EMpowered by Mohanji – 6

By Linda Abrol, Netherlands

Part 2

Yesterday, I allowed myself two cookies as a dessert after dinner and fed some to the ducks. The cookies contained chocolate, gluten and sugar, the three items that my body resist very much. For many years I had had the habit of taking something sweet once a day, after diner, even though I knew it was difficult for my body to process. I did this because total suppression of my craving for sweet food had an adverse effect. This was an effective compromise that made me enjoy the ‘sinful moment’ a lot. It was so much better than randomly taking these food items during the day. A very good step 1! After a long time, I was ready for step 2. I replaced the sweets or cookies by something more healthy and acceptable for my body. My stomach ache got less and allergic reactions as well. I slept better.

Craving also got less but is easily evoked. When Mohanji spoke yesterday to a lady about offering food to the animals when food-intake has become a habit and takes over, I regarded it as permission to start again with my after-dinner sweets-habit and gave some cookie crumbles to the ducks. They do have problems digesting grains, I have been told recently, but I gave it anyway. It was so little.

The next morning Mohanji said inside: ‘You didn’t do me a favour.’ He said it in a humoristic way, half smiling.

Before he said this, I felt his energy right inside of me, which felt amazing, and I had told him that he was so welcome to take over the wheel. After hearing his words, I realised what had happened: my action of yesterday was quite illogical. I had already successfully stopped with a habit and had replaced it with something much more effective. Now I interpreted Mohanji’s teaching of yesterday in my favour and went back to my old pattern. But since he was inside of me, he ‘suffered’ the consequences.

This reminds me of an incident of many years ago. My food habits were much of a problem at that time. I over-ate frequently, but after I had met Sri Sathya Sai Baba, one morning I heard his voice inside of me saying: ‘What did you eat? I ate aspirin yesterday.’ In two simple sentences, He made our unity clear and made sure that I understood that the God part in me was suffering from over-eating because it is much more difficult to raise my frequency to concentration and meditation levels. So the benefit of eating consciously has great advantages on the spiritual path. I love that both Sai Baba and Mohanji don’t judge me like I used to do myself. They just kindly made me aware of the consequences. That is very helpful. Love you, Mohanji!

Part 3

While I was sitting in my little temple this morning, the thought came: will I be as forgetful as my parents? They both had Alzheimer’s disease. I realised that my thoughts were not helping me and let them pass. Suddenly I heard Mohanji say inwardly: ‘I will give you so much of love that you will forget everything!’

What a beautiful message! Picking me up from where I was, he turned me into a whole new direction! My heart jumped, and my spirit got elevated to bliss level.

Today while doing the practice, I went into the cave of my heart. I found Mohanji there, embracing me and never letting me go. I could do nothing but cry. Totally in bliss, I forgot everything. The pain that I have, because my dear mother is dying at this very moment in time, vanished and turned into bliss, bliss, bliss. I love being forgetful! How is this possible? How can one feel blissful while her mother, whom she is so close to, is dying? I know I will cry a lot in the coming days, but I am sure this will carry me through the process. Thank you, Mohanji!

By Mimnasa Arora, India

This is my very first event with Mohanji; I have never met him physically or been in any live session. Since day one, at the start of the session, my head and the back of my neck started feeling very heavy, this remained like that for some minutes, but my mind was telling me that it was just any normal ache, the same happened on the 2nd day and on the 3rd day as well. On day 3, I had severe sinus issues and was hardly able to work that day because of a runny nose and teary eyes, this continued even during the session, and I was hardly able to focus or keep myself straight seated. Then somewhere in the middle, when Mohanji mentioned that he was working on all of us, I started expressing my gratitude and suddenly, within seconds, my whole nasal passage just got cleared; there was no sign of cold!

As someone who has had sinus problems for quite some time, I don’t experience such a clear passage very often. When I started expressing more gratitude, I could feel a lot of pressure on my 3rd eye and crown chakra. Now I know very well that it was all Mohanji’s doing and his way of working on us. My deepest gratitude to Mohanji, may we all always be under his protection.

EMpowered by Mohanji – 5

Radha Ambat, India

Empowered day 2 experience: I want to express deep gratitude for having received the highest wealth a life can offer from the two sessions attended with Mohanji. Words cannot describe the happiness and bliss I felt during the sessions, the empty feeling, the lightness and happiness. He is boldly leading us from utter confusion to ultimate truth by showing us how to change, like our pulling habits, patterns, and deep wounds that bind us here. He is leading us, holding on to the values, walking us through the prescribed ideals in this established and strong path in our way to find the truth. The mere thought of having the chance to learn under his care and protection while we walk with him in the coming days gives indescribable happiness. He is guiding us, keeping us under his strong wings, boldly as a mother holding her babies, towards the ultimate truth with the very fact that he himself is the ocean of truth is just bliss. I offer and express immense gratitude to my Guru, who is the light, and feel the highest joy in every moment while he reveals the way and holds us with him. Jai Mohanji.

My experiences of the Empowered program were beautiful and transformative. On the first day, my emotions reached an extreme level and then slowly calmed down; I felt tired the next day but tried to concentrate on the program. In the following days, I slowly gained discipline, feeling more energetic and focused. After one of the sessions, I felt warm energy passing through my body. As I felt more silent within, I realized it was Mohanji’s beautiful energy that I was experiencing and felt so blessed. I have received the divine blessings of my Baba, whom I love dearly and who is my only destination. I bow at the feet of Mohanji and surrender myself to his abundant power. I feel more confident day by day. Thank you, Mohanji!

I woke up with a heavy heart this morning with too many thoughts and anxiety about a decision. From 3 to 5 in the morning, I was trying to pause-withdraw-return; but nothing seemed to be working. At 6:00, I called a friend from the Mohanji family, practically discussed everything and agreed on a plan about the current situation. I still felt a little heavy, and then at 6:30 got a confirmation from Mohanji, ‘I am with you’ via a message. The moment the evening session started, I felt as if he was talking to me; he kind of dissected everything I had gone through in the morning and made me understand what I was doing and how I was suffering due to my own mind, patterns, resistance and ownership about the given situation. He is working on each of us and peeling the layers so that we can see the reality, our true self. Blessed are we to have him guiding us in such an amazing way. Thank you, Mohanji. No words can ever express the gratitude I am feeling for you and for this experience. Sending you all lots of love, may we all be empowered and become the divine instruments to spread the light.

Ash (Sonia), Muscat

My experience of 11 Days of Empowered with Mohanji and the M Family is difficult to describe in words at the state I am in at this moment in time. I got a chance to speak to Mohanji; like many of us, all my questions were subtly answered by my beloved Mohanji. But I still wanted to thank him and pay my gratitude. Any words or feelings will look small in front of what Mohanji is and has been for all of us. Like Mohanji mentioned, if you have a transformation, talk about it. I got very overwhelmed when it was my turn to talk, so here I am writing about my transformation. I have a 32 months old toddler, and my husband and I are staying in Muscat, Oman, away from home and family. I have been struggling to find time for my sadhana, chanting and yoga practice. I was waking up early, but I wasn’t finding enough time for myself to do all the above. Since I started the 11-day Empowered workshop, I have been waking up at 4:30 am consistently every day and taking a shower, doing my chanting, sadhanas and pranayama in the morning and then moving on to my daily chores. I haven’t felt better, and the feeling gets even much better and brighter with each day. Despite sleeping as little as 4 hours on some days, I feel much more awake than I would feel sleeping 8 hours. Quality of sleep has improved, awareness to stay in the moment is getting there, and so many emotions are being washed away. I wouldn’t say it was easy. The mind plays so many games. Mind capturing on words of Mohanji and telling me it is ok to be in-disciplined once in a while, but you are aware of it, so it’s ok, start tomorrow. But a very strong and determined voice of my Guru, my Mohanji, is telling me to wake up and wake up now, strong enough to make my mind quiet. I thank Mohanji for letting me be a part of this journey of becoming fearless, and I will work on these for the next two months before we meet Mohanji again in December for another power-packed transformation program. I surrender at my Father’s feet to bless me and help me walk this path of being fearless! Also, a big thank you to all the organizers for making the journey so smooth. Bless you, all. Shubhashree, a special thanks to you for the brightest smiles ever.

Anjali – Australia

This was my first workshop with Mohanji, and I can say it’s been a huge transformation for me. I could feel a lot of energy in my crown chakra and spine from the first day. The divine energy of Mohanji has given me so many blissful experiences during meditation and Kriya. The silence technique has helped me during Kriya and while communicating with family and peers. There is more silence, and I am more in the present moment. There is more clarity, and I’m able to get more work done in a short time. I feel my fears have dropped off too. I am able to voice my opinions more clearly and with stability at meetings with peers. Mohanji has answered many of my doubts directly and through questions asked by others. During the Silence meditation given by Mohanji, I had the most beautiful vision of Mohanji with me in the Blue Mountain Caves – Sydney, which I visited about 9 years ago. He was seated on a glowing stalactite and surrounded by gleaming stalactites and blessing me. It was the most beautiful vision and will be in my heart forever. This could never be my imagination. If I had to, I would have chosen the Himalayas. I feel blessed to be on this journey of liberation with my guiding light Mohanji. Thank you for everything, lots of love and gratitude.

Gratitude for Grace

By Mohanji Foundation South Africa

“When eating fruit, remember the one who planted the tree.”- Vietnamese Proverb.

It has been a difficult trek to get to the fruit, but as we enjoy the sweet nectar of the fruit as a team, we have immense gratitude for all those who helped us plant the tree.

Our journey to find land as Mohanji Foundation South Africa (MFSA) started in June 2016.

Our beloved Guru Mohanji, who is the inspiration, driving force and power behind our every action, visited South Africa in June 2016. He gifted us a substantial sum of cash which was a seed donation for this project. Thus, the seed was planted.

Sulosh Pillay and Roy Naidoo were a few of our very first benefactors for this project, each giving us a substantial sum of money to give our fundraising some momentum. Their donations inspired us, and we were able to start fundraising in earnest. Maheshwari Mohanji and her family led a wonderful “Buy a Brick” fundraiser, bringing in funds and motivating us even further.

It was with much excitement and huge hearts that we reached for the heavens. We viewed many properties way out of our price range from Knysna to Limpopo, hoping and praying that some huge benefactor would believe in our mission. Yugen Naidoo drove across the country to view properties and submit proposal after proposal to the team.

In 2016, we had a team consisting of Keshnie Pillay, Sulosh Pillay, Yugen Naidoo, Dineshran Naidoo and Nishal Mahadeo, who all flew to Port Elizabeth at their cost to view properties. Over three days, they drove the length and breadth of the Eastern Cape looking for a property. Their sheer dedication was inspiring.

Swami Bhakthananda went to many different prominent business people to canvas our project. He would come back dejected each time, but he would start again the very next day with even more determination.

It was not meant to be as the Universe meant for us to work really hard and feel the pinch of every earned cent. We had to squeeze our egos into place and go out to ask sponsors and devotees for money. Many of you reached deep into your pockets to help us with whatever you could spare. Many of you worked tirelessly to support this project in kind and with your blessings. Each cent and each blessing has brought us to this point where we can call a piece of land our own.

Our Shirdi Sai Murthi arrived in SA in February 2019. We were super excited, and He was stored at Swami Bhakthananda’s home, which is also the Dattatapovan Ashram in Westville. Swamiji had sleepless nights worrying about keeping Shirdi Sai in a box and went out of his way to look at land for constructing the Temple for Sai. Dozens of prospective sites were viewed by Swamiji and his team consisting of Nameshri Maharaj, Dhiren Naidoo, Prathiba Singh, Bhavika Amrathlall, Nazeema Botha and Ajay Singh.

Many others also helped search, and it will probably take us a few pages to name them all. This shows the power of what can happen when a group of like-minded and focused people come together for a higher cause. They not only looked for land, but they also spent endless hours raising funds. Each step they took, lead us closer to the goal we have achieved today.

In June 2019, we discovered an abandoned Temple site in Northdene. We were convinced that this was the one!!! We visited the site, did prayers, and Swami Bhakthananda spent many days clearing the area around the temple site. We followed all channels to see how we could purchase the property, but we found that the land was now in the hands of the Government. We applied through the correct channels to acquire the land and were disillusioned when it was held up in claims lodged for the land. This went on for many years, and we still held hope.

In February 2021, we were given an ultimatum at the Global Summit. Get your act together, or else Shirdi Sai has to move to another location where He can be installed. We all got onto the project with full force. Ami Hughes, Lakshmi Mohanananda, Shaloshini Naidoo, Keshnie Pillay, together with Swami Bhakthananda spent hours online together searching for a property while Swami Bhakthananda and his team would view the property for suitability. Shaloshini spent many hours documenting all the sites searched and included a feasibility analysis.

After many searches, we found a great piece of land in the Stanger area. Swamiji was ill but still made the trip to view the land with his team. This land was not easily accessible, and he didn’t like the very bad access roads. He was very disappointed, but light flooded in, and grace flowed. The estate agent said he might have something else for us. We dared hope that this would be the right one, and it was. Despite viewing a few more properties (one lovingly arranged by Keshnie Pillay), we decided on the 12-hectare piece of land, which we now call our own.

Once the team made the decision to purchase on 17 March 2021, it was a back and forth for Swamiji to get the paperwork all done. He followed up on every document and made sure that it was submitted on time. The paperwork was thus completed, and the first payment was made on 14 April 2021.

With scarcely enough to pay for the first payment, we were now back to worrying as the second payment was due by July 2021. A few generous donors came through, one from our board itself, and we managed to get the funds for the second and final payment.

On 03 June 2021, the second payment was made, and we breathed a sigh of relief. We were almost there. On 06 July 2021, the transfer was lodged, and on 09 July 2021, the transfer was final. This was pure grace, as anyone who lives in SA would tell you that this usually takes months. The lawyer had also told us that this would take up to 3 months. Its only Mohanji’s grace that flowed and fast-tracked it all.

We now could not wait to have the title deed in our hands. On the blessed occasion of Ganesha Chathurthi and the birthday of Sri Pada Sri Vallabha, we got the news that the title deed was ready for collection.

We had a time frame of a week to collect the title deed, and Swamiji was away for the week, so he asked that the team collect the title deed. This was done on 16 September 2021. After collecting the title deed, we went to revisit our land, and we were surprised to see that a once fully dried-up stream was now actively flowing, although relatively small, through the entire property. We looked at this as even more grace flowing into our project.

This project could not be possible without the efforts of every team member of MFSA, Swamiji and his team at Dattatapovan Ashram and every single one of you. This collective power is what got us here, and we bow in gratitude to each of you.

We wish to thank the following people (in alphabetic order) who we have on record as having contributed to this project. We may miss many of you in this list as there were no references in many of the deposits. We also wish to thank all those nationally and internationally who support our programs. Our success is due to your consistent efforts.

We still have a long and exciting journey to complete. To the incoming board and project team, we bless you with strength and empowerment to see this project to final completion. We express our thanks to Mr Duggal and the global management team for all the guidance and advice over the past weeks, enabling us to maintain our momentum.

Through our many storms and trials, we have made it past a huge hurdle. When the power of intention is strong, and there is purity in our actions, we can achieve more than we anticipated. Please do keep connected with us for more developments with this project.

We lay this project and all its successes at the feet of our Guru Mohanji.

EMpowered by Mohanji – 3

by Shruti Singh, Australia

Firstly, my gratitude to the team for organising the event for us to be with Mohanji.

I know Mohanji is always helping me to improve myself as a better human every day. From Day 2 of the programme, I was able to feel some changes happening within me mentally and physically. A lot of cleansing was taking place. On Day 4 during the session, I started feeling some heaviness in my body, especially my forehead. 

Day 5 I woke up with a bad headache on the centre of my forehead (third eye). I started my day with water intake and realised my pain was shifting to an extreme level. By 9 am I started vomiting, which continued for the rest of the day. I could not digest food, water, or medicine; everything I tried to consume was coming out. I felt a severe cramp in my stomach as I tried to intake and vomited. By 3 pm, my husband called for a telephonic appointment with the Doctor, for which I waited for 3 hours and didn’t receive any call back.

Suddenly, one of the Mohanji’s Acharyas called me around 7 pm to pass some communication and asked, “Are you OK?” I shared my day’s experience, and she replied with assurance, “Don’t worry, you will be OK before the session.” She asked me to have Baba’s Udi dissolved in water and take small sips. 

I was able to understand in my awareness that the message was clearly coming from Mohanji. I immediately had the water; this was the only medicine or water I was able to take in the entire day. 7:45 pm I went to deep sleep with a calmness coming to my body. 9 pm I woke up with pain having subsided 90% and no vomiting. Happily, I was able to sit for the session.

I offer my gratitude to Mohanji for allowing me to feel his presence and showering his blessings on me.

by Payal Kaul, Delhi, India

Jai Mohanji! Shat shat Pranaams!

The workshop conducted by Mohanji is infinite in nature. It does not have any beginning or end, as rightly shared by Baba. In the night, we bow to Shivji for dissolution, in the morning to Narayana (Vishnu) for creation and existence. It has become a deep practice for me to say prayers in the morning between 5-6 am and especially end it with the Shanti mantra. I am fearless and feel the freedom to express the Truth.

Every morning I feel The energy of Baba around me waking me, “Get up and leave your inertia,” so that I can begin my day joyously showing gratitude to every little thing in the world. It happened so this morning too at 5:00 am. I could feel Baba’s energy while the packet kept by my bedside was making a ruffling sound (to wake me up). I was so surprised to see that it kept moving till I woke up and kept it aside. In the night, it was not moving. Otherwise, I would not have slept. Isn’t it amazing? 

I can see Baba in me while I inhale and exhale my breath both times. I am using the pause technique, and it’s effective. Even if some person gossips with me, I change the topic by directing them towards positive thoughts. Such is the influence of our divine Mohanji. Love you so much. 

This workshop has changed my life, my attitude towards lots of things. I am on a path of light. I would also like to thank Aditya Nagpalji for helping me join the program.

Love you Mohanji. Gratitude for being my Baba!

by Ami Hughes, South Africa

It came all too quickly – the final day of the 11-day workshop – Fear to freedom – the deconstruction of the lead-weights of 800 + participants was subtle – very subtle, and it was from the deepest levels of our beings.

The Master was in Masterful Action. Mohanji got us tuning in from the get-go. Throughout the multi-layered and inter-dimensional workshop, he reminded us that this was a Grand Collaboration striving for that something higher – the unchangeable, permanent Truth – the real Truth of ourselves.

I’m still open-mouthed at the extent and depth of heaviness that Mohanji cleared and lifted from each of us. Love incarnate, Mohanji was Compassion speaking. He was Compassion in action. He sometimes slowed down the pace and repeated significant points so that everyone ‘gets it’ and were on the same page.

If I think about how I can describe the day-to-day unfolding of the workshop, it would be this:

I was swaying to the rhythm of life, a patient, slow, elevating and elegant dance – withdrawing inwards and ever spiralling upwards with the graced intentions of transformation – from that of confusion to clarity.

By the second day of the precious gift of this workshop, I was mesmerised by Mohanji’s brilliant white light auric field. It was shimmering and translucent. As I gazed at him, his whole form at times appeared to de-materialise in a white glowing haze and re-materialise.

I just gazed at him, my eyes transfixed and lashes wet with unshed tears. I was deeply, deeply moved. It was so beautiful. In my contemplation, I still clearly feel and see the blazing white purity of his presence, his beingness utterly pure in essence – his purity in presence.

How do I fully describe the way and the extent to which Mohanji gave of himself and lifted us out and up from the gross as he opened our inner channels to experience the higher dimensions of ourselves? I don’t think I can fully do justice to it, except to say that I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in this extraordinary Cosmic Grand Collaboration. It felt like a continuous 11-day Shaktipat blessing.

If we only knew just how much karmic density and debris Mohanji cleared from us! He was not holding back. He filled our cups as per our capacity, as per our emptiness and readiness to swim in the sea of consciousness. In other words, to connect with our true reality in tangible ways. This was no ordinary workshop. It was gravity-defying, energetically speaking.

Mohanji, how can we ever thank you enough?

Personally, as I continue to process and contemplate, I’m finding myself in even greater levels of awareness in my moment-to-moment experiences, more acceptance of myself, in all my moods and shades, and mastery over situations that I find myself in. The witness and witnessing, the observer and the observed, are not mere concepts but are lush with personal experience.

It is freeing. It is liberating, coming from the stability and the power of the emerging self. Yes, the peace and freedom that flows with and from it are palpable. It’s grace from the Supreme Consciousness – The eternal fountain of the source itself.

O Mohanji! Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for your immeasurable love.

Thank you for lightening my load and lighting my inner pathways as you gently yet powerfully guide me closer and closer to the empowered Truth of mine. Thank you again, Mohanji, for all the amazing blessings you showered upon us in this first workshop of Empowered.

I’m looking forward to the next one – Empowered 2.0 from the 4th -12th Dec 2021 – moving forward on our inward path to connect with ourselves fully. I also extend my loving thanks to the awesome organising team and the incredible team of translators! To my fellow travellers on Empowered, it was lovely to be together with you.

We have a chance to taste the elixir of life in our eternal selves, come – let’s continue to move forward together in what Mohanji calls, ‘A Grand Collaboration.’

See you online on 4th December 2021. Stay Blessed. Namaste!

Protection during surgery

By NellyAnne Noronha, UK

I thought I have to share with you how Mohanji’s grace and blessings, as always, worked on the day of my son’s surgery. I woke up early in the morning on the day, sat and did my sadhana and literally surrendered all my fears and worries at his feet.

Moushumi had done a Mai-Tri session for my son and me prior to the procedure. She asked me if surgery was really needed as she felt that his shoulder socket looked perfectly fine during Mai-Tri. She also said that my late husband was with us and I should not feel afraid as the boys are well protected. I told her then that the consultant had seen the X-rays and said that his tendons around the shoulder socket looked damaged. However, to ensure that he was 100% certain of his diagnosis, he asked for an MRI scan to be done, which he would review again on the day. 

We got to the hospital at 7 am, and after all the initial admission procedures, we were told that the consultant would be coming shortly. He came at 8 am and told us that initially, he thought it was a Bankart tear. However, when he saw the MRI in the morning, he realised it was not a Bankart tear, although that was his diagnosis based on the X-rays. I immediately remembered Moushumi’s words after my son’s Mai-Tri session. 

The consultant then said that the only option was to carry out an arthroscopic diagnosis and repair the damage accordingly. I must admit I was taken aback; he saw my expression and said, “I am not forcing you; if you want to think and reschedule, happy to do that.” In the interim, he ran further clinical tests on my son and clearly felt the intense pain my son was going through. He said, “I am sure there is a tear that I can easily fix. However, I cannot say anything until I do the diagnostic arthroscopy.” 

My son just turned around and said to him, please go ahead and do what you feel is the best. He told me, “Mama, he is a leading consultant; we need to trust his instincts”; hats off to him for making the right decision. Although I now know that it was none other than Mohanji speaking to me through him. He was so firm that I just looked at the consultant helplessly, and he kindly said, “Trust me, I will do my absolute best for him, and if I can’t find any damage through the arthroscopic diagnosis, I shall not proceed with the procedure.” 

Since he was in the paediatric unit, I was allowed to accompany him to the OT till they gave him anaesthesia. I was beginning to get anxious, as I must admit it started bringing back memories when my husband breathed his last as boys and I were taken to a similar set-up. 

The anaesthetist was very friendly, and speaking to him, I found out that he was a fellow Goan; he also reassured me that everything would be fine. The Masters so meticulously selected every single person on the day. I call this grace. Next, what happened is beyond human comprehension. 

The anaesthetist gave me my son’s glasses, and as I opened my handbag to put them away, and surprisingly, Mohanji’s eye card appeared in my hand. I wasn’t even aware it had been there. I came up to the ward, sat with Mohanji eye card, closed my eyes and surrendered. Instantaneously, I started chanting the Mohanji Gayatri, and I chanted 9 malas. I usually remove the Rudraksha and Swastika mala after my sadhana, but strangely enough, I did not on that morning. 

Midway, as I continued my chanting, I started seeing a big cut with lots of blood oozing out, and as I continued the chanting, slowly, I noticed the blood beginning to disappear into a thin line followed by bright light. By then, I had almost become silent. I could feel the change in my breathing. Surely Mohanji made me experience that it was none other than him guiding the consultant. As I realised this, I started feeling absolutely calm and at ease. I am grateful I sat in the ward all alone for 3 hours, without any unwanted disruptions and could focus on my prayers. 

They had taken my son to the OT at 8.45 am. Exactly at 11.45 am, when I had just finished chanting the 9th round of the mala, a nurse came to me and said the procedure was successful. He was in recovery, and the consultant said he would speak to me later as he had other surgeries to perform. The nurse took me downstairs to the recovery unit; the first thing my son told me was that the consultant spoke to him and said he found the problem and had fixed it. What a relief!

Later in the evening, at around 7.45 pm, the consultant especially came to visit us. He said it was a HAGL, (humeral avulsion glenohumeral ligament) injury, as opposed to the Bankart injury. He said that it was a very unusual injury; however, he was absolutely happy with the result. He added there was also a slight tear in the supraspinatus tendon; if it were anyone over 50 years, he would not bother repairing the small tear. He thought it was worth getting it done as my son is young and would heal relatively quickly. 

He said it was important now my son rests for the next 6 weeks wearing a sling. So I took the liberty and told him that my son had booked his online UCAT exam on the 24th of August. He said that should be fine since he will be able to write or use the mouse; however, he needs to keep on the sling. I kept praying to Mohanji as I knew my son would not be willing to rearrange the UCAT test, especially after the consultant saying that it would be fine. However, Mohanji ensured that my prayers were answered; when we got home without me asking, he rearranged the exams to September as he realised he had that option. Moreover, he said to me, “It’s on a Saturday, and I will still be on holiday and be off from the sling.”

The consultant was obviously a very skilled and a good human being; he was very empathetic as he knew that my son had recently lost his father and admired his zeal despite all odds. Mohanji had also ensured that a friend from the Mohanji family spoke to me the night before, reiterating and reminding me of the infinite grace and blessings that the Masters have always showered on my boys and me. This conversation and the Mai-Tri session helped me to shed my worries about the upcoming surgery and focus on the care and support my son needed. I am so grateful and feel thankful for everything, dear Mohanji.

USA Celebrations

Guru Purnima – Offered in love to our beloved Mohanji

The USA family had organized a very grand Guru Purnima celebration this year starting on July 1.  A 21-day program daily evening variety program beginning on Thursday, July 1 ended on July 21st.  Each day’s program was unique and offered a special perspective/practice from the teachings of our beloved Guru Mohanji. Thursday, July 22nd was set aside as a day of service or seva. We culminated the celebration on July 23rd, the day of Guru Purnima itself, by honoring Brahmarishi Mohanji with an elaborate Guru Paduka Puja followed by various chants and bhajan/kirtan evening.

The 21-day program kicked off with an introduction where Mohanji Acharya Lata Ganesh and Andra Baylus, both from Virginia, spoke about the significance of a spiritual master or Guru in a person’s life and the concept of the Guru tattva (Guru principle).

On the second day, Sreyashi Chakraborty (Indiana) introduced Mohanji’s signature Power of Purity meditation, which always has a powerful impact on participants and where many feel the presence of the master.

The third day was a Saturday evening, well-timed for a relaxing ‘bhajan sandhya’ or evening of devotional music. The singers presenting bhajans of their choice were Sreyashi (Indiana), Geeta and Vandana (California), Jayashree (Iowa), Anu and Lata (Virginia) and young VishnuPriya (New Jersey).

On Sunday July 4, Mai-tri practitioner Tina Arya (Michigan) conducted a healing and restoring Online Mai-tri session.

On Monday July 5, Mohanji Acharya Bhavani (NY) gave a talk on the significance of the Supreme Feminine followed by playing of Mohanji’s recitation of the Devi Kavacham. This Sanskrit chant is said to create the effect of a shield of protection from negativity as a blessing from the Divine Mother, and participants spoke up after the program to share that they could feel powerful waves of energy while they listened to the chanting.

On July 6, Mohanji Acharya Vidya Iyengar (Florida) read sections from Mohanji’s book ‘The Power of Purity’, followed by a discussion.

The first week ended with a topic discussion on Surrender, conducted by Sreyashi (Indiana) and Sabyasachi (Maryland). There was lively participation from the audience who shared their life experiences on the subject.

The second week started with a talk and discussion on the Golden Datta Tradition by Sabyasachi and Mohanji Acharya Jaya, who also chanted the Siddha Mangala Stotra, a hymn attributed to the first guru of the Datta Tradition, Sripada Srivallabha.

The next day July 9 was fortuitously New Moon Day as well as Lord Shiva’s asterism or Arudra nakshatra. Mohanji Acharya Geeta Iyer, gave a short introduction to, and recited the Shri Rudram. This Sanskrit chant is renowned as the most powerful protective and healing hymn associated with Lord Shiva.

The next day was a Saturday, a good day to sit down to do the long 360 degrees meditation. This was introduced by Jyoti Lal (Texas). There was a feeling of deep peace and centeredness in participants after the meditation.

Sunday July 11 was an evening of kirtan or devotional singing led by Mohanji Acharya Natesh Ramsell (Sedona, Arizona), on his guitar. He is well-known in the US kirtan circles, having cut many CDs to his name.

The next day was a much-awaited day of experience-sharing by those in the US family, who had traveled to Mount Kailash with Mohanji. These were Mohanji Acharyas Bimal and Bhavani (New York), Vidya Rajagopalan (Connecticut) and Tina Arya (Michigan) who kept the audience rapt with their memories of that pilgrimage. This was followed by a playing of Mohanji’s chanting of the sacred Shiva Kavacham.

The next day July 13 was chosen as an evening to chant Lord Krishna’s famous mantra ‘Om Namo Bhagavatey Vasudevaaya’ where Sreyashi, Geeta, Vidya Rajagopalan and Sumathi took turns to chant the mantra.

On July 14, there was a discussion on the topic of Gratitude conducted by Tina Arya and Kalpana Mewara(Texas), with the audience being welcomed to share their own thoughts and experiences.

The next day, Thursday, was the perfect day to listen to the VIshnu Sahasranama, as chanted by Sangeeth Jayanthan (NY). A brief introduction about this much-revered hymn of the thousand names of Lord Vishnu was given by Geeta Iyer.

On Friday, July 16 Mohanji Acharya Pia Puatrakul of Maryland a HSTY yoga instructor, conducted a relaxing yoga session for the benefit of the program participants.

Saturday July 17 was a delightful evening of music ensemble. Benjamin Sands Jr. Abhik Nath and Pia Puatrakul (all from Maryland) sang and played on their musical instruments, on the theme of Mohanji’s core teaching – Unconditional Love.  They were ably supported by a mesmerizing performance on the harp and cello by Laina (Sedona).

Mohanji Acharya Laurie Amodeo (NY) offered a second online Mai-tri session on Sunday July 18.

On Monday July 19, Lori (Sedona) and others joined to speak on the subject “In Gratitude with Nature”, based on the Dattatreya Tradition.

The next day happened to be the holy day of Ekadashi, and especially suited to chant mantras on Lord Rama. Mohanji Acharya Geeta spoke on the significance of the sacred name of Rama, followed by the chanting of ‘Shri Rama Jai Rama Jai Jai Rama’ by Jaya, Vidya I, Geeta and Vandana.

July 21 was chosen as a day to have a topic discussion about Guru’s Grace. Jayashree and Manu (Virginia) shared their thoughts and were joined by several members of the audience who spoke with gratitude about their experiences.

All in all, it was a beautiful series, helping the participants to build up connection to Guru Mohanji as well as cleanse, energize and stabilize themselves in preparation for Guru Purnima on July 23rd, a day when blessings from the compassionate and benevolent Guru are said to pour down on those who have prepared themselves to receive.

Thursday, July 22 was dedicated to food seva, annadhan.  Teams from around the USA served food at various local centers.  Anu and Lata served cooked food and fruits at the Lamb Center Homeless Shelter in Fairfax, Virginia.  Texas teams headed by Lakshmi Nair and Jyoti Lal for cattle feed at the Texas, Gaushala, and The City House Homeless Shelter in Houston, respectively. The members also served prasadam at the local Shirdi Sai Baba temple. Shambo and Uma in Connecticut walked around the streets offering warm food to the hungry. Our children from Mohanji families, Aeshon (California), Cooper (Tennesse) continue to offer unconditional seva in their communities and are a great inspiration. Detailed reporting will be provided by ACT USA Team.

As you have seen Mohanji family spread around the United States came together in unison, harmony, love and purpose to acknowledge, celebrate, experience and share the extraordinarily magnificent Grace of Mohanji.  Friday, July 23rd was a beautiful culmination of offering Gratitude to Mohanji.  A day started with group Consciousness Kriya sessions at brahmamuhurta, bringing together several CK practitioners within the country. 

As the moon was illuminating the skies in the east coast, we started our Guru Purnima function with a very loving and devotional Guru Paduka Puja and the chanting of Mohanji Ashtotra Namavali by the group in Virginia.  Followed by the Guru Paduka Stotram offered at Mohanji’s lotus feet in New Jersey (Sangeeth) and the Siddha Mangala Stotram offered to our Golden Datta Tradition in Iowa (Jaya).  The sublimity of the auspicious occasion was heightened by sweet devotional singing once again bringing together our bhajan singers from California (Ashish and Runa) to Sedona (Natesh), Indiana (Sreyashi) New Jersey (Vishnupriya) and Virginia Lata, Ben and Anu).  Benjamin Sands offering of “Unconditional Love” was followed by Natesh’s “Guru Mohana Charanam Sharanam…”, a befitting conclusion to this auspicious day.

2021 Gurupurnima energized the entire country with a new wave of positivity and hope as we look forward for Mohanji’s exclusive USA satsang on August 14. Jai Mohanji.

Bliss of Silence meditation – part 1

These two beautiful testimonials of grace and blessings were experienced during the Bliss of Silence global 41-day programme. Suveetha shares with us her moments of true inner silence and Sankaranarayanan his mergence with the formless omnipresent divine energy. As shared in these stories, Mohanji’s love and blessings are ever present for all the participants who took part in this programme.

By Suveetha Ganesh, Australia

Jai Mohanji. I surrender everything I write of this experience at the feet of my Guru Mohanji. I am Suveetha, and I live in Melbourne. I attended a zoom meditation session on Bliss of Silence on 16th June 2021 conducted by Mohanji Acharyas Zoran and Sanjay. It was a beautiful experience. I was totally floored by the way Mohanji had orchestrated me being present in this session. Another participant also narrated her powerful experience with the meditation and the circumstances in which she joined the session when she hadn’t really planned on it initially. The most amazing part was that the circumstances that she described that she was in and the suppression of speech in certain situations also totally resonated with me. 

I just sat there in awe at the sheer grace of putting people in similar situations for meditation and helping them release the required baggage. I have noticed this in many other Mohanji programs varying from Mai-Tri sessions to meditations. The experience has been really powerful and almost magical, as I would like to call it. To me, Mohanji is a real-life superhero with magical powers, and my journey of spirituality with Mohanji has been nothing less than that out of a larger than life comic series. 

I started looking at my experiences with the same curiosity of reading a comic book, and in a very weird way, it helped me look at the whole thing from an open perspective. On deeper thought, I felt this was the best way suited to my generally easy-going personality. I love humour and enjoy a good laugh to deal with even the most gruesome events in life. It was very interesting that this aspect of me was also reflected in my meditation experiences many times. This also strengthened my faith in Mohanji and his compassion to reach out to people as his phrase goes, “Just be the way you are”. 

I have never experienced such genuine care and attention to detail or anything like this in my entire life. I am truly grateful to Mohanji and Guru Mandala for giving me these beautiful experiences and now for empowering me to write about them. Now, I will get back to the experience that I was writing to share. As the meditation began, especially with the visualisation and the sound of the waterfall in the background, I started feeling some intense vibrations in the upper part of my body. Along with this, at some point, I felt like the water from the waterfall was hitting me and my body and that I was the water reservoir under the waterfall. 

A voice in my head told me to calm down and breathe deeply and watch it again. Suddenly, I realised that I was in the water reservoir and I could feel the vibrations of the water falling, but I remained very much undisturbed, just like the water underneath. At that point, as if by magic, my body stopped vibrating and calmed down, and I could feel the detached observation of the water reservoir as it looks at this turbulent waterfall. The waterfall appears to disturb the stillness of the reservoir; however, the deep undisturbed aspect of the water is always still. It felt like a powerful revelation for me as I am going through a period of turmoil in my life regarding relationships, emotions and people, much like the hitting waterfall. 

However, as I connected deeper into me, I could see the still undisturbed part of me watching these events, much like the reservoir. This was what I understood from the experience as it related to my life. As I narrated this to Zoran, he explained that the vibrations are forms of release for letting go of complex and suppressed emotions or patterns. 

That explained a lot as I went through the meditation; I had various sensations in different parts of my body, especially around the heart chakra area. I was feeling anxious at the beginning of the meditation and felt it rise up and down in intensity throughout the duration of the session. I was surrendering my anxiety at his feet and requested him to help me resolve it, and then as if by magic, I felt the anxiety evaporating into the light, and I started feeling lighter. 

Towards the end, as Zoran played the ‘I am Light’ song, I was feeling so much joy that I had tears in my eyes, and it felt like I was having a dance party in that waterfall space with Mohanji and a Shiv Ling ( I know right! haha…). I was amazed at the intensity of joy experienced, and it deeply resonated with the experience of the other participant as she described it. And the overwhelming love and feeling of being held and protected like a little child was just an awesome feeling. 

At the end of the session, Alpa had narrated the presence of a bright background light that was visible on Zoran’s screen sometime in between the session. She had graciously decided to capture a photograph that was shown to the rest of the participants too. This had tears in my eyes at the sheer magnitude of his grace and all the blessings he showers on us unconditionally. I am enamoured by this love and care of a Parent that attends to a child’s need even when she doesn’t say it. 

This, for me, is a reaffirmation of his famous words “I am with you. Always,” in Harry Potter style! This experience and even writing about it has been nothing short of bliss. I express deep gratitude for this opportunity to share it with everyone. 

By Sankaranarayanan Meetna, India

Today (23.6.2021), during the 41 days’ BoS (Bliss of Silence) Meditation, I had an abundant grace from Mohanji, enjoying some very interesting experiences which I would like to share with you all.

Shapes came from shapelessness. Life happened from life-filled consciousness. Duration is the measuring tape of the mind. Mind-less state is a timeless state. All realities are projections of the mind and hence they change with time, space, attention and perception. It becomes truth when the mind is removed.

Mohanji on Truth as it is

As usual, before the start of the session, there was an open discussion and thereafter an explanation on Mohanji’s quote on, “Truth as it is”. I could not understand much about the various points discussed like time, space, measuring tape, shapelessness, mindlessness etc. Maybe due to my lack of proficiency/fluency in English, I preferred to keep quiet.

During the meditation, the way as guided by Mohanji, I imagined the face of my Master (Mohanji) in my heart centre and tried to connect with him. Slowly I could see Mohanji’s body growing and expanding, from the normal size to so big and spreading everywhere. I experienced a state of beautiful stillness at this point. Suddenly I felt my body had started moving forward at an abnormal speed and entered into Mohanji’s omnipresent shape and merged with him.  

My conscious mind was still partially active. Thus I could sense it sending a high alert signal. Without having a second thought, I tightly caught hold of Mohanji’s hand. My body kept moving forward, holding Mohanji’s hand. The movement was so quick, and then my body parts started to shred off like lightweight feathers. Finally, I saw myself completely shapeless and formless.

My formless self, while engulfed in Mohanji’s omnipresent shape, was still struggling to move forward. After a while, I could see Mohanji was nearing towards a divine bright light. I am sure and fully believe that it could be nothing but the SOURCE.

This experience gave me a chance to understand concepts like Time and Space were totally irrelevant for Mohanji in reaching out towards the Source as both these Divine Consciousness are one and the same and merged together and formed the Omnipresent and the Omnipotent.

Likewise, when the starting point and the destination happens to be the same, words like Time and Space proved to be meaningless altogether. The distance, if any, between these two is for Mohanji just a fingertip length away. 

Whereas, for me, due to a lack of knowledge and misconceptions of the mind it seemed to be millions of light years away. That’s why I was forced to struggle and cross over many obstacles as I tried to move faster even inside Mohanji’s energy field and holding his hand.

All shapes are the creations of the mind. In the mindful state, it creates different shapes of its choice like an artist delivering his beautiful creations in an empty canvas using different colours. However, in a mindless state, all shapes vanish and are invisible. Thus, in that state, the word ‘Shape’ is meaningless too.

Eventually, when the Consciousness and senses returned back to my body, the mind slowly took charge of the entire ‘stage show’ once again. It resumed its marvellous creations of different shapes once again by collecting and assembling all needed minuscule particles from all around.

Finally, my actual question still remains. What is Actual Truth? Mohanji will surely pull me out of this thick darkness forever. My ears are earnestly waiting for his loving voice “Tatasthu”.

Tranquilizers and detoxifiers

In these turbulent times, the best antidotes are the teachings and meditations of Mohanji, which has anchored many people. Here we have three beautiful people from the Mohanji family sharing their experiences about anchoring themselves.

By Charles Ndifon Londi, Canada

Anyone who knows Mohanji or has heard about him will be taken aback by the title of this article, but perhaps those who don’t know him will quickly seek him out for a new panacea for their ailments as they must not have had success with medications earlier taken. Yes, life is stressful with new challenging situations cropping up daily where people either have to face them, pretend the challenges don’t exist, flee, or impotently wish the challenges away. 

Some of the problems may stem from eating and drinking habits, in short, one’s lifestyle. Those who succumb to the challenges of life visit the doctor’s office for help and are given all types of drugs to stabilize their aberrant minds, possibly with side effects that may need other medication. I have personally experienced this and can tell you that being a life casualty is not a good thing. So what do tranquilizers do? They are drugs that reduce anxiety, fear, tension, agitation, and related states of mental disturbance. 

Mainstream pharmaceutical tranquilizers may fall into two main classes, major and minor. Some tranquilizers like benzodiazepines can cause mood swings, hallucinations, and depression. In the final analyses, it seems that one sets out to solve a problem and ends up with an even greater problem. However, this is not to denigrate pharmaceuticals, but only to honestly point out that there are some pernicious effects.

Let’s welcome a new class of tranquilizers and detoxifiers, the impalpable but potent elixirs dished out by Mohanji to all who would listen and whose intent is to be totally free on the physical, astral, causal, and mental levels. They have their etiology in a deep and focused understanding of life and its true purpose, created on the luxuriant playfields of supreme consciousness. I have personally used these remedies that are tasteless but sweet. 

These are the Mohanji quotes, podcasts, guided meditations, conference talks, retreats, Mai-Tri Method sessions, and general exhortations on many facets of life. It is said that the taste of the pudding is in the eating. I am voraciously eating whatever pudding Mohanji places on the table and hope you too can have a taste as I had in the experiences below. They led to the breakage of patterns, bindings, self-imposed restrictions, socially accepted ideas, outmoded thinking, etc. I am fighting hard that these patterns and restrictions don’t return as they are a subtle form of self-bewitchment.

I decided to try out the Mai-Tri Method with a beloved Mohanji Acharya, Preeti Duggal, barely months into Mohanji consciousness. What happened just as the session was about to begin (particulars of it confidential) wasn’t clear to me until the facilitator explained it to me. I thought I had suffered a sudden malaise but it was a divine dose of Mohanji tranquilizer and detox that came in. 

Then in another instance, actually a regular practice, I decided to prepare myself to face a recurrent situation that could lead to a confrontation with someone close. What other recourse had I then to dwell in the sacred place of the highest, in my heart center, where dwells my Master who brings along the great Masters to commune and bond with me. I was surprised by how understanding, detached and calm I was to face the situation. 

So I have decided to fly always to my heart center to be with Mohanji in The Bliss of Silence Meditation. While there the troubles that come sound like waves on a very distant shore. There I am tranquil, purged, and detoxified of all heavy emotions, cares, and worries. 

These all-natural remedies are for everyone who earnestly wants to heal not only the physical body but the four other inner bodies and be free and liberated to stand in the light, love, and bliss of the Supreme Consciousness. Would you like some Mohanji tranquilizers and detoxifiers?

By Raja Sekhar, India

I am from Hyderabad. I was lucky to be introduced to Mohanji’s path by Savithri ji. I feel blessed to be able to participate in the Power of Purity Meditation sessions through Neena didi and Aditya ji. I have participated in annadaan and distribution of cloths to the needy along with our team. Furthermore, I feel so blessed to have seen our beloved Mohanji in person and to have received his magic touch by attending the inauguration of Bhima Pushkaram with him. This happened through Krishnamurty Garu and Rajesh Kamath ji, and I am ever grateful for having had this wonderful opportunity to meet Mohanji.

Every day, Mohanji is blessing me to translate one of his English quotes to Telugu and post it in the Mohanji Telugu group. In this regard, I offer my sincere thanks to Soujanya ji for effective help and support in the group.

Whenever I go outside, either walking or in a vehicle, I keep on continuously chanting the Mohanji Gayatri mantra, which is evergreen and ever effective in clearing all my obstacles on the road and in my mind.

One of the major transformations in me after meeting our beloved Mohanji is quite contrary to my previous immediate and rash reactions to situations; I am becoming decreasingly less reactive to those situations. There is a considerable change in my reactions/responses.

My firm belief is that Mohanji is preparing me to be less burdened with Earthly attachments and is showing me a way to attain Janma Rahithyamu (birthlessness). I am grateful for the opportunity to communicate some of my feelings and experiences with my beloved Father – Parabrahma Mohanji!

I met Mohanji in Dubai in April 1999. I saw a noble heart and a Philanthropist in Mohanji. Mohanji used to deal with people with a cool mind and organize things on a large scale. Many people got jobs and placements through his contacts.

In August 2000, while on a journey in India, Mohanji lost his daughter Ammu. This was a turning point in Mohanji’s life. Mohanji’s visits to the Himalayas and the formation of the Ammucare Trust happened later. I was able to join Mohanji during blood donation camps and other activities in a small way.

I used to meet Mohanji almost every week while in Dubai or whenever possible during visits to Dubai. Once Mohanji was meditating in his room, I met Mohanji afterwards and received a book on Shirdi Baba, the Sai Satcharita. Mohanji told me to visit Shirdi, which I did in 2006 December, and I started experiencing some amazing miracles of Baba.

Whenever a crisis happened in my life, Mohanji was readily available for guidance, and I continue to receive this blessing. I remember the time when Bless the World meditations started. Mohanji’s Shaktipat was felt by me on several occasions in his presence and without his physical presence also.

Mohanji explains spiritual matters in such a simple and easy to understand manner. Mohanji’s healing powers are felt by people around me.

In 2012, Mohanji predicted the shift in consciousness and the changes happening in the world. He advised people to go vegan and also predicted the virus attacks! Under his guidance, I was always able to plan things better and ride through the complicated situations of life.

Thank you, Mohanji, for the wonderful experiences and your guidance as a Guru.

AWAKENING TO THE MYTH OF FREE WILL

By Stasa Misic, Serbia

Right at the beginning, I have to say that I have always had a wonderful life as far as material things are concerned, as well as the love of my beautiful family. I never really lacked anything, and I always had everything I needed and more. This only means that I had chosen perfect parents to whom I am grateful, for accepting me as their daughter. Since childhood, I have been tormented by questions on the meaning of life, that is to say, its meaninglessness. Does it really all come down to being born, studying, working, and dying? In one word: suffering! What’s it all for? I had a thousand and one questions to which my mother could not answer, so that in the end, she even bought me a book, ‘One Thousand Questions and Answers’, thinking that this will put her out of her misery. However, I found no answers to my questions in that book. I recall how even in preschool, I was pondering upon the question: “If I hadn’t been born and did not exist in this world, would I know that?”

My intensive search for answers began in the year 2000 when I fell into depression. That’s when for the first time, I experienced homeopathy, which without a doubt helped me the most. The cause of my sorrow was the course of my life which, upon finishing secondary school, was no longer going down the ‘normal’ path. Everyone around me was finishing their studies on time, getting a job, getting married, having children, while I was feeling completely stuck in the midst of it all. Absolutely nothing in my life went the way “it’s prescribed, and it should be”. Of course, that’s when I started reading many books on spirituality. One of the first ones was ‘Awakening’, which was bought once again by my lovely mother, who made the right choice this time.

After that came other books, TV programs, videos… followed by the workshops on psychological wellbeing and self-help. I tried all sorts of things and methods, which I practiced scrupulously, continuously, and for a long time to change my life in a material sense (and by that, I don’t mean just financially). But nothing was happening. While applying each of those methods, I’d always develop a big expectation. I wouldn’t have been doing them in the first place if I hadn’t been expecting some positive results, at least in some aspect of my life. But nothing was happening. Afterwards would always follow disappointment and sorrow. And then I’d lift myself up once again, giving it another try, which would always end up with the same negative outcome.

Then came May 2013, and my first meeting with Mohanji in a satsang in Novi Sad. I remember him answering the first question on free will, saying in his first sentence that free will is just a myth and that it exists only before we take this body. At that moment, I had a feeling as if I was relieved of an enormous burden, and I felt an incredible lightness! Since then, I started attending the meditations regularly, and the next year followed the first retreat as well.

Soon I discarded all the techniques I used to practice, which were only adding to my burden, and I simply started gradually accepting life circumstances. Thanks to Mohanji, I now realized that the only thing that I can change is the way in which I perceive my situations in life and nothing else! And even more important, I was paying less and less attention to what others think I should do with my life and whether they think my lifestyle is normal or not. Peace started settling within me. Of course, this peacefulness still gets disrupted, but the states of peace and bliss are becoming longer and longer. 

My life, as seen from the outside, was still the same! Nothing has changed! I still don’t have a ‘normal’ steady job, nor my family, husband, nor children. I have nothing that is considered ‘normal.’

However, deep inside, I have changed. I no longer have expectations, and for that reason, I also don’t have disappointments because of something that didn’t happen. I accept life situations more and more, and the urge for an impulsive reaction is less. I also started releasing myself from the guilt for not doing things differently. I stopped forcing myself to be something I’m not. And all those people who were making me feel guilty and who had plenty of ‘wise’ advice for me are gone from my life. I also started interfering less in other peoples’ lives with my advice, as I finally realized that everyone has their own path to follow and that it could be no other way, no matter how disastrous this path might look to us, the outsiders! 

Naturally, I am still far from that complete inner purity, and I still get upset, bothered and angry by others. But when it happens, I am aware of my anger, and I try to see the situation from a different perspective. For who am I to determine whether something is right or wrong and whether someone should behave differently?!

Apart from meditations, Conscious Walking, Kriya, and Yoga, I found incredible help in Mohanji’s blogs that I have been translating for a long time and my modest volunteering engagement for Mohanji Foundation. I am very grateful for this opportunity to do something that I immensely enjoy doing and which is at the same time beneficial to others as well.

Never in my life have I searched for a Guru, nor did I have any idea what is the purpose of having one. It all simply happened the way it did because it had been written so even before we came here, just like Mohanji said. I try as much as I can to go with the flow of life, resist less, and give my maximum in the given circumstances. And all those other desires that I used to have, I no longer long for. If they are meant to come true, at the right time, they will; and if not, it only means that they weren’t supposed to happen in the first place.

I’d like to express my infinite gratitude to Mohanji for finding me, as well as to all the people who led me to him and to all of those who helped me realize Mohanji’s immense spiritual power. Not everyone has the privilege to comprehend His immense spiritual stature and power. I don’t know if I would have, hadn’t I been surrounded by such wonderful people who helped me in it.

Finally, of course, I’d like to express my gratitude to my wonderful parents and the entire family who have been supporting me immensely in all this in every sense of the word.

Infinitely grateful!

Grace in selfless service

By Sunita Madan, India

He’s got the whole world in his hands.

He’s got the whole world in hands.

He’s got you and me brother in his hands.

He’s got you and me sister in his hands.

He’s got the little baby toddler in his hands.

He’s got the whole world in his hands.

(Song by Laurie London)

As human beings, our nature is love. Our role as individuals and collectively as human beings is to be compassionate, tolerant, peaceful, non-violent, creative and responsible.

I believe in the path of love, peace, harmony and bliss and the omnipresent higher power which connects all beings in the universe whenever required. I bow in deep reverence to this divine presence which creates this inexplicable connectedness. For me, this divine presence is my Guru Mohanji. I have been in sheer joy and wonder at Mohanji’s leelas which repeatedly shows his deep love for all even the strays on the road.

The last fortnight has been tumultuous where I observed my Guru Mohanji working through me. I was instrumental in a lot of events which occurred one at a time. It all began when we received an email from a lady called Sujatha – who requested financial help. Her case was truly sad.

As Ammucare volunteers, we reach out to many, and it’s all about selfless service to society. So taking it up as yet another seva, I decided to look into the matter the following day. The lady had sent some gory pictures and details about her accident. It was already very late at night, and I was apprehensive of the unknown, so I decided to procrastinate till the next morning. But it was not to be. As I was about to retire for the night, I felt strong energy goading me to make that call to the lady. It seemed to be very intense instructions from an unseen force that I was compelled to call her.

A tired voice was at the other end. The words just flowed as I gently and lovingly spoke to her. She held onto the phone and cried. It was a long call. She purged all her pains, her difficulties, her trauma. I could feel her intense suffering and pain. Here is a first-person account of what transpired the next day onwards in her own words as WhatsApp messages.

“I was touched by the way you spoke to me, and I felt like you were holding my hands and not letting me fall, no words to express my devotion to Baba and Mohanji. I felt it was the angel, who the Almighty had sent after talking to you. Last night I slept peacefully after a long time. I troubled you last evening. I could not share my pain with anyone like this; I feel very pained. People do not respect if we are not financially stable.

I lit the diya in front of Mohanji’s picture and listened to Shiva Kavacham rendered by our Guru Mohanji. The voice is mesmerizing. It made me forget everything for some time; thank you for being there for me. To be honest, the first time I spoke to you, I was sitting with a bottle of pesticide (please pardon me). Your call came at that moment. I wanted to quit. I got tired of this life and struggle. Not a soul to share anything with. I was blessed to have you as an elder sister, mother, friend and guide. Your words are very soothing. Can I call you Amma? I got a mother and Guru after a long wait of hardship. How do I thank you? How do I show my respects to my Guru Mohanji?

Today there was no salt, no oil, nothing at home. I was offering Mohanji just plain rice, and the doorbell rang. I saw two guys standing with many boxes saying they were in my name. I said they are not mine. (For the last three months, I have not had proper food, just porridge.) After seeing all the grocery that Ammucare sent, it took me some time to come to my senses.

Guru Mohanji saved my family and me. I do not know how to react or express my gratitude. All these miracles and blessings are nothing but divine intervention. I was wondering all these years if something good will ever happen to me in this lifetime. Is there any soul on this Earth who will ever care for me? Yes, I have you, my Guruji Mohanji and my Sai. My Guruji’s actions and kindness touched me. Because of him, I have got my prasad.

I will never forget these days if my life. Felt like the sky opened up for me. Wish I could touch Mohanji’s feet. Love you Amma. It was a feast at home today that I shared with Mohanji. I celebrated Onam, Vishu, Diwali, Dussehra, Ganesh Chaturthi, New Year and Sankranthi – all in one day. Post lunch, I slept as if there is no tomorrow.

I will always remember this day. There is nothing more beautiful than someone going out of their way to make others happy. In my case, it is my Mohanji who reached out to me. I feel blessed. This is the second lease of my life. I owe this to you and Mohanji. It was your call that saved my life that fateful day. In fact, I had lost all hope.” Isn’t it amazing how the Guru works through others? Every word I uttered was literally put in my mouth by none other than Mohanji.

Every day the counselling sessions were powerful. Mohanji led every step I took. How beautifully my sweet Father Mohanji eased the situation, brought solace, hope, peace and contentment. It’s been two weeks now, and Mohanji changed everything for this family. Wonderful donors appeared who helped Ammucare to reach out to Sujatha. Deep gratitude to one and all.

Sujatha has accepted Mohanji as her Guru and has surrendered completely to him. She feels his presence often. The Guru Principle, the Guru Tattva, the Guru element watches over us all the time once we surrender. Of course, we need to have unshakeable faith in the Guru Tattva; then there is no need for anything else. The grace of God takes the form of Guru.

Sujatha who nearly attempted suicide was saved in the nick of time by Guru’s grace. There was no food. The Guru provided it all. No money to pay the rent. The Guru blessed her with the required amount, or else they would have been homeless. She could sleep in peace as the Guru held her hand. The Guru truly has the whole world in his hands. He’s got everyone in his hands.

My deep gratitude to Mohanji for everything. My prayer is that – may each step of mine be a circumambulation of you. May all that I consume be offerings to you (prasad). May all my thoughts, words and actions be offered as flowers at your feet. Bless me so that my life is complete. Bless me so that at death, I merge with you.
