Being fearless

mohanji1

By Shyama Jeyaseelan, UK

It is the second week of May. The UK is finally seeing a decline in the spreading of the Covid-19 virus. Lockdown measures are slightly relaxed, although restrictions for travel, school, shopping, socialising and for the elderly, as in many other areas still continue. After the loss of thousands of lives and devastation to so many families, we are hoping that life will return to relative normalcy soon.

The UK is one of the countries to be severely affected during the pandemic. During the peak time in April, nearly a thousand lives were being lost every day. Fighting this invisible force was a huge challenge for the country as it was for the rest of the world.

During this time, we all faced many other challenges too. Many people lost their livelihood. No jobs meant little or no income to support our families. While many people were asked to work from home, front line workers had to continue to go to work, potentially risking their lives daily. The National Health Service (NHS) was struggling to support its staff with adequate personal protective equipment (PPE). Many NHS staff members fell ill, and sadly many lives were also lost.

Despite all these challenges, the human spirit survived. We saw so many charities and organisations coming forward to support and help the NHS, to help the elderly and the vulnerable, to support those people who had lost their jobs. Mohanji ACT Foundation team also came forward to help wherever possible with many acts of kindness.

With generous donations from the Mohanji UK family, food donations were made to local NHS hospitals to help the staff. This meant that many of them did not need to face a long shopping queue at the end of a long and stressful working day. Food donations were made to food-banks where those without jobs come and receive supplies to help them with their daily essentials.

While work places brought many changes to most people, as an NHS worker, my work continued as normal. It also meant that social distancing was not possible, I had to make physical contact with patients as before. There was no PPE for regular ultrasound scan sessions, only when coming in contact with confirmed Covid-19 patients. During the first few weeks we did not even have masks to wear.

ACT4

We have all learnt that life will always bring challenges, some harder than others, but when Guru’s grace and protection is present, we are immune to the shocks of daily life. This is something I have seen in so many ways within this short time.

 During our Acharya training, I remember Mohanji saying many times,

“The Tradition is with you. Be fearless. Be compassionate and loving. Serve the society.” 

This reassurance and guidance was definitely in need at this time of crisis. With Mohanji’s grace, there was no fear of the disease in me, whether it was at work or during service activities. Any of my patients could be carriers of the virus or might be in the incubation period of developing the illness. Never once did Mohanji allow a drop of fear to come in my thoughts. When people ask if it’s stressful going to work, the answer was a truthful, and cheerful, “No, I’m ok.” Fear, worry or anxiety would have definitely reduced my immune system and made be vulnerable to falling ill, and Mohanji made sure I felt stable within. It was also really nice to share that stability and positive attitude with my colleagues; it helped us all to have a relatively normal work environment.

fear

All the Acharyas and other Mohanji Foundation volunteers were doing online programmes as inspired by Mohanji. My resistance to learning to use new technology, fear of facing a live camera, and all other feelings of insecurities melted away as we all realised the importance of doing these online activities. Reaching out to as many people as possible with love and bringing positivity at a time when so many people were facing various fears was paramount.

Amongst the various programmes, we were also chanting the Gayatri mantra and the Maha Mrithyunjaya mantra every day intending to bring love, light and positive energy to Mother Earth and all her beings. This was benefitting us immensely too. The energy and the vibrations of the chanting were definitely energising and rejuvenating, increasing our immunity. When I received unusually high numbers of requests for distant Mai-Tri sessions, I realised the amount of healing Mohanji was giving me also. How beautifully he takes care of us, whether we realise it or not.

Many of the ACT volunteers were not able to physically help with the food donations due to various reasons. This meant that I was able to help often, and it was truly a privilege to have the opportunity to help the NHS staff, the Covid hub staff and the homeless shelters by distributing essential food supplies. It was a heart touching moment to see the happy faces of the doctors when a volunteer took ice-cream bars to a local accident and emergency department. Mohanji has given us this amazing platform, to help and make a difference in our local communities, to make a positive contribution and it’s truly wonderful to be a part of it.

fearless quote 2

Mohanji has said this period in confinement is a time for contemplation and reflection. Nature has given us time to slow down and to reassess what is truly important in our lives. It has been a time for me to appreciate my time with the family. With universities and schools closed, my children are home and it’s wonderful to be together, to tease them, to laugh and enjoy their company. It’s great to play with our cats in the garden. We have been blessed with warm weather on most days and it has given me the time to sit in the garden and enjoy nature, to connect with the elements. This is something I have not done in years.

Social media has brought the global family to our homes. Friends and relatives, whom I have not spoken to or made contact with in many months, have been in touch. It has been a time to reconnect and to ensure the well-being of our dear ones. Even my parents who are in their 80s face time us to see the cats!

 I’m truly grateful for the many moments of grace that has been possible only because of Mohanji. Thank you Mohanji for your presence in our lives, and for giving us the guidance and the platforms to serve the society with love, compassion, and kindness. Thank you for inspiring us with your words and actions to serve selflessly and fearlessly.

TRUTH AS IT IS

By Subhasree, London

During the coronavirus pandemic, inspired by Mohanji’s call for action, the UK family also came together and started doing online programmes from morning till night. We have had sessions of chanting starting from 6 am to sessions of book reading, meditations, online Mai-Tri, special devotional songs etc.

During these sessions, Mohanji’s presence is often felt by the person who is conducting, as well as those who are viewing. Sometimes Mohanji makes us feel his presence even beyond energetically, many times showing physical signals too.

It’s very easy to discard such signals as imagination or just mere coincidences. For someone, who needs the assurance of Mohanji’s presence, he shows it. Such a signal becomes special for us, because we notice this signal on a specific day, or during a specific session, but not all the time. These signals are not imaginary. These are very much true to show Mohanji’s presence without presence.

Let me narrate a few experiences that we have observed in the last few days.

Last week, on 7th April, during Hanuman Jayanti, Harish and I were chanting the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra. We were live on Facebook.

(https://www.facebook.com/mohanjiuk/videos/685691758915636/)

As we finished chanting, few of the viewers sent some snapshots from this chanting session, where Mohanji’s photo looked exactly like Hanumanji. No doubt, no coincidence, no imagination.

We understood Mohanji’s kindness and compassion. It was his way of showing his presence in a form that someone could connect to. It was such a blessing for all of us to feel the presence of Hanumanji, the Consciousness of Hanuman through Mohanji, through Mohanji’s Consciousness on that occasion.

After all, Para Brahma is one, and only one.

On 13th April, we had a special event, continuous chanting for 12 hours, starting at 6 am. Chai was doing the chanting at that time. While she was about to start, she had some technical issues. She really needed help, and called out to Mohanji, “Please be with me Mohanji.” Of course, her session went on well. When she finished her session (https://www.facebook.com/chailaisiong/videos/10213718080261299/), she noticed the wick of the candle that was in front of Mohanji’s photo showing a clear ‘M’ shape. She realised it was Mohanji showing her the evidence that indeed he was with her.

Then on 14th April, Harish was chanting at 6 am. After his chanting, Pravin bhai messaged saying that he noticed a bright light at the center of Mohanji’s forehead on the photo.

Mohanji_thirdeye light
Bright light in Mohanji’s third eye area

 

After this message, we contemplated on all these experiences.

I thought this might be the reflection of the ceiling light. We have many spotlights on our ceiling and most of the time we can see those multiple lights as multiple dots over the photo. However today, how come just one was there and exactly on the 3rd eye? Where were the other dots, as all the lights were on!

That made me realise, for someone who needs that assurance of Mohanji’s presence, he shows it.

May be Pravin bhai (the viewer who notified us about this special appearance on the photo), needed some assurance that morning and Mohanji made his presence felt.

When I was talking to Pravin bhai later, he further mentioned that, usually in the morning he doesn’t watch FB online sessions. But when he woke up this morning and looked at his phone, the FB session opened up without any notification. Hence he started watching and noticed this dot. He also mentioned that this dot was expanding at times, it was not static. He even showed this to his wife.

Then he mentioned that yesterday during the 12 hour chanting, when he was chanting the Shiva Mantra, he was feeling Mohanji very much and thought in his mind, is Mohanji really listening to his chanting?

So after seeing this dynamic dot on Mohanji’s third eye on this photo, and the way he was made to see this session, he felt it was surely Mohanji giving him darshan and showing that he was pleased with Pravin bhai’s chanting yesterday.

After listening to this detailed account from Pravin bhai, I was sure of my understanding that even though Mohanji is always with us, he shows such symbols at specific instances to show physical evidence to the person.

Just as he did yesterday for Chai too, she was praying to Mohanji to be with her and he showed her his presence through the candle!

Whether it is the ceiling light reflections or a candle, these real material things show something beyond the material items! The true reality beyond the physical!

I was convinced, this is not imagination. This is very much true.

Truth as it IS!

Because this is Mohanji’s response to the love and call of his devotees.

Sacred Homa – Merging into Shiva Consciousness

Mohanji

By Sonia Gandhi, Australia

“I have told them, I’m coming to Sri Lanka in February!” Mohanji uttered these words looking into my eyes in Singapore, in December 2018 after the Consciousness Kriya Initiation, where I was volunteering that day. I was totally confused for a second. Then I thought that it was a good opportunity for me to be with Mohanji again soon.

He said February, and it was in February 2020 when the trip happened. And as destiny had it planned, all the people who were meant to be there were there, in the presence of Mohanji. He is Shiva Consciousness himself for those who have the eyes to see the real energy, beyond his physical appearance or personality.

It’s true too, that you can never see how a true Master operates when you look through human eyes and mind; it’s only when we open the eyes of our soul, truth can dawn upon us.  Only our true self can acknowledge and see a true Master, that too, when we are ready.

I’m eternally grateful for every minute of my life that prepared me for the experience that my soul witnessed during the 12 hours of Homa, which took place on Shivaratri during my Sri Lanka trip.

Mohanji1

After the Global Summit, we had people joining us for the Ramayana Trails pilgrimage on 21st February, which happened to be on Shivaratri. And with Mohanji’s blessings, Mohanji Acharya Rajesh Kamath, supported by Mohanji Acharya Ananth Sankaran, started the Homa around 6.00 pm that day. Such blessed instruments of Mohanji who conducted this Homa for 12+ hours without any breaks and with such intensity. It was overwhelming to see their dedication, focus and commitment along with others who were supporting the holy session.

We wrapped up the last session of the Summit and welcomed all those who were joining the Ramayana Trails. There was an opening satsang with Mohanji, which filled everyone with bliss. Love was flowing in every corner of the room.

Later, when we headed down to join the Homa, we were advised to sit for as long as we could. The Homa had already started in a beautiful location, next to the beach and under the sky with stars witnessing the sacred ceremony.

Mohanji was already seated there, looking intensely towards the sacred fire, as we arrived around 9.15 pm. As we were about to sit in a corner, Mohanji called us and said, “Come sit here!” (in front of him),  and that in itself surprised me.

Homa 1

I sat in front of Mohanji and he jokingly said, “Don’t crush my foot!” His foot had been swollen for the past 20 days, but he didn’t cancel any engagements, meetings, or trips. As he always says, “How can I cancel anything, when people have travelled from far and wide to see me.”

So, he was sitting there and as soon as we settled down, he asked us to chant the mantra ‘Om Namah Shivaya, Shivaya Namah Om.’ The wave of chanting started, while ghee was being offered and the rest of the proceedings were being done.

I closed my eyes and with each chant, I was going deeper and deeper, as if Mohanji was taking me on a journey within. I was trying my best to be in sync with the others who were chanting, but after a while, my chants became louder, as if coming from the deepest corner of my soul.

I lost control over what was happening inside, and my voice was getting deeper and deeper and out of sync with the others. On one side, I was feeling bad that I was not chanting in sync with others and on the other side, believe it or not, I had no control over it.

Homa 2

Soon after, I could see myself in my previous lives; praying, singing and chanting in many lifetimes, yearning to be with Shiva. Someone learned had mentioned long ago that I was a Shiva Bhakta in my previous lives, to which I had not paid much attention to. In this life, my spiritual journey started with Sai Baba, who brought me to Mohanji.

I could see how my soul in every lifetime, chanted and chanted, and yearned to be in Shiva’s presence, to merge with Shiva’s Consciousness. Series of lifetimes were flashing in front of my closed eyes; making me realize that it was not just by coincidence that I got to sit in front of Mohanji; it was Mohanji fulfilling my wish, my yearning of lifetimes, by making me sit there and chant Om Namah Shivaya; from the core of my heart and soul, which was witnessed by all the five elements. Shiva, the Supreme Consciousness, was present as Mohanji, my eternal Father and Guru.

All I wished at that moment was to melt and turn into ashes that very second, not to come back. My soul was completely absorbed in oneness in the chant at Shiva’s feet. There was nothing in this entire life, or previous lives, that were more precious than those moments. This life could have ended there happily, as the deepest wish of my soul was fulfilled, that too, without this physical mind, body and intellect being aware of it. Only Shiva could have known the yearning of this soul. How can I ever offer gratitude to Mohanji for something so precious that was granted to me in such a subtle and unassuming way.

The energy was at its peak and my soul was ready to turn into ashes there and then, to merge with the

Supreme Consciousness, strongly insisting on turning into ashes, as there was nothing else that the soul desired after that. Suddenly Mohanji said, “Stop!” and everything inside me stopped, my consciousness separated from the Supreme and started coming back to the physical world slowly. Everything slowed down and just the chanting remained. I suddenly felt it was not the time to go, there was more remaining of this body’s physical existence.

This ignorant mind knows nothing, I pray to him to give me eyes that see him in everything and everyone, to give me thoughts and words that are filled with his love, to give me ears that hear the best in everyone, to purify my being totally to become an instrument of spreading his light, till it’s time to turn into ashes and merge with him.

When I opened my eyes, it was 1.30 am and we were chanting the Maha Mritunjaya mantra for the rest of the night. We had four dogs, representing Datta’s presence, sitting around us the whole night.

The Homa was completed at 6.30 am, and thanks to the motivation from Lisa, Pooja and Soujanya, I ended up being there till the end, though dozing off slightly many times. Infinite gratitude to Mohanji Acharya Kamath for conducting this powerful Homa ceremony with blessings from Mohanji.

It’s not possible to do justice trying to explain what took place in words; still this was my humble attempt. Ah! How dumb I felt, not understanding the real significance of being called by Mohanji, my Shiva, the Supreme Consciousness, to come to Sri Lanka. Just another example of how ignorant and limited the human mind is, not knowing the real significance of this very subtle hint.

Eternal gratitude at Mohanji’s lotus feet, with a prayer to turn me, my ego, and my existence into ashes, so that only HE remains and works through this body and mind, during every aspect of my remaining life.

Sonia

The magic of Maha Mrityunjaya mantra

Mohanji1

By Rani Govender, South Africa

“Let every breath we take lead us and the society to more awareness and Freedom.” – Mohanji

It is with this thought in mind that I sat to begin Maha Mrityunjaya chanting on 26 March 2020. There was a call from the President of South Africa for all citizens to pray at 18h00 for protection and healing from the coronavirus, so I decided to do the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra for all those infected and affected by the virus and to alleviate fear in the general population of the world.

I wanted a recorded version to chant along to and played one which was shared on our temple WhatsApp group. The pronunciation on this recording did not sound right to me, so I set about to find one which would work well for me. This is how determined I was. Now, I see it as a gentle nudge from the Masters.

Chanting

So I googled and found a chant on YouTube which repeated the mantra 108 times. I began chanting and very quickly became immersed. Despite my throat becoming hoarse, I was determined to chant 108 times and complete my sadhana.

Mohanji Manasarovar

 

Whenever I chant/meditate, I mentally go to Lake Manasarovar. This visualisation just comes naturally to me. This time while chanting, I saw a beautiful form of the Divine Mother dressed in a red and gold Benares sari, walking out of the water. She stayed a while and gave me her darshan.

 

I enjoyed the darshan of the Divine Mother and continued chanting. Then I suddenly saw the Earth from space. A Sage/Sadhu was walking around the planet sprinkling something. As he walked around, I saw that he used Neem leaves to bless the planet.

Shiva-Loka
PC: Google images

As the chanting continued, I saw the Earth divided with lines running vertically. This looked like they could be the Ley lines or energy meridians of the Earth. Seated on top of the planet was a person meditating in padmasana pose, (lotus pose) like Shiva. This vision continued for some time and I was in bliss.

At the end of the chanting, I got the feeling that all will be well and that whatever is happening is karmic and that Mother Earth must heal.

PC: Google images

Before the chanting, I had severe sciatica pain for two days. Despite this pain, I managed to clean the lamps at our Temple and also do all my household chores. Although I pushed through the pain, it was an effort.

Earlier in the afternoon (before the chanting), I found it difficult to get on and off the recliner on which I was resting. After the chanting, I noticed it became easier to get on and off until finally at bedtime, it had eased considerably. I could lie on my side with no pain emanating from my left leg. A day after the chanting, the pain eased to almost nothing!

I was amazed. I was blessed to experience the healing powers of the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra.

This chant is extremely powerful for healing. Chant to protect yourself, your family, community, country and the world at large.

I am in deepest gratitude to Mohanji and the Masters for providing me with this beautiful experience and for the healing which was provided.

Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi Om.

Guru Purnima Celebration Worldwide 2018

Mohanji’s Guru Purnima message

Mohanji - Happy Guru Purnima

“Happy Guru Poornima to all of you.
This is not one day dedicated for the remembrance of your Guru. We should remember guru every moment as a reminder of who and what we actually are.
This day is for you to remember that the true guru is the real you. Your highest truth is your real Guru. Life provides the presence of Guru in your life through various incidents. When incidents are witnessed, when there is a witness, you will feel Guru. When you do not see incidents, instead see only the essence behind all incidents, you dissolve into the Guru. You will realise that you and guru have always been inseparably one. There is essentially no Guru outside of you.

My job is just to take you to yourself. You are the origin (of the journey) and you are the destination. I am just a reminder.

Happy Guru Poornima

With Love
Yours

Mohanji”

Day 2

Mother – The one who loves unconditionally. The one who provides before the child even asks. The one who sleeps on a half belly so that her child can have some extra. The one who leaves no stone unturned to ensure the child gets all the happiness in the world.

It is disheartening when the same child is unwilling to provide a safe roof, extend a supportive hand, a patient ear and a warm hug when the parent needs it the most, as they age.

Mother’s Nest Old Age Home for women is one such shelter which houses aged women who have been abandoned by their kith and kin. Ammucare volunteers at Hyderabad visited the shelter and distributed sarees, groceries and medical supplies and spent some quality time with them.

The elders very happy to just be able to chat with someone and have someone hold them.

Day 3

On 24th July the Hyderabad and Secunderabad Ammucare teams visited Cheers orphanage and Biodiversity slum.

Cheers is not only an orphanage but also a rehab centre. It houses 37 kids in the age grp of 4 – 17 years. Since the Ammucare team is a regular there, the kids were jumping with joy to greet them and wanted to know what goodies where they going to receive.
The team distributed snacks, groceries, text books and clothes to them.
There are a few college going girls who wanted to shop and buy clothes of their choice. The team has decided to pamper them and take them shopping this Sun.


The Jhansi Ammucare team served food to 400 slums dwellers. These people live in huge number in an open area at the outskirts on Gwalior Road. Amongst the Ammucare volunteers was also an Army personnel who lent a helping hand seeing the huge crowd.
Volunteer Preeti Yadav says “We were fortunate enough that the rain which was continuing for last four five days gave us enough time to serve the needy. Feeling blessed to do seva”.

The smiles on the kids’ faces is indeed precious, priceless and tugs at the strings of the heart. There can be nothing more valuable than spreading smiles and a compassionate heart and good intent is all it takes.
Spare a moment to reflect. Let us all do our bit and ensure that the needy do not sleep on an empty belly while we waste gallons of food.

MALAYSIA

On Saturday 28 July 2018, there was a lot of excitement in the air as we prepared for Puja of our dear Mohanji’s paduka. We started with the Maha Mantra and with each chant, beautiful sounds that seem like church bells ringing were heard. We flowed into chanting the 108 names of Mohanji whilst performing the Paduka Puja with offerings of milk and flowers and rose water.

Family members then performed Aarti and thereafter settled down for the Bliss of Silence Meditation. Peace and silence was experienced but one family member heard footsteps near the altar. Presence of Mohanji, Shirdi Baba and Devi Amma were deeply felt.

For the first time at the centre, our Prasad was food specially cooked by some family members topped up with a chocolate cake.

It was indeed a day of celebration remembering our beloved Guru Mohanji.🙏❤️

On Sunday 29 July 2018, visit to a childrens’ home began with the purchase of groceries under wish list of orphanage. Many family members, friends and devotees of Satya Sai Baba had generously contributed to the purchase and also tea for the home. Used furniture still in good condition was also arranged for delivery to the home.

The caretakers of the home are a couple and their children and two helpers. We had arrived at a time where the caretakers and some children had gone to arrange a burial ceremony of a dog which had been killed in an accident. The children had insisted on a proper burial for the dog. Love for animals flowed at such a young age.

There are 22 children ranging from 2 months old to 17 Years under the care of the home. We started with the Freedom Meditation. Children as young as 2 years and below, tried their very best to sit upright and keep their eyes closed. It was such a joy watching them. But alas, the warm day and lunch had taken its toil on them as they struggled to stay awake listening to the soothing music and voice of Mohanji.

There was much laughter and fun as the singing and games started and the highlight was tea time. Heart melting moments as we watched the children, the older ones feeding and taking care of the younger ones. The little ones ate their food with relish and even cleared their own plates and cups on finishing their meal.

Ending the event with sweets and chocolates distribution, brought more cheer and smiles from the little ones.

Gurupurnima, a remembrance to offer Gratitude to our Guru, Master, and all the teachers who gave us knowledge to recognize our best capacity and inner strength. Guru Tatwa that resides in Nature, Guru Tatwa that connects us to the Supreme Consciousness. Food was offered to shelter as part of the Gurupurnima celebrations. 
Devotees at Mohanji Datta Tapovan Canada got together to celebrate this auspicious day in Unison. Vegan is the theme of this Ashram. Vegan is one of Mohanji’s teachings and by following HIS teachings All the prasad that was prepared was total vegan. The event started with Pranav chants and Mohanji Pooja. All Deities were invited with deep gratitude and total surrender with devotion that drenched each eye and touched deeply within each heart. Mohanji Pooja was followed by Mohanji Gayatri Mantra chanted unanimously 108 times. The vibrations thus generated made many tremble and Speechless. All Devotees got their Padukas and we had a Paduka Abhishekham chanting Mohaji’s 108 names. That Holy water was then distributed as Prasad amongst all. After the Paad Pooja each heart was radiating with love and heartfelt gratitude towards Mohanji and all the Guru Tatwa that continuously guide us and bless us all.The bhaav was so deep that it inspired into spontaneous kirtans that became the soul of the event, many sang, many danced, many just swayed away in HIS Glory. Though externally to honour the flow of life the pooja was concluded by offering Bhog{Food} followed by aarti, internally the celebrations continued each moment with Mohanji’s presence residing in each heart. All present relished the Holy prasad and took home peace and love. We ever remain grateful in the Lotus Feet of Mohanji and Sainaath Maharaj. 
 
Jai Jai Sadguru Shree Mohanji Maharaj.

USA

We started the Guru Poornima observance by the Mohanji Family in the USA on Friday, July 6 with a group chanting of the Mohanji Gayatri mantra for 108 times. This continued for 21 days until Thursday, July 26.  Our group of hosts, Vidya from Connecticut, Vidya from Florida, and Pia and George from the DC area took lead in chanting and were joined by a group of dedicated chanters from all over USA via Zoom. On the day of the Guru Poornima, devotees offered prayers individually, with devotion and reverence to the Guru Parampara and to our beloved Guru Brahmarishi Mohanji and some conducted group meditation in their homes.

Devotees here have had many service projects in the pipeline for a while and it is worth noting that even though many tasks have taken long to culminate successfully, they reached fruition just in time for Guru Poornima, owing to the Guru’s grace. The following are a few noteworthy contributions made by our M family members to honor Mohanji and to offer love and gratitude:

Vidya from Connecticut successfully worked with Insight Timer, a very popular meditation app, to add the Power of Purity Meditation, opening it to the community of meditators all over the world.

Pia introduced the HSTY Kid’s Yoga at the Wat Thai Buddhist Temple in Washington DC as she took the children on an imaginary and fun-filled journey through a jungle, enjoying various animals through yoga poses.  The pictures taken at the event reflect the palpable sense of joy among those children.

Several members of the US family also participated in the global Guru Poornima Food Seva in Shirdi coordinated by Viji and other members of the ACT Foundation.

Anu introduced Conscious Dance in Virginia, to participants ranging from ages 3 to 75. Everyone who participated enjoyed the session with the same level of enthusiasm and energy.

GURUDEVA – OH MY MASTER LISTEN TO MY CALL – the trial recording of a new song, composed and sung by Lata, accompanied on the piano by Benjamin and video choreography by George was posted on Mohanji USA FB page here. We will be working further as a team to complete full recording.

With the blessings of Mohanji, the excerpt from a new recording of a chant originally conceived by Devadas, jointly sung by Natesh and Jelena – Guru Mohana Sharanam – was released. The full recording will be available through Gurulight.  A global effort led by Natesh!

Manu has been working hard for the past several months to put together some exclusive merchandise inspired by Mohanji. With Mohanji’s Grace Divine M Heritage was launched on the Guru Poornima Day.

Guru Poornima celebrations concluded on Sunday, July 29th with a beautiful gathering at the Celebration Center for Spiritual Living, Virginia. The magical evening started with the Freedom Meditation and everyone present became as a child.  The evening filled with joy and love, and moved on from meditation to dance, music and chanting, and concluded with a beautiful Arathi to Mohanji and the Guru Parampara.  Mohanji’s presence was felt intensely as unconditional love filled the air and the hearts, when Ben who joined the evening towards the end, played the song ‘Unconditional Love’ on the saxophone leaving everyone in bliss and silence.  JAI MOHANJI.

This was only the beginning of Guru Poornima celebration that will continue in Food Seva over the weekend at Skandavale.

As part of Guru Poornima celebration, we carried out food seva at Skandavale temple on the weekend through a snack stall. While we served snacks and tea to the devotees outside the main food time (temple serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner to all devotees) in the times while they wait between the pujas, the income generated from this snack stall goes as donation towards the Hospice that Skndavale trust maintains. So in turn, our seva was to the terminally ill people who are being looked after by the Hospice. More than 600 devotees were fed over the weekend and we generated a good amount from the snack stall, that went to Hospice. This seva was more than just merely a snack stall and generating money. This entire two days of event was, as ever, a clear sign of divine play. Things thats ususally not easy for us, happened smoothly. We will not exaggerate if we say that we feel Mohanji’s presence in every bit of activities that we did. From the food being tasty to people being satisfied and not hesitating to praise and buying more to even taking away our tiredness of constant standing and working with hardly any rest! There was joy all the time! Smile never left our face! This joy and happiness was so evident to others, we even get complimented on that! This is not ordinary. Times when we needed something and would have just thought of Mohanji, in no time, that issue would have got sorted out! On top of all this, we even got chance to be part of all the special Pujas in temple, which otherwise with so much crowd, is an impossible chance. Divine ensured that all our unasked desires were fulfilled too. We thought we were doing seva!!! In reality, we were blessed with the opportunity just with Mohanji’s pure grace! How much ever we explain, words will not be enough to express our gratitude to our “Incarnation of Compassion” – Mohanji for BEING with us every single moment!!! Mohanji your Love for us all is immesurable! Thank you for making our tiny effort, successful with your presence. All our efforts surrendered at your feet.

We felt exactly how much the energy was stronger than usual, thanks to the power of the full Moon eclipse. The program continued by chanting ‘Om namah Shivaya’ 108 times which deepened our connection with Shiva aspect of our dear spiritual master Mohanji. Finally, through Aarti, we thanked Mohanji for his blessings that he showered us with this evening. After the program, nobody felt like going home, so we continued enjoying in energies, good company and sharing our spiritual experiences.

The Master’s Stroke

Grace was just another word in the dictionary
Till you took me under your wings;
Surrender was never a word I knew
Till your words taught me;
Surrender I did and what followed was only and only Grace.

Love, you gave me so unconditionally
Never did I fathom its boundaries till you loved me;
Faith, not a feeling but a tradition so powerful
Dawned on me as your blessings enveloped me
Richer and richer I became, no trophies or bounties could give me.

Service and Compassion could be so magical and expanding
Every cell of me started experiencing
Because you were present every moment
Guiding to be pure in thoughts, words and actions
Being meaningful in existence for one and all.

I have only one thing to offer you my Master
Gratitude and Gratitude every second of my life
Half a decade and a metamorphosis I have undergone
With your love, your grace,your blessings and omnipresence
For this, none other than me can vouch and comprehend.

On this auspicious day an amazing experience shared with deep gratitude by Neelu Vepu. As below:

“One more Mohanji Leela graced by Him on my family…

My cousin Sameer was admitted in a hospital in Hyderabad, last Saturday with high fever.(He is a young boy of 25 yrs old.He has lost his parents and little brother in a tragic road accident while returning from Shirdi ten years ago). Doctors first diagnosed it to be Dengue, owing to the rapid fall in his platelets.
But after some time, tests came positive for malaria and Jaundice too.His body temperature was not coming to normal even after medication for 3 days.As soon as I came to know of this, yesterday afternoon i messaged Mohanji for help. He immediately replied even though he was very busy and advised some thing to be done for removal of his Karma.His consciousness was there with him helping Sameer recover.When i prayed Mohanji before I went to bed yesterday and asked him, whether Sameer will be ok, then he replied in consciousness that he was there beside Sameer. Last night the situation was very grim.
Just in one night, Mohanji changed the whole scenario .
Now today, he is having a normal body temperature, no signs of malaria, dengue, or jaundice after further tests.And he has been shifted to a normal room in the hospital from ICU. And he will be discharged in just two days after some observation. Mohanji made the ordeal of one week over in just one night.

Such love and grace is possible only from him.
Thank you so much my Gurudev for everything.

Always at Your Lotus Feet,
Neelu

We fed 70 kids at Plastic View today. They had apples, oranges, bread, chips and a sweetie.

‘ “Big doors swing on small hinges” this saying comes to mind when we visited the Baby Home, home to abandoned children, poverty and homelessness are often causes of child abandonment but we can make a difference by sharing unconditional love for them, one person at a time! In honor of Guru purnima we spent time at this home today giving them token gifts but most importantly our Love! Spare a thought for these beautiful embodiments of Love by visiting these places and just spreading love by giving them the gift of your time and love, so simple! Blessings!’ says Sulosh Pillai

Inspired by Guru Brahmarishi Mohanji and the incredibly transforming impact He has in every moment of my life, (in all of our lives) coupled with His lovingly, fatherly nature – a video and song dedication spontaneously came together as a tribute to my beloved Guruji on Guru Purnima. These words are a small attempt to try to describe the indescribable way that Baba makes me feel. The song dedication “You raised me up” by Westlife (2005) felt like the most appropriate dedication to the One who truly Raised me up in every aspect of this life.
This video dedication can be viewed here.

A Mystique Yogi Nath Mohanji

“Mohan”
He captivates everyone
Like his name
He walks with a grace
Glow on his face

A Bewitching smile
With an innocence of a child

On his path
None goes empty
Animals or Humans
He showers his blessings

He gazes with compassion
With never ending love

Some address him as Guruji
Some call him Master or Baba
Some call him Father

For me he is my all in one
A “Big Brother”
An assurance he gives me
“I am always with you ”
Is a reminder from my beloved Guru
All I can say is I love him
All I can see is Love personified

Jai Matha ! Jai Bhagwan !!
Jai Mohanji ! Jai Guru Parampara !!

Love you loads
My humble Pranam at your lotus feet
So blessed are all of us with you being with us at every moment of our life.

Pranam Mohanji. Happy Guru Poornima. I am out of words. Silence will probably be able to convey what I need to. Beyond this existence, in the true merger, You and I are One. Simply because I do NOT EXIST. Let me be WITH You, Let me be IN You, Let me BE You! After your beautiful message, I better keep Silence. Thank You for every moment.

I was looking forward to a blissful Guru Purnima day as the work front was light. Surprising it started with an Emergency at 5am. I was rushing to the hospital at the same time thanking Mohanji as I realised he had already planned my day. With His Grace all the four situations were handled and I cud reach back by evening. Was conscious of the Gurus day as well as instructions for the Lunar Eclipse ,when Mohanji said, Connect as much to me. Physical tiredness crept in yet prepared a small make shift Alter bed side and as I was by myself started a mixture of chanting, Mantras, Gayatri and few talks as means of connections with Father. Could go on till around 1.30 am when was conscious of total lunar eclipse. Same time like an small innocent child crying for ice cream, my mind also wanted to feel his presence but kept on telling myself to just stay connected as rest was his job. Was in and out of next side bed, still awake and throughout chanting something. By 3.30 am sat in the alter a bit more before retiring in about 15 minutes surrendering all what He could make my tired body do. Around 4am I am awakened, but to my utmost surprise not my myself but the VOICE OF MOHANJI who enters my room. No physical form seen but only in Ether form asking me, What about the Aarti? Is the speaker plugged in. All get ready for the Aarti.I immediately get up only to realise firstly that Mohanji is here completing my unfinished Sadhna with the Aarti.
The time coincided exactly with the end of the Eclipse. Secondly, the last candel finished the moment I opened my eyes after Aarti and thanking Mohanji for making it complete.
Thirdly, I was in Connect with all the Mohanji Family doing all Sewa throughout the day so am sure when Mohanji said, all of you get up, I truly believe that all of you were present in my subconscious in a big way. It was nothing to do with only me but the whole Mohanji Family.
Like always He just made me do my plugging in and rest of the Deliveries he made both on a physical and spirit level.
Am sure each one was blessed their own ways by Mohanji.
All in His feet🙏❤🙏

OM SAI RAM

Interface and interaction with numinous souls in diverse physical forms is indeed the feat of fate or destiny or, of course, our Karma. Either way, it is BLISS.

Sree Bhagwan 2I, being an ordinary mortal plunged in family life, had but no thoughts except for the daily rat race of my life. The light of my inner soul dawned after I met my Guru, Poojya Sree Bhagwan in 1998 who incited my spiritual quest and philosophical qualms. Henceforth, I had no looking back and the consciousness that this Guru has been known to me since eons left me spellbound. Every physical form must go into oblivion as is the law of nature and my Guru attained Samadhi on 15th August 2017 leaving me and my family in an abyss of grief. This preface is indispensable when I narrate my acquaintance with Mohanji on the 17th of September 2017. Behold, I perceived the same feel of vibrations I experienced with my Guru, Poojya Sree Bhagwan, the soul bond and my inner call to meet him surged another infinite accord in my life with Mohanji.

Nityananda Swami of Ganeshpuri had blessed my maternal grandfather and grand-uncle in the course of their numerous visits to his ashram and I used to watch on YouTube the aarti going on there. It was by prospect, or by providence that my eyes fell on a discourse by Mohanji on Swami Nityananada and this enticed my instantaneous interest. This led me to view another talk of Mohanji on Shirdi Sai Baba.

My inquisitiveness to know more grew without bounds and I set on a trail to find the means and ways to meet Mohanji.

The first thought was to spot if he had a Facebook account and to my surprise he had and he was visiting the UK. My yearning to meet him augmented by time and my thoughts frantically set on informing about him to my consort and better half, Aroma! On informing and briefing on Mohanji, I enquired if she was interested to meet him as he was visiting the UK. Ignorant of who Mohanji was, Aroma expounded on his picture that he appeared like a CEO of some company. To my surprise, he used to be one, and this intrigued me further to reach him.  Mr. Vijay gave in sequence that he would be in Bath on the 17th September 2017 and we started our journey along with our friends Rohit Phillip and Sue Tasher to Bath, from Penarth.

Certain meetings spark imperative kinship from the past, not explicable to ordinary mortals. Such was our meeting with Mohanji.  Memories imprinted in our brain shape as dreams and there, I found myself entangled in the spiritual aura of Mohanji leading us both down a pleasing panorama.

MY INNER REFLECTIONS WITH THE DIVINE

5th January 2018

Visions are a supernatural apparition or a spectre of events which can define certain spiritual encounters and I experienced one, after my usual chanting. It goes thus…

I was physically in front of an idol and that idol to my bewilderment was Mohanji and accolades were accorded as Jai Mohanji and Om Namah Shivaya many a time by the devotees amassed around.

The aarati focused towards the deity in the sanctum sanctorum threw light on two shivalingas ingrained by silver plating and arrayed by exquisite flowers.

The bliss I endured was unfathomable and I spanned over to my substantial entity chanting Om Namah Shivaya wide awake.

4th Feb 2018

Any unprecedented event spoiling our tranquillity initiates us to think about the position of our stars – a typical Indian Hindu mind. I being no exception was in the same path due to lack of a good job which compelled me to pilot my celestial stars and their positions. Lo and behold, the divination I acquired was that I was engulfed in SHANI DASHA. The burden of filling up many job applications took its toll on me and as my last resort for my chaotic mind, I approached my benefactor and saviour, Mohanji.

As usual the serene reply from him, “Don’t worry,” ascertained me to adopt an unwavering mind to subsist life as it comes with the equivalent momentum as if I had a job. The shani mantra of “Om Sham Shanishwaraaya Namah” came to my salvage and I supposed all would be resolved. The feel was akin to the one I would cognize when my Guru was with me.

The impediment in implementing my job offer in London impelled me to mention this to my friend who took up the issue and started punching numbers on his phone in the process of contacting someone. Caught unawares of what was happening behind him, he declared that a job has been set for me in a care home in Wales. Meanwhile hidden in the backdrop was a familiar face smiling at me and I jolted to comprehend that it was Mohanji’s face which was showing up at all glory in front of me.  My friend was in no frame of mind to stop praising the new job I was offered. Amidst all this cacophony I felt I was hallucinating, but inevitably was not and perceiving Mohanji nod at me in complete agreement to take up the Job, I knew it was no dream and my eyes could not betray me.

As an arid land absorbs every tiny drop of water, this job offered solace to my scorched mind and the affirmation Mohanji transmitted through his smile and nod goes beyond rationalization. The job was undeniably a stability pill for me and added to that, caring for the elderly was a spiritual endeavour.

Eventually, I was gratified because I would be with my dear ones in London itself. What more does a human need? Indeed, a family package!

9th Feb 2018

The craving of the soul is unfathomable. It leads us to supernatural situations and places. One such hunger in my inner self was Shiva Kavacham by Mohanji which haunted me day and night. I resolved to explore the usual online source YouTube, but in vain. My thoughts started speculating on why I was deprived of understanding this Shiva Kavacham by Mohanji. Later, it was made clear by Mohanji himself who appeared to me as a 3D image and elucidated the power of this Kavacha and explained why it was covert.

The inner quest materialized when I got a copy of Shiva Kavacham from Subhasree and  I solicited permission from Mohanji to listen and chant this.  I was very glad in return to tender her a pdf copy of Shani Mahtmyam in English which my Guru used to read daily.

On February 23rd (Mohanji’s birthday), my inner self boomed with the yearning to render Mohanji my deepest and inner feeling in the form of a stuthi or poem and it poured out from me frenziedly, the medium of expression being Sanskrit. Will share it when the destined time approaches

10th March 2018

This day was very propitious to me as it happened to be my Poojya Sree Bhagawan’s birthday. If in physical form he would have turned 93.  Darshan of Avadhoota Nandandaji was soul gratifying followed by the sight of Mohanji standing and praying in a hall which was veraciously bedecked with tables and chairs set like in a fine dine restaurant.

My thoughts raced to connect this vision with the current job offered to me, that I had accepted in a fine dine restaurant in Cheltenham.  Same day I could visualize oil dripping from the photo of my Guru, Poojya Sree Bhagawan, which emanated the fragrance of sandalwood.

16th March 2018

My association of the soul which was connected to Mohanji persevered. I dreamt away to glory, perceiving Mohanji as my mentor or spiritual guide. We strolled into serene places and it was bliss.  Out of the blue! Mohanji handed me a silver paper with Sanskrit inscriptions of the chant Om Ram Ramaya Namah. Surprises persisted, yet again Mohanji took out another article, which was inscribed in Tamil, and it delineated on Shirdi Sai Baba and Keno Upanishad. Since the language of Tamil was Greek and Latin to me, my friend was asked to read out the inscriptions to me. Mohanji presumed my dilemma on the Tamil language and proposed that it would all be clear and the inner meaning will be revealed. Soon, I was handed a golden hued watch by Mohanji seeking me to adorn it and with the words of utmost importance and divinity he held: ‘LET YOUR SERVICE TO HUMANITY BEGIN’. My inner thoughts revealed that the watch was a reminder of how precious time is and the goal is to live in the present, serving as a tool to enforce service to humanity.  As all holy books and teachings preach ‘MANAV SEVA MADHAV SEVA –  SERVING HUMANITY IS TO SERVE GOD’.

The mantra entrusted to me was to be included in my daily chant and then I realized that Rama Navami was on the 25th March. In addition to the chants, I also had the opportunity to read the English version of Kena Upanishad which precisely depicts Brahman with attributes and without attributes, and for being a treatise on “purely conceptual knowledge”. It reaffirms the idea of “Spiritual Man”, “Soul is a wonderful being that even gods worship”, “Atman (Soul) exists”, and “knowledge and spirituality are the goals and intense longing of all creatures”.

16th March 2018

After my Sharana Mantra and Mohanji’s Gayatri Mantra, I felt an inner urge to peer out of my window and gaze at the Sky. I felt the clouds impinging on each other to conform a silhouette. I contemplated more closely at the shape formed by the clouds and could view that it was Kalyan my younger son’s face and it emanated pain. I looked again and it was the same. Disturbed, I sat down in meditation and was in the process of sending healing vibes to him, in case he was in pain. Kalyan had gone for a night out with other children from the school on the 15th of March. He was all thrilled and robust the previous day. At the defined moment, the landline rang and it was from the school reception asking me to instantly collect back Kalyan from his camp place. He was ill and had been vomiting. Mysterious are the ways of the divine masters, enigmatic and it’s with awe we realize how they render a helping hand and guard us in our troubled times. I surrender to the divine, bow to the supreme masters and my faith in the Guru is impeccable.

3rd April 2018

My visions sustained and this time I was in a Satsang where Mohanji was encircled by many people who came to see him and get blessings, after his Latin American visit. I remained a witness and was imbibing the scene, when Mohanji spotted me and asked me to sit beside him and placed his hands on my shoulder lovingly. After few moments Mohanji got into a trance sort and his bhaav (expression) changed followed by the presence of Vibhuti on his right palm. He applied it on my forehead and blessed me by placing his hands on my head. The flow of energy from his hands to my body surged in and I was in total ecstasy. The divine energy was activated in me. The vibhuti which I tasted did have the divine fragrance as well.

Meanwhile, Mohanji started giving vibhuti to people around him and many thanked me, because they felt I was the reason behind Mohanji giving vibhuti and I personally thanked Mohanji for this amazing experience.

THE HOLY CHANT: THE KEY TO ETERNAL BLISS

I have been chanting the Sharana Mantra given by my Sadguru Rama Devi, who was my Guru, Poojya Sreee Bhagawan’s Guru. Before departing the earthly abode, she imparted this mantra to his disciples, Poojya Sree Bagawan and his consort Tara Devi on 1st November 1978. This universal Mahamantra is:

CHARANAM SHARANAM RAMAMBAKE

CHARANAM SHARANAM TRAYAMBAKE

Charanam means holy feet, Sharanam means Surrender, Ramambike means the one who gives material and spiritual wealth. Trayambake means the one who knows my past, present and future.

It literally means “I surrender to that supreme source or power which gives me material and spiritual wealth, I surrender to that supreme power who knows my past, present and future.”

My Guru used to say it is a mystical formula. It only asks the spiritual seeker to surrender. One has to chant from 5.30am to 5.45 am every day for it to give the desired result quickly. I have been doing this since 1998.

In reality, when you surrender your ego at the feet of the Guru/God, the Guru/God takes heed of all your trouble. You are no longer carrying the “I” sense, it is renunciated to the absolute Guru.

If one understands the Guru tattva, the source is the same, the form changes. This can be understood if you love your Guru, you see him in everyone and everything. I see my Guru through and in Mohanji. The love, care and presence which my Guru gave me is what I see in him.

My Guru used to tell me,“Pramod, I am always with you”

When I met Mohanji he said the same thing, “Pramod, I am always with you”.

Incredible are the ways of true masters.
