The Amazing Grace of the Master

Grace

By Ulla Bernholdt

In a month, I will be attending Mohanji’s Acharya training program in Serbia. This is a milestone for me, and I find it to be a good opportunity to look back on the year that has gone by in Mohanji’s Consciousness. Yes indeed, can you believe that just a year ago I had barely even heard of Mohanji!

I think it is important to keep track of our experiences, for the sake of remembering the grace of the Masters that made the journey possible, if we ever come to doubt how blessed we are.

Like so many others who have met Mohanji in dreams, I am no exception. Before I met him, or consciously connected to Mohanji, I had a dream in which he appeared: We were seated outside in a garden, on a bench. Mohanji sat in the middle, a blond woman and I sat on either side of him. I leaned my head on his shoulder. The atmosphere was very loving and serene.

When I woke up, I was quite shocked. – It was a fact that I, in the dream leaned my head on his shoulder. To me, this suggests an act and a disposition of total surrender. – So, when I awoke, my mind went “Wait a minute, what is going on? I don’t know this man at all. I have never met him. How could I possibly surrender to him? Who is he by the way? What does all this mean?”

There was a difference of approach to Mohanji in my waking state and my dreams. In my dream, I had no problem with doubt or resistance. Mohanji works on subtle levels which are unknown to us.

In another testimony, I have told how Mohanji appeared to my inner eye in a temple high in the Swiss Alps, and how this made me want to go and meet him physically.

I went on the Himalayan retreat in Rishikesh, where I met Mohanji for the first time. Initially, I was quite skeptical towards him and the whole process that he offered. How do you know if a teacher is genuine? He suggests that we find out ourselves instead of listening to the opinions of others.

I had much resistance towards guided meditations, Conscious Walking and Kriya. – No, this path I thought, was not for me!

But then, at a Satsang at the end of the program, I felt a big shift in consciousness. Thoughts disappeared. All of a sudden there were no memories to identify with. What was left was just empty space, awareness and a deep knowing that no matter what life or even death will bring, I will remain the same, nothing can affect me, I am eternal. Looking at Mohanji, there was no difference between us, not even a relationship between two separate beings existed.

Consciousness

I was in a state of silent bliss which lasted a little less than a week. – Mohanji tells us, that if a state is not permanent, it does not belong to us. It was an experience, and like all other experiences, it did not last. But this was a life-changing one, and it leads me to conviction, trust and faith in the path and the Master.

This state of induced samadhi has nothing really to do with me, but everything to do with Mohanji, it shows the stature of our Master, where he is capable of leading you. Now I do not doubt that He is connected to the Source, that He is one with the Source. He is Shiva or Consciousness itself. This is His Divine gift and revelation. It is a priceless gift, given free to everyone. Out of unconditional love and compassion, he gives himself fully.

Just think about it; that moment in time I did not consider to become a follower of Mohanji, on the contrary, I was rather skeptical, but still, this gift was given to me freely, a newcomer and a mere beginner. What an amazing Grace to receive! Again, this tells me about his stature, that there is no limitation to His love. All we need to do is to be open and in a disposition of surrender for the Grace to flow. Where that Grace will lead us, we have no idea.

No need to say that this event has had a major impact on me. Mohanji cleared so much suffering and agony in me. Since I connected with him, a lot of fear and negativity has gone. In fact, before I met Mohanji, I felt so negative, I didn’t care much if I lived or died, it all seemed such a waste of time.

mohanji-liberation

That has certainly changed. Awareness, self-acceptance and a strong sense of purpose have taken over my life. Through this, I was able to do some major life changes and find the courage to end abusive relationships, so that I was able to focus on positivity only. People keep telling me they noticed how much I have changed, and for the better, so it is very obvious to see even from the outside.

This I could never have done myself through any act or self-effort. Throughout the years, I have tried several therapies, healing modalities and spiritual paths, but none of them were able to clear the inherent negativity in me.

awareness

I have encountered immense love and support from other devotees in the M Family, who have treated me like their own. For months, I would go and meet Subhashree from London while she was working in Copenhagen. Being a pure instrument of Mohanji, she supported me in a selfless way, mentoring and helping me set up meditations in Denmark. She, her family and other devotees in the UK and India have kindly supported me in all kinds of ways, giving me job opportunities and opening up their homes for me to stay, without knowing me, trusting in me, only by the grace of Mohanji.

These are the blessings that are so obvious to me. I can see and feel their transforming effects every day. But the blessings that we are oblivious to might be even greater. What do we know in the end? Nothing! Sometimes I wonder what my life would be like if I was able to surrender fully to our Master. I pray to him that I will be able to do that by his amazing Grace.

Living in our Beloved Mohanji’s Consciousness

Mohanji pic

By Sandra Sankar, South Africa

Every day is an adventure! When I am quiet inside, it is easy to sense our beloved Para Brahma’s energetic presence. There is no need to be in a deep chant, prayer or concentration. To my utmost joy, I have discovered Mohanji is always around whether I am aware of it or not.

Recently, our son turned Vegan after a session of the Mai Tri Method. It was not driven by a need to be spiritual but instead, it was out of his compassion for the animals that were being killed for meat. Having just turned thirteen, he has become aware of the harsh nature of this world and become deeply reflective.

Sometimes, he is downright angry. Sometimes, he can be ever so gentle too, that his heart swells with compassion for all Beings suffering in this sleek modern world, we adults are so proud of. Connection to our beloved Mohanji and his teachings are pivotal to his awakening.

In Mohanji’s loving light, his once bleak future glows brighter. Isn’t that just the most beautiful thing? A young person growing up with compassion, kindness, humility, and gratitude has already changed the world. Mohanji lovingly calls that awareness.

Children like him grow into adults who live in harmony with Mother Earth. We need to make time to nurture and elevate our children to this pivotal point of seamless integration. As parents and adults get caught up in the spiral of helpless apathy, there is less inclination to make changes that prevent cataclysmic outcomes in our timeline.

We need to wake up now. Children need to learn to live in harmony with all beings that share this planet with us. More importantly, they need to conserve and protect the manifested Consciousness that is our living planet! We are overdue for a reset.

Too much of interference has upset the balance of nature. When Mother finally resets that balance only Mohanji knows what that outcome will be. Pay attention before it’s too late. Our beloved Mohanji has already said that the years 2019 to 2022 are a mini golden period of acceleration to connecting with our Consciousness – Soul State.

inner state

So, what are we doing about it? Still living our day to day life without awareness of the momentous importance of this mini Golden Age or not? If we were paying attention to the incredible experiences of our global family, it will be easy to understand the significance and magnitude of this acceleration.

Everything is moving so fast. Time is on steroids! We appear to be moving as fast in our daily lives as the Earth is spinning on its axis and revolving around the sun! The sun seems to be getting brighter. Has anyone else noticed this?

We live on the coast, so mornings are very bright and as the sun sets the golden orange hues appear vivid for longer periods. Even when busy with simple chores, there is a greater awareness of Consciousness at work.

Mohanji light

Have you wondered why it is possible to pick up people’s thoughts no matter how far they live in the world? It feels like the wavelengths of the different frequencies we are on are becoming finely attuned. To think, we all have the ability to integrate fully with each other at Consciousness level is still astounding.

Sometimes when something appears not to work out, it is easy to understand that it’s not meant to be. This translates to lesser feelings of attachment to mere things. It is however still challenging when it comes to relationships. The closer they are, the more complex it appears to be.

Please read ‘The art of seeing rainbows in the night’ by Sandra Sankar

Sometimes the magnificent complexity of how karma works totally floors me. An incredibly vast cosmic chess game in play comes to mind. Just this small glimpse of my chosen life is enough to deliver a humbling glimpse of how blessed we are to have our beloved Mohanji in this life.

Mohanji’s life is about selfless and unconditional love for all Beings – animate and inanimate. Our Mohanji lives His teachings. I do remember challenging myself to walk in Mohanji’s footsteps during a Conscious Walk with Him. Within the first few steps, I was overwhelmed with a sense of resounding vastness and great power that I took a deep breath and faltered.

The physical form is just eight percent (8%) says our beloved Parabrahma Swaroop Mohanji. So, exactly what is the ninety-two percent (92%)? Can we handle the implications of this? Are we consistently working on speeding up our integration to Mohanji’s pure Consciousness during this golden period? It’s an opportunity that has not presented itself for over a million Earth years.

I have yet to come to the point of asking the tree for the flower before I pick it. To come to the point where every tree is treated with love and respect not just understanding that they are the ‘holy’ trees, flowers or fruit. All is pure Consciousness. Can you imagine what our beloved Mohanji sees or experiences?

The ancient tribes of the world were deeply connected to Consciousness. Sadly, modernity trapped in concrete jungles has quickly squashed out every semblance of this wisdom. Human eyes can only see a small fraction of the true light spectrum. Other Beings have more attuned senses than we do.

All too often, I do find it easier to sense Mohanji’s presence than ‘see’ it. Our son also saw our beloved Mohanji’s astral form in the colours of the rainbow. As spectacular as it is, it is only eight percent of manifested form. What else are we missing?

My humble understanding is that our purified ‘intuitive’ senses are our true power base. Seeing with our third eye allows us to interact with Mohanji on the astral plane. Causal interaction requires full integration and stability into Mohanji’s consciousness.

Then Father’s (Mohanji’s) energy hums through our Being. It feels like a multitude of buzzing bees inside you at first. When Mohanji’s energy moves through you, it feels like great waves of soothing energy passing through. Later you realise it is through all other energy bodies as well.

awareness

In time we learn to recognise Mohanji’s blessed presence and surrendering to the LOVE fills us with LIGHT. On this journey, we are subject to many tests as we become attuned to higher and higher frequencies. Sometimes we feel alone and isolated. I have come to regard them as tests.

Consistency and perseverance are stepping stones. Never give in to the negative mind. It’s so easy to slip into negativity. As our awareness increases, we recognise the mind-traps. All I endeavour to remember is that no matter what, I am never alone. Mohanji is always with me.

Even when fear transmits itself in earnest, it does not last. There is instant recognition and instant diminishment. Have NO FEAR when Mohanji is near. Actually, Mohanji is within us. We are within Mohanji. There is NO separation.

It is time to shut down the mind and its limitations and go within. Stop the thoughts from intruding. Watch them without interfering. Almost like they have a life of their own, thoughts become aware of being watched and slow down. Like naughty children! Then mind stops like a child caught doing something guilty.

It’s almost like most thoughts do not belong to us! Almost like, we are bombarded from an external source to stop us connecting to the inherent silence inside. Almost like external interference. As for ‘why’, it makes sense not to dwell on the negatives.

Mohanji on silence

Mohanji always reminds us to focus. He lovingly says we have the power to stop the noise. Our personal experiences are filled with amazing tales of expanding into Mohanji’s Consciousness. Soul State. Mohanji came here to remind us how beautiful we are. On my low listless days, this is enough to pick me up quickly.

It is becoming easier not to plunge into dark states of depression and mind deadening repetitive thoughts, belittling or scolding myself for not being good enough or accepted by others. Self-judgement is getting less and less. My egotistic responses are quickly recognised and dropped. Life prana stops draining out.

“Mind has the ability to project all good things of our life to look bad and ugly as well as to project all binding things to look beautiful and essential.” – Mohanji

Belittling things that people say do not get me down as it once did. Mohanji teaches us to flow. I feel that this humble little river is growing expansive and powerful as it flows towards full integration into Mohanji’s Consciousness. It is all Mohanji’s grace.

There are increasing periods of stillness like I never imagined possible. Silence is an exquisitely beautiful thing. All in all, I am finding a balance between my roles and integrating into Mohanji’s Consciousness. Every moment in this mini Golden Age counts. I’m not wasting one second of it.

There is an incredible sense of fearless freedom from my mind. The chinks on the shackles that once bound me are becoming looser. Again and again, our beloved Mohanji’s grace is always evident. Thank you, thank you, thank you beloved Mohanji! Ever grateful. Humblest pranaams. Surrendered at your lotus feet.

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 7 – “The grace of Kriya”

Mohanji Awareness

In this chapter of Mohanji Satcharita – 7, we present a heart-warming write up which shows how the Guru’s grace is at play. Various tools are available for us to connect with our beloved Guru Mohanji! The biggest and the most precious of these is Consciousness Kriya. Regular practice of Kriya helps the seeker to connect easily with the Master, bringing about a change in awareness in the way we perceive things. Thus we reap huge benefits in terms of spiritual upliftment and an enhanced lifestyle. Many so called stumbling blocks of life seem to fall into place. Read further on how Consciousness Kriya helped Kanika in her life.

The grace of Kriya

By Kanika Gupta

I live in Jammu and I am a Consciousness Kriya initiate. I was initiated by Mohanji in February 2017. However, I started practicing Kriya regularly only from April 2018.

Since then, there have been amazing changes in my life and I would like to share my experiences.

Firstly, with consistent practice, I have started becoming aware of my activities. This is a process and it continues to improve and evolve, even as I write. To give you an example, if I reprimand my child, I wonder why I do so. My thought is, “Why do you scold him? See yourself in your child!”

Another important change is that some of the misunderstandings with my in-laws have started to resolve quite easily. I have always tried to have a smooth relationship. But now with regular practice of Kriya, I notice that my in-laws take steps on their own to settle things! The atmosphere is peaceful.

Watch this video where Mohanji explains, “What is Kriya ?”

Besides, I now also follow another advice given by Guruji (Mohanji). Whenever we perform yagna / homa (sacred fire ceremony), He told me to give as ahuti ( offering) to the agni (fire) any problems or misunderstandings I might have with my in-laws. I follow Mohanji’s advice and the results are astounding. I feel so relieved!

Mohanji Homa

After practicing Kriya regularly for around 4 months, I noticed that I had some stomach irritation and did not feel like drinking tea. Hence, although I could not understand what was happening, I stopped consuming tea. It also occurred to me at that time, that I should become vegan. I have always been a vegetarian. So I have been consuming cow’s milk, ghee, curd (yogurt) and paneer (Indian cottage cheese).

Veganism – a growing trend!

In October 2018, I was fortunately able to attend the Kriya Intensive programme in Bengaluru. Because of Mohanji’s grace, this programme was a wish fulfilling session of sorts! After returning from the programme, there was the Navratras (festival of 9 nights of the divine feminine) and I was able to keep up all the fasts during the period. I also became a vegan on Ashthami  (day 8 of the lunar calendar).  I was able to prepare myself and told myself that I would not consume dairy products, at least at home.

Mohanji Ahimsa

Mohanji explains compassion for the world around us through this story.

Mata’s kripa (grace of Mother Goddess), Mohanji’s grace and regular practice of Kriya have made my life a blessing!  Mohanji is full of love. He protects us at all times and is ever willing to help. Faith, patience and surrender to our Guru can work wonders in our lives.

Jai Guru Jai Guru Mohanji 

Sabke pyare Mohanji 

Humpar apni kripa kardo 

Humpar apni daya kardo

Jai Guru Jai Guru Mohanji 

Jai Guru Jai Guru Mohanji ….

Mohanji, the Brother in Truth: “Sabse Unchi Prem Sagai”

Author: Sujata Joshi, UK

 

Mohanji, The Brother in truth 1 Mohanji quote - fire of awareness

I was at Subhasree’s, after a troublesome period of experiencing energetic disturbances in my sleep. It did happen during the day as well. Eventually I chose to receive Mai Tri method as a last resort to help settle things. Subhasree explained to me that it was important to be open to receive, whichever way Mohanji chooses to work through you.

I prayed to Mohanji, “Let me know whatever you want me to know.”

You see, I was experiencing separation from my guru, who guides me from beyond. This caused me to feel abandoned and unwanted. I prayed to Him before I came to London, “Please, I need confirmation. I need to know You are with me and that I am loved.”

My intuitive guidance was blurred at this point and I had doubts about my own guru, who recently broke His own image and caused many people to be upset. I know gurus do that! They have harder tests than us! They have to break every bond in order to move to higher realms of spiritual heights!

I knew my guru was a high being, but I had no physical contact with Him, only strong intuitive guidance, which connected me to His consciousness like an umbilical cord connects a baby in the womb to the mother.

Mohanji, The Brother in truth 2 fire of awareness

My guru is very strongly linked to Mohanji.

Mohanji’s presence during the healing was palpable. He actually was there! Very gentle. Very soothing! As healing energies began to flow, my tears started to roll!

My guru was there! He was always there! He never left! His funny, witty, loving, flirtatious, even naughty, presence was unmistakable!

I had no doubt, He was with me, I was still loved and protected, despite my various outbursts and doubts about Him, He loved me beyond judgements and conditions my mind had set about His image! I remembered Mohanji’s messages. “A master is never bound by our mental frames. Trust Him! Because the mental frames will keep on breaking!” I bowed to both my gurus and asked for blessings.

Rights and wrongs are man-made! They change.

God isn’t bound by man-made laws of the society.

My Guru showed me the image of Lord Krishna with the chariot wheel, charging at Bhishma, despite His vows of non-involvement in the battle. He broke His own image to protect His disciple, Arjuna!

 

Such is Guru’s love for us. In truth, we are all Arjuna. We just doubt ourselves and forget we are loved!

I am so blessed to receive this communion through Mai Tri method.

I am writing this account for those of us who might have felt disconnected or abandoned by the guru at times. It is not easy to cope with that! Though the real guru is our own soul, we need the external guru to connect us within.

Mohanji has always been there to rescue me. Even before I knew about Him!

Mohanji, The Brother in truth 5 fire of awareness - Manasarovar lake - devotion

I received clarity later, much later, as my healing actually continued for days after. I was still in bliss, sleeping soundly, eating well and generally getting deeper and deeper in solitude of the loving embrace of my spiritual mother, my guru. Days later I recognised.

In my mind’s eye, was the question, why do I call Him (Mohanji) my brother?

Mohanji had rescued me from being an exotic dancer, hundreds of incarnations back. He had called me his sister since then!

Beloved brother, in deep love and gratitude.

Mohanji, The Brother in truth 6 - silence - quote - more eloquent than words

 

Hovering “I” on Bosnian Pyramid with Mohanji

Author: Biljana Vozarevic, Serbia

“I am the source. I am the powerhouse. I do not become tired or depleted, ever. I am just like the candle that can light many candles and still maintain the same glow and glory.” Mohanji

Hovering “I” on Bosnian Pyramid with Mohanji 1, experience
Apart from the visits to the pyramid of the Sun, the pyramid of the Moon and other pyramids as well as spending time in the amazing Tunnel Ravne, our 5-day pilgrimage to Bosnian Pyramids in 2016 included a visit to the Vratnica Tumulus. It was a spring sunny day, suitable for such an endeavour. It had been raining for several days before our visit. So this sunny day was like a gift.

Hovering “I” on Bosnian Pyramid with Mohanji 2, experience
Day 1 before climbing the pyramid of the Sun

Vratnica means “gate” – a gate to the pyramids. It is an artificially made, conically shaped hill, which is why it is called tumulus. It happens to be one of the biggest tumulus in the Balkan region. This place was discovered in 2010. A team of Croatian physicists detected electromagnetic phenomenon – an energy beam of 28 kHz on top of it.

Hovering “I” on Bosnian Pyramid with Mohanji 3,4 experience
Climbing to Vratnica Tumulus

We were very interested in this phenomenon. It is a frequency which defies gravitational force and allows levitation. This explains how they moved such huge concrete blocks up so high. Our primary and loving guide, Ajdin, who had been there with us for the first few  days of the pilgrimage wasn’t available. The guide who accompanied us was quieter and provided less information. Mohanji had suggested that we should FEEL more along the way rather than talk, drink, smoke, check messages on Facebook, Whatsapp, Messenger, etc. To be mindful with our mind present with each breath, thought and action. To eat mindfully with our mind present with each bite and sip. Following Mohanji’s instructions, we really did FEEL the pyramids the last few days. Now we were looking forward to feeling the Vratnica Tumulus. We wanted to experience what the energy of the place would be like. This very place called the “Archeological Park – Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun” works on you and transforms you as much as you are receptive. We were also eager to hear more about it.

Hovering “I” on Bosnian Pyramid with Mohanji 5,6 experience

We first walked past the faded blocks whose colour was diminished by exposure to water, storms, etc. After that, we went up to the tumulus which is a huge megalithic terrace, built alternately from clay and concrete blocks. Our group meditated and did Consciousness Kriya at the top of it. My heart danced in joy for being given the chance to do Consciousness Kriya so close to Him physically, in His aura.

Next, we moved to the other side of the tumulus. Mohanji felt energy radiating from several hills around the tumulus. On the first one, He said that the energy was very subtle and it was not easy to feel it unless you had developed great subtlety. We tried to feel it. However, there were a few houses around where people lived and were in the midst of activity. We were distracted by what sounded like a lawnmower, a drill, or a chainsaw coming from the valley, at the bottom of the hill. Hmmm. Looked like someone was working in their garden. But we needed silence not for our satisfaction, but for our elevation. We couldn’t  properly hear the beginning of the guide’s talk either. Mohanji was silent. Suddenly, the noise stopped. “Oh, what a relief,” we thought. We could feel the place and hear the guide. We enjoyed these precious moments in higher energy. For a short but good amount of time that we could tune in and listen to the tumulus. Later, somebody asked, ”What happened?” Mohanji just smiled and said, ”He went to the toilet.” We laughed. He said it like it was a joke. But we knew it wasn’t.

Hovering “I” on Bosnian Pyramid with Mohanji 10, experience

Mohanji is one with all. He was also one with the man with the chainsaw. He knows my, yours or his heart, thoughts and aspirations. That is why He could direct his actions. The same way as He directs the actions of whoever is connected to Him. For the one who is one with everything and everyone, with absolute stability in oneness and unconditional love, timelessness and ever presence, it is simple to guide disciples away from distractions and wrong choices, while making them go in the directions which turn them to themselves, pulling them from the inside and pushing them from the outside.

Removing this noise, a small distraction on our pilgrimage may look like a trifle, and it went unnoticed by a lot of pilgrims. But it made me ask myself, ”Why am ‘I’ me? And not something or somebody else?” The body is like a shell, and we occupy it for some time, for several decades. At the same time, why wouldn’t we expand to everything, everywhere while still alive? Like Mohanji? The power of the spirit is immeasurable and intangible. To be liberated from our own body while still alive. Keep living in it, but not be bound by it. Be liberated from birth and death and have eternal life, i.e. immortality.

In Song of the Soul, Mohanji writes about an avadhoota who illustrates exactly this. Furthermore, Avadhoota Nadananda told Him that He is also an avadhoota Himself, so these words are valid for Mohanji, too,

Just like one sun gets reflected in many objects without losing its intensity and energy, through the cycle of generation, I exist. I am the string that kept the generations together. I am the only imperishable entity in this highly perishable earthly existence. Sun, moon and stars are formed out of me. Galaxies are within me. All forms of deities are formed out of me. Darkness is non-existence of light. Being me is non–existence of Maya or illusion. I am everything. I am the in-dweller of all beings. There is no hierarchy or supremacy. I exist with the same intensity in all beings. Beings are different, in looks, in feel, in characteristics. I am the same. I am changeless. I am everywhere. I am Oneness.

I have no form. I assume the form of the vessel that contains me. I assume the characteristics of the being that encases me. Even though I remain neutral always, I empower actions, words and thoughts. No one can touch or feel me. One can only realize me. One has to become me, reach my subtlety, to realize me. One has to shed a lot of grossness to reach me, recognize me and understand me. I have no agenda. I assume the agenda of the being and, like a faithful and non-interfering servant, serve the embodied entity till the end. I allow myself to be trapped in the body. I assume the body. I allow myself to be called the body. I even pretend I am the limited body. I never interfere. I liberate myself at will.

Ahimsa, the Vegan Way – a True Inspiration from Guru Mohanji

Author: Shyama Jeyaseelan, UK
As Mohanji says, “If you are sure the world must change its ways, the only way to make it happen is to start with changing your ways. Transformation is essentially individualistic before it becomes collective. And the world is what we have made of it through generations of insensitive existence.

Ahimsa the Vegan Way - an inspiration from Mohanji

I would like to share a transformation that took place within me with Mohanji’s love and grace. Year 2016 was very special for me. It was the year when the sacred pilgrimage to Kailash became a reality, Mohanji was in the UK for Guru Poornima and the UK retreat, I received Kriya initiation from Mohanji and the year when I had the privilege of being at the Skanda Vale temple in Switzerland for the inauguration ceremony of the Somaskanda Moorthi while Mohanji was present. It was also the year Ahimsa the Vegan Café, a dream inspired by Mohanji, opened in London!

Ahimsa the Vegan Way 2 - an inspiration from Mohanji

On Guru Poornima day, an evening programme with Mohanji was organised in central London. I had the blessed opportunity to cook and serve food to Mohanji that evening. It was a simple meal but Mohanji’s kind “Thank you” made me very joyful inside. During the meal, I shared a feeling that had been bothering me for a while.

I mentioned that when our cats are unwell, I feel very sad and do my best to take care of them to make them better. However, even knowing how much cows and calves are suffering in dairy farms to provide us with milk, I was still unable to give up eating dairy! It made me sad how insensitive I was being towards the suffering of other beings. Mohanji simply said, “Don’t worry, it will happen.”

My family had been vegetarian for many years, but ate eggs and dairy products. Until meeting Mohanji I had been unaware of the horrors of dairy farming. As I read articles or watched videos of the dairy industry, I prayed that things would change in the industry. I also realised that by becoming vegan, along with many others, I would be able to contribute towards positive changes in society. Although the intellect knew what was the right thing to do, the mind always won with many excuses. I didn’t want to give up my cakes and coffees! That summer, after the retreat and being treated to beautiful vegan food for 4 days, I came home determined to stop eating dairy. Disappointingly, for various reasons it did not happen. Then the 2017 retreat took place and I was thinking again on the way home if I was going to be strong enough to do it this time.

The next day I was cooking paneer and two things happened simultaneously. I remembered Mohanji saying at some point during the retreat that the Guru we are seeking is within us. At that moment, I had the amazing feeling of Mohanji’s presence filling up my body. As Guru and God merged into one, the decision of becoming vegan was one of the easiest choices to make. How can I give the most compassionate Guru something obtained by means of cruelty and suffering? That moment was the turning point for me to change.

The 1st week after I stopped eating dairy products, I felt very light physically. Emotionally and mentally, it was joyful to know that I was contributing in some small way to make positive changes to society. Approximately 542,000 people in UK are vegan now! When I say Brahmarpanam, the food prayer before my meals, I have the happiness and satisfaction that I am offering sattvic food to my Guru and God.

Ahimsa the Vegan Way 3 - an inspiration from Mohanji

Looking back, I realise whatever sadhana I do on a daily and weekly basis had started the change in me, but the process was accelerated by Mohanji’s love, grace and blessings. My heart is full of love and gratitude to Mohanji for giving me the strength to change. The bhajan below is sung by one of the children at the Sai centre. The words are so beautiful that it melts my heart every time I hear it. I also had the privilege of offering it to Mohanji during the retreat last year.

“You are my heart, my soul, my own

You are my own eternal guide

You are the one I adore

You are the sun, the moon in the sky

You are the stars that shine at night”

You are my all, my beloved Mohanji.

With eternal love and gratitude,

Shyama Jeyaseelan
