and truth. We continued for almost two months, attending the satsang every single day. Sometimes we discussed all night long, tirelessly. All of us started enjoying the satsangs as if a new zone had opened up for us.

Satsang with Mohanji

Now, this was entirely new to me and I was very surprised just to listen to all these various types of topics which were kind of food for my thoughts. My feelings were such that I had been hungry for this food for long periods of time and searching for this kind of clear explanations and insights which were extremely meaningful to me, and I felt like everything made perfect sense to me now. Later on, we came to know that these were Mohanji’s core teachings, which is the same as Baba Jahagir’s teachings, but Mohanji’s teachings were really easy to understand not only theoretically, but we were also inspired to do things practically.

For the first time ever, I realized each life is valuable in this world and no beings were born to satisfy my selfish desire for food, clothing, etc. From that day, I took the decision to become a vegetarian. Before that, beef was one of my most favourite foods.

One month later, I felt that Lisa should come to my house. I invited her and she immediately agreed, (I was completely unaware what great blessings were waiting for us) and on 27th May, Lisa came to our home and straightway from the next day (28th May) my husband, I and the other people who were present there became completely vegetarian without any effort.

I was totally surprised to see my transformation.  This would never have been possible if we had not known about Mohanji’s teachings through Lisa. For the first time, I could feel how cruel and insensitive we had been! Just for the taste of our tongue, we killed so many lives and this is a huge crime we are performing through our wrong traditional pedagogy. After becoming a vegetarian, my spiritual journey started to improve immediately.

lifestyle

My awareness became sharper than before. I even started realizing the main goal of my existence which I was completely unaware of before. I realize that liberation is my only goal, and I am ready to do anything to achieve this goal. I also realize that all my roles in this lifetime have to be played without any attachments which were never clear to me before. After Mohanji’s teachings, I have started practicing all these things deliberately, and with patience. I never knew that patience could be that hard for these practices, but I am so grateful that I am growing slowly but steadily.

Also, I have learned how powerful gratitude could be! Lisa recommended us to practice the Power of Purity (PoP) meditation every day and just listening to Mohanji’s voice made my mind so peaceful. Now PoP guided meditation has become my regular practice.

Also, I realized the mind factor, and how our own mind can be the highest destructive force of our lives, and with conviction and regular practice, we can even change the blueprint of our mind. In that absolute sense, we all have the power to destroy our comfort zones and make our lives positive and worthwhile by living and sharing unconditionally, which is an act of tremendous courage that we all have. We just need the right guide to give us directions and we are so lucky that in this life we found Mohanji. The absolute Truth in our life is our living Master Mohanji.

I am unable to explain my gratitude to Mohanji, but I am sure he knows my heart which is beating now by his name, all day and night. His name has become my maha-mantra (MOHANJI). With his holy name, one can participate in any aspect of life. This is my conviction. During the first few weeks, my mind was playing a game with me – what if I am doing wrong by trusting Lisa or accepting Mohanji as my living Master? I was a bit confused but Masters knows our minds more than us.

gratitude

One day Baba Jahangir appeared in my dream and gave me confirmation that Mohanji is my present Guru whom I came to know through Lisa. When I initially saw Mohanji’s picture, my first thought was he is none other than Moula Ali, who is our Imam riding a horse in a battle against all negative energies. And I knew that my journey had started with my Guru Mohanji.

On the 4th of June, Lisa inaugurated the altar of Guru Mandala in my house. What a wonderful experience we all had that day. Everyone felt Mohanji’s strong presence and we were all amazed at how Mohanji is giving us so many experiences without even asking. We could offer only love and we did that from our hearts, but Mohanji gave us everything, that love which we never felt in our entire life, even from our parents. On the same day, I saw Mohanji’s smiling face standing in front of my eyes and watching me always.

When we finished the aarati and sat down for the meditation, I felt that Mohanji was looking at me and smiling. Then two glorious faces appeared in front of me and both of them were looking at me with their bright eyes, with lots of light coming from them. A few days later when I sat for meditation, I felt that I was sitting inside Mahavatar Babaji‘s body and his body was as big as Kailash. After inaugurating the altar, I witnessed many experiences. Many times Mohanji gave me experiences through dreams.

During the time Lisa stayed at our house, for the first time, we visited many temples such as the Kali temple, Shiva temple, Loknath Baba’s temple, ashrams, etc. and had various types of experiences.

We also had the opportunity to meet a living Avadhoota, and this was later confirmed by Mohanji (we didn’t know the meaning of an Avadhoota until Lisa explained to us later on). Our experiences with Ma Avadhoota were so sacred. She knows everything about Mohanji, and told us, “Mohanji is Mahadev.” She is blind but she saw Mohanji through her third eye and explained how Mohanji looks like, and she prayed to Mohanji if she could see him in her lifetime.

Now, only Mohanji knows if he would come to us or not, but we keep calling him from our hearts. I want to share about my two-year-old child who has started chanting the Maha Mrithyunjaya mantra and keeps calling Jai Mohanji and Sai Baba all the time. We are really amazed to see how he could do that continuously. Almost every day, my two-year-old child goes to the altar and rings the bell, says Jai Mohanji and kisses him, bows down like a grown-up man, as if he knows everything that he needs to do, and this is truly beyond anything anyone can even assimilate.

It was beyond my imagination that I could have all these experiences and to have found my living Master Mohanji like this. I often wonder what I have done to have all this grace and blessings within this sort period of time. I have also learned never to take anything for granted.

I surrender everything at Mohanji’s holy feet as he is my protector, he will protect me and my family till my end. With this prayer I started my journey, and I will pray until my end. I would like to dedicate the first Guru mantra that I memorized, to Mohanji.

Guru Brahma Guru Vishnu, Guru Devo Maheshwaraha

Fond Memories of Vasudevan Swami

mohanjichronicles-author-Rajesh Kamath Mohanji Acharya

By Rajesh Kamath

Four years back to this day (July 12th 2020), Vasudevan Swami, a disciple of Bhagavan Nityananda and a powerful Master of the Nath tradition, took samadhi (a saint’s conscious exit from the body) in Ganeshpuri. Mohanji had the greatest respects for this spiritual powerhouse who hid within a bent, frail, old and very ordinary looking frame. One could easily dismiss him for a weak, old man who wouldn’t merit a second glance. His unassuming nature, innocence and purity, coupled with an unshakeable faith in his Master, Bhagavan Nityananda, were the hallmarks of his personality. Mohanji considered him a perfect epitome of devotion. He was the priest of the Nath Mandir at Vajreshwari, where Macchindranath and Gorakshanath, the leading lights of the Nav Nath Tradition did intense penance and were blessed by the Goddess to write the book, the Nath Rahasya (The Secrets of the Naths). This temple has the padukas (divine imprints of the feet) of Macchindranath and Gorakshanath.

Nath tradicija

The previous priest in the temple was designated to be a Shankaracharya (one of the four heads for each of the four directions, who are highly revered leaders of Hinduism). When he came to visit Bhagavan Nityananda, Bhagavan is said to have asked him to choose between fame or liberation. When he decided liberation, Bhagavan Nityananda asked him to leave everything and become a priest of this tiny temple that is right in front of the Vajreshwari temple. The place is extremely powerful, and Swamiji used to say that none can enter this place by chance. It is guarded by unseen divine beings who keep the causal visitors away. Only the fortunate few who have the permission of Bhagavan Nityananda and the Nav Nath greats are allowed by the Divine. It is genuinely so because even the flower sellers right outside the gates are unaware of the spiritual potency of this place. There are hardly any visitors in this temple even though it is literally a stone’s throw from the Vajreshwari temple which sees a steady throng of religious seekers. The priest of such a temple can hardly be an ordinary person, and one can understand the level of purity and subtlety that would be expected of one who is fortunate to bear that mantle.

Interestingly, it was just yesterday that Mohanji was reminiscing about Vasudevan Swami during a discussion on devotion.  Mohanji used the example of Vasudevan Swami’s extraordinarily simple prayers to highlight the power of pure love. If Swamiji missed Lord Krishna, he would say, “Lord Krishna, I have grown old and feeble, and my eyesight fails me. How will I ever get your darshan (divine vision) now?” At these words, Lord Krishna would appear before Swamiji, stay with him for as long as Swamiji desired and leave an imprint of the form he appeared in, on the wall of the temple. Once when Mohanji visited him, he told Mohanji, “I am so happy today. Hanumanji came here today and meditated here while I was doing aarati. I saw someone come and sit behind me while doing aarati. After the aarati, I looked behind and saw Hanumanji sitting quietly and meditating. He just left.” One could see a greasy outline on the wall as if a giant person with oil all over his body had sat down with his back touching the wall. The entire wall was full of such impressions from the forms of the Divine Mother, avatars of Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva, the Naga Devatas (the deities from the highly evolved realm of Naga Loka who take the form of snakes on earth), and so on. Mohanji mentioned that each imprint was like a prana pratistha (an infusion of the living energy of the deity into an idol of a temple). Imagine the power of the place which had the imprint of every conceivable deity in that place. Mohanji further added that his call was so powerful and filled with supreme love and devotion that the Lord had no option but to show up.

Once when Mohanji was in Mumbai, he suddenly told us in the morning that he would like to visit Ganeshpuri, the place forever hallowed by Bhagavan Nityananda. Though unplanned, we always relished a visit to Ganeshpuri to be with Mohanji in the divine presence of Bhagavan Nityananda. Usually, before going to the main temple in Ganeshpuri, Mohanji visited Vasudevan Swami first at the Nath mandir. Mohanji often said that he preferred the peace in Swamiji’s temple to the milling crowds in the samadhi temple of Bhagavan Nityananda in Ganeshpuri. Swamiji loved Mohanji immensely. He was ecstatic to see Mohanji and welcomed him with a lot of love. As we sat down to talk to him, Swamiji told Mohanji that he just remembered Mohanji in the morning. He thought that it would be nice to meet Mohanji but then lamented that it may not be possible given Mohanji’s crazy travel schedule. He wondered that Mohanji could be anywhere in the world and was sad at the improbability of a meeting. Mohanji said, “Swamiji, your single thought was enough to make me so restless in Mumbai that I was literally dragged to Ganeshpuri to pay you a visit.” Mohanji told some of us then that the purity and love in Vasudevan Swami’s thoughts make them commands that the universe must obey. He told us many times that Swamiji does not request the deities. He commands them to make the outcome happen.

He would always give Mohanji the holy ash that was the residue of the incense sticks that he used during his daily prayers to Bhagavan Nityananda. Mohanji revered and respected this offering from Vasudevan Swami and gave it to many of his close followers for protection or as a solution to their situations and problems. Once when I visited him, Swamiji gave me some ash with this disclaimer, “This ash is made holy by this place and by my Guru, Bhagavan Nityananda. If you consider it powerful, it can heal anything. It has healed incurable diseases and fulfilled the desires of all who believed in its power and had faith in my Guru. If you don’t believe, then it is just useless ash. Use it as you will.” He attributed all the powers and the source of the miracles to his Guru, Bhagavan Nityananda. He had no ownership. His insignificance was his strength. Since he needed nothing other than his Guru, he had all his Guru’s powers at his disposal. In that way, I saw in him a reflection of Mohanji.

He once said, “Chant with every fibre of your being. Your very being should resonate with the love of the Lord. When you sing your devotions to the Lord, do it with the power that will bring the Lord before you. Sing shamelessly and loud. Never be ashamed of your devotion to the Lord. Let the whole neighbourhood hear your song. Every breath must sing the name of the Lord all the time. That is the key to being one with the Lord. Always remember that.” I asked him how one can ensure the name of the Lord with every breath. He said that you need to work hard to reach that state. Unfortunately, no shortcuts there. Whenever we visited, he would lovingly enquire about Mohanji and his location, schedule and activities. He would tell us that he prayed for Mohanji’s well being every day without fail.

Once when Mohanji came to visit him, he excitedly opened the cupboard and took out many nice, expensive dhotis and shawls and gave them to Mohanji. Mohanji objected and requested Swamiji, “You are wearing tattered and torn clothes while you have these nice clothes in the cupboard. I can’t accept your gift. Instead, I would be delighted if you wore them instead.” He persisted several times, but Mohanji declined and repeated his earlier request. Finally, Swamiji became silent, walked away and sat in the corner of the temple with a sad, sulking face. Mohanji went up to him and asked him the reason for his sadness. He did not reply. Finally, Mohanji asked him, “What will make you happy?” Swamiji said ruefully, “Only if you accept the clothes I wanted to give you.” Mohanji humbly told Swamiji that he would like to see Swamiji happy and would gladly accept whatever he gave him. Swamiji immediately got up with childlike joy and gave the entire bundle of clothes to Mohanji. Once Swamiji had been felicitated by the trust, who gave him a few clothes and a shawl. He wondered what to do with them and connected mentally to Bhagavan Nityananda seeking an answer. Bhagavan Nityananda responded, “Give them to Mohanji.” Swamiji was perplexed thinking, “How will I locate Mohanji? He could be anywhere in the world.” This time again, Mohanji was lovingly “dragged” the same day from a neighbouring city to being in Swamiji’s overpowering and loving presence. Mohanji asked Swamiji why he chose to wear tattered clothes when he had the opportunity to wear better clothes. Swamiji said, “If I wear nice clothes, people will think I am rich and will bother me. Now, they take me for a poor, useless old man and leave me alone. I prefer my peace to other’s glowing opinions of my terrestrial stature.”

When we were at Ganeshpuri for a retreat, Mohanji decided to meet Vasudevan Swami, one morning towards the end of the retreat. He asked, “What’s for breakfast?” Someone said, “Dosa” (a pancake made from rice flour and ground pulses). Mohanji asked to pack some, and we left to meet Swamiji. We couldn’t find Swamiji in the temple or his living room. We then saw him hunched over the stove in the kitchen. He was thrilled to see Mohanji. He said that he would make tea and breakfast for Mohanji. Mohanji replied that he had brought him breakfast. He was overjoyed and almost moved to tears. He said, “Mohanji got me breakfast.” He then requested Mohanji to have breakfast with him. Mohanji said that he had only come for a brief visit and he wanted Swamiji to have all the breakfast. It was only for him. Swamiji reluctantly agreed. They spoke briefly, and Mohanji requested his permission to leave. For the first time, he walked Mohanji to the door of the temple and stepped outside to wave Mohanji goodbye. Normally, he would be seated on his bed or in the temple when we would leave. Before we left, he beckoned Mohanji to come near and said, “I want you to know two things. Firstly, Not a day goes by when I don’t think of you. Secondly, I want you to know that my Guru, Bhagavan Nityananda, lives with you always.” He had tears in his eyes. As we looked back to wave back to him, Mohanji said, “Take a good look at him. This is the last time we will see him in the flesh. This was his final goodbye.” In a few months, he took samadhi while Mohanji was in Croatia (this is explained in vivid detail in this blog post by Madhusudan Rajagopalan)

I feel nostalgic as well as sad as I ruminate over the fond memories of our past moments with Swamiji, and I am deeply grateful to Mohanji for allowing us to meet this epitome of devotion and humility. My most profound and humble prostrations to this gentle saint as I seek his blessings to allow us to follow his example and develop the unshakeable strength of devotion in the Guru and the self-effacing, selflessness to do every task surrendered to the Guru’s will.

Kalpataru series – Blessings manifold during Guru Purnima 2019

DeviAmmaandMandDevi-2

By Rekha Murali, India

On this joyous occasion of Guru Purnima of July 2020, I was transported back to the celebrations last year. My heart wells up in gratitude as I relive the moments of the blissful day in the presence of two great Masters. Yes indeed, blessings were showered on all those present there, by both, my Guru Mohanji and the great Siddha Devi Amma.

It all started with a sudden desire to be in Mohanji’s presence for at least one Guru Purnima. This was wish one on my checklist. Things worked out smoothly, I could rearrange my commitments and soon found myself comfortably on the way to Bangalore for a satsang that was announced with Mohanji.

Deep down, I had another wish to meet Devi Amma on this auspicious day. Chances did not seem so bright as she lived far away from the main city and my stay in the city was only for a day. Moreover, the satsang was planned on the other side of the town. But on my way to Bangalore, I got a message from a dear friend that Devi Amma would be present for the satsang with Mohanji. The second wish on my checklist was also fulfilled.

With a heart filled with gratitude, I soon found myself in a taxi on the way to the venue. As I got off at the station, the Uber app which I relied on, stopped working and I couldn’t find a single cab. A man suddenly approached me and showed me his Uber credentials and was willing to take me to the venue for a flat rate which was reasonable. I had done my homework previously. I thought I was very lucky while on my way. But soon he started asking me for extra fare and I slowly started praying to Mohanji till we reached the venue. I did not interact much with him and quickly alighted from the cab giving him the money that we had initially agreed upon. So with thanks on my lips, I went into the venue and was soon involved in the preparations for Mohanji’s arrival.

Aditya Nagpal and I were assigned the seva of manning the front desk.  Soon Mohanji arrived with his parents and Devi Mohan, and all of us assembled in the room waiting for Devi Amma. Mohanji teased Aditya a lot but did not say anything to me.  I had the opportunity in the meantime to present a bouquet of flowers to Mohanji on the request of a devotee who couldn’t be present there. Devi Amma arrived and all of us assembled once again in pure happiness and bliss at this double treat of seeing two great Masters together. They appeared as the powerful Shiva and Shakti! A moment to be cherished for lifetimes!

The satsang commenced and both great Masters answered various questions.  Aditya and I were seated at the back and my eyes were just closing and I could not understand anything of what Mohanji was speaking. I was just floating in the energy of the place and nothing entered my thick skull. Aditya then shared that it was because of the high energy in the room. At the back of the mind, I also had a sudden desire for Shaktipat from Mohanji and felt only then would this trip be complete. Wish number three on my checklist was also fulfilled as Mohanji announced that he would give Shaktipat to all those present. My heart danced in joy and I patiently awaited my turn.

I soon approached Mohanji with a racing heart as for no reason I was simply brimming with happiness. As Mohanji gave me Shaktipat, I was overjoyed and it felt as though I needed nothing more. I was grinning from ear to ear, in joy that is indescribable.  This had never happened before. It was the pure joy of just ‘being’ with no thoughts, completely empty and fully present in a moment of bliss. Usually, I would be solemn and just allow the Master to fill me up. However this time, I felt he had given me everything. After the Shaktipat, he quietly held my hands and gently asked me, “Are you happy?” These three words made me understand how he hears each word that is unspoken and fulfills the smallest of wishes that flit across in our thoughts. Till then I had not spoken to him and in reply, all that I could do was mumble a yes with tears of joy streaming down my face. His unconditional love filled up completely.

rekha gp

With his blessings, I ran into the loving embrace of Devi Amma.  She hugged me, blessed me, enquired about every family member, particularly about my son, and at the same time blessing him. My cup was full and I couldn’t have asked for more.

 

rekha2

It ended all too soon and it was time to return. My friend Radha Sreenivas and I had no transport to return to the city and there were no cabs available. We were trying our best to get a cab but somehow I was not worried.  I just assured Radha that we would ask someone to drop us off at a place where we could get cabs. Most of the people had left by then and as we were finishing our dinner, a guest whom I had not met before, joined us at the table. She (Mini Gopinath) overheard the two of us trying to book a cab and gently offered to drop us off in her car. Thank you, Mini. It turned out that she had to go to the exact same area where I was heading! Need I say more? Although he was not present there, Mohanji ensured that everyone returned safely. As he always says, “I do my job!”

On this Guru Purnima, I bow down in gratitude to this wonderful friend, Guide and Master Mohanji who has been a beacon of light leading me gently towards my destination.

Pranaams dear Mohanji with gratitude and love.

Pranaams dear Devi Amma, in whose love I melt and just merge.

A little GIANT

By Naren Shivappa

With Mohanji’s grace and blessings, Rajesh Kamath and I were with Mohanji in Mookambika for a ‘sadhana in solitude’ for 21 days, during the end of 2019.

My relationship with Mohanji was getting deeper by the day. I never understood him then, not that I can understand him now, but our bond was getting deeper with this journey. Many things unsaid and many glances unnoticed, there was magic happening within and this drew me closer to him unknowingly.

In those 21 days, one day, during our regular visit to the shrine of Mother Mookambika, Mohanji’s disciple Sri Rajendran, met us unexpectedly in the Mookambika temple. He then came to the place where we were staying. During the discussions, he mentioned two Avadhootas who stayed around Mookambika.

One was a lady saint, Amma, and the other Chandu Kutty Nair. But Sri Rajendran suggested that we meet Amma before meeting the old Avadhoota. It’s almost as if by protocol, before meeting Chandu Swami, we had to pass Amma’s test.

Both these saints stayed in opposite directions of the little town. Amma has done penance for 40 years in the forests near Chitramoola cave in Kodachadri mountain, where Shankaracharya got the darshan of Mother Mookambika. She had high regard for Chandu Swami, and with her blessings, we set out to meet the Swami. Along with us was a disciple of Amma, who escorted us to introduce us to the Swami.

mohanjichronicles - Farewell Chandu Kutty Swamy - Chandu Kutty Swamy Closeup-7

We bought some fruits and flowers on the way and reached his place in a short time. His place was fenced but there was a thick overgrowth of shrubs all around, amidst which there was a small gate made of some bamboo sticks. There was a surprise waiting for us. Mohanji, Kamath, and I, all of us heard a clear whistling sound along with a hissing sound. Mohanji immediately said, “There is an old snake that is guarding the Swami, so let’s wait outside.”

We could see a small hut about 50 feet away from the bamboo gate. There was a Chela (disciple) of Chandu Swami, who saw our escort from far and came to greet and take Mohanji inside. When we entered this small hut, we saw a man who was very tiny in stature, but after a while, we learned how big a giant he was. His demeanour was divine, his smile was so childlike and one can’t forget the cute chuckles of laughter that could give anyone goosebumps and bring a smile from within.

He was talking in Malayalam which I could hardly relate to, but I was getting a feeling that the two divine beings, both Mohanji and him were having a jolly good time.

By the Master’s grace, I was somehow able to get the gist of the conversation. Anyways, Chandu Swami suddenly mentioned about the Chitramoola cave and said that fellow (in his words “Anda Aaalu”) pointing at the back, also got darshan there. We were searching for the ‘fellow’ he mentioned and saw a picture of Adi Shankaracharya. Kamath and I were in splits as he so casually mentioned it as if they were buddies from ages ago.

I observed that Chandu Swami’s physical features were very different from the normal. Almost all the joints were twisted; all in all, he was four feet tall. He said he was 122 years old and he had met Bhagawan Nityananda. I noticed there were many lumps all over his body. I imagined the hard penance his body must have gone through in those dense jungles.

I was just watching them, Mohanji was engrossed in his conversation with Chandu Swami. After a while, he told us to come in the evening for aarati.

M5

Mohanji thought it was time, and as he got up to leave, suddenly he noticed that there were no chairs and the Swami’s chair was also almost broken. Immediately he said to us, “We should have some chairs arranged for the Swami and for the people who come to see him.”

Mohanji asked the Swami if he wanted anything in particular, for which he replied, “No, nothing.” But suddenly, he noticed a sling bag on my shoulder that I carried and said, “Get me a bag like that as somebody took mine away and never returned it.” I am not sure what happened to me, but in a flash, I said, “Swami, please take this bag itself, I don’t need it.” I immediately emptied it in a jiffy and offered it to him. The Swami smiled and accepted it, softly stroked my back lovingly as I did my pranaam. That was so heartening for me.

 

When we set out of the hut, Mohanji said something beautiful. He said, “With this gesture of yours, Naren, you never know how many lifetimes of karma would have vanished.” I understood that these elevated beings operate from a different dimension unseen by mere mortals like me, they just make it seem obvious. Coming to think of it, it was not my bag he took but my baggage of lifetimes. He took off the weight of my shoulders to make me feel light.

In the evening, we returned at 4 pm to Chandu Swami’s place for the evening aarati. As I saw him, he removed all his clothes near the back door, and with hardly any body-consciousness he just walked to the back yard for his bath. The Swami changed his loincloth and started putting ash and vermillion to his forehead and other parts of the body. He started staring at the sunset and it seemed as though he was conversing with the universe. That scene melted my heart. He came back and sat with us, but seemed restless as though he was waiting for someone. Mohanji asked if the aarati was delayed, to which he said,  “Mother Mookambika is taking time, she has not yet arrived from Chottanikara, so I am waiting.” I listened in awe. This touched my heart, the very fact that he took the effort to purify physically by bathing, adorning himself with ash, and waiting to greet the Mother Divine. So immense must be his love for her. He was eagerly waiting every moment with the same intensity. Within my mind, I said, “Look at us, we have an ‘insight timer’ to meditate, counting minutes and hours.” Anyways, let’s get back to the topic.

The Swami told Mohanji that Swami Veerabhadra guards the place when the Mother comes. After a while, we entered his temple which was a square hall with pictures of various gods and goddesses. When Kamath moved towards a corner, he asked him to sit by the side as that was the place where the Mother Divine sleeps. Swami sat for his prayers and seemed to sing something which none of us understood. He did some mudras which I thought was his way of communicating with the Mother Divine. And he started singing the aarati accompanied by the banging of two steel plates to the ground. It sounded quite weird but had an essence which pulled you; it had a rhythm that pulled your heart. The thought of how the learned and wise men pray and how this beautiful son of the Mother Divine prayed, was quite evident. For us, who witnessed the Nirmalya darshan of Mother Mookambika for 21 days in the most orthodox way every morning at 5 am in the shrine, to what we saw that evening with Chandu Swami was just worlds apart. All the puja was only between the Mother and him, nothing was done to please anyone else. It was so beautiful. It melts my heart to just relive this experience.

The next day, I went back and delivered the chairs and he was happy sitting on a new chair for once. He blessed me with some fruits and again slowly caressed and stroked my back with love. Those were the moments I can never forget.

By the grace of my Master Mohanji, I could be in the presence of such an Avadhoota. Today, I received a phone call from Mohanji who just said, “Chandu Swami has attained Mahasamadhi, that too he has chosen the day of the Gupt Navaratri.” I was taken by shock and surprise, because Chandu Swami had said, “I ask Mother when will you take me, this body is already 122 years old, but she says there is work to do, I don’t know what else is there to do.” Now I realize that he was just waiting for Mohanji before he left for his final abode.

That enchanting smile, those sweet words, the grace he carried in his actions; those moments will forever remain etched in my memory for this lifetime. My humble pranaams to this little GIANT, dear Chandu Swami. I am sure he must be now resting forever in the lap of the Mother Divine!

With all humility, this being prostrates in obeisance to this great Master, Chandu Swami!

 Always in reverence at the feet of my Master!

Farewell, Dearest Chandu Kutty Swami

mohanjichronicles-author-Rajesh Kamath Mohanji Acharya

By Rajesh Kamath

Mohanji informed us yesterday (22nd June 2020) about the news of Chandu Kutty Swami’s mahasamadhi (a saint’s conscious exit from the body). My mind flashed back to our meetings with this powerful saint from Mookambika during Mohanji’s isolation period between December 2019 to January, 2020 and then again with Mohanji, Mila, Devi and a different group in March 2020.

Except for the early morning temple visits and some visitors, Mohanji would mostly keep to himself in his room, during his isolation time. A devotee of Mother Mookambika got acquainted with Mohanji during those early morning temple visits and mentioned about two powerful saints in the vicinity. He offered to take Mohanji to visit them and to guide him to those locations. Mohanji agreed. One of the saints was Chandu Kutty Swamy, a 122 year old direct disciple of Bhagavan Nityananda, the sixth avatar of Lord Dattatreya. We were told that Swamiji had high profile followers including a leading movie star from Kerala.

The following day, we walked past the back of the temple up a winding earthy road that went steeply uphill and then plateaued. Out of breath and with sore legs, we sauntered and came close to the makeshift wooden gate (sticks of wood tied together with a rope). We heard a low whistle as we approached the gate – a constant soft but clear sound that came through the bushes close to the other side of gate.

We opened the gate which opened into an open space in the middle with unkempt trees and shrubbery on both sides of the field. There were two small houses – one to the left of the open space and the other slightly bigger one at the far end of the open space. The house at the far end was his residence. It had a makeshift entrance with a roof made of corrugated tin sheets and blue and yellow plastic hanging off the roof and draped all around. As we entered, we saw a few chairs spread around the entrance with a short, stocky but very old Swami seated on one of the plastic chairs that may have been as old as him. Beyond the chairs was a small house which had only two rooms. One of the rooms served as the kitchen and store as well as the bedroom for the Swami and the second room was for visitors.

Our guide introduced Mohanji and the group to the Swami. His name was Chandu Kutty Swami. His eyesight was poor and so was his hearing. Though he was short, his body showed signs of a powerful, muscular and athletic past. He only understood Malayalam and Mohanji later said that his Malayalam was also not very easy to understand. Our guide gave Swamiji details about Mohanji by shouting at an angle into his left ear. Eventually, Mohanji mimicked the technique as well and resorted to increasing his decibel levels and directing his voice close to Swamiji’s ears. Mohanji introduced the group to Swamiji who spoke to us warmly. However, he would get pensive during any lull in the conversation and stare outside the entrance in the distance towards the faraway mountains. Mohanji later said that he was in constant communion with the Mother and was probably going within and connecting to the Mother, during such times.

Bhagwan Nityananda

He gave us some details about himself. As a teenager, Chandu Kutty Swami met Bhagavan Nityananda at Kanhangad who told him, “Why do you stand here? Go to the forest.” Bhagavan did not elaborate further nor provide any more clarifications. With no clue about the destination, the young boy took to staying in forests and eventually landed up in the forests around Mookambika. He ceased his wandering and stayed there for twelve years performing extreme penance and austerities. As a result, he was blessed with a vision of goddess Mookambika who told him that she could make him very wealthy, powerful and famous. He refused her offer fearing that this would affect his connection with the Mother. Instead, he requested her vision and appearance when he wanted. Goddess Mookambika agreed. He cooks for her and she stays with him at his temple which was the room on the left of the open space. He is closely connected with goddess Mookambika and people have sighted him with goddess Mookambika. He told us that he had a darshan of Divine Mother in the Chitramoola cave at the top of the Kudajadri mountains close by. He smirked and without looking, pointed his hand behind his chair and said, “That guy Shankara also had a darshan of the Divine Mother in the same cave.”

We looked behind him to see who Shankara was. There was no one behind him. At that moment, we noticed that there was a small picture of Adi Shankara pasted on the door  to his room which was behind his chair. This Swamiji had a wicked sense of humour. His comment had us in splits. By Shankara, he meant Adi Shankaracharya, the towering Master who had pleased the Divine Mother with his penance in the Chitramoola cave and got the boon that she would follow him to Kerala and take up residence there at this chosen spot. However, she set a condition that she would follow as long as Adi Shankaracharya walked with full faith that she was following him and would not look back. If he looked back, she would take up residence at that very spot where he turned to see her. Adi Shankaracharya agreed to her condition. Long story short, Adi Shankaracharya looked back when he did not hear the sound of anklets for some time and the Divine Mother took up residence at the current location of the Mookambika temple.

Chandu Kutty Swami said that he wanted a person whom he could train under him with exacting discipline without question. He said if the trainee followed his instructions without question, he would make him a great Siddha. However, he ruefully remarked that none so far had the tenacity to stay there and undergo the training. Most came and left because they weren’t prepared to shed their comfort zones that were being shaken loose in the presence of this powerful Master. He had a helper called Ragesh who had joined him very recently. Ragesh joked that even though he had come there to take care of Swami, it was the other way around. Swami did not allow him to do anything. Swamiji cooked the food himself and took care of most things around the house. Mohanji later told us that Swamiji cooked the food himself because it was consumed by the Mother, Veerbhadra Swami (an intense form of Lord Shiva who is the kshetrapalaka – the protector deity of the Mookambika temple) and other celestial beings.

Ragesh was more chatty and gave us more details about the Swami. Ragesh told us that there was a huge snake guarding these premises, who whistled to warn strangers coming into this place. That explained the whistling sound when we entered. Swamiji later showed the moulted skin of the snake on one of the shrubs. Going by the length of the skin, it could have been twelve to fifteen feet long and very stout as well. Shuddered to think what would have happened to us if the snake had made his physical presence felt. A surprising fact was that there were no animals in that place, not even dogs. This was due to the presence of the snake which prevented even animals from coming in. Ragesh said that Swamiji doesn’t allow people to stay beyond sunset due to the snake. Ragesh also mentioned that Swamiji used to earlier carry bags, refreshments, and so on for tourists who wanted to hike up the nearby Kudajadri mountains. No wonder he had such a powerful physical frame. Ragesh told us that he had himself seen Chandu Kutty Swami walking around with Mother Mookambika and Veerbhadra Swami.

After our discussions, Swamiji asked us to have our lunch and come back at 4pm for the puja and aarati. We returned to our hotel, had food and reached his place at 4pm. Swamiji was sitting on the chair with the same pensive look. He acknowledged our presence and enquired if we had eaten and rested. Under the hot afternoon sun, the space was getting hot and sweaty. We wondered why he wasn’t ready for the puja and aarati. Mohanji asked him if we were on time. He informed us that Mother was held up at Chottanikara (a powerful Goddess temple in Kerala) and it would take her another hour or so to come there.  Mother Mookambika kept him posted about delays in her journey! Mohanji and Swamiji chatted for a while. Mohanji told him that his chairs were very old. He asked him if he could buy him some new chairs. Swamiji said that he would accept if Mohanji wanted to purchase for him. He then got up to get ready for the puja. He did not allow anybody to help him even though every movement caused him considerable pain and evoked from him a painful call to the Mother every now and then.

He took a bath by pouring water over his entire body and then after wiping himself clean got into a change of clothes and applied sacred ash all over his body. He then took his walking stick and walked out of the house towards the temple. The temple door was locked which he opened with the bunch of keys tied to his short loincloth. The altar in the temple was a wall with many pictures on the walls. He briefly paused to tell us  about the various deities and Masters in his altar. He pointed to a picture of Bhagavan Nityananda that was old and wrinkled and had folded by itself. He laughed at the state of the picture and said that Baba was present but hidden in that picture. He sat down at the altar to perform a puja. We sat near the walls around the room. I took up a spot close to the door where a white plastic gunny bag was laid out. He immediately asked me not to sit there. As i got up, he informed us that the Goddess slept at that spot.

He then arranged the materials for the puja. The puja and aarati were fairly simple without much fanfare. He chanted what could have been some mantras or a devotional song. His voice was unclear. As he sang, he was beating a steel plate on the ground for musical accompaniment. A very interesting and low key puja. Though it may have been simplistic and not the most melodious of chants or music, I am sure that the Mother must have loved it since she looked at his devotion rather than his expression. Attending his aarati was akin to being in Mother Mookambika’s physical presence. He offered us prasad (consecrated offerings) and gave us most of the fruits that we had given him as an offering. We prostrated at his feet and took his blessings. He blessed Mohanji by placing his hands on his head and invoking the blessings of the Mother. He then locked the temple and we then took his leave as well.

A couple of months later, we had another opportunity to meet Chandu Kutty Swami in March when Mohanji came to Mookambika again along with Devi, Mila and a small group for Mila’s vidyarambham (initiation ceremony into learning). Before Mohanji’s visit, Preeti Duggal and I went to inform Swamiji that Mohanji would come to meet him the following day. We had planned a short visit to quickly update him and head out from there. We opened the gate with trepidation praying to the snake guarding the place, with a few mental “Jai Mohanji”‘s. Swamiji was alone in the house. We had a communication issue – he spoke and understood only Malayalam and neither of us could speak or understand that language. We figured from his conversation that Ragesh had left a while back. He had been staying there alone since.

We tried to tell Swamiji that Mohanji would visit him tomorrow. Swamiji couldn’t understand a word. We asked one of Mohanji’s followers who understands Malayalam to type out this message on Whatsapp which we could show Swamiji. Unfortunately, Swamiji’s eyesight was weak and he couldn’t read the small letters. We then called the follower and asked her to speak out the message to Swamiji. Swamiji finally understood. He then asked us to sit down and wait. At first, we couldn’t understand but then we figured that he was making lunch for us. We tried telling him that we did not want to disturb him or trouble him. Of course, he didn’t understand a word and kept waving his hand telling us to sit down. Finally, we decided to let it go and prayed to Mother and Mohanji to forgive us for troubling him. We helped him with whatever tasks he let us do. For the most part, he did everything himself. Given that he can barely see or hear, it was a wonder how he managed to cook at all. Probably relied on touch to feel the ingredients and on past experience. He made rice and a delicious potato curry. Finger licking good. To be fed by Swamiji was the same as being fed by Mother Mookambika. Pure grace from Mohanji! We will never know how many lifetimes of karma may have been cleansed by consuming that consecrated offering from the beloved Swami. After lunch, we prostrated at his feet and took his leave. He understood that Mohanji was coming the following day. Thus, our task was done.

The following day, Mohanji came with Devi, Mila and a few members of the group. This time, Swamiji was in a chatty mood and was more engaged in the discussion. He was sitting on the new chair that Mohanji had purchased for him and was visibly happy. Mohanji had ensured that the chairs were delivered to Swamiji the day after we had last met him. Swamiji related his experiences with people who offered to help him with maintenance work. He said, “Many people took money for building materials, services, and so on. It has been a few years and none of them have returned. I am still waiting for them.” Then he started laughing loudly and sarcastically said that it took a “lot of time” to get building material in these parts! I was the designated photographer for this event. He looked at me with curiosity and asked Mohanji why I was taking so many pictures. Mohanji informed him that these are precious moments that we capture for posterity and share with our community. He said, “Oh… Really! So my pictures will go all over the world. I will then sit here with all my pictures around me and look at myself.” Saying this, he started laughing loudly. He laughed like an innocent child and his laughter was very infectious. Mohanji added that I take thousands of pictures but very few, if any, are actually usable. He found this statement very funny and was roaring with laughter, slapping his hands on the armrests as his whole body shook while he laughed. We had the grace of attending his aarati again and he lovingly posed for pictures.

While we were leaving, he casually mentioned that the neighbours were troubling him. They had encroached into his space and wanted him to leave the land. They had tried everything from physical intimidation to black magic. They even bribed the local police to put pressure on him. He said, “I am staying here (on earth) because Mother has asked me to stay. I don’t know how long she wants me here.. Only she knows the purpose behind this insistence. ” Mohanji asked him if there was anything that he wanted Mohanji to do in this matter. He asked Mohanji to write an application on his behalf and send it to the local police station to seek their intervention. We were supposed to leave Mookambika, immediately after meeting Swamiji . Mohanji insisted that we get the document written and signed by him before we left the place. It took us a few hours to get the document written in the local language and signed by him. Mohanji then used his personal connects to have it sent to the police station. Finally, with heavy hearts, we left Swamiji. It was particularly sad to leave him all alone without any help, especially after finding out the issues he was facing with the neighbours.

Swamiji shed his mortal coils on the auspicious first day of Gupt Navaratri – the festival of nine nights dedicated to the Divine Mother. A little while ago, Swamiji had enquired about Mohanji and fondly remembered Mohanji. Swamiji had mentioned that of all the people who came to visit him recently, only Mohanji had been helpful and helped him in whatever way he could. in the end, We have been told that Swamiji was cremated and buried in the same land where he lived. We also heard that his local acquaintances were planning to make a memorial at that place in his memory. Mohanji also said, “Mortal eyes may see his residence as a dilapidated and worn down place but in divine vision, this could be a huge, beautiful and priceless palace fit for the Goddess because Mother lived there with him. That is why it was guarded by that huge snake which may have been a divine being too. Mortal eyes may see him as an old withering 122 year old man but divine eyes see an immortal giant. Do not perceive these saints and judge them with your mortal vision. There is much more than human eyes can see.”

Posted above a photograph of Swamiji’s feet for those who would like to pay their last respects to this beloved Master. Our humble and heartfelt obeisances to this adorable saint whose diminutive size belied his true power and stature. As always, deep gratitude to Mohanji for the grace to connect us with this great Master and receive his powerful blessings.
