Meeting my Guru

Mohanji and Bojana 2

by Bojana Fabel

 It was in 2015, that I first met Mohanji, in Macedonia. This is how it all happened.

I had seen a Facebook advertisement, which said, “Satsang with Mohanji” and that it would be held in Skopje. I said to myself – “Oh, this is a great opportunity to finally be present at a real-life satsang!” I had watched satsangs of other Masters, Gurus and Acharyas, but only on YouTube.

I knew that Ziate, my high school friend was already connected to Mohanji. So, I immediately enquired about the same from him. He encouraged me and asked me to definitely attend the satsang.

I then contacted Zoran (Hanummatananda) to secure my place, and soon enough the day came when for the first time, I saw Mohanji. He was seated on his white chair, on a higher platform, dressed in white, talking and answering questions to a room full of people.

I still remember our very first eye-contact. He looked straight into my eyes, with a childish, yet fierce look. When I left the room after the satsang, I was enveloped with a feeling of purity, lightness and happiness, just like I would feel in my childhood days, so pure and blissful. That night, I had slept like a baby!

On the second day of the satsang, I was very happy to go back and meet Mohanji again. Not to forget, I was amazed at how calm He was, and more so, to see Him seated with His spine erect. I wanted to be like Him. (I am not joking).

But to the contrary, while the satsang was on, I felt like I wanted to escape from this room, leave and run, as fast as I could, as something was happening to me! I was having a FULL BLOWN anxiety attack. Here, I must mention that I had gone through anxiety and panic attacks, the whole of the previous year, and you cannot imagine the terror I was going through in the mind and body sitting in front of a Guru, with an expectation that everything will be perfect. Instead, I was having an attack AGAIN! It was really hard.

recognise yourself

But all of a sudden, an unknown inner power woke up in me, which said – “NO YOU ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE, YOU ARE STAYING HERE”. I suddenly felt strong and so I remained seated. I had won over an anxiety attack for the very first time after two years of suffering! This was the last anxiety I ever experienced, since then.

I believe that the last attack was meant to cleanse my system, in front of my Guru, by my Guru. It’s difficult to believe, complicated to understand unless some clarity appears and one sees the whole picture. It’s a secret that has stayed with the Gods and Mohanji, that He never shared with me.

But, all I know is, I am free from these attacks.

 

 The year of bliss

Ever since I met Mohanji, for the first time in 2015 (the year of transformation in His presence), I have been in a constant state of bliss, without any particular reason.

That year, I would wake up happy every day and spread smiles to the world. Every morning, I would share my experiences with Mohanji and many spiritual conversations with my father, during those beautiful sunny mornings in our lovely home garden. I call the year 2015, “The year of Bliss”.

The conditions in which I lived in Macedonia were far from perfect. I lived in an isolated village, where I had to travel for hours every day. This was after having lived in places, such as Geneva, in Switzerland; London, in the UK; and Singapore; where life was easier and far more convenient. Absence of conveniences of a well-developed city did not bother or affect me in any way. All I knew was – I was in Mohanji’s consciousness and He was taking care of my well-being at various levels.

It will always remain a mystery, the way Mohanji worked on me to miraculously bring me out of those two long years of suffering from deep anxiety and panic attacks, by just being in His presence for a day or two! I will never be able to explain this to anyone, apart from a few of my closest people, who had seen the change in me. Later, they too started following Mohanji and even met Him physically.

Guru is a principle which can operate through any medium, any being or any situation. Guru needn’t even be a walking, talking being. It can even be an understanding which happens in your mind. It can be the tree, or the leaves, or the wind. Certain revelations happen when we see certain things”. – Mohanji

As the days went by, I kept soaking in Mohanji’s consciousness, unlearning and letting go of the mind itself and transforming, for which I shall always remain at His lotus feet with deep gratitude.

flow with life

I must admit, that sometimes, I am gripped by this thought – “I am not any special being. Then, what is it that I have done in this life or past lives to deserve His divine love and protection?” I truly don’t know where would I be and how life would’ve been, without His grace and unconditional love.

I must also mention how His unconditional love was filling my own unfulfilled self-love needs, probably far more beyond what the eyes can see.

I look at Mohanji as God’s miracle and I hope that I am conscious enough to appreciate His presence in my life. I know that whatever I do will never be enough to honour the grace bestowed upon me, but I will keep striving to be my best forever.

I love you Mohanji!

The Lord of the Lions – The Truth

Mohanji with lion cubs

By Rekha Murali

“If you want to grow spiritually, root in EXPERIENCE, not in words, not in theories.” – Mohanji

I learnt the value of these words only through my experiences. As I connect with Mohanji more and more, I realise that it is the experiences that help me understand my spiritual growth. Experiences abound every day but how aware am I of these experiences? How much faith do I have to recognise these experiences as a blessing through the grace of the Master? Pain or pleasure, is it not learning? Is it not a dilution of the pre-destined karma? I bow to Mohanji, resting my head at His feet in complete surrender, with a humble prayer to remove what is not essential for me!

Each day of the past four years has brought forth so many experiences, some very minuscule and some so huge that it has shaken me out of my stupor. Some made me realise the depth of my connection with Mohanji, while others made me doubt Him. But since 2017, there has been a great shift within me, recognising the greatness of my Guru and I am now able to completely accept Him with deep devotion and faith! There may be tests in the journey but now I have the confidence the compassion incarnate Para Brahma is walking with me helping me jump over the hurdles with ease!

I now share with you an experience that showed me the invisible hand of the divine assuring me of protection and unconditional love. It showed me the true stature of my Guru, Mohanji! I felt His presence without presence deep within the core of my being!

The story begins…

On Mahashivratri, there were many miracles that took place at the ashram in South Africa. Reading the sharing by Swami Bhaktananda was mesmerising. Mohanji’s face in the picture had morphed into Lord Narasimha himself – the face of a lion! Lord Narasimha is the fourth of the ten primary incarnations (avatars) of Lord Vishnu, the Hindu God of preservation. The main purpose of the ten avatars was to restore cosmic order.

Going back to my story, I was overwhelmed by reading the beautiful write-up and wondered at the power of the lion-faced God – known as Narasimha or Narasingha. Singha in Sanskrit means lion. The next evening I sat down for my Consciousness Kriya (CK) practice. Those were the days when tears would roll down my cheeks for no apparent reason and during the practice of CK, I would weep buckets. At that time, I was also being initiated into the Mai-Tri Method and so a lot of baggage from my sub-conscious mind was getting cleared. I was being churned inside out by Mohanji! Kriya and Mai-Tri are a wonderful combination of cleansing. But that particular day, my Kriya session turned out to be different and specially blessed!

A key aspect that I need to mention before I get into my story is about Consciousness Kriya. Since my initiation into (CK) in January 2018, I have been very regular with it. I just felt the need to do my practice every day although I could not see any visible changes initially. Slowly I realised the depth of this practice. Initially, the changes were very subtle but soon, the experiences became more visible. That started a stream of many beautiful experiences, revelations etc. CK is such a priceless technique that enhances the practitioner’s communion with the Masters directly. It opens you up completely to the Consciousness and the connection with your Guru and Tradition deepens. I was not aware of this for a long time although I have had visions of great Masters and received many answers through various sources during Kriya. Sometimes it would just appear as a thought in my head! Kriya has opened up so many dimensions within me that I could have never imagined possible. First and foremost, it has helped me connect with Mohanji’s consciousness so deeply. Blessings abound everywhere and it is this sacred practice that helps me to be aware of it! Immense gratitude to Mohanji for opening this unknown part within me through this beautiful gift of Kriya!

So, while doing Kriya after Mahashivratri, I connected strongly with Mohanji’s consciousness and the tears started unabated. Along with my crying, I was aware of each step of Kriya and followed it diligently. Suddenly my breath increased in speed and I was gasping with the tears flowing incessantly. In a flash, I had a beautiful, inner vision (in my mind’s eye) of the most compassionate, the most beautiful face of a lion. The face was lit up with the loveliest of smiles and had the most gentle eyes. I quickly looked down and saw a human body along with the face of the lion. The lower portion was adorned with a beautiful yellow silk dhoti with a reddish magenta silk shawl draped around the waist. A word popped in my head – “Lakshmi Narasimha”, although I could not see Lakshmi. Normally Narasimha has his consort Lakshmi on his lap. My hands automatically joined together in Namaste.

Lord Lakshmi Narasimha

I was dazed and I felt waves of bliss. By then the Insight Timer beeped and I jumped out of my skin still crying. They were tears of joy and devotion. I sensed that the divine had appeared to bless me. I thanked Mohanji for this beautiful experience and relived the vision again and again in a state of bliss.

As usual, later on, the mind started doubting the entire episode. Was I hallucinating? Was my mind playing tricks because of the blog by Swami Bhaktananda? I looked at Mohanji’s picture and questioned Him too. I remembered Mohanji comment that every experience we have is our own.

I did share this with some members of the Mohanji family and a couple of dear friends. The comments I received were mostly ‘beautiful’ or ‘awesome’. I could not receive any clear answers or assurances for my lingering doubts. I was not sure if this was for real. But I could also very vividly remember the whole vision and I would tear up thinking about it. My body would indicate the truth of the vision.

Mohanji on experiences

 

The first confirmation…

Finally, Mohanji Himself chose to give me the answers. He soon put my mind to rest through Devi Amma. Devi Amma is a highly evolved spiritual Master and a disciple of Sage Agastya Muni. Whenever I pose questions to Mohanji, I always get clear answers from someone and this time I was blessed to get my confirmation from Devi Amma herself. Again, I attribute this to CK, as it has helped me physically be in touch with this Divine Master, Devi Amma. Moreover, Devi Amma and Mohanji are so deeply connected and they always speak as one. For me, speaking to Devi Amma is akin to being in the presence of Mohanji! I sense the same happiness, and gentleness that I experience in Mohanji’s presence. Both of them shower me with the same unconditional love and compassion. So, two days after the vision, it so happened that I got a chance to speak with Devi Amma out of the blue.

Devi Amma
An embodiment of Love

As we were speaking, I described this vision to her and asked her if I was hallucinating. She then explained the beautiful reason behind the vision assuring me that Lord Narasimha had indeed appeared to bless me. My hair stood on end and tears flowed. Devi Amma explained that Narasimha is the most compassionate of all avatars of Vishnu and He appears when a person is going through a lot of internal turmoil and stress. She explained that I’d bottled up all the emotions within and appeared cheerful on the outside. So he had appeared to relieve me of the burdens that I was carrying deep within, cleansing me, of which I may not be even aware of. She mentioned that it was happening because of my deep connection with my Guru. I was thrilled to hear this as I had seen the same compassion and love in Mohanji’s eyes, as I had in the vision. I felt extremely light in my heart and was full of gratitude to Devi Amma as she had in her beautiful way filled me with her unconditional love. I sent a silent prayer of thanks to Mohanji too and I felt extremely overwhelmed. Masters have spoken to me directly and have shown me that they are with me. This physical validation was because of CK which enables direct communication with masters.

Mohanji on experiences 1

My second confirmation…

That night passed peacefully and I was happy with myself. A couple of days later, (it was a Friday), I got further confirmation on the reality of this vision. It so happened that a distant relative whom I am not in touch with called me. After a general discussion, as a religious person, he started speaking about temples and Gods and he mentioned that he had been thinking about talking to me that very morning about Lord Narasimha! I shared with him my vision and he immediately mentioned that my maternal grandfather was as an ardent devotee of Narasimha and it was a genuine blessing from the Lord. This was my second confirmation. There was a lineage connection here as well, my grandfather being a devotee.

And the third one…

Soon after that, my husband and I left on a holiday to a nearby town (Pondicherry). We planned a visit to a temple of Ram on the way. I immediately sent a humble prayer to the Lord himself… My request was that if the vision was true, I would see the idol of Narasimha in the temple dressed in the colours that had appeared in my vision…yellow dhoti with the reddish magenta wrap!

After we worshipped the main idol and walked around, we came across another deity called Sudarshana. My eyes lit up immediately and with heart pounding, I went quickly to view the back of the Sudarshana idol. The reason for this is because, in all South Indian temples, the back portion of the Sudarshana idol has an idol of Narasimha sitting cross-legged in yoga and is popularly known as Yoga Narasimha!

Lo and behold! I turned the corner and saw that the Yoga Narasimha was dressed in a yellow dhoti with a magenta cloth draped around his waist. Normally in such temples, I have always seen the deities dressed only in white dhotis. The Sudarshana idol was also dressed in a white dhoti. I was stunned and with tears flowing, I prostrated with gratitude and surrender. This was clear proof of the vision that I had during CK. The colour of the clothes matched exactly with the vision. So the appearance of the divine during CK was a blessing indeed! What more could I ask for?

Experience and mind

The entire experience was truly enlightening and assurances were given in various ways till I was satisfied. We proceeded to our destination (a resort) and I was unaware of the other plans that Mohanji had in store for me. This was again a blessing! Looking at the beautiful lawn in the resort, a thought crossed my mind that it would be wonderful to do Conscious Walking here for the guests of the resort. Mohanji fulfilled that so easily by helping me approach the Events Manager who agreed immediately to my idea. I also suggested doing the Power of Purity meditation and within a matter of minutes, everything was finalised for the next day. Announcements were made and Mohanji ensured His presence without presence. During the Mohanji energy transfer, a participant felt someone standing next to her although I was nowhere near her. She also sensed a surge of energy, a tingling sensation in her body! It was the first time that she was doing a proper meditation!

 

Mohanji not only gave me the opportunity to conduct a POP meditation and Conscious walking for the guests of the resort, but He also ensured that every participant benefitted by it. Participants experienced the energy and bliss that everyone feels in the presence of Mohanji. Conscious Walking also had an enthusiastic group of participants and people were happy to have learnt something new during their holiday. They felt energised and were happy to take back something that they could practice at home on their own. He orchestrated everything and all that I had to do was just go with the flow.

Thank you, dear Mohanji, for the various tools such as Consciousness Kriya and the Mai-Tri Method to help me discard some of the deep-rooted karmic samskaras!

The patience with which Mohanji handled me, understanding my doubting, uncontrollable mind and sending me messages through various sources was astounding. He is always there holding my hand, guiding me on my path even if I am not aware of it. He is my Narasimha, wiping my tears, showering me with His love and compassion. Ever smiling and gentle, He lovingly puts my disturbed mind to rest and protects me through the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual upheaval. In this lifetime, my Narasimha is none other than Mohanji, who is compassionate incarnate. I always experience and see the same gentleness, unconditional love and compassion in Him that I saw in my vision of Lord Narasimha that day.

Dear Mohanji, I pray that you hold this Prahlada (devotee of Vishnu for whom he incarnated), your loving child close to you and never let go. On your shoulder, I merge into you with no worries and the faith that you as my Father, my Guru and My Narasimha will take me with you. You are Mohanji Narasimha!

Prahlada and Narasimha

Man thinks, God directs! This was experienced by Shivani Sanganeria as a simple desire that she had was fulfilled by our beloved Parabrahma in the most unexpected way! Read on and enjoy how the desire was fulfilled through this story in Chapter 8 of Mohanji Sacharita.

Please read other stories in our series – Mohanji Satcharita- Chapter 8!

 

Unexpected journey and communion with the Divine

By Shivani Sanganeria

 

I have known Baba (Mohanji) for the last 2 years, and my life has changed dramatically for the better. I have found my path, my guide and feel more connected to my soul.

One day while watching  Mohanji’s video on Shiva and Shivaratri, I decided to get a Shiva lingam (The lingam is the form symbol or the visible symbol of God, that which reminds us of the Omnipotent Lord, which is formless) for the auspicious day. I wanted to get it from Tarkeshwar, a well-known Shiva temple 2 hours away from Kolkata since I was planning to go there.

However, just days before Shivaratri, my husband had some work in Varanasi and asked me to join in as well.  I jumped at this fabulous opportunity to visit the holiest of all Shiva temples – Kashi Vishwanath and decided to get my Shiva lingam from there. I asked Mohanji mentally if it would be possible to meet Him there?  The answer was affirmative which I felt in my heart, and that made me more ecstatic.

On the auspicious day of Shivaratri, standing in front of Kashi-Vishwanath temple, I surrendered to Mohanji.  I hugged Nandi (the Bull-vehicle of Lord Shiva) tightly outside the sanctum and was overtaken with an intense feeling of love and bliss.  As I stepped inside the sanctum, I was overwhelmed with emotions, love for all, and bliss once again.  With Mohanji’s grace, all this was possible. After the beautiful darshan, I was also able to purchase a Shiva lingam.

One more event took me by surprise on this trip! My husband and I decided to go to Prayagraj for a dip in the Triveni Sangam (confluence of three rivers), which was completely unplanned.  What more could I ask for on this auspicious day? It was beyond my wildest dreams!!! I kept looking for Mohanji throughout the trip but could not find Him.

While returning, I silently asked Him that He did not meet me as promised, and voila! I got a reply. In that silent moment, it struck me that He did meet me.  He is Kashi Vishwanath, He is Shiva! 

mohanji-art-by-zoran

I was again flooded with the beautiful feeling of love and bliss that I had during the darshan of the Shiva lingam at Kashi Vishwanath Temple.  I also remembered the lines from the Mohanji aarati, “Vishwanath dharate hain dhyan, sharan hain tumhari” (Lord of the Universe, who is immersed in deep meditation, we surrender to you).

I now realize that He has not only shown me the path, He is the path and He is also the destination.

Words are not enough to express how I feel. Love you always Mohanji.

With total gratitude at your lotus feet.

Shiva is beyond explanation, notion, understanding, or even awareness. Shiva is The Beyond. It has no comparisons, it has no boundaries, it is beyond dimensions. It is an experience that the experiencer dissolves completely into.
It is Shiva.” – Mohanji

The Divine Hand

Jay Jeyaseelan, UK

K1

As the pilgrims get ready for their Kailash pilgrimage with Mohanji this year, I am reminded yet again of our time with Mohanji a few years ago, just after Kailash. With Guru’s grace, unexpected blessings are showered on us and all of our worries are taken care of, filling us with divine love every moment.

In 2014, a group of people went to Kailash with Mohanji, a pilgrimage of a lifetime. Some of our close friends from the UK also went on the trip, but we were not able to join the pilgrims because we had already planned a trip to the USA and Canada for that summer.

k2.jpg

Although we were having an amazing time, we kept thinking of Mohanji and our friends in Kailash constantly. Then, while traveling from California to Toronto, we had some very exciting news….. Mohanji was also coming to Toronto!

The family hosting Mohanji very kindly invited us and another family from the UK to visit Mohanji at their home, to a satsang at the Shirdi Sai Mandir and also to join them when they took Mohanji to the Niagara Falls. We were so blessed to have this special time with Mohanji, especially without having planned it as we didn’t know about Mohanji’s trip to Canada.

canada1.jpg

The highlight of the trip was sightseeing and going on the boat trip to Niagara Falls with Mohanji. Having coffee/tea with Mohanji at the Tim Hortons still seems like a dream! As we got ready to leave, the host family suggested if they could have a wax replica of Mohanji’s hande made at the Fun Factory nearby and Mohanji agreed. We asked if we could also have one for the UK and he kindly agreed again.

Mohanji_NaigraFall2.jpg

Making the wax replica of one’s hand involves dipping the hand into warm wax and then into cold water alternately. When the mould is thick enough, it’s removed from the hand and kept to set for a few hours. In the end, only one hand was done and we were going to bring it back with us to the UK.

After Mohanji went home, we waited a few hours and went to collect the beautiful white wax replica of Mohanji’s hand and noticed that there was a small strand of hair from Mohanji’s hand embedded in the wax. Now it was personalized by Mohanji! How lovely. We spent our last evening in Canada with Mohanji, having Shaktipat, Satsang, and singing bhajans. What a beautiful end to our holiday! Mohanji gave us plenty of chocolates and flower petals to keep in the box that had the wax hand, to share with our Mohanji family back in the UK.

Now the challenge was to bring the wax hand safely without damaging it during the long flight. We decided to carry it by hand to the plane and then take turns to keep the box on our lap on the plane. The lady at the security check wanted to know what was in the box. For some reason, she waited patiently for us to open the box and after having a quick look inside, decided not to rummage through it. This was very unusual as she was doing an impatient but thorough check in everyone else’s bags, handbags, etc.

As we embarked the plane we noticed how packed it was. It was a large Boeing 777 and all the seats seemed to be taken. Three of us sat on one side, and I sat on the other aisle side keeping the precious box on my lap, making sure no one jostled me. As the plane took off, we noticed that the plane was full, except the one seat next to me! How wonderful, we were able to place the box safely on the vacant seat and bring it back to the UK without any problems on the flight. Even the passenger sitting next to this seat was a very slim man, who would not disturb the box even if he moved about!

Mohanji_Wax_Hand

Mohanji says Guru and Grace are synonymous. Those precious days we spent with Mohanji in Canada, making the wax replica of Mohanji’s hand and the plane journey back home was all filled with His grace. Not a moment was our doing or planning. When we surrender with faith and gratitude, grace flows. This trip has changed me for the better. As faith and love in Mohanji grew, I began to notice many positive changes in me.

Some months later, when I narrated this story Mohanji, He said: “I know, your faith led the Masters to take care of it!” I felt the unconditional love, grace, and protection of Mohanji in that one statement. Almost 4 years later, this beautiful experience is still fresh in my memory.

Offering my love and gratitude at the divine feet of Mohanji,

Jay.

With Mohanji – Anecdotes from My Spiritual Journey

By Pramod Nair, UK

OM SAI RAM

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

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

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

Shirdi Sai Baba 3 a

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

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

A moment from the satsang in Bath

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

MY INNER REFLECTIONS WITH THE DIVINE

5th January 2018

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

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

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

Mohanji - sukshma sharira 5 shiva linga - vision by Pramod Nair, UK

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

4th Feb 2018

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

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

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

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

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

9th Feb 2018

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

Shiva blessing His devotees, Shiva Kavach

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

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

10th March 2018

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

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

16th March 2018

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

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

16th March 2018

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

3rd April 2018

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

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

THE HOLY CHANT: THE KEY TO ETERNAL BLISS

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

CHARANAM SHARANAM RAMAMBAKE

CHARANAM SHARANAM TRAYAMBAKE

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Incredible are the ways of true masters.

Beyond the Mind Can See – Mai Tri Healing Experiences from UK

Shared by Subhasree Thottungal, Dec 2017

 Mohanji blessing

With complete surrender to Mohanji, I would like to share a few experiences from Mai Tri Healing sessions which have started recently in London. These clearly show  how we feel Mohanji’s  presence with us and see beyond what the mind can see!

Vijaya’s experience

On 2nd Dec there was the first one. Sister Vijaya was taking the healing. I surrendered completely to Mohanji before starting the process. The process went on very well where I had absolutely no feeling of my own presence, as if I wasn’t even there! I felt Mohanji’s presence through his energy flow.

When we completed the process, sister Vijaya got up with a big smile and said she actually saw Mohanji! She saw Mohanji walking from afar from dark towards her. Bright light was surrounding him. His face was completely shining.

Then He actually spoke to her, two sentences, which was quite relevant to her. She also said during the process, “My hand stayed at one of my chakras where I felt having more blockages. After the healing, I felt much better. Of course, I had no idea where the blockage had been before and I didn’t even realise where I was keeping the hand longer. As I said, I had surrendered myself completely and during the process I had no feeling of my own presence.”

Listening to her experience, I conveyed my gratitude to Mohanji for being present during the healing.

Anonymous Experience

The second experience happened on 7th Dec. With due respect, I am keeping the receiver’s name anonymous here. I was meeting this gentleman for the first time and I had no idea of his reasons for seeking healing. It’s not important or necessary for a healer to have any background at all. As the healer is merely a channel here. It’s Mohanji’s divine energy that does the healing.

So before starting the process, I surrendered completely to Mohanji and prayed to Him to be with us. When the process started, I felt very intense energy flow and at particular chakras. I also saw Mohanji sitting on the chair next to us (where he used sit when He visited my home earlier), dressed up in his casual jeans and T-shirt and looking at us very intensely. I smiled inside seeing that Mohanji is here with us. There was pin drop silence. Suddenly, from nowhere, rain started. The sound of raindrops on the window was very loud. I immediately recognised, this is an indication of divine energy present with us at that time. Healing finished. Rain stopped! I bowed down to this divine supreme energy and my heart felt gratitude to Mohanji.

Little did I know till I got the confirmation from Mohanji directly that, ” It wasn’t even rain. It was shower of grace”! Ah what a wonderful experience this is. To me who is being an instrument in this divine process and to the people who are receiving the divine energy directly!

Vincent’s Experience

Vincent and his wife have been Mohanji’s followers for quite a few years and have attended the retreat programmes with Mohanji in London a couple of times. Lately, he has been going through severe back pain. He came for the healing session on 19th Dec, promptly at the time he had agreed. His eagerness and enthusiasm showed his surrender to the divine masters and was a very positive start.

We started the healing session with surrender to Mohanji and with a prayer to be with us. I felt Mohanji’s presence and very calming and peaceful energy flowing through the entire time. When we completed the session, Vince was so much in awe of the positivity, relaxing and calming effect, especially since he had come with no expectations, as he said. He also had a beautiful experience during the session. He shared his experience as below, “Thank you for the Mai Tri healing session. I had come with no expectations. During the healing I saw an iron moving across 7 deity pictures. It took me by surprise and on the stomach area and the calf muscles started to contract. But I felt a great or massive tingling through the body. For 2 days I had the sensations and feeling joyful and relaxed. A lot of visions coming up mostly related to past lives too. I am very thankful for this session and to Mohanji for this healing energy.”

Nilesh’s Experience

Nilesh have received Mai Tri healing from Devi earlier this year as a distant healing, when he was in hospital for some illness. He had a very positive experience from that healing and he wanted to have the healing sessions again. Off late he was feeling very emotional and something was bothering him that he wasn’t aware of. However, he felt a lot of blockages needed to be cleansed. He came with lot of devotion for Mohanji and complete surrender. When we started the session, immediately, I felt Mohanji’s presence and a very intense energy. The energy was so strong especially in a particular chakra that I felt as if I was shivering, my lower spine was burning. I saw Mohanji very intense and like fire!

When we finished the process Nilesh said he felt Mohanji immediately and as he closed his eyes, he saw Mohanji. He felt strong energy entering his body but soon he felt very relaxed and calm.

From the experience that I felt, through this process of healing, Mohanji has definitely cleared some strong blockages for sure and given Nilesh the protection.

A few days after this healing when I met Nilesh, he conveyed that, since that session, he has felt a lot better, lighter and his emotional imbalance has gone. He definitely looked much happier.

Rajkumar’s Experience

Rajkumar has been suffering from a severe skin problem for the past 3 months, at his very old age. After trying a lot of strong medications, there was still no relief. While being desperate for a relief from this suffering, he came to know about Mohanji’s healing process. Rajkumar had had the opportunity to meet Mohanji earlier and is very fond of Him.

When I went to his house for the healing session I saw him in tremendous pain. His whole body, hands full of rash, swollen, right hand even had some fluid. He was very frustrated with this long lasting trouble and looked very angry, too. He was desperate for the healing session.

After the healing session Rajkumar felt very calm and his uneasiness and frustration and anger disappeared. He requested to have continuous sessions for a few days. During the healing, I felt so much compassion from Mohanji, hence I gladly agreed to go next two days to have the sessions.

The next day when I went, Rajkumar opened the door and he had a big smile on his face. He said he felt much better than before. He showed me his hand which had been swollen and had had fluid the day before, that was now normal and skin was drying up. I wasn’t surprised, as I knew Mohanji’s healing was doing the job. But definitely I felt so much gratitude for Mohanji’s love and protection.

We completed the continuous three healing sessions and each day, he was feeling better. While his skin condition was improving, he was certainly much happier and relaxed. There was a release from other emotions that were happening and he was very much aware of Mohanji’s healing doing the cleansing of blockages.

As I continue to conduct the healing sessions with complete surrender to Mohanji and His healing powers with unconditional, non-judgmental love and compassion for everyone who is coming to receive the healing energy, my heart fills with gratitude and immense love for Him. I am witnessing different experiences of different people and getting a glimpse of how Mohanji is working on everyone tirelessly, unconditionally.

Through this healing, I notice improvement in my own condition, too, physically and spiritually.

I have started to realise slowly why Mohanji asked me to start doing Mai Tri Healing! Being a tiny instrument of Mohanji’s consciousness is the fulfilment, total oneness with Para Brahma, the Supreme consciousness!

Koti Pranam at Mohanji’s lotus feet for having showered everyone with His unconditional love and the round the clock protection. 🙏❤🙏

Mohanji
