Miracles of faith

Natalija Mejandzieva, Macedonia

“When you have faith, I do miracles.”

-Mohanji

I have experienced happiness, love, gratitude, sadness, loneliness, confusion, acceptance and much more. This all happened in a very short time. I feel this was happening because of my decision to serve Mohanji.

How could I explain, and where should I start, because words are not enough. I am truly blessed to have had these experiences. When I started writing, I couldn’t stop, so I wanted to share one experience that was very meaningful for me.

“When you have faith, I can do miracles.” This sentence was ringing in my ears. I finally felt what it truly meant.

Two days before I started serving, my father had a heart attack. When he called to tell me, I felt calm and even tried to calm him down on the phone while he was breathing heavily. Then my mind got in the way, and all of these questions came up: Why am I being calm? What if he dies? What’s going to happen after that? Being an only child of divorced parents, I often had fears of losing them.

He called again and said he would be transferred to the capital city (where I am working) to have an urgent procedure. Understanding the seriousness of the situation, I felt that fear of losing him. I tried to sound calm on the phone.

I finished work and bought some things he needed in the hospital. They wouldn’t let me see him because he was in the Intensive Care department. With the grace of Mohanji, the way opened, and I got to be the exception to see my father. When I got there, they had already started with the procedure. I had to wait outside until they were done. 

Those 20 minutes I waited, I prayed to Mohanji to be with my father, guide him and take care of him. I surrendered my doubts and fears completely at his feet. I started connecting to him, felt him in my heart and found peace inside. I felt the calmness because, deeply, I knew everything would be okay. I had complete faith that all would be fine.

And everything was fine. My father was looking refreshed as he got up after rest. He then told me that the doctor said his chances of survival were 10 %. Everything happened in the right second. I wished him a happy birthday because he had started living his second life.

I felt so much love, support and gratitude. I feel like Mohanji was here all the time, holding my hand and giving me guidance and directions. I have never experienced this kind of stability. I felt like I was lying in his hands with my eyes closed, trusting him completely. I will remember this experience always. He is in my heart, and I am very grateful for everything he does for me daily.

I am grateful for the awareness and decision to share this with people. I am not so open, and I need so much time to start opening up. I feel this flowing so naturally, and I really want to share it with people. That day a few times, I thought – I want other people to experience this feeling I have.

Thank you so much for your grace and love.

Let your faith heal you!

By Elham, USA

Mohanji’s grace has always flowed in my life since I met him in 2014. This testimonial is one of many blessings that he showered on me, and I will cherish all his blessings for the rest of my life and can’t ask for more. Surrendering this testimonial at Mohanji’s lotus feet.

In April 2022, Mohanji was coming to the USA after four years and this was very exciting news for me. In the past couple of years, due to Covid, we could not travel to meet him. I could not wait and started counting down every day. As always, when it comes to meeting Mohanji, challenges will start happening, and to me, it’s a testing time of faith and conviction. It’s not easy to reach Mohanji; it’s not that we want to meet him. Pure intention is needed, and then, by his grace, barriers and obstacles are removed. 

Due to some circumstances, it was impossible to participate in the USA retreat, which meant we could meet him only for two days in Sedona! I was deeply sad about losing this precious chance. A few days went by with sadness, plus tears kept coming, and then I started surrendering to him. I told myself I would enjoy and cherish every moment of these two days to make them eternal moments and won’t stay in sadness. The closer we got to the events, the more opportunities to meet Mohanji were coming up! We learned about a fruit tree plantation in Phoenix, a satsang in LA, and later on, two more fruit tree plantations in San Francisco! WoW! Grace, Grace, Grace!

I need to give a little history about my health. I used to have hypothyroidism for more than 20 years, healed by Mohanji’s miraculous touch in October 2019, and I already wrote about that. Also, I have had two herniated and degenerated neck discs since 2015 due to some injuries. Hope nobody is familiar with such pain, but it can be very paralyzing. I had pain every day, from low to extreme pain, changing based on my activities or even mood. Anything could trigger that. Any simple daily chores were painful. This feeling that my nerves were getting smashed was there all the time. 

Treatments didn’t work, and I had to go for surgery, but I was not interested in such an approach. Sometime back, very severe pain started and lasted for five continuous days, nonstop from waking up to sleep, and no pain killer helped. I was wondering if it’s karmic, and I need to go through it to accept it more easily. I asked Mohanji, and he just said, “I understand.” Then he said, “Get help from Homeopathy and Ayurveda.” That’s it! The pain stopped completely in less than a couple of hours, and I never experienced such high intensity of pain anymore! 

Finding Homeopathic and Ayurvedic doctors in my area took time, but finally, after some time, I started taking those medications. It was helpful on the pain level, but still, the pain was coming and making me slow in my tasks and even affecting my eyesight. 

The time came to travel to meet Mohanji. My husband Farshad and I traveled to Phoenix by driving, and even though the week ending the trip was not easy, and I had pain every day, when we started traveling I didn’t feel any pain during those times that I was driving. Driving was one of the pain triggers.

We went to the airport to welcome Mohanji in Phoenix, and it was incredible to have his heavenly hugs! Immediately you feel freshness, love, peace and happiness. I was floating in the air and couldn’t believe that finally, we had met again. 

There was a fruit tree plantation event in Phoenix, and it was so hot that the sun was shining strongly. Mohanji was standing there, and George, who was in front of him, looked at Mohanji and said it would be good to have some clouds! We all laughed and knew what that meant. Mohanji smiled, and a few minutes later, he pointed at the sky with a finger and said something. Shortly clouds moved in front of the sun, and a very pleasant breeze started coming! 

I was enjoying each moment, and more grace was coming my way. In Sedona, a couple of times, we could be with Mohanji in his accommodation by his grace and invitation and also through my lovely Milica, for which I’m so grateful. His accommodation was just five minutes from our hotel, and being this close to his stay was another joy. For me, it was the first time to see him outside of programs. He was sitting on the sofa, so simple and silent, seemingly on his phone, but who knows where he is working and whom he is helping. This mind won’t know. 

We had the blessing to massage his feet which was a long-time wish, and he made it happen, and this was our gain, not that he needed a massage or anything else from us. He was fulfilling wishes one by one! I’m sure it’s not about me only; others also experienced this too; Mohanji gives love to all without any expectations, but the mind may forget and expect more from him if we are not grateful for what has been given before. 

In Sedona, Mohanji started having severe coughs. On the second day, it increased so much during his speeches. My heart was wrenching with each cough. Such sudden changes in Mohanji’s health were a sign that he took something from someone or even many people onto his own body. I couldn’t bear to see him in pain even though he does not suffer from pain.

Then I closed my eyes and went into a kind of meditative mode but could hear him speaking. I could hear some words bolder and louder. I heard him speaking about the connection and devotion of Hanumanji to Lord Ram. Then I heard these words, “Let your faith heal you.” It went deep into my mind, but I didn’t know the story behind those words. On the same day, I heard this quote from Christopher in a conversation, and I got more curious to know where it came from, but I didn’t ask, and it slipped from my mind. 

Later on, it came out that Mohanji took a severe lung ailment from an old lady at her final stage of life. She had a deep wish to live longer and had desires to fulfill. She prayed deeply, and as always, Mohanji answered sincere prayers. He says, “I don’t have any choice.” He is so innocent. These coughs and discomfort in breathing were there till the end of his travel to the USA. Even though it only reduced gradually, he didn’t stop anything, any plan, any program or interview. He was determined and selfless.  

Even though we didn’t have any plans of going to San Francisco, and it seemed impossible with my husband’s job, everything fell into place, and we could travel there with less than two days’ planning and stay in the same hotel with Mohanji. Such grace! 

One of the plans in Phoenix was to visit a Sai Baba temple which got cancelled due to lack of time, and I had the wish to go to the Sai Temple with Mohanji. In SF, without planning in advance, we visited a very beautiful Sai Temple with him! He fulfilled another wish. It’s like he has thousands of ears and eyes!

There were two fruit tree plantation events in SF. It was amazing to witness many people who came to express their love and respect for him. Nobody wanted to lose the chance to hug him or touch his feet. After SF, we all headed to LA. For us, it was a great blessing that he was coming to our city, where we met him for the first time in October 2014. He hadn’t come back here to the West of the USA until this time, after more than seven years!  

Another grace! I came to know that the house that Mohanji was staying in LA with his team was only 20 minutes away from where we live, and this, in the vast LA, means a lot and doesn’t happen accidentally! I was unsure if I could meet him there and not be a burden, and I prayed to him, “You are here just 20 minutes away from me, and I still look at your picture!” He heard my heart. 

He showered grace on me and said, “When I’m here, you can come every day, and you can come wherever we go.” I was flying! There’s no limit to his kindness! And it was amazing that every evening he would say, see you tomorrow morning. His unconditional love has the power to melt hearts. He is the rarest gem on Earth. He doesn’t belong to anyone. Nobody can own him, and he belongs to the Universe, to every being who seeks help, hope and light. It is a perfect delusion to think anyone can own Mohanji. As the Masters have said, “Mohanji is a friend of the Universe.”

It was the best time of my life, sitting and looking at him, walking with him, having the chance to bring a cup of water or such things and once he ate from what I made! So many wishes came true only by his grace.

Satsang in LA was amazing and so powerful. Almost all participants were meeting Mohanji for the first time and listening to him with all focus. After the satsang, he didn’t think about his health condition even though it was very cold, standing for such a long time and giving so much time to people to come one by one and talk to him, ask questions, sign books or receive his blessings. 

With his presence, LA was different, the crazy heavy traffic became so smooth, and cars moved out of our way. Everything was bright and shining. Nobody was out of his eyesight. When Farshad was coming after work to meet him, Mohanji asked if he had eaten and kept saying, “Eat something”. He is always working on people and, most of the time, in some ways that the mind can’t understand. 

Once, when I was overwhelmed with emotions and tears were rolling down, without looking at me, very calmly, he said, “Elham, have tea.” I said, “I’m fine, Father, thank you.” After a few minutes again he repeated and I said the same! At that moment, it came to me, what was I doing? Why do I keep refusing! There is a reason for what he says, always. He repeated that for the third time, and this time I said yes immediately and got tea, and after just a couple of sips, I felt so calm, no tears, not emotional anymore and something had been washed away from my heart! This was a repeated lesson for me that never resist when Guru tells you to do something; even if the mind says something else, just follow. 

Even though I was waking up early, going to sleep very late and was doing so much driving, I was not feeling tired and felt so fresh and energetic. Those dreamy days went by so fast, and Mohanji and the team flew out. After Mohanji flew out, we hosted Deviji for a few days, and as always, being with Devi and her energy is incredible! So dynamic and happy! 

After all those intense energies and everything that happened in that short span of time, everything needed to settle down. Soon one day, again, I remembered the quote and asked Farshad what Mohanji said about it. Farshad explained to me, and this is the story if some of you don’t know like me. 

When a person approached Jesus Christ for healing, Jesus asked him one question. Do you believe I can do it? The person said yes. Then Jesus said, “Let your faith heal you.” 

This was very meaningful to me. I already experienced healing by Mohanji for my thyroid, and I knew he had the power to do any healing. Then I started realizing something more and more every day. At first, my mind could not believe it, but I was sure after a few days. There was no more pain in my neck! It is impossible that I don’t have any pain within a couple of days, and now I do not have pain even though Mohanji is not here physically!

A few days later, I heard Mohanji had a stiff neck! I understood what that meant. A stiff neck is something I’m very familiar with after many years of neck issues. I was sad that he took this onto himself; it was a very strange moment as I was happy that there was no pain when I heard this. 

I was thinking nobody does such an act of love, without even mentioning it, without any propaganda, very silent, very humble. If you ask him about such things, ask whether he has done that; he will only smile at you. You never get an answer because Mohanji is so humble. Mohanji always practices being insignificant. Sometimes he even gives the credit for a miracle or healing that he has done to someone else. This could be a test of ego for the person too. 

It’s not possible to thank him. Words are so small in front of such greatness. I felt I should write and share this as a way to express my gratitude, and it may reach someone who needs it. People often get many things from Mohanji, either healing or material wishes, but sometimes they don’t say at all. Maybe they think that they might lose it, or sometimes the mind manipulates the experience, and they think it happened by itself or it’s because of their hard work. 

Acknowledging the source opens the door for more grace to flow. It also helps deepen the connection and to increase the faith. It took me time to write this testimonial, so meanwhile, I started sharing it verbally with whomever I was talking to, and I noticed I felt even more improvements in my wellbeing. Through this healing, the quality of my life increased so much, and this is priceless to me, and every morning I wake up with gratitude to Mohanji. Thank you, Father.

I humbly surrender my whole existence at the feet of my Lord, Mohanji Baba; always at his lotus feet.

An enigma called Mohanji

by Surya Sujan, Kerala

Mohanji is a mysterious phenomenon. One may call him an enigma or a wonder. It is a great feeling to recollect our school life – playing and enjoying together. Those intimate moments of togetherness are great blessings indeed. I am sure it will be remembered for ages to come.

We studied together in 1978, and it took 37 long years to renew that relationship. Now my old classmate (Mohanji) is not only a friend but also my brother and Guru. Since meeting him again in May 2017, we find time to see or talk to each other, even if it is just for a moment.

Mohanji unexpectedly called me on 3rd May 2022 and asked to meet in person. I went to his house at Palakkad on the 4th and spent time together with his parents – Amma and Achan – which made me really happy. Mohanji reached late that night and enthusiastically called out, “Surya”, when he saw me. Extending his hands, he embraced me tightly and poured lots of energy into me. He then retired for the night and said he would see me in the morning.

When I woke up the following day, Mohanji was already awake, sipping tea. While Mohanji, Achan, Madhu and I were talking, Mohanji suddenly said that his thigh muscles were cramping. I used to assist my husband when he complained of muscle pain in his legs. So I thought I could help Mohanji. I sat behind Mohanji to assist in lifting his cramped muscles. Mohanji’s legs were as firm as granite. Seeing Mohanji in this position, I felt as though it was Lord Hanumanji in a loin cloth ready on his mission to Lanka. I closed my eyes and started chanting the Hanuman Chalisa spontaneously. I remembered a similar experience from 2014 mentioned by Rajesh Kamath in his book ‘Miraculous days with Mohanji’. Similarly, in 2018, other devotees noticed Mohanji’s lips and cheeks swelling up, appearing like Hanumanji. This had happened as he was about to visit the Sai temple. (click here to read about this incident)

Everything indeed is Mohanji’s leelas. This showed that Hanumanji still lives. He is a Chiranjeevi (immortal) and will live forever. I was still in awe on how my friend gave me this realisation through this beautiful vision. If this wasn’t enough, my friend was ready to give me an another surprise!

I was supposed to leave by 8:30 am to the station, and Mohanji was to leave for Shirdi temple at the same time. Mohanji asked me why I was leaving so early. I replied that I had no other option. After this, Mohanji went in to shower. Achan and I were sitting on the sofa. Suddenly I received a text message that the train would reach Palakkad only by 11.47 am. So I ended up accompanying Mohanji to the Sai temple!

It was all Baba’s leela and a sweet gift from my friend as a blessed ending to this visit!

Everything is always exactly as it should be

By: Jelena Raicevic, Serbia

Translated by: Maja Otovic

I have witnessed many miracles since Mohanji came into my life, and especially since I took his hand and learned to feel that grip in all the turbulences of life. And just when I think that nothing can surprise me, something stronger than ever shakes me and triggers an avalanche of emotions in me, blurs the senses and stirs the mind. These storms are now very brief and quite intensive. Like electroshocks, they reset the system and further sharpen the receptors for information coming from space outside my mental body (mind, intellect and ego). 

One such electroshock was a retreat in Divcibare in 2021. Unlike the previous retreats that had their introduction, culmination and conclusion, this one was without rules, completely unpredictable, and the conclusion it left was very difficult for me to accept. Namely, it was the moment when Mohanji let me know that I should detach myself from the attachment to his physical being and sharpen telepathic communication because any communication with him in the physical body was slowing down my telepathic connection. I knew that moment would come one day, but I assumed that I would be completely ready for it when it did. And in my estimation, that was definitely not the spring of 2021, but it was so, according to Mohanji. 

After the retreat, my husband and I returned to Belgrade. I was supposed to start working, but my suffering for the above mentioned and the powerful processes that began in the retreat were not allowing me to do so. I stayed at home for a few more days in order for the emotions to settle down, and they were the most diverse emotions indeed. Some of them were so foreign to me on the conscious plane and were hard to accept, but as the resistance was becoming stronger, so did the suffering. I had no other choice but to slowly surrender and accept with great faith that, in the end, it was the best possible scenario for me. And as time worked wonders, peace, understanding, and my daily routine were slowly returning to my life.

Through social media, I found out that Mohanji stayed longer in Belgrade, and I felt occasional bursts of happiness because we were in the same city. Once, as I was going through the pictures of the Mohanji family on FB, a thought went through my head, “If I could only cast a glance at you before you leave!” The thought was still flowing when I heard Mohanji’s voice, “I’ll see you tonight!”

I looked at the clock. It was around 17h, and my husband and I were supposed to get ready for the meditation scheduled for 18:15h at the Lotus Yoga Center. After that, we had agreed with our best friends to take a stroll around Zemun because the evenings at the beginning of June were wonderful. And it was our wedding anniversary that day.

Um… it’s not that I didn’t believe the voice that I heard, but the logic said: what are the odds that you will run into your Guru in a city of two million in the late evening hours!? You have to agree, not very big. So, I quickly suppressed that voice, considering it an echo of my desire, and proceeded with my plan for the evening. 

And the evening went according to plan. Optimal temperature, dusk, Danube, Zemun promenade, all this dispelled the fear of the corona and drove people outside, so Zemun really looked magnificent. It reminded me of my first encounter with this small town, back in the 90s, when, also one June evening, it dispelled the fear and horror of the wars in the Balkans with its beauty, and I thought: “I want to live here! This is my spot…”

Sunset had already passed when someone suggested that we could have a drink, “Let’s go up to Gardos, in the pizzeria Taurunum, because of the beautiful view of the Danube!” We all agreed that we could walk to it, and if we were lucky enough to find a place for so many of us, then great.

My friend and I were a little behind the rest of the company that had already arrived and entered the restaurant. The two of us were standing in front of the restaurant and talking about something when my best friend ran out visibly emotional and said, “You can never guess who is here!” She paused for a moment and added, “Mohanji!”

I remembered the beginning of the evening and the words, “I’ll see you tonight!” My heart started pounding like crazy. You know that moment when everything stops. When time, space, mind, intellect freeze, only you exist. I walked into the restaurant and saw a large table filled with a diverse group of Mohanji family, observing this strange encounter visibly happy and surprised. I felt the energy of Mohanji’s presence, so familiar to me that seems to thicken the air in the room.

Mohanji himself stood at the table and asked with a wide smile, “Well, how is it possible that we met?” In my excitement, the only thing I could say was, “I knew it,” and to hug him, infinitely grateful for this timeless experience. He asked, “Did you!?” But those words were unnecessary and superfluous. All the most important things took place on another level where everything is clear, where there is no doubt and probability theory, where a strong, sincere desire of a pure heart is realized at the speed of light.

After greeting and taking pictures, we parted, and my companions and I sat down at the nearby free table. I tried to get involved in the conversation that was going on, but it wasn’t easy. I looked over my shoulder several times in the direction of the Mohanji family table to see if it all really happened. Yes, they were there! Then I looked at the tables around the restaurant. People were sitting and talking casually, with no idea that they were in the field of someone who transcended the boundaries of everything they knew. Someone who changes your life, even if you only lightly touch as you pass by each other.

I turned towards my husband; we looked at each other and laughed at the same time: “If these people only knew…!”

Shirdi experiences – part 1

By a Mohanji follower

When I began writing this testimonial, I thought I must begin at the point when I learnt about the retreat in Shirdi with Mohanji and the kriya initiation. Then I thought – no, this tale had actually started a few months earlier. Well, over a year before, actually, when I’d come across a blog in which I had read about Mohanji for the first time and seen his pictures. No, in truth, it began years ago if I had to link up the moments neatly. And then I realized I might have to write a booklet of sorts to narrate the entire story from the start, even though it consisted mainly of very simple moments. 

A prayer answered

So, after extensive debates with myself, which involved some unnecessary name-calling on both sides, I’ve decided to begin from a point in mid-2021, when I started to read seriously about Mohanji, listen to his talks and read his books. 

Every single thing I read or heard resonated very deeply with me, and I started to feel an intense devotion towards Mohanji. An instinctive belief took root that I had finally found my Guru. 

I prayed for a chance to meet Mohanji in person. In June 2021, I received training in Consciousness Kriya, and from that point, I was also eagerly waiting to be initiated into Kriya by Mohanji. Empowered 1.0 helped deepen the faith that Mohanji was my Guru, and my wish to meet the Master increased greatly.

The powerful saint of Shirdi

I had always believed in Sai Baba, but until I came across Mohanji’s talks on the internet, I had not known much about his life. But Mohanji’s powerful talks on Sai Baba encouraged me to purchase the Sai Satcharitra. By the end of the first reading, I felt that the entire book was a very powerful, spiritually cleansing mantra.

I did the parayan of the sacred book a few times, and each time, I would feel that something had changed for the better within me by the end of the reading. Also, if I had done the parayan for any particular reason, my wish would be fulfilled, or if I was facing any emotional/mental turmoil, I would receive insights that would soothe and calm me down. I encouraged some of my loved ones to read the Sai Satcharitra, and they too benefited tremendously and developed a deep faith in Sai Baba. 

There is a temple near my home, and many deities are worshipped there. One of them is Sai Baba. Over the past 3-4 months, every time I visited the temple, I would tell Baba – “Please call me to Shirdi” or “Please let me come to Shirdi.” At the same time, I was also praying for an opportunity to meet Mohanji and seek his blessings. 

May be an image of 1 person and text that says "mohanji.org"

When I first heard that Mohanji would be coming to India, I was thrilled beyond measure and decided that I would travel to whichever part of India he was visiting. And then I received the next message that he was going to be in Shirdi. It felt as though the universe had opened up a big bag of blessings and poured them over me. 

A surprising sight

I was still grinning widely at the message about Mohanji’s visit to Shirdi when my mother called me. For many years now, she has followed the practice of giving freshly cooked rice to crows in the noon before we have our lunch. Usually, my father offers food to the crows. But he was busy that noon, so my mother asked me to do the needful. My mind was full of Shirdi and Mohanji as I carried the rice and emptied it in the designated spot. Two crows came and sat a little far away and began cawing. Then a raven flew up and perched near the rice. Immediately, another raven joined the first one and then a third one came flying.

I was taken aback because it is very rare to spot even one raven in the area. In fact, in the ten years or so that we have been living in the house, I’d seen ravens just once or twice before, and at the most, I’d seen two together. And this noon, three of them had appeared all of a sudden. I was startled for a minute. Then, for some reason, I found myself smiling and assuring the birds, “Yes, I’m going to Shirdi.” If anyone had seen me at that point, I have no doubt I would have been made to undergo a serious psychiatric evaluation.

Anyway, the first item on my to-do list was to apply for leave from the office. I remembered that a colleague had applied for leave on 17th December, the scheduled date of Kriya initiation. My heart sank for a moment since it meant that I would probably not be granted leave as we were short-staffed at that point. Then I vaguely remembered that she had posted something about that leave in our group chat just 2-3 days ago. I quickly checked the chat and saw that she had postponed her leave to the 20th from the 17th; another blessing. 

A request for grace

But there was one more issue. As per my menstrual cycle, I was to get my periods on the 18th or a day earlier. It’s part of my personal code that I do not visit temples/chant mantras/touch any spiritual objects if my periods are going on. The idea of visiting Shirdi and not being able to take Sai Baba’s darshan was unbearable. I became so anxious that I started doing a parayan of the Satcharitra with a request to Sai Baba that I should be able to take his darshan.

But then, on the second day of the parayan, I happened to watch a video in which Mohanji was talking about Sai Baba, and he’d said that we shouldn’t ask Baba for anything and should just surrender to his will. I felt guilty after hearing that, so I mentally asked Sai Baba to forget that I had asked him for anything before doing the parayan. I completed the remaining days of the parayan without having any prayer in mind. 

I think it was probably after I had completed the parayan or was close to doing so that I saw a dream one night. It was a long, convoluted one, but one moment of the dream was crystal clear, and I still recall it vividly. I saw Baba’s luminous form sitting on the stone, and he told me something to the effect that, “You were angry because you were kept away from saints such as Swami Samarth of Akkalkot. But I’m with you now.”

The dream moved me intensely because until I’d met Mohanji, I’d expressed my anger towards the divine many times over the years over a feeling that my prayers for a Guru were being ignored. But I’ve understood now that prayers for spiritual growth don’t go unheard. The dream also alleviated my anxieties related to the trip.

Was it really -? It was. But was it?

On the morning of 17th December, I left home at about six in the morning and waited outside for the hired cab to arrive. Then I learnt that the driver had parked in the wrong place. After giving him the directions, I stared impatiently at the turn in the road from which the cab would be arriving. It was dark, and in the dim illumination of the street lights, I saw an elderly man dressed in an orange/saffron kurta and white dhoti with a bag slung on a shoulder walking on that road. He was quite far from me, and there wasn’t sufficient light, so I couldn’t see his face. As I watched him, I idly remembered the experiences of Sai Baba devotees that I had read about and heard in the previous months and how Baba often appears in the guise of an old man. 

The thought had just popped up in my head when the old man glanced in my direction, and while continuing to walk, he raised his right hand as if in a friendly greeting. It surprised me, and I turned quickly because I was sure his wave had been meant for someone behind me. A middle-aged couple walked on the road behind me, but they seemed engrossed in a conversation. I turned again swiftly. The old man was still walking, he was still looking in my direction, and his hand was still raised. Totally confused, I stared at him blankly until a wall hid him from view.

The cab arrived, and the astonishment over the incident with the old man was forgotten briefly. Later, when I thought about it again, I felt a doubt that I had probably hyped up the entire thing in my mind. Maybe the old man had really just waved at someone further down on the road behind me. But in my heart, there has been no space for any doubt. It remains peacefully convinced that the unbelievable happened…  

Again, my mind is holding up a huge placard with doubt as I type this, but my heart is waving it off with a peaceful smile. I surrender both at Mohanji’s feet. 

Stranded and confused

I was to get down at a particular spot in Thane, where I was to meet with four wonderful souls and travel together to Shirdi in a different vehicle. All of us were eagerly waiting to meet Mohanji for the first time.

I reached the designated spot by 6:45 am but learnt that the cab that was to take us to Shirdi had taken another route and stopped at a different place. Since I was completely unfamiliar with the area, it was difficult for me to understand the directions given by the driver of the other cab, and somehow, the location sent on the phone too wasn’t working properly.

To give you an idea of my situation, I was standing on a narrow service road, close to the foot of a major flyover, and vehicles were speeding past. There was no one around whom I could ask for directions, and to get a rickshaw, I would either have had to walk to a signal that was about 15 minutes away with my heavy bag. Or I would have had to walk for a while in the other direction, cross the road and wait for a rickshaw and just pray that the driver would be familiar with the area and would know the new meeting spot. The sky was just lightening, and there wasn’t anyone around whom I could ask for guidance. 

Unexpected help arrives

Just then, a rickshaw stopped in front of me, and the driver got down. He asked me where I wanted to go with a lot of kindness. I was hugely relieved and got him to speak to the cab driver. The auto driver told me he knew precisely where the place was and said it was about 6-7 kilometers away. He said he had been heading in the opposite direction but had spotted me standing on the service road with a lost look and had taken a U-turn (and also broken a traffic rule, I think) to reach me just to guide me about the route I needed to take. 

I asked him if he could take me to the right spot. He refused apologetically because he would have had to travel on the wrong way down a major road to do that. He told me to walk to the nearest signal, gave me clear instructions about what I needed to tell the driver of whichever auto I would find, and told me about some landmarks too. I thanked him sincerely, but I was still feeling quite confused as I picked up my bag and started to walk to the signal. 

But the auto driver suddenly changed his mind and asked me to stop. He said he would drop me at the location but would charge a higher-than-usual amount. I was so grateful that I almost told him that I would pay him double of that! 

A silent guardian

The driver of the cab that had brought me to Thane had not stirred while all this was going on. He had told me that he had recently moved to Mumbai from Bangalore and was very unfamiliar with the city, which is why I hadn’t thought of asking for his help. And I’d assumed he had continued to wait there because he was talking on the phone or was probably resting. But as soon as I got into the rickshaw, he drove off, and I realized only then that he’d stayed back just to ensure my safety because of the isolated nature of the spot where I was standing.

It felt as though kindness was pouring on me from all sides. The auto driver dropped me at the right place without needing to check with the other driver again or asking anyone for directions. Before he left, I told him gratefully that Baba had sent him to help me, and I truly believe that. 

Eventually, after a pleasant journey, we reached Shirdi in the afternoon, and after a short rest, arrived at the venue for Kriya initiation.

Empowered 2.0 – Part 2

A life saved
by Sabyasachi Rath, USA

December 7, 2021. It was a break day in Mohanji’s Empowered series. For the past three days, I had been absorbing Mohanji’s wisdom. Each time I listened to his recording (for logistical and logical reasons, I couldn’t attend the live sessions), I would feel like lying down by the middle of the recording as the energy would be too intense for me.

Back to December 7. It was a momentous day for me as I live now to write this piece. On this fateful day, I had driven to drop my daughter at her volleyball club and was returning home with my son in the back seat of my favourite Prius. At around 6.43 pm, I crashed into another car.

I had no choice; I had no clue or reaction time. A big fat Hyundai SUV crashed into my petite Prius. All I had done was follow the rules and cross an intersection while the light was green at the given speed limit of 40 mph. The young boy in the Hyundai decided to take a chance to turn left and rammed straight into me! WHAM!

It felt like a train ran over me! It was a very high impact, at least so I felt. My guru’s grace saved me. The first thought that came to me was my son’s well being. He had let out a small scream of pain but seemed fine. I felt I passed out for a few seconds and was dizzy afterwards. I felt my entire body was paralyzed. I kept chanting Mohanji’s mantra slowly and deliberately; it gave me strength. Slowly I could feel my legs and hands, but my upper body was still paralyzed. Some strangers came running and told me to stay awake. The driver of the Hyundai that crashed into me also came over and apologized, stating it was his fault (I agreed). The kind strangers called my wife and 911 (the emergency hotline). I kept chanting.

In another 5-10 mins, the police and ambulance took over. They put my neck in a cast and situated me in the ambulance. My wife was strong as ever and was able to take my son, who appeared relatively uninjured, home. She told me that Mohanji would take care of me. It was a painful journey to the hospital, with my body aching in pain each time we drove over a bump. Finally, we reached the emergency room of Northwest hospital where I was admitted. I was able to walk and talk, so I was put on ‘hold’ to be seen, as there were more serious patients. It was a test of patience, and my close friend Raj was able to come and give me company in a place where no attendants were allowed due to Covid rules (another sign of grace!).

Meanwhile, my wife took my son to another hospital for a checkup, and he was cleared of any injuries! It was indeed a blessing that at least 10-15 friends could come to the hospital with her and give her comfort.

I was seen in another couple of hours, administered a pain killer, and then taken for X-rays and CT scans. By midnight, the results came and showed no injury to the spine or bones. That was a huge relief. A pure sign of grace! It seemed like the perfect injury had been planned for me; a majestic bump with minimal effects. By early morning, I was discharged honourably and sent home. In fact, I was able to do my Kriya practice in the hospital ER with relative ease!

I live (in pain temporarily) to write this day. I later came to know that my lovely healer Vidya was able to do Mai-Tri while I was in the emergency room. My healing continues, and grace continues to flow unlimited.

I love you Mohanji!

Gratitude for Grace

By Mohanji Foundation South Africa

“When eating fruit, remember the one who planted the tree.”- Vietnamese Proverb.

It has been a difficult trek to get to the fruit, but as we enjoy the sweet nectar of the fruit as a team, we have immense gratitude for all those who helped us plant the tree.

Our journey to find land as Mohanji Foundation South Africa (MFSA) started in June 2016.

Our beloved Guru Mohanji, who is the inspiration, driving force and power behind our every action, visited South Africa in June 2016. He gifted us a substantial sum of cash which was a seed donation for this project. Thus, the seed was planted.

Sulosh Pillay and Roy Naidoo were a few of our very first benefactors for this project, each giving us a substantial sum of money to give our fundraising some momentum. Their donations inspired us, and we were able to start fundraising in earnest. Maheshwari Mohanji and her family led a wonderful “Buy a Brick” fundraiser, bringing in funds and motivating us even further.

It was with much excitement and huge hearts that we reached for the heavens. We viewed many properties way out of our price range from Knysna to Limpopo, hoping and praying that some huge benefactor would believe in our mission. Yugen Naidoo drove across the country to view properties and submit proposal after proposal to the team.

In 2016, we had a team consisting of Keshnie Pillay, Sulosh Pillay, Yugen Naidoo, Dineshran Naidoo and Nishal Mahadeo, who all flew to Port Elizabeth at their cost to view properties. Over three days, they drove the length and breadth of the Eastern Cape looking for a property. Their sheer dedication was inspiring.

Swami Bhakthananda went to many different prominent business people to canvas our project. He would come back dejected each time, but he would start again the very next day with even more determination.

It was not meant to be as the Universe meant for us to work really hard and feel the pinch of every earned cent. We had to squeeze our egos into place and go out to ask sponsors and devotees for money. Many of you reached deep into your pockets to help us with whatever you could spare. Many of you worked tirelessly to support this project in kind and with your blessings. Each cent and each blessing has brought us to this point where we can call a piece of land our own.

Our Shirdi Sai Murthi arrived in SA in February 2019. We were super excited, and He was stored at Swami Bhakthananda’s home, which is also the Dattatapovan Ashram in Westville. Swamiji had sleepless nights worrying about keeping Shirdi Sai in a box and went out of his way to look at land for constructing the Temple for Sai. Dozens of prospective sites were viewed by Swamiji and his team consisting of Nameshri Maharaj, Dhiren Naidoo, Prathiba Singh, Bhavika Amrathlall, Nazeema Botha and Ajay Singh.

Many others also helped search, and it will probably take us a few pages to name them all. This shows the power of what can happen when a group of like-minded and focused people come together for a higher cause. They not only looked for land, but they also spent endless hours raising funds. Each step they took, lead us closer to the goal we have achieved today.

In June 2019, we discovered an abandoned Temple site in Northdene. We were convinced that this was the one!!! We visited the site, did prayers, and Swami Bhakthananda spent many days clearing the area around the temple site. We followed all channels to see how we could purchase the property, but we found that the land was now in the hands of the Government. We applied through the correct channels to acquire the land and were disillusioned when it was held up in claims lodged for the land. This went on for many years, and we still held hope.

In February 2021, we were given an ultimatum at the Global Summit. Get your act together, or else Shirdi Sai has to move to another location where He can be installed. We all got onto the project with full force. Ami Hughes, Lakshmi Mohanananda, Shaloshini Naidoo, Keshnie Pillay, together with Swami Bhakthananda spent hours online together searching for a property while Swami Bhakthananda and his team would view the property for suitability. Shaloshini spent many hours documenting all the sites searched and included a feasibility analysis.

After many searches, we found a great piece of land in the Stanger area. Swamiji was ill but still made the trip to view the land with his team. This land was not easily accessible, and he didn’t like the very bad access roads. He was very disappointed, but light flooded in, and grace flowed. The estate agent said he might have something else for us. We dared hope that this would be the right one, and it was. Despite viewing a few more properties (one lovingly arranged by Keshnie Pillay), we decided on the 12-hectare piece of land, which we now call our own.

Once the team made the decision to purchase on 17 March 2021, it was a back and forth for Swamiji to get the paperwork all done. He followed up on every document and made sure that it was submitted on time. The paperwork was thus completed, and the first payment was made on 14 April 2021.

With scarcely enough to pay for the first payment, we were now back to worrying as the second payment was due by July 2021. A few generous donors came through, one from our board itself, and we managed to get the funds for the second and final payment.

On 03 June 2021, the second payment was made, and we breathed a sigh of relief. We were almost there. On 06 July 2021, the transfer was lodged, and on 09 July 2021, the transfer was final. This was pure grace, as anyone who lives in SA would tell you that this usually takes months. The lawyer had also told us that this would take up to 3 months. Its only Mohanji’s grace that flowed and fast-tracked it all.

We now could not wait to have the title deed in our hands. On the blessed occasion of Ganesha Chathurthi and the birthday of Sri Pada Sri Vallabha, we got the news that the title deed was ready for collection.

We had a time frame of a week to collect the title deed, and Swamiji was away for the week, so he asked that the team collect the title deed. This was done on 16 September 2021. After collecting the title deed, we went to revisit our land, and we were surprised to see that a once fully dried-up stream was now actively flowing, although relatively small, through the entire property. We looked at this as even more grace flowing into our project.

This project could not be possible without the efforts of every team member of MFSA, Swamiji and his team at Dattatapovan Ashram and every single one of you. This collective power is what got us here, and we bow in gratitude to each of you.

We wish to thank the following people (in alphabetic order) who we have on record as having contributed to this project. We may miss many of you in this list as there were no references in many of the deposits. We also wish to thank all those nationally and internationally who support our programs. Our success is due to your consistent efforts.

We still have a long and exciting journey to complete. To the incoming board and project team, we bless you with strength and empowerment to see this project to final completion. We express our thanks to Mr Duggal and the global management team for all the guidance and advice over the past weeks, enabling us to maintain our momentum.

Through our many storms and trials, we have made it past a huge hurdle. When the power of intention is strong, and there is purity in our actions, we can achieve more than we anticipated. Please do keep connected with us for more developments with this project.

We lay this project and all its successes at the feet of our Guru Mohanji.

Receiving Grace

By Lai Siong Chai, UK

Open to receiving Grace – My journey to the Festival of Consciousness in Serbia.

On my return to the UK from Serbia, when driving me to the airport, Monika reminded me, “You have to be open to receive.” I was contemplating on what she said, if I open up to others, equally, I will be open to receive whatever comes to me, including grace.  And I realized my whole journey to Serbia was indeed filled with Mohanji’s grace.

Three retreats happened in the Balkans, but my worries about the pandemic stopped me from even thinking of travelling abroad. When I saw the first Facebook post of the Festival of Consciousness, I was amazed! This was something I had thought in my mind after attending the International Yoga Festival 2019 in the UK. “We need our own festival (Mohanji’s festival).” Now it had manifested! And I heard some of the UK families would be there. 

I started to check flights to Belgrade from the airport near me, but most of the fares were too expensive for me. I was upset and continued checking; time was short because many things needed to be prepared before flying in the time of a pandemic. Booking a PCR Covid test within 48 hours of travel, Covid antigen test before departure and a PCR Covid test on Day-2 after return, passenger locator form, etc…. Many new rules and much more money was needed in order to travel! After a week’s time, I still couldn’t find affordable airfares! 

I was giving up, and before going to sleep, I “talked” to Mohanji. I will have a last try first thing when I wake up, and if I am not meant to be there, I surrender all to him. The next morning, to my surprise, I found a reasonably priced flight and also a cheaper car park near the airport. The next thing was to book my PCR test. None of the pharmacies and clinics near me had appointment slots. In the end, I booked at a place that takes 1.5 hours to drive. I was flying on Friday morning at 6 am; my test appointment was on Wednesday 5 pm. 

Although I left early, I was in heavy traffic for 3 hours and arrived 1 hour late for the appointment, and they were already shut. I was tired and worried after 3+ hours of driving and having missed my test. The lady who runs the clinic suggested I come back the next morning, but there was no guarantee that I will get the test results in time for my flight. Surprisingly, I received the Covid test result in only 6 hours. Here I come, Serbia!

I booked an apartment for four nights and found a cheaper way to travel by bus to the city centre from Belgrade airport on my own. I did not realise Arun was kindly helping me by asking around to book a place for me. I always avoid others’ offers for help, always thinking of not giving trouble to others regardless of any situation. I quietly arranged my own stay and transport without disturbing others. The only two things in my mind were, I wanted to be a volunteer at the Festival. If not, there was no point going there. And I wanted to see my soul Father, Mohanji. 

“My dear Mohanji, can I come to you as your child? Why do I need others’ permission to meet my Father if I am your child?” I was talking in my mind with some sadness, not sure how to be close to Mohanji physically, feeling guilty for not doing enough to be granted to meet Mohanji. I packed and got ready.

On Friday evening, I arrived safely at Belgrade airport. On the bus to the city centre, I managed to WhatsApp Arun to inform him of my arrival, and he said Mohanji was in Preethi’s rented apartment and could I quickly come. I dropped my bag, collected my apartment keys straight away and called a taxi without delay. But I just missed Mohanji by 2 minutes when I arrived there.

I was not disappointed because I met many people in the apartment. Preethi, Bhavani and others were busy preparing food for the Festival, and I still had no clue what was the agenda for the next day. The warmth and welcome in the apartment from everyone made me feel at home immediately. Meeting each other after so long in this crazy time was more than a dream come true.

I arrived at the venue at 6 am, registered as a volunteer at the last minute by divine plan and grace. It reminded me how strongly one has to believe in faith. I was volunteering at the food counters together with our UK family team. How amazingly all was arranged! Food counters were so busy, and I was longing to see my Father, Mohanji. When Mohanji arrived and walked towards the food counters, I could not wait and ran towards him for the long-awaited hug, “I love you.” The physical big hug and words brought a complete feeling. Experiencing the familiar fragrance and smile, I was fulfilled.

At mid-day, while meditation was happening, the food counter volunteers had some time to relax and rest. I was walking around and trying to explore other sections of the Festival. The first stop was at the Mai-Tri section; the energy of the area was so powerful. I started feeling energy flowing in my spine and the whole body. I wondered if they needed more volunteers and was asked if I could do Mai-Tri when someone came. Being there at the right time, I started to do Mai-Tri to one person, then another one. In the end, I did 4 Mai-Tri sessions. 

On the way back to the food counter, while passing by the centre hall, the meditation was still on, and I had a feeling to sit down. I rested my eyes and felt the energy movement in my body after continuous Mai-Tri sessions. I could feel the energy flowing around my whole body. After some time, I went into a trance, I was in stillness, but I could hear the different sounds outside of me very clearly – the meditation and talking sounds, different movements of the surroundings, and the wind blowing softly touching my shirt and skin. Suddenly, the familiar fragrance of Mohanji blew closely, just as if he was standing right in front of me. I was soaked into the fragrance, enjoying his presence without presence. 

Suddenly, I felt Mohanji putting his thumb to the centre of my eyebrows, the energy of his thumb like an electromagnetic shock, strong and energetic, pushing my whole body backwards and straightening my spine. My spine was still like a mast, feeling the thunderous energy running into my body through the spine from my third eye. After what seemed like a long time, I slowly came back to my body. I was not sure how long it had been. The meditation came to an end and I followed the instructions of rubbing my palms and brought the energy of my palms to my eyes. 

When I gently opened my eyes, everything in front of me was strangely changed, but I couldn’t describe the changes. Everything appeared fresh and new. I felt as if I had come into a whole new place, a new world. Even the Festival of Consciousness was amazingly happening in this crazy time, which I would never believe if I were not there physically. To me, I was visiting a paradise and attending the event of the Divine. 

After the Festival, Aleksandra invited me to come to the Waterfront apartment. I had no clue that she is Mohanji’s private assistant and staying with him now. She was welcoming me. I was also asking Arun about their plans, whether we could visit Mohanji. Knowing that the Acharya Board had a meeting with Mohanji in the early morning, I could only hope and wait. Geetha from our UK family called in the morning and invited me to their apartment for breakfast. When I arrived, she said she has an appointment with Mohanji, and I went along too.

Mohanji’s apartment was filled with everyone. I stayed as late as I could, and the next morning, I just walked in as if I was invited again. I had a chance to have a personal session with Mohanji. He asked, “Will you be here?” I replied, “Yes. I will be leaving only the day after.” “You stay and join dancing. I will see you and talk to you when I come back from Croatia.” But my flight would be leaving before he came back. Preethi and Preeti from India mentioned they would be staying until 4th August, and I could join them. 

Should I postpone my flight and stay? After Mohanji came back from his appointment in the evening, he again said to me, stay and learn dancing. As many had told me, whatever Mohanji says is a command. Amazingly, when I checked the difference in flight fares, it was only £7! Well, how can I not stay? The only thing that bothered me was the car park extension. I spoke with the car park agent; they said I would be charged £25 per day on my return. I tried to talk to the car park office to negotiate a cheaper rate and tried to extend it online. But nothing worked. Hoping I would be able to settle for a cheaper rate when I got home, I changed my flight date. 

Being with Mohanji family members from other countries, soaking in the grace of meeting Mohanji and the Serbian family, was so joyful. Jelena also arranged an outing on a cruise ride in Belgrade. It ended as a cruise party, which happened really amazingly. Vegan dinner for the night was fine dining, the final touch! I was overjoyed. The next day, I had a feeling that I accidentally threw away the parking ticket while having dinner in Belgrade. I tried to find the ticket, but it could not be seen at all, so I left it and decided to settle it when I reached the airport in the UK. 

Mohanji with Chai

The next morning, I packed my luggage and dropped the keys for check out. On the way to Preethi’s, I agreed with Aleksandra to stop by at 8 am and help to pack as they were also checking out at 10 am on the same day. My aim was to bid goodbye to Mohanji. Mohanji and a small group will travel to Croatia at 9 am. Aleksandra, Devi and Mila will travel back to Novi Sad separately. When I arrived, they were panicking because the whole apartment was still in a mess without cleaning and packing not being completed. I helped with what was in front of me. I hoped more people would come for help. But no others turned up. In the end, everything was done just on time when the owner came. 

While transferring all the luggage to the car, Aleksandra asked me whether I would come with her to Novi Sad. I was surprised and replied, “Could we actually go together? Why not?” She then doesn’t need to be alone on the journey. She said she would be very happy if I could. I was more than happy with what had been arranged this way by Mohanji. I informed Preethi of the arrangements and travelled to Novi Sad.

When we arrived in Devi’s parent’s residence, Devi’s Mum welcomed us with the lovely local coffee, which I fell in love with right away. We have one whole day till the next evening before Mohanji and the team would come back from Croatia. We had a chance to visit the city centre for some food and necessities shopping. I felt so grateful just to be able to be here. When Mohanji and the team came back, I did not have the urge to go near him all the time. I was fulfilled even if I could serve the people that serve Mohanji directly. I did not ask for more. I was so happy. 

I was spontaneously fitted into the cleaning part and wherever I needed to serve. It just flowed with no plan. Everyone was very busy with their work; if I could make them a cup of coffee or tea, I would be happy. That’s how I felt. Seeing the new member of the Mohanji family, Lucky the dog, suddenly becoming so active, I realised I was extremely hyperactive in the house too and became talkative. I had also joined HSTD (Himalayan School of Traditional Dance) foundation course daily which gave me another wonderful experience of Barathanatyam. I had no sign of tiredness. It was not me in the norm, and I realised Mohanji’s energy had brought this change in me!

One morning, I was called to join the group in the morning talk with Mohanji, and it turned into an impromptu satsang. As Mohanji answered the questions of others, I could see the brightness around Mohanji. Since I was not wearing my glasses that morning, I thought it must be the reflection from the sunlight through the window. I blinked my eyes just to see clearly. After blinking a few times, the light turned brighter and brighter. I was struggling to keep my eyes open to look at him directly. 

I squinted my eyes as Mohanji continued talking. I asked him a question, and as he turned his head to me, the opposite side of the light became brighter and thicker. Likewise, when he turned his head and answered Chris, the same thing happened. When his head went back to the centre, the brightness was like shining sun rays from his head and body. It was like naked eyes looking directly at the midday sun, something even brighter than the sun. I couldn’t come back from the light that blinded my eyes for some time. I felt my body really warm the whole day. 

I was on a high throughout the day, just floating around. All that I could see was the brightness around me. This incident showed me the subtle ways in which Mohanji operates and I felt privileged to have had a glimpse of this radiant person, shining like a million suns. Is Mohanji the physical body that we see or is he the pure light of consciousness that we sometimes catch a glimpse of? Something to ponder about.

Moving on, while preparing for my return to the UK, I again did not want to disturb others to take me to the airport. I was quietly thinking of asking Milica to book a taxi. While on the boat ride with our Serbian family, Biljana was checking if someone could drop me at Belgrade airport and Monika, the Serbian president, happily offered the ride. The warmth of the soul family really touched my heart. Everything was smoothly arranged as we arrived 3 hours before the flight. 

On a connecting flight in the Netherlands, I was going through the documents checkpoint before the departure gate. All the documents, including the antigen Covid test result, Day 2 return Covid test booking and locator form, must be shown at the checkpoint counter. As all the documents were on email, I need to connect to the airport Wi-Fi to present the documents. But to my surprise, my phone couldn’t connect to the Wi-Fi. I also tried to use my UK phone line. The officer offered his own hotspot connection. None of them worked. It was time for boarding, but I couldn’t present my documents. The lady who was supposed to help did not come and check at all. In the end, I heard my name being called, and they said it was too late to board. I was upset and angry about why this had to happen. 

It seemed Mohanji had other plans for me, and I took the only late flight. When I arrived at Birmingham airport at midnight, I contacted the car park attendant. (Two days before leaving, I had arranged an online meditation in Mandarin, and when I opened my laptop to prepare the poster, the parking ticket was strangely slotted in the laptop! I kept it safe this time, so I can call the car park attendant to arrange transport to the car park.) There was only one guy working, he came to the airport with the bus, and I was the only one on the bus to the car park. He checked the car park system. My information was not registered at all. He just issued me a checkout ticket without asking anything so the car can exit from the gate. It was a miracle! I did not have to pay anything for parking.

Then I went to the car, thinking that I needed to go to the petrol station at midnight. When I turned the engine on, the petrol light showed there was a full tank, how can it happen? Because I drove from my house to the airport, only a quarter of the petrol should be left!

Straight away, I thought of what Dr Izabela had told me about the same experience she had had, and I was doubly surprised by Mohanji grace. 

I received a bigger grace after missing the connecting flight and waiting for 4 hours in the Netherlands airport. I was supposed to pay the £150 parking fee shown in the car park system when I was in Novi Sad before I went to the airport. Now I didn’t have to pay anything! I took a picture of the dashboard. I have no words to thank Mohanji enough. I can only prostrate at Mohanji’s lotus feet and merge into his consciousness.

When I was in Serbia, I totally forgot about my thoughts before I came to ask about staying with Mohanji to be close to him. He not only fulfilled all my heartfelt thoughts but his grace was with me for the whole journey. I am home with my Father, Mohanji, the one who is brighter than a thousand suns.

Om Shata Sahasra Suryaaya Vidmahe

Avadhootaaya Dheemahi

Tanno Mohan: Prachodayaat

I understand the essence of Mohanji as the brightness more than a hundred thousand suns together.

I recognise this brightness as highly auspicious.

May this being called Mohanji enlighten me.

My ride with Mohanji

my ride with mohanji

By Chakradhar Yakkala, Switzerland

I met Mohanji for the first time in October 2017 and have been meeting him regularly since then. More than the teachings and the worldly activities of Mohanji, what attracts me to him the most is the stillness he carries and the energy he exudes. Every time I visit him, I just plug into his silence, and I enjoy that silence within myself so well. It is like a drug for me, intoxicating and invigorating but never incapacitating. In addition to that, he always pushes my awareness a notch higher every time I meet him.

Earlier this year, I attended the retreat that happened in Istanbul in February 2021. I learnt and practiced Conscious Gapless Breathing there for the first time. One day after finishing that practice, as I lay down, as usual, to relax (with closed eyes), Deviji played some soft music. During that period, my breath rate dropped below a certain threshold. As one’s breath and mind are interconnected, not a single thought occurred on my mindscape while the awareness was at its peak. In such a state, I saw an expanse of a blue-colored matrix that had no limits. It was all-pervasive, and various forms were appearing and disappearing on it. I could not recognize any of those forms except Mahavatar Babaji. He appeared briefly, and His gaze had immense love, which I could never articulate in words. If he had continued that gaze for a little more time, I would have definitely gone mad with love.

I enjoy travelling, so after the retreat, I planned to travel across Turkey. After a few days of my solo travel, I felt dull and had severe body aches. I ignored them and pushed myself to quench my thirst to explore without listening to my body. After 90% of my expedition, I reached Izmir, a metropolitan city in Turkey.There I was struggling to talk and developed a persistent cough. I tested myself for Covid-19, and as one would expect, I was tested positive. I isolated myself in a hotel room and took the medication given by Turkish Government health care workers. I suffered from a severe cough and intermittent labored breathing.

I informed Mohanji of my situation, and he wrote back reassuring me that he is with me and watching over me always. He blessed me and asked me to connect more to his form. Thus, I spent a significant amount of time each day just looking at his picture. At this time, I recalled an event that happened during the retreat in Turkey. During our 1-1 time with Mohanji, he gave me a powerful mantra and asked me to chant it every day. That mantra is about being free from all kinds of diseases and having perfect health. I felt that he must have foreseen the situation that would take a toll on my health; hence, he gave me that mantra.  

A few days later, the cough became persistent, and every time I coughed, it felt as if somebody was piercing me with a knife in the diaphragm. I received a message from Mohanji during this time. He wrote I had a severe attack, but he had reduced the intensity of it.The same evening, my breathing was severely impaired, and I had to call for an ambulance to get admitted to a hospital in Izmir. The following morning, I felt it was time for me to go back to the soil. I could accept the severe bodily pain I was going through but could not accept dying in pain, as I had always dreamt of dying in a blissful state. So I wrote to Mohanji, “If I have to die, please make me free of pain”, as I did not want the pain to be my last experience of life. Mohanji replied that he is doing everything he can about my situation, and there was no need for me to worry.

I stayed for almost a week in the hospital on oxygen support.  I constantly watched another Covid positive man that was sharing the room with me. He was in his 70s or 80s, suffering terribly, and looked like he might die any moment. Whenever I felt a bit low, I would close my eyes and visualize Mohanji in the center of my forehead. I would experience a strong presence of him and in no time would feel normal again. After I got discharged from the hospital, I informed Mohanji of my status, and he told me that the worst is over, and I am on the road to recovery. He also mentioned that a lot of cleansing has happened, and a sort of re-birth will occur.

After getting discharged from the hospital, beginning of a new life

From the time I tested positive, my friend Judith from Switzerland wrote to me daily to check how I was doing, updated Mohanji regularly of my status, organized prayers and Mai-Tri sessions for me, where Mai-Tri practitioners from Switzerland and UK took turns and did Mai-Tri for me on a daily basis. She played the role of a Mother when I needed help the most, and I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to her and all the people who prayed and performed Mai-Tri for my recovery.

Once I returned home to Switzerland, I noticed that no matter what was happening in my life, I was just in gratitude all the time for still being alive. The most precious thing in our life is that we are alive, and most people tend to forget this and take life for granted (and expend a lot of time indulging in petty emotions). There is no guarantee that we are going to live next moment, so be grateful that you are alive now. Every morning I would wake up, look at Mohanji’s pic in my bedroom, smile and remind myself that I am still alive. One day when I woke up and smiled looking at Mohanji’s pic, he sent me a telepathic message, “Look, look.” At that very moment, my awareness got absorbed inward. I could see that although my body was awake, my emotional and psychological structures were dormant (literally sleeping) within me. I could see some energy (like electricity) flowed through those latent structures, and only then, they became alive and awake within me. This process happened within a span of few seconds after waking up.

Thus, my experiential understanding shifted from “I am this body and mind” to “I am the energy that is empowering this body and mind.” There is a world of difference between knowing this fact theoretically by reading some books or listening to some Masters and knowing it experientially. Once your identification shifts from the body and mind to the energy that flows through them (even for a brief period of time), you become inclusive in nature because you realize that it is the same energy that is flowing through and empowering every being.

After a considerable amount of recovery post Covid, I started practicing Conscious Gapless Breathing again. One day while I was lying down and relaxing after the practice, I wanted to get up but could not. Instead, something else got out of me, and I was witnessing myself in a different space. That space was just empty, slightly grayish, a little dark, and was extremely powerful. I was looking at myself sitting in that space and was observing the central axis in me. As I sat there, I remembered my friend and tried to transmit that power to him also. Sometime later, I did not know how to return from that space to my body as I have not figured out the mechanics of life yet. So, within myself, I said, “Mohanji, Mohanji, Mohanji”, and I was able to get back to my body from that space. Only then I could actually move my body and get up from the floor.

Recently, I attended the retreat in Montenegro. I went to Mohanji to thank him for being with me when I needed him the most. His words were, “So you went to hell and came back.” The following day, Mohanji said, “I heard that you were crying a lot”, referring to my struggle during Covid. I replied, “I thought it was time for me to go.” He then said, “It is a good practice, right? Now, when the time comes to go, you are already prepared!” I agreed affirmatively.

The following day of the retreat, the participants that were leaving early were told to come and receive Shaktipat (energy transfer) from Mohanji. When I went to receive Shaktipat, he said to me, Chakradhar, you are leaving! Why are you leaving? I hesitantly replied that I wanted to travel and explore Croatia, and that is the reason for my early departure and not participating in full retreat. Then he said to me, “You should go where your soul guides you, not where your mind guides you. See, you previously went where your mind guided you in Turkey, and you fell sick; before that, your soul guided you, and you were healthy, right?”

I said to myself, all these Gurus use heavy vocabulary such as soul guidance, guidance from the higher self, etc., and I have no clue what they talk about. I went up to him a few minutes later and asked, “How do I know if the soul is guiding me or the mind is guiding me?” He said that it is very simple. “If your mind is guiding you, it is seeking for repeated experiences and pleasures; if your soul is guiding you, it is seeking for transformation and silence.” These words were so simple, yet so profound. He then added, you are a scientist right; this is elementary stuff!

I left for Croatia and was happily exploring city after city. The last stop in my itinerary was Plitvice Lakes National Park, which is a 295km2 forest reserve, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there in the midst of nature. On my last evening there, I walked to a restaurant that was 30min away from my accommodation. On my way back, I felt like walking a bit in the forest before returning to my hotel. I walked on a well-demarcated path on the periphery of the forest for some time.  I saw some marked trails that led into the forest, so I took a turn and walked alone as there was no one around. The marked trail ended at a certain point inside the forest, and I was supposed to go back on the same marked path where I had come from.

I have always had a wild streak in me since childhood. Very few people in my life have seen that side of me. As a result, I have experimented quite a bit in my life and with my life. Sometimes, it turned out to be great and, at other times, terrible, but I have always learnt some amazing lessons. Instead of walking back, I entered the forest. I said to myself, “Although it is an unmarked territory from here, let me explore it. If I continue in this particular direction, I will still reach my accommodation, but through the forest. I have already walked this far in this direction, and I do not want to turn around now. Let me walk all the way!” Thus, I continued to walk inside the forest for almost an hour in the direction I thought was right.

Then, it dawned on me that somewhere I made a wrong turn and have walked deeper into the forest. Otherwise, it should not have taken this long for me to reach my accommodation. I had no clue where I was, and it was already 7:15 PM, and the sun was about to set. A bit of frustration, and a bit of fear started to creep in. I visualized Mohanji in my heart center and asked him, “Could you please guide me?” He guided me to walk in a particular direction. I walked in the appointed direction for approximately 40 minutes. I felt like I had arrived nowhere. By then, I already got a few cuts and bruises, and the heel of my right foot was bleeding continuously. I felt a bit dejected, not able to clearly figure out which way to go. I again got a message from Mohanji, “Keep walking son, even if you do not see any clear path, keep walking in the same direction I showed you.” I continued walking for 20 more minutes in that direction and stopped again, not knowing if I was doing the right thing. Once again, Mohanji sent me a message, “Keep walking, son; you are almost there.”

I continued walking for 15 more minutes. I was so dehydrated that the surface of my lips started to peel off (I neither carried any water nor I had come across a pool of water in that part of the forest I walked). On the other hand, that forest is home to bears, wild dogs and wolves. I took out my phone that was running out of battery and thought of calling the owner of my accommodation. I wanted to inform him of my status in case I managed to survive the night with wild animals and dehydration, so he could send a search/rescue team the following morning. Once again, I felt the message from Mohanji, “Continue in the same direction for ten more minutes; if you still do not see anything, make a phone call, but not now.” So trusting the message, I continued for another 10 minutes, and to my amazement, I reached the village where my accommodation was, just 5 minutes before it became completely dark. Only then, I understood why Mohanji said to me in Montenegro, “Do not go where your mind guides you!” Hahahaha!

Although my story appears to be different on the surface, on a deeper level, I feel that it is very similar to the stories of most people. Most of us walk into traps; somebody who has a physical compulsion will walk into one sort of a trap, another with an emotional compulsion will walk into a different sort of a trap, and similarly for the one with psychological compulsions. The bottom line is that unconsciously most of us walk into traps; what kind of a trap you walk into differs based on the predominant constitution you carry. Moreover, in many cases, by the time one realizes that they are stuck in a trap, they might have dissipated a significant amount of their lifetime and life energies. The only way to avoid it is to enhance your awareness and to connect to a higher frequency that will nurture, assist and facilitate the evolution of your awareness.

Finally, I would like to thank Mohanji immensely for always making my perception and awareness evolve, and would like to stress the fact that if someone connects to him, he is available to that person always. One needs to have the necessary subtlety and receptivity to recognize it and cherish it. 

The Master who never leaves your hand

Bliss in Meditation

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

Rimjhim Prasad, India

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

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

Padmini Ravi Kumar, Dubai

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

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

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

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

“Silence is the substratum on which sounds dance.”  

This was very clear. 

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

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

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

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

The Mohanji Shortcut by Charles Ndifon Londi

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

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

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

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

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

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