Skanda Vale and London – Part 3

June 2022

On Friday, I got a ride from Selma to the BE YOU event in St Albans, near London. Nico and Sita rode along with two Swamis from Skanda Vale. Again we felt carried and pampered by Mohanji during every part of the trip. The hotel was surrounded by greenery, and I was grateful that it was outside the city.

We had a lovely get-together with Parvati on the terrace in front of the hotel. Sita told us that she had read that morning in Guru Subramaniam’s autobiography that he was an incarnation of Swami Brahmananda from the Ramakrishna order. She was incredibly surprised. In all the years she had known Guru Subramaniam, she had never heard anything about this. Swami Gopal had confirmed and is regarded as the incarnation of Sarada Devi, the wife of Ramakrishna. Therefore, a trip to the Ramakrishna ashram in Bangalore was usually a regular part of our annual trip to Swami.

Sita and I shared our enthusiasm about yet another synchronicity. It felt like it had come full circle. I had still not fully understood my connection with and attraction to Skanda Vale and thought about it from time to time. Even when I said goodbye inwardly to Guru Subramaniam before leaving that same morning, I still didn’t understand how I had ended up in front of his picture in his ashram.

The next day in St Albans, I stood at the book table and picked up the book The Silence of Shiva. I asked Mohanji inwardly if he had a message for me and randomly flipped open the book. To my utter amazement, the first three lines I read told me that Guru Subramanian of Skanda Vale was the incarnation of Swami Brahmananda of the Ramakrishna order. This was too coincidental for words. Mohanji is not beside us. He is within us and all around us. He guides us in the smallest details of our lives. The incident made me feel even more embraced and supported by The Tradition.

During the weekend, I would sometimes sit and watch Mohanji give Shaktipat or sign books and bless items for people. He did everything with such intense attention that I loved to watch from a distance. To see him standing there so quietly and serenely, all in white, like a true Jesus with both hands raised to give the blessings, was a sight to behold.

When he was signing books, I saw a woman with a big pile coming. “In Silence with Mohanji”, the little booklet that I had written, was one of them. It wasn’t hard to see because it was the thinnest of all. Would Mohanji really sign it for her? I thought. What a blessing it would be to see him sign my booklet as if I still needed that confirmation as the crowning glory of my work. Something in me genuinely doubted that Mohanji was going to sign the booklet.

When he finally did it, it relaxed me and made me happy. The woman later told me, ‘When I gave the book to him, Mohanji said, “The woman who wrote it is also here. She is sitting over there,” and he pointed to you.’ That made me so happy. A little Satwic ego can do no harm, isn’t it? Mohanji knows what we need. Due to many extreme circumstances over the past six years, I had developed insecure feelings, and Mohanji leaves no stone unturned to re-empower me.

After the Consciousness Dancing session, we had a meditation, Blossoms of Love. During the meditation, all participants received Mohanji Energy Transfer (MET). I had not experienced this before. In my life, I had had many experiences with different kinds of healing power, but I was not prepared for the special effect of the MET. It was as if a small hole was drilled in my crown through which a tangible beam of light came in, into my head and torso. How does one feel light? I don’t know either, but that’s how it felt. And after the brief touch, the sensation lingered for a deliciously long time. An opening had definitely been created or accentuated. Thank you, Mohanji.

As I walked toward the event hall at one point, the thought came to me that every moment is meaningful and that we can make use of each moment to make a difference to someone. We had the possibility to not only receive Mohanji’s energy but also to give energy and attention. I did not know why this thought came to me. Surely we were in the middle of a program where everything was already organized?

When I walked into the room, a woman was sitting alone on a chair. I sat down next to her for a moment as she had my booklet on her lap. She told me she was going to have it signed. I asked her how she experienced the event because I didn’t know her, and maybe she was new. She told me that she had been informed by a friend and since her beloved dog had died only two weeks ago, she felt she had to come. I empathized with her. I know how it feels. And maybe someone else experiences it even more intensely.

Two tears rolled down her cheeks, and I literally felt her dog’s presence. He tried to give me a message by touching my left leg. I got an image of her dog licking her tears. My dogs have never done that, so it was not a familiar image to me. I asked, ‘What would your dog have done if he saw you in tears?’ Without hesitation, she said, ‘He would lick my tears.’ I said, ‘That’s exactly what he came here to do. I see it. And I feel that he is here.’ My hair stood on end, and I now understood why I had just thought of being open to offer help at any unexpected moment. Thank you, Mohanji!

A second chance to touch someone’s heart came when, after the event, I offered to distribute the leftover flowers to the attendees. Standing behind the book table was a kind lady. I asked her which flower she would like. I got to choose, she said. I tuned into her for a moment and chose the sunflower from the bouquet. She was moved because that had been her favourite flower since childhood and had a special meaning for her, another special moment that we both won’t forget easily.

At the airport, a friendly airport assistant guided us past all the long lines of people waiting. We had to wait near the gate, and a little later, Dirk van de Wijngaard, his wife Mina and Parvati arrived, also accompanied by an assistant. It turned out that they had booked the same plane. Our minds and hearts were already filled to the brim, but there was still room for more satsang, airport satsang.

Dirk was, as usual, full of stories which he shared in everlasting ecstasy and enthusiasm, and we were an eager audience. I especially loved the story about the angel-like picture of Mohanji, Dirk (on his knees) and Subhasree in Mohanji’s arms. A few rays of light touched the hearts of both Dirk and Subhasree and were living proof of their pure and unmatched devotion. I had been there when the picture was taken and felt the vibration of their love there and then.

Dirk confirmed that it was he who had given the ring to Mohanji as per the instruction of Sathya Sai and Shirdi Sai Baba, telling him in a dream: “Hey boy, get up and bring the protection ring to our son.” I had had an immediate strong notion at the restaurant that it must have been Dirk who was the giver of the ring when I heard Mohanji talking about it to Vijay, who sat opposite him at the table. At that time, it was not yet clear who exactly had been the giver. From where I sat, I heard only bits and pieces of the story. When Dirk confirmed my feeling and explained how the stones were connected with the planets, the sun and the moon and that the ring was actually meant for protection, I sighed with relief and felt that this was the answer to my prayer for protection for Mohanji!

Dirk and I have known each other for more than thirty years, and it was through his inspiration that I set up People’s Trust Zijdeverwerking. A foundation to support a Vocational Training Centre in the People’s Trust project for the poorest of the poor in Srimanahalli near Bangalore. Dirk always keeps popping up in our lives and is a blessed example of absolute, pure faith and devotion. Was it a coincidence that I was sitting right next to his daughter Parvati on the plane and that Dirk and Mina were sitting with Nico and Sita of all places?

The security officer at the airport wouldn’t let me proceed since she thought that some strange glow was seen on the scan at the heart level. I think I know what that glow was. The official asked me to remove my rudraksha mala. She thought that maybe the mala was causing the disturbance. But it wasn’t. Even without the mala, I was a suspect. Probably a Divine Thief lives in our hearts. Parvati had the same experience! She was even shown her scan by the official. And something strange and inexplicable was really clearly visible as a yellow-golden glow in her torso.

For me, it was, without doubt, the golden energy of Mohanji’s divine love that rendered our heart chakra charged with literally visible energy, that we carried home to deepen the integration of his love and served as a strong and steady base for ‘survival’ during the cleansing period that started right after we arrived home. But that is material for my next testimonial.

A warm heart full of gratitude for Mohanji and the lovely UK team, our new family. We felt carried by the warm welcome all the way from home and back. Flying to Manchester in the same plane with Mohanji and flying back with Dirk, Mina, Parvathi, Sita and Nico and feeling carried on the wings of love all the way. Thank you, Mohanji. Thank you, team UK! With all our love!

My surrendered destiny

By Dr Harpreet Wasir, India

6th April 2014, 9.05 pm, New Delhi, India 

This time and day changed everything. Mohanji came to me as my time had come. What was conceived with just a look and the Shaktipat matured into faith and surrender with complete conviction and consistency!

From then on, nothing mattered in my life as the plugging was done from my side. He had taken over my steering wheel. All I had to do was complete my karma as a doctor and my dharma as a family and social individual with complete focus on only one thing – Mohanji! He knows the best for me. I leave the rest to his will with complete ACCEPTANCE of all results and outcomes. 

The path was never a smooth one. I still go through the most challenging situations in my life, which often not only test but also get me on my knees. However, it gives me the divine strength and direction in thoughts and actions to deal with them.

What changed then?

It was the mere presence of my Guru, guide, teacher, and companion who had taken the responsibility to mould me with my complete acceptance by surrendering to him as my Master.

Days, months and years passed by. The past taught me to deal with the present and to walk into the future with complete faith. I was never alone ever. The external seemed to diminish with a new internal birth – deep within. External sounds though heard loud and clear, started getting me more into inner silence.

The situations around started changing into stillness; the birth of a state of silence, thoughtlessness and cessation of breath seemed possible. The depth of connection between the giver and the receiver was maturing as more complex situations, often multiple at one go gave pain but never any suffering as if he had covered this body and soul of mine with this impenetrable armour, his SHIVAKAVACHAM.

With this, he started teaching me the process of awareness by first making me slowly understand his actions and later accept all events and eventualities without taking responsibility for anything. Life seemed manageable to live with peace and love.

Expectations started to bury themselves over time, and freedom began to grow as another shoot from this tree called LIFE.

Nothing outside ever changed, nor will change. The change was happening inside. The inner genetics was changing to craft a carrier for his Master. 

The difference was that now my work was least about myself, but for all those patients he got me to and those he sent me to. People, not only as patients but from all walks of life, took so much of the MASTER who dwelt in me as he stationed himself in me, driving me to one and all who needed care with love – only with my Guru’s grace.

I submitted my driving handle of whatever life was destined for me in his hands with total faith and surrender, with all my patients, as my Guru knows what’s best and when it’s the best.

Between the two extreme ends of birth and death, I was totally bound by experiences to understand with the full awareness that this is my human birth to unload as much as possible with his grace which was now a real possibility. His seeds of EMPOWERMENT started maturing to understand the insignificance of position, possessions and relationships.

A new life of giving, serving and loving blossomed into a tree. Many began perching on it to receive what my Guru gave to all who came to him, using me as his instrument. The tree’s root was my availability for my Guru to work on me at all times with complete surrender.

He always managed the show, but he taught me the awareness of witnessing the show sometimes as an actor myself and many times as a spectator. I cease to exist. What exists is only him. In return, he teaches total freedom, unbound by anything. I understand it as the final breath to complete an already lived/ liberated living.

My liberation began the day my Guru accepted me and my emptiness to stand in front of him and hear him say within my soul, “I’m ready, are you ready?” That one glance told me I was home with my Father and one with him.

The learning and the journey continue, but now there are two people walking with one set of impressions of footprints on the ground as he is carrying me along always.

My profession as a heart surgeon changed its meaning totally ever since the journey started. From mine to his, results to acceptance – it gave a new dimension as a doctor in a bigger and different way. It was now his healing, his hands, his directions and his results. My belief became much stronger; all he sends to me are meant for me, and he is the doer.

Thus with this awareness, the concept of hours or days, morning or night, food or no food, events, functions, and holidays disappeared. What was left was total acceptance of everything that came to me at all times.

My Guru stands by me, holding my thoughts and actions through my mind and hands, and does it all for everyone he sends to me. Each patient and every individual gets my Guru in every possible way, through his will.

Birds, animals and all living beings also get as much. Even non-living objects which have taken any instrumental form receive the grace of my Guru as I see and feel the live atoms they are composed of. What a life of oneness with my Guru! I feel this when I sit in some corner with silence being my only partner in the quietness amidst this life full of noises and chaos.

I know well that the next moment I have to drive into the same madness of life, and it’s totally different now. The inner silence and fullness of no demands nor expectations and only giving much more each time prevails over all physical imbalances of life. The state of looking at how, where, and whom to give myself through my Guru’s guidance is all I live by in this existence.

This ongoing journey continues to be a physical and mental guide towards completion, the final destination known only to him. Life is now a process of unburdening, unloading and unfolding, thus living the purest form of love and happiness, which comes through only by giving back everything possible to all those seeking.

The driver will always be the Guru as he is our unquestionable GPS system. All that is required is to hand over the steering wheel of our lives into his hands and keep doing our dharma and complete karma to the fullest.

In the end, it will never be about them and me. It was and is only about him and me. I bow down to MOHANJI, the FORMLESS and UNCONDITIONAL energy which has come into my life as my GURU AND GUIDE to serve with the motto of patients first, rest all second.

May I live my Guru’s teachings always!

A safari of lifetimes with Mohanji – 2022

By Sandra Shankar, South Africa

The rush of pure adrenalin became a powerful magnetised trigger to prepare for the coming of an epic sunrise in Africa. The manifestation of a glorious ‘physical’ consciousness connection with his grace. Caldwell Hall Reimagined Rewired 2022 retreat in the Midlands with beloved Parabrahma Swaroopa Mohanji was finally happening. 

I was breathless with excitement at the prospect of meeting his wonderous hallowed physical form and bathing in his golden auric field. What I do experience INSIDE with Mohanji is a luminescent inky blue energy signature. Like the colour caught by the camera outside the windows in this picture taken during the retreat.

Evening satsang at the South African Caldwell Hall Retreat: Reimagine Rewired 2022 in the Midlands of KwaZulu Natal

On the OUTSIDE, we experience the golden hues resplendent in the next photograph. Mohanji was on safari at the time. Again, the camera catches the intensity of the colour spectrum we can see with our naked eyes. 

Can you imagine how much we miss since we cannot see the full-colour spectrum? So, belief in complete faith and absolute surrender is a must.

It did seem like the Continent of Africa had been dark for too long. Yet, in hindsight, there was detached awareness intermingled with the tantalising ambrosia of inexplicable joy too. Can one help but FEEL that indescribable shiver of excitement at the thought that our beloved Para Brahma was coming? My eyes close in wonderment. Here. Finally. Here.

Live the moment. Savour the moment. Enjoy the nectar of these moments fully. Don’t hold back, says our beloved Parabrahma ever so lovingly. Not missing a beat, I deep dive into his expanded universal presence without hesitation. Spontaneous, unbound and free. It feels like I just won VIP tickets to my favourite concert. Woohoo!

INSIDE. There was a lot happening. As most of us seasoned bhaktas already know, the churning starts long before we make it to the showgrounds. The ‘quickening’ results in inexplicable dreams, feelings, body aches and pains, thoughts and, at times, perplexing images from lifetimes past. For sure, Mohanji starts working on us long before we get in close proximity.

South Africa had one of the most damaging storms in years, and many lives were lost in the flooding, collapsed roads and deadly mudslides. Other utilities like water and lights were disrupted for the longest time. Yet that did not deter me from packing my bags and making the trip to meet my beloved Parabrahma, at Calderwood Hall, in the picturesque Midlands of KwaZulu Natal.

On the evening before leaving, I stood on my balcony, savouring the beautiful hues and textures of the beautiful evening. Staying so far away from the beloved Mohanji family gives one time to pause and reflect on the significance of Mohanji’s physical presence and value his PRESENCE without presence.  

My heartbeats quickened as I stood on the balcony gazing out at the richness of orange, gold and black hues in the steadily darkening skies. Then I admonished myself for acting like I was meeting my beloved Parabrahma for the first time. In fact, I always think he is here and everywhere at the same time. Isn’t he in the soft and gentle breeze? In the dancing rustling leaves? In the magnificent and mighty tree in front of me? The night sky dazzled with a splurge of diamonds that winked and waved mesmerisingly at me. They were alive.

I was completely enraptured by the splendour of nature around me. Then as my awareness kept expanding, I started to FEEL Mohanji in the softness of the wind moving through my hair, in the leaves, the inky blackness of the evening and the stars in the heavens. Here and everywhere at the same time. Thus, blissfully expanded, I lost track of time.

Undoubtedly, I experienced the power of Mohanji’s PRESENCE without a PRESENCE! Alive in every atom. I am still ‘mind boggled’ thinking this feels like being synched with the universal hum or ONENESS of creation. Did I need to stop and think about connecting with Mohanji in his expanded form? No. I needed to FEEL it FULLY. That’s what happened.

In fact, one of the few words I exchanged with Mohanji at the retreat was, “I FEEL you everywhere.” He replied, “I know.” I said, “I know you know.” To think so much was said in such a few sentences! As I write these words, I am still bedazzled by his unconditional loving grace, which allows me to glimpse his expanded state of consciousness. Then I think, I am that too! We all are that.

You can be reassured that our beloved Raja Yogi Mohanji is not just a physical being. He is effectively the OCEAN IN A DROP. It is humbling to have his divine grace protect and guide us on this epic journey to self-discovery. Truly, I am the dust beneath his lotus feet.

Mohanji says, “Those who have ‘eyes’ will see.” I think to myself. I see and feel. How blessed am I to be born here and now? When I think I cannot love Mohanji more than I already do, he takes us to even deeper depths of bliss state! Only possible with Mohanji. One knows to expect nothing because we are on the most thrilling rollercoaster ride of our lives, experiencing entire lifetimes in varying phases of karmic completion. 

All we have to do is let go of limiting concepts and acknowledge the karmic cyclic patterns that trap us in a web of deceit. To me, that means having the courage to surrender everything at his lotus feet and walk away, not looking back. It takes sheer guts and the heart of a lioness to do that. SURRENDER. No sweat, I do that spontaneously with Mohanji.

At the retreat, there were a string of supercharged experiences which I will expand upon in point form as follows:

Conscious Infinity Walk

As we walked in a single file chanting the Mohanji Gayatri mantra, the energy accelerated, and I felt like I was pulling two heavy ropes. I had to heave and tug, and suddenly it felt weightless. It was as if Mohanji was synchronising everyone’s energy. We were all encapsulated in a supercharged energetic flow. It was invigorating. Transcendental. Fierce.

Conscious Dancing

Milica was amazing as she led us through the prep and explained how to flow in dance through the songs. The combination of song and dance was intoxicating. I was lost from the get-go. My body took on mudra postures, and new dance moves faster than I ever thought was possible. Hahaha. When the Shakti song came up, my body bent into a blissed-out ‘C’ shape …backwards! Mohanji’s energy came in waves and degrees of intensity. 

Sometimes it was so intense I felt bound in a place, unable to move. I can’t remember much as I was lost in the rapture during the various melodies. Music is a brilliant conduit for higher frequencies and takes us quickly into altered states of consciousness. It was surely a state of transcendental bliss – A true rasa leela. 


All I remember was that as Mohanji gave shaktipat, my body was encapsulated in energy. It felt as if Shiva and Shakti were being balanced. My body reverberated with the flow of energy that his grace delivered as much as I could receive. The ‘feminine divine’ flowed majestically. Our beloved Parabrahma gives us as much as we can handle. I was told my shaktipat took an unusually long time. Humbled and ever grateful knowing how great a blessing it is to be blessed by his grace. So caught up in my own world, I did not pay much attention to those who reacted as entities left them or were caught up in the rapture like myself.

Book Signing and Blessing of Somarka Coherent Water Tubes (aka Analemma Water Stick in Europe) & Beads

As Mohanji energised the water tubes, continued to sign my books, and energised the beads, I found my hands raising my Somarka living water tubes (Analemma water Stick) slowly in an altered state above Mohanji’s head. ‘Living water’ on its own boosts our operating frequency by 300%. 

Can you imagine the consequences of Mohanji further energising already supercharged water in its original state? Mind-blowing right? Whenever I energise my water with my Somarka water tube (Analemma Water Stick), my hand reverberates with energy. When I drink it, my body hums even louder.

Water is a pure medium that carries the highest frequencies in nature, thereby allowing Mohanji to work more expediently across all our energy sheaths. Now can you imagine its effect on a human body which is 98% water-based? Just mind-boggling.

I am raising my Somarka Coherent Water Tubes (Analemma Water Stick) in an expanded state after Mohanji energised them

These are purely superfluous movements in reaction to being so close to Mohanji.

Miraculous Aid & Recovery after Puncture

This is the story about how our beloved Mohanji’s divine leela played out. Before leaving home, I had put Bhagavan Satya Sai’s ashes on four of my tyres to ensure all was well regardless of what could happen on the long journey to the retreat. The roads were really bad after severe storms lashed the country that week. It was the fourth day. It was the end of the 2022 Caldwell Hall Retreat in the Midlands, and everyone started leaving. 

Revona had spotted that one of my car’s tyres was flat earlier and asked Yash to tell me. Shocked at our predicament, I wondered briefly how to handle the situation. As I looked up, Mohanji was also getting ready to leave the resort. There was no fear, just logical reasoning in my head about how to handle it expediently. 

Suria and Lenny are new Mohanji family members from the north coast of KwaZulu Natal. Lenny had written a beautiful English song dedicated to Mohanji. He played his guitar and helped us practice. By the time Mohanji walked in, everyone was in full flow. Baba loved it and said it must be recorded and sung all over the world. Just wait till you all hear it!

Click on this link to view the video taken by Tea at the retreat

Returning to my predicament, Suria came to me and said not to worry; her husband Lenny has an electric air pressure tyre pump which would get the tyre back to normal and allow me time to get to a garage to fix it. Yash gallantly remained with us to ensure we were ok and left late too. Mohanji ensured we were loved and cared for during this predicament as he does throughout our innumerable lifetimes with him. How perfectly exquisite is that?

The tyre pressure remained constant during the three-hour ride home with my fun, divinely gifted, gorgeous cousin Nirvana Singh. It was still fine the next day when we went to get the tyre fixed. They found a big metal nail in it. 

Thinking back, our beloved Suria and I connected instantly during the retreat. I could clearly see the hand of grace making all these vital connections with loving family members integral to the speedy resolution of the problem. They were unknowingly complicit in the creation of a miraculous leela that saved the day. Nirvana and I drove home incident-free. Just WOW! 

Mohanji does not have to be present in his physical body to create miracles. The retreat was over, but Mohanji’s grace wrapped us in an invincible shield 24/7. It is easy to be fearless and flow with spontaneity knowing my beloved Para Brahma’s got my back.

One thing I know for sure is that we are all connected through lifetimes through his grace. Regardless of where we live, we are all complicit in Mohanji’s grand play on a global scale. 

His grace is the unconditionally loving hand that deals out the cards. Our simple, unassuming master and friend of the Universe is the greatest living miracle the rest of the world has yet to see. 

Those who feel him know enough to be IRRESOLUTE, FEARLESS and FREE. We will never let him go knowing that Mohanji, in turn, never leaves us. Those who do, leave without understanding the 360-degree cosmic consciousness at play. 

Knowing is understanding!

We are aware. We are SELF-aware. We are ONE.

I am MOHANJI. MOHANJI is me. There is no separation.

I am unshakable.

Gratefully yours

By Maja O, Ecuador

Dear Ones, this is a humble attempt to recollect some moments on my journey with Mohanji as an expression of gratitude for all that I have been blessed with. As I am reluctant to write, I dare do so only because I was propelled to do it during my meditation. I surrender it fully to my Gurudeva Mohanji’s lotus feet.

I met Mohanji in 2010, on his first visit to Belgrade. I was invited to meet him by a dear cousin of mine whom I respected deeply. The reunion was held at Toma’s place, and a small group of people gathered and listened to the satsang. During the discourse, my ego kept judging Mohanji’s words as if testing him based on my previous spiritual experiences that I considered significant. My final verdict was that this man speaks the truth and has experienced it. But it was only from the mind/intellect level that I approached Mohanji, as the ego did not allow a deeper connection.

A couple of days later, we had a big satsang with Mohanji, to which he came directly from his wedding in a different city in Serbia. (To be honest, I don’t quite remember clearly whether this particular experience happened in this event, but it did happen, and I relate it to this occasion, though in full honesty, my memory is not clear, and it might have happened later on.)

In any case, even before knowing that Mohanji had arrived at the venue, in my heart, I felt bright light emanating in joy upon feeling Mohanji’s presence. It was screaming with overwhelming happiness: “Finally!” I was taken by surprise when I looked at my chest and asked: “Ok, I seem to be very happy to meet him. But who are you, and where have you been hiding so far?” My soul was silent. It cared not for my mind’s chattering.

Before Mohanji left Serbia on his first visit, I made a mental request to him. We were lined up to receive Shaktipat, and when it was my turn, I looked at him and asked him in my mind to resolve my current situation. Back then, I was struggling a lot to get a job, and I had a lot of family and health issues. For years I was trying to find any job abroad, that I thought would be the solution, and even though I kept knocking on many doors, they remained closed.

Needless to say, he delivered even more than what I had asked for. Some four months later, I was in Mexico, on the Caribbean, selling diamonds. I did not have to chase this opportunity; it landed effortlessly in my lap. This experience not only helped me regain my strength and confidence, but it was also the beginning of my living abroad.

Living abroad also meant not being able to see Mohanji often. However, whether I was aware of it or not, he has always been with me. Our connection is also reflected in the lives of my family members, and I will briefly relate the two most important events. When my mother was about to pass away, Swamiji Bhaktananda kindly accepted to do a Mai-Tri for her.

Through him, I found out that Mohanji was with my mom at the moment of transiting. With his grace and her good deeds, she was able to attain liberation from the birth-death cycle, that she would no longer be reincarnated on Earth. Her soul had moved to higher realms as she continued her journey to complete dissolution. I had a close relationship with my mother, and after hearing Swamiji’s words, I could not hold back the tears of deepest gratitude overflowing from me.

Every time I think of it, I have tears of joy. It was as if Mohanji fulfilled one of my biggest wishes, and whenever he reminds us to think of what we should be grateful for in our lives – I think of this. Even as I write this now, my heart wants to explode as tears roll down in gratitude and joy.

Another event is related to my father’s car accident. He was in his 70s and was driving really slowly on a very fast inter-city road. Another car at full speed hit him from behind, and as he flew up in the air, the car turned and landed on the ground upside down. The old, small Peugeot was completely demolished. My dad had just a small scratch on his leg. He was completely fine, other than being in shock. He was fully aware that it was divine grace that had saved him, as it is a complete miracle to walk out unhurt from such an accident.

It was clear to me that it was Mohanji’s divine hand that was holding my father as he was flying in the air. I also knew that it would be hard for my family to accept and believe in it. This reminds me of how little I personally am aware of the things Mohanji does for me every day, even beyond this time and space. 

I’d also like to write about a challenging period when I was about to see Mohanji and attend his programs after five years of not being in his physical presence. The first hit ended up at a very low frequency where my body was in pain, my ego was hurt, and my mind was blaming Mohanji for it. I was even considering cancelling my participation. But luckily, as soon as my mind and ego rebelled, I asked myself how do I really feel about it. My soul saved me by giving me a message that I would regret it for the rest of my life if I didn’t go. It was the only answer that mattered, and I proceeded with my plans ignoring all the nagging of my mind in the background.

Once in Serbia, I was unpleasantly surprised. Certain friends of mine who used to be deeply connected with Mohanji since day one were no longer with him and were telling me untrue stories about him. I was not expecting this. Their words confused me, as I could clearly see that they believed in their own stories, and yet I was unable to come to terms with their words and who Mohanji really was through my interaction with him.

I feel gratitude for the blessing that came through a new friend whose one simple sentence cleared the sky and made room for me to breathe the fresh air of truth again. Upon asking Mohanji about it, mainly about how could it be that these people truly believed the negative things they were saying, which was untrue, he simply said that we all have our weaknesses and should be alert and aware.

I feel love for these people, and I did not feel anything negative towards them. I just see them confused and am praying they will be blessed with more clarity and that they will come out of it with the least possible karma for them. And in this context, it is useful to remember how Mohanji always reminds us to trust our own experiences and not the opinions of others.

So finally, I was able to reach the retreats and face Mohanji’s constant poking. I was not the least upset because of it, as I was aware that Mohanji is pure love, but the truth was that I had come with some resistance. By the end of the retreats, he cleared this completely and placed deep devotion in my heart. What surprised me about the programs was how different they were from past ones. Before, he used to be physically present with us almost all the time, and we would go through constant experience sharing together.

Nowadays, he makes us connect more to his consciousness so that we are not attached to his physical body. Another difference I noticed was the clear increase of power that was emanating from him. My impression was that it had to do with the ceremony of bestowing the Brahmarishi title to Mohanji when Avadhoota Nadananda transferred his spiritual powers onto Mohanji. The great Masters were showering him with blessings even without him asking for it.

Before, we received Shaktipat every so often at the programs (or at least that was my impression). But this time, we had to wait till the end of the retreat. I remember the guy on the bus sitting next to me, enthusiastic about it as we reached the tunnels Ravne in Bosnian Pyramids: “Wow, it’s coming! We gonna receive it! Finally! Shaktipat!” I have to admit I couldn’t help thinking: “Why is he getting so excited about it; what’s the big deal?” But I did not say anything to my fellow friend.

However, once the Shaktipat commenced, literally a volcano started erupting from within me, and it wouldn’t stop. Only Mohanji knows what got burned in that sacred fire of Shaktipat. And it was yet another reminder for me to not be so easily judgmental and to respect deeply every aspect of the Tradition as my understanding of it is so small and limited. 

One of the deepest transformative experiences I went through, thanks to Mohanji, was the Mai-Tri process and the Empowered program. It was through the Empowered program that Mohanji gave me stability, as well as the awareness through which states of fearlessness, silence and stillness, and thoughtlessness were made possible. It was as if he poured on us the blessings and grace needed for reaching our true selves, and all we had to do was follow his guidelines with dedication and merge into the consciousness so readily waiting for us.

Experiences of these states were important for me when working with Mai-Tri practitioners, as they assured deeper connection and surrender. I have gained much clarity, and so much of karma has been cleansed through the amazing practice of Mai-Tri given to us by Mohanji. I’d like to thank all of the practitioners who have worked with me. I am especially greatly thankful to the Mai-Tri practitioner from the USA, whose faith and full surrender to Mohanji have made this practice a completely transformative experience. Thanks to her, I have been given clarity on how much I have taken things for granted in my life and how high my expectations were instead of focusing on the blessings present here and now.

It is thanks to Mohanji that I can eat the most delicious food of grand variety, live in a house made of natural materials in the nature that I wished for, and have the opportunity to serve, which brings joy and meaning to my life, as it also cleanses my karma, have friends who are my true soulmates, and learn daily from the people and situations in my life.

I used to think that I was not receiving enough because I could not afford to go to the retreats and pilgrimages. I was shown that I have exactly what I need for my spiritual growth here and now. I’ll give just one simple example. The Mai-Tri practitioner explained to me the attitude that I lack and need to develop in this lifetime, which would bring an important transformation in me. The very next day, I received a voice message from one of my best friends, who is the epitome of these qualities. She wholeheartedly expressed all those previously mentioned by the practitioner.

My Guru was right there in front of me, and it was not by mere chance that we call each other soul-sisters and that we regularly thank each other for all the valuable lessons. And all the people of the place where I live have also taught me and have changed me, of which I now have more understanding and appreciation. In short, Mohanji has provided the perfect conditions that were needed for my particular spiritual growth. Gratitude opens us up for receiving the grace which is definitely flowing to us in abundance. We just need to put the right glasses on (or remove the glasses of the mind) to see things properly.

This was just one aspect of what the connection with Mohanji can bring. A deeper one is found through silence. There’s much more, and this text does not do justice to all that I have received from Mohanji and the Tradition, but I wrote only about what came to me now. Mohanji urges us to share experiences for our own sake and for the possibility of inspiring others. So I thank you all who have read this, and I surrender it fully to my dearest Mohanji’s feet, to whom I owe everything. Eternally grateful for all the love and light you have blessed me with, Mohanji.
