Mohanji Satcharita Chapter 2 – November 2018

“Mohanji ek naam mein, saare roop samaye,

Unki krupa hoye toh, dukh koyi na sataaye.

Chaaro dhaam ka vaas hai, Mohanji ke Charan,

Kaialsh unka dhaam hai, kehlate dukh haran.

Jai Mohan Maharaj, Jai ho Yogi Raj.”

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

When His grace prevails, sufferings stay away.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mohanji_with_cub_350

 

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

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

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

 

  • Divine Vision
  • Divine Transformation
  • Divine Healing

Divine Vision

DV_1_350_200

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

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

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

Ramadasa Gowda narrates:

“Sadhguru Mohanananda Chaithanya Maha Prabho.”

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

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

mataji_Paint_2_350_200

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

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

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

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

–Ramadasa Gowda

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

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

Madhusudhan narrates the story from the devotee:

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

One morning, he came to Mohanji’s room as part of his routine. They exchanged pleasantries, but before he could enter the room, he was called aside to look at some urgent scan reports of another patient. The doctor was occupied with this for a brief while and when he went back into the room, he found Mohanji missing! In the doctor’s words, “Mohanji couldn’t have gone out through the door as I was standing there, near the room. This was puzzling. So then I looked ‘inside,’ as there was nothing to see outside. Through my inner vision, I saw Mohanji in my Guru’s Samadhi temple. Then I turned and saw Him walking back to the room. He had a shawl draped over His shoulder. When I saw Him in the room, He was wearing only a T-shirt, so how could this have changed? In that incident, I recognised Him. Dissolution of the body – this isn’t normal; actually Mohanji doesn’t even have a body. This body is just for show and for interactions with the world; this is not His true self.”

An Indian devotee

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

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

Jay Narrates:

Jay_with_Mohanji_350

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Divine Transformation

DT_1_350

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

 

 

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

 

love_650_400

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

Moushumi Narrates:

DT_moushumi_quote_350

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

–Moushumi

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

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

Srinivas narrates:

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

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

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

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

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

Mohanji on how to control a series of unwanted thoughts

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

Mohanji on Being in Now, Silence and Existence

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

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

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

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

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

Jai Mohanji.

 — G Srinivas

Divine Healing

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

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

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

Bojana narrates:

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

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

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

Bojana_singing_350

 

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

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

 

With love and enormous appreciation,

Yours truly, Bojana

 

 

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

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

Rashila narrates:

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

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

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

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

Koti pranams to you Gurudev.

 –Rashila

8. Healing of birds, September 2017

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

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

Milica, South Africa:

SA_Bird 2_350_200

SA_Bird_350

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

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

 

Jai Mohanji!

–Milica

 Subhasree, London :

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

 Jai Mohanji!

–Subhasree

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

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

Srinivas narrates:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jai Mohanji!
–G.Srinivas 

DH_4

 

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

“Gurubhāvaḥ paraṁ tīrthamanyatīrthaṁ nirarthakam
Sarvatīrthāśrayaṁ devi pādāṅguṣṭhaṁ ca vartate”

Which means:

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

Jai Shree Guru Datta.

Jai Mohanji.

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 1, October 2018

Cover_Mohanji1

“Om Parabrahmaya vidmahe

Shiva tatwaya dhi mahi,

Tanno Mohan Prachodayat.”

JAI BRAHMARISHI MOHANJI.

On this auspicious day of ‘Dussehra’ (Hindu festival), which is also the 100th Maha Samadhi day of Shirdi Sai Baba, with deep reverence and gratitude to our Guru Brahmarishi Mohanji, we attempt to compose ‘Mohanji Satcharita’, which is a collection of testimonials as pearls strung together in the thread of faith, love and gratitude. These are the true experiences shared sincerely and honestly by followers across the globe.

A Satcharita is not just a collection of stories, it is not about the person who experienced it, nor is it about how big or small the experience was. A Satcharita is about the Guru and His leela – a divine play! 

Shirdi Sai Baba Himself has said about the ‘Sai Satcharita’ “Hearing my stories and teachings will create faith in devotees’ hearts and they will easily get self-realisation and bliss. Let there be no insistence on establishing one’s own view, no attempt to refute other’s opinions, no discussions of pros and cons of any subject.”

Reading the Mohanji Satcharita would help us witness the divine at play. We believe, just by reading it, the reader will experience the same effect as the devotee who shared it. Not just in the present times, this will be an incredible avenue for future generations, to receive the same grace too.

It’s also true that naive souls like us have no wisdom or capability to portray the beauty and magnificence of Mohanji’s divine acts. Every such leela (divine act) has a deep purpose behind it. Hence, surrendering our ego completely, we begged Mohanji to help us put together this Satcharita

Mohanji blessed us, “I will help you.” 

We were not at all surprised but mesmerised by these words! These were the exact words that Sai Baba had told Hemadpant when he was going to write the ‘Sai Satcharita.’

Why did we think of contriving the ‘Mohanji Satcharita?’

Mohanji says, “The greatest teacher you can ever have is life.”

As we learn innumerable lessons and embark on this journey to realise the Guru within, the presence and guidance of God in the physical form of a Guru is invaluable. For many of us, with Mohanji’s presence in our lives, changes happened from within, changes from which there was no turning back. His presence brings intense joy and peace to the heart and mind. His love, compassion and words of wisdom give us clarity, removing doubts and fears, helping us move towards universal truths.

As unique beings, our journey in life is punctuated with interactions and experiences with Mohanji that are also unique. A great many of us have experienced Mohanji’s grace in many ways. When one surrenders with love and faith, miracles happen. 

Mohanji has shown us these miracles in many ways – through His divine presence, protection, fulfilling wishes, healing, divine visions, communion with Masters and life transforming experiences, to mention a few.

This is the first chapter of the ‘Mohanji Satcharita’ with nine such precious pearls. In this chapter, we have classified the stories into three categories:

 

Divine Vision

The Master works on His devotees in various ways. To an extent it depends on the way we connect with our Guru. Bhakti bhaav (devotion) and deep connection with the Consciousness invokes experiences in the form of visions.  Sometimes answers that we seek are also given through these visions. Experiences belong to the individual and the awareness of these helps us to grow spiritually!

1. ‘Eternal connection with Mohanji’ :  Thea Ivie, Sedona, USA, Feb 2018

This enlightening experience by Thea in Sedona helps us understand the way Mohanji carries us through the ocean of life towards higher levels of spirituality. The physical presence of the Master is not required and the only requirement from our side is acceptance of the Guru with faith and surrender. We become an empty cup which is filled with the highest by the Master and  an instrument through which the Master operates!

Thea narrates:

MS_CH1_Thea.png

From the time I met Mohanji in Sedona last March,  my spiritual growth has been extremely rapid.  

I am an old-timer on this path, having visited India in the 1960’s with darshans of Papa Ramdas, Ananda Moyi Ma, Muktananda and Karuna Mayi. 

I knew when I met Mohanji that He was my finishing school for total enlightenment in this life time.  I gave Him total power of attorney to complete any karmic residue in my subconscious. He said that I had little karma left (but what seems little to the Masters seems like a lot to us.) 

Mohanji has been doing His part consistently, as I have tried to do mine. 

When Mohanji gave me shaktipat during the Sedona retreat, I fell on my back to the ground (nobody was behind me to catch me). There was no way to break the fall as the energy coming from Mohanji was so strong. I saw many Masters coming through Him and knew that He was a channel for many Great Ones. 

As I experienced Mohanji’s energy more and more, I had visions of Rama, Krishna and Shiva coming through Him. At times, I felt He was my beloved Krishna, sometimes my Rama, and then Lord Shiva.   

I experience Him almost all the time, and know that His love for me is always there no matter what I am going through. 

I have recently become a Mai-Tri healer and the miracles have been tremendous: a man with an incurable blood disease was healed by Mohanji through Mai Tri Healing. We had three sessions of bliss and the man was totally healed!!!

I feel so privileged to be His instrument, and so grateful that this great Master came to Sedona to find me!!!! He said that He came for me. Wow! Thank God He found me!

The greatest gift we can have in this life is a Sadguru, and I do not take this great blessing for granted. 

I have experienced the merging beyond form at times, but until I am in that state all the time, I am holding onto those beautiful lotus feet in the form of Sadguru Mohanji. 

My deepest love and appreciation for such a gift!

 2. ‘The divine gift’: Kanika Gupta, Delhi, India. July, 2018

The love for the divine is enhanced through the gift of Consciousness Kriya, a practice bestowed on us by Parabrahma Mohanji, leading us on the path of liberation! This practice also intensifies divine visions and divine love in the practitioner.  Kanika shares one such experience of divine love which she has treasured since childhood.

Kanika narrates :

MS1_CH1_Kanika.jpg

I first set eyes on Mohanji in 2011. I faced a lot of ups and downs in my life during these years. One thing which I clung on to firmly during these turbulent times was Guruji, as He always held my hand. My learning so far in life is to have patience and firm faith in the Guru. The Guru always holds you through the good and the bad in life. Yet another big learning is to help people in need through Seva.

I want to share my experience which happened on 5th July, 2018 during my Kriya practice.

I lit a diya and started my Kriya practice. On completing my Kriya, I saw a small beautiful light and so I clicked some pictures. After a few days, out of curiosity I decided to have a look at the pictures of the light that I’d seen earlier. When I expanded that picture, to my surprise, I saw a divine face and immediately recognised it as the face of Santa Claus. Realisation dawned on the reason for this vision. Since childhood I have always admired Santa Claus; even now, I love to dress up as Santa Claus and distribute gifts to my family.  This experience through Kriya reinforced the love of the divine that has always been with me since childhood and continues to be. This unconditional love of Santa Claus that I experienced happened only by the grace of Mohanji, who has always held my hand during difficulties and good times too!

 Love you Guruji, Love you a lot.

3. ‘The state of expansion’: Subhasree Thottungal, London, June 2017

Merging with the consciousness and experiencing the true state of the Masters can happen during spiritual practices such as recitation of slokas and aarati with deep connection/focus and love. Subhasree shares this divine vision of being in the expanded state of Mohanji, our beloved Guru!

Subhasree narrates:

MS_CH1_Subhasree

One night, after meditation and Shivakavacha, we offered aarati to Mohanji. While doing the aarati, I felt as if I was removing ‘drishti’ off Mohanji.  (Drishti is an ancient tradition in most Indian homes where  a mother carries out a simple ritual of waving a lit camphor in front of her child to ward off any evil eye cast on the child).  As I stood with my eyes closed, I felt Mohanji was just expanding… getting larger and larger… it seemed as if I was at the bottom of some sea world and could only see one leg of the table (on which we had Mohanji’s photo). Slowly everything vanished… I couldn’t see anything, there was only vacuum…. and Mohanji had just expanded completely.

On completion of the aarati, when I opened my eyes, I felt a jerk and realised I was standing in the same place and His photo was indeed at the same place!

This was an amazing feeling.. I just didn’t understand what it was. The explanation for this vision came as below:

“This expansion is my original state.”

 I was left speechless with this communication and darshan from Mohanji in His original state!

Do I need to expect anything further at all? This is the state of merging – merging with the supreme consciousness, the Shiva!

Gurudev, I have simply no existence. I exist because You DO!

Koti Pranam at your feet, Mohanji.

Subhasree

Life Transformation

A true Master’s goal is to lead us towards liberation which is also the ultimate goal of every human. The Guru may give us visions, experiences, and make His presence felt for us to seek refuge in Him. But it is left to us to transform ourselves  and walk towards moksha. This transformation or change is brought on by the Master to help us let go of certain baggage that we carry which may probably entwine us in karmic bondage.

The following experiences are shared by those who have seen major positive changes in their lives.  Mohanji’s presence has transformed their lives, bringing peace and joy to themselves and those around them. 

4. ‘Discovering the new me’: Dr Pritam Purohit, Pune, India, June 2018

Dr. Pritam beautifully shares the changes which happened within him after meeting Mohanji. The changes need not be through dramatic experiences or visions but could take place in a subtle manner. The learning from this experience is dropping the “I” factor and accepting everything as a divine command.  Read on and enjoy the beautiful but subtle transformation of Dr. Pritam.

Dr Pritam narrates:

 ms_ch1_pritam.jpgI have always wondered after reading the experiences of others whether I am connected to Mohanji or not. I came to know about Mohanji from Dr.Nikita, when my wife was undergoing some treatment. My wife became connected to Mohanji first, and started attending meditation sessions and other activities with the Mohanji family in Pune. I was indifferent to things as I was busy at work and  my mind was cluttered with concepts. However, I went to meet Mohanji in Mumbai at the earliest opportunity. This was in June 2017 and now in retrospect, I see that life has been nothing but a miracle ever since.

I used to be an angry person, dissatisfied with almost everything, annoyed and irritable all the time. Every night while going to bed, I would decide to be a changed person from the next day  but it would not happen, thus making it a vicious circle. Gradually it started interfering in my day-to-day functioning. I would crave for  peace of mind and not being able to  have it would make me jittery.

And after Mohanji’s arrival in my life, I have transformed; initially in a subtle, not so dramatic way and then completely. Everyone around me is surprised and so am I! There is a sense of calmness, especially in situations where I used to get agitated earlier. I have begun to see myself as a witness residing in a body rather than being only the body. I feel the emotions, but they have started to have a much lesser effect on me.

I am a physician working in a government set up. Every day, before starting my work, I would pray to Mohanji in my mind and surrender all I am about to do, to Him. And He takes care. I have started to salvage patients in a peripheral hospital, whereas I have seen similar patients dying in a tertiary care premier hospital during my training days. I do not take ownership of the patients, and manage the cases keeping Him in mind, many a time just on clinical grounds as my peripheral hospital doesn’t have any advanced diagnostic facilities. He would always be there and He would take care. Sometimes I would feel that I am being selfish but then I see Him in His photograph and He would be smiling back, giving me immense strength.

And yes, from a dedicated non vegetarian to being a total vegetarian, the transformation has been awesome. This is something that I thought would never happen.

I have not stopped having problems, but He has given me the power to face it all. And there is a feeling of His constant presence. No worries, no negativity… pure bliss.

With gratitude and prayers, always and forever.

Pritam

5. ‘Being the consciousness’: Alex Sasa Glusac, Serbia, October 2018

Being highly intuitive, Alex knew deep in his heart that meeting Mohanji would be life –changing for him. That is exactly what happened when he set eyes on Mohanji and instantly connected with Him at the soul level. Everything was Shiva! Total silence engulfed him and this triggered the process of his transformation! Read on and experience the joy of this communion!

Alex narrates:

MS_Ch1_Alex Sasa.jpg

I was somewhere in between the ending of earlier experiences and the beginning of new ones which were nudging me to Mohanji. Something inside me believed that meeting Him would be important. I admit that I am a sceptical person, but the last years have shown me that there is something more to my spirituality that was awaiting fulfilment, something really special and at the same time completely mine. I am not sure if  I would want to name it, but  if someone were to ask me whether I believe in wizards and fairies,  I would say – Yes!

Because of that I had accepted the idea and the call to come to the retreat as a guest and ‘sneak in’ if there was a chance… and that happened. When I arrived, I didn’t even sit down while waiting and then someone came for me to take me into the hall. And there He was! My first Shaktipat happened in silence in the hall in Andrevlje, where for the first time, I saw Him and the people who cry themselves out…  

I kneeled down and received Shaktipat, honestly knowing nothing about what was supposed to happen. I got up and lost myself in His eyes. Something formidable was shining out of Him.  A deep and intense silence filled me full of strength, but what seemed like an abyss, where all of my thoughts had stopped; Shiva, they told me. I sat on a chair lost in some space where there was nothing. Suddenly I heard my heart tingling and my tears started to flow. Those were the tears of a warrior who  finally after centuries of waiting, had put down his armour and recognized and heard himself. It was the beginning of my path with Him. I know I am missing words in explaining this experience but words do not matter any more to me. I know that I am changing and that Mohanji’s consciousness is inside me and building a new me.

I feel a joy in my soul which is expanding me and erasing the common games of power and proving myself to others. I feel that with every Kriya that I do, it connects me more and more to Him. I am becoming what I am; I am becoming the consciousness which is growing through Him. And I know that deep inside, this feeling of love and the feeling of Him, makes me divine. “Be Mohanji,” He said… 

O yes, I will be. Thank you!

6. ‘In eternal peace’: Sara Sydney, Toronto, Canada, April 2018

One single step can bring on life-transforming changes within a person. Sara took the initiative and attended a POP session after which there was no looking back. She was hooked to the Master although she met Him much later. Once she set eyes on Him, the transformation was accelerated! Given below is an account in her own words about the step by step changes that took place in her life.

Sara narrates:

 MS_CH1_Sara.jpgI was introduced to Mohanji by Nilesh.  He had ordered some T- shirts through the phone to my business and when he came to pick up the shirts, I asked who Mohanji was.  Very lovingly, Nilesh explained to me about Mohanji and asked me to check the Power of Purity meditation online.  He even loaded it on to my desk top.  At that time, I hated myself and the world.  I kept it for 3 months not looking at it but was conscious of it being there. After 3 months, I called Nilesh and asked if he does the meditation he was talking about, and he said yes, come over on a Friday at 7pm.  I went with hesitation, not knowing these people and not knowing what it was all about.  I had a very warm welcome. I enjoyed the meditation and have never looked back.  On the first day, my husband had dropped me to Nilesh’s house where they were doing the meditation.  On the way back and also after coming home, he was surprised to see some changes in me.  He asked if I was going back the next week.  I said, “Yes, no one can stop me.”  He was very happy.

Mohanji came to Toronto in March and I went for the 1 day retreat.  That was the first time I met Him.  I was afraid to talk to Mohanji although He came and sat at the table where I was having lunch.  I was asking Him questions in my mind all the time He was sitting there.  I got most of the answers afterwards.  The most important thing for me was, from that time onwards, I stopped eating meat and fish, and stopped drinking alcohol.  Many more changes in me!

Consciousness Kriya has brought many positive life experiences.  I am more confident.  I am cleaner and clearer within myself.  There is always a white light within my body.  I don’t worry as much as before.  I give it away to Mohanji and leave it behind me.  I talk to myself more, analyse it and then try to forget about it.

In conclusion, I am a more relaxed person.  Much more calm, inside and outside. I am happier when I do my Kriya in the mornings before I start my day.  I have gained a lot of peace and happiness within me.  There is no holding back in this material world.  I am at peace with everyone and everything.

Mohanji says “When you connect to the consciousness through the teachings, then you understand the benchmark for it is transformation. Understand whether the teacher is transforming you. Making you more silent inside. Making you immune to the pleasures and pains of life. These are clear signs of transformation.”

Thank you Mohanji for everything that You have blessed me with.

Sara

Divine Presence

Brahmarishi Mohanji always urges us to connect deeply to His consciousness and when we do He can be seen, sensed, experienced and heard in innumerable ways. Faster than the speed of lightning, the communication can be strong  and vibrant! Physical miles cannot separate a true Master from His disciple. Stronger the call, quicker the response from Him. Mohanji can never ignore these calls and gets pulled towards a genuine seeker. At times, He even anticipates these desires and rushes to fulfill them or makes the ride smooth for the devotees. A simple utterance of His name in earnest brings Him to the caller. It is then left to the seeker to realise the boon bestowed upon him.

7. ‘At the Nandi Hill temple’: Preethi Gopalarathnam, Mumbai, India, October 2018

This beautiful experience happened during a trip to Thiruvannamalai – Arunachalam with Mohanji – just after the Consciousness Kriya Intensive programme in Bengaluru in October 2018. The temple that Mohanji has never visited previously, in a period that Mohanji was not even in India, the priest mentions of Him being present. Not just being present but doing Abhishekam! This divine vision was mindblowing to the devotees, who became aware of this fact much later.

It has been our experience that during each event blessed by Mohanji, hurdles are removed just as the rays of the sun make dark clouds disappear. During this program too, Mohanji paved the way for a successful and smooth program along with darshan as required well in advance. It is our innate nature to assume that we are the doers in any situation. This experience by Preethi brings in the wisdom and reminds us that we are mere instruments in the hands of our Master. If we work with this awareness and allow the grace to do its work, success is ensured.

 

Preethi narrates:

MS_Ch1_Preethi_2

Let me share our experience at Nandi Hills.

When we reached the top of the Hills, the overcast sky signalled impending heavy rain. In fact, group participants asked me how we would be able to do Kriya there. I remembered all the past experiences where things like these cleared miraculously with Mohanji’s grace and replied that it probably wouldn’t rain!

Someone told me the temple we came up for was closed. But we decided to do Kriya either inside or near it anyway. Once we went into the temple, the priest ushered us in and took us inside the sanctum sanctorum. He asked, “Are all of you from Mohanji’s group?” We said yes and he replied that Mohanji had been here a month or so ago. In fact he said that Mohanji was right where we were standing and spent about half an hour doing Rudra Abhishekam. We were wearing our ID cards and hence assumed that we were thus recognized as Mohanji’s followers. We had an amazing darshan (view) and received prasad (sacred offered food).  The priest was very accommodating and in fact directed us to a place where we could sit down to do Kriya. Just to put this in context, usually devotees are not allowed to stay for long inside the sanctum sanctorum of temples in South India. We were filled with love and happily did Kriya inside the sanctum sanctorum. The priest later explained the significance of this temple. Yoga Nandishwarar is where Shiva is in Yoga form, completely in union with Parabrahma. We had a beautiful Kriya session and went to the next sannidhi (shrine) where Maa Parvati called Mukthambika was in a separate shrine. The priest said that one should ask Her for Liberation and when She blesses us, it’s guaranteed! 

The significance of this series of events  was huge, as we were a group of Kriya initiates and have taken vows to lead a life which would help us get exactly there! Once we prayed and did Kriya there, we noticed there was also a shrine for Karthikeya or Lord Muruga. He is considered the Gnyana Avatar (incarnation of wisdom) and I remember Mohanji saying Maha Avatar Babaji was Lord Muruga’s amsa (manifestation). I was elated as it seemed as if the entire Tradition had come to bless us. We then went to the Boga Nandishwar temple, had beautiful darshan (view) and did Kriya practice there. Just when we left the place, there was a light drizzle as if the Gods showered us with blessings and we  boarded our bus. No heavy rain, though when we started in the morning we were mighty sure we would get caught in a heavy downpour!

When I reached Arunachalam (Tiruvannamalai)  the next day, I shared with Mohanji that we had great darshan (view) in the temple the previous day and we practiced Kriya there too. I asked Him if He was there a month ago, and did the Rudra Abhishekam?

With a twinkle in His eyes He said, “I was not here in India, a month back, right?”

I was shocked as I then remembered it was true that Mohanji was not in India last month! I also came to know that Mohanji has never visited this temple previously. Then how did the priest see Mohanji doing Abhishek? If he has never met Mohanji, then how did he even recognsied us as Mohanji’s followers? Questions such as these were racing through my mind!

I also remembered my sister Hema telling me that there was a man who asked her and Nikolina to go inside. He spoke in English and said, “Are you guys not the new Kriya initiates, please go in!” How did he know this? My sister assumed I had spoken to some other people about Kriya, but I had not!

Only then did I realise that Mohanji had actually arranged for this even before we came. I felt various emotions then, including shame for thinking ‘I’ was conducting and arranging the program. He came ahead and ensured smooth darshan  (view) and treatment.

I also understood what He meant by,

“If you remember I will do the program, then everything will be fine.”

What a profound lesson! What a crucial and vital learning experience. I was so humbled and at the same felt at peace. As we go about our daily life (including volunteering work) we need to just remember that we have to make ourselves available and everything happens through us. I understood the significance of these words now. 

Thank you Mohanji for your kindness, and  for explaining this to me as You always do, ‘In baby food format,’ so that I could digest it. After this, my only prayer at every shrine is to help us stay in this awareness as we serve our Guru.

8. ‘Divine presence in any form’: Girija Thekkandy, Kerala, India, Sept 2018

As devotees, all that is required of us is to hold onto the loving hand of the Guru through the ups and downs in life with faith. The Master gently carries us through the journey, shielding us and showering us with His grace. Girija’s experience shows how  chanting the Mohanji Gayatri mantra as a silent prayer helped her and her daughter in a new place!

Girija narrates :

MS_CH1_Girija.jpg

I had moved to Kerala from the US this June, and my 11 year old daughter, my mother and I now live in our new home in Vengeri, Calicut. We have a 5 minute walk to the bus stop of her school bus. My daughter hasn’t learnt the local language yet, the walk ways are winding, the pick-up spot is at a busy junction and she cannot cross the road by herself. In short, she is completely dependent on me as she is new to the country. One day, I had to go for some errands, but the place I had to go to was about an hour and half away. I decided to walk with my daughter  to the school bus stop and thought to myself that I would  return quickly  before the school bus would drop her back after school. Unfortunately, it did not happen as planned. It started raining heavily (I had forgotten my umbrella) and I got onto a bus much later than anticipated.  Finally, the situation was such that it would  be  30 minutes before I would reach the bus stop to pick her up.  Time was ticking by and I knew that I would be late. I could not contact my mother at home, or anyone else  for help. I tried to contact the bus driver, but the call did not go through, most likely because of the heavy rains. I was frozen. I did not dare to imagine what could happen! I simply closed my eyes and started chanting  the Mohanji Gayatri mantra on the bus I was travelling on. To make matters worse, that day my bus did not stop at the correct bus stop! I had to take an auto. When I finally reached my daughter’s  school bus drop off spot,  it was still raining and was 15 minutes past the arrival time of the bus. But I could not see anyone on the road.

I called the bus driver and he said that he was still on his way. I was relieved and picked up my daughter from the bus. On our way back, I asked, “Why are you so late?” She said, “Amma, something strange happened in the bus. The bus was going through a narrow place. We saw a big snake coming from between the trees outside the bus, and climbing in through the open window near the driver. It was moving its head behind the driver’s head! All the children were frightened and started crying from the back of the bus. The driver didn’t know. When he looked back and  saw the snake,  he too  got scared. It took us around 40 minutes  to shoo it away and fix everything.  We had to wait  and that’s why we were delayed.”

Realisation dawned! I was speechless with wonder and gratitude as I understood what had happened. My daughter was asking me “Why you are not talking, aren’t you surprised? Do snakes often come into vehicles in this  manner  in India? This never happened in America.” That is true, this never happens anywhere! I could not speak at that time, but will explain to her the miracle that just took place, one day.

Pranaams (Salutate) to my Guruji for taking care of us by playing this leela (divine play).

9. ‘Anytime, Anywhere’: Subhasree Thottungal, London, UK, August 2018

Our Guru’s promise that He will never leave our hand is proven time and again through various anecdotes. Connecting the dots related to a particular incident is what makes us aware of the protection and support given by Him. In this incident shared by Subhasree, this factor becomes evident as both, the person who was with Mohanji at that point in time and the person on whom the grace was bestowed were both aware of His presence by their side!

Subhasree narrates:

MS_Ch1_Subha2

I will share something that I witnessed, just as a mere observer…

This was during the London Retreat. I was serving Mohanji then. One afternoon, it was His rest time (He doesn’t really have any rest time…it is a time when He may just lie down, either talking to His people or checking emails answering the innumerable  questions of people etc. That afternoon, when He laid down and I was pressing His feet, He turned sidewise, and I noticed that His hands were spread ahead, phone and glasses put aside and in two seconds He appeared to be in deep sleep! I was stunned and wondered what happened, as He doesn’t sleep like this. My gross mind worried, “Oh Mohanji is so tired that He slept immediately.” Little did I know about the happenings unfolding at that time! I gently started pressing His arms and shoulders.

And to my surprise, His arms felt as if there was no skin, no muscles, no bones… felt like soft wool! Now, I was shocked. This was very unusual. I realized that something serious was going on! I have observed in the past that when Mohanji is working on someone, His legs, or arms become rock solid i.e. hard! This time it was the opposite, His body was as soft as wool; I understood that He was not present in the room! Later on, when I came back to give Him tea, He was already up.

He looked at me and said, “I slept immediately, right? I wasn’t here.”

I replied, “I know. Your arms were as soft as a pillow. This wasn’t normal. What happened?”

He then narrated the events.

At that time, someone in South Africa was in real trouble. The young daughter of a devotee was delayed in returning from a far-off place; the usual arrangement of pick-up had failed. The parents were unable to send the car and if the daughter had to wait for it, it would have caused more delay and it was risky. The parents started praying to Mohanji. Mohanji conveyed to them to ask the daughter to come back on her own and He assured them that He will be with her. The mother conveyed the same to her daughter and also asked her to chant the Mohanji Gayatri mantra while walking.

However, the daughter just chanted “Mohanji” repeatedly. What she experienced was truly amazing. She expressed that, while she was walking through the busy road with so many people around, she felt as if no one was aware of her walking. She felt that some people did look at her but they looked to her side and a little higher up, as if someone taller was walking beside her! She felt as if Mohanji was walking with her. Finally, she reached home, safe and sound.

I understood that when I witnessed Mohanji slipping into deep sleep suddenly and His body becoming unusually soft, He had actually gone to some remote place in South Africa to walk the girl safely back to her parents!

While listening to this, tears flowed from my eyes. It was difficult to comprehend how much and in how many ways Mohanji was protecting so many people/beings all around! There was nothing to doubt, because I had witnessed what was happening to His physical body on one side. Our logical mind sometimes can bring in doubts and weaken our faith. But instances like these cause doubts to disappear! My head bowed with so much gratitude for the divinity of our Master, who is living only for all of us.

What we read in Sai Satcharita is actually happening in current times too. All we need to do is keep our inner eyes and ears open, our  faith intact, strengthen our conviction and surrender completely. Grace then flows.

Mohanji, aapki leela aparamapar( “Mohanji, your acts are incomprehensible”).

Jai Mohanji.

— Subhasree

conclusion_Mohanji.jpg

 

We offer this souvenir of our gratitude at the feet of Guru Mohanji and present this with utmost love to all the readers.

We are surrendering our intention of continuing further chapters of ‘Mohanji Satcharita’ each month, as the testimonials from devotees all over the world keeps flowing in.

We would like to conclude the 1st chapter of “Mohanji Satcharita” with this sloka from the Guru Gita,

devanagari

Shri Guroh paramam rupam viveka chakshushomratam,

Mandabhagyaa na pashyanti andhah suryodayam yatha|

Which means:

“The absolute form of the Guru is like nectar to those who can truly see. To those who cannot see through the veil of illusion, the true form of the Guru is shrouded, like the sunrise is to a blind man.”

Jai Shree Guru Datta.

Jai Mohanji.

Guru Tujhe Salaam

— From A Devotee’s heart

Mohanji_Datta.jpg

“Salute to you, oh my Guru” – is what this title above means. In all honesty, a salute,

a pranam, a mantra chant, a kiss on His feet or hand, is not enough to express our gratitude to our Guru, Para Brahma Mohanji!

Today, right now, we are sitting relaxed in our safety zones, in the warmth of our cosy homes, with our loved ones, thanking our stars to have Guru Mohanji in our lives. All this has been possible because He is out there, collecting all our problems, dangers, threats to our lives and taking on most of our baggage.

Our Guru, the true Avadhoota, the Avadhoota in jeans, is walking along the long, treacherous and dangerous path! Gathering all our baggage, putting them on His shoulders, He is walking on that path, so that we stay safe! Being inside the unconquerable fort, with the safe cordon of His protection, we are forgetting the truth of our existence, while He is guarding us from outside the fort!

2014-07 - Mohanji - Kailash - Yatra (1840).JPG

Yes. It is true. It is true that Mohanji, the Master is carrying the burden of all our baggage without bothering about His own discomfort or even threats to His life! Haven’t we seen this happening time and again? Or do we conveniently choose to ignore! Whether we realise, whether we care or not, He stays unperturbed and keeps doing what He has to do. So here is one more incident to add to our realisation of how our Guru does not hesitate even an iota to take on lots of garbage from us even if He has to face disaster.

Homa.jpg

Rishikesh retreat was finishing. On the last day, on 21st September, Mohanji started a sacred Homa ceremony with deep respect and reverence in front of all. There were energies and divine signs of deities present at the Homa when they were invoked. Deities are representations of energies of a particular density and intensity. When invoked in a particular way, they come. Lord Dattatreya Himself was the principal deity helping with the sacred Homa.

Datta

Everyone who attended this Homa ceremony offered dry coconuts without the outer shells. This is a symbol of bringing out all compelling negativities from them on to the coconuts. The coconuts becomes heavier as people download their baggage on to them. As a loyal servant of nature, the coconuts absorb all that is given. Then the Homa Agni (fire) burns the coconuts completely and dissolves the negativities. The Homa Agni is very sacred and powerful!

Homa1.jpg

Usually, as we all know, the dry coconut without its shell does not take much time to burn. Here, some coconuts did not burn for 15 hours, even after delivering almost two bags of stable Himalayan firewood into the fire! Finally, Indra Dev had to bring rain to calm Agni Dev! This simply signifies the amount of negativities that people might have been carrying unknowingly. The Homa and the burning of the coconuts have made each individual lighter.

However, all this takes a toll on Mohanji’s physical form. Some of the negativity goes through His body. That is why Mohanji has stopped doing Homas personally since 2016.

If this wasn’t enough, Mohanji had to come in front to fight with this invisible demon so that HIS FAMILY stays safe! Here is an account of what happened the next day (22nd September)!

Mohanji_to_Badrinath

Mohanji was travelling to Badrinath in a car, along with Rajesh and Sanya. This is the car that was used all through the retreat and Mamu was constantly travelling in it. The driver of this car was a very efficient driver too. There were no complications in the car at all before this journey to Badrinath started.

Driving on the narrow roads in the high altitude hilly terrain, the driver stops the car at a pass on the side to give way to another vehicle. Exactly at that time, the axle of the car breaks. Following that, both the brakes fail too. Rajesh and Sanya went out of the car. Mohanji was still inside the car when it slides down to rest on one side of the road backed up by stones to still its movement. At that point, one tyre also comes out! This was more than enough to cause a disaster if the car was running on the road. With whatever speed, at that altitude, the car and its passengers would have immediately become history!

Everyone came out completely safe. Also, all the other vehicles including the bus and the rest of the cars carrying the entire group going to Badrinath had a smooth journey until Rudraprayag, where all halted for the night.

Can you imagine the reinforcements? Everyone was protected under the shield of Mohanji’s presence.

MAR_3051.JPG

Mohanji, Rajesh and Sanya continued their journey in another car brought by a driver named “Mohan” sometime later and reached Rudraprayag.

This incident reminds us the truth that when danger comes, Father comes out to face the danger Himself, keeping the children safe behind Him. We must not forget this at any moment. Every single breath that we are taking freely, relaxing, being joyful, is only because of our Guru, our Father, our Mother, Para Brahma Mohanji, is guarding us day and night, around the clock.

So, is a salute, a pranam, a chant, a kiss on His feet, enough to show our gratitude? Let us ponder over this and keep reminding ourselves to feel our existence enjoying this incarnation in this beautiful world! We have taken a lot! May be it’s time to give back?

Mantras of Gratitude

Cover.jpg

In a recent Satsang, Mohanji explained that

Mantras are frequencies codified to create a certain effect. So each mantra has a different reason and a purpose. Mantras are a conglomeration of words to create a certain frequency within you. He further adds that this thing called problem or a situation arises from the mind.

This is exactly what happened to Maja O. She went through stressful periods that were both physically and emotionally challenging. It is not surprising that Mohanji, in his loving way, stepped in to mitigate the issues through mantras and healing. The result is that Maja is now at peace, filled with gratitude for her beloved Guru.

At the end of the day, it is just grace and blessings that make a difference in regular life. And gratitude opens doors for grace to flow – Mohanji

Here is Maja’s expereicne as expressed in her words.

Obeisance

With deep gratitude to Mohanji, I’d like to share with you some of the reasons that I have for this eternal gratefulness. It is clear to me that my knowledge of what Mohanji has so far done for me (and many people around me) is very limited, and that these experiences which I am aware of, is just a small portion. I’ll describe three experiences with mantras that were given to me by Mohanji at different times and for a different purpose each time. My inner being is singing gratefully to Him.

~Devi Mantra~

A few years ago, when I first moved to Ecuador, I got very sick. I was vomiting continuously, and I could not tolerate even a sip of water. It was going on for several days. I was very weak, unable to walk, pale, and without any sign of improvement. I was afraid of ending up in a hospital, as my housemates were about to do something about it. I strongly dislike modern medicine, and I usually have a reaction to drugs prescribed by doctors. Still, I gave it a try, but it only worsened my condition. Apart from those physical ailments, I was also going through weird sleep states where I felt as if I was going through different worlds and felt so drained because of lack of energy, that I was afraid to go to bed again. Sometimes, I would have strong sensations in the crown chakra with terrible sounds, such as a motor engine. I spoke to my homeopathic doctor (and a friend) from Serbia, and she advised me to speak to Mohanji about it.

Back then, I had not been in touch with Mohanji for a couple of years, so it was not a normal thing for me to communicate with Him. After my one and only retreat with Him, I fell seriously ill for the second time in my life. As per Mohanji’s instructions, I was not even meditating. It lasted for a couple of years, and thanks to Iskra (Spomenka), I managed to tide over that stage with just homeopathic medicines. Even though I always carried Mohanji’s picture with me, I was feeling very confused and disconnected. It took one more year after the event I’m describing here, to get answers and clarify my doubts. So this time around, when I finally reached out to Him, all the illnesses of the past and present were collectively dealt with by Mohanji, once and for all. Not an easy task, but oh, how grateful I am to Him!

Now, let’s get back to this story. Even though I was unsure, I sent Mohanji a Facebook message, and He replied immediately. He just asked me where I was geographically located. As soon as I sent my reply, I felt Him entering my system through the crown chakra. It took Him just a moment to see what was happening, but as usual, no diagnosis was shared with me. Instead, He gave me a prescription. I received ‘The Devi Mantra’, and Mohanji’s words that the Mother will save me. I had to chant it so many times that I didn’t even bother to remember the number. I just said to myself, “That’s fine, you just chant as many times as you can.” I neither had the strength to sit on my bed, nor to utter a sound, so I just lay down and chanted mentally. Soon after I finished the very first round of chants, I was back on my feet!!!  It took around 30 minutes of chanting for me to get up, walk outside to the market, and buy myself some food. I began chanting 2-3 times a day, and recovered at full speed (to my housemates’ amazement)! Since then, I didn’t vomit even once. Even when I got completely well, I continued the chant for a whole year, and during that period I never fell seriously sick.

~Shiva Kavacham ~

About a year later, I was back in Ecuador again. Some strange events started happening, and I received instructions from Mohanji that it was time for a deep cleansing. I had been waiting for it for so many years. I was aware that I was holding on to some things that didn’t belong to me, and that made me feel bad, but I just didn’t know how to deal with it. I was aided in this process by an awesome lady who was working with me, even though she lived in a different continent. We went through many sessions, and I was feeling quite exhausted. As this was the time when some of my greatest fears were surfacing, Mohanji gave me the gift of the ‘Shiva Kavacham’.

Even after the cleansing, Mohanji asked me to continue listening to the Shiva Kavacham. I was surprised (and still am) at how difficult this task was for me. My mind would get hyperactive as soon as the chant started, and I had to admit that I was doing very poorly at it. One morning, many months later, my mind was surprisingly still while listening to the chant. I was focused on my crown point, and was just utterly peaceful. Nothing on the outside mattered nor existed, just felt immense peace. I vaguely felt the smell of something burning, but even to go to the level of the senses meant leaving the tranquil crown space, and I just kept moving back to that blissful state. The smell of burning was growing stronger again, and again, and my mind started to shift to the outside world. I was soon able to connect to my ‘’usual self’’ and was forced to open my eyes ASAP as there was something burning. I instantly jumped up from the floor, as I saw that Mohanji’s picture had caught fire. The candle in front of the picture with no frame was the cause for the fire. I was saddened to see the beloved picture damaged in the shape of a black half-circle by the fire. I was thinking of throwing the picture away, but it was hard to do that, so I wrote to Mohanji’s team for advice. They remarked that the colorful circles around the damage were unusual, and they forwarded the picture to Mohanji. (I didn’t know if the circles were normal, as I was not very familiar with how burnt pictures are supposed to look like.)

Maja_o_1

His reply was that I should continue using the picture because the yellow and red circle, together with the purple hue that appeared sometimes was an auspicious sign indicating the protection of the Tradition. So, I am still using the same picture, but I bought a nice frame for it. Six months later, one day when I returned home from a healing meditation, I noticed that this picture had another detail: a small vertical line of light.

Maja_o_2.jpg

~Mahamrityunjaya Mantra~

In the meantime, I received a couple of other mantras to chant at all times. I can’t say my experiences with mantras have always been successful. Sometimes, my head would just reach a state where I sensed that my head would explode, together with all the trash from my mind, at which point I would just have to drop the mantra. However, it was not so with the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra.

In June last year, I received the news of my mother’s poor health. My mom had been struggling with a terrible illness for many years. She had been through the stages where both her memory and personality would leave her, and now it was her body as well. Her physical functions had refused to perform, and the situation was clear. I was very sad and helpless. I knew she had been through so much that she deserved peace, but I was just so emotional about it. I felt that there was nothing for me to do on a physical level, but I wanted to ease her pain as much as possible and not burden her with my emotions, while crossing over to the other side. Once again, Mohanji came to my rescue. He gave me the ‘Mahamrityunjaya Mantra’ to chant constantly. Almost instantly, the sorrow melted, and tranquility set in. I was peaceful even upon hearing the news of her departure, some 2 weeks later. I cried, but I was mainly in a state of peace. It was surprising, as I am usually emotional and I had a strong connection with my mother. A few hours before her passing away, while I was chanting the mantra internally, I had a beautiful experience of Mohanji. It was not an extraordinary experience; it was just feeling him in a more subtle way which for me was new. It was only later, when I spoke to Swami Bhaktanandaji about it, that it made more sense.

Twelve days later, I had a chance to have a short conversation with Swamiji after a group healing meditation in Ecuador. Previously, Swamiji had performed healing for my mom, and I felt very grateful to him for that. This time, he had even bigger news for me. While my tears were just rolling, he told me how my mother was saved by Mohanji from further incarnations, how she was now in a very high realm where she exists as a pure spirit, and that she will eventually merge with the Infinite. He said that it was thanks to her kindness and good heart that she was able to reach those levels and be liberated. I was simply dissolving in gratitude and joy. The joy I felt, and still do, is complete and comes from my very core. I could not have imagined anything bigger than that. A lot of people were feeling sorry for my mother because of her misfortune. It was explained that her soul is always in peace, and that it was her choice to go through her illness for a higher reason. I deeply respected her decision and admired her strength that made sense only now. How limiting it is making our judgments based on the ephemeral physical world with our limited awareness, while the soul keeps the wisdom to itself. My mother was not religious or spiritual. Instead, she was just kind, loving, and hard-working, at all times. Even the last time I had a chance to see her, her eyes were emitting only love. I am grateful beyond words to Mohanji, I simply can’t express it in a written form.

I remember leaving that meditation with a heart overflowing with utmost joy and confidence in myself and the world around me. I felt that all I have to do is just be grateful for everything that comes my way. For whatever comes, there is a reason, and I need not worry about a thing. Why worry, when we have Mohanji and the Tradition taking such good care of us!

Thank you, dear Mohanji, for all that I know you did, and for all that I’m not aware of.

With Love
Maja O.

Keys of Faith

By Moushumi, UK

Experiences from UK Retreat 2018

20180813_102741

Our scriptures state that every incident is a passing cloud, bringing with it happiness or trials and tribulations. What helps us tide over the difficult aspects is the faith in the Supreme.  Our beloved Mohanji always takes care, gently pushing these dark clouds away with the least impact on us.

This is exactly what Moushumi, her daughter Esha and husband Prabhakar have shared in this testimonial where a seemingly large problem drifted away into oblivion by the grace of Mohanji!  A strong thread of faith and surrender weaves its way through the three different experiences in the same incident!

Moushumi’s Narration:

To start with, I would like to mention that if you surrender with faith to your GURU, then your Guru takes care of you.

Here is a lovely miracle from the recent London retreat, UK on 12th August 2018. This is an experience that we were blessed with as a family – my husband Prabhakar, my daughter Esha and I.

This beautiful day commenced with Deviji’s Yoga, followed by satvik vegan breakfast and then Satsang with Mohanji. After the Satsang, we went to our rooms for tea as directed by Mohanji.

I am with you

The above written quote by Mohanji, we actually experienced it that day.

Now, let me share what I experienced.

When we went into the room, I found the lights were on, my purse was somewhere else, but I did not give it a second thought and came out. Meanwhile, the family staying in the next room were talking to someone about a theft. Hearing this, I rushed back into the room and suddenly realised as to why the lights were on, the purse wasn’t in its proper place and things were in disarray.  I noticed that my mobile, the car key and the home keys were stolen. I spoke to Vijayji (the organiser) who was already talking to someone in the main hall where Mohanji was chatting with a few people. Vijayji made an announcement in the hall about the incident. Just then, my daughter walked in and came to know that not only my mobile, but also the car keys along with home keys were stolen from the room. She started crying, as she was worried that the thieves could drive to our home and do something to her six months old pet Hamster (OREO).

Esha_with_oreo

I consoled her, and my husband and I again headed back to our room.

When I opened the door of my room again, the vibrations in the room were different – one of calm and peace. I walked in and to my surprise found that both the keys were on the top of a small tub containing a moisturizer cream, the usual place for the keys to be in! Initially, it was confusing, as the table was exactly in front of the main door and the keys were lying there on the small tub – in direct view. As I was heading towards the hall, Mohanji was coming out of the hall and he asked me directly, “Did you find the keys?” I replied in the affirmative. (I did not understand why he asked me only about the keys). He asked, “What else is missing?” I replied, “Mobile and £5 or £10.” He said, “That’s ok, first go and tell Esha that you got the car keys; she is crying.” In fact, then Mohanji himself spoke to her and I stood there speechless for a few seconds, as the realisation of the situation hit me! If there is total faith in the Guru and complete surrender, anything is possible!.

Later on, as I put the pieces together, realisation dawned that when my daughter spoke to Mohanji about her hamster, he told her that he would do whatever he could! He kept up his promise. It wasnt difficult to comprehend that He kept His promise because first of all it was Esha’s request that too in the compassion for a helpless tiny being! We see Mohanji’s love for little children, the purest forms of divine as well as the helpless animals and other beings. If it meant to do something out of way to make Esha relax about her pet Oreo, so be it. He did what He needed to. It’s needless for us to worry about how did he do that, when he was physically in the hall amongst 40/50 people? Divine answer to innocent pure souls calls, are usually unexplainable!

The entire incident happened within a gap of few minutes – going to the room for the first time, finding things stolen, talking to Vijayji, and then returning to the room and finding my keys on a very small tub. It was surprising as I am a meticulous person and particular about placing things in its correct place. The question from Mohanji asking only about the keys was even more surprising. Mohanji’s reply to Esha about her pet hamster, “I shall do whatever I can”, says it all. It was indeed a miracle!

The day we met Mohanji in December 2016, Esha connected with him instantly. Every night before sleep, she likes to watch Mohanji’s videos. When I told Mohanji about this, he said that she is very much connected to him.

Such a blessing, having Mohanji in our lives!

Esha’s Narration

My mum and I went into our room at Gilwell Park and found the lights on in the room. I just suspected that dad left the lights on in the room, as he was the last one out. My mum was a bit more alarmed than I was. I used the bathroom and then went to play with some of my friends. Meanwhile, mum went into the room to get her phone.

My friend and I were playing in her room (which was right next door to ours), when my mum came in and said frantically, “Have you seen my phone!” We responded with a no and then, with a serious/worried expression on her face, she went to ask my dad. I followed her. When dad replied no, all three of us went back to our room. Mum showed us her purse which had all its zippers open, my books were open on the bed, my toy dog was under the pillow and my mum’s phone was gone. All of us looked everywhere for it but it wasn’t anywhere.

I carried on playing because mum said I could go and play. Soon, I started feeling very thirsty, so I went into the main hall to get a drink. I saw my mum and dad talking to someone. I went over and overheard my mum saying that the car and home keys were missing. Suddenly I felt very worried. If the thieves had the home keys, then they might be able to get into the house. I thought that if the thieves were smart enough to take the keys without anyone seeing them do it, they might be smart enough to find out where our house is. I was getting worried and I started to cry. If the thieves get into the house, who knows what they might do to my pet hamster!

Mum and Dad started comforting me, but I could tell they were worried as well. Suddenly my parents were called out of the hall, but I was still crying. Some women came over and asked questions like, “What happened”, and “What’s wrong!” I told them, and they said that things are going to be OK. Then, Aunty Subhasree came over and assured me not to worry, as my mum will get a new and better phone. But I told her about my hamster (called Oreo) being at home and the thieves might be able to get into the house. Then she told me “go and hug Mohanji. Everything will be alright.” Then she took me to Mohanji who was standing a few feet away. Aunty Subhasree explained to him that I am crying because my Hamsters are at risk, since we cannot get into the home as home keys are stolen! Mohanji hugged me and said that He will do what He can. His words made me feel relaxed and I cheered up a bit. I just knew that He would make sure nothing bad happens to Oreo. The next minute, my mum came in running saying, “I found the keys, I found the keys!” I was so gleeful, and I thanked Mohanji with all my heart. When we were walking back to the room, Mohanji came up to me and said, “Did you find the keys?” I replied to him saying yes and I said, “I am so happy. Thank You, Mohanji!” Mohanji smiled.

Prabhakar’s Narration

Here’s my husband Prabhakar’s write up of the miracle that he experienced:

I always tend to carry my laptop when I go on trips.  Also, as the retreat was to end on Tuesday and I was on leave from office, I had promised my project manager that I would take a call from the office for an hour on Monday. While packing, I ensured that I included the laptop among the items to be taken. There was no rush as we were leaving the house and somehow, I just did not feel the urge to carry the laptop with me and so left it behind. The theft happened on Sunday at the hotel & my laptop could have gone missing. More than the laptop, the precious non-backed up pictures & personal documents would have been lost!

During such programs like the retreat, I always make sure not to carry any electronic devices such as the mobile with me. I put the mobile in my pocket at break time to practise the bhajan that I was planning to sing in the evening (first time ever in life, I thought of singing & wanted to rehearse!). When I returned to the hall, I realised that the mobile was still in my pocket & Mohanji had arrived by then. The mind commanded to quickly rush and leave the mobile in the room. In spite of the prompting of the mind, I did not take any action and I still can’t remember why! Had I left the mobile in the room, it would have been stolen!

The Guru’s ways of working are beyond what the mind can comprehend. Firm faith & acceptance will take us to great heights in our individual journey is my learning from this incident.

Vijay Ramanaidoo’s Narration

This is a really amazing incident! While I was in the satsang hall during the retreat I saw three youths walking towards the side of the lodge where we were staying. Then about 10 minutes later I saw then running away at great speed. I thought at the time that it looked suspicious not realising that they were the ones who had broken in (subsequently confirmed by the children who had been playing near the exit). After the satsang ended and people headed to their rooms Moushumi approached me in a distressed state about the theft from the room listing all the missing items including car keys and house keys. Esha, her daughter was also in tears. They were especially worried about the keys wondering how they would get home and into their house. Esha was worried about her hamster at home. When Moushumi went back into the room after speaking to me, she came running out again saying that the burglars had returned the keys! I was wondering what kind of burglar it must have been to take money, mobile, house keys and car keys, plus take items from other rooms, then to return both sets of keys to her room without being seen! Even if they did return them, how could they remember that it was this exact room and how would they dare enter again! I initially thought that maybe she hadn’t seen the keys when she first went in after the burglary. However the keys were placed on top of a tub of cream on the table – so visible and very easy to see. There was no way that they were there before! Moushumi also said that she is so particular that she notices any small thing that is out of place, Prabhakar said the same thing to me. It seems that this was all a drama in order to demonstrate an act of grace and increase our faith. Plus to comfort a little girl worried about her hamster! Jai Mohanji 😊🙏💜

The Consciousness Connect

By Neelu (Mohana Bhakti Priya), India.

Mohanji_pure_consciousness.JPG

Connection to Mohanji’s consciousness is truly Being One with the divine. All Duality ends there. Every sincere seeker’s story, who have been connected to Mohanji in His consciousness, shows this every time. Such is the story as Neelu narrates through her sincere testimonial below.

When we are connected to Mohanji, physically or metaphysically, or even when he is around physically or non-physically, things just happen – big problems become laughable jokes. Life is as it flows. We are all one. – Devi Mohan

Neelu has shared her experiences that validate this into two very different situations. Read on and enjoy the beautiful shower of blessings on Neelu and her cousin Sameer!

Gurudev’s Grace takes him out of ICU

My cousin Sameer, was hospitalized in Hyderabad, last Saturday with high fever. (This young 25-year-old, lost his parents and little brother in a tragic road accident while returning from Shirdi ten years ago.) Doctors first diagnosed his condition as Dengue, owing to the rapid fall in his platelets. But later, the tests appeared positive for malaria and Jaundice too. His body temperature did not return to normal even after medication for 3 days. As soon as I came to know of this, I sent a message to Mohanji seeking his help. He immediately replied in spite of his busy schedule and advised us on some course of action for removal of his Karma. Throughout, Mohanji was with him (in astral form) helping Sameer recover. When I prayed to Mohanji before I went to bed and connected with his Consciousness, I asked him if Sameer would be ok. I received his reply that he was there beside Sameer. Last night, the situation had been very grim. But in one night, Mohanji changed the whole scenario.

Today, his body temperature has normalised, and further tests show that there are no traces of malaria, dengue, or jaundice. He has been shifted from the ICU to a regular room in the hospital and he will be discharged in just two days after observation.  What could have been a week’s ordeal was set right by Mohanji in just one night!

Such love and grace is possible only from Him. Thank you so much for everything, my Gurudev!

Neelu shares two more of her own experiences which show how our Guru hears and satisfies our innermost longing for his Grace and blessings. Connect to a living master through faith and surrender and He will always be with you!

Initiation to Consciousness Kriya

Before I write anything about my Consciousness Kriya (CK) initiation and the experiences related to the sacred elevating tool, I would like to offer my Koti Pranaams at the lotus feet of my Master, my everything, my everyone, my Praana, my Aatma, Shri Brahmarishi Mohanji, for bestowing me with his unlimited Grace.

Applying for Consciousness Kriya

After my connection with Mohanji, I started reading about Consciousness Kriya and the experiences of the initiates. Deep within my heart, I knew that it was meant for me as my soul craved for this sacred initiation. I don’t know why, but I never dared to apply for it. There were many reasons for my hesitation. First of all, it was because my immediate family has no belief in living Masters and such techniques. And I thought, it was meant for people who can sit and meditate for a long time, which I could not do. I had many such fears. As always, Mohanji, who knew all these things, lovingly gave me a wonderful and comfortable opportunity to apply.

I was planning a vacation, to visit my parents in Hyderabad, from the end of December 2017 to mid-January, 2018. Exactly at that moment, the Kriya training and initiation in Mumbai (to be held on 9th Jan 2018) was announced. So I had a very good opportunity to attend the initiation with my parents without having to depend upon my immediate family. (My maternal family – my mother and brother – are very connected to Mohanji.) My brother and I always wished that my mother should also be initiated into CK. So my mother and I applied for the sacred initiation. By his loving grace, both our applications were accepted. I was very happy and excited. Everything was going smoothly as I had wanted.

Within a week of acceptance of our CK applications, turbulence started, which I think was a major cleansing process for me. Negativity was hitting me from everywhere. The biggest hit was, when my mother-in-Law fell down and got her ankle slightly fractured. It was just a week before our vacation to Hyderabad. I worried that I may not be able to attend the initiation, as I could not leave my mother-in-law alone in such a condition. But on visiting a doctor, we came to know that, it was just a minor fracture, and she would be normal within 15 days. I realised that I still had sufficient time to be present for the CK initiation. I immediately understood how Mohanji was protecting me from the intensity of the negativity and making it possible for my mother and me to attend the initiation. My vacation to Hyderabad was however cancelled due to this incident, but we could attend the initiation without any problems.

Attending Consciousness Kriya Initiation

My brother was also present with us at the initiation. Baba arranged it in such a way that my parents, my kids and I didn’t face any problems in an unknown city, Mumbai. Moreover, Mohanji fulfilled my desire of meeting him, along with my brother and my mother. (The most loving and understanding trio I have in this lifetime.) Actually it was the first time that I left my little son (and my older son) with my father in a hotel room. He had never been away from me like this for a whole day. But I surrendered all my worries at Mohanji‘s feet and left for the venue. Mohanji as always took care of my worries. My little son was alright, even though he couldn’t see me for a whole day.

The day of the initiation, 9th of Jan, 2018, was very blissful and beyond my imagination, filled only with love and purity. As soon as I entered the venue, I could feel the pure energy of Mohanji. I felt that the whole room, the people present there, the food that we were served, everything was filled with Mohanji.

It was also the first time that I was meeting Deviji, which I was looking forward to, for a long time. She trained us in CK, which was again an amazing experience. She explained to all of us very patiently and clearly the whole process of CK. I felt so blessed that I had a chance to get the training of CK from none other than the Shakti aspect of Mohanji (Deviji). After the blissful training session, Mohanji himself gave us the sacred initiation. Later, he met my brother, my mother and I in a very loving manner, and that moment will always be one of the best moments of my life.

After the initiation, we attended the group Mai-tri healing session, which was again a wonderful and blissful experience. In the evening, we had the blessed opportunity to participate in a soul soothing satsang with Mohanji. After the Satsang, as soon as Mohanji left the venue, my back ache, which I had been suffering from for many days, disappeared magically. He took all our pains away while leaving.

Visit to Shirdi

The day after the initiation, we were to visit Shirdi, after a long gap of 9 years. On the day of initiation, my mother and I thought that it would be wonderful if Mohanji was present with us in Shirdi. There was a retreat scheduled in Shirdi from that day onwards and MohanJi was also present there in Shirdi. Unfortunately, those not attending the retreat were not allowed to meet Mohanji. So we knew that we didn’t stand a chance of meeting him. But he was listening to us, as always.

The day we reached Shirdi, we attended the Shej Aarati of Sai Baba. My mother and I were waiting in a hall for the Aarati. As soon we were seated, we got the smell of a perfume, just the same that Mohanji wore during the initiation. We understood that he was present with us. The perfume remained with us the whole time. He added one more sign to indicate his presence. A black and sleek dog came from nowhere, and waited with us till we got into the Mandir hall for the aarati. He was there just for us, making sure everything was ok, I could feel it in his eyes. He waited with us while we were in the queue to enter the Mandir hall.

After we entered the hall, I didn’t see him. We had a wonderful Aarati and darshan of Sai Baba. As soon as we came out of the Mandir, he (the dog) was there waiting for us. We went to the Gurusthan to pay our respects to the sacred place. As it was late night, it was closed for darshan. So we just paid our respects from a distance. The black dog jumped through the railings, and he bowed before the Gurusthan. All the time, he was looking at me, straight into my eyes. I was just speechless. And at last, as we headed back to our hotel room, he also walked away. He stopped after a while, turned back, gave a long reassuring look at us and went his way. We were blessed to have this amazing experience. My feelings were one of gratitude and only gratitude.

Mohanji Pendant

It has always been my desire to have the Mohanji Pendant. I was trying to buy it online, but due to some reason, I couldn’t buy it for six long months. I tried to get one at the stall during the CK initiation too. But it was not available that day. I was very disappointed by this. I wanted the pendant to be blessed by Mohanji and to receive it from his hands. But it didn’t happen. So I requested the team there to send it to me, blessed by him at the Shirdi retreat. I got it on 27th Jan, at a blissful Bhajan Sandhya at Gurgaon. The day is very memorable for me.

After a week of receiving the pendant, my kids were clicking my pictures at home. On that day, I wore a heavy black coat, and my pendant was beneath it. When I was going through the photos, the ones clicked by my little one had an amazing phenomenon. The place where the pendant was hanging on my chain, beneath the coat, was shining very brightly, like a small sun. Mohanji was present in the pendant. He showed it to me, so beautifully…

Mohanji’s Grace & Love

The unlimited grace and the unconditional love he always showers on a nobody that I am, can’t be explained in words. These words are only a very feeble attempt to show his love.

There have been many tests since my Kriya initiation, till this date. Being a very emotional person, I was shaken to the core, while undergoing these tests. He was very gently holding me through all these times, protecting me as a mother would protect her baby. He made me shed a lot of my fears, empowered me and never gave up on me, in spite of my many falls. With each and every experience, he came much closer to me, loved me more.

As I have said in my earlier experience blogs, his consciousness always speaks to me. Now, I talk to him more than anyone else in this world. In fact, the real conversations I have in my life are with him only. Sometimes I forget there is another world for me. But he makes me manage my other world too without any hiccups thus, filling my whole life with HIM everywhere. I can feel him now in my every cell. In fact, my whole being just belongs to HIM. My whole existence lies at his Lotus feet only and nowhere else.

I am now eagerly waiting for the blissful moment, when I will be able to merge into him completely, after completing all my duties of this lifetime. The wait for the complete dissolution, walking the path while holding HIS hand, is what LIFE means to me now.

The Shield – Mohanji’s Kavacha

Mohanji Kavacha

Our Gurur Mohanji is working relentlessly and tirelessly working round the clock to protect us: something that most of us know and have experienced.  This is clearly evident from the following experiences.

Preeti Duggal, Bangalore

Late one evening, after dinner, Preeti’s children and sister-in-law, Devyani, went out for ice-creams to a frequent haunt, not far from her home in Bangalore, India. After enjoying their ice-creams, while walking back towards the car, a person suddenly appeared from nowhere and tried to snatch Devyani’s handbag. The snatcher gave her a hard push and she fell flat in the middle of the road! The road was a busy one with fast-moving vehicles and it was miraculous that there was only one speeding bike that stopped inches from her! Thoroughly shaken and in a panic, my daughter rapidly got everyone in the car and tried the ignition,  but it wouldn’t start. She then called her father, Rajiv, who quickly reached the spot, faced no problem to start the car, and drove the family to the nearby hospital.  By the time they reached the hospital, Devyani was in great pain, unable to move. We expected a fracture or internal injury from that hard fall on the concrete road.

All this while, Preeti constantly chanted Mohanji’s Gayatri  Mantra and transferred  Mai-Tri Healing energy to Devyani. After a couple of hours, to the great relief of the family, the X-Ray and scan confirmed that there was no fracture nor internal injury.  When they returned home after this 3-4 hour-long ordeal, on retrospection, the family realized one thing very clearly – how much Mohanji had protected them during this incident.

Mohanji, the compassionate guru that he is, protects not just those of us who believe in him, but their families, and the lineage, both in the past and future! Devyani could have been easily hit by a fast-moving vehicle when she fell in the middle of the busy road, yet there was only one bike on the road that stopped in the nick of time. This does not seem to be a coincidence. Certainly, a big karma had to be exhausted, but it happened in a much lighter way.

We thank you Preeti Duggal, for sharing this beautiful experience with us.

Jai Mohanji!

Chandralekha, Palakkad

I am a psychiatric counsellor, working for a psychiatric hospital in Palakkad. Since the past two years, I have been regularly attending Mohanji’s meditation sessions at the Shirdi Sai Baba Temple at Palakkad. Some days ago, Mr. Devdas gave me a copy of the ‘Siva Kavacham’ chanted by Mohanji and I started listening to the Kavacham from that day itself.

The following Monday, when I was sitting in my counselling room, a man was furiously rushing around with a metal rod having sharp ends. He was a psychiatric patient. Hearing a loud noise of something breaking, I hurried out to know what was going on. Suddenly, the patient rushed towards me with the metal rod.  I tried to shut the door quickly, but he pushed the door and tried to forcibly enter the room.  Struggling, I found a small gap and ran out of the room and managed to overpower him from behind. All happened within minutes. Soon, the other staff members heard the sounds and came to my rescue and took him out.

I am usually a calm and quiet person, and I have never experienced a situation like this in the past. I don’t know how I got the strength and the idea to manage the situation that day!  I also realised that neither patient nor I was hurt or injured in any way. I am sure my saviour saved me and my family!

Thanks a lot Mohanji, for being with me and my family.

It was then that I understood the purpose of getting the Shiva Kavacham.”

Mohanji, SP is unwell with altitude sickness. He left this morning for Ladakh and it hit as soon as he landed. Please be with him.” This was the message I sent Mohanji a couple of days ago.

Recently, my younger daughter Devika and her father, husband, SP,  left for Ladakh, on a work trip. Ladakh has always been a part of our lives for over 30 years.  We went there as often as we could, taking our children there for the first time when they were barely 9 and 7-year-olds. The altitude, the biting cold, the terrain…none of these things had ever bothered us so far, even though SP suffers from chronic Asthma. So when Devika called asking me if I had heard of a tablet called Diamox, I panicked – the tablet was what one took in case of altitude sickness. She added that SP had been a bit dizzy since landing and he had blacked out on reaching their homestay. The nearest doctor was away visiting another village, and taking SP back to a hospital in Leh would take a couple of hours. I said a quick prayer – Mohanji’s Gayatri – and then told her to go ahead and give SP the medicine (even though we had no idea if SP would turn out to be allergic to the drug). I disconnected the call and immediately sent the message to Mohanji.

His response was quick – “I am with him”. Mohanji also asked me to chant a mantra as often as I could. The rest of my day was packed with meetings. I chanted in the car, between my meetings and on the way home.  I tried their mobiles every hour but I was unable to get through. Was I worried? Yes, I was, but I knew deep down that it would work out as it was meant to. When my phone finally rang around 10 pm, I heard SP’s calm voice, a bit softer than normal, telling me that he was fine. I said I had been worried. And he said, “Yes, I know and you told Mohanji.”

As I write this I marvel at the expansive silence that resides within me despite the patchwork that life weaves around me time and again. Mohanji has shown me the plausibility of faith and the positive impact it has on me and everyone around me.

Somewhere I have begun to understand what Mohanji means when he says, “I am with you”.

As I write this SP is back at work, still in Ladakh!

These experiences prove beyond doubt that the Guru is always by our side gently holding our hand unconditionally and walking us through the storms of life towards liberation.
