Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 4, January 2019

“Understand. I never leave anybody who trusts in me. Faith in God and Guru is the ultimate protection. Selfless Service is the ultimate insurance. Surrender with gratitude is the ultimate prayer. Remember this always. Doubts are your enemy. Confusion is what they leave you with. Alienation and separation from truth brings people down who doubt themselves, others, gurus, and gods. Stay with the truth. Do what’s right. Always be grateful. Always display compassion and kindness. The world is what we make it to be. Live compassion. Love unconditionally. Be Mohanji always.” – Mohanji

With our limited minds we see glimpses of the various divine dimensions of Mohanji and attempt to describe what we have experienced as testimonials/stories. These are expressions of pure love from devotees who feel Mohanji’s compassion, love and protection when they are truly connected to Him.

Mohanji says, “One of the basic reasons for our existence in the body is expression, so you must express. That’s the way you are. As you are, you express, that’s important, so you need to express yourself honestly, not in a conditioned way.”

With deep reverence, gratitude, humility and love, we offer Mohanji Satcharita 4 at the divine feet of our Guru, Brahmarishi Mohanji.

These stories when read with faith and conviction would inspire the reader to also experience the divine qualities of Mohanji.

In this chapter, there are nine more stories of Mohanji’s Divine grace & protection.

Divine Grace & Protection

The following verse from the Guru Gita depicts the protection offered by a Master. Guru Gita verse 43:

Yadanghri-kamala-dvandvam, dvandva-taapa-nivaarakam

Taarakam sarvadaa padbhyah, Srigurum pranamaamyaham.

which means:

I salute Shri Guru, whose two lotus feet remove the pain of duality and who always protects one from calamities.

This Guru Gita verse rings a bell for every devotee of Mohanji. Being omnipresent, He is by the side of the devotee during difficulties in a flash. Numerous devotees all over the world have felt his presence and protection. He showers each one of us with His grace, whether we remember him or not. What is required from us is establishing the connection with His supreme Consciousness.  He, through his compassion and unconditional love carries us through the journey of life. In each of the nine experiences shared here, all experienced the unseen hand of protection only on retrospection. What appears as an individual incident actually unfolds with grace and protection of the Master. We need to surrender with faith and awareness and rest assured that the Master takes care of each one of us. Read on and enjoy these true experiences of people in various situations.

So here are the nine stories shared by devotees on how they have felt Mohanji’s grace and protection at different times.

1. Miraculous Hues In A Pendant: Ruby Nair, Virginia, USA

Aum Gam Ganapataye Namah!!

Jai Mohanji!!

During this Virginia Retreat in August 2018, we were introduced to various accessories: Mohanji Protection Pendants, Mohanji Protection Bracelets and Mohanji Vibhuti Boxes. As I am not a big fan of any sort of jewelry or accessories and don’t wear any, I did not want to purchase them.

When the products were introduced, I asked for the price and Mohanji casually and laughingly said “$100 for Ruby, since she is from NY.” Later that evening, I ended up buying two bracelets and did  spend about $100!

A couple of weeks later, I was speaking to someone about something random and the person suggested that being a Mai-tri healer, I should keep some Mohanji Protection Pendants with me in case someone with a need may come by. Around the same time I happened to chat with Manu about something else and he shared that he has been wearing his necklace pendant every day since the retreat but takes off the bracelet at night. So, I felt I should purchase the necklace pendants for my family as well. I decided to do this because the Mohanji Protection Bracelet was at my altar most of the time and I wore it only during meditations or when going somewhere special, since I didn’t want it to get dirty or break during my house work. However, the necklace on the other hand, will always be with me and it is small enough to not get in my way.

 

On October 4th, 2018, I received some Mohanji Protection pendant necklaces in silver, and as soon I got them, I placed one in front of Mohanji’s  picture on the altar, thanking Him for bringing them to us. I was just happy that I was wearing the necklace all the time now and didn’t have to worry about taking it off and getting it dirty etc. For the first two days of wearing the new necklace (Mohanji Protection Pendant), I felt very tired, exhausted and ran a low-grade fever. I found that few others who recently purchased the bracelets had experienced something similar in terms of energies, so I just took it as a sign of purification. However, out of the four members in the house, I was the only one to fall sick.

On December 1st, after about a two-month time period, I was just glancing at my pendant and I noticed how dark it had become. I was under the impression that silver never changes colour when it is on a person. So, the first thought was, “How is this even possible?” All the negative thoughts started popping in my head and in a confused state I went to my husband and looked at his pendant.

It was not at all dark, so I just took the pictures of both pendants and sent it to Manu to hopefully get some clarity and find out if others who have purchased them had noticed something similar. As we were discussing the colours, Manu noticed that my Mohanji pendant, even though it was dark, had hues of violet/blue in the third eye, on the neck and on the shawl, and it also had shades of gold on it. In my husband’s pendant, it was as if the pendant itself had a golden tone with no other hues. It would have gone totally unnoticed if I hadn’t noticed my own darkened pendant.

I was reassured by Manu that he would find out from Mohanji and get back to me. So, the next morning I got three text messages from him. The messages were from Mohanji and they were as follows:

  1. “Purification. Warding off negative effects from the body.”
  2. “Colours signify presence. Golden is me, my tradition, sign of who is protecting.”
  3. “Plus, silver converting to black or any other color is normal.”

It was also mentioned in the text that when Mohanji was asked what the blue/violet tones meant, he just said welcome to my unusual world with the smiley face 😊

After receiving these messages, I was immediately calm and happy to know there was nothing negative about me that caused the silver to change colors. By speaking with Manu again, there was more clarity. Since I am a Mai-tri healer, the pendant was protecting me from the dark energies and I wasn’t even aware of it. Having this confirmation and knowing that I am always protected brought me to a safe place where I know I am carrying a part of Mohanji with me everywhere.

It is also very humbling to know how the universe works wonders and brings things into our lives to change, shape, protect, etc.

One thing I have learned in this journey with Mohanji is that whenever someone offers us any advice, especially from Mohanji’s family, it may seem small or insignificant or just crazy, we ought to listen. We miss a lot by listening to our minds. Sometimes just go with the flow as I did with the decision of purchasing the extra pendants.

Jai Mohanji!

2. The ‘Light’er Effect: Mina Obradović, Serbia

One day, I lit the oil lamp in front of Mohanji’s picture, left the lighter on the table and started doing something else. I suddenly heard the noise of something falling to the ground behind me. When I turned around, I saw the lighter burning. Fear overwhelmed me as I quickly put out the fire. Mohanji’s picture fell right next to the lighter, showing me it was Him that saved me. I was terrified, but also filled with love and gratitude at the same time. I cannot fully explain the moment. It was just miraculous.

pic 3

The object falling to the ground was our God (Mohanji, Jesus or Buddha…) keeping me safe.

They have shown me one small way in which they are protecting me, but who knows what kind of things they deal with on daily basis for us? And still, they don’t ask for anything in return.

I am endlessly grateful to our beloved Mohanji, all the Masters, Gods and Goddesses for always being present and protecting me.

 Love to all.

3. The Miraculous ‘Impact’: Ana Raos, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

I would like to share something I experienced today. I was on my way to Bijeljina, where Devi was conducting Yoga Nidra. After travelling for about 20 kilometres, I suddenly lost control of the car. Due to rain, the road was slippery and there might also have been some oil on the road. The wheels began to slide and the car rolled down the bushy hill, slowed down and was miraculously stopped by some thick shrubbery. My heart was beating very fast but I was not injured. There was not a single scratch or bruise, absolutely nothing. The car also was not damaged, without a scratch. A wrecking truck got me out smoothly from the shrubbery.

I couldn’t make it to for the Yoga Nidra program, but I felt very, very grateful and blessed that everything ended like this. This is another proof of how blessed and happy I am to be under Mohanji’s protection. He is always with us. I also consider this as a gentle warning to drive more carefully and not to be in a hurry. Never again will I hurry. Thank you, dearest Father for your love and blessings. You saved my life – not only in this accident, but every single day in many different ways. Love you deeply.

Jai Brahmarishi Mohanji!

4. An unseen protection: Samantha, South Africa

We had just got back from our Rishikesh retreat and I was helping my son move houses. I had taken a picture of our Mohanji and Babaji with me for their prayer altar. While I was there, my son hung up a wall mirror on the passage way wall and an hour later we just heard a crash. The mirror had fallen and broken. I am very superstitious, but this time I remained calm and just said to them that Mohanji has a reason for it to happen. The following week, my two year old granddaughter ran into the same wall and hurt her head. Had the mirror been there, it could have caused a serious injury! When my son called me to talk about the incident, the first thing he said was, “You did say that our Mohanji had a reason when the mirror broke….!”

“When gratitude becomes the essence of our character, excesses vanish, ego vanishes and anxieties vanish. Gratitude supports faith. Gratitude provides equanimity. Gratitude reinforces unconditional love. If you have to choose one quality in life, choose gratitude. It is worth it. Everything else will fall in place by itself.” Mohanji

Om Shree Gurudeva Datta!

5. Grace of faith: Punam Kapoor, Canada

This was the time in my life where I (my soul) was supposed to leave this body to move on to the next stage in my soul’s journey. Due to this time period, my spine shifted, disconnecting from my vital organs. I felt as if I would collapse any minute.

poonam

With Sai Baba’s grace, there was an energy healer with whom we made an urgent appointment for the same evening. It was praying for Mohanji’s grace. I called out to Him for help, as I had a sinking feeling inside. I could hear a voice saying, “Your work is done.” I had chest pain.

I sent an urgent email to askmohanji@mohanji.org asking for guidance.

The healer straightened my spine and connected my vital organs to the meridians which stabilized me. However, my energy levels were too low.

I called a Mohanji family member to send me healing and she reminded me that, “Punam you are a healer yourself, try healing yourself.”  That night, I sat in my puja room and prayed to Mohanji to give me strength and to heal me. Saying this, I put my hands on my heart and solar plexus chakra.

After a minute, which I took to settle down, a strong but soothing warm current started flowing. This gave me the same feeling as Mohanji giving me Shaktipath. The next morning, I felt so much better and had the energy to go back to work!

 

“Faith leads. Faith soothes. Faith reinforces. Faith nurtures life. Faith elevates life. Faith stabilizes life. Faith Liberates man. Faith increases with experiences”

My gratitude and koti pranaams to Mohanji.

6. Protection from theft: Nazeema Botha, South Africa

mohanji_with_nazeema

I would like to share an experience that happened on 31st October 2018 after Suvarna and I got back to Sandton from the airport. We both requested Uber cabs to take us home and the phone app located a pick up spot as they are not allowed to pick up at the station due to taxi violence.

We walked across the street to wait for the cabs to arrive and as we stood on the corner, a security guy called out to us. But I was hesitant, as number one, who knows if he really was a security person, and number two, I don’t trust anyone after dark. So I told Suvarna not to go as we didn’t know who he was and what he wanted.

We both stood with phones in our hands and checking the arrival time of the cab drivers. I was holding the phone with almost no grip; it was basically just resting in my palm. A few minutes later, a guy walked by and grabbed my phone, but it fell back into my hand! It was as if this guy’s hand was moved away from the phone, and it had fallen back into my hand!  A car suddenly pulled up, he jumped in, and they drove off.

I was stunned and shocked at the same time. But most of all, I felt the protection of our Guru. Thank you Mohanji for your grace and protection. Pranaams to your holy feet…

“The power of purity immunizes from the rocks and shocks of daily existence. The power of purity radiates. Purity empowers.  Purity strengthens. Purity liberates. It brings gratitude into existence.”

Jai Mohanji!

7. Divine Grace to Animals, the perfect example of Love and Compassion: Subhasree, London

Mohanji’s love and compassion for all beings of Mother Earth has been seen on many occasions.

Mohanji on animals, nature and compassion

https://qawithmohanji.wordpress.com/2015/07/06/passion-for-compassion/

I was fortunate enough to witness one such incident during my trip to Serbia in November 2017 and I would like to share it here.

As a part of a charity initiative, ACT Serbia brought  approximately a metric ton (around 2204 pounds) of  dog food and visited a dog shelter run single handed by a lady. More than 350 abandoned, now rescued dogs are sheltered there. Mohanji was with us during  this visit.
We reached the shelter and soon a little puppy walked up to me. I picked  him up and noticed that he was shivering.  I cuddled him. Comforted, he started licking my face and throat and soon buried his face in my arms and dozed off!

puppy1

Food bags were being unloaded and everyone was carrying them inside (including Mohanji).  I wanted to lay the puppy on the floor and join the group in their effort, but the puppy wouldn’t budge! So I continued to hold him while he enjoyed his nap! Mohanji noticed this, came near me and commented that the puppy and I appeared to  share a bond and a past connection; hence my trip to Serbia all the way from London to share my motherly love. We laughed, but deep within, I felt that it was true. I already shared a close bond with this puppy.

Mohanji then said, “It’s a very good dog. It needs a home. See if someone can adopt it and take it home.” At that point in time, I wished I could take him home! I have been resisting my son’s demand to bring a puppy home as a pet for years; now as I held the puppy, I wished to take him home! I even mentioned this to Mohanji, and wondered how difficult it would be to take him along in the flight. He nodded. I was determined to give him a home, even if it could not be mine. So I asked the volunteers. I even offered to sponsor this puppy if someone is ready to adopt. But unfortunately, at that point of time, no one was ready.
I kept holding him, wishing that someone would adopt him and give him a nice home.
Mohanji walked by again, this time he stroked the puppy’s head with immense love. He kept his hand on its head. The puppy looked up to him. As he placed his hand on the puppy’s head, he closed his eyes and slept, as if he were witnessing the divine energy that was flowing to him.

puppy3Then Mohanji gave him Shaktipath on his third eye. I was choked and teary eyed at this sight! I couldn’t believe the good fortune of the puppy. How fortunate was he to receive Shaktipath from Mohanji ! Even as an animal, his life was being cleansed through the process and it felt like someone very close to me was being blessed.  I was also amazed and filled with gratitude to Mohanji, for his unconditional love and compassion. It did not discriminate between  species, just as the sun shines brightly for all on earth. In the eyes of the Supreme Consciousness, Para Brahma, all beings are his creation and hence equal. Comparison and partiality lies in the human mind only.

Strangely after receiving the Shaktipath, the puppy woke up with a lot of energy and started moving around. He walked around me in a circle and then moved away. Mohanji said, “Look, he is doing a pradkshina” (circumambulation), thanking you and expressing his gratitude!” I realised all of us could learn from this little one. We left the shelter but my heart was with the little puppy. I wondered if he was going to find a loving home. After two days, I returned to London, my experience with the puppy still   fresh. I kept talking to everyone about him and hoped he would be adopted soon.

In a couple of week’s time Deviji messaged me, saying one of the volunteers (Spomenka)from Serbia went back to  the dog shelter and has indeed adopted the same puppy. Though Spomenka already had few dogs with her and had no intention of getting one more, she was moved when she heard Mohanji wants the puppy to get a home!

puppy2.jpg

I was so glad to hear that the puppy had found a home. At this thought, tears began flowing from my eyes with gratitude for Mohanji. This was no less than a miracle. He said this dog must find a home. He gave shaktipath to it. Few days later, he found a home; and in the home of a Mohanji devotee! Well I don’t know if I will ever meet the puppy again; not that it is important. Knowing that he lives somewhere in a safe home, comforts me.

Now more than a year later, I got to see the photos of the puppy, now known as ‘Zen’ enjoying in his home with mum Spomenka! The love is eternal.

My gratitude to Mohanji for spreading  unconditional love, enabling two very different beings to meet and share a few moments of unconditional love. The puppy and I enjoyed each other’s love and I treasure it forever. This is perfect example of the eternal love that Mohanji has for all the beings of Mother Earth. My heartfelt gratitude at the feet of such Master.

Jai Mohanji!

8.  Protection in all states: Sunita Madan, India

While we know about Mohanji’s protective hand shielding us always, I experienced it first-hand one night. Since 29th December, 2018, there has been a lot of turbulence in my life due to my ailing mother and her hospitalisation. I spent much of my time in the hospital. Yesterday though I was not feeling too well and I came home to get some sleep.

In my dream state, I saw dark energies coming towards me but before they could touch me I found myself screaming Mohanji’s name twice and instantly they disappeared. Then I found myself loudly reciting the Gayathri mantra. All was well and the dark energies also moved towards the light. 

The following question and Mohanji’s response are very relevant here.

Q: I dreamt of you, is it possible to connect with you even through dreams?

Mohanji : So any dream;  you interpret it as you wake up, “It’s a dream, I met Mohanji,” may not be a dream. It could be a connection which we had astrally.

Mohanji on dreams

It was a truly amazing experience. I realized we are powerful because we have Mohanji. Nothing negative can touch us when we are connected. Complete faith and surrender are the only requirements. We are all blessed. Pranaams at your lotus feet. Jai Mohanji!

 9. Grace at work: Surya Sujan, Kerala

Mohanji_school_friends.jpg

I met my school friend, Mohanji on 26th December, 2018 after 38 years. I am still in a daze that I was able to meet Mohanji, one, who I thought was beyond my reach. None from my school are able to believe this meeting happened. Since then many miracles seem to be occurring in my life! I would like to share one of them as below:

My senior officer, who I report to at work, was awaiting his promotion order on Jan 4th, 2019.  He found out that his replacement was a direct recruit; someone I did not know and one who was known to be quite rude, with no respect for age or seniority. Obviously, everyone in our office was dejected. I am the second in command in the office and I was also dispirited. I stay in Kannur and work in Calicut, which is 100 km away.  I have fortunately been coming in a little later and leaving a little early. Since I have a long commute, I was allowed this privilege and I must say I had become accustomed to this relaxed work ethic.  However, I suspected the new officer would not be kind enough to grant this privilege. I also dreaded working with him.

With all these questions and worries racing through my mind, I entered my room and saw a message from Mohanji , “Are you free to talk?” Mohanji had promised to call me back after our school reunion but had been very busy with his travel and work schedule. We started talking about various issues. Suddenly, my senior came to my room and announced that there was a new order intimating a change in the appointment of the person replacing him. The new person was none other than a friend from Kannur! I couldn’t believe what had just transpired! My anxiety and apprehension had been taken care of and additionally, I   had company for the long commute to work.

mohanji_with_surya

How did this happen, I wondered! I was completely relaxed now. When I conveyed this to Mohanji, he just laughed. But I believe I know who worked the magic!

Faith is courage. Faith is strength. Faith is power!

mohanji_blessing

All the above stories with different flavours of Mohanji’s protection only indicate the one and the same essence – Omnipresent Mohanji is always available and provides the shield of protection to all His devotees when someone reaches out to Him through thoughts, prayers or even a physical message.

The next time you sing Mohanji’s Aarati, the following lines will show you how accurately these lyrics were created!

Sankatmochan bankar, dur dukh karna,

Swami dur dukh karna

Apne bhakton ka haath, apne bhakton ka haath

thame tum rakhna, Swami thame tum rakhna

Meaning:

Being the dispeller of danger, O Guru, alleviate our misery, and keep on holding the hands of your faithful devotees.

Keys of Faith

By Moushumi, UK

Experiences from UK Retreat 2018

20180813_102741

Our scriptures state that every incident is a passing cloud, bringing with it happiness or trials and tribulations. What helps us tide over the difficult aspects is the faith in the Supreme.  Our beloved Mohanji always takes care, gently pushing these dark clouds away with the least impact on us.

This is exactly what Moushumi, her daughter Esha and husband Prabhakar have shared in this testimonial where a seemingly large problem drifted away into oblivion by the grace of Mohanji!  A strong thread of faith and surrender weaves its way through the three different experiences in the same incident!

Moushumi’s Narration:

To start with, I would like to mention that if you surrender with faith to your GURU, then your Guru takes care of you.

Here is a lovely miracle from the recent London retreat, UK on 12th August 2018. This is an experience that we were blessed with as a family – my husband Prabhakar, my daughter Esha and I.

This beautiful day commenced with Deviji’s Yoga, followed by satvik vegan breakfast and then Satsang with Mohanji. After the Satsang, we went to our rooms for tea as directed by Mohanji.

I am with you

The above written quote by Mohanji, we actually experienced it that day.

Now, let me share what I experienced.

When we went into the room, I found the lights were on, my purse was somewhere else, but I did not give it a second thought and came out. Meanwhile, the family staying in the next room were talking to someone about a theft. Hearing this, I rushed back into the room and suddenly realised as to why the lights were on, the purse wasn’t in its proper place and things were in disarray.  I noticed that my mobile, the car key and the home keys were stolen. I spoke to Vijayji (the organiser) who was already talking to someone in the main hall where Mohanji was chatting with a few people. Vijayji made an announcement in the hall about the incident. Just then, my daughter walked in and came to know that not only my mobile, but also the car keys along with home keys were stolen from the room. She started crying, as she was worried that the thieves could drive to our home and do something to her six months old pet Hamster (OREO).

Esha_with_oreo

I consoled her, and my husband and I again headed back to our room.

When I opened the door of my room again, the vibrations in the room were different – one of calm and peace. I walked in and to my surprise found that both the keys were on the top of a small tub containing a moisturizer cream, the usual place for the keys to be in! Initially, it was confusing, as the table was exactly in front of the main door and the keys were lying there on the small tub – in direct view. As I was heading towards the hall, Mohanji was coming out of the hall and he asked me directly, “Did you find the keys?” I replied in the affirmative. (I did not understand why he asked me only about the keys). He asked, “What else is missing?” I replied, “Mobile and £5 or £10.” He said, “That’s ok, first go and tell Esha that you got the car keys; she is crying.” In fact, then Mohanji himself spoke to her and I stood there speechless for a few seconds, as the realisation of the situation hit me! If there is total faith in the Guru and complete surrender, anything is possible!.

Later on, as I put the pieces together, realisation dawned that when my daughter spoke to Mohanji about her hamster, he told her that he would do whatever he could! He kept up his promise. It wasnt difficult to comprehend that He kept His promise because first of all it was Esha’s request that too in the compassion for a helpless tiny being! We see Mohanji’s love for little children, the purest forms of divine as well as the helpless animals and other beings. If it meant to do something out of way to make Esha relax about her pet Oreo, so be it. He did what He needed to. It’s needless for us to worry about how did he do that, when he was physically in the hall amongst 40/50 people? Divine answer to innocent pure souls calls, are usually unexplainable!

The entire incident happened within a gap of few minutes – going to the room for the first time, finding things stolen, talking to Vijayji, and then returning to the room and finding my keys on a very small tub. It was surprising as I am a meticulous person and particular about placing things in its correct place. The question from Mohanji asking only about the keys was even more surprising. Mohanji’s reply to Esha about her pet hamster, “I shall do whatever I can”, says it all. It was indeed a miracle!

The day we met Mohanji in December 2016, Esha connected with him instantly. Every night before sleep, she likes to watch Mohanji’s videos. When I told Mohanji about this, he said that she is very much connected to him.

Such a blessing, having Mohanji in our lives!

Esha’s Narration

My mum and I went into our room at Gilwell Park and found the lights on in the room. I just suspected that dad left the lights on in the room, as he was the last one out. My mum was a bit more alarmed than I was. I used the bathroom and then went to play with some of my friends. Meanwhile, mum went into the room to get her phone.

My friend and I were playing in her room (which was right next door to ours), when my mum came in and said frantically, “Have you seen my phone!” We responded with a no and then, with a serious/worried expression on her face, she went to ask my dad. I followed her. When dad replied no, all three of us went back to our room. Mum showed us her purse which had all its zippers open, my books were open on the bed, my toy dog was under the pillow and my mum’s phone was gone. All of us looked everywhere for it but it wasn’t anywhere.

I carried on playing because mum said I could go and play. Soon, I started feeling very thirsty, so I went into the main hall to get a drink. I saw my mum and dad talking to someone. I went over and overheard my mum saying that the car and home keys were missing. Suddenly I felt very worried. If the thieves had the home keys, then they might be able to get into the house. I thought that if the thieves were smart enough to take the keys without anyone seeing them do it, they might be smart enough to find out where our house is. I was getting worried and I started to cry. If the thieves get into the house, who knows what they might do to my pet hamster!

Mum and Dad started comforting me, but I could tell they were worried as well. Suddenly my parents were called out of the hall, but I was still crying. Some women came over and asked questions like, “What happened”, and “What’s wrong!” I told them, and they said that things are going to be OK. Then, Aunty Subhasree came over and assured me not to worry, as my mum will get a new and better phone. But I told her about my hamster (called Oreo) being at home and the thieves might be able to get into the house. Then she told me “go and hug Mohanji. Everything will be alright.” Then she took me to Mohanji who was standing a few feet away. Aunty Subhasree explained to him that I am crying because my Hamsters are at risk, since we cannot get into the home as home keys are stolen! Mohanji hugged me and said that He will do what He can. His words made me feel relaxed and I cheered up a bit. I just knew that He would make sure nothing bad happens to Oreo. The next minute, my mum came in running saying, “I found the keys, I found the keys!” I was so gleeful, and I thanked Mohanji with all my heart. When we were walking back to the room, Mohanji came up to me and said, “Did you find the keys?” I replied to him saying yes and I said, “I am so happy. Thank You, Mohanji!” Mohanji smiled.

Prabhakar’s Narration

Here’s my husband Prabhakar’s write up of the miracle that he experienced:

I always tend to carry my laptop when I go on trips.  Also, as the retreat was to end on Tuesday and I was on leave from office, I had promised my project manager that I would take a call from the office for an hour on Monday. While packing, I ensured that I included the laptop among the items to be taken. There was no rush as we were leaving the house and somehow, I just did not feel the urge to carry the laptop with me and so left it behind. The theft happened on Sunday at the hotel & my laptop could have gone missing. More than the laptop, the precious non-backed up pictures & personal documents would have been lost!

During such programs like the retreat, I always make sure not to carry any electronic devices such as the mobile with me. I put the mobile in my pocket at break time to practise the bhajan that I was planning to sing in the evening (first time ever in life, I thought of singing & wanted to rehearse!). When I returned to the hall, I realised that the mobile was still in my pocket & Mohanji had arrived by then. The mind commanded to quickly rush and leave the mobile in the room. In spite of the prompting of the mind, I did not take any action and I still can’t remember why! Had I left the mobile in the room, it would have been stolen!

The Guru’s ways of working are beyond what the mind can comprehend. Firm faith & acceptance will take us to great heights in our individual journey is my learning from this incident.

Vijay Ramanaidoo’s Narration

This is a really amazing incident! While I was in the satsang hall during the retreat I saw three youths walking towards the side of the lodge where we were staying. Then about 10 minutes later I saw then running away at great speed. I thought at the time that it looked suspicious not realising that they were the ones who had broken in (subsequently confirmed by the children who had been playing near the exit). After the satsang ended and people headed to their rooms Moushumi approached me in a distressed state about the theft from the room listing all the missing items including car keys and house keys. Esha, her daughter was also in tears. They were especially worried about the keys wondering how they would get home and into their house. Esha was worried about her hamster at home. When Moushumi went back into the room after speaking to me, she came running out again saying that the burglars had returned the keys! I was wondering what kind of burglar it must have been to take money, mobile, house keys and car keys, plus take items from other rooms, then to return both sets of keys to her room without being seen! Even if they did return them, how could they remember that it was this exact room and how would they dare enter again! I initially thought that maybe she hadn’t seen the keys when she first went in after the burglary. However the keys were placed on top of a tub of cream on the table – so visible and very easy to see. There was no way that they were there before! Moushumi also said that she is so particular that she notices any small thing that is out of place, Prabhakar said the same thing to me. It seems that this was all a drama in order to demonstrate an act of grace and increase our faith. Plus to comfort a little girl worried about her hamster! Jai Mohanji 😊🙏💜

Grace through Faith & Surrender

Real life experience shared by Devotees

Mohanji_grace

Dr. Harpreet Wasir, Preeti Duggal, Ekaterina Nestorovska and Reena Kumar share their experiences that show the presence of Mohanji’s protection and grace at every moment, regardless of His physical presence. If we have a strong connection to our beloved Guru, not only does He taken care of us but also those who are connected to us.

Dr. Harpreet’s Experience Sharing:

We begin with Dr Harpreet’s recent experience of grace and protection.

Harpreet_Mohanji_Grace.jpg

“I had three difficult cases to operate upon. A heart valve replacement surgery followed by two heart bypass surgeries. The first two patients were from Iraq who had come to us because they could not afford surgery there. Before I start my surgery, I always dedicate it to Mohanji  and also leave the results to Him after I finish.

At a critical juncture when the heart was beating in my hand during the surgery, I got a call that my mother, who is aged 80 yet an active gynaecologist, had slipped and fallen. In the middle of the surgery, I somehow managed the decision to get her to the emergency department. With Mohanji’s grace, she reached the X-ray room of the emergency department around the same time as I was leaving the operating room.

Harpreet_Mother

When my mother was on the X-ray table, all the doctors who examined her were sure that they would find hip fractures or a spinal fracture. When I reached the emergency department, I realized that I was carrying Mohanji’s eye card in my chest pocket which was highly unusual. I realized that I badly needed His presence for my cases today and, hence, had kept it. I kept the eye card in my mother’s hand before her five X-rays were due. I told her to hold it and just remember Mohanji whom she has met only once.

I stood in utter breathlessness and in complete surrender to Mohanji. I just put my mother in His care. I was in a state of utter silence and thoughtlessness, simply connected to Him. Most astonishingly, despite the doctors being sure of a fracture, all the X-rays were normal and I was able to take her home for pain management.

On reflection, I realised that I carried His card not just for the patients who came to me for surgery, but most unexpectedly for my mother too. It feels like Mohanji, being a Guru, pre-emptively knew about this event. He gave me serious patients so that I would keep His card in my pocket so that it could be given later to my mother for her protection, thus ensuring all her X-rays were normal.

Harpreet_Mohanji_blessing.jpg

As a doctor, I work with people’s lives. But I always feel that it is He who does it through me. He pre-empted all events as He always does for those who have utmost faith and surrender. It is for all of us to know that Mohanji not only takes care of the present but also of the future. Our faith is always answered.”

Jai Mohanji,

Preeti Duggal’s Experience Sharing:

Preeti_Mohanji_grace2

Preeti Duggal shares here how Mohanji’s grace was evident at a time of crisis, enabling Preeti to embark on a sacred pilgrimage as planned.  When we surrender, grace flows…

“I would like to share the rays of grace which Father always showers on us unconditionally. To attend the Bosnian pyramids pilgrimage, Preethi Gopalarathnam and I were flying from Mumbai to Frankfurt en route to Zagreb. When we reached the airport, the airline staff informed me that my ticket for the journey had not been booked. It was booked only for Preethi Gopalarathnam. The travel agent had forgotten to block the seat for me and, hence, the ticket was not booked.

It was a moment of panic for a few minutes, but as always Mohanji was our saviour. At the last moment, we had to buy a ticket which was luckily available though at twice the price. The flight from Frankfurt to Zagreb was full, but with His blessings, we found a seat in a flight a few hours later. Seated alone at Frankfurt airport, I realised how with very little difficulty, Mohanji had arranged my trip. At 2:30am in the night, He checked with me if everything was fine.  I have no words but only gratitude and love for Him. Thank you Father for always being there for me at times of crisis. I learnt a big lesson too. Never take things for granted.”

Preeti_Mohanji_grace1

Madhusudan Rajagopalan, who was a witness to this incident, added his views on this incident as below:

“This incident happened between 12:45 to 1:15am for a flight scheduled to leave at 2:55am. Look at how grace worked – they were very coolly dealing with the situation (acceptance) and planning alternatives instantly (practicality). How amazing that the tickets were available at such short notice for both legs – onward and return. Mind you, their return was from Belgrade to Mumbai, so it was a multi-city itinerary, not a plain return ticket.

Due to all this drama, they were able to reach immigration only by 2.30am and amazingly, the flight was delayed! As Mohanji always says “Big problems are solved through minor hardships” and that’s what had happened here; eagerly laid plans were not disrupted and valuable lessons were learnt about extra diligence while planning a journey;  and of course ample demonstration of how He works silently to protect us. I don’t think we even fathom how lucky we are!”

fire of awareness

Jai Mohanji,

Ekaterina Nestorovska‘s Experience Sharing:

Ekaterina_Mohanji_Grace1

Ekaterina Nestorovska states how she experienced  the protection of  Mohanji at a time when she felt vulnerable. As with many of us, this is just one of many such incidences in her life. Ekaterina’s connection and faith in Mohanji and His unconditional love and protection towards us all is shared beautifully here.

“At work today I was asked to stay late and it was dark by the time I had left. To get to the bus stop, one has to walk through a deserted road which has no lights, houses or people. It’s a well known unsafe area. As I was leaving, I felt an impulse to listen to a protection chant  sung by Mohanji and played it through my headphones. As I was hurrying to reach the bus stop, I noticed a man on the other side of the road who passed me by, walking in the opposite direction. He suddenly turned around and started following me. As it was so dark and lonely, anything could have happened and no one would have known. As he started whistling, I started repeating Mohanji’s name. I didn’t have any fear and had faith that I was protected. I, of course, had the urge to walk faster to get to the main road and to the bus stop. Once I got there, the danger was gone.

When I got home, I saw a huge dog lying at my front door. I felt as if it was a sign of protection. I went in quickly to get some food to feed it. Everything happened so quickly that I didn’t have time to think much. But it truly felt like I just have to be in the hands of Mohanji and flow with whatever comes. There is nothing else to do!

Jai Mohanji,

Ekaterina Nestorovska, Skopje, Macedonia

Reena Kumar’s Experience Sharing:

Reena_Ronit_Mohanji_Grace1.jpg

Reena Kumar narrates her experience of how Mohanji’s divine protection ensured that her son Ronit was able to sit for his exam and do well, despite a serious accident.

For me, Mohanji is sakshat bhagwaan (God incarnate). He is so compassionate and listens to his devotees. My son Ronit is very careless and casual as one tends to be during adolescence. During his tenth grade, he rarely studied. I used to be worried about his attitude. Before the exams, Ronit was able to meet Mohanji. Mohanji looked into his eyes and said “Don’t worry.” A few days later, Ronit met with an accident before his last exam. By Mohanji’s grace, his eyes and brain were fine. However, he had severe injuries to the hands, shoulders, legs and feet. Usually, no one waits for an accident victim in Gurgaon, but 18 people waited with Ronit and called us. His scooter was in a terrible condition. It couldn’t be moved but people helped me park it as my husband took Ronit to the hospital in his car. By Mohanji’s grace, I was offered water and someone dropped me home.

My son wasn’t able to study for his Maths exam as he had severe pain and went for the exam on a wheelchair. When the results were about to be declared, we were very stressed as Ronit had sat for the exam without any preparation. He got 70 marks in maths. That could be possible only with Mohanji’s grace. Mohanji had saved his year of work. Ronit told me, “Mohanji had said ‘Don’t worry’ before the accident. He was with me, Mumma.”

Mohanji’s grace was evident again on the day of the results helping Ronit with what he wanted to study further – science. In his school, admission into the science stream was impossible with Ronit’s result (71 percent). Because of Ronit’s casual attitude, the principal was reluctant to allow him to take science and said that it was impossible. My husband prayed to Mohanji and wrote to Him. Ronit and my husband waited for three hours and Mohanji’s reply came. He said “I am proud of Ronit.” At the same moment, the principal rang the bell and agreed to give admit Ronit into the science stream. She told him, “You are exceptional to get science at 71 percent.”

Such is the grace of our Master that we can neither understand nor express enough gratitude. He is infinitely kind, loving and caring. We must recognise His leelas (divine play) and follow His teachings. We should try on our part to be humble and good representatives of our Guruji. Wherever we go and whatever we do, Mohanji’s name should rise higher and higher and spread around the globe.

i am with u 3.jpg

Jai Mohanji.

Reena Kumar, Gurgaon.

The real life experience shared above, reiterates the following.

Faith can move mountains and create miracles. The divine grace and protection of Mohanji towards those who love Him is always evident. No matter what the situation or which part of the world we are in, when we ask for help, He’s always there to protect and guide us.

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

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

Ahimsa the Vegan Way - an inspiration from Mohanji

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

Ahimsa the Vegan Way 2 - an inspiration from Mohanji

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

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

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

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

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

Ahimsa the Vegan Way 3 - an inspiration from Mohanji

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

“You are my heart, my soul, my own

You are my own eternal guide

You are the one I adore

You are the sun, the moon in the sky

You are the stars that shine at night”

You are my all, my beloved Mohanji.

With eternal love and gratitude,

Shyama Jeyaseelan
