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.

Dear Mohanji, our deep gratitude to You for the ocean deep inspiration and continuous guidance in bringing out “a Mohanji” from each one’s heart.

If every devotee / follower of Mohanji displayed even 10% of what Mohanji truly is, this world will be the real heaven, where there is only unconditional love and synchronicity between all beings of Mother Earth!

We will not stop this drive with this one flower with 108 petals. We will keep continuing creating more flowers. Feel free to write yours at testimonials@mohanji.org.
In the meantime, please enjoy the fragrance of this sacred flower with all its 108 soft and sweet petals.

Videos with these expressions are also published on YouTube!

The Shield – Mohanji’s Kavacha

Mohanji Kavacha

Our Gurur Mohanji is working relentlessly and tirelessly working round the clock to protect us: something that most of us know and have experienced.  This is clearly evident from the following experiences.

Preeti Duggal, Bangalore

Late one evening, after dinner, Preeti’s children and sister-in-law, Devyani, went out for ice-creams to a frequent haunt, not far from her home in Bangalore, India. After enjoying their ice-creams, while walking back towards the car, a person suddenly appeared from nowhere and tried to snatch Devyani’s handbag. The snatcher gave her a hard push and she fell flat in the middle of the road! The road was a busy one with fast-moving vehicles and it was miraculous that there was only one speeding bike that stopped inches from her! Thoroughly shaken and in a panic, my daughter rapidly got everyone in the car and tried the ignition,  but it wouldn’t start. She then called her father, Rajiv, who quickly reached the spot, faced no problem to start the car, and drove the family to the nearby hospital.  By the time they reached the hospital, Devyani was in great pain, unable to move. We expected a fracture or internal injury from that hard fall on the concrete road.

All this while, Preeti constantly chanted Mohanji’s Gayatri  Mantra and transferred  Mai-Tri Healing energy to Devyani. After a couple of hours, to the great relief of the family, the X-Ray and scan confirmed that there was no fracture nor internal injury.  When they returned home after this 3-4 hour-long ordeal, on retrospection, the family realized one thing very clearly – how much Mohanji had protected them during this incident.

Mohanji, the compassionate guru that he is, protects not just those of us who believe in him, but their families, and the lineage, both in the past and future! Devyani could have been easily hit by a fast-moving vehicle when she fell in the middle of the busy road, yet there was only one bike on the road that stopped in the nick of time. This does not seem to be a coincidence. Certainly, a big karma had to be exhausted, but it happened in a much lighter way.

We thank you Preeti Duggal, for sharing this beautiful experience with us.

Jai Mohanji!

Chandralekha, Palakkad

Chandralekha.jpg

I am a psychiatric counsellor, working for a psychiatric hospital in Palakkad. Since the past two years, I have been regularly attending Mohanji’s meditation sessions at the Shirdi Sai Baba Temple at Palakkad. Some days ago, Mr. Devdas gave me a copy of the ‘Siva Kavacham’ chanted by Mohanji and I started listening to the Kavacham from that day itself.

The following Monday, when I was sitting in my counselling room, a man was furiously rushing around with a metal rod having sharp ends. He was a psychiatric patient. Hearing a loud noise of something breaking, I hurried out to know what was going on. Suddenly, the patient rushed towards me with the metal rod.  I tried to shut the door quickly, but he pushed the door and tried to forcibly enter the room.  Struggling, I found a small gap and ran out of the room and managed to overpower him from behind. All happened within minutes. Soon, the other staff members heard the sounds and came to my rescue and took him out.

I am usually a calm and quiet person, and I have never experienced a situation like this in the past. I don’t know how I got the strength and the idea to manage the situation that day!  I also realised that neither patient nor I was hurt or injured in any way. I am sure my saviour saved me and my family!

Thanks a lot Mohanji, for being with me and my family.

It was then that I understood the purpose of getting the Shiva Kavacham.”

Rajeshwari, Delhi

Mohanji, SP is unwell with altitude sickness. He left this morning for Ladakh and it hit as soon as he landed. Please be with him.” This was the message I sent Mohanji a couple of days ago.

Recently, my younger daughter Devika and her father, husband, SP,  left for Ladakh, on a work trip. Ladakh has always been a part of our lives for over 30 years.  We went there as often as we could, taking our children there for the first time when they were barely 9 and 7-year-olds. The altitude, the biting cold, the terrain…none of these things had ever bothered us so far, even though SP suffers from chronic Asthma. So when Devika called asking me if I had heard of a tablet called Diamox, I panicked – the tablet was what one took in case of altitude sickness. She added that SP had been a bit dizzy since landing and he had blacked out on reaching their homestay. The nearest doctor was away visiting another village, and taking SP back to a hospital in Leh would take a couple of hours. I said a quick prayer – Mohanji’s Gayatri – and then told her to go ahead and give SP the medicine (even though we had no idea if SP would turn out to be allergic to the drug). I disconnected the call and immediately sent the message to Mohanji.

His response was quick – “I am with him”. Mohanji also asked me to chant a mantra as often as I could. The rest of my day was packed with meetings. I chanted in the car, between my meetings and on the way home.  I tried their mobiles every hour but I was unable to get through. Was I worried? Yes, I was, but I knew deep down that it would work out as it was meant to. When my phone finally rang around 10 pm, I heard SP’s calm voice, a bit softer than normal, telling me that he was fine. I said I had been worried. And he said, “Yes, I know and you told Mohanji.”

As I write this I marvel at the expansive silence that resides within me despite the patchwork that life weaves around me time and again. Mohanji has shown me the plausibility of faith and the positive impact it has on me and everyone around me.

Somewhere I have begun to understand what Mohanji means when he says, “I am with you”.

As I write this SP is back at work, still in Ladakh!

These experiences prove beyond doubt that the Guru is always by our side gently holding our hand unconditionally and walking us through the storms of life towards liberation.

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.

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”.

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.
