From antiquities to awareness

by Vipin Koodiyedath, Kerala, India

Water droplets do not know about the ocean. But those drops of water are not satisfied until they become the ocean. Every drop of water is a journey in search of the ocean and the journey of that water droplet to dissolve in it. The water droplet can only be completed on target when it reaches the river.

Mohanji is like a river, and it keeps flowing. When we drown in that river with our minds full of the filth of antiquities, we become aware of our purpose.

Overcoming all obstacles, the first water droplet begins its journey through the cliffs of the mountains, and its life journey through the valley is always challenging. Mohanji’s life was like that. By the time Mohanji had flown into the abyssal valley of enlightenment, much of the value of his talking life had left him. One thing we do not remember is the pain of the river when we enjoy the beauty of the great waterfall.

Researchers and philosophers can only be found in the timeless tradition of India. Overcoming all worldly desires, they will carry out their enlightenment work quietly and unselfishly and complete their mission, and they will be fully realized. Mohanji is the Guru of that series.

Mohanji says that it is not time but the conviction that heals your wounds. That conviction is not merely physical. It’s about recognizing who we are.

From the Indian subcontinent, Mohanji’s journey spans 92 countries. From a place called Puthur in Palakkad, his mission has now spread worldwide. For some, Mohanji is a friend; for others, he is a guru. For many, he is a guardian; for some, he is worshipped as the incarnation of Shirdi Sai Baba, and for those who rejoice in the play of an avadhoota, he is an incarnation of Dattatreya Maharshi.

The life picture of any person is never static; It is subject to change over time. Those changes must be in pursuit of his purpose in life.

Lessons living with Mohanji – Days 107 & 108

by Christopher Greenwood

Day 107 Lesson – The frequency of Mohanji 

Good morning everybody. I hope that you’re doing well. 

Yesterday I went through notes that I’d made from some of the morning meetings with Mohanji. From time to time, Mohanji would share information that helped me understand some of the dimensions that I couldn’t perceive. 

I wanted to share the time we discussed Masters, Incarnations, and Avatars. Mohanji clarified the difference between the frequency and the state of a Master and their personality – the frequency they’re operating from, their personality, form, appearance, and behaviours, which most people would connect. This distinction was meaningful learning because it helped me understand this difference. Especially as I’ve spent a lot of time with Mohanji now, and it can be very easy to start connecting to him simply as the form, as the personality, missing out on the stature that he’s representing.

He explained it using the examples of Masters such as Sai Baba and Bhagavan Nityananda – each of these masters had their distinct personalities. But at the same time, they were considered as Dattatreya Avatars. Mohanji explained that this is said because they were operating at the frequency of Dattatreya. In personality, though they were unique, their stature or frequency was that of Datta.

This was an important distinction for me because it’s the frequency that somebody is operating from, where you can say that they are that. Anyone raising their frequency to that of Dattatreya would be called Datta. This clarity was vital for me because I realized one would completely miss the point, to think of Dattatreya or anybody as a person or a personality,

This is the same for Mohanji too. To consider him as a person or a personality, just the body, the form, would also be missing the bigger picture. If I’m only connecting to Mohanji as the personality, then that’s the level that it will stay. Once he’s passed on, it will be Mohanji’s personality body. Beyond the personality, there is an operating frequency, a stature. Someone who has raised their operating frequency to that of Mohanji will also be considered as Mohanji.

This is how people connect to other Masters too. If someone operates from a state or frequency of Krishna or Rama, they’d be considered Krishna or Rama. The frequency that people are operating from gives that recognition of a state.

If it’s from a place of anger, hatred, jealousy, gossip, or judgments, it’s simply personality that has been expressed, something much lower. 

I hope you have a great day ahead and that this was useful or interesting for you. We will speak soon.

Day 108 Lesson – Mohanji does not need the body to work 

Good morning everybody. 

Yesterday I shared an insight from a conversation I had with Mohanji. He clarified what people mean when they say that a certain Master is an Avatar of Dattatreya, a different deity, or what we can consider a deity. He shared that when somebody reaches or attains a particular frequency, they can be called that frequency. They are that. 

I spoke of Shirdi Sai Baba or Bhagavan Nityananda, considered Dattatreya avatars, as their operating frequency is Dattatreya’s. I also shared that this is the same for Mohanji too. Beyond Mohanji’s personality, there is an operating frequency, a stature. Someone who has raised their operating frequency to Mohanji’s will also be considered Mohanji.

This was an eye-opener as it increased my awareness to differentiate between the form (the body) and the state. Today, I wanted to expand on that a little by recalling some of the previous recordings, where I had given examples that Mohanji didn’t necessarily need the body to work. There have been a few cases like this explained below.

Once we were having a conversation in the morning, Mohanji suddenly stood up, walked forward, came to his knees, did some push-ups, returned, and restarted our discussion again. It really confused me. He said that someone had called out to him and needed to help them. Later, somebody had confirmed that their relative survived the experience in the hospital. (I think it might have been a heart attack) 

Sometimes I’ve seen Mohanji in his room in the mornings; his body seemed changed or shifted shape, which shows that something is happening with his body. Sometimes he’d grow in size and would have muscles (as if he’s been to the gym), even though he hadn’t been out of the room in months. Other times, his stomach would completely swell in size. 

There have been testimonials where people have physically seen Mohanji, even though he’s been in a different country. I’ve received some interesting experiences in the office through an email, and then I’ve also received an email of sincere gratitude, thanking Mohanji for all his help. We have a rule in the office that everything should be attended to within 24 hours maximum. Sometimes an email might arrive, and it could be maybe 10 hours before I’ve had a chance to check it. 

There’ve been two incidents where I’ve received an email about a major issue or trouble. Shortly after that, I’ve also received an email conveying extreme thanks and gratitude, thanking Mohanji for all his help. Ironically, I hadn’t spoken to him about the issue or trouble, but he’d already heard the call and did what he needed to do. 

Similar things have happened when I sit with him in the morning to talk about activities. Many people would be praying to him at that time; many would have had experiences, too, with their prayers answered. Mohanji has shared with me that he doesn’t necessarily need the body. He’s understood himself sufficiently to know that he’s not the body, and the body is kept as a reference point, a point of communication. I think he shared this in satsangs, too. Mohanji will keep the body as long as it’s required by us (the people) and the tradition, but He doesn’t necessarily need it for work. 

I also see this from changes in his presence throughout the day. During the day, there can be a noticeable change in his presence. He will be more conversational at certain times, and at other times, it’s as if he is barely there, yet he is physically there.

I know people say you should never try to understand and observe the behaviours of the Master. But there’s been enough time now to observe patterns when Mohanji is more present and when he’s less. For me, it wasn’t easy to understand this at the start, and even now, I can’t say with total honesty that I can completely do it because it’s not something I can see. From these individual events/experiences and hearing them from other people, I know that there’s much more activity taking place than what I can ever comprehend. And for that, he doesn’t need the body. We see Mohanji’s form, Mohanji’s personality, but it is one aspect – a point of communication.

Following on from the lesson yesterday, I feel this is a good reminder that there is Mohanji as the personality/form and Mohanji beyond the body – the frequency or consciousness. It’s a reminder to be aware of what I am connecting to.

I hope you have a good day ahead and we will speak soon.

Sacred Homa – Merging into Shiva Consciousness

Mohanji

By Sonia Gandhi, Australia

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

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

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

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

Mohanji1

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

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

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

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

Homa 1

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

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

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

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

Homa 2

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sonia
