Kailash not too far!

Kailash pilgrimage 2019. Mohanji and a group of nearly 100 yatris were at Lake Manasarovar. Thousands of miles away in a small part of South Wales, UK, in the Skanda Vale ashram, NellyAnne, Subhasree and Moushumi were doing Consciousness Kriya in the presence of the Lord Dattatreya idol. Their deep connection to Mohanji and their practice of Kriya with conviction and consistency had blessed them with incredible visions and experiences!

Incredible is the grace of Guru Mandala that through these visions of Mohanji in Kailash, it was proven yet again that when Mohanji travels on a pilgrimage, He just doesn’t take people physically, He takes everyone connected to His consciousness spiritually too!

Read on to feel the power of this grace!

By NellyAnne Noronha

I had registered my application for the Kailash trip 2019 with Mohanji. However, due to unavoidable reasons, I couldn’t make it. I accepted this as divine will and decided to go with the flow. I was reassured by Preeti Duggal ji, a core member of Mohanji family, that with Mohanji’s grace and blessings I will be able to experience the entire pilgrimage despite not being there in person. This assurance reminded me of Mohanji’s words during the satsang in Pinner in 2018 (my first meeting with Mohanji physically),

“Everyone present here is not because of a coincidence, We have all been connected for many lifetimes.”

Connection to Guru and the Tradition is shown in many ways. Another form of reassurance I received was through a sudden visit to a Sai temple in Wembley. This was certainly the call of Sai Baba! The visit to the temple became very special as unexpectedly I was able to be a part of a very sacred ritual as well as I receiving a shawl that was used to adorn Baba’s idol as a gift! The following day I saw a photo of the chief Priest of Shirdi offering a garland to Mohanji at the first meeting of all the Kailash Yatris in Kathmandu. This was indeed a reminder of the statement of Preeti Duggal ji. Experiencing Kailash Yatra with Mohanji!

 

The Master continued to shower his grace when I got a chance to join the ACT Foundation team for the Skanda Vale charity food stall on the 10th and 11th of August. On the 11th of August, there was also a special function of the reunion of Lord Muruga with his consorts.

After closing our food stall, Subhasree, Moushumi and I reached the hall where there was a multitude of people already sitting and enjoying the devotional bhajans. In a miraculous way, all 3 of us got some space to sit next to the Sisters right in front of the altar. We realised this was none other than Mohanji listening to the true cries of love and showering his grace on us to fulfil all our desires. Suddenly the Swami invited all 3 of us along with the community members and a few other volunteers to participate in the special ceremony of sprinkling petals of flowers to Lord Muruga and his consorts while chanting the auspicious 108 Namavali. This was beyond the ordinary and I knew from the bottom of my heart that it was Mohanji and the Guru Mandala’s blessings for us. We were closely participating in such a powerful and auspicious ritual, while the other devotees with Mohanji were at Kailash Mansarovar! The grace didn’t stop there. We even got the chance to join the procession with fire lamps in our hands going inside the main temple and we witnessed a very powerful aarti offered in the main Garbhagriha. During this I saw several Divine beings appear as beautiful lights moving up and around, dancing to unheard celestial music playing in the background, while Mohanji was blessing the devotees on the banks of Kailash Mansarovar.

I was deeply touched and moved to tears as I went through these divine experiences. This was no less than a direct pilgrimage to Kailash! These were truly blissful and gratifying experiences.

After these sublime experiences at the temple, we decided to visit the Lord Datta temple. The place was so serene that we all decided to do Kriya sitting in front of Lord Datta. Suddenly, I noticed a light shining from the Datta idol which was then replaced by the smiling face of Mohanji.

This was the most blissful experience for me as I felt Mohanji himself reassuring me of our connection, and my presence with him and the other devotees in Kailash.

My sincere gratitude to the Divinity and the entire Guru Mandala for such grace and blessings.

By Subhasree Thottungal

11th August 2019. A very auspicious day. While Mohanji and about a hundred devotees were at Kailash Manasarovar, we were in Skanda Vale during the same weekend, doing a charity food stall. The entire Skanda Vale was in bliss in celebrating the special function of the reunion of Lord Murugan with his consorts. The function brought so much awareness of the divine presence and high energy in this powerful place. I felt Mohanji’s presence there every moment. Mohanji and Skanda Vale have a special equation, which I have realised with some divine awareness, as narrated in my earlier blog, ‘The truth beyond revelations’.

Soon after the ceremonies inside the Subramanyam temple, with heightened energy and deep gratitude, Moushumi, NellyAnne and I went to the Lord Datta’s temple. It’s almost a year (1 year on 15thAugust), since this Lord Datta temple in Skanda Vale had come into existence and Mohanji had done the prana pratishta of the Lord Datta idol! As Mohanji had said at that time, a part of His soul is inside this Datta Idol! Whenever I visit here and see Lord Datta, I feel Mohanji’s presence.

When I reached the Datta temple, I felt the urge to do Kriya there. Moushumi and NellyAnne joined in too. Kriya in front of Datta took me to a different plane altogether. As if I was transported elsewhere! And then appeared this divine vision!

The vision of Mohanji in his white attire, sitting in front of Lake Mansarovar, with lots of people seated around him. The blue water of Mansarovar with tiny waves, blue sky with white clouds showing the presence of many divine beings. Though I could see many human beings, the only face that was clear was Mohanji’s.

When I finished Kriya, for a few moments, my hands were numb. I opened my eyes and looked at Datta’s face.Such a striking smile as if Mohanji was standing there and smiling at me and saying, “You wanted to see me at Mansarovar, right? Are you happy now?”

We all knew that on this same day Mohanji was at Mansarovar with all the other devotees. Mohanji had assured us, we will be with him, in spirit. How true is that!

The vision I had during Kriya showed this through the divine communion with my Guru.

Mohanji_Manasarovar_2019.jpeg
Mohanji in front of Manasarovar, 2019

The very next day, I received a picture someone sent from Kailash, which showed that the previous day, on 11th Aug, Mohanji sitting in front of Mansarovar and devotees around him! Mohanji in his white attire! Such a resemblance between my vision and this photo proved everything! The vision during Kriya was indeed a divine darshan that Mohanji showed me sitting in front of Datta thousands of miles away, but not too far from him, not too far from Kailash. Such grace. Such love from my Guru. Words falling short to describe!

This was not all. I was reminded of such grace happening in two earlier years when Mohanji had been to Kailash. Although I was far away physically, I still had the darshan of Mohanji in Kailash. I must write those two accounts too.

August 2016. Mohanji was in Kailash with about 80 devotees. I had been following the updates regularly. Photos from Kailash were not just beautiful scenic images. They had life and were passing the Shiva tattva energy. The power was such that sitting on the seashore of Lanzarote (a small island, part of the Canary Islands in Spain, where we were on a family holiday), a small hillock just inside the sea, felt like Kailash. “Om Namah Shivaay” chanting came out spontaneously. Suddenly, the clouds above took a circular form. The epicentre lying just above the tip of the small hillock! Morning sun rays piercing through these clouds indicated definitely something divine!

At that point I had such connection with Kailash, I felt as if I was with Mohanji in Kailash. I thought, next Kailash with Mohanji, I must go.

The year passed. Kailash with Mohanji in 2017 came. However, I couldn’t go! While Mohanji and the devotees were in Kailash in 2017, devotees all over the world were doing a 24 hour long continuous chanting on 16th July 2017. In London, at my home, we were doing the group chanting, during which I had a vision that

Mohanji was standing inside Mansarovar. The water was blue coloured and crystal clear. I then saw all the Gods & Goddesses, Ganesh, Lakshmi, Saraswati and all the other Gods in the sky, showering flowers on him.

This vision was so clear and so divine. After the chanting was over, I shared this vision with everyone and expressed my gratitude to Mohanji for giving me darshan while in Mansarovar.

Two days later, a photo came in with the update from Kailash, the photo of Mohanji inside Mansarovar. This matched the vision I had during chanting.

Mohanji_Manasarovar_1_2017.jpg
Mohanji inside the Manasarovar, 2017

My heart was filled with deep gratitude to have received this darshan despite being physically so far away in London!

However, somewhere inside me, I had a slight feeling of guilt. Where did my desire for Kailash go? How did I leave this opportunity to go to Kailash with Mohanji in 2017? A few months later, in November 2017, I got a chance to be with Mohanji in Serbia and I couldn’t hold myself but to express this feeling of guilt to him. The spontaneous answer that came from Mohanji, left me speechless.

“I just don’t carry people to Kailash physically, I carry people spiritually too. You have been to Kailash with me spiritually. Your desire has been fulfilled. Hence no more desire.”

Well, what more did I need to understand?

Indeed Mohanji carried me with Him in 2016 and in 2017 too! This year in 2019, before Mohanji left for Kailash, I had no doubt, I knew Mohanji would carry me with him, along with all the other devotees connected to him. Mohanji’s message for all connected to Him,

“You are inside me. How can you be separate from me?”

filled my heart with gratitude and profound love for the unconditional love and compassion he has for me, for all of us!

Through this vision during Kriya in front of Lord Datta, Mohanji proved this yet again! Not that I needed any proof. But he knows that this naïve heart still desires every single vision of my beloved Guru, physically or astrally! His darshan makes me pure, makes me complete, liberates me from all worldly desires.

I am so deeply touched by the grace that the Tradition and Mohanji shower on me (in fact on all of us), much beyond our expectations and imaginations. My deep gratitude to Mohanji my Guru, and this sacred Tradition that we belong to!

Jai Shree Datta.

Jai Mohanji.

By Moushumi Patankar

On the 10th and 11th of August, my family and I were with the ACT Foundation team for the food seva in Skanda Vale. On the 11th, after attending the powerful reunion ceremony of Lord Subramanyam, Subhasree, NellyAnne and I went to the Lord Datta temple.

When we were in front of Lord Datta, we decided to sit down for Kriya.

As soon as I sat, I felt as if my whole body was rotating in 360 degrees. After a few moments, I saw beautiful lights; blue/light green just like the colour of a beautiful lake, orange/ yellow/gold like bright sunshine or a havan (sacred fire). I then saw many faces. The first face was of my beloved Datta swaroopa Mohanji who was right in front of us, smiling at us. And then a thought, aah so many faces along with Mohanji’s! In the end, just before finishing Kriya I saw Mohanji’s aura!

I realised the vision I had during this Kriya in front of Datta was of Mohanji with the other Kailash Yatris in front of Mansarovar! Without any expectations, without any imagination, Mohanji and Lord Datta graced me with this divine vision, so far away from Kailash.

My deep gratitude to Mohanji for filling every single moment of my life with his grace.

Faith can move Mountains

Faith is the Key - Life transformed by the grace of Mohanji

“I held you the day you were born.”

These were the words Mohanji uttered as I left my meeting with Him for the first time in Shirdi, 2016.

Looking back at my life prior to meeting Him physically, I now know that He has held my hand, protecting me from the hedonistic life that I led.

My dad passed away when I was 5. Since then, life has been an emotionally turbulent ride. There was always a sadness looming in my heart. I’ve battled with depression from a young age. It is a numbness, a heaviness that I have felt most of my life.

It (negativity) loves to keep one stuck, stagnant and seemingly safe. Except that I did not realise that I was depressed, as I filled my life with parties and alcohol to keep the sadness at bay.

Depression - It's Symptoms
Depression and it’s Symptoms (Credits: olatorera.com/)

After my divorce in 2015, everything that I had suppressed since I was a girl came to the surface. I did not want to burden anyone with my feelings so l tried to cope by myself. Lost, empty and feeling very alone, I had become accustomed to certain emotions as it was all I had ever known. It had become normal. Lifeless…dead…debilitating.

WHEN THE DISCIPLE IS READY, THE MASTER APPEARS

Faith is the Key - Life transformed by Grace of Mohanji

During the month of April 2016, my mum mentioned that a spiritual Master- Mohanji, would be visiting Durban for a program. I visited the Mohanji website but it did not spark my interest then. I wished my mum well and told her to enjoy the program. My mum experienced profound changes that year and started regularly attending the programs at the Datta Tapovan ashram in Durban.

Fast forward to September 2016, two weeks before my 37th birthday, I received a call from my mum. She mentioned that an appointment had been confirmed for a healing session for me with Swami Bhaktananda – Mohanji’s senior disciple. I was annoyed because I did not want to fly to Durban, but she urged me to come. I’m so grateful that she did – thank you, mummy.

He knew I needed help. There is no other explanation.

My healing was so intense and scary – nothing had prepared me for that experience! I left the ashram feeling relieved, grateful and not a little confused. Later, I realised that Mohanji must have orchestrated everything.

MEETING MOHANJI AT SHIRDI

Mohanji - The Light that came to remove the darkness

By Mohanji’s grace, I travelled to Shirdi in December 2016 for “A retreat with Mohanji in Shirdi.” I had no knowledge of Shirdi Sai Baba and remember wondering what on earth I was doing there. This was my first physical interaction with Mohanji, and I had no idea what to expect. I was so nervous as I walked into the Ahimsa restaurant where Mohanji and His other devotees were seated. He greeted me with a warm smile and shared a chocolate brownie with all of us.

The 12 days in Shirdi were magical! I felt so alive! Mohanji knew that my connection with Shirdi Baba had been there all along. My heart expanded when I listened to the Shej aarati (the night aarati) at Dwarkamai. For twelve days Mohanji showered us with love and kindness that I have never known in my life. It was an extraordinary experience and one I will never forget. Now, I am still annoyed with myself for not attending the program in April – a missed opportunity. I console myself with the thought that He knows when we are ready.

KAILASH WITH MOHANJI – 2017

Within eight months of connecting to Mohanji, I had travelled not just to Shirdi but also to Kailash! I often asked myself what someone like me was doing in Kailash with Mohanji, and having dips in Mansarovar! It felt like a dream. At the same time, I know that all these events are through His grace. He sees me, not my mistakes.

Kailash Manasarovar with Mohanji

Mohanji is incredibly unassuming. It is therefore difficult for us to comprehend the magnitude of who He really is. Do we realise the sacred union that we all share with Mohanji, with each other, with this path that we are so blessed to be on? 7.5 billion people on the planet and we are all connected to Him, whether we realise it or not.

He selflessly gives love and time to whoever needs it, anywhere in the world. My hope is that we never take His grace and love for granted.

The path, however, is not all plain sailing. This path of Shiva will test one, and I can say that I have been tested.

Tests come in many different forms: family, friends, devotees, blogs and one’s ego. Who and what should one believe? I choose to believe in my own experiences.

I have had numerous tests. Most recently, in February 2019, after attending the Kumbh Mela retreat, I left India feeling angry, jealous, hurt, and everything else in-between. I arrived in South Africa with thoughts like “I don’t need this shit.” Only after I calmed down, did I pray to Mohanji about my foolishness, and thanked Him for every emotion I felt. He brought to light that I have not accepted myself fully. It is something that I am now working on. Mohanji often mentions that spending time with Him is not as important as getting to know oneself. I realised that all the emotions that were triggered during this trip were for my growth.

Mohanji knows what each one of us needs, and what is necessary for us to evolve.

Mohanji has taught me that I chose each experience in this life – the depression, my family, every interaction and every emotion. As challenging as it seems at times,

  • I hold on tight to my connection with Him, knowing He is with me at all times.
  • He is my sunshine when there are dark days.
  • He guides me and protects me without asking anything of me.
  • I am almost embarrassed by my faith, but I know that He is holding my hand and that He has given me the tools to live this life with awareness.

I know that He held me the day I was born.

Now, I feel there is much work to do and no time to waste. I want to be free from all these samskaras (latent karmic tendencies) so that I can be useful in this world. Please keep an eye out on my Facebook profile for more of my future experiences.

Jai Mohanji …I love you, Mohanji.

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 8 – ‘How the grace of Mohanji transformed my life’

mohanji

Suvarna Singh recounts the transformation in her life after connecting to Mohanji. She had tried to counter the heaviness of her emotions for many years. After she began to feel Mohanji’s compassion and love, her life changed dramatically. Read on to see how this happened.

The grace of Mohanji

by Suvarna Singh, South Africa

I bow to the feet of my Guru, my Saviour, my Father – Mohanji.

“I held you the day you were born.”

These were the words Mohanji uttered as I left my one-on-one session with Him in Shirdi, 2016.

Something needed to change. Enter Mohanji.

The rest, as they say, is history. I found my strength, my guiding light…Mohanji.

By Mohanji’s grace, I travelled to Shirdi in December 2016 for “Being with Mohanji on the Trails of Sai Baba in Shirdi.” I had no knowledge of Shirdi Sai Baba and remember wondering what on earth I was doing there.

A unique Kailash Yatra!

By Chakradhar Yakkala, Switzerland

MuktinathTemple.jpg

I am Chakradhar Yakkala from India, living in Switzerland. After reading the book ‘Autobiography of an Avadhoota’ last year, I got to know about Mohanji, and was keen to meet Him for the sole reason because He is an enlightened Master from my beloved Shirdi Sai Baba’s lineage. I met Mohanji for the first time in Slovenia in 2017, and received Shaktipat from Him. While leaving the satsang, I thought I might not meet Him again. Intriguingly, two months after meeting Him, I felt for the first time that He was talking to me telepathically. He said to me, “Come to Kailash.” I replied, “Yes, I will.” Then He asked, “Would you also come to Kailash if you lose your job?” I said, “Yes, I will come even if I lose my job!”

Kailash_with_Mohanji.jpg

Later, I said to myself, “Me and losing my job, impossible.” Afterwards, when I left for work, the first thing my boss said to me was, “Sorry Chakri, I am running out of funds, and I have to terminate your job contract!” This was highly unexpected and with just 6 months of job remaining, I had to really save money to be able to make it to Kailash. Two months down the line, I was very agitated one day thinking about what will happen to me if I spend all the remaining savings to go to Kailash, but was still prepared to do that. With an agitated mind I went to bed, and during my sleep at some point, I could see that Mohanji appeared and stood next to me. His body was only made of white light. I could see Him with closed eyes. He said to me, “Don’t worry, I will take care of you!”

An angel in our midst. In Limpopo.

The next day following the dream, I got a call for a job interview from who I hardly even expected a response. With almost no effort, I cleared three different phases of the interview, and they offered me a job! Things happened in the most miraculous way for me on my way to get this new job.

Since the day I saw Mohanji in my dream (as mentioned above), I never felt any separation from Him. As Mohanji says, “You will know that you are connected to Me when you don’t feel any separation wherever I am.”

mohanji_connecting.jpg

I could connect to Him from anywhere and anytime, and He would provide me with support. Only then did I become convinced that He is my very own Guru, always protecting and guiding me in mysterious ways. As He repeatedly mentions, “I always do my job,” I would say that it is 200% true, and He comes to you in the most unexpected ways because He is an ocean of consciousness neither bound by space or physicality.

Mohanji_Kathmandu.jpg

Mohanji_Kathmandu.jpg

I applied for “Kailash with Mohanji 2018,” and my application was selected by Mohanji’s team. I paid the entire fee in advance, and was eagerly waiting to go to Kailash. Two weeks before my travel to Kathmandu from Switzerland for the Kailash trip, I was asked to fly to India a week before my intended date of travel, in order to submit my passport at the Chinese embassy in India for acquiring a Tibetan visa. To submit the passport 1-2 weeks in advance was a new rule imposed by the Chinese authorities in 2018 for the Indian passport holders who are willing to travel to Kailash. I could not prepone my travel and therefore, sent my passport from Switzerland by FedEx, a courier which usually delivers the parcel to India in a span of 24 hours. I sent my passport to an India / Nepal based travel agency that works with Mohanji’s foundation for organizing Kailash trips every year. Their plan was to get my Tibetan visa in 5 working days and return my passport along with the visa, which should reach me by post before my intended date of travel. Unexpectedly, my passport got stuck at the Indian customs for some reason and was not delivered to the intended receiver! I had to write to the Indian customs and had to make many phone calls to get my passport back, without being delivered to the intended travel agency. All my hopes to visit Kailash were shattered and I received my passport back without the Tibetan visa, two days before my already planned journey from Switzerland to Kailash. The travel agency requested me to come to Kathmandu, Nepal despite not having a Tibetan visa. They told me that they will try to contact some influential people who might help me to get a visa for Tibet.

I then flew to Kathmandu, handed over my passport to the travel agency and waited for 2 days. They tried their best to get a Tibetan visa for me, but their efforts were of no avail. When my visa to Tibet did not happen, I went to Mohanji and said, “Father, they say that my visa is not going to happen,” and He simply replied, “That is because you are going to come along with Me to Kailash next year.” After sometime, I asked, “Father, where should I go now,” and He said, “You go to Muktinath and make the best use of that place.” On that same evening, all the people who were going to Kailash had a satsang with Mohanji, and He said to everyone, “Chakradhar will tell you all how difficult it is to go to Muktinath.”

The route is Khatmandu-Pokhra-Jomsom-Muktinath. There are short duration flights of approx. 20 min connecting from Khatmandu to Pokhra and Pokhra to Jomsom. From Jomsom, one can go to Muktinath either by Jeep in 1.5hrs or by an 8 hour trek of 25km. Logically speaking, it shouldn’t be difficult to go to Muktinath, therefore, initially, I couldn’t understand why Father said to everyone that it would be difficult for me to go there. After reaching Pokhra, I waited for 5 hours to take a flight to Jomsom. All the flights were cancelled that day due to unfavorable weather. I thought of taking a flight the next day, but the airport authorities told me that the chances of planes flying to Jomsom the next day seem bleak.

In the meantime, a woman from Ukraine came to me and asked if I would like to share a jeep ride to Jomsom with her. She also told me that she is a spiritual seeker, and was planning to go to Muktinath. I agreed and travelled by road with her to Jomsom. It took 12 hours to just travel 90km by road! It was the most difficult of all the journeys I had done in my entire life! 90% of the time, I was shaking or jumping in the jeep due to the nature of the route; the roads were also narrow and highly risky at many points. In addition, our jeep stopped at random places and at times either because there was a landslide or someone’s vehicle was broken, which blocked the entire route. That is when I understood the words of our Father, “Chakradhar will tell you how difficult it is to go to Muktinath.”

The next day, I wanted to trek from Jomsom to Muktinath, and the woman from Ukraine also joined me for trekking. On our way she said to me, “You know, I have been trying to connect to Shambhala Masters in my meditation for a very long time, and I got an intuition to make a trip to Muktinath. On the trip I will meet someone who will help me connect with Shambhala Masters, which will help me in my evolution.” In addition, she kept on referring to golden color all the time. I was extremely surprised and said to her, “I think I’m the one you are supposed to meet, and my Master Mohanji is connected to Shambhala and represents a lineage known as the Golden Tradition of Shambhala.” She was happy after knowing about our lineage, and I gave her a photo of Mohanji with the foundation logo. I felt extremely privileged that I became a part of Mohanji’s plan to draw a deserving seeker towards Him and our tradition.

There are 108 sacred water streams in the form of a semicircle behind the temple of Muktinath. One needs to take a shower from all those cold streams, and then take a dip in the two ponds in front of the temple before going near the temple’s sanctum sanctorum for the darshan of Lord Muktinath.

I took showers in all those streams on my first day, followed by dips in both the ponds around 3pm, and found that the temple was closed. No one around, I sat in the open in front of the closed temple to do some simple meditation. In no time, the temple guard came to me and said, “Please come sir, I will get it opened for you.” He called a Buddhist nun in charge of the temple, and she came and opened the temple just for the sake of my darshan alone! Although I was nobody there, I was given a beautiful darshan like a special guest, due to the blessings of our Father.

Few days before I reached Muktinath, Mohanji’s team, upon his request, sent all of us a document of a highly evolved alien’s secret interview. I started reading it on the same day I got it, and went on reading all throughout my journey towards Muktinath. After my first darshan of Muktinath, I continued reading that document, and I came across a paragraph where the alien speaks about an advanced being from their race who came to our planet to fight dark forces and guide earthlings towards liberation. The alien says that the people on earth refer to that advanced being as Vishnu. In other words, the alien was talking about liberation, a word synonymous to Mukti; and it is talking about an exalted being who is often referred in the Indian languages also as Nath (other than the yogic tradition). The subtle meaning is that the alien is referring to Lord Vishnu’s role as Muktinath, and I ended up reading that paragraph in the village of Muktinath, after a few hours of having my first darshan of lord Muktinath!

I was amazed at the timing when I came across those lines in the document, and my devotion towards Lord Muktinath multiplied 100 fold!

The day I reached Muktinath, a dog continuously barked standing outside the hotel of my residence that night for a few hours. I strongly felt like the dog was barking for me (never had such a feeling before). The same thing happened on the second and the third nights post my arrival. On the third night, I stood outside my hotel’s residence and tried to pet that dog, and it permitted me to do that effortlessly without any problem. I went into my hotel and came out after a few minutes with some cookies and searched for that dog. It was standing a few feet away from my hotel in the dark, in the company of another dog. I called it and took out some cookies, and it came to me running; surprisingly, the other dog ran away despite seeing that I was there with some cookies in my hand to feed them. I fed the dog to my heart’s fill, and went back to my hotel room. The next day I was exploring some nearby mountains along with someone from the hotel staff. While I was trekking, I asked my co-trekker from the hotel, if it is normal that some dog comes and continuously barks in the night outside our hotel every day? He answered that it is not so and he has been observing that phenomenon only for the past 3 nights (exactly since the day I arrived there). His answer confirmed my doubt that the dog had indeed come for me, and intriguingly, after I fed that dog, it had never barked again outside my hotel’s residence on any night since then, until my last day there. I felt then that it might be some karmic cleansing Mohanji had planned for me at that sacred place, which was reinforced to me later by a great being I met there, about whom I will mention later.

On my second day of arrival, I went to the room where they perform yagna in the premises of Muktinath temple. I expressed my interest to the priest in charge to perform yagna alongside him.

Muktinath_Priest.jpg

He told me to come the next morning, and then asked me if I had eaten or not. I told him that I was planning to eat and requested him to join me. My plan was to take him to a hotel and feed him, but instead, he took me to his small ashram, offered a place for me to stay and sleep as long as I wanted without asking anything in return, and made some tasty chai for me. While I was having that chai and talking to one of his friends, he cooked for me; with the very minimum resources he had and offered me that food with all his heart. I was so touched by his love and compassion that it almost brought tears to my eyes. After I had my food, he insisted that I come to him twice a day and eat with him while he would cook for me. Afterwards, every time I met him, he would first enquire if I had eaten, then would joke about some random thing, followed by laughing and hugging. He was a rare being of pure and immense love, and I was so lucky and blessed to meet him in Muktinath.

On one of my days there, I did an arduous trek, and was very tired. I was on my way back to my hotel room after the trek, and came across a 60 yr old couple from India who could not walk up the hill leading to Muktinath temple. Due to their severe health complications, they were giving up. Although I was exhausted, I somehow felt like helping them to reach the temple of Muktinath. I started talking to them, held their hands firmly and walked along with them. I continuously tried to divert their attention from their fear and pain to something else by talking about random matters while they were walking with me. Whenever they felt like giving up, which happened multiple times, I gave them encouragement, and somehow managed to take them to the temple of Muktinath on the mountain, while holding their hands all the time. After they had their darshan, I brought them back to their jeep which was about to leave Muktinath. The husband asked me why I felt like helping them when I saw them. I told him that there is one lesson, which I absorbed well from my Master, and that was to always see what I could do for people around me in need, which is what made me come to you naturally without much thinking. That night, when I went to bed, I had a strong stimulation of my third eye that never happened to me before with such intensity. I felt like Mohanji blessed me immensely for implementing His teaching in a wholehearted manner.

On my last day in Muktinath, I went to the main temple’s priest, and requested him to chant mantras for transmitting blessings of Muktinath to my biological family and Mohanji’s family, by telling the gotras and the names of both the families. After the temple priest finished chanting the mantras, I asked him for directions to hike up in the mountains beyond Muktinath. After explaining the route, he also told me without asking that there is a Swami up there living alone in the mountains doing his spiritual practices. I proceeded with my trekking as per the plan, beyond the temple, and I did not come across any isolated structure indicating the presence of any Swami up there. In the late afternoon, when I trekked back, I saw an isolated room like structure from a distance. I said to myself, if that Swami lives there, and if I am supposed to meet him, he should appear visible to me outside his residence. I saw him outside his residence in a minute, and I went straight there.

Swami_at_Muktinath.jpg

He invited me inside his single room that had a cave like setting, and is located in the middle of nowhere. I looked into his eyes that were like an embodiment of stillness. He lives there and walks on those mountains barefooted throughout the year. I introduced myself, and told him that my Guruji had asked me to visit Muktinath, and that is why I was there. When I showed him the picture of Mohanji, he looked and paid respects to our Father in the photograph. When I sat down to talk to him, his first words were the following, “I was expecting you this morning, and even made tea for you. You did not even see me when you were trekking up, you just passed this way. I thought of calling you by shouting from a distance, but then I felt like I am not supposed to call you.” He then added, “You cannot come here without your Guru’s kripa, only sadhaks with Guru kripa can come here. Lord Vishnu Himself lived in this room and did some spiritual practices 2.5 million years ago. You can meditate and experience for yourself!”

When I sat down and closed my eyes, it was so powerful that I was strongly pulled into meditation. I literally could not open my eyes, and had to force them open after some time (normally it is vice versa, I cannot close my eyes for long, hahaha!). By the time I opened my eyes, he made some sweet tasting tea for me, which only I had to drink. I then touched his feet and asked for his blessings, which he gave me by touching my spine in a certain way. When I was about to leave, he expressed his interest to also walk along with me down to the Muktinath temple and also further down to Muktinath village. I had developed pain in my ankles due to some tough trekking, which miraculously disappeared without a trace after that short time I spent in his residence! While we were walking down towards the temple, I held an umbrella for him while it was raining, and he was teaching me different things like a loving father.

I am mentioning here only the key aspects of our conversation. Without me saying anything about my spiritual practices, he said to me, “Sadhaks/spiritual practitioners can do any spiritual practice effortlessly except the one that is taught by their Guru, because when you try to do that, your karma comes in your way.” This was exactly what I was doing unconsciously (performing different spiritual practices except Consciousness Kriya given to me by our Father Mohanji) at that point in time! He then said to me, “Feeding dogs cleanses the inherent demonic patterns within you,” which reminded me of the feeding I did to a dog few days before, outside my hotel (as explained above). He walked barefoot on that difficult mountain terrain, and was a little extreme in dealing with himself; I thought of our Guruji Avadhoota Nadananda as he reminded me of him. He then immediately started to speak about the sadhana of Goddess Tara, which our Guruji Nadananda did (as mentioned in his autobiography)! He then asked me to buy him some cigarettes, and took me to the village of Muktinath. Out of all the shops that were there, he took me to one particular shop and said, “You buy from here.” I had a verbal fight with the shopkeeper of that shop a couple of days ago! I went to that shop and had to drop my ego completely in order to ask him for cigarettes. Also, the shopkeeper could not be angry with me because I was there with the Swami whom he very much respected. Therefore, we both had to keep our egos down and interact pleasantly in front of the Swami. After I bought the cigarettes and offered to Swami, he bid farewell to me with the following words, “Next time if you come here, of course only by the wish and will of your Guruji, please come and stay with me; don’t stay in these hotels!”

By the compassionate blessings of our Father Mohanji, I had such an amazing and spontaneous pilgrimage to Muktinath that will be etched in my heart forever.

Now comes the experience of Kailash. Two weeks after I returned to Switzerland from Muktinath, one night, I did my Consciousness Kriya and went to sleep. In my sleep, I felt as if I was lifted up from my sleeping spot, and I started travelling somewhere. In other words, my subtle body left my physical body and went on a journey. During my journey, it was indicated that I was going to Kailash. I was so excited thinking that I would get to see many beautiful mountains and lakes like Gauri kund on my travel. I saw none of what I thought I would see or was excited to see. Instead, after travelling sometime, I saw some dark hills, something like an abandoned place. Mohanji was standing there alone. In no time, I transformed into a tiny triangle, and merged with Mohanji at a particular point located on the midline of His forehead. After merging, He said to me, “You are in Kailash now.” Merging into Him was an experience beyond all experiences; it felt as if I ceased to exist as an individual person or entity, and only existed like some shapeless and formless witness. Next morning, when I woke up from my sleep, I felt extremely tired. Few minutes later, I could recollect the whole experience in my awakened state. Sometime later, I could also recall Mohanji explaining in one of His satsangs about Kailash, that the journey to outward Kailash is to reach the inner Kailash that is already present in every one of us. Father also mentions in that satsang that the inner Kailash is located between Ajna chakra and Sahasrara chakra, and the kundalini after raising beyond Ajna Chakra has to pass through that inner Kailash before it reaches its beloved Shiva residing in the Sahasrara chakra. In other words, Mohanji unified me into His own inner Kailash, which is a rare and precious gift that goes far beyond the power of my articulation! Such is the love of a true Master that always flows towards you like an infinite river beyond your imagination and comprehension, when there is trust that is firmly rooted in Him.

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.

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.

“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.
