Being Unconditional

Subhasree, London

Gratitude in Action!

Today (18th Aug 2020) is the day for expressing gratitude for our Guru through actions.

Well, how can I express my gratitude to my eternal Guru, Mohanji? In which actions? I asked this question to myself this morning. My every breath, my every thought, my every action is his! So what can I do for him? What does he even need from me?

Well, whenever I have asked Mohanji, “How can I serve you,” he always says only one statement,

 “Serve the world.”

Though it’s the truth that even serving the world is made possible only because of him, he is the doer, he does it! I do not serve, He serves the world!

So what’s left for me to do then? Only thing I can do maybe.  To share some gems of wisdom that I get from him, not by lecture but through real-life experiences that he shows me through his own living example. Every time I have been around Mohanji, in his physical presence, I have observed many such gems of wisdom that he keeps giving us.

Let me share a couple more examples through which he has taught me of ‘Being Unconditional.’ In this write-up, I will not use the names of the real persons as we do not want to cause any kind of disrespect to anyone.

Mohanji_walkimg on the path of uncondionality

This is almost 2 years back. Mohanji and Deviji were invited to a global event of a spiritual congregation; where there were many other spiritual leaders present too. Along with a few other people from Mohanji family, I was very fortunate to be there too and was serving him as one of his assistants at that time.

While from mornings to late evenings were packed with many events, speeches by other leaders etc., I was observing Mohanji who was leaving a positive mark in everyone’s mind through his behaviour and treatment to others.

While most people had their own groups following around, maintaining distance, having their boundaries (to maintain some status maybe!) even during the social gathering time, Mohanji made sure that he meets and greets everyone politely, with a smile, talking to them very compassionately. Most of the time, he would even invite others to sit with him and offer a cup of coffee or so. During meal times, Mohanji would always invite others to sit next to him. Such a gesture often surprised many of the delegates. In a very impersonal environment, Mohanji was treating everyone with kindness and love as if he was the host of the event.

Also, it was very noticeable that Mohanji would always talk to the other leaders with ultimate respect and humility. There wouldn’t be a drop of ego or race to receive attention! In fact, there is one thing I noticed in this hi-profile spiritual congregation that surprised me. Many other so-called top spiritual leaders were always busy in grabbing the attention and ensuring that they had the spotlight on them, sometimes even pushing their way to the front!

Mohanji kept himself far away from this race. As simple as when there were photos taken, while some would ensure that they stand right in front or centre and get all the visibility, Mohanji will quietly slip to the row in the back!

Every single move from Mohanji was displaying his true nature of calmness, kindness, no judging and giving respect irrespective of anyone’s status and position! Trust me; this wasn’t that easily visible in other so-called spiritual leaders!

But what happened towards the end and how Mohanji again showed his humility, his true nature of unconditional love just totally blew me off!

There were a couple of very respectable leaders who had ensured that they get the spotlights on them in every session, in every platform and nearly made it look like as if the entire event was only possible because of them! Pardon me for saying this, but at one point, I couldn’t stop being annoyed when they deliberately kept ignoring Mohanji and even treated Mohanji as if he was some ordinary guy. There have been situations when they had even turned their faces the other side when Deviji sat next to them!

Few other instances like this were making their intention very clear of ignoring the presence of Mohanji and putting Mohanji’s stature completely down so that they could be seen higher! This hypocritical behaviour was making us very uncomfortable. How do we tolerate such insults to our Guru?

But when we expressed this to Mohanji that time, Mohanji would calmly tell us to ignore and stick to our principle of unconditional love, no expectation from anyone and to be with the attitude of gratitude. It was not easy to digest how Mohanji was so easily being indifferent to such insults to himself! The cherry on the top situation came on the last day!

We all had to travel to our next destination which was a drive for 2 hours. While we were just about to go out, the so-called special guests approached Mohanji directly asking for a lift for two of them! All these days, they hardly had a proper conversation or even exchanged a smile with Mohanji!

When I heard them asking Mohanji about this lift, I nearly shouted out loud “No way!” But Mohanji took us all by surprise in welcoming them.

Trust me, it took me some time to understand and accept what Mohanji just said. I was annoyed with Mohanji and was telling him off in my head, “Why?” I am sure Mohanji didn’t take much time to read my thoughts, which also must have been very clear on my face too!

He said very calmly to us,

“What’s our tradition? Unconditional love, right? It doesn’t matter who treats us in which way. We will always show our true nature in every circumstance, which is to be unconditional love. If someone asks me for help, I cannot say no. Saying no is not in our tradition, even if it puts me in trouble. It doesn’t matter.”

I was still annoyed and didn’t want to understand why Mohanji has to be so nice. But I was quiet on top. It wasn’t still over for me yet. The time came when they had to leave in the car. It wasn’t a very big car and it had to carry 4 passengers apart from the driver! That means 3 people to sit in the back seat. In normal circumstances, Mohanji would have sat in the front and just Deviji and maybe one more person would have sat in the back. Now with the two guests coming, can you imagine, Mohanji offered the front seat to one of the guests! And he quietly came and sat in the back seat. 2 hour long drive, cramped with 3 people in the back seat of a not very big car was no way a comfort. When I saw Mohanji sitting in the back seat, that was the end of my patience. My anger was bursting out as tears which I was trying hard to hide. Deviji was sitting in the middle seat, with her long legs folded and sitting not very comfortably either.

After they left, the rest of us ordered a cab and guess what, for the 3 of us, we received a huge 9 seater car! During the 2 hour journey in that 9 seater luxury car, I was just feeling so sad, imagining the condition in which Mohanji and Deviji went in the other car and here we are going luxuriously! This was of course yet another evidence of compassionate Mohanji who always makes sure that his people are comfortable. Whether he got the right food or not, we were fed well. Whether he travelled comfortably or not, we were sent a luxury car without any extra cost or specific ask!

I couldn’t stop questioning though, why did Mohanji accept to give them a lift in his car and had to compromise in his comfort!

Well finally, when we met again at our next destination, Mohanji came out of the car, after dropping the guests at their destination (and in fact after treating them with a nice vegan lunch), as if he wasn’t in any kind of discomfort what so ever.

It was so funny to hide our emotions and Mohanji just handled our bursting emotions in such an easy way. He told us how he kept joking, making the guests laugh all the way during the journey. Mohanji, in his usual jovial way even teased Barbara (who was driving the car), saying that she was so annoyed that she, in fact, wanted to drop them off at a train station. But Mohanji ensured that they were taken right till the end gate!

Mohanji_Devi

While Mohanji was telling all this in such a light and funny way, even we couldn’t stop laughing. Finally, through that laughter, the heaviness and anger or whatever feelings I had inside, all came out. And instead, my heart was filled with appreciation for Mohanji, to see how he demonstrated being truly unconditional. No matter who treats us in what way, we exhibit our true nature! It took me quite some time to overcome my turbulent emotions, but I understood through the example that Mohanji showed himself, the stability of the foundation on which Mohanji operates on.

A couple of days back, Mohanji again demonstrated a similar example of unconditional nature and that brought this memory back to me.

Once again, a high profile leader needing some help sent a generic message out to Mohanji, with no personal mention. This was kind of a public note probably he had sent out to loads of other people, as I had received it from another source too. Sending a public note and sending it to Mohanji, who was at one point like a close friend to him, without even personal addressing, didn’t seem very respectful in my eyes. Especially when you are seeking help, at least a personal note is a minimum curtesy, I would think.

My mind said when such an impersonal public note comes; do I need to even attend to it? Well, that’s how ordinary people like me will react. Once again, Mohanji is Mohanji. He took me by surprise. While I was almost convinced to ignore this particular request, Mohanji said, “Go ahead, and do help if you can, regardless of how the request came. We will do our job, unconditionally helping whenever we can.” Within a few moments, I did what I needed to.

My head bowed down with respect and my heart filled up with appreciation and a proud feeling of my Guru Mohanji, who reminded me yet again, “Our tradition is about unconditional love.”

Mohanji, truly is unconditional. Pranams to my Guru who shows us the right path every time, in all circumstances. Thank you Mohanji. Koti pranams at your lotus feet.

Surrender and let go

Mohanji bow

By Shefali Magan, India

The experience of waiting to expect good news in a couple’s life nowadays is nerve-wracking. Everybody has a story and I am no different in that respect. This is the divine energy that flows within me and my husband in the journey of just two and a half months with Mohanji.

I am from Chandigarh. I have a doctorate in literature and my husband is in the army, hence currently in Pune for the last six months. I had seen Mohanji’s framed photo once at my senior colleague’s office. Before I could ask her about him, she had left the room. One other morning, I visited my gynaecologist Col. (Dr.) Nikita for a check-up as I was undergoing fertility treatment. There I saw Mohanji’s photo again, in her office, placed on a high pedestal. I used to see him daily and bow my head to pay my respects but never could gather the courage to bring up the topic of Mohanji with my doctor during the consultations.

Mohanji profile

Coming back to my follow up scans, the results of the tests weren’t satisfactory.  So this time, before I could take leave from her office, I asked reluctantly about Mohanji’s photo on the shelf and his divine eyes which seemed to be all around us. That was the day Dr. Nikita showed me the path of purity, faith, and surrender to our Mohanji.  Wasn’t this reason enough to thank my doctor who selflessly guided me to chant and pray to Mohanji for the betterment of my health?  And I always felt that sometimes, against all odds, and against all logic, we still hope.

During the strict lockdown, a few months back, I was missing my own father dearly, who passed away three years back. And soon after my treatment with Dr. Nikita restarted, through her benevolent nature, I got the opportunity to get connected to Mohanji. Shukran (gratitude) to our beloved Mohanji, for blessing me and helping me in my life by being someone whom I can bank upon like my own heavenly Father.

As a result, my subsequent scans slowly and gradually started getting better. A few months back, my egg quality and quantity were not at all up to the mark. But due to Dr. Nikita’s faith and Mohanji’s grace, the quality and the number both increased. We are simple people and for me and my husband, it was a miracle in my case. I was overjoyed and relieved to the point of tears. The cycle culminated in the retrieval of 14 eggs. What was more impressive was that Dr. Nikita never gave up on me. Her un-stinted support and camaraderie sailed me through this emotional journey of treatment. I am incredibly grateful to her and will always be in my life.

POP

Along with her, throughout my treatment, I walked on the path of faith and surrender to Mohanji.  Also, as suggested by her, I joined the 41 days of the Power of Purity Meditation program. That was more than a program. It transformed me inside out; my thoughts and views towards others changed, and most importantly cleansing within me happened, which we often forget to do.  Prayers work and it’s powerful. I could hear Mohanji saying to me, that he is working on my behalf when I pray to him. Isn’t it pure, divine, and unconditional love?

Once we have dared to take the plunge, very soon we realise there is nothing better than surrendering to Mohanji. I have taken a pledge to serve Mohanji throughout my life, till my last breath.

Love and gratitude

Shree Mohanji

Enjoy reading these three beautiful expressions of gratitude from our Mohanji family members. Mohanji says his presence is always with us, but we are not always aware of it. These experiences show us yet again that when the yearning is true, he makes sure that his love and grace is felt by us.

Jameela Jeyaraj, India

When I dived into an abyss of darkness and sadness a year back, my friend Mala insisted that I read about Mohanji and gifted me the Power of Purity book.  One look into the extremely powerful eyes of Mohanji on the cover of the book, and time just stood still.

While reading the book, curiously I tried out the Power of Purity meditation, and amazingly, Mohanji’s divine soulful voice transported me into a world of absolute silence and peace.  I love the meditation so much, I practice it often. Through the meditation, I have learned to bless all, people I love and those whom I thought I hated.

Through the Power of Purity meditation, I have learned to evolve to a higher frequency. It also kindles me into the path of spiritualism. Today, I have only expressions of gratitude and gratefulness to my greatest Master, Mohanji.  Without doubt, I am so blessed. I place my koti pranams at Mohanji’s lotus feet.

“Gratitude.Grace. Growth. They are all related and interconnected. Gratitude ensures Grace. Grace ensures Growth. These three aspects deliver LOVE, LIFE and GODLINESS in us.” – Mohanji

Deborah Davidson, Canada

On Thursday, April 9 2020, I was sitting with my tablet muted ready to begin the morning’s 7 am chanting with Eric and Cini, here in Victoria. Sara Sydney joined us this morning.

My phone was sitting on my left, a foot or more away, face up black screen when I saw the screen flash. I had not touched it since signing into the Zoom session. What appeared was a photo of Mohanji and Sai Baba. Two photos superimposed on each other.

Sai was in profile facing right in the foreground. Mohanji was in the background facing forward. They were both wearing headscarves of deep blue and the background was a deeper blue, almost purple.

It stayed on my screen but was gone when we finished the Gayatri Mantra chanting and I cannot find it anywhere in my history on the phone.

What I do have is a deep sense of peace and well-being as it should be with the world, and a strong heart presence of both Mohanji and Sai in my life, with us as we chanted. The beautifully vivid image is stored in my heart.

mohanji-and-sai

Jai Mohanji! Jai Sai Baba! With love, awe, and gratitude.

 

Pravin Thakkar, UK

I am always with you – these are the words we hear time and again from our beloved Mohanji. It was my 70th birthday on the 17th of November. During the whole day, I felt that I really needed to talk to Mohanji and receive his blessings, but for some reason I did not have the courage to either message him or call him.

On the 19th, I read on the Mohanji UK Facebook page that there had been a Mohanji Acharya programme held on the 17th, on the same day as my milestone birthday. It was at the request of a Mohanji family member who wanted to celebrate her birthday and also wanted her friends and relatives to experience Mohanji’s presence and energy through the Acharya programme. At the cake cutting ceremony, Mohanji Acharya Subhasree played a recorded voice message from Mohanji, blessing this lady on her birthday.

I read this on Tuesday night before I went to sleep. Early Wednesday morning, I had a beautiful experience. I am not sure whether I was in a dream state or awake, but Mohanji was speaking to me, and telling me that on my birthday he called me many times to bless me but did not get reply on my mobile phone, neither could he leave a voice message for me with a blessing (I had blocked my voice message). My wish to have Mohanji’s blessings was fulfilled so beautifully.

Once again, I am reminding myself of the need for constantly becoming aware of the countless little pesky flaws in my nature that stand in the way of making my inner aspirations more sincere, true, and complete.

I feel immensely grateful to our ever compassionate Father, Mohanji. My humble prostrations at your lotus feet.

An attitude of gratitude

mohanji-m-org

Two lovely ladies from the Mohanji family share with us their expressions of deep gratitude to Mohanji, for his love and protection in their lives every moment in time. 

“What can be the highest prayer? The prayer of gratitude. Those who are grateful are also graceful. They are filled with Grace.” – Mohanji

Kim Khim, South Africa

As you all know, I tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. I was tested on the 17th of March and received the results on the 23rd. As you can well imagine, I was shocked and quite gutted by the news. I was put onto medication to treat my immediate flu-like symptoms and sent home to rest. I have spent all my time between then and now, in relative isolation.

During this lockdown/isolation period, I have had much time to reflect on my life and my spiritual journey.

It’s been a time of deep introspection, where one really looks at what is really important to one, and who is important to one. In my case, I too had to really face my mortality. There were moments where I thought if this is the end of the line for me, then so be it. I will go peacefully and gracefully. It has not been easy, and at times my breathing was a problem, but somehow I have managed to pull through this.

fears

I do believe that one’s faith and strength of mind are the two weapons against this pandemic. If you look inside and you turn to your God/faith/Guru etc., you will find all your answers and you will find peace in this time of crisis.

I have stuck with my vegetarian/vegan eating. I have taken many supplements like NAC, zinc, Vit C, propolis, and enjoyed the lemon/ginger teas that my beautiful daughters have schlepped up to me on a daily basis. I have been incredibly fortunate to have the love and support of my children, my mother, family, my dearest friends, and of course the Mohanji family who have unwaveringly been there for me with Mai-Tri, meditations, words of encouragement and upliftment.

Milica, Delo, Julie and Sjarn just kept bringing me back into the light, each time I fell apart. My daughters have been undeniably my two rocks. They have fed me and nursed me, looked after me like you would an infant. It’s just been a life-changing experience, where I as the parent, became their charge, and they took complete responsibility with no fear, and just became the most amazing two moms to me.

With all this being said, I have now tested negative to this virus. I have recovered from it. I still have a way to go in terms of complete healing of my lungs (as I am asthmatic). Please all be safe! And thank you for your messages, prayers and good wishes. It’s this energy which saved my life!

Thank you to our beloved Mohanji, who kept me in his hand and protected me. I know that you are always with me!

Anonymous, India

I would like to share a miracle which happened a few days ago. I was preparing a sweet dish with rice, moong dal and jaggery. Rice and dal were getting cooked in one pan and in another pan, the syrup of jaggery was getting ready. The rice and dal mixture was ready and the jaggery syrup was boiling and almost ready.

gratitude

Before I could remove the syrup and pour it into the rice and dal mixture, I don’t know what happened, the pan in which the jaggery syrup was boiling, slipped from the gas cooker and the hot syrup fell on my right foot. You may wonder what happened next. The syrup should have got stuck to my foot and burnt it and I would have been howling in pain. But why fear when Para Brahma Mohanji is there.

Nothing that you might have expected to happen turned true. The syrup which fell on my foot didn’t give me the slightest discomfort. I didn’t feel the heat, nor was there any mark on my foot. I just washed my foot and there was no trace of anything! Of course, I had to clean my kitchen many times.

I am sure it was our Mohanji who had come and saved me from what could have been a bad accident.  Thank you so much for saving me and for always being there when I need you.

Love you loads, dearest Mohanji.

Acceptance and Faith

By Nameshri Chetty, South Africa

Mohanji says that before birth, we choose each moment of our life. In times of challenges, we think, “Oh my hat! What possessed me to choose these experiences.” With the awareness of acceptance and faith, life becomes easier to embrace.

In Jan 2017, my son was diagnosed with Lymphoma. It was something that came out of the blue; we were just starting to get into the rhythm of living as a single mom of two children. My first call was to Mohanji even before the diagnosis had been made. Right from the onset, Mohanji had advised me to go with the process, listen to the doctor regarding medical treatment. I had handled many challenges, but this challenge concerning my child was totally new. Being a single mother firstly is not the easiest. When moments like this come up, without support from the father, it really tests your metal. There is no one else to help take the strain off or rather share the weight of the experience.

Mohanji bless

Mohanji had been my only strength throughout this period. I found strength in the fact that I knew he was supporting me and my children. Each chemo, I went in with full faith that all will be well. Everything seemed seamless and the process flew by. I was very composed through it all. There was an inherent calmness that came over me; it was the thought of knowing that Mohanji was already overseeing everything. I remember him saying that we have to go through this as it is karmic. I felt as if even my responsibilities with my daughter seemed to flow smoothly, allowing me to fulfil my duties.

From the time of diagnosis, getting a specialist immediately, starting treatment within 2 weeks of diagnosis, having the courage to live life normally, this was all Mohanji’s grace. Mohanji helped me get through this life experience with total detachment and full acceptance. There was no time for self-pity, only purpose was felt.

acceptance

In June 2017, my son was free of cancer; it was shocking how time had flown by. When I look back, I had cut myself off everything and everyone, my only focus was getting my children/family through this. My only strength undoubtedly was Mohanji.

In his teachings, he constantly reminds us of faith and acceptance. This was a true example of this teaching. I was willing to accept any outcome as I had faith that it was as it should be.

faith

Mere Mahadev (My Lord Shiva), I surrender graciously and humbly at your feet as you are the beginning and end of all that is and all that is not.

I glide on the breath of your grace.

Kalpataru Series – A day of grace and gratitude

Mohanji Laughing

By Chitra A S, Kerala, India

Mohanji has always taken care of our wishes, small or big. We realise at some point how beautifully he fulfills our wishes. I am thankful to the Kalpataru – Mohanji, The wish-fulfilling treeseries through which I would like to share how some of my wishes have been fulfilled by Mohanji and his instruments.

I had been noticing on FB the photos of Gapless Breathing done in various places. I always wondered how can I experience this powerful technique given by Mohanji. Since this is a very special technique, it only happens either on Retreats or in Acharya Programs by Mohanji Acharyas, that too only by a few who are trained. We did not have any Acharyas in Kerala who could do it. I felt I will receive this when I am eligible. So, I surrendered my wish to Mohanji.

A few days later, I messaged Subhasree and I thought of inquiring more about this training. By the end of the conversation, we had an Acharya program planned in Kochi in about 8 days, where she would conduct Gapless Breathing! She was only briefly landing at Kochi airport en route to her in-law’s place and such a program was not in her agenda earlier! I had no words to say besides thanks to Mohanji for fulfilling my wish so soon through his Acharya.

There was barely one week to arrange the program! We had no idea how many people would attend at such short notice. Nevertheless, we decided to keep it simple, organising it in my house and I conveyed the information with all the people locally that I knew. Subhasree was happy with the arrangements and we finalised the program. I was on top of the world. I could see how beautifully Mohanji was arranging this, as that day it was also the special Bhagavat Gita day and Guruvayur Ekadasi. I felt this was Mohanji’s immense blessing for me to arrange such an event at our home. Mohanji was not only fulfilling my wish, but he also blessed me with such an opportunity. I say it was Mohanji’s blessings because we were in a dilemma of whether to arrange a hall or to do at home, as we only had very few days and not enough publicity. I finally, did a ‘lucky dip’ in front of Mohanji’s photo to see where this program should be conducted – in the hall or at my house,  and the answer was ‘at your house.’

As the days were passing, initially, I was a bit worried about getting enough participants. Then I realised why should I worry about it? It is Mohanji’s program and Mohanji should decide on who can join the program. I surrendered wholeheartedly to Mohanji. I am just a participant here and was very excited as my wish of experiencing Gapless Breathing was getting fulfilled.

Subhasree and I
Subhasree and I

 

Mohanji heard me. My anxiety of who will be the attendees of this programme was taken care of him in such an amazing way. It was a leela of Krishna himself, which I realised a bit later. I wish to share with all of you some incidents that happened during this arrangement and the program.

One of my friends from our M family gave me her friend’s contact number to invite her and I made a call to that person. The lady on the other side felt sad because she had booked to travel to Bangalore and so would not be able to attend the program. I messaged my M friend about it and she asked me to call her again to request her to share the information about this program with her group of friends. So, again I called that lady. I could hear the lady sobbing and she started talking to me, “Madam, I was thinking about ending my life when you called me first!” I was shocked as she shared her story. I talked to her for fifteen minutes (Although using ‘I’, the words that were spoken to her for soothing her pain was entirely chosen by Mohanji) and she changed her unnecessary thoughts of suicide. I promised her a Power of Purity Meditation session soon. For me, it was a big shock initially which turned out to be a surprise at the end and I realised that Mohanji had operated through me.

After 4 days, I felt like calling a retired teacher who had come for a Power of Purity Meditation previously to my house, but she also had to attend a wedding that day. She, however, asked me for a Mai-Tri session for her neighbour some days later. But again, in the evening, for some reason I felt like calling her again to call her and invite her to attend the program in the afternoon if possible, with that neighbour. While I had slight hesitation thinking if it will look like I am persuading people to attend, later that evening I called her. I told her to avail of this great opportunity and asked her whether she really had to attend the wedding (did I just say that?). She cried saying that the wedding was not at all important and she needed to attend the program of Mohanji and shared a brief history of hers in a hurry. This came as a shock to me! I then realised it was indeed Mohanji who wanted me to contact her! But, my ego wasn’t allowing me to do so for hours. So, the Tradition decides who should attend, for sure.

(This inspiring quote was sent to me by our Anitha Nandakumar when I conducted a POP Meditation at my house previously).

While the preparation for the event was going on, I had messaged Subhasree that I only had a Malayalam version of the book, ‘The Power of Purity‘. She spontaneously suggested that she would bring some books with her.

Finally, the day came, Subhasree arrived in Kochi and we received her from the airport and brought her to our house. After a short break and refreshments, we were ready to start the program. I was already feeling so happy that in spite of the short notice, we were about 10 of us. Before starting the program, Subhasree handed me the following things. I was delighted and speechless. I couldn’t get the words to thank her. I hadn’t expected her to bring all these things for me. A program of Mohanji in my house itself was more than anything I could have expected! This in itself was a surprise for the whole family and the participants who would be present that day!

books

 

I was speechless to see yet another leela of Mohanji and how he fulfilled my wish!

Yes, I had wished to get Guru Leela books and I also needed Mohanji’s cards, which I had struggled to get hold of. It was so sweet of Subhasree to bring all these things from the UK for me, which I understood that Mohanji fulfilling even this wish of mine. These were not simply books and cards, but pieces of evidence that Mohanji listens to us and fulfills our wishes.

As I started reciting the Bhagavat Gita and the Vishnu Sahasranama, slowly the rest of the participants joined me and we completed the chanting with devotion and focus.

Next was the power-packed Gapless Breathing session. Blood started circulating rapidly in the body during the session, which can be seen in the photos (all the faces were red). We could exactly experience the feeling of being a baby in a mother’s womb, feeling protected by our mother, thus giving us an assurance that all of us were within our favourite God or Guru and were protected by him/her.

gapless breathing

After the lunch break, we had the Group Mai-Tri session. This technique is also very special and for the first time, we were blessed to experience this. Only a few Mai Tri practitioners can conduct these group sessions. Once again, we were soaked in the powerful energy of beeja mantras, calling Dattatreya, Kali Maa, and Mohanji, and invoking the entire Guru Mandali. I really enjoyed this and didn’t want it to be over. But, the time flew by so fast and it was time to wind up.

When we offered Aarati to Mohanji, my eyes were filled with tears of gratitude, devotion and total surrender. I couldn’t thank him enough for fulfilling my wishes with so much compassion and even giving me more than I expected.

After a tea break, everyone shared their experiences on both the sessions and Subhasree shared many Guru Leelas of Mohanji. Inspired by her, we all started to discuss our own experiences and we all felt joyful and rejuvenated after the powerful sessions. All the attendees were new to Gapless Breathing and the group Mai-Tri. Everyone felt high positive energy throughout the sessions. Some were new and hadn’t seen Mohanji yet. Gapless Breathing was breath purifying and group Mai-Tri was deeply cleansing.

These were the lovely words spoken by the participants.

“I was feeling tired and now I am feeling energetic and happy.”

“At the end of the session, my heart was filled with love, I felt joy and the pain in my leg seems to have decreased.”

“I’m feeling peaceful, silence and happy.”

“I saw Mohanji holding my hands firmly and went down some steps, and then saw myself with my family having some discussion. I’m also having a deep sleep.”

“I’m feeling happy and contented.”

“I have asthma, but now I am feeling comfortable after the breathing session. The group Mai-Tri felt powerful and I want to have individual Mai-Tri soon.”

“Earlier I had breathing trouble and I thought I had some heart issues. After Gapless Breathing, I’m feeling comfortable. Sometimes I used to feel negative energy and I felt like it was going away during group Mai-Tri. I’m feeling free and positive now.”

“I’m feeling happy, peaceful and grateful for having experienced such a beautiful session. It was an awesome experience. I used to sleep at 2 am because of the high humidity with only a few hours of sleep, but after this program, I’m sleeping well from about 9.30/10.30 pm.”

Thank you to Subhasree for being Mohanji’s instrument in conducting this beautiful program at my home.

My humble pranaams to you Mohanji, please let your grace be available to everyone through all of us. May everyone reading this post receive abundant grace from Mohanji and the Guru Mandali.

The Amazing Grace of the Master

Grace

By Ulla Bernholdt

In a month, I will be attending Mohanji’s Acharya training program in Serbia. This is a milestone for me, and I find it to be a good opportunity to look back on the year that has gone by in Mohanji’s Consciousness. Yes indeed, can you believe that just a year ago I had barely even heard of Mohanji!

I think it is important to keep track of our experiences, for the sake of remembering the grace of the Masters that made the journey possible, if we ever come to doubt how blessed we are.

Ulla 3

Like so many others who have met Mohanji in dreams, I am no exception. Before I met him, or consciously connected to Mohanji, I had a dream in which he appeared: We were seated outside in a garden, on a bench. Mohanji sat in the middle, a blond woman and I sat on either side of him. I leaned my head on his shoulder. The atmosphere was very loving and serene.

When I woke up, I was quite shocked. – It was a fact that I, in the dream leaned my head on his shoulder. To me, this suggests an act and a disposition of total surrender. – So, when I awoke, my mind went “Wait a minute, what is going on? I don’t know this man at all. I have never met him. How could I possibly surrender to him? Who is he by the way? What does all this mean?”

There was a difference of approach to Mohanji in my waking state and my dreams. In my dream, I had no problem with doubt or resistance. Mohanji works on subtle levels which are unknown to us.

In another testimony, I have told how Mohanji appeared to my inner eye in a temple high in the Swiss Alps, and how this made me want to go and meet him physically.

I went on the Himalayan retreat in Rishikesh, where I met Mohanji for the first time. Initially, I was quite skeptical towards him and the whole process that he offered. How do you know if a teacher is genuine? He suggests that we find out ourselves instead of listening to the opinions of others.

Ulla 2

I had much resistance towards guided meditations, Conscious Walking and Kriya. – No, this path I thought, was not for me!

But then, at a Satsang at the end of the program, I felt a big shift in consciousness. Thoughts disappeared. All of a sudden there were no memories to identify with. What was left was just empty space, awareness and a deep knowing that no matter what life or even death will bring, I will remain the same, nothing can affect me, I am eternal. Looking at Mohanji, there was no difference between us, not even a relationship between two separate beings existed.

Consciousness

I was in a state of silent bliss which lasted a little less than a week. – Mohanji tells us, that if a state is not permanent, it does not belong to us. It was an experience, and like all other experiences, it did not last. But this was a life-changing one, and it leads me to conviction, trust and faith in the path and the Master.

This state of induced samadhi has nothing really to do with me, but everything to do with Mohanji, it shows the stature of our Master, where he is capable of leading you. Now I do not doubt that He is connected to the Source, that He is one with the Source. He is Shiva or Consciousness itself. This is His Divine gift and revelation. It is a priceless gift, given free to everyone. Out of unconditional love and compassion, he gives himself fully.

Just think about it; that moment in time I did not consider to become a follower of Mohanji, on the contrary, I was rather skeptical, but still, this gift was given to me freely, a newcomer and a mere beginner. What an amazing Grace to receive! Again, this tells me about his stature, that there is no limitation to His love. All we need to do is to be open and in a disposition of surrender for the Grace to flow. Where that Grace will lead us, we have no idea.

No need to say that this event has had a major impact on me. Mohanji cleared so much suffering and agony in me. Since I connected with him, a lot of fear and negativity has gone. In fact, before I met Mohanji, I felt so negative, I didn’t care much if I lived or died, it all seemed such a waste of time.

mohanji-liberation

That has certainly changed. Awareness, self-acceptance and a strong sense of purpose have taken over my life. Through this, I was able to do some major life changes and find the courage to end abusive relationships, so that I was able to focus on positivity only. People keep telling me they noticed how much I have changed, and for the better, so it is very obvious to see even from the outside.

This I could never have done myself through any act or self-effort. Throughout the years, I have tried several therapies, healing modalities and spiritual paths, but none of them were able to clear the inherent negativity in me.

awareness

I have encountered immense love and support from other devotees in the M Family, who have treated me like their own. For months, I would go and meet Subhashree from London while she was working in Copenhagen. Being a pure instrument of Mohanji, she supported me in a selfless way, mentoring and helping me set up meditations in Denmark. She, her family and other devotees in the UK and India have kindly supported me in all kinds of ways, giving me job opportunities and opening up their homes for me to stay, without knowing me, trusting in me, only by the grace of Mohanji.

These are the blessings that are so obvious to me. I can see and feel their transforming effects every day. But the blessings that we are oblivious to might be even greater. What do we know in the end? Nothing! Sometimes I wonder what my life would be like if I was able to surrender fully to our Master. I pray to him that I will be able to do that by his amazing Grace.

Meeting my Guru

Mohanji and Bojana 2

by Bojana Fabel

 It was in 2015, that I first met Mohanji, in Macedonia. This is how it all happened.

I had seen a Facebook advertisement, which said, “Satsang with Mohanji” and that it would be held in Skopje. I said to myself – “Oh, this is a great opportunity to finally be present at a real-life satsang!” I had watched satsangs of other Masters, Gurus and Acharyas, but only on YouTube.

I knew that Ziate, my high school friend was already connected to Mohanji. So, I immediately enquired about the same from him. He encouraged me and asked me to definitely attend the satsang.

I then contacted Zoran (Hanummatananda) to secure my place, and soon enough the day came when for the first time, I saw Mohanji. He was seated on his white chair, on a higher platform, dressed in white, talking and answering questions to a room full of people.

Mohanji and Bojana

I still remember our very first eye-contact. He looked straight into my eyes, with a childish, yet fierce look. When I left the room after the satsang, I was enveloped with a feeling of purity, lightness and happiness, just like I would feel in my childhood days, so pure and blissful. That night, I had slept like a baby!

On the second day of the satsang, I was very happy to go back and meet Mohanji again. Not to forget, I was amazed at how calm He was, and more so, to see Him seated with His spine erect. I wanted to be like Him. (I am not joking).

mind

But to the contrary, while the satsang was on, I felt like I wanted to escape from this room, leave and run, as fast as I could, as something was happening to me! I was having a FULL BLOWN anxiety attack. Here, I must mention that I had gone through anxiety and panic attacks, the whole of the previous year, and you cannot imagine the terror I was going through in the mind and body sitting in front of a Guru, with an expectation that everything will be perfect. Instead, I was having an attack AGAIN! It was really hard.

recognise yourself

But all of a sudden, an unknown inner power woke up in me, which said – “NO YOU ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE, YOU ARE STAYING HERE”. I suddenly felt strong and so I remained seated. I had won over an anxiety attack for the very first time after two years of suffering! This was the last anxiety I ever experienced, since then.

I believe that the last attack was meant to cleanse my system, in front of my Guru, by my Guru. It’s difficult to believe, complicated to understand unless some clarity appears and one sees the whole picture. It’s a secret that has stayed with the Gods and Mohanji, that He never shared with me.

But, all I know is, I am free from these attacks.

 

 The year of bliss

Ever since I met Mohanji, for the first time in 2015 (the year of transformation in His presence), I have been in a constant state of bliss, without any particular reason.

That year, I would wake up happy every day and spread smiles to the world. Every morning, I would share my experiences with Mohanji and many spiritual conversations with my father, during those beautiful sunny mornings in our lovely home garden. I call the year 2015, “The year of Bliss”.

The conditions in which I lived in Macedonia were far from perfect. I lived in an isolated village, where I had to travel for hours every day. This was after having lived in places, such as Geneva, in Switzerland; London, in the UK; and Singapore; where life was easier and far more convenient. Absence of conveniences of a well-developed city did not bother or affect me in any way. All I knew was – I was in Mohanji’s consciousness and He was taking care of my well-being at various levels.

It will always remain a mystery, the way Mohanji worked on me to miraculously bring me out of those two long years of suffering from deep anxiety and panic attacks, by just being in His presence for a day or two! I will never be able to explain this to anyone, apart from a few of my closest people, who had seen the change in me. Later, they too started following Mohanji and even met Him physically.

Guru is a principle which can operate through any medium, any being or any situation. Guru needn’t even be a walking, talking being. It can even be an understanding which happens in your mind. It can be the tree, or the leaves, or the wind. Certain revelations happen when we see certain things”. – Mohanji

As the days went by, I kept soaking in Mohanji’s consciousness, unlearning and letting go of the mind itself and transforming, for which I shall always remain at His lotus feet with deep gratitude.

flow with life

I must admit, that sometimes, I am gripped by this thought – “I am not any special being. Then, what is it that I have done in this life or past lives to deserve His divine love and protection?” I truly don’t know where would I be and how life would’ve been, without His grace and unconditional love.

I must also mention how His unconditional love was filling my own unfulfilled self-love needs, probably far more beyond what the eyes can see.

I look at Mohanji as God’s miracle and I hope that I am conscious enough to appreciate His presence in my life. I know that whatever I do will never be enough to honour the grace bestowed upon me, but I will keep striving to be my best forever.

I love you Mohanji!

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 9 – Divine umbrella of love and care

mohanji-on-spirituality

We bring to you the sixth story in the Mohanji Satcharita series – Chapter 9. Deepali Bais narrates one of her innumerable experiences in which she has felt Mohanji’s loving presence. 

For more such stories, click here:

Divine umbrella of love and care

By Deepali Bais

Spirituality is a very interesting journey and for us, it has unfolded many tales which are embedded deep in our hearts. Since the time we have been associated with Mohanji i.e. since 2012, there have been innumerable experiences showing His loving presence in our lives. We always thought of cherishing it in our hearts, but of late the need for sharing has become important as our loving Mohanji never expects anything in return.

The experience I share here is special in many ways.

Life puts us through seemingly difficult phases to check our preparation for the next phase and to gauge our reaction through these testing times. A situation unfolded with us recently when our son came back from playing on the evening of 31st Jan 2019.

Generally, we don’t expect many visitors in the evening, hence when the doorbell rang in three quick successions, we were alarmed. Before my husband (Anurag) could reach the door, my son could not wait any longer and turned the latch and gave one big push to the door and it sprang open. During the next few seconds, I could hear a conversation between Anurag and my son. Anurag announced that we have to take him immediately to the hospital as it appeared to be a fracture in his arm. Then I noticed my son holding his left arm with his right hand and writhing in pain. He told that whilst taking a turn, he had slipped and fallen from his bicycle and one bhaiya (elder boy) dropped him home by carrying his bicycle. He was gasping for breath. Anurag washed his face and gave him a glass of water to drink while I got ready.

The moment I saw him crying with pain, tears rolled down my cheeks and I broke down. Without any reminder, I started chanting the mantra given to me by Mohanji in 2012. This mantra has become a part of my life since 2012 and for a long time. I have never felt the need to chant it consciously and loudly as it would repeat itself within me in auto mode effortlessly, very much similar to our breath.

I was continuously chanting the mantra and remembering our beloved Mohanji. We all know we need not tell Him or ask help from Him. He is protecting us 24×7, but the mother in me was worried about seeing my child in pain.

Various thoughts crossed my mind as we were getting ready to go to the hospital. Since his exams were near, our worries started compounding. Anurag put a cloth under my son’s arm and tied it up carefully around his neck to give him some comfort.

Mohanji I am

As Mohanji says,

I am always around you and you need to just “SWITCH ON”.

Within a span of 10 minutes during our drive to the hospital, I started feeling strong vibrations on my forehead along with a mild circular motion on the third eye. I am sure many can relate to this feeling/sensation. This is how I have felt Mohanji’s energy from the time we have been connected with Him. My eyes became really heavy. I felt strong vibrations and shivers in the whole body and I knew He was around, protecting us. During all this, I continued chanting.

The moment we reached the hospital, it was 20:00 and hence only the Duty Doctor was available. The doctor called the radiology department duty person and asked him to take an X-Ray. I was sitting in the waiting room chanting and my husband took my son for an X-ray.

The first X-Ray showed some signs of a fracture and when Anurag announced it to me, my heart sank. Somehow I felt that something was not convincing but looking at the X-Ray, I didn’t raise any queries. During all this, I continuously felt Mohanji’s presence around me and also the assurance that all is fine.

The doctor then sent the photo of the X-Ray to the Orthopedic specialist to seek his opinion. The specialist asked him to take an X-Ray of the right hand too along with the X-Ray of the left hand from other angles.

As we were waiting for the specialist’s opinion, we were mentally prepared for the cast being put on the left arm and the possible consequences in the near future due to final exams just around the corner. Anurag had also taken an appointment for renewal of passport for my son a day prior and had already paid the fee. He and my son were to appear at the Passport Office the next day i.e. on 01 Feb 2019. So he was thinking of cancelling the appointment and was mentally making plans for a future appointment which would be possible only after the exams. He was worried since taking an appointment is really difficult and to cancel the appointment, he has to go through all the procedures again.

As the photos of subsequent X-rays were also relayed to the specialist we waited for his opinion. Suddenly the news came that it was not a fracture, but only a tissue or muscle damage. A sense of relief and euphoria engulfed me although a requirement to put a cast was still there to allow the tissue some time to heal. It felt as though a heavy load was lifted from my head as soon as I got to hear this. Additionally, it was a slab for minor support to the hand and not a complete cast.

Mohanji

Within a span of 30 minutes, things changing from a fracture to tissue damage WAS SO MAGICAL. Though the healing and treatment took some time, the way Mohanji had reduced the impact is difficult to put in words. We have no words to explain the feeling. This is how masters operate and protect you in difficult times. We are indebted by the unconditional love showered by Mohanji.

After the cast was put, the doctor asked us to take an appointment with the specialist for the next day and then we left the hospital. Next day, Anurag took our son to the Orthopaedic specialist where he reiterated his stand that it was not a fracture and instructed us to continue with the cast for the next three weeks. Anurag mentioned to me later that when they left the hospital at around 10:30 hrs, he thought of giving a try at the passport office for his appointment as well. An appointment was scheduled at 11:15 hrs.

token
Token with the number 108

Though slightly late, they started at around 11:00 hrs and reached the venue at around 11:30 hrs. They both managed to enter the office. Then an interesting thing happened. As they were waiting to show the documents, a token had to be generated. This token is your identity as one goes through various phases of verification. Hence, after checking the documents at the first counter, the token was generated which showed in big bold letters “108” thus signifying Mohanji’s presence throughout the ordeal. All the necessary paperwork was completed and his application was accepted.

Anurag mentioned to me that since the morning, he was mentally remembering Mohanji, both at the hospital and also during the appointment at the passport office. The entire sequence of events is proof that Mohanji’s grace is always available waiting to be tapped. Life generally goes through various ups and downs in a cyclic manner with few spikes (signifying testing times). These spikes have an inherent tendency to test your mental toughness so that you witness your every move as you tide over the situation. This situation reminds me of the scene from the movie “Life of Pi” where the main character in the middle of a cyclone, pleads with God to test him more. During these testing times, one’s connection with Mohanji is the only real and unbreakable connection which helps one to sail through.  

So when the number 108 appeared on the sheet of paper, it brought tears in Anurag’s eyes. He was spellbound. He stood motionless for a moment in that crowded room as if time had stopped. A gush of fresh air filled his lungs and assured him of Mohanji’s presence which ultimately led to the completion of this complicated paper action. Such is the grace of Mohanji that we cannot comprehend. I bow down to Mohanji and the universal energy which is manifesting through Him.

Words are less to encompass Mohanji’s grace and stature. We are blessed to have Him in our lives.

Pranaams at His lotus feet!

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 9 – “Flow with Life”

flow forward

In this series of Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 9, We bring to you a recent incident in Sreeja’s life where she felt the grace and protection of Mohanji during very trying times.

 

Please read other Mohanji Satcharita stories from this Chapter!

 

Flow with life…….

By Sreeja Ranjit

 

“I SEE YOU WHEN YOU SEE ME…
I SEE YOU EVEN WHEN YOU DON’T SEE ME…
I AM ALWAYS WITH YOU…
WATCHING YOU… PROTECTING YOU….” – Mohanji

Mohanji always keeps His word. He is always with us in consciousness, protecting us from unknown dangers that lurk in the dark. I have no words to express my gratitude for His protection 24/7.

Our family, comprising of my husband, myself and our son have recently moved to Ethiopia as my husband got a job here. It has only been two months since we have joined my husband. It’s a new place and we are only getting to know the place slowly. Mohanji always says to accept changes wholeheartedly without resistance and to just flow where destiny takes us. So, even though things were difficult here compared to India, we were adapting to the whole new atmosphere well.

letting go

Then suddenly, this June 22nd night, attackers shot and killed the governor and two other top government officials in Ethiopia. On the same night in Addis Ababa, the country’s army chief and his close friend, a retired army general were assassinated inside his residence by his bodyguard. 6 top government officials were also assassinated on the same night, throwing the country into a lot of anger, fear and helplessness. They disabled all phone connections the same night for security reasons.

The 23rd morning we woke up with no data connectivity either through Wi-Fi or mobile, and no calls if you left the city limits. No incoming calls from outside the country either. My husband was supposed to travel at 5 am by a flight on June 24th to two of the regions most affected by the incident and where riots would soon start off. I shudder to think what would have happened if this incident had happened after he left. We would be totally cut off from him. On top of that, the US embassy had issued alerts about reported gunfire in the capital Addis Ababa, and violence around Amhara’s main city Bahir Dar. Everybody was asked to stay at home. But as usual, beloved Mohanji took care that we remained safe and sound.

Now, things don’t end there. My husband’s Superior called up and said it’s going to be the month end, these kinds of things will happen and he should be on the next flight on June 25th. We were shocked. We could not believe our ears in fact. My husband argued that it’s not safe and the nation was on a blackout and alerts were on local news channels not to travel etc. Also, he can’t make calls from there due to no network connectivity and he can’t leave his family alone. But all his pleadings fell on deaf ears. I got really scared as then we have to stay alone here in the independent villa we have rented without any connection with the world outside and was really scared about his going to a place which was not considered safe. Any time riots can break out. I cried out to Mohanji as usual and kept praying ceaselessly to help us in this situation. Only He could help us.

My husband called me on the way to book the tickets as the online booking was not happening as the internet had been blocked. We were blocked for 10 days with no connectivity. Airport officials had asked him to come directly and book the flight. Flights were running as scheduled. I started praying to Mohanji and in between our conversations had complete faith that He will take care.

And yes, He did. All flights had been cancelled from the next day! Until the day my husband went to enquire and book his flight, all flights had flown out at correct timings. When he gave me a call to inform me about this miracle, I knew in my heart my beloved Mohanji had taken care as usual. We also came to know that the Superior had been asked to leave the company for a different set of reasons.

Grace

Another issue while trying to settle down in the new country was also taken care of by Mohanji. My son had given the admission test for his 7th-grade school enrollment. There is only one good school here which follows the Cambridge syllabus and admission is tough. We got to know they were not taking any new admissions for the 7th grade as it was already full. I was sad but then suddenly remembered Mohanji’s words.

Whatever happens, just accept and go with the flow. – Mohanji

I mentally prayed to Mohanji to let whatever is best for him to happen. I felt really better afterwards and we decided to wait a few more days and to send him back to India. But within 2 days, we got a call from the school saying that he was admitted and he was the only one whom they had selected out of the 10 students who wrote the test. I cannot express in words the immense gratitude to my beloved Guru Mohanji who is omnipresent and silently there with us all the time.

Mohanji always takes care. It is for us to see His grace and protection and own our experiences.

Thank you Mohanji for showering your grace, love and protection on us always.

Koti koti pranaams at your lotus feet.
Jai jai Mohanji…sharanam sharanam Mohanji.

be cool
