1. MOHANJI’S BIRTHDAY SATSANG

Mohanji’s satsang took place in Bangalore, India. Mohanji and all the people present were showered with blessings from priests of sacred and powerful temples in Bharat (India), including the chief priest of Jagannatha temple in Puri, the chief priest of Sai Baba temple at Shirdi, the main archakas of Mookambika temple (Kollur) and Ganagapur Dattatreya temple.

Participation by esteemed guests from Bengaluru and beyond. A whole host of followers not just in the hall but also online – we had people from over 6 continents watching our live stream.

Launch of new books adding a new dimension to the readers.

A delicious cake cutting. Bhajans and opportunities for people to come up close and offer their gratitude.

The program came together beautifully, demonstrating the values that Mohanji stands for and his mission in this world.

Even though the hall couldn’t receive many people, our global family could join us online for the live-streaming, and the lovely energy of unity was felt throughout.

For the first time, chief priests of some of the most powerful temples of India came together and showered their blessings on Mohanji and all of us present. Aside from them, distinguished businessmen and celebrities attended the event.

The evening began on an auspicious note with sacred chants by the children from Vedic Kids; a Mohanji inspired platform to encourage children to learn the virtues of Sanatana Dharma early in their life. This was followed by a colourful and joyous performance by the children trained by the Himalayan School of Traditional Dance (HSTD), led by Radha Subramanian, Artistic Director of HSTD.

Soon after, Mohanji took the stage and spoke for a short while, followed by an engaging Q&A session. Some of the questions ranged from “Is there an end-state for how the level of happiness or unhappiness is growing in the world?”, “How do you rate your level of contentment on a scale of 1 to 10?” to several other questions on life and practical aspects of spirituality. There was also a historical reference of how the Mohanji Foundation platform came to life, also beautifully shown in a short video about Mohanji that was launched in public on this occasion.

This was followed by an important segment of the program where special gifts were presented to Mohanji. The Chief Priest of the Lord Jagannath temple in Puri honoured Mohanji with a special vastra (cloth) that Lord Jagannath wore through the night, called “Bada Singhara Besa”. Mohanji and Devi were gifted a shawl draped on the idol of Sai Baba at the main Shirdi temple, enveloping them with the grace of Sai Baba. The main priest from Mookambika temple honoured Mohanji with a special saree that was worn by the Goddess Mookambika the previous day, and similarly, special blessings from the sacred temple of Dattatreya at Ganagapur were showered on Mohanji.

A beautiful birthday surprise by Devi and Mila Mohan followed – Devi shared the experience of her visit to Mohanji Ka Aangan, bringing joy to the kids through Latino and Bollywood dance, birthday cake and sweets. This birthday gift on behalf of the ACT Foundation was the recognition that the greatest gift we can give Mohanji is to serve the underprivileged and share our love unconditionally with those who need it the most.

2. BOOK LAUNCH (published by GURULIGHT)

The evening then proceeded with the launch of the following books:

The Mohanji Platforms Annual Report 2021 is a detailed compendium of all activities from various platforms founded by Mohanji in 2021. This was launched by Shri H Basavarajendra, IAS (Commissioner, Department of Animal Husbandry & Vet Services) and Mr K.D Row, Exec Director, Air India (Retired)

Power of Purity translated into Marathi – launched by Shri Pattajoshi Mahapatra, Shri Sulakhe Maharaj, Shri Subramanya Adiga and Shri Girish Bhatt

Power of Purity translated into Marathi

Power of Purity translated into Tamil – launched by Ms Lakshmi Gopalaswami, Mr R Vaikunth and Mrs R Suhasini (who translated the book into Tamil)

Miraculous Days with Mohanji translated into Malayalam, translated by Shankar Narayanan Meetna and proofread by Dr P.K Namboodiri. This book was launched by Mr Ullas Kamath, Mrs Vasanta Vaikunth and Mrs Shobha Chandran.

Guru Leela 5 – a collection of nine testimonials of people’s experiences with Mohanji. This book was launched by Mr Kamal Pant, IPS (Commissioner of Police, Bengaluru), Mr Suresh Senapathi, Mr Ram Chugh and Rekha Murali.

The evening was crowned by the cake cutting performed on stage by Mohanji’s closest family members (parents, wife and daughter). Mohanji also spent time meeting all the people who had congregated at the venue to wish him, as well as with the invited guests. Later, on behalf of EBC kids and Teens, Nanda Nair and Mila Mohan performed the song “Happy” on stage, to the delight of all present.

Finally, it was time to wind up, but no one wanted to leave the beautiful energy of the venue. The entire evening was a celebration of humanity and our highest expression.

3. GLOBAL INITIATIVE

  • Since 23rd Jan, around 230 devotees across the globe came together to do daily 3 times chanting leading up to Mohanji’s Birthday. The aim was to do NON-STOP 24 HOURS chanting on 23rd Feb, that actually turned into a 48 HOUR NON-STOP Chanting!
    This was not planned! We all witnessed how Mohanji facilitated this beautifully, all coordinated by volunteers from different parts of the world. Sure enough, this was the need of the hour! 

    This chanting was not just for Mohanji’s well-being, but for using his unlimited energy source to spread peace, vitality and positivity to the whole world. Selfless service is not just in doing Annadaan, even chanting to raise the vibrations of the world with Mohanji’s energy is a great seva that you have all done.

Thank you to all the Acharyas and volunteers who have been leading the chanting sessions in the 3 slots every day for the entire month! Special thank you to Bhumika, Parizad, Smriti and others who coordinated the last 48 hours of NON-STOP chanting so efficiently! You were all beautiful instruments of Mohanji, indeed!

And the last chanting session was so powerful, where Mohanji showed his presence so beautifully! Thank you, everyone, for your devotion with purity, your seva with sincerity and your love for Mohanji, which is incomparable!

Deep gratitude to all of you!

AMERICAS

USA

On the auspicious occasion of Mohanji’s 57th birthday on 23 Feb 2022, Mohanji’s USA family joined together to celebrate with an outpouring of love, devotion, joy, and at times riotous laughter!
The evening began with Guru pada puja along with the chanting of Mohanji Ashtotram and offering of flowers and rice at Guru’s feet. It was followed by a series of programs performed by devotees all over the USA, including bhajans, chantings, and book reading. Various devotees offered their gratitude at Mohanji’s feet by singing bhajans and chanting Guru paduka stotram, siddha mangala stotram, Mohanji’s favourite ‘Garuda gamana’ stotram, Hanuman chalisa, Mohanji Gayatri, and bhakti yoga from Bhagavad-Geeta. A few pages from Mohanji’s book ‘Silence of Shiva’ were read out, mesmerizing and transporting everyone to Mohanji’s consciousness. The evening included a beautiful birthday surprise: a presentation on the topic of laughter that was a compilation of many delightful pictures of Mohanji’s laughing face along with his quotes on “causeless laughter”. In the end, no one wanted to leave this beautiful energy of love and lightness.

While Mohanji believes that neither he nor his birthday is special and that this is a ‘consciousness day’, he has also said, “If you remember me as ‘consciousness’, and if my presence is a reminder to you of what we truly are, (that you and I are one), do celebrate.”
And we will never miss an opportunity to celebrate him!!!
This quote is from a letter of gratitude written by Mohanji on his birthday in 2019.

The book was released during Mohanji’s birthday celebrations in Bangalore, India.

Music is a divine gift, a gift of God. It is tuning in the sacred and an expression of continuity. The origin of the Universe was in the form of sound, and scriptures says “OM”. Music is emanated from metaphysical principles and the manifestation of these ideas within lyrics and tunes of classical songs.

February in the EBC Balkan platform was very dynamic. Every month we cover a certain topic and have guests talk about it. The February theme was ‘The world around us’. We have focused on the energies that we surround ourselves with, and two guests have spoken. The first guest’s theme was ‘Balance of the energy through movement’, and the second one spoke on ‘The Light inside us’. 

The morning routine in the club has been shared and followed by consistent early birds members, in February, like in other months.

EARLY BIRDS CLUB KIDS

EBC Kids Team,

Empower Kids Through Entertainment

1. New initiative: Ignite the Spark – Mohanji with Kids

Every child is born with a spark to shine bright in this world. However, due to pressure from family, schools and society, we can see that children lose their inner joy and become dull from an early age. 

On Mohanji’s Birthday, EBC Kids is happy to announce Ignite the Spark, a unique online program for kids and parents with Mohanji to enable each child to reach their highest potential.

In a series of sessions, Mohanji is going to kindle the inner potential in children by directly interacting with them. During these sessions, Mohanji will also guide parents on the nuances of nurturing children to bloom to their best. Email kids@earlybirdsclub.org for more information.

Little Medha got a unique opportunity to play a song on the piano exclusively for Mohanji on his birthday on 23rd Feb 2022 at the Taj Westend Hotel Bengaluru.

Your words are strong like truth over lies 
Your smile tells us to be positive at all type of situations.

M. B. SreeGanesh’s heartfelt wishes:

THE AWAKENING TIMES

Interview with Mohanji conducted by Christopher Greenwood

Christopher Greenwood (CG): Mohanji, good to be here with you, thank you. I’m excited to ask these questions about your journey so far and the platforms that you’ve created. 2022 is quite a big year because it marks a decade since you embarked on selfless service. How would you describe your journey so far?

Mohanji (M): After 22 years in a shipping career, on June 18, 2021, I left my shipping career and completely deviated into spiritual services, philanthropic activities, and humanitarian activities. It was a big leap, and it was a plunge into uncertainty because I had no clue what to expect. All that I had done, all those years, did not matter anymore. It’s a new page, a fresh page. Now, looking back, I believe the purpose began then. In most of our lifetimes, or most times of our life, we are in a kind of autopilot mode; we take birth, go through education, job, marriage, children, house, retirement… things like that. It never fascinated me; I knew that there is something much larger, much bigger, much more meaningful. Read more: http://awakeningtimes.com/mohanjis-birthday-interview/

Dr. Harpreet Wasir, India

Birthday is a special day to share the importance of having a Guru in one’s human life journey. This is the time to acknowledge the metamorphic changes which occur just by mere constant and consistent connection with total faith and surrender which happens with His acceptance. It’s a total change which happens and not be done in His presence. For me it is pure lifetime patience and surrender to my Guru Mohanji without expectation standing by His side as an ever empty vessel, to be filled in which ever way He feels so and when He feels so as that is His job. My job was and is to always be plugged in, rest it’s to Him and He secretly but surely delivers in His own way. I, myself, my work and my life is what He has chiseled and shaped for me.

I will never leave Him, He will never leave me. This is my path to Liberation which my Guru knows best as to how and when. My job is just to be and be with Him. This is the simplest thing of my life, to just be and be with Him.

I just have all my love for Him and work for Him relentlessly to deliver Him to all He sends to me in any form and condition.

A testimonial from Sanjay Acharya on the journey of ‘Shata Sahasra Suryaaya’ release today!*

“Dear Subhasree & Moushumi.  

I offer my deepest gratitude to you for making this happened in such a short time. I would like to share with you that I was after my music director since more than 6 months to re-record this powerful Mohanji Gayatri. It was just one for word, it was to re-record, which is “Sahasra” instead of “Sahastra”. He was consistently denying due to various reasons including Covid. I gave him many options but didn’t work. 3 days ago I was doing 360 degree Meditation, connecting through my cell phone with headphones on. I was feeling Father’s Energy so intense that within that intensity, I prayed Father to make this arrangement of re-recoding. And The Job Done in 2 minutes – my cellphone rang….I was forced to break the meditation. I opened my eyes and checked, it was  Out music director’s call. I picked up and he said, “ SanjayJi when is GuruJi’s Birthday? (I informed him earlier). Let us re-record GuruJi Gayatri on Monday. Please come at 4pm to my home studio.” Tears! I went on Monday. Recording done. Then I was thinking what is next? But then soon I decided not to do anything, no posting, no video etc….Then out of the way Subhasree sent me WA message, “ Do you have any songs to offer to Mohanji? If so, please send me to upload on Mohanji And I YT and premier” ….I was like oh my Mohanji…! I sent audio  to Subha then Out of the way Moushumi came in to picture and now a beautiful video has been created… What A Great Guru Leela! Thank you Father, offering to your Lotus Feet. 

Yours Only

Carry your heart in mine, vast as space

Mohanji yelllow

Sreeja Ranjit, Ethiopia

“You didn’t come to me, I came to you. That is how much love I have for my people.” Mohanji

Whenever I read or remember this quote, I am overwhelmed with gratitude and have tears flowing down my cheeks. I come from a family in Kerala, India, where both my parents and in-laws do not believe in following a Guru’s teachings. So even though I was very religious and used to visit temples frequently, I never believed that a Guru would walk into my life and change it forever.

I always had the desire to do social service, charity work, and to help people who were in need, but was always skeptical because I did not know if it was reaching the right hands most of the time when money was donated. I never used to feel happy because of the above reason. I was working back then and did not know any organisation to go all out and to be among people to help directly.

During Power of Purity Meditation – Thus Spake Mohanji

Then Mohanji came into my life in February 2017, and even though initially it was through blogs and videos (I had finished watching all his videos and read all the blogs before I physically met him), the connection was already strong by the time I met him in January 2018, in a satsang in Thrissur, Kerala. I still remember I was waiting for the satsang from December onwards and was so excited about meeting my Guru for the
first time. My soul was rejoicing and my heart was so expanded in happiness as if I had found a treasure for which I had been waiting many lifetimes. I remember praying nothing should go wrong and that I should reach Thrissur from Cochin on time. Needless to say, my experience there was so profound all throughout the satsang.

From the time I met Mohanji, he has fulfilled all the true desires I had sincerely wished for. It was during the 2018 Kerala floods that I joined Ammucare, and we as a team could reach out directly to many needy people in distress and  I was feeling so happy because that innermost desire to serve was getting fulfilled. It is only his grace and experience from Ammucare that helped me to start doing the ACT activities here in Ethiopia from the very first week we landed here. People here warned us saying Ethiopia is not safe but I was not a bit scared as Mohanji had assured us that he is always with us and was taking care of us. He has always said,

“When you start taking responsibility for the well-being of the world, the world takes responsibility for your well-being too. Life is always reciprocal in kindness.”

There had been a phase just before we moved to Ethiopia when I was completely down due to an incident and I was constantly praying to Mohanji to guide me so that I could accept the situation with awareness and let it go. I was not able to forget the incident and every morning I was waking up with a heavy heart as I was more or less free at that time as my husband had just left for Ethiopia and we were to move there in a few months’ time. As usual, Mohanji always listens and one day, a week later, I got a request to write on the Mohanji Consciousness page. I was not sure if it was my cup of tea but I agreed as I felt I will be more close to my beloved Guru’s consciousness. I started writing and within 2 days the weight of the incident started reducing and within a week I forgot all about it even though it had been a serious incident of betrayal which had broken me down completely. I still feel it was a miracle that had shifted my mind from it. I became my normal self again in a few weeks’ time and it had lost its importance in my life. Without any struggle from my side or any self-talk, I had accepted the incident even without my conscious knowledge as a part of my karma and moved on.

During Power of Purity Meditation – Thus Spake Mohanji

Now, I’m coming to the present incident that happened recently during the 41 days of PoP sadhana. I love to do the Power of Purity meditation as it makes me feel so blessed and rejuvenated. Moving to a new country had forced me to do the meditation alone. Since I knew the importance of group energy during meditation for blockage clearings, I had an ardent desire for PoP to be conducted online as a group. When I enquired back then in December 2019 before the Covid-19 situation, I came to know it was not possible to do online sessions. Last month in June 2020, suddenly one day, I came to know that 41 days of PoP sadhana was going to be done online and my joy knew no bounds. Another desire in my heart was thus fulfilled in a few months’ time. Immense gratitude to Mohanji for making this impossible thing possible.

Registered with South Africa Mohanji Acharyas, my sadhana began beautifully. About 15 days into the meditation, I started getting severe headaches. The migraine was so bad that even with migraine painkillers like Ibuprofen, it would not go away. It would fade for some time, and come back with more severity. After each meditation, my third eye would throb and the headaches became unbearable.

Mai-Tri - Mohanji Foundation

Since it was getting impossible to bear the pain daily, I asked Mai-Tri practitioner Savithri Vasudevan for a Mai-Tri session. After the session, she told me a lot of blockages across lifetimes were getting cleared through the body. She told me once the blockages are cleared, I will be fine. But I was finding it so difficult to get up in the morning for the EBC routine with the head throbbing badly. 10 days continued this way and since it was not getting any better, I asked her for another Mai-Tri session. She said it is not required and later told me that Mohanji had asked her to work together with Mohanji Acharya Preeti Duggal. Preetiji, immediately messaged me saying that I should take Baba’s Udi in water till the headaches subside.

I did not have Baba’s Udi with me but have read many experiences of devotees in the Sai Satcharitra that it is the faith and devotion that matters. So I chanted Baba’s Gayatri 9 times, and drank the water mixed with the Udi I had with me. I got engrossed in my work and later within an hour or so found that my continuous headache of 10 days had reduced considerably. I was feeling very happy but decided I would continue to
take the Udi every day till I recovered completely. The next day, I got up and found my headache had reduced further and it was only like a very feeble heaviness in my head. Within 2 days, I was completely fine and my headaches had disappeared. They have never returned after that day and I completed my 41 days of meditation successfully. The miraculous power of Baba’s Udi cannot be explained in words. It was Mohanji who introduced Sai Baba to me and told me the power of Udi when my son had been sick. I have known all great Masters of the tradition only through Mohanji. I also started reading the Sai Satcharitra every Thursday. It was only with Mohanji’s and Baba’s grace that we could visit Shirdi for the first time last year.

Sai Baba – Experiences With Mohanji

I feel so grateful for all the blessings and grace that has been showered on me and my family and my only wish now is to always remain surrendered to Mohanji and the Masters of the Tradition so that I can move steadfastly on the spiritual path. Koti koti pranams to the lotus feet of Para Brahma Swaroop Mohanji.

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.

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.

CROATIA

Guru Purnima in Split, Croatia with meditation Power of Purity and Mohanji Energy transfer & Aarti. We all felt the grace of pure energy of our Tradition. 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.
Jai Brahmarishi Mohanji! Love, gratitude and surrender to the Feet of Guru.Sholane Surjoo

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 !!

Rishiver. Pranaam!!! I cannot forget the day you majestically walked into my Life. I then understood the meaning of the maxim that when the time is ripe, the Guru will himself appear before you. My deep salutations n reverence at your Feet. I know nothing more. Happy Guru Purnima Father
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🙏❤🙏
