ACT 4 UKRAINE

Shyama Jeyaseelan, UK

Through the ACT platform, we have a great opportunity to serve our brothers and sisters in Ukraine at this time of need. With more guidance and inspiration from Mohanji during his recent visit to the UK, Mohanji ACT Foundation President Jay and Mohanji Foundation, UK President Vijay are leaving on a journey to the borders of Moldova, carrying food, clothes and medical items. Driving in the ACT/MF van (and supported by TEECH, a UK based charity that supports us in various ways), they will be taking the ferry to the Netherlands and driving through Germany, Hungary, Austria, and Romania to reach the northern borders of Moldova to help those displaced from Ukraine.

The Balkans ACT team and other volunteers from the UK will join Jay and Vijay in Romania a few days later. A lot of planning and preparation is taking place, and it is wonderful to see how grace works in facilitating activities for smooth travel, and I share some incidents below.

Yesterday, Jay and I took the van to Skanda Vale to collect food hampers for school children. During the previous two trips, we had collected 2 tonnes of food from Skanda Vale for those displaced from Ukraine. Their kind and generous support have enabled Mohanji ACT Foundation to feed thousands of people over the last decade, and we are so grateful for their loving support.

As we got in the van early in the morning, my eyes fell on the cards Mohanji had placed in the van a few days ago. The most beautiful light emanated from his hand on one of the cards, giving us tangible evidence of his presence, protection, and blessings for all activities we carry out using Mohanji’s platforms. I was reminded of what he had told us one morning, “When we serve using Mohanji platforms, which are based on purity, the merits that we and our lineage receive is manifold.” It was also a wonderful reassurance that his energy and protection are with the van and the drivers as they serve the world, whether it is a short drive down the road or a long trip across many countries.

While I was driving, Jay spoke with Priti to organise the ACT4UKRAINE sweatshirts to be printed. Since we only had two working days to get them done, the printing company we recently used quoted us a very high price. Our hearts sank at the cost involved, and we decided to try another place outside of London. This lady not only agreed to do the sweatshirts for half the price, she actually came home the following day to show us samples of her work and also offered some free t-shirts printed with the same design! How amazing! Mohanji brought the right person to us at the right time, someone with the same mindset of helping others, with whom we will work together for our future printing needs.

Hanumatananda was doing the ACT4UKRAINE design, and he had sent the initial design to Jay. When shared with Mohanji, he asked for the silhouette to be added. While driving in the van, Jay was messaging Hanumatananda to request if it was possible to make the necessary changes, hoping he would see the message before reaching Skanda Vale, where wifi is not always available. As always, it was a rapid response and the design options were sent within the hour, shared with Mohanji and the correct one sent to the printer despite all of us communicating from such different time zones!

After spending some blessed time with the Skanda Vale community (with blue skies and sunshine, nature and animals) and collecting the food hampers, we returned the same day, reaching home at nearly 1 am. Before going to bed, I went into the prayer room to say goodnight and offer my gratitude to Mohanji for the beautiful day. I was very tired and wasn’t really paying much attention to the other pictures or figures at the altar, but somehow my eyes fell on a small picture of Baba encased in glass.

I noticed a beautiful light in the area of his heart, a pink heart in front of the glass and small golden wings near the heart. It was so very beautiful and unmistakable even to my eyes which don’t normally ‘see’ subtle things even after a circle is drawn and an arrow points to it. I remembered reading some time ago that Baba’s aura is huge and a beautiful pink colour, which was shown to me in the pink heart.

Both these tangible experiences on this wonderful day were really magical. The day started, continued and culminated with love and light. Immense gratitude to Mohanji and Guru Mandala (Guru Subramanium, Sathya Sai Baba and all the Masters); they bless us to add value to the world through their teachings, example, inspiration, guidance, energy and protection.

And our heartfelt love and gratitude to all who have supported the ACT4UKRAINE initiative.

Just keep moving

just keep moving

Anonymous Testimonial. Translated by: Maja Otovic 

How I rose above the suicidal thoughts with Mohanji’s help…

Since 2015, I have been feeling tired of this life. I was only 23 years old. University, family, and private life all seemed all right, but nothing was ok upon a deeper look. All of these aspects of my life were filled with hardships, struggles, problems and existential uncertainty, creating anxiety in me. 

For that reason, I did not feel like living. Just thinking about the future, I could not imagine myself as someone who was graduating from university, finding a job, a partner, having kids, working until retirement and then dying. It all seemed to be forced and unnecessary.   

Who gave me this life? Who has forced me to live in this world full of suffering, selfishness and danger? Who conditions me to leave this world through some natural or destined death? Out of that feeling of impotence, the best solution seemed to be to take things into my hands and take my life away.

That’s how it was in my head, and to make things harder, each time I’d think about it, my heart would hurt, and I’d start crying. I wanted to crawl out of my skin, hide in solitude and wait for those thoughts to pass by. I knew that was not the way and that thinking this way was unhealthy, that the people who love me would suffer.

By the way, from 2015 up to 2018, this was on my mind almost daily. As if two people were living inside me: one that does not feel like living, and the other one suffering from such thoughts. Since 2018 it has been happening less and less, and up to this day, I watch my thoughts closely so that I don’t fall into the same trap. 

How has Mohanji helped me free myself from those disturbing thoughts?

I heard about him at that same period; that is in the year 2015. I investigated about him trying to draw certain conclusions, as there was a peculiar curiosity in me to meet this man. I understood from my investigation that he is an authentic person and a humanitarian with a firm belief that the world can be a better place and that he is working on it. 

It was in May 2016 that I first saw him. As he entered the room where some 50 people were waiting for the satsang to begin, I started crying all of a sudden. As the tears were rolling by themselves, in my head, a thought appeared: ‘The world is saved.’ Mohanji is someone who has made a decision, proven through each word and action of his, that he will serve the world, that he will shed light, peace and love on everyone who comes to him. And to this day, he sticks to his decision. 

A4H - Mohanji Foundation

After that first encounter, I had an opportunity to attend various satsangs and personally talk to Mohanji. He gave me good advice that was applicable to all situations, offered a solution to my difficult state, and in the end, warned me about something that indeed came true. 

I realized that the suicidal thoughts often ensued from the expectations of others, my expectations from myself, problems, existential fears, etc. I wanted to run away from it all. But, through understanding and accepting its root cause, I stopped feeling sad and instead focused on the true values. I’d ask myself: “Does that really matter?” The reasons for not living became irrelevant, secondary, imposed and ‘in my head,’ while the reality was different.

The purpose of serving the world has helped me, pushed me forward, and given me the strength to do even more than I thought I could. There is so much to do here, and I’ll give my best to make the lives of future generations better and happier. 

As of our first conversation and up to this day, my life has been filled with purpose thanks to Mohanji, who is my friend, support, and guardian angel. In my free time, I volunteer in ACT Foundation, a humanitarian organization that Mohanji founded. It provides basic resources for all people and beings of the earth. ACT gives support, solace, hope and spreads love. Many of those close to Mohanji are not only my friends (and how much that means when you need a friend) but are available to the entire world (through Acharya programs, online chat on mohanji.org and other platforms founded and supported by him).

May be an image of 2 people, sky and text that says "We can carry nothing from here when we die except the residue of the goodness of our hearts. The residual goodness travels with us beyond our death. Be good. Do good. Love all. Serve all. Mohanji RESPECT & RESPONSIBILITY"

Nowadays, there seem to be difficulties, problems and struggles in my life, but it is not all that bad, and my heart is joyful. I have faith in dear God, and I’m grateful to him for giving me a life full of challenges and filling it with even more help and support. 

A piece of advice for those who feel suicidal: for determining the cause and finding the way to rise above such thoughts, you can look for help from a psychotherapist or a spiritual master/priest. It goes deep, and one needs to dig deep within oneself and light up those dark corners. That’s why it’s important to have stable support and guidance.

And in the end, I share with you some of Mohanji’s quotes that were most important to me and that have been my refuge:

“Never give up on life.

“Just keep moving.”

“You are love.”

My tryst with destiny – connecting to Mohanji’s consciousness

By Ananth Nalabanda, UK

Beginning…

I was guided by the Universe to chant the Aditya Hridayam (a powerful hymn dedicated to the Sun God) daily whilst studying at the ashram of Sri Sathya Sai Baba. After chanting Aditya Hridayam daily in the morning for two years, I had a vision of Sathya Sai Baba prophesying meeting my Guru in this lifetime. He showed a vision of a sage with a long white beard! I had no clue who this powerful Master was.

Fast-forward 30 years, I travelled to Prasanthi Nilayam in January 2020 and had one of my best energy experiences at the samadhi of Sri Sathya Sai Baba. I returned to London and was guided to include Gayatri Mantra sadhana along with my daily Aditya Hridayam chanting. 

Two months into my sadhana, the Coronavirus pandemic peaked in the world. I was scared initially being in the front-line, but as my sadhana continued, I felt energised with my practice. One night, I heard a voice saying ‘Akkalkot Maharaj’ in my dream state. I started exploring about Akkalkot Maharaj, which led me to Mohanji. I felt all holy Masters were working in unison. 

By divine grace, I came across Mohanji’s divine mission, and there was no looking back.

Humbling experience….

I read about the Mai-Tri Method and was fascinated about it and applied to be trained in the Method. Even though I am a trained medical doctor, I always felt an inner calling to offer holistic medicine to my patients. This had taken me on the journey of training myself with different energy healing practices such as Reiki, Angelic Reiki, etc.

I received an email from the Mai-Tri Method team rejecting my application for the Mai-Tri Method training. I offered my sincere gratitude to the team as they kick started my transformation process. It was a truly humbling experience. I read more about the Mai-Tri Method and how it involves connecting to Mohanji’s consciousness. I got in touch with the Mohanji UK team and what happened next is beyond my wildest imagination…it was as if some unknown force was guiding me.

I was kindly included in the Mohanji UK group by Vijay and the first thing posted in the group was about the pilot on ‘Invest in Awareness’ programme conducted by Nimika, Olivera and Bilajana. During my participation in the programme, I was informed by NellyAnne about the Early Birds Club. I started being part of the early morning meditations and service activities after getting in touch with Jay and Rashila. 

The more I got involved in the early morning meditations, the more I started experiencing a deep connection to Mohanji. I started doing his meditations, and an intense desire to read about Mohanji’s teachings led me to Subhasree. Vijay and Subhasree live very close to where I live, and it was no coincidence that within one month of knowing Mohanji, I was deep into reading about him from the books I received.

Agony….

An intense desire to meet Mohanji in person started burning me from the inside. It was further compounded by the fact that Mohanji was physically present just a few minutes from my place, a year ago. 

It reached its peak, and I slept one night crying, not being able to control myself. The next morning, I see a message on Facebook about an opportunity to meet Mohanji virtually on August 15th, 2020. 

I was initially hesitant to submit a video/audio to the Podcast team to facilitate this virtual meeting, but Mohanji had his own way of encouraging me. One evening, whilst I was chanting the Mohanji’s Gayatri mantra and thinking whether to submit my audio clip about the podcast – Mohanji’s book, which was on the shelf, literally flew and fell down near me! 

I was a little shaken. It was as if Mohanji was saying, you wanted to see me, and now when the opportunity arises, you are shying away!!! After this experience, I submitted my testimonial to the podcast team and had my first virtual darshan of Mohanji on August 15th, 2020.

Mai-Tri session 23/08/2020 

I came across a group Mai-Tri session to be conducted by Subhasree on August 23rd and enrolled myself for it. I also came to know that this day was sacred to Mohanji’s family. 

August 23rd 2020, 3.45 PM – 4 PM. This was one of the most significant days of my life. What I experienced during this Mai-Tri session was beyond my imagination. I share it with the deepest gratitude to Mohanji.

Subhasree asked the participants to have a clear intention for the session, and I had two:

  1. I have an energy block on the right side of the body due to jump-starting my Kundalini energy through improper tantric practices, and I sincerely repented following it. I prayed to Mohanji to forgive me and, if possible, help me with unblocking of the energy on my right.
  2. I prayed sincerely, that even if he is unable to forgive me, he should help me connect to his consciousness.

Life-changing moment…

Mid-way through the session, I suddenly felt a movement of energy in my right lower limb, followed by the right upper limb. Tears started flowing from my eyes as I felt Mohanji’s presence and his mercy. As I started feeling his presence in front of me, Subhasree started chanting the following verse:

Om Shata Sahasra Suryaaya Vidmahe

Avadhootaaya Dheemahi

Tanno Mohan: Prachodayaat

I understand the essence of Mohanji as the brightness of more than a hundred thousand suns together. I recognise this brightness as highly auspicious. May this being called Mohanji enlighten me (Guru Leela, Book 2, Mohanji Foundation)

Then the moment which I will never forget in my life happened. I saw Mohanji, right in front of me, growing bigger and bigger and taking a huge form; it was His Vishwaroopa!!! I was suddenly reminded of this sloka from the Bhagavad Gita, which is so close to my heart.

śhrī-bhagavān uvācha

su-durdarśham idaṁ rūpaṁ dṛiṣhṭavān asi yan mama

 devā apy asya rūpasya nityaṁ darśhana-kāṅkṣhiṇaḥ

 nāhaṁ vedair na tapasā na dānena na chejyayā

 śhakya evaṁ-vidho draṣhṭuṁ dṛiṣhṭavān asi māṁ yathā

The Supreme Lord said: This form of mine that you are seeing is exceedingly difficult to behold. Even the celestial gods are eager to see it. Neither by the study of the Vedas, nor by penance, charity, or fire sacrifices, can I be seen as you have seen me. BG 11.52-53 https://www.holy-bhagavad-gita.org/chapter/11/verse/52-53

I was knocked off for 1-2 minutes after experiencing this divine form of Mohanji. Thousands of images and thoughts started flooding me. The image which Sri Sathya Sai Baba showed me 30 years ago flashed before me. He is the one!!! A deep understanding of the vision I had 30 years ago and the emotional roller-coaster of my life all came to a standstill. 

The wait was over. I recognised the divine Master!

As I write this in all humility, I feel foolish to have limited such a magnificent, unparalleled and universal consciousness of Mohanji to his physical frame. He is beyond constraints of time and space! He is not in a faraway place, but in a place within our reach, our own heart where our soul resides. I am grateful to Mohanji for this incredible experience and offer my sincere gratitude to Subhasree for facilitating this.
