Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7 – “The hands that protect”

hands mohanji

We conclude Chapter 7 of Mohanji Satcharita with this soul-stirring sharing by our dear Preeti Duggal. This experience shows that we may forget our beloved Parabrahma by succumbing to mind games but He never forgets us. As Mohanji says, “I am always with you, holding your hand!”

Please read our earlier stories published in Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7.

The hands that protect

by Preeti Duggal

Due to some reason, I was very upset for the past two days. Tears kept flowing down on their own as if they knew my pain. Yesterday I felt as if I was all alone in this world and no one really understood me. This thought depressed and alienated me further from everyone. I felt mentally exhausted with the intensity of these thoughts and suddenly I had the urge to lie down. As soon as I was in bed, I slept and rapidly went into a dream state.

What I describe here is the conversation that took place between Mohanji and I. In hindsight, it was not a dream at all, but an astral event that took place to help me understand the deeper meaning of my pain.

hands

I saw myself with Mohanji. He was sitting as usual on His chair and I was on the floor next to Him. He took my hand and held it between His. I saw tears in His eyes and He said, “I really feel sad from inside when my people are unhappy. Everyone must go through the grinding of karma in this world, but don’t worry I’m always by your side holding your hand. You’re never alone as I am always walking along with you.” Suddenly my eyes opened, and it took me a couple of seconds to realize where I was. After waking up, I immediately felt better and did not feel depressed.

“Karma is not punishment oriented. It is accountability oriented. You are accountable for all your deeds, including all thoughts, words, and actions.” – Mohanji

In the evening I went to see Mohanji at the ashram as I do every day. He was surrounded by people, so I prostrated at His feet and went into the kitchen to get His dinner ready. About half an hour later, Aishwarya, our beautiful daughter in the ashram went to ask Him about dinner. He responded, “Whenever Duggal is ready with it.” I went up to Him and informed Him that the dinner was ready and served. He called everyone to eat with Him. By sharing food, He expresses His love and showers blessings on everyone visiting Him at the ashram.

unconditional love

After dinner, He came to me and said, “Thank you Duggal for everything that you do for us, you are the heart of this house.” When I glanced into His eyes, they gave me the same reassurance that I had in the morning. I said, “Mohanji, if I am the heart then you are the heartbeat, without which there is no existence, we are dead.” At that moment, I felt like falling at His feet and thanking Him for everything He does for us. He never shows His magnanimity and is always humble. On the other hand, we want importance and acknowledgement for every little thing we do. When He says, I am with you, He delivers and stays true to His word. Thank you Mohanji for always holding my hand and taking me through this cycle called life. I surrender every breath at your lotus feet.

“When I say, “I’m with you” I mean it. Because I don’t need the body to be with you.”

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7 – “The Miraculous Power of Purity”

Mohanji light

In this 7th Chapter of Mohanji Satcharita, we share another experience from a devotee on divine protection. At times when we are battered by the storms of life, the only anchor we can turn to is our Guru or God. When we have complete faith and devotion, His presence, guidance and grace will help us overcome the trials and tribulations of life. He will hold our hand and help us face difficulties with courage. Mageswari shares with us some of her most difficult times and how Mohanji’s love and protection helped her face and accept these situations.

Please read about other experiences in Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7

In Chennai, volunteers have been conducting the Power of Purity meditation at a cancer hospital every Sunday, since July 8th, 2018. This recount is by a patient who is getting healed through the power of this meditation. Here is a translation of her audio in Tamil.

By Mageswari, Chennai, India

Namaste. My name is Mageswari and I come from Thoothukudi. I am a 40 year old cancer patient.  In 2016, I had cancer in my colon. An open surgery was carried out to remove the cancer and then a colostomy bag was placed in position. After the big operation in 2016, another big operation was done in 2017. When I went for a check-up in 2018, they told me again that there was a tumour in the lungs. Through biopsy, it was found to be a malignant tumour and they gave me chemotherapy.

Mageswari and her mother
Mageswari in meditation (in green)

One Sunday in February 2019, while on chemotherapy, I participated in Mohanji’s Power of Purity meditation. At a certain time during the meditation, He guides us to thank all the people whom we like, and also those we dislike. This helps us develop positive thinking.  At that time, I had a friend who suddenly refused to talk to me and told me that she wouldn’t come to my home anymore.  My parents felt very bad and they were wondering what to do as this person refused to come home.  I was in the hospital and my parents at home. A day after the meditation, I told my parents that God will take care.  Two days later, that person came home to talk to my parents.  I believe this happened only because of the meditation blessings.

Mohanji on thought

As I had a problem in the lungs, the doctors told me that the lungs had developed an infection.  There was blood in my phlegm all the time.  During the meditation, I placed this request to God – that I should not get this again. Doctors were unable to diagnose why the phlegm had blood.  They did cytology tests, microbiology tests, an ultrasound scan, and a CT scan, but no report gave a proper solution.  But in prayer, when I prayed sincerely from my heart to God, to look into my health, the next day itself blood stopped coming in my phlegm.  I am healthy now.

The following Sunday, for the second time, when the volunteers came for the meditation, I prayed that there should be a cure for cancer. Like old times, this world should have peace and a natural situation should prevail. Just like how our grandparents led healthy lives 20 years back, the world should be free of life-threatening diseases such as cancer and AIDS. We should live together as joint families. The world should be saved from all this quickly. I have faith that my Guru will fulfill my wishes soon. Thank you. Namaste.

The Guru’s protective umbrella

Mohanji

This testimonial by Manjiri Bhalerao reiterates Mohanji’s protection to people connected to Him at all times, whichever part of the world they are in. Enjoy the two narratives about Mohanji helping Manjiri in her hour of distress and making a major accident turn into a milder one with His grace.  

Guru’s protective umbrella at all times

By Manjiri Bhalerao, Canada

The following prayer conveys my sincere feelings for my Gurudev, Brahmarishi Mohanji.

Tvameva Mata Ch Pita Tvameva. (You are mother and father to me)

TvamevaBandhush-CaSakhaTvameva. (You are my only relative and friend)

TvamevaVidyaaDravinnamTvameva. (You are my wisdom and my wealth)

TvamevaSarvam Mam Deva Deva. (You are everything to me, my Lord)

I would like to share my experience of Mohanji’s grace and protection twice within a year. Both the times, my husband Mahesh was travelling and was away from home.

The first incident happened when Mohanji was in Brazil in April 2018. Mahesh was also travelling with Mohanji in Brazil and I was in Toronto with my kids.

In the Toronto Yoga Conference, where Mohanji Foundation Canada had a booth, I was going to volunteer in that booth. Just couple of days prior to this programme, I had a mishap at home that brought to me yet another incidence of how Mohanji was protecting me. On this day, I was to cook food for the kids and placed a pan on the stove. I poured oil into the pan and as the oil turned hot, before I knew what was happening, my left hand brushed against the handle of the pan and the pan toppled upside down. The entire hot oil in the pan splashed on my leg and foot. Out of the pain from hot oil and more so from the fear of impact on my ability to volunteer for the programme, I cried out to Mohanji! It was just so spontaneous to reach out to my Gurudev in my distress situation. While chanting “Jai Mohanji, Jai Mohanji” in my mind, I held my foot under water and then applied an ointment for burns on it. With the amount of hot oil that came on my feet, I would have surely got blisters. But to my amazement, I got no blisters. Just dark patches of burns in my foot. So the next day when I had to travel for the Yoga event, I was able to put on my shoes and could travel there and was able to volunteer as planned earlier. Needless to say, had the injury been more serious I would not have been able to put on shoes and travel to the location in an unusually cold April in Toronto. I realised how Mohanji took care of everything. A potential big mishap just ended with a minor incident and I was able to  accomplish my commitment. This incident was verified by Mohanji when Mahesh spoke to Him about it.

The second incident happened recently in January 2019. It was a usual cold winter afternoon in Toronto. Three devotees (Alpa, Parmeshji, and Geetaji) and I were returning from Mohanji Datta Tapovan Ashram, Amaranth after attending Sai Vrat Katha (story of Sai). It was the first month when we had started conducting this monthly ritual in the ashram. I was supposed to drop Alpa at her place in Brampton, and then head back home after dropping Geeta and Parmesh on the way in Scarborough. It was decided that before dropping Alpa, we would deliver Sai Vrat Katha prasad at a Sai devotees’ place in Brampton. As we were on our way, Alpa told me to drop her at her place and she would deliver the prasad herself as I was getting late. I was not familiar with the roads, so Alpa told me to change the lane and take a right turn. As I was about to do it, my car collided with another white car coming from behind. It happened so suddenly and the other car (which was also driven by a lady) halted several meters away. We were all dazed by the sudden impact. We got down from the car and inspected the damage. With Mohanji’s grace, my car was damaged minimally on the front right side. Nothing happened to the passengers sitting on the right side in my car and the other lady driver whose car was damaged was also surprisingly calm. Her car was damaged quite extensively on the left side, including damaged doors and mirrors.

M-family members Ketan and Manisha came to the location to help me with the formalities after the collision. Gauravji (whose house we were supposed to drop the prasad) also came twice to the location to talk to the lady and her husband (who came later). We were out in the cold standing for quite some time discussing the next steps, and after making a few calls to Mahesh in India (who was with Mohanji in Bangalore), we decided to go to the collision centre.

While I was still going through the formalities, I understood that It was Mohanji’s grace that we escaped unhurt with minimal damage to car. Not only this, Mohanji made sure that I was not alone during this incident. Alpa, Ketan, Manisha, Geeta, and Parmesh were all with me till we finished the formalities, which took a couple of hours after the collision. Everyone was tired after a long day (ashram vrat pooja and the collision). Manisha promptly went and bought hot coffee for all of us and we all departed. They also called me later to make sure I had reached home safely. As I thought of this accident, I couldn’t thank Mohanji enough for protecting us, looking after us and comforting us.

When Mahesh recounted this incident to Mohanji in India, before he could say anything, Mohanji said He knew what had happened and asked Mahesh what he wanted to say. He had taken care of everything. This incident taught me to be more mindful and careful in the future, though Guru’s protection is always there.

My heart is full of immense gratitude to my Guru Mohanji, for being with us and protecting us at all times. Words are not enough to express my gratitude and writing a testimonial is one of the ways where I can express my gratitude to Him. When He says, “I am with you,” He makes sure we are under His protective shield (kavach) and saves us from any storm in our lives. Only by living His teachings can we fully express our gratitude. My salutations (koti koti pranaams) to my Guru Mohanji and the entire Guru Mandala for showering us with grace and blessings. My prostrations (sashtanga namaskar) and deepest gratitude for everything ‘O Gurudev!’

I am truly humbled, grateful beyond words O Gurudev, Oh Mohanji! (Baba), THANK YOU so much for EVERYTHING, a million times.

 Bless us all to live our lives with your teachings.

Walking the Talk

Awakening

By Nameshri Chetty

Jai Mohanji!

The grace factor flows through so effortlessly if we allow ourselves to feel and see beyond the mind.

Our lives are filled with lots of life lessons, but along with that are the most divine experiences of the Self. I now see, feel and learn about life in ways that I (the Nameshri before meeting Mohanji) would never have fathomed. It has only been through the grace of Mohanji that I have come to start to understand or rather am starting to see the magic.

I write this as my proof that Truth is Real! 

As many of you know, I have been very active in the Mohanji family for about 6+ years now and not once has Mohanji’s grace not been evident. All along, there has been one underlying trait that shows up for all those who are with Him. He truly cares and loves without limitations.

Leading up to mid-2018, my karmic experiences seemed to be on hyper-drive! Gosh, I am so serious; it’s not funny but I pulled through, leaving me with some wear and tear. Just to fill you in, my son had left to live on his own; my daughter left with her dad (taking my dogs); my helper of 17 years passed away and I sold my home, packed up a home of 15 years all by myself, all in the space of 6 months.

Many a time we see our lives unravelling before us and think “Oh my God, why is this happening, why me and what now,” but little do we understand or see the grace in those experiences. All that happens is perfectly coordinated so that we can be the best version of ourselves, always giving us opportunities to rise above and succeed.

During this time and leading up to these events, Mohanji advised me to come to India. Once all my responsibilities were complete, I packed two suitcases and left for India. Please note I had no idea where I would be staying or what I was going to do there. It was the first time I flew abroad alone. My family in Durban questioned me about where I was going to stay and what I would be doing and all I said was that it did not matter (as I knew Mohanji would not put me in a mud hut.

As I took off, en route to India, I had no expectations but had a sense of courage that this was a new journey. I was received so lovingly at the Bangalore ashram. The first few days,  okay honestly, the first week, I was a zombie,   I just ate and slept, I felt as if I was out of my body. In truth, if you had seen me then, your jaw would have dropped.  As the days went on, Mohanji advised me to rest, have no agenda and just be. He advised me not to travel or do anything that needed effort but rather to be in that sacred space. I had completely disengaged from my life in South Africa (besides my children). I was totally off the grid, as they say. Mohanji opened His home to me so that I could heal and rest. He did not ask me for anything in return and neither did any of the others; they just showered me with love. As the days went by, I began to find my flow in the house, helped out and began to be myself again.  Life seemed to go on, everything had total transparency and everyone had respect for all as there seemed to be an understanding of a family (seeing that by grace you are there). I felt at ease with a sense of peace. Even when He was not physically there, I felt no pressure to deliver (which is how we all live our lives each and every moment). There was just an abundance of compassion, love and care shown. He knew I needed a place of safety during my transition period – hence India. Mohanji had made sure that I was comfortable at any given time. Mohanji had mentioned many a time about doing things that were karmically correct. On asking what this meant, He said, “Where your mind is at ease” (I was so accustomed to saying yes even when I did not approve). He allowed me to be vulnerable and speak my Truth without judgement as I was going through different phases of life. All that I knew had once again been ripped out from under my feet; I felt totally devastated. Mohanji filled my space with understanding of my situation, empowering me to accept my situation without victim hood. I cried for many days, but that too ceased only to be replaced with laughter as Mohanji’s presence dimmed the sadness and filled it up with hope. Mohanji showed total respect for my space and my priorities. Not once was I made to feel like I was not capable or insignificant. The energy at the ashram was something that I had never experienced; there is a sense of immense gratitude and security when entering. Imagine after a long trip, having carried a heavy backpack, you reach your resting point where you can remove your baggage – “Ahhh! What a weight off your shoulders!” One can feel and sense Masters and beings around. I felt totally in the lap of the Divine, I had a knowing that all was taken care of for my highest good. I lived there without any questions, expectations or pressure; only a feeling of pure acceptance. This was from Mohanji as well as the other devotees who came and went from the ashram. None of them pried, questioned or bothered me, they allowed me to be. They went out of their way to make my stay comfortable in India seeing that I was a foreigner, starting from food, shopping, entertainment, travel; in fact, it was a collaboration of all to assist me. I actually saw this trait in each individual where people got together to help each other out to get stuff done without any complaint. An example: I needed medicines for my mom who had suffered a stroke. The Mohanji family rallied together from getting a prescription to contacting a pharmacist to get it for me (definitely Mohanji’s example). Mohanji Himself called to enquire about a space at a clinic for me (now really who in today’s world would take time out to do that.) I had such profound experiences during my stay but that will be shared later.

mohanji expression

Those who know Him have heard Him say, “I take full responsibility for my people, I will not let you fall, I will not leave your hand, I walk with you. THIS IS ALL TRUE. Mohanji is always there! 

In today’s world, it is very hard to find an individual who epitomizes TRUTH. What I mean is –

“MOHANJI WALKS THE TALK.”

Mohanji 1

In my small capacity, I am proof that He is unconditional beyond measure. In these times that we are living in, many a good deed goes under scrutiny, with lots of frills added but in truth it’s just being good. It took me some time to write this as feelings of grace cannot be put into words, but in saying that, I know that those reading will feel through the words. Before going to India, my faith was tested in many ways (there was lots of noise all around me and I could not feel my Truth).  I was totally depleted mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually (which Mohanji knew about), but this did not deter Him from taking care of me. Through this period of my life, I saw how many life times of karmic bindings were dissolved and how He gently made sure each individual was safe , so we can go on to our next chapter. I saw how He dissolved attachments to relationships, ideas, concepts and judgements; so that I could be free to BE ME (as He knew that I was never free). To many it would be, “Oh my gosh! How sad,” but for me, I say, “Thank you, Mohanji.” He made sure my son was working and independent; my daughter was safe, and my responsibilities dissolved; only for me to be free. Acceptance of my current space without any baggage – be it shame, regret, blame or guilt is where I am. Basically, I have no agenda but just to be! HOW AWESOME! I am still on the mend like many of us but I am definitely a lot stronger than before I went to India. I have always been a very strong individual but this life lesson literally brought me to my knees and the only person to pick me up was Mohanji!

Mere Mahadev (my Lord Shiva), I surrender graciously and humbly at Your feet as You are the beginning and end of all that is and is not.

“I glide on the breath of Your grace”

(Please note that sharing MY JOURNEY has left me vulnerable (open for anything) but the bigger picture is that if I can inspire/help or make a difference in someone else’s life, why not. Only then am I living my Guru’s teachings.)

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 6 – “A silent protector”

Mohanji on every-answer-is-within-you

The seventh story in the 6th chapter of Mohanji Satcharita shows how our beloved Para Brahma transforms our lives the moment we connect with Him. He protects and heals us, holding our hand and guiding us to surf through the gigantic waves that engulf us periodically. We then cruise through the journey with the deep faith and assurance that He will show us the way towards our desired goal!

Please read other transformation stories in Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 6.

The silent protector

By Nameshri Chetty, South Africa

It has been some time since I put pen to paper, but I am ready to share some more of my journey with you. In saying that, prior to meeting Mohanji physically, I was totally unaware of my true existence, I would say that I was just living.  Now, with His teachings and seeing the example He sets, I know that I have a purpose and that’s very powerful!

So here we go from where I last left off regarding my journey with Mohanji.

Kailash 2016 was as usual epic, the grace, love and joy that is Mahadev (Lord Shiva) lingered in my every breath. As Mohanji says,

Kailash is not for the chancers as it unleashes all that is not Shiva. So be prepared for your world to be in total disarray, all that you thought was tangible becomes intangible.

My son was diagnosed with cancer in Jan 2017. My golly gosh, that was a total blow. As you know, I am a single mother of two children. So what happens now? How was I going to pull through this with all the responsibilities of being both, a mother and a father to my children?

In saying that, not for one moment did I lose my faith or calm that all will be okay. I saw how Mohanji had elevated the intensity of this karmic lesson. My son was diagnosed in the early stages; we managed to get an appointment with a top oncologist within the same week of the diagnosis, keeping in mind that it usually takes weeks to see a specialist.

On liaising with Mohanji, He assured me that all will be okay and that’s all I needed. During my son’s treatment I felt as if I was just breathing through all the responsibilities, everything happened smoothly, as Mohanji had literally and figuratively made things flow. Each day, each chemo, each doctor’s visit, I was just calm. During this time I stepped down from all my other commitments and just focused on my home as there was no support from family, friends or his father.

As a mother, having your child go through cancer is scary and even more so when you are alone. There is no one to hold your hand and assure you that it will be okay. Many would ask how I can be so calm and not crying or angry with all that was happening, but within me I knew that I had a SILENT PROTECTOR WITH ME!

lion

We had many a day of tantrums, anger, fear, sadness, self-pity and blame was thrown at me, but I remained calm. In all of this, all I saw was Mohanji’s grace giving me the strength and courage to fulfill my duties as a mother, to care for my family. My son only lost his hair after the last chemo; if he had lost his hair in between it would have been intensely hard for us as he is a young man.

In August 2017 my son was clear of cancer, Jai Mohanji!!!  Only with His grace did we pull through.

Through His teachings Mohanji has taught us about the lessons that we have to individually go through and boy, have I gone through some. They also say that as you get closer to the fire it gets hotter.

It takes immense maturity and courage to follow a living master who walks the pathless path. None of His expressions may conform to the norms of our conditioned mind. Mental frames will keep breaking. Sometimes you will feel you have fallen into a bottomless pit, totally helpless, confused and insecure. Thus the master will peel away all our mental conditioning which we have consciously or unconsciously collected over lifetimes. Those with fears and prejudices will not make it. Those who dare will come out as pure gold from the pyre of ego. When one owns this state, there is no separation.

Mere Mahadev (My Lord Shiva), I surrender graciously and humbly at your feet as you are the beginning and end of all that is and all that is not.

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 6 – “Lessons learnt from my Gurudev”

Lessons learnt from my Gurudev, Shri Brahmarishi Mohanji

By Neelu (Mohana Bhakti Priya)

Lessons Learnt Neelu

My Gurudev, koti koti pranaam at Your lotus feet!

It takes  immense penance of many lifetimes to get the grace of a Sathguru like Mohanji. I am one of the most fortunate souls who have had this grace, in this lifetime (I hope the last one!) I have been experiencing unfathomable love and compassion from Him, right from the first moment I came to know about Him. Since then, He has made me learn so many important lessons in  life, which have transformed and chiseled me. He always lets you be yourself and also transforms you to be a better person. The lessons which I learnt from Him and could adapt in my life are as follows:

Time is precious

Having started work for the Mohanji Foundation as a FB page editor and making His devotional videos, I know exactly how valuable time is and how we can spend our spare time in useful and selfless activities.

He made me learn to work even while handling my kids. Most of my devotional videos were made while putting my younger son to sleep: with one hand I would pat him to sleep and with the other free hand, I would make devotional videos for Him on my mobile and also on my laptop. This  continues to the present time when I am making the ‘daily quote’ posters. Thus, He made me learn how to use my limited free time wisely with the available resources. He has transformed me so much that, I now never waste my time, not even for a few minutes. There is always some work to do, either for my family, or for the Mohanji Foundation.

If the Will is present, He paves the way for you…

Mohanji made me learn what actually will power is, and how God or Guru makes the job smooth, if you have the will to carry out the activities. When I volunteered for the Mohanji Foundation, I did not know how I could do it. I was a housewife and a full time mother. My only hobby thus far had been clicking pictures of my kids and a small stint at writing poetry. Mohanji made use of these not-so-perfect interests of mine and put them to full use in my volunteering. I started to write small poems about Him when I was overwhelmed with devotion for Him, and they transformed into devotional videos in just six months’ time!

All these were done just because of Him. Only the will was mine. He showed me how to utilize time, made me learn the required skills and even guided me to the required tools necessary  for these jobs.

Compassion is the highest quality

Mohanji made it clear to me through numerous experiences, that love and compassion are the highest qualities in any human being. I was always a soft-hearted person from the beginning, but He made me more compassionate and also introduced me to the concept of unconditional love. Now, I always think of how to be helpful and compassionate to other beings (as per my capacity), be it humans, animals or birds.

Guru is all Gods. Guru is the closest!

It’s my good fortune that since childhood, I have been connected to God and the Guru Tattva through many Masters like Shirdi Sai Baba, Sripada Srivallabha etc. Before Mohanji happened in my life, I knew a Guru was no less than God and is the closest to our hearts. But after Mohanji came into my life, I am actually experiencing it in every moment of my waking, dream and sleep states. All other relationships seem so temporary, even the closest ones! Now, He is my mother, my father, my child, my friend, my God and my Guru, all rolled into one. My whole being craves  to be in His consciousness every moment.

Patience

Mohanji made me learn about patience by handling me with utmost care and affection every time I fell. He lets me make mistakes, waits patiently so that I can rise again (though in actual fact it is He who lifts me up) and also makes me learn what to do and how to do. And also, through various instances He made me understand that everything comes at its own sweet time. We just have to practice patience.

Gratitude

I truly understood the term gratitude only after witnessing Mohanji’s love for me. Every moment I feel gratitude towards Him as He is the life force for me. I owe my every breath and every moment of my life to Him. In short I can say He is keeping me alive.  I have also learnt to be grateful  for all the simple yet important things in my life, which we usually take for granted.

Connection to His Consciousness is everything

I connected to Mohanji very deeply from the time I learnt about Him, even though I hadn’t met Him personally. It took me a year and half to have His physical darshan (beholding and being seen by a revered person or a deity). I have not attended any retreats or any pilgrimages with Him. I have met Him only  a few times in these three years and that too for a very short time. In spite of this, connecting to His Consciousness gave me everything; His overflowing love, protection for me and my family members, His guidance, His blessings. The list is too long to state… He even talks to me and also scolds me in a language which only the two of us can understand! He is with me always. Wherever I go, He comes with me. He enjoys movies, music and food with me. He reassures me that He is always with me.  So in short, connecting to His Consciousness or remembering Him always, brings Him to you. He comes to you, if you are unable to go to Him physically. The only thing needed is 100% connection.

Surrender

Sri Sai Satcharita is the book that made me aware of who a Sathguru really is. Even though I read about surrender there, I understood it completely only after Mohanji came into my life. Till then, I understood the concept of surrender as that of a slave. But there was more to it, which Mohanji made me understand and experience.

Now I understand surrender as leading my life according to His Will; accepting everything as it comes, as His prasad (devotional offering) and not using my mind to judge whether it is good or bad. But I am still to surrender completely. I am just going through various stages of surrender.

Mohanji always tries to teach me lessons required to lead a happy life every moment of every day. It will still take time to keep my mind and ego at bay and listen to Him fully. I hope and wish that by His Grace, I will learn the remaining lessons soon, which I know are plenty in number.

Jai Mohanji!

At Your lotus feet always!

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 6 – “He who knows His children’s needs”

Mohanji Bracelet

In our series of Mohanji Satcharita Chapter 6, we bring to you another beautiful experience of divine protection, shared by Sonia Mayur from Muscat. When we surrender to a Master, He keeps us safe under His protective umbrella! We need to be aware of this every moment and understand that no event occurs by chance, but it is all His leela, through which He delivers what is in our best interest! This experience by Sonia Mayur shared below, highlights this beautiful protection woven around us!

(Please feel free to read the earlier story of MS – chapter 6, here.)

He who knows His children’s needs

By Sonia Mayur – Muscat, Oman

When He says, “I am there! Main hoon naa”…. Undoubtedly, He is with us.  In such a situation; time, place and His physical state becomes insignificant.

Recently, Mohanji added me to the “Mohanji Global Family” group on WhatsApp. I felt truly blessed and overwhelmed to be a part of His global family.  It is such a blissful state to see how He is touching so many lives around the world.

I am soon to become a mom, so like other moms, I always wondered what would be a perfect gift for my baby, when she opens her eyes in this beautiful world. It was also to show my gratitude to her for choosing me to be her mother, a gift that is beyond value and words.  It was August 18th 2018 when I received an answer with His grace, on Mohanji Global Family group.  There was a message from Manu who is part of the USA team, Divine M Heritage, which introduces Mohanji Protection Bracelet, Mohanji Protection Pendant and Mohanji Vibhuti box to all.

And here you go!! I had my question replied to in the subtlest manner by Mohanji …. without wasting even a minute. I emailed Manu that I would like to order all three products. The email bounced back and I immediately messaged Manu on the group giving him the correct information. He contacted me separately to further assist with the shipping details.

My parents were in USA at that time, so I preferred all the products to be shipped directly to them. My mom planned on joining me in November for my delivery, so this way I would have the products well in time before my little angel arrived.

My parents received the products on time, and they flew back to India in late September.  The protection from the products was with them all through their journey and it was made possible with the blessings of Mohanji and sincere efforts from Manu.

On October 8th, just few weeks after my parents arrived back home, I received a message from my mom, “Teerath got arrested for false signature.” Just to give a background to this statement, my parents were fighting a court case against both our tenants (who rent 1st and 2nd floors) to vacate the house. They not only weren’t vacating but were harassing my parents all these years. The court case has been going on for almost 10 years now. Teerath who lives with his family on our 1st floor, produced some forged signature stating that he had purchased it from my dad a few years back. Since then my dad has been battling in court to prove his innocence and has been trying to get the property out of these people’s hands.

Within 2 weeks of their return to India, their tenant had been found guilty and is now behind bars for forged signatures.  Also, all his efforts are failing to get a bail and his family has tried all sorts of things, including threatening people who stood by us, but nothing is working.

After some time, I kept thinking how come it took the law 10 years to figure this out, and how things just fell into place.  Then suddenly, I wondered if someone waved a magic wand here.

One day while driving back from work, I was like, wait a minute, it is Mohanji who worked all this out. It was His leela that made me think of ordering the protection products for me, but the intention was to help my dad who needed His blessings more than anyone else.   He silently worked all this out magically without even asking.  I immediately messaged Mohanji to tell Him about this and wrote all in the message. As an answer, I received one message back that said it all, “Blessings Blessings.”

There was nothing else required….. all questions were replied, and such is a Guru’s blessings for His kids.

the bracelet of protection

Now the bracelet that I ordered for my angel is being worn by my dad.  Mohanji knows very well, when, where and what is needed …. we are too small in front of His work to even understand how He makes all this happen for all of us.

No words are enough to express my love & gratitude to Mohanji. All I can say is that my loved ones and I are truly blessed to have a Guru in our lives.

Jai Mohanji

Pranaam at your lotus feet

With Love & Gratitude

Mohanji
