No Pain, No Gain

By Sathya Shivakumar

 

July 12, 2017 was “Sankatahara chaturthi”, a special day for Lord Ganesha. I had prepared steamed modaks as an offering for the God that day. My son, who had returned from school, asked for some fried modaks as well. It is an elaborate process to prepare them and as the next day was his birthday, I did not want to disappoint him and made that as well.

My son and I have our birthdays exactly a week apart. A few days preceding my birthday, I started experiencing burning sensations in my body. It started with the feet and then slowly felt them in my palms also. One fine morning, I was drawing a simple rangoli at the pooja room entrance. I usually draw a floral pattern but I was surprised to see that I had drawn feet that day. In India, we have the practice of decorating the floor with the pattern of Krishna’s feet on Janmashtami day but that was still a month away. Why had I drawn the feet, I wondered.

On my birthday,  my sister made a surprise visit to Bangalore. We went on our usual weekend drive to see the progress of our new house that was under construction. On the way back, we exited from a different gate than we usually do. I noticed a board and as it was in Kannada (the local language), I asked my husband, Shiva, to read out what was on it. He said, “Sri Chaitanya Paduka Mandira.”

I connected it to Brahma Chaitanya Maharaj but wanted to find out what it actually was, so I asked Shiva to take us there.  When we got there, Shiva and Radha stayed back in the car as I stepped out. I saw a few dogs and told Shiva, “One of those dogs is staring at me. Don’t want to get bitten on my birthday! ” He said, “Nothing will happen. It is all in your mind! Just go.”

As I entered the temple, I  saw that the main door was closed. So I walked up to the ‘sthala vriksham’ and offered my humble prostrations and birthday prayer. I knew the main tree in a temple’s premises houses the consciousness of divinity but did not at that point in time know that it was an Audumbar (fig) tree. The watchman told us that it would open in an hour’s time but that seemed like a long wait for the others. So I left with the desire to come to the temple another day.

A couple of days later when we went back to supervise the construction, I asked Shiva to take me to the temple again as it is just a few minutes from our new house. We went inside this time and had the place to ourselves as there was no one in there at the time. It was such a unique shrine. We quietly walked up to the second floor that houses the padukas of several masters along with their pictures. I did not recognize some of them. My husband patiently read out the nameplate in Kannada and I bowed to each one. I felt some energy going up my body and prayed that I should be healed soon as the lingering sensation in my legs continued to bother me.

I had initially consulted a general physician for the burning sensation and he diagnosed it as a Vitamin B12 deficiency. But the supplements were not helping much. While my haemogram results showed improvement, the burning now seemed as if it had reached the head. Some days,  instead of heat, I felt that my head was feeling like ice.

I wanted to explore other solutions to my problem and started yoga classes regularly. When I explained what I was going through physically, the senior yoga teacher could not comprehend the problem. She told the lady next to her, “These days people get strange problems!” She was kind and empathetic but could not understand my situation. Therefore, while I continued the yoga sessions, I did not wait to explain the other sensations such as numbness, pricking, etc. that I was going through.

I, myself, was surprised by the strange sensations that I was experiencing. It was because, it was not all pain, all the time. Occasionally, I had blissful raindrop sensations. It was as though something was constantly trickling in my head. Every morning, even as I stepped down from the bed, I would experience a pull going from my foot to the top of my head. I would have mild pain during yoga or while in the pooja room but would start increasing through the day. I had to learn to word all that I was experiencing to explain to the doctor. The symptoms brought all guesses ranging from diabetes to thyroid issues and these were eliminated with tests.

Even as I was physically undergoing some struggles, I also had beautiful dreams. Some of them felt so real. The dreams augured something beautiful would unfold. Whenever my fears reached their peak, signs of assurance kept flowing in and calmed me down. I always meditated on two lines of a Tamil verse “Anju Mugam thondrin Aarumugam thondrum” which means “When you fear, the six-faced Lord appears!” There is another explanation to this verse that my father told me – “When the five-faced Lord Shiva appears, Lord Skanda appears.” (Anju also means five in Tamil)

In October, my music teacher organized a programme at her house during the Navarathri festival. Throughout the programme, I felt heavy pressure on my eyes and made up my mind to consult a neurologist. After returning home, I called my father and sought his advice. He asked me not to worry and that he would do an “Anga-pradakshinam” at Tiruchendur to help me tide over the crisis. I thanked him and also mentioned to him that I would consult a neurologist as well.

The neurologist diagnosed it to be a nutritional deficiency. Although the heating and cooling sensations could not be explained, he gave me some medicines to subside the pain. I did not discuss the problem with anyone except Shiva and my parents. I felt that it was a wasted effort. If a senior yoga teacher and a neurologist could not understand it, I was pretty sure that my sharing this with others would only invite more flippant responses than solutions. With the help of guru google, I had narrowed it down to one of two things – If it is bad, it is some neuro problem and if it is good, it is related to the Kundalini experience.

Shiva cheered me and said, “If your thinking is positive, only good things will happen. Maybe your chakras are opening!” I felt as though he was brushing aside my problem. Although he was being his usual self, he did not really understand what I was physically going through. It had gone to the extent that when he entered the house he would lift his headphones and ask, “Hot or cold?” If I said, “Cold”, he interpreted this as being in a good mood and would talk. Otherwise, he would place them back on and take his calls.  It made me realize that when there is an internal problem one is going through, which is not visible to the naked eye, however understanding people are, none can perceive the actual problem or the intensity of it. No matter how empathetic or compassionate they are, they can only help to an extent. Beyond that one has to journey alone to find the answers.

Speaking of journeys, we went to Chennai that year to celebrate the last three days of Navarathri with my parents. On the way, we reminisced about our fabulous and memorable trip to Kathirgamam (Kataragama) which has a fascinating back story and I went into a reverie…

About 65 km from Chennai, there is a place called Tirukallil which has the ancient Sivanandeswarar temple where one of the first and foremost Saivite saints Tirugnanasambandar sang in praise of the Lord and as such it holds a special place in Tamil history. The main priest of this temple, Arumugam gurukkal was 107 years old. He had great love for the temple and the deity was his life. As the gurukkal had got on with age, he had requested my father to assist him with performing abishekams on special days. He was a great inspiration to me because I used to be amazed by his love for God. He would come all the way to attend social functions in Chennai so he could mobilize funds for the sustenance of the temple’s festivals.

The visit in July 2016, was extra special because it was the “Pre-Kailash Pradosham” as my father used to call it. My father was booked to go on the Kailash parikrama with Mohanji. I did not know who Mohanji was at the time. All that we knew was my dad had met a Master and was keenly looking forward to his upcoming trip. Chennaiites rarely have a stock of winter clothing because of the climate. So I bought some jackets and travel items that would be needed for such a trip. On that day, the abishekam was splendid. I really opened out in the serene atmosphere that surrounds the temple and with no inhibitions whatsoever, sang with gay abandon, assured that the Lord was enjoying my rendition.

After a really fulfilling visit, I headed back to Bangalore the next day. I was on the way home from the railway station when my dad called me and said with equanimity – “I am not eligible for parikrama according to the new Chinese rules. I am not doing Kailash this time. It was a reminder to me that God has his own plans.

My father had given me the book “Muruga, the embodiment of beauty and valour!” In the book, it is mentioned that Kathirgamam (in present-day Sri Lanka) is referred to as the “Dakshina Kailash” or the Kailash of the south. Kathirgamam is in the same longitude as Kailash and a pilgrimage there is equivalent to a pilgrimage to Kailash. Almost a year later, on one of our weekend visits to Chennai for the panguni uthiram celebrations at home, the topic of a trip to Kathirgamam came up, and Shiva said that it would be his birthday treat to my father. As things turned out in the course of that discussion, we ended up with an unplanned and spontaneous booking to go to Kathirgamam as a family!!  It was a big group with my parents, mother-in-law, children and two nieces!!

The trip was filled with fascinating and myriad experiences. We landed in Colombo and immediately left for Galle, where we stayed overnight. Galle is a beautiful beach town. We spent time walking around the scenic town with natural rocks, gardens and Buddhist shrines overlooking the beach. After a good night’s rest, we left for Kathirgamam the next morning. It was a long but scenic journey by road and we took in all the experiences we had along the way, soaking in the stories of Murugan’s exploits that my father shared with us in his inimitable way.

Kathir means Light. Kamam means Love. The etymology also says that Kamam came from “gramam” meaning village and the place was called Kathirgamam by the Lankans to indicate that it was “The village where Lord Muruga was standing as Light”.

Unlike in India where one gets to see the deity in the sanctum sanctorum of the temples, in Sri Lankan tradition (in our experience, this is in Murugan Shrines only), the temple sanctum is covered by curtains that act as a “veil” to the deity inside. The prayers are offered inside where only the main priests are allowed and for the general public, the aaratis are performed to the pictures of the God, on the curtain – considered equally powerful.  It is the same in Kathirgamam as well. We can observe the image of Lord Muruga on the beautiful curtains. During the “mangala aarati”, the rhythm of the temple bells eas so powerful that it transported us to a different plane. One can really feel the energy in the air. The two snake-like bronze images also captured our attention. Being in the presence of Kathirgamam Murugan on our wedding anniversary was such a blessing and not something that can happen because of human planning.

The next day I had wanted to have a second darshan. However, Shiva had booked for the “Yala Safari” for the kids and wanted me to go with him and the kids.

I had read that Lord Muruga appeared in mysterious ways to the pilgrims who had taken the forest route in the past when it was still a dense jungle, and travel to Kathirgamam was possible only through the forests which were dotted by wild animals. The safari was interesting and the kids had a great time. We saw peacocks, pigs, deer, elephants, and even a leopard but what I deeply connected to was the strutting rooster (Seval in Tamil) that passed in front of our jeep and then disappeared into the bushes to our right, just as our safari was coming to a close. What are the chances that you will see a rooster in a forest safari?

“How cute was that Seval?” I asked my husband..as I broke out of my reverie!! The radio in the car was playing and just then, I heard the sound of a rooster crowing on the radio!!

Was I imagining all this? I wasn’t. It was actually the rooster crowing sound as part of a song that followed after. We were on the outskirts of Chennai and as I shook my head in disbelief, we saw a big billboard that read “Tamil Kadavul Murugan – Coming soon ‘STARTING OCT-2ND’. We rarely watch TV programs but a serial on Murugan seemed interesting.

My thoughts shifted again to the physical sensations and pain and just then, I saw another sign – in bright bold letters on an auto that read

Message

This message hit home deeply. Was all my pain going to result in some gain? What life-transforming outcome was I being led to through this serious examination of my physical and mental faculties?

On one of the days during the visit, I went to my uncle’s house. As we were talking, the sensations were back. When he asked me “How are you feeling?”, I replied “I am okay!” despite the discomfort. The sensations were overwhelming but my face did not reveal it as I had by now made up my mind that there are certain things in life that we have to face individually.

Soon as we returned home, I left for the Mylapore Kapaleeswar temple with my father. This temple premises also has a shrine for Murugan. The few minutes that I sat in the inner premises of the Murugan Shrine, I did not experience any pain or discomfort!! No sensations whatsoever!! I was feeling normal. But that did not last long. Once I left the shrine, things were the same again. We returned to Bangalore and I continued my routine and some assuring signs were constantly coming through.

Around this time, there was a Shirdi Baba temple inauguration at Sriperambudur by Mohanji which my parents and sister went for. This was also the time, we were asking my parents to move to Bangalore along with Radha and they had finally decided to make the move. When my mother met Mohanji at the temple, she sought his blessings and said “Mohanji, we are moving to Bangalore shortly”.  He responded enthusiastically “I am also coming there!”

Parents
My parents with Mohanji

I still did not know who Mohanji was but as my father was connected to him, out of curiosity, I had started reading the Atmananda blogs online. After my parents moved to Bangalore, I got the opportunity to visit him at the Boulevard Retreat for the first time in March, 2018.

When I went to his house and got the opportunity to speak to him, I said to him:

“I connect to you through the Atmananda blogs, but I haven’t taken your permission.”

His answer was succinct.

“It is like Prana (vital breath). Do you take permission to take Prana?”

The second time I got to meet him was on my father’s birthday in April that year. My father told me “I have prayed for you at Tiruchendur. We don’t have to trouble Mohanji about it!” I didn’t bring up the topic as discussed with him but at one point when there was a pause in the discussions, my mother prodded me from the back to share it with Mohanji.

Mohanji looked in my direction and asked “What?”

I started, “I experience rain drop sensation.”

He told me something that I had been waiting to hear for a long time.

“It is a good thing!”

The word, “good” brought so much mental relief.

“It is Ma Kundalini. Welcome her. Accept her!”, he continued and then added “You know Ida Pingala? (he knew that I knew all that!) It is like Alakananda and Bagirathi coming together.”

I replied, “The heating is too much!”

“Do Suryanamaskar and vertical breathing. Reduce your medicines!”

I knelt to take his blessings. He placed his thumb on my forehead and blessed me. (Now I know that I received Shaktipat but didn’t then).

With folded hands and connecting to my family deity, I received it. On our return, my anxious mother asked me if I felt something. I said, “Nothing!”

However, the next morning as I woke up and got out from the bed I felt the difference!! That strange pull that had been my unseen companion for the previous 10 months was gone! Every step I took, I felt the difference.  I conveyed this to my doctor that very day! I started to reduce the dosage and the heating also considerably reduced, and I finally stopped medicines completely in October. Life has flown by and now I only have “filtered” sensations once in a while.

 

With the blessings of Mohanji, I have been able to take up the Acharya training too which is another fascinating story for next time, on how Grace carries us forward!

Today, on my birthday when I think of why I drew the feet that day when I started having the sensations, I am sure I know the answer….

The truth of His presence without presence

one with god

On this auspicious day of Guru Poornima, Mahesh shares with us a beautiful experience which yet again confirmed Mohanji’s presence in the Datta Tapovan ashram in Canada, although He was physically thousands of miles away.

 

The truth of His presence without presence

By Mahesh Bhalerao, Canada

The Datta Tapovan ashram was glowing. Mohanji was coming!  We were filled with so much joy. We did have our share of nervousness, but that nervousness was good, trying to keep everything perfect and in order for Mohanji’s arrival.

Tapovan Canada

Before Mohanji came, so many divine beings were making their presence felt too. One such unforgettable incident was when we felt Kamadhenu’s presence, though at that point we mistook it for cow dung smell!

Well, finally Mohanji came. We felt as if the brightness and warmth of the sun were appearing after a long, cold and dark, winter night. Yes, Mohanji filled whole the ashram with uncontainable and unlimited joy. Divine love flourished in every heart. 15 magical days filled with divinity. The sun rose, the sun set. But we remained awake in Mohanji’s Consciousness, in His love, 24/7.

Mahesh

Then the dreadful day came. It was time for Mohanji to go back. Other devotees in other parts of the world were waiting, His mission continues, the Avadhoota’s journey continues.

But how can my heart understand?  Greedy? Sadly, Yes. The heart didn’t want to bear the separation. The Master of my heart, Mohanji knew everything. Nothing is hidden from Him. He hears the cry coming out of each heart-beat.

He told me,

“Bhalerao, when I leave from here, don’t think that I am gone. Only my body will be gone. I will be here in the ashram, always.”

He left. I kept holding on to my faith, Mohanji is here, sitting on this chair, walking in this room, sleeping on this bed. I felt Mohanji continuing to be here with us.

Mohanji in Canada

Every morning and evening I kept doing the aarati, cleaning His room, making His bed, exactly how I used to do when He was here physically. That day, I continued the evening ritual.

 

 

In the evening when I went to the laundry room to do some laundry, suddenly I could smell the strong fragrance of Mohanji’s perfume. It has been more than a week since Mohanji had left; none of His clothes was in the laundry. In a room which normally smells of washing powder or bleach, getting the strong perfume smell of Mohanji was a clear indication that Mohanji was here, right next to me.

Then later, after finishing Sai Baba’s aarati, I went upstairs to Mohanji’s room, lit the lamp, made His bed and did pranaam at the chair where He used to sit while staying at the ashram, exactly how I used to do earlier.

Just when I touched my head on the floor, Mohanji appeared! Yes, Mohanji appeared. I could clearly see Him, wearing His blue tank top and orange dhoti, sitting on the chair and smiling at me.

I burst out crying like a child. I cried and cried. I was crying not because I was missing Him. I was crying because He was proving to silly me that He was still here, very much here, even though physically He was thousands of miles away.

One thing is for sure, whatever Mohanji says, He always keeps His promises. He told me that He will be here in the ashram, and He proved this to me not just once but many times. And not just to me, even to others. You have already read Sanjay bhai’s story of how he saw Mohanji’s foot impression on the feet cushion.

positivity

His leelas are incomprehensible, unimaginable but magical. His love is truly unconditional and His compassion is beyond this world. How can I express my gratitude to you Mohanji, for your love? I can only bow my head down with complete surrender and remain at your feet always and forever.

The art of seeing rainbows at night

By Urav and Sandra Sankar

It’s like being aboard a rocket cruiser named ‘Master of the Universe’, where having no expectations is the only thing that’s going to take you to warp speed and inter-dimensional travel.

In meditation, we are able to leave this so-called reality and race into the so-called unknown. In dance, we lose our mind amidst cosmic spirals of ecstatic bliss. In walking, we connect to the integral nature of the Self, to the heartbeat of Shakti Maa. We are blessed with so many gifts to gather on this bountiful path of liberation, making life lighter, brighter and happier.

In this world, the big thing is ‘fearlessness’. A picture of a typical Amazon Warrior pops into my head. No. That’s too limiting. Let’s just say that this feels more like being a fearless Warrior of Love and Light. In this beautiful life, that Light is Mohanji. Check that. The darkness is all Mohanji too. In the absence of duality, we find Mohanji. Everything is Mohanji.

So, there is nothing to be scared of, right? Our beloved Parabrahma says ‘I am with you. Keep walking.’ Yes, we also run, jump, swoop, dive and leap with carefree abandon. In doing so we acclimatise to fateful and fearless truths that awareness brings to the table. We begin to flow through the tests and curves that life deals out.

This is all our beloved Mohanji’s grace. Nothing can stop karma. Only beloved Mohanji’s grace can. Contemplate on the waves of karmic providence that created the circumstances that brought us here. To this point. This timeline. To exactly this time-space continuum. Frankly, this feels very much like surfing. Low waves, high waves, sometimes outright tsunamis!

No worry when our beloved Mohanji is here. The great sobering lesson that grows on you is complete humility. Every breath becomes thank you, thank you, thank you, beloved Mohanji. Humbled gratitude to You for all the ‘saves’ not just in this life but all lives.

Guru’s light is like an exquisite prism of conscious revelation. Such is the grace of a timely breath swooping ‘reveal’ of the Absolute by Mother Divine. Our Mohanji’s canvas of innumerable colours illuminates every facet of our lives.

A few nights ago, our young son saw the beautiful outline of a form draped in hues of different rays of light, standing next to his bed. The colours that dominated the spectrum were red, yellow and blue. The astral form of our beloved Parabrahma also had three dark stripes of red, yellow and blue across the forehead and both feet.

This was part of the long-distance Mai-Tri Method healing. The healer was in a different timeline in another part of the world. What an exquisite truth! Consciousness has no distance. Call Mohanji. He comes. Think of Mohanji. He is there! Always present!

Think of our mind like a switch that goes off and on. When we switch off our mind, we experience the glory of Mohanji in 360 degrees. Children do that naturally. A few days later, our son caught sight of a rainbow and said that was exactly what he saw that night.

Unity in Oneness

By Dragana Tešanović

bosnian pyramids
A view of the Bosnian Pyramids

During the last several days of the program on the Bosnian Pyramids in 2019, I was feeling quite confused. Everything was so overwhelming for me as it seemed that there were so many people with whom I did not interact. Until now I did not understand that Mohanji brings all of His people (by saying His people, I mean people who are connected to His consciousness) with Him no matter where and how distant they are physically. As I realized this, I remembered several other occasions when He was on some pilgrimage and I had a feeling that I was there with Him.

I want to share one such experience. I have to start from the very beginning as His ways are very mysterious. It was the year 2018. In January I had to pass my academic writing exam. There were several themes to write about. I chose to write about a theme with the title, ‘What would I change if I had a time machine?’ Naturally, I wrote that I am proud of everything that happened in my past and if it did not happen, I would not be here now. I also wrote that if I had a time machine, I would like to return to my mother`s womb, because that is the only place where I would feel secure and carefree. This is because I do not feel as secure now as I should be. The only thing I know is that I wrote the essay from the bottom of my heart without any expectations.

virgin mary
Virgin Mary – Ukraine

Two months later, I received the call to go and visit the greatest sanctuary dedicated to the Virgin Mary (Shakti manifestation) in Ukraine, which was very affordable for me at that time. At the very same time, Mohanji was on a pilgrimage to Machu Picchu (Shakti place). What makes this place in Ukraine so powerful is the spring from which water started flowing when Mother Mary descended from the heights and touched the stone with her feet.

Besides this, the most interesting thing is that there is a cave in which a saint called Jov spent 20-30 years in silence, and guess what – the cave is in the shape of a womb, and it can hold only up to 4 people at one time. It is a place which the orthodox Christians usurped as their own. In this cave, I witnessed that beyond duality there is only oneness. So the trip was heavy.

There was only one person who knew me on the bus, and after several hours I started feeling the pressure of odd looks that I received. I was looked upon strangely as I did yoga, meditated, so on and so forth. Some of them approached me with the speech that these things I was doing were not good…blah, blah. So my mind started receiving the info about how my path was wrong. It was not easy for me to stay firm and stable around 60 other souls looking upon me like a possessed person, hahaha.

Mohanji

I just held Mohanji`s hand and was calling out to Him during the entire trip. I said to myself, “Ok, this is just one of His leelas. I know that this path is my life and I will wait for the confirmation as a witness.”

I visited a few other places of high energy before I entered the cave on the last day. People shared some stories that the cave would let you in and out if you are not possessed or something like that, and it won’t let you go out if you have great sins. Terrifying stories. I have to be honest, for a moment I was a bit frightened.

What happened next was mind-blowing! Even though there was a queue in front of the cave, when it was my turn to enter, I somehow ended up alone there. So there was only one thought with which I entered the cave, but I received much more. The thought was, “Please, let this path be the one for me.”

After several seconds, Saint Jov, whose presence one can tangibly feel inside this cave, became one with Mohanji and showed me that separation only exists within the mind. To my surprise, my awareness also lifted beyond the dual mind and I felt like I was one with them. I felt everything around me was part of me at that moment. Then I realized that my every heartbeat radiates a certain vibration, and if my heart radiates purity, the same thing will show outside (as within, so without) and vice versa. That realization gave me the strength to follow my path, the path of pathlessness. The path of unconditional love, non-violence, kindness, compassion, goodness, and companionship.

I am so grateful to Mohanji, without whom all of this would be impossible to realize. Before Mohanji, every breath of mine was a struggle. Now He empowers me to live my life purposefully and adds more meaning to it. And yes, when He says that He is with us, He really is. The only difference is in the mind. We think from the mind that the connection is lost. But Mohanji dwells within our hearts.

Thank you Mohanji. I surrender everything to you. I love you, through each and everyone as per my capacity.

JAI MOHANJI!

Transformation by divine guidance

By Reena Kumar

Mohanji_on_Positivity

Salutations to my Guru, who is an infinite ocean of compassion, grace, and bliss. Mohanji showers His grace 24×7 on everyone, everywhere. Mohanji has transformed us completely by His grace. Now, all the concepts, fears and stresses have vanished. He has taught me to flow through life and accept the person and situation as it is without complaining.

Earlier I wrote about how my son got decent marks in his 10th standard examination, in spite of having an accident. Even after the 10th standard, his attitude towards studies was casual. His present school knew about his carelessness. So the school didn’t want to give him admission to the 11th standard. But again, a miracle took place. By Mohanji’s grace, they agreed to give him admission. At the Parent-Teacher meetings, I was told again and again about the conduct of my son towards studies because he never completed his homework on time and he used to delay submitting his projects too. Annoyed by his pattern of indifference and carelessness, we scolded him and told him to be diligent and sincere.

That night, Mohanji appeared in his teacher’s dream. She has never met Mohanji. She told me how Mohanji came in a white kurta-pyjama and instructed her to take special care of my son. It was an early morning dream. We were left speechless by this dream. Our Mohanji deeply cares for each one of us around the clock.

We were getting complaints from the school regarding my son constantly. Every day we used to sit and explain to him. He got very few marks in his class test. Yet another night, we got so frustrated, we shouted at him. And later we started crying as there was no improvement in his class test score.

That night, Freedom meditation was published. We strongly felt it as a gift from Mohanji for children and their parents who were going through the same situation us. We hoped our son would benefit from it too. Mohanji is our ‘Sankat Mochan’ (name of Lord Hanumanji). Whenever we are gloomy, Mohanji reaches out to us either through a dream or in the form of a message. But the whole year passed and my son couldn’t clear his 11th standard.

In the report card of the 11th Standard (grade), it was written that he will be retained in the same class. I requested the Principal to give him a retest to help him clear the exams. Even after the retest, he was short of a few marks. Through Mohanji’s leela, from being retained in the same class, the report card was now changed to retest.

We went to many schools seeking admission, but no school was ready to take him. Again, I requested the Principal to write in the transfer certificate that my son should be promoted to the 12th class. The Principal agreed but it was suggested that retests should be conducted by the new school. We went to 14 schools, but they all said that the old school should do the retest. Now we were exhausted. The new session of the 12th class had already started since March and now it was the month of May. My son was not able to get admission and he was lagging behind by two months. Construction work was just completed at my place and this long search for admission into a school left us totally drained out.

My son was longing to meet Mohanji. It so happened that Mohanji was there at Dr. Wasir’s place. It was a golden opportunity for us and I thanked Dr. Wasir for contacting us. Mohanji said, “Your son was missing me badly. So I gave this thought to Doctor, to call you.” Mohanji is our Vighnaharta, another name for Lord Ganesha who removes obstacles. Our Avadhoota said, “10th was good and 12th will be good.” This sentence of Mohanji helped us sail smoothly in the middle of this turmoil. 

Deep inside my heart, I had firm faith that my son will get admission into the 12th standard, sooner or later. After hopping from one school to the other, my son was still not able to get admission anywhere. So someone suggested to him, “Why don’t you repeat your 11th standard?”  But the boy was adamant on not repeating. To save his one year, we thought of changing the board (of studies to which a school is affiliated). My son was in a school that followed the Haryana state board pattern. We thought of shifting him from Haryana to some other state, or from CBSE to Haryana Board, or from science stream to Arts, but all in vain.

At last, by the divine leela of Mohanji, he got admission in a school which was hardly three kilometers from our house. My son’s attitude changed. He became sincere and polite. Mohanji has transformed my son totally. He’s a new person, always positive in all the aspects.

Mohanji_on_self correction

Let any situation happen in your life no matter what people say. Whatever blockages are there, our Mohanji will remove them. Follow hundred percent whatever He tells us. He knows us better than we know ourselves. Never let the monkey mind come in between you and your Guru. Destiny brings the Master and the mind takes him/her away. Keep your Guru firmly in your heart. We are not the doer. Surrender at the lotus feet of Mohanji. He will deliver at the right time, at the right place. Gratitude is a very small word to describe the divine leela and grace of Mohanji.

We are in His divine protection always. May my family and I be at the lotus feet of our Mohanji till our last breath. Infinite gratitude every second to our Mohanji for blessing, awakening, guiding and transforming us! Koti koti pranaams Mohanji!

Jai Jai Mohanji!

A blessing for Guru Purnima

By Sonia Gandhi, Australia

It was early morning, around 5:00 am, on the 1st of July 2019. I was transported in a dream state to a place with rural settings. It looked similar to the locations on the way to Mt. Kailash.

I was in a small shelter with many others. I saw Mohanji there and He was getting ready to leave. So, along with the others, I stood near the door to see Him off.

A few people were talking with Him, asking for some help, to which He lovingly said as always,

“It will be taken care of.”

He wore His shoes and was about to go; I was keen to touch His feet and get His blessings. As I bent down to touch His feet, He took His shoes off for me. My heart melted in His love and with trembling hands, I bowed down to touch His feet.

mohanji-in-the-alps

Then I heard my voice coming from the deepest core of my being. It was from the soul level and not from the mind, body, or intellect. It was one of the very few times when I knew it was my highest self talking. My voice said: “I deeply, completely, surrender at your lotus feet Mohanji, with utmost humility and gratitude, with everything I ever was and I ever will be.”

And behold! All of a sudden, His feet turned into light, a light that was brighter than the brightest light! I could not see my hands touching His feet anymore, although I felt completely drenched in that snowy, white light. Slowly with complete oneness, I saw Sai Baba emerging out of that light in the form of light itself, and I could see him. The form of Sai Baba then turned into the form of Shiva, absolutely stunning in white light and finally changed into Shree Anjaneya. All of them appeared to have emerged from the white light and merged back into it.

I woke up from this dream state with a heart full of love and my eyes full of tears. I felt this was Mohanji’s gift to me, at the start of this auspicious month of Guru Purnima. The day of the Guru Purnima has always been the most special day of my life for the past 12 years.

It is said that Masters are extremely active and very close to the earth, during the 15 days before and after Guru Purnima. It is a very special time to connect to the Source and with one’s higher self.

The bliss that this dream or astral vision has given me is not comparable. I can feel the heat of the energy expanding within me every day since then.

Is there an end to His love? No, there isn’t. My little mind is not capable of understanding what He is, but my heart just melts with His presence in my life. Gratitude and only gratitude.

The Guru who liberates!

Mohanji on liberation

By Devadas, Palakkad, Kerala

 

Lord Shiva has said to Devi Parvati in Guru Gita (Shloka # 169),

Maata dhanyaa pitaa dhanyo, dhanyo vamsah kulam tathaa,
Dhanyaa ca Vasudhaa Devi, Gurubhaktih sudurlabhaa.

which means,

Blessed is the mother (of a devoted disciple), blessed is the father, and blessed is the family and ancestry. O Goddess, (such) devotion to Guru is very rare.

When we connect to the Guru, not just we but our families, our lineage, forefathers and even future generations also come under the protection of the Guru.

I recently experienced this eternal truth through a bitter situation in my life. This is a very personal matter and in a normal scenario, I wouldn’t have openly discussed it. However, when I realised how my Guru Mohanji’s protection has worked, I felt it’s no longer a personal matter to keep it to myself. I felt I must share with the world how powerful the connection with our Master can be.

My only brother, in his mid-50s, recently took a drastic action of committing suicide leaving his young family behind. In our entire family or even known relatives, we have never had such an incident. We belong to a religious and ritualistic Hindu Brahmin family and are aware of how a soul goes through immense pain and stays bound when a person commits suicide. In the last many years, our whole family has been going through immense pain and incidents of drastic nature have been happening. Every such incident seems to bring our whole lineage down.

Although a ritualistic Hindu by birth, after marriage my brother converted to a different religion. Going through many ups and down in his life, something made him take such a drastic step. With this incident, I was really worried about the pain that his soul would go through. I cried out to my Guru Mohanji.

Anytime, during any trouble, my heart first cries out to Mohanji. He has been protecting not only me but my entire family too. During this particular time, Guru Mohanji was not in India.

suffering

In this condition, Anitha, my wife’s sister who is also a Mai-Tri practitioner, offered to give me a Mai-Tri session. The Mai-Tri session was immensely powerful. It was as if Mohanji Himself came and gave me a message.

Anitha had a clear vision of Mohanji and Kailash during the session and saw very vividly how Mohanji was protecting me. She also received a message that I must speak to Devi Amma.

After the Mai-Tri session, when she conveyed this to me, I was speechless. I understood that this was a direct command from Mohanji. I must tell you that Mohanji loves and respects Devi Amma a lot. Devi Amma considers Mohanji as her spiritual brother.

Hence without further delay, I called up Devi Amma in Bangalore and narrated my brother’s incident to her. Devi Amma assured me that she will ask ‘Appa’ (Rishi Agastya) and let me know. A couple of days later, Devi Amma conveyed an important message. This message left me awestruck. She conveyed that Rishi Agastya sent her a clear message that my brother’s soul has crossed over to the other side very smoothly. He had conveyed that this was only possible because of a connection to a higher Master.

Devi Amma explained to me then in simple terms that my connection with Mohanji has ensured the grace and protection of the Guru for my family and relatives, including my brother. This is why even though the soul had left through a drastic step such as suicide, instead of wandering and suffering, my Guru had enabled the soul to cross the boundaries and set it free from its bindings.

Mohanji connection

These words may seem unbelievable, but I had no doubt about this truth as these were authenticated by a living Master like Devi Amma! She revealed this truth about the power of this wonderful connection to my Guru and how this connection can pull the whole lineage out of any ditch!

Then I was reminded of another important incident. This was regarding my father. Though he was a born Hindu Brahmin, he was an atheist and he did not understand the Guru Tatwa (Guru Principle). My father sold the land which had a century old “Naga temple” to a non-Hindu person who demolished it. I was worried about this mishap and the repercussions this incident could bring to our whole family. I had not met Mohanji at that time. Maybe it was the Guru Mandala’s grace that was working; I was inspired to build a Naga temple in one of my lands. This was my way of penance for the mistake that my father did. Those were the days that my wife and I were desperately praying for Lord Krishna to come to our family as a child! Well, Krishna didn’t come as a child, but he came in the form of “Mohanji.” My Guru appeared in my life. After Mohanji accepted me and blessed me, He also blessed my whole family and lineage.

It was very evident that during the last breath of my father, Mohanji had ensured a very smooth, literally pain-free exit for him. Even though my father was not a follower of Mohanji and was unaware of the protection that he was receiving from my Guru, he had a very smooth exit.

My brother’s case was yet another proof of the Master’s protection for the entire family and lineage. Not only this. When Mohanji returned to India, one day at His Bangalore home, during a discussion with other devotees on this incident, He said,

“I am looking after Devadas very dearly. He and his family have been suffering for lifetimes. This lifetime, I will ensure that suffering is not repeated anymore. He and the entire lineage are being taken care of.”

My friend and Mohanji Acharya Kishore conveyed this message to me. I had no words to express my gratitude to my Guru Mohanji. My tears knew no boundaries. I am so thankful to the Tradition for allowing me to meet my eternal Master Mohanji in this lifetime and guiding me towards liberation.

Thank you Mohanji. Koti koti pranaams at your feet.

With my heart full of devotion, I offer the following poem at my Guru’s feet.

Guru Mohana nayanam sharanam
Guru Mohana Vadanam sharanam
Guru Mohana Charanam sharanam
Bhava saagara taranam. ||1||

Guru Mohana hasitam sharanam
Guru Mohana vachanam sharanam
Guru Mohana vasanam sharanam
Bhava saagara taranam. ||2||

Guru Mohana rupam sharanam
Guru Mohana mantram sharanam
Guru Mohana mananam sharanam
Bhava saagara taranam. ||3||

Guru Mohana dhyanam sharanam
Guru Mohana bodham sharanam
Guru Mohana darshan sukrutat
Mama pooritha layanam
Parapooritha layanam ||4||

Here is a link to the beautiful way our dear Mohanji Acharya Sathya converted this poem into a beautiful song.

The divine guards

Mohanji on energy

By Nameshri Chetty

Mohanji always says, “If you have eyes to see then you start to see the grace of the Tradition at play everywhere.”

Mohanji pic 2
The eternal Guru

Mohanji had given me a list of energy centers while I was in India recently (let me tell you the list was power packed, to say the least). At the top of the list and one main energy center was Tirupati.

Mohanji pic 3

Let me just say I was totally oblivious to the magnitude of this experience: be it the magnitude of the place or the grace of it. This place was the first on my list to visit. I was safely helped by Preeti D, Devadas, Kamath, and Madhu who arranged for my comfortable journey there. (I would like to mention that throughout my stay, they have made sure that I was always safe and happy no matter what).

 

I left Bangalore around 1:00 am alone with a driver (I was a bit nervous but Preeti D had sorted this out, so I was okay). Before I left Bangalore, I placed an eye card on the dashboard. As we headed towards Tirupati, I was not aware that Tirupati was another world on its own. Nobody had mentioned anything about it. I was under the impression that it would be a quick in and out darshan, as Madhu had arranged V.I.P darshan for me. I reached around 11:00 am that day only to be gobsmacked by the magnitude of the place and the people.

The driver called Madhu, who advised him where to take me to get my V.I.P spot. Here is where I started thinking, “Oh my hat! I am all alone here and there are huge groups, families and so on,” but I just followed. The driver led me to the entrance of the gates and asked me to just follow the queue. He promised to see me at the end. This was around 12:30 pm. I left my stuff at the counters and approached the ticket verification gates.

In front of me were three men. They befriended me so kindly and enquired about where I was from and just general questions. They proceeded to ask me to join them as they had special darshan tickets. So I agreed as I had no clue about what was to happen inside. These three men from Chennai in their dhotis decided to be my guides and protectors on this passageway to Balaji. They literally stretched their arms out so I was not pushed, and they held my hand guiding me through special queues so I did not get lost.

During this time, all I thought of was that Datta had sent 3 of his guards to be with me so that I was not alone. There was no other explanation as to why three men from Chennai would take a lady from South Africa and make her their responsibility in a bustling and busy place.

As we went through the double doors, they ushered me to a special line. This was not just V.I.P. but V.V.I.P where we could spend more than a minute in front of Balaji, where we could literally touch the umbrella that protected him when he was carried out. At that moment something told me to place Mohanji’s eye card on the dakshina box/plate which I did (I decided at that moment I would place His eye card wherever I could during my travels). I had no idea of what was happening, as I was just going with the flow. After the darshan, they took me to a place where they got us some ladoos. These ladoos were mainly for the priests (which I was totally unaware of). This was when I asked the three men if they knew about Lord Dattatreya. They said yes, and they escorted me to the point where I could collect my belongings and left.

Lord Dattatreya

This was around 2:00 pm and the entire exercise seemed effortless. On my way back, on rewind mode, I realised what had happened and I saw how Mohanji had sent the three men with me and for me. On sharing this with Mohanji and the others (not that He did not know), He confirmed that it was true. He mentioned that His people are always there to take care. This was the start of a sequence of undeniable blessings that Mohanji had in store for me as I went down my list, visiting energy centers.

Mere Mahadev, I surrender graciously and humbly at your feet as you are the beginning and end of all that is and is not

I glide on the breath of Your grace!

The Power Of Blessings

Radha Sreenivas did exactly what Mohanji says in the above quote. With Mohanji’s blessings, she surrendered her thoughts and fears created by the mind to the Guru and immediately felt free.

Om Parabrahmaya Vidmahe

Shiva Tattvaya Dheemahi

Tanno Mohan Prachodayath

I invoke the grace of Guruji (Mohanji) for penning this experience as it has enhanced my faith in Him completely. He is my Father, with whom I can share everything.  He holds me as His child, protecting me, blessing me and standing by me. I offer this sharing at your feet, my Guru Mohanji!

It has been a long cherished dream of my husband to build a Shirdi Sai temple.  He soon located a land for the construction in a remote village. I was initially very hesitant as it was far away from Chennai (where I live) and I felt that I could not live in a village lacking modern facilities. My husband explained that he had a dream of Akkalkot Maharaj in that place.  I immediately agreed and all of us gave our 100% to make this dream a reality. Soon, 22nd of August 2018 was fixed as the date for Bhoomi puja or earth sanctifying ceremony.

The Power Of Blessings_Sai Temple

In the meantime, in July, we received news that my son (aged 23 years) who was working in Bangalore had been hospitalised and he was in the ICU with blood in his sputum. We did not panic as he had a history of cystic bronchiectasis from childhood but proceeded to Bangalore.  When we entered the hospital, we found my son happily eating food from outside, amidst so many other critically ill patients. On enquiring with the doctor, he told us that he was admitted in the ICU as a precautionary measure since there were chances he could vomit blood again. Thankfully, nothing happened and my son was discharged after two days of hospitalisation.

On our return to Chennai, we happened to consult an astrologer about my son’s health condition because in all these years he had never been hospitalised as our family physician had assured us that it was a congenital condition. After getting the details of his birth date and time, the astrologer got back to us saying that the situation was very grave and totally out of hand. He recommended some pariharam – quick fix solutions to thwart the ill-effects of the planetary positions. This led to a panic attack within me. I was distraught and prayed to Shirdi Sai to save my son’s life.  I blacked out in a state of panic and grief engulfed me at the supposed calamity. I had thoughts of suicide and went into a state of depression. I prayed that my life should be taken away instead. I spent the whole night in a state of fear and became hysterical, weeping continuously.

The Power Of Blessings_Radha and son

However, the same astrologer called up the next day and assured us that he had placed the ‘prasnam’ (issue) again before God and realised that there was no threatening condition to my son’s health.  To gain more clarity, we consulted one more astrologer who assured us of the longevity of my son’s life and that there was no cause for concern. It was only a minor health condition.

Amidst all these, the Bhoomi puja of the temple was conducted as planned. We went again to Bangalore for the health check-up of my son. The same doctor, whom we saw in the ICU before, refused to look at his past medical records which I held in my hand and started speculating on the reasons for his health condition without doing any tests.  He categorically stated that it could be any major health problem. He also added that various tests could be done afresh and to await results hoping for the best. His attitude was one of diagnosing a health condition for the first time. Had he compared the old records with what he had taken in the ICU, he would have understood that it was a congenital problem and not alarming in any way. He could have saved us the ordeal and trauma that we underwent. My son was taken aback by his negative approach. When he came out he just asked me why he should go, when he was just 23 years old! This question from him completely broke me! I was mentally shattered. It is not a question a mother would like to hear from her son. Fear gripped me although I assured him that nothing was wrong with him and that he would be alright.

We took all his reports to our family physician in Chennai who assured us that he had no progressive affliction and there was no danger to his life. Two of the bronchioles in the lungs had lost their elasticity. This was definitely not life threatening as the condition had not deteriorated and they remained the same as they had since my son’s childhood.

But the hospitalisation, astrologer’s prediction and the Bangalore doctor’s negative assessment took a heavy toll on my emotional health and I started getting nightmares. I earnestly prayed to Shirdi Sai for a solution by showing someone who could take away my fears with an assurance about my son’s health.

Around this time in Oct 2018, my husband went for the Consciousness Kriya programme in Bangalore. He was worried about leaving me in this condition and arranged for people to be with me. Although I did not give it much thought, I asked my husband to talk to Mohanji about my son. Mohanji blessed him with an ‘Eye Card’ and advised my husband to give udi (holy ash) mixed in water to my son.

On his return, he took me to Kishore’s house (regular POP meditations were conducted here) on Diwali for an introduction as I continued to be restless, worried and living in fear. The following week, I attended a POP meditation at their house for the first time. It was then that Revathi told me that I could message Mohanji in case I had some pressing need. She also shared many experiences which gave me the confidence that I could approach Mohanji.

The same night, at 8.35pm on 15th Nov 2018, I messaged Mohanji about my negative thoughts and lack of peace.  Lo and behold, at 11.42pm, I received the message, ‘Blessings, blessings‘ from Mohanji. Immediately, just by reading the words, great calm and peace of mind enveloped me. From that moment on, my mind released its fear; negative thoughts just disappeared and I slept well. The words ‘Blessings, blessings’ had so much power… Mohanji had understood my situation and He had sent healing through the words and cured me. I realised this very soon. We are all His children and His grace protects each one of us.

Since then, I have attended all activities and POP meditation sessions in Chennai and find great solace and security in Mohanji’s love. My Mohanji family brother and sisters, Kishore, Revathy and Rekha Murali have always been very loving and supportive. After reading Mohanji’s posts and quotes on FB, I am very touched and have completely surrendered all my activities to Him.

With this surrender, an ardent desire arose in my mind to see Mohanji in person and to take His blessings. We came to know that Mohanji would be attending and addressing a public satsang in Thrissur on 27th Dec, 2018 and we immediately made plans for the journey.

The Thrissur meeting with Mohanji is one of the most cherished moments of my life. I was super excited to meet Him. After the satsang, I was so excited that I quickly climbed the stage in eagerness to seek His blessings much to the chagrin of my husband. But then Mohanji lovingly smiled and took a sweet I offered (I’d prepared the sweet at home and had taken it with me) from the box and promised to eat it. He also assured me most lovingly that He will look after my son. I could feel pure love and selflessness emanating from Him. Soon, I got another chance to get close to Mohanji on stage. My husband and I seized this opportunity to invite Him for the proposed Kumbhabhishekam  (consecration ceremony to homogenise, synergise and unite the mystic powers of the deity in a temple) at our Shirdi Sai temple and He most lovingly promised to come. My heart just overflowed with happiness.

As Mohanji held my hand, I conveyed my deepest wish to Him; it is my greatest wish that my entire family (my son included) should be with Him as His devotees. He said, “It will happen.”

All that I require is patience and I am 100% confident that this will happen, now that my Guru is with me. He has also assured me, “I will take care of him.” I don’t need anything else.

My heart overflows with love and gratitude as my Guru Mohanji is always with me!
