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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

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!”

Jai Mohanji,

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,

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”.

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.

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.

Mohanji_no_cloud_1
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.

Walking With Mohanji

By Lata Ganesh, USA

Mohanji 8

Following Mohanji on this Pathless Path of our Tradition, we are blessed with quite a few experiences from time to time:  some that we can perceive and some that we can’t, some experiences teach us valuable lessons while other ones transform us, and then there are yet other experiences that can only be described as mind-boggling!

I share below a few subtle experiences from the last category.  I perhaps lacked clarity at the time of occurrence to interpret them, but eventually I did connect the dots. While I had been completely alert at the time of having these experiences and for sure knew them to be real, I was still a little hesitant about sharing them, a part of me wondering if they had come from imagination, or whether they were hallucinations.

It was only after a recent experience, a long and most intense one that happened during the course of an Awakening Yoga Nidra (AYN) session, that I began to connect all the dots.

I shall start with a verse from Sri Guru Gita, the supreme scripture where Lord Mahadeva himself imparts the knowledge of the Guru Principle to Devi Parvati:

yenedaM darshitaM tattvaM, chitta chaityaadikaM tathaa; Jaagrat svapna suShupt yaadi, tasmai shri Gurave namaH

He enables the mind to perceive this world, although we cannot know Him with the mind; The witness of all three states of mind – Waking, Dreaming and Deepest Sleep, I prostrate at the auspicious feet of the Guru, the remover of ignorance.

Back in 2014 during Mohanji’s visit to Virginia, USA, we had arranged for a satsang at the local Shirdi Sai Baba temple.  At the end of the satsang, it was time for the evening aarati (ritual of offering light with reverence in front of an idol or murti).  The temple priest requested Mohanji to conduct it and as He started performing the arati before the idol of Shirdi Sai Baba, to the soulful singing of the aarati song by the gathered devotees, I fell into a deep trance.  In front of me, I no longer saw Mohanji’s physical body –  all I was seeing was a huge pillar of bright effulgence.  Mohanji and Sai Baba had merged together in a vertical beam of light.  I was ecstatic while witnessing this divine grace.

Mohanji_grace_Lata1

The same year there was also a retreat with Mohanji at Yogaville in Virginia.  There would be yoga sessions in the mornings, conducted by Devi Mohan and the chants during the session were being sung by Natesh.  Natesh was on his guitar singing a beautiful verse on Goddess Durga.  Mohanji was not physically present at the event hall, which was a few blocks away from where the retreat lodging was.  As I lay down deeply relaxed in shavasana pose after the yoga session, I saw a most powerful vision of Mohanji.  Though the form was physical, He was on a different plane, a thousand times brighter than the earth plane.  There was no one around him. He was walking gently, as if on clouds.  Though His physical form appeared the same as we see Him normally, the radiance was multi-fold.  This vision lasted for a few minutes.  The vision was so intense and so clear, that even by simply remembering it today, I can actually feel the experience right away.

Another unique experience that completely blew me away and still does, was one in Sedona in 2017.  Sedona is well-known as an area having several powerful energy vortices. Once again, I was attending a retreat there with Mohanji.  A guided meditation was to commence in the presence of Mohanji. Being one of the organizers of the retreat, I had to be seated in the front row a bit closer to Mohanji, to make myself available and alert in case anything was needed during the session.  But as the session began, instead of sitting alert I somehow slipped into deep meditation.  I don’t know for how long I was immersed in the peace and silence, but suddenly I felt myself going deeper and deeper, as though I were falling from high above, or one could say sinking slowly deep into the earth, all so gently that there was no fear.

Suddenly I was seeing Mohanji flying and he was pulling me up and making me fly beside him.  I was out of that dark room, flying in the open in beautiful sunny Sedona surrounded by red rocks.  Mohanji took me on a tour of the city.  Those familiar with Harry Potter books will know what a Quidditch game is.  This experience was exactly like flying mounted on a broomstick, except there was no broomstick!  Mohanji was turning back and looking at me with a twinkle in his eye. It was a most exhilarating and fun-filled ride.  Is this how astral travel is done?  I have no idea, but I can say for sure that Mohanji took me along on some kind of travel, flying beside Him. I could see the red rocks of Sedona, there were some caves, and then finally we came to a place where there were tall buildings. After some time, I came back to awareness of my body and surrounding.

I was completely shaken.  I opened my eyes to realize that the audio recording was still playing!  Mohanji’s eyes were open and He was looking straight into my eyes! He indicated to me to come closer as He wanted to say something. The audio track needed to be changed during the meditation process.  He said, “You were supposed to be alert and not fall into meditation.  You had a job to do!”  What could I say in reply?  I was still reeling from the experience and somehow stumbled back to the table where the audio system was, and barely managed to find the next track to play.  I have no clue what this experience was about, but know for sure that it was REAL.  There was no mind play here, nor was I hallucinating.  This was genuine and I am grateful to Mohanji for having nudged my skeptic mind towards the realm of spiritual possibilities.

Mohanji 4

Saturday, March 3, 2018 –   Awakening Yoga Nidra session with Devi Mohan (Session was via Zoom with Devi from Serbia). This was the very first Awakening Yoga Nidra session being offered by Deviji to the Mohanji USA family.  I had in the past, been fortunate to be part of Devi’s yoga sessions that included brief Yoga Nidra at the end.  But I had never participated in a full-length Awakening Yoga Nidra session before. I had absolutely no idea what to expect. Our Zoom session with Devi was scheduled for 11 am and hence I was fully rested and fresh.  As I had no preconceived ideas or expectations about the session, I was approaching it with a very open attitude. I feel compelled to say this, because of the experience I went through during the session.  I want to clarify that I was not asleep nor was I dreaming or imagining any of the visions that were to unfold.

As Devi was starting the session, I was very relaxed. In an attitude of complete surrender to Mohanji’s energy, I offered my prayers to Him and to the Guru Parampara, fully open to receive the divine blessings. During the entire hour and a half or more, I did not feel even the slightest interference from my mind.  There was not a single thought distracting me.  This was rather unusual for me, as even though I am normally able to experience brief periods of stillness of the mind, I can say for sure that until this experience, I had never experienced such an amazing state of non-interference of thoughts, for such an extended period of time.

As the session began, Devi began guiding us expertly through the process of bringing up various emotions, and going through these emotions and deeply embedded past experiences attached to those emotions. The session then moved to allow the participants to walk towards a holy hill.  When I followed this guidance, I continued to feel a total calmness and determination in walking out and venturing forth –  far, far away towards the hill.  It was an intense and beautiful feeling.  I approached the temple of all faiths – in my own vision it was an old deserted Shiva temple on the hill-top, and there was no one around. I was very much overwhelmed with emotion at this point and my eyes welled up with tears at the sight of Lord Mahadeva in the temple. Dissolving with love for the Lord, I offered my prayers in deep gratitude. I left the temple completely drained of emotion – but in a body that was half snake and half human (the upper part of the body was that of a snake or naga with raised hood, and the lower portion that of a young boy in a bright white dhoti and with human legs).  This form was brilliant and absolutely fearless, and there was an accompanying feeling of the deepest purity and firm resolve.

Mohanji 5

I continued walking in that form. I could feel the spine of my body to be very erect and warm, literally merged with the upper form of the snake, with the hood resting on my sahasrara. But there was absolutely no feeling of fear, even with such physical closeness between the body and the hood of the naga. I kept walking with absolutely no emotion, but steadfast with determination.  After passing the Ganesha shrine and offering a prayer, Mohanji appeared.  Mohanji’s form looked brilliant, and was devoid of any emotion, calm and very focused. (This was the same intense form of which I had a vision, back in 2014 at Yogaville as mentioned earlier in this piece).  There was no greeting or conversation. He led the way ahead while my form walked a few steps behind Him in total surrender and no other feeling.  (For lack of better words, I am using the word “I”, being unsure who this being was?!)

I continued following Mohanji who walked swiftly towards a dark cave, then stopped. I was instructed to go inside.  As I walked forward and got inside the cave, I could actually, physically feel the movement of my form, of this half-naga young boy, as a slithering into the cave.  The cave was dark and in the center was a beautiful shiva linga – a sphatika linga, translucent blue and crystalline. It was self-luminous, illuminating the dark cave.  As I circled the holy linga, its pure and calming energy completely engulfed me. When I came out of the cave, I could see Mohanji waiting outside.  I continued to walk behind Him as He moved towards a dark forest.  Again, there was no fear or apprehension but just a detached steadfastness, and my spine was totally erect and vibrating during this time (this I could feel in my body lying down on the mat as my spine felt rigid and very hot. I could not really sense the frame of my body, it was as though it was expanded).

I was then guided by Devi to enter the forest while Mohanji stayed behind.  Even though the forest was totally dark from the very dense vegetation, I had still no sense of apprehension. I walked bravely through till Devi guided us to a ditch in the middle.  We were to look inside the ditch and bring out the entities.  I did not see very many entities when asked to bring them up, and I recollect that there were about three which I embraced and then let go, and proceeded to walk out of the forest. But this time as I walked out to meet Mohanji again, the half-naga/half-boy form had turned into a pillar of bright light.  The light was much closer to Him as though merging, during the walk. Mohanji’s form was even brighter than before.

Hovering “I” on Bosnian Pyramid with Mohanji 1, experience

Even though He had a human form, it was not the Mohanji we see physically.  He was a super-energized form, very intense.  As I walked behind Him in that light form, the form of Mohanji disappeared as we reached the abode of Mahavatar Babaji. I could hear Mahavatar Babaji’s gayatri mantra being played on the audio system.  I did not see Babaji’s form there.  Mohanji’s form merged into the form of Hayagriva, seated in meditation under the tree.  By then, I could not see any form of myself at all. But I could feel that I was present there. I chanted the Hayagriva mantra loudly and clearly and prostrated to the Lord.

As soon as I prostrated in the vision, I saw the form of Lord Hayagriva change into that of Mahavatar Babaji.  Babaji’s Gayatri, with the words

Mahavatara Vidmahe, Satguru devaya Dhimahi, Tanno BABAJI prachodayaat

continued to play on the audio system during the Awakening Yoga Nidra session, but I was hearing instead loud and clear, the words Tanno MOHANJI Prachodayaat.

I felt myself in a trance.  Mohanji’s form was merged with Babaji and the words of a new Gayatri mantra were revealed.  I remember the words as the following:

Om Parabrahmaaya Vidmahe, Mahaa-avataaraya Dheemahee, Tanno MOHANJI Prachodayaat

Babaji

In the subtle realm of Gyanganj, Mohanji had merged into the form of Mahavatar Babaji, and I was among a group of followers chanting the above Gayatri.  There was the radiance of brilliant light everywhere. It was a very overwhelming moment. After this, Devi guided us to visualize a unicorn. However, I was simply unable to bring a unicorn into my visualization.  What I saw in front of me instead was a huge peacock with a shining vel (lance) hanging by its side, the beautiful and brilliant vahana (vehicle) of Karthikeya, son of Shiva.  The peacock then carried me out of that space and around the mountains to the lake.

Now at this point, a very strange thing began to happen.  For the rest of the session, all my visions were occurring before Devi’s guidance came. It was like I was visualizing, and Devi was doing a running commentary of it.  It was as though she was witnessing what was happening.  Surreal!  One of the visions of the Divine Mother Parvati overflowing with love and compassion, was very profound. As the session ended, the intensity and magnitude of what I had just had gone through, made me fall totally silent within. I was just awestruck by the experience.

I am deeply in gratitude to Mohanji for all that He has given me, and for carrying me along with Him and opening my vision to get a glimpse of me within. Mohanji had told me the first time I met him, that we are deeply connected.  I am not sure I clearly understand the meaning of that connection.  I have never asked him directly about it.  I have been very patient in my spiritual journey.  My receptivity has certainly intensified over the time and I have also deepened my sadhana.  This along with the supreme grace and compassion from Mohanji has allowed me to experience this intense and beautiful connection.  I am so thankful to our dear Devi whose deep devotion to the Tradition makes her a true and dedicated instrument to pour the light of grace on us.

Mohanji 7

As I recall this extraordinary vision revealed during the Awakening Yoga Nidra experience, I recognize my own ancestral connection with the deity Naga Subramanya, a form of Lord Karthikeya also known as Muruga, who is worshipped as the Lord of the Nagas. It was my forefathers who had built the temple for Naga Subramanya that still stands today in the village of Lakshmi Narayana Puram in Palakkad, Kerala, in South India. My ancestors had also been worshipping the “Vel”, symbol of Lord Muruga for generations.

Lord Muruga is the son of Mahadeva (Shiva) and Parvathi Devi.  Mahavatar Babaji is known to be an avatar of Lord Muruga.  Mohanji, during a satsang in Sedona, revealed his connection with Sage Bhoganathar, the Guru of Mahavatar Babaji. This vision only clarifies and confirms the connection with Mohanji, Naga Loka, Babaji and our Golden Tradition, and the grand collaboration.

It is only after seeing this vision that I went in search of a picture of our Kula Devatha (ancestral deity), Naga Subramanya, which I share above.  There is the Vel and the Peacock and the Naga’s hood and the form of Subramanya as a little boy.  Believe me, I had never ever seen this picture before and I feel that it is the Awakening Yoga Nidra event that has led me it. Please read Mohanji’s earlier blogs on Naga Loka and his visit to Palani and Sage Bhoganathar’s samadhi.

I end this blog with deep love and respect for my Guru, Brahmarishi Mohanji.  It has been a very interesting, intense and enlightening journey and I am sure that it will continue to be so, as the mystery and meaning of spiritual connections keeps unfolding little by little.  But all I wish for now, is to just remain at His Golden Feet.

An Unexpected Meeting and a Transforming Glance

mohansuniverse - Mohanji - Mina Obradovic

By Mina Obradovic, Serbia

With Mohanji and Nath Master

Part 1

Mohanji has often been heard to say that as the Mai-Tri healers continue their healing practice they will completely merge with His consciousness over time. Their eyes will eventually become Mohanji’s eyes, and their senses will merge with His. Although I have practiced healing for a long time, I have been completely detached from that expectation and hence did not anticipate this to happen.

It so happened that I had the blessing of the opportunity to visit a very powerful temple in the company of Mohanji. This particular temple was fenced in, and access was possible only by walking via a long road. As we walked, I was often glancing up at our destination, and on one such glance, spotted in the distance an old man with a white beard standing outside the temple. He had white hair falling over his shoulders and was clad only in a small piece of white cloth. His body stood still and his chin was slightly lifted up, as he was looking towards the open sky. I had not noticed him previously.

Upon reaching the temple, I walked towards the spot where I thought the old man had been standing and was surprised to see a white dog there instead. The dog radiated energy. He stood by Mohanji for a long time. As I was standing next to them, I closely observed their vibrations and felt both emanating infinite calmness and peacefulness. I felt,“Somehow, they are so similar.” I realized that the energy radiated by Mohanji and the dog were extremely similar. When I meet Mohanji, His human characteristics are diminished as Divinity takes over. Similarly, this mysterious white dog gave no glimpse of an earthly nature. He did not run around nor display any oscillation or emotion in his behavior. Only stillness, which is the nature of a true Master, was predominant and very obvious.  After a while, when our group moved on, he started walking around too.

mohansuniverse - Mohanji - Mohanji and the Nath master posing as a dog

I knew in my heart that this dog was really the old man that I had spotted. A strange force drew me towards him. Kneeling down in front of him, I gazed at him and my hands spontaneously touched his feet. This act of reverence was done discreetly to avoid the notice of the people around me. As we were having lunch at that time, I desired to feed him. So, I rushed, grabbed some food and returned to the dog. Mohanji said, “Do not feed him. He does not want to eat now.” On a conscious level, I obeyed and accepted Mohanji’s words and withdrew. However, a desire to feed him remained unfulfilled in my subsconscious.

On the way back from the temple, I had to share this experience with Mohanji. With a smile, He said, “Yes. That was a Nath Master. He was here to bless us in the form of a dog, and has left now.” I blurted out in incredulous excitement, “But he was actually, physically there! He was not transparent or only energetically present! It seemed as if he was made of flesh and blood!” Mohanji replied, “Well, this happened only because of your own transformation, which is the result of your extensive healing practice. I have told you before – the more you practice healing, the more your eyes will become like mine. That is why you were able to ‘see’ him.”

mohansuniverse - Mohanji - MIna and the Nath mater posing as a dog

I slowly started experiencing exactly that – Mohanji’s eyes instead of mine and His consciousness in everything. I wondered why others did not see this Master in his human form instead of his form as a dog. Soon enough, the answer came – there was not “me” existing. Whenever Mohanji settles in somebody to display a miracle, the person and his/her identity become unimportant. The eyes that saw him were Mohanji’s and the subtlety that helped me experience His eyes during this particular moment was the Tradition’s will to convey an important message to humanity. They reminded us that we are often not loving and kind to animals who love unconditionally, let alone humans. The message is to treat all beings with reverence, love, and kindness since the forms of those beings can be those of Mohanji or any other Master from the Tradition in disguise. We can never tell.

To me, my God is my Guru, Mohanji. However, I ask myself, does it benefit anybody if we treat only the physical form of Mohanji with reverence, love, and kindness? No being is different from Him. I could never have dreamed that the dog would be a Master. Harming such a one, a saint in another form, through thought, word or action can have serious karmic consequences, prolongment of our spiritual journey and inevitable suffering. Saints often hide behind personalities and various bodies. They often do not want to be recognized.

Sometimes they can appear normal and usual, or they may choose an unappealing, angry, egocentric or rude exterior. Sometimes they may come to us in the form of the old and the sick, as birds, cows, flowers, or even as a child in order to bless us. Sometimes they may be exactly the person that we live with, that we may be taking for granted. Do we really know our parents, wives, husbands or children? We think we know them because we live with them, but that is not a criterion for knowing any soul and its path. Again, Masters hide in many forms. If we fail the test and react with ego to a saint’s seeming expression of ego – we lose. We NEVER know whom we are interacting with. Even a single thought of anger can produce a reality of suffering.

Part 2

A few weeks later…

Our group moved on in our travels from the location of the temple, to another town. My mind kept revisiting that encounter with the Nath Master many times. During one such time, a spontaneous prayer arose within me to meet him again, although I released that thought immediately afterward and promptly forgot all about it.

Later that evening, I had gone out to dinner with friends. When it came time to leave the restaurant, I wanted to use the washroom. Therefore, I told my friends that I would be joining them downstairs in a short while and to wait in the car that was going to pick us up. When I came down, there was no one outside the restaurant except for a white dog. He lay there on the ground in a most relaxed way, with only his head and eyes moving slightly. I gently caressed his head. Sitting in front of him, I started talking to him. I do not recall what I said, but I do remember that I spoke for a few minutes! I was not joking or playing. I was sincerely sharing words with him, as I was certain he understood me perfectly. I smiled when some restaurant employees there saw me with the dog and said, “You should take him home!”

Remembering Mohanji’s constant need to feed everybody wherever He goes, I too thought, “I should give some food to this dog.” The only place where I could find some food for him however was in a fast-food restaurant, and that was some bread and butter. Although dogs sometimes eat meat, I avoid feeding animals non-vegetarian food. I put the plate with the bread in front of the dog. He sniffed at it, but would not eat. Therefore, I broke the bread into pieces, but he still refused it. I speculated that perhaps he was not hungry, or that maybe the bread was too dry.

mohansuniverse - Mohanji - Mohanji and the Nath master posing as a dog 2

With my fingers, I broke the bread into even smaller pieces and mixed the butter in thoroughly. That worked, and I was very happy to see him eat it then! My friend Priti Rupee was also pleased to see him eating and took a few pictures. We had to get going, so I said a goodbye to him and left. On our way back home, a thought suddenly flashed across my mind, “That was the saint from that temple. He heard your prayer and came back again to fulfil your wish.” Deep inside, I knew it was the truth but the nature of the wavering mind is such that one is never fully sure.

Weeks passed before this incident came to my mind again. I decided to share it with Mohanji, saying that I was unsure whether it had been the saint that I had previously met in the temple.. He said with conviction, “It was him.” Hearing this confirmation from my Guru himself, I could barely hide my excitement. The Tradition had fulfilled my desire on the very same day the thought of it had occurred! I remembered that I had wanted to feed that saint when we were still in the temple, when Mohanji asked me not to do it. Just as this desire of mine, everything is heard by Tradition and nothing is forgotten by Them. Their precision and lack of hesitation channeled a message that in our path there is no space for imagination, swaying, delaying, doubting or irresponsibility. If Naths work with such a precision, a disciple of Nath must BECOME that precision.

I have heard it said many times, that Masters always hear the sincere desires of seekers. Now the truth of those words had eventually become my reality, as I was constantly experiencing fulfilment of each one of my desires. “Be good. Do good.” That is Mohanji’s teaching that is to be practised with everyone at all times. That is the highest truth that Mohanji has blessed me with, that I am still trying to learn. One day, I hope to reach the point of unconditional love towards all. Here, I would also like to express my gratitude towards Priti Rupee, for taking such lovely pictures.

Shaktipat through eyes

During our group’s stay in Mumbai, there was an informal satsang (discourse) with Mohanji. We sat casually on the floor in front of Him, while He was speaking to us about something. Suddenly, He stopped and looked directly at me – straight into my eyes.

mohansuniverse - Mohanji - Mohanji looking with kindness and compassionAt first, it seemed like a normal glance. I smiled and we continued looking at each other. The gaze was longer than expected. I then realized that He was working on me – I was being healed and cleansed. It continued for a while and while my gaze was locked on Him, suddenly in my peripheral vision I could see dense smoke around us.

Heat was coming in waves, with short breaks in between, burning my chest and head. He said with a smile, “I told you – you cannot stand fire.” I smiled weakly, as much as the limitless energy permitted me to move. I was hardly able to move or look anywhere else. Looking at His eyes continuously, it seemed as if more of the black smoke was appearing around us. It grew so dark, that after a moment, I could not see His face at all. I had to blink a few times to see His eyes again. In the very same moment after I noticed the smoke, He said, “So much of weight leaving”. I smiled in response, silently expressing my gratitude. In one moment, it ended. He turned His gaze away from me and smiled. I was… speechless. A few other people that were with me, and I were in that spell for perhaps a couple of minutes later. We felt no need for words. I have no idea how long it took but it felt like an hour in His energy. The intensity of the Shaktipat must have increased. I do not know.

mohansuniverse - Mohanji - Mohanji in meditation

There was the profound feeling that a deep heaviness from the past – very familiar to me, had been removed from me in those couple of seconds, by the power of my Guru. For many years of my life since childhood, I had felt it in the center of my belly as a dense ball of dark smoke, heavy and uncomfortable. It had been provoking all kinds of negativities in me – insecurity, fear, anxiety etc. I had had no control over it. It had been sitting within me – a dormant volcano, very quiet at most times and at other times, abruptly erupting sending me into a frenzied vortex of anxiety. After this release, I knew it had finally left me completely. No trace of it had remained. Even if my subconscious mind doubted the reactivation of the volcano, from the long feeling of familiarity with it, it never did. It never came back again.

Just a few seconds in Mohanji’s presence had transformed me thus. We may not be aware, yet He works on each of us, each moment, while eating, while sleeping, close or far away from us – always. He doesn’t waste even a moment in serving the world and His sincere seekers.

mohansuniverse - Mohanji - Master and disciple - I am always with youThis incident is just one of the few instances that He has actually allowed His work to be recognized so tangibly. Since meeting Mohanji, I have experienced so much transformation, and have ALWAYS received firm proof of His Grace being the cause of it. Yet, no matter how tangible the proof is, a person who does not have the “eyes” will still be unable to see. Only eyes that crave Grace will recognize Grace.

Prostrations and profound gratitude to my Guru.

Thank You, Mohanji.

In humility, and with love to all,

Mina Obradović

Grace of Mohanji – Beyond Science

Author: Dr. Nikita Naredi, Pune, India

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune

A flickering flame ignited five years back has now expanded into a crackling fire, creating a warm and wholesome hearth in my soul, that illuminates the path to my destination – my Guru, Mohanji. As you must have guessed, the duration of my association with Mohanji is nearing 5 years. The transformation He has brought in me, my life and my overall persona is beyond words. This is the change I perceive in myself and my nearest family (my daughter, my husband, my parents and siblings) can overtly see in me. I don’t need not to put this testimony in words to prove their veracity as everyone connected to Mohanji (I call him lovingly as “Father”) can vouch for the truth of their experiences. If He says, “I am with you”, then He is always with us walking by our side, helping us in our day to day dharma, removing all our impediments and facilitating our growth both spiritually and as human beings.

All of us who are positively connected to Mohanji have had super experiences of Him touching our lives. It behooves us to pen them down these experiences so that, during our moments of darkness, they serve as a guiding light for us to dispel negativity and reaffirm faith by showing us the immense grace that has been showered by the Master in our lives. It also helps show the beacon of light to other people including our M family members to repose trust in the Divine that is always earnestly working for our well being.

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune 2

I am a gynaecologist specialising in IVF (in vitro-fertilisation) – medical speak for what is commonly known as making test tube babies for couples who are unable to conceive. The success rate of this procedure is low with the best of centres across the globe hovering around 45-50% i.e. in the best of the best, 1 in 2 couples succeed in conceiving. The results in my clinic are very good with Mohanji’s grace. Mostly, it is 45% and in certain months, it goes up to 55%. I take no credit for that because I know He is facilitating every procedure that I am doing. Earlier, I used to feel sad for couples getting negative reports. During one of my meetings with Him, He said, “Surrender it to me, irrespective of whether good or bad, and believe Mohanji is performing it.” Since, I have stopped taking ownership for anything that happens in my clinic and react neutrally.

I want to share one of my experiences which is beyond the realms of science and will be difficult to comprehend for a normal person who is working only with the narrow domains of mind and reasoning. This particular couple, married for 8 years with no children, reported to my clinic for fulfilling their dreams of parenthood. They were very anxious as they had two failed attempts of IVF performed earlier elsewhere. We started their evaluation and, after counselling and explaining the existing problem, I recommended IVF treatment for them. Soon we commenced the IVF treatment for the couple. IVF treatment, in short the eggs of the women are taken out of the body under anaesthesia and fused with husband’s sperms outside the body and once the embryo (baby) is formed, it is put into the woman’s uterus. For this, the lady has to take lots of injections for almost a month which can be both physically and psychologically very challenging. The worst is the uncertainty of the outcome.

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune 3 Grace

When we started the procedure for the couple, I told them to get connected to Mohanji and they started attending the Power of Purity meditations regularly. The husband started feeling at peace and he started participating in all our service activities too.  Soon, he became an ardent devotee of Mohanji. After the first failed cycle, we started the third cycle with complete surrender to Mohanji. The husband was teaching the kids from slums at ‘Mohanji Kaa Aangan’ in Pune with full sincerity, love and devotion. I knew Mohanji was taking care. I started the third cycle of IVF and after a tumultuous month of injections and procedures, the final procedure was done and the time for results approached. I had no expectations this time. Lo and behold! The result was positive and she had conceived twins. It might seem very obvious this time but this is not what I wanted to share. The journey of Mohanji’s blessings in their lives had just begun with pregnancy.

After around 4½ months of pregnancy, the lady started having very high blood pressure. High blood pressure during pregnancy is a very severe disorder, especially if it happens during early months. High blood pressure during pregnancy can be fatal for the mother if not treated in a timely manner. If the blood pressure can’t be controlled and the pregnancy is very early, the only cure is to remove the pregnancy to save the life of the mother. For this particular lady, her first blood pressure recording was very high at 180/120 (normal is 120/80). We admitted her and started her on medication to control the blood pressure. I was anxious and apprehensive. An uncomfortable  thought had come to consider the possibility of aborting her pregnancy if the blood pressure could not be controlled. Then again, who was I to decide the course when Mohanji was taking care?

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune 6 Grace

It was a happy moment for us when her pressure was controlled soon enough but we knew we would have to monitor her very closely. Such cases would require high doses of drugs or, in some cases, a combination of two or more medicines to control the blood pressure. I called the couple and told them that we have a long way to go to finally reach the stage of having a successful pregnancy outcome without any harm to the mother and the babies. Only one thing was required: complete surrender to Mohanji. They started chanting daily and continued the POP meditation daily, while I and my team were looking after the lady’s medical condition. It is a miracle that, till 8½ months of pregnancy, her blood pressure remained under control with a minuscule dose of medicines. The babies were growing adequately with no complications.

Blood pressure during pregnancy is associated with many complications – fits and liver failure being some of them. This lady had no such problems as well as no increase in number and dosage of drugs. It was only in the end (about 8½ months of pregnancy) when the babies were mature enough that the blood pressure started increasing again despite the medicines. At that point, we decided to carry out her delivery for the safety of the mother and the babies. She underwent a Caesarean section and delivered two beautiful, cute daughters who they subsequently named Nitya (Eternal) and Niyati (Destiny).

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune 4 Grace

It’s beyond our scientific knowledge to explain this miraculous protection throughout the pregnancy. In cases of high blood pressure in early parts of pregnancy, we have generally had to sacrifice the babies for the safety of the mother. In this couple’s case, not only did we avoid abortion, but the healthy babies were also delivered against all odds. Surely, this lady and her beautiful daughters were completely under the protection of Mohanji! Their surrender, utmost faith and Mohanji’s blessings gave us a successful and fruitful outcome. Lucky are the two angels who were blessed by Mohanji in person when He visited Pune. Divinity, grace, compassion and unconditional love was exuding when they were in His arms.

Another lady who is also a Mohanji devotee as well as my patient had a failed first IVF cycle. She was very composed when she heard the report. When she met Mohanji subsequently, He said “It was not meant to happen this time”. He suggested her to visit Kukke Subrahmanya temple in Karnataka before going through the next cycle. She expressed her desire to have twins and Mohanji smiled as if to say Tathasthu (So be it). Subsequently, when we carried out her second cycle, the Divine was with her. Guess what! She had twins – a boy and a girl!

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune 5 Grace

This is just a drop of the ocean of blessings from Mohanji in my patients lives and mine. I feel His presence in my clinic which is officially called the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Centre. For me, it’s my temple since He remarked, “I stay here” on one of His visits to the centre. Since the month, He visited and blessed the place the success rates have just boomeranged to 63% from the usual 45-50%. We are only a channel for the Divine to carry out it’s work. The grace and blessings of the Master help us sail through.

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune 7 Grace

Science and technology have definitely helped us progress and help these anxious couples but the role of the Divine and the grace always reigns more supreme. During one of my conversations with Mohanji, He had mentioned “The devotee’s surrender forces Me to cut down their karmas to such a great extent that it is unfathomable”. Every moment, I thank Mohanji for guiding me, blessing me and spreading His love and grace so that I am able to bring happiness in people’s lives.

Jai Mohanji

Miracles of Lord Hanuman

 Lord Hanuman - miracles

Lord Hanumanji - miracles - intro

Manojavam Marutatulyavegam Jitendriyam Buddhimatam Varishtham
Vatatmajam Vanarayuthamukhyam Shriramadutam Sharanam Prapadye

Lord Hanuman, the one Who is Swift as the Mind and Fast as the Wind, who is the Master of the Senses, and Honoured for His Excellent Intelligence, Learning and Wisdom, Son of the Wind God and Chief among the “Vanaras” (Who were part of the Devas incarnated in the species of the monkeys to serve Sri Rama during His Incarnation), To that Messenger of Sri Rama, I take Refuge (by prostrating before him).

Treta Yuga (The era of Lord Rama) is long gone, however, Lord Hanuman exists even today. He exists in the form of our devotion, utmost surrender to our Gurus and divine. He exists to show us the presence of supreme consciousness, the Para Brahma. Time and again, many devotees have experienced the presence, incarnation and vision of Lord Hanuman.

Needless to say, the one who has eyes can only see! God is everywhere!

One such miraculous appearance of Lord Hanuman happened through the form of our ‘aradhya’, (Respectful) the one in whom we see supreme consciousness – Mohanji.  This happened recently while Mohanji was in Palakkad, Kerala and on the auspicious day of 4th anniversary celebration of Shirdi Sai Baba temple in Palakkad.

This miraculous appearance was not just visualised by one person, but multiple people. The grace didn’t even stop there, this appearance was even experienced by another devotee thousands of miles away, many days after this actually happened, just by mere watching photos!

Unbelievable, it may seem, but the sincere and true account from the people who witnessed it directly says it all. Here is a compilation of the  experiences by three people who have witnessed this event directly.

 

Experience sharing by Mahesh Bhalerao

I was very fortunate to meet and receive blessings from the most unassuming and humble Siddha Saint Devi Amma at Her residence in Bangalore. This is the second time I was meeting Her. I had met Her earlier with Mohanji.

Last time Devi Amma explained the secret of why She is holding the pillow all the time near her stomach area. It was a very interesting story and we all laughed. I really love to listen to Her voice when She speaks, as every single word is very divine, loving, full of energy. Mohanji considers Devi Amma as His own mother. Agastya Muni had told Devi Amma that Mohanji is His son and Devi Amma also considers the great Sage as Her father.

This time around like a child, I requested Her to tell us a story and She explained how She met Hanumanji for the first time and how Hanumanji Himself confirmed His identity.

Hanumanji made Her listen to His each and every breath and His every hair saying Ram, Ram, Ram, to confirm His identity.

Remembering that explanation makes me feel amazed every time.

While leaving Devi Amma’s place, She gave me a paper bag saying it has some fruit and specifically an orange for Mohanji, an apple for Mila and a pomegranate for Devi Mohan.

I kept the bag carefully not to lose or misplace it during my travel from Bangalore to Palakkad. I was travelling to Palakkad to be present for the 4th Vardhapan Ceremony of the Shirdi Sai temple in Palakkad. As soon as I reached Mohanji’s house, I met Him prostrated at His feet and got His blessings. Mohanji, very lovingly commanded me to freshen up and get ready to go the temple. Least at that point, did I know what I was going to witness soon! Anyway, I freshened up and wore a new dhoti that was gifted by Priti, and all excited, I went to Mohanji again with the fruit bag that Devi Amma had sent for Him.

Mohanji was sitting with Appa Murali, a great devotee of Maa Kali. Meeting various divine masters and receiving their blessings making my life extremely fulfilling, has been only possible due to my Gurudev, Mohanji’s grace.

The time came to hand over the fruit bag, I did explain to Mohanji that each fruit was for specific person and that the orange was for Him.

Soon after, all of us present in that room witnessed an amazing play of divine masters, exhibiting the oneness.

Devi Maa had evoked Hanumanji in front of us when she delivered me the fruits! As soon as Mohanji received the orange, His upper lip started to swell up and was steadily growing outwards, His eyes were intense. His face turned clearly appearing as Lord Hanuman’s face!

Mohanji - Lord Hanuman manifests on His face - 1,2- Dec 2017

Witnessing this, I had no other reaction but the Maruti stotra was flowing out of my mouth and tears flowing.

“Bhimrupi maharudra vajra Hanuman Maruti
Vanaari Anjanisuta Ramduta prabhanjna”

Mohanji - Lord Hanuman manifests on His face - 3- Dec 2017

It was as if time stopped till I finished Maruti Stotra. When I finished the chant, Mohanji looked at me and asked me if I had completed the stotra and then asked everyone to move on and get going towards Sai temple for the ceremony. He could barely open His mouth and speak.

I looked at Devadas and his eyes were closed and my sister Anila was looking at me, trying to tell me that it was Hanuman with her hand actions. I was very happy and felt that if Hanuman Ji was with us, Shree Rama was with us too! Later on, I realized that Shree Rama was waiting for Mohanji in the form of Sai Baba at the temple.

We all reached the temple and Mohanji was received with lot of respect. Mohanji then proceeded to carry out the Dhwajarohan – a flag hoisting ceremony to formally inaugurate the three-day long Vardhapan programme.

While standing in front of the flagpole, surrounded by a lot of people, His face continued to change.

Mohanji always reminds us that CONNECTION, CONVICTION and CONSISTENCY are key to spiritual growth and I realised how true this is today. With the heart filled with unconditional love and devotion for Guru, it’s possible to experience what usually seems unbelievable. When doubts appear as clouds in our mind, we fail to see the light of truth. Then again, if we surrender completely, ignoring doubts, truth appears right in front of our eyes and enters our heart. We become inseparably one with our Guru, like Hanumanji with Lord Ram.

Deep gratitude Mohanji, for Your grace of giving me this amazing darshan!

At your feet Father… as always…, Jai Shree Brahmarishi Mohanji

Experience sharing by Jelena Fassbender

I have gone through various difficult situations in my life in recent times. But since I’ve connected to Mohanji, they were not just bearable, but very often smooth and even elegant. After my divorce, l didn’t have a place to stay. Within two weeks, l moved into a beautiful apartment and it is all because of Mohanji’s Grace. Mohanji loves me and takes care of me every moment. For the last couple of months, I have even had an opportunity to travel with Him to various places in India. Being in the close proximity of such a powerful master is a very deep cleansing process for myself and definitely a ladder for my spiritual growth. He knows what we need, when we need. Everything is provided and taken care of. All we need is to be available and open to receive. During this time of travelling around India with Him, I have had many amazing life changing experiences. One of such experiences, which opened something completely new, very subtle, I would like to share with you here. It helped me to understand Him better.

Jelena and MohanjiOn 28th of January, it was the inauguration of the programme to celebrate the 4th Anniversary of Shirdi Sai Temple in Palakkad, Kerala. As a guest of honour, Mohanji was invited to inaugurate the celebration. A couple of us were staying with Mohanji, at His parents’ house and just before we went to the temple, Mahesh Bhalerao, who had come that morning from Bangalore, brought a bag of fruit for Mohanji. That was a present from Devi Amma, a very warm, sweet, powerful authentic Siddha, who loves Mohanji as her son.

At that moment, Mahesh told us, that Devi Amma was chanting Hanumanji’s mantra, while giving him the present for Mohanji! For those who are not familiar with the name Hanumanji, short explanation is that He was the bravest, the most loyal, persistent and ardent devotee of Lord Rama, who has a lot of value in scriptures like the Ramayana. In Hinduism He is one of the most worshipped deity, hidden behind the being who has a face like a monkey.

Mohanji is Hanumanji! Yes, Shiva has many forms!

In such a miraculous moment, we left the house and went to the Shirdi Sai temple. After He had received a warm welcome with priests applying sandalwood paste on His forehead and trustees garlanding him, Mohanji was invited to hoist the flag and begin the celebration. While standing in front of the flagpole, surrounded by a lot of people, His face continued to change. His upper lip became bigger and His cheeks became very firm, but He didn’t show any kind of confusion, on the contrary, Mohanji was standing there, as steady as a mountain. The moment He took the rope and started to raise the flag, I was blown away. His cheeks expanded even more, and the colour of His eyes changed into oily dark green.

His face continued to change. His upper lip became bigger and His cheeks became very firm.

After a very powerful whole-day ceremony, we came home.

Mila, Mohanji’s daughter ran into His arms, asking, “Papa, what happened to your upper lip, you have no teeth, I can’t see your teeth.” Mohanji was smiling like a child and said: “Papa has teeth, can’t you see them?”

After a couple of days, three of us were sitting with Him and talking. I couldn’t keep all the impressions from that particular day within me anymore!

“We saw You as Hanuman that day” I said. He was smiling at me and said, “Where does Hanuman sit, when Lord Krishna is a Charioteer? Hanuman sits on the flag. Those who have eyes to see, will see.” It is interesting that most people assembled at the flag hoisting ceremony did not see anything. They did NOT notice the change on Mohanji’s face!

It’s important for me to mention though that during my 3-month-long travel with Mohanji, never before this event or post this event day, have I seen any changes in Mohanji face! I am convinced that what we saw on that day is not an ordinal physiological change. This was indeed a strong message to us, whoever could see and understand it. I am definitely one of the lucky ones!

Thank you, Mohanji, for giving me the opportunity to see! Once You said, “We’re on the path of annihilation, not entertainment. I’m the fire, be at least the flame!” I am eternally grateful for having an opportunity to witness and to understand, for the first time, more clearly than ever, what it means to be an empty vessel. Thank you my beloved Guruji Mohanji for giving me a chance to experience the Truth!

It’s all Your grace!

Endless love and gratitude at your Lotus Feet.

 

Experience sharing by Priti Bharadwaj

The last 10 years of my life have been an onslaught of many emotional roller coasters, the last one being an unwell child which shook the very core of my existence. As a mother, I couldn’t do anything to help my suffering child except pray, chant, hold on to faith and practice very badly at times, patience that everything would come out fine.  With Mohanji’s ongoing support, divine guidance and blessings, individual prayers and distance healing sessions, grace flowed.  After some painful treatments, karmic healing and spiritual understanding which had to take place, recovery took place and she got better very rapidly. Thank you Mohanji for guiding me and for being with me.

Despite this unbelievable full recovery of almost two-and- a-half years of a child’s sickness, unbeknown to me, the journey had taken its toll on me. Suddenly, after two very active years of looking after a sick patient day and night, I had nothing to do, no one to fill my empty moments of inactivity and I began asking a lot of questions. I couldn’t sit quietly to do any of my spiritual practices which I don’t forget. I thought I had to do 5000 hours of chanting, breathing, etc. to raise my vibrational level and get me out of tamas!

The mind became overactive, scrupulously clever and devious. As I was closely watching my thoughts, as a witness, a thought came in through the back door and before I knew it, I was overloaded with 5000 thoughts. Tamas was setting in deep taking me away from my active self. I became a ‘couch potato’. My spirit was stagnating down, spirally downwards.

I didn’t have any deep experiences of any kind to solidify my conviction that a higher awareness exists or any conviction at that time to hold on to. It became a Catch-22 situation – the more I thought the more it took me away from my conviction and faith, even though I was honoured to have met and spent time with Mohanji on many occasions. My mind wanted to meet a deeper aspect of who Mohanji is. My mind wanted to know more, I wanted a deep inner revelation to see who Mohanji is, to see a facet of this divine consciousness that we call Mohanji.

I attended the 2017 Himalayan Retreat with Mohanji on the ghats of the river Ganges. It was 100% joyous, all my earthly five senses were to the max, and I was abuzz with the aromas of the Ganga Aarti incense sticks which the fresh Himalayan winds were bringing to the cold nose. Ah those unforgettable perfumes! The wonderful sounds of devotees’ bhajans and colourful sights of the melodious aarti on the ghats of Ram Jhula, dancing with Mohanji and other devotees – every moment was unforgettable. The crisp cold dips in the Ganges together with jugs of freezing cold water poured from our Guru’s hands cleaning away karmas from life times after life times. The delicious homemade scrumptious tasty vegan dishes all cooked fresh three times a day tingled my taste buds. Precious days!

These wonderful sunny days at the Divine Resort in Rishikesh were blissful to say the least, however, the last day was approaching and my heart was sad it was coming to an end. I was beginning to experience love which, for whatever reason, I had failed to receive as a young child. I selfishly wanted to spend more time in the presence of our Guru hoping that my heart chakra could open. Luckily, I realised very quickly, at the first Satsang Mohanji conducted, that I had come with an expectation. So, I decided that the best course was to go and spend some time alone after the retreat contemplating in an ashram to quieten my buzzy mind. However, to my surprise this was not to be the end. My Guru had other plans for me! This was just the beginning of my travels in India along with Mohanji. There was much more to come. I was fortunate to be invited to travel with Him along with a few other devotees, to many other locations. So, I was braced for the ride of my life. Oh boy!

Unimaginable days passed during which we met masters and avadhootas, and visited many samadhis and powerful temples. The other devotees talked about their own experiences of visits with powerful masters. Over the six years that I have been with Mohanji, I have read many accounts of fabulous deep unforgettable experiences/dreams/visits at the astral level from masters and gods. I had none of the above! I felt maybe I was not worthy of any such astral experience until I perform at least 5000 million hours of Japa, or that I should clear more karmic baggage in order to receive. See where the mind could take you?

Days passed during which we met masters and avadhootas, and visited many samadhis and powerful temples.

I had, however, experienced several instances where Mohanji protected me during my travels in India in some very tough situations: one was when our Guru made possible a small tyre fixing shop to be miraculously there in the middle of the vast un-inhabitable barren land in the middle of the Indian countryside.  My punctured tyre got repaired by the tyre shop keeper and I got to Pune airport in plenty of time for flight! Thank you Mohanji.

I was with Mohanji at his parents’ home in Palakkad recently, along with a couple of others. There was a special occasion of the 4th anniversary of Palakkad Shirdi Sai temple. Mohanji was one of the chief guests invited to attend this 3-day long programme. On the first day, Mohanji was supposed to hoist the flag and inaugurate the function. In the morning while we were busy getting ready for the day, I found that I had become the unofficial photographer (with my small Samsung phone which didn’t really take any good HD close-ups) as it was the only thing available.

Mahesh arrived very early that morning from Bangalore directly from Devi Amma who had sent fruit for Mohanji, Devi ji and Mila. Earlier as Devi Amma had handed this to Mahesh she had chanted a mantra invoking the deities’ essence into this gift, especially Lord Hanuman.

When Mohanji took this gift from Mahesh, I noticed that Mohanji’s lower lip had swollen up and the upper lip was steadily doing the same and His eyes were intense but still. By this time, Mahesh recognised Mohanji’s transformation and was on his knees chanting, he understood whom Devi Amma had invoked. I was slowly starting to realise what was happening in front of my very own eyes. I looked at Jelena to see if she had clocked what was going on. I saw from her face that she had also noticed the miracle that was unfolding. Mohanji’s face was physically changing in front of us into Hunumanji’s face, the half-monkey half-human devotee/servant/son of Ram and Sita.

Mohanji - Lord Hanuman manifests on His face - 13,14 - Dec 2017

I prostrated at Mohanji’s feet, Mahesh and Jelena did the same, tears started to well up, but I was in disbelief. I couldn’t believe what was taking place as my overactive mind was confused. I began to take photos snapping from as many different angles as possible to make sure what I was seeing was true and it was all recorded for other devotees to see. Frantically I kept on clicking pictures. None of the photos showed or mirrored exactly what I was physically seeing, that of, Mohanji’s lips increasing in size and cheeks puffing up. Why were my photos not showing what I could clearly see?

We had to leave on time to attend the flag hoisting ceremony at the Sai temple. Mohanji is always very punctual no matter what! No one said anything and there was a complete silence, but my mind was not silent – it was racing like mad in disbelief at what I was at first hand witnessing. Hanumanji was right here in front of me, the greatest devotee of God was present here in this very room, then car but for some reason I couldn’t take photos of this phenomenon!

I wanted to go live on Facebook and record all this or at least tell the whole world what was happening, even just to tell some of my close friends who knew Mohanji, what was happening. The problem was in my utter disbelief in this wonderful darshan of our greatest true Bhakta (devotee). My photos were at that time reflecting my inner self – my disbelief!  In order to record this miracle taking place I had to shut the mind down. Digest, accept and let everything unfold in silence, no questions.  Stop doing and just witness this beautiful miracle taking place in its full entity without the mind. Realisation dawned on me, I was not present. The mind had taken over.

Mohanji was briefed on the flag hoisting procedure and timings and my own awareness of the present moment was growing, I slowly started to see in my photos Hanumanji raising the orange flag. My mind was emptying slowly but surely. Silence was being established after a long time of noise.

Mohanji - Lord Hanuman manifests on His face - 15 Dec 2017
He was silent to the whole miraculous phenomenon that took place the day before. Mohanji hardly spoke about the incident at all.

It was later explained to me that at the top of Arjuna’s Chariot there’s an orange flag with a picture of Hanumanji flying high lovingly and powerfully protecting the chariot and the people in it. One incident from the Ramayana touched my heart. During the construction of the bridge from India to Sri Lanka Hanumanji’s devotion to Ram and Sita was so fervent and resolute, that He grew in size and laid across over the sea from India to Shri Lanka, so Ram could step over Him without falling into the sea, and continue His mission to rescue Sita from the Ravan’s clutches.

Many times during the inauguration day, my heart felt full with gratitude. Time and time again my eyes filled up with tears in realising the enormity of how fortunate we were to have such an unpretentious Guru in our lives. He works unselfishly and tirelessly every single moment of the day through His conviction and purity to raise the vibrations of the earth towards betterment for all species. Mohanji’s swollen face as Hanumanji Himself was fully visible for all to see and wonder, but He remained sincere and a true humble silent devotee to the Nath tradition. There was no huge drama or speech, He was the witness to the witness. Later, I showed Mohanji the pictures I put up on my personal Facebook profile, these were shots of Him as Hanumanji and still He was silent to the whole miraculous phenomenon that took place the day before. Mohanji hardly spoke about the incident at all.

A few days before this incident Mohanji had been asked by an old sincere true devotee/ priest of a Hanumanji temple just outside of Trissur, what would Mohanji like as a request to go forward. Mohanji answered without any hesitation was simply “please protect the entire Mohanji global family”. He could have asked for anything but chose (due to the turbulent planetary situation with Saturn) to ask for protection of the entire Mohanji group. The old priest said, “It is done”. Many people have been writing of personal experience where they have felt Mohanji’s hand protecting them.

Today for me there are no burning questions in my mind as to what happened on that day of the flag hoisting, only inner realisation that it is only through silence of the mind, acceptance, of what is without judgement or documentary and in increasing awareness, true faith and patience that all your desires, intentions and thoughts get revealed. Lifetimes get cleansed in its own good time by the Guru, no sooner or later. My wish to see a deeper facet of Mohanji was granted. Befriend silence and much more will come to you. Wow, that simple!

My deepest of the deepest gratitude to Mohanji for giving me this precious opportunity to travel with Him and Mohanji family, allowing me to be a witness to a deeper side of Him, HANUMANJI! Allowing me to ask Him questions even though He knew they were sometimes irrelevant and mind-oriented questions. He patiently answered them with clarity and most times seeing ‘the penny drop’ in me.

I thank You Mohanji for every moment in Your presence even now, You are 1000 of miles away from me but am aware You are here with me in essence, in everything bathed in pure divinity. Please accept this account of my experience at Your lotus feet.

Jai Shri Brahmarishi Mohanji

“Those who have eyes will see”:

The Mahesh’s, Jelena’s and Priti’s experiences of about the appearance of Lord Hanuman in Mohanji’s face have been direct experiences and indeed experiences that will remain one of the highest experiences of their lives as well as everyone else’s who reads this.

During the Rishikesh retreat in December 2017, a view from Mohanji’s room window also spotted as Hanuman’s face directly looking at His room. This was spotted by two devotees and was captured by their ordinary phone camera.

Back in 2014, on Hanuman Jayanthi, Lata and Ganesh’s residence in Virginia USA, Hanuman appeared on Mohanji’s photo! On the morning of Hanuman Jayanthi, while Lata had already left for work, Ganesh performed the special puja on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanthi, offered prasad and aarti. Just before leaving the Puja room, he suddenly felt the urge to take a picture and took out his phone to click one. However, since he was in a rush, without seeing the photo that he had just clicked, he rushed to his office. On his way, while stuck at a traffic light, he took out his phone to call someone. Suddenly the photo that he had clicked before leaving home, popped up. The vision in the photo was astounding for him, as it showed Mohanji’s face as Hanuman’s face. This was a photo taken in a room with normal sunlight, no flashing lights used or no trick photography done. An ordinary phone clicking a normal photograph, had indeed captured an extraordinary vision. This was an indication of a very high value, that his devotion had been accepted and divine presence had been exhibited! Whether you are in proximity of the master or thousands of miles away, the true connection with consciousness, together with devotion and surrender can bring forth any miracles! Here is the extraordinary photo that was captured by Ganesh’s ordinary camera, leaving a powerful thought for everyone!

Mohanji Hanumanji by Ganesh
Whether you are in proximity of the master or thousands of miles away, the true connection with consciousness, together with devotion and surrender can bring forth any miracles!

Mohanji’s stature is such that, in a very subtle and unassuming way, He shows His reality to the people who are very much connected to His consciousness, without much hype about anything. Connection to His consciousness being the key, whether in the physical proximity or not whoever is destined to experience Mohanji’s multiple dimensions will indeed get a chance to see it. Divine miracles will be a reality to devotees when there is pure and unconditional love and surrender to the master. Merger with the supreme consciousness then is not far away!

“Beware. Be aware. I am not another. I am not Rama, Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Sai, Hanuman as well as any masters or avatars of the past or future. I am Mohanji of the present time. I am born as Mohanji and will die as Mohanji. When “I” do not exist, everything exists, including this one that is known as Mohanji. Be clear. Do not be deluded. Do NOT connect to me as someone else, or else you will be disappointed. Your superimposition will not work on me. Connect to me, if you want to, as Mohanji, accepting all the weaknesses and strengths that this incarnation carries.” Mohanji

He and His Father Are One

Written by Viji Sagar, USA

Mohanji pada Pooja

It was a cold and dreary winter afternoon with a constant drizzle.  It was cold and wet, a perfect day to stay indoor cuddled up with a nice book.  One could feel the chillness  penetrating all the way to the bones.  None of this would stop me from driving an hour to bring home Mohanji’s padukas. I have been eagerly waiting for them a few weeks now, and I couldn’t wait any longer.

Once the padukas were home, they were received with full honor and arti was performed before being placed on the altar.  It was late when we came home so I had planned to do pada pooja the next day when I came back from work. Being the first day of the work week, I got extremely busy.  The same thing repeated the next day and the day after. A couple of days slipped by without doing the pada puja,  so I convinced myself that I would do the puja on Thursday which was an auspicious day anyway.

Thursday rolled around and I went through the usual routine of work and the long drive home completely forgetting about my commitment to do pada puja.  Around 7pm, I was lazing around on the couch watching TV, when there was this urge for me to get up, because I had to do something, but just didn’t know what it was.  I tried to ignore it and focused on the show I was watching but that urge intensified to the point that I could not enjoy the show any more.  At the same time, I also noticed that my little dog was sitting in front of me just staring at me as if he wanted to say something. When I got up to get him a treat, he just walked to the altar and sat next to it wagging his tail, as if to remind me to do the pada puja.

I quickly got the stuff together for the puja and realized I did not have fresh flowers.  How could I do pada puja without fresh flowers for my beloved Mohanji’s padukas? So once again, Lady Tamas took over. I told myself that I would buy fresh flowers and do the puja on Friday morning.  In the meantime, I decided to chant the Sai mantra and played the Sai Sahasranaama on YouTube from my phone. I left my phone in the next room and settled down on the floor to chant Sai mantra.  As I sat down to chant, I looked at Sai Baba’s pic and thought to myself, Baba is senior anyway, I will chant for Him on Thursday and tomorrow I will do the pada puja. It is absolutely ridiculous, the games the mind plays on you when you engage it.

I started the chanting and after just nine chants of the Sai mantra, miraculously the music switched over to Mohanji Gayatri mantra. I was shocked and confused. How could this happen? The Sai mantra was playing on YouTube and the Mohanji Gayatri was on iTunes? The phone was in the other room so I could not have done it by mistake and there was no one else in the house. I dared not question or analyze further at this point. 🙂  I picked up some viboothi, and placing it on the padukas instead of flowers, I completed the pada puja by chanting the Gayatri.  I proceeded to perform aarati and after bowing to Sai Baba and Mohanji and apologizing for my ignorance. The phone automatically switched back to Sai Sahasranaama,  as if to tell me apology accepted 🙂

Mohanji pada Pooja 1.jpg

There were multiple lessons for me in this episode.  1. There is no hierarchy in the Guru parampara.  It is one unified force that works together for our evolution and ultimately liberation.  2. Material things (flowers, incense etc.) are not a requirement to show our love and reverence to our guru. It is all for our personal satisfaction. 3. When needed, Gurus communicate to us through multiple mediums, be it a dog or a phone. 4. MOST IMPORTANTLY, if you make a commitment to your guru, He ALWAYS shows up with open arms to receive your offering of love.  Remember to keep your end of the commitment.

Many Mohanji family members were Sai Baba devotees first, before they met Mohanji.  In my case it was reversed. Mohanji was my guru first before I became aware of Sai Baba.  Through this experience sharing, I hope to help those who question the stature of Mohanji, or still see a distinction between Sai Baba and Mohanji, to realize that HE and HIS Father are ONE.
