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!

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 being driven by Mohan the driver, along with Rajesh and Sanya. This is the car that was used all through the retreat and Mamu was constantly travelling in it. Mohan 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, Mohan 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 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.

Neelu_CK_Inititation.jpg

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.

Mohanji_Pendant.jpg

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

Chandralekha.jpg

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.

Grace through Faith & Surrender

Real life experience shared by Devotees

Mohanji_grace

Dr. Harpreet Wasir, Preeti Duggal, Ekaterina Nestorovska and Reena Kumar share their experiences that show the presence of Mohanji’s protection and grace at every moment, regardless of His physical presence. If we have a strong connection to our beloved Guru, not only does He taken care of us but also those who are connected to us.

i am with you.jpg

Dr. Harpreet’s Experience Sharing:

We begin with Dr Harpreet’s recent experience of grace and protection.

Harpreet_Mohanji_Grace.jpg

“I had three difficult cases to operate upon. A heart valve replacement surgery followed by two heart bypass surgeries. The first two patients were from Iraq who had come to us because they could not afford surgery there. Before I start my surgery, I always dedicate it to Mohanji  and also leave the results to Him after I finish.

At a critical juncture when the heart was beating in my hand during the surgery, I got a call that my mother, who is aged 80 yet an active gynaecologist, had slipped and fallen. In the middle of the surgery, I somehow managed the decision to get her to the emergency department. With Mohanji’s grace, she reached the X-ray room of the emergency department around the same time as I was leaving the operating room.

Harpreet_Mother

When my mother was on the X-ray table, all the doctors who examined her were sure that they would find hip fractures or a spinal fracture. When I reached the emergency department, I realized that I was carrying Mohanji’s eye card in my chest pocket which was highly unusual. I realized that I badly needed His presence for my cases today and, hence, had kept it. I kept the eye card in my mother’s hand before her five X-rays were due. I told her to hold it and just remember Mohanji whom she has met only once.

eye.jpg

I stood in utter breathlessness and in complete surrender to Mohanji. I just put my mother in His care. I was in a state of utter silence and thoughtlessness, simply connected to Him. Most astonishingly, despite the doctors being sure of a fracture, all the X-rays were normal and I was able to take her home for pain management.

On reflection, I realised that I carried His card not just for the patients who came to me for surgery, but most unexpectedly for my mother too. It feels like Mohanji, being a Guru, pre-emptively knew about this event. He gave me serious patients so that I would keep His card in my pocket so that it could be given later to my mother for her protection, thus ensuring all her X-rays were normal.

Harpreet_Mohanji_blessing.jpg

As a doctor, I work with people’s lives. But I always feel that it is He who does it through me. He pre-empted all events as He always does for those who have utmost faith and surrender. It is for all of us to know that Mohanji not only takes care of the present but also of the future. Our faith is always answered.”

Jai Mohanji,

Dr. Harpreet Wasir, Delhi

Preeti Duggal’s Experience Sharing:

Preeti_Mohanji_grace2

Preeti Duggal shares here how Mohanji’s grace was evident at a time of crisis, enabling Preeti to embark on a sacred pilgrimage as planned.  When we surrender, grace flows…

“I would like to share the rays of grace which Father always showers on us unconditionally. To attend the Bosnian pyramids pilgrimage, Preethi Gopalarathnam and I were flying from Mumbai to Frankfurt en route to Zagreb. When we reached the airport, the airline staff informed me that my ticket for the journey had not been booked. It was booked only for Preethi Gopalarathnam. The travel agent had forgotten to block the seat for me and, hence, the ticket was not booked.

It was a moment of panic for a few minutes, but as always Mohanji was our saviour. At the last moment, we had to buy a ticket which was luckily available though at twice the price. The flight from Frankfurt to Zagreb was full, but with His blessings, we found a seat in a flight a few hours later. Seated alone at Frankfurt airport, I realised how with very little difficulty, Mohanji had arranged my trip. At 2:30am in the night, He checked with me if everything was fine.  I have no words but only gratitude and love for Him. Thank you Father for always being there for me at times of crisis. I learnt a big lesson too. Never take things for granted.”

Preeti_Mohanji_grace1

Madhusudan Rajagopalan, who was a witness to this incident, added his views on this incident as below:

“This incident happened between 12:45 to 1:15am for a flight scheduled to leave at 2:55am. Look at how grace worked – they were very coolly dealing with the situation (acceptance) and planning alternatives instantly (practicality). How amazing that the tickets were available at such short notice for both legs – onward and return. Mind you, their return was from Belgrade to Mumbai, so it was a multi-city itinerary, not a plain return ticket.

Due to all this drama, they were able to reach immigration only by 2.30am and amazingly, the flight was delayed! As Mohanji always says “Big problems are solved through minor hardships” and that’s what had happened here; eagerly laid plans were not disrupted and valuable lessons were learnt about extra diligence while planning a journey;  and of course ample demonstration of how He works silently to protect us. I don’t think we even fathom how lucky we are!”

fire of awareness

Jai Mohanji,

Preeti Duggal, Bangalore

Ekaterina Nestorovska‘s Experience Sharing:

Ekaterina_Mohanji_Grace1

Ekaterina Nestorovska states how she experienced  the protection of  Mohanji at a time when she felt vulnerable. As with many of us, this is just one of many such incidences in her life. Ekaterina’s connection and faith in Mohanji and His unconditional love and protection towards us all is shared beautifully here.

“At work today I was asked to stay late and it was dark by the time I had left. To get to the bus stop, one has to walk through a deserted road which has no lights, houses or people. It’s a well known unsafe area. As I was leaving, I felt an impulse to listen to a protection chant  sung by Mohanji and played it through my headphones. As I was hurrying to reach the bus stop, I noticed a man on the other side of the road who passed me by, walking in the opposite direction. He suddenly turned around and started following me. As it was so dark and lonely, anything could have happened and no one would have known. As he started whistling, I started repeating Mohanji’s name. I didn’t have any fear and had faith that I was protected. I, of course, had the urge to walk faster to get to the main road and to the bus stop. Once I got there, the danger was gone.

When I got home, I saw a huge dog lying at my front door. I felt as if it was a sign of protection. I went in quickly to get some food to feed it. Everything happened so quickly that I didn’t have time to think much. But it truly felt like I just have to be in the hands of Mohanji and flow with whatever comes. There is nothing else to do!

Jai Mohanji,

Ekaterina Nestorovska, Skopje, Macedonia

Reena Kumar’s Experience Sharing:

Reena_Ronit_Mohanji_Grace1.jpg

Reena Kumar narrates her experience of how Mohanji’s divine protection ensured that her son Ronit was able to sit for his exam and do well, despite a serious accident.

For me, Mohanji is sakshat bhagwaan (God incarnate). He is so compassionate and listens to his devotees. My son Ronit is very careless and casual as one tends to be during adolescence. During his tenth grade, he rarely studied. I used to be worried about his attitude. Before the exams, Ronit was able to meet Mohanji. Mohanji looked into his eyes and said “Don’t worry.” A few days later, Ronit met with an accident before his last exam. By Mohanji’s grace, his eyes and brain were fine. However, he had severe injuries to the hands, shoulders, legs and feet. Usually, no one waits for an accident victim in Gurgaon, but 18 people waited with Ronit and called us. His scooter was in a terrible condition. It couldn’t be moved but people helped me park it as my husband took Ronit to the hospital in his car. By Mohanji’s grace, I was offered water and someone dropped me home.

My son wasn’t able to study for his Maths exam as he had severe pain and went for the exam on a wheelchair. When the results were about to be declared, we were very stressed as Ronit had sat for the exam without any preparation. He got 70 marks in maths. That could be possible only with Mohanji’s grace. Mohanji had saved his year of work. Ronit told me, “Mohanji had said ‘Don’t worry’ before the accident. He was with me, Mumma.”

Mohanji’s grace was evident again on the day of the results helping Ronit with what he wanted to study further – science. In his school, admission into the science stream was impossible with Ronit’s result (71 percent). Because of Ronit’s casual attitude, the principal was reluctant to allow him to take science and said that it was impossible. My husband prayed to Mohanji and wrote to Him. Ronit and my husband waited for three hours and Mohanji’s reply came. He said “I am proud of Ronit.” At the same moment, the principal rang the bell and agreed to give admit Ronit into the science stream. She told him, “You are exceptional to get science at 71 percent.”

Such is the grace of our Master that we can neither understand nor express enough gratitude. He is infinitely kind, loving and caring. We must recognise His leelas (divine play) and follow His teachings. We should try on our part to be humble and good representatives of our Guruji. Wherever we go and whatever we do, Mohanji’s name should rise higher and higher and spread around the globe.

i am with u 3.jpg

Jai Mohanji.

Reena Kumar, Gurgaon.

The real life experience shared above, reiterates the following.

Faith can move mountains and create miracles. The divine grace and protection of Mohanji towards those who love Him is always evident. No matter what the situation or which part of the world we are in, when we ask for help, He’s always there to protect and guide us.

Rituals to Awareness

Mohanji: Energy of Thousand Suns

Many of those who are connected to Mohanji know of His tremendous energy that can feel like sahasra sooryaya (a thousand suns), and be difficult to handle. It is hard to put a frame around the energy of someone like Mohanji who is beyond frames. He transcends ordinary human nature and thinking levels. I was very fortunate to accompany Mohanji on his first visit to Brazil, which was immediately after the trip to Machu Picchu in Peru. On  April 10, 2018, we left for Sao Paulo at noon reaching there at 8pm. During the stay in Brazil with Mohanji, I had a number of remarkable experiences in the eight days that followed. Everyday, I was witnessing His leelas (divine acts), and the miracles taking place in front of everyone, a few of which I would like to share below.

Awareness of Mohanji’s Omnipresence

I must say that this time around, I felt much more connected to Mohanji, feeling His presence even when He was not around. Early one morning as I was doing my daily sadhana (spiritual practice), I felt as if the portion of the house where Mohanji was sleeping was not attached to the building. Then I got the feeling that Mohanji had left the room and gone somewhere very far in space. I went into a state of panic, but started reciting the Mohanji Gayatri mantra, praying to Him to come back and not leave us. After an hour of prayer, I felt His presence in the room. Mohanji had returned to His room! I was experiencing this vision during sadhana (spiritual practice) and not seeing with my physical eyes.

Mohanji_Brazil_4
Mohanji’s Omni Presence

Later during breakfast that morning, I told him of my experience during sadhana (spiritual practice). He confirmed that he had indeed been busy travelling astrally. Though I had heard about His astral travel before, this was the first time I had the personal experience that He was not in the body and felt His presence when He came back.

Mohanji is omnipresent, this awareness was now clear to me.

He is always listening: Everyday Mohanji, George and I would sit together for lunch. It is usual practice for me to offer my food to Mohanji (not physically, but through prayers) before I start eating.  When I would pray mentally in this way, Mohanji would pick up something to eat from my plate and would say, “Ok, start, I have received it”.

I never realised the true meaning of this until one day as I offered my prayers and was about to start eating my meal, he said to me, “I did not receive your food; your mind was somewhere else”.  I was taken aback when I heard that because it was true that I had been distracted because my mind was partially occupied with something else. Respectfully, I asked him to repeat what he said, and he asked me, “Who do you offer food to, before you start eating?” I replied, “I offer my food to you, Father, as always”. Then I realised that I had never told him before that I always offer the food to him. That day I had not done my prayers with full attention, and so the food had not reached him. My guru bhai (brother) George who was sitting next to me, asked Mohanji, “Did you receive my food?” and Mohanji immediately replied, “Yes, I did”.

Gurubhai.jpg
George – My Guru Brother

I was not sad at that moment, because I was experiencing the moment of truth. Here was my Lord, my Bhagwan (God) in front of me, my saakshat Vishnu svaroop (the true incarnation of Lord Vishnu) telling me that although He had not received it, it was fine and gave me the slice of mango that He had in His hand. At that moment, I could sense that my ears had gone red hot as soon as I ate that mango. I couldn’t talk much, I was feeling ashamed. Overall, it was a clear indication that

Mohanji listens to you and He is always with you. 

Awareness of Supreme Consciousness in Mohanji

On our second day in Brazil, we decided to travel to Rio de Janeiro to see the statue of Christ the Redeemer. This 38m tall statue of Jesus, that stands atop Mount Corcovado, was built to counter the increasing acts of “Godlessness”. In this statue, Jesus is standing with his arms wide open as if he is ready to give everyone a big hug. To reach the statue, one has to take a cable train ride up the mountain which is a beautiful experience.

Statue the Redeemer
The Redeemer – Standing tall to remove “Godlessness” and ready to hug everyone

The initial plan was to go by car from Sao Paulo to Rio and back. However, since this involved long travel time, we decided to take a flight. We booked the plane tickets and left for the airport. However, due to heavy traffic on the way to the airport, we missed our flight. However, this gave me an opportunity for rectifying the mistake I had done while booking the tickets. I felt as if Mohanji was just saving me from more frustration due to the mistakes in ticket booking.

Not only this, I realised later that how divine beings and Gurumandala comes down to help in every act that involves Mohanji. This happens in a much subtle way, unrecognised for general public, but who is closely connected to Mohanji will be able to recognise this.

We were guided to a post office from where we could get the ticket that could take us right up to the top-level, near the statue. This post office was not in a visible place, but we had divine help with us! Though I couldn’t recognise at that point, a blessed soul (may be one of the Nath Gurus who came in disguise), took us right to the correct spot from where we can buy the ticket. Of course it was Mohanji in the first place who had guided me to approach this gentleman, amongst the big crowd in the airport. Looking back, I now realise, it was all the leela (divine Act) of Gurumandala. This gentleman himself was a visitor there who came for some official meeting and was not conversant of the local area. But he guided, lead the way right up to the ticket point, spending his precious time trying to help! Re-visualising the scene once again, where this gentleman and I were walking ahead and Mohanji slightly behind, it was as if the body guards marching ahead, clearing the way for the Master!

This was not just a lesson in humility that I learnt from Mohanji, watching him  how he was addressing people in the most humble and respectful way while  requesting information, but also I recognised (though bit later) that how Gurumandala came down to facilitate every thing.

This is just another evidence of the true stature of my Guru – Parabrahma!

I learnt a lesson: it is not merely about listening to or reading Mohanji’s teachings but also living them and recognising the subtlety.

Though this was something I knew, I had never experienced it.

When it was time to board the cable train, the girl at the counter informed us that we would reach the top around 5 PM and that it may get dark. She showed us the scene up hill on her television at the train boarding station. The whole area and the statue was fully covered in clouds. One could not see anything. Further, there was a possibility of rain which meant the possibility that the clouds may not only continue to completely obscure our view of the statue. Hearing this, both George and I turned to Mohanji. He said, “No, we will go”. He joked “We have a pact with the weather”. We knew he meant it. Without any hesitation, we got on the train. When we reached the top, it was almost 5 PM just as the girl had informed us. As expected, we saw that the statue was completely covered by clouds. Even though we were taking pictures, Christ’s statue was fully covered with clouds and we had to stop.

Communion with Nature – with compassion

At that point, Mohanji simply turned around, looked at the statue and waved his hand in the air as if to clear the clouds. It was a direct message to the clouds: “Please clear off!” As if on cue, the clouds started moving away from the statue and everyone nearby was overjoyed to see the sunshine. I stood there stunned; looking at Mohanji for whom playing with Nature was part of his leelas (divine acts).  He was talking to the clouds and they were moving around as per His instruction! It was a well-orchestrated play and the Christ in front of us (Mohanji) was conducting that play.

Assurance – Clouds have moved away

 

Mohanji wanted George to take a good picture of the view of the islands down below. He called us to that side of the hill. Once again, clouds were obscuring a clear view. Mohanji said “Just wait. It will clear now”. Suddenly, all clouds were swiftly moved to one side and the whole vision of the island and its surroundings became crystal clear. As soon as we finished taking pictures, clouds covered the view once again.
We further walked to the other corner of the hill to take in a different vista. I could see that the clouds were scurrying out of our way again – as if the clouds did not want to block the view of our Christ (Mohanji). While other people had their attention on the statue of Christ and were busy taking pictures, George and I were absorbed instead in the living Christ (Mohanji) in front of us and his leelas (divine act). Mohanji, whom I consider as Christ himself, was standing next to us, demonstrating through His leelas (divine acts) that nothing is impossible for us if we have full faith. He himself will fulfill the smallest wish of a bhakta (devotee) who has unshakeable faith.

A clear view with clear sky!

 

As we started walking downhill, rain started. Everything was picture perfect.
Mohanji often speaks of – “connection, conviction and consistency” and if we can keep them growing, His presence within us will be maximized. While gazing at the statue, Mohanji remarked that it is a reminder of the path that leads from “Rituals to Awareness”. Mohanji is always with us all the time and we should always recognise, surrender and feel gratitude.
