Kailash not too far!

Kailash pilgrimage 2019. Mohanji and a group of nearly 100 yatris were at Lake Manasarovar. Thousands of miles away in a small part of South Wales, UK, in the Skanda Vale ashram, NellyAnne, Subhasree and Moushumi were doing Consciousness Kriya in the presence of the Lord Dattatreya idol. Their deep connection to Mohanji and their practice of Kriya with conviction and consistency had blessed them with incredible visions and experiences!

Incredible is the grace of Guru Mandala that through these visions of Mohanji in Kailash, it was proven yet again that when Mohanji travels on a pilgrimage, He just doesn’t take people physically, He takes everyone connected to His consciousness spiritually too!

Read on to feel the power of this grace!

By NellyAnne Noronha

I had registered my application for the Kailash trip 2019 with Mohanji. However, due to unavoidable reasons, I couldn’t make it. I accepted this as divine will and decided to go with the flow. I was reassured by Preeti Duggal ji, a core member of Mohanji family, that with Mohanji’s grace and blessings I will be able to experience the entire pilgrimage despite not being there in person. This assurance reminded me of Mohanji’s words during the satsang in Pinner in 2018 (my first meeting with Mohanji physically),

“Everyone present here is not because of a coincidence, We have all been connected for many lifetimes.”

Connection to Guru and the Tradition is shown in many ways. Another form of reassurance I received was through a sudden visit to a Sai temple in Wembley. This was certainly the call of Sai Baba! The visit to the temple became very special as unexpectedly I was able to be a part of a very sacred ritual as well as I receiving a shawl that was used to adorn Baba’s idol as a gift! The following day I saw a photo of the chief Priest of Shirdi offering a garland to Mohanji at the first meeting of all the Kailash Yatris in Kathmandu. This was indeed a reminder of the statement of Preeti Duggal ji. Experiencing Kailash Yatra with Mohanji!

 

The Master continued to shower his grace when I got a chance to join the ACT Foundation team for the Skanda Vale charity food stall on the 10th and 11th of August. On the 11th of August, there was also a special function of the reunion of Lord Muruga with his consorts.

After closing our food stall, Subhasree, Moushumi and I reached the hall where there was a multitude of people already sitting and enjoying the devotional bhajans. In a miraculous way, all 3 of us got some space to sit next to the Sisters right in front of the altar. We realised this was none other than Mohanji listening to the true cries of love and showering his grace on us to fulfil all our desires. Suddenly the Swami invited all 3 of us along with the community members and a few other volunteers to participate in the special ceremony of sprinkling petals of flowers to Lord Muruga and his consorts while chanting the auspicious 108 Namavali. This was beyond the ordinary and I knew from the bottom of my heart that it was Mohanji and the Guru Mandala’s blessings for us. We were closely participating in such a powerful and auspicious ritual, while the other devotees with Mohanji were at Kailash Mansarovar! The grace didn’t stop there. We even got the chance to join the procession with fire lamps in our hands going inside the main temple and we witnessed a very powerful aarti offered in the main Garbhagriha. During this I saw several Divine beings appear as beautiful lights moving up and around, dancing to unheard celestial music playing in the background, while Mohanji was blessing the devotees on the banks of Kailash Mansarovar.

I was deeply touched and moved to tears as I went through these divine experiences. This was no less than a direct pilgrimage to Kailash! These were truly blissful and gratifying experiences.

After these sublime experiences at the temple, we decided to visit the Lord Datta temple. The place was so serene that we all decided to do Kriya sitting in front of Lord Datta. Suddenly, I noticed a light shining from the Datta idol which was then replaced by the smiling face of Mohanji.

This was the most blissful experience for me as I felt Mohanji himself reassuring me of our connection, and my presence with him and the other devotees in Kailash.

My sincere gratitude to the Divinity and the entire Guru Mandala for such grace and blessings.

By Subhasree Thottungal

11th August 2019. A very auspicious day. While Mohanji and about a hundred devotees were at Kailash Manasarovar, we were in Skanda Vale during the same weekend, doing a charity food stall. The entire Skanda Vale was in bliss in celebrating the special function of the reunion of Lord Murugan with his consorts. The function brought so much awareness of the divine presence and high energy in this powerful place. I felt Mohanji’s presence there every moment. Mohanji and Skanda Vale have a special equation, which I have realised with some divine awareness, as narrated in my earlier blog, ‘The truth beyond revelations’.

Soon after the ceremonies inside the Subramanyam temple, with heightened energy and deep gratitude, Moushumi, NellyAnne and I went to the Lord Datta’s temple. It’s almost a year (1 year on 15thAugust), since this Lord Datta temple in Skanda Vale had come into existence and Mohanji had done the prana pratishta of the Lord Datta idol! As Mohanji had said at that time, a part of His soul is inside this Datta Idol! Whenever I visit here and see Lord Datta, I feel Mohanji’s presence.

When I reached the Datta temple, I felt the urge to do Kriya there. Moushumi and NellyAnne joined in too. Kriya in front of Datta took me to a different plane altogether. As if I was transported elsewhere! And then appeared this divine vision!

The vision of Mohanji in his white attire, sitting in front of Lake Mansarovar, with lots of people seated around him. The blue water of Mansarovar with tiny waves, blue sky with white clouds showing the presence of many divine beings. Though I could see many human beings, the only face that was clear was Mohanji’s.

When I finished Kriya, for a few moments, my hands were numb. I opened my eyes and looked at Datta’s face.Such a striking smile as if Mohanji was standing there and smiling at me and saying, “You wanted to see me at Mansarovar, right? Are you happy now?”

We all knew that on this same day Mohanji was at Mansarovar with all the other devotees. Mohanji had assured us, we will be with him, in spirit. How true is that!

The vision I had during Kriya showed this through the divine communion with my Guru.

Mohanji_Manasarovar_2019.jpeg
Mohanji in front of Manasarovar, 2019

The very next day, I received a picture someone sent from Kailash, which showed that the previous day, on 11th Aug, Mohanji sitting in front of Mansarovar and devotees around him! Mohanji in his white attire! Such a resemblance between my vision and this photo proved everything! The vision during Kriya was indeed a divine darshan that Mohanji showed me sitting in front of Datta thousands of miles away, but not too far from him, not too far from Kailash. Such grace. Such love from my Guru. Words falling short to describe!

This was not all. I was reminded of such grace happening in two earlier years when Mohanji had been to Kailash. Although I was far away physically, I still had the darshan of Mohanji in Kailash. I must write those two accounts too.

August 2016. Mohanji was in Kailash with about 80 devotees. I had been following the updates regularly. Photos from Kailash were not just beautiful scenic images. They had life and were passing the Shiva tattva energy. The power was such that sitting on the seashore of Lanzarote (a small island, part of the Canary Islands in Spain, where we were on a family holiday), a small hillock just inside the sea, felt like Kailash. “Om Namah Shivaay” chanting came out spontaneously. Suddenly, the clouds above took a circular form. The epicentre lying just above the tip of the small hillock! Morning sun rays piercing through these clouds indicated definitely something divine!

At that point I had such connection with Kailash, I felt as if I was with Mohanji in Kailash. I thought, next Kailash with Mohanji, I must go.

The year passed. Kailash with Mohanji in 2017 came. However, I couldn’t go! While Mohanji and the devotees were in Kailash in 2017, devotees all over the world were doing a 24 hour long continuous chanting on 16th July 2017. In London, at my home, we were doing the group chanting, during which I had a vision that

Mohanji was standing inside Mansarovar. The water was blue coloured and crystal clear. I then saw all the Gods & Goddesses, Ganesh, Lakshmi, Saraswati and all the other Gods in the sky, showering flowers on him.

This vision was so clear and so divine. After the chanting was over, I shared this vision with everyone and expressed my gratitude to Mohanji for giving me darshan while in Mansarovar.

Two days later, a photo came in with the update from Kailash, the photo of Mohanji inside Mansarovar. This matched the vision I had during chanting.

Mohanji_Manasarovar_1_2017.jpg
Mohanji inside the Manasarovar, 2017

My heart was filled with deep gratitude to have received this darshan despite being physically so far away in London!

However, somewhere inside me, I had a slight feeling of guilt. Where did my desire for Kailash go? How did I leave this opportunity to go to Kailash with Mohanji in 2017? A few months later, in November 2017, I got a chance to be with Mohanji in Serbia and I couldn’t hold myself but to express this feeling of guilt to him. The spontaneous answer that came from Mohanji, left me speechless.

“I just don’t carry people to Kailash physically, I carry people spiritually too. You have been to Kailash with me spiritually. Your desire has been fulfilled. Hence no more desire.”

Well, what more did I need to understand?

Indeed Mohanji carried me with Him in 2016 and in 2017 too! This year in 2019, before Mohanji left for Kailash, I had no doubt, I knew Mohanji would carry me with him, along with all the other devotees connected to him. Mohanji’s message for all connected to Him,

“You are inside me. How can you be separate from me?”

filled my heart with gratitude and profound love for the unconditional love and compassion he has for me, for all of us!

Through this vision during Kriya in front of Lord Datta, Mohanji proved this yet again! Not that I needed any proof. But he knows that this naïve heart still desires every single vision of my beloved Guru, physically or astrally! His darshan makes me pure, makes me complete, liberates me from all worldly desires.

I am so deeply touched by the grace that the Tradition and Mohanji shower on me (in fact on all of us), much beyond our expectations and imaginations. My deep gratitude to Mohanji my Guru, and this sacred Tradition that we belong to!

Jai Shree Datta.

Jai Mohanji.

By Moushumi Patankar

On the 10th and 11th of August, my family and I were with the ACT Foundation team for the food seva in Skanda Vale. On the 11th, after attending the powerful reunion ceremony of Lord Subramanyam, Subhasree, NellyAnne and I went to the Lord Datta temple.

When we were in front of Lord Datta, we decided to sit down for Kriya.

As soon as I sat, I felt as if my whole body was rotating in 360 degrees. After a few moments, I saw beautiful lights; blue/light green just like the colour of a beautiful lake, orange/ yellow/gold like bright sunshine or a havan (sacred fire). I then saw many faces. The first face was of my beloved Datta swaroopa Mohanji who was right in front of us, smiling at us. And then a thought, aah so many faces along with Mohanji’s! In the end, just before finishing Kriya I saw Mohanji’s aura!

I realised the vision I had during this Kriya in front of Datta was of Mohanji with the other Kailash Yatris in front of Mansarovar! Without any expectations, without any imagination, Mohanji and Lord Datta graced me with this divine vision, so far away from Kailash.

My deep gratitude to Mohanji for filling every single moment of my life with his grace.

Nine ways to connect with the Guru

who-is-mohanji

By Shyama Jeyaseelan

 

Mohanji says, “The human mind needs forms to associate with. This is fundamental. It recognizes forms and connects to forms. Human constitution uses all faculties such as body, mind, and intellect to connect to the chosen form. And when the connection through faith increases, individual personality takes a back seat. The individual starts to merge with the object of worship. Non-duality happens. When oneness takes root, often the need for any of the individual faculties that the individual used for the primary connection also becomes redundant. Everything dissolves into oneness.”

In May 2018, towards the end of the Kriya Intensive programme and Volunteers Meet in Bosnia, some of us were sharing our experiences with Mohanji in the main satsang hall. Seated in a circle, heartfelt feelings and emotions were shared, all of us totally absorbed in Mohanji’s love and compassion. When it was my turn, I sang a bhajan that was close to my heart, one that I sing often at home to Mohanji. The words are simple yet so beautiful.

You are the centre of my life my Lord, You are the centre of my day

I open my heart to You and pray for Your grace

I feel the power of Your love my Lord, I feel the power of Your love

I open my heart to You and pray for Your grace.

As I finished, Deviji who was also seated with us said with a lovely smile, “I am looking forward to meeting all the bhakti yogis in London soon.” A visit by Mohanji, Deviji, and little Mila was already planned to take place in August 2018 and we were all counting the days for their arrival with much excitement, looking forward to having them with us.

During their stay in London, many of us had the privilege of spending some time with Mohanji, Deviji, and Mila. So many beautiful moments, full of grace and joy, filled our days. Those few days flew by quickly and it was time to say good bye too soon. Afterwards, as I read the blogs and testimonials from others, I realised how each of us experienced Mohanji’s presence and love in our own unique way. We may have all been with Him at the same time during the same programme or event, but each one of us experienced Him according to our own constitution, perception, and eligibility.

During this visit, every moment I spent with Mohanji gave me a different emotion to the feeling of devotion. I recently read a beautiful article on ‘Nava vidha bhakti,’ the 9 forms of devotion, and realised that I had experienced these beautiful emotions and recognised them as such, purely because of Mohanji’s grace.

It is said that of the different types of yoga, bhakti yoga is the easiest way to reach the Lord in the Kaliyuga. When devotion and love for the Lord are pure, free from conditions, desires, and ego, transformation happens within. We become the instrument of the Lord. Through writing this article, I pray that my love for Mohanji becomes deeper and purer. May devotion fill my days and bring positive transformations within me.

The 9 forms of devotion which we feel and experience towards our Guru or God are shravanam, kirtanam, smaranam, paada sevanam, archanam, vandanam, daasyam, saakhyam, and aatma nivedanam.

1. Shravanam (Listening to the names and glories of God)

The first in the nine forms of devotion, shravanam is to listen to the divine glories of our Guru or God. As we listen and contemplate on His words, qualities, and divine plays, our mind merges with the thoughts of divinity. With easy access to social media, listening to satsangs, bhajans, and songs, seeing messages on whatsapp or Facebook were all tools for me to listen or read about Mohanji throughout the day. Listening to His teachings, seeing His messages and reading others’ experiences were all ways for me to connect to Him while being away from His physical presence. Planning His visit with the UK team was exciting and that itself was a satsang too. As I constantly listened and contemplated on Mohanji, love and reverence subconsciously grew and I also realised that these thoughts were purifying me in tangible and subtle ways.

As we cultivate a yearning to listen to His glory and teachings with faith, and as we practise what we have learnt, the act of shravanam helps us evolve in the journey of spirituality.

2. Kirtanam (Chanting the glories of God)

In the second form of devotion, kirtanam, one sings the glory of Guru or God with devotion. Whenever we recite or chant His name and sing His glory from the heart, we automatically become joyous; our hearts are filled with love, not just for our dearest Guru, but towards all those who are around us. Continuous chanting has the power to elevate us.

At the UK retreat, we had bhajans at the end of each day. Even if He was tired, Mohanji would stay and listen to everyone’s offering of love to Him, have a satsang with us afterwards, before retiring to His room. One of the highlights was to actually listen to Mohanji sing ‘Garuda Gamana’ with one of the devotees. We were all mesmerised, listening to His beautiful voice, giving such joy not only to the devotee He sang with but to all those who were assembled there.

One evening, we chanted the Sri Rudram in Mohanji’s presence. This chanting is done in praise of Lord Shiva and I was reminded of chanting it at the holy banks of Manasarovar and also during the parikrama of Kailash. Lord Shiva who was silent and majestic in Kailash had taken the form of the compassionate and loving Mohanji who was physically in the room with us.  Although thousands of miles apart, the innocence, divinity, and purity that I felt was the same in both occasions, and I felt so blessed to have Mohanji there with us while chanting. None of us wanted these evenings to end!

 3. Smaranam (Remembering God)

 Smaranam is the third form of devotion where one constantly remembers their Guru or God and His divine qualities. It is said that namasmarana, the constant chanting, and remembrance of the divine will help us attain liberation. Remembering and chanting the name of our loving Guru, remembering His compassionate form, seeing divinity in nature are all ways of remembering Mohanji’s presence in my life.

Satsang with Mohanji

Whether it’s chanting the Mohanji Gayatri, Healing Gayatri or singing devotional songs/bhajans, I feel that simply knowing/remembering that He’s always with me, keeps me connected to Him, making life the joyous journey it is. As faith and devotion increase, surrendering my actions to Him becomes second nature and from small miracles to large, I feel Mohanji’s presence throughout the day. As acceptance and patience increases, pain and suffering are greatly reduced and I am able to face life with equanimity more and more.

 

4. Paada sevanam (Serving the Lord’s feet)

In the fourth form of devotion, paada sevanam, one worships their Guru or God by surrendering all actions at His feet and serving Him. Recognising that a true Guru is connected to the supreme consciousness, worshiping the paaduka (sanctified sandals) is also a form of paada sevanam.

In the Indian tradition, people often refer to the Guru or God’s feet as paada pankajam (lotus feet), as they are described as soft and beautiful like the petals of a lotus. During this visit, we had the incredible opportunity of doing Paada puja to Mohanji’s feet. It was such a sacred event and all those who took part felt so blessed. Mohanji explained the significance of this sacred ritual and graciously allowed us to wash, decorate and do aarati to His feet. It was a dream come true, something many of us had yearned for but had not expected to happen.

Guru Paada Puja

Bowing down at the feet of someone shows humility and lack of ego. As we bow down at the feet of our dearest Guru with an innate sense of surrender, we recognise His divinity and pray that He will grant us protection and lead us from the many bindings of life to freedom in existence.

5. Archanam (Worshipping God)

In the fifth form of devotion, archanam, one makes an ‘offering’ of love to their Guru or God. It may be ritualistic worship where food, flowers, and many other materialistic items are offered. It can also be singing bhajans, chanting the sahasranamam (1000 names), ashtothram (108 names) or doing aarati, which are all forms of archanam. When the rituals are combined with internal meditation and awareness, our hearts and minds are purified.

 

 

While Mohanji was in London, I had the opportunity to make some of His meals along with a few other devotees. Cooking is usually not my passion, but making food for Mohanji is a blessing I will always cherish. I can only imagine this would be how Yashoda felt when she made food for Krishna! Mohanji’s enjoyment of simple food is lovely to witness. The times I spent in the kitchen gave me such a close connection to Mohanji. Nothing else existed apart from Him. In those moments I was not a parent, wife, sister or daughter. There was no personality, just an amazing feeling of not existing as a person with ego, etc., but being an empty instrument for divinity to work through. This state of perpetual meditation which seemed beyond my reach seems a little closer to attain now, a state I should attempt to be in, throughout the day.

My archanam or offering while Mohanji was here in the physical form for a few fleeting days has enabled me to surrender and offer all my actions to Him even when He’s physically not present. Expressing our love for Him and connecting to Him with mind and heart, all our actions become sacred when offered at the feet of the Guru.

6. Vandanam (Offering obeisance to God)

The sixth form of devotion is reverential prayer, vandanam, to our Guru or God. Prayer is a language of the heart and when expressed with sincerity and love, it becomes an intensely personal process which elevates us.  There are many types of prayers; of gratitude, for the well-being of others, for peace, etc.

Prayers and chanting have become a part of life and I realise Mohanji purifies us in subtle ways when we undertake these actions with the correct intent. Whether it’s chanting, singing or simply talking to Mohanji in my mind and seeing answers to my questions or thoughts through someone or something, my faith in prayers has increased manifold. Whether it’s an internal dialogue or an outward expression, prayers make me feel more close to Mohanji. I share an incident here which showed me again He knows everything that we think, say or do, that we always live in the presence of divinity.

On the last night before Mohanji’s family left, I was feeling so sad. I sent a text message to the host family saying, “Tomorrow morning will be the last meal with Mohanji for a while.” I had not asked to help make breakfast as I knew someone else was bringing food in the morning but went to help with other things. Just a short time before leaving for the airport, Mohanji said, “Let’s have some uppma.” I thought He was joking as He knew someone was bringing breakfast and said, “Mohanji, are you serious?” He replied with a smile “I never joke about food.” As we rushed about in the kitchen with last minute preparations, I realised that Mohanji knew my thoughts and feelings and in His usual compassionate way, asked me to make something to make me happy. Always so caring and loving, He spreads joy in every possible way. That morning we had two different items for breakfast, blessed by Mohanji!

 7. Daasyam (Serving God as His servant)

In the seventh form of devotion, daasyam, one aspires to be of personal service to their Guru or God. With no sense of inferiority, one yearns to serve the Guru as well as His devotees. Only those who are trustworthy, truly humble and are not self-centred are given this boon and it’s amazing to see Mohanji’s interaction with such beautiful people. He’s so relaxed and happy in the midst of those who love Him unconditionally and serve Him selflessly.

Serving Guru in any way is a blessing of lifetimes
Serving Guru in any way is a blessing of lifetimes

Hanuman’s devotion to Lord Rama is a great example of daasyam. I have heard Mohanji speak of Hanuman with so much love and share here a story He narrated a couple of years ago. When Valmiki completed the epic Ramayana, Sage Narada who read it said that Hanuman’s Ramayana was better. Valmiki was not happy that a ‘monkey’ had also written a Ramayana and wanted to find out if it was indeed better.

Valmiki found Hanuman in Kadali-vana (plantain grove) and the Ramayana inscribed on the broad plantain leaves. Reading it, he found it to be exquisite and unable to help himself, started to cry. When Hanuman asked if it was that bad, Valmiki replied he was crying because it was so beautiful and no one would read his Ramayana once they read Hanuman’s Ramayana.

Hearing this Hanuman simply tore up the banana leaves and said, no one will read Hanuman’s Ramayana. You wrote it so that the world remembers you, but I wrote it so that I remember Ram.” Hearing this story of Hanuman’s pure love for Lord Rama in Mohanji’s mesmerising voice was simply amazing and it brought tears to my eyes.

Even now, when I think back to this moment, I feel so humbled to be a part of Mohanji’s family, receiving His love and grace, and pray that such intense devotion and purity wells within me too.

8. Saakhyam (Developing friendship with God)

In the eighth form of devotion, saakhyam, the devotee considers the Guru or God as their friend. An example of this is Lord Krishna’s childhood in Vrindavan. He spent the days playing with his friends and taking care of the cows. His friends would chase him while playing, massage his legs while resting and feed him food with love. Their love for Krishna was complete. Mohanji is also our true friend, who accepts us as we are, with no judgements or expectations, interacting with us with pure love.

In the loving embrace of Mohanji
Loving embrace of Mohanji

It is always a joy to see Mohanji relaxing at times, away from His back to back programmes. One evening after Mohanji had retired to His room, a couple of us were talking about a song that Mohanji really likes and we were listening to it on you tube.  The next morning while having breakfast, He started talking about the song as if He’d been there during our conversation! Then He asked us to play that song and started to sing along with Sonu Nigam (a famous Indian singer), His deep voice perfectly complementing the singer’s higher pitch. Very sweetly, Mohanji would explain the meaning of the song to me between singing the verses, as I was the only person there who didn’t understand the language. It was a privilege to see Mohanji’s carefree attitude and joyous singing. How blessed we are to have the eternal friendship of our Guru.

9. Aatma nivedanam (Total surrender of oneself to the Lord)

In the ninth form of devotion, aatma nivedanam, the devotee surrenders completely to the will of the Guru or God with no trace of ego. The devotee if completely filled with devotion, gains the knowledge of his true self and becomes one with the divine and all aspects of His creation. When we offer everything to our Guru with equanimity, we become His instruments, and the Guru takes complete care. He knows what is right for us, all we need is trust and full faith.

Mohanji Energy Transfer
Being Mohanji’s instrument – In the consciousness of Mohanji

Mohanji is a living example of simplicity and humility. He teaches us by being a true inspiration. Mohanji encourages us to serve with love and humility, not just those who visit Him or are in His fold, but all beings of the earth, to the best of our capacity. By cultivating love and serving the needy, we realise the existence of divinity in all forms.

 

Taking up one or a number of these paths to connect with our beloved Guru, understanding the path and following it with faith and consistency, we can make our lives purposeful and meaningful.  We become the pure instruments of the Guru, spreading unity, purity, and divinity to the world.

“Worshipping the Guru, considering him as representing the Lord Almighty or personification of the Lord is definitely the path of those who are inclined to Bhakti or devotional path of spirituality.”   Mohanji

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 5, February 2019

Higher than the highest. Larger than the largest. Bigger than the biggest. Harder than the hardest. Deeper than the deepest. Smoother than the smoothest. Heavier than the heaviest. Lighter than the lightest. Still beyond stillness. Bliss beyond happiness. Detached beyond perfection. Unknown and unknowable to human mind-matter (mind, ego, intellect), eternally liberated exists the REAL one, the unfathomable SHIVA. — Mohanji

Every disciple’s end goal is absolute dissolution, merging completely with Shiva. One of the most purest path to achieve this is through bhakti yoga and absolute surrender to Guru. In absolute surrender, there is no existence except that of the Guru. However, it is not easy being with a Guru, a living master. Being with the Guru, the disciple burns a lot of samskaras every moment, along with burning the ego, burning the intellect, burning the entire mind matter. When the existence of the disciple is completely burnt, he turns into pure ash. That’s when Shiva wears the ash and thus the disciple merges completely with the Guru, the Adi Guru – Shiva!

While being on this path of complete mergence with Shiva, through the pure connection with Mohanji’s consciousness, devotees feel the sanctity and purity of Shiva. Their awareness of Mohanji’s immense grace makes them realise the divine truth behind each experience taking them a step forward on the path of complete annihilation – mergence with Shiva!

For this month’s Mohanji Satcharita we are bringing out 9 stories that highlights Mohanji’s divine grace. We are grouping these 9 stories into two categories:

  • Divine Healing & Protection

  • Divine Leela (play)

Hope you enjoy reading these 9 stories which are shared with utmost sincerity and honesty by devotees across the globe. We believe that while reading these stories, every reader will also feel the vibrations that will allow them to relive the same experiences too.

So here are the stories of Mohanji’s grace.

Divine Healing & Protection

Mohanji says, “Surrender your thoughts, words and actions at the feet of your Sathguru, whoever it is, with deep faith and belief that he represents the Supreme Father, Parabrahma. Do good to the world and your fellow beings, so that you live the teachings of your Guru. Express your Guru in your daily life. Be one with your Guru. Be one with His consciousness.”

Below are three sincere testimonials from devotees who have experienced that with faith and love in their Guru or God, amazing grace and protection is received.

1. Inner Cleanse Through Mai Tri – Ami, South Africa

I was at Dubai International Airport. It was a long wait for my connection to Bengaluru. I was on my way to the Acharya Training Programme – Level 1. I said to myself, “Great! Wi-Fi is available. Finally a quiet moment to write down and widely share my awesome experience with Mai-Tri healing!”

Mai tri healing.png
Divine Healing through Mohanji’s grace

I’ve already shared my experience verbally with many around me, but it’s important to write it down too, as memory has its peculiar drawbacks.

I had enlisted for the Acharya Training and had a bee in my bonnet about intensely cleansing and purifying myself on gross and subtle levels, in preparation for the training. Heavy energies had made themselves very comfortable within my body for a very long time. I decided that I had carried them long enough. They had to go, now! I was really fired up about cleaning up and clearing out – all of it! With these thoughts in my mind, I set up a series of Mai-Tri sessions with Sjarn Day Mansoor.

Mai Tri Healing : “Removal of the blockages is only meant to facilitate the actual primary purpose of receiving healing, which is to grow spiritually and eventually merge with the Divine. The main reason for healing is to recognize who you truly are and to identify yourself with the Divinity that you intrinsically and truly are.”

My first healing session was a brief one and was during our South Africa Midlands Retreat in November 2018 with Mohanji. On a physical level, I did not see much change. I had to wait for one long month for the next session. Sjarn had relocated to Durban from Johannesburg. Since I wanted continuity with one Mai Tri Healer, I made the trip to Durban. The second session too did not yield any obvious results. We planned the third and fourth sessions to be held during the summer, when she would come to Johannesburg for the summer holidays. It was during these sessions that I felt a significant transformation taking place. These were at the Mohanji Centre, Randburg.

Mohanji – When you have deep faith it can cut across karma and heal you

During the third session, I was literally out of my body for most of the healing. At the end of it, I asked Sjarn what had happened. She replied that it was very difficult for her to explain, because Mohanji had quantumly lifted away layers upon layers of stored karmic densities at once!!! She added that Mohanji worked with focussed laser intensity and had removed age-old layers of baggage and heaviness from the deepest levels, both gross and subtle.
When it came to my base chakra, I wonder how to express it; my Beloved Master swept out a heavily built, muscular male energy figure! Sjarn described him as having thick and bushy eyebrows. She said he gave her a funny look and also stared at Mohanji. Then he was whooshed up in a powerful column of White Light. Apparently my maternal grandmother had also dropped by and she seemed rather anxious. That concluded session three.

The best was yet to come. After session three, a thought came up about my right knee. I had a strong feeling that my knee was energetically bound. When I walked, my right leg was always almost half a step shorter than my left, as though it could not move forward.
So in session four, I made a request to Mohanji via Sjarn to break the lock on my right knee.
Mohanji did that. The effect was quick and also tangible, especially when I did kriya after that Mai-Tri healing session. Since my initial initiation into Kriya, I could not use my right heel for a specific Kriya posture. Kriya is secret and sacred, so I cannot describe the process in detail. However, I do wish to say that when I practised Kriya, a day after healing session four, I was overjoyed to find that my right knee was quite flexible. The most beautiful part, in my viewpoint was that for the very first time since my Kriya initiation, I was able to use, quite easily, my right heel as required for that specific posture in the Kriya process.

I’m deeply humbled and utterly grateful to Mohanji for the momentous healing taking place within my bodies through Mai-Tri; my deepest gratitude to Sjarn too for facilitating the healing sessions. I also find that the Kriya posture is getting easier to do with each session. Words fail to describe how monumental this change is for me. It’s my Mai-tri miracle.

I am thrilled to share my incredible experience on the Power of Mai-Tri Healing. All I can say is, “Thank You again my beloved Master Mohanji for the mighty power and blessings of the physically measurable Mai-Tri Healing I’ve experienced.”
Also of significance is the fact that I conclude writing my testimony in the flight, on my way to Bengaluru for the Acharya Training and during the powerful eclipse of January 21, 2019.

2. Healing Through Meditation : Rekha & Kishore from India

This is a testimonial from a couple of devotees who facilitated the POP meditation at the Adyar Cancer Institute, Chennai on 13th January, 2019.

What appeared to be our regular POP meditation session was met with surprises as usual. The experiences that we have at this place always teach us not to take anything for granted. Just 8 people attended today’s session at the Cancer Institute. Two women (a mother and daughter) walked in early. As we spoke to them, they shared their experience of having attended a POP meditation 6 months back with us.  The young girl had been diagnosed then with 4th stage cancer and the doctors had given up hope. The tumour had spread from the intestines to her throat and she was administered chemo just to help her bear the pain and ease her difficulty in breathing. The mother and the daughter attended the POP meditation with immense faith and continued the meditation on returning home. They did it as a meditation focussing on their breathing. After 6 months, they were back for a check-up as she had a small tumour near her stomach.

The diagnosis has been that the lungs and throat are completely clear now to the surprise of the doctors.

They also felt cleansing was happening at a deep level and wanted to continue it as long as possible. The mother who once thought she would lose her daughter is so happy at the turn of events and has immense faith in her God. The daughter connects with Jesus and is at peace. She feels her breathing has improved and although she finds it difficult to breathe deeply, she is consistent in her practice and is positive that she will come out of this ordeal. They expressed their sincere gratitude for Mohanji.

We feel so blessed to be instruments in conducting this POP meditation and our hearts overflow with gratitude at our Guru’s leela.

Jai Mohanji!

3. Mohanji, The Compassion Incarnate! : Neelu, India

With utmost gratitude at my Master’s lotus feet, I would like to share how Mohanji saved my 11 year old son’s life and prevented a similar situation for me.

Mohanji on Faith in Guru

Last Saturday (2nd Feb), at about 9 pm, I got a call from Hyderabad that my maternal Aunt, who was closest to me from my mother’s side, had passed away. She had been suffering from an acute lung disease for a few years, but she was under Mohanji’s protection. I had been praying for her since I got connected to Mohanji 3 years ago.  At the end, her exit was smooth, without much pain due to His grace. I wanted to go to Hyderabad from Delhi to have a last look at her. My younger son and I went, leaving my elder son Sreeshu with his father. With His grace, air tickets were arranged quickly and I was to leave early in the morning of the 3rd. Sreeshu complained a lot because he was not accompanying me. It was the first time for him to be without me for a whole day. I somehow convinced him and went to Hyderabad. While I was attending to the last rites of my Aunt in Hyderabad on the 3rd, Sreeshu suddenly developed an illness; he vomited, then felt very drowsy and stopped taking food. He was just lying on the bed and wasn’t talking much.

When his father called, I thought it was just a normal stomach infection and fever, which would sort itself out in a day and we decided to take him to our family doctor the next day. I just asked Mohanji to look after him till I return, as I had my return flight on the 4th evening. And He did really look after Sreeshu well.

On the 4th morning, he was not better and when he was shown to the doctor, the doctor conducted some preliminary tests, and said he was afraid Sreeshu might be having Swine flu symptoms. Sreeshu also had very low oxygen saturation levels, almost 60%. His nails were also turning blue; suggesting lack of oxygen in his blood. Oxygen should be above 90%. Immediately he was shifted to the emergency care of a big hospital. While listening to all this in Hyderabad, I couldn’t believe this was happening. I asked Mohanji, “You were taking care of him, but what is this?” Still, I didn’t understand the seriousness of the situation and how Mohanji was taking care of my son, as I didn’t completely understand the importance of oxygen levels, at least the percentages. But after he was admitted to the emergency, and there when he was tested again, his blood saturation levels rose from 60% to 90% … Just like that, in half an hour. Then I understood it was Mohanji’s grace that saved my child from a serious issue. He was admitted into kids ICU and was put on IV fluids and medicines and was stable. But my parents and I were still very worried about him in Hyderabad. Also, I had a two and a half hour of flight journey with my little son, and I was to take a cab from the airport in the night at 9 pm to the hospital. That was the first time I was traveling alone in a cab at night, that too for 30 km or almost an hour and half.

Mohanji on gratitude

I surrendered everything to Mohanji and asked Him to take me safely to my son. The flight journey was smooth as my little kid didn’t make a mess, as he always does while flying. I got the cab, was praying to Mohanji incessantly during the whole drive. Whenever I closed my eyes, I could feel Mohanji sitting beside me.

I reached the hospital safely and met my son. He was very delighted to meet me. He was missing me a lot. Till then he was lying drowsily, but when I came, he was energised suddenly. I understood, as Mohanji was in me, His energy was working.

The whole night I sat beside him chanting and praying. The next day at 5 am, he got up and said, “Amma, I am feeling better now.” He was hungry. His functions were becoming normal, thanks to Mohanji, who graced us with this miracle. But still I was hoping that his final Swine flu result would come negative. I couldn’t understand that the ordeal was over, and even if the result was positive, he was becoming better. He had no fever, he was able to eat at least something of what he was given, and he was shifted to a normal room on the 5th evening.

That day, I started feeling feverish and was having body pains. I thought it was just due to lack of rest and continuous travelling and took some medicine. But the whole night of the 5th, I couldn’t sleep due to the fever and body aches. The next day, Sreeshu’s final report came and it was positive. I was very worried. I thought there would be more hospitalisation. But the doctor said as he is feeling good, we can go home and continue the medicine at home. When I was checked up for my condition, I was also under suspicion for that disease, and I was worried a lot again, because it would be very difficult to look after my kids if I got admitted into the hospital. Bur strangely they said I can continue the treatment at my home and they didn’t even bother to test me further. They took for granted that I was positive for that disease. But I was still so scared and worried and I messaged Mohanji. He replied that He has already reduced the intensity of my disease and asked me to relax. After this wonderful reassurance, I really did relax. Then did I understand how He had averted so much of the seriousness and pain for my son and I, protected both of us as a mother would do to her small babies.  He has given us a fresh life; we owe our every breath to Him.

Now my son is ok. He can join school from the 14th of Feb. I am still going through a lot of weakness, but He is helping me do the needful to my family and to Mohanji’s mission.

Only by His Grace, I am still able to create and post 8 daily quote posters on India page, manage other postings on that page, and also on two other country pages. Till now, I didn’t miss even a single day in spite of all these turbulences. Just the will is mine; He shows me the time, space and provides me the energy to do my job. If you take one step, He takes you 100 steps forward. I hope and wish earnestly, that I will serve Him like this till my last breath.

Koti koti pranaam at your lotus feet, my Maalik.

In eternal gratitude always.

4. ‘Love’ly Healing : Revathy, India

I would like to share my daughter’s and my experience during a Mai-Tri healing session. On 13th January, with blessings from Guru Mohanji, I gave healing to my daughter Prajna, who is 11 years old. Initially, she was a little confused about the healing process as she was not aware of it. She had a lot of questions such as ‘how long will it take, what will happen if I open my eyes accidentally during meditation.’ I assured her that the healing is done by Mohanji and I am just a humble instrument. Once she was convinced, we both got ready and lit the lamp in front of Mohanji’s photo. I commenced the healing. As soon as I put my hands over her head, I felt immense energy flowing through my hands and I didn’t feel like moving my hands any further. I felt her tears rolling down, while the process continued. There didn’t seem to be any obstruction or heaviness. At the end of the powerful session, we both hugged each other. She hugged me so tightly and said “Amma, Mohanji is hugging me. This is not you; I can feel Mohanji hugging me.” Hearing this, I too felt overjoyed and tears started rolling down my cheeks. We were in total bliss for the next few minutes.

Then she shared that she saw a beautiful ball of light during the healing. The ball was transparent and light was coming from it. She also felt golden lights coming from the edges of the ball. She was so happy after doing the healing and she understood very well that it is only through Mohanji’s grace that she is healed completely.

Divine Grace

Divine Grace_Mohanji on awareness

“I wish I could have a cup of hot soup now!”  “I wish I could be with Mohanji.” Similar wishes run through our minds each day. We take these to be ordinary occurrences and do not pay much attention to it. Many times these wishes (big or small) are granted too! In this chapter, the devotees have shared some wish fulfillment ranging from the ordinary to the extra ordinary. These throw light on the various dimensions of our Master, Brahmarishi Mohanji. Our Parabrahma not only listens to our words and requests, He reads our thoughts irrespective of the distance and fulfills them immediately. Distance is never a problem for Him. Physically, He may get someone to fulfill it or He may travel astrally to be with the devotee and satisfy the wish. There is not a single place where He is not present and listening.

Every prayer, every wish is answered in various ways. Some may appear very subtle while others are very obvious. What we need to do as devotees is to be aware and conscious of our prayers and wishes and its gratification.

Read on and enjoy the miraculous ways Mohanji performs to fulfill the wishes of His devotees. It could be something as ordinary as eating a papad, a child’s innocent wish of watching TV or a higher wish of getting darshan.

5. My Kalpavriksh – Mohanji: Sreeja Ranjit, Kerala, India

I woke up to the most beautiful day of my life-19/1/19 which I will cherish for ever. I feel very fortunate to share an experience in my life where our beloved Guruji ensured He is forever with us…

Mohanji_with Sreeja

My husband had suddenly landed a job in Ethiopia and was scheduled to leave by the middle of January 2019. It was too sudden, hence my plans to be in Palakkad during Mohanji’s visit in December could not materialise. We had less than a month to go with a huge pile of things to take care of; including some promised visits with family and house construction work to be completed in a speedy manner. Amidst this chaos, I was happy we were meeting Mohanji at the Satsang in Thrissur on 27th December, 2018. Guruji showered his unconditional love on us and ensured that our forth coming visit to Shirdi was taken care of without any hassles. My son Rahul is deeply connected to Mohanji but was meeting Him for the first time. He was a bit nervous meeting Mohanji, but Mohanji’s assurance that “I will always be with you” made him feel overwhelmed with happiness.

The sad part was that we had to go back soon and I missed all the other days I could have spent in Mohanji’s physical presence. Seeing all the pictures on Facebook made me sad but I consoled myself thinking that Mohanji always says, “Do your duty.” Then I came to know that Mohanji would be coming back again for the 5th pranaprathishta celebrations at Shirdi temple, Palakkad  for three days (18th,19th  and 20th) in January. Unfortunately, the dates coincided with my husband leaving for Ethiopia and a family grihapravesham (house warming) in my husband’s house. I was feeling extremely low thinking about the dates clashing with my personal events.  

With such sad thoughts, on 18th January, I started reading Subhasree’s testimonial about Guruji’s grace being bestowed on her and her husband on the New Year. I felt they were so lucky and blessed and immediately I wished to at least hear Mohanji’s voice. It had been a secret wish to speak to Guruji over the phone on my birthday. Little did I know that my desire was soon to be fulfilled. My birthday on January 19th dawned and it appeared as any other day till about 8:30 am. Just then I got a call from Vasudevan Swami whom Mohanji lovingly calls as Thantriji. I took the call and he said, “One minute please, hold the line.” My heart beat stopped, for even before my beloved Guruji said hello over the phone, I knew my prayers had been heard and my beloved Parabrahma had taken time out to call me. My joy knew no bounds. I re-live that moment every day even now. I do not know if I missed any part of the conversation as I was in ecstasy and was floating on air. Guruji was full of concern about us and asked how Ranjit was doing in Ethiopia. He told me not to worry and He will take care. All I know is every word he uttered was precious. I had to pinch myself many times to see if it was a dream or a reality! Mohanji ensured that we were taken care of in spite of his busy schedules.

A Shaktipat from Mohanji that takes us to a different level!

Thank you Mohanji, for your eternal love and grace. 

Koti koti pranaams at the lotus feet of my beloved Guruji!

6. Ever Flowing Grace : Dr. Nikita Naredi, Pune

He knows it all…
Of the many miraculous experiences which keep happening in my life because of Mohanji’s presence, the one I am going to narrate is special. Although this incident happened last year, it needs to be shared because experiences and miracles never become old; they have divinity in them; they are a reflection of our faith and surrender to our Master, Guru and God..
I feel the protection He keeps bestowing on me. He certainly means it when He says I am walking with you !

When Mohanji visited Pune last year, he had agreed to stay at my place. Long back, I had expressed my desire that he should bless my home by staying with us the next time he visited Pune. He granted this wish and blessed us.

My husband and I were very excited and started preparations for his arrival. Three days before his arrival I got a call from Rajesh Kamath that 5 more devotees will be accompanying Him. Since we wanted everyone to have a comfortable stay, we wondered how we could accommodate everyone in our house. It occurred to me that our neighbouring flat was empty. Hesitantly, I called up the owner ( I did not know him at all) and requested him to allow us to use his house for a couple of days. He agreed, and we were delighted! We were supposed to pick up the keys two days later. But surprisingly, our neighbor asked us to collect the keys the next day itself and so we did. An hour later we were informed that Father (Mohanji) would be arriving as planned, but those accompanying him would arrive that night itself. We said to ourselves, “See His leela…. He made arrangements for everything; a house, as we felt it will be difficult to accommodate every one in our flat, house keys handed over much earlier, even before the guests arrived! Everything was perfectly orchestrated.” We were simply amazed at the divine play in progress!

The house had not been used for some time. So we came together to clean it and made it ready for our M family members. It was comfortable for them and us too.

Mohanji_woth Nikit_3

Mohanji finally arrived and He was in Pune for 3 days. They were the most beautiful days in my life. All M family members from Pune and the ones who had arrived earlier were basking in His love and happiness.

There were Satsangs and with Father we visited places of power and energy, like Baba Jaan Samadhi and Jangli Maharaj Samadhi. It was joyful to eat meals with 10 to 15 people. In fact every meal was Prasaad. One of the devotees commented they considered themselves fortunate for the opportunity to spend time with Him. Mohanji’s response was, “I have called all of you to experience love and not me!” Bhajans, Aarti, Satsangs and sharing experiences filled the house, making it a temple and what we experienced in those 3 days was pure love and bliss.

https://qawithmohanji.wordpress.com/2015/07/03/unconditional-love/

The reason I share this incident is to express how Mohanji fulfills our pure desires while also making arrangements for its smooth execution. More importantly, He showers unconditional love on us and makes us understand what love really feels like.

Thank you Mohanji for this lovely experience and for your ever flowing grace!

7. The Bestower: Reena Kumar, Gurgaon, India

Infinite gratitude Mohanji! You always listen and take care of your devotees.

By His grace, my husband, daughter and I have been fortunate to attend His retreats. I had an intense desire to be at the Kumbh with Mohanji along with my son. My son is in his teens. He is in Grade 11 and his examinations are in February. So I thought it would be tough to go in February and I surrendered my desire at Mohanji’s feet. Mohanji is so compassionate and caring; He listens to every thought of the devotee. After five days, my husband suggested that my son and I should go on 13th January for the Kumbh. I couldn’t believe it as my son could now attend the kumbh and get back to study well for his exams in February. Mohanji made it possible for both of us.

My son wanted to ask Mohanji on how to concentrate in his studies and about his mood swings. He got answers in the Satsang. My son was having shani dasha (planetary effects of Saturn). When my son went for a dip at the Sangam with Mohanji, my loving Guruji did jaal abhishek (pouring water on the head) for my son. My son shared that he felt very very light and relaxed.

Mohanji showers his grace on all of us in different ways. Now my son’s concentration has  improved and mood swings are not there. Our Mohanji is vighnaharta (another name of Lord Ganesha).  Mohanji can make the most impossible things possible. We just have to surrender at his feet with unwavering faith.

When we were at the Kumbh, my daughter was at home with my husband.  When he went to office, she felt bored and she was desperate to watch the television. However, the TV was not working and my husband had no time to get it fixed. She was almost in tears and she prayed to Mohanji deeply,”You are God and You can do anything, Mohanji. Please I want to watch TV.” She said that Mohanji came out of the photograph and repaired the TV. She was so happy that the TV which was not working for the last 3 days started working. She called me and asked me to share this incident with Mohanji. The next day when we were about to leave, Mohanji called us and I narrated the TV incident to Mohanji. Mohanji smiled and said, “If a child is crying and praying to me, I always listen.”

Grace of love_Mohanji_Reena daughter
The grace of Love!

One more thing I would like to share. On the last evening at the Kumbh, Mohanji took on a father’s backache after he met with an accident. The child was praying to Mohanji for his father and Mohanji took that backache. No words can describe his compassion and the extent to which Mohanji can go for the sake of his devotees. He is our ‘Sankat Mochan’ (another name for Lord Hanumanji). We can never ever express our gratitude sufficiently as our Guruji gives us much more than we can imagine and gratitude is such a small word. Our gratitude can’t express His compassion which is infinite and beyond the mind.

Infinite gratitude every micro second, dear Mohanji  for everything. We should never allow our monkey mind to wander. Mohanji is a living God. Silently, He constantly blesses and fulfills wishes. Never ever underestimate and doubt His grace. He delivers the right thing at the right time. Just surrender at his lotus feet with unshakeable faith.

Jai Jai Mohanji, always at your lotus feet!

8. A ‘Wish’ful Of Food: by three devotees

Here are small experiences of three devotees on how Mohanji listens to us every moment and fulfills our wishes…nothing is too big or too small.

A Story Of Papad: Subhasree Thottungal, London

Mohanji Global Family Meet
Mohanji Global Family Meet

The story of the Papad incident happened at the global meet in Allahabad. We had our lunch break and every one was enjoying the scrumptious food that was arranged very lovingly by Preeti Duggalji. The lunch was a full Indian menu with chapatti, rice, dal, curry, papad etc. While I was having my rice, I noticed that I had already finished eating my  papad. I had a thought of getting up to fetch another one. But feeling  shy or mere laziness, I didn’t get up. Suddenly Barbara walked up to me, handed over a papad and said, “Father gave this for you.” I looked up, startled. Mohanji was sitting at a table, far away, having His lunch with someone else. He possibly couldn’t have seen my plate without the papad! I was speechless and a bit shy too that He heard me. He actually heard me!

papad

Well no need to say how happy I was to receive this prasad from Him and I enjoyed the rest of my food.  This incident again proved that He always listens to our thoughts whatever it may be! There is no delay, no postponement in fulfilling our wishes, and responding to our thoughts. Such is the way our “Avadhoota in Jeans” works.

During my presentation at the Global Meet, I shared this incident with the group. Mohanji said,

“I did this to show you that I am listening to you every moment”. 

Mohanji_global meet_grace.jpg

Thank you Mohanji for fulfilling our wishes with unconditional love and compassion. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

A Sweet Tooth: Padmaja, USA

During the Acharya Level 1 training, there was a tasty, sweet dish served by the loving hosts. I got very little of this dish as I was in the last group of people having lunch. I had a desire to have more of the sweet. Next day, a similar kind of sweet was served during lunch and needless to say, I  got double of it than others. It didn’t take me much time to understand who fulfilled the desire of my sweet tooth!

A Treat Of Ice-cream: Vidya Iyengar

On our way back to Haridwar from Badrinath, my mother-in-law and I spoke about the desire to have the pista ice cream again in the same hotel where we were supposed to lodge that night. Mohanji was not even in our bus physically. To our surprise, for dinner, we were extremely delighted to see the same ice cream served as dessert. I went and spoke about this to our dear Maamu there. He had a smile on his face and conveyed that the dessert that day was supposed to be a rice pudding which suddenly got spoiled. So they had to serve this ice cream.

We were all smiling as we knew whose leela it was!

9. Faith In Grace : Punam Kapoor, Canada

I would like to share an enthralling experience that amazingly happened on Dattatreya Jayanthi.  Mohanji not only heard my silent prayer but also fulfilled it and showed me His and Lord Dattatreya’s presence in our home!

Mohanji_with_Punam and Nalin
The incredible grace of Mohanji!

Last weekend, while attending to our daughter who was in the hospital emergency, Nalin caught an infection. He suffered from severe cough, chest congestion, head and body aches.
Nalin’s recovery took time. The weekend when we were supposed to attend Dattatreya Jayanti prayers at Mohanji’s Ashram arrived but he had not completely recovered.

The previous day we had gone to pick up medicines from someone who came from India. On our way to their home and back, Datta Bhawani kept playing in the car. It was on auto repeat, but curiously enough, we did not set it up thus! We knew this was an indication of the blessings of the Guru Mandala and Lord Dattatreya. I had a feeling that this was an auspicious sign, one foretelling us of a divine experience.

Mohanji – The difference between blind faith and full faith

Unfortunately, I also caught the infection and felt dizzy with head and body aches.  Thus, both of us were unable to go to the Ashram.

I was heartbroken. My first reaction was to wonder why this happened. I asked Mohanji, “Did I make a mistake, do you not like me, how is it that I could not go to the Ashram?” and so on. After sometime, I reluctantly accepted the fact that I was unable to go to the Ashram to attend the puja and the prayers.

Soon, pictures were posted on Mohanji Canada group, which made me feel even more disappointed and gloomy as I had missed it all. All I can say is my heart was at the Ashram, thinking of Mohanji. Then I prayed to Him and said, “Mohanji, you say you are always with me. Would you please send me Prasad from today’s puja? “.
I reached out to my phone to call someone and request them to bring me Prasad, but I did not call. I made multiple attempts to call, but stopped because I did not wish to trouble others.

I tried hard to move on and started doing dishes to distract myself. I was almost done when I got a call from Nina that she and Bhupinder were coming to our home soon. I quickly turned on the kettle to make tea. Just then the doorbell rang and Nina and Bhupinder were at the door.

Welcoming Mohanji
Welcoming Mohanji – in His presence or without presence!

They came in; it was such a pleasure to see them, especially since they were coming back from the Ashram.

They both handed me a tray of rice and a bag of Prasad. This was from the prayers done at the Ashram.

Oh my God! I stood still ….I could hear Mohanji’s voice ringing in my ears, “I am always with you “.

I rushed to my puja room where there is life size picture of Mohanji, which He had autographed for us.
I could hear Him say,

“I am here always, I love you both!”

I said, “Mohanji my heartfelt gratitude, we both love you!!” and I could not stop repeating,” Thank you Mohanji ,Thank you Gurudev Datta, Thank you Sai Deva.”

Mohanji showed me His presence in our Puja room and also fulfilled my desire of getting Prasad from the Ashram, as we were unable to go to the Ashram for Datta Jayanti prayers.
After seeing off Nina and Bhupinder at the door, suddenly, Nalin said “I do my job” in a voice as if Mohanji was speaking!
Can you imagine the vibrations and the excitement I felt? It was as if I was floating!

Jai Sairam! Jai Gurudeva Datta ! Jai Mohanji

Conclusion:

These nine pearls are truly an eye-opener for each one of us. The experiences may seem simple but it proves how the Masters hear each and every wish/thought of the devotees and fulfills it. Mohanji is so full of compassion and love, His heart melts when a devotee reaches out to Him. We need to watch our thoughts and words too as the Guru takes on all our pains and suffering. No experience is big or small and each experience is significant from a larger perspective. This Satcharita of experiences should lead us towards introspection – an introspection of awareness and gratitude.

Here is a verse from the Guru Gita (verse 72) that explains how the Guru gives us not only all the knowledge, but fulfills all our desires and gives us liberation too.

Jnaana-sakthi-samaroodhas,

 tattvamaala-vibhusitah,

Bhukti-mukti pradaata yas,

tasmai sriguruve namah.

 

Meaning:

Salutations to Shri Guru. He is firmly established in the power of knowledge and is adorned with the garland of tattvas. He grants worldly fulfillment as well as salvation.

We conclude this month’s Mohanji’s Satcharita with a quote from Mohanji on Shiva Tattwa (principle) :

Shiva is beyond explanation, notion, understanding or even awareness. Shiva is THE BEYOND.

— Mohanji

Mohanji_Shiva_the beyond
Shiva is the BEYOND

 

||Jai Brahmarishi Mohanji||

Timeless Leelas

By Sandra Sankar, South Africa

|| Om Shri, Bhagavan Shri, Brahmarishi Mohanji Namah Om ||

|| Om Namo Bhagavate Sada Shivaya ||

It mattered not if one was resting or working, there was a prevalent feeling of time racing past. Feeling besieged by the need for urgency, there arose a desire to speed up everything. The periods of ‘thoughtlessness’ were growing longer. Coming out of states of emptiness is unsettling at first. The conscious mind tends to become fearful and fights right back. It starts to find reasons for the sudden lapses in time and memory. Nothing made sense except the connection to the ALL-KNOWING SELF, whom I lovingly refer to as beloved Mohanji

Mohanji in deep contemplation in Mother Nature

The mind seemed to be in stasis for longer and longer periods. Absorption with daily life and the people connected with me seemed to be the furthest from my mind during these loops into Absolute reality.

In this world, we were prepping for our home-schooled son’s final exams when Mohanji was due for a visit to South Africa. Still there was no sense of urgency, no fear, no connection to the importance of exams unlike previously. All around me, the ‘noise’ of life went on as usual. Everywhere I looked people were jostling with each other. So much absorption with ‘my this, my that.’ The only thing I effortlessly connected to was beloved Mohanji. Still do.

In hindsight, the only shiver of apprehension I did feel was when reading the dates announced for Mohanji’s visit to South Africa. Smack bang in the middle of our son’s final exam schedule! My heartbeats thundered in my chest. A very big test? My heart cried out ‘Mere pyaare Mohanji! Am I  going to miss meeting you when you are going to be here in person?’ Such anguish and yearning at the thought of potentially missing meeting Mohanji. What to do? Yes, was this a test? Yet that decision was made quickly. All outcomes were surrendered to Him.

Mohanji arrived in the country. I saw pictures of Him on Facebook arriving at the airport in a bright yellow shirt. My heart jumped for joy. Inside I was jumping up and down in anticipation like a little girl. Our light of lights was finally here! When I do meet Him this (second) time in person, it was going to be the very first time that I set eyes on Him, really ‘knowing’ who Mohanji is. There are simply no words to explain the thrilling exhilaration of meeting Parabrahma or Supreme Consciousness in human form. By this time, my son had started writing exams but I kept the timetable close with me to work out how we could make an approximately four-hour return day-trip to meet beloved Mohanji in Durban during that period.

Our beloved Mohanji family had already called many times to ask when we were coming to meet Mohanji. It was tough explaining the reason for our delay. It just got too much to bear. Mohanji was live on Facebook at a local event in Durban. Everybody around Him looked deliriously happy, being so close to Him at long last. In utter frustration at the circumstances that kept us away, I put my hands on Mohanji’s face on my cellphone and cried like a little girl. In that second, I heard His voice in my head saying ‘I am with you.’ Instantly pacified, I calmed down becoming quiet and peaceful. No overthinking about how I heard His beautiful voice gently reassuring me. Just calm and quiet inside. Inside where it is always peaceful.

We did eventually make a long day-trip to Datta Tapovan ashram in Westville, Durban. My son and I drove down enveloped in a bubble of giddy happiness. We arrived too early yet didn’t mind. After a while, I had walked out of the ashram (monastery) for a moment and as I looked up there was our beloved Mohanji walking towards the entrance! Baba! Heedless of being in a sari, I instantly fell to my knees, then prostrated from the ground and remained there. My third-eye and palms pressed firmly on the ground. Time stopped!

When I did try to get up, my lower legs just refused to move. I felt rooted to the ground. As it turned out, I had troubled beloved Mohanji and Milica to help me getting up. It was hard to think coherently. I struggled to stay focused enough to remember to thank Mohanji for His hug saying that the hug was also for a lot of bhaktas (devotees) around the world who specially messaged me for this darshan (seeing a Master). I thanked beloved Mohanji in all humility and awe for the innumerable divine leelas (play) experienced by the global family on the Facebook group  ‘Mohanji Consciousness.’

Mohanji just smiled gently and confirmed He reaches out to many people globally through the group. Yes indeed, there are no coincidences. If we are meant to be where we are, we will be. All sincere prayers are always answered. Although many do not openly write about it as English is not their first language, everyone continues to experience Mohanji’s beautiful leelas in some way.

For some, terrible physical or emotional pain was averted, others experienced divine contact and still more, direct healing during meditations. Many others reached transcendental states of bliss listening to Mohanji Shiva Kavacham, chanting Mohanji Gayatri Mantra, looking at His eye-card or picture. Their heartfelt expressions poured out so much awe, gratitude and humility to our Mohanji. Jai Baba Jai!

In the meantime, I returned to the Ashram for Consciousness Kriya initiation, a day before the Retreat. It was overwhelming as we were going to be initiated into Kriya after almost a year of training with beloved Deviji. Kriya Shaktipat as Mohanji explained, was going to be the only one we were going to need for the rest of our lifetimes. We learnt that Consciousness Kriya is a sacred rocket to liberation. Mohanji also gently reminded us that we are the path, the journey and the destination.

We were ecstatic as realisation dawned about the magnitude of this moment of Consciousness Kriya initiation. Standing in line for Shaktipat (Energy Transfer), I tentatively held onto my flower, fruit and dakshina (offering) money when suddenly, waves of energy surged through exactly half of my body. Mother’s Shakti energy always makes me dance. By the time I reached Mohanji’s feet to kneel for His sacred Shaktipat, it was hard to come back to full cognizance or awareness. As Mohanji performed Shaktipat, a deep silence settled within me.

Safe to say I managed to bow down at His divine lotus feet before returning to my seat. It didn’t end there. As I settled into my chair, I became aware of tremendous waves of energy still cascading through my body that it took a little longer to assimilate. Somehow there was also a feeling of completeness. The careful balance and poise of Shiva and Shakti reached an equilibrium. Full integration. Stabilisation.

Next day we drove up to the beautiful KwaZulu Midlands for the Calderwell Retreat. There were majestic wild horses near the entrance as we drove up the driveway. This heralded the promise of many divine leelas to come. Joy, joy, joy. Finally spending uninterrupted time with mere pyaare (my loving) Mohanji. Just joy. The main part of the hotel was quiet because we were early again. Somehow, I found myself in the beautiful rose garden outside. Kicking off my shoes, I lay down on the grass under a big shady tree looking up at the azure blue sky.

The colours of nature seemed more intense. It was also quieter than usual. My body seemed to settle into the soothing comfort of Mother Earth’s lap. As I lay there, I became aware of what can best be described as ‘roots’ growing from my body into the earth. A sort of grounding, it seemed. Felt more like merging into Shakti Maa. Oneness. Not sure how long I lay there in a timeless state of no awareness.

Next morning was our first meeting with Mohanji at the Retreat. Whilst we waited, I went to check on the ‘goldfish’ who told Mohanji two years ago that they could hardly breathe because the owner had not cleaned the pond in a very long time. 

This time the pond sparkled with vitality and the goldfish were numerous and very active. Undoubtedly, because they knew their Mohanji was back! The skies again, were very blue and the golden sunlight felt crisp and warm. A dapple of sunlight that fell on me felt like Mother’s soft gentle caress. After a deep refreshing night’s sleep, we were ready.

Not long after Mohanji began the satsang (sacred gathering), we began to feel very sleepy. He told us not to stop for anything but return to our rooms and sleep for an hour and then return for the afternoon . If I thought I could check my phone, it was not to be. I literally dragged myself up to my pillows and immediately satsang fell into a deep sleep. Lots of hectic incomprehensible dreams blitzed past: then ‘click’ my eyes opened and it was exactly an hour of being in a deep sleep state. Soon we had to return for the afternoon satsang. In fact, as it turned out, every one of us experienced the same sleep and awakening sequence. Awed at the magnitude of such a synchronised intense causal cleansing, we were all quiet.

Mohanji confirmed that when we are in dream state, it is easy to burn lifetimes of baggage. ‘It goes fast’ He said! Needless to say, we spent the first few days struggling to keep our eyes open, dealing with aches and pains that seemed to pop up from nowhere and experiencing intense personal cleansing from lifetimes past. Such are the divine leelas of our beloved multi-dimensional, intergalactic, beloved Master. I was learning fast to recognise that it was Mohanji’s grace that relieves us of the burdens we accumulate during innumerable lifetimes. At best, I was simply awed at how blessed we were to be there with our beloved Master.

Conscious Walking with our beloved Mohanji was another eye-opener. The skies didn’t look promising but He soon took care of that. His Grace showed us the new techniques to maximise and harmonise our energy’s output and input. We had walked up to a little island attached to a large pond. As Mohanji reached there, a tumultuous consternation broke out amongst the wild ducks in the water. We all soon filled that circular space as they settled down near Mohanji at the water’s edge.

During the Conscious Walk up to the island, I suddenly felt myself speed up and take a position in the centre of the group. There was no conscious intention from my part to do that. My thoughts had slowed down  to almost nothing during the walk. It was only later when I thought about it that it became clear. Mohanji then told us to sit down on the ground and close our eyes as He spoke about connecting directly to Mother Earth’s energy. At first, I found it hard to connect but as I registered that thought of discomfort, all my fingers dug hard into the earth. Then as I connected, the disquiet inside settled. Mind became empty. Later many others also testified to amazing experiences with the strong Shakti energy they had experienced there.

As we walked back up the hill, Mohanji asked us to stop and look back at the very spot where we had connected with Mother Earth.  He pointed to the energy vortex that  had formed there. At first, most of us struggled to see it. Mohanji then advised us to use our subtle vision by looking through the slits of our eyes. It was an overwhelming sight. We learned that every time we connect to Mother Earth in this way, we create a vortex of power that regenerates and rejuvenates all of nature in that space. 

When I looked back at the island from a distance there was a vortex of white light going up into the sky.

Mohanji mentioned that we are beings with incredible abilities. It was awe inspiring to hear this. Again, we were silenced by the magnitude of our experiences. Needless to say, we all experienced many timeless leelas during the Caldwell retreat. 

Milica already wrote about the bees that filled the rooms next to Mohanji. They later all died together. I previously shared Mohanji’s story of the Hadedas (big grey birds) who protected the area of the hotel from other entities during our stay there. All is the grace of our beloved Guru of all of nature. Hari Om Tat Sat, Jai Guru Datta!

During the satsang, Mohanji quoted a line that literally jumped out at me.

“When we do not ask – Shiva happens.”

It resonated strongly with me having come with no expectations.

“Watch, witness, let go.”

I learnt this is how we empty ourselves.

“Doership causes karma.”

I learnt we accumulate painful karmic baggage by holding onto things or relationships. There is already too much emotionally charged ownership and attachment in the world. This belongs to me, myself and I. Nope. Everything is Mohanji, Mohanji is everything. We are all Mohanji.

We may be emperors of nothing, yet at the same time we are everything. Super Beings with an unimaginable power for goodness and connection to the Source. Best not to waste precious time dwelling on why we forgot who we are. It’s far more expedient to rediscover our true Self. Tick-tock. Time is speeding up. Best not to forget that Mohanji works through us all. No more no less. Skip past the rose-tinted lenses of duality and recognise we are all part of nature. All Oneness. We are the Source beyond our limited comprehension. Supreme Consciousness. For the sake of writing this blog, there had to be a lot of painful ‘I’s. However it is enough to be aware of it. 

I will conclude by saying to our beloved family that if there is an opportunity to meet our beloved Mohanji ‘Don’t Miss It.’ This is not just an opportunity of a lifetime but rather a culmination of blessings from innumerable lifetimes. Time for connecting to our Mohanji’s pure consciousness is pressing. Frankly, there are not enough words in the English language to describe who Mohanji really is. When Mohanji acts as a mirror it is only His grace that grants us our hearts desire in the form we want to experience it.

I would also like to quote an extremely important message that Mohanji gave in His speech for ‘World Consciousness Alliance‘.

“The World Consciousness Alliance (WCA) is a very high and noble instrument of service to Earth. There is a whole vibratory shift happening now in our world and beyond; the next four years till 2022 are critical. The W.C.A. has a major role in this shift.

This is not just an activity. It is the highest possible thing any human can do in his existence. In that way, your own awareness will peak to the highest possibility.

WCA is completely incomparable to anything that has been done so far. There is no time to waste. You have to move forward with conviction, and rapidly. Through music festivals and creating awareness, you make an impact.

This is for the world. This is LIFE. This is the highest possibility of your human existence. There cannot be anything more important than this. Please understand this very clearly. “

Love Mohanji

For me Mohanji is everything and everyone. There is no longer any need for rituals. There is only …Mohanji. Coming back from spending time with Mohanji results in enormous shifting. The biggest shift is finally understanding why Mohanji never leaves us even though some of us leave Mohanji. It is knowing beyond any doubt we are loved beyond measure by our beloved bike-riding, para-gliding, shark-diving Avadhoota in blue jeans that gives me peace beyond measure. Thanking Mohanji is living His teachings. In short. Live and let live. Be Mohanji. Tathastu! (so be it)

Love you eternally mere pyaare Mohanji!

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 1, October 2018

Cover_Mohanji1

“Om Parabrahmaya vidmahe

Shiva tatwaya dhi mahi,

Tanno Mohan Prachodayat.”

JAI BRAHMARISHI MOHANJI.

On this auspicious day of ‘Dussehra’ (Hindu festival), which is also the 100th Maha Samadhi day of Shirdi Sai Baba, with deep reverence and gratitude to our Guru Brahmarishi Mohanji, we attempt to compose ‘Mohanji Satcharita’, which is a collection of testimonials as pearls strung together in the thread of faith, love and gratitude. These are the true experiences shared sincerely and honestly by followers across the globe.

A Satcharita is not just a collection of stories, it is not about the person who experienced it, nor is it about how big or small the experience was. A Satcharita is about the Guru and His leela – a divine play! 

Shirdi Sai Baba Himself has said about the ‘Sai Satcharita’ “Hearing my stories and teachings will create faith in devotees’ hearts and they will easily get self-realisation and bliss. Let there be no insistence on establishing one’s own view, no attempt to refute other’s opinions, no discussions of pros and cons of any subject.”

Reading the Mohanji Satcharita would help us witness the divine at play. We believe, just by reading it, the reader will experience the same effect as the devotee who shared it. Not just in the present times, this will be an incredible avenue for future generations, to receive the same grace too.

It’s also true that naive souls like us have no wisdom or capability to portray the beauty and magnificence of Mohanji’s divine acts. Every such leela (divine act) has a deep purpose behind it. Hence, surrendering our ego completely, we begged Mohanji to help us put together this Satcharita

Mohanji blessed us, “I will help you.” 

We were not at all surprised but mesmerised by these words! These were the exact words that Sai Baba had told Hemadpant when he was going to write the ‘Sai Satcharita.’

Why did we think of contriving the ‘Mohanji Satcharita?’

Mohanji says, “The greatest teacher you can ever have is life.”

As we learn innumerable lessons and embark on this journey to realise the Guru within, the presence and guidance of God in the physical form of a Guru is invaluable. For many of us, with Mohanji’s presence in our lives, changes happened from within, changes from which there was no turning back. His presence brings intense joy and peace to the heart and mind. His love, compassion and words of wisdom give us clarity, removing doubts and fears, helping us move towards universal truths.

As unique beings, our journey in life is punctuated with interactions and experiences with Mohanji that are also unique. A great many of us have experienced Mohanji’s grace in many ways. When one surrenders with love and faith, miracles happen. 

Mohanji has shown us these miracles in many ways – through His divine presence, protection, fulfilling wishes, healing, divine visions, communion with Masters and life transforming experiences, to mention a few.

This is the first chapter of the ‘Mohanji Satcharita’ with nine such precious pearls. In this chapter, we have classified the stories into three categories:

 

Divine Vision

The Master works on His devotees in various ways. To an extent it depends on the way we connect with our Guru. Bhakti bhaav (devotion) and deep connection with the Consciousness invokes experiences in the form of visions.  Sometimes answers that we seek are also given through these visions. Experiences belong to the individual and the awareness of these helps us to grow spiritually!

1. ‘Eternal connection with Mohanji’ :  Thea Ivie, Sedona, USA, Feb 2018

This enlightening experience by Thea in Sedona helps us understand the way Mohanji carries us through the ocean of life towards higher levels of spirituality. The physical presence of the Master is not required and the only requirement from our side is acceptance of the Guru with faith and surrender. We become an empty cup which is filled with the highest by the Master and  an instrument through which the Master operates!

Thea narrates:

MS_CH1_Thea.png

From the time I met Mohanji in Sedona last March,  my spiritual growth has been extremely rapid.  

I am an old-timer on this path, having visited India in the 1960’s with darshans of Papa Ramdas, Ananda Moyi Ma, Muktananda and Karuna Mayi. 

I knew when I met Mohanji that He was my finishing school for total enlightenment in this life time.  I gave Him total power of attorney to complete any karmic residue in my subconscious. He said that I had little karma left (but what seems little to the Masters seems like a lot to us.) 

Mohanji has been doing His part consistently, as I have tried to do mine. 

When Mohanji gave me shaktipat during the Sedona retreat, I fell on my back to the ground (nobody was behind me to catch me). There was no way to break the fall as the energy coming from Mohanji was so strong. I saw many Masters coming through Him and knew that He was a channel for many Great Ones. 

As I experienced Mohanji’s energy more and more, I had visions of Rama, Krishna and Shiva coming through Him. At times, I felt He was my beloved Krishna, sometimes my Rama, and then Lord Shiva.   

I experience Him almost all the time, and know that His love for me is always there no matter what I am going through. 

I have recently become a Mai-Tri healer and the miracles have been tremendous: a man with an incurable blood disease was healed by Mohanji through Mai Tri Healing. We had three sessions of bliss and the man was totally healed!!!

I feel so privileged to be His instrument, and so grateful that this great Master came to Sedona to find me!!!! He said that He came for me. Wow! Thank God He found me!

The greatest gift we can have in this life is a Sadguru, and I do not take this great blessing for granted. 

I have experienced the merging beyond form at times, but until I am in that state all the time, I am holding onto those beautiful lotus feet in the form of Sadguru Mohanji. 

My deepest love and appreciation for such a gift!

 2. ‘The divine gift’: Kanika Gupta, Delhi, India. July, 2018

The love for the divine is enhanced through the gift of Consciousness Kriya, a practice bestowed on us by Parabrahma Mohanji, leading us on the path of liberation! This practice also intensifies divine visions and divine love in the practitioner.  Kanika shares one such experience of divine love which she has treasured since childhood.

Kanika narrates :

MS1_CH1_Kanika.jpg

I first set eyes on Mohanji in 2011. I faced a lot of ups and downs in my life during these years. One thing which I clung on to firmly during these turbulent times was Guruji, as He always held my hand. My learning so far in life is to have patience and firm faith in the Guru. The Guru always holds you through the good and the bad in life. Yet another big learning is to help people in need through Seva.

I want to share my experience which happened on 5th July, 2018 during my Kriya practice.

I lit a diya and started my Kriya practice. On completing my Kriya, I saw a small beautiful light and so I clicked some pictures. After a few days, out of curiosity I decided to have a look at the pictures of the light that I’d seen earlier. When I expanded that picture, to my surprise, I saw a divine face and immediately recognised it as the face of Santa Claus. Realisation dawned on the reason for this vision. Since childhood I have always admired Santa Claus; even now, I love to dress up as Santa Claus and distribute gifts to my family.  This experience through Kriya reinforced the love of the divine that has always been with me since childhood and continues to be. This unconditional love of Santa Claus that I experienced happened only by the grace of Mohanji, who has always held my hand during difficulties and good times too!

 Love you Guruji, Love you a lot.

3. ‘The state of expansion’: Subhasree Thottungal, London, June 2017

Merging with the consciousness and experiencing the true state of the Masters can happen during spiritual practices such as recitation of slokas and aarati with deep connection/focus and love. Subhasree shares this divine vision of being in the expanded state of Mohanji, our beloved Guru!

Subhasree narrates:

MS_CH1_Subhasree

One night, after meditation and Shivakavacha, we offered aarati to Mohanji. While doing the aarati, I felt as if I was removing ‘drishti’ off Mohanji.  (Drishti is an ancient tradition in most Indian homes where  a mother carries out a simple ritual of waving a lit camphor in front of her child to ward off any evil eye cast on the child).  As I stood with my eyes closed, I felt Mohanji was just expanding… getting larger and larger… it seemed as if I was at the bottom of some sea world and could only see one leg of the table (on which we had Mohanji’s photo). Slowly everything vanished… I couldn’t see anything, there was only vacuum…. and Mohanji had just expanded completely.

On completion of the aarati, when I opened my eyes, I felt a jerk and realised I was standing in the same place and His photo was indeed at the same place!

This was an amazing feeling.. I just didn’t understand what it was. The explanation for this vision came as below:

“This expansion is my original state.”

 I was left speechless with this communication and darshan from Mohanji in His original state!

Meditation_Expanded_2
Painting By Mataji T. Villareal Sharma, Philippines

Do I need to expect anything further at all? This is the state of merging – merging with the supreme consciousness, the Shiva!

Gurudev, I have simply no existence. I exist because You DO!

Koti Pranam at your feet, Mohanji.

Subhasree

Life Transformation

A true Master’s goal is to lead us towards liberation which is also the ultimate goal of every human. The Guru may give us visions, experiences, and make His presence felt for us to seek refuge in Him. But it is left to us to transform ourselves  and walk towards moksha. This transformation or change is brought on by the Master to help us let go of certain baggage that we carry which may probably entwine us in karmic bondage.

The following experiences are shared by those who have seen major positive changes in their lives.  Mohanji’s presence has transformed their lives, bringing peace and joy to themselves and those around them. 

4. ‘Discovering the new me’: Dr Pritam Purohit, Pune, India, June 2018

Dr. Pritam beautifully shares the changes which happened within him after meeting Mohanji. The changes need not be through dramatic experiences or visions but could take place in a subtle manner. The learning from this experience is dropping the “I” factor and accepting everything as a divine command.  Read on and enjoy the beautiful but subtle transformation of Dr. Pritam.

Dr Pritam narrates:

 ms_ch1_pritam.jpgI have always wondered after reading the experiences of others whether I am connected to Mohanji or not. I came to know about Mohanji from Dr.Nikita, when my wife was undergoing some treatment. My wife became connected to Mohanji first, and started attending meditation sessions and other activities with the Mohanji family in Pune. I was indifferent to things as I was busy at work and  my mind was cluttered with concepts. However, I went to meet Mohanji in Mumbai at the earliest opportunity. This was in June 2017 and now in retrospect, I see that life has been nothing but a miracle ever since.

I used to be an angry person, dissatisfied with almost everything, annoyed and irritable all the time. Every night while going to bed, I would decide to be a changed person from the next day  but it would not happen, thus making it a vicious circle. Gradually it started interfering in my day-to-day functioning. I would crave for  peace of mind and not being able to  have it would make me jittery.

And after Mohanji’s arrival in my life, I have transformed; initially in a subtle, not so dramatic way and then completely. Everyone around me is surprised and so am I! There is a sense of calmness, especially in situations where I used to get agitated earlier. I have begun to see myself as a witness residing in a body rather than being only the body. I feel the emotions, but they have started to have a much lesser effect on me.

I am a physician working in a government set up. Every day, before starting my work, I would pray to Mohanji in my mind and surrender all I am about to do, to Him. And He takes care. I have started to salvage patients in a peripheral hospital, whereas I have seen similar patients dying in a tertiary care premier hospital during my training days. I do not take ownership of the patients, and manage the cases keeping Him in mind, many a time just on clinical grounds as my peripheral hospital doesn’t have any advanced diagnostic facilities. He would always be there and He would take care. Sometimes I would feel that I am being selfish but then I see Him in His photograph and He would be smiling back, giving me immense strength.

And yes, from a dedicated non vegetarian to being a total vegetarian, the transformation has been awesome. This is something that I thought would never happen.

I have not stopped having problems, but He has given me the power to face it all. And there is a feeling of His constant presence. No worries, no negativity… pure bliss.

With gratitude and prayers, always and forever.

Pritam

5. ‘Being the consciousness’: Alex Sasa Glusac, Serbia, October 2018

Being highly intuitive, Alex knew deep in his heart that meeting Mohanji would be life –changing for him. That is exactly what happened when he set eyes on Mohanji and instantly connected with Him at the soul level. Everything was Shiva! Total silence engulfed him and this triggered the process of his transformation! Read on and experience the joy of this communion!

Alex narrates:

MS_Ch1_Alex Sasa.jpg

I was somewhere in between the ending of earlier experiences and the beginning of new ones which were nudging me to Mohanji. Something inside me believed that meeting Him would be important. I admit that I am a sceptical person, but the last years have shown me that there is something more to my spirituality that was awaiting fulfilment, something really special and at the same time completely mine. I am not sure if  I would want to name it, but  if someone were to ask me whether I believe in wizards and fairies,  I would say – Yes!

Because of that I had accepted the idea and the call to come to the retreat as a guest and ‘sneak in’ if there was a chance… and that happened. When I arrived, I didn’t even sit down while waiting and then someone came for me to take me into the hall. And there He was! My first Shaktipat happened in silence in the hall in Andrevlje, where for the first time, I saw Him and the people who cry themselves out…  

I kneeled down and received Shaktipat, honestly knowing nothing about what was supposed to happen. I got up and lost myself in His eyes. Something formidable was shining out of Him.  A deep and intense silence filled me full of strength, but what seemed like an abyss, where all of my thoughts had stopped; Shiva, they told me. I sat on a chair lost in some space where there was nothing. Suddenly I heard my heart tingling and my tears started to flow. Those were the tears of a warrior who  finally after centuries of waiting, had put down his armour and recognized and heard himself. It was the beginning of my path with Him. I know I am missing words in explaining this experience but words do not matter any more to me. I know that I am changing and that Mohanji’s consciousness is inside me and building a new me.

I feel a joy in my soul which is expanding me and erasing the common games of power and proving myself to others. I feel that with every Kriya that I do, it connects me more and more to Him. I am becoming what I am; I am becoming the consciousness which is growing through Him. And I know that deep inside, this feeling of love and the feeling of Him, makes me divine. “Be Mohanji,” He said… 

O yes, I will be. Thank you!

Alex

6. ‘In eternal peace’: Sara Sydney, Toronto, Canada, April 2018

One single step can bring on life-transforming changes within a person. Sara took the initiative and attended a POP session after which there was no looking back. She was hooked to the Master although she met Him much later. Once she set eyes on Him, the transformation was accelerated! Given below is an account in her own words about the step by step changes that took place in her life.

Sara narrates:

 MS_CH1_Sara.jpgI was introduced to Mohanji by Nilesh.  He had ordered some T- shirts through the phone to my business and when he came to pick up the shirts, I asked who Mohanji was.  Very lovingly, Nilesh explained to me about Mohanji and asked me to check the Power of Purity meditation online.  He even loaded it on to my desk top.  At that time, I hated myself and the world.  I kept it for 3 months not looking at it but was conscious of it being there. After 3 months, I called Nilesh and asked if he does the meditation he was talking about, and he said yes, come over on a Friday at 7pm.  I went with hesitation, not knowing these people and not knowing what it was all about.  I had a very warm welcome. I enjoyed the meditation and have never looked back.  On the first day, my husband had dropped me to Nilesh’s house where they were doing the meditation.  On the way back and also after coming home, he was surprised to see some changes in me.  He asked if I was going back the next week.  I said, “Yes, no one can stop me.”  He was very happy.

Mohanji came to Toronto in March and I went for the 1 day retreat.  That was the first time I met Him.  I was afraid to talk to Mohanji although He came and sat at the table where I was having lunch.  I was asking Him questions in my mind all the time He was sitting there.  I got most of the answers afterwards.  The most important thing for me was, from that time onwards, I stopped eating meat and fish, and stopped drinking alcohol.  Many more changes in me!

Consciousness Kriya has brought many positive life experiences.  I am more confident.  I am cleaner and clearer within myself.  There is always a white light within my body.  I don’t worry as much as before.  I give it away to Mohanji and leave it behind me.  I talk to myself more, analyse it and then try to forget about it.

In conclusion, I am a more relaxed person.  Much more calm, inside and outside. I am happier when I do my Kriya in the mornings before I start my day.  I have gained a lot of peace and happiness within me.  There is no holding back in this material world.  I am at peace with everyone and everything.

Mohanji says “When you connect to the consciousness through the teachings, then you understand the benchmark for it is transformation. Understand whether the teacher is transforming you. Making you more silent inside. Making you immune to the pleasures and pains of life. These are clear signs of transformation.”

Thank you Mohanji for everything that You have blessed me with.

Divine Presence

Brahmarishi Mohanji always urges us to connect deeply to His consciousness and when we do He can be seen, sensed, experienced and heard in innumerable ways. Faster than the speed of lightning, the communication can be strong  and vibrant! Physical miles cannot separate a true Master from His disciple. Stronger the call, quicker the response from Him. Mohanji can never ignore these calls and gets pulled towards a genuine seeker. At times, He even anticipates these desires and rushes to fulfill them or makes the ride smooth for the devotees. A simple utterance of His name in earnest brings Him to the caller. It is then left to the seeker to realise the boon bestowed upon him.

7. ‘At the Nandi Hill temple’: Preethi Gopalarathnam, Mumbai, India, October 2018

This beautiful experience happened during a trip to Thiruvannamalai – Arunachalam with Mohanji – just after the Consciousness Kriya Intensive programme in Bengaluru in October 2018. The temple that Mohanji has never visited previously, in a period that Mohanji was not even in India, the priest mentions of Him being present. Not just being present but doing Abhishekam! This divine vision was mindblowing to the devotees, who became aware of this fact much later.

It has been our experience that during each event blessed by Mohanji, hurdles are removed just as the rays of the sun make dark clouds disappear. During this program too, Mohanji paved the way for a successful and smooth program along with darshan as required well in advance. It is our innate nature to assume that we are the doers in any situation. This experience by Preethi brings in the wisdom and reminds us that we are mere instruments in the hands of our Master. If we work with this awareness and allow the grace to do its work, success is ensured.

 

Preethi narrates:

MS_Ch1_Preethi_2

Let me share our experience at Nandi Hills.

When we reached the top of the Hills, the overcast sky signalled impending heavy rain. In fact, group participants asked me how we would be able to do Kriya there. I remembered all the past experiences where things like these cleared miraculously with Mohanji’s grace and replied that it probably wouldn’t rain!

Someone told me the temple we came up for was closed. But we decided to do Kriya either inside or near it anyway. Once we went into the temple, the priest ushered us in and took us inside the sanctum sanctorum. He asked, “Are all of you from Mohanji’s group?” We said yes and he replied that Mohanji had been here a month or so ago. In fact he said that Mohanji was right where we were standing and spent about half an hour doing Rudra Abhishekam. We were wearing our ID cards and hence assumed that we were thus recognized as Mohanji’s followers. We had an amazing darshan (view) and received prasad (sacred offered food).  The priest was very accommodating and in fact directed us to a place where we could sit down to do Kriya. Just to put this in context, usually devotees are not allowed to stay for long inside the sanctum sanctorum of temples in South India. We were filled with love and happily did Kriya inside the sanctum sanctorum. The priest later explained the significance of this temple. Yoga Nandishwarar is where Shiva is in Yoga form, completely in union with Parabrahma. We had a beautiful Kriya session and went to the next sannidhi (shrine) where Maa Parvati called Mukthambika was in a separate shrine. The priest said that one should ask Her for Liberation and when She blesses us, it’s guaranteed! 

The significance of this series of events  was huge, as we were a group of Kriya initiates and have taken vows to lead a life which would help us get exactly there! Once we prayed and did Kriya there, we noticed there was also a shrine for Karthikeya or Lord Muruga. He is considered the Gnyana Avatar (incarnation of wisdom) and I remember Mohanji saying Maha Avatar Babaji was Lord Muruga’s amsa (manifestation). I was elated as it seemed as if the entire Tradition had come to bless us. We then went to the Boga Nandishwar temple, had beautiful darshan (view) and did Kriya practice there. Just when we left the place, there was a light drizzle as if the Gods showered us with blessings and we  boarded our bus. No heavy rain, though when we started in the morning we were mighty sure we would get caught in a heavy downpour!

When I reached Arunachalam (Tiruvannamalai)  the next day, I shared with Mohanji that we had great darshan (view) in the temple the previous day and we practiced Kriya there too. I asked Him if He was there a month ago, and did the Rudra Abhishekam?

With a twinkle in His eyes He said, “I was not here in India, a month back, right?”

I was shocked as I then remembered it was true that Mohanji was not in India last month! I also came to know that Mohanji has never visited this temple previously. Then how did the priest see Mohanji doing Abhishek? If he has never met Mohanji, then how did he even recognsied us as Mohanji’s followers? Questions such as these were racing through my mind!

I also remembered my sister Hema telling me that there was a man who asked her and Nikolina to go inside. He spoke in English and said, “Are you guys not the new Kriya initiates, please go in!” How did he know this? My sister assumed I had spoken to some other people about Kriya, but I had not!

Only then did I realise that Mohanji had actually arranged for this even before we came. I felt various emotions then, including shame for thinking ‘I’ was conducting and arranging the program. He came ahead and ensured smooth darshan  (view) and treatment.

I also understood what He meant by,

“If you remember I will do the program, then everything will be fine.”

What a profound lesson! What a crucial and vital learning experience. I was so humbled and at the same felt at peace. As we go about our daily life (including volunteering work) we need to just remember that we have to make ourselves available and everything happens through us. I understood the significance of these words now. 

Thank you Mohanji for your kindness, and  for explaining this to me as You always do, ‘In baby food format,’ so that I could digest it. After this, my only prayer at every shrine is to help us stay in this awareness as we serve our Guru.

8. ‘Divine presence in any form’: Girija Thekkandy, Kerala, India, Sept 2018

As devotees, all that is required of us is to hold onto the loving hand of the Guru through the ups and downs in life with faith. The Master gently carries us through the journey, shielding us and showering us with His grace. Girija’s experience shows how  chanting the Mohanji Gayatri mantra as a silent prayer helped her and her daughter in a new place!

Girija narrates :

MS_CH1_Girija.jpg

I had moved to Kerala from the US this June, and my 11 year old daughter, my mother and I now live in our new home in Vengeri, Calicut. We have a 5 minute walk to the bus stop of her school bus. My daughter hasn’t learnt the local language yet, the walk ways are winding, the pick-up spot is at a busy junction and she cannot cross the road by herself. In short, she is completely dependent on me as she is new to the country. One day, I had to go for some errands, but the place I had to go to was about an hour and half away. I decided to walk with my daughter  to the school bus stop and thought to myself that I would  return quickly  before the school bus would drop her back after school. Unfortunately, it did not happen as planned. It started raining heavily (I had forgotten my umbrella) and I got onto a bus much later than anticipated.  Finally, the situation was such that it would  be  30 minutes before I would reach the bus stop to pick her up.  Time was ticking by and I knew that I would be late. I could not contact my mother at home, or anyone else  for help. I tried to contact the bus driver, but the call did not go through, most likely because of the heavy rains. I was frozen. I did not dare to imagine what could happen! I simply closed my eyes and started chanting  the Mohanji Gayatri mantra on the bus I was travelling on. To make matters worse, that day my bus did not stop at the correct bus stop! I had to take an auto. When I finally reached my daughter’s  school bus drop off spot,  it was still raining and was 15 minutes past the arrival time of the bus. But I could not see anyone on the road.

I called the bus driver and he said that he was still on his way. I was relieved and picked up my daughter from the bus. On our way back, I asked, “Why are you so late?” She said, “Amma, something strange happened in the bus. The bus was going through a narrow place. We saw a big snake coming from between the trees outside the bus, and climbing in through the open window near the driver. It was moving its head behind the driver’s head! All the children were frightened and started crying from the back of the bus. The driver didn’t know. When he looked back and  saw the snake,  he too  got scared. It took us around 40 minutes  to shoo it away and fix everything.  We had to wait  and that’s why we were delayed.”

Realisation dawned! I was speechless with wonder and gratitude as I understood what had happened. My daughter was asking me “Why you are not talking, aren’t you surprised? Do snakes often come into vehicles in this  manner  in India? This never happened in America.” That is true, this never happens anywhere! I could not speak at that time, but will explain to her the miracle that just took place, one day.

Pranaams (Salutate) to my Guruji for taking care of us by playing this leela (divine play).

9. ‘Anytime, Anywhere’: Subhasree Thottungal, London, UK, August 2018

Our Guru’s promise that He will never leave our hand is proven time and again through various anecdotes. Connecting the dots related to a particular incident is what makes us aware of the protection and support given by Him. In this incident shared by Subhasree, this factor becomes evident as both, the person who was with Mohanji at that point in time and the person on whom the grace was bestowed were both aware of His presence by their side!

Subhasree narrates:

MS_Ch1_Subha2

I will share something that I witnessed, just as a mere observer…

This was during the London Retreat. I was serving Mohanji then. One afternoon, it was His rest time (He doesn’t really have any rest time…it is a time when He may just lie down, either talking to His people or checking emails answering the innumerable  questions of people etc. That afternoon, when He laid down and I was pressing His feet, He turned sidewise, and I noticed that His hands were spread ahead, phone and glasses put aside and in two seconds He appeared to be in deep sleep! I was stunned and wondered what happened, as He doesn’t sleep like this. My gross mind worried, “Oh Mohanji is so tired that He slept immediately.” Little did I know about the happenings unfolding at that time! I gently started pressing His arms and shoulders.

And to my surprise, His arms felt as if there was no skin, no muscles, no bones… felt like soft wool! Now, I was shocked. This was very unusual. I realized that something serious was going on! I have observed in the past that when Mohanji is working on someone, His legs, or arms become rock solid i.e. hard! This time it was the opposite, His body was as soft as wool; I understood that He was not present in the room! Later on, when I came back to give Him tea, He was already up.

He looked at me and said, “I slept immediately, right? I wasn’t here.”

I replied, “I know. Your arms were as soft as a pillow. This wasn’t normal. What happened?”

He then narrated the events.

At that time, someone in South Africa was in real trouble. The young daughter of a devotee was delayed in returning from a far-off place; the usual arrangement of pick-up had failed. The parents were unable to send the car and if the daughter had to wait for it, it would have caused more delay and it was risky. The parents started praying to Mohanji. Mohanji conveyed to them to ask the daughter to come back on her own and He assured them that He will be with her. The mother conveyed the same to her daughter and also asked her to chant the Mohanji Gayatri mantra while walking.

However, the daughter just chanted “Mohanji” repeatedly. What she experienced was truly amazing. She expressed that, while she was walking through the busy road with so many people around, she felt as if no one was aware of her walking. She felt that some people did look at her but they looked to her side and a little higher up, as if someone taller was walking beside her! She felt as if Mohanji was walking with her. Finally, she reached home, safe and sound.

I understood that when I witnessed Mohanji slipping into deep sleep suddenly and His body becoming unusually soft, He had actually gone to some remote place in South Africa to walk the girl safely back to her parents!

While listening to this, tears flowed from my eyes. It was difficult to comprehend how much and in how many ways Mohanji was protecting so many people/beings all around! There was nothing to doubt, because I had witnessed what was happening to His physical body on one side. Our logical mind sometimes can bring in doubts and weaken our faith. But instances like these cause doubts to disappear! My head bowed with so much gratitude for the divinity of our Master, who is living only for all of us.

What we read in Sai Satcharita is actually happening in current times too. All we need to do is keep our inner eyes and ears open, our  faith intact, strengthen our conviction and surrender completely. Grace then flows.

Mohanji, aapki leela aparamapar( “Mohanji, your acts are incomprehensible”).

Jai Mohanji.

— Subhasree

conclusion_Mohanji.jpg

 

We offer this souvenir of our gratitude at the feet of Guru Mohanji and present this with utmost love to all the readers.

We are surrendering our intention of continuing further chapters of ‘Mohanji Satcharita’ each month, as the testimonials from devotees all over the world keeps flowing in.

We would like to conclude the 1st chapter of “Mohanji Satcharita” with this sloka from the Guru Gita,

devanagari

Shri Guroh paramam rupam viveka chakshushomratam,

Mandabhagyaa na pashyanti andhah suryodayam yatha|

Which means:

“The absolute form of the Guru is like nectar to those who can truly see. To those who cannot see through the veil of illusion, the true form of the Guru is shrouded, like the sunrise is to a blind man.”

Jai Shree Guru Datta.

Jai Mohanji.

The Consciousness Connect

By Neelu (Mohana Bhakti Priya), India.

Mohanji_pure_consciousness.JPG

Connection to Mohanji’s consciousness is truly Being One with the divine. All Duality ends there. Every sincere seeker’s story, who have been connected to Mohanji in His consciousness, shows this every time. Such is the story as Neelu narrates through her sincere testimonial below.

When we are connected to Mohanji, physically or metaphysically, or even when he is around physically or non-physically, things just happen – big problems become laughable jokes. Life is as it flows. We are all one. – Devi Mohan

Neelu has shared her experiences that validate this into two very different situations. Read on and enjoy the beautiful shower of blessings on Neelu and her cousin Sameer!

Gurudev’s Grace takes him out of ICU

My cousin Sameer, was hospitalized in Hyderabad, last Saturday with high fever. (This young 25-year-old, lost his parents and little brother in a tragic road accident while returning from Shirdi ten years ago.) Doctors first diagnosed his condition as Dengue, owing to the rapid fall in his platelets. But later, the tests appeared positive for malaria and Jaundice too. His body temperature did not return to normal even after medication for 3 days. As soon as I came to know of this, I sent a message to Mohanji seeking his help. He immediately replied in spite of his busy schedule and advised us on some course of action for removal of his Karma. Throughout, Mohanji was with him (in astral form) helping Sameer recover. When I prayed to Mohanji before I went to bed and connected with his Consciousness, I asked him if Sameer would be ok. I received his reply that he was there beside Sameer. Last night, the situation had been very grim. But in one night, Mohanji changed the whole scenario.

Today, his body temperature has normalised, and further tests show that there are no traces of malaria, dengue, or jaundice. He has been shifted from the ICU to a regular room in the hospital and he will be discharged in just two days after observation.  What could have been a week’s ordeal was set right by Mohanji in just one night!

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

Neelu shares two more of her own experiences which show how our Guru hears and satisfies our innermost longing for his Grace and blessings. Connect to a living master through faith and surrender and He will always be with you!

Initiation to Consciousness Kriya

Before I write anything about my Consciousness Kriya (CK) initiation and the experiences related to the sacred elevating tool, I would like to offer my Koti Pranaams at the lotus feet of my Master, my everything, my everyone, my Praana, my Aatma, Shri Brahmarishi Mohanji, for bestowing me with his unlimited Grace.

Applying for Consciousness Kriya

After my connection with Mohanji, I started reading about Consciousness Kriya and the experiences of the initiates. Deep within my heart, I knew that it was meant for me as my soul craved for this sacred initiation. I don’t know why, but I never dared to apply for it. There were many reasons for my hesitation. First of all, it was because my immediate family has no belief in living Masters and such techniques. And I thought, it was meant for people who can sit and meditate for a long time, which I could not do. I had many such fears. As always, Mohanji, who knew all these things, lovingly gave me a wonderful and comfortable opportunity to apply.

I was planning a vacation, to visit my parents in Hyderabad, from the end of December 2017 to mid-January, 2018. Exactly at that moment, the Kriya training and initiation in Mumbai (to be held on 9th Jan 2018) was announced. So I had a very good opportunity to attend the initiation with my parents without having to depend upon my immediate family. (My maternal family – my mother and brother – are very connected to Mohanji.) My brother and I always wished that my mother should also be initiated into CK. So my mother and I applied for the sacred initiation. By his loving grace, both our applications were accepted. I was very happy and excited. Everything was going smoothly as I had wanted.

Within a week of acceptance of our CK applications, turbulence started, which I think was a major cleansing process for me. Negativity was hitting me from everywhere. The biggest hit was, when my mother-in-Law fell down and got her ankle slightly fractured. It was just a week before our vacation to Hyderabad. I worried that I may not be able to attend the initiation, as I could not leave my mother-in-law alone in such a condition. But on visiting a doctor, we came to know that, it was just a minor fracture, and she would be normal within 15 days. I realised that I still had sufficient time to be present for the CK initiation. I immediately understood how Mohanji was protecting me from the intensity of the negativity and making it possible for my mother and me to attend the initiation. My vacation to Hyderabad was however cancelled due to this incident, but we could attend the initiation without any problems.

Attending Consciousness Kriya Initiation

My brother was also present with us at the initiation. Baba arranged it in such a way that my parents, my kids and I didn’t face any problems in an unknown city, Mumbai. Moreover, Mohanji fulfilled my desire of meeting him, along with my brother and my mother. (The most loving and understanding trio I have in this lifetime.) Actually it was the first time that I left my little son (and my older son) with my father in a hotel room. He had never been away from me like this for a whole day. But I surrendered all my worries at Mohanji‘s feet and left for the venue. Mohanji as always took care of my worries. My little son was alright, even though he couldn’t see me for a whole day.

The day of the initiation, 9th of Jan, 2018, was very blissful and beyond my imagination, filled only with love and purity. As soon as I entered the venue, I could feel the pure energy of Mohanji. I felt that the whole room, the people present there, the food that we were served, everything was filled with Mohanji.

It was also the first time that I was meeting Deviji, which I was looking forward to, for a long time. She trained us in CK, which was again an amazing experience. She explained to all of us very patiently and clearly the whole process of CK. I felt so blessed that I had a chance to get the training of CK from none other than the Shakti aspect of Mohanji (Deviji). After the blissful training session, Mohanji himself gave us the sacred initiation. Later, he met my brother, my mother and I in a very loving manner, and that moment will always be one of the best moments of my life.

Neelu_CK_Inititation.jpg

After the initiation, we attended the group Mai-tri healing session, which was again a wonderful and blissful experience. In the evening, we had the blessed opportunity to participate in a soul soothing satsang with Mohanji. After the Satsang, as soon as Mohanji left the venue, my back ache, which I had been suffering from for many days, disappeared magically. He took all our pains away while leaving.

Visit to Shirdi

The day after the initiation, we were to visit Shirdi, after a long gap of 9 years. On the day of initiation, my mother and I thought that it would be wonderful if Mohanji was present with us in Shirdi. There was a retreat scheduled in Shirdi from that day onwards and MohanJi was also present there in Shirdi. Unfortunately, those not attending the retreat were not allowed to meet Mohanji. So we knew that we didn’t stand a chance of meeting him. But he was listening to us, as always.

The day we reached Shirdi, we attended the Shej Aarati of Sai Baba. My mother and I were waiting in a hall for the Aarati. As soon we were seated, we got the smell of a perfume, just the same that Mohanji wore during the initiation. We understood that he was present with us. The perfume remained with us the whole time. He added one more sign to indicate his presence. A black and sleek dog came from nowhere, and waited with us till we got into the Mandir hall for the aarati. He was there just for us, making sure everything was ok, I could feel it in his eyes. He waited with us while we were in the queue to enter the Mandir hall.

After we entered the hall, I didn’t see him. We had a wonderful Aarati and darshan of Sai Baba. As soon as we came out of the Mandir, he (the dog) was there waiting for us. We went to the Gurusthan to pay our respects to the sacred place. As it was late night, it was closed for darshan. So we just paid our respects from a distance. The black dog jumped through the railings, and he bowed before the Gurusthan. All the time, he was looking at me, straight into my eyes. I was just speechless. And at last, as we headed back to our hotel room, he also walked away. He stopped after a while, turned back, gave a long reassuring look at us and went his way. We were blessed to have this amazing experience. My feelings were one of gratitude and only gratitude.

Mohanji Pendant

It has always been my desire to have the Mohanji Pendant. I was trying to buy it online, but due to some reason, I couldn’t buy it for six long months. I tried to get one at the stall during the CK initiation too. But it was not available that day. I was very disappointed by this. I wanted the pendant to be blessed by Mohanji and to receive it from his hands. But it didn’t happen. So I requested the team there to send it to me, blessed by him at the Shirdi retreat. I got it on 27th Jan, at a blissful Bhajan Sandhya at Gurgaon. The day is very memorable for me.

Mohanji_Pendant.jpg

After a week of receiving the pendant, my kids were clicking my pictures at home. On that day, I wore a heavy black coat, and my pendant was beneath it. When I was going through the photos, the ones clicked by my little one had an amazing phenomenon. The place where the pendant was hanging on my chain, beneath the coat, was shining very brightly, like a small sun. Mohanji was present in the pendant. He showed it to me, so beautifully…

Mohanji’s Grace & Love

The unlimited grace and the unconditional love he always showers on a nobody that I am, can’t be explained in words. These words are only a very feeble attempt to show his love.

There have been many tests since my Kriya initiation, till this date. Being a very emotional person, I was shaken to the core, while undergoing these tests. He was very gently holding me through all these times, protecting me as a mother would protect her baby. He made me shed a lot of my fears, empowered me and never gave up on me, in spite of my many falls. With each and every experience, he came much closer to me, loved me more.

As I have said in my earlier experience blogs, his consciousness always speaks to me. Now, I talk to him more than anyone else in this world. In fact, the real conversations I have in my life are with him only. Sometimes I forget there is another world for me. But he makes me manage my other world too without any hiccups thus, filling my whole life with HIM everywhere. I can feel him now in my every cell. In fact, my whole being just belongs to HIM. My whole existence lies at his Lotus feet only and nowhere else.

I am now eagerly waiting for the blissful moment, when I will be able to merge into him completely, after completing all my duties of this lifetime. The wait for the complete dissolution, walking the path while holding HIS hand, is what LIFE means to me now.

Hovering “I” on Bosnian Pyramid with Mohanji

Author: Biljana Vozarevic, Serbia

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

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

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

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

Climbing to Vratnica Tumulus

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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