Truth – From darkness to light with Mohanji

Truth of Darkness to Light With Mohanji _Mohanji Quote

By Lisa Q, UK

“Happenings happen through time and space

Everything is happening through you.

We all happened.

This moment in time is happening.

There is a lot of happenings happening.

This is how the whole play works in the Universe.

We feel we are making decisions but what decisions can we make?

Because choices are very limited between Yes or No.” Mohanji 

This is our beloved Gurudev Mohanji’s teaching and this is exactly what happened on the 23rd of February 2019 on His birthday. I surrender my every word on what happened on His holy birthday at my Gurudev’s feet. With this intense experience, everything changed inside and a new beginning happened. Using ‘I’ or ‘my’ is just to explain all these details, but in reality there is no ‘I’ left anymore.

Truth of Darkness to Light With Mohanji _Lisa
In Your light Mohanji, there is no more existence of “I”

 Since Mohanji happened to me, almost every single moment, every single day is a miracle. A lot of shifting happened, severe blockages were removed through healing, unconditional love happened, acceptance happened, realisations happened, but also negativity happened, which I constantly kept ignoring within me. A huge amount of ego happened inside me with lots of expectations, but finally Mohanji’s unconditional love and light showed me the way so smoothly and gave me lessons from within. There is nothing higher than unconditional love and nobody could be more important than the Guru, because Guru is Parabrahma.

 Supreme Consciousness is truth and purity.  The more we are able to surrender completely to that Consciousness, the more we will be free from all darkness. And indeed without Guru, we will not be able to cross this huge ocean of life. With Guru’s blessings everything is possible, it doesn’t matter how impossible it may seem. Without His blessings nothing is possible, it doesn’t matter how small we think something is, at least, not for me. I bow down at your lotus feet Gurudev Mohanji, because without your support and unconditional acceptance, I would not have been able to realize that how many things may look very simple, but in reality they could be a huge trap of the mind.

 So, let’s start-up,

On Mohanji’s birthday I had planned to go to Subha didi’s place to join the UK team to celebrate His birthday. I had even planned which dress I was going to wear and which song I would be singing. But again, which decisions can we make? Divine plan was different for me and I was totally unaware what was going to happen, my inner transformation through the following experiences.  

A few days before the birthday, when one of my friends asked me to go to Skanda Vale with her, I happily agreed because Skanda Vale is always very special for me. We wanted to go on the 16th of February, but there was no accommodation available, so she booked us for the 23rd of February. When she called me about the change of dates, without a second thought, I said yes. Later on I realized that it was Mohanji’s birthday on that date and I had completely forgotten. It was too late to say no as the as the accommodation was booked. I was sad but I surrendered and said to Mohanji that may be this was predestined, but it’s ok. It was beyond my imagination that what kind of intense experience I will face within the next few hours.  

I need to mention here that I had been fighting with my inner darkness and felt completely helpless with that energy for a couple of weeks. I mentioned this to Mohanji and He said,

“Everything will be fine. Do not worry and I am with you.”

But when we are drowning in the dark energy field, most of the time mind/ego becomes so big that we cannot even recognise that. That is exactly what happened with me. I was restless but kept asking for help and stayed connected to Mohanji, as I knew when He said everything will be fine, it will be. Each word from Mohanji is so powerful and I had complete faith that it doesn’t matter how much darkness I feel inside me at this moment, my Gurudev will never fail me.

 On the 23rd of February,

We went to Skanda Vale, though I was very confused with many of fears and anxieties. What will happen if an accident occurs along the long drive, would it be very cold there, we have a small baby to carry with us (only 4 months), would this trip be successful etc. As these kinds of thoughts came across my mind, I wanted to call my friend to cancel the trip, but I surrendered my fears to Mohanji and prayed, waiting for His guidance. On the 22nd, I got confirmation telepathically that I should go ahead with the trip and it was a big relief for me. I asked my friend if we should buy a cake for Mohanji’s birthday so that we could offer it at the temple, but she said she will bake a blueberry cake and I agreed.

 We reached Skanda Vale so smoothly and safely, without a single hassle. When we reached there, first I said, “Thank you Mohanji for making this journey so smooth, but now we want to offer your birthday cake to Maha Shakti and Lord Dattatreya. Please help us.” We went to the Shakti temple for the evening puja and I mentioned to one of the monks there, “Today is Mohanji’s birthday, we have brought some cake and would like to offer it to Maha Shakti and Lord Dattatreya.” He was very happy and agreed to do so. It was fully packed with so many people that evening and when the Maha Abhishekam started, there was bhajans as usual. While singing, they took some cake and mixed with the other prasad and distributed to everyone. I felt so very happy and gave thanks to Mohanji and Maha Shakti for fulfilling my wish. Then a monk came to me and asked if I could cut the cake and give a big piece so that they could offer it to Lord Dattatreya. I felt so shy and requested him to cut the cake, but he insisted that I should. So I did and even blew out a birthday candle as if it was my birthday cake. I gave him a big piece of cake and it was offered to Lord Dattatreya.

My wishes were fulfilled and I was very excited about it, but somewhere inside my mind I was not completely happy. Afterwards, we returned back to our cottage and slept.

 On the 24th of February,

I had no plans for the day after Mohanji’s birthday, but I was not happy inside. We couldn’t attend the Shakti puja in the early morning, but went for the Ranganatha temple puja later on. I sat in front of Lord Vishnu and as the puja started, closed my eyes. Inside my heart, I was screaming with so many questions…. Why is my Gurudev physically away from me, why do I not have the qualities to stay with Him physically, why am I so helpless….. There were lots of “Why,” and I cried a lot. Then we went to the Dattatreya temple and I felt Mohanji’s physical presence there. Suddenly I was happy and shared with my friend that this was the place we were together with Mohanji when He did Lord Dattatreya’s Pranaprathishta and how magical that day was. It seemed impossible for me to join that auspicious day with Mohanji, but He made the impossible possible in an amazing way.

 After the Ranganatha puja we came back and waited for the Muruga puja to start. My head felt very heavy, as if I was drunk. At 1.30pm, the Muruga puja started and as we started chanting mantras, I started to feel very hot despite the cold weather. When the congregation started singing, I started singing very loudly and dancing. I started shaking, there was a burning sensation in my spine and I started sweating. Suddenly, as I looked at Muruga, I felt as if I was not there in my body, and felt Mahavatar Babaji’s presence. Although I didn’t see anything specific, I just felt his presence. Then I heard the voice of Guru Subramaniam saying, “Come to me and sit in front of me. Play Kaali Kavacham and Shiva Kavacham and meditate.” As I came back to my body, I felt disorientated and didn’t recognise where I was for a few moments. All of a sudden I felt something leave me and I felt very energetic, even my friend noticed and said that I looked full of energy. I asked her to come with me after lunch so that we could go to Guru Subramaniam’s Samadhi, as this was the first time he had called me.

 We had our lunch and I rushed to go to the Samadhi. We went there and I bowed down, offering my love and respect to him. Then I played the Kaali Kavacham and Shiva Kavacham and meditated.

After a few moments I realised that again I was outside of my body. As I opened my eyes, I saw that I was inside Guru Subramaniam’s Samadhi! I quickly touched my forehead on his feet and saw a bright light in the middle of his heart. I wasn’t sure what to do next, but gradually settled down and said, “Guru, you know everything about me and how powerless I am. I cannot stay with my Gurudev Mohanji nor am I able to serve Him properly. Why am I so powerless?” He started to speak very sternly, but with pure love and said, “You are not powerless, you have the highest power inside you.” I was so amazed to hear this. Then he said, “Why do you think I called you here? I only called you here because of that power which is burning inside your heart and that power is your LOVE for God and your PASSION for God. From now on never say again that you are powerless. With that power you can shake anything, even God too.” He blessed me and said, “Light a lamp on the top of my Samadhi,” and at that moment I returned back to my body. I lit two candles as instructed, chanted the Mohanji Gayatri mantra and made 9 circumambulations around Guru’s Samadhi. I sprinkled my hands, face, hair, chest and navel with the water from Guru’s Samadhi and drank some water from the Shivalingam there.

 By this time it was almost 6pm, so we went to the Shakti temple for the evening puja straight from there. I sat down in the temple and started chanting the Kaali mantra. When I closed my eyes it was as if there was nothing left in this world. The puja started, we did chanting and singing. I was looking at Ma and kept calling her within me, “Ma… Ma… Ma.” After a few moments, an amazing vision formed in front of me. It was really strange, and I have never had this kind of experience ever before. I saw my body slowly starting to expand; it became so very big that when I looked down I saw all the monks and other people looking like little puppets. It felt strange to observe them, as if it was a puppet show and I was watching the small puppets performing a holy play. Then I saw another vision, they were offering me a crown, lots of gold and new clothes. Very beautifully, they were decorating me as a new bride. Then all of a sudden, I was in my body again and when I looked at Ma, she asked me, “Where is the separation?” I said, “Ma, there is no separation between you and me. You are inside my heart and I am inside you. No separation at all Ma.” I felt so joyful and after the puja finished, we came back to our accommodation.

 That same night, Mohanji came in my dream. Actually, this was not a dream; it was another dimension of life. Initially I saw a small monster which slowly became bigger and bigger and finally so huge and it was trying to capture me, but certain divine forces came and destroyed it. After it was killed, I took a shower. After a few moments, I suddenly saw Mohanji sitting at a very special place and asking someone, “Where is Lisa?” I was nearly there and said, “Gurudev, I am here.” He looked at me and smiled. Then I went near and sat down beside Him and Mohanji said, “Tell me, what do you want from me?” I touched His feet and said nothing, and we sat there together for a little while. When I woke up, that feeling was still within me. It was more real than His physical presence. And I felt that everything had changed within me. A huge shift had happened to me with all these confirmations that there is no separation. We are all One Consciousness and that is the TRUTH. Until now, this truth was a theory to me but now I am able to realise what actually Mohanji says about Alignment. All these experiences were so intense and real that nothing can shake my trust in Mohanji anymore.

 The next day was the last day at Skanda Vale and Ma said, “Before you leave, come to me.”  We went and on the way to the Shakti temple, when we were standing in front of Guru’s Samadhi, the candle I had lit was still burning and my happiness had no limits. The burning candle was a symbol of my love for my Gurudev Mohanji!

 We returned to London with the bliss of silence and only I knew how big this experience was for my small logical mind. This whole experience was beyond any imagination, without any expectations and when I shared all this with Gurudev Mohanji, He told me that all these experiences were TRUE and that I must write them down in detail and chew it at leisure as a cow does and digest it with time.

Some experiences should be digested with time.

And I think I will need a long time to digest these huge amount of experiences.

I bow down at your lotus feet Gurudev Mohanji and the entire Guru Mandala for bringing me from Darkness to Light and giving me the realisation about ONENESS.

 Jai Mohanji!

 

“The mission of every guide on Earth is to lead a generation and beyond to the light of truth. Truth is very simple – YOU ARE THAT. You are the imperishable, immovable, colourless, formless, self-illuminating, brilliant entity that exists beyond time and space.” — Mohanji

Faith, conviction and volunteering for the mission!

By Arun Vathavooran, UK

Mohanji says, When you move through the path of spirituality, you may face many obstacles. However, those will all dissolve if your focus stays steadfast on God. If you establish your focus on that highest Divinity, and are determined and resolved to continue till you merge with it, nothing will be able to stop or stand in your way. God or the Guru will automatically guide and hold your hand through that path of evolution.”

 Arun has experienced the above, sharing with us a beautiful experience of how Mohanji’s grace and love helped him miraculously at a time of need. He also explains how volunteering has helped his progress in spirituality, deepening his faith, love and connection to Mohanji. Enjoy reading the love of a volunteer for his Guru and the mission.

I grew up as a vegetarian but became a vegan shortly before my Kailash yatra with Mohanji in 2016. It was a fairly straight forward process for me to become a vegan by giving up dairy. However, I find it really challenging to obtain vegan food while travelling. In particular, I find it very hard whenever I travel to far off places like Siberia on business assignments. I am slightly flexible only while travelling and consume dairy products as a regrettable exception. My travel agent has listed my food preference as ‘Asian vegetarian’ in the file for a long time. I tried to update that to ‘vegan’ in 2016, but she advised me that it would be difficult to get vegan options on the routes that I frequently travel. So, I decided to leave it as it was. My business trips normally last 1 to 2 weeks and is always booked in advance so that the special meal is requested on time.

Last summer (2018 June) there was an unplanned request at work, asking me to attend a meeting in Freiberg, Germany at short notice. The request came on a Wednesday and I had to travel the next day to make it to the meeting on Friday. My flight tickets from London to Dresden via Frankfurt were booked at the last minute and the travel agent said it was too late to request a special meal. I wasn’t bothered much because it is a short flight from London. The itinerary was planned in such a way that I would fly out on Thursday to reach Dresden at dusk, and the host would pick me up from the airport to drive to Freiberg which is about an hour’s trip. The meeting was scheduled for that Friday morning; it was also planned that they would drop me back at the airport in the afternoon to catch an evening flight.

Everything went well until I reached Frankfurt, where I missed my connecting flight to Dresden during the afternoon rush hour at Frankfurt security. They rescheduled me on the next flight, but that meant I would only reach Dresden shortly before midnight. Therefore we agreed that I should stay at a hotel near the airport overnight and they would pick me up in the morning at 7.30 am. I checked in late, but got up early in the morning, did my Kriya and was ready to leave by 7:30 am. I couldn’t get any vegan options from the breakfast menu, so I had a light vegetarian breakfast (that contained dairy products).

Unfortunately, there was a road accident (which I was not aware of) and my host was stuck on the highway which was closed. They managed to reach my hotel only after 10 am to pick me up. We were on the way, but had to take diversions as a result of road closures and reached our meeting venue in Freiberg by noon. We all realised that we were running out of time as my return flight was at 6 pm and the road closures were still in place. Everyone agreed that we should go on with the meeting without breaking for lunch, and then I could catch a train by 4 pm from the nearby train station to avoid getting caught in the traffic again.

The meeting went well and I managed to get a train as planned, but I was really tired as I didn’t have any food since my light breakfast around 7 am. I didn’t try to buy any food on the train or at the train station simply because of my language difficulties (I don’t know a single word of German). However, I was hopeful that I would get some vegan / vegetarian food at the airport.  I reached the airport on time, but couldn’t find any vegetarian options there other than wraps containing shredded raw carrots and lettuce. I wasn’t prepared to eat raw food after almost fasting the whole day, but managed to get a slice of bread and banana from the business lounge (that was the only option other than peanuts and biscuits) and hoped that I would get some food once I reached Frankfurt.

Once in Frankfurt, I wanted to rush through the security to avoid the same mishap that happened on the previous day. While rushing through, I checked my emails on the phone and found out that there was an urgent request from the Mohanji Publications Team to translate the 360 degrees meditation in Tamil along with the other meditations. It was mentioned that someone was available in Mumbai to record and a quick turnaround of the translation would be very useful.

I had forgotten my hunger and tiredness after reading through the email but wanted to speak with my friend and fellow volunteer Jay about how we could split the work and get this done quickly. I rang him when I reached my boarding gate and we had a detailed discussion about the translation and various other activities including arrangements for an ACT seva (snack stall in Skanda Vale). At the end of the call, I realised that I didn’t have much time to look for a meal, but needed to board the plane soon. I managed to find a nearby café that served vegan falafel sandwiches and tea, and satisfied myself with that.

I boarded the plane quickly and was seated on time. To my amazement, once we were airborne, one of the cabin crew members came up to me, checked my name and said “Sir, we have received a special meal request for vegan food for you.”  I couldn’t believe it for a moment because no special meal request was made in the first place for this trip! Further, even if it was, it should have been vegetarian and not vegan. While my monkey mind was analysing this, they served me with a scrumptious meal that consisted of rice, dhal, potatoes and another vegetable curry along with a mini naan bread, followed by fresh fruit salad. I would say it as a feast, considering my situation (fasting all day) and the location (plane food).

It didn’t take too long for me to realise that this was a divine play of our beloved Guru Mohanji. It was indeed another confirmation that our Guru looks after us and fulfills every single need, even without being asked. I have read about food unexpectedly being served to Guruji Avadhootha Nadananada while he was travelling on a train and was really hungry. I have also read a similar account in ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ where Paramahansa Yogananda had been given food in a miraculous way while travelling. However, actually experiencing such an amazing miracle was a wonderful reconfirmation of the connection I have and deeply feel with Mohanji. My heartfelt gratitude and love for my beloved Guru for taking care of me always.

I would like to share here another experience that showed me when we serve with love, faith and conviction, Guru’s grace and blessings are always with us.

As mentioned earlier, we soon started translating the Tamil script of the 360 degrees meditation, and I promised the Publication Team that it would be ready within a week. However, it was a busy week at work and I was under pressure to get two reports completed in the same week. Report writing is certainly not one of my strengths; normally I take relatively more time to complete reports. Further, in the line of my business, reports are an iterative process as well. Normally draft reports are updated following peer review, project manager review and client review. Most of the time, it is a tedious time consuming process.

I surrendered all to Mohanji (both my work reports as well as the translation) and started working on my reports. It turned out that I was able to finish both the reports on time and also managed to complete the translation at the same time (much of the translation was done at work during unexpected free time after reports). Surprisingly, there were no comments from any of the reviewers!

The translation of 360 degrees meditation was another remarkable experience on its own. I was able to feel energy movements within my spine and sahasrara region (similar to meditation) while working on the translation at my computer, even with my eyes wide open. At one point during the translation, I felt that I should close my eyes for a moment to enjoy this energy (the energy was so intense at that time). Once my eyes were closed, I could clearly see Mohanji standing next to me at my office desk! I have seen Mohanji in meditations and dreams several times, but this was indeed a magical experience, to see Him watching over me at work. I realise how blessed I am, to be in the protective embrace of my loving Guru Mohanji and to be given such wonderful opportunities to volunteer for Mohanji’s mission. I surrender all at Mohanj’s divine feet.

The Unseen Ring of Protection

by Arpana Nazre, Bangalore, India

Image result for Mohanji quotes on i am with you

As given in the quote above, Arpana Nazre had an unnerving experience that taught her to face life with courage and faith in the Guru. Our Guru Mohanji gently held her hand and protected her through this difficult experience, giving her the strength to deal with it. Read on about this alarming experience which shows us how Mohanji protected Arpana through this ordeal, showing us yet again, He is always with us!

This incident happened recently, when we shifted to a temporary location, since we were renovating our current home. We had moved to a house which unfortunately didn’t have a proper car parking space, hence we had to park my car on the street. Considering this was a main road leading to a residential colony, there was a lot of moving traffic. I had chosen a space diagonally opposite to my house, in front of an empty plot.  Within a few days, construction of a residential building started, and we saw a lot of building materials being shifted to the plot in front of which I had parked my car. So essentially my car was blocking their work. The workers repeatedly instructed us to move my car elsewhere.  We were unable to find a suitable place immediately. They expressed discontent over my car being parked in the same place.

That day as usual, I started for my office. Usually, I approach the car from the back, since my house is way behind from where my car was parked. I got into the car and started the engine like every day. As I steered the wheel and got moving, I could feel the wheels hitting something hard, and there was a loud sound. I immediately put on the brakes. By then, a labourer who was working close by, rushed towards my car window and started yelling at me – “Can’t you see that there is a machine here? You have broken my machine…” and so on.  I was stunned and wondered, ‘what machine?’  When I got into the car, there was no view of any machine. Apparently they had kept an iron rod cutting machine within a foot of the car, which was totally not visible from the driver’s seat. Now whether they had done it on purpose or not, I had no clue. As it was not visible, there was no way I could have seen it. After sharing my point of view,  I left for my office.

When I reached the office, I got a call from my mother, saying that the labourers had been creating a very big issue out of it, and had demanded money for the repair of the machine. I suggested we pay some money for the damages. A short while later, the labourers had started using the same machine, which they claimed had been damaged. Noticing this, my mother went up to them to check if the machine was working. They mentioned that they got it repaired. It was surprising that a big machine, which was damaged and needed repairs, was working within a few minutes after the hit. In my estimation, it should have taken them at least half a day in a city like Bangalore, for the technician to arrive and do the repairs. We smelt something foul here, but kept silent as we didn’t want further issues.

Later in the day, when I reached home, my mother asked me to park the car on the adjacent street,  to avoid arguments with the workers. I did as I was told and we forgot about the matter.

Next day, we had to leave for some work. My mother asked me to get the car from the adjacent street, while she locked the doors of the house. I went to get my car. While reversing the car, in the rear view mirror, I saw the same guy who had fought with me the previous day, standing there with his bike. The street was completely isolated, with no one there.

When I reversed the car, I saw that there were three more of his accomplices, and they surrounded my car. The main guy parked his bike blocking my exit from the street. I immediately knew this was turning ugly. At that moment, I just uttered Mohanji’s name. Before I could think of any action, these guys were near my car window, shouting and threatening me. Still in the driving seat, I called my brother-in-law who stays nearby, and asked him to get the police.  The main guy who created the whole ruckus, started shouting threateningly, that I could call the police and he was not bothered.

The situation was getting out of hand, so I got out of the car and confronted them head-on. Strangely, I was facing all four men alone, with no kind of fear or anxiety. I then started reasoning with him, explaining in a calm manner the way the situation unfolded. He still wouldn’t listen and was yelling at the top of his voice.

Suddenly, an old man (around 70 years) appeared out of nowhere and intervened, consoling the main guy who was creating a big scene in the street. Amidst this commotion, I remember seeing the old man keeping his hand on the labourer’s chest, asking him to calm down. Within a few minutes, this angry man turned around and abruptly left the street along with his accomplices. By the time my mother and brother-in-law reached the place, the entire episode had died down.

As this guy left, there was this strange kind of feeling within me, and I knew deep down that this man will not bother me again. Everything was over within a few minutes and the matter was resolved. I also noticed that I was strangely calm and composed even after this entire altercation. My mother and brother-in-law were thinking of filing a complaint at the nearby police station, but I knew that it was not needed and they would not bother us anymore.

My mom was extremely worried, since these guys work right opposite our house, and they can do anything at any point in time, considering she would be alone. They could even find ways of extracting money from us.

To our utter surprise, the man changed completely and wouldn’t even look at us. The same person who looked exceedingly agitated just a few hours ago, was quite calm, as if nothing had happened. It was extremely surprising to note that each day as we passed him, even if there was eye-contact, he showed no signs of enmity or anger towards us.

A few days later, I met Mohanji and shared with Him the entire incident. He listened and said nothing but one line – “Always remember – I am always with you, no matter what.” Even at that moment, my sleepy brain didn’t register something vital. Only while driving back home, I realized that the person who had come and calmed both the parties was none other than Him. How could I miss such a detail? It was no wonder that this person had suddenly calmed down, from his extremely agitated state to not bothering to look at us. To this day, that person is still working, but has not troubled us after the incident. This is nothing short of a miracle. Mohanji, in His most unassuming way, showed that He is with me, but never took credit for resolving the situation. Isn’t this a sign of a most elevated Master, who does His work, but doesn’t acknowledge or take credit for it?

There are no words to describe the stature of such an elevated Master. All I know is I am extremely blessed to be under His umbrella, for which I know not of any merits in this lifetime. A Sathguru is always protecting His disciples, through rain or shine. It is for us to see His grace, protection and blessing in every situation of life. Or we might miss the whole point. How can I express my gratitude, for such grace and protection? All I can do is share His leelas, so more come under this protective umbrella of our Guru, Mohanji.

Koti koti pranams at the holy feet of our Master – Jai Mohanji.

“Being Mohanji”, the Flower with 108 Petals

few more

In May 2018, Testimonials team started a special drive of collecting devotees’ thoughts and expressions of how they conceive themselves as “Being Mohanji”. As everyone knows Mohanji has various facets, expressions and subtlety and everyone perceives Him differently.

This drive was not about what devotees think of Mohanji, rather what they think of themselves, if they were Mohanji. In a way, this would show which facet of Mohanji they connect to and which is the characteristic that they reflect on.

We thought of running this drive of publishing devotees’ expressions one a day every day for a month. However, this became so popular that devotees from various locations started sending their expressions. Today, at the end of August, we have reached exactly 108th expression.

We felt we would offer this flower with 108 petals at the lotus feet of Mohanji – a tiny offering to show what devotees are reflecting inspired by Him and being merged in His consciousness.

Grace All The Way To the Pyramids

By Sunita Madan, India
Bosnia_1
The Bosnian Pyramid pilgrimage and Kriya Intensive were the first of my long retreats. The Bosnian Pyramids have always been a mystery to me, I always wanted to be there and experience them first hand rather than reading others’ experiences. But more than the pyramids, the thought of being with Mohanji for nearly 10 days was like a dream. There were many issues and obstacles before I finally boarded the aircraft towards Istanbul and finally Sarajevo. I was finally there. I shared a room on the 5th floor of the hotel and I got to know that Mohanji was on the 6th floor. The thought itself kindled all kinds of emotions! The following day was to be the satsang and there I saw my Father, my Mohanji full of unconditional love as he shared a word or a hug with one and all. When it was my turn I waited for the hug which was a dream come true. It made me feel so loved and complete.

The next day was our own pilgrimage to the Sun Pyramid. Now came all the challenges. It was to be a long walk uphill and then a steep climb. I wondered if I had been wise to agree to climb up. Fortunately, I reached a certain point by car but then the next stage was the steep climb. Mohanji had led the way and one by one, slowly but surely everyone was reaching up. I started the climb one step at a time chanting the Mohanji Gayatri in my mind.
Bosnia_Sunita_3.jpg
Dear George guided me beautifully, encouraging me at every step. I slowly and steadily moved up having to stop after every three steps to take a deep breath. My main thought at the time was “Will I ever make it?”. As this thought came to me, I looked up and saw my Guru, my Master looking down at me. My fear was reduced and I immediately knew that he was taking care of me. It was his grace that I was in Bosnia and it was his grace that I could move and go up the steep path up the Bosnian Pyramids. Due ot a slipped disc issue, I normally have to be very careful with my knees, my legs and my back. And here I was, climbing a pyramid metres and metres high. This was indeed a miracle.
Bosnia_Sunita_7.jpg
When I reached Mohanji later, I thanked him and he said “You are doing well”. Anything and everything can happen with Masters grace and in my case, grace flowed all the way. I was encouraged to climb further up where we gathered to meditate. The grace continued to flow as we went up the Moon Pyramid as well. The vehicle in which we travelled to the Moon Pyramid had a step which was high. It was very difficult for me to climb up and to get down. Mohanji held my hand as I was wondering how to get down and then He said “Jump”. It was a direct command from the Guru. Without a thought about my knees, my legs and my back I simply jumped and lo and behold, I landed on my feet safely and all my aches and pains vanished!
Bosnia_Sunita_5.jpg
Today when I look back, I am in awe that I managed to do all of this with Mohanji’s grace and blessings. I feel a deep gratitude and deep love for my Guru who held my hand and blessed me with words “I am always there with you”.
With such physical pain and inability, travel all the way to Bosnia followed by the climb to the Pyramids and connect to the energies and meditate there was not just my cup of tea. A life times karma have been washed away in this pilgrimage and this was made possible only because of Mohanji. Without much adieu to whatever He does, He does silently, effortlessly and very smoothly, He is clearing away lifetimes of karma. The transformation in our lives after such pilgrimage with him and such deep cleanse is phenomenal

To my Guru of such a stature that the only thing I can give is my humble prostrations at his Holy Feet. Jai Jai Jai Gurudeva.

Revealing Truth about Mohanji

Mohanji_Kailash

My name is Swami Brahmananda, formerly a member of the Skandavale Ashram in Wales UK, now continuing my sadhana as an individual traveling in India.

I first met Mohanji when he visited Skandavale in 2014. My own Guru having left his body in 2007, I was not looking for a replacement and as such connected with Mohanji as a familiar old friend. It was soon clear however that Mohanji truly embodies the Guru principle and seamlessly supported the sankalpa of all true Gurus in his unassuming, authentic and informal way.

Mohanji and the Guru Mandala

In inviting me to participate in the Inner Kora yatra of Mt Kailash in 2016, Mohanji fulfilled the will of my own Guru, making himself almost invisible he acted as tour guide, translator and companion, where necessary imparting the right spiritual knowledge to guide me in my own inner journey.

Mount Kailash represents a daunting physical and logistical challenge, the Inner Kora even more so. It was truly humbling to witness how Mohanji supported every member of our group, directly taking their burdens upon himself when he could see their own resources were failing.

Mohanji_Kailash_carrying_ahead.jpg
“I have only the weight of my soul to carry”

Asking him later how he was able to carry all these people Mohanji smiled and explained “I have only the weight of my soul to carry” In an instant, I understood who he was.

During the second day of the Yatra, we walked to the edge of the glacier at Charan Sparsh which extends from the north face of the mountain. The Tibetan Sherpas normally don’t allow anyone to walk on the glacier itself because of the danger (that year more than 30 people had died around Kailash) but when Mohanji started climbing up the ice himself it became clear a divine precedent had been set and a group of 12 were able to cross the expanse of ice to prostrate and embrace physically the north face of this most sacred of mountains. For me personally, this was surely the single most powerful transforming event of my life made possible through Mohanji’s grace.

Embracing Kailash

Mohanji explained at the time this event represented the beginning of a dimensional shift in consciousness and we should be ready for dramatic changes in our life circumstances.

I didn’t fully understand his words until in September 2017 I was thrown out of the ashram which had been my home for 26 years amidst some extreme differences of opinion about spiritual life. Leaving the material security of the ashram at age 51 with a few clothes and enough money for a tank of petrol, my mind resonating with the turmoil of many harsh and critical voices surrounding my departure, my first instinct was to contact Mohanji. As is his habit, he responded personally within minutes and we arranged a meeting. At a time when my own self-belief had received a battering, Mohanji believed in me and for that, I will always be grateful.

Unconditional Loving Support

We met during Mohanji’s program in Switzerland and immediately his words went beyond opinions and superficial emotion to confirm in my mind that actually nothing bad had taken place and no one had done anything wrong. Rather evolution was taking place, I began to understand what the dimensional shift really meant, and my future as traveling renunciate came into focus, all leading to greater awareness and fulfilment in the years to come. From that discussion with Mohanji, I began to turn my mind away from the trauma of my departure from Skandavale and embrace the expansive vista of service on the stage of the world. Both in spiritual counsel and practical support through the extensive network of Mohanji’s organisation in India, I could embark on the next chapter of my own journey with renewed confidence knowing that unconditional loving support without judgement was at hand.

Spiritual & Divine Communion

The day following our completion of the Inner Kora of Kailash Mohanji was in a deep state of spiritual communion with the divine powers dwelling in and around the mountain. He relayed to us in real time his communication, giving personal insights and reassurance about our lives and that the opportunity we had to go to the north face was indeed an unprecedented grace that would change our lives completely. That night, I had an intense dream experience where I found myself with Mohanji in a run down suburban street, somewhere in India I guessed, it was raining, litter and detritus was everywhere and the gutters overflowed with stinking effluent. I watched as Mohanji proceeded to prostrate face down in the road such that the foul water flowed over his head, protesting I called to him to stop, but he replied, “I must do this, it is my job”.

Mohanji_with_SwamiB.jpg
Greatness That Dwells Behind The Human Persona

Reflecting on this experience, l realised that I had been shown what Mohanji’s task in this incarnation is, to sanctify a polluted humanity and restore the sacred traditions of dharma. I was privileged and humbled to see the greatness of the soul which dwells behind the easygoing human persona.

Travel In The Path Of Liberation

Mohanji’s presence in the world continues to be a great source of reassurance, inspiration, and courage to travel the path of liberation to its end.

Mohanji, the Brother in Truth: “Sabse Unchi Prem Sagai”

Author: Sujata Joshi, UK

 

Mohanji, The Brother in truth 1 Mohanji quote - fire of awareness

I was at Subhasree’s, after a troublesome period of experiencing energetic disturbances in my sleep. It did happen during the day as well. Eventually I chose to receive Mai Tri healing as a last resort to help settle things. Subhasree explained to me that it was important to be open to receive, whichever way Mohanji chooses to work through you.

I prayed to Mohanji, “Let me know whatever you want me to know.”

You see, I was experiencing separation from my guru, who guides me from beyond. This caused me to feel abandoned and unwanted. I prayed to Him before I came to London, “Please, I need confirmation. I need to know You are with me and that I am loved.”

My intuitive guidance was blurred at this point and I had doubts about my own guru, who recently broke His own image and caused many people to be upset. I know gurus do that! They have harder tests than us! They have to break every bond in order to move to higher realms of spiritual heights!

I knew my guru was a high being, but I had no physical contact with Him, only strong intuitive guidance, which connected me to His consciousness like an umbilical cord connects a baby in the womb to the mother.

Mohanji, The Brother in truth 2 fire of awareness

My guru is very strongly linked to Mohanji.

Mohanji’s presence during the healing was palpable. He actually was there! Very gentle. Very soothing! As healing energies began to flow, my tears started to roll!

My guru was there! He was always there! He never left! His funny, witty, loving, flirtatious, even naughty, presence was unmistakable!

I had no doubt, He was with me, I was still loved and protected, despite my various outbursts and doubts about Him, He loved me beyond judgements and conditions my mind had set about His image! I remembered Mohanji’s messages. “A master is never bound by our mental frames. Trust Him! Because the mental frames will keep on breaking!” I bowed to both my gurus and asked for blessings.

Rights and wrongs are man-made! They change.

God isn’t bound by man-made laws of the society.

My Guru showed me the image of Lord Krishna with the chariot wheel, charging at Bhishma, despite His vows of non-involvement in the battle. He broke His own image to protect His disciple, Arjuna!

 

Such is Guru’s love for us. In truth, we are all Arjuna. We just doubt ourselves and forget we are loved!

I am so blessed to receive this communion through Mai Tri healing.

I am writing this account for those of us who might have felt disconnected or abandoned by the guru at times. It is not easy to cope with that! Though the real guru is our own soul, we need the external guru to connect us within.

Mohanji has always been there to rescue me. Even before I knew about Him!

Mohanji, The Brother in truth 5 fire of awareness - Manasarovar lake - devotion

I received clarity later, much later, as my healing actually continued for days after. I was still in bliss, sleeping soundly, eating well and generally getting deeper and deeper in solitude of the loving embrace of my spiritual mother, my guru. Days later I recognised.

In my mind’s eye, was the question, why do I call Him (Mohanji) my brother?

Mohanji had rescued me from being an exotic dancer, hundreds of incarnations back. He had called me his sister since then!

Beloved brother, in deep love and gratitude.
