Mohanji, The Eternal Guru: Far Yet Not Too Far!

DEEKSHA-ANCIENT-SYSTEM-OF-SHAKTIPAT-initiation-gurudevi

“When a student is ripe and ready, the teacher just needs to add a spark and everything lights up.”

Ekalavya, a famous character from the great epic Mahabharata in ancient India, illustrated an exemplary discipleship towards his Guru, Shree Dronacharya – the Guru of Pandavas and Kauravas. Being refused the proximity of the great master, Ekalavya did not give up and built a statue of his Master. With complete surrender and utmost faith and devotion, he started learning archery. He became a better archer than even Arjuna, the best archer the world knows!

The lesson we learned from Ekalavya is, whether you are in physical proximity of your Guru or not, when you call him with great devotion and surrender, the Guru will provide you with all the teachings and will make you (his disciple) even more powerful than himself.

GUru gives

“GURU Gives Everything”

Dronacharya, Ekalavya’s Guru also demonstrated the high stature required to be able to give everything that the disciple needed and uplift the disciple. Master gives everything to everyone each time at the right time, unasked. Mohanji has demonstrated this beautiful aspect of our grand tradition everytime!

In today’s modern day also, we are seeing many such Ekalavayas who demonstrate their excellence which has been achieved just through their complete surrender and focus to Guru, even though they do not have the proximity to Guru’s direct teaching.

A recent email that came from Pavan in Nashik that explained how after just one meeting with Mohanji and a Shaktipat from him, his spiritual growth in last 8 years have taken to deeper awareness staying completely connected to Mohanji’s consciousness even though he did not have another chance of meeting or hearing from Mohanji.

Below is a narration from Pavan as received via email.

“My name is Pavan. I am writing this letter to thank Mohanji after 7 years of practice, that he initiated me in my first and only meeting with him.

I met Mohanji in 2010 when he came to Mumbai. I am from Nashik. I speak Marathi. Because my English is not good, I am writing this message with the help of a English teacher who is a friend,

Mohanji had a free program in a school and one of my teachers told me that I should go there. I was always happy for knowledge and I did not want to marry and waste life. I am 27 now. I am writing this only because Mohanji changed my life completely with one 5 minute meeting and a shaktipat.

Grace of Shaktipat
Grace of Shaktipat

During the programme, there were many people and I was not able to come close to Mohanji there. But, I wanted to touch his feet. Then an aunty announced that Mohanji would deliver individual Shaktipat. We stood in a line. All people were asked not to speak to him.

I decided that I must speak. When I reached him, he asked me in Marathi, “Have a question?” I was shocked that Mohanji also is a Maratha. I did not know that. (Mohanji is actually not a Maratha). I asked him in Marathi.

“What is my truth?”

He said “Your breath”.

How to catch it?

He said “Manana and Kriya”

“Explain please”

He said, “Tame your breath through Kriya. Let breath be your thread. Then thread your breath within. It will remove your tendencies. Breath leads you to Freedom”.

By the time, the aunty told me to not to disturb Mohanji. Mohanji smiled asked me to close eyes and gave me Shaktipat.

shaktipat-by-mohanji

It was like a thousand-watt power into my brain from his eyes and fingers. I felt dizzy. I felt completely empty. I became breath. Whatever he told me, I experienced that moment.

After this Shaktipat, I could automatically practice this for hours every day.

I never met Mohanji again. Nevertheless, what he gave me changed my life forever. I have no money to go for big programs of gurus. However, without any money, Mohanji gave me everything I wanted for this lifetime.

7 years of practice, today I feel I have reached a stage where my awareness has grown, detachment with consciousness and I feel always connected to the supreme consciousness. This have been possible with just one Shaktipat of Mohanji.

GUru gives2.jpg

I am eternally grateful to the great Master Mohanji who gave me everything that I needed, without me even having to ask him.

Thank you Mohanji.

Yours sincerely,

Pavan.”

Such an honest and straight from heart expression from Pavan. During the seven long years where he had no communication or meeting with Mohanji, he was still connecting to Mohanji’s consciousness and kept on moving on in his spiritual journey. When he got the opportunity, he did not hideaway his gratitude and expressed in the best way he could do. Language was no bar!

He is probably one of the thousands that Mohanji has given such guidance, Shaktipat. Perhaps a word, a glance, a sentence or physical demonstration through his own life. However, how many have understood this aspect of the Golden Tradition or caught that thread and progressed ahead in life as Pavan has done?

M casual.jpg

Mohanji behind his unconventional, casual image, he stretches the rope of liberation towards everybody spontaneously who seeks with honesty and conviction.

Conviction, clarity and commitment can take disciples, as Pavan to miles ahead will also lead many more. Such honest exemplars will inspire many and their consistency will strengthen many.

Salute to the modern day Ekalavya, Pavan for sharing his incredible journey and gratitude to Mohanji for continuously showing everyone the path to liberation rising above the barrier of caste, creed, language and physical proximity.

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.

Vibhutti - With Mohanji - Anecdotes from My Spiritual Journey 11

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.

With Mohanji - Anecdotes from My Spiritual Journey 12 Pramod Nair, UK

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.

Grace of Mohanji – Beyond Science

Author: Dr. Nikita Naredi, Pune, India

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune

A flickering flame ignited five years back has now expanded into a crackling fire, creating a warm and wholesome hearth in my soul, that illuminates the path to my destination – my Guru, Mohanji. As you must have guessed, the duration of my association with Mohanji is nearing 5 years. The transformation He has brought in me, my life and my overall persona is beyond words. This is the change I perceive in myself and my nearest family (my daughter, my husband, my parents and siblings) can overtly see in me. I don’t need not to put this testimony in words to prove their veracity as everyone connected to Mohanji (I call him lovingly as “Father”) can vouch for the truth of their experiences. If He says, “I am with you”, then He is always with us walking by our side, helping us in our day to day dharma, removing all our impediments and facilitating our growth both spiritually and as human beings.

All of us who are positively connected to Mohanji have had super experiences of Him touching our lives. It behooves us to pen them down these experiences so that, during our moments of darkness, they serve as a guiding light for us to dispel negativity and reaffirm faith by showing us the immense grace that has been showered by the Master in our lives. It also helps show the beacon of light to other people including our M family members to repose trust in the Divine that is always earnestly working for our well being.

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune 2

I am a gynaecologist specialising in IVF (in vitro-fertilisation) – medical speak for what is commonly known as making test tube babies for couples who are unable to conceive. The success rate of this procedure is low with the best of centres across the globe hovering around 45-50% i.e. in the best of the best, 1 in 2 couples succeed in conceiving. The results in my clinic are very good with Mohanji’s grace. Mostly, it is 45% and in certain months, it goes up to 55%. I take no credit for that because I know He is facilitating every procedure that I am doing. Earlier, I used to feel sad for couples getting negative reports. During one of my meetings with Him, He said, “Surrender it to me, irrespective of whether good or bad, and believe Mohanji is performing it.” Since, I have stopped taking ownership for anything that happens in my clinic and react neutrally.

I want to share one of my experiences which is beyond the realms of science and will be difficult to comprehend for a normal person who is working only with the narrow domains of mind and reasoning. This particular couple, married for 8 years with no children, reported to my clinic for fulfilling their dreams of parenthood. They were very anxious as they had two failed attempts of IVF performed earlier elsewhere. We started their evaluation and, after counselling and explaining the existing problem, I recommended IVF treatment for them. Soon we commenced the IVF treatment for the couple. IVF treatment, in short the eggs of the women are taken out of the body under anaesthesia and fused with husband’s sperms outside the body and once the embryo (baby) is formed, it is put into the woman’s uterus. For this, the lady has to take lots of injections for almost a month which can be both physically and psychologically very challenging. The worst is the uncertainty of the outcome.

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune 3 Grace

When we started the procedure for the couple, I told them to get connected to Mohanji and they started attending the Power of Purity meditations regularly. The husband started feeling at peace and he started participating in all our service activities too.  Soon, he became an ardent devotee of Mohanji. After the first failed cycle, we started the third cycle with complete surrender to Mohanji. The husband was teaching the kids from slums at ‘Mohanji Kaa Aangan’ in Pune with full sincerity, love and devotion. I knew Mohanji was taking care. I started the third cycle of IVF and after a tumultuous month of injections and procedures, the final procedure was done and the time for results approached. I had no expectations this time. Lo and behold! The result was positive and she had conceived twins. It might seem very obvious this time but this is not what I wanted to share. The journey of Mohanji’s blessings in their lives had just begun with pregnancy.

After around 4½ months of pregnancy, the lady started having very high blood pressure. High blood pressure during pregnancy is a very severe disorder, especially if it happens during early months. High blood pressure during pregnancy can be fatal for the mother if not treated in a timely manner. If the blood pressure can’t be controlled and the pregnancy is very early, the only cure is to remove the pregnancy to save the life of the mother. For this particular lady, her first blood pressure recording was very high at 180/120 (normal is 120/80). We admitted her and started her on medication to control the blood pressure. I was anxious and apprehensive. An uncomfortable  thought had come to consider the possibility of aborting her pregnancy if the blood pressure could not be controlled. Then again, who was I to decide the course when Mohanji was taking care?

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune 6 Grace

It was a happy moment for us when her pressure was controlled soon enough but we knew we would have to monitor her very closely. Such cases would require high doses of drugs or, in some cases, a combination of two or more medicines to control the blood pressure. I called the couple and told them that we have a long way to go to finally reach the stage of having a successful pregnancy outcome without any harm to the mother and the babies. Only one thing was required: complete surrender to Mohanji. They started chanting daily and continued the POP meditation daily, while I and my team were looking after the lady’s medical condition. It is a miracle that, till 8½ months of pregnancy, her blood pressure remained under control with a minuscule dose of medicines. The babies were growing adequately with no complications.

Blood pressure during pregnancy is associated with many complications – fits and liver failure being some of them. This lady had no such problems as well as no increase in number and dosage of drugs. It was only in the end (about 8½ months of pregnancy) when the babies were mature enough that the blood pressure started increasing again despite the medicines. At that point, we decided to carry out her delivery for the safety of the mother and the babies. She underwent a Caesarean section and delivered two beautiful, cute daughters who they subsequently named Nitya (Eternal) and Niyati (Destiny).

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune 4 Grace

It’s beyond our scientific knowledge to explain this miraculous protection throughout the pregnancy. In cases of high blood pressure in early parts of pregnancy, we have generally had to sacrifice the babies for the safety of the mother. In this couple’s case, not only did we avoid abortion, but the healthy babies were also delivered against all odds. Surely, this lady and her beautiful daughters were completely under the protection of Mohanji! Their surrender, utmost faith and Mohanji’s blessings gave us a successful and fruitful outcome. Lucky are the two angels who were blessed by Mohanji in person when He visited Pune. Divinity, grace, compassion and unconditional love was exuding when they were in His arms.

Another lady who is also a Mohanji devotee as well as my patient had a failed first IVF cycle. She was very composed when she heard the report. When she met Mohanji subsequently, He said “It was not meant to happen this time”. He suggested her to visit Kukke Subrahmanya temple in Karnataka before going through the next cycle. She expressed her desire to have twins and Mohanji smiled as if to say Tathasthu (So be it). Subsequently, when we carried out her second cycle, the Divine was with her. Guess what! She had twins – a boy and a girl!

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune 5 Grace

This is just a drop of the ocean of blessings from Mohanji in my patients lives and mine. I feel His presence in my clinic which is officially called the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Centre. For me, it’s my temple since He remarked, “I stay here” on one of His visits to the centre. Since the month, He visited and blessed the place the success rates have just boomeranged to 63% from the usual 45-50%. We are only a channel for the Divine to carry out it’s work. The grace and blessings of the Master help us sail through.

Mohanji - experience by Dr Nikita Naredi, Pune 7 Grace

Science and technology have definitely helped us progress and help these anxious couples but the role of the Divine and the grace always reigns more supreme. During one of my conversations with Mohanji, He had mentioned “The devotee’s surrender forces Me to cut down their karmas to such a great extent that it is unfathomable”. Every moment, I thank Mohanji for guiding me, blessing me and spreading His love and grace so that I am able to bring happiness in people’s lives.

Jai Mohanji

A Different Dimension of Mohanji

Written by Biljana Vozarevic

Mohanji i Bilja FB 3

On 23rd February is Mohanji’s birthday and a very auspicious day for selfless actions, charity, helping the needy, then spiritual practices, prayers, chanting and connecting to the Highest. This Friday, like every day, I fed my flock of pigeons in front of my balcony first. I poured a few kilos of wheat. About 30-50 pigeons happily flew down to have breakfast, wheat grains.
The day before, I was happy to hand over the last full car boot of clothes out of three to Adriana, for ACT Serbia clothes and food donation activity in Petrovac na Mlavi. I am grateful to all my students and parents from „Speak Up“ school who donated their clothes or the clothes which their children had overgrown. You really did a great job.
Before this day, I thought how I would be busy with classes in two shifts, morning and afternoon until late at night and in between with making a cake for my son Vukasin’s 15th birthday celebration which was to be on Saturday. His birthday was on Wednesday but we were preparing for the Saturday celebration with his friends. No place for silence, spiritual practice, chanting, prayer, I thought. “That’s life“ I was consoling myself, “I must be practical.“ So I appreciated the day as I expected it to continue.

However, how the day continued was totally unexpected.

I had one morning class and was waiting for the next one. The student didn’t come.

I had time to go home and prepare the cake. Immediately after that, I squeezed in some moments with myself and focused on the best wishes for Mohanji’s birthday. I wanted to write a poem, and there it came! Just flowed out of me. Here it is:

Happy birthday Mohanji - poem by Biljana Vozarevic

I managed to write it in a few minutes but didn’t have time to make a poster. “I’ll make it tonight, I thought.“ And I did. I rushed to school and, unbelievable but true, I managed to arrive in the nick of time. I took off my jacket, unpacked my things, to find out that my hands were dusted with fragrant white-greyish flour-like powder. Oh, Gosh, my vibhuti! The sacred ash spilled all over the pocket in my bag.

Mala, vibhuti
Out of several things, I have kept mala in the pocket, too.

Don’t misunderstand me. It did not materialise out of thin air. This vibhuti had been in a well folded little plastic bag and then wrapped in its paper wrapping. I got it when I first went to India in 2011. I had kept it there all the time and it had been safe for 7 years. But after so long, untouched and with the wrapping undamaged, now, like ceremoniously thrown confetti on a celebration, it was all over my bag pocket. How did it happen? I didn’t know. I remembered that maybe Mohanji was playing with me. I took and ate some I also put some on my crown chakra. Cheers! I said to Him silently, within. Happy birthday! I feel Him very close to me.

 

Then I sat to start with classes. The student didn’t come. “Wow, I have time now to sit quietly and enjoy the silence and prayer, chanting,“ I felt, relieved.

An hour passed. I waited for the next student.

The next student didn’t come, either.

Good heavens! I sat and used the second hour for sitting quietly and enjoying the silence and prayer, chanting. I was melting in bliss, my eyes welled up with tears.

After the second hour, and in total, the third empty class that day, I really felt I managed to use the day for what my heart longed for – it was not hectic  and I was not turned to external world all day as I had thought I would. I was gifted something precious. Later on my classes continued regularly until late at night.

There have been too many coincidences here to be usual sequence of events. I know Mohanji took part in it and blessed me with His presence, showing me even physically one of His different dimensions, His presence in a totally different, but for me easily understandable way.

Dearest Mohanji, I love you sooo much. You love everyone who connects to You and in spite of numerous devotees, nobody stays unattended.

Mohanji’s Divine Presence

Mohanjis Divine Presence 1

Shri Guro paramam rupam viveka chakshushomratam,

Mandabhagyaa na pashyanti andhah suryodayam yatha|

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

When one has pure devotion and surrender to the divine, divine will appear in any form. There have been many truly connected Mohanji’s followers, who have felt His presence in various occasions either via direct visions or even through indirect but realistic indications.

Two such sincere and honest experiences are described below, which clearly shows how Mohanji’s divine presence have been felt by these true devotees.

 

Mohanji is ever pervading!         Mohanjis Divine Presence 2

Experience shared by Mr. Sankaranarayanan, Priest, Chenakkathoor Temple

I was in Sabarimala temple assisting the Chief Priest during the season from November 2017 till mid Jan 2018.  Lord Ayyappa temple Sabarimala, situated on a hilltop, is located in a forest Pathanamthitta, Kerala.

Lord Ayyappa is the son of Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu who appeared as “Mohini”, the beautiful lady, was born to bring an end to the demon Mahishi. Ayyappa, as a baby was adopted by the king Rajashekharan of Panthala and named as Manikanda. Later on, at about the age of 12, taking the vow of celibacy, Manikanda left the palace and went up the hill to Savarimala and resided there as Lord Ayyappa.

This temple is one of the most sacred temples in India and is open in specific days of a year. Reaching the temple is not so easy. Pilgrims have to walk on foot about 4 km through the thick forests or get to the river Pamba and then climb the hill for about 5 km. In order to come to the temple, the devotees have to follow strict traditional practices, rituals, preparations and dress codes. In preparation for their visit, pilgrims wear black beads around their neck, dress in black or blue mundus/dhotis and abstain from the consumption of non-vegetarian food and alcohol for 41 days. They also take a vow of celibacy for the 41 days prior to their pilgrimage.

Despite the strict rules and physically straining path to reach the temple, 100s of thousands of pilgrims arrive in the season when temple is open.

To go inside the temple to the sanctum sanctorium, the pilgrims have to climb the 18 steps called “Pathinettapadi”. These steps signify a very important message, that in order to reach the divine, you must be free from the 5 human senses, 8 negative attitudes (ashtaragas – kama, krodha, Lobha, Moha, Madha, Maltsarya, asooya, dhumb, 3 Gunas (Satva, Rajas, Tamas) and the rise above knowledge and ignorance.

When you rise above all these 18 steps, you reach Ayyappa, divine, you become one with Him!

During the end of December 2017, a few people from Chennai City visited Sabarimala. They had met Mohanji, who was visiting Chennai at that time. Mohanji had directed them to meet me as he was aware that I am in the temple in this season assisting the chief priest. They approached some of my colleagues to meet me for some special rituals and gave Mohanji’s Card to one of them. Later on my colleague handed over the card to me. I arranged the rituals that the devotees requested. I had also taken tokens for special darshan for them in the evening. However, I could not meet them after the rituals. I searched them everywhere but I could not find them amongst the crowd.

The Chief Priest and his brother saw Mohanji’s divine Card (for the first time) and were amazed by the power of Mohanji’s glowing eyes.

During the evening pooja session, one of my colleagues came to me and told me “Sankaran, your Guruji has come to the temple for darsan! I ran towards the sanctum sanctorum to see Mohanji. I was deeply surprised because I knew that Mohanji was not in Kerala and how could they see Mohanji here in Sabarimala! And there was no warning from anybody that Mohanji was coming here. On the way, many of my other colleagues also told me the same as they all had physically seen Mohanji. One of them even asked me whether we should book accommodation for Him. All 18 of my colleagues saw Mohanji! I was in a total shock and searched Mohanji but I didn’t see Him anywhere!

It was evident that Mohanji appeared in sookshma (subtle form) in the temple. His appearance had multiple messages. This showed a deep meaning to some of those people who were skeptical and even had remarked that these modern gurus are all fake.

To me, it indicated Guru’s protection and love towards me, that even though he was in Chennai at that time, He responded to the skepticism or some of my colleagues to save me from any kind of explanation or proving to anyone about my Guru.

Mohanji takes care of His disciples, as He can take care of Himself. He does allow people to fall in frequency by not understanding Him though. But, when it is a question of protecting a true follower, He never misses.

I clearly understood Mohanji is everywhere and we cannot understand HIM till we rise up those 18 steps to reach to the divine himself!

Deep gratitude my Guru for your timely actions and showing me every time your presence. Thank You!

Power of Purity!  Mohanjis Divine Presence 14 left

Experience of Mrs Nalini as shared by Devadas from Palakkad

Mrs Nalini is about 65 years old and have been practising Power of Purity Meditation at the Shirdi Sai Baba temple in Palakkad for last 2 years. Right from the day 1, she has had visions of Mohanji very vividly.

Recently, one day she called my wife Anila and said, “You know, Mohanji came near me three times today. First time it was with white kurta and dhothi, it was blue kurta and saffron dhothi second time and final one was with white kurta and saffron dhothi wearing black slippers. I could feel his breathing falling on my hands”. Anila explained about her strong connection with Mohanji.

Mrs Nalini is used to telling us these kinds of experiences from her first Power of Purity meditation.

Sometimes she will see Mohanji standing in water and blessing her, sometimes Mohanji will become Krishna and bless her. Similar to what 75 year old Taiji from Delhi had experienced which she converted into Sahasra naam of Mohanji (thousand names), Mrs. Nalini has also started seeing Mohanji in many forms. Devotion, connection and conviction draws the master to you and he appears to you as per your flavour and intensity of connection.

When Mohanji visited Palakkad in December 2017, a few of us were sitting with Mohanji having a small satsang. He casually asked Anila about the meditations in Palakkad. She started talking about the general aspects of it.

Suddenly Mohanji asked Anila, “Did that lady tell you about my visit to her house?” We were amazed that the experience that Nalini aunty shared with us was what Mohanji was telling us too! It was like a shock wave.  But we all realized once again, Guru is everywhere, we just need to have the eyes to see him! Another realization. Deep gratitude. Jai Mohanji!

Honest and sincere experiences like these only confirm the below verse from Guru Gita, that Lord Shiva Himself had explained to Devi Parvati about Guru and Guru principle.

“Akhanda Manadalakaram Vyaptam yena Charaacharam

Tadpadam Darshitam Yena Tasmai Sri Guruve Namaha”

 

Salutations to Shri Guru, who has revealed that state which pervades the entire sphere of this Universe, which is composed of animate and inanimate objects.

 

Blessed are those souls, who in this life, are able to realize the value of Guru principle and can feel the presence of Guru in every form, every moment, everywhere!
