Lessons living with Mohanji – Days 137 & 138

Christopher Greenwood

Day 137 Lesson – Speaking out

Good morning, everybody. I hope you’re doing well.

As many of you will be aware by now, Mohanji was subjected to real serious harassment by the security guards at Frankfurt airport as we made our way from India to Slovenia. We had a transit leg in Frankfurt airport, so after a nine-hour flight, we went through the security checks again to catch the onward flight. Mohanji went in business class, and I went in economy. As I went through, I could see that Mohanji had been surrounded and stopped by police and security guards. As I got closer, I saw that they were completely ransacking his bag pack, and he was being treated with utter contempt. It was shocking, and I can only put it down to racial profiling, as many people were coming through that check, and they weren’t being subjected to the same treatment. It was a real serious incident of injustice.

Since then, each day, we’ve been moving forward with everything that we can, gathering support, and the people who are feeling the importance of the cause are coming together and taking it forward. This is also alongside all of the other activities that we have to do; they haven’t gone away either, so it means that now there’s much more for us to do.

For me personally, this has been a real living example of the teachings, lessons and messages that I’ve shared over the past weeks and months, because it’s almost as if it all came together in this situation to give a real example of how Mohanji approaches life. And the way he approaches life gives for me the best lessons. If I was to just think personally about my experience with this situation and share some of the things that I feel in my own growth since meeting Mohanji, I can see a change from how I’ve handled this situation to how I probably would have done so two years ago. I probably would have been very reluctant to speak about this. I would have had a lot of fear and would have been unsure of what I should do.

But when I wrote my posts, which was my eye-witness account, I felt that I had to speak because I had witnessed it, I was there. It could have been anybody else in my place, but it wasn’t, it was me. I felt a need to share what I’d seen so that at least people understood how the situation happened. A year and a half ago, maybe I wouldn’t have done this, but this time around, it was a natural thing for me. There’s been an injustice, and I’ve seen it, so I should speak about it.

I feel that, for me, thinking about it demonstrated that some of the teachings that Mohanji has shared have at least settled somewhere within me. I can’t say I’ve taken them all in; I will never say that, because there’s always much more to learn. But at least that aspect of being worried about what people think, what people might say, how would I be perceived was completely gone. There was no second thought about doing this, so this is something I recognized.

After the incident too, being close to Mohanji and seeing how he is approaching this whole situation is again incredibly inspiring because it’s re-establishing everything that he has said before in many talks. Especially that if we have the opportunity to speak, we should. Particularly because there are many other people out there who would have experienced this situation and didn’t have the opportunity or platform to share their voice.

Mohanji has made a really great podcast that is coming out today,  titled “We must speak because they cannot”. It is not just about this incident at Frankfurt. It is for every being that doesn’t have a voice – we should speak for them, we should take that as a responsibility.

What inspires me about Mohanji’s approach to this situation is that he’s willing to take this all the way. He’s not worried about what may or what may not happen. For him, there’s a clear purpose, and that’s to bring about a change where everybody is respected; no one should feel unsafe when they’re legitimately travelling through Frankfurt airport or any other airport. No one should experience security harassment. All these agencies that are involved in that process should adhere to good ethics.

This is the goal. The routes to reach there might change, we have to be flexible. Mohanji said openly that something good might happen, something bad might happen. People could shame, defame, or attempt slander in an effort to save themselves. We don’t know what will happen. But what he is clear on, though, is that we’re moving for a purpose. As he said before, whilst our heart is beating, we should do something for the world, we should do something for a purpose. Not just sleep, eat, drink, and other things like that. We can make a difference.

For me, when I read between the lines a little bit more, it shows me that he has no real attachment to any image or the idea of any image about himself. He’s willing to go all the way out there, put himself out there, regardless of what may come. And he knows that whatever comes, he’ll face it then. Also, he’s focused on purpose. So, he’s doing what needs to be done now, today, because it happened now. As he’s mentioned, and as I’ve shared in other lessons before, there are no rehearsals in life. It’s all about now, doing what you can now.

Today, we’ll keep going, and more people are coming to support this. Yesterday, I was reaching out to a US Congressman who had suffered a similar experience at Frankfurt Airport too. He had actually published his experience in the news about harassment and how he was taken aside and kept for 10 hours. So, this is really systematic harassment that is happening at this airport in particular. Madhu will be sharing some more details later today, and we will continue to bring attention to this cause.

I hope you have a great day ahead.

Day 138 Lesson – Raising awareness/frequency

Good morning, everybody. I hope you are well.

We’re moving forward and doing all that we can on this campaign to bring spotlight on this incident of harassment that happened to Mohanji at Frankfurt Airport. We want to push for a change. What we want to see is a shift in the mindset of those who are handling people in airports. We are now moving forward with many different activities; we have social media activity, and we have consolidated some good hashtags that will help us align all the activities. Also, we’re pushing the official channels too. Yesterday, I spoke with a lady who can help us move this forward with the UN, and Madhu has been speaking with others who are looking to contact the German Federal Government. Many activities are happening, and people are coming forward now to help volunteer for this, which is great. What we’re doing is looking to really shift the mindset of people.

Yesterday, I had a conversation with Mohanji about something that’s not related to this incident. It was about people’s operating frequencies. This helped me understand more about how and where people are positioned, and that the change that people need to make might not be dramatic. But if we can shift people’s mindsets just a bit, then we would have done a good job. What Mohanji was sharing was that, on the path of our spiritual journey, we can reach a point where we feel as though there is stagnation, so we might feel as though nothing is happening. And this is usually a state that comes just before a bliss state. He said that when you’re connected with a master, there is always something changing, something shifting. But during this time, we might feel as though nothing is happening.

He likened this to travelling into outer space, that when we set off from the ground, there’ll be many obvious changes. Because from the level of the earth, you’ll be climbing through the clouds into higher clouds, past the jet stream, and finally, through the very final layers of the atmosphere until you’re in space. Once you’re in space, you’re still moving, probably travelling at a rapid speed. But it won’t feel like that. Mohanji shared that, even during the stagnation phase, inside many things will be shifting, in the intellect, ego, and there’ll be changes.

I was thinking then about those famous words that Shirdi Sai Baba has said, which will come handy during this time: Shraddha and Saburi – faith and patience. Mohanji shared that, at this time, the frequency will be shifting, and frequency is distinct from intellect, ego and mind. It’s an operating state. And what are the signs of operating frequency? If we are living with more kindness, more compassion, more understanding, more awareness of situations and acceptance, we could say that we’re operating at a higher frequency. But he also said that this stagnation state, or vacuum state, can be very easy to fall from because there’s not much apparent movement. So, as we feel there’s no progress, we can become susceptible to doubts. Some have even left the path at the stage when they were very close to attaining something. And then there can be a fall.

I asked Mohanji what is a fall in that respect; if people fall, what does that mean? He said that the sure sign is that there’s a drop in frequency, or a fall in the relative frequency that they were operating from. People can then shift from kindness, acceptance, compassion, right down to the lower operating ends, such as people becoming jealous, full of hatred, revenge, all these types of things. Thinking about it now, if you look at the people who have left Mohanji and spoken bad about him later, you can see that’s what the fall was. If they were operating in one state, they quickly dropped to revenge, writing bad, that type of thing.

For me, this also deepened my understanding of what we’re doing through all these platforms. I’d understood before, but this added more depth or another dimension to it. Because the overall vision of Mohanji is to raise people from what we would consider as the lower frequencies, and I say ‘consider’ because it’s all relative, right up to the higher levels of kindness and compassion. Mohanji has also said that he’s shifting the frequency, so that the Satya Yuga, a good age or a golden age can come, and we can all exist in that frequency.

Mohanji didn’t say this explicitly to me, but this is my understanding. I also imagined it like a scale, like a thermometer. People will be at various frequencies – some at the higher end, some at the lower end. And like I say, this is all relative, the higher and lower. But our job, I see now more clearly, is to take people from where they are to the next level. It may not be possible to take them from complete anger, complete prejudice, opinions, insensitivity towards what they’re doing, right up to the highest. It could be a step-by-step process. I was thinking this because of the incident at Frankfurt and the campaign that we are undertaking, which is to really shift the mindset of people and take them to a different operating state, wherein they’re treating people with kindness. And if not kindness, then at least just a basic respect.

This helps me understand then to look for what will be possible. So, it may not be possible that from this everybody begins to love all beings, all creations and wants to live in complete harmony. But possibly, and at least, they should be having that basic level of respect and understanding, and treat everyone equally as humans with decency. So that there’ll be humane airports, which is one of the hashtags that we’re now promoting as well. We want to have humane airports, where everybody’s treated with respect.

I hope you have a good day ahead, and we shall speak again soon.

Lessons living with Mohanji – Days 127 & 128

By Christopher Greenwood

Day 127 Lesson – Appreciating People 

Good morning everybody. I hope that you’re doing well. 

I’ve been sharing in the past days that many activities are speeding up now. The variety is also increasing. Last month, at the Global Summit, we set some great goals for 2021. Mohanji is really encouraging us to do what we can today because we don’t know what will come tomorrow, bringing momentum, speed and pace. 

Looking back through my notes for Invest in Awareness, I found some notes from a conversation with Mohanji on the importance of appreciating people. I realized and recognized that my general tendency when things or activities become hectic is that I tend to narrow down on what has to happen rather than on the people around me. In some respect, this tendency could have a weakness or cause missed opportunities. Re-reading this passage of notes about appreciation and how it can help, I’m relearning that this has a great value. 

We can all think about our own life of what happens when somebody appreciates us. Usually, it makes us feel good, inspiring us to do more. It helps us carry on doing what we’re doing and even push ourselves to do something additional. So if that’s how it makes us feel, then that’s how it makes others feel. 

In a big global family like this, it has great value because there is an element of appreciation behind every innovation and transformation. Someone may have said, “Okay, you’re doing well.” Thus, appreciating people helps an organization; it helps individually and collectively. 

Looking back through some more of the notes, I realized that this aligns with Mohanji’s teachings of giving back to the world. The more we start giving to the world, people, and situations in the form of appreciation, we get a lot back. The more we appreciate, the more we will be appreciated. This is relearning for me.

In all the busyness, with all the activities and the focus to move things forward and take steps, remembering to appreciate the people around who are contributing time, energy, resources and themselves fully to these activities is important.

Hope you have a great day.

Day 128 Lesson – Coming closer to the fire

 Good morning everybody. I hope that you’re doing well. 

Yesterday as we were travelling, I spoke with another person and with Mohanji about the changes we’ve experienced in our life since connecting with Mohanji. For me and others, the shifts are intense as we begin to serve Mohanji more closely. I’ve shared before in another voice message that when one comes closer to the fire, there are two options that can happen. One is that you transform in that fire; you lose all your identifications, comfort zones, and boundaries; or the other option is that it becomes too intense, you get burned, and then you run away. That running away is essentially falling back to comfort zones, patterns, habits, and everything we are used to in life. 

The conversation was a good reflection on some of the changes that could happen. One of the things that stood out in this conversation as a good point of reflection is that I began to see many of the relationships I’ve held in life in a different light. As my awareness increased, my clarity on certain topics and realities of life and relationships was also seen through a different lens. I realized that many of these were superficial and dropped off over time. It’s not because there’s a good or bad, but just the understanding that whatever created that connection is no longer there. 

In the process of becoming more aware and gaining more clarity, one of the challenges is confusion. We’re shifting from a life that we were very much used to, to something different and not used to. That shift requires moving from superficial identifications, or usual life, to reality or truth. These times and these periods can vary in intensity, as I’ve experienced connecting with Mohanji. As Mohanji spoke before, he’s constantly breaking comfort zones. For me, it’s happened time and time again; expectations are smashed, comfort zones are broken, and understanding about myself and identifications are all completely trashed or challenged, which can be very uncomfortable. This path is about demolishing patterns and can become extremely painful because it’s constant.

But what comes out of it is definitely – a lightness, a new/fresh perspective, and more ease in life. Something that I’ve noticed, as I’ve come closer to serving Mohanji, is that there’s really no end to this. There will be an end at some point, but it comes and goes. Time after time, there’s always a challenge of these patterns, of these comfort zones. So when people want to come, connect to Mohanji and serve him more closely, it can be quite challenging. Because as the intensity increases, and if people are holding on to patterns, it becomes suffering. As I mentioned before at the start, there are only really one of two options. It’s either a complete transformation in that fire, or by holding on to past life, it becomes suffering; people get burned, and they leave. 

This is why he always warns people or at least asks them when they come closer or would like to serve him, “Are you sure? Are you ready?” Because the only thing that can really help pull people through is when they’re crystal clear that that’s the priority they want to set for their life. 

Hope you have a good day and will speak to you soon.

Lessons living with Mohanji – Days 77 & 78

By Christopher Greenwood

Day 77 Lesson – “What are you doing for Earth?”

Good morning, everybody. I hope you’re doing well. 

Yesterday was the final and third day of the seventh annual celebrations for the consecration of the Sai Baba temple in Palakkad. It was a really special event. Sulakhe Maharaj, the chief priest from Shirdi Sai temple, came to preside over the day’s rituals. It was great seeing him and Mohanji together because they have such a great connection. Obviously, both also have a very deep connection to Sai Baba. 

In the morning, it started with a Maha Abhishekam: the ritual bathing of the Sai Baba idol. Around the idol, there was tangible energy, and I don’t usually feel energies. The most profound earlier experience of that was during our Acharya training in Serbia, when masters were present, even physically so. That was a very intense and powerful feeling for me. Yesterday was similar, which shows to me that Baba was probably there. That’s how I could feel it; there was intensity.

The ceremony was really beautiful; after Mohanji and the priest were finished, everyone had their turn to bathe Baba, take the blessings, and make their offerings. It was great to see Mohanji because once he finished his work, he went right at the back as a devotee, smiling from a distance, looking at everyone come past him and give their offering to Baba. 

It was similar throughout the day because there were a few other rituals that took place. Then, there’s a room there where Mohanji sits, and people come to visit him. There’s a constant stream of people. Yesterday was busier than the previous days. 

Although I can’t understand Malayalam, I can get a feel of what people are saying. Some people may have problems; some come for just a short blessing; others just do a pranam and leave. It’s a mixture. 

Then there was a planned Satsang with Mohanji where he gave a discourse to everybody. After this, we travelled back to Mohanji’s parents’ home, where we rested a bit. Other people and devotees came there too, so it was like an informal Satsang, where people either ask their private questions, or Mohanji speaks to everybody. 

And whilst I’m here, I’m also busy doing the other work which is pending. So, in between serving people and being on hand for Mohanji, wherever I can get 5-10 minutes, I do a bit of work while listening as well. It’s multitasking, really, which is not the most focused way to get work done, but it’s the only possible way when travelling because it’s back-to-back activities and meetings. 

One of the conversations that caught my attention yesterday was something that I’ve heard Mohanji speak about before, but yesterday, there seemed to be a different intensity. There was also a shift in his general state yesterday; it was much more intense after all the rituals. It was a simple question that caught my attention and stopped me from doing my work: “What are you doing for Earth?” The way he said it was profound. He continued it in the Satsang, and I thought it was an interesting perspective that I wanted to share. 

I was contemplating it again this morning, and it’s quite deep for me, from how I was living my life before and what I’m doing now. Mohanji said, “What right do people really have to complain if they’re not doing anything for the Earth; if they’re just consuming, eating, drinking, leaving their waste, and also disturbing the habitat for many other people?” 

He used the example of a nature area close to here. People wanted to build a home, and when they started digging, they realised it was actually a sanctuary for snakes; there were hundreds of snakes living there. He said that mothers with children and fathers also killed them all, completely destroyed them, and built houses. After this, they encountered many types of problems in life, with health, with cancer, all this type of thing. 

So, the question that he asked is: “What are you doing for Earth? Why should Earth support you?” In that way, he was speaking that many people come to a Guru like to a plumber; when there’s a problem, when there are some leaky pipes, when there’s a flood or something else that’s gone wrong, they’re expecting a quick fix. 

As people might have their own situations and problems, he was just asking the question openly: “In the past ten years, what have you done to give food to hungry people? In the past ten years, what have you done to be kind? What has been your contribution? What are you doing for the Earth?” 

For me, the intensity really stuck. Mohanji emphasised how many people are looking for grace and blessings, but how will the light come in if their windows and doors aren’t open? I think that this is why he sets things quite simple for us, especially with the Act4Hunger platform, where people can serve all four types of beings on Earth. The four categories of beings correspond to four elements of the body as well: beings of the air – birds; beings of the land – all the animals of the Earth; beings of the water – fishes, tortoises; and human beings as well: the sick, the elderly, women, children. 

All these platforms are there for people to be able to give something to the world. So, the question, “What are you doing for Earth?” really stuck with me. And that’s what I wanted to share today in this message. 

Also, just to give you an overview of how it concluded yesterday. There was a ceremony proceeding, and Mohanji came and gave the final offerings of the day. Then in the evening, we went back to the temple. I didn’t expect this and thought it would be a quick visit. But then the small Sai Baba idol was taken out, and it was put in procession around the temple grounds. It was a festive atmosphere with big drums, music, and chanting. Once all that had concluded, Sulakhe Maharaj came back with Mohanji to Amma and Achan’s house. Every year they do this; he does a Pooja and Aarti here in the small pooja room to conclude the day. 

I hope you have a great day ahead and will speak to you very soon.

Day 78 Lesson – Awareness is precious 

Good morning, everybody. I hope you’re doing very well. 

Yesterday we left Palakkad after a stay there for the Sai Baba temple consecration celebrations. After Mohanji had breakfast with Sulakhe Maharaj, the chief priest of Shirdi, we travelled to a location not far away, where we’d stayed before. It’s a really beautiful place out in nature, and we came for an interview with the Altruistic Association of India. They wanted to speak to Mohanji about his life, his journey, what brought him to the path of service to the world, etc. They also spoke about education and its relevance in the world today and about relationships. 

Mohanji has spoken about these topics before on this trip as well. And although most of the time Malayalam is spoken here, one or two words, thankfully, will be in English. So, it’s like you get a little clue of what the conversation is about, and you can generally pick up the thread because of most of the topics I’ve heard Mohanji speak about before. 

I’m beginning to appreciate much more how precious the awareness that Mohanji is giving to the world is and that I’m picking it up from being with him. Because, although I hear about these topics repeatedly, I understand them, and I can agree with them, it takes some time for me to digest and truly understand them fully. 

The learning for me is that what’s been provided if properly understood, is really precious. It’s much more precious than anything I could ask for materially or generally within my life. Yesterday, the areas of education and relationships were used as examples. Rising with a new awareness has given me clarity in my own life; how I can position myself in relation to these topics and reflect on how I was caught up in the societal frames of education and relationships. That caused a lot of trouble for me personally, meaning the usual dramas were playing out time and time again. 

So it’s now bringing the freedom of choice, to be able to recognise and have that awareness that those societal frames exist. And we don’t have to fit into them if we don’t want to. 

Mohanji speaks about this often. He loves original people, legends, and trendsetters because they dare to be unique. That’s one of the key things he wants to bring for everybody. Each of us has our retina or thumbprint. We’re all unique creations, but how many people live it?

When we talk about the education system, it’s generally just putting people into a structure, the society deciding how people should be—creating another brick in the wall.

Mohanji spoke about relationships a few times, too. He says marriage can be a beautiful thing. If the relationship is for a higher purpose, or if there’s something common that two people have if they’re independent and with their own freedom remaining, and if they’re working towards something with a higher purpose. That brings longevity to a relationship. 

However, what you can generally see in this society, is that people come into relationships out of insecurity or an infatuation. And then what gets loaded into that dynamic is a whole load of ownership, of me and mine, and that can cause further complications.

What generally happens then is that people come into something, and then maybe a child is brought into the family, and then the relationship or marriage is all about staying together for the sake of upholding a job, a house, for the sake of a family. So, although people may be physically together, they are already mentally and emotionally separated. 

I was reflecting on this as well, and, in some of my previous relationships, that’s why they started. So, using education and relationships as examples, I immensely appreciate the awareness that Mohanji is bringing for us through his teachings and the general work he does in the world. 

That awareness itself enables settling with extra clarity and stability. It’s the recognition that there’s the freedom to truly live life, an existence as Christopher Greenwood, and explore it without the worry of the societal standards and frames.

That was my lesson, which I was thinking about this morning. Maybe it’s a good contemplation prompt for everybody here as well: what has shifted in your awareness since meeting Mohanji, and how awesome and precious it is for you?

I hope you have a great day ahead and will speak to you soon.

Breathing Consciously

Aditya and Rekha from India share their experiences of practising a deep cleansing technique gifted to the world by Mohanji called the Conscious Gapless Breathing.

Face yourself with Conscious Gapless Breathing

by Aditya Nagpal, India



Most of the time, we are completely unaware of what we have stored inside. It could be emotions like anger, hatred, jealousy, or some desires which were never fulfilled. They are mostly stored in a suppressed mode. We may be aware of them subconsciously, but we never accept them fully. They remain there, waiting for the right time to sprout. But being on the path of fire shown by my Master Mohanji, it is a given that everything should come out and burn. And his grace makes sure that the process of burning is fast-forwarded. 

I have been following Mohanji since 2013 and have heard him many times saying the most important thing is to accept yourself as you are with all your strengths and weaknesses. This is easy to understand but is it that easy to implement? You must be aware of everything you have stored to accept it. I had experienced a huge transformation since I started following Mohanji, but I was always in a denial mode about certain things about myself, which came right in front of me when I did Conscious Gapless Breathing for 21 days. 

During covid times, I have been working from home for more than a year now, and I have had time to increase my spiritual practice. So, it just occurred to me that I should try CGB for 21 days. I had heard that it is difficult to do the process for 21 days continuously. But I always knew that Mohanji would take me through it as he always does with everything. So, with his grace, I started my daily practice of CGB.

In the first couple of days itself, I started feeling some emotions coming out from within. As they came out, I realized that this was something that should have come out long back, and I had been suppressing them. But with CGB, I was simply unable to suppress them; I had no choice but to face them. 

As I progressed day by day, more things started surfacing. It was not only from inside but from outside also. The behaviour of some of the closest friends and family members towards me also became erratic. But when I analyzed this a bit more, I again realized that all this was suppressed within me. The behaviour of the other person with me is exactly how I am thinking about them. 

There was nothing wrong happening; no one was wrong; the external world reflected what I had stored inside. With CGB, all the stored things were surfacing from within; and the external world became just a reflection of that. Then came a time when too many things were coming out, and I did not know what to do. I needed some guidance. So, I just sat in front of Mohanji’s photo and asked him, ‘Why am I so negative?’. ‘What do I do with all this?’ After some time, a strong thought occurred to me- ‘Acceptance and Surrender’. 

It was as if Mohanji was literally telling me to accept whatever it is. Accept yourself and everything around you and just surrender to me. Acceptance is the only way to overcome the negative emotions, fear and phobias that are stored within. But if they are suppressed, acceptance is not possible because you would deny them even if you knew that they exist. CGB brought them out, and it became easier to accept them. And when acceptance of yourself and things around you become better, surrender automatically becomes easier. Without acceptance, you cannot surrender. With his grace, I got the courage to look into the eyes of my own fears and phobias and surrender them. 

I started practising acceptance of myself and everything around me. This does not mean that I became meek or completely oblivious of the things happening around me. But it gave me a better awareness of myself and everything around me, and I could take the right action as required. There was a big release happening, and I was able to accept everything fully with his grace.

As more and more things were releasing, I was becoming lighter and lighter. My other practices of Kriya and Chanting improved drastically, and Acceptance and Surrender became my continuous practice. After I completed my 21-day CGB Sadhana, the release continued for a few more days and became more light. It has been more than two months, and the impact of the process is still there. A massive release of things and transformation has happened. I am much stronger than before. My level of acceptance and surrender has grown by leaps and bounds. 

Acceptance and surrender are actually huge strengths. You accept, surrender and the rest everything is taken care of by our Master.

Words are not sufficient to express the magnitude of the transformation that CGB has brought. It is a real gift from Mohanji. He makes sure that the right thing comes to us at the right time based on what and how much we can handle. All we need is full faith and patience. His grace will make the process faster and take care of everything.

Breathe in Awareness

By Rekha Murali, India


It all began just before the onset of the Pandemic in mid-March 2020. I had the great opportunity to be trained by Devi Mohan in Conscious Dancing, Conscious Gapless Breathing (CGB) and Soul Mirror Process in Bangalore. It was exhilarating learning these new techniques as it was all about centering and alignment.

Somehow I was attracted to Conscious Gapless Breathing. It is a powerful breathing technique given by Mohanji to the world. Normal breathing in itself brings freshness within. As shown through CGB, it cleanses and detoxes from deep within the cellular level when done systematically. The end result is one of freshness and bliss in all the four levels of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states.

Practising CGB during the training made me feel so energetic and relaxed. I learned that doing this continuously as a practice for 21 days could lead to deep cleansing and transformation. I was hooked. It was on my to-do list for some time till I got an opportunity during Shivratri 2021 to guide participants in CGB for five days. Those five days were mind-blowing.

Soon Aditya Nagpal reached out to me and asked me if I would like to join him for a 21-day challenge of CGB. He had commenced practice and wanted me to join. This was very inspiring, and we motivated each other by sharing our experiences and completing the 21 days.

It was not easy, although I looked forward to the morning session eagerly. First of all, I started waking up early to do my Kriya, followed by CGB. It brought in discipline and focus. I also became aware of many deep-seated memories which I thought had been forgiven and forgotten.

Initially, for a couple of days, my rigid body was getting used to the breathing and positions of CGB. But I noticed the awareness with which I followed each breath, and I was totally in it. The mind was free and focussed. I did not miss a single breath and did it with awareness. It left me feeling refreshed and energetic.

Then the reality that this powerful process can bring about unfolded. I had no clue that there were so many things that had to surface. I started getting emotional. A lot of sadness and grief came up. Luckily I did not re-live the situation but only the feelings associated with it. There were times that in a particular position, I would lose myself, go deep within, totally unaware of the external world or simply fall asleep! Although it seemed like an eternity, this deep state would last for only a minute or two.

Each day, I moved from the current state of thoughts and feelings backwards towards childhood and all the associated emotions. As it surfaced, I was only aware of one fact. I had to watch it and release it. The awareness increased.

After every session, I would sit up crying, and during the course of the day, I watched myself in every situation. I watched when I reacted unreasonably, I watched when I was angry, I watched when I would get into my self-pity mode, and I watched when I was happy!

This awareness helped me a lot, and I learnt to accept myself as I was. I understood that this was an amazing technique to help pull out the deeply embedded scars of life and burn it in the fire of ether. As the days progressed, I noticed that I was tuning in to this and was fearlessly looking forward to new things surfacing and open enough to accept it. By the end of the 21 days, some sort of stability came about, and my bouts of crying stopped.

Looking back now, I understand the immense clearing and change that this technique helped me with. Some things that were so important a few months ago miraculously disappeared. Patterns that I thought were essential for living this life doesn’t seem to matter anymore. As Mohanji says, empathy increased, and sympathy vanished!

Awareness of who I am, an understanding of this personality opened up. Some dreams and visions also helped in this process. I have learnt the reasons for my patterns; I have learnt to accept myself as a unique individual with my karmic agenda!

There are miles to go before I sleep, but why fear when the grace of the Guru is here!

Lessons living with Mohanji – days 39 & 40

By Christopher Greenwood

Day 39 Lesson – Making enemies

Good morning, everybody. I hope you’re doing well. 

Yesterday I shared some observations of being with Mohanji each day; there are some changes in his body, depending on what’s been happening. For example, before and after Satsangs, or the recent Bootcamp program, his stomach swelled up to quite a large size. 

I also gave an idea of what it’s like in the morning here. I’ll normally go into the room, and if he’s busy, I’ll sit down and wait until he’s done. I’ll continue with my work. There’s rarely any chitchat; there’s no idle talk because that’s how I have a relationship with him; for others, it could be different. For me, it’s very matter of fact. We’re using the time well because there are things to do during the day; we come together, have a succinct conversation as we talk through the main points. If there are any messages or calls that come whilst we’re speaking, Mohanji takes them; I’ll sit, and then we’ll get back to talking. 

It’s very informal here. Mohanji will generally be dressed in something comfortable; sometimes, it can even be topless, depending on the state, because he can generate a lot of heat. I don’t know how many people listening have been close to him; if you have been close, sometimes you can feel the heat when he’s at work. Sometimes when I go into the room, it’s tangibly hot; there’s a lot of heat, a lot of fire there. 

We were speaking yesterday because Mohanji had some trouble with his foot in September, which meant he wasn’t mobile for some time. It’s better now. He’s keen to resume badminton in the next few days, quite excited that we will be playing again. This reminded me of one of the other lessons he shared with us when we were on the court one time. 

As I mentioned before, he plays with full commitment. There’s no playing just for fun. When he’s playing the game, he’s playing completely. Usually, we play doubles; I’ll be paired with Rajesh mostly – we are a duo, and then Mohanji and Ananth – the other duo. When Mohanji plays, he makes a joke that he’s making an enemy of us. He says that he has to create enemies so that he has the satisfaction of beating or winning, in a joking way, not so serious. But game after game, we lose many times because those two as a duo are pretty good. 

One day he gave a deeper insight into this. We were talking, and he asked, “Isn’t this what we do through in life all the time, create enemies for ourselves.” We said that we go through life, and we create our own enemies; we tend to find someone or something to be in opposition to. Then we can have that satisfaction of fighting and eventually winning. And he said, “You can see that within the whole of society and people’s lives – how people create enemies and even fight with themselves. In the mind, enemies are created, and then all work, effort, and focus are put into pulling them down or opposing them, or fighting, or being in conflict, and people enjoy this. People are proud as they have the satisfaction or the pride that somebody has been beaten, whether it is an argument, positioning, or discussions, or even something larger, such as big conflicts between countries – an ego is happy.”

Then Mohanji said that in life, there are no enemies if you look at it completely. He said, “We create them. And for what reason do we do this? Does it bring any benefit? Does it contribute to our life? We put in a great effort to create an enemy, maintain them and then defeat them. Time after time, we make new enemies, which give us the temporary satisfaction of winning.”

I understood that this was a good thought for all of us, and this question came to me this morning again – are we making enemies? For what reason? Are there really any enemies?

With the Bootcamp coming to a close yesterday, we had a recap session with Mohanji. He spoke about acceptance. If we accept life as it is, then there are no real enemies because we understand that everybody is as they are, as per their orientation. Again, I was thinking of it this morning – who are the enemies in life. Hopefully, soon we’ll be back playing this week, and we can create our enemies again, have someone to fight and struggle against whilst we play the game. 

I hope you have a great day.

Day 40 Be Alert & Be Aware to catch Mohanji’s teachings

Good morning, everybody. I hope you’re all doing well.

Today I wanted to talk about the need to be alert and aware always when you’re with Mohanji and when I’m with Mohanji because it’s very difficult to catch. In the middle of a conversation, even if it’s just general about something practical, sometimes he’ll give a diamond of wisdom or priceless teachings, and it’s very easy to let these moments slip by if I’m not alert. When I asked him about this, he said he’s not interested in kindergarten or ‘feel good’ spirituality. He’s delivering substantial material, and he’s here to make masters, not to collect followers, which means we have to be alert.

I know from being with Mohanji that some people have spent considerable time with Mohanji, and I wonder what may have been lost or are still waiting because it hasn’t been recorded. So, I think it could be a good idea that anyone who has spent time with him talks about it like this, and all these diamonds of wisdom and teachings can be collated. I feel a sense of responsibility to share what comes because some of the insights he gives are real diamonds. Through these recordings, I have tried to do that, but still, due to the pace of the work and activities, sometimes, if my attention is not completely there, it can be very difficult to pick up.

Mohanji will rarely say – this is important, take a note of this, or give any detailed reasons. He’ll deliver something, and it’s up to me or the people who are in front of him to be aware and assess what it is and its value. He completely flows, and what needs to come at the time will come, so most of the time, for him, it’s forgotten because he’s just flowing!

He also really values efficiency, which is why he always looks to complete things within 24 hours, and then we’re moving forward. He also doesn’t stand any Tamas, lethargy. If I repeat something or ask a question to clarify a few days later, it’s a disaster; he would say that we’re both wasting our time. So one has to be alert with him, or one misses it. We all have to be alert and aware; otherwise, we will miss it ourselves. While we have Mohanji, and if liberation is our goal, I think we can make the best use of his time as he’s here for us and the world.

I’ll give a small example of this. And then a bigger example, too.

Once when I was speaking to Mohanji about some event we were planning, he told me to check the Rahu Kalam timings. I didn’t know what this was at the time, but this is the inauspicious time of the day in Vedic astrology. So generally, you avoid doing anything significant like starting a project, or an activity, making decisions, or signing any documents as it’s an inauspicious time. It’s set for each day in the almanac or panchang, so if you’re beginning something or you need to do something important, it’s best to avoid that time of the day, as per Vedic Astrology. 

At one time, we were planning an event, so he asked me to bring his mother’s calendar, which has all the details on there (she keeps good track of everything, in the house and outside). This calendar had dates and had the auspicious times, and he read them out for the week. I took note of that. Then that was it, the event happened, and we chose the right timing.

Then a month later, Mohanji asked me what time we should sign a document; I hadn’t realized that those timings were the same for every day of the week. I thought it was just specific for that week. So I didn’t really take a note beyond that and register it, so we could check it each day, each week if we’re planning an activity. I asked, “So each week is the same?” He just simply said, “Why do you think I told you this? Now we’re talking a month later, and we have to talk about it all again. Why are we wasting time like this?” So, to that level of detail – you might think of it as something small, but you have to be aware. This is the same for the big teachings as well.

Mohanji is always giving clarity at the time, and he says, you can ask me as many questions as needed at that time. But he’ll never explicitly say this is what you need to think about. So, in the above incident, I assumed it was only needed for that week, but it wasn’t the case. Over time, and especially the time I’ve lived with him here, I’ve attended most of Mohanji’s meetings, the Satsangs, and the programs, and he has given a lot of information. Recently in the Bootcamp, he was giving the whole roadmap to liberation, practices, and the processes to achieve the ultimate.

In one of my previous recordings, I spoke about Devi Amma, and Satya Sai Baba visited her. She was performing birthday puja for Baba when he appeared and spoke to her. He said that he is very proud of the work that Mohanji is doing. Devi Amma is also deeply connected to Sage Agastya, who told her that Mohanji doesn’t need to learn anything while he’s here. He has come fully accomplished; all he has to do over time is reveal what he’s doing all the time, that’s if we can catch it.

For example, a couple of months back, on the 10th of October, Mohanji was scheduled to implement just a 10-minute meditation which he hadn’t prepared, but he spontaneously gave an Awareness Meditation that focused on the gap or the space between the inhalation and the exhalation, and it was for 10 minutes. After he finished, he turned to us in the room (we set up the camera and sound) and said that he had just given an Avadhoota practice. If people caught it, they would reach great heights because finding that gap between the breath is the key to heaven.

Then yesterday, during the Reinvent Yourself retreat, he hadn’t planned anything – he doesn’t like to, in some ways. Mohanji connects to the energy of the group and then delivers as per what’s needed. So yesterday, he delivered a process called Chidakasha, which is incredibly powerful, and many people said they felt it. He said that this was an advanced ascension process, which masters give; an incredibly powerful process because it aims to install the guru inside us, behind the third eye, and activates the pineal gland, which opens up people for completely vast dimensions. He said people usually say to install the guru in the heart for connection, whereas this is bringing the state of the guru into you so that you merge with that state and you become it. It was the same with the second process, which was finding silence, and this could also take people deep inside.

I wonder how many people caught that. He delivered perfectly, but then it’s our job to catch it, be alert, and be aware of what’s being provided. So now, reflecting on that, I want to create a section in the office team where I can have a group of people who are dedicated to capturing this kind of information, packaging it as processes, courses, even books. In this way, precious material that comes is properly documented for now and for posterity. I start the search for that team today. 

I hope that was useful for you and interesting. And the key message with Mohanji – Being alert, being aware.

Lessons living with Mohanji – Days 29 & 30

by Christopher Greenwood

Day 29 Lesson – The household chores (or service) – An answer to a question from a listener 

Good morning, everybody. I hope you’re doing really well. 

This morning, I wanted to thank everybody who provided some feedback on the form that I sent. It really helps me get an understanding of whether these messages are useful for people. Also, it was an opportunity to have some questions from people too about what they would like to know about living here in the home. 

So the first question that came back, that I’ll speak about today, was how the inmates contribute to the house chores, which made me laugh because I don’t know if it was meant to be inmates or meant to be housemates because ‘inmates’ are actually the people who are locked in a jail. So I laughed at this, and I’ll take this as ‘housemates’, and I’ll use that for the question. 

I like this question because there’s a very straightforward answer I could give. But I think this would miss some of the subtleties and the dimensions of the environment of this home. I also liked it because it took me back to Mohanji’s latest book ‘Mast’, which he recently released. For those who don’t know, it’s the story of Atmananda. He did a blog series on Atmananda. He is a perfect Avadhoota. It’s an amazing story; it’s really powerful because it delivers the teachings of the tradition in such a beautiful way; I really recommend it. 

In one of the book’s early chapters, I think it’s chapter two; it describes when the young Atmananda Brahmadeva arrives first at Maharishi Shantananda’s house, or the Gurukul, where he comes to study under the tutelage of the master. It painted a really lovely picture of the home: of the house itself, the quarters where people stayed, where people were in the rooms, where people would be chanting or doing meditation. Also, other aspects of the home were described, such as Nandi – the bull, who would come outside and arrive and depart at certain times, and how the fellow students would interact, including how they got on with the chores. 

Having read it, I feel it’s probably very similar. Without having read the book, I probably would have answered that question very differently, and some of the subtle aspects would have probably gone unnoticed. 

First of all, once I arrived, and even now, nothing’s really asked of me, or of others in fact. It is asked only that the respect is upheld, that space is treated well and looked after. Also, we’re asked to be conscious of the food that we use; we’re making sure that the right amount of water is used, as well as with everything we do and any other services. 

I remember when I first arrived, I was looking for the house rota, the cleaning rota, or when we will have regular meetings to decide who would take which chores. That didn’t happen. Before the book was released, Rajesh said to me, “You don’t need to worry about that. Generally, things just flow here; what needs to happen happens”. That’s definitely the case. 

Just like in the book, everyone takes part in the work, depending on what they’re doing and where they are situated in the house. If somebody forgets to take up a task, then somebody else would just come and quickly pick it up. So, it’s like a harmonious dance that happens without much fuss, discussion or communication. It’s like everyone is attuned to the needs of the space. So there are no real complaints or problems. It’s just the understanding that everything needs to be kept in order. 

Naturally, people pick up tasks as needed. So there’s a cook, whose main job is to prepare the food. Ananth does a really good job of helping her in the morning because he’s downstairs. He also makes sure that the lamps are lit and tended to, as they’re down there, and he also makes sure that Mohanji has his morning tea and fruits. 

As I’m on the first floor, I generally take care of those areas. So, the sweeping, the mopping up here, and from time to time, if I see that Mohanji’s room needs to be swept, I’ll do this too. Regarding washing clothes and everything like this, everybody takes care of that; everyone takes their share. It’s the same with the outside of the house as well. We’ve got a beautiful ring of tulsi plants that have been planted, as well as a small patch that’s been set up for growing tomatoes.

We have these tubes for coherent water, so usually, we have those buckets with water. So, after he does his morning Homa, Rajesh makes sure that all the gardens are tended to, that everything has been watered. If the birds and other beings need feeding, it’s whoever happens to be in the kitchen at the time that will take care of this. 

All this is unless Mohanji specifically asks somebody to feed the birds because he usually does this when someone big from another place will visit soon. So he’ll advise to put some food out for the birds. And then quite soon afterwards, you’ll see a big crow come. And he said that usually, this helps people clean karma or lineage karma of the ancestors. 

So, in short, we all do our chores. It happens quite harmoniously in the household, with peace and minimal fuss. But it’s a really nice way that it all happens because there’s no set plan, no set agenda. It’s just organic, and activities happen as they need to, just like in the book. 

So thank you for listening. I hope that was useful. I hope I answered the question, and thank you for sending it.

Day 30 Lesson – If you are on the court, play the game 

Good morning, everybody. I hope you’re doing well. 

I’ve mentioned before that sometimes the best lessons gained here have been unspoken. Through observation, awareness and being alert, it’s possible to pick up a lot from Mohanji. With the day-to-day experiences at the house as well, there are many opportunities for that. 

I don’t know if many people know, but Mohanji really enjoys a game of shuttle badminton. There’s a court close to the house. It’s a full-court – a hall with tall ceilings and plenty of space. For a period of time, we were playing most days. When Devi, Mila, and Jelena were here, everybody would play. Everybody, by the end of the time, really improved. The games were becoming quite intense and competitive, with lots of shouting, screaming and passion. Devi and Jelena were completely fired up in the last days; they were really doing well, winning games. 

Once Devi, Mila and Jelena went back to Europe, it would mainly be me, Rajesh, Ananth, George and Mohanji who would play. We played doubles. When I think back to some of the times making these lessons, I actually learned a lot there. Not just how to play badminton, I had some skill of that before, but it gave me an opportunity to see my own attitude towards playing in games, and also in life in general. Maybe this is applicable to others, too. 

One major learning for me was witnessing my own passivity to life, being passive, and just letting life go, but not really being fully involved. I felt that it was a reflection of my involvement, both in the game and in some incidents in life, and I’ll explain a little bit more. 

So when Mohanji does something, he is fully there, completely; he gives everything, the full effort, full concentration. So, at first, to go and play with him was quite intimidating. You could probably imagine this for yourself; if you were there, standing in front of him on the opposite side of the net, Mohanji in front, and you’re playing a game. It’s especially intimidating because he’s not giving any chances. He’s fully there; he’s fully playing no matter what; he’s there completely. He’s actually good. His signature move is a smash. He has an uncanny ability to be able to smash with full force nearly every shot. So there’s no easy playing or easing into the game. You just have to learn, and you just have to play. 

He would even make jokes with us as well, that we can’t even beat a man nearly twice our age. But this was only joking, not boasting because, after the game, he’s not so interested. There’s no arrogance; it’s just playing, for the exercise and for the joy. 

So, for the first games, I was very hesitant; I’d give some effort, but not my all. I also wasn’t very interested in winning. I’ve never really had that feeling to win games, nor that over-competitive streak. But game after game, Mohanji was consistent. He enjoys giving his all. Even when he had an injury, he would be fully committed. 

So, many people experience a loving side of Mohanji, but he very much has this warrior aspect to him, too. It’s not exactly demoralizing, but game after game, the same situations happened. It was becoming a little bit pathetic. I wasn’t improving, and the same thing was happening over and over again. 

I would mainly play with Rajesh, and Mohanji and Ananth would be on the other side, and we’d consistently lose. For myself, I know I was playing half-heartedly. Mohanji would always ask or make a comment if we’re actually interested in playing or not. After some time, the realization dawned on me that I was not in the game; I was there, I was on the court, I had the racket in my hand, physically present, but actually, I wasn’t there. I was actually more on the side-lines, watching and just doing the motions. There was no real commitment, no dedication, and probably more importantly, no real fire to do my best. So, forget about winning; I wasn’t even playing. I wasn’t even there.

I remember another time, too, in conversation with Mohanji, he instructed a task, and I was unsure about what the next steps were to take. I’ve been probably deliberating for quite some time, and he just told me straight. He said: “You’re sitting there at the side of the water, dipping in a finger, trying to work out whether it’s hot or cold. In the end, you’re not even going to take a bath. Dive in, take the plunge and see where it takes you. There’s no point in waiting, just get on, get it moving”. 

So I picked up on this, too. Within the game itself, I started putting myself into it. I wasn’t so interested in winning, but at least, if I was there, if I was involved, and if I had some role to play, I was going to do it as best as I could. I think this reflected in my work too. So, with his encouragement and inspiration, I think we all began to increase our game actually. We all become quite good, quite competitive. 

Personally, for me, since being here, one of my patterns has been brought to my awareness – that element of passivity, not really fully engaging, almost being on the side-lines or the stands, just watching what was happening, but never quite being fully involved. I know Mohanji doesn’t like that type of attitude. He said before, “If we’re here, if we have a body, if we have time, if we have space, then we should use it to make a great life, live our highest potential of humanity, and do something positive in the world”. 

I’m learning that as well. I can’t say I have learnt because I’m still learning. But for a contented life, it’s not possible to sit on the stands or watch from the side-lines. I have to play, I have to take the plunge and use life well whilst I have the opportunity. There’s no place for a passive attitude within the Mohanji office because there’s a big mission to do, big work to do, and the world needs it. 

Thank you for listening. I hope you have a great day ahead.

Transformations through selfless service

transformations

The Testimonials Team is happy to publish a series of beautiful experiences by our volunteers. Selfless service brought forth wonderful experiences that helped them recognise and accept the various transformations happening within them. We share here two profound experiences by Sankaranarayanan Meetna and Chitra Aylam.

Transformations after meeting Mohanji

by Sankaranarayanan Meetna

Like any other ordinary man and totally new to the spiritual world, when I met Mohanji, my overwhelming feelings were mostly in the form of anxiety and doubts. I often asked myself about my preparedness and my eligibility for any possible entry to this new wonderful world. But very interestingly, each time a new question or doubt awakened within me, I happened to get an answer either through a speech or a blog/FB post of Mohanji

Sometimes I felt that through these valuable hints, Mohanji was directly addressing my doubts and questions!! 

It has been six years since my first meeting with Mohanji. I don’t know about the spiritual part, but yes, there is an emotional transformation within me. Earlier I was very serious about all happenings in my life, like thoughts, patterns, persons, acquired properties etc. Quite often, I used to fall prey to my anger and cry for self and others’ perfection. Honestly, I can say that after I started learning through Mohanji’s teachings – blogs, speeches and satsang etc., slowly but steadily, he made me understand the need and importance of ‘Self Awareness’ in all walks of life. 

Mai-Tri Method

Among the numerous things I received from Mohanji, an important technique was the Mai-Tri method. I had been suffering from a headache for quite a long time. One day the problem got very acute, and I decided to get a Mai-Tri done. With Mohanji’s grace and the effect of Mai-Tri, I got complete relief from my headache.  

On another occasion, I had participated in the online Group Mai-Tri Method session conducted by Preeti Duggalji during the peak days of the Covid 19 pandemic in July 2020. During that session, I experienced a bright light energy fly away from my Swadhishtana Chakra level. Though I was not sure about the effects of this, overall, I felt so pleasant after that. I hope a sort of inner cleansing must have taken place because of this Mai-Tri. I express my gratitude to Mohanji and Preetiji for this beautiful experience.

Participation in Seva Activities

With Mohanji’s blessings, I could participate in a few seva activities also. The first seva activity I participated in was at Kurnool during the Ugadi Seva in 2017 – an annual offering of seva activity for the Shiva bhaktas going to visit Sri Sailam Shiva Temple. It was an eight-day-night service camp, including oil massaging of Shiva bhaktas’ feet, serving food/drinking water, medical treatment, resting place for the bhaktas etc. Masters – Nadananda Guruji and Mohanji were enormously pouring their blessings on the Shiva bhaktas and gave the energy to the seva volunteers who were involved in seva activities throughout day and night. The vibrations from Shiva Mantra chanting by both, Shiva bhaktas and the seva volunteers bound them together as one entity, as both surrendered fully at the feet of Lord Shiva. Thus the seva would become above all doership and ownership barriers. It transforms from mere performing karma to a divine state of oneness. Everything felt fully dissolved in Shiva Tattwa. 

With Mohanji’s blessings in 2019, I could participate in the ‘Sabarimala Ayyappa bhakta pada seva camp also. This service was specially meant for those Ayyappa bhaktas going to the Sabarimala pilgrimage by walking more than 60 km through dense forest. Here our seva activity was oil massage of Ayyappa bhakta’s feet.

Conscious Walking and Consciousness Kriya

Before applying for Consciousness Kriya training, I used to practise Conscious Walking alone. I would start the walk around our apartment premises early at 5.30 am. The walking path was almost three fourth of a kilometre around the apartment block. I used to walk about eight rounds, enjoying the nature and strengthening my connection within. 

And after a wait of almost six years, I was blessed to enrol into the Consciousness Kriya practice. I had applied online for the CK training programme. On 12th December 2020, I underwent the CK training programme online and have been practicing consistently since then.

To conclude, all these techniques and practices helped me immensely. Slowly this ‘self-awareness’ started to give different colours to my habits and my overall outlook towards the world. I am so impressed with Mohanji’s teachings of “how to get relief from anger and disappointment”. He explains that we need to accept everything and everybody the way they are, not change them according to our requirements. This also enabled me to get rid of my unnecessary worries and fears!

I am unable to claim any specific spiritual transformation within me during this period. However, I am sure of one fact without a doubt that I am a bundle of so many karmic residues which are difficult to break or dissolve. I do not have any detail of the same. Only one thing I know is I badly need the help of the Master. Since the Master can understand everything within in no time, only the Master can help me out in this matter. I hope he has already started some work on me by hammering, hitting, pulling and pushing over and over again, as the rigidity is so strong in order to mould me to a different shape.  

I hope many more experiments and testing periods are on the way. 

Without wasting any more time or doubting his power and disrespecting the Grace of the Master, I humbly surrender fully at the feet of my Master Mohanji.

I’m truly blessed for having so many experiences during my journey as a seeker. My humble and ultimate prayer to Mohanji is to guide me towards the path of Eternal Liberation kindly. I express my humble gratitude and pranaam to Mohanji and prostrating at his feet.

Awareness through Service

by Chitra Aylam

Kerala was hit by floods in 2018, six months after I first met Mohanji. I had known only very few followers of Mohanji by then. When I saw people in panic, I quickly called my immediate family members and discussed what to do on our part. Seeing my fellow beings in such a plight and keeping quiet was not possible for me. At the same time, I sent an email to the volunteer team by searching on the website for activities initiated to assist the people in Kerala but didn’t get any reply. So, after two days, I messaged Sri Devadas, who promised to let me know. Within one or two weeks, I started buying, sorting, packing, distributing, attending to many calls through WhatsApp, messenger etc., which was almost a 20-hour work. 

But, when I saw people didn’t even have enough clothing and were waiting for some organizations to bring them food and water, I understood that Mohanji initiated every work I was doing for a good purpose. Each time I stepped out of the house to buy for the service, I would find many others offering the same stuff without being asked, guided by the Masters to reach out to the right persons. I understood that in the absence of ego, the Guru works through us; the only thing that matters is faith in the Master.

Now, during this pandemic, Kerala is more strict compared to other states, and it is difficult to hand over stuff to patients, inmates of any orphanages or the deprived directly. But, recently, when I went to the palliative care (hospice), two hours away from my house, I found that someone whom I have not met yet but connected with the hospice (where so many inmates are waiting for their last call) had arranged with the Director for my visit to those patients. I could see the leela of Mohanji here too. Significant learning is – Mohanji does all the work, and I am just an instrument for him to work through.

Daily at home, birds come for food and water because all the hotels nearby are closed during this period. For me, every sharing gave me an insight into where I stand now and allows me to be grateful for whatever I have with me. Sharing is caring. When I see the beautiful smile on the receiver’s face, a pleasant feeling of contentment fills my heart. I get benefitted when I feed my fellow beings, whether human, animals, plants, birds or fishes. So many people have lost their jobs or salary has been cut. So, only through kind words we can change the depressed states of many. 

I bow down in gratitude to dear Mohanji and Ammucare Charitable Trust for raising my awareness level regarding ‘Daan’ (giving).

Shiva – the place where all rivers meet

Ulla Shiva

by Ulla Bernholdt, Denmark

I want to share my personal experience during the six-day program of Shivaratri 2021, which I feel transformed me and has led me to higher awareness.

The program consisted of different modules led by Mohanji Acharyas, including daily blog reading, chanting, homa, Conscious Gapless Breathing, meditation and experience sharing leading up to Mohanji’s satsang on Shivaratri and a 12-hour live Homa from his home. In one of the scheduled zoom calls, Mohanji Acharya Sjarn read a Mohanji blog about Shiva, a blog that I have read before and may have understood from a mental point of view.

Shiva State of Consciousness – an aspiration of every yogi

But this time, I felt different. While listening, I could feel Mohanji’s energy very tangibly inside me moving up my spine to the top of my head. I spontaneously began to see inside my head the different teachers and Masters that I have connected with and all the different processes that I have practised at different stages in my life. It then dawned upon me that the driving force, the connection and the source of all experiences behind them were Shiva.

Shiva is the red thread connecting all the beads from seemingly quite different processes I have encountered – from Christ to Zen to Mohanji’s Consciousness – just to mention a few. The scattered pieces of a puzzle began to synthesize. The energy and joy rising from that realisation were almost uncontainable. I had been searching for the One – the indivisible, and Shiva had been there all the time! Oh, what joy!

Actually, I was not home while listening to that zoom call. I was riding my bicycle while trying to concentrate on listening to every word at the same time. There I was in the middle of the road and the daily business as usual, and it seemed a bit surreal to me, compared to the feeling I had inside of elevation and expansion, feeling overjoyed, ecstatic, and immensely grateful to Mohanji and the Tradition. I felt like flying! The scene reminded me of the one in a feature film: E.T, riding the bike in the air, do you remember it?

I have been meandering through many rivers (following many different paths), and in a split second, during the reading of Mohanji’s blog, I found myself in a place where all the rivers come together.

I felt I was watching the source of the rivers, the Sangam where rivers meet, and the sea where they end, all at the same time. To me, Mohanji is such a place. Because he encompasses all aspects in every one of us, every state we are in and every stage of our evolution, and he responds accordingly, allowing us to have our individual expression and course. Many a time, I have heard him answering people according to their mode. Once, we were taking a dip with him in the Ganges’ holy waters during a Himalayan retreat, and a person asked if the Ganges really is that sacred or if it is just a symbolic representation, a myth? Mohanji answered that it is just a symbol, according to the doubting mind of the questioner. At least, that is my personal interpretation of the situation.

Another reminder for me of the unity of Shiva was that during the daily zoom calls, I reunited with friends I have met and spent time with a long time ago in some other contexts than with the Mohanji family. Here, we were brought together again by the love of Shiva.

One of the elements in the meetings was Mohanji’s Power of Purity meditation which I have been fortunate to conduct for other people many times, but not being able to participate in myself more than a few times. In the meditation, I felt Mohanji’s hand on my forehead and the top of my head receiving his Shaktipat.

The whole process starting with the inner cleansing, participating in Conscious Gapless Breathing, fruit fasting, chanting, and culminating with Mohanji’s Satsang and the powerful Homa has been such a gift without any effort just like the flow of a river following its natural course. I am sure our Shiva, Mohanji, has enabled many of the participants to explore deeper aspects of themselves during these days.

As I end this testimonial, I would like to thank all the Acharyas and participants involved in the process and our dear Guru Mohanji for their untiring selfless service and intention to reach higher awareness of Shiva.

Lessons living with Mohanji – Day 5

Mohanji Arunachala

Day 5 Lesson – Living consciously

by Christopher Greenwood

When I arrived at the house, I was received with a welcome as a guest. In the early days, I would often sit at the table for breakfast and lunch with Mohanji. Before anybody eats in the house, food is offered to the beings around the house – birds, squirrels, and even ants. One time during lunch, I noticed how clean Mohanji’s plate was – it was spotless. And I made a mindless comment about him having such a clean plate; I was not thinking.

This was when he told me about the karmic implications of wasting food. Even a grain of rice has an impact, as this has the potential to become a field of rice. He shared a story about this.

Whilst I thought I lived consciously, I realized that there is always more I can do, especially as I feel responsible for making this Earth better for the generations to come. Simple but powerful changes can begin at home.

Good morning, everybody. I hope you had a great day yesterday. 

Today, one of the lessons which I’ve learned living with Mohanji is about living consciously. And this is living consciously with our own environment and the impact that we have on Earth. This is from an observation of Mohanji, and I feel it’s a really important awareness to have in our lives, as it’s about the consumption of what we have in the world, of the basics such as food and water. 

In a previous recording, I shared that the majority of Mohanji’s teachings aren’t necessarily spoken, and you have to have a keen eye to observe. And they can be incredibly profound. And I’ve also heard somebody say that if you don’t keep a close eye on Mohanji, he could easily slip away. Because he’s not overtly teaching here when we’re in the house – we’re not sitting down in a satsang and sharing. But everything he is doing can actually, potentially become a lesson if we have the eyes to see. And one of the overarching teachings which Mohanji shared to many is that everything we do here on Earth comes with a price. We have Earth, and we’re using it as a platform for our experience. So, what we think, what we say, what we do – it all has some cost. And he believes that we should be leaving it a better place than when we arrived. 

So, when I first arrived at the house, there would be some days where I would have breakfast and lunch at the same time as Mohanji. At that time, I was a new guest, and I would join everyone at the food table. Everybody eats each meal together. Before we eat, all the fresh food cooked that day is first offered to all the beings around the house. So it’s placed out for all the birds that come – the crows, the various other Indian birds that I don’t know the name of. And then you have the squirrels come as well. They will then flick over the food on the ground, so the ants get to eat as well. So everyone’s fed before we eat. And the food is also offered to the deities. 

And during this time, I observed Mohanji and how he was eating – he only took very little food and was very conscious. He didn’t load the plate – he took a small amount and then would add more, as and when he needed it. I also noticed that nothing gets wasted; it’s all eaten. So everything is gone – the plate is completely clean, even right down to the last grain of rice. I think I just made a thoughtless comment at that time about him having a clean plate. And this is when he told me that everything here has a price and that we should respect everything – all our materials. He said that wasting food actually comes with a karmic price because even a grain of rice (if you’re wasting that grain) had the potential to become a whole field of rice. 

He then shared a story of a saint who was found in the gutters, near some grand wedding party. It was a grand event, a really big affair where hundreds of people were dancing, celebrations, and singing. As with many Indian weddings, there was plenty of food there, offered in a variety. When the people who were having food on their plates had enough, they would chuck the remaining food and the plates into the gutter. Normally the cows would come and eat that food. And he (the saint) was there, eating leftovers. When somebody saw him, they took pity on him because they thought he was a homeless man and he was hungry. They wanted to invite him to the wedding to come and eat some of the fresh food. But he actually said no. He said, “No, I need to do this. I’m helping them because they don’t know what they’re doing, throwing all this away.” 

So that was the message for me there, and it was quite an impact. He also shared that if someone is serving food and the other person doesn’t eat, that burden goes to the person who served it. It had an impact on me; I instantly had a flashback to last Christmas, to my large family; I think there were maybe 20-25 of us; we had them around to mine and my brother’s house, and we cooked for them. I remembered all these plates coming back from all the kids, all half-full, and myself just chucking all the food into the bin. And I just had the realization that this is probably happening daily all over the world. Most of the time we’re not aware of what we’re doing – that’s overconsumption. And then people are probably overeating too – eating more than what they actually need, and it’s just coming out the other end, undigested. People glorify food; they glorify the amount they eat, the quantity, the size, and the variety of foods they have. And I then also thought that this is not just with food, it’s probably the same with water too. 

With Mohanji, we are really conscious of the amount of water we use and everything else like electricity. Since I’m here, I’m using the Indian bucket system for showers and baths – which if you’re not aware of it, is that you fill up a bigger bucket with the water and then use a smaller one to wash. I appreciate that now because I’ve become aware of how much water I used to waste. 

So this consciousness, just from that small observation, has completely shifted my awareness to be more conscious about what I’m using. And these are just the basics – food and water. I can apply that same thinking and logic to everything else that I consume here now. Also, to my personal products – how much am I using, why am I using it, where it comes from, where it’s made, and the impact of it. Technology, cars, washing machines, everything that we have, we’re taking things from the Earth all the time. 

And for Mohanji, it even comes down to the extent where the other day, I noticed how conscious he is about the use of products and his impact as he’s walking on this Earth. For example, when we do satsangs, he has water and might use a tissue to wipe his mouth. When he had finished for the day, I wanted to throw it away, and he said, “What are you doing? I can still use that.” So even down to that level of keeping a tissue is the responsibility that he feels: We should take good care of everything that’s being used. 

That’s the lesson for today, just from a small observation. I hope you enjoyed it. And maybe you can take that into your life. If everybody had this awareness around the world, it would probably be a very different place now. Thank you very much, and speak to you soon.

P.S. I asked Mohanji how we can reduce any karmic burden from food waste. He said by feeding the beings of the air, land, water, and human beings. 

P.P.S. I’ve asked my brother to reduce the amount of food for Christmas this year because there’s always wastes.

The grace of a living Master

shiva

By Tanjila Akhter, Bangladesh

Namaste, I am 23 years old and I have a small beautiful family with my husband and a son who is only two years old. I have completed my Master’s degree in Nutrition and Food Science from Dhaka University. I would love to share my experiences and journey towards Mohanji and how his teachings helped me and transformed my life completely; and how my life became so open from any small and limited notions.

Even though I am from a Muslim background, now I have the same respect for all religions because I realise that even though our rituals are different, our destination is the same. We came from one Source and we will return to that same Source, and this actualization makes me feel that life is full of blessings and grace.

expereince

My spiritual journey started with my first Guru, Sufi Saint Baba Jahangir. But it was just a ritual at that time. Even though Baba’s teachings are very powerful, I found it very complicated to understand the deepest meanings of his core messages with my limited capacity and knowledge about spiritualism. My lack of insight was such that I was not able to understand Baba’s teachings about liberation, detachment, unconditional love, no expectations, silence, etc.

On the day (25th April), when Baba Jahangir took Maha Samadhi, I realized something very unique as if from the very core of my being a confirmation that Baba does not leave us, he is always with us and I felt his presence very strongly that day. Even though I felt his strong presence inside my heart, yet another thought arose in my mind about who would teach us practically when Baba is no more in his body! But I surrendered all my thoughts to Baba with the conviction that time will surely be the answer. A few days later, my husband and I came to know about Lisa who is also a devotee of Baba Jahangir and a Mohanji Acharya (even though at that time I had no clue who Mohanji was).

We created a WhatsApp group with the intention that we could have some discussions about spiritualism. We were 9 people at first. Later on, a few more people joined us. We started our satsang through video call and Lisa started talking to us about various aspects of life and truth. We continued for almost two months, attending the satsang every single day. Sometimes we discussed all night long, tirelessly. All of us started enjoying the satsangs as if a new zone had opened up for us.

satsang
Satsang with Mohanji

Now, this was entirely new to me and I was very surprised just to listen to all these various types of topics which were kind of food for my thoughts. My feelings were such that I had been hungry for this food for long periods of time and searching for this kind of clear explanations and insights which were extremely meaningful to me, and I felt like everything made perfect sense to me now. Later on, we came to know that these were Mohanji’s core teachings, which is the same as Baba Jahagir’s teachings, but Mohanji’s teachings were really easy to understand not only theoretically, but we were also inspired to do things practically.

For the first time ever, I realized each life is valuable in this world and no beings were born to satisfy my selfish desire for food, clothing, etc. From that day, I took the decision to become a vegetarian. Before that, beef was one of my most favourite foods.

One month later, I felt that Lisa should come to my house. I invited her and she immediately agreed, (I was completely unaware what great blessings were waiting for us) and on 27th May, Lisa came to our home and straightway from the next day (28th May) my husband, I and the other people who were present there became completely vegetarian without any effort.

I was totally surprised to see my transformation.  This would never have been possible if we had not known about Mohanji’s teachings through Lisa. For the first time, I could feel how cruel and insensitive we had been! Just for the taste of our tongue, we killed so many lives and this is a huge crime we are performing through our wrong traditional pedagogy. After becoming a vegetarian, my spiritual journey started to improve immediately.

lifestyle

My awareness became sharper than before. I even started realizing the main goal of my existence which I was completely unaware of before. I realize that liberation is my only goal, and I am ready to do anything to achieve this goal. I also realize that all my roles in this lifetime have to be played without any attachments which were never clear to me before. After Mohanji’s teachings, I have started practicing all these things deliberately, and with patience. I never knew that patience could be that hard for these practices, but I am so grateful that I am growing slowly but steadily.

Also, I have learned how powerful gratitude could be! Lisa recommended us to practice the Power of Purity (PoP) meditation every day and just listening to Mohanji’s voice made my mind so peaceful. Now PoP guided meditation has become my regular practice.

Also, I realized the mind factor, and how our own mind can be the highest destructive force of our lives, and with conviction and regular practice, we can even change the blueprint of our mind. In that absolute sense, we all have the power to destroy our comfort zones and make our lives positive and worthwhile by living and sharing unconditionally, which is an act of tremendous courage that we all have. We just need the right guide to give us directions and we are so lucky that in this life we found Mohanji. The absolute Truth in our life is our living Master Mohanji.

I am unable to explain my gratitude to Mohanji, but I am sure he knows my heart which is beating now by his name, all day and night. His name has become my maha-mantra (MOHANJI). With his holy name, one can participate in any aspect of life. This is my conviction. During the first few weeks, my mind was playing a game with me – what if I am doing wrong by trusting Lisa or accepting Mohanji as my living Master? I was a bit confused but Masters knows our minds more than us.

gratitude

One day Baba Jahangir appeared in my dream and gave me confirmation that Mohanji is my present Guru whom I came to know through Lisa. When I initially saw Mohanji’s picture, my first thought was he is none other than Moula Ali, who is our Imam riding a horse in a battle against all negative energies. And I knew that my journey had started with my Guru Mohanji.

On the 4th of June, Lisa inaugurated the altar of Guru Mandala in my house. What a wonderful experience we all had that day. Everyone felt Mohanji’s strong presence and we were all amazed at how Mohanji is giving us so many experiences without even asking. We could offer only love and we did that from our hearts, but Mohanji gave us everything, that love which we never felt in our entire life, even from our parents. On the same day, I saw Mohanji’s smiling face standing in front of my eyes and watching me always.

When we finished the aarati and sat down for the meditation, I felt that Mohanji was looking at me and smiling. Then two glorious faces appeared in front of me and both of them were looking at me with their bright eyes, with lots of light coming from them. A few days later when I sat for meditation, I felt that I was sitting inside Mahavatar Babaji‘s body and his body was as big as Kailash. After inaugurating the altar, I witnessed many experiences. Many times Mohanji gave me experiences through dreams.

During the time Lisa stayed at our house, for the first time, we visited many temples such as the Kali temple, Shiva temple, Loknath Baba’s temple, ashrams, etc. and had various types of experiences.

We also had the opportunity to meet a living Avadhoota, and this was later confirmed by Mohanji (we didn’t know the meaning of an Avadhoota until Lisa explained to us later on). Our experiences with Ma Avadhoota were so sacred. She knows everything about Mohanji, and told us, “Mohanji is Mahadev.” She is blind but she saw Mohanji through her third eye and explained how Mohanji looks like, and she prayed to Mohanji if she could see him in her lifetime.

Now, only Mohanji knows if he would come to us or not, but we keep calling him from our hearts. I want to share about my two-year-old child who has started chanting the Maha Mrithyunjaya mantra and keeps calling Jai Mohanji and Sai Baba all the time. We are really amazed to see how he could do that continuously. Almost every day, my two-year-old child goes to the altar and rings the bell, says Jai Mohanji and kisses him, bows down like a grown-up man, as if he knows everything that he needs to do, and this is truly beyond anything anyone can even assimilate.

It was beyond my imagination that I could have all these experiences and to have found my living Master Mohanji like this. I often wonder what I have done to have all this grace and blessings within this sort period of time. I have also learned never to take anything for granted.

I surrender everything at Mohanji’s holy feet as he is my protector, he will protect me and my family till my end. With this prayer I started my journey, and I will pray until my end. I would like to dedicate the first Guru mantra that I memorized, to Mohanji.

Guru Brahma Guru Vishnu, Guru Devo Maheshwaraha
